Today’s Running Partner

The more I develop myself over the years the more I learn that things I love and that are important to me fit together. I have been a long time dog lover. And over the last few years I have become an increasingly avid runner. I have been making more time to run than to do most other things in my life these days. I never thought I would say that. As I have been getting more into running I have really been wanting to be able to run with one of my dogs. I have tried in the past to run with one of our dogs but it didn’t really work out well for either of us. But I am thinking that I may try to get more dedicated to this idea. So today I set out with my new running partner today.

Too Friendly?

I love dogs. I especially love dogs that are super friendly. I love big wet slobbery dog kisses. I love a dog that want to climb right in my lap and snuggle. I love the dog that wants to share the couch while I nap and the bed while I sleep. I love all of this dog stuff and the bigger the dog the better.

I love the dog that wants to be right there beside you at all times. I love the dog that just follows you from place to place.

Brynn Loves Her Jolly Ball

After not really caring for the Jolly all dog toy we bought for a long time. Brynn has finally come around and embraced it. It has become her favorite toy lately. She often caries the largish ball around the house with her. This looks both goofy and adorable as the ball is about about as large as her head. Brynn is a dog who is a chewer so it is very important that we find toys she can chew. It is also good if these toys are not easily destroyed. We have not found many of these types of toys. But so far the Jolly Ball is proving to be one such toy. Today Brynn just sat up on the couch chewing her toy. So I took the opportunity to take some photos and videos with my iPhone. This is a time lapse video of her and her favorite toy.

We first met Brynn back in March of 2014 at the Chemung County SPCA. Back then her name was Zoey. My wife who worked there at the time fell in love with her. We adopted her shortly thereafter.

Our newest addition

This is our newly #adopted #dog #Beethoven we just went and met today and brought home.  We are hoping he will integrate ok with our 4 other dogs. We also are planning to change his name because he doesn’t even respond to his current name and we want to have a name for him he can associate with his new loving fresh start. So what are some #name #ideas. #suggestions foreverhome #fureverhome #adopt #home #dogfamily #doghome #pitbull #pitbullsofinstagram #pittylove #pitbulllove #instagood #instagramdogs #dogsofinstagram #dogstagram

For me one of the most important words in life is passion. I believe that it is critical to have passion in life. I try to plug into as many things that I am passionate about as possible. My beliefs are based on what I am passionate about. I study psychology because I am passionate about it. I am a photographer because I am passionate about it. I have companion animals because I am passionate about them. As my life has gone on, I have developed new passions.
