Mischief From The Past

September 1, 2014

My GBGV Life Emma and KatieYesterday was twelve years since Mom got my big sister Katie. Let’s start with the human mischief. On the morning of August 31, 2002 in Germany, Mom had no idea she was going to be getting a second dog, let alone a Kuvasz. On a whim she drove to the Tierheim (like a Humane Society) to adopt an adult dog but it turned out to be a terrible experience and disaster. There were some white puppies in the paper, so she decided to have a look. Mom never wanted an all white dog because they are always dirty, but unknown powers sent her to check out the puppies out and she came home with Katie. Katie is so special to me. I have been with her almost my entire life and we are best friends. For mischief today, I thought I would post some photos of Katie’s mischievous endeavors over the past twelve years. She may be a refined older lady these days, but that was definitely not always the case. I wish Mom had taken more photos, but digital cameras were new and she didn’t have a blog, so there aren’t photos of many things. Read more…

Labor Day Weekend At The Summer House

August 31, 2014

MyGBGV Life Emma and Bailie off to the summer houseIt’s Labor Day weekend my friends! Labor Day is sort of the last hurrah of summer, before we all get back to our more serious lives. For this reason, Bailie and I decided to borrow Gramma’s super cool wheels and head out to rent a summer house for some R & R. The sun was reflecting terribly on the windshield, thus the white patches in the photo. Read more…

Big Nose Work News For Me!

August 28, 2014

My GBGV Life Emma with nose work newsMy face in the photo pretty much show how proud I am of myself with my nose work news that I am sharing today! As you may recall, I did pass my Birch and Anise ORTs, so I can compete in either odor, but a dog normally works with instructors for at least a year before competing. Bailie and I are both taking classes and she has passed her Birch ORT, but she is still young, and just has trouble focusing on the task at hand sometimes. I take my nose work very seriously and am getting pretty good at it as well as getting Mom to understand me when I tell her alert (I found it). Read more…

It’s Easy As A Snap!

August 28, 2014

My GBGV Life waiting at the biffy is a snapI was all ready to work on my review, when Mom had to make a “pit stop”! Thanks to my new SnapLeash, it was a snap for Mom to leave me hooked to a sign while she dashed into the biffy. I know humans focus on where we dogs will go potty, do they have poop bags, etc, but dogs worry about what they will do if their human needs to run off somewhere real quick. The SnapLeash solves this dilemma. Read more…

Holy Hiker!

My GBGV Life with Dr Tims treatsI was excited to write my August review. I put in my order for some tasty new treats from Dr. Tim and was expecting my box from Chewy.com to arrive at my door, but instead my review was hijacked – not once, but twice!

Hot Dogs At Play And At Rest

August 24, 2014

My GBGV Life Emma is one of the hot dogsSummer is not our season by any means because we don’t like being hot dogs. Give us spring, fall, or winter, but keep summer. The same holds true for Mom. Luckily this summer has been cooler than normal, but we still rarely play until the evening when it is a bit cooler out. Mom likes the way her hot dogs look with our tongues out, but we aren’t thrilled. Read more…

Fit With Friends Fun

August 21, 2014

My GBGV Life friends Bailie, Spencer, and EmmaDon’t be frightened! We did not trade Katie in for a Doodle model. You may recognize this handsome guy with the bandana? It’s our blog buddy Spencer the Golden Doodle! He’s a Minnesota blogging dog and lives about 90 mins away from us. We met at the Pet Expo in June, and thought it would be fun to get together now and then for some good times. We met up at our favorite dog park Cleary Lake with 28 fenced acres, for some good old fashioned romping around. Katie did not join us as it was real hot and humid and we didn’t think she would be able to walk as long as were planning to walk. Read more…

But in the park where the statues were located, I also found this bronze statue of Peppermint Patty and just couldn’t resist a photo op with it. This one is permanently located in Rice Park and has been there since 2004. Read more…

A Chewy Surprise

August 19, 2014

My GBGV Life driver with surprise boxJuly was a month of surprise for this GBGV.  Most recently, I received a surprise box from my friend Andrew and Chewy.com. One afternoon, that new delivery dog unexpectedly appeared at my house with a box from Chewy.com. I have to say, that teenage driver gets more weird all the time! She was just out there laying her paw on the horn! What happened to bringing the boxes to the door? I will be happy when she is back in school and not delivering packages anymore! Read more…
