Dog Days

Our family learned very early on, that my youngest truly cannot reach her inner joy without a canine friend. She's an outdoorsy type of gal, but she doesn't like to be alone. So to fill that spot in her life she's had Chief (now deceased) and Snoop who's pictured below. 

And anywhere Andrea goes, he goes too! He loves her too death... and we know if Snoop's with her, she's safe.

We found him on the internet when we lived in Alaska. And he was in San Diego. Dad was traveling to San Diego so we planned an meeting and Dad said, "yes" but one hitch... he's not leash trained. Andrea said no problem...paid for his plane ticket, put a back pack on him and put him to work delivering newspapers. I'm not sure the old owners were too happy with the work he was doing, being that they fed him real steak everyday. But he sure did seem like he liked us.

And train him she did. He is the most well behaved and balanced dog I've ever seen. Her commitment and responsibility to him has never faltered. And in return he's allowed her to have the freedom to trek around trails, lakes, neighborhoods and beaches. 

I'm feeling like I need to name today, National Hug your Dog Day!
Until tomorrow,
Java Girl
