A Day Trip to Montserrat

Last Friday, taking advantage of the Spanish National Holiday, we decided to go on a trip somewhere with Nix. The chosen destination was Montserrat. Actually, the name means “serrated mountain” in Catalan, due to the mountains’ form. There is a monastery at the top, famous for both its location and …

Choosing an Agility Club

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, we had been thinking about joining an agility class. We visited two different clubs in the area, more or less at the same distance from our home. The people in both clubs were very nice and helpful, but there were important differences between …

Agility Fun & Sport Set

My last post was on Christmas Eve, so first of all, Happy New Year! Taking some time off the website has really done me good. I still don’t want to force myself to write, and I haven’t figured out when it’ll be best to post, but at least I’ve recovered …

Car Travel with Dogs: Getting the Right Seat Cover

Ideas for the Summer: Nayeco Freez Toys – Dumbbell

Having Some Fun in a Pool

Last weeked we decided that Nix should try something new. Seeing that a while back she decided to jump into a lake and the high temperatures we’ve been having lately (around 28 ºC together with high levels of humidity in the air, which make it worse), we thought she’d enjoy …

Toys: Nayeco Tugging Rope

Nix really enjoys playing tug-of-war: she loves teasing other dogs and people into grabbing the other end of a rope, branch or toy and having them pull. As I mentioned in an earlier post, Nix got a couple of toys for Christmas, and one of them was the Nayeco tugging …
