SEIZE THE LEASH

I had the wonderful opportunity today to visit the new and wicked cool digs of my friends over at Seize the Leash. They have recently set up an agility course in their new location. Today's class featured 6 cute dogs that had a great time playing, working and building confidence by trying and conquering new situations. Best of all I got to hang out with a Whippet. I wanted to say a mini-greyhound, but when you look at it from his point of view, a greyhound could be an over-sized Whippet. He was adorable. As were the other dogs in class, including two ;lovely TBDs (Tucson Brown Dogs) and a deaf boxer. I, of course, had my camera out, since I was dogless and spent my time chasing the class participants over the course. I will tell you, I am really looking forward to bringing the girls over to try out all the equipment.

The lovely Beachcomber restaurant in Malibu. Mmmmm, tasty. It was too cold to eat outside, but we ended up with a fantastic booth overlooking the water.

PHOTO FOR THE DAY

While in California last month I had the opportunity to stay at the Los Angeles Biltmore in downtown LA. HOLY COW! That place is a piece of art. Every step you take there is a new archway, mural, filigree, column, chandelier, passageway. Marble tile flooring. Stunning paintings. Detailed ceilings. Impressive woodwork. The building is just gorgeous. We walked in the lobby and I came to a screeching halt.

A little chain reaction formed. My sister bumped into me. "Bubba, the front desk is a little further." My niece, ever so graceful, side-stepped both of us. The bellman thankfully was lagging a bit behind and managed to bring the luggage trolley to a stop just before clipping any heels.

"I have to get my camera out." I whispered as I turned to accost the bellman with our mountain of bags on the bowing trolley.

"Can you please wait until we are checked in?" I wasn't sure if I picked up a hint of mortification at my gaping or exhaustion from the 11 hour travel day. I waffled between pressing forward and returning to get my camera bag before caving in and heading to the puzzled woman at the front desk. See this is what happens when I put my camera away.

I was as antsy as a kid in line for a carnival ride, but I managed to wait until we and our luggage had been ushered to our room before grabbing my camera and heading right back our to explore.
