Dog Day Afternoon Nap

You Know it's Cold When Xena Naps on My Bed

These days Xena takes most of her naps in her open crate. She likes it there. It's quiet, cozy, away from the noise of the household, and private. Mostly, though, I think it's also easy-access. At 12, you would think her joints might be getting a bit testy and she'd avoid jumping up, but nothing has changed. She is still quite playful and agile. She has always preferred sleeping on the groung level to my bed, except when it is cold. Then all bets are off. Here I caught her in a rare nap on a chilly day. We're getting more of them this Winter than usual. Global warming? I don't see it here...not this Winter.

My new Adopt a Dog Park campaign is moving along...well,...slow. I could really use some of you to join and perhaps add your dog photos or get a discussion started. Hey, at least I'm trying to do something socially responsible.

My second step was to set up a website in addition to the above discussion forum and photo sharing setup. My website allows you to contact me and actually adopt a dog park. Check it out at Adopt a Dog Park Website. You can write to me at if you're interested in helping to clean up your own dog park. Do it for your dog.

If you would like to submit your dog park photos to me, I will put them on Woofing Wednesday and/or on my new blog, the All Things Dog Blog. You can submit your dog park photos, with dog's name and park name and city/State to me at Thanks, and I'll look forward to hearing from you and your furry best friend.
