Ruh-roh. What is that?

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? NO! Look out, it's a giant crawfish! AND IT'S GIVING US THE FINGER (ok, the claw, but I bet it's the same in the crawfish world)!!!

That was a little disquieting. Giant crustaceans aren't on my usual walkie. I usually see things involving dirt and greenery...

I've gotta get that giant crawfish out of my head. And today is a fantastically spring-like day. I'm thinking a quick trip over the Hawthorne Bridge...

And a dip in the Willamette! Come on mama, the water is n-i-c-e...

Ok, the water is filthy but it's cool and incredibly fun to run in. Lots of boats out today making little waves that come crashing onto shore and excite me to no end.

I run back and forth multiple times, each time getting more and more excited.

Occasionally I will stop and pose majestically for mama. You know, she's a sucker for a cool photo.

Need another angle mama?

Oh yeah, I'm nice and wet and muddy now. What's missing from this picture?

That's right, A NICE JUICY STICK.

Don't even think about saying no mama. I know it's about 6 foot long. WE ARE TAKING THIS STICK HOME.

OOooo we love that smile you have after romping in water and finding the perfect stick! That water spider looked very scary to us though. Did you bark at him?? For sure I,BRD, would have!

Bogie, me lad, you are SO lucky!!! ......Lucky to have gotten away from that giant THING with the claw! I've never..... Well, lots of scary stuff in blog land today! You should visit Benny and Lilly, the Frenchies. They attended a whale festival parade of some sort and saw some pretty scary things. NOT me fur mom... I know she's as big as a whale, but we are working on it...

Anywoo, good to see that huge smile on your face. What terrier wouldn't smile to that HUGE stick!

Irish Love,

That is just a pawsome walkie! Did you manage to haul the 6 foot long stick back? I hope you did, coz it would be so disappointing if you didn;t!

The other thing missing in these photos is ... your leash. Are you off leash? Cool!

WOW, nice places to walk Bogart! I helped my daddy prune fruit trees this weekend. There were more sticks could shake a stick at. I should have saved you one. Or two.
