About a month ago, I picked up a black, velour hoodie jacket for Kendall. It has "Rotten" written across the back, as in totally spoiled..

One of my friends mentioned that all she needed were some low-slung jeans and she'd be a Juicy Girl. I couldn't figure out how to put jeans on a dog, so she has a miniskirt. I picked it up at the resale shop and cut it apart so we could tie it around her waist. As you can see, she just loves wearing the outfit. Right.

There's a Halloween costume party at small dog playday at Pup-a-Razzi on Saturday. I'm on the road, so I'm hoping someone will take lots of pictures for me to post.

More random pictures

After Dogtoberfest on the east side, we stopped at The Lucky Lab's west side location on the way home for a bit to eat. It was a gorgeous day, so we sat outside in the sun. Around here you have to soak up every last bit of sunshine so it will hold you until next July when the sun comes out again.

More from Mutt Mixer

Here are some more pictures from the costume party at Hotel Monaco earlier this month. Kendall had a great time meeting dogs with all kinds of costumes. She really didn't mind wearing her black hoodie. It says Rotten on the back. Perhaps I should get her some jeans and a big belt to complete the outfit. :)

Picture perfect day

It was an absolutely beautiful day in the Pacific Northwest today. The sun was out, the leaves are turning, and temperatures were in the low 60's. We took a drive to McMinnville to pick up our fall wine Cellar Club "shipment" from Sokol Blosser Winery. We stopped at a park in Lafayette and then at the winery.

Hanging out

Friday was pretty rainy, so we just hung out at home after dinner. Kendall was busy with some chew toys. When The Dog Whisperer came on tv, it really got Kendall's attention.

As promised, more pictures

I'm home for a bit and finally got around to downloading some pictures from the camera. Here are some random pictures from Dogtoberfest, which was held earlier this month at the Lucky Lab Brewery in Southeast Portland.

The final shake.

Travel time

I travel in bits and spurts for work, and it's now the spurt part. Wait, that didn't sound so good. I'm on the road while Kendall is snug as a bug in a rug at home with the family. So, please be patient in the upcoming weeks as there won't be as many posts as usual. I promise to download some pictures from the camera next time I'm home so I'll have new stuff to post.

Mutt Mixer

Last Thursday we took Kendall downtown to the Hotel Monaco for Mutt Mixer. It was sponsored by Spot Magazine and featured a costume contest. All of the proceeds from the night benefited the local animal shelter.

There was also a professional photographer available to take your pup's picture for a donation. Melissa from Bella Vista Photography was there taking some great photos. Here's a picture of Kendall in her velour hoodie. On the back it says "Rotten".
