Happy Birthday to Beau Geste

Today I am TWO!
Beau at one year
Beau the day we got him 7/29/2010

Well it is Beau's birthday today.  Wow a two year old!  This dog is a joy to have around, he always has a smile on his face.  He still can be a stinker at times, still chewing shoes and socks among other items he is not supposed to have.
Last year for his bday he got a puppy.  This year he gets a shopping trip at the D.O.G. Bakery here in TC.
Enjoy your day Beau, we love you very much.

Let's go mud bogging!

I am not really sure if these pictures really show how dirty Max really was.  We were out for a daily walk and the dogs found a mud hole of very black dirt.  Beau only put his front feet in.  Max decided to put his whole body in.  He was stuck but was able to get out on his own.  Thankfully!  Most of the mud came off while we finished our walk before putting him back in the jeep.  When we got home it was bath time.  Lots of shampoo to get all the mud off.  Just another adventure when we are out for our walks.  We have an area here in Traverse City with lots of trails.  Good exercise for me and the boys.

Ready for Sailing season

Trying out his new lifevest


We live on a beautiful bay called  Grand Traverse West Bay.
The dogs love to wade in the water. Beau started  swimming last summer hopefully Max will this year. 
Beau started sailing last summer with his dad, on the laser.  He loved it and whines until it is his turn again. 
Our Harley loved sailing too.

Happy Birthday to Hayley

She is celebrating her 17th birthday today.  She is such a beautiful dog and I know it has a lot to do with her owner.
Millie is a corgi breeder among other delightful pursuits.
She used to live in Michigan but now lives in Kentucky.  She has a very fun blog called "MY KENTUCKY HEAVEN". 
I wish I'd had the pleasure of meeting her when she was in MI, but if I am ever in KY I will definitely be looking her up.
Our dogs are bff's with one of her pups.  You have seen him in our blog his name is Brody.

Does your dog have a "dirty little secret?"

Ours does and hopefully here is the answer!  See picture above.

Little Beau likes to eat his poo!  Yucky to us humans but yummy to him.  The concensus is he does it out of boredom.  I had tried everything from feeding him Libby's pumpkin(which is some supposed to make the poop repulsive to the dog)  to screaming at him, all that did was make him run from me with the poop in his mouth.  The look of glee on his face, catch me if you can or I dare you to take it from me!   Nothing worked he finally got smart and started doing his duty in the ivy and "hiding it" for later.
I am pretty good about picking up the doo doo daily but some days you just get too busy.
 I finally spoke to our vet and she said to "bomb him".  "WHAT" I said.  She said to put red pepper on the feces and let him have at it!  Well low and behold I think this just may work.  This afternoon was our first test and so far he has sniffed around and is not enjoying his second course!  I will probably have to reapply for a few days and keep the fresh ones picked up, but I am hoping this breaks the habit of the poop eating.  He does not eat other animals feces or our other dogs.
Wish me luck!
UPDATE: I have been using the red pepper for a few days now and it seems to be doing the job.  I sprinkle it on the fresh and pick up the day old.  Keeping my fingers crossed!

Up to Mischief AGAIN!

This is a copy of Mom's book club book for April, she was over half way through reading it until one of us wonderful pups got a hold of it.  I find it amazing that there can be other books laying around but they seem to choose my books to destroy!  Is it because my scent is on it!  I am not going out to purchase another one, I will try and keep my things picked up for now on.
