Charlie’s Visit


When we took Charlie, Paul’s sister’s dog, to the Riverview Dog Park last weekend we really didn’t know what we’d be getting into. Charlie loves the park, so did Corona when she was a few years younger and a bit feistier, and we planned this to get rid of his exuberant puppy pacing.

He certainly did some running, jumping, playing and humping while he was there and Corona, our usually energetic Dogo Argentino, watched and he was the laugh of the park while we put up with it. When he stopped running and started focusing on a particular dog we had to high tail it out of there before too much more happened.

Grateful for the experience of Charlie and Corona at the dog park, it certainly took the life out of our old dog and didn’t stop this young pup from traveling the hallways when we got him home.

Halloween Again, and This Time with a Guest


Charlie, our adopted Mini Schnauzer and Cairn Terrier, didn’t realize what he was getting into coming over during the Halloween weekend but loved every minute of it. It was very difficult to get only him in a lot of pictures as our photogenic Dogo was jealous of him getting the spot light.

It wasn’t all fun and games during our Halloween weekend of festivities, Charlie was in boot camp to learn a few tricks as well as to learn to settle down. We simply incorporated pictures, dress-up and attitude into his lessons and he took part with eagerness. This is one dog who could care less about wearing clothes.

We let our mature Dogo Argentino do some of the training for us by simmering the hyperness of the puppy and teaching him to go to bed. Russ did his part, as well, by teaching Charlie his boundaries and making sure he didn’t infiltrate his room.
All in all it was a pretty good weekend with trick or treaters, party crashers and frights for all to enjoy. 🙂 Can’t wait to see what happens next Halloween.

Corona Gets A Bone

Corona Gets a Stick

Corona Gets a Stick

Corona loves to swim, especially if she has a stick to retrieve and it doesn’t matter the size. As long as this Dogo Argentino can see it she’ll get it again and again and again.

Dogo Argentino’s are certainly known for their great amount of endurance and perseverance and Corona is no exception. We usually tire of throwing it before we see her slow down. But with balls Corona just doesn’t care unless there’s another dog who wants it.

Although the water makes her stink it sure does slow her pacing at home!

Corona Shows Her Age

Corona, although still active and occasionally annoying at home, shows her old age at the dog park when a fellow Dogo Argentino wants to play.  Jemma, still a puppy at 8 months, wants nothing more than to play with another dog and displays the infamous "I wanna play" stance while Corona turns her head to the people.

Going on five years old Corona’s showing the energy loss although she never admits defeat and will always try to keep up. 

With the humid and hot weather Isaac’s Dog Run Park is a treat for our Dogo just to get some breeze over her skin and through her short fur so she’s not too much for running until she’s cooled down enough in the water.  Although even just the fresh air and smells are enough to tire her out and have her sleep soundly.

We’ll definitely be back and Corona will be happy to feel the breeze and smell what dogs it brings.
