Yogi the immensely awesome pup :)

Firstly, let us remember my FAVORITE dog, Penny, who is, um, a little jealous at times that I am running around the neighborhood with an adorable Golden Doodle puppy named Yogi. I love Yogi immensely.  BUT, Yogi is not my girl.  Penny is.  And she will be adorably puppy sized her whole life, and she is super cuddly to me and howls with delight at 125 decibels when I come home.  No Golden Doodle pup could ever do that ;)

Alright, so you know that my sideline is as a Professional Dog Walker, yes, and that my neighbor's got little Yogi?  I walk him all over, but first thing is first:  we have a river through the middle of the village, and many of the best walks are on the other side.  Yogi's family was never able to convince their first 2 dogs to go across, so I am using treats to get Yogi used to it.  He has been a CHAMP.  You can see below, it is a scary bridge until you get used to it.
Yogi on the bridge, gazing at ducks.
funny, I did NOT lose my glove
Yogi is like "Bridge?  No big deal! Let's go across and have treats!"

you can see the scary narrow pathway with open water to one side and a metal grid for the bridge deck

Us below:  like they said on Wayne's World "unneccesary zoom!"

You may need some of my fine pots, and so many good ones are available NOW at my etsy shoppe!

Let Penny know we were talking during a meeting yesterday about her work at the care home. Even people in Canada who haven't met Penny think she's very cool.

Yogi is a very cute pup, but Penny is perfection. And, being a cat person, I am totally enamoured with Spike. :)

As the owner of 4 dog I can tell you that it's possible to love more than one. They are both really cute and cuddly looking.

Yikes! I can see why they could be scared of that bridge. Brave Yogi!

Hilary said...

She's so adorable. And of course, so is Penny.
