A Typical Daily Schedule

At just thirteen weeks old I have already trained my family quite well.  Their world revolves around mine.  Want proof??  Take a look at my daily schedule.  (Mom even has alarms set on her cell phone to remind her of each time!!)
6:30 A.M. - I wake Mom up so she can take me to potty.  We walk, I do my "duty", and it's time for breakfast.

6:45 A.M. - Mom feeds me in the laundry room.  She's taught me to sit and wait until she says "ok" before I can eat.

8:00 A.M. - Taken out to potty again.

8:15 A.M. - PLAY TIME!!

10:00 A.M. - Nap time.

11:00 A.M. - Time to go potty again.

11:15 A.M. - Training/play time.

1:30 P.M. - I go outside to potty again and this time get to play with the two legged kids too. 

3:30 P.M. - S-U-P-P-E-R    T-I-M-E
My big sister, Dacey and me.

4:00 P.M. - Another potty break.

5:00 P.M. - A walk around town with the whole family (all six people and all six dogs).  Mom says this part of day is good for bonding.

6:00 P.M. - A well deserved nap!

7:30 P.M. - Go potty.

7:45 P.M. - Back inside to play.

10:00 P.M. - Outside to potty one last time.

10:15 P.M. - Go to crate and go to sleep.  Nite, nite, y'all. 


  1. Sounds like a busy schedule you have!

  2. You're all so well trained! Our lives revolve around the puppy schedule too - she has us up at 5am for the first potty! Ughghghg :) Love that you all take a long walk together every night!

  3. You need your own organizer to keep track of things - what a busy day you have for such a little guy

  4. We are all tired just reading your busy schedule. We would love to go for a walk with all of you - that would make for a puppy parade.

  5. I would like to reserve a room for my 3 4-legged adults to stay at the Boondocks' Boot Camp. Do you have an opening for Memorial Day Weekend? That would be swell!!!

  6. You've definitely trained them very well. They are very obedient too to keep up with their routine everyday. Good job, Boon! I wish my family were as well trained as yours. They tend to wake whenever they feel like it. And our bladders are bursting waiting for them to get up from bed! But we've been "trained" to hold our pee pee & doo doo till they bring us out.

  7. I had a really strict schedule like that when I was your age. But mommy has been able to relax a bit now that I am older. After all, I will be 6-months tomorrow!

    Puppy kisses,

  8. Thats a great sounding schedule!


  9. WOW!!! How does she keep up with all of ya'll??? You rock!!!

  10. Well done! You sure got them trained.

  11. Hi Y'all,

    What a busy schedule your Human has! I still keep mine pretty busy too, 'cause I like to do stuff outside and then come in and nap in the cool.

    My Human makes me sit in my crate until my food is ready and she puts it down. I have to look at her until she gives me the go ahead. It must be a human thing, that sit and wait. They sit and say prayers before they eat but I don't know about prayers.

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  12. Wow! What a busy schedule. Pups thrive on routine. Such a sweet sweet pup...and smart too! : )

  13. What a busy schedule! You have your people very well trained! The walk with the whole family sounds great!

Things to Know Before Owning a Golden Retriever:

Our oldest Golden Retriever will be six on April 1st. We got Scarlet when she was just six weeks old and quickly fell in love with her. Within another six weeks, we had our second Golden, Rhett. (Rhett passed away two years ago.) It has been five (almost six) years since we have had adolescent Golden Retrievers in our home. While I have often joked about the “first terrible two years” of a Golden Retriever’s life, I had truly forgotten just how trying a Golden puppy can be - that is until now. Cosmo will be one year old in a matter of weeks, and Rose Bud is six months old. Now all of the reasons we’d joked for so long over how hard it was to survive their puppy hood have come back to me. We’re learning again - the hard way.

With that in mind, I would like to share some tips on owning a Golden. Retriever.

Here are a few things you need to know:

1. You do not own a Golden Retriever. The more accurate description is that they own YOU.
2. Golden Retrievers will chew. If you do not provide the…


So it's been about 15 months since I blogged here.  Most days instead of in depth thoughts, I prefer to post pictures at .  It doesn't require as much brain activity.  But I chose to share this here because it was entirely too long to fit in a Facebook post.  (I do have have four kids after all.)

This was a lot of fun.  I interviewed each of my four kids separately so each answer was original and not "borrowed".  I gained some insight into my kids and learned a few things I need to work on.  And for some reason they all agree I'm obsessed with my dog.  What's up with that.

Here goes..  (Connor is 8, Isaac 12, Jaden 14, and Dacey is 16.)

MOM 1. What is something mom always says to you? Connor  – “You love me.” Isaac  – “God made you special and He and I love you very much.  Precious monkeys and all that jazz.” Jaden  – “If you keep doing that, you’re face will stick like that.” Dacey  – “Be who you are and say what you mean.  T…

Boon's Sunday Sermon #6 - Little Black Dog

Today we'd like to share a writing with you by one of our favorite authors: Elisabeth Elliot.  This piece is beautifully written and describes her thoughts on a dog's 'mortality'.  We hope it touches your heart as it has ours. 

Little Black Dog by Elisabeth Elliot
It is a late October morning of glorious sunshine in New Hampshire and I sit in an antique rocking chair by the window of an old house which was once a barn. The gray rocks on Mount Lafayette's broad summit are dusted with snow, and the sky is as blue as a sky can be. All that is still green today is the evergreens. Between them are the black line drawings of the thin leafless maples, wild cherries, aspens and birches. The feathery tamaracks are dark gold. Little yellow apples hang on one of the gnarled old trees of the orchard. I keep hoping a deer will come for them.

My friend Miriam and I drove up yesterday from Boston for a few days of quiet at my brother's place. Both of us brought a load of desk …
