While most dogs seem to hate fireworks, they don’t seem to bother Toby. He sometimes gets more freaked out by all the people and little kids trying to pet him than the loud noises. Last night I took Toby with me to a Fourth of July celebration at the Carteret Waterfront where we met Toby’s… Continue reading Happy 4th of July!
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.

We visited Alstede Farms over the weekend with some awesome Tri-State BlogPaws Pack pals. It was such a blast! The majority of the Chester, N.J. location is dog-friendly, except the food picking fields. Toby was, however, allowed to go to the pumpkin patch. FIDOFriendly.com has a great recap if the day and overall writeup on… Continue reading Weekend With the Tri-State BlogPaws Pack at Alstede Farms
We are a day late on this because of internet issues, but yesterday was National Pit bull Awareness Day, and we thought instead of writing a whole book on why pit bulls are not awful animals, we would let these stickers on a car in the Philadelphia area do the talking.
