Hey pups! I'll keep it simple today and share this very cute infographic created by Here is a little background info before you get onto the graphic:

If you love dogs then you'll love this story. Recent scientific breakthroughs have increased our understanding about how dogs have come to play such an integral part of our daily lives. This fun and engaging infographic tells that story in a way that we hope makes it accessible and interesting to everyone.

FitDog Friday: The Mom's Great Plan

Hey pups! Today I continue the tail that begun on yesterday's hike when Mom embarrassed herself and lost my favourite disc (more here). I should probably start off by telling you what the plan was: Mom's plan was to walk the whole route again today. On the way get out the disc with a tool that she would take (wait for it...) and spend some more time in the park then we did before. That is the general jist.

The first part of the plan went smoothly; we got to the Nature Reserve and we found the place where Mom lost the disc. She got out the tool,

A penknife!
and started scratching away at all the brambles and believe me there were a lot of them! Mom told me not to go in after her and I listen for the majority of the time until the end, when I got bored and decided to come and rest on her leg. This made the Disc Rescue mush easier as you can imagine!

How the disc was stuck yesterday

The path of utter destruction Mom left behind

The kind of stuff she battled

(DM: I do love her that much!)

After that it all went smoothly. We got to the park and played loads of fetch with my disc. Mom and I also did some training which went marvellously-as I am a genius- and this spot became one of Mom's favourite training spots.(DM: There is loads of room, there are some distraction but not many, the fellow dog walkers are lovely and it is very pretty! Need I go on?) We worked on basic things like my recall, sit-stays, a bit of down-stay and my new trick 'sit pretty'!


There was this 9 month old puppy that rushed up to me. I was very overwhelmed and didn't know what to do but the owner was very good and took him/her away. Thank You!

It was a Tibetan Terrier but it look like a load of brown and white fur to me!

How can you not fall in love with this? (It is even better in person!)

Or this?

Happy FitDog Friday! Have had to launch any emergency missions? Or have you discovered new places?

Licks and Wags,

Hiking With My Mom (aka disaster)!

(Disclaimer: These disaster are doggie disasters not human ones, so human readers might not understand my pain!)

Hey pups! The title is pretty self explanatory- we went on a hike. And yes it is also geocaching day so that was the primary aim of the hike. However, Mom thought that just walking to the location of the cache and back was boring and too short for a high-energy terrier like me, so she threw in a couple hours walking through a nature reserve (the same one as we have been before). We got there and it was plenty fun, the weather was nice, I was happy and Mom was happy- everything was fine!

My ears have gone wild!

Everyone was happy!

There was an original dog waste bin


I'm here

Boring, non-doggie photo

Mom says this would have been a fantastic photo if not for my lower jaw moving.


I don't know what happened to my face there...
And then Ba-Bam! It all started to go downhill. I saw some water and I went in- nothing wrong with that. Mom thought 'Oh cool! We'll play some water retrieve!' So we did...for like two retrieves then I decided it was not happening and left the disc stranded... in the water... where Mom couldn't reach it of the shore (it was a lake). Not to sound mean, but it didn't bother me much: I knew Mom would get it out and I didn't care how, so I went to sniff some bushes. But I never expected what happened next. Mom actual took her shoes off and went into the lake after my disc. I was embarrassed for my Mom but then other doggie pawrents came...I was mortified. I tried telling her to stop my jumping on her and licking her face but Mom didn't appreciate it and pushed me away saying I would make her fall in. Can you believe her cheek?!?


Just as I thought it couldn't get any worse, it did! Mom wanted to make it up to me for embarrassing me for she started throwing me my disc, on land this time I will hastily add. Did the absence of water stop Mom from ruining my life? Of course not! She goes and throw it into the biggest, thorniest and thickest thicket ever! When my toys end up in thickets the humans always get them out but this time Mom said that even she couldn't get it out. WHAT?!?! She said we had to move on with the walk and leave my beloved disc out there. Alone. In the cold. However, she reassured me that she had a plan (come back tomorrow to see what the plan is). After a couple of rescue attempts myself, I gave up and decided to trust Mom and move on with the walk.

Can you see it?

My poor baby!

But I managed to move on

My intense gaze...

I cute on camera and off

Another sum set...

I want to see the map too!

And where is the dog, may I ask?
We finally got to the location of the geocache, sadly we didn't find this one either so we will mount up another, more detailed, search in the near future. It was a lovely nearby park that I have never been to in my one year life with the family. I can assure you I loved it so we will be going for often.

See all that room to run?

Living, breathing perfection!

Come back tomorrow for FitDog Friday and The Mom's Great Plan...

Wordless Wednesday

Mid Bark
