Hello internet friends! Happy Thursday! I think someone told Basil it’s almost the freakin’ weekend because he has been seriously crazy today. It started with breakfast and I’m sure it will continue until bedtime. Silly boy!
Also, fun news today our favorite pet food brand Freshpet just launched a new contest. Does your pet love Freshpet food or treats? Do they dance, sing, or act crazy to get their paws on it?

All thanks to you! Well, it is that time of year again. Check out the choices below and make your vote! Also, if you think of something that is not on this list, make sure to vote for other and let me know.
Voting will run until October 15th,so that I can make sure his costume arrives by Halloween.
Vote as much as you want. Remember voting closes October 15th. Make sure Basil wears what you want this Halloween!
It’s throwback Thursday so enjoy this photo from when Basil met a 9 week old chocolate lab puppy. Circa April 2015 Sycamore Brewing company. Hope your week is going well! Also, Basil would like to say happy birthday to his uncle Jake.
“I hear they have to pick up the food they drop on the floor!”

The weekend giveaway is still going. No one has guessed where we are headed this weekend. If you want to leave a guess in the comments below and you guess correctly by 4pm Friday (Pacific time), you will win a special prize for you and your dog!
Here are the clues so far…
1) We have to take a ferry to get there.
2) Its in the USA but you can see another country from its shores.
Basil, Luna, my sister-in-law Sara, and I headed to the dog park yesterday for some play time and a swim in the lake. Luna (Sara’s black lab mix) is a grade A water dog. The moment she spotted the beach she was off!
Basil isn’t that much of a swimmer. He just likes to dip his paws in the water and play with other dogs on the beach. Recently we got him a life jacket. The thought was that maybe if he felt a little more comfortable in the water he would want to swim with us. Well, it worked! It only took a few times in the water and Basil became swimmer dog.
Check out the this video of Basil first official swim with his life jacket on.
If your dog needs a life jacket this summer we recommend the Aussie Life Jacket. I got it at TJ Maxx for a steal at only $16.99. Brightly colored, handy top handles, and floats like a champ. (Not a sponsored post. Just really happy with the product!)
I can’t wait to hit up the water again and see Basil do some more swimming. So proud of him!
Today all of our fellow pet blogger friends are gathered in Nashville, TN for the 2015 BlogPaws conference. We really wish we could have been there this year but the cross country move just didn’t make it possible.
For throwback Thursday I thought I would post a few of our favorite photos from last years conference in Las Vegas, NV. Although we are missing the conference this year we will still be able to watch the Nose-to-Nose award show online, which we are nominated for an award in the Best Photo category. If you want to watch the award show along with us you can find the live stream here, https://www.youtube.com/user/BlogPaws starting at 7pm CST on Saturday May 30th.
Hopefully we will be able to attend the conference next year to learn a lot and see all our friends!
Now back to packing up our entire life! Washington State, we’ll see you soon! Xoxo
