Dog Walking: Webbed Dog and Before

Webbed Dog is my first dog walking business, but it’s far from my first dog walking. Here’s some of my doggy history.

When at graduate school at UMass Amherst, bike rides used to include a count of dogs encountered. A dog/mile ratio greater than one was one benchmark for a good ride.

When I lived and taught in Boston, I was great friends with a Rottweiler. I often walked him, and he stayed with me when his human was away.

When in Bethesda, Maryland, I did some independent dog walking.

Since moving to Barrington, Rhode Island, I’ve done some dog walking through Wag! I feel positive about Wag! But it’s not for me as a dog walker, and it wouldn’t be for me as a dog parent.

My love for dogs has only increased since Mochi joined the family. I look forward to getting to know your dog(s)!

What’s the site icon? It’s that little image in your browser tab for this site.

How does it differ from the site logo? The site logo is the image at the top right of every post and page of this site.

The above answers are short, simple, and specific. If you want more detail, I recommend RockPaperSimple’s account of the difference between icon and logo.

For this site, I’m challenged by the site logo decision, and confident in my site icon decision.

Mochi: The Homecoming, and Before

We start our story in the summer of 2018. We decided that it was time to add a dog to our family, and that a Portuguese Water Dog puppy would be the best fit.

With some searching and some luck, I found that Karma Portuguese Water Dogs had a litter on the way, one of which was not yet promised to a family. We visited Anat at Karma in North Providence and signed up for one of the nine puppies in the litter.

The puppies were born on August 22, 2018. We were able to visit the adorable little bundles of fur and fun a couple of times, and to watch them on a video feed that Anat set up. Each puppy had a soft collar, and was identified by the color of that collar.

We got “Blue Girl”. Here’s the photo that Anat sent us when she texted us the news.
