Lots of dogs love to go to Doggy Daycare. One dog, however, loves daycare so much that he ran away from home to go visit his friends there!
According to CNN, Riley the golden retriever and his owner were out for a drive one morning when they drove past a group of dogs from the daycare he attends. Riley was excited and happy to see them, reports his owner, Tonia Mosteller. “Riley was crying because he loves to play, he loves happy dogs,” Mosteller told CNN.
But the two went on their way, with Riley whining the whole way home.
Mosteller thought that was the end of it but Riley had other plans. A short time later, Riley was playing in the backyard and decided to take matters into his own paws.
A great reminder from one of my Facebook friends on taking care of your pets during this extra-noisy season. My dogs have been turned into quivering little puddles of Jell-O with people setting off firecrackers a few days early. Grrrr. Until next time, Good day, and good dog!
The American Kennel Club (AKC®) announced the launch of the brand new “I Am a Breeder” video series. The series is aimed at promoting responsible breeders and the love they have for their dogs to the general public. “Responsible dog breeders have a depth of knowledge and a level of commitment to purebred dogs that […]
For whatever cosmic reasons beyond my complete comprehension the Week of the 19th of June is what the Japanese call, “Mono no aware” – both beauty and pain, celebration and sadness…
It’s always the week of Father’s Day, the anniversary of the Final Mile in Boston, the passing of my boy Murphy, and the birth of Indiana Jones. It’s also the week of the summer solstice whose Latin translation roughly means the day the sun stands still. When there is the least darkness.
Every year it’s a week I’d just like to fast forward through and move on because it can be too much for even me to shoulder. And I’ve carried a ton of weight for some time. But no one gets that option when you allow yourself to love absolutely.
Five years ago today I gave Murphy rest and five years later I still weep inconsolably when I write about him. His final days we spent together listening to Garth Brook’s song The Dance and he loved it before I even realized the significance of the lyrics. Paraphrasing them, ‘I’m glad I didn’t know the way it all would end. But even if I did, I wouldn’t have missed the dance.’
Just like every light begins with darkness the Week of the 19th is about the lessons from life’s inflections. For me it’s been both a beginning and an ending and the promise and the pain of love as well.
Yesterday was the first official day of summer, and we think that’s reason to celebrate.

And now one lucky Bubby and Bean reader is going to get a $ 100 gift card to spend on Gaia Conceptions clothing of your very own!
