Vizsla Country

It’s been quite a while since we last posted, taking some time to get outside and breath again, sometimes it is vital to survival to step back and see what is really happening in your life and how to better it! This post is about Jim, Bodi and Oli getting out and spending some time […]

The lazy dog days

As the days go by, Bodi and Oliver have become friends… I won’t say great friends, Bodi always has a little bit of animosity towards Oliver – just that little edge, but all-in-all it’s much better. The two have taken to “owning” the sofa as they collect the last rays of sunlight in the late […]

The Boys & The Bully Sticks

What is it about the Bully Stick that just sends these boys into complete rapture – moaning and talking to the treat, totally oblivious to everything else that is going on, totally engrossed in the job at hand. I still remember the first time that we gave Tucker a Bully Stick – we had taken […]

The Dogs of Our Lives… II

A big thanks to all for the information and kind words. This is from our good friend (and the boys vet): “Here is my take on the matter: Since Bodi’s injury, there has been some disruption to the dominance hierarchy in your household. I think Bodi’s behavior represents his attempt to re-establish his dominance. As […]

From The Heart…

Saw this on another site and wanted to share it, I am not claiming to have written it, but it is beautiful, and comes from the heart… I stood by your bed last night …I came to have a peep. I could see that you’d been crying,and you found it hard to sleep. I whined […]

“Snakebitten” for the first time

Thursday 9.23.10 – approx 5:30PM: Nancy, Bodi and Oliver were out on the trails for a evening walk, Nancy originally was not going to take them as her foot is still healing from the last time that – chasing something in the backyard – the boys had damaged her foot by using it for traction […]

Sleeping with the enemy…

This is an all to common occurrence, the morning ritual, after the potty break – The boys decide that… IT’S ON – How could either one of us actually let dad sleep when we both want the prime real estate next to his head… How could that ever happen!!! Dad, trying to exert his leadership […]

Welcome Oliver to the Family

Thursday, 4.29.10, we welcomed a new “V” to the family. Oliver is a 1.5 year old that we adopted from SoCal Vizsla Rescue, He is a beautiful, extremely thin, very active, sweet young Vizsla that we will gladly welcome into his “Forever Home”. Last night was his first night with us… What a sweet boy, […]

Is This a Fetish, or Is It Love

Tucker, in his day, had a thing about Nancy’s underwear, loved to grab it and walk around the house with it.  He wouldn’t ever really hurt it, wouldn’t chew it, but loved to pick it up and carry it around with him. Always fun to explain why there is a bra in the living room, […]

The Joy Of the Toy… or… Who’s The Stupid One Now!!!

Has anybody else noticed this… You go out and spend hours picking just the right toy for your four legged kids, you spend a fortune to buy some toy with “Made in China” on it that lasts for half a day at most, you show everyone how cute the toy is and you revel in […]
