My Cool Alaskanada Summer

Tripawds Spokedawg Wyatt found the perfect place to spend summer in Alaskanada, way in the cool north. Join him on his summer adventure!

Oh Canada how I love thee! Hey Alaska, you’re not bad yourself either! Thank you for a long, cool summer, it’s just the kind of weather a dawg like me prefers.

I like this glacier thing.

From the Yukon to the coast and everywhere inbetween, I couldn’t have asked for a better summer. There is water everywhere up  here!

Give me water, hear me roar!

Every chance I got I went for a swim. Cool water? Who cares, if the sun’s out, I’m game! The only problem with all that nice water is . . . MOSQUITOES!

See the black dots in the photo? Yes my friend, those are the legendary Alaska mosquitoes swarming around me! As big as a house fly and completely indestructible. Scary beasts aren’t they? I was not happy when mom took this picture.

Can you see the giant Alaska mosquitoes? I can!

Of course being a three-legged dog, mom takes it easy with me. My hikes are pretty short and I only swim for a few minutes at a time (like maybe 5 laps), then rest for a few minutes.

Water is my friend. Mosquitoes can’t get me there!

When you’ve spent your whole life on three, that’s how it goes. Can’t be too careful right? Well that’s what she says anyhow.

As for me, well I know I can make as good a pack dawg as any. If I were around in the gold rush days I’d be right there with this pup, helping out the sad old miners.

Where’s my pack? I’m ready!

I wish I could stay up here all year. This is my kinda place. But mom and dad are already telling me it’s time to go.

But Mommm, I don’t want to leave!

They said something about going back to Colorado in a few weeks. I’m glad because I like it there. But I also heard them say “When he sees the VET.”  I’ll pretend I didn’t catch on to their ploy.

Keep on truckin’ Tripawds Nation, I hope you are having a good season.

I did NOT hear you say the V word, right?
