Dogs Days of Ouray

A personal blog from my hometown of Ouray, Colorado. It has somehow morphed into a psychotically obsessed mountain dogs blog!

3 Years Ago Today
We brought the big man, Dobie home. We hoped to get 1 year with him and cannot begin to express how awesome it’s been to be at 3 years.

So, Maureen got the brilliant idea to have a party for his anniversary. We had his 4 closest friends over (Walter and Manny are missing in the first photo, but, otherwise that’s the crew surrounding me, waiting for the food).

So many presents and steak and cookies and cupcakes and floor shitting.

Yep. The old man crapped the floor at his own party. Classic Dobie. You know what they say; “It’s my party and I’ll poop if I want to …”

Had a really fun, but muddy, day down at the park with the troops and we even got to run and play with Paco the Taco - okay, his name might just be Paco but I don’t care … it rhymes and is fun to yell.

He is such a puppy and so incredibly cute and sweet. Marley loves him too, and was even teaching him how to play, since it was his first park trip!

I damn near pushed his little butt up in the car, slammed the door and drove off with him. Then, in a moment of true bravery, the kind that reveals one’s integrity, I decided not to steal my friend’s dog.

I slept all of 5 hours last night. Why?

Because this little shit would not stop laying on top of my head and neck all night and anytime I moved, LICK LICK LICK LICK HI CRAIG IT’S 2AM WANNA PLAY LICK LICK LICK LICK.

She’s so cute and sweet when she comes to visit but, holy hell, she is the worst sleeper ever.

The Dobster is killing me today.

And, yes, his is a particularly difficult life.

Maureen just sent me this from Skyla’s last visit (can’t believe she kept it from me for this long!).

Maureen started making the bed.

Skyla opted to stay where she was.

And we ended up here.

Sometimes you just gotta press your head into something as hard as possible to get comfy!The old man has been slowing down a bunch lately but is still a big old love pile. 
It’s been a bit sad, but also fascinating, to see him start the true “winding down” of life process … it still kills me some asshole dumped him in a shelter where he had to live for at least 4.5 years but I know we’ve given him an awesome two years.
