Pet sitting in Issaquah

Last week I was pet sitting in a beautiful, wooded area of Issaquah.  Every day I took the dogs for a walk along the country road, onto a wooded path and into an open park.

Nice open area for the dogs in the middle of the forest

All the luxuries of home in the forest 🙂

Of course all the while the cats are relaxing at home!

Ahh, the life of a cat!

During the time I was in Issaquah the Salmon Days Festival was on so I decided to go into town and check it out.  Issaquah’s Salmon Days celebrates the returning of the salmon every year.  Wow, do they ever put on a great festival!  They actually close down the main streets of town and turn the entire downtown into a huge street fair.

There are four stages with continuous music of all kinds, all free of charge.  I opted to listen to a really good country music band called Latigo Lace.

Besides the food fair, arts & crafts, childrens area with camel and pony rides, the fish hatchery exhibit, salmon barbeque, parade, and all the other “thrills & gills”, I was really happy to see a booth with several beautiful Greyhounds.  Greyhound Pets, Inc. was educating people on Greyhounds and promoting the adoption of them as well as handing out brocures explaining all about the breed.  If you’re interested in adopting, volunteering, or donating to GPI, you can contact them at PO Box 891, Woodinville, WA 98072, call them at 877-468-7681 or check out their website at

As I was leaving town to head back to my charges, I even got to see several paragliders landing.  What a fun day in Issaquah!
