We spent the majority of yesterday — five hours to be exact — at the local kennel club at a tricks class. What a ball! But, also a lot of work. I know my brain hurt by the end, and I am pretty sure Maddux felt the same way. He is used to being around… Continue reading Dog Training: Tricks Training
Maddux hasn’t been acting right the past couple of days, but I wasn’t sure exactly what was wrong, until two days ago. He kept scratching his ear, which I thought was odd, but then I smelled it. Whoa. Not a good smell, and this was after his bath. Luckily, I was going to New Jersey… Continue reading Ear Infection
We visited our first doggie day care in the area today. In a nutshell, Toby couldn’t wait to leave and Maddux had a ball. Toby couldn’t jump into my car fast enough and Maddux refused to get in. As my aunt said today when I told her about it, “it pretty much sums up their… Continue reading Doggie Daycare Interview
One of the benefits of where I live is that I am pretty much walking distance to the the lake’s public beaches, including a dog beach. Maddux got to experience that benefit today for the first time, as me, Toby and our friends Jen and Jenks spent a few hours at the beach on this… Continue reading Puppy's First Beach Trip
Yay! It’s the first time Toby gets to celebrate National Siblings Day! I guess that’s actually not completely true. He has had bird, tortoise and fish siblings, but this is the first time he has a dog sibling! Does your pet have siblings?
What a week! Things started out excellent. A fun Easter on Sunday and then took the day off Monday to attend Yankees Opening Day. That afternoon things started to go downhill. At first I really didn’t think anything of the slight headache and slightly upset tummy I had on Monday afternoon, but that evening chills… Continue reading My Stomach Bug Nurses
It’s here! It’s here! Opening Day of baseball! Being a baseball fan, this is a super big deal. It’s something I have wanted to go to forever, but either I couldn’t take the day off, or I couldn’t get reasonable tickets. Not this year. I got reasonable tickets, and I took the day off. So… Continue reading Opening Day!
Happy Easter! Boy did we have fun today. First of all, it is also Toby’s gotcha day. Not Easter, but April 5. Seven years ago today I brought home this little bug and life was never the same. Yeah, I made him wear this yesterday in the store and almost bought it for him, but… Continue reading Easter Antics
There was a bright thing in the sky this morning. It was something I haven’t seen in a while. THE SUN!!!!!! It was absolutely beautiful. The only problem? Super windy. But, I’ll take it. Now that the warm weather is here we have been going for morning walks, and even sometimes an after-work walk too.… Continue reading Saturday Morning Sunshine
Toby’s Gotcha Day is April 5, which this year happens to be Easter. So, to celebrate, and because I had a coupon, and we needed to pick up food, I took him on a little shopping trip to Petco last night. Because I had to pick up so much stuff, it was the first time… Continue reading Early Gotcha Day Shopping Trip
