Default I'm back from my vacation to the other coast!

Hey everybody! We had a great time on vacation- and the pups- particularly Nova- had a great time he re with our amazing pet sitters. I should not call them friends and dog sitters I should just call them dog socalizers. No joke Nova is better than when we left and Kerri's sits and downs were getting a little sloppy (only really a problem you compete but for us it was a problem) and now she is sitting and down-ing fast, sharp and straight.

I brought back the dogs a whole bunch of stuff too!



We got two of Kerri's favorite toy- a pink flamingo. She actually is only getting them at agility, and I needed two identical ones, my parents had picked them up at a store by their house for me to bring home. My mom also got "The grand kids" that pink dragon. She figured that it was crinkly, so Nova would like it and it was pink so Kerri would like it (she is crazy for pink things) and it is that tough fabric stuff so Copley might not kill it right away. I LOVE that my mom knows my dogs so well. The dragon was a big hit but right after I gave it to them Kerri went into the suitcase and got a flamingo- that was hilarious!

Also in Maine the dogs got this "Moose Poop" bag of treats! It is funny because those nuggets are actually what moose poop looks like. Hilarious.



Then the most useful thing was some cat collars i found in a pet store in Boston. Nova has to wear a breakaway collar because she tries to kill herself with other ones, and she needs to wear ID at all times. Her fur was wearing off because it is IMPOSSIBLE to find comfortable cat/breakaway collars- much less something that looks good. I found these stretchy Neoprene collars that are nice and wide, super soft, and really cute. They are velcro but it is suposidly something that does not catch hair and although Nova is short hair so far it is not a problem. Here is the BEST MODEL EVER posing for you. Or maybe it is Nova doing her best not to run from the camera. You decide.



Finally we visited the T station in Boston that Copley is named after-


The station is actually named after a square that is named after this guy-

But Copley is named after the subway station

Yay so happy to hear you had a good time and your pups were obviously in such
awesome care. Both your friends and your mom sound really great. I love the
pictures, and I like the goodies you got, I was just about to ask what those
collar type things were, and of course you explained it for poor little Blondie.
Oh oh now I need to know WHY is Copley named after a subway station? Is
it a loooove thing? Like you maybe met hubby there? Just guessing...

When we got Copley we were both really homesick for Boston. Hubbie went to high school outside of Boston and college with me downtown. Then we spent a while living there before we moved to Vegas. I took the green line into the city every day so I went through Copley square all the time- and I also love architecture so I used to walk up Boylston street to Copley square just to look at the city (and to go to blockbuster at the end).

I didn't want to just name him Boston, we wanted something more creative. First we were actually calling him Bug, but then I thought maybe something Boston related would be fun. I went down the subway map saying names until one really fit him and it was Copley! I think it is cool John Copley was a painter, and it is a great dog name so it just stuck! Actually we thought everyone knew who John Copley was (and even if you don't you have seen one of his paintings for sure if you live in the US or the UK) but it turns out no one can even pronounce it correctly! People think I am a history buff or something but I am all like "everyone doesn't know who this guy is?"

What lovely pictures. I have to say that I laughed so hard at the "moose poop"! I like break away collars for Prince too. I notice that Susan Lanci now has a break away design. I am currently on vacation too and I also have gifts to shower the kids with!!!!!
