Abby Went to Harvard

harvard1

Who said Harvard is only for humans?  We took Abby this past weekend to Harvard to walk, do some sightseeing, take pictures and, of course, continue working on her commands and behavior.  How did she do?  Not bad.

The day was beautiful but because Abby is dark and part Bulldog, I had to stop for breaks so she wouldn’t overheat.  This is very important specially for those pet parents that have dogs with dark fur:-)

We were hanging around the library, and after a break Abby got her second wind and decided to run around like a looney, of course, attracting the stares of those passing by.  As you can see, she didn’t have a care in the world.  A lesson for us, humans, to learn from our doggies.

After all that running, it was time to hydrate and relax for a bit.  We then headed home for a late lunch and a nap.  What a hard life we have.

Too Hot To Walk?

2hot1The weather is starting to get hot so that means that I have to be up by 6am in order to walk my furry kids.  Why?  Well, some dogs, like Walter, the handsome Aussie, can easily overheat and burn his pads/paws, and even dogs like Bella and Alex with short white hair can get hurt.

The most attention and care need to be directed to dogs that have long, dark hair, seniors, and flat-faced breeds.
