Now This Is Love

Just couldn’t pass this photo opportunity up.  So freaking cute I just want to eat ’em up.

Happy Birthday!

Happy 2nd Birthday to Lau, our ready to play, most fun loving, and cuddly pup!  You are a keeper.

Lau full grown and 70+ pounds; Puppy Lau almost 2 months old and probably 14 pounds.

Thanksgiving in Toledo, Oregon

After a hectic day at work yesterday Jeremy and I got to Toledo, Oregon at 6:30pm after some very slow traffic on I-5.  We took our youngest Lau to the Penters’ where he got to enjoy the span of their property.  I could hardly get him to stay still as he sprinted circles around me.  Looking at this photo now it almost looks like I cropped him into the photo, I’m guessing something about the sunlight.IMGP4293

The funniest part of this trip is that our 70+ pound dog was extremely afraid of the Cocoa the cat.  Generally their cats hide from us but once Cocoa got wind that Lau was terrified Cocoa couldn’t get enough of us!  Hope you are all having a healthy and Happy Thanksgiving for those of you who celebrate.


Armitage Park

Foggy day here in Oregon.  Enjoyed some time at the dog park with my boy Ming.  Few dogs there which was fine because he mostly wants to run circles around me.  IMGP4280

The funny part was watching him try to fit into a 10 gallon bucket of water, unfortunately I didn’t think to snap that photo.  I might have to check out the Crilly Nature Trail next time.

The Cute Thermometer just broke

Home from soccer, reading emails and posting on Facebook I look over to see these two snuggling up.  We’ve been feeling bad for our cat Sensei lately because her sister Katara does not seem to want to come inside much at all recently (it couldn’t be the 4 dogs now could it?).  But seeing these two, well I’d say she’s found herself a sweetheart.

With my macro lens, the noise woke her up.

Afternoon at Fall Creek

My sister wanted to get to the water so we decided to take a drive to Fall Creek today with my dog Loki.  Luke warm water today with a high of 87 there were a few boats out; other than one family gathering we were on our own for the most part.

Fall Creek is an unincorporated community southeast of Springfield/Eugene.  In 2000 there were only 1553 people living there.  Not sure there’s any more than that.

Fall Creek has spots for boats, camping, picnics, hikes, and appears dog friendly.  At least Loki thought so.

All in all a relaxing afternoon with my sister and our guy Loki, enjoying the Oregon summer.

Always up for an adventure.
