Our rescue dog Teddy takes running leaps when she is excited. My favorite shot of her is a leap she took on the boulders at Carmel-by-the-Sea beach. She has remarkable balance and speed, acting like a very young dog even though she is about 9.
Now that he has reached the age of three(a guess), rescue Ivan has been a good dog in terms of not destroying socks, slippers and various other items found on the floor. My outdoor leather work glove is a another story. He really enjoyed chewing it. While this glove doesn’t have a mate, I tookContinue reading “Have You Seen My Work Gloves?”
When Molly wants something, she looks up at me with her eyes and freckles in an expression that to me says, “I’m sad but I don’t have to be if…”.

After running off-leash for about a mile on the beach with another two miles of walking, Ivan quickly found the sofa when we arrived home. He stayed there with a look that said ” I’m not moving.”

She mentors dogs we foster while dutifully carrying out other “services” such as security (she barks at anything that moves outside the house when she is inside); alerting us to mail and package deliveries; critter patrol and much more. This border collie mix has been our best friend forContinue reading “Molly’s Glamour Shots”

Note: This training took place at high tide–most of the beach was underwater. There were no people or dogs around, so conditionsContinue reading “Ivan Escapes…”
We save them so they can save us.
When we rescued Teddy in March of 2015, her age wasn’t known, best guess is three or four. She’s a wonderful dog who runs the show, dictating when it is time to eat, walk and get petted. The above shot is of that time between these main events, a period of watchful boredom for her;Continue reading “The Time Between…”
“Get off that laptop,” or something like that is what Ivan is telling me this morning. Yes, it’s time for breakfast. Since Ivan doesn’t bark, he uses his eyes to talk to me. Very effective.
