But I DO love them...
Especially the girlie poodles. I am also not a doodle-anything or anything-doodle. Despite the fact that many humans have never seen anything as cute as me and most assume that I am a "something"-doodle.
With another day of sunshine promised by the weatherman, we thought we'd get in a full day of walking - so it's off to the eastside!
On the eastside walkie, one of my favorite places is this parking lot. It has a spectacular pine tree which always produces the most excellent cones in large numbers.
I can catch a few, and relax for a moment to contemplate the rest of my walkie.
And of course I can get in a little exercise - you know, circuit training...
A little back and forth, side to side action.
Some flexibility training...
And some cardio.
Then a few moments of relaxation.
Before we head out to Laurelhurst Park!
Come on mama, you're lagging behind!
Pond is still green, still full of ducks and geese.
And Airedales posing majestically.
We will definitely miss this park. While a little far away from where we live, it's always worth the walkie.
And of course the folks who put out the free bucket of doggie water.
Thank you Portland for a great summer day!
