Halloween on Sunday

Halloween is on Sunday! It's always more fun on a weekend! Hope you and your dog have something exciting planned. Here is a recent photo I took of Penny. (We tried putting a costume on her, but she thought it was a toy and started to nibble at it....needless to say, we went with the bandana!)

Happy Friday!

Don't forget to stop and smell the roses....or stop and sniff the plants. I recently bought a new plant, and as you can see here, Penny was interested (a little too interested.... needless to say, we have come to learn we can't leave her alone with plants)!
Hope you enjoy the little things in life today!
Happy Friday!

Pet Loss Support Group

Pets definitely become a part of the family, so it can be difficult when a pet passes on. The San Diego Humane Society and SPCA have a Pet Loss Support Group that is held periodically. Their site explains, "The San Diego Humane Society’s Pet Loss Support Group provides an environment where thoughts and emotions can be shared with those in similar circumstances. Sessions are led by a licensed social worker and are open to those ages 10 and up....There is no fee for the sessions thanks in part to a donation from San Diego Pet Memorial Park; however donations to help with providing this valuable service are greatly appreciated.

San Elijo Hills Dog Park

Did you know San Elijo Hills in San Marcos has a dog park? Actually, they have two, one for small dogs and one for bigs dogs, right next to each other. We took Penny there and she had a lot of fun! (However, in this picture she is sitting on the bench watching the other dogs play...sometimes we swear she thinks she's a human!) Plus, you can walk around town there and stop into the Dexter's Deli with your dog. Such a beautiful community!
