Hudson Blue, Velcro Pup

Mom, I know we just woke from an 8 hour snuggle session 1/2 hour ago… I want to make sure you don’t forget that I am here… I am DEFINITELY more entertaining than your work 😇. Hi, my name is HUDSON BLUE, and I am an affection junkie!

Hudson Blue, Affection Junkie

My struggle is REAL 😢… Can’t mom see that I am MUCH better looking and MUCH more entertaining than her laptop??? I cannot believe I have to SHARE her lap! I try to tell her, and sometimes she just looks at me and laughs at my barks, while other times she flat out ignores me – especially if she is talking to her boss or colleagues. Today, I even tried to sit right on top of her laptop while she was typing. That didn’t work out very well… Mom put me (and all of the toys that I brought with me onto the sofa) on the floor… Yep… Every. Single. One. I. Own… AND, I have A LOT of toys. I am sooooooo OVER her work thing! Hi, my name is HUDSON BLUE, and I am an affection junkie!

Hudson Blue, Ladies Man

My mom took me to Lake Merritt today. Talk about exciting! I was able to run, Run, RUN, and RUN SOME MORE! It felt so good to really stretch my legs. I even raced my mom a few times. She did an ok job of keeping up 😏… She wasn’t able to navigate the people relaxing in the grass as well as me. I tried my best to drag her right through the middle of their blankets… I know they didn’t mean to forget MY invite to their picnic…

I LOVED showing my mom that I could sit and stay on command – that is until I discovered girls – the two-legged variety. Did you know if you sit pretty for a hot second and then mesmerize them with your eyes, they will hug and kiss all over you??? I loved them so much that I passed up the opportunity to play with other pups – including my cousin, Baby, born 1 month before me at @colorcountryaussies. Truth be told, of all the ladies I met yesterday, @_helenade_ and @earthy.eva were my FAVS 😘.

Hudson Blue

Guess what??? I have a name… I overheard my mom tell the vet that my name is HUDSON BLUE CASHEL WALLACE. Cashel after someone she called The Dude (aka dad), who apparently was a pretty cool cat. I was confused at first because I am a dog not a cat. But after overhearing my mom talk about all of The Dude’s admirable qualities, it all makes sense. GULP… I have some pretty big shoes to fill…

I had my 1st play date, and it was SO MUCH FUN! Although I am much younger than Tipsy, I showed him (and my mom) that I can wrestle with the best of them 😏. I also had my 1st mini adventure exploring the neighborhood in the rain. Lots of smells, sights, and sounds to take in. SO EXCITING! Leaves blowing in the wind are pretty darn cool! Can I just tell you how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE THE OUTDOORS…

I have listened to 2 full days of healthcare tech conference calls… BORING! Yesterday, I found my voice and put my two cents in a few times, trying to tell mom and her colleagues that I am way more interesting but I just got ignored, so I cried. I see my mom try to hide her smirk and look of adoration when I point my nose toward the sky and howl 😏. Wrapping my mom around my paw is a bit tougher than I thought… Although she does allow me to climb up in her lap to take my naps, which I do quite often. It’s all about the snuggle! If only I didn’t have to share with her laptop… Hi, my name is HUDSON, and I am an affection junkie!

New Beginnings

I finally made it to my new home… I am a bit jet-lagged and SOOO incredibly nervous with all these new sights and sounds… I am trying my best to be brave but I am struggling – as evidenced by my photo. It’s the only one I have allowed my new mom to take… That big device is 1/2 my size… SCARY! Plus, I am stressed/about to cry, tired/fighting sleep, and hungry/not wanting to eat…

She bought me all these toys, but for now, I would just rather snuggle in her lap, watching her every move with my bright blue eyes, and kissing her chin every few minutes. Maybe tomorrow I will be brave enough to explore my new surroundings a bit…

My new mom calls me “Baby Boy” and “Pretty Boy”, which is ok for now. But, sheesh, I CANNOT have her call me that around the 4-legged friends I hope to make over the coming weeks.

Will you pls help her out with my name???

Jesus Asked, Mother Nature Answered

Jesus (Nuñez) asked (cool weather, no sun), and Mother Nature answered… Our escape from the almost month long San Francisco heat wave to the Marin Headlands & Green Gulch Zen Center was filled with fog, cool weather, BEAUTIFUL coastal views, and hundreds upon hundreds of VIBRANT flowers. I couldn’t have asked for a better day… Or better peeps to spend it with 😋. Why I LOVE the Bay Area…

UNDENIABLE!

Exploring a few of my favorite trails with a few long-time friends and some newbies… En route to a few of my favorite Marin Headlands spots… Each visit is just as exhilarating as the 1st time and leaves me with a HUGE smile… UNDENIABLE BEAUTY!! Why I LOVE the Bay Area…

Ron, Desmond, Tina, Ann, & Jordan, thanks for contributing to such an INCREDIBLE day!!

Oscar’s Kodak Moment

I was supposed to be learning how to take GREAT sunset and nighttime photos (at one of the premier locations to capture the San Francisco skyline – Treasure Island)… BUT, while waiting for the sun to set and while watching the fog rapidly roll in covering up the sun and most of the skyline, this little rascal, who I aptly named Oscar (after one of my FAV Sesame Street characters), captured my attention. He quickly scampered from some large rocks on the shore to the rubbish bins lining the parking lot. He was scavenging the trash cans for dinner and was NOT HAPPY that I was capturing his binge… I got to see his not-so-pearly whites and hear his not-so-pleasant growl… Not just once… Not just twice… but on three separate occasions 😁… Have no fear, Oscar, dumpster diving is SOOOO not my thing!! However, capturing moments is…😘😘 This must have been his “cheat” day as he opted for junk food (what looked to be fried chicken bones, French fries, and a plastic container of Ranch dressing) instead of the fresh fish, crabs, and whatever else is in the San Francisco Bay. I wonder if I should have tossed some Pepto Bismol, Tums, or some other antacid in the bin????

Special Moments… SF Bay Area… Always

FANTASTIC Saturday exploring the SF coastline w/ friends! There were quite a few special moments we stumbled upon throughout the day – pre-proposal preparations by a young man just above Mike Rock Beach, 4-5 whales frolicking in the waters at Land’s End, and a wedding ceremony at Baker Beach – while we also created a few of our own… The WhatsApp guy… The hordes of men salivating over Cedric’s man toy – his drone – that hopefully caught some great video close ups of the whales… The disappointment of having not packed mojitos in our bags… The glutinous amounts of food we inhaled at Mandalay… Everyone’s laughter is still ringing in my ears 😋. Thank you all for such a great day! 😋 #whyiLOVEthebayarea #iluv2xplore #dreamexplorediscover #naturalbeauty
