Furry Portraits

Here are some furry portraits from our outing at the Marymoor dog park. It was very interesting to sit and observe the expressions from all the different dogs. If only we could tell what they were thinking —  then again, maybe not. I’m sure they probably think we humans are a strange breed.

The first two furry kids belong to me, Maximus and Ms. Evie.

Maximus the wonder dog. A loyal companion who understands over 60 commands and words, love to play sports, and will  wipe his paws before entering the house.

Ms. Evie, the designer dog. She is a foodie consultant who loves to taste test all types of cuisine. And knows how to beg  get what she wants with her sad puppy eyes.

Here is another designer dog, the Golden-doodle (a combination of a golden retriever and a poodle) with the best looking hairdo prize.

Alvis and Me

I remember the first time I saw Alvis from my cafe window across the street. He was sitting in the music store looking so gorgeous. It was love at first sight.

After a few days of staring and day dreaming, I decided to be brave and make the first move. As soon as the clock hit 3:00 pm, I put the “Sorry, We Are Closed” sign on the cafe door and ran across the street to meet him. After a cup of coffee and few questions later, I paid the finder’s fee and took him home with me. I knew Alvis and I were going to play beautiful music together for many years to come.

Unfortunately, the music  part didn’t happen as I had hoped. My relationship with Alvis was a struggle from the start. I’ve tried self-help books and paid for the counseling of music making experts. But nothing could help my lack of musical harmony with Alvis. In the end, I realized that I’m not very musically inclined. Although disappointed, I still have hope that with patience and time —  someday my musical talent will emerge.  😉
