Hope you had a fun and safe Fourth of July! And, of course some cute outtakes!
Yesterday was Toby’s 9th birthday. When he was diagnosed with canine lymphoma in April, yesterday, was a day I didn’t think I would see. I have never in my life been so happy to be so wrong. There is nothing more in this world that I love more than Toby (and Maddux). He has been… Continue reading My Dog’s Birthday I Never Thought We’d Celebrate
Toby and Maddux are usually in their crates, but when we go places where we are getting out of the car a lot and they are being walked together on their leash coupler, I usually put them in the front seat with me. And, as you can see from the photos below, they love it.… Continue reading Car Ride Buddies
Maddux had the absolute best time at the Orvis flagship store in Vermont. We had no intentions of going there over the Memorial Day weekend. In fact, I really didn’t even know it was there. Maddux, my friend and I were at the Dorset Farmers Market and decided to drive around the area and check… Continue reading Maddux’s Fun Day at the Orvis Flagship Store in Vermont
They might be little dogs, but they love their new big bed. I bought this bed on a great day-after-Christmas sale in anticipation of my friend and his giant German Shepherd coming to visit for a week. Well, the friend and the dog were both no shows, so I decided to finally give Toby and… Continue reading Little Dogs With a Big Bed
Maddux, my little Florida dog, where do I begin? Let’s start with Happy Birthday. You turned one on Saturday and since I always write a letter to Toby on his birthday, I will do the same for you. Thank you for coming into my life. You are exactly what I needed, although maybe I didn’t… Continue reading A Letter to My Rescue Puppy on His First Birthday
Toby is a seasoned pro when it comes to Americade, a week-long huge motorcycle rally that bring people from all over the world to my little piece of the Adirondacks. For as scared of everything Toby is, he loves Americade — the motorcycles, the people, the fireworks, the parade. Maybe because the first year I… Continue reading Puppy’s First Americade, Outdoor Restaurant
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
We did a session with Toby’s trainer at 7pm on Friday night, and, well, he was mentally and physically exhausted. This is how he was sleeping on my bed later that night. He was sleeping in such a weird position! What’s some of the weirdest positions your dog sleeps in?
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
