FitDog Friday~Exercise In The Snow

The Sand Spring gang finally got out to brave the freezing cold crunchy snow weather. We took a run down to the creek to see what was happening down there. We had to cross our marsh to get there. For their exercise I brought along 3 pink bumpers and threw them in the wide open so they had to go get them. Gambler and Glory would bring theirs back to me so I would throw  the bumpers farther so we eventually made it to the creek while they would run back and forth retrieving them. Nellie is not a fan of exercise so she would just stand on her bumper but she is also a bumper hog so she would run and steal someone else’s bumper and haul it back to her’s and create a pile. This made more work for me because I had to walk out of my way to go get them from her to throw again so I was getting exercise with them.

Thursday Barks And Bytes

BB3

The co-hosts for Barks And Bytes are Linda from 2browndawgs and Jodi from Heart Like A Dog.
The Barks:
Not too much going on around Sand Spring. It is still winter like here. The snow is crunchy and is hard on the dogs paws, it is still freezing cold here with high winds and still snow up to your bung hole. We did manage to get out this past Sunday and have some fun with the pink bumper. The dogs were super excited, the cold and crunchy snow didn’t bother them one bit.

At times Nellie is still puppy like it is hard to believe this coming October she will turn 10.

A quick video of Glory and MK playing and Gman bombing the fun.
John was goofing around with the dogs Monday night (while I was out of town), first Gambler took his head and slammed it into Johns eyebrow while he was bending over to get a toy. Then Glory was screwing around doing turns and such and wacked him in the eyebrow again. This is the outcome that I saw when I came home Tuesday pm.

Roxy

I found Roxy on the Chesapeake Bay Retriever Relief & Rescue site. You can go to there website and check out a slide show and the rest of her information. She is in a foster home right now and this is what they say.
She is good with other dogs, strangers, cats and children. She knows sit down and come. She likes retrieving and car rides. They say she is a retrieving machine, loves her balls and kongs. Right now she is being fostered in Des Plaines, IL so it will be awhile before she is introduced to water to see if she likes that.
Roxy has a good temperament, she has a very sweet disposition and is very loving. She is also one vocal gal, rooing and howling is her style. She just has plenty to say. She will also give paw and seems to be very willing and eager to please.
She is a 5 year old Chesapeake Bay Retriever female that weights 65#. She is current on her DHLPP and Rabies. She has been dewormed for intestinal parasites and is currently going through heartworm treatment.
If interested please contact:

Monday Mischief~Gman Vs Coat

I can’t leave my jacket on a chair, on a door handle, on the staircase or anywhere’s because Gambler feels the need to grab it and carry it around. Sometimes he just carries it around, sometimes he just lays on it and sometimes he chews holes in the pockets to try and get out the chapstick. I think he has my chapstick addiction as he is constantly grabbing my chapstick and chewing it up.

I guess this gives me a reason to always put my jacket away. Do any of your dogs have to take stuff of yours?

So after I did this post I get up and see this…….

Gambler decided to go though the clothes I had set aside for goodwill.

Nothing But Norman #32

Happy Saturday Everyone!

Project16 - Copy - Copy - Copy

The below picture I submitted to Retriever Journal as a subscriber photo. I had done it awhile ago so I totally forgot that I did it and forgot what photo and narrative I sent in. It was a bittersweet surprise when I got out magazine and saw it. Norman keeps popping in to say hi after he is gone which I am so grateful for.

And the older he gets, the better friend he has."
