Dog Days of Summer

Some how I managed to keep my plant alive for the past year. It wasn't just any plant it was a fern! I found it difficult to keep it alive as it was touch and go for awhile during the winter. With my plant still alive this meant Nick would let me get a dog. Yes I'm a grown woman, but this was our compromise. With that being said, Saturday Roxy the German Shorthair Pointer became the newest addition to 1129 Carson. She's a lover!

She quickly learned where her food & water dish were, where her bed & toys were and where to potty. She seems to be a smart little pup so far. She already heads to the door when she needs to potty. Yeah and she's only 8 weeks old imagine that!

Next thing to tackle...the crate!

Roxy at her finest

Within the hour she learned where her food bowl was.

On August 15th I will be bringing home a German Shorthaired Pointer. Stay tune for stories about raising a pup...
Here she is already sniffing out a trail.

Lake of the Sky Fest ' 09

Saturday marked the Third Annual Lake of the Sky Festival. Filled with great bands, arts and crafts, Eco messaging, and beer from Tallac Brewing Co. Oh yeah and tons of hippies. I had no idea it was going on until a friend called me up and asked if i wanted to grab a beer and listen to some good music, of course I was in. Since we are all about riding bikes, every one met at my house in the sierra tract and our bike posse was off to the Tallac Brewing Co.

First things first- - beer. We had two options blonde or amber and with no questions asked we all went for the blonde with a 8% alcohol content.
