Giant Pining

Guinness here reporting from Crick Hollow. My human took another "MENTAL HEALTH DAY" from work to come up here and chillax. It is an overcast day, so we make a fire!

We boil some water on that fire and make coffee. Everything is peaceful. There are no sounds except what August breeze and robin's wing will say!

CLUNK! zzzzzzz....I fall fast asleep. But my human had too much coffee and can hear her heart beat pounding in her head...

She is working on this mosiac made from broken tile in the tiny camp bathroom.

...And outside by the Giant Pine Tree is a sun from Gram and Gramps.

It is to mark Saige's favorite tree. That is where she always sat and guarded camp.

And all the dirt where she use to dig and play is still all messed up with her footprints.

And nevermind this picture. Groucho stuck it in here for comic relief when I was not looking.

And now my human wants to go for a walk. But look--I do not want to go! I know that inside the camp there is a soft bed, a warm fire...

...and some nice belly rubs......


  1. Sounds like a wonderful place to be!

  2. Nice post...and I appreciate the comic relief because I got a little teary eyed.

  3. I still have yet to come to this place. I need to before summer is over!

  4. I love your little hideaway! Thanks for sharing it with us in words and pictures. Hee hee, and for including Groucho.

    and Mel! and Joan!!! ;-)

  6. Can't wait to visit with little Oli! Love.

  7. Oh, what a great place you have there! It is so beautiful inside and out. Wish we could be there too!

  8. Mental health days with mom are always great.

    Thanks for the photo of the alien because I was getting kind of choked up seeing Miss Saige again. Enjoy your cabin and belly rubs.


  9. What a great place for a little getaway. We are sure you all miss Saige so much - nice to have the little memories of her life with you. Hi, Groucho:)

  10. What a wonderful place to go. It's good to get away to peace & quiet sometimes. We missed you but are glad you are back! Guinness you are a handsome guy!! We did not know Saige was gone but like your Mom our M & D have lots & lots of good memories of pups that have been & gone before us.

  11. That's a terrific place to Vege out and just do what YOU want to. The mosaic is coming along well!

    Naturally, we're glad Groucho snuck in, too.

  12. hehehe Love Groucho's face!
    Darwin got playtime yesterday with her Irish Wolfhound friend, Tessa, made me think of you guys and glad to see a post!

  13. What a magical place and we love the sun to mark Saige's favourite tree. It made us happy and sad at the same time.

    Groucho - great photo!

    take care

  14. SIGH... Guinness that is just a super duper tour of your special place. Love the mosiac your mom is doing in the peeple potty.
    A touch of Groucho never hurts.

  15. My people dream of having a place like that someday!

  16. What a great place. Mom takes those mental days and stays home with us. Bet you guys sure miss Sage..

  17. Don't you sometimes wish you could just stay there looks so peaceful.
    We know it is hard without Saige - our humans still miss Harry and that's over two years!
    It is good to mark the tree and remember it as a special place to think of Saige.
    Much love

    ps great to see Groucho - he always brings a smile!

  18. Guinness, I don't blame you one bit for staying in front of the fire and having a snooze. What a sweet little cottage you have made!

    Cheers and hugs,

    Stella and Jo

  19. What a charming place. I would not want to leave either, Guinness.

  20. What a beautiful spot to sit and remember Saige on - that is lovely. We liked seeing Groucho too - he always makes us smile! Well, he's such a handsome dude, he he he!
