Who else have a beloved fur-baby, that you LOVE to pamper??
We have 2 dogs; Hercules and Argos. If you follow here on my blog or on my social media, no doubt our love for them is obvious.
Hercules is our tough-as-nails, 4.5 year old, Black Lab. He came from our Raw Milk Farmer Friends. Hercules is notoriously talkative and is rather complicated. He’s happy and energetic, but growls at everyone (while wagging his tail) making a horrible first impression.
Argos is our adorable, 18 month old, pit-mix. He is a rescue, born at a shelter to a malnourished mom and returned after being adopted once. When I found out that He and Hercules shared the same birthday, I instantly knew he was destined to be ours. I’m not joking when I say that he’s one of the cutest dogs EVER and his thin tail is a dangerous weapon when he’s excited.
We love our boys equally but in uniquely different ways. Argos is our lap dog, always looking for an opportunity to sneak in a few minutes of snuggle time. Hercules is our active outdoors fella who loves retrieving and the water.
When we pamper our pooches, we tailor it to fit their unique personalities.
Argos is needy on a daily basis. We pamper him with lots of stuffed toys and he sleeps with us in bed every night. Generally Argos is the dog who gets the most attention every day, but don’t worry we make it up to Hercules!
For the past 3 years, we’ve taken Hercules with us on our annual weekend trip to the Eastern Shore of Chesapeake Bay, where we spend time relaxing, eating blue crabs and floating in the bay. And with Hercules’ love of the water, we can’t possibly leave him home.
As always, we all had a great time! We can’t think of a better way to pamper big-brother Hercules than with a weekend spent with just us (no Argos) and lots of swimming!
It’s funny how our typically independent Hercules becomes affectionate and cuddly on our trip. He honestly seems to appreciate our time alone with him. And we are glad to do it!
Yes, Hercules even has his own dog-float and spends HOURS floating with us in the bay. He keeps his toy close by, though. It’s so cute, he just flings it off the raft at us when he’s ready for us to throw it – then he DIVES off after it!
Don’t worry about Argos – He got to spend the weekend with one of his favorite people, his Aunt-Caitlyn. And I bought him home a super-cute and totally over-priced, peacock stuffed toy!

Did you know that Hercules is also an aspiring dog-model?? He’s been working really hard perfecting the perfect poses and finding his ‘good side.’
Ok I joking about the modeling part, but you gotta admit he’s a pretty handsome dude and he’s gotten so good at resisting temptation to pose for the camera. But if you are looking for a black lab dog model, he could use a few extra bucks so keep him mind….
Mean while, little brother Argos is just FINALLY learning how to pose for the camera.
Well, his pose is a little more of that gaze off into the distance kinda pose but cute none the less.
Argos literally couldn’t take it. He wanted to eat these treats so badly, his only defense was to completely ignore them.
You can’t blame him when it comes to delicious treats like these Milk-Bone Farmer’s Medley Dog Treats, right?!?!
