Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Sam here. Although our lineage is German, we happily (ok, not so happily but we were tolerant) participated in the ‘wearing of the green’ for St. Patrick’s Day for mom’s sake. We had to work fast, Elsa tried hard to eat the garland. The parade and official celebration were last weekend, but any one knows that St. Patrick’s Day on a Friday will surely have some corned beef and cabbage along with a beer or two for local leprechauns.

Got any special plans for this holiday? Erin Go Bragh. ☘️ Here’s to a great weekend!








Live, love, bark!  ❤︎

Fab Friday

While mining the Internet for inspiration, I came across this short video and thought it might bring a smile to your face to your face or provide at least an a-ha! moment like it did for me. Not sure why I never thought about the introduction of play to Elsa’s daily sessions on learning how to be a dog before but am glad to have accidentally stumbled across this now. Here’s hoping there’s lots of play in store for you and your fur-iend this weekend.

Do you use play as a training tool?

Live, love, bark!

🎶 Jingle Bells 🎶

🎶 Dashing through the snow, in a two dog open sleigh,
Over the paths we go, squealing all the way
Bells on poofed up tails, making spirits bright
What fun it is to not fall down in a two Spoo sleigh tonight! 🎶

img_3933This rewrite of the classic tune is a direct result from our last snow storm and cold spell that turned a couple of sleepy dogs into rejuvenated and very frisky poodles on their walk. We wish you and yours a safe and happy Christmas!

Live, love, bark! ❤


Santa Saturday

A certain little Ninja probably initiated this lawsuit. How about you, did you follow in her pawsteps this year?


Happy Saturday. The Ranch received about 9-10 inches of the white stuff last night so I know what I’ll be doing this weekend-digging out! Hope your weekend is shovel free. Stay warm, cozy and have a cup of hot chocolate for me.

Live, love, bark! ❤
