    Kubota Garden In Seattle, Washington

    By

    I recently traveled to Seattle to visit my niece who was 8 months pregnant.  Needless to say I was not able to enjoy most of the things I normally do when I visit like hiking in Mt. Rainier National Park.  After spending several days eating, including an evening spent enjoying way too much food at a Taste of West Seattle

    Exercise Like A Puppy

    By

    Have you ever seen a puppy play?  They run around like crazy for 10 to 15 minutes and then collapse.  After a rest they do it all over again.  And they have so much fun when they are moving around. It is often difficult to schedule an hour to walk every single day.  So many obstacles are thrown in your path

    Walking With An Umbrella

    By

    We have had an unusual amount of rain in Atlanta this winter.  In fact we have gone from drought conditions to having flash flood warnings in a matter of weeks if not days.  A couple of days ago I got up early to try to beat yet another storm that was heading our way.  Thanks to all the weather phone

    Wil Wheaton – The Benefits of Walking Your Dog

    By

    Many of you know Wil Wheaton from Star Trek – The Next Generation.  However, my favorite part is his reoccurring role playing a fictional version of himself on the Big Bang Theory.  Wil is always using psychological warfare against Sheldon Cooper.  Sheldon hates to lose and their interaction is always hilarious.  Wil Wheaton and other dog owners were recently interviewed about the benefits

    Get Up and Get Moving

    By

      When Jaycee was younger I would stand the couch cushions up so she would not be able to lie on the couch.   She was not deterred; she just made the best of a bad situation.  The fact is she was comfortable sitting under the cushions. I on the other hand had nowhere to sit.  It was just as well.

      Turn your camera into an entertainment center if you are stuck in your house.  It may be the weather that keeps you inside or a kid who is not sick enough to be confined to bed but not well enough to go to school.  This is the perfect time to have fun with your camera.  My nephew is a

    Taking A Weather Break

    The sun will come out again……..but not today.  Jaycee and I walk in all kinds of weather – fog, rain, snow, you name it.  Jaycee hates and I mean hates to get her feet wet so once the puddles start to build it is just not worth it.  She will jump over puddles large and small almost pulling my arm

  • Playing Fetch On Our Walk

    By

    There are dogs that are boring and there are dogs that are like “Marley and Me.”  Our dog, Chance, has a lot of personality.  On our walks, everyone he meets is an immediate friend.   Growls and nips from other dogs are overlooked as signs of affection. He would never dream that the world isn’t filled with playground buddies. Friends bought us a door mat

    Rainy Day Dog Walk

    Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet will keep us from our morning walk no matter how unhappy it makes one of us.
