Let’s start by explaining that Toby barks at everything, and I mean everything. The mail truck outside, the dog across the street, if you bang a dish too hard. Seriously everything. It is one of the reasons I am working with a private trainer for him. Long story short, I finally decided on how I… Continue reading My (Non) Protective Dogs
Maybe my title isn’t exactly correct, but it is what I felt like. There was a USDAA agility trials about an hour from my house. Since I want to do agility with Maddux, I thought it would be good to take him and watch. I felt like the equivalent of a parent taking their little… Continue reading An Athlete’s Mom
I’ve explained this a billion times, but I finally got Toby to do the full body crawl on camera! He usually stops as soon as the camera turns on. It’s like a crawl up my body and it’s so adorable. Well, see for yourself –

My dogs are spoiled. I am the first to admit that. However, Toby’s recent actions, are just ridiculous. The patch of, well, non-grass because it’s the only area we could clean for them to go during the terrible winter, is bare. Toby refuses to poop or pee here. He pulls until he gets to… Continue reading I am Not Putting My Butt on That

After years of putting it off, I finally found a reliable company who transferred all my content from Blogger to WordPress. And, without losing my photos! That was a big thing for me. Comments, likes, page views…I… Continue reading Under Construction
