Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! 

Waking up this morning we still can’t believe it! Saturday night, at the Nose to Nose awards for the BlogPaws conference 2015, we won the best pet photo award for the picture below.

 We were up against some hard competition but Basil’s cuteness prevail! Although we were unable to attend the conference this year we were able to watch it streaming live on YouTube.

I want to thank BlogPaws for this award and everyone that reads this blog and loves my dog, we are truly thankful!

Now to start planning for the 2016 BlogPaws conference being held in Phoenix, AZ. Xoxo

Basil discovers the joy of mud!

Happy Monday everyone! This Monday started with a smile. Mostly because we had such a causal, fun, relaxing weekend. Saturday was spent at my parents yard sale and just hanging out with family. Yesterday, Sunday, was a hot one! We decided that Basil needed a little dog park time and headed to our favorite local park. Although it was hot outside the large trees at the park gave us some much needed shade while Basil and his newly made friends ran around like crazy.
After a few buckets of drinking water got turned over a nice, new mud hole appeared. I’ve never seen Basil interested in mud. I mean this is a dog that walks out of his way to avoid a puddle but today was different story. Once he realized that mud was cool on his hot belly our little black and white dog turned into our little brown dog!
Check out these photos and the video of Basil’s first adventure in mud! I don’t know if I’ve ever seen my dog this happy!

Basil loves mud! Basil loves mud! Basil loves mud! Basil loves mud! Basil before mud!

Hope you aren’t having a case of the Mondays! If you are just watch this video a couple of times… it will help!

Travel well, nap well, live well!
