It is woofing Wednesday and we have been busy which is making me exhausted.
So what is happening in the Layla Neighborhood ? Lots !!!!
On Saturday I went with Mom to volunteer as usual which was lots of fun as I got lots of hugs and pets from everyone, it is the best way to start a day with love. In the afternoon we relaxed and then went for a long walk.
Did you know ! I walk Mom now and she needs a new leash BOL. It goes like this, Mom wants a shortish walk in the afternoons and I decide I want a long one so off we go and when she wants to turn around I just sit down and refuse to move or pull her along in the direction I want. Guess who wins ?? Me of course while Mom is muttering under her breath HA – slaves should not mutter.
On Sunday we had an adventure which was fun although I did not like the drums. Mom and I went on the MUNI (tram) to the Native Contemporary Arts Festival at the Yerba Buena Gardens – it was a beautiful day, cool but sunny. We found a shady spot to sit under a tree and listen to the poetry. music and then dance.
Well when the drums started, I became antsy, did not like it and Mom laid the backpack on the ground open so I could lie in it, but when she saw that I was not relaxing and shhhhh spoiling her relaxing time as she wanted to listen, Mom being the good Mom that she is decided to bring me home.
Phew was I happy to sit in the backpack and get out of there. It was a learning lesson for both of us as Mom says she knows now that when it comes to different events she will have to plan things in a different way.
So this week, excluding walks and park time we are lying low and spending quality time at home. Mom is still teaching but otherwise it is just us.
This coming Saturday is Pride Weekend in San Francisco, loads of chaos so we are not planning any adventure on Sunday but to relax in the dog park. Though on Saturday I become mini Dyke and we are going to the Dyke March. I will allow Mom to do that one plus I have the backpack to sit comfortably and watch it all. Photos of course will be in next weeks blog.
On this note now that I have finished sharing what is happening in our neighborhood, I am off for my afternoon siesta which is needed.
Happy Pride to those celebrating
With a Woof and Love
You’re lucky to have such a nice Mom, Layla!! Have a woofing good day!
Thanks Roberta and thanks for popping in, I am lucky to have her and have a wonderful evening
I love Layla’s method of getting what she wants. Just lay down and refuse to move. Her Mastiff friends Junior and Sulley have used that tactic too and it works every time. Must be a dog thing. 😉
Yes it is Stephanie and she is so stubborn LOL
Sounds like you have some awesome adventures, Layla. Glad you enjoy walking your mom.
LOL thanks Ava and yes we have lots planned this summer
I love your pride harness! So cute!
Thank you Carleen, it was made by DachshundDelights.com
I love your pride leash, it’s so pretty! I don’t blame you for not being into those drums – that is too much loud for a lot of dogs. I’m glad you’re enjoying some Summer fun though!
Love & Biscuits,
Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them
Thanks Cathy and yes it was too much for her. I love the Pride harness also she looks so cute in it
Your schedule is packed! Make sure to take lots of naps. Hope Pride was fun.
Thanks and looking forward to the Dyke March tonight
Sounds like you had a very busy week! But glad you had fun doing all those things(minus the drums, hehe).
Elizabeth I love busy weeks but always make sure there is time for her especially on weekends and doing different things is great
Not sure I would enjoy the drums either – but sounds like a fun day overall.
Jill I love them but it was a great day just to be out and about
That does sound like a busy Wednesday. With my job, all days of the week are about equal, even though some end up busier than others. For Cookie, of course, she gets her time allocated to her no matter what.
Jana it is so important to allocate the time and I make sure to do it everyday because that way I am relaxed also knowing she has had some fun time
Yes, Lyala you should be tired with all that socializing! You’re lucky your mom puts you in a backpack. For the Fourth of July, we have a parade that goes on the street behind our house. Some of my dogs had not liked the drums and bands playing so loud!
Awww I think she would freak out from that but socializing is good for her too. I will just avoid musical events
I know I would like the drums but out cats wouldn’t so I can sympathise! next time maybe you stay home and chill- right?
I look forward to your post next week!
Thanks and I learned from that also, I love the drums but poor Layla
Layla you have a very accommodating human! I’m glad that she realized you didn’t like the drums and got out of there. I hope you have a great weekend!
Thanks Beth and am learning every day something new about her
It soubds like fun to me but I can understand why Layla wouldn’t.
I know and I learnt from it also
You have been one busy girl! Thanks for joining the Pet Parade. We ♥ you!
We love you too and thank you for the Pet Parade, it is on our weekly schedule
Layla is one smart doggie, she knows how to motivate her human into doing what she wants. But, who could say “no” to those sweet eyes!
Aww thanks Monika and she knows how to use those eyes big time LOL
Take time to enjoy the weekend for sure. Have fun. Happy Pride! Woof! I plan on taking time to relax in this heat.
Stay cool and we had a wonderful weekend
Oh, my goodness, you have been busy! Lots of celebrating! You and Miss Reese may look alike but it seems she is the opposite of you on walks. Reese will sit in protest AGAINST walking lol. I have to pick her up and carry her while we finish the walk with her brothers.
LOL Sadie Layla sits when she wants to go her way or no way but otherwise can just go on and on. Sending hugs
You’re cracking me up Layla! Bernie does the same mid-stroll halt. At 37 pounds, when Bernie parks his Doodle butt, I end up stopping too. I really wish that boy could talk to me. He usually just smiles, and I say, “Let’s go,” and we keep on walking. No sniffing or other delay. He just likes to randomly stop every once in a while. Looking forward to all of your Pride pictures next week!
Irene with Layla it is either her way or now way, they are funny and I agree I wish they would talk sometimes
What a wonderful and full weekend! Need to get a better leash for Mom (BOL)! You are just so cute, so of course you would win! (winky-winky). The native arts festival sounds amazing. I was at a music festival years ago with a band I managed and there was a Native American musician and his music was just beautiful, I bought his CD. When I was a very young girl, I cannot recall where we were, but my parents took me to a village where there were beautifully dressed native dancers and drumming, we toured a teepee, and they had some really stunning pieces of silver jewelry artisans had made. My Dad bought my Mom a wedding band there with symbols of love imprinted in their native tongue. I will alway remember that day…and I had wished I had found that ring when Mom passed. Thank you for bringing back such warm memories for me with your post and pic of the dancers! Oh, and Layla, love your rainbow pride harness!
Dorothy I love ethnic music from all cultures so this was a treat for me too. Thank you for sharing your memory with me and I am so sorry you did not find the ring which must have been so so so special. There music is beautiful and I love listening to it whenever possible, it can be very soothing also. As for my leash LOL I would trip over it. Layla woofs thanks for the compliment of her rainbow harness, she wore it well this weekend.
I would have enjoyed the music and drums but not Kilo. He is quite clear that he likes his territory and that is it and we obey usually- like you and Layla. Makes things easier and safer in our case. Happy Pride. We support but Kilo stays home.
I understand you totally and that is why I am going to leave her at home when it comes to concerts / events but otherwise do different adventures with her
I love how you were walking your mom! Sometimes mom Paula thinks maybe she needs to get a dog so she will get out get some exercise. We remind her that two cats are enough.
LOL I so understand that two cats keep you busy but hey Paula you could put them in a stroller and all three of you go for a walk 🙂
Lol, sounds like an eventful week! Your mom should try out an easy walk harness or freedom harness.
LOL Katie will keep that in mind. Yes we have busy weeks and its healthy and good for us 🙂
I would carry her home too, she’s so cute! My dog is too huge to carry, he usually takes me for a walk. Lol
Thanks and yes she is spoiled LOL
