Weekend is here

Good Morning All,


Weekend has arrived and the fun will begin. 


The weather is lousy here in SF at the moment, cold, windy and raining and not sure where the sun disappeared. Layla is not happy getting her paws wet so she is hibernating as much as possible in her box.


Last Friday I took the day off to spoil myself and went with friends for the day to Muir Woods. I have never been there and was so excited to go, I decided to leave Layla at home and spend some down time for myself in nature. I know some of you will say poor Layla but it is the first time I have done something like this, and although I felt guilty I really needed it. The Woods are magical, listening to the water running in the streams, the quiet, the birds singing, was heaven for me and relaxing that I came home with new energy and I think I need to do this more often. I am sure she slept and said to herself phew thank goodness she has gone LOL.

On Saturday we went to National Dog Mom’s Day held at Pet Camp San Francisco. 
What is Dog Moms Day ? Dig-The Dog Person’s Dating App created a day to celebrate and thank the dog moms who dedicate their love and support every day to their dogs. It’s a different, special and visceral love that deserves its own day to be recognized and appreciated.


Us Moms were spoiled with beautiful tote bags and caps from a company called Drink Babe whom gave us cans of bubbly Rosé Babe, Grigio Babe, and Red Babe to celebrate Mothers Day.

There were also vendors for the dogs :

On Sunday we had a lazy day, met a friend for coffee and a chat with Madam of course but otherwise we did nothing.


So that is what has been happening in the Layla neighborhood as with the rain at the moment and me back at work nothing exciting is happening although shhh she is getting groomed today and I have not told her yet.

Oy Vey I am going to have to stock up on treats and spoil her afterwards.
Have a wonderful weekend all with lots of fun and laughter.

Hugs and Woof Layla

Weekend has arrived and Give Away time

Goood Morning Fur Friends,


The weekend is arriving and I am so excited. 
Weather has warmed up in San Francisco, summer is around the corner and already all the fun weekend events are starting. 


Last weekend the weather was fantastic so on Sunday I took Layla to the 40th anniversary Easter in the Park Event. This event is organized every year at Easter by a non profit organization called The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. They are a non profit organization who have devoted themselves to community service, promoting human rights which includes respect for Diversity. You can read more about them on their website :  http:// https://www.thesisters.org/

Layla with some of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence

It was a fun event, lots of music, laughter costumes of course and people and dogs. We sat back on the lawn listening and watching till Madam started to get antsy so after an hour or so we walked home and Madam fell asleep LOL.

So with that event last weekend and DogFest coming up this weekend the weekend outdoors life with events and parks is starting. I am so looking forward to it and I am sure Layla will be too when she see what she gains LOL.


With all this happening I decided to do a review of some new freeze dried treats as they are easy to carry and light and good for the munchies for Madam while we are out and about.  The treats that I have reviewed are from my favorite company Raw Paws Pet Food and the major plus is that they are for CATS also – yup, time to include the cats too. Of course, when we do reviews we do a give away and Layla has given her stamp of approval that these are the best of the best. 

She tasted:
The Free Run Chicken Recipe – I should make her run for these too, The Free Run Turkey Recipe,  The Free Run Duck Recipe, Grass Fed Beef Recipe 

All of them are : Grain Free and Gluten Free with no preservatives, additives or fillers. AND are made in the USA with no hormones or antibiotics.

Plus don’t forget with the LAYLA15 coupon you get 15% off your order. 

Raw Paws Pet Food also offered to donate the above treats to one of our favorite Rescue Organizations and we chose Muttville Senior Rescue. 

Who is Muttville :

Muttville’s mission is to change the way the world thinks about and treats older dogs and to create better lives for them through rescue, foster, adoption, hospice, education, and advocacy.  The tragic truth is that every day, dogs in good health with wonderful personalities are euthanized. Why? They’re older. And because they’re older, they’re not considered adoptable. Muttville saves senior and special needs rescue dogs; finds suitable homes for those dogs that are adoptable and offers end of life care for those that are not. These are not just shelter dogs; every day, dogs are moved from loving homes to concrete cages because their guardians have died or moved or simply can’t care for them anymore. If we had our way, no dog would spend its last days in a cold, dark shelter. There is so much love and joy in these dogs! Bringing these special dogs into a home is not only good for the dogs, but such loving, mellow dogs transform the quality of life for the people who adopt or foster them.

You can read more about them on the link : :https://muttville.org/

WOOOF let the give away begin and good luck everyone.

This give away is open for the USA only and persons over 18 years old.  All you have to do is click on the rafflecopter link below and it will take you to entry form.

We were sponsored to do this give away and are so happy to be doing it as Layla woofs these treats are worthy of sharing.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone 

With a big Woof, Love and Licks from Layla

San Francisco is sunny

Happy Wednesday Friends,

Thank goodness the week of rain is over and we are having some sunshine as it is needed to dry off everything including us LOL.

We had a great busy weekend as usual and the weather being good even made it better especially as I had Monday off, nothing like a long weekend to pamper Layla with quality time.

On Saturday we went to the Women’s March where Layla became little woman LOL. There were a lot of people plus many dogs which I was surprised to see. It was wonderful to be there and although we did not March as Layla was not happy with all the noise and I had given her some CBD oil before we left, I decided to come home when they started. Yes she was in the backpack but so antsy I was getting back ache from her moving around. So we took the bus home and got off in the park and relaxed there for a bit. It was a great day in all.

On Sunday we just chilled, relaxed and did nothing but normal walks in the nice weather, perfect for me to recharge my batteries and for her to get some exercise.

 

Monday we had a big adventure, a friend of mine with his two dogs decided to go down to Chrissy Field which is a great dog area on the beach so off we went. Layla was happy trotting along as long as her paws did not get wet LOL. It was so nice sitting on a blanket on the beach, looking out at the sea and Golden Gate bridge, drinking coffee and chatting. A perfect day in so many ways. Layla was happy although came home sandy and itchy poor thing but I immediately rinsed her off with some warm water and apple cider vinegar just in case there were any bugs LOL and then she ate and went to sleep.

 

I cannot believe that 8 years ago Layla was dumped at the shelter and how far we have come together, from her fear of people to a lap dancer today and so much more.

So that was our weekend and now back to work, housework and all the mundane things while Madam chews on a bone and relaxes. Life is good in the Layla Neighborhood.

On this sunny message we are saying to everyone be safe in the cold weather, and those in the Southern Hemisphere stay cool as we have been reading about the heat waves and fires.

With a woof and love from Layla
