Most of us are looking forward to this holiday weekend, and some are already enjoying it.  Roxy is certainly not wasting any time at all.  I know napping will be one thing I will be doing this weekend.

Don’t feel like napping?  No problem.  Perhaps this weekend you will find fun and games to keep you occupied.  Gir is playing hide and seek.  He doesn’t seem to mind having his picture taken.

Ok, so perhaps napping and games are not your cup of tea.  If that is the case, I’d recommend you spend time with your canine companions at home.  They always seem to want to participate in activities such as: cooking, napping, eating, and of course, walking.  Regardless of what you decide to do this holiday weekend, try to include your furry kids in your festivities.  Enjoy your weekend.

I am Sooo Tired – TGIF

2tired1Because the weather is so nice today here in Odenton, MD, we took a nice walk and once I cleaned them up, each furry kid took a spot to hang out and/or fall asleep.  Bella is the youngest one, 3 years old, therefore she was relaxing by the sliding doors and found herself in the arms of Morpheus within minutes.

2tired2Alex, on the other hand, decided that the dining room was a better spot to relax after our walk.  By the way, she still uses her brace during our walks, but not at home.

2tired3Roxy, a beautiful pom, kind of blends with my wood floors, don’t you think?  While they were all recuperating from our walk, I stayed in the kitchen putting away dishes, freezing food I cooked for Alex and Bella recently, and taking pictures of them while they were asleep.  What a nice way to start this weekend.

Busy Week at Alex’s Place

This week has been pretty busy and we’ve had 2 new furry companions: Bear and Bingo.  Our first one is this handsome 2 1/2-year-old boy, Bear.  I think he might be the biggest dog we’ve taken care of so far.  Because of his size, he is quite impressive, but he is very affectionate and playful.

To give you an idea of how big Bear really is, I asked Cynthia to take a picture of his paw next to my hand.  Could you believe the size of his paw?

Our second new comer is a cute 14 year old lab named Bingo.  He is not playful, but he is an amazing dog.  He reminds me of my Alex a lot, therefore I’d have to say that my opinion is one that is not truly fair but rather biased.

Bear with a frequent visitor, Roxy.  She usually likes small male dogs, but for some odd reason she warmed up to Bear pretty fast.  Cute couple.

Even though this was a pretty busy week, I enjoyed it because I got to see how much dogs differ from one another, and I got to spend time with them.  I’d like to call them my peeps, but that is for humans.  What word could I use to call them my peeps?  What would you suggest?

Roxy, A Beautiful Pomeranian

Roxy stayed with us this past weekend and Cynthia did her best to take pictures of them, but as many of you pet parents know many times our subjects are not very cooperative.

The above two pictures is a perfect example of what happens after a nice long walk and feeding.  No cooperation from these canine kids.

Do you know how I got them to look awake and alert?  I showed them a treat and that helped.  Yes, I know I had to bribe them, but I wanted to take a picture of both of them.

My Canine Entourage: Alex, Kingston, and Roxy.

My Canine Entourage

I always thought that an entourage, as defined by Webster’s New World College Dictionary as a group of accompanying attendants or associates, was only for movie stars, athletes, singers, etc., but I was recently proven wrong by my canine companions.

Roxy, a beautiful Pomeranian, stayed with us this weekend and out of all the dogs I have had the opportunity to share my home with she is my most faithful follower.  She even wants to go and make me company while I go to the bathroom.  No, she does not stay with me in the bathroom.  I don’t see the point of torturing such a wonderful creature.  When is time for her to go home, she is usually tired because of our walks, but also because if I am doing chores at home she is right next to me going up and down the stairs.

Anyway, this weekend was hectic, but enjoyable and as I was going around the house doing chores, my entourage, Alex, Kingston and Roxy, was quite a sight to see.  As soon as I moved to go anywhere, Roxy was the first one to move and get close to me, followed by Kingston, and then Alex.  They are all so beautiful, different, and amazing in their own particular way.  Watching them go up the stairs was amusing and entertaining to say the least.  Roxy, maybe weighing 10lbs., is very agile and fast.  Kingston, about 70lbs., is massive and no way as fast as Roxy.  Alex, about 45lbs., is slow when she chooses to be slow and this weekend she decided to be pretty slow.  I thought to myself, “Wow!  What an amazing entourage I have.  Talk about being lucky”.
