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 :
The hosts : Pet Camp who is San Francisco’s only certified green dog and cat boarding, day care, grooming and training facility. A wonderful place with lots of place to run and have fun. Highly recommended.

And then of course the Rescue Organizations Grateful Dogs Rescue and Copper Dreams Rescue.
In a nutshell we had a great time and I think the best of all was watching Layla climb down the stairs at the agility section LOL. Click on the link below :
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
I’m glad to see that you had a great and refreshing time out in the Muir Woods. It looks like a beautiful place. The weather has really stunk in my area too. We’re hoping to see some warm weather soon. Layla looks very happy with the outing that she did get to go on. That face says everything!
Thanks Robin and Muir Woods is magical it was so beautiful. I needed it. Layla had a great time and was exhausted when she got home LOL
Sounds like a fun weekend! I go hiking sometimes without my dogs. I always feel a bit guilty about it, but sometimes it’s nice to have some nice relaxing time to myself.
It was a great weekend and am so happy you also feel guilty LOL but I realized how good it was for me also
Oh my you had a fun weekend planned. It’s nice to getaway once and a while. I think it’s a positive time to have solo time. Like you said it’s good to recharge. I saw Layla’s grooming cut on social. She looks fab!
I agree with you Kamira it was good for me to get away a bit. Thanks for the compliment I love her new haircut
I’m glad that you were able to experience Muir Woods, it sounds incredible! I bet Layla really enjoyed herself at the Pet Camp and it what a great list of vendors!
Beth Muir Woods was like a blessing to be able to go to, I so enjoyed it. The Pet Camp is a great venue and we had a wonderful time
Sounds like a fun filled weekend. I like the idea of National Dog Mom’s Day. Glad you could celebrate it with Layla 🙂 My beagle/dachshund mix would have enjoyed the Hounds Massage. The agility section sound fun for the doggies.
It was so much fun and so nice to be pampered for once also. A great event
I’m glad you took some time for yourself. It gave Layla some downtime before her big adventure – it certainly looks like she enjoyed it. I hope your weather improves, soon.
Thanks Sadie and I hope so too as it has not stopped raining and I am now getting fed up LOL
I just can’t figure the weather out right now Layla. Crazy here too.
I am glad you had fun at the Day. The vendors sounds really good. Having specialised vendors means the people there care about you and your dog don’t they?
Yes they do and the weather is driving us nuts LOL
Looks like a cool weekend. I wish Kilo would hike or even walk in a park. Something must have scared him as he shakes and refuses to go many places. Such a pity as he loves being with us but just too stressful taking him most places. Happy long weekend
Thanks Susan and Layla has those fearful moments also but thank goodness for the Hemp Oil it calms her down plus her backpack does make it easier
Oh, Dog Mom Day celebration sounds like so much fun! What a great way to spend the day!
Your woods visit day also sounds lovely. Sometimes we need to enjoy and recharge and getting in touch with nature is a great way to do that! You always have sun fun adventures!
Dorothy I am learning to spoil myself LOL and yes the Dog Mom Day was awesome, thanks I try to have fun on weekends
Weekends rule. Cookie caught two mice this weekend 🙂
LOL good for Cookie
It’s soooooo important to practice self care! You shouldn’t have an ounce of guilt doing anything for yourself! I’m glad you had a lovely time!
