The agility of cats amazes me. Luna weighs only 7lbs but can jump up to a 6 foot fence with no effort. It's a sight to see her little body seemingly levitate up to the fence top! Her afternoons are typically spent napping on the fence, watching nearby birds and squirrels.
💐🦊 A fox is a wolf who sends flowers. This is my absolute favorite photo of Kato. We were on our way home from lure coursing, in farm country. The single lane road was lined with dense pines when the trees suddenly opened to abandoned fields of these yellow flowering bushes. We pulled over and took a few photos (public land) before continuing on our way. I have noticed these yellow bushes along the highway over the past month. Each time I thought how much I wanted to photograph a field of them. I feel so fortunate my vision came true!
The only kind of 🐻 I like to see is the grass kind. July has yet to feel like summer. Seattle has been overcast, wet, and a bit chilly. The gloomy days feel long and uneventful. We were fortunate enough to catch a quick break in the clouds on Saturday, literally about a 5 minute timeframe at the summit. We soaked up as much of the scene as possible before getting resocked (is that a word?) then deciding to run back to the trailhead. Tips for trail running? My shins, quads, and gluts are still in recovery mode four days later! 😅
Kato and Ellie are always a few steps ahead and they've little patience for slow moving two-leggers struggling up hill. Can you see it in their faces? 🤣
CAMPING SEASON IS HERE! We head out this afternoon for a weekend up North. I had nearly everything packed last night when my girl, @girlmeetsmerle, messaged "sooo we're bringing a boat". I did a quick look at trails in the area, determined they were a bit too unstable with melting snow, then started unpacking. What was going to be a hiking weekend quickly turned into a weekend of chilling on the lake. I'm pretty sure it's just what I need anyway! Since I was unpacking/repacking, I had a little fun with our gear! Here's what we're taking this weekend. --- 🏕️ @marmot 3-person tent 💤 @keltybuilt 2-person sleeping bag 🛌 @klymit 2-person sleeping pad 🧘🏻♀️ @mountainstandard & @mountainsmith chairs 🔥 @msr_gear camp stove 🍜 @backpackerspantry pad thai meals 🌳 @tribeprovisions hammock 🥾 @chacofootwear - no toe strap this time! 🧢 @gigipip, @buff_usa & @outdoorresearch hats 🕶️ @rayban sunnies ☕ @bulletproof cold brew 🍻 @10barrelbrewing brewskies 🎒 @seatosummitgear dry sacks 🥤 @hydroflask water bottles 🚑 @hartoutdoor first aid kit 🛠️ @leathermantools multitool 🍫 @tuckersraw meal bars 💦 @ruffwear dog bowl and tie-out ✨ @austinandkat CBD treats & oils 🦟 @wondercide natural bug repellent 🌬️ @icemulecoolers pack for @swellgelatofordogs treats 💎 @wildwearpets collars & @metalhounds tags 🎽 @firstname.lastname@example.org dog life vests ⛺ @alcottgear dog tent/camping kennel 🔵 @whyld_river dog sleeping bag Not pictured but equally vital: ❄️ @yeti tundra cooler 🛶 Inflatable kayaks 🚤 BOAT
Adventures with my two cheetos and @girlmeetsmerle two floofs are never dull! These four are all very different dogs but they clearly communicate intentions while also listening to one another. . 🐹 Ellie is typically the fun police but in this group she is a happy-go-lucky pup who settles well 🦊 Kato actually is the same doggo per usual. He plays fetch & catch solo, he naps solo, and he makes dinosaur noises solo 🦝 Marley, she is the fun stopper. She ensures nobody is zooming near her or the humans. Give her a little booty scratch though and she'll be your bestie 🦁 Cooper is the silly boy who just wants everyone else to play.
Wondering where we've been recently? Literally our life rn. On Friday we moved into a new house. Everyone is finally settling in but I anticipate we'll be living out of boxes for the next month. And now that we're moved in.... Time to prep for our July 4th camp trip! 😅 #cantstopwontstop
Congratulations to @ailo_ask, you are our winner this time!! ❤️ - If you like dog gear but don't believe in luck, go spend your money at @wildwearpets and use our code GREMLIN for a discount. #noregrets 😘
When it comes to camp chairs, "move your feet; lose your seat" is Kato's motto. We'll be head out on another short trip over July 4th. Kato can't be bothered by fireworks but Ellie thinks the world is ending. Remember to keep your pets safe around this holiday and don't forget about the days leading up to and after!
Boating 101 brought to you by Kato. 1. Always wear a hat to protect against sun exposure. It will get windy so make sure the hat has chin straps. Tighten chin strap 100%. 2. Don't allow a Gremlin to Captain. Gremlins get sleepy in the sun. You'll find your Captain abandoned duty to nest in a pile of life vests. 3. Act cool. You're on a boat!
Our new neighborhood has quickly stolen my heart. It's the perfect mix of city walkability while maintaining a quiet, rural feel. We've been taking each evening to walk around, finding nearby parks and dozens of walking trails. Our neighbors are friendly, dog owners respect space, and Ellie is at an all-time relaxed state. While moving on such short notice was stressful, we've settled in really nicely! --- Kato is wearing a collar from the @loveyourmelon NEW Dog Collar collection! I love the quality of their apparel and their mission to help children battling cancer. This is the first time #loveyourmelon has launched a pet product and I hope it's not the last! 💕
Over the last two months, we've been car camping to test the waters of overnight stays. The dogs and humans have been perfect on these trips so we're now planning summer backpack trips! I'm beyond excited to take our love for the outdoors to a new place while achieving more solitude. But first... Cutting pack weight with the proper gear. What are your backpacking 'must-haves'?
🦊 Or 🐶? . Thanks to @embarkvet, we determined Kato is 100% dweeb. Kidding, he's a Shiba. @embarkvet now has a Breed only ID kit available! The kit is an affordable $129 and comes with the option to upgrade to receive health results at any time. Visit the link in my bio for more info! Congrats to @manic.mara for winning our kit giveaway! 💕
When the hike up is grueling, you find creative ways down! The dogs were SO stoked to chase us sliding down that we climbed back up to do it again. Lots of weird looks from passersby but it didn't matter because we couldn't stop having the BEST time.
What looks like an adorable friendship is more a mutual understanding. Both Kato and Luna have large personal space bubbles when it comes to being around one another. They get along great and even play at times but when it comes to laying down to relax, both prefer not to be touching. I was quite surprised to catch them sharing a chair while I worked in the yard! They spent a few minutes together tracking an ant on the deck.
It didn't take long for Luna to discover the tree house. Now she spends her afternoons high above the ground; cat-napping in sun spots and chasing little flies.
When it's Tuesday but it's your Monday which is also kinda Wednesday since you're taking Friday off. Ya feel me? #imjustgoingtositherepretendingiknowwhatsgoingon
In 2018 I took next to no personal time off. Crazy right? I generally enjoy my job so I immerse myself in projects which makes the year fly by. This year I've made it a priority to spend a little less time focusing on my career and a lot more time creating memories with my little fam. I've found camping reservations an easy way to take just one day off while spending a few nights disconnecting. Since you make reservations months in advance, we've been able to plan quite seamlessly for two trips. It's been a wonderful change in pace and we're only in June! The summer holds many more opportunities for us! And now, we're headed north for a few days with no cell signal. Happy camping and have a great weekend! --- Entry for the camping prize for #dogventures2019 hosted by @mochathetoller @thegolden_nimbus @just_thori_things @thenortherndogs @ollie.explores
It took nearly an hour to make it up the scramble and only 10 minutes for the clouds to roll in. Our snack break turned into a quick nap session for both dogs before we made our way out. I guess those scrambles really burn their energy!
