Birthday weekend videos to capture more #dogjoy ! So I'm 3. I still love swimming, chasing balls, I'm not always good with other dogs but I love most humans and really like babies (sticky hands.) I've become a good snuggler when before I'd give you at most 3 minutes for hugs. I'm still up for any adventures because I'm happiest at your side, in a car, plane, boat, on foot, it doesn't matter. I'm your best travel buddy and I'm super smart in figuring out paths to get back to any treats that have ever been given. I am a small fluffer nugget with so many licks and so much love to give. #iloveyougivemetreats#bestdog#love
New friends and butt rubs make for a pretty great trip. Think I’m getting the hang of this crag dog life. #adventurepup

3 of my favorite things (in order). @daniellehgale , our puppy, and rock climbing. Today was great day to escape the stress of moving into a new place as well as the heat of Vegas. Turns out there's good climbing in the summertime in Vegas!

This week as part of the #alpinistcommunityproject , we're sharing work from cartoonist and writer Tami Knight. Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Knight grew up steeped in adventure; as a kid, she dreamed of playing around on top of the Squamish chief, and using the huge granite apron as a 1,000-foot playground slide. Knight competed as an elite gymnast through college, and graduated from Art School in 1983. It was around that same time that she first began the climbing cartoons that have made her sense of humor famous in the climbing community today. During the late 1970s and 1980s Tami Knight climbed regularly at Squamish, an area that she profiled for Alpinist in Issue 43. She’s the author of six volumes of climbing comics with her latest publication in the anthology "Waymaking" (Vertebrate Press, UK, October 2018) and she’s been contributing to Alpinist since Issue 1. .

I love dogs so much. I grew up with several during my childhood and really really wish I had one of my own now. But living on the road in a very small space and often being out for entire day(s), sometimes in the middle of a sweltering desert or freezing mountains or no-dogs-allowed national park - plus many spontaneous non-van travels - means I haven’t had the time and resources to devote to training and caring for a pup by myself. One day soon though, I will have my own floofy sidekick (in my daydreams, a gigantic Bernese mountain dog). And I will love them oh so much. And I will name them after characters from my favorite book. (Irulan or Duncan; guess the book?) In the meantime, pls let me borrow your dog/cat/critter, and I will give it allllll the pets and squees 😍
