Visitors Take 17

My friends Janelle and Kelly came to the Pacific Northwest for doggy show and Gypsy and were lucky enough to go up and spend some time with them. We went on a pretty hike in the Puget Sound and much enjoyment was had by humans and dog alike.
Gypsy reunited with her puppy mom Janelle. Cute!

dearest meadow

Meadow, just check out this slug we have to offer....seriously gross! This is one of the smaller ones, but they are all over the place and they leave slim trails. Gypsy tries to eat them and searches for them in the grass. I have seen one similar to the yellow banana looking slug you posted and that was also disgusting. Does anyone know if slugs have eyes?Also, another great thing we have to offer are really cool ferry rides. Oh. This has be the most ridiculous ferry crossing known to man! Yesterday we were driving to go see the Spruce Goose (pause for laughter) and while driving we had to deal with this ferry crossing. Tell me, why isn't there just a bridge to get over?!

Close of Summer

Is it officially fall now that it is September? I'm not going to lie, I'm ready for the summer to be over and for the fall colors to start showing up. Last weekend we had our last summer outing and attended a dahlia festival just outside of Portland. I never realized how many different varieties of dahlias there were or even how much I liked them. The rows and rows of flowers were beautiful and I have added a new flower to my list of favorites. Yes, Gypsy (8 months now) goes everywhere with us.
