We are not dead!

This summer has been awesome! I tell you what... we are some exhausted puppies at the end of every day. Rollerblading, Hiking, Frisbee, Camping, Traveling, 
Pools, Lakes, Vet Visits and Agility classes. 
Dress up, Play Dates, Elevator Rides, Trains, You name it!

Until I have the energy to write on the blog more... follow us on Instagram

Martok met some beautiful black pups at the dog park the other day. The three of them seemed pretty thrilled with each other. Git uhm!

New Places

While the dogs certainly enjoy places we know well.... its refreshing to change things up and walk a new area.  The summer heat isnt so bad lately so downtown seemed like a good idea. Taricha and Martok agreed.


There was an ice cream truck dinging around this building so of course we had to stop!
Having some ice cream in the shade really hits the spot. 

And then we found some pirates!

Now get outside and have some fun! 
Winter is coming!

A Lotta Nature

Stuff like this is what keeps us away from the computer! This trip was the bestest. In the middle no nowhere Missouri, Taricha and I made camp for a few days with the family and my man friend. Taricha was thrilled to have all of 'her' people around and all the meats over fires to smell.

A whole day was set aside for just doing something Taricha enjoys. We managed to hike a good 8 miles, explored some caves, ate some lunch, romped and all around had a great time.

and At the end of a day....

Oh I gave her other soft places to lay down but she decided this floatie was hers!

 (Where is Martok during this trip? Oh I left him at home sadly with the roommate. I try to take the dogs seperatly here and there, we like our time together. Oh and the two of them together can get a little much to handle for extended periods of time... Martok is still a puppy, after all. Next year when he grows a bit, we may have some real family trips!)

A Good Summer

I do apologize for our lack of being here... it's just that we've been busy enjoying summer!

More Water

Martok is slowily teaching Taricha that water is awesome! 

This is our favorite lake, Perry Lake and the water levels are finally low enough that a beach is starting to appear, making romping around much more pleasurable than the rocky ledgest two months ago.

Moo, I'm a Cow

Taricha has always had a love for grass.

Must taste good? 

She will seek out particularly tasty patches and munch munch munch!

Taricha is feeling fine! She just... likes.. grass and always has!
Sometimes she'll even pout at me when I wont let her eat grass... grass in yards or near buildings and parking lots.. 
Must avoid eating chemicals!

Enjoying summer and hope you are too!

There's a storm coming!

Trying to get a little fun in before another storm rolls in.

Kinda hard to tell but the sky is shades of black.

A rare family photo!

The Liberty WWII Memorial overlooking downtown Kansas City.

We are pooped!

Feels like Summer is really here

Oh man, this heat and humidity has been just awful and this whole coming week is going to be worse!

We are trying to spend more time in the AC!
We loves us some AC!

oh don't worry too much, we get plenty of sunshine too.
We just tone it down and shorten it up.
Especially Taricha with her short face and pink skin.

Instead of walking laps around the park on hot pavement.
We sit in the shade and read a book.


Best part of summer is sometimes we get ice cream.... !

A Week in Review

Martok wanted to show off his latest skills and accomplishment. 
Another class down, he starts basic agility next!

Taricha is leaving all that silly school work to the puppy.
She'd rather just enjoy the grass.

I visited a snake guy and got to play with some beauties! 
The dogs we'rent so interested in that.

Sort of came home with two new snakes. 
A pair of red blood pythons.

Most importantly we visited with Hank.
He was our shepard foster a while back who found his forever home!

Martok and Hank got along extremely well, even with the size difference.
I was delighted to see Hank doing so well and happy.
The summer fun better keep on comin!

Some Real Experience

Today Martok needed some new experiences. The sun was shining and with so many events going on around town it was hard to decide what to do. We ended up going downtown to one of my personal favorite areas to walk, Brush Creek, for the Dragon Boat Races!

There were a LOT of people around but I was expecting this! We came prepared with tons of treats, a toy and water. My plan was to stick to the slower areas with less crowds and scary objects. 

I found it interesting that Martok didnt blink an eye at strollers, wheelchairs, people in strange uniforms, motorcycles or kids climbing on walls/trees but.... Balloons, Fountains and Statues scared him.

Martok didn't seem to enjoy being around so much activity but he tolerated it well and kept a pretty easy gait and nature the whole time, always up for listening and treats. He even had a few people stop to say hello but not as many as I expected, walking around with a little black puppy apparently is not as cool as walking around with a giant white brindled beastly bulldog. (everyone everywhere wants to say hi to Taricha, which she hates. See this post.)

The Dragon boats were neat! The teams rowing seemed to have no clue what they were doing as every other boat kept slamming into the edges of the creek, at a fast clip! It was hilarious and every time people roared!

Hey I think you need to straighten up...

Too much! **CLUNK**

what do you mean I can't go swimming, its hoooooot!

And we walked around and we chilled and we checked out the city.
Martok makes me smile, he really does!
