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
A fun and active weekend, and so much better for not having the rain. We love sand when it’s warm, but kitties and anything wet really don’t work, well not around here and we have plenty horrid weather to practice in 😉
It was active and great not having the rain, we needed a break to be outdoors a bit phew. Layla hates the wet also LOL
It’s so good to see you and you did have the perfect pup week-end didn’t you. S.P.O.I.L.E.D.
Thank you for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Our pleasure and thanks for the blog hop. We had a great weekend and hopefully this weekend will be just as good.
DUH! Did I say Thankful Thursday or the Pet Parade?
It’s been a busy day…..
A loving home does wonders doesn’t it! I must admit I can’t stand the rain, wet dogs…luckily Jack isn’t a huge fan so we don’t venture too far in it. Poor Layla doesn’t like her paws getting wait – quite the little madam!! Glad she’s doing her usual socialising and livin’ the good life.
Thanks Hindy and I am trying to give her the best life possible. I love the beach and she is happy to walk along it but not get wet so am planning to do the same this weekend hopefully
Sounds like a fun weekend! My oldest boy, Kitsune, looooves the beach. It’s funny because he doesn’t really like the water, or getting wet, but playing in the sand on the beach is one of his favorite things.
They are funny, Layla is happy to trot along the sand or lie on it but not get wet LOL. We had a great weekend and am planning another this weekend also
How cool you both got to have a fun time at that beach, it really looks super nice. Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
Thank you Brian and we had a fantastic day, hope to do another one soon. Have a great weekend
We could use a little sun here in Ohio. It sounds like Layla had a great day at the Woman’s day. 🙂
She had a fantastic day and the weather is like spring at the moment which is fantastic
Do you like your backpack carrier? We are heading out to Costa Rica and are looking at one to double up as airline carrier and backpack for rainforest trips – pups are so small they are at risk in the jungle!
Sonja I swear by this backpack carrier – it is amazing and folds up that you can also put it in your suitcase if you want to. If you want more details PM me, have a great weekend
Sounds like you had a great weekend. I love the picture of Layla playing with the Golden Gate in the background. It snowed, iced and rained here in the east. Do you have big plans for this weekend?
Hi Holly, we are just planning to go to the park and relax, it has been a crazy week for me LOL. Thanks for the compliment on the photo, have a great weekend
Yay for sunshiney days! And a big yay for standing up for the voiceless. Sometimes, in these current times, that really takes guts. We applaud you.
Thank you Lola and we must not be quiet in these days, yay for the sunshine also
Such a gorgeous photo of Layla by the Golden Gate Bridge! The weather has been so glorious – and not really rainy this winter, I’m with you on the joys of that! Enjoy the weekend and give Layla a smooch for me!
I will Rebecca and thanks for the compliment of the photograph. We enjoying the good weather here too till the rain returns
What a productive and fun weekend y’all enjoyed. Layla looks adorable in your backpack. I’m sure she was much happier running along the beach.
We had a great weekend and yes she loves trotting alone the beach but not going into the water LOL. We love busy weekends but we like slow ones also
It sounds like you had a great weekend! Layla really has come far in the last 8 years!
Thanks Katie and yes she has – it has been a long road together
We had it sunny on many days too – except it comes with -20 Celsius or colder.
Awesome am happy you had some
A few years ago I went to my daughter’s wedding in San Francisco, I was hoping to make it to Chrissy Field and see the dogs, but we ran out of time. It looks like such a beautiful place, I’m glad you enjoyed yourselves.
Thanks Beth and we hope you will visit soon again and then we can go on a dog park tour 🙂
Your day at the beach sipping coffee looking at the bridge and water sounds absolutely perfect to me! My dream day! I have a fave spot here very similar, including a long awesome bridge, I love to go to to recharge, too! Even introduced my boy, Wolf, to his very first beach visit there and let him stroll in the river! So glad you had a nice day! Can never have too many of those!
No we cannot and I love the sound of water, it is so so relaxing and recharging.
I’m always amazed at the wonderful events the two of you attend together. I believe both Layla and you have come a long way in your lives through each other.
Thank you 🙂 and I look for the events as it is fun
