Willie the Labradoodle and Mr. Darcy at the Garden at the Latvian Embassy

Real Estate Agent with RLAH Real Estate AB95346

Since Willie the hyperactive-Labrodoodle-puppy joined my household a couple of years ago, I have been trying to think up ways to wear him out.  The idea is to find some form of exercise that will wear him out so he won't have the energy to chew up my favorite shoes.

Now, my friend and neighbor, Beth, has a new addition to her household- an energetic standard poodle puppy named Mr. Darcy - the heartthrob of all of my friends who are Pride and Prejudice fans.

So today, we took them to the yard of the building that served for years at the Latvian Mission, then the Latvian Embassy when they became a real country.  Recently they moved out into fancier digs. 

So we brought Mr. Willie and Mr. Darcy there for an hour or so of heavy physical exercise.  

Willie Chased Mr. Darcy.

Then, Mr. Darcy chased Willie.

They chased each other around like lunatics and then Mr. Darcy went home and took a very long nap.  Mr. Willie came home and ran around the house. 

Is he too tired to chew my shoes?  He's eying a pair right now that I'd better scoop up off the floor.  Right now they are dog bait!

So now I'm wondering what the Latvians are going to do with ths piece of property that is pretty vacant and forlorn looking down the street from me!  Maybe Willie and I should make a few phone calls!  It's time that dog started to earn his dog chow!

Doggone!  Looks like fun,  dogs are a nice pet to have but just like any other animal they have their challenges.

I think it's really cool how you uploaded the pictures to the blog.  Nice touch.  Your dogs look like they're having a whole lot of fun.  Have you watched the Dog Whisperer with Ceaser.  I'm not sure what channel it comes on, but Ceaser is a world famous Dog Trainer.  He often uses a tread mill to help tire out dogs or to help provide them with some useful exercise. You may want to give it a try and especially when the weather is crummy outside and you have to keep Mr. Willie and Mr. Darcy indoors.

Patricia, The shots are adorable--so are those dogs!  I am NEVER able to wear my dogs out--they don't like shoes as much as socks--and WIRES.  I almost lost my internet not long ago :)

Mr. Willie sounds like some children who are never tired.  I had one who did not know what sleep meant.  Yes, put Mr. Willie to work and maybe the two of you can get that property listed and sold.   Have a great weekend.

The garden and roses look wonderful -- would love to see a photo of the forlorn embassy.  Hope you'll let us know what happens to the property!
