Thanksgiving 2013

txs2013For some odd reason I keep typing 2014 rather than 2013.  Boy, talk about being ahead of time.  Anyway, I hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving along with your furry children and family.

txs20133One thing we always do during Thanksgiving is take a lot of pictures.  One year we failed to do so and the following year was not a very good one.  We took so many pictures and only one came out pretty good.  Most of them looked like the above photo.

txs20134After we finished our Thanksgiving dinner, we fed Alex a nice portion of turkey, Cynthia took the most inner part of the turkey that did not have any seasoning, and mixed it with her kibble, and you know what?  That girl inhaled her food.  By the way, do not feed your dog turkey, chicken, pork, etc., in large quantities.  The only reason Alex got a nice helping of turkey is because I mix her kibble with human food on a regular basis, lately 1/2 kibble 1/2 human food so she is used to it and I always make sure that there is no seasoning added to her food.  Alex, in the above picture, got inpatient and was leaving because Cynthia was taking too long to put the turkey away.

txs20135Of course she made a U-turn when she saw Cynthia getting ready to put away the turkey for she wanted to “help” her with this task.  What a helpful child.  Can you see how attentive she is?  We had a great Thanksgiving because we were all toghether and we hope all of you did the same.

Our First Outing to Patapsco Valley State Park – Daniels Area

Our First Outing

All right, I finally got everything I needed for our first outing, water, wipes, treats, sandwiches, leashes, etc., and we headed out to Patapsco State Park, Daniels area last week.

As I was driving I started to think, “I hope they behave, Alex and Kingston, and we have a great time”.  The reason why I was thinking this is because Alex wants to give every person she encounters a kiss, in other words a saliva bath, and Kingston copies her behavior.  Now as many pet parents know, there are those who do not appreciate this type of attention so I was hoping Alex would be in her best behavior.  Anyway, to my surprise they both did wonderful.  The “problem” actually came in the human form.  Cynthia is now obsessed with photography so she took her camera and started to take pictures while we walked, of course she would stay at least 40 minutes in the same place.  How can she take so long?  Never mind, only a photographer could answer that question, I guess.  Well, seeing how fast she was at this new hobby, I decided to keep walking with Alex and Kingston and come back for her later on.

A while later, we came back to find her and she was nowhere in sight.  I started to walk back and forth with panic in the pit of my stomach and thinking, “this is the third time going back to the same spot so after this I am calling the police.  Darn it, no signal”.  Yes, I was that scared.  Why?  There are so many horrible stories about people being abducted in the blink of an eye that to say that I was afraid was an understatement.  We finally found her with a big smile on her face.  Let’s just say for brevity’s sake that I told her loud, all right, very loud, and clear never to do that again.  She apologized and after that she’d only take a couple of minutes to take her pictures.

Life is full of surprises.  I thought that Alex and Kingston would misbehave, when in reality the one I should have been worried about was my human companion.  Go figure.
