Fido and Me - Lights Out

October 31, 2013

“Something is terribly wrong,” Fido said.

“I noticed you are in some kind of funk, Big Boy. What’s up?”

“Where is my supper?”

“Supper will be right on time, I know how you count on it, the way you pace around when it’s supper time. I also noticed you started pacing about an hour early.”

“You’re late with my supper. I’m starving.”

Fido and Me - Cats

October 17, 2013

“Tell me about cats.”

“Gosh, Fido, there’s not a lot to say. And anyway, you live with Chief, and he’s a cat. Why don’t you ask him?”

“I don’t think Chief knows anything.”

“Sure he does. He has a brain.”

“It is the size of a walnut!”

“Fido, your own brain isn’t what I would call overwhelming.”

“But it’s bigger than a walnut.”

Off The Trail: Turning Point

September 23, 2013

It was a hot, still morning and the smell of summer was adrift on the hazy golden air—pine sap; sage; the deep green scents of manzanita and ceanothus; the lavender aroma of lupine gone to seed.

Even the bees, spiraling through the waning fireweed along the trail, seemed lazy: somnolent, barely able to keep their heavy, furred bodies alight.

Fido and Me - Tennis, anyone?

August 8, 2013

“Phtooey. Pfft, Pfft.”

“Gee whiz, Fido, if I’d have known you were going to react like this, I’d have never brought you to the tennis courts. Maybe you want to sit outside the fence, and I’ll just bank the ball against the wall for a while.”

“But I like tennis balls!”

“Maybe you like them a little bit to much, Mr. Beeg. The idea is to treat the ball with tenderness—like an egg.”

“I don’t do tenderness very well.”

Fido and Me - Trail Dog

August 6, 2013

“I never thought there was such a thing as a bad hike.”

“Me neither, Fido, but I have to say, this one sure is a slog.”

“It’s not the smoke so much, although my dog-lungs aren’t exactly functioning properly, and my eyes are stinging, and you look a lot like the Marlboro Man right about now.”

Off The Trail: Piute Pass gives hikers a fast, gorgeous way to get to the far side of the Sierra

July 29, 2013

Piute Pass is one of the fastest, easiest (well, easy is a relative term in the Eastern Sierra) ways into the high alpine country that dominates the Sierra backcountry.

Along the five-mile hike to the top of a 11,400-foot pass, hikers will pass two beautiful teal and indigo high-country lakes and numerous waterfalls and swimming holes, along with sweet, alpine meadows and wildflowers.

Fido and Me - Home Again

June 10, 2013

“I’m home, I’m home, thank Dog Almighty, I’m home!”

“Fido, you might have that ‘Dog Almighty’ thing turned around, but I get your point. It’s good to be back, isn’t it?”

“It felt like I was gone a year. That’s seven years to you, and that’s a long time. I thought I’d never ever get back here!”

“Surely, though, you enjoyed various adventures on your dog-cation.”

“Most of them were bad.”
