Dogs Can Climb Trees

March 30, 2012

I’ve spent time the last couple of weeks with two amazing dogs at Austin Pets Alive! Gracie and Olive.

Gracie can be a bit mouthy, but she’s eager to learn and making great progress. She can destroy a stuffie toy in less than 10 seconds, and she doesn’t know that dogs aren’t supposed to climb trees.

Olive is a petite pittie princess. She walks well on her leash, loves cheesy duck crackers and is happy to chase birds out of the yard.

Sometimes I get attached to the dogs that I meet and get to volunteer with. There are awesome animals waiting to be adopted, and I wish I could take them all. Since I can’t take one of these two, I think you should.

Meet Babs

Oh, goodness. At least once a week — while photographing adoptable dogs for Austin Pets Alive! — I fall in the love with a new face.

This week, it was Babs. I mean really, look at her!

She’s a 3-month-old lab/hound mix with the most beautiful coloring and playful disposition. I hope she’ll find a wonderful home soon.

I put this little video together for the Austin Pets Alive! dog-walking program. I’m there every Tuesday night with my walking shoes on and treats in-hand. If you’re interested, please join us!
