Charlie bit me…

We live in a duplex and share a backyard with our neighbors and another duplex. One of our neighbors has a cute little puppy named Charlie. He is a rescue puppy and is quite scared of people but loves to play with our dog Red. I should also note that all of our units were just re-modeled so there is a lot of “junk” in our backyard which is finally getting cleaned up this week. The pictures below will look like two junk yard dogs fighting in a junk yard. But now you know the truth. Enjoy.

The Showdown: Scrappy Puppy Vs. Mexican Fighting Dog

“Charlie bit me”

Fierce, I know.

Red finally uses her size to an advantage.

Mutual Biting.

Red sticking out her tongue at Charlie while he is not looking. Hey, I never said she was mature.

We weren’t sure how these two sharing a backyard would work, seeing their size difference. We are pleased to know our street dogs get along and are thankful that Charlie is such a scrappy pup that usually dominates Red. They play for hours each day, running in and out of the house. It’s great. I am sure I will post more about Charlie and Red over the summer as he gets a little bigger! Maybe by the end of summer Red will have a boyfriend?

Picnic in the Park

Spring has arrived here in Denver.  A few snow storms may still be in our future, but the buds on the trees are undeniable proof that spring is here.

So for lunch the other day, we headed over to City Park.  It’s the largest park in Denver’s city limits and it’s only a few miles from our house.  It has a beautiful lake in the middle of the park with a path around it.  We packed a lunch, grabbed a blanket, and put Red on the leash for a little picnic in the park.

The air was cool, but the sun was warm.  We found a great spot overlooking the city skyline with the backdrop of mountains.  The lunch was a simple PB&J sandwich with an apple and some celery, but it seemed to taste especially good in that setting.

The only thing keeping us from fully relaxing, was Red being tied up to the bench next to us AND the number of dogs passing by. Red being the socialite that she is, was ever so excited to greet her new friends….by running towards them… in the process almost taking off our heads with her leash.

It was a romantic, fun date in the park. Below are some pictures.

And now time for the self timer picture. Be IMPRESSED.

PS. We LOVE Denver.
