Summer in the City


It's been a little grey here lately, but now the sun is shining and summer has arrived...

Time to go for my first official walk of the summer here in Portland! Going to hit my regular local hood spot, Powell Butte.

We take different trails all the time, and some of them have great little streams for me drink from. Cool and refreshing...

It's so great to look around and everything I see is GREEN - back in Los Angeles I understand that it's been dry and over 100 degrees for the last few weeks. That always made me tired (and mom cranky) and my skin all flaky. No such problems so far here in Portland...

It's easy to forget, walking through the forest, that there is actually wildlife here - the only thing wild that I've seen so far has been bunnies (which I'd like to get closer to if dad could let up a little on the flexi-leash) but I hear there are deer and other critters too.

Ah, at the top. It's clear and beautiful today, lots of good smells, and a great view of Mt. Hood.

Summer in the city... and what a great city it is!!!

It sounds like you are really enjoying Portland! I'm glad you are able to go out in cooler weather. I would die if I went on a walk right now...

My human is contemplating some footies for me, 'cause the heat is hurting my feet!

I hope one day you are able to capture one of those wildlife things!

We think your move to Portland was a good thing, Bogie! The temps sound much cooler so you'll all be more relaxed and happier!

Love ya lots,

Portland does indeed look lovely and green, and it looks like you've found some excellent walkie spots already!

Bogart -

We agree with Maggie & Mitch - Portland was a wonderful move ....very green and pretty - how hot does it get there ?

You and your Dad need to start making movies about your wildlife walks and adventures so all the pups will know what to do if the visit guys could be PORTLAND GUIDES...

Have a nice lazy Sunday....

I LOVE that you love your new city! It sure looks like it loves you too, man!

Enjoy the hiking and all the green things (and the non-flaky skin is just icing on the cake... mmm ... cake...)!

Goober love,
