As most of you know I met up with Emma and Bailie from My GBGV Life. These two ladies are so much fun, even on a hot, humid day in Minnesota.
Bailie sure a spunky pup, it is so hard to keep up with her.
How many dogs do you see in this picture? The correct answer is three. Bailie of course is far a head, I’m trying to catch up and Emma is hanging with the moms.
Come on mom lets go!
Emma found a great place to get out of the sun.
Bailie on the other hand is soaking up the rays.
During out play date we set aside plenty of time to chat about blogging. It is great to bounce ideas off each other, ask good and stupid question, as well as drool about the next BlogPaws Conference!
I had such a great time meeting up with my GBGV pals! Next time will be sooner then you think!
Have you ever had a play date with any of your blogging pals?
Would love to hear about them!
“Say Cheese!” -Mom
Check out who I ran into, Bailie the PR dog for My GBGV Life.
We sure enjoyed looking at the wabbits. Well, I enjoyed looking at the wabbits, Bailie wanted to chase and eat them. I really hope she doesn’t tell Emma, she might get jealous.
I’m trying to convince Bailie’s mom that her and Emma need one of these cools car to cruse around in. I can see them now driving up to Blog Paws next year in one similar!
Testing out beds…too small.
Here are some other guys I met at the expo: two Saint Berdoodles, cats, one very tall Great Dane, miniature ponies, fluffy pals, and a couple of snakes. Oh, I can’t forget to mention the giant doo-doo!
The pet expo was great, but it was even better spending time with my pal, Bailie.
What do you like to do when you hang out with your fur-iends? Are any of your fur-iends blogging dogs?
When humans go camping they bring a lot of “stuff.” But most of it is necessary such as the tent, sleeping bags, chairs, cooler of food, and fire wood. Today, I am sharing two of my favorite tips and tricks for camping with your dog.
First Tip: Yoga Mat
My humans use inflatable mats to sleep on and they bring a yoga mat for me. This provides a barrier between the ground and my bed (either a sleeping bag or a blanket) to help block out the cold that is radiating from the ground. Yoga mats are small, light weight, and very effective.
Second Tip: Free Samples
Free samples make quick and easy meals. Not only are they already in a sealed package, they are also premeasured and great for a single meal. All you need to do is bring one for each meal and they take up very little space.
Do you go camping with your dog, please share your tips and tricks with us.
This past week my humans and I went to one of the local state parks for a hike. We wanted to see if the waterfalls were open with the warm weather we’ve been having.
First, we came upon the upper waterfall. We looked and looked but were only able to fine three little areas where the falls that were open. Even the stream part was mostly frozen. But I wouldn’t recommend ice skating.
It sure was a peaceful day for a hike! There were many people out and about taking in the beautiful weather. What more could we ask for in March then sun days and temps in the 60’s.
As we were hiking, I was able to explore a little.
The lower falls was starting to separate. It was amazing how it was starting melting, yet was still frozen. I could have sat there all day soaking up the rays.
Stretching my legs, hearing the birds, smelling the fresh air, and feeling the melting snow beneath my paws was amazing.
Spring is definitely right around the corner and I look forward visiting more of Minnesota’s great state parks.
My week long segment continues with testing out my new Solvit Deluxe Car Safety Harness. Today we are going to the local pet store where I’m in need of more food.
My food of choose is Fromm’s. Fromm’s is a family owned company bases out of Wisconsin.
While I was at the pet store, I jumped on the scale. Can you guess how much my fluffy body weighs in at?
As I stated in yesterdays post, today I’m going to show you how the Solvit Products Deluxe Car Safety Harness works in the car.
The major feature that I love about this product in the car is that it gives you options. There are two different ways you are able to attach the safety vest to the seat belt. It all depends on how much “free range” you want your pet to have.
In the photo above is considered the safest method. As you can see in the photo, you make a circle looping through the twin harness loops and around the seat belt. This method provides the least amount of movement but is the safest in case of an emergency.
The second method, you simply wrap the safety tether around the seat belt bringing the carabineer through the loop. Then simply attach the carabineer to the twin harness loops. This method provides the most range of motion for you dog.
One of the top reasons my humans love having me in a harness, they are able to focus more on the road and less on what I’m getting into.
Thank you for stopping by today, stay tuned for tomorrows post to see more adventures I’ve taken since getting the Solvit Products: Deluxe Car Safety Harness.

Imagine going to a fundraising event for an organization that rescues Golden Retrievers and Golden Mixes. What would you expect to see? That’s right, lots and lots of golden fur that have been saved through the years!
As most of you know Retrieve a Golden of Minnesota or RAGOM is the rescue organization that rescued my mom from a puppy mill and when she was placed in foster care they found out she was pregnant with my 8 litter mats and myself.
As the county’s number 1 Golden Retriever rescue group, RAGOM has rescued and re-homed over 6,000 Golden Retrievers and Golden Mixes. This organizations is based in Minnesota, but they have rescued dogs in North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Missouri, Wisconsin, and more.
I was so excited to attend this event with my pal, Carlie, another RAGOM rescue and my grandparents sweet puppy. More on this event this week!
What better way to kick off my Blogiversary week then to take a trip to the Renaissance Festival. I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but mom reassured me that I would have a blast.
This weekend they had “Pet Fest” and let me tell you, I saw a lot of dogs great and small.
Sunday was the perfect day to go. The sun was shinning, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky and with a light breeze what more could a dog or a human ask for.
There were so many great photo opps throughout the festival, but here are my two favorite ones. The first one I would like to call “My Knight in Shinning Armor.”
If I could add a caption it would say, “What are we looking at?”
My next favorite photo opp was with a pirate.
What does a pirate dog say? Baaarghk!
Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.
I had so much fun at my first Renaissance Festival I can’t wait until next year. I saw amazing costumes, heard funny and at time naughty comedians, and spent most of the day drooling over turkey legs. But, my favorite part was ridding the bus back to our car. It took every ounce of me not to stick my head out the window and yell, “Weee Wee Wee Weee!”
On our way home, my dad busted me and took this embarrassing photo of me sleeping in the backseat while I was still standing up. I guess that means I had fun.
Don’t forget to check back all week for more Blogiversary fun! There is a giveaway happening on my Facebook page and my blog! Make sure you enter daily for your chance to win some amazing prizes!
Since meeting Emma, the star of My GBGV Life, and her mom at the Minnesota Pet Expo we have kept in touch. After looking at our schedules over and over again, we finally set a play date at a dog park I have never been too. The best part of this dog park, it has a swimming area. I have never gone “real” swimming before, but was excited to try.
The day was finally here, my bag was packed and I was dragging mom out the door. Not only was I going to be hanging out with Emma, but here sister Bailie was going to be there too!
Finally, we made it! Do you know how hard it was to get a picture of all three of us? We are all we behaved dogs, but why would we sit still when we are able to run free and play. I’m just glad my mom was able to get a good one.
As we were heading down the trail I saw the big pond. There was no holding me back, I dove in that water as fast as I could. Then, I found a tennis ball and the rest was history.
I wasn’t the only one having fun in the water! I love this picture of Emma, it looks like she is blowing bubbles!
Then, Bailie found a ball and wanted it so bad. She was cute jumping up and down trying to get it.
There were lots of other dogs there that we also played with.
After we were done swimming, we continued on our walk. This was the perfect time to dry off.
Our moms had a great time chatting. Which was great, the longer they chatted, the longer we played!
I was sad to see our play date come to an end, but can’t wait until the next one. I played so hard I could hardly keep my eyes open on the way home. What more could a dog ask for, we went for a nice long walk while playing and going for a nice, cool, refreshing swim.
