An Average Day

 I thought it would be fun to invite you all to a typical day for me at home.  Home is Canine Coutry Club where me and My Vickie run a Doggy Day Care and Boarding place.    Our Day starts at 4:30 am, which for me is a bit early, but My Vickie seems to like the morning hours.

First thing we do is get up and prepare breakfast for all of our guests.  Well and for me and my bros and sista's.  We have to all be fed by 6 am when all my day care friends start arriving.
 As the weather has been BEAUTIFUL here (maybe a little on the warm side, but with all the shade trees it is no prob)  anyway with the great weather, most of my friends have been playing outside all day.  They can go in where it is airconditioned whenever they want, but like me, they like being outside. 
 We get all kinds of fun friends, big and little, young and old.....

My Vickie says we do things a bit differently here because we only have about four or five guests in a play area at a time.  We have a whole big piece of land divided in different areas so everyone gets to play with dogs that are like them. 

and ME.....I get to go and play with anyone I like cause I get along with everyone.  My Vickie calls me a "Social Butterfly"  and I assume that is a good thing
 Around 1 pm when it starts getting hotter, we all take naps.  Shelby has taken over the porch swing but she lets me get up with her when I want.  But only me.......
 After a good nap we all get our second wind and head out to play again.  We don't have big pools or lakes here at CCC but we do have tubs big enough to cool our feet and big enough for me to lay down in and cool off after a bout of playing with my pals.
 Too soon, it is time for my day care friends to go home and then My Vickie and I start preparing dinner for everyone.  Today after dinner, My Keillie helped me get all prettied up for a SAR demonstartion that I have to give to a small group of kids at a local park.   It is important that I am clean and brushed cause, well, you don't want to stink.  Kids don't love on you much if you stink.......
 Getting brushed is hard work.....
 My Keillie stayed and kept my friends company while My Vickie and I went to meet all the kids and to teach them how to stay safe, if they ever get lost......and how to meet dogs you don't know......that is important too.
 The kids were great and I had a wonderful time.
After we all posed for some pictures, My Vickie and I came home.  It is almost 10 pm and if we are lucky things will quiet down around then.  Except for the fireworks.....But I have decided that is kind of cool cause we always get to sleep outside on these July nights.  You know.....Keeping guard over everyone who is here with us.

So, I guess Shelby is going to have to give up the porch swing for the night cause My Vickie is getting ready for a long night.  Hopefully we wont get any early morning visitors who want to pee on our peas......Not that I am allowed to eat them any more anyway.

So, Night all, Oh and Todd  sure wish you were closer, we would love to have you come and play with us at our doggy day care.  I bet I could wear you out before you went home at the end of the day.

Love to all

Our Mom is up at 4:30 too, except for the weekends which is a bit confusing for us:) We love your place, wish we could come there to stay when our humans go away. Mom remembers when she was little and used to sleep on the porch all summer long, no central a/c waaaaaaaaaay back then. BOL

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Bert, I greatly enjoyed my visit with you this morning. You are totally irresistible, golden boy!(smile)

Thank you for thinking of me. Even though life has taken me away from the blogs for a while - I always have time for you. And I'll be back before you know it!

Your eyes always seem to be asking,
'Do you love me?'

And my heart always answers,
'I do...I do.'

Be back soon, sweet one,

Wow Bert, you must be really tired after your busy day! Good thing you got a nap!

Bailey Be Good! said...

Sounds like you have very interesting days!! I can't imagine being around that many doggies at once! :)

Woofs & hugs,

Isn't it amazing how children always seem to smile in the presence of a Golden, and Goldens always smile back?

Roo said...

What a great doggy day care pad y'all run! After such a long day you must be pooped! Butt in a good way :D

Waggin at ya,

Sarge said...

Hey Bert!
Wow, you have a really snazzy place for pooches to visit. When my peeps leave, I have to go undercover in the slammer! That's work and it's not much fun. I'd rather be visiting your CCC! Looks like lots of fun with all of those mini two leggers!
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

WOW Bert, you are blessed to have such a cool place. My mom person gets up around 6:00 I get to go outside immediately after she gets up ..even though I like it outside I'm kinda of a inside dog..if Mom person is outside I will stay as long as she does but if she goes in...I want to go with her. You have such a cool place...and you get to be with so many cool friends. Loving your "normal day".

4:30 AM, oh my. I am not a morning person so that blows me away!

I love your day, playing with all those other dogs and taking such great care of them. Ending your day with a SAR demo - you guys are amazing!

HELLO!!! I'm late getting here because Todd is wearing ME out!!! :-) Actually I think it's because we are starting our days at about the same time!! I am not kidding when I say that I really wish I could bring Todd there so you could all wear him out for me!! I know he would love it, and I know you all would take great care of him and I also have a feeling you'd all get into some fun mischief together too!!

Oskar said...

Wowee it sounds like you live in a super cool place. With great friend always waiting to play with.

I know you and your Vickie have a dog-gone good time with all your buddies!

And we sure wish you were doing our SAR demonstration for us. You need to plan for a Mississippi vacation next July, dawg!

Wow! What a great place. I wish I lived closer so I could come play *all the time*. Do you think maybe that your Mama would adopt me?
