Sisters on Saturday!

I found this interesting tree down by the river at the park we go to and had the girls pose with it! Off to the right is the river! Last week, this tree was in the river!

A Perfect Day For Dog Training!

Have you ever had one of those just absolutely perfect days? You wake up and the sun is shining and you know it's going to be awesome? Well, as I said yesterday I'm not really a morning person. I don't really do the whole rising and shining thing. More like I grumble about how I could still be sleeping until a little bit of caffeine kicks in.

Gold Paw Series "Stretch Fleece Coats" Review

Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a great day! Today I have a review for you on the Stretch Fleece coat from Gold Paws Series. I received these coats in exchange for an honest review but I was not monetarily compensated.

Lately the weather has been pretty good for Oregon! We've had some really nice, sunny days but it's still pretty cold outside. Especially in the early morning and at night. I've been inspired by KB from Romping and Rolling in the Rockies and we've been getting up super early and hitting the hiking trails!

Ears! Wordless Wednesday

One of my most favorite things about my girls are their funny ears! I never know what I'm going to get when I set out to photograph them and it totally cracks me up.

Best Bully Sticks Review

Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a great Tasty Tuesday! Today I have a review for you on two items from an amazing company called Best Bully Sticks! You can check out their website with the previous link or their facebook page. We received our treats in exchange for an honest review but I was not monetarily compensated.

It's National Dental Health month and one of my favorite ways to keep their teeth in good shape is to give them chewies. Most dogs love to chew and my dogs are no exception. They were so excited to get these treats!

Zoe wants Cookies! Monday Mischief

We decided to re-create that funny meme with the labs!

I actually got this picture spontaneously! Phoenix missed her cue to "sit pretty" so Zoe decided to help her out! LOL! Also, Zoe would like to steal all the cookies!

I hope you are all having an awesome Sunday!

Smiling on Sepia Saturday

Yesterday I talked about how the wind spooks her. After we got to the park where the wind is less she was so much happier! I was able to capture a bit of a smile!

Walks at the big park! Fit Dog Friday

We got up super early and took my husband to work a few days this past week and then headed over to the big thousand acre park for exercise! It was so windy that it made Phoenix's ears stand right up!

Zoe at the beach! Throwback Thursday

I took this a few years ago before we got Phoenix! It was one of those days where all of my clients magically cancelled and it was such a beautiful day that I put Zoe in the car and drove to the coast. This is still one of my most favorite pictures of her that I've ever taken.

Hound-ish Wordless Wednesday

I posted this photo on my facebook page and one of my closest friends commented about how Phoenix looks so much like a sight hound here. I tend to agree! :D

Happy Wordless Wednesday everyone! I hope you all have a fantastic day!

Today I am reviewing Blue Bones, an all natural dental chew! We did receive our package of Blue Bones in exchange for an honest review but we were not monetarily compensated to spread the word about them.

Where'd Zoe go? Monday Mischief

Somebody (cough...Phoenix...cough) was SO busy eating grass that she lost her sister! Somebody has to keep an eye on that naughty dog who wanders off after errant rodents!!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope you are all having a great day full of love! My husband is working today so I'm spending the day with the girls! Here's a few pictures from our Valentine's Day shoot!

It's okay to put a coat on your dog, really.

Yesterday I saw a picture of a beautiful German Shepherd. I don't know exactly where I saw it but the dog was totally stunning and was sitting in a field full of flowers. I really wanted to hit the like button until I read the comment that went with it. It said something along the lines of: "I'm so sick and tired of seeing all of these tiny dogs all dressed up. Here's a picture of a real dog." Seriously?? Sigh.

Living the Anxious Life!

I'm sorry that I didn't get around to everyone's blogs yesterday! I had a really bad migraine for most of the day and looking at shiny screens doesn't work out very well. I spent most of the day in bed hiding from the light! I'm feeling a little better now but my head is still pounding.

I can cue "sad, puppy eyes" if only I could cue happy. Sigh.

Two nights ago we had a thunderstorm roll in. It was one of those weird freak things. Yes, it rains a bunch in Oregon but we don't usually have thunder. My husband said to me, "the weather app says it's going to thunder!" and then we laughed about how the weather apps are always wrong and went on with our evening.

Mud, Mud and More Mud!

Happy Wordless Wednesday everyone!

It's a mud pit here after all the rain!I will admit that I'm getting a little tired of the mud. We've been covered in it for over a week. LOL

January PetBox Review

I'm so excited to let everyone know that Zoe is a new "Spokesdoggie" for PetBox! So that means we will have a PetBox review for you every month! You can also use the promo code: ZOEPHEE to get 10% off your first petbox! How neat is that? Zoe is super excited to take on this job as she is an expert poser and taste tester extraordinaire! Phoenix will be helping out, too since she's our resident toy tester!

We do receive PetBox in exchange for an honest review.

Phoenix makes new friends! Monday Mischief

It's been pretty rainy lately but in between the breaks in the rain, I've been using the new dog park that our apartment complex installed. I've mostly been using it when there's no one else in there. Most of the dogs in our complex are not friendly.

Sisters on Sunday

We are getting ready to do some more posed photo shoots! I have a bunch of reviews to get done. In between posing them with stuff I like to take a few "together" shots and some separate ones.

It's really interesting how sometimes Zoe is just so into getting her picture taken but at other times she isn't. Whenever either of them has an "off" day they are not made to continue.

I'm hoping the weather clears up soon so we can get some outdoor shots. I know the indoor ones can get boring after a while!

Sleepy Saturday

"I'm not getting off this couch, you can't make me!"

We are having a "Pineapple Express" storm here this weekend and the girls declared today "Sleepy Saturday". 

That's my husband's maple tree and it's covered in raindrops! I can't wait until this tree has leaves again! It's beautiful. It's the first thing we bought together when we moved to Oregon the first time. We got it at a Farmer's Market. It was so tiny when we got it!

Liebster Award!

Stress Signals and Photography

Have you ever posted what you thought was a cute picture on a facebook group (or any sort of internet forum) and then had it torn to pieces by people or taken wildly out of context?

Zuke's Mini Naturals Review

Happy Tasty Tuesday everyone! I hope you are all having a fantastic day! We are so excited to share this review and giveaway with everyone! It's also Responsible Pet Owner's Month, too! I feel that a major part of being a responsible pet owner is training your dogs and Zuke's makes that a little bit easier with their Mini Natural Training Treats! We were given a set of their Mini Naturals in exchange for an honest review but we were not monetarily compensated.

Dognapped by the DogFather!

The "DogFather" dognapped us in the name of this weird thing called "exercise"!!! 

Remember my post on Fitdog Friday about my husband taking the dogs to the park? Here's their mischief post! :D

Visited the Duck Pond! B&W Sunday

I took the girls for a quick walk to the duck pond and since it's been sunny for a few days, Zoe got to leave her booties off! She was pretty happy about it.
