My home town: Seattle
Hello everydog! By popular demand, I have posted a few pictures to show you all my home town. Seattle is home to several dog parks, and of course home to Pugapalooza. There are also some big buildings, and lots of water.

Here is what I humbly believe is the best thing about Seattle. Yes, it's me. I don't know how this city survived before July 8, 2006. I do know it has thrived ever since that day.

From, (c) Nick Gunderson. This is the skyline of Seattle and that is Mount Ranier in the background.

From, (c) Nick Gunderson . This the world famous Pike's Place market where anydog can buy numerous types of dead fish and cheese.

From, (c) Nick Gunderson. This is a picture from the space needle I think.

My dog park, called Magnuson park.
From This is the beach where I play and it is apparently the only beach in Seattle where you can legally let Dogs and Pugs roam free.

Here is the cutest pug ever to grace the presence of Magnuson Park. People still constantly oooo and awwww and the presence of this random pug (me).

Here is the cutest pug ever to go swimming at Magnuson Park. I am patiently reminding those big dogs to get their ball so their human will throw it again and I can chase them into the water.

Here is my human cousin Luke's friend from school, named Flat Stanley. Flat Stanley was a normal boy until he was squished flat by his bookcase. Now that he is flat, he can fit into envelopes and his humans send him all over the country to visit cool places, like Seattle. My Mommy took Flat Stanley to the Pike's Place Market, where they have TONS of fresh food, flowers, and especially fish. The people who work at the fish place throw the fish around to each other to impress the tourists. I have not personally been to Pike's Place Market.

Here are Qwest field where the Seahawks play (with the white roof), and SafeCo field where the Mariners play. That's Mt. Rainier in the background.

Here is the view from my house. [Parent's Note: kind of...this is the view from the hill by our house. If you drive up the hill north about 3 blocks and turn around, you see this view.]

Here is a picture from one of Mommy and Daddy's favorite restaurants. I have not personally been here either. I am seeing a trend here.

This is an elephant at the Seattle zoo. Again, I have not personally been to the Seattle zoo. I think I ought to be able to go, it looks basically like a dog park, and that grey dog looks very interesting.

Here I am drinking Starbucks. You can't have a post about Seattle without shamelessly advertising Starbucks.

Here is my favorite place to be in Seattle: the couch. Here I am on Mommy's lap...

...but I am just as happy to lay on the couch by myself.

Snarf everydog later,

Oh how I miss Seattle! You also forgot to mention that Seattle is very dog friendly and allows them on public transport!

Seattle looks like fun! I wish I had a beach to go to.

Hey Winston! I love Seattle. I actually almost attended the UW, or, as all the cool kids say, "U-Dub".

I can't wait to take weekend trips up there once we're in Eugene. Thanks for showing the pics, and tell your parents they're very wise to give credit on those pics. Laywers..hehe!

I love Seattle. You are a lucky pug to get to live there!

Thank you Winston for all the great pix of Seattle. It looks like a very beautiful place for a pug to grow up.

We think Seattle is the most beautiful city in the world. Then again, it's the only city we have ever seen, so we don't have much to compare it with.
