A day at the doggie beach

I love the beach. And I love Maggie (my puppy). So I jumped at the chance to bring her to the beach. Since it’s off season right now, I planned to bring her to the regular beach and walk her on-leash. It’s a good thing I didn’t do this, because we found out that dogs are not allowed on the beach/boardwalk after April (at least in Manasquan. I haven’t checked with other beaches). Before we left our apartment, Matt decided to look online and see if there were any off-leash beaches for dogs. So, using trusty google search, we came across this website, http://www.bringfido.com/, and found a dog beach in Manasquan that looked promising. We decided to give it a whirl. Continue reading

I don’t have children, and I’m getting a little too old to go out trick or treating anymore (although if I feel the urge to dress up there is usually a Halloween party going on somewhere I could always crash). But anyway, since I don’t have children and I would feel slightly ridiculous dressing up myself – I came up with the next best thing… Continue reading

The Puppy Debate

I love dogs. I love them so much that sometimes I have to remind myself that they are not actually human. Growing up in Asia, we always had at least 2 dogs, usually more (they are not real big on neutering or spaying pups over there). There were so many stray dogs roaming the streets, and sometimes one would just wind up on our door step and my mom would take it in. My mom is probably more dog obsessed than I am, and probably part of the reason why I love them so much – a combination of learned behavior and genetics. Continue reading
