We’ve expanded our family

I’ve been neglecting this blog for a while, but we’re so excited about the latest news that I had to get back to it.

Five months after losing Schooner we felt we were dogless long enough. We decided to adopt a rescue dog, but after visiting several humane societies and rescue groups we just couldn’t find a suitable dog. So we broke down, went to a breeder and adopted/bought a 3 month old black Labradoodle. We’ve had him for only one night so far and of course he cried most of the night in his kennel. It was tempting to bring him to bed with us but that’s not what one is supposed to do, so we didn’t. Hope tonight goes better.

What I’ve learned about black dogs is that they’re very hard to photograph. All the still photos I’ve taken of him just look like a black blob and don’t show off his cuteness. This Youtube video is a little better, but not great. http://youtu.be/tOizAT8lK-I

Friday Harbor C-Dory gathering

On the boating front we recently came back from a C-Dory owners rally in Friday Harbor, WA. Was great meeting a nice group of people and learned a lot. We drove there rather than taking the boat as we don’t yet have a towing vehicle. Up until now we’ve only been able to travel up and down the Columbia and Willamette Rivers which has been somewhat limiting. I have an appointment tomorrow to look at a 2005 Chevy Suburban with an 8 liter V8 which should be adequate to tow our 8500 lb boat and trailer combo.

I hope to display some more dog photos as soon as I figure out the proper exposure.
