So what's a handsome guy like me looking for? Love you say, well yes and no. You see I have taken a vow of celibacy so I am really looking for a platonic long-term and meaningful relationship. My ideal soul mate would be someone older than me (I am 5) and preferably a lot older now that I think about it. A steady job and a house with a fenced yard would also be a big> plus in my book. The fence will need to be tall as I do my jumping jacks in the morning for exercise and would not want to accidentally jump over the fence (its happened before). I am a rugged yet sensitive fellow who knows how to be affectionate and I am a great kisser even if I have to say so myself (ok semi-platonic relationship). But I really love outdoor activities (except in the summer heat). If you hike or go camping then I am definitely your guy as I love to go for long walks in the forest and smell the smells, jump the fallen logs, chase the frogs and do all the great things you do on a hike. Oh yea, I also love having lunch on the trail. Well, actually, I love having lunch anytime but it tastes especially good when you are on the trail. My foster home has a couple of mini-people and we all get along great. They also have, not to be too pejorative, a bunch of, well, dogs, and I get along with them great too although they don't hike so I'm not sure what they are for. Anyway if you think I am the one for you, then please submit your application and I will review it. I am pretty selective however.

Can you beleive it? I meet these people on Saturday, they came over to see me. I thought it was because of my DogStar status and they wanted an pawagraph. Well before I knew it they came back yesterday and swept me away. They even brought me a bear! Of course I carried him all the way to the car. They are a really nice human pair and I think I can train them pretty good. I get to go to work with one of the humans and I think I will like that alot. You know I will have to greet the other people in the work pace and make sure they understand who is the top dog! I will miss Husky Haven, they treated me well there and loved me alot, I know they are happy for me, but I also know they will always have an eye on me to make sure I am doing well.

Thank you Husky Haven for taking me in and giving me a place to stay where I was safe and loved till my forever home came along. My story begins now that I am home.

Hiking in the Mud

Well, what a day. Miki and I went hiking on the Lone Star Hiking
Trail today so she could finish her WPD hiking requirements. It was
a really nice day with the temperature starting around 40 in the
morning and warming up to 65 or so later in the day. It was perfect
and I did not even have to take my coat off all day!

The first third of the trail was in great shape considering all the
rain we have had of late. I was thinking about it some at the Home
Show yesterday and I admit to having been a little worried that we
could not use the trails. But, mostly, they were no problem. Now,
the great part was that there were still enough mud puddles to have
fun with. My hiking buddy kept telling me to go to the left side or
right side of the puddles but I ignored him. I figured what could he
do about it – I'm a dog after all. So I just pretended I did not
know what he was saying. It was great. Water and mud went
everywhere, on me, on my pack, just everywhere. What a good time!!

We had about 20 water crossing to do. Some were not even worth
noticing but some of the streams had a lot of water. We had to cross
one stream on a 6" wide board. That was fun. Miki fell off and what
a splash. The water was not very deep but she got all wet and almost
took her hiking buddy with her. Of the four of us, I am the only one
that did not fall today. My hiking buddy almost went swimming today
too – it was pretty funny.

We had quite a surprise at what we thought was the end of the hike.
The trail data was wrong and the trail we were on was only 8 miles
not 10.7 like we thought. Since Miki needed 10 miles for her WPD we
had to extend the hike some. As this was not planned, some issues
occurred. We first followed a power line ROW for about a mile and
then followed an unmarked trail back into the forest. It worked out
really well for about a mile but then the trail kind of ended.
Perhaps that is the reason it was not marked. Anyway, it was longer
to get back than to go forward so we made our own trail and went

It turns out that Miki is not as slim as she thinks as she had some
trouble getting through the brush especially with her backpack. Well
actually now that I think of it that is not quite true. She pushed
through the brush pretty well but it turned out that her hiking buddy
was not as short as she was and he kept hitting the saplings and the
like. It did not seem to bother her much as when he hit something
she just pulled harder – she was just trying to help you know. She
and her hiking buddy discussed the matter some but I did not pay any
attention to what they were saying. Anyway, we eventually crossed
the Lone Star Trail and then just followed it back to the car. That
was pretty fun and I even found some deer trails on the cross-country

I have to tell you that my coat got kind of dirty but I will have it
washed tomorrow so you don't have to worry about it. I now have 81
miles pack hiking and 36 of those miles can even count for the WPDX.
But I am going to retire for the year and will be coming home
tomorrow. It is only fair that someone else have a chance to go
hiking before it gets too hot. Thanks for letting me go camping and

Woo Wooooooooooo

A camping trip for me! 1/9/08

Boy I hiked 26 miles and I'm pooped!! Friday Miki, Buck and I met at
Nails Creek State Park for a campout. They were quite late getting
in as their driver had some car problems. They all ended up setting
up their tent in the dark. My hiking buddy and I just slept in the
back of the truck so we had it easy, well kind of. It turns out that
my hiking buddy snores, which made it a little hard for me to
sleep. What a racket!!

Anyway on Saturday morning we all put on our back packs and went on
the Lake Somerville Trail. It was a long hike for sure. The trail
is 13 miles from Nails Creek SP to the Birch Creek SP at the other
end of the trail. There were quite a bit of up and down sections we
had to go through. As we got kind of a late start, we ended up
hitting the meadows just after noon. The sun had come out and it got
pretty warm. We stopped every few miles, rested and drank lots and
lots of water. My hiking buddy said I wasted too much water so he
taught me to drink from a sports bottle. It is kind of weird but it
works ok. I still prefer a bowel however.

I did get a pretty yummy lunch on the trail and some cookies. I had
beef and gravy while Miki and Buck just had kibbles for lunch and I
think they we jealous. Well, they are only Malamutes anyway. Miki
also went through a lot of water. She was a sponge. Glad I did not
have to carry water for her too!

By the time we got to the campground at Birch Creek everyone was
pretty tired. Oh I forgot, I saw a family of wild piggies and later
we had three wild pigs run across our path maybe 30 feet in front of
us. I wanted to give chase and teach them some manners but my hiking
buddy said we needed to keep on the path. He can be such a party
poop sometimes….

We all crashed hard on Saturday night. It was a nice cool night and
you could see all the stars and everything. Of course, the snore
machine was turned on later in the night and he was right by my
ears. But I was so tired I went to sleep pretty fast anyway. The
morning came pretty early it seemed but we wanted to get an early
start so be could get out of the meadow area before it got hot.

The trip back was a lot easier I thought and Miki and Buck did much
better today. It took us about an hour less to do the 13 miles back
than it did to go. We all carried a lot more water today also which
was good and bad. Water is heavy but we drank most of it along the
way. My lunch today was Salmon and Rice from the can. Very tasty!
Poor Miki and Buck got kibbles again – oh well.

We got back to the ranger station at Nails Creek at about 3:30 and
Mr. Ranger signed my witness sheet. Wow, I now have 71 miles
packing!!! Well, I am tired and going to bed but I will post some
pictures tomorrow after I am rested. I will see you tomorrow
afternoon after my bath.

Love you always,
Snow Bear
