Oh Car!

Oh Car!
You take us to the most fantastic places!
(And sometimes the not-so-good ones, like Vet.)

But mostly good places
And so we hop in whenever your back opens for us
Because we love going to good places!

You are full of things we need
Like towels
And beds
And our special doggy water bottle.

When you drive I snuggle down and I fall asleep.
But not Ojo.
Ojo sits and watches out the windows
For birds and squirrels and Dogs and people.

Oh Car!
Where are you taking us today?

Me and my person

As much as I love Ojo (and yes, I am a big enough Dog to admit that I love her, at least most of the time), there are times when I miss how it used to be. Just me and my person, exploring the world together, side-by-side always.

Sometimes, when Ojo is off bouncing after bunnies, I sit beside my person on top of a high mountain. The world goes by below us, wide and vast. I sniff the many smells in the air, and my person watches birds flying and looks out to the ocean far below.

At these times I am content. I could be beside my person always and forever.

The Lake is Happy! (by Ojo)

The Lake is happy to see me today, and I am happy to see the Lake! I love the Lake!

(So cool, and refreshing, and full of sticks, and for swimming and wading... Did I mention I love the Lake?)

I know I make grumpy, grumbly noises about Ojo sometimes. Or often times. She is young, and she is pushy, and she runs too fast. All the time.

But she is my pack mate. My company. My friend. And don't ever tell her this, but sometimes (just sometimes) I think she is magnificent. Look at her leap from the water to catch the flying stick!

Shhh, don't tell her... But I do love her.

My tail

Oh tail!

I love you so!
You help me balance! You help me run!
You are curly and beautiful and perfect!
I love you, tail!

What is THAT?

What is that? Can you see it? No? It's pretty camouflaged. Well then, can you smell it? I can smell it!!

What is it? That thing? That creature in our Yard??

There it goes!!

Oh! It is Marvin the (girl) Hedgehog!

Hello Marvin! What are you doing outside? Are you enjoying this sunny, late summer day?

Biggest Beach Ever! (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here again!

On our way home from being Away we stopped at the Biggest Beach Ever!

There was so much sand it seemed to go on forever, and the big puddles of salty water were warm on my paws!

Our people threw these crazy things for me to chase. These things are called "sand dollars", and they're dead. There were alive ones too, but the people didn't throw those. Only the dead ones.


We ran and we splashed and we bounced! (And this was the day after the Very Long Five Hour Walk, so we were doing very well if I may say so myself!)

It was amazing! I hope we can go to this Biggest Beach Ever again sometime!

Alpine! (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here! We were Away! We went to our cabin-in-the-snow, but there was no snow! How weird is that?

Instead there were bushes and berries and flowers! The people called this "alpine". We had to wear these loud things our collars called Bear Bells. This is so the bears would know where to find us if they wanted lunch! Or so the people said. And then they laughed. Why did they laugh?

It is very pretty there, don't you think?

Oooh, and did I mention the berries?? These are salal berries which were down lower, and then up high were wild blueberries and black currents! They were amazing! I ate the right off the bushes!!

We went on some Walks. One day our Walk was very, very long. Don't tell the people, but I think we were Lost! 

And it was Hot! Very, very Hot!

We were on our Walk for FIVE HOURS! Can you believe it? Five hours! Near the end we had to take many breaks because Cobi was very done. And very grouchy. 

But we found some amazing spots on our Very Long Walk! We found a creek with water! I went all the way in. So did the people. Cobi did not. (This must be why she was so hot and grouchy.) 

And we found this amazing pond!! It was so refreshing! (Cobi still did not go in. Which is why she was hot. But less grouchy.) 

At the end of our Very Long Five Hour Walk I still had enough energy to go swimming for sticks. Aren't I amazing?!?

And then we were done...

Marvin at the Park

Friends - the people took Marvin the (girl) Hedgehog to the Park without us!! Can you believe it???

(Okay, yes, it was VERY hot. And we had already had a Walk. And a play with Hose. And it was Very Hot, did I mention that? But still - how could they leave us behind when they went to the Park???)
