Wish You Were Here!

I'm sitting in the Lincoln City Starbucks which offers free wifi, so I'm able to do a little updating.  We had a great visit with Bandit's breeders, Jamie and Dean, on our way down here.  Bandit got to have some quality time with his Mama Gracie, though Papa Joey is quite protective of his home and family so wasn't up for meeting his son.

We discovered that Bandit is actually slightly larger than his Mama.  She weighs around 30 pounds and Bandit weighs 33.
I'm so disappointed this particular picture is blurry.  It's so cute because when Bandit was let into the puppy play area with his siblings they all came over to check out their big brother.  I love how they're all so inquisitive and interested in him.
"I'm having such a good time I can't contain my excitement!"
There aren't a ton of people down here this time of year (we usually come in August) so Bandit's been lucky enough to have tons of off-leash romp time.  He's been quite good with his recall.
Hanging with T
Showing off his amazing "Flippy Flopper" skills.  Bandit really catches some great height when he jumps, and he's great at catching.  He loves to bring it back to us for another throw.
Posing for Mama
"That's far enough, Bandit.  Wait for us."
Doing a little rock climbing
"I hope you've enjoyed my vacation update.  I'll try to add more soon."

Hi Bandit-
We go there too. We rent a house by the Roads End Park. We like to hike down to the end of the beach and look at the starfish on the rocks. Mom also likes the store with all the kitchen stuff by Safeway! hehe
Looks like you are having a great time. You are a pawesome catcher!

Awesome pictures! I love the beach shots. He's a GREAT frisbee catcher....how fun. I can't believe the beach is so empty. How nice to have it all to yourselves. That's a really good picture of T and Bandit. I'm so glad you are all having such a great vacation. I forgot to tell you that F LOVED is Pho soup. He had it for breakfast and couldn't believe all the good spices in it.
Love you guys!
