A Little Taste of Nature

It’s been a busy January so I haven’t been able to put pen to paper (fingers to computer?) for my blog as often as I might have liked. Fortunately, I have been able to soak up some of California’s wonderful weather and take a few hikes outside with Buddy.

I thought I’d share some of my favorite Instagram photos from my time in the golden hills of California.

A + B

A + B

a couple of weeks ago I took Buddy on his first doggie playdate. it was really MY playdate with my oldest / bestest (it’s totally a word) friend Chelsea. we decided that since we were hanging out we might as well let the mutts do their thing too!

anywhoo, just thought I’d share the picture of Andy (Chelsea’s Briard) and Buddy (my golden retriever) — thus the “A + B” title of this post.

the boys became fast friends and were romping around the yard like THEY had been the ones hanging out since the 4th grade! too funny.

side note, do you see how dwarf-like Buddy looks by comparison to Andy. Briards can be HUGE, but they are such gentle giants.

Obsession of the Week | Buddy

well blogging world, my obsession of the week is my newest family member: Buddy.

Buddy is blonde, has brown eyes, and is fluffy all over.

Yes, that’s right Buddy is a golden retriever.

Originally Buddy came from a Los Angeles animal shelter, but I got him from Homeward Bound Golden Retriever in Elverta.  He also had a strange name: Isis — obviously that had to go.


it seemed like fate that Buddy and I came together yesterday for two reasons:

1) Homeward Bound was one of my favorite movies as a kid, which had a golden retriever  in it (his name was Shadow — and he was precious)

2) August 26th (yesterday) is National Dog Day.

What are the odds? It was like the stars aligned.

So Buddy has officially won the best ‘Obsession of the Week’ award. Here are some photos for you to oogle at :)
