Stuff Dogs Like – Digging!

It’s fun! It smells good. It’s exercise. It gives a lonely dog something to do. It makes a nice cool hole where the dog can lie. Tunneling to make an escape under a fence. The dog hears something down there and is going to dig until he finds it. Breed instinct. Cosmo was never been … Continue reading

Stuff Dogs Like – Rides in the Car!

I don’t think I have ever met a dog that didn’t like taking a ride in a car. Even the ones that get car sick still like to jump into the back seat and go cruising. Let’s go! Wanna go for a ride in the car? These phrases have the ability to make my dogs … Continue reading

Stuff Dogs Like – Peanut Butter!

Ok. Admit it, right here, right now. You have given a dog a teaspoon of peanut butter just to watch them lick their teeth, smack their lips, flap their tongue back and forth trying to get every last bit of peanut butter stuck to the roof of their mouth, all the while laughing at the … Continue reading

Stuff Dogs Like – Barfing!

Got your attention, didn’t I? Ok. Maybe they don’t exactly “like” barfing, but they sure know how to do it well. When Clover was a puppy, she had a very “iffy” constitution. She had the barfing thing down like it was a sport. She’s not as queasy these days, but I must remember “no matter … Continue reading

Stuff Dogs Like – Fetch!

Fetch is a game usually played with a dog. An object, such as a stick or ball, is thrown a moderate distance away from the animal, and it is the animal’s objective to grab and retrieve it. Many times, the owner of the animal will say “Fetch” to the animal before or after throwing the … Continue reading

Stuff Dogs Like – Toys!

If someone walked into my house right now, they would think I was a mother of a couple of spoiled toddlers instead of two Labrador Retrievers. The toys are everywhere! When I went to bed last night, Clover was in her closet, and Cosmo was on the floor next to the bed. When I woke … Continue reading

Stuff Dogs Like – Food

Dogs are pretty basic animals. A warm and clean place to live, a good relationship with a human to look after, and a bowl or two of good food every day. My two dogs eat a pretty balanced dry food with the occasional goody mixed in. Well, ok, in theory anyway. Clover and Cosmo are … Continue reading

Stuff Dogs Like – Sleeping

Have you ever noticed how easy it is for a dog to fall asleep? They lie down, close their eyes, and within seconds they are sound asleep. A lot of dogs snore worse than some old men I know. Clover is a very light sleeper, and if I speak to her when she is asleep, … Continue reading

We’re Back !! Auggie Loves Himself some Watermelon

I keep thinking that blogging is passé.  There’s the old-fashioned blog, along with Pinterest, Tumblr, Facebook, and others.  There are so many ways of expressing yourself online that its hard to decide which direction to take. I like Tumblr a lot.  I think its a great platform for expression.  I just don’t think its the right … Continue reading
