a face full

big day for coconut retrievers

kim: peanut was reunited this afternoon with one of her fellow pups that was rescued from st. maarten. we (peanut and me, and bella and her people abby and tim) met at the battle creek dog park for a frolick in the afternoon snow. the pups had a fabulous time.

peanut has been a major sleepyhead this evening - a sure sign of a good time!


peanut: coconut retrievers are great playmates!

obnoxious pup

kim: peanut has just been a real stinker lately. must be cabin fever setting in.


peanut: since my mom hasn't bought me any new toys, i have to make my own from dryer lint. it's recycled from the trash, so it's eco-friendly.

expanded obedience

kim: peanut and i are spending our monday nights at all-breed obedience for a few weeks. she's getting better at walking by my side without pulling. she does okay at sit-stay (better at home), and can now do a down-stay for a little while. little by little, she's becoming a more mindful dog.


peanut: i counted to 30. time's up on my down-stay.
