If you love dogs, you’ve come to the right place! A few thoughts on these wagging, four-legged friends:
1) Do you ever wonder what your dog would say if they spoke English? I have full conversations with my dog, Finn, every day but he has never once answered.
2) I frequently wish I was my dog. Finn’s only responsibilities are to give love and be loved. His days are filled with walks, naps, tasty treats, and fun toys—what more could you want?!
3) You should probably read Picture Book by Dog by Michael Relth, a cute and inspiring “auto-biographical” story of a shelter dog who finds a forever home and best friend. As someone who’s spent time volunteering as a pet publicist in a local animal shelter, I love seeing books that help break the stigma about adopting shelter dogs!
Now let’s meet the dogs of LBYR!
Tastiest snack: Peanut butter, strawberries, watermelon, cantaloupe
Favorite toy: anything that dispenses treats or is covered in food
My tail is wagging the most when my owner comes home or it’s dinner time.
Age: 3 months
Breed: Mini Goldendoodle
Tastiest snack: Chicken Liver treats!
Favorite toy: Hedgey (aka my stuffed Hedgehog with a squeaker)
My tail is wagging the most when people in the park don’t pay attention to me. I’m cute, why won’t they just pet me?
Age: 4.5 months (and 40+ lbs!)
Breed: German Shepherd/Coonhound/Newfoundland mix! A mutt!
Tastiest snack: Chicken. Or bacon. Or anything I find in the dirt.
Favorite toy: Fire hose
My tail is wagging the most when I wake up in the morning and see my family. I love to wake each person up with tons of kisses and my giant paws in their face.
Name: Monkey (or Her Royal Highness Monkey-Shines, the Monk-ster, and Monk)
Tastiest snack: Buffalo treats
Favorite toy: Orange squeaky bone
My tail is wagging the most when my family is watching tv and I want to play so I throw my toys at them. Or when I find a coconut outside and proceed to destroy it. Or when one of my humans gives me tummy pats.
Breed: Golden Retriever
Tastiest snack: Peanut butter, scrambled eggs on Saturdays, ice cream
Favorite toy: I love tennis balls so much I can’t be left alone with them (because I tear them to shreds). Or paper, because I like shredding that too.
My tail is wagging the most when anyone takes out my leash to go for a walk and when I get to howl along to firetrucks.
Name: Gracie with Princess photobombing in the back!
Age: Gracie is 2 and Princess is 7
Breed: Gracie is a black lab mix and Princess is a fluffy mutt
Tastiest snack: Cheese!
Favorite toy: Anything with a squeaker, so they can destroy the squeaker
Our tails are wagging the most when family comes home.
Tastiest snack: Ark Naturals Dental Chews – we have tricked her into thinking that this dog toothpaste is a treat
Favorite toy: A corduroy fox that she tries to wrestle into submission on a nightly basis
My tail is wagging the most when Leo and Josie come home from school.
