Enjoyed the weekend

Remember the John Mayer song "3x5"?  If you don't, take a moment to follow the link on youtube and fast forward to 2:20 for the start of the song.
"Didn't have a camera by my side this time, hoping I would see the world through both my eyes."  Well, I defiantly looked through both eyes this weekend.  After the snow and cold of this winter, Paul and I enjoyed a day together at Stoney Point just walking around hanging out together.  He and I are learning that he doesn't have to meet every dog in the place, that sometimes it's ok to look at another dog from across the mall, and that it's nice to just sit in the sun enjoying some scrambled eggs (his new favorite training treat).
     The next day, Annie, Paul, The Hubbs, and I spent the better part of 2 hours walking around first the interior loop then the exterior loop of the dog mall.  It was nice to just spend the day hanging out.

The shaded side of the street

The down side to the snow we got this week: trying to walk the pups in the aftermath of slush.  Scrambled eggs are my friend at times like this (to bribe the A&P into walking in this mess)

Warmer Days

     I think it's safe to assume that everyone is waiting for warmer days of spring, while not quite hoping for summer yet (100+ degree days, no thanks).  In our area, it was in the 70's yesterday, so the Hubbs and I took advantage and took Annie and Paul to the Dog Mall while we could.

Sage: Part 3: Happy Tail

The silver lining is: Sage is very happy in her new home.  The down side is, she's got some cuts on her tail as a result.  Anyone have any ideas for her new family?

"Poor Sage has cuts on her tail from whipping it back and forth because she's so excited and happy. We have tried everything and can't get it to heal. She ends up getting blood everywhere, even with a bandage on it. Any ideas? Has anyone ever had to dock their dog's tail? I feel so bad for her… "

Valentine's Day Snuggles

Not the best picture, but I love the snuggles from Paul after I got home today.  I hope everyone enjoyed a moment like this today.

Bedtime Stories for Puppies

     At 23:45, 1:00, and 2:30 the other night, Annie and Paul needed to go outside.  Not just to take care of business either, the last 2 trips seemed to just be for standing in the yard and smelling the cold front that was coming in.

     At 2:45, they came into our room and stared at me from the floor with waging tails.  I thought before they woke up The Hubbs, I should get them out of our room.  Out to the couch we went where I sat in the middle, Annie climbed up to my left and Paul to my right.  

And for about 20 minutes I sat there petting them, wishing I had a book of Dog Bed Time stories to read to them.
