A selfie with Mr. Tucker

We spent Saturday evening with the group of friends who walk with us (and their dogs) in the early mornings. Lots of good food, good wine, and good stories were shared.

At one point, Tucker decided that my face definitely needed to be licked. He jumped up on the couch where I was sitting, scrambled into my lap, and proceeded with repeated attempts to scrub my face with his happy tongue. I have a series of awkward selfies which recorded his attempts, which finally ended in this calm moment and a self-portrait.

An evening with friends

Trip over. Period.

We’re back! Our United flight arrived more or less on time yesterday afternoon, allowing us to get home in time to feed the cats, cook dinner, do the trip laundry, and still get to bed relatively early.

And then we were out this morning about a half-hour before sunrise for our walk with morning friends and their humans.

Dogs in motion, pictured below, right to left: Tucker, Marlo, Pumpkin, and Hao.

This morning I’ve got to run some errands and then catch up on the local news.

More later.

Morning dogs

Two very happy dogs

Even if you’re not a dog person, these two happy canine friends will probably put a smile on your face. The photos were taken when they were romping early Wednesday morning.

Marlo and Tucker aren’t related and aren’t part of the same household, although they’re looking more and more alike.

We think Marlo, who is older and still a little bigger, is a Cockapoo. Tucker, not quite a year old and about 17 pounds, is an unplanned offspring of a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Bichon Frise.

Both are very happy dogs, and they obviously enjoy each other.

Happy Dogs!

Meeting the beach bunny

Just a small moment from this morning’s walk on Kahala Beach.

Due to the Sony Open golf tournament, we’ve had to revise our daily walk to avoid the Waialae course and all the tournament activities.

So heading in the other direction, down the beach towards Black Point, we meet different people and animals.

Today Hao met a beach bunny. A real one. Everyone was a bit cautious, including Hao and the little bunny.
