I’m definitely considering starting a second account solely dedicated to photos of Neptune balancing stuff on her head 🤣
*
What’s on her head anyway?
That’s a @petreleaf CBD Capsule and you can order your pup some from their website with our special, limited time code, PAWCIFIC10 from now until January 2nd.
Got questions?
Drop them below and I’ll do my best to answer them!

And the battle of the century BEGINS!
Jk, no toy stands a chance against Neptune!
This @harrybarker_co toy was such a big hit she obsessed over it until it was completely gutted of stuffing then she paraded it around!
Neptune got so much joy out of this thing.
It just wouldn’t be an adventure without her!

Now that I’m a dog owner, it feels extremely odd when I hike or travel without them! I went on a little hike with a friend a few years ago that Neptune couldn’t join us on and it just wasn’t nearly as much fun.
I’ve grown to love watching the dogs explore and interact with their environment even more than I love the beautiful scenery.

The hardest part about adventuring is containing your excitement on the often lengthy car ride!

Neptune and Norma get so excited when we get off the freeway, they just know it means we must be getting close to our destination!
Once we arrive we leave them in the truck while we pack our stuff up and get ready to explore and I love looking at their cute little faces while the wait in the car. Sometimes their faces look just so unimpressed, it cracks me up! There’s just so much personality in these two
Happy #tongueouttuesday from Eleven!
This is the face of a dog that was definitely not caught digging in the snow to eat 💩

Dogs are gross. When I sit down and really think about the things they casually do it weirds me out that I let them lick my face and share me bed.
What nasty stuff does your dog do?

“Yes! Okay!”
Snapped the photo
Honestly, I like bloopers best!

Are you into perfectly posed shots of action and blooper shots instead? I’m still working on mastering my action shots but I’ve got plenty of bloopers in store for you!

Do the holidays stress you out?
Me too! That’s why I steal Neptune’s @petreleaf CBD Capsules for myself 🤣

Bugs.. Norma’s favorite toy 🦋
Why is it so cold?!? All I want to do is go backpacking with @zivathepibble and her human again 😭
So here’s a flashback to our first overnight backpacking trip! Neptune and I fell in love with the experience and I really want to start planning some trips for spring and summer!

If you backpack with your dog, what are some tips you have for a novice?
Life is all about balance

When you find something you really really like and you obsess over that one thing for a while and everything else just falls out of focus you really miss out on a lot.
I feel like when I first got into Instagram I just got totally hooked. It was amazing being able to connect with people who were crazy into their dogs just like me! Then it was amazing to get all this positive feedback on my photography. Then I got the opportunity to model for all these incredible shops. It just became a source of so much fun and happiness I got this laser focus on it and neglected some of my other interests.
Sometimes I just get so wrapped up in the fun I forget about paying attention to my other hobbies and it causes me to get to a point where I’m just burnt out!
This recently happened to me with my career.
I worked as a professional dog trainer at a dog daycare and did a host of other dog related tasks there while also fostering dogs outside of work, attending dog training classes with my own dogs and playing with my own dogs and I just got to a point (after 5yrs) where I just couldn’t do it anymore. I found myself unmotivated to train my own dogs which is the absolute last thing in the world that I want to lose interest in because it’s been my favorite hobby since I can remember! So, I changed careers.
I did it so I could save that passion from going completely extinct.
Circling back to Instagram, I’ve hugely stepped back and been way less active on here to preserve the joy I get from sharing our life and interacting with all of you!
I’m so far from mastering the art of balancing things in my life but practice makes perfect!
After all, Neptune couldn’t balance her @harrybarker_co biscuit the first... second... third... or even 4th try, but she learned each time and finally mastered the art of balance 😌
We can all learn so much from our canine companions!
