South Umpqua River

South Umpqua River, Oregon 
&  Dog Water Safety

Being new to Southern Oregon I asked my cousin to show me some good swimming spots for the dogs, while I was thinking of finding some fun new local haunts he had a different idea in mind - the ultimate swimming spot!

Always together.
South Umpqua Falls is a gorgeous natural rock water slide, while that sounds rather painful it's actually fun! People bring their inner-tubes and other floaty devices and go sliding!

Things That Go Bump In The Night.


So last night as usual right before bed it was time to take the dogs out. Since we have tons of wildlife surrounding where we live, and no fences.. we started taking the dogs out one at a time to keep closer tabs on them.

It was Ziva's turn in this case to go first. I opened the door with my flashlight *no outdoor area lights either*, stepped outside Ziva following behind me. She passed in front of me and we both rounded the corner as I instructed her to go potty, when.... "BOW, WOW, WOW!!" And she jumped back into me as I stumbled over backwards hollering, "Woah!!" Grabbing her collar, both of us nearly falling as she dragged me right back into our camper trailer home.

"RUN!! It's a monster!!!"
I paused long enough to listen and look for a monster but didn't see anything with my flashlight.
I think the conversation that followed was something like this.

Suspicious Eyes.

"Private Eyes, Are Watching You, 
They See Your Every Move..."
*I know you sang that line in your head.*

Dante and Ziva have really been great throughout this whole move, they've made Dz Dog Dad and myself super proud!

They are learning to be flexible in their environments, for example eating in different locations a.k.a. "not home". Although we've now got a consistent routine back for them. Being left behind at our new home is another new thing they've been dealing with- so far no returning separation anxiety *paws crossed on this one!*

Southern Oregon!

The Saga Continues..

For those of you following our story, and to update any new readers - we did it! I finally made the move to Southern Oregon with the pups to be with Dz Dog Dad.

In case you missed it, we had to move due to Dz Dad's job, but we're in this weird situation where we are purchasing land to build a home so we're kind of in limbo. 

While we wait for our property to close (hopefully it will be finalized in August!) I've been helping my parents do demolition on my grandparents old house (don't worry they got a brand new one!), and Dz Dog Dad has been living in our trailer on a friend's property in Southern Oregon. Living so far apart hasn't been fun for anyone, but the demo is nearly done on my grandparents property so I made the move to be closer to the hubby again. We missed him! And only seeing him on weekends really sucked, either he would drive up to help out on the house demolition, or I would drive down to see him.

But now we're together again as a family! And we're finding a lot of cool new places to take the dogs. *Traveling With Large Dogs HERE*

Traveling With Large Dogs.

My Public Awaits Me.

Life After Our Move.

It's been crazy! What else can I say!
And like previously mentioned in our last post: "ZiwiPeak For Adventure Dogs!"    Treats and games have been our saving grace since we've been taking the dogs nearly everywhere with us.

Did you know La Quinta has no breed restrictions!
