A long time ago, wolves figured out that if they hung out with man and did things for him, that man would give him food.  Back then, it seemed like a no brainer. The dogs worked hard.  It made them feel good.  And they could come and go as they pleased, pretty much.  It remained like that for thousands of years. Then, man started living in crowded cities.  They put fences everywhere.  They built fences around fences.  Then the signs came.  The signs had pictures of dogs with lines through them.  There were big open fields in every neighborhood, but the dogs were not allowed.  The dogs could only leave their tiny, fenced "yards" if they were attached to their humans. The humans didn't make the dogs work anymore.  The dogs weren't allowed to greet each other anymore.  The humans couldn't understand why the dogs rebelled.

Then Aaron said, "Enough is Enough."  He understood the dogs' frustration.  He created A Dog's Life to help as many dogs as he could.  And this is what happened...

There is a fence.  It is pretty big, though.  Anyway, we're outside of it.  Let's see where this path goes, Buddy !  Click on Buddy's name below to see our Arroyo adventure!

There's no way I'm gonna miss out on the fun with Angus and Roxy !

Rusty, Sunny, and the newest member of their family, Lilly.  Rusty runs her first mile at 22mph.  After that she cruises at about 15-17mph and just runs and runs.

Cassie challenges Rusty as the fastest of our dogs. Stay tuned!

Dogs like Sadie are still walking when I'm running at a good pace.

It looks as though Ringo is bringing the ball to me.  He's not !

Even though I like to zig-zag all over, Aaron showed me how to run along side his bike so I could explore far away places like the community center!  Don't forget to click on my name to see more pics of me running!

I like to bounce when I run so that everyone points out how cute I am.

When we're not sniffing around on a potty-break, we practice flying.

Kasey and Marley show us that in addition to sniffing everything in sight, Beagles love to run !

Dillon will, quite literally, retrieve the ball until he drops dead.  Modock (top right), on the other hand, will keep sniffing 'til he hits the Atlantic Ocean.

Sierra explains, "No, really Aaron, those 15 mph signs are just for the cars, not for dogs and bikes."

"I'm sure glad my mom found A Dog's Life instead of some boring dog walker," Sabrina's thinking.
