Xmas in the City

Thanks so much to everyone who has stopped by our blog, left comments and emails wishing us a Merry Christmas. I really think that one of my new years' resolutions will have to be to learn how to type - so that when mama is tired or sad I can still update my blog.

Last year we were completely snowed in, but this year...

It was warm and sunny and I insisted on a dip in the Willamette.

Not so strange really, there are always GOOD sticks here. Bogart-sized sticks.

It wasn't exactly hot outside, and the water was indeed chilly. But I was having such a good time...

Sticks EVERYWHERE, some on the shore and some in the water. Not to mention how much fun it was to drag mama back and forth...

And of course a good shake in lieu of a proper "aire dry"...

Mama was fascinated with my wet beard. It hasn't been this long or wet in some time.

"Fuzzy Man in the City"

Ok mama, ENOUGH with the photos already...

Yes, I know I'm handsome, LETS WALK!!!

Oh wait, we can stay here for awhile?

That sounds good too. Just as long as we can walk for awhile again.

Maybe we'll cross the Hawthorne Bridge here and head into SW Portland a little... you know, after I'm done running in the river...

HAPPY HOLIDAYS everyone...

Bogart your adventure was great looking. We didn't have snow on Christmas day, but got some yesterday. Glad you had a nice holiday

Momma says that here in Master Chew Sits they used to use Airedales to hunt for water rats in the canals up by the old mill buildings so I am not surprised to see you dipping your toes in that cold water to hunt for sticks.

Wishing you a good new year.

I am so completely jealous of your beard! The groomer chopped mine off the last time and I have working very hard to grow it back out! Your city is just beautiful!! Tell your mama that it's ok to be sad! We love you both!!
