It has been HOT here in Portland.  Yes I know that it is summer.  And yes I remember my early years in Los Angeles.  But with all of the lovely seasons here in the Pacific NW, I seem to have forgotten what summer FEELS like.


Today… I remembered.


An afternoon spent in the forest is ALWAYS a good thing, but especially when it’s hot.  There is always some cozy shade to be found.  And some fantastic sticks don’t hurt either.



We had a nice little picnic on the side of the volcano.  Mama was enjoying sitting and relaxing.  I, on the other hand, had other ideas.  Sometimes I have to be more persuasive than others…


We have a special understanding.  I can bite her head and she still loves me.  I can bark at full strength right into her ear and I still get a big kiss.


I’ve got her wrapped around my fuzzy finger.


Even with a mouthful of forest – thanks to some extended pine cone action – she still loves me.  I assume I will have to dodge a bath this evening, however.


Wish me luck!
