Red Dog's Folly

While many of you were vainly attempting to stay dry over the weekend, the Red Dog was busy expanding her sphere of influence and simultaneously sampling the delights of a new beach (to her) called Folly Beach. She enjoyed it immensely (thanks Aunt Dian) and hopes to visit again soon...after another trip to the Cape, of course! She also wanted to share with her cyber-friends her new beach friends Maddie and Montana. They are five-and-a-half-year-old sisters who get to play on that awesome expanse of sand every morning...lucky girls! Lots more videos were taken but Mr. Man says we can't share them all at once due to some stupid bandwidth thing...whatever. Stay tuned and until then enjoy the lovely sights and sounds of the Red Dog and friends on Folly Beach!

Silly Beach Fun

Behold what transpires when Joey the Tennessee Cattle Hound (our own "special" breed) meets-up with the dreaded surf-foam at Folly Beach:

What a silly boy...Katy wasn't scared, that's for sure!

A Most Auspicious Day

As the days grow shorter and the world moves into the Red Dog's favorite time of the year, she would like to pause to thank all of her friends and people for the good stuff and love that they all have sent her way. Few days pass by without someone asking about her or sending her their loving thoughts and words. This really gets the Red Dog's juices flowing...it makes her hop with excitement (watch the videos, you'll see). Right now she is angling for another trip to the beach, and of course her first choice always will be the Cape. This, however, is negotiable as Shiva will go anywhere her people go as long as she's not left behind! She also is pestering Mr. Man to post more of his wonderful videos because that's how the world can see how happy AND magnificent the Red Dog really is. Finally, she thinks she's got this hijacking of Mr. Man's facebook page thing down, so those of her followers who have one too need to send friend requests...she'll make sure they get accepted! WOOF!

Family Fun With the Red Dog

Not a day goes by that the Red Dog doesn't love her family, and it's a really great day when she is able to love one of her "little ones." She wants all of you to remember to love your people every day too!

Deep Thoughts (from the Red Dog's desk)

The Red Dog has been thinking a lot lately about the meaning of life (at least according to her) and she thinks people are pretty stupid not to get it...it's so simple that it makes her a little crazy. All they have to do is be nice and live each day like it's their last...after all, it might be. She doesn't understand why they go on power-trips or get all caught-up with those big cars and flashy things because none of that stuff can pet her head like one of her people can. Take a walk along the river in the morning sunshine...stink-roll in the fresh-cut grass on a summer afternoon...lay on the couch next to your favorite person while watching mindless daytime television...splash in the surf at the Cape with the people you love most. These are the things that really matter, the things that make you feel warm on the inside, the things that make you feel joy and love. The Red Dog gets it, so why can't we?
