Life’s a pawty

pawsWe all remember the summer of 2014. Hot and dry defined both the days and the nights.

It was the summer Bogey Nelson turned 5 and a gaggle of Chemeketa dogs joined him at Minto Brown dog park to celebrate his birthday.

Bogey greeted his guests with a shake of the paw and a quick sprint around the area.

I can only imagine how his paws felt in the dry grass after spending the weekend on a golf course with rich, green grass. Yes, Bogey is a veteran of the golf course scoring his momma good luck when he accompanies her.

The dictionary defines bogey as either “one score over par on the golf course” or in World War II, it was an “unidentified aircraft.” You be the judge.
