Let the Sunshine In!

G can sniff out a sun spot a mile away and this weekend was no different. I found G in this position a lot when she wasn't outside basking in the sun (read: grazing in the grass). If you note the cat ear shadow in the lower left as well - the kittles were all over the gorgeous weather!


I call this G's Phantom of the Opera face:

Must Be Fall!

We broke out G's fall collar (and bought a new bone to chew on) to celebrate the BE-A-YOU-TEE-FULL fall weekend. What did the blogosphere do to celebrate the return of fall?

TGIF: We Heart Parks!!

Well, in honor of fall and the return of one of our favorite shows "Parks & Rec," I figured I should post some shots of G enjoying our closest park (Riverside - the best one!!). You can tell how excited G is because she's in her requisite frog legs pose.



And, because it's Friday, G would like to remind you to get outside and enjoy the beautiful fall weather this weekend:

Not Moving, Can't Make Me

G is a professional stop-and-dropper.

When she's done walking or doesn't want to go in a certain direction (ie away from any type of plant life she could possibly ingest), she simply puts on the brakes and lies down. This was cute the first 4 or 5 times she executed The Flop, but nowadays, it's pretty boring. Imagine getting all amped up to go for a walk, only to have Debbie Downer on the other end of the leash decide she's finished with the outing (I'll let you figure out which end of the leash I'm referencing).

In any event, this past Saturday, G parked it with stick in hand (er, mouth?) smack in the center of the sidewalk so that all who walked past her had no choice but to comment. I swear, sometimes, this dog knows what she's doing!

She got all sorts of smiles, laughs and affection from passers by and also was able to play Photoshoot Diva to one Columbia University student who wanted to use her as a subject for a photography class.

I decided I should probably snap a quick shot, too and if nothing else, at this angle you can at least tell that G is thinning out a bit (mommy is on a diet, so we're allll on a diet).

About 10 minutes later, once said stick was significantly destroyed, we got to walking again.

How do you motivate your pups to move when they just don't want to move?

Caption This!

G and I had an awesome weekend of playing and napping and snuggling and just being dorks together. After one particular hour and a half jaunt through Riverside Park down to the Boat Basin and back, G gave me a satisfied smile:


Aside from being an extremely content pittie, what do you think she's saying??
