The other day a friend took us to Benson Marina to go slaloming. Basically water skiing using a single ski designed so the feet are secured one behind the other.
The other day we took our new raft and spot over to Porcupine Reservoir for the day. Spot loves the water but has always been too afraid to actually swim. We decided it was time that he learn so with a doggie life vest and our coaxing we gave him his first swimming lessons. The life vest is for our rafting trips but not because he needs it swimming.
A little while back I headed to Park City to visit friends before they headed down south for the winter. Park City is always such a nice break from Cache Valley and I’m definitely sad to see them go. I Tagged along for a few hours as they finished up some loose ends with their horses.
There was some freeze branding going on with was fun to see. And No..It does not hurt the horses.
Of course I found the pile of puppies to keep me entertained while everyone else worked! Here is Lilly.
My favorite photo of the moment! (Even if Matt calls it a “butt shot”)
And the day wouldn’t have been complete without visiting with the baby
I’m back after a week long hiatus. The last week was… somewhat busy? Or maybe I was just lazy about posting. Over the weekend Matt was determined to get out of the house and do something. We decided to head out on a little adventure Sunday to the Uinta Mountains. It was a fun 3 hour drive there that took us through Wyoming before crossing back into Utah. The Unitas were amazing! Fall has already sprung there and all the aspens were an assortment of bright yellows and oranges.
At the top of the mountains are a bunch of lakes lining the road. We walked around a few of them.
Of course the water was Spots favorite part of the trip!
We headed down the mountains to Kamas and stopped at a lovely Nudist Colony…. JK.. but we definitely saw signs for one
I’m excited to take more fall foliage photos!
Now it’s off to walk the monster and possibly get some shots for this Friday.
It’s Doggie Love Friday! I need a slap on the wrist for not posting more this week but there is no way I would miss posting on Spot’s day. Today will be photos of all the good times Spot had on vacation in Oregon. He had a blast and loved every minute of it! He wanted his photo taken at every fun place we went to. Here he is at the Astoria Lighthouse and again at Multnoma Falls.
Spot was absolutely enamored with the beach and ocean. He loved the sand, water, waves, seagulls, smells, and all the other dogs running around.
Here we think he looks like a little sea creature jumping up to snag a unsuspecting bird.
Look Ma, Friends!
Spot is a pretty athletic dog except when it comes to catching a ball. He sure tries hard though.
He had a blast imitating others. Here his is in his diving pose.
And again imitating a seal.
And stalking some seagulls on the cliffs of Cape Lookout.
Hey Look! I see some! I’m gonna get you!
I could stay here forever! Why don’t we live on the beach?
Holy Jeepers that was a lot of photos. I think Spot was a bit disappointed when the fun ended and we headed back home. He’s already excited for next year’s vacation. Oh where to go?
We spent the past few days exploring the Oregon coast which neither of us have ever been to before. We drove through Portland and then down the coast while stopping at various points on the way to Newport. Oregon was pretty but a lot colder than I was expecting in the middle of August! The ocean was freezing so we just walked through the shallow areas instead of full on swimming. The beaches were great! We found a lot of hidden gems along the way that didn’t have a lot of other people there. I didn’t take as many photos as I normally do on trips but here are a few.
We thought long and hard about whether to bring along Spot for vacation. Since we figured we’d be spending most of the time outdoors, we decided he should come. I’m glad we did because Spot LOVED the beach and ocean and it was a lot of fun to watch him jump through the waves are play in the sand. I’m sure he’s happy he came too.
