Year 3 Day 95: I don’t know if you know but I have this crazy knack for finding balls when we go explore.
Found this one at the beach and chased it around a while. At one of our favorite walking spots I regularly find up to 4 per walk. Our last walk though.... man oh man did I find a TREASURE of a ball way down at the bottom of a steep hill on the side of a waterfall. Gave mama a heart attack when I ran down to get it then intentionally dropped it so I could chase it again.
Ball is life, amiright? Ma’s a coach. She should understand.
When Lee-Ann from @threadzntails made this special cozy just for me, I don't know how she knew I would have a special bond with the bees. Every morning I go outside to play and spend lots of time trying to eat sky raisins, moths and ants. But when my special black and yellow fuzzy furriends come, I sit and watch them with quizzical admiration. They bring a sense of calmness over me, interrupting my crazy outside zoomies. I never paw at them or try and eat them like all the other bugs that come within pouncing distance. Thank you Lee-Ann and thank you bees 😽 #threadzntailsthursday

OMG guys, I just got the biggest stuffy EVER and I’m SO happy about it! 🐾
I am silly excited to be sleeping out in the tent tonight!!
I've had the tent set up, and taken day naps, but it has been so cold out at night still that sleeping outside seemed silly... well, tonight our low is supposed to be 43, perfect tenting weather!! ☆
You can find me outside, surrounded by the dogs (and maybe a Brett), roasting peeps at the camp fire and sipping on some beers. ☆
Choose your own adventure baby!!
I like to hike!! Especially on gorgeous days like today!!

The older I get the more I find myself drawn to the lifestyle aspect and not so much the big adventure. Don’t get me wrong, I still love the adventure part. I love planning trips, saving money, budgeting. I love piling everything I need for a night onto my bike or on my back and trudging miles into the wilderness.
But lately I’ve been realizing I’m also about the everyday parts. Watching Amos running across frozen lakes or the sides of mountains makes me realize I don’t want some big adventure every few weeks to be the only time he gets to do that. I want it every day. But big adventure everyday isn’t very sustainable. I have a job to keep and I truly enjoy it. We live in a house in the city. Right now, with the pandemic raging, money is tight and big adventures are by and large prohibited.
So, I’m thankful for the micro, everyday ones. The times we ride a mile on our bikes to a frozen beach and set up with beers and our little foam seats. The times we ride a mile out on a frozen trail and sit on the side of a mountain. The times we ride down the bike path to the lagoon and go ice skating.
With this pandemic a lot has shifted. Suddenly overnight we find ourselves stuck in one place. This is causing some chaos for a lot of people. But I really do believe the more flexible and adaptable we can be, the better we will weather this. If our identities are based solely on one thing (living in a van, climbing, etc), we will have a harder time. But if we are able to react and adapt and adjust… there’s the chance we’ll actually thrive during this time.

“What is life but one grand adventure.”
Getting Nanook a couple years back opened my eyes to a different world. Having a dog who enjoys the outdoors as much as Nanook encourages me to get out more. I couldn’t be more thankful for all of the adventures and all of the friends I have made.

Leo will always be a bandana pup! Thank you @twelvepawsca for always having the coolest patterns. I love the design. The collar slips through the bandana rather than having to tie it. So when you take off the collar it also removes the bandana which is very convenient! Who makes your favorite bandanas??

I think a lot of you already know about her from my story, but meet Elmo the Toy Poodle! .
She’s my parent’s so once my girls and I are back in Utah she won’t be coming with us. My parent’s got her here in Japan and she will of course be flying back to San Diego once things are settled with the COVID situation. .
Until then I’m also stuck in Japan and she’s the tiniest and cutest distraction from missing my girls😢 Very active and feisty just like Aria & Raisin!

Happily staying 2 meters from her younger brother 😉 .
Nothing better than looking down at this cute face! 😍 He typically would avoid looking at the camera, but not when treats are out 🤪. Is your dog really treat motivated?? It’s been pretty easy teaching new tricks because he will do anything for a treat 🙌🏻. ——

Have you been taking time to train lately? I have been trying hard to maintain a schedule even though I’m frankly exhausted and distracted. I’ve been trying to do 3 short sessions per day with each dog. 🐾
Barley is doing a few minutes each of agility, detection, and tricks/husbandry. He’s working on start line stays and wrapping around trees, double-blind searches, nail trims, and a few fun tricks. Madge is still just learning to trust. 🐾
But amidst these goals, I’m also finding myself daydreaming, sleeping, and eating a lot. And that’s ok right now. We’re all stressed and doing the best we can. 🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾 #dogtrainer#dogtrainingtips#agilitydog@fenzidogsportsacademy#fdsa#bordercollieworld#bordercollielover#dogsthathike#greatoutdogs#backcountrypaws

Every morning I bask in the glow of the sun as it filters through my bedroom window.
I lie in my bed, staring upwards and count the little dots that freckle the ceiling. Until the sun rises higher in the sky, and next thing I know it's 1pm. Or noon, maybe even 2pm. I think about all the things I could be doing, or even should be doing. But at the end of the day it doesn't really matter, I have no deadlines, and infinite days off. Nothing I do during the day is pressing. It's just a filler to occupy my time until the sun sets on the other side. Until it filters through the living room window and the news comes on to remind us what a shit show this all is.
looking forward to the weekend even though no van trips for us over the holiday for obvious reasons but human said we might be able to #camp out in the #garden if the tent fits so that will be cool as we will be supporting the @greatbritishcampout raising money for the #nhs through the #greatbritishcampout What are y’all doing
📍Olympia National forest, Washington state 
Every single time I’m feeling down, sad, or overworked, I remind myself that my choices will never be as difficult as the one where Sam Gamgee had to choose between Frodo and beloved Bill a pony at the mines of moria.

Come take a walk on the wild side with me...
We may not be able to adventure, but mom says she’s got the treatos... even a little ice cream and whip cream for a perfect date for us 😉 . She has lots of dog movies we can watch, we can stay up late eat each other’s faces and cuddle in the blankets... and she even said she’d turn away, if I decided I wanted to give a smooch 😘... DW I’ll be a gentleman .
Who’s ready to join 🙃

Clocked Amos at 25 MPH on our ride today, and once again I will loudly remind anyone who breathes within 10 but no closer than 6 feet of me: he is an ATHLETE 👏🏼🦉💜

Them baby blues lightening up everyone’s Monday! ⤔
One of the photos that I really wish the whole thing would fit. I have a hard time with them walking towards me and me getting it in focus but I absolutely love this one.

Today’s throwback features a very typical moment in our lives 🤣 posing for a pic! One of my all time favorite shots came from this series. We were downtown Telluride just as the sun rose and wanted that iconic shot in the middle of Main street. It is a parking lane, so people often pose in the middle of the road to capture that mountain town feeling; the strip of old, brick, buildings engulfed by the surrounding mountains. Telluride was truly a magical place, I could see myself living there for maybe a year or two but definitely on the smaller side for me! Once this virus stuff calms down I hope to head back down there for some epic hiking!
