    • I realize there’s still a chance this won’t happen. And if it goes south, I’ll have to Photoshop in an “UN” before the “SOLD.” But based on the sale so far, it feels like a go.

  2. And more importantly, what does Henry think about all this? Is there a proper dog park in Tahoma? Plenty of birds and squirrels to chase? And is the coffee still going to be forthcoming, or are we embarking on some Northwestern health kick, whereby a dog can’t get his caffeine anymore? Seriously, best of luck–I’ll be waiting eagerly for your next post!

    • The less Henry knows about this until it happens, the better. He’s not a good one for surprises. And I’m still working on exactly how we’re going to get him out there.

      • I don’t know if you have them out there, but here on the East Coast, we have dog transportation services. Little vans, you know. Of course the cost may be prohibitive regarding distance, I don’t know, I’ve never used one. But it’s something to keep in mind.

    • Nice of you to keep Henry in mind! He adds a whole new dimension to home buying—gotta think about yard, fence, flooring…
