Carmel Trip

We spent the last weekend in lovely Carmel-by-the-sea and Kargo had a great time, as she always does. I didn't take many photos this time, but I did capture this great shot of Kargo on the beach standing by this interesting seaweed beach sculpture.

Kargo and the souvenir toy

Here's a nice photo of Kargo posed in a lady-like way next to one of her favorite squeaky toys, which is a pig that sounds like a duck. We bought the toy as a souvenir from our recent trip to Iceland, but it's from a Danish doodad company called Flying Tiger. We named the toy "LiLou" after the San Francisco "celebriswine" LiLou The Pig.

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.
