Who is that? (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

Petting feels nice!

Who is that I am hanging out with? Who is that petting my head?

I have no idea! But she was very nice!

Isn't it great to make new friends?

Ball and Beach

Our Balls came out to play!

Oh Ball!

When you bounce
On the Beach
Very bouncy, and rolly

We chase!

Ojo brings you back.
(I do not.)
(I do not fetch.)

Oh Ball!

When you bounce
On the Beach
We chase and run and have so much fun

You are the most fun ever

On the Beach
Oh Ball!

Fall at the Beach! (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

It is Fall at our favourite Beach!

It was cool and hot at the same time!

Cobi and I did zoomies together! (We don't usually do this because Cobi zooms too hard and too fierce and it's not fun for me, but today we both just felt so happy that zooming together was fun!)

Whee, fun!!!

I love Fall at our favourite Beach! Has Fall come to some of your favourite places yet?

On Top of the World

Yesterday we climbed to the Top of the World, and back again.

Like mountain goats, we hopped and climbed. Higher and higher. We could smell the whole world from up there!

We took many breaks. Nature was making Hot Fall Sunshine. It felt very nice on our fur.

Look down there...

There are people down there! And other Dogs! And farms and growing things! I can smell them all!

Can we climb again tomorrow, do you think?

Jacobi and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Yesterday was terrible, horrible, no good, and very bad.

The day started off well. First there was Breakfast. Then we went on Walk.

On Walk I did the following things:

I splashed in the OCEAN.
I rolled in the MUD.
I got up close and personal with the STINKY-DEAD-SEAL.

These were all very good things! 

But then... Bad stuff happened.

First, the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad thing called BATH!

Then I went to the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad place called VET! 

And now I am on the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad thing called DIET!

I am very mad.

Ojo is mad too because she also had the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad thing called bath. The Terrible Bath stole the stinky-dead-seal smell from both of us!

Please send bacon. Quickly.

We sniff! (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

We sniff! Our noses are amazing! Not like the people-noses that can only seem to smell things like "stinky dog" and "coffee brewing". Our noses smell EVERYTHING!

We smell:

  • Bunny that went past this morning
  • Big Dog that peed
  • Little Dog that also peed
  • Pack of Dogs that were playing
  • Another bunny
  • Two squirrels
  • People
  • Where we walked when we were here last week
What do you smell?

I help with the Rake!

Nature is making Fall. It is called Fall because this is when many things fall from the sky. Rain falls, and also many, many leaves fall.

I LOVE it when leaves fall from the sky, because then the people bring out my friend Rake!

When Rake comes out to work, I always make sure to help! This is me helping.

Helping with the Rake!

Helping with the Rake!

Come on, Rake! Time to go again!

Helping with the Rake!

Hurray for Rake! I love the Rake!

Can we do Rake again soon please??

Oh Sunshine!

It might be Fall, but Sun is still here!

Fall Sun, you are warm on my fur!
Fall Sun, you are soothing to my bones!
Fall Sun, you light the world with yellow goodness!

Fall Sun, you are not too hot...
Fall Sun, you are not too bright...
Fall Sun, you are not too tiring...
You are just right!

I love you, Fall Sunshine!

Hi! (by Ojo)

The Naughty Box Trick (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

Here is another trick we both worked on! This is called the Naughty Box!

For any of you who like to train with your people, we did this by pure shaping.

Cobi learned first.

First she put one paw in the box for a click and a treat. Then two paws. Then a back paw. (This was hard!) Then three paws. Then all four paws. Then she had to sit down inside the box, with all four paws still inside.

Do you see how serious she is? She is wondering if her bum is all the way in. If is she is straight enough. If this will get her the cookie. Cobi takes training very seriously.

Then it was my turn. I watched Cobi do it... And then I went into the box and sat down! Because I am very clever that way! And I am not serious at all. Aren't I just the best???

Did you learn a fun trick this summer?

Oh Fall!

Oh Fall!
You are here!

You are the leaves changing colour, and falling from the sky.
You are the cooler days, the crisp breeze that dances through my fur.
You are the wet and the damp and the rain, the muted sunshine and shorter days.

Oh Fall, welcome! You are here!

I watch (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

When we are out on our Very Important Walk, usually I run! I bounce! I explore! I chase!

But sometimes...

...sometimes I just like to watch. And think.

I watch the breeze blow past, and I think about all the different breezes that there are in the world.

I watch the sunshine, and I think about how many different colours it shines.

I watch the rain fall, and I think about how many different rain drops there are.

I watch the earth breathe, and I think about all the different creatures breathing on this planet.

And then I am done thinking, and it is time to run again!

Do you ever stop to think?

Ojo is RUDE!

Peeing in the drinking hole! Can you imagine??

Now where am I supposed to get my drink from?

Rolling! (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

I LOVE to roll! Scratchy grass! Stinky things! Happy movements!

Do you like to roll?

Summer is almost over...

Fall is coming. I can smell it in the breeze. I can feel it in the cooler air. (This is very nice!)

Summer, you were fun, but we're ready - bring on Fall!
