sleeping beauty, fetching furball

This is probably nothing new, but since we moved to Washington I’ve been home a lot more during the day and I’ve noticed Kona spends a lot of time doing this (post continues below):

That’s our sleeping beauty. She even dreams in this position, complete with growling, yelping and twitching.

But if she’s not chasing bunnies in dreamland, she’s playing fetch in the house. All. Day. Long. She’s always loved playing fetch indoors, but the open floor plan of Kona’s new “castle” has taken her favorite game to a whole new level. Between the hardwood floors and the hallway that runs the length of the house, we have the perfect “fetching alley.” (post continues below)


While all this fetching can sometimes be quite tiresome, it is giving us a chance to practice the “drop” command. Kona now reliably drops whatever she’s fetching to keep the game going.

We have other options for exercise, too. The weather has been outstanding the past few weeks, with sunshine and temperatures around 75 degrees almost every day, so we’ve been taking LOTS of walks (including plenty of steep hills). But the extra effort is worth the views. (post continues below)

This photo pretty well sums things up – trees, mountains and even a view of the bay where it meets a cute little downtown area. What more could we ask for?

I just think I’ll need to keep this picture handy when the rainy season starts in a couple months.



  1. The house looks nice! I can’t wait to see it! Glad Kona is enjoying the new crib too!

    • Thanks! Can’t wait for you to come visit!
