Happy National Puppy Day!

Facebook told me that today is #NationalPuppyDay!  While Delilah wasn't a baby puppy when I adopted her, she was 5-6 months old and still had some puppy-like behaviors (in fact, she still does at 2 years old).  In this video, she discovers cat toys for the first time.

Winter Storm Stella

Delilah and I hope everyone on the east coast is staying safe and warm!

Yesterday morning I walked some shelter dogs before the roads got bad.  Just as I was wrapping up my boyfriend texted me.  He needed a ride home because they were getting out from work early.

I walked Trudy again- she is such a good girl, I wonder why no one's adopted her yet!

I also met a handsome lab named Marley.  

Delilah was NOT a fan of the snow.  She screamed at it from inside the house, but would not go outside.  Right now she's refusing to poop.  To be fair, it's higher than she is when she stands on two legs though, I can't really blame her.

Walking Shelter Dogs: Week 1

Last week I finally was able to start walking dogs for my local shelter!  I met some very sweet pups looking for homes.  They have such a variety of different personalities and breeds/mixes there, I love meeting all of the different dogs.  My goal is to volunteer 100 hours this year.  So far I'm at 13 hours.  Most of those hours have been cleaning rather than dog walking.

This is Crockett.  This handsome goofball basically looks like a giant Dachshund.

This is August.  She's very cuddly and snuggles up against me whenever I kneel down.

This is Gus.  He's a very high energy, intelligent dog.  He'd love agility, jogging, hiking.

This is Chloe.  She's a very sweet, playful girl and is getting bored in the shelter.

Delilah and I haven't really had anything too exciting going on.  It's starting to get cold again so we haven't done much outside.  We do start our Reactive Rover class next week though!
