Monday's View from the Moo: Rewind

Ha-woo dear furiends!
Its me, Miss Moo, with another edition of the View from the Moo!

Seems to me that a month ago mom promised more pictures from when her pup-kids visited.... and she never delivered! so we'll take things in our own paws & post a few:

This looked pretty interesting, its from their  visit to the Whaling Museum in New Bedford MA:


Look out below!  
These full skeletons of whales hang over the lobby!
The furthest one back is from a pregnant female with her unborn calf - sadly, she was hit by a cruise ship & died a few hours later.   See her baby?  It still has vestigal hind legs!

Going up the stairs gives woo a close-up & personal view!

Second floor: artwork depicting different whaling ships & aspects of whaling....lots of ship models on this floor, but the pics were too blurry to post-

Did woo ever wonder if woo could fit inside a whale's jaw?
Have a seat....

A half-size whaling ship!
 Getting the tour....fascinating information from a gentleman who knew a great deal about whaling & whale boats!  ( He went to the same high school as mom's mama did!)
 Manning the pump handle to turn the winch to raise the anchor
 This was quite an improvement over trying to haul the anchor up manually!

Going back down to the lobby..... watch out for that whale, kid!
Relaxing beneath a large male humpback skeleton

And can woo believe, we didn't get as much as one bone to nibble on?    Harumph!    No fun!

Well, mom says we would probably not like being on a whaling ship;  the food was bad, there was no clean drinking water, it was dark, damp, & foul in the crews quarters,  it was stinky and smokey and slippery on deck most of the time... .... and woo could be stuck on that ship for 2 or more years on a single whaling expedition!   Doesn't really sound like our idea of "fun" after all.  Ha-roo roo roo!

So, to end with, here we are with bones that we were allowed to have: treat bones!   Woo-hoo!
and that's this week's View from the Moo!
Toodle-woo!

Wow! What a great view from the Moo! I'm not sure we could "relax" under that humpback though! All those bones sure are a pup's dream!

It looks like a really interesting museum! I'm glad that woo enjoyed a bone treat afterward!

PeeEssWoo -- it is starting to snow in Chicago so I am wishing woo just enough to look beautiful and have fun in, but not to make the streets messy and slippery.

That museum looks pretty great. I might go crazy in there thinking I should chew on all those bones!
