{23april2012: downtown walk}

Spring has finally come to Seattle (off and on) and on one Friday, Darwin came to work with me and we were able to take a walk downtown during lunch. This was the first time I got really sad about moving. The weather was a perfect spring day and I realized how much I was going to miss it. Darwin of course just saw it as great walking weather.
The nice thing about our office in Seattle is that we can walk down to the SAM sculpture park and to Pike Place Market during our lunch break.
{ahhhh the sun feels so good on my face}

Darwin's best Maddie the Coonhound impression, though of course not nearly as impressive. (I mean come on, really?!)

After the sculpture park we stopped at the butcher in the market so I could pick up raw bones for Darwin. She LOVES bone buying trips as they usually give her a little treat.

I even made a quick little video of our walk:

*BTW on a random note, I looked at the statistics for this blog, and the top 4 search keywords:

  1. looks like a nice walk, its already getting too hot here to walk in the afternoons - it was already 90 yesterday sigh.

  2. Hi Darwin and B: We're going to "miss" you in Seattle too. My mom and dad would have liked to have met you but you know how life and stuff get in the way even though you just live "down the street". But at least we'll still be able to connect through blogs and e-mail. Good luck.

  3. O Spring is one of our favourite seasons, along with Autumn :) THe crisp sunny day's are perfect for walking in!

    Cool photo's!

    Lots of slobbers,
    Lexi and Jasper the Danes

  4. That looks like such a fun walk = I'll bet there are all kinds of great smells there!
    Play bows,

  5. Darwin, you are such a heaps cool girl. What a great walk. Everyone sure loved to see you. Hope you enjoyed your bones. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  6. How great you get to go with your Mom to work. That is pawsome. I know how you feel about the sunshine it's feel marvelous and has been peeking out from the clouds a little more than usual lately. What a nice time.

  7. love Darwin posing on the bench! Do you think you're going to really miss your walks? Seattle seems to have so many beautiful places. I find that one of the hardest parts of moving around – having to find new good walks for you and your dog… It can take a while sometimes!
