Hi Everybody,

The Mendocino Area Parks Association annual BIG fundraiser is happening this Saturday, October 11, 2014.

The Abalone Festival and World Champion Cook-off is great fun with live entertainment, a lot of food and drinks and all sorts of fun stuff!  The best thing is that you can attend for free.

Not only that but this year farm raised Abalone will be available so everyone can have some (see flyer below for details). Dad gave me a little piece of Abalone once and I loved it even though I have no idea what it is… (Dillon is known to eat first and ask questions later).

OK, well I hope you can go, all the details are in the flyer below. The only bummer is that pets are not allowed, not even me. I said I would be good and stay on my leash if I could go but NOOOOOOO. Someday dogs will find equal treatment and respect in this world, just not now I guess.

Thanks for reading my blog, I have to go have dinner now.

PS, Dad said he will be at the Mendocino Area Parks Association booth so he hopes you will stop by and see him even though I will not be with him.

Wow, I almost Forgot to Tell Everyone about this great Concert at the Light Station!

Hi Everyone,

Another concert is being held at the light station this week and I almost forgot to tell you about it. Dad would say I am having a senior moment whatever that means.

Anyway here is information about the concert, you better hurry and buy tickets as these concerts seem to always sell out. Dad, mom and I have been to one and they are special. Just know that most dogs cannot attend, just me (Dillon wants us to never forget he is special however, he did leave before the concert actually began). You can buy tickets by calling 707-937-6123.

If you have not got your tickets yet better hurry, it is very special to see a concert at the light station and a great way to end the day after visiting the Abalone Festival in Fort Bragg!

I’m BAAAACK!

Hi Everybody,

Gosh, it has been a long time since I last posted anything. I think maybe I was suffering from carpal paw (more likely it was a creative block). Anyway, I am back now and will try to post on a regular basis again.

So much has happened since I last wrote. One neat thing is that I went on vacation and spent 3 weeks with my friend Jack and his family. Mom and Dad were going on vacation and they could not take me so they let me go on vacation too. I had a great time, I really enjoy Jack’s back yard a lot. There are so many things to smell and places to mark, it is really fun. The rest of the time I have been just hanging around, napping, eating, chasing birds, the sort of thing most of us dogs do.

I do not have a lot of news to share about events or whatever except don’t forget this weekend is Paul Bunyan days in Fort Bragg.

OK, thanks for reading my blog and sorry about not being around for so long.

Hi Everybody,

Wow, what a busy time here on the Mendocino Coast! Here is yet another event that will be taking place this weekend at MacKerricher State Park. As my regular readers know I love seals a lot. Dad and I have been on these walks and I really enjoyed them (mostly because his nose has a field day with all the smells in the air, it is fun for people too and very educational). 

 

 

This is always a fun informative experience.

Progressive Dinner to Support the Ford House in Mendocino

Hi Everybody,

Every year the Ford House sponsors something called a progressive dinner to help support all the good things the Ford House does and to keep it looking nice. I am not sure what a progressive dinner is but Dad says it is really fun and that you walk to different places and eat. I guess I have a progressive dinner almost everyday when Dad and I go for a walk. We stop at the Ford House and I get a treat. Then we go to the bank and I get a treat. Then we  to this other place and I get a treat. If the Ford House Progressive dinner is anything like what I do it has to be fun (It is a lot of fun and supports a great cause, hope you can make it)!

Here are the details:

If you want to go just click here and make your reservations now. Or you can call 707-937-5397 for more information and to make reservations. I cannot go but Dad and Mom will be there, hope you will too.

Thanks for reading my blog,
