Yesterday marked the five year anniversary since I adopted him. Wow! I can’t believe how fast time has gone.
Matty K, Rider and I went up to Arctic Valley right outside of Anchorage on Saturday and Sunday for a little backcountry splitboarding and I think Rider had the most fun. It is pretty stinkin’ cute to watch him romp around in the snow (face plowing himself into fresh powder) with his little booties on. I have bought over six pairs of booties for him and he always seems to lose one in the deep snow. This weekend Matty used duct tape over the velcro and those bad boys stayed on for the whole day. Go Matty! The three of us had a blast and were pretty pooped by the end of the day. Rider was pooped for the entire next day. The video below is where he lay all day (on his anniversary).
Last night Matty said to me, “I love him so much my heart is going to be explode.” (Or something close to that.) My heart melted a little bit when I heard him say that. Yep, it’s official, we adopted Rider and he stole our hearts.
