Anything about dogs.

Happy New Year 2021

Abby, yours truly, and Lincoln

Walking with my pack is something I do every day. It’s good for your canine companions and for pet parents as well and-for those who’ve met me-this is something I recommend all the time.

Abby and Lincoln tired after our walk

Aside from walking, another activity that my pack is quite fond of is napping. We wish you all a Happy New Year and may 2021 bring us all health, prosperity, and the ability to go back to what our world used to be in the past. Stay safe.

Merry Belated Xmas 2020

Abby, “Grandma, is that present for you or for me? Please double check the label”

Sorry for the late post, but we do hope that you enjoyed this past Christmas with your loved ones. We celebrated with our support bubble because we are being careful and doing our best to stay safe during this pandemic.

I hope that next year we start to see a bit of a resemblance of what life used to be before this pandemic showed up. Merry belated Christmas to you, your furry kids, and family. Stay safe.

SuperRemy And His Pack

Remy, my mom, and our Abby (L to R)

Remy is what I would call a gentle giant. Our Abby looks so small next to him, and he looks so imposing, don’t you think? But you know what? He is actually a very sweet and sensitive doggie. We are glad to have him with us.

I’ve noticed something interesting about Remy. He likes hanging out with my mom, and she enjoys his company too. It seems like we have a total of 2 guard dogs. Take care and stay safe.

On A Search For Our Next Canine Companion

Maggie, the best behaved dog I’ve ever met.

Maggie belonged to a client of mine, and I was fortunate enough to care for her multiple times years ago. She was imposing, to say the least, but she was also very loving with her humans and other dogs.

We are going to start looking for an addition to our family in the near future, and these are the breeds we like: Pit bull, Rottweiler, German Shepherd, and Australian Shepherd.

Wish us luck! The funny thing about it is that many times you don’t get the dog you want, but rather the dog you need. Stay safe.

COVID-19, Dogs, Family And Being Grateful

Walter and Alex (L to R)

The pandemic is wreaking havoc in the world, and if you listen to the news the number of infected and deaths because of it is rising. Although it does feel gloomy and scary, I am grateful to have our dogs and family with me. I choose to focus on the positive, and I hope you do too. Stay safe!

Dogs And COVID-19: Living One Day At A Time

By the way, One Day At A Time, was one of my favorite shows which also includes the new version of this 1975 TV series. Did I just date myself?

Seriously speaking, this is certainly a trying time for all of us, and for some people a pet is the only companion they have, therefore communicate, via Zoom, Facebook, etc., with them. You will probably make their day. Let’s help each other out and stay safe, and yes live one day at a time!

Dogs And The Roles They Play In Our Lives

Abby, “Take the picture mom. This is my good side.”

Abby is my personal trainer. How’s that you’d ask? I have to take her for walks, outings, and running so being active because of Abby is an understatement.

Abby, “Always buckle up!”

Abby is my traveling companion. We went to Montreal and Quebec last year and she did wonderful.

Abby, “Mom, it’s dinner time. Let’s go.”

Abby makes me laugh. She looks a bit serious, but she is really a funny girl.

Our dogs play many roles in our lives, and the imperfect human that I am sometimes forget this important detail, but Abby is always there to remind me about it. Aren’t I a lucky person?

Dogs And Kayaking

Alex, “Mom, I am falling asleep. Could we get on the kayak already?”

It’s funny what you miss as time goes by. Kayaking with Alex is something I truly miss although our first time was certainly an odyssey, but it got better and better the more we did it. Alex has been gone a little over 5 years, and my heart still aches for her, but I am also thankful for the time we had with her.

With that being said, let’s cross our fingers, we hope that next year we are able to go kayaking with Abby and some of her canine friends. Have a great weekend and stay safe.

Dog + Walking = Weight Loss

Staying at home is wonderful, but you have to admit that it is also a very easy way to gain unwanted pounds, right? Some people started going back to the gym, others have personal trainers-virtual trainers-or joined a group to do a particular activity, but all of it costs money to do. So, keeping in mind weight loss, frugality and enjoyment, the one activity you could do for free is-drumroll please-walk your dog. Yes, walking your dog would do wonders for you and your canine companion so let’s lace up your shoes and go out there! Not when is raining though. Stay safe.

Enjoying Our Weekend At Home With Our Dogs

Walter, “Did you say treat?  I hope so because I am not doing this for my health”

Just like many pet parents out there, we are spending our weekend at home, although we did go to the supermarket for a few things we needed yesterday, but other than that we are relaxing at home.

Dexter, “Is the food ready?  I hope so because I am starving!”

Some dogs along with their humans are sleeping, walking, eating, etc.  whatever you are doing this weekend, enjoy it!
