Wallace and Yuki had met briefly at the SPCA when Alisa and her daughter first went to visit her after seeing her photo on the SPCA website. Yuki has only been with her new family for just under a week, so her play date with Wallace today was her first play date since she's been in her new home!!
Wallace and Yuki got along great!! At first, they were both do excited and happy, that it made Yuki too distracted to walk well on leash. Alisa and I thought it best to separate them for a few blocks, and after we did that, Yuki did much better and was much more calm.
We stopped for a yummy lunch at Cassva, one of Alisa's favorite local restaurants. The two dogs did really well! Yuki is a cuddly little lap dog, and it was obvious that she is bonded to Alisa already. So sweet.
Both dogs did really well on their walk back to Alisa's house, where we all went to play in their backyard. Wallace and Yuki played really well together, but Yuki got pretty tired, and maybe even a little overstimulated, so they eventually tuckered out and rested.
It was great fun spending the afternoon together. Wallace and I are looking forward to many more play dates with Yuki and Alisa!
We also stopped at the beach so they could see the Pacific Ocean. Adrianne said the last time she touched it was with her Uncle Dick when she was much younger.

I first noticed these chocolate chip cookies at Costco's bakery a few weeks ago. I really wanted to try them, but couldn't justify buying six large cookies.
We have family visiting this week, and having a game night with five of us in total. Perfect reason to buy the Costco cookies!!
Okay, here's the thing: I love a good chocolate chip cookie. I especially love big, thick, warm soft chocolate chip cookies with good chocolate.
The box that they came in had reheat instructions for both the microwave and oven. I decided to use the oven directions which was to bake them for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. They came out great! Warm, soft and gooey, with perfectly melted chocolate.
When we were in the Seattle area, I was introduced to "The Cookie" from Metropolitan Market, which were always served warm, and quickly became me favorite cookie. I'm happy to say that these Costco Bakery Chocolate Chip Cookies are a close second!
They are so large and rich, I wasn't able to finish mine, which is saying a lot!
And, at only $6.99 for 6 cookies, the price can't be beat. I'm pretty sure they will freeze well, so I'm going to give that a shot. It'll help me to justify buying six cookies at a time in the future.
I'm not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing, but I'm really happy to find my new favorite cookie!
