Walk Like an Airedale-ian

Potential for sunny spring-like Saturday = full rucksack with food and water for another extended Airedale tour of Portland!

For some, life is about stopping and smelling the roses. I concur, but would add that stopping to chomp the cones is MUCH more appropriate.

Let me demonstrate:

Take a moment to consider things behind you, and catch them in your mighty jaws...

Always be ready for things coming right at you, and catch them in your mighty jaws...

Before some things may pass you by, open your mighty jaws...

Think positively, aim high, and catch them with your mighty jaws...

Improve your focus, and catch them in your mighty jaws...

Stand up tall and proud... and catch them in your mighty jaws...

Don't forget to do your little dance everyday... and catch them in your mighty jaws...

And when you're just about to miss it, make a goofy face that says "I meant to do that", and run after it, pounce on it, and capture it in your mighty jaws.

Another lovely day to run in Laurelhurst Park. Luckily mama brought a big bag of food and treats and a large bottle of water today! We weren't expecting it to be so warm, and we both needed a bunch of pit stops in between stick collection and walking.

Portland is lovely and green right now, with flowers blooming all over the place. Yes mama, I'll pose with the flowers...

While it's a really long walk for us, we both really like coming to Laurelhurst Park. It's just so pretty (even the still-green algae pond).

Geese means goose-poop! Woo hoo! Gotta find a nice big pile of that to roll in... none over here...

None over here either.

Found it! Luckily mama was blinded by the sun and couldn't see me rolling in it. I'm sure she'll discover it later once we're home...

Love,

Bogart

Hey Bogart,
Way to go with the goose poop guy; it's so aromatic. We have lots of geese on our lake (Lake Anna) but dad keeps a pretty tight rein on us all. Is that the Willamette River that the bridge goes over? The Columbia must be way to big to hike over on a bridge.

Way to go with the pinecones Bogie. You do have mighty jaws fer sure! Not so sure about that goose poop though. I prefer turkey pooh for rolling in. Our folks aren't too keen on it though.

Portland is booootiful Bogie!! I was there last Sept, but never went to all the bootiful places you have been to...

Have you ever tried to pull pine cones straight off trees?? I used to do that when I was younger and I LOVED doing that. Nowadays if I see them hanging off low branches, I would still try to jump, but mum won't let me anymore.....
