On Vacation

We are off to Long Beach, WA for vacation. We rent the same house every year, dog friendly, secluded on the oceanfront.



Five kids (10, 13, 15, 17, 22 y/o - feel my pain). Four dogs, one truck, one SUV, ear plugs and lots of Tylenol.



Doggie Heaven



Chuck-it Paradise




Frisbee Nirvana

Katie's favorite place. We haven't been back since she crossed the bridge. I am bringing her ashes and will be spreading in the surf tomorrow morning.

It is time to let her go...rejoin the earth where her paws were warmed by the sand. Where I remember her smiling in contentment...at peace in heaven.

It does sound like a paradise. How truly special to be able to take Katie's ashes and spread them where she loved to be. A very fitting final resting place.

How bittersweet - we went through a very similar experience a few years ago. My thoughts are with you.

Aww. What a fitting way to send Katie off. Every year she will be there, waiting to meet up with you.

What a huge beach! Even bigger than some of ours. The best place for Katie to be.

Have a great holiday.
