Potential for sunny spring-like Saturday = full rucksack with food and water for another extended Airedale tour of Portland!

walkie1

For some, life is about stopping and smelling the roses.  I concur, but would add that stopping to chomp the cones is MUCH more appropriate.

walkie2

Let me demonstrate:

walkie3

Take a moment to consider things behind you, and catch them in your mighty jaws…

walkie4

Always be ready for things coming right at you, and catch them in your mighty jaws…

walkie5

Before some things may pass you by, open your mighty jaws…

walkie6

Think positively, aim high, and catch them with your mighty jaws…

walkie7

Improve your focus, and catch them in your mighty jaws…

walkie8

Stand up tall and proud… and catch them in your mighty jaws…

walkie9

Don’t forget to do your little dance everyday… and catch them in your mighty jaws…

walkie10

And when you’re just about to miss it, make a goofy face that says “I meant to do that”, and run after it, pounce on it, and capture it in your mighty jaws.

walkie11

Another lovely day to run in Laurelhurst Park.  Luckily mama brought a big bag of food and treats and a large bottle of water today!  We weren’t expecting it to be so warm, and we both needed a bunch of pit stops in between stick collection and walking.

walkie13

Portland is lovely and green right now, with flowers blooming all over the place.  Yes mama, I’ll pose with the flowers…

walkie14

While it’s a really long walk for us, we both really like coming to Laurelhurst Park.  It’s just so pretty (even the still-green algae pond).

walkie15

Geese means goose-poop!  Woo hoo!  Gotta find a nice big pile of that to roll in… none over here…

walkie16

None over here either.

walkie17

Found it!  Luckily mama was blinded by the sun and couldn’t see me rolling in it.  I’m sure she’ll discover it later once we’re home…

walkie18

Love,

Bogart

  1. Ahahaha, Bogie! Those geese finally cooperated, hehe :mrgreen: Poor mama, she probably doen’t share your enthusiasm for goose poop. Just think about all the goodness (gooseness?? 😆 ) she misses!!!!

    Me likeyd your picturrre with white rhododendron. My ma says Awwww. Me misself says Let Me Pee On It!!!!!!!!

    And in conclusion, may I add to your excellent essay on pine cones and excercising mighty jaws, to always enjoy wild wind blowing right into your mighty jaws and surrounding ‘stache’n’beard! Cheers!!

    Luv,
    Bel (who usually excercises his mighty jaws at dinner time …)

  2. Bogie, we think your essay on pine cones is an excellent statement of your philosophy of life. Thank you for sharing it with us.

    As for goose poop, I bet it is wonderful. My best so far is duck poop, but mostly I settle for pigeon poop, as it is more plentiful around here.

  3. Dude, while I’m more of a stop-and-sniff-the-peemail kind of guy, I am completely with you on the “mighty jaws” concept. Use ’em or lose ’em I always say!!
