Winter In The Dog Park

December 18, 2014

My GBGV Life Running at the dog parkWhen humans talk about Minnesota, they don’t usually think of it as an active place to live, but rather a place that is frozen most of the year. Amazingly, our state almost always scores in the top five for fitness and health, and we are big on being outdoors year round! Going to the dog park is also a big activity here. In the Twin Cities metro area, there are some fifty dog parks! Some are big, some are small. Some are fenced, some partially, some are not at all. Some have ponds, some have woods, they are all very different. Since moving back from Germany seven years ago, we have tried out many different dog parks and have about four we go to. Our very favorite is Cleary Lake, but the Alimagnet Dog Park is one we go to sometimes in the winter when the pond is frozen. Read more…

Yikes! I’ve Been Paired With Cats!

Pet-Bloggers-Gift-Exchange-badgeEvery year in December I like to participate in some fun blogging events for the holidays, after all Christmas is the time for giving. This year, I have several fun giveaways, and I also joined the Pet Blogger Gift Exchange. There are no actual gifts being exchanged, it is just bloggers being paired with another blogger to get to know someone new. My friend Honey’s mom over at Something Wagging This Way Comes is the brains behind the idea! If you don’t know Honey and her mom’s blog, you should take a read as it is always funny and you should know by now, I enjoy funny! Read more…

Who’s Teamed Up With The North Pole?

December 16, 2014

MY GBGV Life Santa delivers chewy package from the north poleI recently learned something very interesting! I was out playing in the snow in my yard when all of the sudden Santa and his sleigh arrived direct from the North Pole! I couldn’t believe it because it wasn’t Christmas Eve yet! Remember a week or so ago when Bailie and Mom saw the reindeer out training? Well, I guess the reindeer aren’t the only ones training. Santa heard that Chewy.com is known for pawsome customer service and speedy delivery. He decided to team up with Chewy.com to practice his delivery skills for the big night when he travels around the world from the North Pole. Read more…

Time for Christmas Shopping

December 15, 2014

My GBGV Life made the nice list so I can go Christmas shoppingI’ve been busy getting ready for Christmas now for a couple weeks, but I’ve been hesitant to go out Christmas shopping until I found out if I had made the Santa Paws Nice List or not. I posted my letter to Santa Paws last Monday. I hate to see things I really want if I ended up on the Naughty List. If you follow me on Facebook, you know I got my letter from Santa Paws on Friday! What a relief for the weekend! Read more…

Manger Confusion

December 14, 2014

My GBGV Life Emma in the manger crowdI was out and about as usual this past week, and I ran into my manger friends again. Evidently, they are like nomads as they move around. This time, they were not alone. It looked like a huge party at their campsite! Some funny looking dudes and lots of animals – I blended right in! I don’t know what folks like this are doing in Minnesota, I think they are confused! They really need to move somewhere warm with their lifestyle.. Read more…
