Apple Picking

A few Sundays ago we went apple picking and the orchard we went to allowed dogs. :) Amici came with us and even was able to go on a hayride! Here are some pics from the afternoon:

The apple stand- this is where you could buy prepicked apples, little pumpkins, and other vegetables.

Airplanes owned by the farmer which are on display for the customers to enjoy.

The hayride!

My favorite picture from the day:

Bama tagged us to list all the nicknames we have for Amici. Here they are:
Mics (pronounced meeks), Puppy, Puppers, Punk (when he is being a devil), Pup (the last 4 we save just for in our house- we really do use his real name). :)

Bama also tagged us to share what kind of car best shows or resembles Amici's personality. To be honest, this is a better question for Amici's Dad to answer but since he isn't here, we'd have to pick our favorite vehicle:
The Honda WOW concept car. We aren't sure if it will ever come to the USA but if it did we would seriously consider buying it! It fits Amici because it is versatile. Amici is very dog friendly as well as gentle and friendly with children. He loves to do a variety of things and this car lets you do just that! Also, WOW stands for "wonderful, openhearted wagon" and Amici is definitely a WONDERFUL pup as well as very open hearted and lovable. :)

The Brat Pack asked us to share what we like about the DWB (Dogs with Blogs).
1. We like meeting others that have a love for dogs as much as we do! (And other animals too!).
2. It is nice to be supported, especially when your pup has seizures or does other scary things (e.g. trying to jump out 2nd story window)
3. We like the sharing aspect of DWB. We have been able to see new places/different types of dogs from all over and we get to see what each pup likes to do for fun with his/her family.
4. Reviews for free! It is good to learn from other dogs and their owners what foods, toys, treats, beds, collars, etc. work for them.
5. The DWB has motivated us to become more involved in our community (e.g. PAWS in the park).
