Rene and I took off for Sedona for 5 days (to post celebrate our anniversary, more on that on 7Dresses) and we needed to figure out what to do with Whiskey.... sad to say our wonderful friend and longtime dog-sitter, Gabe, recently moved to Texas (very sad) and letting Grandma Nance and Grandpa Jack watch him was out of the question (sorry mom) and we really did not want to kennel him. SO after much thought we decided to leave him at home and have Abby come over and feed him. What this really meant was that we needed to get a Doggie Door!

While taking a trip to El Paso, Whiskey got to stay with Grandpa Jack & Grandma Nance in Prescott. All was going well, Grandma took him on a hike, Grandpa played with him. But one day the window washers came and Grandpa's famous last words were "Please don't let the dogs out"!Well somehow Whiskey got out and TOOK OFF! The cleaners had to go get Grandma at the clubhouse and then the search was on! Whiskey was running all over the golf course and the neighborhood. And this is no normal neighborhood... this is the terrain he was running on:

I am sorry. I am not really sure who I am apologizing to. I had high hopes for it, but with life getting in the way and living on a beautiful ranch where Whiskey can run and play we just have not taken him out a lot lately. But I will post some fun pictures of him on the ranch.... soon.

Have you ever been a dog sitter? I actually love having another dog around for Whiskey to play with and we are lucky enough to have a great friend, Gabe, who we exchange the favor with. If we go out of town he takes Whiskey and when he goes away we take Indy... it works out very nicely. Plus our dogs our best friends and love to play together so selfishly we love that Whiskey gets worn out!

Now camping is an activity that 90% of the time your furry friend can attend.... and they usually LOVE it! If you are Whiskey, you spend most of your day inside. You pretty much sleep ALL day from 8am - 5pm until we get home from work. Then you go CRAZY when we get home, eat dinner and maybe play outside for an hour by running around and playing fetch..... sound familiar???

Over this past week I have been working at the Scottsdale Arabian Horse show at West World. It has been 10 days of talking with horse people about nutrition and feed BUT also surprisingly with a lot of dog people.
This show was a great destination for an outing with your mutt. You can take him anywhere. He can accompany you while you shop in the two vendor tents filled with clothing, tack, art, jewelry, books, etc... and there even are a few "pet boutique" vendors so even your pup can pick up something nice.
After you have shopped your little heart out you can sit and rest your feet & paws in the stands of the Equidome and watch the beautiful Arabian horses "do their thang" in the many classes including Mounted Native Costume, Saddle Seat English Pleasure, Carriage Driving, and Liberty.
You smell the wonderful array of food carried by the wind and so you and your mutt decide it is time for lunch. There is so much to choose from (think fair food)... Mexican, Chinese, Italian, burgers, smoked salmon, ice cream, Greek, turkey legs, corn on the cob, funnel cake, etc!!! Take your pick, and then maybe take come more :-)
After full bellies, you can go for a stroll through the wonderfully decorated barns and see the Arabians resting in the barns. You might even be so lucky to stumble upon a stallion or sale offering presentation where they take out the horses to show them off to the crowd.
You can find dogs of every size and breed here at the show (from mastiffs to mini pins and everything in between). I bet one in five attendees bring their dog with them whether they are "horse people" or not. You do not have to know about horses to attend, it is just an all around fun event.
The show happens every year in February, so if you haven't already, check it out next year and BRING YOUR MUTT!!
