DOGS AND GARDENS




I am sure you are thinking what is gonna happen with this post right?

Well I love both....does that count?

First up is the question I know all of you have asked yourself and that is "what the heck does Sherry do with her dogs when she goes out of town?"

Well I'm happy you asked that question because I would like to share with you my solution.

Dog Days Atlanta has been around since 1999 and gets voted every year as the best daycare/boarding facility in Atlanta.



I have known Lee and John [the owners] since the beginning and they are a wonderful couple...plus they love dogs!

They have daycare, boarding, grooming, and webcam so you can watch your babies all day if you want.

Recently they have added Serenbe Adventures to the menu.

Yup....they take your dogs down to Serenbe for a field trip!

Just look at these happy dogs.
I pulled some great images from their Instagram.
Is this a happy face or what?
Swimming....
Hiking....

Seriously isn't this the coolest thing?  If you are interested just give them a call today 404 266 8668. [They do it Mon-Fri].

Gardens....well not the grow your food kind.

I was out in the yard with my dogs the other morning and took a few shots of a fading flower.


Amazing that it can go from white to this beautiful shade of pink.

Geez....moochie girl is getting a lot of press this week.

I put this picture a while back on Instagram and thanks to Loi I know know what to call this thing other than a sundial! Amillary.

Mine is a little rusted now.
And the arrow fell off a while ago.....but I still have it.


 Picked it up at Scott's over 15 years ago.

I decided to google them to see some more.

My advice is get yourself one.

Well...just a little diversion from interiors today:)


Have a day to shout about.

It is always comforting to know your dogs are being well cared for when gone. We have a company that sends a sitter to the house. Works great as our littlest one HATES being away from home and all her toys. #spoiled rotten. Your yard is beautiful.

I'm glad you spoil your dogs as bad as we do Blakely boo. She goes to Camp Bow Wow near us and looooves it. I love watching her play on the web cam!

Would love, love an AMILLARY!
What would we do without Loi?

I've always wanted an armillary but every one I find is way too expensive. Yours is really unique with the zodiac symbols around the base!

That is every dogs dream. That, and then a good long nap.

i love hearing more about the dogs and their lives. yay!

Kat said...

I kinda DIYed one of those orb thingies with two hanging basket halves. (Does that make sense?...eh, you can check it out if you want http://bit.ly/17HoFM5) Definitely not as cool as yours.

And can I stay at that dog camp place? It'd be a sweet vacay away from the kids. Sheesh...royal treatment!

Linda {Calling it Home} said...

I am all over great doggie day care. We have a place that Buster loves going to. I love that sun dial thing.

The enchanted home said...

Wow its good to be a dog huh! Love it...they deserve all the attention and love we can lavish on them, being the amazing companions they are.

Love the idea of armillary!

Testing.....OK we figured it out so please pass the word on to others like me who feel extremely stupid right now. I was logged out on my Google account (when I am using Firefox) Long story but I can't use Explorer for commenting on blogs because I have two emails with Google. Anyway, hope this will help others who may have been getting a blank page when trying to post a comment!!! And again as always this post made me laugh and smile so big this morning!

What a cool place to take your dog. I used to really hate to board my Scotties when traveling...this would have been perfect and so fun for them!

I WOULD like to get an armillary

Wow that day care goes above and beyond! Everyday is dog camp at my house and our animals seem to run the show. I'm the one that needs to go away to camp! Love your pooches and your yard pics. Enjoy the weekend,

This post is adorable. Doggie daycare is a big and profitable business in LA. :)

Oh my gosh...dog heaven. We are having fun/going crazy with our new puppy. So much energy...and chewing on things but my husband is absolutely crazy for him. Dogs are the best. I'm warming up to cats as I have three clients right now with them and we have to design around them. Have a peaceful Sunday.

Carrie @ Hazardous Design said...

It really takes the stress out of traveling when you know your dogs are happy in your absence. Plus, the webcam is so cool!.

Sevaa said...
