Christmas Tree Cutting Adventures

Today we went on an adventure to get our Christmas tree! We are fortunate that Jon is friends with people who own a Christmas tree farm. They host a party every year and serve hot dogs, hot chocolate, and there are LOTS of yummy cookies brought by all of the guests.

Oh, also they let you find and cut down your own tree!

We bring Ellie because they have a giant yard and it's great for her to run around. A few other people bring their dogs, so it's a great time for everyone.

We found our tree and one for Jon's parents, and as we (he) was tying the trees to the car, I watched in amusement as Ellie chased her new doggy friend Max around the yard. They went nonstop!
The rest is pictures and video, enjoy!

Wordless Wednesday: Lap Dog

Ellie will do anything she can to sit on my lap. At one point, her butt was on my shoulder (parrot?). Her DNA test did have remnants of Pug in it...

Mallards in Ballard

I love how Mallard ducks can always be found in pairs. Little Mr. and Mrs. Quack waddling around town together. It restores my faith in love and amazes me that it can occur in nature like this.

Spongebob Stalks Ellie

I was just going through some videos and found this one of Ellie attacking a mylar balloon of Spongebob that I never posted up! Watch the ending where he follows her... lol.

Enjoying Fall Sun

Remember that walk I told you about yesterday? Well we went on it again today, but this time my friend Benny came with!

It was sunny and nice outside. I got to meet a dog named Izzy, and later these two Yorkies chased us down the street barking. I really wanted to say hi to them but mom made me keep walking.

Time for me to sprawl out on the floor for a nap!

Bridges and Leaves

Me and mom have been bad bloggers lately. Her, because she gets caught up in other stuff and doesn't write in our blog, and me because, well, because mom gets caught up in other stuff and doesn't let me on the computer!!

Anyway, last week we had a lot of sunny days, so mom and Goldie's mom (remember my friend Goldie?) decided to take us doggies on a looooong walk during the middle of work. We are so lucky because we got to do it 3 days in a row!! Mom said it was 4 miles long, I dunno what that means, but it was long!

It was fun spending time with my best friend Goldie and I go to sniff a lot and see a couple of squirrels (SQUIRREL!).

Mom is making me upload these pictures.

Dog & Cat Gift Exchange


My coworker just e-mailed me a link to this gift exchange for the holiday season and I wanted to share!

You just sign up your pet (you must sign up multiple times for multiple pets) then you get matched up with someone and you send their pet a gift under $10 and your pet will receive a gift in the mail! It's always fun to get stuff in the mail, so why not?
