Autumn dog run

Claire always looks fantastic with the autumn tints

Nobu has become a real splash dog!

Just the day for a walk

I got tired on the way home, 12000steps today what with morning and afternoon walk...the dogs were sploshing around in the muddy terraced wetland area of the park, so I gave them a nice shower with Luminosa shampoo when we got home. I folded up Nobu's cage and put out a Costco doggie bed instead, so Nobu's got to get used to taking his meals in the kitchen. I thought it best to begin changing some things before a third foster arrives (in case a third foster arrives), because there's no way we can fit three cages in the sitting room, or anywhere else for that matter. At any rate get Nobu used to the change so he doesn't get nervous and link it to the new dog (assuming they come) or anything. The sitting room is much more comfortable without the cage, for both us and the dogs...Claire immediately took over the sunny spot.

B-Wood Dog Run

Thursdays is doggie day, and we go off to the dog run if weather and energy permits. Although Claire and Nobu like the country dog runs off the Tomei, this time we stayed in the city and headed for B-wood, where they do a delicious plate of spaghetti with egg plant and zucchini. Claire actually got up the spirits to growl and play a little with Nobu, and I had a bag full of toys to switch with their attention span...which is about one to three tosses or tussles, not big fans of fetch, my babies. Claire likes to do a standing jump in the air to catch things, and Nobu likes to play tug of war and will fetch for about three goes before the excitement fades...
