Blog break

I have a very busy schedule over the next few month. So it's likely I won't have time to blog.  We will still be having lots of fun but, there's just not enough time in the day to keep up with everything.

So, here are some fun photos over the last couple of weeks!

Why is Viva so happy?

It's bunny season at Seward Park and we are doing a lot of running! 

Between bunny and squirrel chasing, we are getting into great shape!

Speaking of squirrels...

D'light has been in full tree climbing critter mode!
"I have my eye on you!"

D'light has also found out that squirrels hang out in the garbage cans at Seward. This means he has become an excellent checker of all the garbage cans.

"More squirrels please!"

Catty continues to enjoy her nightly solo walks


Down along Lake Washington and checking out the birds of the piers.

We've also found some great new parks to explore.

Silly, silly Catty girl who has an upcoming busy schedule.

Still fun times in the house.  D'light and Catty having a good game of tug!

Pretty Viva resting in the warm sun

Happy D'light

Catty clearly relaxed and enjoying the sun

Back at Seward Park and Viva has made friends with one of the park workers.

On the move!

And Viva stops to see what is telling her off

This was funny as this little guy had a lot to say to Viva!

She wanted him to come closer...

He was a smart guy and continued to tell her off as she listened and watched.


Viva not ready to go just yet and she was hoping the chatter box would come down to see her.

Catty and I headed down to Stellacoom, Washington

We had a nice walk with a lovely view 

Catty says "Enough of this lets get going to the nose work trial!"

We had a fun time at a nose work trial!

D'light and I have been doing a lot of work on recall

"I love the recall game!"

We do this work along a long path where I can see everything around us. It's also very early in the morning so we often have the path to ourselves.  If someone does come along (with or without a dog) we leash up.  So we are working on recall and leash on and off.  Both are really good skills.

Great job D'light!

And as usual here's what the dogs typically look like in the house.

So stay tuned as we will have lots to share in the coming month.

Gotcha treat!

Why is Catty sitting pretty?

It's her gotcha week so I made a yummy treat for all the dogs.

As I was getting the treat ready everyone was hoping to share in Catty's special day treat.

Happy 6 yr gotcha Miss Catty girl!  

I had no doubt Catty would love this treat but, I wasn't too sure about the other two dogs.

Viva was by far the most amusing around eating this treat

She clearly liked the yogurt and Honest Kitchen base.

"What are these things?"

Not so sure of the nectarine or banana!

She liked the blueberries!

Sweet girl making a happy bowl!

"Humm still have the nectarine and banana..."

She did eat the banana but left the nectarine. 

D'light's turn and this is as close as he would get to the treat....

"No thank you!"

I offered him the Honest Kitchen mixing bowl

"Yummy when you get rid of that weird fruit!"

"This treat is all about me so it's about time for my treat turn!"

"One good picture then give it to me!"

"I love this!!"


"That was fabulous!"

Happy gotcha week sweet Catty!
