Wow busy weekend!

Ok, ok, I know it’s already Tuesday! We had a big weekend with Grannie and I was too tired to type!

So, Saturday morning we went to a meetup group at a doggie water park. When we first arrived I was a bit disappointed by how it looked because I thought it was kinda small for how expensive it was. Boy was I wrong!! This place was awesome if your dogs like the water! They had all sorts of fountains and sprayers and tunnels of water plus two wading pools.

Bell a had a blast! She ran through the water and played with dogs and even jumped through the wading pools a bit. Daisy on the other hand had fun, but did not like the water. There was plenty of room for her to hang around without getting wet. I got her to chase some tennis balls. She would run around the spray water instead of running in a straight line. A couple time the ball landed where water was spraying and she would try to get it but wouldn’t get wet. I was also trying to get her in the wading pool (like 1 foot deep) by tossing the tennis ball near the edge but she would keep her paws on dry land and lean into pool to get the ball. it was cute. I might not go there again unless a group of us goes because it’s kinda expensive for what you get. Bella likes the beach just as much and it’s free.

optical illusion, she isn't in the water!

I really want the ball!

Hi there!

Saturday evening we went to the dog park so the girls could run around and boy did they ever!!!  They ended up chasing each other, wrestling, and playing bitey face! I was so glad Grannie go to see them have that type of fun.  They both seem to enjoy it so I hope it happens more often.  It seems they both have to be in the right kind of playful mood at the same time.  Neither one overpowers the other too much.  Daisy does like to grab Bella’s throat but she doesn’t clamp down. Bella will give it right back to her though.

Bitey face!

I'll get your leg!

The girls were really sad to see Grannie go.  Now they expect 24/7 petting and attention like I don’t have work to do!!  She spoils them so much but of course they love every minute of it!

Is it ok…

to laugh at your dog’s expense?

Daisy was not feeling well. She was having another bout of nausea and vomiting so we went into the vet’s office. They have this little Tabby in the waiting room that is up for adoption. Daisy was just walking by the cage, she didn’t sniff or look at the cat all but the cat hissed and spit at her.

You know the goats that faint? Yeah, that is what Daisy did! She fell right over on her side then struggled to get back up. The tech and I laughed sooooo hard! it had to been one of the funniest things ever! I mean, my dog is supposed to be a mighty huntress. A hissing furry animal is supposed to make her blood boil and here my dog is playing dead!! No wonder she didn’t make it as a hunting dog!! LOL

stinky, sandy girl!

Yesterday morning Bella and I went to the dog beach for a meetup group. She had a blast! She loves running through the water. i think she likes the smells too. She likes rolling in the sand. She smells so good with decaying sea grass and toxic waste all over her. (this beach is in a shipping lane, I would NOT swim there).

The funniest thing is when she is chasing other dogs around. many retriever and water loving dogs come to this park. So they go to run into the water, typically chasing a toy or ball and she runs after them. Until the water hits her chest. This is where crucial split second decisions must be made…swim, or run? She chooses run. She loves the water but doesn’t swim. She bunny hops back out of the water.
