Skinny and sleepy!

Captain mid-tail wag!

I am sooooo glad to be home! It was wonderful to see all our family and friends on the East coast, but we had a stressful time leaving Captain - long story, but luckily we ended up being able to switch him to somewhere he seems much happier while we were gone. The folks at K9 Playtime love Captain and take great care of him and keep us posted on how he's doing. He was so wiggly and excited when we picked him up, and he's happily asleep on 'his' couch now.

Unfortunately Captain never seems to eat much while I'm gone, so he's pretty skinny. My goal is to fatten him back up to his usual 60 lbs. Anyone have any tips for Vizsla-mommy-has-left-me anxiety?
I'm so tired, mom, but you can still rub my belly!

Hope everyone had a great holiday, and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas!


Hope everyone is enjoying a very happy holiday season! If you're lucky enough to have not traveled far and are snuggled up on your couch with your Vizsla, give him or her (or them!) a big hug for me! We're back East for a quick holiday family visit, while Captain's living it up at O'Paws. He even got to go to a Crissy Field SF Vizsla Meet-up without us. Wonder if he took any good pictures for me :-) Oh well, next time.

Bend it like Captain

Captain's favorite new sport? Soccer! (Or, 'football' for any non-Americans out there.... although in Captain's case 'mouth & pawball' might be more appropriate).

Sure, the ball might be a tad big for his mouth- but he LOVES chasing it!

Tis the season

The lights are up, the tree is decorated (and on top of the kennel!), and Captain is cuddling! We didn't make it to any beaches or special parks this weekend (just our usual jaunts), but Captain still enjoyed blankets, bones, and basking in the sun (when it was out). He also had fun at a little holiday party we threw at our apartment with some friends - always the center of attention :-)

Enjoying a treat:
Playing with his blanket:

On top of daddy:

I'm already somewhat dreading having to leave him again soon when we go back East for Christmas... but, Captain will be with our friends at O'Paws for almost 5 days, and I know he'll be well taken care of in "Vizlsa heaven".

Hope everyone had a good weekend!

Video time!

More installments from YouTube, just for fun!

This poor guy just can't get that oddly familiar looking puppy to chase him :-)


Too cute. Captain used to stop and stare at his reflection in store windows.

And the next one- oh, the things we do to our dogs:


Got me thinking about our tree this year too- last year we had a teeny one on top of a cabinet, but this year I'm hoping to get a full sized one... that is, if Captain will leave it alone.

Finally, the puppy in this one just killed me! I want another one!


Have a good day and give your Vizsla a big squeeze!
