Sunny January

We enjoyed a sunny, 63 degree day here in Seattle.  Happy hour was a treat outside on our patio after a day of working in the yard.

We made our annual trek down to Arizona for the holidays. We rented a van so we can take some stuff down and bring some things back. I was so excited that I wouldn't get out of the van while Mom was packing. I also had a great seat in a nice chair for the ride back!

I'm actually in the van here!

In Arizona, I got to spend Christmas with my Grandma Jary and Grandpa Dale. I also spent time with my cousins Paige and Idol. What a great time with pretty special people!


We had a beautiful fall here. One of the things I like about our new place is that we can walk down to Alki Beach. There are coffee shops, restaurants, beach volleyball, and of course, lots of dogs down there.

We took a trip to Boise .  . . one of our new favorite places and very dog friendly. Lots of sun, walking trails and good restaurants with outdoor seating for me.

My newest cousins, Camden and Kylee turned one in November. My Uncle Rodney and Aunt Kristi dressed them up as old people for Halloween! I was skeleton again for my Mom's office party.


One of the reasons that I haven't been writing, is that we moved in June!  I really miss running upstairs to see Grandma Yvonne and miss our walks, but the new (old - 1957) house is pretty nice and I have a lot more room. We've been busy doing a lot of work on it. I've been managing the contractors that keep coming and going while my folks are at work. New roof . . . new windows . . . new heating . . . new tile and carpet. I am exhausted!

We're almost finished with what we can do now.  Avocado carpeting is being replaced in a couple weeks. I can't wait. I roll around trying to scratch my back and get green fuzz all over me.
It has quite a nice view of the Sound and the mountains and the sunsets are spectacular. I just love how I can see out the windows so no one can sneak up on us.

The best feature though is our new neighbors!  My family has a penchant for finding good neighbors. Renata and Yanka often invite me over. I just love them.

Catching Up

Since I have had many people wondering about my status since I haven't blogged in a while, I thought I'd put the paws to the keyboard and provide some updates to all my friends. A special thanks to Darcy who got me motivated to write again thanks to a link to a another dog's blog. I couldn't be one-upped by a Dachshund!
