Hi everyone! We are back for another couple of events for today’s Blogville Pawlympics. First up is an event that we both are participating in and we think will need a bit of explaining. After reading today’s blog title you might be wondering what “Munro Bagging” means. Our Scottish friend Bertie is hosting this event and he describes Munro Bagging as, “a ‘Munro’ is a Scottish mountain over 3000 ft high, and if one reaches the summit one is said to have ‘Bagged a Munro’.
He had us choose a Munro to bag from an online guide to all of Scotland’s Munros. We found two with the same name, Stob Ban (which means White Peak), in different locations and went for those. Here are the pictures Bertie took of us on our chosen Munros.
Its a good thing the weather is was clear enough for me to see where we started from. As you can see there is a bit of snow up here still. It is a nice relief to be in such a cool place since back home we are having one of the hottest summers on record.
What a great hike it was to the top of my Munro. Bertie tells a harrowing tale of when his human Gail and her Westie Hamish once had a very scary time camping on this ridge in a blizzard. I’m glad there isn’t a blizzard today but it sure is nice to be somewhere cooler than home.
We sure had fun hiking in Scotland today and Bertie says we both get gold medals.
Next up Oreo is hosting the Bubble/Ball Jumping event. Originally Oreo wanted his event to be just bubble jumping but he realized that “not all dogs like bubbles so this event involves bubbles and balls.” We all know that Walter is the high flyer among us so Millie is taking a pass at this event.
Anybody that knows Walter knows that he loves to jump. As always he turned in a gold medal performance.
Please be sure to stop by the hosts for today’s events and thank them for hosting. We sure had a lot of fun competing. Come back tomorrow to see what we are competing in next.
