That large yellow ball in the sky is visible today – I’ve almost forgotten what it looks like – and we are all out and ready to explore!

This is the first day of 80 degrees since last September here in Portland.  So we’re all a little summer-crazy.

Along the Eastside Esplanade, I spotted the stick of my dreams.  Yes it was floating in the stinky Willamette River.  Yes it would be rather impractical to carry home.  BUT I WANT IT – a boy can dream.

Everything is so very green from all of the monsoon rains we’ve had lately – and today I get to enjoy it.

Just a handsome boy in the city…

Every time we come here I try to find different places to walk and new things to see.  I am a very visual canine.

This little boy found a snake, and I was intrigued.

sun7

Just a garter snake, but it was pretty cool to look at.  I’m sure I wouldn’t be happy if it was in my house, but in the great outdoors, and with someone else holding it, it was neato.

My normal paw soaking area was literally under water!  With all of the rains we’ve had, the water levels have risen.  No worries, I can still soak my hot paws.

And of course, stop to pose majestically.

The water is grungy, but it’s cool and feels good.  And there are so very many sticks here!

No I don’t want to go yet!  And I’m going to let everyone on the east side of the river know!

sun13

Hehehe

sun14

Notice the guy in the blue shirt in the background – he was stunned by my dulcet tones and my perfect pitch.  Not to mention the amplification of my big boy bark at top volume!

The result of 15 minutes in the Willamette:

And the piece de resistance…

  1. Bogie…we are putting an X on our map, so that if we ever get to Portland again, we can find that bridge and try singing under it!

    pee ess…we have found that (scavenged) packing boxes can have most interesting scents. If we spend TOO long sniffing a specific box, muzzer puts it in the recycle pile. She is getting rid of all the good boxes!
