Jojo's Tree Tour

Last Sunday Jojo and I decided to take advantage of the nice weather and tour some of the trees at Aquatic Park. We're quite fortunate that a park is right next to the shelter. Aquatic Park has quite a variety of trees (and large expanses of grass which the dogs love). Sure, a major freeway is just across the lake... but when you're out with an enthusiastic pooch who notices!

It turns out Jojo is quite the tree model and nature boy. We picked out several types of trees to photograph and our Jojo flashed his smile without any bidding. He's a love!

Turns out some of the most interesting smells were on the telephone pole.

Like I said, this fuzzy boy has... non-stop smiles!

First Date!

We're pleased to announce a successful first date between two BACS pooches.

Ms. Diamond sits pretty waiting for her blind date to arrive. Who is it going to be?

It'sssssssss the Cheese. Yippeee. He's any girl's dream date.

The pair then went on a chaperoned walk.

With an occasional stop for some doggie kisses.

Diamond Plays Ball!

Sweet Diamond was so thrilled to be out on a walk today as she hadn't been out in several days. Happy dog. We did a quick tour of the park but then headed over to the dog run so this active young dog could burn off some energy. It was a good choice. Diamond ran loops around the pen chasing the ball. She would then flop down on the cement for a break so I could pet her stomach and provide some doggie massage. She soaked it up.

Out and about with Oscar

Our Oscar is a great walking companion. He doesn't pull on the leash, and he frequently turns his head to say "hi" to his walker, never forgetting that someone is sharing the walk with him. Sure, once in a while he'll excitedly jump around but he settles down quickly and marches on. Today we did the complete Aquatic Park loop. It was a pleasure to spend time with this boy.

Goofy handsome Oscar

Serious, thoughtful Oscar

Pesky gopher holes

We paused to consider the pelicans...

Diamond shines

New girl Diamond and I went for a walk today and soaked in the November sunshine at Aquatic Park. Diamond was so exited to be out and about and she scooted around with doggie glee. It was lovely to see her dancing through the stream with joy, rolling in the tall grass and sitting prettily for a treat. It was a lesson in simple pleasures from my doggie friend.
