Zendoggie Meditation - Park - park - park

You know - My Mom loves the park and she has been a bit wary about going there because of all the ticks and reports of Lyme Disease in our area but we noticed yesterday that they have cut all the long grass down along the paths. Mom says she feels safer taking us there again - although she still checks us all over for nasty critters when we get home.

So after getting up this morning I decided to sit next to Mom while she was making 'something' at her crafty table and practice my Zendoggie Meditation. Now all meditation requires a chant word to help the mind relax........ and so I began chanting my chant PARK PARK PARK PARK PARK PARK.

All of a sudden Mom says - okay - let's go to the park boys and just like that - off we went. Yes every doggie telepathic chanting WORKS - just don't let on to the peeps okay.  Oh - on returning home I decided to do a little more Zendoggie Meditation - with a different chant word - COOKIE COOKIE COOKIE COOKIE COOKIE and darn if it didn't work AGAIN!

We went off the beaten path a bit today mainly because there was LOTS of shrunken humans at the park and they are so noisy with their screaming and yelling and running around. Personally I think they should be on leashes and not us furbabies!  We decided to head off to one of Mom's favorite spots in the park, it is kind of hidden and no-one but us ever seems to go there. The best part - this little arbor is covered with honeysuckle and mom was in sniffy heaven!

Now I have my boots I am able to walk a bit further then I was  previously doing. Mom has been slowly adding some distance each walk to see how my foot copes and it is doing great. We are still happy to get back to MY car though cause we know there is always a nice bowl of water waiting for us when we do.


  1. We've had lots of ticks too. Ugh, I had those things.

  2. Good job getting your mom in parkzen mode!

  3. Glad they have cut the grass and you can now go back to having a lark in the park. Have a terrific Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. Shrunken humans on leashes hahaha! There's a great all natural dog shampoo by Bobbi Panter called Charlie Dog Flea & Tick shampoo. It kills & repells ticks naturally. It works great! Let me know if you are interested in trying it and maybe doing a review! Love Dolly


  7. Those chants obviously work. Mom must have really appreciated your help

  8. LOVE the chanting idea! We are going to see if it will work on our mom too!

  9. jeeze why are the ticks so bad this year?

  10. I gots to remember that trick guys....park, park, park...cookie, cookie, cookie...darn nothin'!
    I totally agree with you that the shrunken humans should be on leashes and NOT us furkids!!! Sounds like it should be a write in campaign or something! BOL

  11. We totally agree with you about those ankle biters. They should be on a lead.

    We try mental telepathy but SHE's too dense. Takes her a long time to get the message.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  12. Your powers of suggestion are so strong Reilly! I am impressed at how you can influence your mom!

  13. We're happy to hear that you're getting more distance in little by little, Reilly!
    Our mom would have been in honeysuckle sniffy heaven too!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  14. We don't get to go to the park very often because it would be too hard for Mom to take four of us. She usually takes the little bipeds or shrunken humans as you call them. She does make them behave, no screaming allowed:)

    But we try to mind meld Mom by chanting walk, walk, walk, walk. And it usually works. We are going to try the cookie one next.

  15. your car looks a lot like Mom's! Mom has a Honda Fit
    Barks and licks and love,

  16. You are really good at the suggestion stuff Reilly! Katie tries it too but it doesn't work if the human knows about far no go. I've been hearing about ticks up here too, so have started looking on Katie when we get home, but so far nothing on her.

  17. WOW!! Thats great. Just keep chanting whatever you want!! ☺

  19. You guys have trained your mom so well! Good job, boys!

    It has been either too hot or it rains too much here. Life is so boring as I've to stay at home most of the time.
