My Day Off!

Today I decided to take a day off, after all it is Friday and who doesn’t love a three day weekend! I had a lot of cleaning to do around the apartment. The constant shedding is never ending! I love my girls but I am constantly cleaning after them. I desperately need a Roomba. Anyone want to get me one for my birthday?

After hours of cleaning and my girls being so well behaved and staying out of the way I decided to reward them with some one on one with mommy. My Nova loves to play fetch and swim so I decided to take her to the Cedar Bark Park. This park is amazing! If it weren’t 20 minutes away I would take her a lot more often. It is divided in three sections; one section is for big dogs, the next is for small dogs and the biggest section has a large pond for big dogs but small dogs are also welcomed at the owners discretion. Nova loves swimming after the ball. We were out there like 30 minutes and since it was still business hours it wasn’t crowded. The part that is so neat about this dog park is that it has a wash area. So on our way out I was able to give Nova a bath and get all the stinky pond smell out of her. Last thing I want is my freshly clean apartment to smell like wet dog with a hint of pond.

My darling, Laika, loves going on long walks. I decided to spend a nice evening with Laika at Brushy Creek. There’s a nice trail for us to walk with a great view of the creek and lots of new smells for her to sniff. The weather was perfect. It was cloudy because it’s suppose to rain later tonight and there was a nice wind blowing. We were out there about 45 minutes. Loved this relaxing walk with my old lady.

I love being able to get away from the routine from time to time and spend time with my girls separately. I know they enjoy the extra attention they get from me and due to work they aren’t always able to spend quality time with me everyday. It was a great day. It was nice to just slow down a bit and enjoy the view and the company I had.

Lake Time!

Unexpected plIMG_9639ans are the best! The original plan was to take Luna and Nova to the grand opening of a new dog splash park in Pflugerville. I was so excited because Nova loves water and a splash park sounds like something that is needed in town. However, when we got there it was pack! I should have expected that considering that it was the grand opening. The line was so long to get into the splash area and they were taking turns letting the small dogs in and the large dogs. It was so hot and my boyfriend and I didn’t want to wait in line for the girls to go in the water for a few minutes so we decided to drive a few extra minutes to the Pflugerville Lake. We found a spot away from the crowd and let the girls off leash. They swam so much. It was absolutely something they both needed. My curious Nova found a dead fish floating around and I thought she would try to eat it but thankfully she just sniffed it and tossed it around. The girls were exhausted afterwards which makes me really happy. It was a perfect day! Can’t wait for more days at the lake with the girls.
