It just goes to show that owners that enjoy their dogs, enjoy doing all sorts of things with their dogs, get out today and do something fun!

Fall is for Hunting!

The cooler days of fall encourage my lady to get out and let me go hunting again.
The fields are full of enticing smells and there is nothing better than cutting loose and going hunting.

If there is something you love doing, like I love hunting, get out today , carve a little time for yourself and go for it!

Working Dog Blues!

Aw, the life of a working dog! My lady often puts me to work and actually I enjoy working most of the time. For this video we did have to do things over several times. Still in the long run it was fun, how many of us dogs can say they reviewed a book!!

How to Approach the Day!

Do you ever wonder how you will make it through the day?
In these hard times, a good attitude on how you approach the day can make all the difference in how your day goes.

Take some advice from your furry friends. Take a break and get active. It will help clear your brain and make it easier to think through things.

Jump for joy! Even if things are bad, if you can remember the things that are good in your life it helps.

Take time to play, it also clears the brain.

If nothing else helps, howl at the moon!

Seek and you shall find!

My lady is often looking for things to keep me busy. Sometimes she hides my treat balls , while I have to wait downstairs. Once she tells me to find, I take off like a bullet!

I look here, I look there, I look everywhere.

In the long run, I always find what I seek and seek till I find! If you want something bad enought seek till you find it!

We all grow up!

Once I was a puppy, I thought like a puppy, I peed like a puppy, well I was a puppy. Even puppies grow up , and while I was busy growing up so did my human John. He wasnt a pup when I cam to live with my family, but he was a youngun.Now he has grown up.

He found himself a lovely young lady and he married her. Now when they come to visit I get to have twice as much love.

Enjoy each day whether you share it with a puppy or humans. Live in the moment and take time to love those you love!

Wake up Cheerful!

I have found that many humans are not very cheerful when they get up. They have to have alone time, coffee and food before they are human.

Take a lesson from us animals. Wake up cheerful, assume each day will bring something good. Some days it wont work but , give it a try.

The humans in your life will be glad you at least make an attempt to be cheerful!

Does your Community Have a Pool Pawty?

Last Saturday, the lady took me to a puppy pool pawty. It was too much fun, I loved swimming and I must say I loved barking at other dogs that wanted my toy!
Some dogs learned to swim

Some praticed for Dock Dogs diving.

Some thought if they dog paddled from the side of the pool, the toy might magically come to them!

Some made huge leaps for the toys. Fun was had by all, you should ask your community if you can have a pool pawty after they close for the summer!

Follow your dog's example, enjoy each and every day!

Each day, take the time to enjoy it. You never know when it might be your last. Us dogs understand this principle. Today is today and tommorrow, who knows! So enjoy being with the one you love!

Be sure to read the news and enjoy it!

Read a good book and give your mind a break!
Of course I recommend the book I am in, Salty Dogs!

Get out and enjoy the day!

Watch out for Evil Cat Attacks! Attacked while Jumping!

Here I am , obeying the lady's wishes which today happened to be doing retrievals over a jump.

Everything is going fine. I am doing my jump that the mister always asks the lady why she wants me to jump such a small fence when i clear it by so much.

I bring her the toy everytime, but I am now noticing that Evil cat Pilgrim has come over to watch the action. When we train at lunch he always comes over and usually lays under my jump which means I have to worry about him clawing at me while I jump.

While it might look like I am running out on this jump, I am merely taking evasive action while still obeying the lady,note Pilgrim was waiting for me on the other side of the jump .

Attack, see why I call him the Attack Cat?

I had to drop my toy and tell him to knock it off!

The lady came and removed him from the training area and I got back to obeying her commands. Sometimes training means having to ignore what you can, and removing what you can't!

Need a Puppy Fix? Surf over to Dogaholics to see puppies!

This week at Dogaholics
the lady has posted plenty of adorable puppy pics including these Chihuahuas!

Rainy Day Blues, just get over it and Play!!

Rainy days can be quite boring! I was just laying around, then I remembered my elephant toy.

After a while even he got boring.

I finally had to resort to begging the lady to play. Sometimes it is best to just ask , you might be suprised by the answer!

Learn a new Trick!

Humans need to exercise their brains more , us dogs learn new tricks to keep from getting senile. I love trick training so much that every day at lunch the lady spends about 20 minutes teaching me new things.
Check out my video on how to learn to bow!

Notice how the lady shows using her hand to keep me from going into a down, that is the trick to this trick.
Has your human taught you to do tricks? Do you enjoy them as much as I do??

Toys! Treat Dispensing Toys!!

Some of you know how much I love my toys, not just any old toy tho, treat dispensing toys!

The lady thinks it gives me plenty of exercise, both mental and physical. While I do get exercise, I hardly notice I am having so much fun. If your person hasnt given you a treat dispensing toy, you need to do some begging. Here I am with my current favorite, the Tug-a-Jug. I do bean myself in the head, but I have learned to duck!

Allow some Hugs!

Allow Hugs! Now many of you are probally cuddlers. Even tho I am small and many think I should be a lap dog, I am not.
I do find that even if cuddling is not something I adore, I can tolerate it and to be a good canine citizen, I must tolerate it!
Once again the lady wants pics ,this time a few of herself and me. I did get some tasty treats for tolerating the cuddle time!
