Happy Monday

K and I ventured further than we have in months today, emerging at my favorite hidden viewpoint. We sat and gazed at our mountains from the promontory. Then, K stood tall for me.
Later in the day, we worked on down-stays as part of our training. R turned into a running faucet, with drool flowing out of his mouth as he awaited his next reward.
Funny, experienced K had fallen asleep in her down-stay while R was on high alert for treats - a perfect example of dichotomy between their dog-onalities.

It was a gorgeous day here on the Front Range but I can't share any more photos. It's taking an hour per photo to upload them so I'll save them for later. I hope that you enjoyed your day, despite it being a Monday!


  1. Mango will SO applaud R's down-stay drools!

    Great K shot!

  2. No worries, just the two you have here are awesome enough to hold us until you give us some more:)

  3. R... well... and of course, K: you are both so very special in each of your own ways!!! Beautiful photo of K on the boulder!

  5. OoH I can really relate to R cuz I am always on high alert fur treats! ;)

  6. What a great way to look out over the mountains and valleys. K has the right idea, "Climb Every Mountain".

  7. And here I thought I was the only one who's dog drooled like that!

  8. Good thing poor R wasn't outside! He'd be attached to the ground with droolcicles!

    K looks like she might be part mountain goat! That's quite a perch she's got.

    Don't you just hate when technology doesn't cooperate?

    Yeah, Bunny loves the snow as long as it's not too cold outside!

  9. Gorgeous pics as usual - the slobber monster is too funny

  10. Dog-onalities, that's funny!

    Your pal, Pip

  11. Hey there KB
    I was thrilled to read that it's 'good news' for K's paw. I know the road ahead may be difficult but I am so pleased nevertheless.
    Love the picture of R's drool...reminds me of another dog I knew who loved 'muffins'.
    Stay well, dear friend and KEEP WARM!
    Sending lotsaluv

  12. You gotta teach me how to drool like that, R! I can focus on the treats, but can't emphasize to the hoomans how much I need the treats.


  13. We just love to see that gorgeous K
    overlooking the mountains,, ohhh we can feel the moment,,
    thank you for sharing it.
    And R in his equally gorgeous moment too.
    We understand the slowness thing,, we only have dial up,, so you can IMAGINE.
    xoxoxo and love
