December 22, 2008, Bellevue, Dog-Skijoring Video
« on: 12/22/08, 09:48 PM »

My two alaskan malamutes Luna and Sasha and I had so much fun yesterday I decided to go on a more adventurous tour of lovely Bellevue today.  We went from my house up to Crossroads Mall via 156th, then down NE 8th which is a long and fun hill.  Then back up 148th home.  About 4-5 miles round trip.

We almost caused a few accidents. People would slow down to take a photo of us as they drove by, much to the consternation of the drivers behind them.  My poor tele-skis suffered in a few spots, but they will survive.

Check out the video I made when I got back.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rLckjpzHJg

I really enjoyed the video.

It's ok, I used to think the same thing about Bellevue and I didn't take it personally at all.  It was kinda funny actually!  I lived in Ballard for 5 years, then way in the woods in Snoqualmie on 5 acres for years while my dogs were young.  But I moved back closer to the city for work and needed a house with a big enough yard for my monsters. I couldn't find one in Seattle that would rent to me with two 90 pound dogs!  I hear coyotes here, see deer, red tail hawks and other wild life. This is an awesome neighborhood, but I didn't know it till I moved here.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
