Alfie the Ewok

Last weekend we spent the majority of our time re-watching Star Wars movies. We watched episodes 4-6 (the first three), and I gotta be honest: totally fell asleep during the first one (episode 4). Some parts of it were boring! I couldn’t help it.

In honour of the new Star Wars film coming out, I thought I’d show you Alfie dressed up as one of my favourite characters from the film: Ewoks!

POM Friday is back!

Many people requested I bring Pomeranian Friday’s back — where I feature our 6 year old bossy boots Pomeranian, named Alfie. I’m sure you’re all aware of who he is, because for over half a year I blogged about his antics each Friday.

Here he is getting up to no good, hanging out underneath our ottoman in the living room. The little pillow next to him actually isn’t him! My friend back home in Newfoundland saw it, and bought it for me — doesn’t it look just like Alfie?!

Have a good weekend guys!

Santa Clara University // POM Friday

Santa-Clara-headerWe never stop exploring. I think that’s what keeps me excited about living here in California. There is just so much to see, and do — and luckily most everything seems to be quite dog friendly.

Santa-Clara-Uni-fountainAlfie is our little buddy (his name is NOT buddy for those leaving comments haha!) and we take him almost every adventure we go on. This time, I explored the Santa Clara University campus on the 4th of July weekend while my husband cycled down in Santa Cruz.

Walkways-in-Santa-Clara-UniConsidering it was a long weekend, add in the fact it’s summer break and you have a secluded almost eerie feeling University campus. I left Alfie off the leash for a bit of it, since it was all walk-ways, no roads, and zero pedestrian traffic. Perfect time to snap some shots!

Alfie-and-flowersPretty sure Alfie loves a bit of freedom from time to time, so being off leash he’s a little happy boy! Look at him sitting up on that bench like he owns the place. Ha!

Mission-Santa-Clara-doorsIf it wasn’t such a scorcher of a day, I’d spend a little more time here. All we could both bear was about 30 minutes and my face was sweating, and Alfie’s tongue was half way down to the ground. Lil’ fella needed to head home and get some water.

I’ll let the rest of the photos do the talking. Hope you enjoyed this week’s Pomeranian Friday. I try to post about Alfie’s adventures once a week. But sometimes we run out of time, or don’t go anywhere in particular. But clearly this day was one to be captured — and I took an abundance of photos. Yay!

Horse-statueI’m going to take a wild guess and assume that the sign “Do not climb. Under video surveillance” was put there for good reason. I can imagine University students being a little tipsy and gettin’ up and giv’ner on the horse. Ya knows now.

Santa-Clara-UniProbably one of my favourite photos of Alfie, of all time.
