November updates

What happened to this year’s Halloween costumes?
Preston and Nolan were supposed to go out as lion brothers according to Mommy’s plan.
well… It didn’t work out. Nolan had a lot of “opinions” about his costume.

Preston is always a good sport.

The lion outfits didn’t work out but Nolan agreed to be a little black bear and Preston put on his Halloween bandana.

Mommy took both Preston and Nolan out to the Halloween event in town ALL BY HERSELF because it was an afternoon event and daddy had to work. It wasn’t easy to push the stroller and at the same time keep Preston in control on the street full of KIDS (in their Dark Vader outfits, Vampire face paint or hairy monster suits). Preston only managed to make a little “cowboy” cry. 🙂

A few weeks ago, Mommy and Daddy took Nolan on a week-long vacation. Sadly, Preston wasn’t able to go. It always stressed Mommy and Daddy out to have to find Preston a new sitter when they moved to a new place even though they have had good luck in finding great people/boarding facility to take care of Preston in the past. Mommy started her search for a perfect sister way before the vacation. There are some nice dog hotels in Portland but Mommy and Daddy thought Preston would be much happier in a home-setting. Mommy went looking for help on a website she discovered during her What a great idea is! Check it out if you need a sitter for your fur babies or you are interested in being a sitter.
Mommy found Ladan and Andrew on They are truly the greatest dog sitters. Preston came home a very happy puggle. What a relief for Mommy and Daddy.

Guess where mommy, daddy and Nolan went for the vacation?

Final hint- the state bird of this State in the U.S. is called Nene.

Have a very safe and wonderful turkey day!

  2. Love to see updates and pictures of Nolan and Preston. Nolan is looking like a little boy (instead of toddler) with each updated post!

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, particularly, you Preston!
