The tree is up, decorated, and we're ready for the holidays!
And yes, I know... it's been over a month since my last post. What can I say, life's busy. But I always appreciate people stopping by the blog, and will do my best to keep it (semi)-active ;-)

We took a little trip up the coast this weekend, finally making our way to Mendocino. After traveling along windy roads through Redwood forests, and more windy roads along the coast (carsick, much?!), we made it to the seaside town of Mendocino. The nuggets were excited! Read on for our adventures in this amazing (and very dog-friendly) part of the world.

A few more recent pics....

Our weekends have come to involve playgrounds. Regularly. And I can't help but feel slightly guilty, seeing Captain sitting on the sidelines like this...staring at us, sadly. I also feel bad that there are more outings that don't involve him - music class for Nugget, shopping, playdates.... we leave the house, closing the door to him looking at us, and just say, "We'll be back soon Captain." It makes me sad... but I suppose there is some inevitability in having human babies that the fur ones will get second priority. Still, we do a lot to make sure he's not a sad older sibling. And luckily, we have some great parks nearby that serve both nuggets well- read on for a little more on some of those!

Here's to taking time for beautiful runs!
Thursday, April 16, 2015
Apologies for the blogging hiatus! There's good reason- it's been a hard few months. First, we lost our nanny and had to scramble for childcare, in the same week we were forced out of our apartment due to renovations & resulting potential health hazards, AND I was preparing for the job interview of a lifetime. Stressful, much?!! We were hopping around air b'nb's (mind you, with a 15 month old nugget), none of which were dog-friendly, so poor Captain had to stay with friends, apart from the family. That's no way for a Vizsla to live! I worked in runs with Captain on the weekends, but it was limited time with him, and hard to be unsettled.

Or rather, the bumps WERE back. I started writing this post in early December, when Captain broke out in a ton of those little skin bumps, but then I never got around to finishing or posting this. I had big plans to do a detailed search, track downs and provide tons of information on skin bumps and allergies in dogs in general and in Vizslas in particular.... and then suddenly, after only a few days, the bumps just went away on their own. And also, let's be honest- I just didn't have the time to do the research and write-up. But, I'm finally getting around to posting something, and figured I'd do a quick update, even if it's not the comprehensive resource I was planning to post. (FYI, you can see my previous posts on Vizsla allergies here: types of bumps and our first experience with allergies - in both posts, readers have left comments that may be useful to others experiencing these issues).

2014 was a big year for Captain's family. It marked the first full year that Captain was a big brother, that we had two nuggets in the household, that we shared in the amazingness of our littlest addition. It is also the least amount of blogging I've done, but.... you'll forgive me, I've been busy ;)
