Here’s a collection of photos from my adventures (so far) in the Pacific Northwest – mostly Washington State. I got a remote gig that allows me some freedom to pick and choose where to live and work and I’ve gotten a bit tired of the arid and fire-prone climate of California so I picked one of the wettest places in the West Coast!

Working at home can get draining and I’m sure a lot of people can now say the same because of the Pandemic. However, having a dog around certainly beats the daily doldrums of remote work. I always wanted a dog – a Golden Retriever or a Labrador in particular but I live in a one-bedroom apartment. I also like to travel and a bigger dog will become more of a hindrance than say a medium-sized dog. So when my birthday came around, I asked my wife for a dwarf version – a Pembroke Welsh Corgi!

I named him Lucky – it seemed like a fitting name because out of the breeder’s litter nobody picked him. He was the last pup in that litter and we’re the lucky ones to get him. Since then, I’ve included the pup in most outdoor adventures I’ve tackled in the Pacific Northwest. He doesn’t let his short legs be his handicap. He can hike just as well as bigger normal legged-dogs :)
