The last day of my daily walkie on Powell Butte.  One of dad’s favorite places in Portland, and where he and I walked every single day since we moved here.  So sort of a Klaus Memorial Walkie as mama and I talked a lot about dad and how much we missed him.

I left a little message for ya there dad…

And I collected some pine cones to take with us…

And a nice juicy stick…

Because today was moving day.  At exactly 9:00 in the morning (after said walkie), a big yellow truck pulled up in front of our house.  Movers – on time?  Amazing.  And they were completely awesome – they helped mama, shrink-wrapped lots of our furniture, and even managed to keep me from wandering too far into the neighborhood to get in some final pee-mail.  The company is called Thunder Movers, and mama was really, really happy with them.

Neither of the guys blinked an eye when they saw all of this:

I, however, had other fish to fry.  I needed to make sure that in all of the fuss we did not forget to take some very important things with us…

Like this soccer ball.  I found this back in Los Angeles in Griffith Park, and have enjoyed many fine kicking days in my back yard with dad.  Even though I understand that the new place doesn’t have a back yard, well that’s no reason not to keep the soccer ball, is it?


As much as I enjoy being in charge and supervising, I did want to help.  I offered to help mama take down the box filled with food and dog treats.

Only fair I thought, as the moving guys were dealing with this:

In the end, you’ll be happy to know that our move went smoothly and we are now in our new place.  And most importantly, the soccer ball made the cut.

  6. We are sooooo happy that the move is behind you! And we’re really glad you got to take the soccer ball with you! Our pawrents moved 14 times in 15 years, so they know how hard it is. They also know that you still have a lot of work ahead of you to unpack everything. We’ll keep our paws crossed that the unpacking goes as smoothly as the move! Bogart, you need to take very good care of your mama!
