If there’s one thing on the earth that Pecos is great for it’s being photographed. Yuki, with his previous modeling career, literally runs away any time a camera is pointed at him. Well, maybe not “runs away”, but he’ll look away, start fidgeting, and yes, even get up and walk away. Pecos, on the other … Continue reading Photo: Doggone Photogenic
Last summer Mom found some Peanut Butter flavored ice cream treats for dogs. These turned out to be just the thing on hot days to help these two cool down in the evening after running around outside in the early evening… I have no idea if dogs have the concept of the ice cream headache, … Continue reading Photo: Ice Cream!
Pecos was taking a nap one afternoon and when I came across his sleeping heap, he was striking quite the pose. I simply couldn’t resist from immortalizing the moment for all eternity. Mom was quick to mention that had this been a picture of a person they’d want all copies burned.
For the last couple years we’ve picked up a pool at PetsMart for the dogs to play in. Usually in the past, Yuki was the only one interested, but this year Pecos got his first experience with one of these pools
A few years ago we clear a number of trees from our back yard. We decided at the time to keep one, an oddly shaped Holly tree that gained the nickname “Seuss Tree” due to its trunk which is far from straight.
As mentioned recently in the twodo.gs Twitter timeline, Yuki has been fighting a yeast infection in one of his ears for over a year now. We get ear wash and medicine, Mom works on his ear for a couple weeks and everything is fine for about a month, and then the infection come raging back.
Continuing with the discussions of what we provide our dogs with, this post will discuss their playthings. It is really a simple list. At the top of the list is the most heavily used, the Chuckit brand of balls and throwers. Yuki has always been madly in love with the Chuckit ball. He chews them … Continue reading Review: What they play with.
One thing we, and probably many dog owners, go through is dog beds. At least, we used to go through them until we started buying the "Kirkland Signature" dog beds from Costco. A long time ago we always used to buy the dog's beds from whatever pet store we were frequenting at the time. I … Continue reading Review: What They Sleep On
I’ve had pet dogs, on and off, since junior high school and one thing that I thought I was seeing more of these days than before was dogs watching TV. I can remember as a kid trying to get the dog to notice a cat or dog on the screen with zero success. Today, without … Continue reading Odd: TV and Dogs
One of our constant battles is with Yuki's hair. All dogs shed. Some, more than others. I sometimes wonder if Yuki is able to set an all-time-high shedding rate amongst canines. Like the Samoyed, if Yuki's hair is not brushed daily or weekly then "tumbleweeds" (as Mom calls them) begin showing up all over the … Continue reading Photo: The Hair of the Dog that Bit You
