A while back, another park regular commented that I looked geared up for a showdown, so I decided to assess my setup. Ive never quite considered how silly I look with all my dog park gear strapped to my body.
Things I pretty much always have on me:Both Bows leashes, with custom loops that allow them to be easily clipped around my torso A camera the DSLR most of the time, or cell phone camera at minimum My Nomadic AP-03 Moving Option waist pack. It was designed to be belted around the hips,...

They look like each other. So they must love each other very much.
Disregarding the fact that they dont look that much alike, this was strange logic to me
Basenjis are everywhere. Theres a little Basenji in everything. Theyre little horndogs.
This person was extrapolating a bit from the primitive status of Basenjis, and connecting it to the perceived ubiquity of Basenji mixes. An amusing perception (regardless of accuracy) that goes against the decline in purebred Basenjis over the years

Finally Im putting up pictures from the Novato Shiba Picnic 2013! My sister and I leashed up the Bows and headed over to check out the festivities this year, making it just a bit after the group photo. With temperatures somewhere in the upper 80s and minimal shade, Im afraid we didnt last through many of the afternoon events
We got to catch the rescue parade
which wasnt much of a parade, since it was so hot that nobody wanted to move! I didnt blame them. Adoptees and adoptables from Northern...

This is my third year of tracking our pet finances here at the House of Two Bows. This is an ongoing effort to get a practical sense of what it costs to keep two 20 ~ 30 pound adult dogs in an area of the US with relatively high costs of living. Previous posts in this series can be found under the category of finances.
The Cost of (Pet) Things for May 2013:Food: $67 [previous month, $66] Treats: $16 [previous, $11] Grooming: $0 [previous, $7] Accessories and misc: $0 [previous, $0] Vet &...

At least park officials finally saw fit to mow the seldom-shorn half of this park, leaving a field of weedy hay. All the better to run free!
I, too, could do with some mental mowing. Got an overgrowth of brainweeds to hack down. This long weekend (for U.S. folks, anyway) seems like a good time for a brief blogging hiatus. Were still around on Facebook, where chatter is...
