Lessons From Our Dogs: Let’s Relax

Blast from the past. Dexter and our Alex, and on the background Walter.

It’s a beautiful sunny day here in Annapolis, MD and on Sundays we try, operative word try, to take this day to relax, and just enjoy being home. Living with dogs-if you pay attention-could teach you many things, one of them is learning to relax which for most people is hard to do.

I look at them when they are taking a nap, and it’s beautiful to see how they don’t seem to have a care in the world. We, humans, need to learn to do that. Anyway, enjoy your day, and take a moment, or a day for that matter, to relax. Stay safe.

Happy Valentine’s Day 2022

Bella and Dexter, “Could we have some privacy please mom! Aren’t we adorable?”

Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you pet parents and your canine kids! Although the day started cloudy with some flurries, as time went by it turned out to be sunny and nice enough to take a long walk. Aside from celebrating this day about love, we also celebrate it because Charlie, yesterday, has been with us for one year. Could you believe that? Time goes by so fast.

Enjoy this beautiful day with your family, give them extra hugs and kisses, and don’t forget to walk. Stay safe!

Back To Our Old Routine

Abby and Charlie, “Mom, we saw a fish. Could we get it?” Mom, “No!”

Since Abby and Charlie were driving us up the wall-totally my fault of course-this is what their day looks like:

  1. Walking – extremely important therefore I listed it first. If possible, twice a day
  2. Behavior and Training – make your pup wait for you while you take laundry out of the dryer; eye contact to you right before you feed him; sit while you put on his Halti and much more
  3. Structure – your dog should have time for walks, behavior and training, crate time, and naps
  4. Job – find out what your dog loves to do and hire him/her for that job

The above are just a few of the things you need to do in order for your dog to be balanced, and for you to keep your sanity and minimize at all cost your hair turning gray. There are studies that state that stress causes our hair to turn gray so for the sake of vanity if nothing else, follow the above list. Stay safe!
