Life off the power grid

Ah, so that's how life is off the power grid! Not bad. We took a great drive up the North Fork of the Flathead River to the small town (if you can call it that) of Polebridge. The human has been obsessed with this place since hearing about it a couple years ago. Town life seems to center around the Polebridge Mercantile, perhaps most famous for its bakery. While the baked goods seemed delicious (the human quickly consumed cookies--peanut butter and oatmeal raisin--and a huge cinnamon roll with walnuts), we were more impressed by the canine residents. They have a great scam going: tourists can't resist feeding them! (And there are a lot of tourists as Polebridge hosts an entrance to Glacier National Park.) Buko was almost convinced that life without electricity and running water could be alright. Nah.

I think the bakery sounds pretty good! The dogs I could do without. They look BIG.

We didn't get to go inside, but the bakery smelled incredible. Damn grain-free diet! And those big dogs acted really nonchalant about everything--they'd just sort of mosey around until someone fed them. Better yet, they'd lie there and let people come up to them!

I suspect I may be related to those dogs. That sounds like my day!
