Spring Carmel-by-the-Sea Visit

Last weekend, we took Kargo along for our spring weekend trip to Carmel-by-the-sea. The most exciting time for us, and for Kargo, was the deer encounter in Pacific Grove. The deer kept approaching to get closer and closer but we were too afraid to let them actually meet nose to nose. The deer followed us along for a couple of blocks before giving up after stopping traffic a bit. It turns out that deer are quite common in the city streets there.

Here we are on our hike in Garland Ranch, overlooking one of the views. This is a great place for off-leash hiking. Unfortunately, she did pick up a tick from that hike, but we have the great Tick Twister tool for removing ticks.

And of course, a trip to Carmel must include a trip or two to the beach.

Kargo's faux hawk

I thought I would share these photos of Kargo's fur coloration. She's a mix of German shepherd, Swiss white shepherd, labrador, and saint bernard, and it some ways, it looks like her fur never got mixed! The top of her back is a sleek black and the sides have a sharp delineation that looks like she's been shaved.

New Year's Day Hike

These are a couple of photos from New Year's Day, when we took Kargo along on a hike up to Mission Peak in the east bay. Here she is along the hiking path. The next photo shows a surreal view from the top of Mission Peak. It was super crowded, but looking over the clouds and fog makes it look other-worldly and serene.

Happy Holidays!

Kargo and her hoomans wish you all a happy holiday season and a happy 2018!

This photo was taken at Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, in front of this shrub which gets decorated every year with odd ornaments contributed by the public.

Dogs walking

I haven't posted much about Kargo the dog lately, but she's been very much alive and active, active, active. This is a photo of her walking along with two dogs belonging to a neighbor. The small one is Sencha and the taller one is Agave. Kargo is sporting her holiday neck wear.

Carmel by-the-sea

We recently took a short trip to lovely Carmel by-the-sea, and of course Kargo came along because Carmel is super dog friendly. The first photo shows her on our walk along Scenic Rd. overlooking the blue Pacific ocean. This next photo shows her posing on the beach.

While strolling through the town, I spotted this lovely macaw that just spends its time perched outside its owner's shop watching the world go by, eating, and uttering the occasional loud squawk.

Kargo on the SFMuni!

News Flash! Kargo recently took her first SFMuni ride! Last weekend, we walked to ocean beach and then took the SFMuni for the return trip. We decided it was time for Kargo to learn to ride on public transport. She did quite well. We were worried that she wouldn't want to get on the bus, but that was not an issue. At first, she hid under the long seats, but after a short while, she stuck her head out a bit more.
