Transitions

Moving has been…well…interesting. And quite the adventure!

  • We sold our house–that was easy.
  • We bought a house–not so easy.

At least I think we have a new house. Mom says we do, but we’ve been living here, there and somewhere since we left Portland! Right now, we’re in a (sorta) Tiny House (that’s what Mom calls it) somewhere in Marin California. At least the kitties are now with us and we are surviving in 290 sq. ft. — about the size of a big crate, don’tcha think?

Meanwhile, I’ve enjoyed the wildlife. I wasn’t sure about those sheep, but we actually touched noses! Maybe that wasn’t what a herding dog should do, but I was trying to be neighborly. You have to do that when you move, or so they say….

On the other hand, those deer weren’t taking any chances!

I understand there’s a bunch of hiking trails nearby, so I think we’ll be checking some of them out soon. Meanwhile, here’s what I’ve found nearby:

Pretty militant, huh?

More my speed! 😀 Too bad there wasn’t any water!

Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge

I know I haven’t been around much lately. I hope you are still my furiends. 🙂

It’s been a long couple of months:

  • I watched Mom put lots of our stuff in boxes (not all, just a lot–I still had my kibble).
  • Then those boxes went in a huge, huge box…and they took it all away.
  • Then, I couldn’t be home for a few days (Pee Ess: Mom made sure we had some fun adventures).
  • Then she told me we sold our house for LOTS of $$$.
  • Then she told me we have no place to live.

WHAT????This is too scary!

It was time for an adventure.

Mom heard about a neat trail just a couple of miles away–one we’ve never explored–that meanders around the bottom of a cliff next to the Willamette River. It’s a wildlife refuge and really marshy, which meant I had to stay on my leash. That was OK…we were on an adventure!! DucksPart way along the trail, we walked past a local mortuary that had painted the entire outside to reflect the wildlife living below. Pretty cool, huh?

IMG_0357On the backside of our adventure, we walked a part of the Springwater Corridor that goes past an amusement park that’s been there since 1905 (we see this park a lot when we walk along the river on the other side). It even has a really old wooden skating rink!Oaks BottomBack on the trail, I found a lot of water. I was getting a bit thirsty, but Mom said this wasn’t water I could drink. And I know some of you don’t believe it, but I didn’t even get my belly wet! We were moving too fast–something about endorphins, I think. Marshy water

 We have 6 more weeks left in Portland and hopefully we can cram in a few more adventures. Soon we’ll have a whole new place to explore! IMG_0360The Popstar is so excited that we are going to live near her–she’s picked out lots of houses for us, but they don’t have that silly sign out front and don’t want our $$$.

What’s up with that?
