Luce Goes Shopping (Again)

Saturday, December 30th, 2017

We went to the Stanford Shopping Center for a little “after Christmas” shopping and of course, Luce got to socialize. Since it is about 45 minutes away, we first stopped at the Rosewood Sand Hill to let Luce stretch his legs a bit. We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary there a few years back with our sweet Coco so we knew our way around. Our first stop at Stanford was Nordstrom and here is Luce taking a little time to rest:

He is very good in a down-stay as long as he cannot see Stacey, then all bets are off and he wants to get to her. While we were waiting for a bit, we tried our best at a mirror selfie:

Luce much have been thinking I was getting a treat for him or something. Later, Stacey was having a chat with Luce, or maybe trying to give him a kiss, I’m not quite sure:

She then looked forward for a better picture of the two of them:

Later, we took a stroll though Neiman Marcus and Luce took a little rest in from of the Chopard salon:

After that, we walked around quite a bit. Luce got to look around in the Cartier store and as usual, he was great. All in all, a very good day and Luce got very tired out. Luce è il nostro cane molto buono!

Taking Another Nap

Friday, December 29th, 2017

Here, Luce is sleeping in one of his favorite spots to nap. It doesn’t look all that comfortable and he has many other softer places to be, but he seems to like it here.

Luce Goes to Work

Friday, December 29th, 2017

Well, Actually, I went to a meeting and Luce went along for the ride. Afterward, we took a nice walk around the buildings and came across this office where we stopped for a minute. Maybe it looked familiar?

Felice Nove Mese Compleanno!

Happy nine month Birthday! Here Luce is doing his best sit-stay in the middle of one of his daily walks. We are on the linear park that surrounds our development here in Scotts Valley.

Yesterday we had a weigh in at the vet to see how he is filling out. He weighed in at 89.8lbs so his grown has slowed way down. We think he is probably getting close to his full grown weight.

Where’s Waldo

Thursday, December 14th, 2017

Well, more accurately, where’s Luce? If not for his white blaze and white tip of his paw, he would be totally camouflaged. When I am working he likes to lay at my feet, under my desk. The funny thing about it is that I am often surprised that he is there because I usually do not hear him come in and lay down. Maybe he is part cat?

Luce in Profile

Friday, December 8th, 2017

Luce was sitting in my office getting lots of attention from Stacey when she had to get up and do something. Luce hung there for a minute looking in the direction of where she was last seen:

Probably thinking, “Now why did you leave, I was really enjoying that attention”.

Family Christmas Photo 2017

Sunday, December 3rd, 2017

Stacey and Luce did great for the photo as I am sure you must agree. Not quite sure about the rest of us.

Heading Out for the Christmas Card Picture

Sunday, December 3rd, 2017

Luce got to wear a fancy Swiss Traditions collar for the Christmas card photo. Here he is in the back of the SUV getting ready to go:

This one is better since you can see his face.

Here he is looking right at the camera:

Luce May Be Part Beaver

Friday, December 1st, 2017

Luce still likes to lay flat to the floor with his legs out the back. He mostly only does this on hard flooring so we think he likes the coolness on his belly. Now that his tail is coming into its own it spreads out behind him like a Beaver tail.
