PHOTOS: Playing with pups at Paws in the Park in Orlando

I've been away, and I've let the blog go.

You see, back in May I was diagnosed with bulging discs in my lower back. After several months of physical therapy I was starting to feel better.

Then just after New Year's the pain flared up again. I was very miserable, and it took weeks to feel better. Then I got sick.

Between that and regular life it's been tough to get back to doing this. But I want to get back to it.

So I'm making a late New Year's resolution: from now on, three posts a week! It's a promise. And I also promise to get back to doing what I started this blog for: to tell stories about my crazy dogs.

This past weekend Lulu and I went to Paws in the Park in Orlando! The annual event benefits Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando (where we adopted Lulu all those years ago!).

Pet Alliance is an animal shelter, but it's also an organization that tries to help pet lovers in the community so that people have happy, responsible relationships with pets.

Take a look at some pics of our adventure.

And by the way, we are trying to get Florida Beagle lovers together for meetups. We have a group on Facebook to talk about our beagles and find local beagle friends. We hope to eventually start a Beaglefest in Orlando! Join us now.

Lots and lots of dogs around Lake Eola.

New beagle friends! Look at the puppy!

Will someone get this walking carpet out of my way?

A pink poodle! Fear not, it's pet-safe paint from the groomer.

Another new beagle friend!

Bassets! They come to the park all the time, and this is their usual stop.

Baby dalmatian!

Star Wars cookies! I had to buy!

Lulu visits the Kissing Booth! Pet Alliance let me take these pics for a donation. Great for Valentine's Day.

And finally, a visit with Pluto! Lulu doesn't get why he's such a big deal.

Tired puppy.


  1. Looks like a lot of fun. Our similar event is nothing as nice as this one. We don't even go anymore.

  2. What fun and look at all that beautiful sunshine!

  3. Hope you're feeling better each and every new day - happy to see you're back!

  4. That looks like a wonderful day! And congratulations on your return to the blog-verse. I look forward to more posts!

  7. The "walking carpet" part is hilarious! I laughed so hard when I read it. And Lulu looks adorable! I used to stop by a certain pet shop where I find this really cute-looking Beagle. He doesn't look as cheerful as Lulu is because he was kept alone inside a cage. Good thing he got adopted a few weeks later.

    Looking forward to more posts!

  8. Wonderful photos! I'm sorry for your health issues. I can relate. :-/ I'm recovering from another surgery. Meh. I hope to see you at Global! Pics together this time!
