La Vie en Rose

Laurelhurst Park on a sunny Sunday.

I saw this lovely rose and had to point it out to mama. She's awfully darned good to me, we are an amazing team, and I really love her. So mama, this rose is for you!

Time for some exploring. Those pine cones aren't going to find their own way into my waiting mouth...

First locate the tasty crunchy morsel. Then open wide...

While I was busy collecting some fine pine cones, mama was taking pictures of a gigantic fly that landed on her leg. Yes it looks large in this photo, but it was HUGE! I noticed her studying it and did the only thing I could think of in that situation - I ATE IT. Mmm... protein.

But the pine cones are my main concern. After running after them, choosing and refusing them, a boy gets tired.

Time to sit and ponder the complexities of life.

Mostly things like how much I love park walkies and the many myriad forms of pine cones. You know, IMPORTANT STUFF.

Love,

Bogart

What a lovely rose you found for your Mummy.

Was the fly filling or would it have been more satisfying with a portion of fries! :-)

Good heavens, Bogie...have ya fried out there yet?? The PNW is havin' a smokin' hot summer...we're not...we're havin' ur usual summer...cool and RAINY...actually, I think Lacie's rusted...

Those pine cones look the best though I'd probably see em again if I ate em....

Bogart you are truly a work of art! How pretty you looked showing that rose to your mommy!
Oh my, good thing you swooped in and ate that fly, it may have bitten your mommy and that wouldn't have been good, not good at all.
Pine cones, we have some of those in our yard, but they are just out of reach from my invisible fence, maybe I'll ask the mommy to bring me one so I can see how they taste.
Hugs and kisses to ya Bogart,
Chloe

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Your photos could be on a calendar. No kidding. Better than many we've seen and of course no guydale comes close to your handsomeness!
Glad you got your protein from that fly...he did look big. Hootie is the insect eater here. He eats wasps even. ugh. Mommy says he will get bit one of these days, but so far he is always the victor!
Smooches,
BRD & Hootie
