Goodbye to a Great Dog

My dear friend's dog, Moonlight, passed away this weekend. Moonie was a great family dog, a loyal companion, and possibly part Wookie. You will be deeply missed, Moonlight.

Alnwick gardens

At the garden and the castle in Alnwick, Northumberland, England

Appropriately called Sunnyside Up


Looking up

The only fountain without scads of children splashing about..a hot day
A magic door

Edinburgh

Out and about this lovely city
It's the Fringe festival crowds and high season for tourists


Sword swallower outside of the museum

Cool heads ruling in the museum but it's wild around town

A little more Vermont

Best movie theatre and terrific restaurant.  Waitsfield, The Big Picture.
Noontime bear sighting on Bragg Hill
Yes, we were thrilled (and happily in my car)
Very happy to see nature from my car when nature is a bear (who looks small here but was not at all)
Of course this trash monster in Burlington was pretty alarming too :)

Always a beautiful spot in Warren to relax
And a shop in Waitsfield that is straight out of a fairy tale.

Vermont


Evening on Bragg Hill


A light drizzle at the swimming hole

Bless the beasties


Snaps of the less glamorous critters in the pet supply store...
Sad faced ferret


Guinea Pig with deep thoughts

And not so deep...

Noses 
And 
Toeses 

Rodents wig me out but still I like their delicate feet, whiskery mugs, like this cutie, a hamster the sign said...


And this guy

Hope they all find good homes.

Dress your dog like a Wookie



So he can summon his or her inner Chewbacca.

Seriously, they have this. 


As the husband was buying dog food, I meandered about. 

There is a whole Stars Wars themed section. I know people who will be driving over there upon learning this. Geeks rule.





"Do. Or do not. There is no try."
