Relishing my new life as camp ambassador

Well, I have just got to thank mom and dad for bringing me here to Camp Coeur D’Alene! I am having the best time as camp ambassador. It’s really nice here with SO much to smell. Every day we go on hikes and long walks. I get to play fetch, of course, my very favorite thing and get to go swimming. along with fellow camp dogs Bailey, Zorro, and Freddy.

A Black Dog heading North

It’s raining. And I mean it is RAINING. Like all the time. What can I say, I’m just a little dog, but what the hell were mom and dad thinking by heading north and back to Oregon? I mean, it’s raining! And cold. And there is no beach to run on every day. I guess you can tell by my tone a lot has happened since my last update.

Lake Living

Well I have to say,  we are now in a place that is nearly doggie perfection. Mom and dad keep talking about how beautiful it is. Well, I don’t really know, or care, about that… but I can attest to the fact that the weather is perfect! Sunny and comfortable during the day, a little bit of rain most afternoons, and sleeping weather at night. What more could a dog ask for? Well, a lot more.. but first, let me tell you about the trip here!

Apartment Life in Puerto Vallarta

Well, my circumstances have changed YET again!

After leaving the United States, mom and dad drove us back into Mexico and I could not have been happier. Mexicans are so much nicer about letting me go everywhere with my family AND I get to go on all the beaches, not just stinky dog beach like in San Diego.

Back on the Road

WOW. It has been a crazy few weeks! I was awfully sad after I lost my brother Porter, but mom and dad spoiled me even more than before. It took me a couple of weeks to get out of my funk but it helped that we were back on the road and racing all over the place!

Finding my Way

I have been having a bit of a tough time this two weeks. Porter was my family, my pack, and with him gone we are all sad. Mom and dad don’t cry all the time, anymore, but I know they wish he was still with us.  Being a dog, I don’t fully understand it all, but I do know my little buddy was really sick and now isn’t with us anymore. I’m so glad we got to spend that last day together though, and that mom and dad let me be in the room when he went to sleep so I could touch his nose and tell him goodbye in my own way. Now I am finding my way on my own.

Saying Goodbye

This week we had to say goodbye to my brother, Porter, when he went to doggie heaven. I knew he hadn’t been feeling well and those last couple of days I could tell he was really sick.  Mom already wrote about that bad, bad day. What I want is to remember all the good times we had. I am feeling very sad and out of sorts myself so I decided to just do a pictorial of all of the fun times we had together.

A Visit to the Vet

By Aspen ~

Yesterday I spent the day cuddling Porter. The wind is blowing so hard it’s no fun at the beach, well that is at least what mom says, and it even rained!!! Now, when I say it rained I mean actual rain. Last time it “rained” on us in Baja it was something like seven raindrops. Yesterday and this morning it actually RAINED.. almost like at home but just for a lot shorter time. But nonetheless, mom and dad declared it a lazy day in the camper with them working on their computer stuff that they seem to spend so much time on and Porter and I napping at their feet.
