Charlie's Big Week

Last week, Charlie's Aunt Karen (Sophie's mom) came to visit. I know it was bittersweet for her, having lost Sophie this spring and Charlie being so much like Sophie, but I also know it was fun!

Charlie says hello

Whenever possible, we took Charlie, and he had a blast. We went to brewpubs...

Lunch at Hedge House

... and to waterfalls:

Multnomah Falls

We went up Mt. Hood...

At Timberline Lodge

... and out to the gorge to buy salmon from the Indians:

Only steelhead today

Charlie met new dogs...


... and new people:



By the end of each day, he was pooped...

Headed home

... but by the next day, he was ready to go again!

"Let's go!"

Hope you had a good week too!

A big hello to Karen. It looks like you had a wonderful visit and adventures with Charlie and his family. Yes, I imagine very bittersweet, but precious too to spend time with Charlie. Give him a golden hug from me, too! Enjoy the summer,

Karen

what a great travel companion Charlie is. Looks like fun. Goldens are always a magnet, drawing hoomans into their spell.

Wow that was a great post. We used to come to your area to train the search dogs up there and it was fun to see pictures of the falls and wish you had some pictures of Mt Hood hike.

WE miss it.

That looks a very interesting week indeed. Misery says the falls look very nice. Do they always have so much water in them in summer??
