new friends, chew toys and personality to spare

It’s been an exciting couple of days for Kona. She enjoyed visiting with Alex’s brother, and reacted exactly as we expected. (post continues below)

Alex took the day off work Friday to spend some time with Spenser and do a few chores around the house, so Kona got to spend a lot of time outside on a sunny 60-degree day.  Then, yesterday, we had errands to run in Colorado, which meant Kona was able to burn off some energy at Doggie Day Camp.

She was excited to see her old friends, the employees there who know her by name, and made some new ones, including a giant schnauzer named Mulligan! (post continues below)

PetSmart was having a sale on Nylabone products too, so it was Kona’s lucky day. We stocked up. But we’ll be lucky if this haul lasts us a month, because she goes through even the toughest chew toys like crazy. Obviously, this leads to a steep chew toy budget, but it’s worth it if it keeps Kona from destroying other things, like our furniture. (post continues below)

Our final puppy purchase, a new collar, was more of an impulse buy, but it looks great. It’s a good compromise for me and Alex, as it’s not only “girly” (for me – and Kona, of course) but also “outdoorsy” (for Alex). Kona’s not a fan of wearing canine clothes, nor would we want her to be, so we try to find dog collars with a little personality.




  1. LOVE the collar! Good Choice! 🙂
