Washington Coast

Sometimes you don’t luck out with the weather living in Washington State.  Yesterdays weather was a dream come true to spend a winter’s day on the coast.  I did just fine wearing only a vest.  Today…not so much.  Gore-tex was essential at Ocean Shores today.  This is the first time I opened the door to my truck and Asia wasn’t eager to get out due to the wind and rain.

Olympic National Park


Olympic National Park

Discovering Washington keeps getting better! Asia and I took a road trip this weekend to our very own Olympic National park. We saw and touched the largest Spruce tree in the world, climbed one heck of a huge Cedar tree and hung out all afternoon at Ruby beach until sunset. For lunch we had a picnic at Lake Quinaunt, so beautiful!

New Gate for boarders

For the past couple of days I’ve been working hard building my first gate to keep your dogs secure and safe here at Dog Trots.  I poured my first bag of concrete for the posts!  The fence is 5 ft. tall and the gate opens and closes without a hitch!  I’m now hooked and building a second one for the other side of the house.  It looks like I have some painting to do in the near future.



I started walking and training Jessie when he was just a pup.  We took a break for a while but now he’s back!  He is such a well behaved dog.  All that training really shows with him.


How can you resist a face like this?!  Fransic is a Frenchie/Pug mix and just joined the group a couple of months ago.  She is really loving all her new friends and getting out in the middle of her day.


It’s always a party with Reno!  Reno is a bouncy Yellow Lab that just loves being in the outdoors.  He is happy-go-lucky and brings a smile to anyone’s face.
