Freshpet Made me Do it! Contest time!

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?

Just an average Wednesday! 

Happy wordless Wednesday internet friends. Here we see just an average Wednesday where Darth Vader, Princess Leia, and Master Yoda hang out, probably for afternoon tea and to talk about book club. Obviously.

 This is just 1 of Basil’s Halloween costumes. Check our Instagram for even more coming up everyday until Halloween where Basil will wear the costume, voted by you, the piñata! It’s pretty adorable!
What is your dog or cat going to be for Halloween? Do they like to get dressed up? Let us know! I would love to see your pictures.

The Black & Whites Return!

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!

Black and white brothers! Cat & Dog!
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?

Best Buds Forever! 

 Sometimes you just need a snuggle from a good friend. Happy Wednesday internet friends! Go find yourself a good friend to snuggle and remember, 2 days until the weekend!

Travel well, nap well, let’s be well!

Life is crazy! 

Our life as of late is boxes, bubble wrap, and tape. In a few short weeks we are moving back out west and man it’s a ton of work! I’ve done this move now  going on 4 times so you would think I’d have it down, but no! I don’t know if the pets know for sure what’s happen yet but they will know very soon.

Because of this craziness the blog may be a little slow in the next coming weeks. I’ll be working hard to keep posts coming but it probably won’t be everyday. To keep up with us make sure to follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook at @basilstravels
Also, to get email updates on every Basil’s Travels post head over to Bloglovin’ and follow us there!

Hope everyone is having a great week. What are your plans for Memorial Day weekend? I’d love to know! Until next time! Xoxo

Basil’s Favorite Things — Pink Case NY

TGIF! This week has some how gone by super slow and ultra fast all at the same time. So much has been happening and we have been so very busy. On top of all of it Nate and I got new phones. That being fun, and exciting and all but that also means needing new accessories. My husband found his new case right away. It has everything that he enjoys which includes typography, and dinosaurs.

For me that search was a little more intense. I was looking everywhere online and after more than a few days of spending way to much time on the internet I found it.

The search came to an end on Etsy. The place where all unique, beautiful handmade items go to find their forever homes.  My fabulous new iPhone 6 plus case was found at Pink Case NY. It was perfect for me. With the combination of Starbucks, and an adorable Boston terrier, I was hooked! 

My new phone case is not only super cute but really durable. The price was great (Just about $20!) and shipping was quick and easy. I highly recommend checking Pink Case NY on Etsy. They not only have Boston terrier cases but almost every dog breed under the sun. Also, if you are more of a cat/bunny/penguin/horse/sloth/bear person they have you covered too!

Tomorrow I’ll be posting about a few upcoming trips that we are really excited about. Hope you guys are enjoying your Friday!

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!”
