Time for some cheerful dog news.

I kept seeing this ad while catching up on episodes of “Parks and Recreation.” I never got tired of it, since it’s delightfully close to home.

Seneca River hike, Memorial Day weekend

There’s a new trail along the Seneca River, and my dad and I thought we would check it out while I was visiting. It’s very lovely, but not very long. And there are a lot of B’ville Diner cups. After the paved trail ends, things get kind of weird.

Baldwinsville schools above-ground bunker? I don't know what this was.

I take a lot of pictures looking down paths with an annoyed dog looking back at me.

More alike than I thought

IMG_1082Hiking this weekend, I had an insight about myself and my pet. Zoe is very friendly and extroverted, and I usually think of us as opposites. I actually met her at an adoption clinic when I was there to visit a very shy and reserved dog who I thought would make a good match for me.

I’m shy and have a hard time interacting with and getting to know new people, but I bond and interact very easily with dogs. Zoe has a special ability to charm people and is not at all shy, but snarls and snaps at unfamiliar dogs when she first meets them if she’s leashed.

We’re both fine with our own species when we have an opportunity to get to know new people/dogs.

It is so tough being a dog

Having to sit alongside your human all day, helping her while she works. Rough.
