Trip Pictures

     Hi, everyone! I'm finally back home! Whew, it was a long four days.
Dachshund Mommy: I didn't fully realize how crazy active my dogs are till we were in Richmond and they were cooped up inside most of the day. Nola about went crazy! Jumpy with people, extra barky, possessive of toys and chewies (with the other dogs; Nola has never ever been possessive of toys or food with me), got frustrated very easily.... It was a nightmare for her! 

     As Mom said, we were stuck inside for most of the trip but we did get to go on a few fun walks! I love bouncing in the fallen leaves (which we don't have in FL)!
Mom managed to restrain herself somewhat and only took about 340 pictures, BOL! Here's just a few of them. Bear with me; I don't have the beautiful fall colors and cool plants and trees anyone whose up north has.

     On an entirely unrelated note, thank you so, so much to all who donated to Mr. B's headstone. It means to world to us and to Mrs. E.

    On another unrelated note, anyone who entered my Halloweenie costume contest (I tried post everyone's photos, but Blogger ate them!) please enter your pictures to be entered into the big contest for a $500 Target gift card!

Kisses and Tail Wags,
Dachshund Nola
Dachshund Nola is NOT amused. 

Don't hate me cuz I'm beautiful




Mom adores this picture








Although the weather was lovely and the colors were stunning, Mom can't deal with that dreary sky!

Can you see that black cat?


It's a bald eagle 



BOL! Look, I found a sign just for Mom!

  10. We talk about exercise for fitness on our blog but it is well known that exercise is also a huge key to a well-behaved dog. If you are having behavioral issues one of the first things a trainer will do is look at how much physical activity your dog is getting. You probably knew that but your post reminded me of that fact and drove the point home.
