Two of my cousins now own Great Pyrenees dogs, the breed I grew up with. When I was in Wisconsin last weekend, I was really excited to get to meet my cousin Sue's beautiful dog Lexie, a rescue Pyr. She is absolutely huge for a female and all white and very laid back and even tempered (I had forgotten how relaxed Pyrs are especially compared to my very active little cavaliers). Another relative brought her fluffball of a bichon -- she lets his coat grow really long which I liked; don't care much
I'm testing out this new blog features as I'm thinking of you annual couples camping trip that I plan.
For the second year in a row we are camping how the shore of Lake Michigan on the Wisconsin side. The camp ground is huge and beautiful. There is so much to do and it very dog friendly. There are sand dunes and a board walk to walk on and then the lake is so blue it looks like the ocean. There are many miles of beach to walk on. I like going when it's cold cause we take the dogs
Yesterday evening I had all the dogs to the park and while Leo and Jaspar kept busy chasing a fetch toy or playing tug of war, I did a little obedience work, just basic commands, with Lucy and Lily. Then I decided to work on 'rollover' with Lily, who is so darn food motivated that training anything is pretty easy once she gets the idea that a certain behaviour brings FOOOOOOD!!
She's a smart little dog too (though a total flibbertygibbet with poor self control) so it only took about
A very funny column on combo dog names.
I see that Monica Segal has a new booklet on understanding dog food labels and ingredients. Monica has some great books and pamphlets on nutrition and is a cavalier owner herself.
