A Day In The Life

Dylan and Dee Dee have settled nicely into their new winter home. The best part is they now have a real routine, unlike the constant change of the boat. If you've had the pleasure of sharing your life with a dog, then you know how they adhere to routine.

What does their typical day look like?

Up between 6 and 6:30 and out the door for a walk. It’s a nice neighborhood so there are lots of choices.

Sometimes we go left, sometimes we go right, and sometimes we go straight.

Then it’s one of the two best times of the day - breakfast.

After all that excitement, it’s time for a nap.

The days are usually quiet with Mom and Dad working. Occasionally there is a UPS delivery. One time Dad had to sign for a package.  That was great.

Mom and Dad often go for a walk on the beach after lunch - sans kids. No pets on the beach but Mom and Dad also appreciate some alone time. It’s fine because Mom always gives a treat before they leave. They’re always so well behaved when there’s a treat.

In the late afternoon comes the big highlight of the day. The dog park!!!! It’s a short ride to one of the best dog parks the kids have seen.

They romp and play for an hour or so.

Then back home for dinner! The second favorite time of the day. And, of course, another nap. Who could blame them after all that excitement.

Some snuggle time in the evening and then bed for the final treat of the day. After such a busy day they sleep soundly until it’s morning and they get to do it all over again. It's a tough life but someone has to do it.

Love seeing how much your puppers are enjoying life on land. Both my husband and my pup prefer the certainty (I call it boredom) of life on land. I'm lucky they're both willing to go along with my crazy boat dream for a while.

And my Honey loves what I'm sure Dylan and DeeDee loved most about life on board--knowing exactly where we are most hours of the day. :)
