~Priest Gulch Trip- June 7-14, 2014~
 
We had an amazing week at Priest Gulch on the Dolores River about 20 miles from Dolores, Colorado.  We had an great space, #22, right on the river.  Just relaxing, reading, hiking, and discovering Dolores and Rico.  So much fun, we ended up booking another trip for late September to see the leaves change.
 
 
 Sassy is almost 13 now and gets tired, so she's in the stroller.
 
 
 We have two pug chairs, but Daisy Doo loves to snuggle up with Sassy Sue.
 
 Our attempt at a "selfie" on the Priest Creek. 
 
 Oh, how we love our Campfires!
 
 Enjoying the Enterprise Bar's open air dining.
 
 "Come on, mum, let's go."  I went in to see the Enterprise Bar, somewhat like the Palace Bar in Prescott, AZ.
 
Just love this campground.....we'll be back.

~Just a Sittin' and a Thinkin'~
 




 

 

 Cracks me up the way pets like to hang out in the big people bed.  Daisy is definitely a pillow pug, while Sass takes to the right end corner.  Never fails!  Poor Bentley just sits  where he finds a place, Sassy can't stand him, so it's not too close to her.  :0)


~Yippee  We Got Our Loca the Pug Calendar!~
 

Notice the frustrated look on my face!  No matter how hard we tried, we couldn't get Bentley to look at the camera.  The look definitely says, "Just take the darn picture, Jeff!" 

If you haven't a clue who Loca is, go to YouTube and check out the Loca the Pug videos.  She is a special needs pug who lives in Ireland.  I follow her on FB  https://www.facebook.com/LocaThePug

~The Great Pacific Coast Adventure~
 
Finished a 6 week RV trip to Puget Sound and the Pacific Coast.  What a great adventure.  The puggies were great little travelers, only to be outdone by Bentley the cat.  He reminds me of a hippie from the 1960s, everything is A-ok with him!  Enjoyed our trip of a lifetime, but also glad to be home.  Planning our next trip to Joshua Tree National Park in November.  :0)

~Just A Sittin' And A Thinkin'~
 
 
While watching Daisy Doo take to my chair, plunk herself down and stare off into oblivion, I got to thinking perhaps, pugs like a time to just think and reflect.  Wonder what she is thinking about, cookies? toy? or just life in general?  Well, that's my random thought for today!  :0)

~Jalama Beach Puggy Adventure~



~Jalama Beach Puggy Adventure~

Our October outing was a true celebration.  We celebrated the end of my radiation treatments and the beginning of the rest of our life.  It's amazing how much cancer really messes up your life style, but with that behind us, we're off to new adventures.  

Jalama Beach is a hidden jewel near Lompoc California.  A long drive through ranch country takes you to this incredible beach.  Behind me you can see the peninsula that is Vandenberg Airbase.  Very windy, but incredible beach.  It was a great vacation and we met some campers with a 1965 Airstream, all renovated to the era.  How cool is that for this 60s child?  :0)

~A Little Getaway on Mingus Mountain, Arizona~

Friends we met on www.pugslife.org Aronda and Ron came up the mountain to visit us last weekend.  Since the monsoons are in full force, we retreated to the awning when the rains came.  Luckily, we got a little time to enjoy a yummy barbeque and S'mores!  Nothing better than pugs, good friends, and camping!  :0)

~Arizona Centennial Quilt Testers~

The puggies approve of my dad's birthday quilt. I used the Arizona Centennial fabric, it was a dream to piece. Making one for my father-in-law's birthday too, but he doesn't like the puggies. Shhhhh! Don't let him know there'll be puggy bums on his quilt, too! These girls are the official quilt testers! Daisy Doo, the middle one, is the good puggy and she is NOT too patient with my seniors who took forever to pose. I think she was rolling her eyes and saying, "Oh, brother!" It's quite a family affair getting them all in a row for our quilt testing. The one on the left, Buffy Boo, is nearly blind, and Sassy Sue is on the right.  Both of my seniors are going deaf. Jeff and I are definitely the "puggy wranglers" when it comes to quilt photos! :0)
