Treat ball time!


Rain out side, what will I do? Time to beg the lady to fill the treat ball.









After it is filled, I tried to see if rolling on it makes the treat come out.



Then I play soccer with it and I make sure to backtrack to make sure I didn't miss any morsel that might have dropped out along the way. Tommorrow I will show some more ways to enjoy your treat ball.

New Review of Salty Dogs!

Here is a review that appeared in the Dog Writers Association of America's Newletter!

This book of color photographs of dogs taken at the beach by Jean M Fogle is absolutely wonderful! Paired with appropriate quotations ranging from “All animals except man know that the ultimate in life is to enjoy it” (Samuel Butler) to “Happiness depends on ourselves” (Aristotle), the book joyfully celebrates the true meaning of a fun day the beach: sun, sand, water, tide, toys and sticks floating by. It reminds us all that sometimes, now matter what else is going on, if you live full in the present sometimes life really is a day at the beach. This book is an excellent gift for any dog and beach lover.

Molly Can't Escape!

Watch this closely. I am being good, I am coming when called. Suddenly the evil cat Pilgrim appears off the top of the woodpile. The second time I am coming I look a little to the right, expecting him to come from the same direction, and dang if the rascal didnt come from the left!

ABC Wednesday! Q is for ??

Take time to smell the flowers



Humans have a disease I call Rushitis. They rush here, rush there, rush everywhere. Sometimes they need help learning to slow down.











I find whining at the door helps. It makes the lady take me out. While I snoot around, she gets a chance to take a deep breath, and enjoy the beauty that surrounds her.
So today, take your dog for a walk and take time to smell the flowers, just watch out for ticks!
