An Embarrassment of (Social Media) Riches

So many social media platforms. So little time to properly tend to each one…Our dog family continues to evolve. We lost our beloved Larry – our beautiful cover boy – one year ago. Larry lost his four-month long battle with lymphoma on June 30, 2012.

Poor Tiger was so despondent and didn’t want to be an only dog. So we took him out to Greyhound Pets Inc. so he could meet a new friend. Out of all the lovely dogs there, Tiger chose the beautiful Truman.

They quickly became best friends.
Best Friends in Winthrop
Seattle Center Sniffies
…and partners in crime…Dead Dog Bed
Tiger and Truman are energetic young boys who love their daily adventures at Seattle Center. Especially when they run into other greyhound friends. The boys at Seattle Center
So while it has been heartbreaking to say goodbye to Larry, and Aurelia and Ducati before him…Aurelia and Ducati
…we celebrate Tiger and Truman. They are truly wonderful and special boys!

Tiger, Tiger, Burning Bright

Welcoming Tiger, our newest Methow Dog! Here’s his profile from the local “Greyhound Dating Service”. Tiger came to live with us on March 7, 2012.

Tiger

One thing the good folks at Greyhound Pets, Inc. left off his description is that Tiger likes shoes. He really likes shoes. Being a glass half-full type, Tiger’s love of human footwear has forced us to stop leaving our shoes haphazardly lying around. The apartment is looking much less cluttered these days. Thank you Tiger!

Tiger feels right at home. Here he is waking up on his very first morning with us.

He is now sporting a beautiful new collar from Karen’s Kollars.

Larry is really happy to have a new friend. He has been a little down since Aurelia left us in December. Here they are enjoying a beautiful day last summer in Winthrop.

Methow Dog Now and Then

I was surfing the backwaters of cyberspace and came across our original “Dog Blog.” We gave our greyhounds Aurelia and Ducati their own blog in 2006 when we got our Mazama property.

It was during those family camping trips that we formed the idea of Methow Dog as a business. Now, five years later, we are making the best dog treats ever
…and we still love camping out with the dogs in the beautiful Methow Valley.

Pit Bulls on Parade

Come and meet adoptable Pit Bulls from the Puget Sound.  Join Methow Dog Saturday August 21 for “Pit Bulls on Parade.” From 10:00 – 3:00 at Reber Ranch, 28606 132nd Avenue Southeast, Kent.

Bulls Eye Rescue puts on this fun event. Bulls Eye is is a registered charity in Washington state and a Federal non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Bulls Eye’s core value is to provide education about the Pit Bull “breed” to the public, current Pit Bull owners, other rescue organizations and shelters throughout the Puget Sound region. BullsEye is not a shelter. Instead, they are a network of foster homes and volunteers working with pit bull friendly, Puget Sound region shelters to give a handful of Pit Bulls a second chance.

Hope to see you there!
