Because I live here, I can mess around half the day and then jump in the car and head north and quickly be in the mountains where I can grill out under the trees with the dogs and friends. Sounds like fun unless it is really hot outside, and you are a little dog that needs lots of water and grilled hot dogs. Did I say “hot dogs?!”

Yep, if you grill out under the tree you had better have “hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, and Coca Cola!

And if you are a little dog, you can ‘t help but wonder how “your people” can just hang out reading and sleeping the afternoon away while¬† other people grilling all around you. In fact, how can anyone relax when your own grill is hot and food is cooking?!
