I love this idea… stepping out from behind the keyboard to “meet” all my fellow pet bloggers is SUCH fun!
So, here goes. Part 1: the pic.
Since the dogs are usually center-stage on the blog, I thought I should share this one of me and Newt, which John took a few weeks ago:
And I realized I’ve never in my life taken a selfie. I dislike having my picture taken in general, but it’s been especially weird over the last couple years because of the hair situation, but… I’m finally more normal-ish with my hair. So, I decided to take my first selfie ever! So I snapped this one (with my love, of course) as I was leaving for an appointment this morning:
And now for Part 2, 5 questions:
And now to spend the rest of the day reading everyone else’s! 🙂

“Black Friday? A day dedicated to me, yes?”
This is how he’s always done it. We definitely can’t take any credit for teaching this.
For the Lucas/cat training situation, I’ve been trying to create “normal” scenarios for him to practice being around Newt, so I bring my laptop to the neutral room at night to work and let them be around each other. Since Coop kept tackling Lucas when he tried to approach her, we’re practicing while Cooper is supposed to stay on his bed… Even though he kept getting up, it was too funny not to film. We’ll practice the behavior another time. 🙂
Does your dog have any quirks like this? Any funny behaviors that came naturally?
A few winters ago, the boys were stuck inside, bored, and restless. At the time, lots of other people were facing the same thing because of a harsh, icy winter. I put together 10 ways to tire out your dog indoors because I needed a checklist of things to do with my boys.
Now, we’re facing a similar situation, but for the opposite reason: It’s too darn hot!
We’ve been getting up EARLY to get the boys walked (and I am so not a 6 am kind of person), but even this morning it was 90 degrees with 86% humidity when we finished at 7:30 am.
So, I decided to put together a second list of things we can do. Combine that with my previous list, and you have 20 ways to tire out your dog indoors!

Whew! So there you have it: 10 (more) ways to tire out your dog indoors. What can you add to this list? What are your go-to inside activities to keep your dog busy – and out of trouble?
