Mt. Washington Swim Club Dog Day

A few weeks ago our pool, the Mt. Washington Swim Club, closed for the season since it’s starting to get cold.

The pool people decided the last day would be a “Dog Day.”  They invited members to bring by their dog (or in our case dogs) for a swim.  We took Cody and Sierra to the pool but they were not to keen on getting into the water.  Sierra kept jumping on us nervously and Cody seemed a little nervous too.  They saw the other dogs swimming and thought “Do we have to do that?”  We didn’t make them get into the water but did encourage them to try to get in to no avail.

As you can see other dogs were having a blast in the pool though.  I hope they do the Dog Day at the pool again since it was a lot of fun bringing Cody and Sierra by even though they didn’t go swimming.  Hopefully they will do it again next year and let dogs stay in the pool a little longer.

It was sad to see the pool close!  Don’t you wish Summer could last forever?

Pyrates For Pups Maryland SPCA Fundraiser – September 21st, 5-9pm

The Maryland SPCA along with local Baltimore food trucks and Heavy Seas beers will be holding a fundraiser “Pyrates For Pups” tomorrow night, Friday September 21st, 2012 from 5-9pm.  The fun event will be located at Swann Park in downtown Baltimore and will feature live music by Hanover Blue.

Admission to Pyrates For Pups is free but a percentage of the food and drink sales will be donated to the MD SPCA so they can continue to do great work for homeless animals in Baltimore.  So be sure to go down and stuff your face with delicious food from Baltimore’s best food trucks and great beet for Heavy Sees.

If you are looking to add to your loving family there will be adoptable dogs on site.  The dogs will be dressed up like pirates, which should make you want to adopt them!

If you have a dog (or dogs) there will be an off-leash play area at the Downtown Dog Resort & Spa.  So this will be a great happening event for area dog lovers who want to have some fun all while benefiting a good cause.

Parking will be available at the onsite parking lot and there should be some spaces around the neighborhood.

Getting a Dog Bath at Scrub-A-Dub

Cody and Sierra were getting a little bit stinky and smelly, so we decided it would be a good idea to take them to get a dog bath. Instead of doing it at home we sometimes like to go to a place called Scrub-A-Dub Dog Baths in Mt. Washington.

It’s a lot easier using a DIY dog bath then attempting to give your dogs a bath at home.  A dog washing facility like Scrub-A-Dub provides towels, a blow dryer, aprons, and a you get to use a dog bath tub.  This saves time and makes the whole process convenient, less messy, and faster.

I took some pictures of Cody when we were giving him a bath and as you can see he seemed to not mind too much.  Sierra is a bit difficult when getting a dog bath and requires two people.  I couldn’t get pictures of her but she might prefer that.  We try not to get their heads wet since they don’t seem to like it.

You do have to bring your own Dog Shampoo to Scrub-A-Dub, so you might want to keep that in mind if you go over there.  It’s $15 for each fresh smelling dog (after they have dried off of course) which we feel is well worth it.  Do you really want stinky dogs on your couch or bed?

Singing Puppy and Dogs Improvise the Blues

Sierra and Scout

It’s a blistering hot day here in Baltimore but Sierra, Scout, and Cody have a good way to keep cool, by singing the Blues! That’s right it seems all three of these English Shepherds are fans of the blues.  Maybe they have the blues because of the heat and are not playing outside today.  I don’t know!  I can only tell you I love playing the blues with them! 🙂

Cody did sing but unfortunately he wasn’t in the field of view for the video.  You can still hear his nice deep bass voice though.
