WA state - here I come!

I'm meeting my best friend from high school in Seattle tomorrow! She has some crazy-mad dog agility skills and flew from Fairbanks to Seattle yesterday with her Border Collie, Patch, for some WA state agility trials.

It's a lot cheaper for me to fly to Seattle on Southwest - $69 each way - than to Fairbanks! (and the weather is probably nicer in WA than in AK - even tho the forecast is rain, rain and more rain... hello frizzy poof ball hair! At least it's not snow and freezing)


The agility trial is in Auburn just outside of Seattle and I guess there is a huge dog complex with housing/dorms or some such thing. We are splitting a room, rental car, meals etc. We will venture out to find unique WA areas, eateries, shops and coffee! Oooooo - I'm gonna get me one o' them fancy coffee whatchamacallits and some fresh, fresh, fresh seafood every day! And there will be dogs - lots and lots o' dogs .... so I'll be happy. Even tho' I will miss my pooches at home... sniff.



I'm looking forward to getting away and getting in some good, quality girl bonding...


Poor Furry Husband will hold down the fort... he thinks Speck will go into heat the second I leave. I'm sure he's right... ain't that the way the world works?

I can 't remember the name of the place. But I ate the best, BEST, fish and chips on Pike's Place in Seattle. The restaurant is more like a stand, you go up to the window and order, they pass it out to you and you go sit on their dock to eat. You can feed your leftovers to the hungry sea gulls!!! I had a blast there!

PS- I hope it doesn't rain!
