Labor Day Weekend!

It's the last weekend of summer! 
One of our favorite things to do on a long, hot, weekend is head up north for some cooler weather and great hiking. We just love spending time outside and the beautiful desert. This Ruffwear Recreational Dog Pack  is perfect for those long day trips so that Daphne and Sarge can help us carry some of our hiking necessities. 

Heading to a"ruff" terrain? Not only will these booties help protect little paws from cuts and scrapes but they are also good for a smile the first time your pup puts them on.
  Pro Tip: Try them a few times before you're trip so your pup can get used to wearing them. Lots of toys and treats for distraction can also help make the adjustment smoother. 

Now that you are set, go out and have some great adventures this weekend!

Memorial Park

It was finally a nice enough day today to take the pups on a walk around Memorial Park! I've been wanting to do this for a while now but decided until we had some nice weather so we could all enjoy it.

Paw-Inspiring: A Dog's Purpose

a dog's purpose book w. bruce cameron

Have you read this book yet? It truly is a beautiful story and so inspiring! The book is written from the point of view of a dog who is searching for his life's purpose, and he continues to reincarnate until he is able to fulfill his mission. Even though the story is fictional, it is so well written that I can't help but wonder if dogs really do think this way. Now I always try to imagine what Daphne is thinking or what she would say in certain situations. You can get your own copy on Amazon for around $10.

Daphne + Fear of Water

Daphne should  be a water-loving dog. She has webbed paws for easier swimming, and her weimaraner and lab heritages make her perfect for the water. Despite this, she has always had a fear of getting wet. That is until our trip to the dog park a few days ago when she bravely followed some of the other dogs into the pond! She did not fully submerge, but I was so excited that she even got her paws wet that I had to document the occasion. Maybe we can take a trip to Dog Beach in San Diego after all :)

Paws Aboard Doggy Life Jacket in Nautical Print
Have a dog who's a little leery of the deep big blue? Perhaps she needs this adorably darling Paws Aboard Doggy Life Jacket. We know summertime is almost over, but there are still a few lake-worthy weekends left and we can't help but gush over the sweet nautical print. Available in XXS - L.

Celebrating Graduation!

She did it! Daphne has officially graduated from her Beginner Education class at PetSmart, and I am so proud of her. Next up is the Intermediate Education class and then on to Advanced. We are aiming to get the AKC Canine Good Citizen certification before Christmas, and then hopefully on to her Therapy Dog Certification so we can start doing some therapy work. I know she will bring so much light and joy into the lives of those who are suffering, and I am very much looking forward to learning a lot more in the next few months. 

I'm thinking this achievement warrants a special treat, so perhaps a trip to Sprinkles Cupcakes for one of their sugar-free doggie cupcakes is in order. 
Because dogs like cupcakes too.
