We did stop for a short walk along the George G Newton Nature Reserve trail on Kitchigami road. Due to recent rains, the path was very muddy and slippery and I didn't want to risk a painful tumble with this bothersome hip of mine. Not having anything to worry about of course, Pheebs was all over the place happily running around tracking down one delightful smell after another.

I can stop whenever I want.
What do you call a dog that does magic tricks?
I saw a guy spill all his Scrabble letters on the road. I asked him, “What’s the word on the street?”
How do you get two whales in a car?
