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. He does more than his typical prancing through the streets. He… Continue reading Toby Does Americade in Lake George
You know how most people swarm a new baby? Well, I do that with puppies. Come to think of it, I do that with all dogs. If we’re walking and there is a dog, I have to stop and see it. It’s a little more appropriate when I have Toby with me, but even when… Continue reading Beach Friends
A not-so-wordless-Wednesday. Toby always has to be the center of attention — literally. He had to sit on the dual arm that was shared by two Adirondack chairs. 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
There are many places I get nervous taking Toby, because I’m afraid he is going to act up, start barking or get nervous, but when it comes to kayaking, I don’t even think twice. His first kayaking adventure was in New Jersey on Father’s Day when he was 5 months old, and he’s been coming… Continue reading The Kayaking Dog
April 3, 2010: Toby and his Aunt Janet enjoy a beautiful Saturday outside Duffy’s in Lake George.
Toby rests in his grandpa’s arms at the Lake George Winter Carnival Sat. Feb. 20, 2010. Read more about the very dog-friendly event at my other blog: “Fun.Friends.Adventure.“ (Toby really wasn’t sleeping — I was snapping shots and just happen to get him while blinking)
I never thought dogs could get depressed, or really have emotions, until I started noticing Toby’s actions when it was time to leave Lake George. Now I’m a believer. It started one day while I was packing the car last summer. I couldn’t find Toby. I was calling him, searching all over for him. He… Continue reading Leaving the Adirondacks Makes for a Sad Puppy
