Summer Time!

Hi Everyone! Nymeria here! Boy, it’s been a while since we’ve blogged!

We just wanted to send everyone an update on how we’ve been! Since Mia has been recovering really well from her hip/elbow dysplasia, we’ve been taking advantage of the summer weather and going on adventures everyday!

Here are some highlights!

Avalon and I celebrated our Canadian Citizenship over the weekend on Canada Day!

Low tide fun with my bestie Avalon!

Jetty adventures!

Running in the snow IN THE SUMMER!

Farmer’s Market! MmMm Pies!

Forest Adventures!

If you want to see more updates, you can check out Mia’s Instagram account.

I’m still still figuring out how to use my Instagram but you’re welcome to check it out too!

Hope everyone is having a great summer! We’ll be back soon!

Time for a nap, we’re pooped!

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!

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!!

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)

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!

New Toys and Friday Forest Fun!

Hi Friends! It’s finally Friday! How was everyone’s week?

We’re so happy that it’s FRI-YAY! That means our weekend adventures are about to start! We haven’t had the opportunity to show you all the Christmas loot we got this year (WE GOT A LOT!) but definitely our FAVORITE gifts was…

…NEW CHUCK-IT BALLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mom, stop taking pictures and throw the ball already! Look how nicely we are sitting and patiently waiting!

Wilhelmina’s Humom bought them for me! She knows how much I love to play fetch. And because I’m such a nice sister, I shared them with Nymeria too. (I should get some extra treats for that!)

My humom was very thankful for Wilhelmina’s humom for buying me these balls because I like to chew on them. Tennis balls aren’t very safe for pups like me because we can ingest those tiny yellow fibers and it’s not good for our tummies!

I love you, little blue ball. You are my best friend (after Wilhelmina of course!)

Nymeria is a very quick study. She’s already learned that she has to sit before our humom throws the ball. (In my case she makes me lie down because sometimes I get impatient and I jump up to grab it. That is a BIG no-no…humom gets super angry when we do that). Nymeria is also figuring out that she has to bring the ball back before the next one gets thrown.  She’s not always consistent but for 2 months being here, I’d say she’s doing really well!

Here’s a video!

Do you remember in my last post I mentioned that Nymeria was really fast? In fact, sometimes TOO fast for me? Well, when it comes to chasing balls, she’s got nothing on me! Sometimes I’ll give her a chance and let her have the ball 😉

Nymeria is trying to get the ball from my mouth! But I caught it first!

We’re ready for the next throw!

Just when we thought the fun was over, our Humom took us to the forest!!!!! We thought we were going home but nope, our humom thought we could run around in the forest a bit! I was soooooooooooo so so so EXCITED!!!!!

We haven’t been able to go to the forest as often as we used to because my humom is still working on Nymeria’s recall. Since she is still a little nervous with strangers, we tend to go to off leash areas during non-peak times. Today was one of those times so Nymeria got to explore off leash on the less busier trails! She was SO HAPPY! She was really good too, she stuck close to me and Humom and when she saw other strangers walking by she would just hide behind a tree and watch them go by and then come back out.

Certain areas my humom will put her on leash because she doesn’t want Nymeria to get startled and run off deep into the forest where we can’t find her. It’s hard to find a time when the forest isn’t busy because it’s a very popular place, I mean, who wouldn’t want to take a stroll in a beautiful forest surrounded by trees, birds and water?? So any time we do go into the forest, it’s a real treat!

We had so much fun exploring together! We got super wet and muddy! It was great!

Unfortunately…the muddier the adventure, the higher change of a….BATH!!!!

Hurry! Give your best puppy dog eyes Nymeria! This is our last chance to change her mind!

Telling by how dirty our collars were…chances were slim of getting out of a bath…

In the end, it was all worth it! Boy are we pooped!!! Time to rest up for our next adventure tomorrow!!!

Good night friends! Hope you have a great weekend!
