Close-ups

It is the lazy, hot days of July (ok, a high of 75 F (24 C) here, but that’s hot for us) so not much is happening here.  But we are doing are trails, trying to stay cool, and getting admired by tourists.  Well, the dogs are getting admired by tourists.  In that spirit, some close-ups from the trail today.  Apologies that Kodiak and Cheoah are not represented – they were not being cooperative with the camera and I had to keep wiping their nose prints off the lens.  Nose art is cute on a window, but not a camera lens.  First up, a semi-cooperative Rusty:

Next, the other blue eyed boy, Qannik, giving me the “why are you calling my name” look:

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
