We 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.
Alfie 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.
Considering 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!
I’m not entirely sure what Santa Clara University is known for, but I’m going to guess Law School, and Engineering.
Pretty 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!
If 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.
Alfie just taking in the views! Is it a dogs life, or what.
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!
I’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.
Probably one of my favourite photos of Alfie, of all time.
He loves the “Alfie — COME!” command. Look at that smile as he runs to me full belt.
Beautiful water feature with those huge palm trees in the back. Perfection man.
