Nosework class!

Guess what friends! My mom signed me up for this super fun class called Nosework! I sniff out these smells that are hidden in boxes and when I find it I get treats! It’s super fun!

The only part I didn’t like was having to wait my turn. I’m not a very patient pup!

When is it my turn mom??

How long do I have to wait? Sigh…

My classmates had a really good time too!

This is Lola the Vizla. She was very excitable and bounced around a lot.

This is Tucker the Beagle. He was around my age, we played a little while we waited for our turns. He was really vocal and barked a lot because he was so excited! Who could blame him??

I got really good at it by the last few classes but as you can see based on the videos, my humom still needs to practice…she kept forgetting the cue word!

I can’t wait for Level 2!

Do you guys participate in any kind of nosework class? How did you like it? Share it in the comments!

It’s called “popcorn” Nymeria! It’s SUPER TASTY! Quick! Throw your best puppy dog eyes at her so we can have a taste!

 

Ok I’ll try! How’s this??

 

Hmmm…no you gotta REALLY OPEN your eyes…like THIS!

 

Ohhh…like this??

 

YUP EXACTLY! YOU GOT IT!

Now give us some popcorn mom! Pretty please???….

Friday Forest Fun – Hidden Beach!

Hey Everyone! It’s another Forest Fun Friday for us here but this time we’re going to a forest that Nymeria has never been before! This is one of my favorite places to go because it has a hidden beach!!! I didn’t even know about it until my pal Bruno shared its secret location with me! You can read about it here!

Unfortunately…my humom forgot how to get there but luckily she had me to track it down! What a perfect new adventure for Nymeria and me!

C’mon Nymeria! Follow me! We’re going to track down the hidden beach!

Are you coming Mom? Hurry up! You’re holding us back!

Hmmm…which way do we go now…

Don’t worry, I got this.

Hmmm…maybe I can get a better view from up here!

I think I found it Nymeria! I recognize this path!

Mia! Wait for me!

Mom, are you coming?? Stop taking pictures, let’s go!

I did it Mom! I found it! We’re finally here!

C’mon Nymeria! Let’s go explore!

This place is still as beautiful as I remembered it!

I love it here! I don’t ever want to leave!

Don’t worry Nymeria! Mom will bring us back here lots more times!

I found a delicious giant snowball to eat too! Yum yum! What a thirst quencher after all that exploring!

On the car ride home, I was trying to convince my humom that I wasn’t tired so we could go play some more. I don’t think I was very convincing…and Nymeria was no help at all. She was totally passed out in the back!

I guess I’ll take a nap too…

I can’t wait for our next adventure! Hope everyone has a fun weekend!

Throwback Thursday – Christmas Holidays

Since it’s Thursday, I thought I should throw it back to the holidays and share a bit of what we did!

This was our Christmas tree! It was my very first Christmas tree! (We didn’t have one last year because I was too scared of them).

190CE94A-DD33-4684-8BB6-14AEBBCA11F6

This year though, we had a couple of very special decorations. Instead of putting a star on top, my humom put a beautiful little snow owl in memory of my Angel brother Keiko.

She also got a special Christmas ornament with his name on it.

2BD48370-AE23-412D-AAC0-90C5C139FB98

I supervised the whole thing, making sure all the decorations were in the right place. I had to take a nap afterwards, it’s very tiring being a supervisor!

The best part of the holidays is when my FAVORITE AUNTIE IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD comes to visit! She’s my humom’s younger sister. I did an intro post about her last year, you can read it here.

We always have so much fun together, this one time she took me to the beach to play fetch! If you missed that post, you can read it here!

I love sitting on Auntie’s lap! (I’m in denial that I’m too big to be a lap dog)

When she visits, she always stays at the parents’ house. I wish she could stay with us but our apartment isn’t big enough. My humom’s parents’ house is REALLY BIG! but…us dogs are only allowed in the kitchen.

This would be the first time Nymeria would meet my humom’s whole family. She even met my humom’s brother, wife and son! They were visiting from Hawaii and my humom said she did very well. She was a little nervous but she sat quietly behind Humom. Unfortunately we didn’t get any photos, Humom forgot to take some!

While the humans were waiting for the food to be ready, I was watching my Auntie make this little fluffy ball thingy for her dad’s knitted hat (she knitted him a hat for Christmas!) I thought it was a toy so I kept staring at it, waiting for Auntie to give it to me. I think she called it a “pom-pom” or something. She ended making me one but it didn’t last very long…

Nymeria whined a little bit throughout the night, but I tried to comfort her like a good big sister! Humom was very proud of me. 🙂

Eventually she was able to relax and took a nap while the humans were eating.

After dinner, my humom’s dad took out this weird contraption called a “oo-ka-lee-lee”. It plays music when you touch the strings.

My Auntie serenaded me with it later on in the night!

As you can see I enjoyed it very much!

My humom knew that it was time to go home when I jumped into her lap to sleep.

I can’t wait until my Auntie comes back to visit! I think my humom said she will be back during broken Spring? I don’t really know what that means…how do you break Spring? Something about my Auntie not having to go to class for a week so she’s going to come home to celebrate my humom’s birthday!

Happy Thursday everyone!

Sunday Funday – Puppy Sitting!

Hi Guys! Nymeria here! Mia FINALLY let me take over the blog today since today’s post doesn’t really involve her much. She was too busy HIDING from a tiny little puppy named–

Mia: Excuse me?? How dare you say that?? I wasn’t hiding…I was getting out of your way since you two were running around everywhere!

Well it’s my blog post today so I’m going to say you were HIDING! HA! Anyway, before I was RUDELY interrupted…I was going to say..the puppy’s name is Radar!

He’s a 4 month old French Bulldog and boy does he have a lot of energy! This chubby little nugget was non-stop!

My humom tried really hard to get some good photos but all she got were white blurs! BOL!

1DF867BE-9219-4E3F-B12C-26A1E2FF898B

We had so much fun playing together, both my humom and Radar’s humom were really surprised! (Because of our size difference)  But my humom was really proud of me because I was really gentle with him.

He settled into our place quite quickly! The first thing he did when he came in was grab a bone and went on the bed to chew on it! What a character!

He also helped himself to our toy bin!

But I didn’t mind, I was good at sharing my toys. Well…maybe not my favorite ones…but I let him have my snake rope. (Actually it used to be Mia’s but she doesn’t play with it anymore).

My humom started to miss Mia’s puppy days until Radar had an accident on the rug…and then in the bedroom (that one was a STINKY ONE!)..and then another accident under the dining table…in the hallway….where did this guy hold all his pee??? Even though she had placed a pee pad on the floor…he never used it. BOL!

Mia never really warmed up to him by the time Radar’s humom came to pick him up, but I sure hope he come back!

I hope he doesn’t come back!

Hope you guys had a great weekend!

Friday Forest Fun with Friends!

Happy Friday Everyone!

How was everyone’s week? Are you glad it’s finally the weekend?

This week’s forest fun is brought to you by myself, Nymeria, Bruno and Pyper! You might have seen Pyper in a couple of my posts, we ran into each other at lowtide last summer and I also featured her on my National Black Dog day post!

Pyper’s humom saw how much fun I was having in the forest from my Instagram page so she asked to join us the next time we were going! The more the merrier!!

C789088A-7D32-4173-B4B0-D1C73AB18F71

It was a dark and very wet dreary day but the great company sure made up for it! We had a lot of fun running around, sniffing things and getting lots of treats!

Hey! Wait up guys!

My humom kept telling me to stop showing off to Pyper’s humom. What??? How dare you Mom! I like jumping on stumps! I do it for the treats!!! (Okay MAYBE I like the attention too..heehee)

DSC_0296

Of course, the humoms all wanted at least one nice group shot of us but it was proving to be very difficult because Nymeria refused to cooperate! In her defense, she had never met Pyper’s humom and Bruno’s humom only a handful of times…so that kind of made her a little nervous.

This was the best we could get BOL!

Nymeria: Uh…Excuse me?? I was not nervous…I was letting you guys have the limelight because if I showed up I would have stolen the show…I mean…look how majestic I look on this rock!

Mia: Uh..yea sure Nymeria. Whatever you say *rolleyes*

There were a couple of women that were watching us get our photos taken and one of them commented on how similar Pyper and I look! She asked if we were siblings!

On our way back my humom suggested that Bruno’s humom try and give Nymeria a treat. Last time she was too shy to take it, but this time my humom was prepared!…She brought little bits of pepperoni (for dogs)!!!

Success!!!

By the way, these AMAZINGGGGG photos were taken by Pyper’s humom. She brought a really fancy camera and snapped a bunch of great shots. My humom was sad that her camera phone died really early into our walk but was so very happy that Pyper’s humom was taking so many photos of everyone!

Well that’s all I got for today! Have a great weekend everyone!

Pee S. If you noticed that I was the only one that didn’t have a jacket on…I did at the start of the walk but after running around through the forest it fell off!! Luckily I knew where it fell and I led my mom to it and she decided to let me run nakie! Weee!

Double Mischief Monday- Caught in the act!

It’s another Monday and that means another installment of Mischief Monday!

This time though, my humom thought it was pretty funny…no no, she’s feeling fine don’t worry. She thought it was funny this time because she was so focused on me that little did she know…she also caught Nymeria in the act!

She didn’t realize she caught Nymeria on camera until she went back much later to look through her photos! BOL!

BUSTED!

Hope you guys make it through Monday! Did you get into any mischief??

Pee S. In case you were wondering what we were rolling in…it was sea otter poop!! It’s like the jackpot of poops cuz it’s super fishy and stinky and leaves this PAWSOME dark green color on your body and clothes! It also tastes super yummy too! :p
