The on-the-way-to-work beach.


A walk before work has new meaning with a border collie puppy. There's no skimping on it. A little trot around the neighborhood isn't going to cut it. No way, no how.


We spend about 1/2 an hour doing tricks and fun stuff every single morning at home, but to help Banksy have awesome manners for spending the day quietly in the dog run at work, the morning walk has to, for sure, have some running.


The on-the-way-to-work beach is conveniently located exactly on the way to work. It goes on for a miles, and on a cool gray morning not too many people are hanging out down there. We can practice a million recalls. She's getting comfortable meeting strange dogs. She gets it that random joggers don't want her to run along with them to practice circle work. Everyone she meets out there is always her new best friend. Banksy has a lot of friends.


Banksy's getting big! For a little border collie, anyways. Big puppies have a LOT of energy. We sure are lucky to have an on-the-way-to-work beach to visit on the way to work.

You are the perfect mom for a Banksy. Such a lucky pup.

You're so lucky! You have a puppy that grows! And a beach! My puppy just glares at me and refuses to grow (or pretty much anything else) until I do something fun with her. Maybe this week...

Channan maybe Kirk wants you to cover all smooth surfaces in your house with 100 mismatched throw rugs! Some of them from Costco! Maybe she will think that's fun and grow! Banksy hates our new floor coverings because not only does it look crazy but there is less room to stare!
