This week’s edition of Fav Foto Friday is what my summer looks like.

Everyday when it is warm out…and even a few days when it is questionably warm…these two hooligans enjoy swimming in the river that runs behind our house.

Each and every time we take them swimming (even on the days when they get to go twice cause it is an especially hot day), you would think they hadn’t been in ages!! The way they are filled with joy and excitement from the moment we say, “You want to go swimming?”

They jump and spin and bark and carry on like it is the best thing in the world. They race us to the river’s edge and are in the water before us humans can even get there!

Ooohh to be a dog!!!

Their joy is contagious, if only for the moment. You can’t help but be happy and excited for them and laugh at their silly antics. It really is the highlight of each day for me. A moment to enjoy the sunshine and the water and the nature around us…despite living 5-minutes from town. Summertime fun at it’s finest!

This week’s edition of Fav Foto Friday features Dumb & Dumber…a loving nickname to my 2 canines! Ok…their names are not really Dumb and Dumber…this is Sawyer Brown and Maggie Mae.

They actually are not really dumb either…quite the opposite in fact…but they are inseparable and constantly very busy getting into some kind of mischief. It is a rare occasion that I can get the 2 of them in a picture where they ‘look’ like they are resting and without food being waved above their heads 😉

They know they are not really allowed on the bed…mostly because they think it is a wrestling ring…so the fact that they were able to sit still for a cute photo op, for approximately 2.3 seconds is an impressive feat. And definitely deserves making a Fav Foto Friday post.

Saturday Smile #7

Saturday SmileSaturday Smile is a weekly feature hosted over on Feeding on Folly that I like to participate in because I think everyone can benefit from having more smiles in their life!

National Dog Day

As a pet sitter and a doggie mom, I can not just ignore the hype on social media about the fact that today, August 26th, is National Dog Day!!

According to the National Dog Day website:

“National Dog Day is celebrated August 26th annually and was founded in 2004 by Pet & Family Lifestyle Expert and Animal Advocate, Colleen Paige (also the founder of National Puppy Day, National Mutt Day and National Cat Day …to name a few).

National Dog Day serves to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year, and acknowledges family dogs and dogs that work selflessly each day to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort. Dogs put their lives on the line every day – for their law enforcement partner, for their blind companion, for a child who is disabled, for our freedom and safety by detecting bombs and drugs and pulling victims of tragedy from wreckage.

National Dog Day is against any kind of “breed ban”. Dogs should not have to lose their lives because of the atrocities they have been forced to endure at the hands of man. And while we feel that American’s have the constitutional right to purchase a pure breed dog, we strongly discourage buying dogs from pet stores supplied by puppy mills, backyard breeders, the internet and newspaper ads. Rather, we encourage those seeking new canine companions, to consider choosing adoption first and if you’d like a pure breed dog, look into a pure breed rescue to see if they might have just the dog you’re looking for.”

Saturday Smile #5

smile1Saturday Smile is a weekly feature hosted over on Feeding on Folly that I like to participate in because I think everyone can benefit from having more smiles in their life!

Today’s Saturday Smile post shares some images from two years ago (as well as more recently) when my youngest dog, Maggie Mae, first came home. Thanks to Facebook, I was reminded of ‘my memories’ this week and that my youngest dog we welcomed home on August 20, 2013! How time flies!!

Maggie Mae is an Australian Shepherd and just turned two at the end of June. She is a typical little sister, who enjoys tormenting her big brother, Sawyer Brown, at all times! She enjoys treats of all kinds, stealing the ball away from Sawyer Brown, and ‘giving kisses’ to her kitties, Oreo and Spencer. She has the most adorable little freckles on her nose…which mange to keep her out of any serious trouble, because you just look at that little face and you can’t stay mad at her for long!

Now for some cute puppy pics to make you smile on this Saturday…
