Rock Hunting Mission for Pedro!

Today, I want to tell you about a project that we are way behind on posting. My friend, Pedro the Chihuahua, and his mom collect sea glass and shells for this table they have at their house. Pedro now wants to fill up the other sections with samples of rocks, or shells/sea glass from their friends from all over the world. (Read here for more info on this project!)

Since I, JB, do not go outside, I sent brother Bear out on this important mission, to see what he could find.
I give you, brother Bear!

Hi, it's me Bear. I am going out on a walk to look for rocks for Pedro, but first things first, gotta do my business, and then we can get started!

Looking for rocks......don't see any in this open field. Rocks, rocks, where are you??

Bear: Look mom, here are some rocks!!
Mom: Bear, those rocks are much too big to send to Pedro. Please keep looking, ok?

This rock hunting is getting me really thirsty. Gotta stop at my local watering hole for some refreshment.

Bear: Hey mom! Come over here, quick! There are some rocks down here!

I think I see some smaller rocks down in this creek!!

Ok, I can't really get down into the creek for the smaller rocks, so I found a piece of this big rock broken off, that we can send to Pedro. I also found a couple other small rocks too. I feel very proud of my rock hunting skills!

I did also find this old horseshoe in a field along the way. Do you think this counts as a rock? I will have JB ask Pedro.

Mom used some shellac to make the rocks look prettier, and we had to let them dry overnight.

Next the inspection team had to come over and snoopervise, to make sure quality was up to par.

The final Quality Assurance Manager was of course, me, JB. I guess Bear did ok with his rock hunting mission, but I am little confused about the horseshoe!

Pedro, we will send you the rocks this week! Thanks for such a fun project!

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK, and stop by my BIG WORLD too, thanks!

JB, Bear & Chester,

Good luck is on your way for finding that horse shoe! Mom says that when she was a child a nice woman told her to put horseshoes up on the wall with the opening at the top - that way the luck can't "fall out"! This is a great project!

Ludo van puppy said...

Well done Bear! Good finds!

Snowball said...

Bear must be really proud to be able to take on that mission. He even went the extra miles and found that horse shoe. Horse shoe bring good luck, right? I think he wanted to bring home more good luck.

The Creek Cats said...

What a fun project! Bear you're a great rock hunter!

Aren't horsehoes good luck? You're supposed to hang them upside down in the door way or something?

Lorianna said...

Good Job Bear! And it looks like you had lots of fun too. Your weather must be warming up.
JB and Chester, you are both good snoopervisers too. Putting shellac on them was a good idea Mommy Deb. They look really pretty!
I hope you all have a wonderful week.

Tom and Tama-Chan said...

Bear, you are a star! Those rocks look great, and we are going to go to Pedro's site to investigate further!

Your Pals,
Tom and Tama-Chan

JB, we think Bear did an outstanding job! And the idea your Mom had to shellac the rocks was really wonderful! We think the horseshoe should give Pedro something to think about ... hee hee!

Angel said...

We have a special round rock to send to Pedro! Do we need to shellac it? It is not a shinny rock!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Oh what beautiful rocks you found. Mom still hasn't found any really neat ones at the lake. We hope she keeps looking so we can go back to the lake...

happy said...

Great job, Bear! Nice collection of rocks. You've even found a lucky horse shoe! Gee, I've not even started looking for the rocks yet.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

If you find the owner of the horseshoe, do you suppose you can kiss the horse and it will turn into a canine princess for you, Bear?

Good job, rock hunting, Bear. And snoopervising, JB.

Anita said...

Good work!!

To have dominated employed are a good idea! Muahahahaha!!!

Hana said...

Wow, was Bear in a sit/stay in the middle of that road all by himself?? Those are some interesting looking rocks. We'll have to read up on the sea shell/rock project.

The Furry Kids said...

Bear did a good job! Pedro's project is very cool. We gotta tell you that when Mama was scrolling up the first picture she saw was the last one and she wasn't sure those were rocks at first. Because she has found other things on our carpet that look like brown blobs. hee hee
