M.O.M. and M.O.D. were talking today about all the beautiful wildlife that is here in Montana. We are sure that some of these will not be seen when we move to the ocean.

We have seen....
Beautiful Mule Deer and White Tail Deer...many just outside our windows in our yard....
Many varieties of Mysterious Hawks...many with wing spans up to 2 and 1/2 feet.....
The glorious Golden Eagle with it's unbelievable 7 foot wing span....
The frightening Grey Wolf that has taken many family dogs and numerous new born animals from near by ranches...
The quiet and passive Big Horn Sheep that loves the steep cliffs by the road sides....
And one of my favorites..the Majestic American Bald Eagle. He always brings a feel of excitement and wonder when spotted in the trees along the river as he awaits an unsuspecting fish to swim by for lunch...
And My beloved Moose. My close encounter with this gentle Moose on one of our hikes in the woods was one of my most memorable moments of living in Montana. He meant us no harm just as he seemed to sense that we also meant him no harm. We shared a trail with a peaceful giant that day and I shall never forget how fortunate I felt that day on his trail.
To witness the beauty and grace as 3 amazing Osprey stretched their 5 1/2 foot wing span and glided for a long thrilling moment above me in my yard as they seemed to be dancing together on the breeze that day.
These are sights that will be difficult to find when M.O.D. and M.O.M. and I move from my homeland. But I have no doubt that it will not take the 3 of us very long to find beautiful wonders at our next destination. And of course I can't wait to see what surprises await me at the ocean beaches at our new home. A lot of wonderful adventures for this little pup to share with all of you in the new year!
A NOTE FROM MISTAYA'S M.O.M.....As this fun filled year comes to a close I want to take this time to say thank you to all of Mistaya's blogger friends and their people. It has been a honor to have you follow our adventures...and to read about all of your adventures too. You have all brought joy into my life not just by leaving comments, but by my reading your fun posts in your blogs as well. What a wonderful, fun community this is and Mistaya and I both look forward to sharing all of our mischievous adventures together in the coming year.
May all your days be filled with joy, puppy kisses, kitty purrs and lot's of tail wags...all our love to all of you....Mistaya and her M.O.M.


  1. Beautiful post Mistaya & M.O.M. You DO have amazing wildlife there. Even moose! I'll bet you're the only dog blogger who has run into a moose while out walking. What a special place you live in. Now tell me, why are you moving to the beach?? That will be beautiful too, but in a very different way. Good luck with your move and happy new year to all of you!

  2. Hi Tank, We are moving because the land our home sits on is being sold and M.O.M. said if she has to move again it will be to the ocean so I am going too!! We are all looking forward to the new adventure! Happy New Year to you too! Hugs and wags, Mistaya

  3. Wow, what beautiful pictures! You have had some amazing adventures and here's hoping for many many more to come on your new journey!

  4. I am amazed by all the wonderful animals you see in Montana, each is so wonderful. I really like the moose photo, I miss seeing them like I did in Alaska. Please be careful if you see one again Mistaya, they can be gentle one minute and charging at you the next. But they are incredible creatures.

    You are going to see many new and exciting creatures on the coast. My favorites are the pelicans, sea lions, and whales. It will be so exciting to explore.

    Mistaya, I hope you and your M.O.M and M.O.D have a wonderful New Year.

    Hugs & Purrs,
    Judy and Miss Cindi

  5. Hi JackDaddy, Yes, I have had so many wonderful adventures with M.O.M. and M.O.D. that I am very excited about living near the ocean! I did notice that there are many sea gulls hanging around over there. I bet I can....opps...M.O.M. is listening! See you in the new year. Hugs and wags, Mistaya

  6. Happy New Year Judy and Miss Cindi, see you in 2010 with all new adventures! Hugs and wags, Mistaya

  7. Amazing photos of the great Montana wildlife...that's why MT is one of our favorite destinations!
    Hugs and belly rubs to Mistaya,
