Happy New Year 2019

Happy New Year from ABC

Happy New Year 2019

As 2018 comes to an end, I want to take a moment to reflect on the lives of Artie, Buddy, and Coby. With the new year approaching, one of my goals is to share more stories and photos of these three with my readers. They bring so much joy to my life and they can yours too! So follow along as 2019 brings new adventures and fun!

It’s hard to believe that Artie (the oldest) will be 10 years old in February. I remember the day we brought him home. We were immediately in love and have been since that day. Artie is a unique boy – he doesn’t need much in the way of attention and his gentleness shines as he aims to please his mommy and daddy. He loves to hunt small critters, he chews on his paws continually (due to allergies),  he suffers with anxiety yet loves walks, the dog park, and his brother, Buddy, to pieces!

Buddy is the middle boy, who just like a child, is always looking for attention! He will be 10 years old in September, which means he and Artie are just six months apart. Artie and Buddy share the same bloodline and are best friends!! They love to kiss each other, cuddle, and sleep in the same cage (house). Buddy suffers from reoccurring bladder stones and has undergone two surgeries in less than two years. He’s on a very strict prescription diet and has to take a couple different medications every day. Even so, Buddy loves to eat and you can frequently find him sneaking into Coby’s food dish!

Coby, our rescue, is the youngest at four years old (9/11/14). He has a spitfire personality – so sweet yet so sneaky! His brothers have a love/hate relationship with him due to his dominant personality. His sweet and innocent personality can quickly change, which means his brothers have difficulty trusting him. Even so, Coby brings so much laughter and entertainment to our family because of his fun and loving personality.

These are my babies in a nutshell. I hope you will follow along as begin to document more from their lives. And as 2019 approaches, I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year! Take care and hug your babies (human or furry).

Dog Park June 2017

The dog park is ABC’s favorite place, well, besides home! We can’t even say P A R K without them going crazy with excitement. If they had a choice, I think they’d go there every night. If only dogs could talk…

Below are some pictures from our most recent trip to the park. As you can tell from their panting, it was a warm night.

Evening in the Park

Last night we ventured to our community dog park just down the street. It’s something we haven’t done enough of this summer. The boys always love to go to the park, even though they spend most the time right by our sides. They are people (and dog) watchers just like their mommy!
