The face of success

This is what a good time and a successful trip to the doggy park looks like:

Some might say you look kind of gross, or dangerous, or even a little crazy. But they are wrong. They are so very, very wrong. This my friends is what it looks like to live to the fullest. This is the face of a dog who has smelled everything he could, ran as fast as the big dogs, tackled all his friends, been petted by everyone who was there and then looked around and said, "I came, I smelled, I peed and I CONQUERED!"

This too can be what you look like if you want it bad enough.

Alven's Tip Of The Day:
Don't be afraid to get a little dirty. You don't get anywhere by stepping around every puddle you come across. Jump in like a real dog!


  1. Live long and smell bad!!


  2. Alven, you are the best! We have a little long haired doxie (Lovie)who looks just like you!
    We live in Berlin (Germany)and in Chicago and enjoy reading about you guys so much! I am so happy for you that after your first mean owners you found a great home!!!!
    Keep up the good work and visit us in Chicago some day,
    Anette and Lovie

  3. The look of content.

  4. Are you sure you didn't lose a play match with dottie?

    Love Ruby & Penny
