Bark about a cooker today, 100 degrees and at the end of August of all things. Dad took me for a swim in the Fall River. That helped, but I won’t deny that I stayed indoors most of the day. … Continue reading

Nice blue sky this morning, so I took out both of the Sony cameras. Not much in the way of composition, but the subject matter, me, can’t be beat. Like that blue sky, too. Ron left today. Geez, I sure … Continue reading

Six years ago George watched the setting sun… and commented, “Bet you didn’t know dad that you can taste gentle rays of sun.” Dad didn’t, but he knows it now. Dog gone it! Dad dropped me off at the newspaper … Continue reading

After our jog I stopped on Ears to the Wind Ridge and thought about the coming day, um, in a looking-forward-to-food sorta way. I knew that the Little Britches Rodeo would bring action (the bulls won again). It also meant … Continue reading

Better morning than yesterday day morning. I could get out and enjoy the wildflowers without getting wet. And I got some great sunbathing in at Cheyenne Valley View. Dad’s buddy from Holland, Ron, came today. I won’t deny that I … Continue reading

Very depressing day. We just can’t get any clear, sunny days around here. It rained on us when we jogged. Naturally it wasn’t enough rain to green up the land, but enough to get me wet. Blah! Dad told me … Continue reading

George will tell you that on a cloudy early morning there’s nothing like getting out the flashpacks to liven things up. Of course, a basset has to keep a wary eye on the sky in case the rain threatens to … Continue reading

Bark about depressing. Every morning there’s fog or low clouds, and every evening I shiver as the thunderstorms blast through. I’m doggone sick of it. At least the low clouds and fog burn off, so that by the time we … Continue reading
