La Brea Tar Pits

If you live in the Mid-Wilshire, West Los Angeles, or West Hollywood area and you are looking for a nice place to hang out with your dog on a Saturday morning to have a picnic or maybe just a good romp in the grass, look no further than The La Brea Tar Pits. The La Brea Tar Pits are adjacent to the LACMA in Mid-Wilshire and its a big park. You can walk your dog through the park, play fetch or people watch. It’s by far my favorite place to with Argos. I am not a big fan of dog parks so this is a good compromise. On this particular Sunday, a little girl came up to us when she saw Argos playing fetch and she joined in. That little girl tired Argos out like I’ve never seen him before.

If you live in the area, give it a go. It’s free and you don’t need a dog.

This is what happiness looks like.

Dog Teeth Brushing

This is our nightly teeth brushing routine. Ellie is 9 months old and is now able to tolerate teeth brushing and its all because she gets a treat right after she is done. Not only does she sit still long enough for me to do it, she gets excited in anticipation.

I began brushing her teeth about two months ago when the last of her baby teeth came out. I use an Oral-B baby toothbrush (the bristles are soft and the head is small) and Virbac C.E.T. Enzymatic Toothpaste in Poultry Flavor.   She hated the process and would scurry away when I called her into the bathroom with me. Two months later, she follows me  into the bathroom and waits for me to begin.
