Après Play


Lupikona looked happy after running around a lot outside.

When I saw them up close…

Kona had a little pine needle on her face.


Lupita always has mud splashed on her face from running behind Kona. Shall we go straight to the bathroom when we get home?

Old House Cafe


A café opened on a street along our daily walk.


The café is located in an old village house built about 160 years ago.


It has a beautiful tree swing.


This is the view looking up from the swing.


“I want to leave before Yumi tries to put me on the swing… ”


“How does it taste, Scott?”


The café is called Village Club.

Sunday Walk in the Woods


In the woods. Three happy animals.


“Yumi?”


What’s in the bush?

A shot of something heart shaped from today’s walk.

Young wild fiddleheads.

Waiting Up II

This picture is from an old blog about 1 year ago…

Lupikona waiting for me on the stairs up to the bedroom.

These days, they often don’t wait for me and go straight up to the bedroom. But…


last night they waited for me just like they used to.


Did they care about me because Scott was out of town last night?

Tree Climbing Dog

My blog friend’s dog, Sarah, likes sitting in a tall tree.

Lupita tried to copy her doggie idol, Sarah.

Wow! Has Lupita finally become a tree climbing dog too?

No, actually…


she was just above the ground!

Lost Toy


A toy rolled under the cabinet.


Lupita reached under and tried to get it. Can she reach it?


“No, I can’t. Yumi, can you get it for me, please?”

Peeping Froggy


Lupita found a frog peeping through our window.


“Ooh!” Lupita tried to touch it, but she couldn’t.


“Sniff,sniff…” Lupita tried to smell it, but she couldn’t.


“Hi there, froggy. Do you want to come inside?”

Tip of Her Tail


The tip of Lupita’s tail is white.


She was curling up on the white blanket.


Doesn’t this tickle her nose?

Valentine’s Day


Although we did nothing special for Valentine’s Day, when we went for our usual walk with Lupikona...


I found some heart-shaped leaves.


Happy Valentine’s day!

White Towel Dog Union

Lupikona participated in an event where people took photos of their dogs wearing a white towel on their heads. The event was organized by my blog friend, Wan-san.


All of the dogs indulged their owners by participating. All of the dogs look so adorable.

Lupikona during the photo shoot.

“Hey Yumi, why am I wearing these towels?”
“You look good, Lupita. Look at the camera.”


“Hey Yumi, I’m posing for you. Don’t miss the perfect shot!”
“Oh Kona, your ear is sticking out. I need to re-wrap the towel again.”

Thanks for your cooperation, Lupikona!

Thanks for organizing this, Wan-san!

Passing by a Cow

On our usual morning walk path.


There was a black cow at the top of the stone steps.


It lives in the wild but it is gentle, so…

Lupikona and I passed by it like this. (Click ▸ to play)

Birthday Card

I made a card for Scott’s birthday. When you flip and open the card, the different pictures appear one after another.


Lupikona and I are on the front.


When you flip it, you can see Kona. Lupita’s ears are peeking out from underneath. Oops, this was a design mistake!


When you flip it again, you can see Lupita.


And then when you flip it again, there is a picture of Lupikona and a note from me.


Lupikona displaying their congratulatory smiles when I took this photo on the morning of Scott’s birthday.

Happy Birthday, Scott!
