I am not a Poodle

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!

Bogart you can fly! I am in awe. I don't think Welshies can fly. I think it must be a something that only big black/tans can do.

It looks very bright and sunny where you are and there is nothing better than a good game of pine cone on a day like that.

The green pond looks like a green lawn. We would have never known there was water underneath if you didn't tell us!
We're glad you found some pine cones, Bogie!

Love ya lots

Portland does have some beautiful places to go walking. And some really dog savvy humans that leave water for the 4-legged's. What a great place to walk! Have a great day!

It's nice you are having some great walks and nice weather - and getting your workout in.

The pond doesn't look too inviting....

But the ducks might have been a good chase....

I just love going on walks with you Bogart!

Thanks for another lovely walk about in Portland! Mommy doesn't walk us much here in farrr N.Idaho. Today Hootie took her for a run: he ran off toward the neighbors with her flailing behind him trying to get him to stop. hehe. She really does need to loose that poundage!

PS-If you pass through our area on the trip east, give us a holler. You can stay with us, or just visit!
