Dog Park Goodtimes and a new Orchid in bloom


                      Mom took me to the Dog Park this weekend.  Here I am near the lake...

                                         It is foggy out with a fresh frosting on everything

                                    Mom threw the stick on to the lake for me several times...


                       I met a dog  named Stella.  Stella is a labradoodle and about the same age as me.

                                             We played together for the rest of the day!

Now mom wants to hijack my blog to show her latest blooming orchid.  She says this one only blooms every other year for her so she gets all excited when it does. I have to admit it is pretty cool looking.

                          Brings a touch of summer to us up here in the dark cold Alaskan winter.



  1. That orchid is stunning! Beyond stunning. It cheered me up a little on this cold, dreary, winter day as well. As did the photos of you having so much fun! I always forget to bring my camera at times like those. Good thing your mom is more prepared.

  2. Beautiful orchid!
    I can grow things outside, but kill things inside, unless it is something that can go for months without water:(

  3. Looks like you had a great time at the park and what a cute new friend you have.

    The orchid is beautiful. :)

  4. Your play date looks like fun & you mom is an amazing photographer!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  5. Your pictures are so darned beautiful! Each one could easily be a picture postcard. My fav is the one with Ryker, stick in mouth, running so fast all four feet are off the ground. Gorgeous!


  6. Is your mom a professional photographer? If not, she has missed her calling...completely! I am serious...your mom takes the best pictures and I think she should keep up the good work! Of course, you are the best subject for all of her photos...you are so handsome and athletic, Ryker!

  7. Your mom is a fantastic photographer!!! I love all the action shots of you but I also really really like the third picture.
    You live in a beautiful land of snow.

  8. Hello Ryker, Found you through the Blog Hop,,,,it's great to meet you. Beautiful eyes, beautiful photos, & beautiful orchid,,,a pleasure to visit your blog. It looks like you & Stella had a ball. I'm in St. Louis, and we got 5 inches of snow last night. I'm headed out to play in about a half hour. Here's hoping that you & your people have a safe, and blessed, 2011.

  9. Well I can't worry too much about you because I'm SURE your lake was frozen!! I'm not letting Charlie see those pics though! :) Your orchid is so pretty!

  10. Wonderful photos... I love the way you composed them!

  11. Great photos! It looks like you're having a blast, and I love the nature photos too! The orchid is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.


Ryker is wiggling to hear your comments!
