Still winter…no doubt. I managed to work off all those sweet calories from yesterday’s Porter Party. Yup, nothing like a half foot of new snow to redefine a tough workout. Unlike the local passenger train, which got stuck in the … Continue reading

So much fun with the sun, don’t you think? It’s always a bit difficult to focus the camera because of the bright background, but I do like the results. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m somewhat ear-challenged for a basset hound. … Continue reading

Rather a contemplative mood for this basset today. Is this too much vanity or a nice display of pride? Well, us bassets believe in equanimity almost as much as we believe in treats, so I’m NOT seeing myself as the … Continue reading

Cold morning, but the running was quite fine in the new snow…plenty of fresh tracks (coyote, rabbit, mouse, deer). You’d think that I would have been all tuckered out, but nope, I decided to take on some macho engineering today. … Continue reading
