Creeper Photo: You Know You’re in Montana When….

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

I have had a myriad of experiences with dogs on my many road trips across the country including this one. This picture really epitomizes Montana for me, a woman pulled into her local post office on a four-wheeler with her big dog patiently waiting for her on the back. Basically, you know you’re in the middle of nowhere Montana when you see people riding around town in four wheelers. It is kind of like how you know you’re in Michigan when you see that tractors are basically the only cars on the road for miles. Let me just say, it is beyond annoying to drive behind a tractor, one you can’t see around it, two it goes about five miles per hour on flat roads. Don’t get me started on up hill roads.

Back to my initial point, the picture itself. I really enjoy this dog. Driving across the country I have seen all kinds of dogs, paired with all sorts of vehicles going around little towns. Like in Big Basin Nevada when we saw this little white lab with goggles, a cape, and the biggest smile you will ever see on a dog riding around in a motorcycle compartment. Quite the sight. The fact that this dog was just sitting there, precariously perched on the back of this four-wheeler is somehow funnier. It makes me wonder how often this dog goes for joy rides in this thing.

I miss the road trips, the weird experiences, and odd sights like these. I hope I get to do another adventure soon so I can take all of you along with me.


Creeper Photo: Hula Hooper

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

I saw you on the beach  dancing around with a hula hoop playing catch with your dog. You seemed so happy and care free, you didn’t care who saw you or what they thought. You were just there to have fun. I was a little worried you would steal my dog, you seemed to like her a lot and wanted to play with her. Sorry I couldn’t stick around keep up the good attitude. I hope to see you again some time hula hooping on the beach.


Creeper Photo: Dog Tired

Sunday, November 29th, 2009


You were really nice and let me take a picture of your dog. Your husband scared me because he said I would have to pay a dollar to take a picture…. that is why I normally don’t ask for permission to take these photos but you seemed so nice so I had to ask. Your little puppy was so cute all bundled up in your shirt. You said she was tired from playing on the beach. Her owner loves her very much, it makes me happy to see love like that even if it is a tired love. It is nice you know you can sleep safely in the arms of a loved one. đŸ˜€


Ode to the Absent Pet

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009


I saw this dog a long time ago at the SPCA and I really wanted to adopt you.I still think of you.

I know I was meant to be your owner. It was so hard for me to walk away from you. I wonder what happened along the road that split our paths?

I think of you a lot. I wonder what happened to you. You were adorable so I am sure you are in a nice home some where. I just wish it was my home. I wonder what your owner named you. I wanted to name you Kita. I guess it was even harder for me to walk away with a name on my lips. It is the nameless and the faceless that are forgotten.

By now you are probably old and have become accustomed to your new home. I wonder why you were abandoned. It said you were deserted, but I can’t think of why. You are so nice and cute, who would give you up? Maybe they couldn’t afford you, maybe they weren’t prepared, or maybe they just didn’t care.

The SPCA probably took good care of you in the time being. I hope you are happy and loved. I still miss you.

Polar Dog

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

No this isn’t animal abuse, my dog enjoys hats… specially my polar bear one.


Her fur almost matches, maybe the next genetic hybrid should be the polar dog. Well Gracie, at least you can be the first.
