Apache here!  Colby said he’s opening his Puppy In Training blog up to guest blogging so Stetson, Linus and I decided that we want our own section especially since we heard some of our puppy pals have an entire blog to themselves!

Our pal Snoopy told us about Monday Mischief and since we like getting into mischief on the weekends we decided to join the party!

March of Dimes And Puppies In Training!

That's Me! Apache! Hanging Out At the March of Dimes

Colby told me that there’s an event called March of Dimes March For Babies, where generous people help raise money that helps support programs in their community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. And it funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies.

I immediately said we should help support this cause and volunteer at the Guide Dogs of America booth…plus with all the kids I was sure to sneak a lot of free pets. 🙂

There was a lot of activity going on at the March of Dimes, but I didn’t mind because just like I thought a bunch of kids wanted to pet me and people thought I was some kind of celebrity because everyone wanted to take a picture with me…or maybe it’s just my rugged good looks 🙂

Linus, Stetson, and Apache write a guest post every Monday called “Monday Mischief“, where they talk about their mischief, antics, and adventures from the past weekend.

What does your dog(s) do on the weekend?

  1. Hello Colby!

    It’s a good thing you’re doing. I am jealous of the opportunities you have to help your community. We hardly have those in our city which is why I have to go somewhere else to become a volunteer.

    Anyway, it’s nice meeting you. I like Apache’s tongue… it has a little dot.

    By the way, do you have an article on excessive barking. One of my dogs can make this piercing barking sound that drives the neighbors crazy since he does it at night or before eating (it’s as if he’s being left to starve when in actuality he isn’t able to eat up everything in his bowl).

    Huggies and Cheese,


    1. Hi Haopee,

      Thanks! That’s great that you put in the time and effort to volunteer even though you don’t have the opportunities in your city. We put together a some posts a few years ago. Hopefully that helps.

      Take care,

  2. Oh Alfie, you don’t look that mischievous to me, looks like your being a very good dog! Looks like you had a good time at the fundraiser! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    1. @KSO, I think you mixed me up with another dog…my name is Apahce! (I know there’s a few Alfie’s in this blog hop). I try to be very good that’s how you get the most attention from the kids! Thanks for visiting and leaving me a comment!

  3. Hi Y’all,

    Wanted to hop by and say hello! How are y’all doin’? You are really a handsome dude, Apache!

    Hope y’all had a great weekend! Have a wonderful week!

    Y’all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

    1. Hi Hawk aka BrownDog!

      Thanks! My dad says it’s because of his grooming skills, but I think it’s my natural good looks 🙂

      Take care,

    1. @Jen, we love helping out at all of these different events. My dad says it’s good for me to visit large crowds and it’s for a good cause…and like you said my favorite is getting tons of love and pets 🙂

  4. Hi Apache,

    It’s great to meet you buddy – and to see you guys are getting your own little spot on puppy in training – woohoo!!

    I’m not surprised they couldn’t resist saying hello to you at the March of Dimes – you’re cool!! 🙂

    I know all of you are super well trained, but do you still find some time for maybe just a little bit of Mischief? Tee Hee

    Wags to all,

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

    1. Hi Snoopy,

      When I become a guide dog like my brother Dublin people aren’t allowed to pet me while I’m out working in public. So getting all of this attention and pets from the kids is my little bit of mischief for the weekend.

      Thanks for stopping by!


  5. Hi Apache! I don’t see ANYONE could resist a lovable golden (and really, is there any other kind?) Love your Treat Spot – Zachary has one just like it. 🙂

    1. @Christine, thanks for stopping by. I love helping great charitable organizations like the March of Dimes…plus I can’t resist the free pets from all the wonderful children!

  6. Apache, what a great idea. You’re not only helping people, you’re getting lots of loves. I look for loves every time I go out on my trails, but you found a place with lots of people to give you loves. The loves from cute girls are the best.

    1. Yes, the March of Dimes Race for Babies was a great place to get lots of love from all the children. Everyone wanted to take a picture with me! I had a wonderful day!
