Puppy Party Poll

With the US general election drawing closer and closer, there’s a lot of talk about parties, polls, and the choices facing undecided voters. Of course, some parties are easier to embrace than those with donkeys or elephants, and the Beloved and I got to spend a bit of our Saturday at a convention of sorts…

Central Coast Dog Days

Penny here. Most often, Friday nights are pretty easy around here. There’s usually a trip to the chaparral and then comes the drink-making (I never get one, but after they’ve had a couple, I can always count on more treats…) and the dinner-making and the whole weekend thing gets started. I like weekends. My people…

Vacation’s Dog Days

If there was anything that could be considered “the hard part” of two-plus weeks in France, it was that we couldn’t take Penny with us. Now, I don’t think that she would have liked Paris all that much (crowded streets, lots of traffic). But it was pretty easy to imagine a pointer running through the…

We’ve gone to dog beach lots of times, but usually…

So You Think You Can Show?

This past weekend, Penny got to participate in her second dog show, which was a really big two-day one that was held at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.   We’d told the breeders that we would enter her in nearby shows to increase the number of pointers in the show, which can help get more points…

2009 Favorites — Photos

With getting back from the big trip over the holidays and getting things back up and running at The Aerie, I haven't had much chance to do something that I have enjoyed in the past couple of years — reviewing some of my favorite things from the past year.  Now, I know that in this…

Labor Day Excursion

Yesterday, we took a Labor Day Weekend Excursion to another one of San Diego’s dog-favorites – Coronado’s Dog Beach.  We went down with good friends we hadn’t seen in too long and their two mini-dachshunds, Indiana Jones and Bella Xocolate – who is the newest addition to their household, about 10 weeks old. Doxie Collision…
