Hawaii Island Humane Society Pet Walk

I am one lucky dog and when I heard about the opportunity to help raise funds for pets less fortunate than I am, I said sign me up! Plus, I get to go on a walk with fellow dogs and humans. Yipee! I sent out an email to all my, Alpha’s and Alpha Fem’s friends asking them to sponsor me for the walk and I raised $570! Team Pets for Fitness raised $1670 and we came in 4th place. We raised over $20,000 total for the Humane Society.

Thank you so much for your generous support.

Here I am trying on my new shades I’m going to be sporting on the walk.

Alpha Fem and I are ready for the walk. Alpha had to teach yoga so he met us later.

This is my buddy Miss Mandy or shall I say, Miss Butterfly.

And here are my hiking buddies with Nose for Adventure.

After the walk, I joined the Weimaraner Crew and tried to pass.

The post walk party was held at Ruby and Bella’s home. Over 15 of us dogs ran around and
swam. The water felt great after walking in the hot sun.

It was an awesome day. Yes, I do settle down eventually, especially after an action packed day and a bath.
Thanks everyone.

Petco Halloween Party

Last year for Halloween I went as myself because no matter what they put on me, I tore it off. This year, I felt it would be best to just go with the flow and let them costume me.

I am a Naturalist Trail Guide Dog, aka Alpha’s Mini Me since he used to be a Naturalist Guide himself. He said I am really going as a Naturalist since I don’t have any pants on.

The Competition was stiff, but I won 3rd Place! $5 gift certificate and lots of treats.

My favorite part was bobbing for tennis balls. So many balls, so little time…

Until next year, Happy Halloween!

My First Sleepover

My buddy Cooper came to stay with us while his family went to Honolulu for the weekend. I’ve known Cooper since I was a pup. Cooper is 5 years old but he still lets me play with him.

I like playing tug of war with Cooper because he doesn’t say “drop” like Alpha does. We can keep tugging as long as we want.

We did a pack walk on Walua Road. I wanted to run ahead but Alpha insisted that we heel.

The next day, we did a pack hike in Kaloko. Cesar would have been proud.

It was raining and muddy on the trail so Alpha gave us baths. I’m a wash, shake and go kind of dog but I had to wait for Cooper to get brushed since he’s sporting a longer do.

Time to rest.

Time to play again. Oh come on, Cooper, get up, you’ve slept long enough. Game on.

I’ll just have to go back to trying to get Banyan to play with me.

Road Trip to See the Dog Show in Hilo

Today we went on a road trip to Hilo.

The Alpha’s wanted to see the dog show, but I couldn’t go because I was not 6 months old yet. I stayed at a nice persons house. It was fun anyway, because I got to hike Pu’u Hulu Hulu at the top of the saddle road.



I also got to stretch my legs on the way home by Volcano National Park.
