If only I could get coordinating head tilts 🐻🌲
Adventures are currently on pause because it’s rainy here in SoCal #withachanceofMC
As much as we’d love to be outdoors adventuring, the rain is giving our bodies a chance to recover, our paws to soften up a bit, and most of all giving Mother Earth what she deserves. This will literally give us greener grass on the other side. Thank you rain, we love you.. but don’t stay for too long! 🐶

Adventure is everywhere.. 🏕✨
Imagine a world where people stop and smell the roses, and rocks, and sticks, the way dogs do😂
Okay, excessive, smelling isn’t our dominant scent. However, it is so good for the soul to stop and soak in exactly where you are.
What do you see? 👓
What do you hear? 🎶
What do you smell? 👃🏽
The last few days I’ve been watching rain drops trickle on a lake🌊, listened to little ducks splashing away🦆💦, and smelling that most wonderful smell of rain😍🌧
If you could only smell one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?☕️🥓👕👞🍪👶🏼
After 6 months of looking for the right one, we finally got a new vehicle right before Christmas and we broke it in with a mini camping trip! It’s big enough for us to fully lie down in the back and pretty much everything we’ve ever dreamed of (except MPG...) I’d lent out my wide lens so I couldn’t take any bigger shots inside, but I think you can feel the snuggle in this one ❤️ By the way, no editing was done on these eyes- car windows just make for super sharp catch lights.

Molly was a bit unsure of being up on a high slopes at first when I told her “up”, the only command Molly does with ease 🤔🌲

Training Tip Tuesday!!!
Lauren of @theadventurepackvt
came out today! She’s completing the My Dog Camp Online Course and wanted to see one in action! Since we moved and are starting ours up in the Spring (and documenting it for you!! *pumped* 🙌🏽🐕) we went out to Sara’s of @greenmtncaninecamp
One of Lauren’s questions was how do you stop a dog fight?
The answer is: if you have to break up a fight you’re not following the program correctly since it prevents dog fights.
Building your dog pack is all about knowing which dogs to take and helping each dog feel safe and confident in the pack. Don’t pick dogs that have been in fights before and don’t pick dogs that are out of control or overly insecure. You can work on obedience at dog camp but it’s not a place for behavior modification and working on any type of fear based aggression or flightiness. If you follow our secret sauce you can’t go wrong! ✌🏼

I’m just missing Washington a little extra this morning.
Having a rescue means having a built in, lifelong excuse for bad behavior. In the beginning, I would offer this excuse myself. “Oh he’s not very used to people, he’s a rescue.” “Oh he’s a little nervous, he’s a rescue.” Now I cringe when people ask me, “Is she” -inevitably- “a rescue?” It always either means they’re judging his behavior or they’re about to tell me I’m an angel for rescuing.
Rescuing wasn’t an informed decision I made. It was just the easiest path. I didn’t know breeds, didn’t want a puppy, didn’t have the faintest concept of responsible breeding practices. I wanted a small, athletic, pointy eared dog and the city shelter didn’t care where I lived, how much yard I had or whether I was running a dog fighting pit, they just wanted a check and for me to take the dog and go away so they could close up.
I got lucky with a good match. But we also put in a lot of work and made a lot of changes early on to make things work. It’s not the right path for everyone and I find #adoptdontshop
and similar sentiments to be short sighted. Even the best rescue organizations don’t improve the dog species- that’s the sole jurisdiction of responsible breeders.

In a world where we’re always pressured to conform to societies expectations, don’t ever be afraid to be yourself. In fact, be a lot more you and a lot less them. Your smile, your laugh, your talents, your skills, passions, quirks and flaws are so unique to you. There’s nobody else like you, so don’t hide yourself. Shine from within and share yourself with the world. Cause when you are unapologetically yourself, you give others the chance to do the same. .
