Hey! Where'd you go!?!?!

What? Huh? Hmmmmm.....Well, turns out, mom had something planned that didn't include me this weekend! Harumph! She went somewhere near here.....While I was at home doing this.....
And, some of THIS! My 'what was that?' look...
Mom was at a place called the Lost Trail Lodge...out of Truckee, CA....a back country, off-grid lodge in Coldstream Canyon. They had to ski in, and gear transported by snowcat and snowmobile.
Mom skiing out Sunday....on her way HOME!
Local resident, OPPIE!! This high country pal, has had 2 knee replacements! And, apparently, never gets older than about 7 years old....(so the owner of the lodge says)
And, I was back at home with this visitor, Oliver....actually a female...(has laid a few eggs).
And Mom was here...bluegrass band, ice climbing, snow skiing...can't I go!?
Every year, mom does a winter trip with the American Alpine Club. She has a fantastic time, but left me at home! What? Huh?
All's ok now...spending Sunday eve with mom and dad.
And, for some inspiring fun times...visit my pal Golden Samantha We've been meetin' up to spot the elusive fresh water otters that we saw during a walkie last week (and we haven't seen them since!) at our local Civic Center. On Sammie's site, you'll also see me 'helping' my pal check the gopher holes....:)


  1. Oops. We lost our comment.

    Be glad she left you home. That looks cold!

  2. Well Missy Sierra Rose it does look like you missed out on a most excellent time this weekend. Harsh. Though, I'm thinking your momma will probably make it up to you with extra lovin' --- if she has any energy left after that fun filled weekend!!

  3. I think woo should have been able to go along!

    I know woo have livened up things!

    I enjoyed seeing your fun with Sammie and how woo helped with those holes!


  4. WOW! How much fun your mom must have had! The peeps are super jealous. Too bad you didn't get to go, but it was pawsome to see the pictures.

    Loads of licks,

  5. Hi, Sierra Rose!
    Sorry you could not go with her! I know you love snow and that would have been pawesome for you!
    Glad you all had a great weekend!
    Kisses and hugs

  6. Wow! It looks like your mom had a great time! Bummer that you couldn't go along too, Sierra Rose! Our Uncle Chris lives in Truckee!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  7. Oppie is a bionic doggie! Looks like a swell time was had by your mom. And I think you got to enjoy some quality time with your nommy toys.


  8. Woof! I can't believe mom left you at home. But I'm glad she had a great time n you found things to keep you occupied. WOW! Your pal OPPIE looks good. n WOWY to your birdy friend, Oliver. Will sure check out Sammie's blog with your current adventure. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  9. hello sierra rose its dennis the vizsla dog hay wow oppie stays seven forever??? it must be the cryojeniks they hav up their in the mowntins!!! ok bye

  10. Awwww - sorry Sierra, but know how happy you were to have Ma home again! How absolutely beautiful this place is! And the weather totally dramatic! The X-Country Trail looks like a super highway too! Looks like a good place for pups like us as well! But Sierra, wasn't Oliver good company? Can't wait to hear more!
    Hugs xo

  11. Sounds like a wonderful weekend for mom (all except for being separated from you Sierra). When we lived in your area, we found a hut in the Sierra mountains, to be rented by one family at a time, that allowed dogs! It was about a 3 mile xc ski into it (and we had to carry our own stuff). But, it was a former fire lookout tower with incredible views (Robb's Hut), and it had propane heating and cooking stoves. It was amazing! We used to go every year at Thanksgiving and once in the spring!

  12. That was wrong that mom didn't bring you with her, especially that beautiful place! Did you chew something up to protest?

    Sam & June

  13. What? She left you? Cute faced you? She was out yukking it up and having a good ole time while you were left in charge of the whole place. I know you're glad she's home and I bet she's glad to be there too.

  14. Hi there Sierra,

    Too bad you were not able to join your mom for the trip. We're sure she missed you as much as you were thinking of her while we was away.

    Great that you were able to have a good weekend too.

    -Fudgie, Princess & the Piappies

  15. I can't believe she'd go without you!?!? Totally unfair!
    Play bows,

  16. Well, I think they should make some dog skis so you can go with her next time. We will have to Google it to see if we can find some!

  17. Well Sierra, we reckon your mom owes you big time!
    We are glad she had a good time but we reckon you should have gone too!
    love and kisses
    Martha & Bailey xxxx

  18. Well, we guess it is good for Mom to go have some fun too, but we are glad she is back home with you now. We did see you having a lot of fun out there with Sammie:)

    Woos, Phantom and Thunder

  19. Tell your Mom to try skijoring next time - it will be a great way for you and her to spend the day together!


  20. Looks like your Moms had a terrific trip!!

    Woofs and Kisses!

  21. Hiya Sierra! I gotta admit, that looked like a super duper little vacation your Mom took without you. Why without you? I dunno-don't ask me to figger out 2 leggers. I do know one thing, I've missed you! I've been really really bad about blog visits. I can't seem to get to visit anymore. I must do better. Anyway, you wanted to know what type of collar I was wearin' in my pic. It's an electronic collar from Dogtra. Mom wasn't crazy about gettin' me one but she now thinks it was a great idea. I know my commands but sometimes my attention is elsewhere and I ignore her and Dad. This has a dial that will give me anything from a vibrate reminder to a "YEE-HAH! Yes Mom what do you want?" kind of jolt. They rarely have to give me that last one anymore 'cuz I know I get one chance to obey and then I get the reminder. It gives me the freedom I need to explore and run as fast as I can so that's why Mom thinks it was a good idea. If you have any other questions, please ask!
    I'm sure you'll get to go on more snowy trips so don't worry!
    Woofs and slobbers,
    Chester ;0=)

  22. Sounds like you both had a great time! We were out in Truckee more years ago than I can count on Ruby's paws, including dew claws! Think it's time to take a trip back...

  23. You sure live in and near a land of beauty. Both in the physical world and in the love of your family. That's a couple of reasons we so enjoy coming to read your blog.

    We hope your week is going well.
    Jake and Fergi xxoo

  24. Looks like your mom had a great trip! Sorry she didn´t take you! I saw you having fun at Sammie's site! Cool!


  25. What beautiful country your mom visited. Maybe she will take you next time! I will check out Sammie's site.

    Wags and Kisses -

  26. Hi Sierra Rose! I bet your Mom really missed you tons while she was gone. That is a cool old cabin/lodge they were in. I could almost hear the music :)

    Emma Rose

  27. Sierra, I'm sure she only left you at home because it is hard for dogs to ski, you know, with having 4 feet instead of 2 ;o) Your visitor is interesting. Did you bark at her? I'm pretty sure I would have. Is she gonna hatch her eggs?

  28. I'm with you Sierra... I wish I could have gone with your Mommy too! :)

  29. Wow-beautiful pictures and lots of fun! Sorry you didn't get to go little snaggle toothed girl! I'll bet it was fun to welcome her home though!
    xoxo from the pack!


I love hearing from you!
