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!

Where is this year going?! Thanksgiving is just a couple of days away and then its Christmas and before you know its 2015! We have been super busy getting ready for our upcoming Christmas trip to Texas as well as counting down the moments until Thanksgiving. On top of all of that its been really cold here! Basil has been wearing his Chilly Dog sweaters everyday for warmth but I started to worry about his little puppy paws. Last winter, when we got our Christmas tree and when we had our Valentine’s Day snow storm, Basil loved running around outside until his Boston terrier paw pads where so red mommy had to take him in.
We have talked about getting him some little dog booties in the past and even tried them on, with much resistance, but never committed to purchase. I felt now was the time, especially when we are traveling into the smoky mountains this weekend to chop down our 2014 Xmas tree.
Basil, Nate, and I took a trip to our local Petco in search of ridiculously cute boots for dogs. Oh, we found them! We decided on the Pup Crew Fall 2014 dark blue quilted zip dog shoes in size Large.
Basil is such a good sport and let me put these boots right on him in a flash, this time with little to no struggle.
Once his four paws hit the floor he was a little wary. As he “walked” around the house he looked more like a prancing pony or bow-legged crazy than my normal happy go lucky dog. It took a little getting use to. We even had him wear them outside on a walk to Nana & Papa’s house. After a few minutes of that same silly gate Basil seem to understand what was going on and started to walk normally. I think he actually realized that his paws were warm and dry while outside and he liked that.
If you are looking for some affordable dog booties for your pet we highly recommend the Petco Pup Crew shoes. They are soft, warm, cute, and most important stay on your dogs paws! They come in a lot of colors and have nice rubber soles. You can check them out here or at your local Petco.
Hope everyone is staying warm and safe. What are your plains for Thanksgiving and Christmas? Let us know in the comments below.
Travel well, nap well, live well!

… 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.
Today’s scarf look is inspired by Josh Gates! If you don’t know who Josh Gates is he is a traveler, adventurer, and wearer of epic scarfs. Hit up Netflix and watch Destination Truth to witness it for yourself!
Happy Thursday all! Just remember… It’s almost the weekend!
