…almost like you're along for the ride

My buddy Blue passed away at noon today, May 10th 2016. He was peacefully euthanized as a result of a malignant nasal tumor and it's devastating effects.  
Blue passed away peacefully in my lap today as a result of an aggressive malignant nasal tumor. He was only nine years old. Blue made life Good. He loved our road life. I loved every day we shared together! I miss him beyond words.  more later

This is the latest quadruped robot from Google’s Boston Dynamics group, and the only one in civilian hands. The robot’s lifelike movement catches the attention of a real dog.

I’m certain Blue would take this canine robot on without hesitation. The video reminds me of when Blue was willing to take on a  Bronze Sculpture of a Ringtail Cat on display at Zion National Park’s Visitor Center.  He was ready for a takedown.

Blue continues to patiently watch over me while my seventy year old body recovers from six unexpected surgical procedures over the last six months.  If all goes well, Blue and I will be back in Zion by Autumn. I’m so grateful for all your kind messages and concern.
