Our Trip to Big Bear

Our Trip to Big Bear

We just returned from our annual trip to Big Bear Lake. Of the four of us, we think that Maggie probably had the best time of all of us.     She really took to the water this year – as soon as she saw it she waded in a few feet, then a few feet more and then off she went swimming awa... »

What’s Up with Maggie?

What’s Up with Maggie?

Those of you that follow our blog know that we rescued our Lab, Maggie about three years ago. She came to us from a Lab Rescue who had removed her from a breeder, a breeding farm really. Her condition was not good, both physically and mentally. She was extremely fearful and didn’t eat for thre... »

This is a photo of our Sweet Sally Brown, her brother Tino and her bull terrier girlfriend, Lucy. Lucy used to come over for play dates every afternoon before dinner. They really wore each other out. They’re all gone from us now, but they were sure a lot of fun and we miss them.     »

WINTER: Southern California Style

This week’s theme for our #52SnapShots #PBSG Photo Challenge (sponsored by our friends at The Lazy PitBull) is WINTER! We imagine we’ll see lots of beautiful snow filled photos – especially from folks back on the east coast. But winter in California is upside down from what you typ... »

SlimDoggy Wishes Come True?

Jack makes a wish.   I don’t know if Jack or Maggie have ever seen snow. I know we haven’t seen it in our corner of California in the 20 years we’ve been here, other than in the distance on the mountain tops. I’m not sure how they would react. Given how Maggie reacted to... »
