The Longdogs

The Longdogs
Harley takes his role as navigator seriously!

On To Potter's Creek TX

Thursday morning we headed out Park Road 4 toward Burnett and then on down Hwy 281 towards Potter's Creek.  Birdie led the way in "Suite Pea" closely followed by "Herbie".  The Traveling Longdogs were sawing logs as soon as we got on the highway.

An interested crowd gathered to watch while I backed the 5th wheel into our site at Potter's Creek.  The doxies love to watch the deer, especially Willy, and they rarely bark at them.  We had to check out a couple of sites because some of them really need to have branches trimmed unless, of course, you want to sit out in the open at some of the sites you can see in the background.  Lots of the big motorhomes like those for the clear satellite positions.

Birdie was already settled into her favorite site by the time I was parked.  And several friends that spend a lot of time at Potter's Creek were awaiting her arrival back from Alaska.  I checked out her motorhome and car and there wasn't a ding anywhere and she hit most of the roads in Alaska whether paved or not.

Here we are all nestled in for the night.  Yes, it's true.  I have to head home tomorrow.

We grilled a couple of steaks and toasted a good trip with a couple of glasses of wine.  Of course, the doxies took us on several great walks too.

Note:  I ended up not leaving until 4:00PM on Thursday.  My son flew in from Florida in the morning but they were repaving in our neighborhood so my DH called and said not to come until late afternoon because the roads were all blocked.  The gate hosts were gracious enough to extend my departure time from 2:00 to 4:00PM.  Doesn't hurt a bit to have Birdie for a friend as they all know her.  Picking up the grandkids on Friday night so it will be a busy weekend.


  1. Scooter doesn't bark at the animals but they scare Skittlez so she barks to prove how big she is. It's great to go home but sad to leave the road. But what wonderful memories you have.

    1. Gretchen and Skittlez are sisters under the skin but Gretchen only does it when it's big dogs. Deer don't bother her.

  2. Oh I am so jealous! Look at that beautiful buck you got a picture of. I have been trying to get one for months here. And you know it is funny but Cooper and Effie don't bark at the deer either. If I am getting pictures of them they just sit there and stare at them. Must be a dachshund thing :)

  3. Perhaps it is a doxie thing, ours are good with deer although it has been a few years since they saw any.
