It snowed.


“Ahhhh, a fresh snowfall on an empty field.  So calm.  So pristine.   It just makes you want to contemplate new beginnings, starting fresh.  So perfect”

Let’s mess it up!

You betcha!



Not bad for a start! I think it needs a digging spot over there though.


Maybe some more swirls?


“That looks pretty good!  Let’s drag our cool tug ball around some to add depth.”


We messed it up good, didn’t we Flynn?

“Yeah we did”.

It’s beautiful.



I’m a genius.

I totally invented the bestest game ever today while we were at the field! We were playing fetch and Savannah was throwing the ball for me ’cause I’m a better retriever than Flynn ’cause he’s broken or something.


Well anyway, we was playing fetch and Savannah put the Chuck-it thrower down and Flynn picked it up and started running around with it. So I had an amazing idea and grabbed the end by the ball and started pulling and PRESTO! new game – Tug of Chuck-it!

It was great.  We tugged and tugged and then we both were running around the field holding the chucker and Savannah was chasing us.  I totally won though. High Score.







It’s my Burp Day!


“That’s gross.  You’re a girl.  Why did you do that?”

Because it’s my burp day.  I heard Mom say so.

“You’re such a dork.  Firefly, it’s your BIRTHDAY, not burp day.  Remember, I had mine last month.  We’re three years old now.”

Oh, that makes more sense!  Hey Flynn! Guess what?! Today’s my birthday!


Mom got me a new necklace for my birthday and your mom said she was gonna get me some special birthday cookies that I could share with you.  And you just know they’re gonna take us to the field, it just wouldn’t be an awesome birthday without getting to run and run and run and run.

“She got you a new leash and collar, not a necklace.  And yes, I heard your mom say we were going to get to run.”

It goes around my neck doesn’t it?  Therefore, necklace.  And it’s special, got my name on it and everything.  Mom even had the lady match the writing from that t.v. show my Mom says I’m kinda named after.

“I thought you were named for a bug?”

That too.  I’m named Firefly because I’m bright and shiny and flit from place to place, because the last fox terrier Ma had was called Cricket, and because there’s a show about space cowboys that Mom says I have bits and pieces of in me.  I think my name is the bestest.

“It definitely fits you.”

C’mon, we gots birthday stuff to do! *BURP* S’cuse me.

“Happy Birthday Firefly. Goofball.”

“I can’t believe you broke your hat.”

“I CAN’T believe you actually wore it willingly.”


Happy Golden Day!


HEY FLYNN! GUESS WHAT? It’s National Golden Retriever Day!  Did you know you got your own day?  It’s totally one of the best days ever.  I love Goldens, don’t you?  Well I mean of course you do, you are one after all.  Hey, remember that time your Mom took you to retriever camp?  And I was gonna dress up as a golden puppy and hide in your suitcase?  I don’t know why the humans didn’t think that would have been a good idea.  THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN SO MANY GOLDENS TO PLAY WITH!!

“It was called Goldstock, not retriever camp.  It was really fun!  There were a lot of goldens to play with, and there was a big lake with a dock to jump off of and my mom and I took a test that showed that I was a good citizen and…”


“Yes I did. Don’t interrupt.”

I still think I should have gone with you.

“But you aren’t a golden retriever.”

So?  I love goldens.  They run and play and bark and swim and retrieve.  Well, most of them do.  Your Mom says I retrieve better than you do. Are you broken?

“I choose to ignore that question.”

Do you remember the time we went swimming and those two goldens and their people joined us?  We had fun with them, didn’t we? That was really cool that we got to meet them.  I love playing with goldens.  But you know what Flynn?


You’re my favorite. Happy Golden Day!



Hi! *boing* Hi! *boing* Hi! *boing* HI, I’m Firefly! *boing*

“Would you stand still for two seconds?”

But I’m excited to meet everybody!

“You’re excited about everything”

That’s true. I love things! ALL THE THINGS!! Squirrels, and food, and swimming, and tuggy, and balls, and…

“This is what I meant. Sit! Stay! For two minutes. I’ll do the introductions”. 

“Welcome friend.  My name is Flynn, and my bouncy little spaz of a friend over there is Firefly.  We started this blog with the help of our humans to tell you about our adventures.  Oh, how we love to adventure!”

ARE YOU DONE YET?! I want to tell them a story!

“Chill. I need to tell them a little about us first and then you can tell them all the stories you want.”


“As I was saying. My name is Flynn.  I am a 3 year old Golden Retriever. My human is Savannah.  She takes all the awesome pictures you’ll see on here.  The impatient ball of fur over there is Firefly.  She’s a 3 year old Smooth Fox Terrier. I’m the older of the two of us. Only by three weeks! – You’re not helping your cause Fly. Firefly’s human is Julianne.  She’s the one who runs the blog.  Some other things you need to know about us?  I’m an only dog.  I do live with a kitty cat named Josie.  Firefly has lots of brothers and sisters.  Sometimes they’ll come on our adventures too. She also has a kitty at her house. Our humans work together at a doggy day care and training center.  They’re also very good friends, just like me and Firefly.  They’re also very different from each other just like me and Firefly. Firefly and I and Firefly’s siblings all belong to Dog Scouts.  Sometimes other dogs from our troop come on our adventures. You can learn more about all of us on the About page.  If I don’t let the terrier talk soon she might explode.”

FINALLY!  That’s boring stuff.  I wanna get to the adventures!  As I was saying before Mr. Serious interrupted me, I’m Firefly and this is my adventure blog!  My human said that I could come on here and tell everybody about all the totally cool and awesome stuff that I get to do with my best bud Flynn and my brothers and sisters.  Flynn said he’d help me out because I have a tendency to exaggerate, whatever that means.  Mom says it means I have a good imagination. I say it means I tell awesome stories! SO, I hope you’ll stick around and be our new friend and let me tell you awesome stories! Wanna play fetch?
