Tuesdays' Show and Tail . . .


I am joining my pal Angela at West Virginia's Treasure for her Show and Tail - please check her blog out and learn all about it - share in our fun!

Starting out with our morning exercises . . .





My little GS is sick today and his little dog Disco is staying in bed and has decided to sleep in with him. . .




Last weekend we went to Swift Cantrell Park in Kennesaw, GA. A great park that is practically unknown of. It had tow playgrounds - one for the younger children and one for the older ones.




There were signs all over the park explaining different positive concepts - this was Perseverance.



It's complete with two dog parks - one for under 30 pounds and one for over 30 pounds.




Disco was a rescue dog - he had some part of abuse because he's so protective and loving and grateful to us for having him. He's still a bit 'skiddish' and very cautious. He just doesn't know how to play and let go. He's a great 'smeller' though.




He's trying, but he'd just rather smell!





There are signs all around explaining the Iditarod. There's a trail named after Fisher King - a dog that ran in the races. These dogs are special - highly trained - they love running - and are tough dogs.





The lead dog was Fisher King.




And it comes complete with a skate board ramp - had we tried it - one of us would have been killed! lol




I'll also be joining A Southern DayDreamer - Outdoor Wednesday = see other places to visit and join her with places you have visited!

Love, Chatty

Life is good! said...

hope gs is feeling better quick. i love the photo of he and disco. what a lucky lucky dog to have a little boy to grow old with!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Sorry GS is sick! Disco looks so relaxed! While I've been sick Charlie has not left me much at all. They do know when we don't feel well. That park looks awesome. hugs, Linda

Sandra said...

love that shot of disco with GS. so precious, my kind of bed mate. what a wonderful thing to have on Kennesaw. wow, i would love to go there.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

That dog park looks so fun!
Hope your GS feels better soon.

Angela said...

That Disco sure does know how to take a nap! hehehe I hope Andy feels better soon! The dog park looked really big. I've only seen one of them around here and it isn't near as big as my front yard. My dogs would laugh at me if I took them there! lol Little dogs like Disco are always timid when meeting other dogs. My chihuahua was never abused but when we would take her some where where she would see other dogs she would always try to stand her ground around them. It's a personality trait that they have I think. No way would I ride a skate board on that! The one they built here looks like child's play compared to that one! Wow!

Tuesdays' Show & Tail!

Susan said...

Awwwww, Sandie. I'm so sorry Andy is under the weather. But look at that Disco. What a great pup to keep his Master company on the sick bed. Gosh. That was adorable. Take care, Sandie. Susan

Together We Save said...

Stopping by to say hello... I hope your grandson is doing ok.

Ginny said...

Your grandson does not look good, what's wrong? Did he want to try that ramp? Does he have a skateboard? I love the quote about losing interest in living, that is SO true!!! Tell your grandson he is cute even when he's sick.

Doris Sturm said...

What a cute photo of the two "boys" sleeping in the bed together LOL

Gizzy would not do well in a dog park - I'd be afraid of a law suit! He's too much of a bully. His report card reads: "does not play well with others" ;-)

Hope you're having a nice day, Sandie!

Home In The Hollow said...

How adorable that picture of your GS & Disco is!!!! That's a keeper!...:)JP

Mimi said...

Linda O'Connell said...

HOWDY SWEET SANDIE,
I AM SO HAPPY TO HAVE FOUND YOU IN BLOGLAND, SANDIE. YOU SEEM LIKE AN ADORABLE LADY WITH A BIG HEART. YOUR GRANDSON IS A LOVELY LITTLE BOY. BLESS HIS HEART!! I'LL BE PRAYING FOR HIS PROMPT RECOVERY, DEAR. I SEE IN THE PIC THAT HE'S GOT A BEAUTIFUL PUPPY NEXT TO HIM. I STRONGLY BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF HEALINGS IN ANIMALS, ESPECIALLY WITH CHILDREN, DISABLED AND ELDERLY PATIENTS. ANIMALS GIVE SO MUCH UNSELFISH LOVE THAT HUMANS DO NOT GIVE. I AM AN ANIMAL RESCUER, A WILDLIFE AND PRAYER WARRIOR. I HAVE RESCUED MANY ANIMALS IN MY LIFETIME. MY HUBBY IS 70 YEARS OLD AND LOVES GEORGIA. HE WANTS TO VISIT THERE ONE DAY. WE MAKE PLANS TO RETIRE IN ONE LOVELY STATE WITH GOOD WEATHER CONDITIONS IN THE FUTURE. THANK YOU, SANDIE, FOR YOUR KIND VISIT IN MY BLOG!!
GOD BLESS YOU, SANDIE, AND ALL THOSE YOU LOVE!!
ALL THE BEST.
IN GOD'S GARDEN,
STARRY DAWN.

DaCraftyLady said...

Michaele said...

Now THAT'S a dog park! How fun! It is so nice to have a buddy when you are not feeling good. Hope he is feeling better soon.

tattytiara said...

Aw heck, kids and pets sleeping cuddled together. Does it get cuter than that? Not that I've ever seen!

What a great park!

The Boston Lady said...

Disco, I'm a sniffer too! Can't be too careful and besides you took care of GS when he was sick! Sandie, what a great park. Thanks for showcasing it. I'm always fascinated by the whole idea of an iditarod (sp) - even if I can't spell it! Besides it involves snow I believe, I haven't been in that for many years. Ann

Mevely317 said...

Oh, I never tire of seeing puppy-pix! DH and I did the sled-dog tour while in Alaska ... amazing!

PS - Is Andy doing OK? He didn't resemble your usual "crispy critter" in that pix!

That corgi :) said...

poor GS!! So that illness finally got the best of him and he had to stay at home; hoping he is feeling better by tomorrow!!

I like that park! A little of everything, a dog park for two sizes, playgrounds for two age groups, information signs, etc. I really think that would be fun to explore. I think Disco did great at least getting out there among other dogs and not causing a ruckus, that wouldn't happen here for sure (Koda doesn't get a long with other dogs :)

cute picture of Disco and GS, just sorry GS was under the weather :(

betty

Crystal Mary said...

I love the last cartoon pic, do I shake her hand or snif her tail!!

I am so glad your grandson has his own mate, dogs are wonderful friends. I love looking at family photos, it makes everything so much more real. Love ya. C XXXX

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Oh, I hope that your DGS is better soon, Sandie! I love Disco. He's such a sweetie pie.

Have missed you. Wanted to drop by and catch up with you. Hope you are doing well and improving with each day.

Love you...

XO,

Sheila :-)

I'm reminded of the movie Balto! LOVED that one, and haven't seen it in so long! I'm going to have to pick it up someday!.. Hope your grandson is feeling better soon! ~tina

Velvet Over Steel said...

Aww.. I'm sure his dog does make him feel at least a little better. Too cute! Hope GS feels better Soon too!

That is such a cool park! Some people are trying to get a dog park around here. It would be someplace to safely take Ms. Pickles. :-)

Sharon Kirby said...

Hoping that your GS feels better soon. Looks like he's got the best buddy, though, for company! Such a cute picture.

We take Marty to a nearby dogpark. He's just like Disco - does a little bit of running with the other dogs - but mostly he's off on his own, sniffing like the hound that he is!

I love seeing the dogs interact - they're very much like people...
