Wordless Wednesday: Eating in Style

For a while my mom and I had joked that it would be funny/cute to get an antique high chair for Olivia so she could join the family at meal time. My mom found an old wooden high chair in a second hand shop for a good price and brought it home. Then this happened.

Boston Terriers Go To Horse Shoe Falls

The latest Boston Terrier meet-up we went to was almost two hours away and at Horse Shoe Falls. It's a park that has... you guessed it.... water falls. We took the pups to play in the water (the rivers around the falls) and a good time was had by all! After Olivia's big swimming adventure at the dog park pool she seemed a little braver about the water at the falls but wasn't as enthusiastic as she was at the dog park. The water at the falls was quite cold though, and I wonder if that was a factor.

Q: What do you call a group of Bostons?
A: An army of gremlins!

Olivia Gets Over Her Fear of Water at Yappy Hour

Last Thursday our local SPCA held a Yappy Hour with cash bar and open dog park. Their dog park is $40/year but for Yappy Hour night it's free to anyone. The dog park has this really nice pool for the dogs with a fountain in the middle of it. Two of the sides are beach entry style (walk in) and it's about 2 ft in the center so little dogs have to actually swim but big dogs can just sort plow right through.

Olivia is terrified of water. She's been slowly conquering her fear but nothing like what Brian and I saw at the dog park that night. Olivia started off a little timid and then slowly, slowly she got braver and braver with how far in she would go in. This was all in the name of getting a tennis ball of course. By the time we left the dog park Olivia was swimming back and forth across the pool like she'd been doing her whole life. I was such a proud mama! My little Boston is now my water buffalo!
