Purple haze

First a special message to our friends Blueberry, Bunny and Morgan..we have never actually met you but we cried with you upon hearing about the passing of sweet Lilac.  we all celebrated her sweet 16th birthday a short time ago and mentally crossed our fingers that we would all have a fur-kid to reach that great number.  Her passing affected us all.  A heartfelt hug from one of your many blogger families.
After a lot of traveling, we have settled a bit.  We spent one weekend at Saude Creek Winery which has newly opened near New Kent Winery.  it was pretty..the wine was mediocre.


the next weekend we went to Orange County airport to another wine festival with Kristen, Gyeong and Judy. They had skydivers constantly falling from the sky.

We have also been watching a ton of dogs..not sure what the 'reasons' are..but everyone seems to travel in October.  Feeding time can be tricky..but we have mastered getting 10 or more dogs to eat at the same time without sharing or bickering!
 Peppermint is such a cutie
Yuki enjoys a rare nap..
 I like this photo of Shiloh..very typical
Cali enjoys her 'beehive'..it is 2nd favorite toy with the Pink Poodle trumping all of them.
Dana being super cute


And every year Jason loves to carve pumpkins.  we went to Ashland Berry farm and got a bunch of pumpkins and then ended up getting two in our CSA box..so he hasn't carved them all but these are the first two. Hopefully, we will get them all done today or tomorrow..especially since Halloween is Monday and the neighbors start to talk if you have jack-o-lanterns out for Thanksgiving.
I might have some special visitors shortly...not 100% sure but more to follow.

Looks like your 'nifty fifty' is getting a workout with the nice tight headshots. Dana's ears remind me of The Flying Nun. It's been non-stop boarders for us too in Oct.

Dana's ears are just too cute! She's having a good time with that bone :)

Thank you for the very kind words about Lilac! We were incredibly lucky to have shared her life!

I love those jack o lanterns!

Your boarders are all so cute! I love the name Peppermint!

Those pumpkins are impressive and very scary!

Wow, well done on having 10 polite dogs. That's quite an achievement. Love the photos.

Hope you have a great Halloween:)

Jason is too talented. He has to be from another planet. I saw MIB. I know how this works.

Don't talk lenses. I'm trying to be good.
