We are doing it again!

The Curly Tails are taking part in Puppy Up 2017!

This year the walk is happening on Sunday, May 7th. We had to do a little strategic planning because our kennel club's yearly dog show is the same weekend and we usually do some volunteering for that every year as well.

So our Friday will be spent at the dog show and Sunday belongs to Puppy Up :)

Sadly this year we will be walking for a few of our very good dog friends.

We will be walking for beautiful Jubilee the great dane, who is currently facing the possibility of osteosarcoma. We are still hoping for a more positive diagnosis, but even the thought of potential cancer is a saddening and scary.

We will be walking for Pip. Who is a sweet and jolly boy and likes to keep his owner company on her camping adventures.

We will be walking for Sadie the Lab. Who spend her life making life easier for someone by being a service dog. She came to retire with the person who raised her as a puppy when she was diagnosed with cancer.

Please help us support these dogs. Donate if you can. If you live in the area and would like to walk with us you can join Team Curly Tails. We would love your company!

Shaking off cabin fever...

The weather has been very back and forth the last month. Every time I want to get the curly tails out to let them get over their winter crazies it turned unfriendly enough to keep us inside after all.

Today though we refused to be deterred. Instead we went to check out the new dog park that has been installed in our neighborhood. Guys...this park is tiny. Just large enough for the dynamic duo to have a little romp and play...but I would not go there if there were a bunch of other dogs there. Not enough space to avoid potential trouble there (unlike in our favorite parks in the area where there is lots of walking space). It's not too bad for a mellow outing with just the curly tails or the duo and one of their good friends like Indy or Zoe.

I got a few pictures to try out a new lens that the husband got for me as a present :)

There was a lot of this happening...

She is coming to get meeeeeee...

Oxy and Tosin

Visited the basenji pups again today. They are so sweet! Here are a few pictures :)

You stick your foot in my mouth and I am gonna bite it!



Woobleboards are no big deal!


Mom is visiting!

What a sweet boy!

That little stretched out paw just kills me...

Look how perfect she is!

Basenji babies after all :)

So while Watson's breeder Laurel basenji did not bless us with a charming litter of basenjis this winter someone else in the club had a litter of two of the most adorable little basenjis. I was lucky enough to get to visit this pair last week and today. I got a few pictures to share with everyone, because puppies are good for the soul! I think we could all use something to soothe our souls these days...

The little ones are currently called Oxy and Tosin :) Oxy is the little brindle girl, and Tosin is the red and white gentleman.

Flirt poles are fun


Brothers are the best pillows!

Sweet little guy

Toes are interesting...


Just look at those little faces!!!

A Great Dane Christmas

Went to visit Joan, Jubilee, and the pups today. Out of the eleven there are 6 left, 5 have gone to their new homes.

Since there were less puppies and therefore a little less chaos we decided to get a few Christmas themed pics.

Appreciate these photos...

It took the work of three people...

The sacrifice of a few toys... 

Joan making the oddest noises...

And a lot of laughter...

To take these!

You may ask how hard can it be to take a picture of a puppy in a basket?

We answered that question...

The answer is that it's far harder than it looks...

Sure he is nice and still now...

Mostly because he was tired!
