{228 days old}

Last of the catch-up posts!  When we first started this blog Darwin was already almost 8 months old, so we had some back tracking to do to document the first 8 months of her life.  This will be the last of those "pre-blog" posts.  Woo hoo!
Late September, we still have a decent amount of sun in the afternoons in Seattle, so we took one of the last opportunities to run Darwin at the park after work.  We headed over to Discovery Park since it's the closest to us and maximizes our sun time.  
We let her off leash to run free chasing Jason and her tennis ball.

We noticed a lady walking towards us with a small dog, so we quickly leashed Darwin as she's not supposed to be off leash and most small dog owners are afraid of a big puppy hurting their dog.  As she got closer though, she let her dog off leash and we let the two dogs play.  I think the small dog had a crush on Darwin.
{Hello big girl!  Come say hello!}

{Oh, hello down there!}

Darwin's not much of a fetcher, so she watched her new friend fetch her ball for her.

The sun was starting to go down, and Darwin's new friend had to go home, so we continued on our way.

We watched the sun set and then headed home.

***We'll be off on vacation so there will be no blog posts for the next few days.  Hope everyone has a happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday!  We'll be back with stories and pictures of our weekend adventures!


  1. It looks like EVERYONE had a great time! We're not supposed to let Jack off leash at the local park either, but sometimes you just have to break the law!!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! I credited Darwin in a recent blog for the new bed. It's HUGE!

  3. You did a great job catching up! It has been an awesome read and we are looking forward to future posts!
