Best Dog Toy Ever

I never would have recognized this as the best dog toy ever before I had a dog.

And it's only $5! Woo!

It may look silly, but this here is the best toy because it is all Ada’s favorite toys in one.  It is a tug rope, a tennis ball, and a rattle*.  She plays tug with it; she plays fetch with it; and she plays shake-the-living-daylights-out-of-it.

* Technically ours doesn’t have a rattle anymore because Ada tore open the head and ripped it out (earning her the nickname Zombie Dog).  But it’s a much quieter toy now so we’re not really upset about it.

Smarty Pup

On Tuesday Ada graduated from Smarty Pup 201.  The instructor Fawn Pierre was absolutely fantastic – she’s very patient and engaging and so good with pups of all different temperaments.  We can hardly wait to sign up for the next class!

Smarty Pups!

Congratulations Grads!

Glen Canyon

A while back Ada and I took a short hike in Glen Canyon.  The canyon is so lush and dense that it’s easy to forget you’re in the middle of the city.

Rest Stop 1

This particular spring day was pretty warm...

Rest Stop 2 & 3 we took lots breaks to rest and hydrate.
