Yay it’s Friday! We decided to go on a little afternoon bike ride on this unusually hot September day; it’s 84 in Seattle… That’s madness!
We used our “new” (yard sale find!!) bike trailer, strapped Basil in like he was a 5 year old human child and we were off.
The ride wasn’t very long because of the heat but we still had an awesome time. I can’t wait until it’s actually fall here so we can use this sweet ride more often. Check out the video I shot and also my ridiculous bike selfie!
Thanks YouTuber Jenna Marbles for this idea. We are having a ton of fun with it!
Happy wordless (wordy, whatever!) Wednesday guys! Hope everyone had an amazing unofficial last weekend of summer. We were pretty lazy! Basil, Willow, Sebastian, Nate, and myself spent the weekend relaxing and getting settled into our new house. Now that the work week is in full swing its been hard not to be our lazy weekend selves.
This morning I was able to catch something on video that has eluded me. No, its not the Loch ness monster or big foot, even though you would think it was with how hard its been to capture it. It’s a video of Basil and Sebastian playing under our coffee table!
Usually they start playing and I reach for the camera but the second I point it in their direction all movement stops. You would think these two were professional mimes or something!
That didn’t happen today! Enjoy this video because I don’t know when I’ll be able to get another one!
Coming at the end of the week is our FreshPet Vital Raw review and a few photos of Basil’s new “dog cave” in the new house. Make sure to check back for those!
Do you have cats & dogs? Do they love to play with each other?
