It’s almost the freakin’ weekend! 

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!

Basil presents Dog Friendly destinations – Seattle, WA

Its another Travel Tuesday and I know I said I was going to do San Antonio, Texas but I changed my mind. I’m so excited to get back to the beautiful city of Seattle I thought I would do part 1 of probably many Seattle, Washington dog friendly destinations! These are only a few of the great spots in Seattle, it really is an amazingly dog friendly place. I’ll be posting more on other Travel Tuesdays so make sure to check back!Dog Friendly Destinations - Seattle, WA Soon we will be back on the West Coast and be going to a lot of West Coast destinations. Where do you want to see us go?

The hardest rooting 12th dog in the game! Go Hawks!

In this house we are huge Seattle Seahawks fans! You may have realized that if you have been to this blog before, or visited our Instagram or Twitter acounts. Its in our blood; every member of this family bleeds blue & green! So that means we have two (vert fat) 12th cats and the hardest rooting 12th dog in the game!

That being said, all of us are very excited that come this Sunday we get to watch our beloved Hawks in their 2nd Superbowl in 2 years! #rePete So much that we have been getting ready ourselves. Hardest Rooting 12th dog in the game!

Basil has been sporting his 12th dog gear every waking moment in anticipation. I also threw the referee jersey on Sebastian in hopes that maybe that will give us some better luck with the refs this weekend. (You never know! It’s only crazy if it doesn’t work!) 12th cat and 12th dog!

So this Sunday we will be yelling and screaming for our Seattle Seahawks and hoping for them to come home with the W. Lets all hope for a clean, fair football game and let the best team win! 12th cat and 12th dog!

In closing I’ll leave you with the famous words of Bill Nye, Rainn Wilson, Chris Pratt, Macklemore, and Katy Perry… “GO HAWKS!”

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.
