Nice Hike right in Custer City,,,,,,,

We have been doing our favorite hike at Stockade Lake about every morning so yesterday we decided to do a different one. We like a place that is close because we go out about 7:30 am. How about "Custer Skywalk", up by the big lighted "CUSTER" sign? Away we went.....ONE mile from our place. It was GREAT!!!! Right in our back yard!!

Here are some pictures in a slide show of the Hike. We went a little off the route and on up to the big CUSTER sign high on the hill. We have been up there before but it was a few years ago.


It was a SUPER hike, a workout, but we enjoyed it!


Many of you always ask about Ms Megabyte2. She is doing just wonderful and this is HER HOUSE! She is in Charge!!
(click on all pictures to enlarge)

When she is not asleep that is!!! She's sound asleep in the middle of our bed...

Have any of you Pet owners heard about the FURMINATOR? Let me tell you is it the DEAL. Kathy Detweiler told Pat about it right when Mega was shedding like crazy. So I started looking. You know the usual places, Craig's List, Amazon, eBay, etc. I finally found one at a good price on eBay... WOW, were we shocked. Does this thing ever work!!!

This is the FURMINATOR.

Here is the excess hair it removes with just ONE stroke..

View from the TOP.
Here is Ms Mega2 getting "stroked"!! She didn't like it at first, but soon decided it was OK. Now I think she kinda likes it!!
Does it ever remove the excess hair!!! This bucket is what we removed from her. She must be a pound lighter.. Plus, it has cut down on the shedding tremendously. I couldn't believe it. The one we have is the "small" purple one for Cats. They make others in Med and Large for Dogs.

Tom and Sally Gierisch tried ours on their 2 Cats while they visited a couple weeks or so ago. They too were amazed at how well it worked. Tom said "We have to have one of those"! Since they travel almost continually and hardly ever stop long enough to get a package, I told them to take ours and I would get another. So this is our SECOND one!!! We LOVE it!! Try it, you might like it too!! Thanks Kathy!!!

It is a GREAT WEEK!!!!

The Heritage should be here in 1 week!!! Can you believe it,,,just ONE WEEK!!!:-)


Thanks for stopping by.

Remember, tell your kids you love them, they may not be around forever!!!

We have one of those combs, but it does not work as well on our dogs. I think it works best on "smooth" coated animals. Our dogs have curly coarse hair...and we have had better success with something called a 'rake' the fingers are a little further apart...makes for easier going! I'm always amazed when I'm done...maybe we should all be donating that hair to those poor Mexican hairless pups! LOL

Loved your slideshow. That looked like a nice hike to take.

Somedoay you'll have to teach me how to put a slide show in our blog.

I could use that furminator on my own head -- maybe I wouldn't need a haircut so ofter. Hope your beard is growing back quickly, speaking of hair!

Mike,

Gina & I are with you on telling your children you love them because they may not be here tomorrow. I've had lots of coworkers over the years that did not understand why I always told my kids that I love them before I said bye to them on the phone.

Nice pictures Custer!

Mike, thanks for the tour of the Custer Skywalk - great pics! We missed that one when we were out that way a few years ago so it was nice to see your slideshow.

Carol said...

yup, you must tell us how to do the slideshow---that was really neat. and what a view!!!

after hearing about your Furminator I thought of getting one too but then read what Debbie wrote. Our Gypsy is part border collie and when we use the shedding tool on her (which we COULD do every day!) we have a bucket FULL.

Mike, is the beard growing back or will it take awhile???

Hugs to both of ya! :)+
