Happy Gotcha Day Marley

I can't believe I've shared my life with Marley for three years, unbelievable. Marley is now about 4ish and as feisty as the day I picked her up at the shelter.

Marley doing what she does best.

My live is so much fuller with Marley as a companion.

Blue Steel

Marley thinks she has a future in modeling, after all if Derek Zoolander can do it with Blue Steel it can't be that difficult.

First we found a nice spot where Marley used a rock to appear taller, after all she wants to be a Super Model not a petite model.

She then tried a few looks...

Black and White Day

Marley has been sick and we have spent a lot of time at home, driving each other crazy. Yesterday was simply gorgeous and we couldn't resist a trip to the park. Unfortunately nobody told us it was black and white day at the park.

We had a great time, until Marley noticed the UFOs on the horizon. She does not like kites, she insists on barking at them until they go away.

Why is it so hard?

I just realized there are three things at are extremely difficult when owning a dog.
  1. After a dog plays run-away, not yelling is difficult. When Marley decided to play this game I thought my head would explode from the effort of not yelling at her when she finally stopped and allowed herself to be caught.

  2. Not laughing at a naughty dog. I love it when my instructors dog is naughty in class. I know laughing will encourage the behavior and I know I shouldn't encourage naughty behavior. I end up smirking instead of laughing, however it is really hard not to laugh.

  3. Feeling guilty about leaving my dog home. I'm taking a couple of classes and Marley spends two days of the week home with Bob. I don't like that it disrupts our park schedule and fun time. On those days I have our fabulous dog walker visit Marley and I make extra trips home to provide mini-walks; however, I still feel guilty.
