Abby, A Cute Working Dog

Abby, “Mom, did you put some cookies in my back pack?”

Abby is a working dog, and if you ask her she’ll probably tell you that she needs a raise in the form of more cookies and human food.  One of Abby’s task is to carry her own gear.  Yes, people, there were a few cookies in that backpack.

Walking with my pack. Prince, yours truly, Champagne, and Abby. (L to R)

Abby also helps me walk dogs.  The funny thing about it is that she gets a little confused when the weekend comes around because that’s when we are off.  Yes, she is a hard working girl!  In order to fulfill your dog’s needs give her a job, she’ll thank you for it.

A Little R & R For Your Dog

I know, I know. I am always a big advocate on walking your dog, but you also need to give her enough time to relax and recuperate.  Add to that a nice comfortable bed and a blanket, and your dog will be in doggie heaven.  Enjoy your weekend!

Safe Dog Walking Temperatures During Summer Time

Abby, “Are you taking a picture of me again?!!

Summer time here in Massachusetts is great because there is low humidity, and we don’t get many hot days like in Maryland.  But just so you know, I still miss Maryland.  Anyway, Abby and I get up early in the morning for our first walk, around 6am, in order to make sure that my girl does not get overheated or burn her cute paws.  The next walk is late in the evening and this is usually a short walk because there are some days when the ground is still hot.

Champagne, “I am posing and smiling.  Treats and water please!

The time you choose to walk your dog is very important, but for those dogs that have dark coats like Champagne, pit bull in above picture, and Abby it could mean life or death.  I love to walk with my dog, but I am always very mindful of the weather and temperature.  Well, lace up your walking shoes and enjoy your walk with your canine companion.

Decorating A Christmas Tree With Doggies

Abby, “Mom, listen to me, move it a bit higher”.

This year – for the very first time – we decided to include Abby and Champagne in the decoration of our Christmas tree.  Abby, as you can see, took the job of decorator very serious and was micromanaging Cynthia’s every move.

Champagne, “Excuse me, I need to see some ID”.

Champagne, the beautiful pit bull, was our security guard.  While on guard duty, she found an intruder.  Oh, never mind, that’s Abby.

Being on guard duty really got Champagne tired.  Not to worry, both Abby and Champagne were handsomely rewarded with treats for a hard day’s work.

Abby was exhausted too so it was lights out for her.

And this was the end result.  I’d venture to say that decorating with doggies was a good idea after all.  What will you be doing to include your doggies during these holidays?

Thanksgiving 2017

And this is how we started our Thanksgiving day, with an uncooled turkey.  Cynthia started to cook right after breakfast.

Abby, “Where’s the cooked turkey? I am already hungry”.

We, of course, explained to Abby that the turkey doesn’t magically turn up cooked, but as you can see in the above picture Abby wasn’t buying our story.  Let’s remember she just finished having breakfast.

Once everything was cooked, we set up the table and showed it to Abby.  She was very happy, to say the least.  She got a nice helping of turkey, potatoes, and carrots.  It all worked out perfectly.

Abby, “Mom, let me kiss you”.

Abby was beyond grateful for the food she inhaled.  Yes, inhaled.  We had a great Thanksgiving day, and at least for me, what I was the most grateful for was having Cynthia and Abby with me.  I hope you had a great Thanksgiving day

Whether you are going to explore new places like Abby…

South End, Boston, MA (Woofstock)

I thought I died and went to heaven when I saw so many dogs and their pet parents this past weekend in a fair appropriately named Woofstock.  To say that Abby and I loved it would be an understatement.

A few dogs were ready for Halloween, and so they were socializing with others while showing off their costumes like this cutie pie.

Whoever thought about putting this event together did a great job.  By the way, there was very little barking although there were lots of dogs so I’d venture to say that we all had a good time.

I had to take this picture.  When I was a kid, I used to see women carry their children like the above picture, but never a puppy.  So adorable.  Have a great week.
