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.

Our recent trip took us back to Maryland for a couple of days, and while wrapping things up we decided to go and have some fun. We went to a beach near Annapolis, MD. It was beautiful and Cynthia was able to take a lot of pictures.
For the last couple of months, we have been going back and forth from Maryland to Massachusetts and although I enjoy driving, I think all of us are ready for some quiet time. Alex travels well, but I’ve realized that once we get to our destination her appetite goes away for about a day or two. Dogs thrive on having a routine and when it gets disrupted, for some dogs like Alex, appetite diminishes.
Although it was early evening when we got to the beach, we were surprised to find a few people still enjoying the view and each others company.
Do you know what else we did while in MD? We bbqed. Well, to be quite honest, Cynthia prepared everything, and I was just the helper while Alex was taking a nap. We have wonderful memories of our time living in MD and this was our way of celebrating being together and looking forward to a new life in Boston, MA.
