Marathon Time

KATIE: Oh my gosh Louie...what's going on out here??

LOUIE: Cool! It's Marathon time again. It's always fun to hear lots of silly humans yell "look at those bears" as they run away as fast as they can.

KATIE: They weren't scared Louie-Lou; they were racing. You know, like we always do during our recall practice.
LOUIE: Oh yeah, you mean those races that I always win. Those are always fun too.

KATIE: Well, even better than the bear comments are the hundreds of "gorgeous dogs" comments. This year people are loving my girly bling. Seeing us seems to give their tired legs a little extra boost. We are therapy dogs so of course we like to help out whenever we can. Lifting spirits is our speciality.

LOUIE: I love it when people stop running the marathon just to pet us. I think all those kisses we give them really cheer them up.

Love and kisses to the thousands of runners who participated in this year's Marathon,

"Snow Newfs" the Movie

In Central Arkansas we are lucky to get an inch of snow once or twice a year. This year we hit the snow jackpot with two decent sized snows and then one big snow which totaled 7"!

This movie may not quite live up to the hype of the trailer we posted a few weeks ago, but you are not likely to find two happier Newfoundland dogs captured on film. Katie and Louie's elation during their playtime in the snow was such a treat for Gary and I to experience. Of course, we've seen them in snow before but their joy seemed greater than usual to match this deeper than normal snowfall. My favorite part is the second half of the movie when they really start playing chase and wrestling.
