Happy 12th birthday to Gilgamesh!

Baby collar still fits:


And while everything’s changing fast now, there are still aspen stands and mountains.



His birthday walk this evening had all his necessary elements for contentment: mountains, nose, and forward-motion with me beside him.


He has given me more pleasure in this world than any weird biped could ever earn or deserve. I’m lucky to know this dog, and for 12 years now, to have participated in his daily joy.
