Portland Blog- This Week in Portland November 28 - December 5

Hey Portland,



Had a great Thanksgiving and hope you did as well. Family, friends, hounds and pounds and pounds of food. Two desserts should fully explain the whole tragic tale!



What a gorgeous Black Friday. I didn't spend a dime (if you don't count coffee, gas and dinner) and had a wonderful day enjoying the gift of this incredible weather. I went for a looooooong run and took to Basset's to the dog friendly Overlook Park where we had a blast running with insane Afghan… Continue

Portland PET CHARITY makes final rounds of Rachel Ray - NEED YOUR VOTES!!!

Hey fine people & pet lovers of Portland!



I was going to post this in the Pet-friendly group, but figured it goes well beyond that grouping as it's a cause that affects Portlanders in general, not just pet lovers.



Project POOCH is only 2 rounds away from winning $50,000 in Rachael Ray's Mutt Madness but we need your help to make it to the finals.

Portland Blog- This Week in Portland November 21 - 28

Ah, its only a few days away now: Thanksgiving! Here's hoping you have something fun planned and get a day or two to relax and enjoy the holiday with family and friends. I'm hoping for a nice bird, a relaxing day and some time at the dog park with my crazy hounds.



And now because it is suddenly so obviously winter (brrrr!), here are some Portland home winterizing tips:



Check your downspouts and drains to make sure water is draining properly. If necessary, clean your… Continue

Portland Blog - This Week in Portland - November 7-14, 2009

I can hardly believe we are at the end of the first week in November already...my, how time flies. I need to get out and put the "Moss Out" on the lawn. My white picket fence and arbor is already turning green, and my rose bushes need a winter trim. And I already forgot to plant flower bulbs for next spring, and now it is soggy and wet outside so I may not get to that at all this year. I was shopping in Fred Meyer on Halloween looking for a last minute costume and was horrified to discover… Continue
