    In order: Reece unknowingly leaving Salem,Or. for his new life in Kirkland. First day home...tummy rub. Wasn't easy catching him flying with his first...and still favorite toy! I grew up with Golden Retrievers & had a few of my own. This is our 2nd. Mini Schnauzer and he has the personality & spirit of the best of them...just turned 4! PS I screwed the pooch ( so to speak) on the order of the pics!

    We had a tough decision to put Mugz our pit/retriever mix down a few weeks ago. It was the right choice but still very painful.

    We weren't even thinking of a new dog, but a friend of my wife's has a dog they are looking to place with the right family.

    Lucy seems like a great dog, but is apparently a bit too energetic for them having very young children. That's not a problem for us and we're really starting to like her (it's her 2nd visit today). Hoping some that is left over puppy energy since she's only 2.

    She's an interesting mix of Rhodesian Ridgeback, Vizla, and Lab. I love labs, but know very little about the other two breeds. Anyone have experience or thoughts on them?

    She's a very sweet and happy dog.

    Looks like she could get to the center of a tootsie pop pretty quickly with that tongue.

    Sorry for your loss. That's always tough.

    Our rescues have settled in pretty well. I hope Lucy settles in and becomes a new part of your family as well.

    Thanks. She's definitely a licker, and a leaner. Was kinda tough dropping her off tonight. We've got some mulling to do but pretty sure she's gonna be a WFF dog. I'm told she loves water so possibly a fishing buddy too.

    Oh man, so sorry for your loss... it always just flat out sucks.

    Lucy looks damn happy!

    Do I smell a dog rondi coming?

    Finally Campbell is back to his normal self after 2 surgeries lasting nearly 9 months. We took him to go see his sister on the weekend and they got to swim in the ocean at the cabin for hours. Although they are family, he date not get between his sister and a stick Here he is just relaxing in his usual style as he dries off. Nice to finally be able to throw a stick or a frisbee for him again[​IMG]

    Out for a hot hike to Baldy peak in the Olympics yesterday. She's a tiny little beast. About 4200 vertical feet of climbing in 3.5 miles on the way up!
