Hi, friends! How’s your day going so far?
Murphy and I just got back from a lovely trip to the dog park. It was such a beautiful morning, I just had to take him. I knew he’d appreciate running around and stretching his little pug legs—and, of course, sniffing and peeing on all sorts of new things, so we went for a ride in the car to the park.
Eventually, Murphy took a short break from exploring to cool off his butt in the ocean. He just hates having a hot butt. #pugpriorities
We walked along the main path of the park to the water, so we switched it up and took an “adventure walk” in the woods on the way back.
I guess the “adventure” part of the walk made Murphy really excited because he spazzed out in the middle of it and ran around like a freak—growling, barking, and elephant butt-ing, even UP a hill. Mal and I affectionately refer to this pug freak-out session as “screw loose,” as in a screw gets loose in Murphy’s brain and temporarily malfunctions. Murphy even gets these crazy, googly eyes when it happens. It’s ridiculous.
I hope this video makes you laugh! It will definitely show you how weird my dog is! Haha!

Sure, it’s easy to buy a bag of pre-made trail mix at the grocery store, but it’s a whole lot more fun to make it yourself because you can select exactly what goes into it. This means there’s no need to eat around boring peanuts or those weird sesame sticks. You can enjoy all of your favorites in a customized trail mix!
Added bonus: You’ll always have a healthy snack on hand. Just be sure the majority of your ingredients aren’t loaded with sugar and covered in salt. Aim for a ratio in your trail mix that is three parts healthy ingredients to one part fun stuff.
