A Glorious Fall Hike

Posted by: Steph on September 11th, 2011

Somehow it seems fitting to have spent this day hiking in the mountains. Tyge, Echo, and I reveled in the glorious Arctic Valley Fall. We climbed up to Clementine’s Geocache which was placed 6 years ago this month. After visiting the cache, we continued up to the Saddle, further up to Rendezvous Peak, and then […]

Echo’s Bad Trip on Amanita muscaria

Posted by: Steph on August 3rd, 2011

As regular readers (all five of you) of the Slat Rat Chronicles know, Echo is vigorously omnivorous. She’ll eat anything, anytime, anywhere. Socks, shoes, food, etc. Her name really should have been “Hoover”. On Monday, she reached new heights, literally.
Echo, Tyge, and I went for a late lunch walk in the pouring rain. At one […]

The Little Bug and Her Pig

Posted by: Steph on April 26th, 2011

Echo aka The Little Bug, gnawing on her new pig. This pig is pretty big and tough - it’s lasted quite a bit longer than any of her other stuffed toys.
I think this picture is adorable:

10th Annual Westchester Lagoon Ice Classic

Posted by: Steph on April 22nd, 2011

Peter, Tyge and Echo at the Lagoon on Saturday April 16th
Holy Cow! Is this really the 10th Westchester Lagoon Ice Classic??!! Wow. This means, the first time we did this, I was 43 as opposed to 52. That was eons and eons and eons ago!
We’re in the last third of April! Normally, at this time […]

Echo is Two Years Old!!!!

Posted by: Steph on March 11th, 2011

The E-Dog turned two yesterday. Celebration all around - except for perhaps by Tygey. Although secretly, deep down, Tyge actually loves Echo. He just doesn’t like to admit it.
The Little Bug is now a full grown pooch. Although, I think she’ll always be a puppy in my mind. That might be the result of the […]

Spring has Sprung!

Posted by: Steph on March 8th, 2011

In Alaska, Spring is defined as warm bluebird days made for frolicking in the snow. Tyge, Echo, and I took advantage of an awesome lunch hour to zoom around on the Lagoon. Speaking of the Lagoon, we probably have another five weeks before we kick off the Westchester Lagoon Ice Classic. Afterall, this is Alaska […]

Glorious Alaskan Winter Day

Posted by: Steph on February 4th, 2011

Today was spectacular and bright! And the sun had actual warmth! We’ve definitely emerged from January’s dark and cold.
The poochies and I celebrated by a walk on the Lagoon. The romped, played, and unfortunately, feasted on moose droppings.
The noble Tyge!

Yum!!!! Moose Nuggets!!!!

9th Annual Westchester Lagoon Ice Classic!

Posted by: Steph on April 18th, 2010

Tyge and Echo at the Lagoon on Tuesday April 13th
It’s April! We’re deep in the midst of Breakup. Eau de Dog Poop permeates the air. Dust, grit, mud, slush, and cruddy snow are everywhere. Cars are unrecognizable mud bombs.
All of this can mean only one thing! It’s time for the Westchester Lagoon Ice Classic!
It’s time […]

Echo’s Big Weekend

Posted by: Steph on April 14th, 2010

Echo had quite the weekend. After a month of stellar behavior, Echo fell off the wagon. Friday, she snagged and destroyed a full box of kleenex and the contents of a trash can. Saturday she rested - gearing up for Sunday. Sunday she reduced a wooden spoon to splinters, munched on a running shoe insole, […]

Weekend Hanging Out

Posted by: Steph on April 11th, 2010

Mid-April in Anchorage can be sunny and beautiful. But more often, at best, it’s grey and blah. That would describe this weekend. Which in a way is a good thing: it is after all Tax Weekend. It’s a lot easier to stay inside and work on taxes if the weather is cruddy.
Of course, we […]
