Jack O Lanterns. Pumpkin Carving. Grinning Jacks. I don’t care what you call them, I just love doing it each year! This year we picked up over a 1,000lbs of pumpkins and I’m not even kidding.

It is with a heavy heart that we announce we had to say good-bye to Fergus on August 1st. Fergus was struggling with heart failure and had also recently been diagnosed with renal failure.

So this weekend Chris and I drove down to Mount Rainier National Park and stayed at the Cedar Creek Treehouse, a tree house that’s 50 feet up in a tree. It was awesome! The tree house itself is three levels. There’s a sitting/patio area that has a hammock and is open for the most part. […]Read More Mount Rainier/Cedar Creek Treehouse

It’s been a while since we’ve had an update on Fergus. I can say he’s doing so amazingly well that I can’t even believe it. He’s settled right into our household like he’s been here for years. His eye is looking so much better, his fur is literally soft and supple and his mobility has […]Read More Sir Fergus Of Bravo Update!
If you know me at all, you know that I *hate* yard work. I can and will do laundry all day long but I just can’t get down with the yard stuff. I’m dedicating the whole weekend to getting it done. Here’s the shameful before photo: And to console myself, I cut some lilacs and […]Read More Garden Stuff (& day 47!)
I pulled out the kiddie pool for the dogs for the first time this year today. Well, only Patrick and Dash really like to splash around in it but the other dogs will drink out of it. Haha! Bib B used to enjoy it but Minnie and Joxer are less than impressed. While the Boxers […]Read More Kiddie Pool Time!
I decided at the last minute to dye some eggs. I forgot to pick up one of those kits so I just used food coloring, a little vinegar and some boiling water. I let myself have a lot of fun editing these photos so bear with me. 😀Read More Technicolor Eggs (& day 83!)
Several weeks ago Julie Austin came over to get home photos of Big B and I. She was also kind enough to take pics of rest of my motley crew. These were all taken in my front and back yards with natural light. You should check out the photos on Julie’s site…they are amazing! http://www.jaustinphotography.com/Read More Julie Austin Doggie Photo Shoot
I think I’ve avoided posting this because I’m just not wanting to deal with it. I’m angry and adrift and yes, a bit depressed but mostly I’m deeply and profoundly sad. Fuck cancer. Big B has been my best friend since the day he entered our lives. He’s been my protector, my doughnut and […]Read More Buford T. Justice And Adenocarcinoma

Ok, so normally I don’t sweat the snow too much. I grew up in New Hampshire and learned how to drive in the stuff. We’ve have gotten a *lot* of snow for the Seattle area. It’s been snowing off and on since Saturday afternoon but we got dumped on today and are supposed to get […]Read More Snowmageddon January, 2012
