The randomness of dog walking...

One of the many things I love about this "job" is all the fantastic / crazy / funny things I see everyday. In my former career (visual buyer for a fashion company in downtown LA) my days completely lacked the following "bits of life"...

Most of these pictures are silly cell phone snap shots... But you'll get the idea.
#1 Sunsets! I love being able to see the sunset almost everyday...
#2 Unconditional Love. Riley here loves his belly rubbed and will do some crazy acrobatics to get himself on his back (while wiggling) to get some attention. It's such a highlight of my day to be able to make an animal happy by a simple walk, belly rub or being there for feeding time.
#3 Katie (pictured above - being toweled off after a walk in the rain). She has learned the sound of my car and will RUN to the gate the second she knows I'm there... How sweet is that?

#4 Dogs who appear to be pondering "life" or just checkin out the waves.. Not sure.
(Zero above - picture taken about 2 years ago)
Riley also checkin the surf....
#5 Spike is enjoying a bone that is almost bigger than he is! This picture reminds me how much love there is in the world... (I know I sound totally nuts)
But, my clients LOVE their pets so much! I am so blessed to be apart of their daily lives.
#6 Randomness. Sometimes I witness some crazy things. This day was one of them. This pup decided he wanted to carry his own poop bag. I certainly wouldn't refuse that, right?! I'm not kidding, he actually took it from me... Granted we were 3 steps from the trash (and really he just wanted a treat).. But wow, what a funny moment.

Week of rain

Last week was crazy! 5 straight days of rain... The severe wind and cold temperatures certainly didn't make it any easier!

Yes, we do walk in the rain... But when it becomes uncomfortable to the dogs we certainly cut walks short (which also allows us time to towel dry the wet paws and tummies).

I took these pictures last Thursday evening....
