P.s Voting is not closed for Basil’s 2015 Halloween costume. The votes have been counted and we do have a winner, but we aren’t telling! Make sure to check back daily and on Halloween to see what won.

Right off the vine! Pumpkin Picking!

Yesterday we put on our boots and headed to our favorite pumpkin patch, The Nursery at Mount Si. With the clouds looming and the smell of rain in the air, we were pretty much playing with fire.

The rain managed to hold off (Seriously, we missed it by moments!) and we were able to pick out some great pumpkins. Check out our photos and if you are in or around the Seattle area check out The Nursery at Mount Si, worth the trip!

After a long cross country move and a crazy family vacation, we are finally getting back to the swing of things. I’ll be back to posting about our adventures and just the the silly things that happen in the life of Basil, Willow, and Sebastian on a daily basis.

Our first official post back will be a Make it Monday. I have a few ideas in the works but if you have something you really want me to try let me know in the comments.

Until then make sure your following us on Instagram (http://www.instagram.com/basilstravels) for even more Boston terrier fun!

Thanks everyone for sticking around through this little hiatus. We all really appreciate you!!

Rainy weekend can’t hold us down! 

It was another Boston Terriers of Charlotte meet up but it was also another rainy spring day. We didn’t let that hold us down and joined our friends are the local dog bar! They ran around like crazies and a good dry time was had by all!

 This was one of our last Charlotte meet ups before we head back west. I’m so glad it was a great one!

Today Basil is having a lazy, sleepy Sunday on the sofa. I think yesterday was a little bit too much fun!

Tomorrow I’ll be posting the No Sew Bow Tie DIY tutorial so make sure to check back then!

It was the 3rd day of October and my hipster gave to me…

… A manly Boston terrier in a blue floral scarf!
Basil is secure in his masculinity and loves to add floral into his wardrobe. This blue scarf (made by Juicy Couture. Okay, it may be mine…) is in honor of Blue Friday where ever 12th man, woman, and dog wears blue to support our Seattle Seahawks.

What is everyone’s plans for the weekend? Is everyone enjoying the fall weather? Let us know in the comments below.

Happiness is a rainy summer day in Asheville!

Its been a little stormy around these parts the last couple of days. We woke up Saturday morning and decided to embrace the cooler temperatures and “light” rain and head up into the smokey mountains for the day. We really didn’t have a plan but found ourselves in our favorite North Carolina city, Asheville. What we thought was just going to be a short stop for lunch and to pop are heads (and paws) into The Three Dog Bakery turned into a full day of shopping, eating, drinking, and socializing. Basil, like aways, had a lot of fun and made more than a few new friends.
Special thanks to Posana Cafe, The Southern, and Wicked Weed for giving us shelter from the rain and being beyond welcoming of Basil and his ever so slight wet dog smell!

Thunderstorm Thursday!

Happy Thursday everyone! Its been super stormy all day today so everyone has been staying in the house and trying to stay dry. We have a full house this week. Jack the golden retriever is staying with us and he is a little bit of a baby. (He is scared of thunder!) He has been hiding behind a trash can in our office for the majority of the day. Luckily enough it stopped raining right around our usual puppy walk time. We headed out for a wet two dog walk.
