…NOT!! 😉

My friend Riley hung out with me for a few days last weekend.  She is also a black lab mix.  We are almost the same size (she’s bigger), age (she’s a little older) and similar temperament (I’m nicer…haha).

We played and played and played until we were exhausted.  Then we would take a quick catnap before we played and played and played some more.

We had so much fun going for car rides, playing tug-o-war, pulling the stuffing out of toys, fetching balls and running around the house like lunatics.  We even had a chance to go to the dog park but we didn’t stay long because a boxer bullied both of us (Aunt Kwyn called his owner a #*$@%). 😉

Every morning we would wake up Aunt Kwyn at 5 am.  What can I say, we were antsy kids at a slumber party.  Our tails would start wagging when we saw that she opened up her eye.  The moment we saw an eyeball, her siesta time was over.  You know what that means…it’s time to go for a walk!!!!!

Have a great weekend everyone.  Until next time!

Ripping out stuffing is fun! I’m shaking it out of my toy while Riley is acting like a good girl for the camera.

Treat time! I introduced Riley to one of my favorite natural chew treats, cow tube. She likes it!

I must go to my secret hiding place upstairs so she can’t steal my treat.

We’re getting a little tired from running around the house.

But we can’t help ourselves playing one more time before…

…catnap! Okay, 30 minute break to rest our eyes and then we’ll play some more.

Chillin’ with my friends

Hi everybody!

The polar vortex that blasted Washington D.C. has lifted.  The temperature was almost 50 degrees today.  I’ve been going stir crazy so I was excited for a car ride to Lita’s house.

To my surprise, my friend Riley was over Lita’s house too!  I haven’t seen Riley since we went to the beach last summer so it was great seeing her again.  Better yet, we all went to the dog park!!!!!!!!!!

We played with a few friends until we were pooped out.  I was covered in mud from head to toe which meant I needed a bath when we got home.  It was well worth it though!  I got to play with Lita and Riley, go to the dog park, and meet up with more new friends.  So all in all, I’d trade today’s adventures for a bath any day! 😉

I’m being chased by Cooper, who is being chased by Lita. Fun!!


Riley and Cooper are negotiating who gets the stick while Lita and I watch.


Cooper doesn’t want to share the stick so I’m running back to play with Lita and Riley.


Enough talking. Somebody chase me!!!!!


This is my other new friend Patrick. He LOVED chasing me the entire time. I ran and I ran and I ran until I was exhausted.


Riley joined us too. She’s waaaay in the back.


She caught up to us! Wow she’s fast!
