REILLY ACE OF DOGS

"IF"

If you can start the day without caffeine,

If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,

If you can overlook it when those you love take it out on you when, thru no fault of yours, something goes wrong,

If you can ignore a friend's limited education and never correct him,

If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend,

If you can face the world without lies and deceit,

If you can conquer tension without medical help,

If you can relax without booze,

If you can say honestly that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against creed, color, religion or politics . . . .

Then you are as good as your DOG

STEP INTO THE WOODS OF MINNESOTA
Listen to the leaves blowing above your head. Watch the eagle soaring back and forth over the river. Be careful now! Don't stumble on one of those huge granite boulders sticking out of the trail. It took 2 summers just to carve the 1/4 mile trail from the road to the river! Watch your step!! Listen...Is that a phoebe calling? Hear the crows teasing the eagle? Hear the Veery singing up in the treetop? When you 'bed down'in the little treehouse tonight, listen for the 'bull frog chorus', singing you to sleep. Well, you'd better start collecting that firewood for the bonfire in front of the tree house. Have a great stay and thanks for coming !! Be sure and sign our Guest Book below, OK ?

A BIT OF HISTORY
Filbert and Hazel Treesnakes ventured north from their home in Lake Wobegon, looking for a quiet get-away. They found 10 acres of wooded river front in 1989 and said, "Eureka!" They always intended to add the 5 acres adjoining on the south border and after 10 years, it finally became available. So now they own 15 acreas, all river front and undeveloped woodland. Six years ago, they had the notion of putting a tree house along the river's edge. Hazel found a book on
Tree houses and after 'scouting' trees up and down the river, they found a beautiful clump of No. Red Maples growing in the river bottom. This seemed a perfect place, with a 180 degree view of the river bed. With the need to accommodate two dogs, the 'bridge' from the top of the bank to the tree house solved this problem. The front of the tree house is anchored by that large No. Pin Oak out front and a small footing on the left edge. The next phase was to finish the observation deck that is out over the east canopy of Maples, behind the treehouse structure. This was finished this year. The road is now in as well.
