{26july2011: SIB}

***btw, the thing Darwin was snacking on in our last wordless Wednesday post was a knuckle bone!***

For the past 2 years we've been taking a half day on the Friday before the 4th of July to go to SIB (the Seattle International Beerfest). It runs for 3 days and you get to try a lot of different beers. One of the great things about SIB (besides the beer) is that its dog friendly and 100% of the proceeds goes to Pet Cross! Drinking for a good cause! 
We went with a few friends and Darwin's bff, Juneau.

It was a pretty warm day but we luckily got there early enough to snag a table with an umbrella providing good shade for the pups and near the pet booth that had lots of water. Of course Darwin had to wear her party beer beads!
The dogs got tons of attention (as usual) and the humans had a lot of fun trying the beers.

We remembered to bring snacks for Dar and kept her busy by putting them in her treat toy.
Darwin even got relaxed enough and totally sprawled out (she never does that in public).
All those beers and relaxing out in the sun was a great way to kick off the fourth of July weekend!


  1. Beer yuuuummmy. I love beer!!! Darwin looks like she had a great time! Cute pics of you :)

    Thanks for stopping by as always :)

  5. Beer, Darwin? I don't think you're even old enough to drink. Did you have to wear a wrist bracelet to show that you shouldn't be caught chugging any Lagunitas Dogtown IPA?

  6. i love how its so dog friendly up there! everything here always says "no dogs"

    lucky darwin!

  7. Hi Darwin, it looks like you had a great fourth of July. We had Canada Day on July 1st - it's kind of like your fourth and we had a good time too. Your humans looked like they had fun too.

  8. Looked like a fun party! There was a lot of noise here, and Nala didn't like that part too much.

    Woofs & hugs <3,

  10. Oh my gosh! How did we miss that event?! Looks like it was a blast!
