Daisy’s First Camping Trip

There will be pee. Suzanne and Ryan introduced us to the campgrounds at Samuel P. Taylor State Park in Marin County. As always, we had a fantastic food spread on our picnic table. Also, this was Daisy’s first camping trip.

Stay Daisy Stay

Lake Elizabeth has plenty of beautiful spots for photos. I spotted a field of daisies and thought of my dog. It should have been a quick shot with Daisy and the flowers. But this is my dog. It was a bit of an ordeal. First – I needed her to face the camera. Mark held […]

More Daisy Loving….

Why do we produce this little quicktime movies about my dog? Because she’s our baby. We’re still looking for a Halloween costume for her. I think she’d look cute as Princess Leia.

Photo Sunday: Fall

It felt like Fall. We explored Lake Murray with Daisy yesterday. A slight breeze rippled across the water. Hawks cruised over us. My entry for this week’s Photo Sunday: Fall.

Travel Theme: Dogs

It’s a dog’s world. Labor Day walk with Daisy at Batiquitos Lagoon. I melted when my hubby texted me this photo of our dog last week. I couldn’t wait to see her after her retreat/spa vacation in La Jolla.

Blackout Curtains

I used to wake up in darkness. I spent more than eight years getting out of bed with blackout curtains draped over our bedroom windows. They were necessary.
