Save a Dogs Paws in the Park

Save a Dog in Sudbury is hosting their annual Paws in the Park on Sunday May 4, 2014 from 10AM-3PM at the Wayside Inn, 72 Wayside Inn Road in Sudbury, MA.

The cost is $10 for adults, $5 for children 5-12, and free to those under 5. For more information check out the website here.

This has become one of our annual dog walk events. We love walking in a historic place, shopping, activities, and visiting with the other dogs.

If you walk a little farther, you can even see the building where Mary's little lamb went to school. The building has moved from its original location, but you can see Mary's school. (Dogs have to peek in from the door, but you can take your picture outside if you want.)

Last year we got to try complimentary massages and a doggy agility course. Who knows what this year will bring. If you are in the area, come down and help raise some funds for Save a Dog.

Friday Flowers

Mom loves tulips, but doesn't always have the best luck growing them. This one popped open yesterday and she just had to get a shot of it.

Katy's Fort

What to do when there are lots of people at your house? Retreat to your own personal fort. You can see and observe all the action, but they have to work real hard to get to you.

Easter Egg Roll

Normally the Easter Bunny comes and leaves us special Easter treats and toys. This year was no different. However, Mom and Dad thought it would be fun for us to participate in an Easter Egg hunt. We refused, politely. They were not pleased. So they decided to make it into a roll. They started rolling the eggs filled with smelly, but tasty treats and enticed us to "hunt" them down. After being tossed a few, Bailey broke ranks not only chasing them down, but learning to pop them open.

Katy required more convincing to engage in the sport. She was willing to attack the open ones. Mom was so disappointed not to get the shot of the egg that Katy had on her nose before she popped it off.

Happy Patriot's Day

We are celebrating a long Easter weekend because Patriot's Day and Easter fell on the same weekend.

For those of you outside of Massachusetts Patriot's Day is celebrated neither as the day of the Boston Marathon or the reason for an afternoon Red Sox game. It also has nothing to do with our NFL football team. Today we celebrate the opening battles of the Revolutionary War the Battles of Lexington and Concord. Since we aren't much for guns and loud noises we celebrate at home with Mom and Dad.

Friday Flowers

This is what comes of living in New England folks. Yesterday we posted pictures of snow. Today the snow has melted and we have pictures of the daffodils in bloom.

We are looking forward to our visit from the Easter Bunny. We hope he has lots of cool treats. Mom is talking about experimenting with treats in Easter Eggs. We'll see how that all works out. We wish all of you who celebrate a wonderful Easter holiday. We hope it is filled with lots of fun and treats.

It Snowed!

You know we love our snow cookies. We even get ice cubes in the summer we love the icy stuff so much. However, we were just starting to enjoy the joys of spring. The white stuff on the ground was unexpected. We had not placed an order. Our annual charity walks are just around the corner. We don't want Mom and Dad backing out because of weird weather. We'll admit we were perhaps a bit aggressive in our snow cookie prayers. However, we'd really like this white stuff to stop before it interferes with our Spring plans.

The Easter Bunny

Frankie and Ernie posted about the search for the Easter Bunny. We just wanted to let them know we had the great fortune to meet and have our picture taken with the Easter Bunny last year. He's HUGE. Makes sense he'd have to be in order to distribute all those eggs. He doesn't have a sleigh and all those reindeer to get around.

Mom searched and searched, but the Easter Bunny must have been too busy to make a return appearance this year. We are sad to have missed him, but glad we at least got the chance to see him once.

After chasing those tiny little bunnies, it was rather scary at first to see a Bunny bigger than Mom. However, when a bunny has dog treats, you find yourself strangely attracted to it.

Happy Birthday Dad!

It's Dog Dad's Birthday and we are so very excited to celebrate the day.

Thank you for another year of ball games, long walks, tummy rubs, and a shared love of our favorite sports teams. We hope for many more long years together. Have a day filled with love and laughs and don't forget some dog cookies.

Look What We Found!

Over the years, Mom has turned more to perennial gardening for her flowers. She loves the idea that no matter what the weather is like, her health, or other situations that get in the way of her gardening ambitions, there are always flowers that magically appear each year. She loves getting out as soon as the snow is gone to start checking for the crocus. We already missed the chance to get pictures of one that she saw just a couple of days ago.

We noticed the tulips are coming along. Mama has some daffodils ready, but they never have really taken to the environment here. The rest of perennials will be along, as it gets warmer. We’ve been protecting Dad’s asparagus garden. Those pesky rabbits are back. We are going to have a busy season protecting the veggie gardens. So far, the asparagus is our main duty as it is a perennial so it comes up without having to be planted. Mom and Dad will wait until after Memorial Day to plant the rest of the veggies. We are keeping in shape chasing the squirrels. They seem to have slowed down a bit during the winter. One barely made the tree this morning.
