Stanford Fun and Friday Links

Hey look at me, I'm a college student! Hehehe, well not yet, I still have to pass advanced obedience! 

While grandma was at her doctor's appointment, Domeek and I went exploring Stanford University's trails. We had no clue there was so much to see and do at a school! It was pretty amazing! There were tons and tons of trees to sniff...

A garden made entirely out of cactus (those were a bit more painful to get a good sniff in)

And a huge stone building that Domeek said was called a mausoleum. I didn't like that building too much, there were two giant troll sphinxes guarding it and a giant monster waiting for me on the side!

Whoa, I did my best to show how big I was by growling and barking at them...but I'm amazed I made it out alive! Phew! I'll be on my guard next time!

I had a great time though!

Friday Links:
Since today is Friday, I thought I would pass along some interesting news, events, and ideas that were going around the world wide web this week!
  • Petco just released a video about emergencies preparedness and pets, but if you want more ideas check out the ASPCA
  • Michigan is on its way to becoming the very first No-Kill state in the country, so far 11 communities are on board!
  • The SF/ACC is hosting the pre-event for AT&T's Dog Days at the Ballpark this Saturday between 11am and 2pm...lots of activities, food, and caffeine! I'm going to be there too!
  • Via BlogPaws, "How user-friendly is your blog?" I found myself agreeing with pretty much everything the author said, then I went and fiddled with my blog! 
  • Curry Chicken Meatloaf? Um, yes, don't mind if I do! :-) Need some recipe inspiration for your human, then look no further! 
  • This illustration, by one of my favorite artists, Lili Chin, is hilarious...Domeek says that they all are true! 
  • Here's a link to a ton of pet related Friday Freebies going on in the blog world...including: a three month membership to (totally entered this one), a custom cartoon of you by, and Petco puppy backpacks! 
  • Lots of you already get them in the mail, but Groupon is doing an almost 50% off deal for Barkbox! Domeek just signed me up! Yeah!

Have a great Friday everyone!!
