The weekly Video/Photo section highlights an Adventure, while I might also sneak in some that are humorous, adorable, or just other fun dog moments. If you have followed my blog from the beginning you know that I adopted Shadow as a puppy, and about a year later adopted Buster as a puppy.  We had many wonderful years together before experiencing the devastating loss of Buster at just seven.  It took a long time for our hearts to heal, but almost a year after his passing we welcomed little Wilma into our world.  We were devastated to loose Shadow on April 3, 2020.These two precious boys boys will be furever in our hearts! We were recently thrilled to add another amazing rescue, Gus, to our home on June 28, 2021! This Weekly Video/Photo section will allow me to share photos from all four of my rescues, whether it be a precious memory, or a current moment.

Today’s photograph is one of Gus lounging in the backyard. Although he is still a puppy, he looks so tiny in this photograph. I love his sweet little face. Here he is….

January 22, 2022 – Nahant Beach Reservation – Massachusetts

Today Wilma, Gus, and I Adventured to Nahant Beach Reservation in Nahant, Massachusetts. Nahant Beach Reservation contains approximately 67 acres of beaches, recreational areas and a promenade with views of the coast. Dogs are allowed on the beach in the off-season.

We had a fun Adventure to Nahant Beach, our new Adventure after our local walk. I was sure I had been there before but upon arrival I immediately realized I was remembering a different beach. Pleased to find a quiet location, we first headed down the bike trail, I am assuming the “promenade”. We spent some time walking before heading onto the beach. We walked around exploring this new beach, both Wilma and Gus loving the different shells, and leftovers from the sea. There was snow on the beach, and near the shoreline adding quite the picturesque scene.

After enjoying the beach we crossed the street to what appeared to be a paved trail. Wilma and Gus found even more shells and smells to appreciate. We walked a bit and enjoyed the view of the sun over the skyline. So glad we could adventure to Nahant Beach Reservation today (Rating: 3.5).

Today’s video is a precious video of Wilma and Gus bonding and playing. They often have wild keep away sessions but today was an adorable sharing of the ball. I distracted them a little by taking the video, but they soon continued. So glad to catch this sweet moment on camera. Here they are:

January 16, 2022 – Sleepy Hollow Cemetery – Massachusetts

Today Wilma, Gus, and I Adventured to the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Concord, Massachusetts. The Sleepy Hollow Cemetery is known for being the burial location for famous writers, thinkers, and Concord residents and is estimated to have over 10,000 gravesites. It was established in 1855 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

We had a unique Adventure to the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. We took one of our favorite local walks before heading over to the Sleepy Cemetery. It was nice to see the sun out, and a warmer afternoon in the mid 20’s. We parked at Monument Square and walked over to the Cemetery, however found several parking spots available near the main entrance. I did not have a specific route in mind but wanted to explore the entire area as well as locate some of author gravesites. We walked and walked, checking out the various headstones throughout. There were others walking, but it was overall quiet, besides the sound of a nearby car here and there. We found the “Author’s Ridge” and located some well-known gravesites. It was really a perfect day for a walk. So glad we could explore the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery (This blog will not be rated).

January 15, 2022 – Frigid Temperatures = Brain Games

So as my fellow New Englander’s are aware we have had several days with negative windchill temperatures, today being one of them. It is very unusual that I do not walk with the Wilma and Gus but on a day where there are windchill warnings dropping the temperature below zero an indoor day it becomes. On these days we have lots of cuddles, relaxing, and usually a new bone. Today I decided to also pull out one of the brain puzzles. It has probably been at least a year since Wilma tried this activity, and a first time with Gus. First it was Wilma’s turn. I was soooo impressed with Wilma who followed commands (as I expected) and knew exactly how to open the doors and move pieces over to ensure she devoured every treat. Just so smart! And next it was Gus’ turn to try out this fun game. Gus had no idea what to do and seemed a little nervous with this new game. He was not even drawn in by the treats, or my hints. It was quite funny watching him, my sweet boy. So glad to try some brain games today…not only a good way to practice training, but also test the skills of the snout (haha!) Maybe better luck with Gus next time (haha). A nice little variety in our day!

Wilma’s Turn!

Gus’ Turn!

Today’s photograph is one of Shadow and Buster at one of our adventures to Willard Brook Park. I used to frequent this park with this pair, and absolutely love this perfect pose. These boys were my first amazing duo, instantly best buds. I sure do miss them by my side! Here they are:

January 7, 2021 – Gus’ First Snow Storm

Today Gus finally got to see his first real snow! We have had ice, slush and flurries but today was the first fluffy, plowable snow, totaling just about six inches. Gus was quite curious at first but soon warmed up and had a blast! Wilma and Gus spent most of their time playing ball, keep away, and searching for the ball in the snow. We also made sure to enjoy some cuddles and warm, cozy naps on this snowy day! A wonderful day of fun…just need to work on training them to shovel (haha)!

Time for some videos….

Today’s photograph is one I took last week of Wilma and Gus in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Plymouth is lovely walking town which we visit every so often. I spotted this coastal Christmas tree from afar and of course could not resist posing my adorable pair at this location. If you live locally make sure you take some time to check out Plymouth. Here they are:

Other Tidbits, Fun, and News

I just wanted to give a quick update on my blog. For those who follow us regularly you may be aware I have been slacking on my Weekly Photo and Throwback sections. I have been disappointed in myself but there has been alot going on around me, distracting me from this consistency. I have decided to temporarily discontinue the Throwback blog as I have had some time to share old blogs. However on occasion I may add, or share one, but will not plan on having this as a weekly blog. I will get back to my Weekly Photo/Video posting. I guess this is as close to a New Year’s resolution as I get (haha)! Looking forward to sharing some old and new photos and videos!

January 1, 2022 – Donuts!

Today Wilma and Gus enjoyed a Dunkin Donuts donut! Unfortunately I have a slight addiction to Dunkin Donuts coffee. On occasion while ordering through the drive thru they offer the pups a donut. On our visit today they actually provided us two in a bag, so I took this treats home for them to enjoy. Honestly, I only gave them each half as it really does not seem like they need to be eating an entire donut. However they were more than pleased and Gus took some time trying to figure out how to best devour this unique treat.

I have lost my creativity for new adventures this week. Can you tell it has been raining for days? (haha!) Although I can promise we still took a rainy, local walk before stopping at Dunkin Donuts. Here they are…yum yum!
