Hudson Valley Dog Boarding
Dec 10 2013

Dogs are a pleasure and funny creatures too

Fancy Face and Al Lou loved each other and agreed to arrange to have their people go on holiday at the same time in the future so they could frolic together again

Fancy Face can curl her tongue

Ruda and I often like to sit on each other and stare into space

Those who sit above and those who sit on

If your dogs have a penchant for sitting above or on, give me a call and let’s talk about dog boarding and perching.

Winter Walk

A walk from a week ago. I had Henry and Buster and we went with Ayumi, Clover and Poncho to Lake Louise. One of my favorite hikes close to me. (click on any pic to enlarge)

Buster fancy pants, he's a good boy, he is

It's hard to tell which way we're going on the steps. Technically we were going down

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nothing like a leap over logs to make for a good walk in the woods

Big Head Little Feet is what I like to call Poncho

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Henry and Clover wrestling on the path. Which can be complicated for us bipedals on the walk if we're not paying attention..

More wrestling while walking. A gift dogs master while very young

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Clover streaks over a log like a superhero in a yellow cape

I love bridges and other walkways that pop up on hikes, I'm like a kid that way.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you Ayumi Horie for taking most of the pictures!

Henry and Rusty

These two aren’t inclined to play together for too long, but just enough for me to take a few pictures of these two handsome canines. You can click on any picture to enlarge it.

We had some sun yesterday. Every little bit counts. There's sweet Lexy in the picture too.

Contact!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rusty in the sun, shiny and bright.

Henry the Cute. Loads of personality, this one.

Ozzie, the king of calm

Meet Ozzie, he's a very mellow guy rescued from down south. One of my favorites because he lets me kiss his squishy face for several minutes without losing patience.

When confronted with a days many options, he's one of those guys that says, "Hey, I'm up for it, let's just keep it chill."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Even Hope the Cat goes out of her way to connect with Ozzie. She likes him so much I've seen her weave between his legs and bump her head against his face for a quick rub.

The only question is, When's he coming back?

Sad to see them go

The sweetest beloved, TBoneSallie. She has a huge chunk of my heart.

Something has come up for me, being a boarder of dogs. A sadness in seeing the dogs go back home. An attachment grows and I regret when they leave.
When I had a dog walking business in NYC and used to pet sit, it didn’t bother me as much to leave my dogs because the next day I would be back, taking them for their walks. Now that I’m out of the city, upstate and not walking dogs daily, I only see my dogs the next time my clients go out of town. It’s a different relationship now. Maybe this sadness is a luxury to feel, someone might roll their eyes even, but it’s real for me.

 

Otis, scrappy and happy. An excellent, gentle playfulness.

 

 

 

 

Just now, not but two minutes ago I said goodbye to Otis. He’s like furry sunshine and although our house is happy it’s not quite as bright when he leaves.

 

 

Penny, she can melt anyone's heart, dogs and people alike.

 

The more I think about this, I begin to believe it is a luxury to feel this particular kind of melancholy. How many people get to have these temporary relationships, with dogs or anyone else for that matter? Brief times of cuddling and caring for someone, then the goodbye and eventually a hello again? This experience is an example of that which “hurts so good”.
