Brian and I have been looking for a RV the past couple weeks. Saturday, we drove up to Roseville to check out a few, Tubie & Remo both liked the one we saw in Roseville. We did a test drive and they found their spot on the sofa. They also liked the dealership, cuz they left pizza sitting around (unattended) and Turbie managed to eat all the toppings. She was very thirsty on the drive home!
Yesterday, we drove to Grass Valley to look at a few more. Turbie & Remo met with the salesman to negotiate a price. They also had another Vizsla Reggie in the dealership that was 7 months old. One more dog to play with, unfortunately I didn't get a good picture of Reggie, but he was a handsome dog.
Hopefully, we'll make a decision by the end of this week. Just in time for the road trip season.

Sorich is a very dog friendly place to take your dogs. It's located between San Anselmo and Fairfax. I usually come here once a week. The foxtail is still green, but I'm guessing in about 4 weeks we won't be coming back until the fall. There are some trails and fireroads, and plenty of open fields for the dogs to run. Occasionally, we find a jack rabbit to chase, but not today. Turbie was hopping through the grass looking and sniffing, but none to be found. It was actually pretty warm out there. We found a couple water holes and one small stream, but I think those will be dried up in a couple months, unless we get some rain.

I always head back to the beach when I'm tired of the ticks. By the time the ticks go away, the foxtail will be in full bloom...I would rather deal with ticks. No problems going to the beach, just a little sand and salt water to rinse off. We're lucky Crissy Field is so close to us, it's just short drive across the bridge. It's a popular place for the dog walkers in the city. We always see a few other Vizslas out here.

Today we went over to Kentfield and we did a hike on the Tucker trail. This trail is so shaded and there are still a lot of waterfalls...perfect for a warm day. It's a good 2 hour hike and mostly uphill in one direction. We probably hit 8 water crossings on our hike. Great for everyone to cool down. When we got back to the truck, I probably pulled 10 ticks off the dogs. If they would stay on the trail we could avoid the ticks, but what fun is that, they are too busy running through the brush.
