Gilligan and Hazel are happy that Melissa is visiting.
Weather in the upper 60’s plus the backyard fence being just posts while it’s being repaired equals a walk with Gilligan to Starbucks and Suzi’s work to deliver a special treat.
Five miles later, we have a tired doggie. Success!

Elevate your mindset.
the human says. there are two options.. inside or outside. but if they would. elevate their mindset. they would uncover. a third option: stand. in the doorway. and sniff the air

After a morning of “opening” stockings and relaxing, we took Gilly and Ollie to Liberty Park for a walk in the snow.
Merry Christmas to you and yours!
Because we can’t have too many cute doggie pics on the internet, here’s another one.
I think she misses me. She looks like she misses me. Maybe it’s just me missing her. Love you, Gilly! ;-)
Thanks Missy for sending me the picture to brighten my day. I U!
Update. Ashley sees my post and sends me another picture of Gilly on the same couch.1 I think she’s looking to see if I’m coming in the door. I’m sorry to disappoint her… ;-)
Thanks, Ashley. I U 2!2
We stopped at a rest stop for a quick break. Gilly took full advantage of the opportunity!

This past weekend, for the third summer in the row, we all1 visited East Lake. Thanks to Kristi and Troy, we had an abundance of kayaks, a canoe, and a “relaxation station” to play with. Matt and Erica brought another canoe and a stand-up paddleboard. We all brought our swimsuits and sunscreen, though many didn’t use the latter enough.
Miska, Gilly, and Mousse enjoyed playing fetch and swimming in the water. Unfortunately, the beach was tough on their paws. We’re going to need to find a solution for that next time. Does anyone have positive experience using dog booties?2
Some went to the obsidian flow nearby and everyone went to Paulina Falls. Every evening, we went to the beach to watch the sun set. The Whitewater Fire near Jefferson made a smokey sunset our first night, but slight winds from the east cleared up the rest of the weekend. The final night, the sunset was so intense that none of you will believe I didn’t edit the photo.
Of course, it was a great opportunity for a jump shot. The photo was a happy accident created by my holding down the shutter on my smartphone while others snapped away with their DSLs. One of my shots coincided with someone else’s flash and everyone in the air. Of course, that called for an animated gif. Heather and Gilly posing mandated another. ;-)
Lots of family, a few dogs, and hot weather made for a fun time. I wonder — will next year make four?
What is this word “come” you keep repeating?
