Dentists have recommended that a toothbrush be kept at least six (6) feet away from a toilet to avoid airborne particles resulting from the flush. (I keep my toothbrush in the living room now !)  

Turtles can breathe through their butts.(I know some people like that, don't you?)    Now go move your toothbrush !!!

Berry Picking Season

It is berry picking season and we have had a lot of fun doing just that!  Not that we got all that many berries but the experience was fun none the less.
We started our adventure up at Alyeska and did find some tasty blueberries, but it was a struggle for mom to get to them and the heavy rain drenched us.  But I had a great time anyhow running and playing frisbee.

The following weekend we headed in the opposite direction, north to Hatcher's Pass.  There we also encountered rain but had more success with the berries and the scenery was spectacular once again!

This is the Independence mine ( in Hatcher's Pass) of mom's youth.  It has been reconstructed and now looks like this...

Mom got most of her blueberries on this slope around this old cabin.  She was slip slidin' around in the mud and the rain.  I think I will need to give her a bath when she gets home.  Maybe she should ride in the back of the car too.  She's too dirty to ride up front!

We were keeping an eye out for bear.  They are also berry picking in these parts although we did not see any this day.

The road to get up here is long and bumpy with big old rocks sticking up out of the mud...

I saw several beaver dams...
Being above the tree line they must work very hard obtaining brush to eat and build their homes.

Mom warned me to steer clear of the beaver as they are very protective and have been know to gut a dog.  OK, no problem mom.  I will  keep my distance!

Mom also picked Crow Berries.  They were much more prolific and easier to pick.  She ended up putting them in her smoothies but they make a great pie as well.

The crow berries were very thick along this ridge.

So what are you picking in your neck of the woods?

There's Gold in them there hills

Well, you can't live long in Alaska with out trying your paw at gold panning. At least that was my experience.  It also makes for fun male bonding time with dad.

He chose the Little Susitna River for this adventure.

Do you see any gold, huh dad, huh???

Well, we did get some flakes of gold.  Enough to want to come back and do it again!

 So there is gold in these here hills and streams.    Pawing for gold is fun!

I have very exciting news.  My doggy mama Gracie had her third and last litter of puppies!  August 13th she delivered 7 babies, 4 boys and 3 girls, all blue merles like me.  Since they were born on a full moon they have all have moon themed names.

Just look at all those little wiggle butts!  My mama rocks!

This is Ziggy. He is the daddy to this litter, but not my daddy.  He is much smaller than my dad.

So here are close-ups of my new half-sibs...

This is Jace





Ming Yeu

They are a handsome bunch.  Mom says she would love to bring little Ming Yeu home but alas, Dad says no.  And truth be known I am not so sure I my folks sharing their affections with anyone else but me.
