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?!
