It was a nice Livermore afternoon and my tummy was growling as it was way past lunchtime. Turns out J.T. was growling for a different reason – she really wanted to get out for some fresh air.

I grab her leash, her water, my keys, and my wallet as we hop in my truck and head over to Taco Bell. Yep, J.T. is on her way to meet Gidget, the Taco Bell chihuahua for #22 of The Great Livermore Restaurant Challenge.

Livermore has several Taco Bell’s. Back in March I wrote about the Vasco location. This time I decided to visit the one on Las Positas Road in the Target shopping center.

Thirsty Raccoon in our Kitchen for a Late Night Drink

We just had an early morning visitor in our kitchen last night. A thirsty raccoon got through our SureFlap Microchip Pet Door into the garage and ultimately to our kitchen for a drink. The video above is at our second pet door into the kitchen.

We are guessing that the drought is causing our local critters to be a bit more bold. We’ve seen them wander the neighborhood over the years. This is the first time we’ve had raccoons make their way inside, let alone defeat our $200 pet door. *sigh*
