I was moving over a bunch of old videos and photos from one computer to another and I came across a video of Zoe that is maybe almost a year old. This video puts a big smile on my face because this is a typical welcome home greeting from Zoe. I know this is a common trait for most retriever breeds, but it just never gets old when we come home to a full body wagging pup who also insists on baring gifts in her mouth.
Did you have a good weekend? I bet if Zoe could tell you about her weekend, she'd tell you about all the time she spent at the Bark Park.
Though she is only focused on one thing, playing fetch. It's funny how serious she becomes once we enter the main gate and unleash her. Her eyes are on her ball at all times, and it's as if the other dogs don't even exist to her once inside.
I'm sure Zoe thinks "it just doesn't get much better than this." She could play fetch and swim all day, every day if we let her. After spending 2 and half hours of doing just that, she was pooped and slept in the back seat of the car on the 20 minute drive home.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, we spent most of ours outside since the weather was incredible. This is without a doubt my favorite time of year. No more humidity or 100+ degree days.
My neighbors and I took our dogs out to a near by lake that is walking distance from our apartment complex. Zoe and Hendrix ( her favorite pitbull ever ) usually spend most of their time playing "keep away" with the biggest stick they can find.
When and if one of us can eventually get it away from them, we give it a good toss in the lake. I love how they both insist on carrying it back together. Though sometimes Zoe doesn't exactly play fair. I caught her using her paw to knock the stick out of Hendrix's mouth a few times. Such a stinker!
These cooler temps sure do seem to give our dogs a boost of energy. Even Sunny, the 12 year old Golden Retriever, had quite a bit of pep in her step.
The mischief is really mine for not leaving any updates the last few weeks. After a short vacation, I had trouble getting back into the swing of things regarding this blog. I promise to start posting during the week again.
Hi, I'm Alison and I have an 2 year old black lab mix named Zoe. She was found wandering around by herself near a highway at just 5 weeks old. While her story begins sad, she has had nothing short of a spoiled, happy and healthy life since coming home with me and my boyfriend.
