we're back from our tiny trip- it was very fun. it was the first time we have taken the dogs with us on vacation. we found lots of fun swimming spots (the water was so cold but they didn't seem to mind at all) and temps were in the 70's! we also popped into the mountains a bit where they experienced their first snow and loved that too. bernie kept sinking down but he'd pop back up like a rabbit. they were so tired last night they didn't even bark every time a car door shut at the hotel. i couldn't ask for much more than that.
