Despite enjoying a day of sunning himself on the back of my kayak while I paddle along, or sitting on my lap in a rented boat, Toby hates going in the water. You would think he was part cat the way he won’t go near it. I have tried everything — favorite toys, going in… Continue reading Toby Overcomes His Fear of Water … Mostly
If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, you know we typically take a walk to the lake and around the village weekend mornings, and on the rare occasion I am working from home. Today, my little weekend warrior’s leg was really bothering him after a day of splashing in the water and chilling on… Continue reading Lake Side Sunday
There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that Toby loves going for walks through Lake George Village in Adirondacks, but Americade — the world’s largest motorcycle touring rally that attracts between 50,000 & 100,000 people — is by far Toby’s favorite time of year.

And, trust me … he was not happy until he was sitting right there. I had to move my coffee and my breakfast or he would have… Continue reading Mom, Why Can’t I Sit Here?
Toby is usually really good with the command, “look at me.” Except, during these photos. I think he was on photo overload since we had just gotten done with breakfast, which I was taking a ton of photos during because it was so pretty out, and I was also reviewing what we were eating for… Continue reading ‘Toby, Look at Me’
If you’ve never been to the Adirondack mountains of New York you need to come. Even on a rainy day it’s beautiful, but today was the epitome of a perfect Adirondack day — zero humidity, cool, sunny and what I like to call “flip flop and hoodie weather.” My original plan was to go kayaking,… Continue reading An Adirondack Saturday Morning In Photos
Always on the lookout for a new business opportunity and the desire to help animals, my next venture just might be a dating site for mountain lions. No, really.
