The view from my perch on the mountain


A picture is worth 1,000 words so here are 2,000.


Buddy is still growing! If he keeps this up he’ll be hard pressed to get enough of his head out the window when he wants to enjoy his new found passion for the wind blowing his ears and lips back as we travel around town.

When we first adopted him he was content to ride in the middle of the back seat, watching the world go by through the windshield. One day he stuck his head out the window while we waited for a traffic light and he still had it out when we started moving. The look on his face said “YEE-HAW, THIS IS FUN!”


He’s come to enjoy riding this way so much that he’ll scratch at the window with his paw if I forget to lower it. Then one day he accidentally put his paw on the electric window button and you could almost see the light bulb pop up over his head.

Even though Buddy’s gotten so big he can barely fit his head and neck through the open window (and the window openings in my Ford Expedition, Godzilla, are not small) I still keep the “child safety” feature on the power windows engaged. That dog is incredibly intelligent and I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if he decided to roll the window down so that he could jump out of the truck to chase after something……… or run amok in McDonald’s. He already knows that when we pull up to those golden arches Momma’s going to get him a double cheeseburger!

  4. Our little brown Long-Haired Dachshund likes to look out the window, but we don’t give her enough room to get her head out. We’re afraid the rest of her would follow!
