10 Reasons To Work Out With Your Dog

July 25, 2014

My GBGV Life Emma ready to work outOur family is really active and we all love working out together. Mom calls us her “fitness buds”.  We are pretty motivated all on our own, but we know lots of folks have trouble getting started with working out. If you haven’t joined yet, you may want to hook up with This is a virtual fitness club where a dogs fitness activities are measured in paws. It is all done on the honor system, but the competition should help motivate you to, as they say, “get off your butt, and move your mutt”. Bailie and I are usually towards the top of the charts every month. My bandana is a prize one of us won for being in the top three a few months ago. It is all for fun, but it may just be the motivation you are looking for. Read more…

The Playground

July 21, 2014

My GBGV Life at the bottom of the playground slideSaturday morning we took our long adventure walk down to a small lake that has a playground area right next to the beach. Bailie has never been on playground equipment before. It was early and we were pretty much the only ones around, so we decided to try it out. Mom only had her phone along, so the photos may not be the best ever, but they came out good enough to post. Read more…

Hanging Out With Bear Wubba

July 20, 2014

My GBGV Life sister Bailie with her Kong Bear WubbaMy little sister Bailie has lots of toys, but her two “oldest” toys, the ones that have survived her torture thus far, are both Kong Wubba toys. She has a green one called Wubba and this brown furry one named, Bear Wubba. The green Wubba was her first and she sometimes plays fetch with it in the living room, but other times she prefers Bear Wubba. Most of the time, she just enjoys rolling around on the floor with Bear Wubba in her mouth, making him squeak and tugging on his tails. Sometimes they just lie together and rest on the floor too.

Our Evening Backyard Workout |K9 Kamp

July 18, 2014

My GBGV Life planning our upcoming chase gameIn the summer, our favorite evening activity is a good game of backyard chase and wrestle. Katie and I used to play, but now that she has slowed down, Bailie and I enjoy it. Our backyard isn’t huge, but it is fenced and big enough for us to get some serious speed going. We always start slow, kind of planning our game strategy for the evening. Read more…

I’m thrilled to tell you Mom and I were invited by Bentley and his mom, Melissa, of Barking from the Bayou to join the Writer’s Process Blog Tour. Today, you will get the inside scoop on what goes on during the writing of our blog posts. I have been tracking Bentley’s blog for a while now, he is the most handsome Bassett Hound (I think I have a cyber crush on him)! At BlogPaws this year we got to meet his mom and dad, but sadly only a flat Bentley. Bentley and I are already planning to meet in dog next May at BlogPaws.

My GBGV Life posing in Vegas with flat BentleHis mom,Melissa, is great and put up with being almost huggled to death by Bailie at BlogPaws! She is a writer and has written a couple books already, The Returns, and The Returns 2 Showstoppers. Her books are mysteries inspired by her pets (past and present) and are a lot of fun to read. Bentley’s blog is always entertaining. He is currently living with Pierre, a Westie, that belongs to Melissa’s daughter. Bentley and Pierre help out a lot with their blog. Barking from the Bayou has a lot of useful information, totally awesome photos, and best of all, lots of fun! Stop by and give them a howl if you aren’t already a fan of theirs! Read more…

Baywatch GBGV Style

July 14, 2014

My GBGV Life Emma at Fancy Paws Grooming SalonA few days ago, I had to go to the doggy spa (Fancy Paws) to get my coat stripped, and a bath. Mom took that opportunity to take Bailie to the dog park alone. She went to a park we rarely go to in the summer because of the pond. Mom doesn’t like the water, and it is real muddy, but with all the rain we have had she thought it would be okay. Read more…

2014 World Cup Final

July 13, 2014

My GBGV Life Katie with her German pet passportToday is the final game of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. This has been quite the event between my sisters and I at my house. We each had our own favorites to start with, but in the end we stand united with Katie behind Germany. Katie was born in a town called Pilsting in Southern Germany in the state of Bavaria. She still carries her German Pet Passport, so it is only natural that she is a Germany fan. She  loves to play soccer, although these days she isn’t able to play much with her arthritis. She has had a soccer ball since she was a pup. Read more…
