I was pretty surprised when I saw the cat on the elevator sign (yesterday’s post). Can you believe Mom and I saw another funny elevator sign?
At least this sign had a dog on it.
I’m pretty sure this one was for:
1. Couples (with no animals)
2. Dog owners who like to sit on big rocks
Mom usually sits on a big rocks when we take a break during hikes. When we stop by a rock, I know it means time for water and snacks. Yippee!
You can tell that the dog on the sign is expecting a snack from his human (sitting on the rock). I wonder if they were hiking too?
So, since Mom sits on rocks and has me as her dog, we got to use this elevator. I’m glad we found one that we were allowed to use.
P.S.-There were no bossy cats anywhere around, either.

Mom and I were walking along this morning when suddenly I realized we had passed several sections in the road that looked like this…
Oh no! This can’t be! Where are they?
I refused to move until I knew what was going on..
Mom tried to get me to keep walking, but I put my brakes on and wouldn’t budge. No! You can’t make me leave!
After Mom spent a few minutes
frustrated thinking about what in the world was wrong with me, she figured it out.
Then she said, “Oh, for Heaven’s sake, Behr Behr! You’re such a silly girl. These are just painted lines in the road. Your zebra friends are all just fine.” Oh. Ooops.
Ok, now I felt silly. I thought maybe my friends Zeb, Zack, and Zoe had been squished by cars. Whew!
She took me to their barn later so I could see for myself.
Now that I look back on it, I feel pretty silly. At least it made Mom laugh 🙂 Before that she was just kinda sleepwalking because it was so early.
I’m sure some of you have done silly things that made your humans laugh too. You’re doing a good thing for them by being so goofy.
If “laughter is like medicine for the heart”, then that must make us Canine Cardiologists. 🙂
Keep up the good work, my friends!

My mom is allergic to morning. At least, I think that’s what she told me.
That’s a big problem right now because it’s way too hot for us to go for walkies any other time.
It’s like 147 degrees by 8 in the morning. Yuck.
She surprised me by waking me up when it was dark outside saying, “Let’s go, Behr Behr.” Really Mom?? Woohoo!!! I woke up REAL fast before she could change her mind!
I’m no dummy.
It was weird being on the street with no one around.
There weren’t even any cars around. I think they were still asleep.
I was surprised to see my friend Donkey up so early.
This time of morning Mom is too sleepy to talk to me, so I have plenty of time to think about things. Like signs.
I’ve always wondered what they mean. Some are pretty weird, actually. Like this one-
I thought about it for a while. Then I remembered seeing a big boulder in the road one time.
Oh! It means “Go around the big rocks!”
Really I would rather jump over them. I guess humans need help deciding what to do when there’s a rock in the road.
When we headed back home, I was in a BIG hurry. Mom didn’t even feed me before we left, so I was starving!!
At least I had time to think about deep things, like what human signs mean. And I got to go for walkies with Mom, even with her allergy to morning.
Life is good.

In my last post, I told you about our fun cabin vacation. (well, except for the fake bears…)
Besides the mts. being a nice break from the hot weather, I got a break from wearing a leash and dragging my parents around. That is so tiring! They don’t even appreciate me pulling them everywhere, either.
Come on you guys! Lets get going!!
Wow, I LOVE being able to explore the woods on my own!
Here I am taking a little break by the big trees (behind me), while trying to decide what to explore next.
Yippee!! Running free!!
Even though I run free like this, Mom and Dad trained me to always stay within close sight of them. I never bother other animals, either. I’m such a good trail dog!
After running so much all day, I was one tired puppy! zzzzzzzzzzzz……
I sure wish I could have brought some of you with me. You would have loved it!

It’s so hot where we live that I’m always happy when Mom and Dad decide to go visit the mountains.
Even if I have to put up with their fascination for fake bears.
Yes, once again we’ve gone to a cabin that’s full of bear stuff. I really don’t get it, since they have a REAL Behr…ME!
This one was up high in the living room, and I thought he looked kind of creepy.
I’m wasn’t sure if he was laughing at me, or showing me his fangs.
The fake bears were everywhere, so I mainly stayed outside so I didn’t have to look at them. I kept watch though, in case more tried to come in the yard.
I was in “sniff heaven” around the cabin, since lots of wild animals pass through there at night.
When I got tired of sniffing, it was fun to watch the ducks flying down to the lake and playing in the water. I’ve been a bird watcher since I was a tiny pup.
What do you mean I wasn’t supposed to shred the bed in this dog house? Didn’t the owners tell us to “make ourselves at home?” Well, I did.
Outside wasn’t totally free of the pretend bears, though. There was a big one on the porch, unfortunately.
Mom wanted to take a picture of us together, as if we were friends or something! Notice how we won’t even look at her at all, and I refused to sit totally down and look natural.
The fake bear kept trying to get out of the picture, so they had to tie him down.
In spite of the phoney bears, I thought the trip to the cabin was a happy one. Even the trees are happy around there!
I heard Mom say something about their bark, but I never heard them make a sound. Silly trees.

My little snugglebug – ALWAYS has to go to sleep snuggling a blanket and sucking on it with her mouth. So cute!

I love summer ’cause Mom and Dad take me to the beach to practice my gymnastics moves. We go to a special beach that is only for dogs without leashes.
One of the differences between the dog beach and human beach is that the dog beach has pebbles everywhere for us to jump over. Makes you quick on your feet, you know?
The beach for humans only has sand, so people don’t learn to walk very well at beaches. That’s why you see them falling down when they play. Dogs never fall down when they play.
Here I am practicing my flying leap. Pretty awesome, isn’t it?
This is me hopping on my back feet only..
After a lot of practice, I could hop on only ONE back foot..
Eventually, I got really brave and tried hopping on only one front foot..
I can even walk on my front feet only, which is much harder than hopping. I takes a whole lot more muscles.
Because I’m not quite as good at this yet, I did cheat and use a stick for balance.
My final trick that I practiced was hopping with only my left feet! Impressive, isn’t it?
I wonder if I have a Lipizzan Stallion in my bloodline somewhere?
Whew, after that workout, I was dog tired.
I don’t think my tongue has hung out that far in ages!
You can tell by my nice slim figure that my workouts really pay off. I feel pretty confident prancing around the beach in my toned beach body.
I thought I’d let you know the secret for my nice figure, even at my age. No cosmetic surgery here.
Actually, I don’t even wear cosmetics, so I don’t know why I would need to have surgery to remove them anyhow.

One of the first places we hiked to in Oregon * was a waterfall my Mom had wanted to see for a long time. Mom and Dad love to hike to waterfalls in every state they can. This particular waterfall is called Multnohma.
At first I thought Mom was talking about somebody’s nice mutt dog who had lost his mother (mutt no ma). I was picturing a cute, mixed breed puppy who needed his mom, and we were going to go search for her. I got dressed up in my search harness and was ready to go.
Needless to say, I was disappointed to find out we were only going to go see some water. It was worse when I got there and found out that about 1,342,067 other people and their puppies wanted to see the water too. Oh, and we had to all share the same trail.
Anyhow, it turns out that it the crowds were there because the bridge, whose name is Benson, had been broken by a REALLY big rock that the mountain threw at him. He was all better now, so people could come see him. Benson was 100 years old, so I guess I understand why he got broken so badly.
Benson the bridge is 52 ft. long and 5.8 ft. wide. With that in mind, a 4 ft X 4 ft hole is not good. Actually, that’s not as bad as the last time Benson got broken. That time a rock the size of a school bus fell during a wedding and created a tidal wave 300 ft. high that washed over the bridge. The total height of the waterfall is 620 ft, but the rock fell from 542 ft. I think it would have been a lot more fun to be there that day, ’cause at least I could have played in the water.
Here’s a picture of me with Benson. It was taken in a hurry in between people walking by. Can you tell I’m drooling? I’m waiting for my snack.
I wouldn’t look at Mom’s camera because Dad had the snacks in his hand. I kept my foot on his shadow so he wouldn’t go anywhere until he gave me the snacks. Smart, huh?
So, that was our day with Benson. I’m glad that mean ‘ole mountain didn’t throw any rocks at him while we were there.
