Pyrosis, that was a beautiful tribute to your dog. It will get better over time but you're right, the first dog is always super special no matter how much we love those who follow.

Edit: I see you have moved along faster than I could read this thread. You'll never regret it. It sounds like you need to move slowly and be careful when you pick up a broom or a stick round your new dog. He sounds like he was badly abused.

The new guy. He loves us but he is afraid of all the mattress people when we go on walks to the Bishop dog park ;)

Chiloe,

Sorry for your loss of Jack the Magnificent...but happy that you and he had such a long life together. We are all so much better for the love of our pets, aren't we.

Speaking of which, here's my pooch: Bernie

I look really good in flowers, don't I?

Bernie was adopted from the ASPCA when he was a year old

Please take me home. Can't you see how perfect I am for you?

He's smart and friendly and just a big love-muffin...who's also an amazing Therapy Dog at the NY Children's Hopital

Bernie knows a little love can go a long way

But put this mild mannered pooch out on a mountain trail, and he turns into Bernie The Wolf! However, that's another story...

We've supplied kibble to a number of dogs but only two of them proved they could feed themselves if we stopped. One was a wolflike husky who definitely looked the part, and somehow knew workable hunting strategies for at least 3 different kinds of prey (and alas, a spectacularly unworkable strategy for porcupines). The other is our lap dog Sophie, who turns holes into projects if we let her.

Not much of a wolf, but highly skilled among ducks...

Looks like you were waiting in line for a ferry, Apogee. Where was that shot taken?

Anacortes?

EDTI:

Has to be Anacortes. The line-up on Orcas is nowhere near as expansive as the Anacortes holding area.

I do.

I have a cousin who has a place on San Juan Island, and I like to drop in on him when I'm in the neighborhood. That requires a ferry ride, which is an event in itself. Front-row seat to some of the most awesome scenery anywhere. I've made that run over a dozen times, and it gets better every trip.

This one's from a couple years back, but it's both dog related and San Juan Islands related:


( Mom and step-dad Bill w/dog, and cousin Mitch )

We were at the lighthouse that day on Lime Kiln Point ( San Juan Island ):


( being a total professional, I got my shot, while juggling family, dog, tricky winds [ kite and camera got stuck in one of those trees, until the wind came up and lifted them out, while my cousin laughed his ass off ] and ferry schedules )

This year:


I love ships and things nautical. But I can't see myself cooped up on a cruise ship anymore than I want to check into a hotel and stay there. But the ferries through the San Juans are my kind of cruise. I can't recommend a ferry trip to Friday Harbor or Orcas and back highly enough.





I was visiting my folks. What were you doing up there, Apogee? We may have crossed paths. ( I'll buy the first beer if it ever happens again )

My crag buddy Buster. Most chilled dog ever, he really is one of the boyz.
Here he is in his element at our local Arkansas crag.
