Around Town on Flower Friday

Welcome to Flower Friday!!
Today, Jakey and I are going to take you for a walkie around our 
little town to look at our local flowers!

Our first stop is the beach, where we found this little purple beach flower!!

Next, a quick stop by the local Co-Op,

Where we found all these colorful flowers for sale!

"Let's show them the flowers we found around the neighborhood, Dory!!"
"Good Idea, Jakey!"

This poor little daisy has seen better days, but isn't it the most beautiful shade of orange??

The jasmine still smells divine!

We can't wait to show you this cool's right down this street....


Isn't it pawesome??!! Mama (and Google) says this is 
Cornus Kousa fruit on a Kousa Dogwood Tree!  Supposedly it is edible, but Mama said we weren't allowed to eat any...sheesh!

We still have wild roses blooming...

...and the neighborhood lantana is as pretty as ever!!

Come on Mama, let's show effuryone the flowers around the house!!

Our front yard Bougainvillea is blooming more than it ever has!! Mama loves the wine colored blooms....

These Purple Asters just keep blooming and blooming, season after season!!

We were surprised to see this little rhody bloom hiding next to the house!!

Finally, we wanted to let you know that the pink bougainvillea is still taking over the fence in the side yard!!!

We are wrapping up our weekly Flower Friday Blog Hops and starting in November we will move to monthly Flower Fridays on the 1st Friday of the Month!
That means the next Flower Friday will in 2 weeks on November 4th!

Thursday Travel Tails - Idaho

Howdy and Happy Travel Tails Thursday!!
Today I, Dory, am back to tell you about our travels through Idaho!!

The most funnest and most important thing Arty and I did while in Idaho was stop by to see our Sweethearts, along with Hazel, at the Idaho Pug Ranch!! We had the bestest time EVER!!
If you didn't get a chance to read about our visit, make sure to click
to read all about it!!!

Today, we are going to let you know about the rest of our day in Idaho!
 The rest areas in Idaho are bunches like those in the Midwest!

 They had beautimous scenery and trails for us to walkies on.

 ...and even rocks for us to climb on!!!

 Arty wasn't as fond of the rocks as I was...

 He did like the trails though!!!
He "said" he saw some prairie dogs..but I told him they were probably just ground squirrels. 

 Mama here: These were some of the nicest rest areas of the trip (we stopped at two separate rest areas). They had full trail "parks" at both, and we took full advantage of them. The human facilities were both enclosed, making them comfortable both in hot and cold weather! Both California and Texas could learn a thing or two from Idaho Rest Areas!!

 We loved looking out the window in Idaho..Mama kept saying how it was a "transition state" as we drove from the plateaus and ranges of Cowboy Country into the more mountainous regions of Oregon! 


 All we knew was Mabel and Mr. Bailey said that they knew for a fact Idaho grows FRENCH FRIES under their dirt!!!

 Yep...just look at all those French Fry plants waiting to be harvested and fried up, NOMMY!!!

 But we are getting off topic, aren't we?? 

We also saw  Wind Farms

 We followed the Oregon Trail. The early Pioneer Doggies traveled along the very same trail!!

We saw the Snake River...which, we are happy to report, does not have any snakes around it!!

 We didn't get to the hotel until early evening, so we didn't have bunches of time to explore. But it was a very nice place!

 We took short walk around the grounds and were very impressed with the individual picnic areas and grills!!

 The bed was totally comfy and after our long day in Idaho we fell asleep right after we finished our evening constitutional!
Mama here: the Idaho LQ (in Caldwell) was one where, although it hadn't been updated, I would visit again. It was very rustic and had a real "Wild West" feel.  Between the picnic areas with grills and the mesquite wood furniture, I felt like I had slipped back in time a few years!

We woke up VERY early the next morning and took
Mama outside to see the sunrise before hitting the road into Oregon!!

We all really enjoyed Idaho and were sad to leave!!
 We are definitely going to see if Daddy will come with us next time we visit!!

We are winding down our Thursday Travel Tails for 2016. Join us next week as we wrap up this season with the last leg of our BAR travel through Oregon!!


Pretty in Pink

I am interrupting this post for a very impawtant pawlitical announcement!!!

 We need YOU to ask the Candy Dates Questions!! Please ask Arty, Mabel, Chris or Oreo a Question in our comments, and we will answer it next week in the 
Blogville Election!!

Now...back to our regularly scheduled post....

 As a Blogville Mayoral Candy Date, I feel one of my duties is to share important 
things we need to help our humans!

Today, I am wearing pink to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month!  

The whole month of October is dedicated to making more people aware of Breast Cancer and to help support those who have been effected by the disease! 

In Blogville, we have a very special spokesperson for 
Breast Cancer Awareness.
Do you see her up there on my very special bandana???

 That's right, it's our very own Angel Greta from the Idaho Pug Ranch!!

She has her own very special story about how she helped her Mama...and became a "Pink Dog"
Go HERE to read all about it!!

 Every year Angel Greta celebrates by giving away special pins to remind everyone to 
"Think Pink" in October!!

Here is Dory modeling hers now!

It makes a wonderful hair accessory!

Or even a pretty boutonniere!

Angel Greta and her Mama will mail them anywhere in the world! 

If you don't have yours yet, or maybe you know someone who would like to spread the word about Breast Cancer Awareness, let me know in the comments, or visit the Idaho Pug Ranch HERE!
