Learning life’s lessons

When Benji first came home – he had to have “the” surgery, and he had to learn to WALK on the leash. You can see quite clearly how he felt about “the” surgery, and “the leash….. Benj Benj Benj Benj Benj – thinks going for walks is very fun.  When trucks and cars pass by…

Return to the mountains

Mommy is getting excited.  We get to return to our beloved mountain hideaway soon.  We get to take special guests and spend a whole week – soaking in mountain air and majestic vista’s. When we were there last time mommy would take me for walks very early in the morning, and we would watch the…

Sleeping downstairs

Last night was a little weird.  The lights kept flickering and flickering and then they went OUT.  Boom.  Everything was dark. It was pretty early in the evening, so mommy asked if we wanted to go outside.  It was raining, like a shower, but it was warm, so we went outside.  Benji and I decided…

The Ball

Some days life is ALL about “The Ball”

Puppies

What’s so fun about puppies? They need lots of training and lots of instructions and shots and frequent “checkups” with the doctor. I am pretty sure that’s so the doctor can see if you’re pet-parent is a good pet-parent and they like poking you with needles. Yet everyone loves puppies so there must be some…

A Dog’s life…

… is pretty simple. We rise and eat, and play and sleep. We guard and chase, walk and explore. .. Then we do it all over again.  Chewing bone-bones and chasing bear-bears are also fun past-times. Mommy says we live in a world that is sometimes far away from hers, where she has to deal…
