Under the Starry Texas Skies

Three legged rescue pup Wyatt visits Ozona, Luckenbach and San Antonio in the great state of Texas.

Yeeee haw! Yipee kai yay!

Mom’s trying to teach me how to say that instead of “WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! WOOF!” now that we’re in Texas. We’ve been moving across this big place seeing so many cool things, and even almost getting caught in a flash flood a couple of weeks ago (Dad can tell you about that).

Texas is a neat place, and dogs can pretty much go anywhere, people are pretty laid back. I think I’ve seen more big dogs than little purse dogs.

Here’s what I’ve seen so far: Ozona Texas, a place named after this dead guy named Davy Crockett. The big park there was a good place to potty.

Just before we almost drowned in the river, we went to see these big rocks in the ground. Something about “Stonehenge” made Mom and Dad go “ooooh” and “aaaaah.”

Me, I just wanted to get out of the pouring rain, but for some reason they though it was important that they get a photo of me sitting on the wet rocks. Do I look hoppy here? I think not!

I also went to a place called Luckenbach, where Mom and Dad went way back with Spirit Jerry. I got to sit on the same porch where Jerry sat, and even said hello to some roosters without eating them for dinner. 

There was loud music all day and even other dogs. I got a LOT of treats that day, as you can see by the kibble hangin out of my mouth.

Sometimes all that craziness got to be too much and I let out some loud warnings to approaching enemies, but overall I’d have to say that dang, I was pretty good there!

After that, I went to the Alamo. Not only did I go to the Alamo, I went INSIDE of the Alamo!

Yes, I did, and I didn’t do anything horrible or bark or anything. I was on my best behavior because before we went inside, Mom told the Texas Ranger guy that I was a good boy and would mind my manners.

My Ruff Wear Harness gives me this illusion of authority I guess, and the Ranger guy seemed to think I was important. So he let us go in, and since I didn’t want Mom to end up in the pokey, I didn’t make a sound when were in this important place.  They don’t let you take pictures in there, which is why you don’t see any of me inside, so you’ll just have to take my word that I was there.

I think we’re leaving this big state called Texas next week. I’ve had a lot of fun here and as far as dog-friendly places go, Texas gets my vote!

The coyotes wail, along the trail,
deep in the heart of Texas,

The rabbits rush, around the brush,
deep in the heart of Texas

The cowboys cry, “Ki-yip-pee-yi,”
deep in the heart of Texas.

The doggies bawl, and bawl and bawl,
deep in the heart of Texas.

Deep In The Heart Of Texas, lyrics by June Hershey

  1. Howdy Wyatt Ray!

    I’m gonna try it, too – here goes:
    “Woooooooooof, Wooof, Woof – Yeeee haw! Yipee kai yay – Woof!” – I did it!
    It takes a bit and you have to have your tongue just right but I got it!
    Inside the Alamo! WOW! You do have that kinda Texas Ranger Dog look about you!
    Did you get to 2, I mean – 3 Step?
    I hope you get to see some Texas Longhorns (not the football kind – they are the scary ones!)

    Glad your having a great trip!

  2. Rain must have been EVERYWHERE this week. And no, you don’t look hoppy at all; understandably so. Next time insist your pawrents at least give you an umbrella for crying out loud.

    Davy Crockett and the Alamo and Stonehenge and Texas rangers. You are having quite the adventure.

  3. Wow, Wyatt!

    Howdy thar pardner! Did ya see any liddle fillies, now didya? Ouch. It hurts to talk like that when you are not used to it. Some of my friends live in Junction Texas. Were you any where near there? They live on the Y-O Ranch. That’s’ Yo to me and you, but apparently not to them…tee hee. I love teasin’ Texans.

    Keep up the adventure Wyatt. Start workin’ on your pawrents to head up North to Alaska, Go North the rush is on! Big Sam left Seattle in the year of 92, with Sam Pratt ‘er Wyatt his partner and brother Billy, too…I’ll stop now, you will just have to take my word for it that I know the whole thing…. Opie’s mom

    PS. Don’t even get me started on Robert Service…The Creamation of Sam McGee is my favorite.

  4. Be sure to make your way through Chelan on your way to Alaska!!

    Maybe the rain will have stopped by then.

  5. You did look pretty darn important in your ruffwear harness! The poor guy probably thought you might eat him if he didn’t let you in 🙂 !

    Sounds like Texas was a lot of fun! As far as the rock picture you look really cool sitting there, but why do our pawrents think we like to pose for those types of pictures?

    Dillon and Rhys

  6. wow, i was born in texas you know, before that long trip to tennessee. you can take the pup out of texas, but i don’t think you can take texas all the way out of the pup….where did i place my lone star flag…. wow, opie’s mom…my charon’s been to the y-o ranch many years ago…what a crazy world..

    so wyatt, when are you guys coming east?? smoky mountain national park is only about 45 minutes from my house…

  7. What an awesome trip you had there, Wyatt! Can’t your pawrents tell that you used a Texas accent when you woofed? 🙂 I always think you look awesome in your ruffwear harness!

  8. Spirit Opie, that is too weird. We went through Junction today and mom and dad had pie at the Isaaks Restaurant. I didn’t get anything, so I ate their pillow.

    You guys, we are just going to have to travel all around the country so we can see everypawdy! That’s all there is to it.
