A Short Trip


The cherry blossoms were beautiful.

Mt. Fuji was beautiful.

And the sunset was beautiful.

We came to Izu with Lupikona.

Size of a Coin

It has been a week since Kona began dermatological treatment.

Hmm… the bald spot is still noticeable.

Lily on the Riverbank

There are three happy tails.

We invited Lily to Lupikona’s home ground, the riverbank.

Little Lily walked a lot together with Lupikona.

Well, it’s time to have a little rest. Kona and Lily were…

clinging to Scott. Lupita stood guard.

Lily looked up at Scott as if to say “Thank you, Scott.”

No matter how hard Lupita tried, she still can’t catch a Frisbee.

She can chase it and pick it up off of the ground though…

“It’s so much fun!”

A Night Walk

Even if I come home late, we never skip a walk.

The dogs posed for my blog in the dark. Thanks, girls!

In the Waiting Room

I took Kona to an animal hospital for her little skin problem.

Since Kona experienced two surgeries last year, just being treated for skin is as easy as pie for her.

She relaxed easily on the floor.

Walking in the Park

On Sunday, after lunch in a café…

we walked in the park.

On the right, left and behind Scott, the three dogs tended to keep a proper distance from each other.

Once in a while they marched closely together.

We saw Japanese apricots beginning to bloom.


Sunday, January 19, 2014


We went to a café with Lupikona and Lily.

Little Lily was on a chair.

Big Lupita was at my feet.

Kona prefers to be under the table. But sometimes…

Doggie Greeting

Lily met a cute Schnauzer.

The right way for dogs to greet each other is to sniff the other dogs’ bottom. Well done, Lily.

She takes pleasure in…

walking and it makes her…

When You Feel Cold

It’s very cold today. So Lupita went for a…


And she dashed!

Made a turn and…

“Now I'm all warmed up!”
