Feeling HOT HOT HOT

Guess who got a hairecut today? Spring is springing all over here in Portland (at least for a few days), and that means it must be time for me to lose some fuzz. So mama dug through a bunch of boxes and found the rakes. Usually this was dad's job - to de-fuzz me - but mama does a really good job. She rubs my butt a lot during the process so I almost fall asleep as the fuzz magically separates from my skin.

Today's deforestation produced this:

Almost bigger than my head, but now I've lost a lot of my scruffy "ruff" and you can actually see my eyes now.

Today was going to be supermarket-shopping-excursion day, so we drove over to the east side. But it got hot fast, and mama didn't want to have to leave me in the car while she shopped. So the day wouldn't be wasted, I suggested another romp in Laurelhurst Park.

And no time in the park would be complete without some pine cone action. On the search, sometimes you find pine cones..

And sometimes you find stinky tennis balls...

But when the cones are good, they are very, very good.

Marauding dogs and humans had better keep their distance as I will fiercely guard my stash.

I'm sure you understand.

I can be fast and furious if another doggie tries to muscle in...

To the victor goes the spoils!

Dirty foamy tongue = HAPPY AIREDALE TERRIER

Wanna kiss mama?

Love,

Bogart

Bogart, we are soooo loving your new Spring makeover. You look cool - hopefully you will be feeling cool too!
We keep walking past pine cones when we are out in the woods and our mum keeps telling us that Bogart would love those!
Let us know if you ever run short and we'll post them.
love and kisses

Bogart!

My girl said SHE'd take a kiss if it also involved your juicy schnoz being pressed against her cheek. That some FABulous juiciness you've got going there, man. Obviously, pine cones do it for ya. Glad you got the walk in and some defuzzing too. I just got skinned and look ridiculous.

Goober love,
Stanley
