A day together

4 May

Last week I mentioned the Doodle Romp. Well, we went and it was amazing!

We drove out to Dewey Beach on Friday night, stayed in a motel filled with doodles, and then spent a day on the beach with even more doodles! What could be better?!

All week my buddy Al Roker was talking about rain, but the day (two weeks ago, I think) turned out to be beautiful. The dogs were running up and down the beach, digging for cooler sand, playing in the water, and mostly looking for pats or treats!

Artie went right into the water…until he chased a tennis ball directly into a wave. Oops! He did not appreciate being knocked over (I didn’t like watching either – I almost sent MJD in after him;-).  He learned his lesson though and stayed at the water’s edge after that!

I love days like this, when we go out for an adventure, and spend the afternoon in the sun. I think when you’re first dating someone you go on these mini adventures so much more often, and once you’re really dating you get lazy. But thanks to Artie, every once in a while we jump in the car and get out of the city, and spend the day together. No computer or phone calls or TV, just hanging out. I love that.

Here’s a slide show – hope it works!

Flashback to winter

22 Apr

I just found some pictures from the winter snowstorms, and had to post Artie’s little booties again. These things were so great.

I mean they are pretty cute to begin with, but if your dog gets ice in his/her paws, these make the snow so much easier on them. Artie could totally be a model for the Times too.

Almost makes you miss winter...almost!

Alright, now back to spring!! Keep your fingers crossed that the rain holds off on Saturday so Artie can go to the Doodle Romp. You know you are going to want the pictures!!
