I have to say… I am one busy black dog. Acting as camp ambassador is simply exhausting. In addition, this black dog is out and about with mom and dad all the time. This last month has seen us visiting other towns, checking out parks and hiking trails, and even spent a couple of nights at some apartment mom called an Airbnb.
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.
I knew it wouldn’t last long. Mom and dad had planned on us being in Portland for a few months. And, it was good. I loved spending so much time with them, but also with Dave, Anne, and my new fur friend Max. We would play in the yard, go to the park, and go for walks a few times a day. Max is a little odd, he never cared about fetching at all, which is fine by me. I didn’t have to be quite so careful with my toys around him. But, they got restless, and soon enough we were back on the road to adventure.
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.
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.

Ever since mom and dad first took me to the beach, I have suspected I was a beach dog. Oh, I am a lab, which means I love doing pretty much ANYTHING, but the beach is my favorite. I tend to get so excited I hop around and mom calls me her bouncy puppy. I must admit I feel young and free when running the beach!

As our faithful readers know, we often camp with our uncles Ron and Dario. We just love them and were super excited when mom told us we would be spending the weekend with them at Stub Stewart Memorial Park! What we didn’t know, what was a HUGE surprise to us, is that this time they brought their own pup, Blake.
Last weekend mom & dad brought us to the lake. Not just any lake, but a lake where our group had our own little beach. A lake that was only a foot or so deep for a very long ways into the water. A lake where I got to swim and fetch and nap and roll in the sand and do it all over again. A lake where mom and dad left me off leash nearly all weekend, and even Porter got to spend time frolicking free. In other words. Doggie Nirvana.

Last weekend, Porter and I were SO lucky because we got to spend an extra long weekend with mom & dad at camp. The destination, Timothy Lake, one of our favorites. The reason, mom & dad were celebrating something they call a wedding anniversary. Now, I have no idea what a wedding is, and less what an anniversary means, but apparently they have now been married for 25 years. It seemed like a big deal, even in human years, but can you imagine….. thats like 175 dog years, no wonder they say they’re old!
