The Best of The Days

Penny here. You know how there are lots of different kinds of days? Like most days are the “Stay and Be Good” days. That’s when my people leave for the day, but I guard the house. Sure, it’s more fun when they’re around, but a dog’s gotta do her duty, you know? Some days are…

Good Buzz

One of the logistical things we were juggling before we went to France for vacation was whether we’d be able to take delivery of our all-electric BMW ActiveE before we left. Well, it turns out that it didn’t ship down from Oxnard until the day before we left, so we postponed delivery until we got home.…

Penny’s Big Day

It was a big day around The Aerie yesterday – Penny’s 3rd Birthday! We celebrated by signing up for a 5k Walk/Run to benefit one of the local animal hospitals and shelters. Lost in the fine print of the sign-up was that we were supposed to be to the starting area around 7 a.m. Who…

Birthday Girl

It’s a big today of celebration here today at The Aerie: Penny’s second birthday!  Of course, she didn’t join our home until weeks later but two years ago today she was a squirmy little puppy that could fit on an 8.5 x 11 inch piece of paper.   It seemed appropriate that we should start…

Star-Spangled Saturday

It was quite a Saturday for The Beloved and I — with two big events scheduled on the same day.  The first was one that we’d had scheduled for a while, which was watching Zenyatta race at the Del Mar Racetrack  (where the turf meets the surf).  Now, the Beloved is a huge fan of…

Back to the Beach

One of our great joys of our old dog Eutaw’s life was retrieving bumpers out of the ocean (she was a Chesapeake Bay Retriever, afterall…).  So, one thing that we’ve been curious about was whether Penny the Pointer would show much interest in similar activities. We’ve gone to dog beach lots of times, but usually…

A Day At The Races

Yesterday, the Beloved took a day off (after a couple of long days) and we set our sights on watching a little of the Sport of Kings.  Yep, we went to the track.  Here in San Diego, that means going to the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, which is a beautiful track right by the sea.…

Dog Beach Morning

The Beloved and I are heading out of town this weekend which should be a lot of fun for us, but maybe not so much fun for Penny — who, while she’ll get great treatment from our pet-nannies, is due for quite a bit of crate time. So, as a treat for her, and hopefully…

Out and About

So, this morning I had a surprisingly pleasant little excursion.  I certainly didn’t think it was going to be because the first place was a trip to Discount Tire to repair-replace a tire that had picked up a “foreign object” while I was driving around the other day.  I was afraid that I’d have to…

Me and My Favorite Stoplight

Coming back from my piano lesson (which is on Monday evenings after work), I almost always stop for this left turn at the intersection of the Pacific Coast Highway and Carmel Valley Road.  From the light, you look down on Torrey Pines State Beach, the cliffs of Torrey Pines State Park (on the left), and…
