Fun weekend for Darwin. We spent Saturday going for a walk around one of the neighborhoods near us, Ballard. They have streets of cute boutiques and great restaurants. Darwin has been better at walking on the leash when we've gone walking around our neighborhood, so we decided to forgo the pinch collar thinking she'd be well behaved. As soon as we parked and started walking we realized we needed the collar. There were so many new smells and things to see she was soo excited and pulling us everywhere! Luckily I had a baggie of treats with me and was able to somewhat keep her under control by practicing heeling and waiting.
We walked down to the vet to get her weighed, cause we haven't been in a few months. The last weight they had recorded was 58.7lbs back in the summer. As of Saturday (1 week shy of 1 year old) she's up to 111.2lbs!
After the vet we did a bit more walking and stopped to take this picture for my 2 year old nephew:
It's Darwin and a digger... When we were back home in Hawaii at New Years, he made me read his digger book to him over and over. He loves big trucks and motorcycles!
We made our way back towards the car and stopped at Bark, a pet store, to pick up some treats. As I was shopping, our little (big) thief Darwin managed to sneak a treat out of a low lying container. That rascal. We did pick her up one of these:
I grabbed a non-hairy one.
And she got to snack on it while we picked up lunch at a great sandwich shop, Other Coast Cafe.
Sunday was another day at Marymoor, and there were a lot of danes there! I didn't get many pictures, but Darwin had a great time with a new blue friend Minnie. On our way out we ran into a 1.5 year old dane lab mix who Darwin had a great time playing chase and tug with.
Another fun weekend, and the countdown to Darwin's first birthday begins! 6 more days!
