Today is travel day. The majority of our day was spend in the airport or on a plane. We have successfully landed in Texas and Basil did great. We are going to spend the rest of our day enjoying our family.
Big thanks to Alaska Airlines for a great flight and welcoming crew.
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!

Yesterday Basil got to meet and play with our friends new 4 month old mini Aussie puppy. Athena is a tiny, deaf, super fluffy pup who has no fear! She jumped right in to wrestle with Basil and every other larger dog that came her way.
As well as getting to play with Athena, Basil found a few other Boston friends.
All and all it was a successful trip to the dog park. Thanks Farrah for sharing your new fluffiness with us. I think Basil & Athena will be life long friends!
Its been a pretty good Blogiversary weekend. Today is time for relaxing and doing some planning for up coming travel plans. I hope your weekend is going well! Until next time!
Happy Saturday friends! Today marks the 2 year anniversary of Basil’s Travels! We couldn’t be happier from all the love and support you have given us these last couple years. We have gone on so many adventures and can’t wait for all the ones to come.
Hello friends! In a couple short weeks we are off back to the West Coast so today we spent visiting with friends and hitting up some of our favorite spots!
First stop, Sycamore Brewing Company. We hung out with friends, fellow pups, and some good beer. Today was the day Basil had his first taste of beer! (Dogs should not have alcohol. It can cause liver damage or death! Please do not give you dog alcohol. It was only a taste and it was given to him by a friendly stranger who only had good intentions in mind.) It was a great time!
Next we hit up Vin Master Wine Shop. For good wine, more friends, and air conditioning! Basil got to weigh himself on a vintage scale, he weighs 24 lbs, and got a ton of treats!
We are currently enjoying some wine and relaxing. Basil, Nate, the cats, and myself will cherish the remainder of our time here in Charlotte, North Carolina.
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!
Just yesterday BarkPost (BarkBox’s blog. If you do not follower them head over there now and sign up for their weekly emails here. Totally worth it!) posted an article about one of our favorite dog friendly hotels. Aloft Asheville, the Asheville branch of the Aloft Hotels chain, started arguably the best new hotel policy in dog friendly hotel history! Since July of 2014 Aloft Asheville has brought in local adoptable dogs to help check you in and to pull at your heart strings. During your stay you can enjoy the company of these lovable pups in many areas of the hotel and if the fit is right the Aloft will help you with the adoption.
Since the policy went into effect 14 dogs have found their forever homes! To read the complete BarkPost article click here!
Basil loves the Aloft Asheville and seriously tries to drag me in there every time we are in Asheville. Remember our last post about Aloft? Check it out here!
Thank you to BarkPost for the great post. Just another reason to spend a couple days in Asheville, NC. Come for the amazing city and leave with a new member of the family.
Happy Sunday Funday! Yesterday was Charlotte’s annual Woofstock event. This was the 2nd year Basil, Nate, and I attended and it was a lot of fun. We met a lot of new friends; big and small. It was at the Amos South venue in the Southend neighborhood of Charlotte. Benefitting Blue ridge boxer rescue and Great Dane friends of Ruff Love, so the event was filled to the gills with Great Danes and boxers. Basil loves his big dogs and couldn’t have been more happy. There was plenty of vendors and a huge silent auction. It was a good Saturday afternoon and we are happy to be able to support two great local rescues.
More great events coming up in the next few months! Can’t wait for what fall has to offer!
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
