Road Trip! part 2

Hi everyone!
Well, here we are again...road trip part 2!

After lunch we left Leavenworth and headed towards home. It is a lovely drive home through snow covered mountains.

We even had a rest stop! The girls are kind of naughty so they really have to be leashed if we are stopping just a short time. Also with the freeway so close, I worry about them running off and into the road. Ollie is a daddy's boy so he just comes as soon as hubby calls for him.

All in all, it was a very nice day. I really love Washington, it's so scenic and everything is fairly close. Within just a few hours we have spectacular mountains, ocean beaches and foreign countries. Come on over and visit someday!

On a sad note, we have been following the plight of some puppy mill dogs. In the past few weeks there have been at least three large puppy mill arrests and rescues in a nearby town. The local rescue groups are overwhelmed with doggies needing help. There have been nearly 700 dogs rescued and most of them are pregnant. The shelters are anticipating 1,500 puppies in the upcoming weeks. They are in poor condition and need tons of medical and dental care to help them get to a adoptable state. If you can make any kind of donation to help these pups, please look here at the Everett Animal Shelter.

hugs to you and yours,


  1. That is a very beautiful area you where in. Mom visited her brother in Hood River once. She went to Washington just to say she'd been.
    The puppy mill story made mom sad. She wishes she had lots of green papers to help them all.

  3. Washington is beautiful!!

    I am so sad to hear about the puppy mills. All I really have to give right now are prayers... but I am definitely sending those.

  4. Oh, those mountains are beautiful (but not as beautiful as Ollie!) Here in flat Illinois, I really envy your driving among the mountains.

    OLLIE! Don't get lost!

  5. Hi Puglette
    I had to write and tell you that mom is taking a whole bag of towels to work tomorrow to be sent to the shelter where all those puppies and doggie are. She also heard the story on the tv news! bad people!
    I loved reading about your trip
