Way Back Wednesday ~ Our Dog

On Sunday we celebrated our five year anniversary of rescuing our black Labrador Retriever.
I’m still stumped why any Lab has to be “rescued”.
Why any Lab would be in a shelter in the first place.
And the shelter in South Los Angeles…
It’s beyond me.
I get why there are pit bulls.
Spay & neuter your fighting dogs “pets” people!
I get why there are Chihuahuas.
Yap, yap, yap.
But I just don’t understand why Labradors are in shelters.
But that’s just me.
Long story short.
She was skinny.
Had big bald spots.
Punctures.
Bite marks.
And she was nervous and scared.
But oh so trusting!

Bald spots. Bite marks. But those eyes!

We took her out sailing the next weekend.
What were we thinking…?

Street dog with no boat sense.

Five years of loving on this face.
Long walks.
Lots of hair.
Everywhere…

A hundred kisses a day.

Wouldn’t trade it!

My girl.

Spay.
Neuter.
Rescue.
And if you have a few extra dollars, there are loads of amazing rescue organizations that need help.

Los Alamos Campground ~ Gorman, CA ~ A Campground Fav!

And needing to head back home, we needed a place for the night.
Moon Guide comes out!
The search begins.
Ohhh not expensive.
Not an RV park.
Dump station!
An hour and a half from home.
This works!
A new favorite stop on the I5.
Perfect for our first night out.
Or our last night headed home.
This WORKS!

Way Back Wednesday ~ Kentucky Bourbon Trail

Somewhat way back…
Well five years ago, which to a child or dog is a way back…
We were in Kentucky!
Doing “the Kentucky Bourbon Trail”!
Drive around the beautiful and historical Bardstown area to five different distilleries.
Take a tour.
Learn a lot about bourbon, prohibition and the local history.
Oh, and take a little taste at the end.
A taste I usually took a tiny sip out of then handed over to my husband…
Just a quick glimpse.

Beautiful Kentucky.

What a difference in ages…

Inviting Jim Beam.
