We recently visited New York and explored the sights of the city on a bus tour. It’s was a unique experience.As this was a hop on/hop off tour, some of the highlights were: M&M’S World Stop, Grand Central Terminal, Rockefeller Center, Downtown (Times Square), 5th Avenue Midtown, Empire State Building / Korea Town, Flatiron District, Union Square, Greenwich Village/NYU, NoHo, SoHo/Little Italy, Chinatown, Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall, Wall Street / Charging Bull, Madison Square Garden/Penn Station, Theater District Shopping Court.
Adorable Pup Won’t Let Sibling Pass No Matter How Urgent It Is! LOL Dino the golden retriever has decided he’s going to block the house’s main door today, even if his sibling, Gordo, the English bulldog wants out. Tsk, tsk! This fur ball just refuses to budge! He lies squarely in front of the door, and Gordo just can’t get through! What could Dino be thinking? What a naughty pup! Maybe he’s just too comfortable, or maybe the spot is too good to give up. Honestly, your guess is as good as mine – but this fur ball needs to let Gordo go outside sooner or later, right? Luckily, a swift word from Daddy has Dino vacating the front of the door. Phew! Now Gordo can go outside like he wanted to. Except he doesn’t seem to want to anymore?! Ah well, who can tell with pups! Do give this a like and share it around!
Traveling to the Galapagos Islands
Adorable Bulldog loves to be hugged and kissed.
Gordo will cry until he gets what he wants.
Gordo the Bulldog encounters a mass of seaweed during his day at the beach. Naturally, he tries to determine whether or not it will be a tasty snack.

Gordo & Dino don’t mind sharing their bed with Grandpa. Just One rule: No drooling!
Bulldog Gordo does not want to move over for Dino, the Golden Retriever, while laying on the couch. Tension levels rise in this home one particular morning and not even grandma’s intervention would help Dino get a piece of the couch because Gordo wants to enjoy the couch all to himself.
Dino, the Golden Retriever, is not sure what to think of the squeaky chicken.
It’s morning and Gordo wants to get his breakfast on.
Dino has not interest whatsoever to move over and let Gordo get by. Now it’s time for Grandma to step in and resolve this situation before it gets out of hand (or paw in this case…LOL!!!).
Stay tuned to see how this saga ends.
Who says size matters?
Just a fun day hanging out at the Ranch.
Ambergris Caye, Belize is a great place to spot nurse sharks as well as other marine life. We were able to observe fish and nurse sharks in the most stunning blue waters of Central America.
Although we were in close proximity with the sharks and other fish, we never attempted to touch or interact with them directly.
This was filmed during a road trip going North on US Highway 395.
Gordo is a very experienced traveler and it has always been fun to take him along with us wherever we go.
We needed to catch baitfish for our day of fishing. The solution: catching sardines using a throw net.
We scanned the area looking for pelicans diving into the water. This is where we knew we would find schools of sardines. We drift in close enough not to spook them and threw the net in time to catch enough before they swim away.
My dogs playing in our backyard
Gordo’s BFF’s arrived on an unannounced visit to say goodbye because he is leaving on a trip.
Fly Fishing during a light rain and seeing the mist rise from the water while catching trout was amazing.
It has been raining here for the last week and Gordo & Dino have been itching to get out of the house before winter starts.
They fattened up on “Thanksgiving treats” to build up their winter coats before the snow begins to fall.
We snorkeled late afternoon on the Kona Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii with manta rays. People have said that snorkeling with manta rays could be dangerous but manta rays don’t have stingers like sting rays or eagle rays. But keep in mind, they are still wild animals and need to be treated with respect.
