Abby, “I love taking car rides with my moms!”
Lately watching the news is scary and depressing-to say the least-but then I take a look at Abby finding happiness in simple things such as: walking, taking a ride in the car, eating, etc., and all I feel is a great sense of gratitude.
Abby, “I smell food. Mom, do you smell it too?”
Dogs are great teachers, and for me they are an integral part of my life. They make me take a look at what really matters and not worry about things that are out of my control. What does your dog bring to your life?

Abby, “Mom, did you see that squirrel?”
To say that the coronavirus pandemic has affected our lives would be an understatement, but I choose to be optimistic and find a silver lining in every cloud. With that being said, living in semi-isolation has afforded me the time to take Abby for more walks; catch up on some of my reading; write a post more often; and prepare to start working on my taxes – I know, you must be giddy with excitement and anticipation to tackle this task!
I don’t know how long we’ll live like this, so my question to you is: what are you doing with your canine companions during this time?

Abby, “I heard something, but I don’t see anybody around”. Nina, “I don’t like this”.
Nina, the cutie pie on the left, comes to hang out with Abby sometimes, and walks are always on Abby’s schedule. Today we had some rain so we took a late morning walk.
Abby, “I told you I heard something. Could that be a ghost?”
I don’t know exactly what they heard, but they both turned their heads at the same time. Let’s remember they can hear better than us, humans. Our walk was an hour long and we all enjoyed it.
Nina, “I don’t know about you, but I am leaving. There may be ghosts around here.
Are there ghosts in Stoughton, MA? I don’t know, but Nina certainly didn’t want to stick around to find out. Smart girl. I may need to have Abby’s ears checked by the vet since she didn’t even move. What do you think?
