New bone tryouts, part 2

So mom has gotten me some more new bones to try out for my teefies. First up, the bully stick! It's soooo yummy!!  But just like the rawhide I get kinda possesive over it so mom has to hold it while I chow down so she can take it away when it gets too small for me to have.  But that's okay cause I make to most out of it while I can!!

And then if that wasn't enough, I got another surprise.  Mom went to the Christmas Fair & Expo this past weekend & brought me home something totally awesome from one of the pet booths... an antler!!

Mom says that it's a lot better for me than the nylabone's that I used to chew on. And I say... GIMME GIMME GIMME!! 

I love love love it!!

And now if you'll excuse me, I have an antler to get back to...

Christmas Card Exchange, Part 1

Guess what, I got my very own Christmas cards in the mail!!  They were actually addressed to me!!  About a week & a half ago I had mom sign me up for a Christmas Card Exchange that I heard about on Finn's blog, she's my new bloggerville friend.  It's so much fun, I'm having mom help me write holiday cards to a bunch of doggies & kitties who I hope to call friends one day!!

And so far I've gotten 3 cards... 3!!!  One is from The Royal Coonhounds, one is from Miley & Maggie, & one is from my very good friend Nola.  Make sure you clicky on their names & check out their blogs cause they are really cool!!  This is going to be so much fun:)

Mom hasn't gotten any Christmas cards yet so I said I would share mine with her, she even put them down low so I could see them every day. :) 

Make sure to check back for my next Card Exchange update!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I hope every one of my blogger friends & their families had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!  Below is a picture of where I spent most of my day... the perfect spot to watch mom cook my our dinner.

And she said that I was such a good boy all day that I even got my own special carrot bone... mmmmmmmmm...

And when dinner was ready, mom made me a special bowl w/ some kibble & turkey & green beans & even a little bitty dollop of mashed potatoes!!  It was so yummy that I gobbled it all up before mom could get a picture.  But here I am afterwards in my turkey coma.

Last but not least I would like to list a few things that I am thankful for this year:

1. my mom
2. my kibble
3. my snackies, treaties & bones
4. my toys
5. my blankies
6. my friends (2 & 4 legged)
7. my family
8. my home
9. my mom's job (how else would she buy my treaties)
10. all my new friends out in bloggerville, everyone I've met over that past year makes me smile & inspires me everyday to be a better doggy.

Gobble, Gobble :)

New bone tryouts

So since mom found out about my broken tooth, she has been on the hunt for a bone that won't hurt my teeth the way my nylabones do.

This week, rawhide... yum :)

The only bad thing, or so mom says, is that I get a little possesive over it when mom tries to take it away.  So I say, don't try to take it away.  But in the end, mom had to hold it while I chewed on it so I wouldn't get so growl-y when she put it up for the night.

Til next time Mr. Rawhide!!

The leaves they are a-changing

Today I took mom to the park to see all the pretty leaves changing colors.  We had a great time, there were all kinds of good stinkies to smell, and there were tons of squirrels & other doggies to bark at, too. 

And because mom was such a good sport & let me smell all that I could get my little nose on, I let her take a few pictures.  Some of them turned out okay, if I do say so myself...

I hope you take some time this weekend to get outside & enjoy all the sights & smells of autumn.

Doctor, Doctor

Awhile back mom found me a new vet's office & a new doctor. So yesterday she said we were gonna go pay them a "first time" visit, and you know what that means...

...yep, car ride!!  And I even wore my new dapper duds to impress the new doc, which of course, it totally did.  Dr. Yates was very nice to me & played with me & gave me some snackies & said I was a very handsome boy & they even took my picture.  There was a problem though, when mom had him look at my teefies to get the scoop on cleaning, he found a broken tooth all the way in the back.  And boo hoo, it has to come out. :(  Mom was surprised cause I never told her about it, but  Dr. Yates said that was probably cause I such a brave boy & didn't want to worry her.

So all in all it was a nice visit cause I didn't have anything clipped or cut or trimmed or poked or prodded, although I was felt up a little bit but it wasn't so bad.

Until next time:)

New duds!!

Da da da daaa... they're here!!  My new harnesses from Baxter's mom arrived in the mail today & hot diggitty dog are they awesome!! Woo wee, I am gonna be the best dressed dog in Louisville.  Mom says that she will take better pictures this weekend in the daylight but here's a sneek peak at our photo session tonite.

Mom calls this my goober pose  :)

Whaddya think??  I love my new spiffy duds, I can't wait to wear them around town so everybody can see just how awesome I look!!  And guess what else, there was an extra present in my box... a snackie treat ball!!  It's so cool, mom puts snackies inside of it then I roll it around & the treats fall out & then yummm.  How neat is that?!?  I'm not sure if Baxter or duk duk or B's mom put it in there for me but I just have one thing to say... THANK YOU!!!

Oh, and to B's mom, if you're reading this, my mom wants me to tell you that she loves loves loves my new harnesses almost as much as I do.  She oooo'd & aahhhh'd over them for a long time & then I finally got to do my sniffing & hey, was there a treaty in that cool little pocket???  Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for my cool new duds:)


Friday, October 7, 2011


Oh my goodness, wait til I tell you!!  I had some sleepover guests this week, it was my cousins Squirt, Oscar & Chief.  They used to live with my mom & Auntie Heather before me & my brother Pilot were born.

L to R: Squirt, Oscar, Chief, & me

We had such a good time, we ran around & played zoomies & barked at each other & did squirrel patrol together & went on walkies together & ate marshmellow snackies together (yum) & chewed on bones together & snuggled on mom, yep, together... it was so much fun!!  Mom says we were so fast she couldn't get a lot of pics so she put together what she could for me to show you.

I'm sad though cause they are moving to Nashville with their mom, my Auntie Ashley... what's so special about Nashville??  I mean, Auntie Heather moved there, my Auntie Chelsea & cousin Stella live there, and now Auntie Ashley & the weens... what gives??  All my playmates are moving away...  stupid ol' stinky Nashville... maybe if I promised them snackies & zoomies & snuggling everyday they'll come back.  Think it'll work??  Ideas are welcome:)

Anyhoo, I just wanted to tell you what an awesome week I had.  OH, & I also won a Halloweenie Costume Contest on Facebook last week, how cool is that?!?  Stay tuned for my post about my prize, hee hee...

See you soon!

Hungry, hungry doxie

I don't know if you know this or not, but doxie's are always hungry. I don't mean like we could eat a little extra treat now & then, I mean hun-ga-ryy!!  Feed-me-now-or-I'm-gonna-starve-to-death hungry!!

So every day I am sure to let mom know when it is time for my bowl to be prepared, you know, in my quiet low key bark inside voice. My first dinner is my favorite 'cause I get greeny beanies w/ my kibble!!  Mmmm mmm, I loooove greeny beanies.  I can hardly contain myself waiting for mom to get my bowl ready, I tell her so too.  Then, she makes me "wait"... WAIT to start eating!!  Oh the dog-manity!! 

But I wait because I'm a good boy & when she says "okay" I gobble it all down in about one minute...

There is nothing sadder than an empty food bowl, so I make sure to give mom my most pitiful gaze to let her know that it simply wasn't enough & that I'm wasting away... which never works, of course, & I have to wait a whole 2 hours to have my second dinner.

I have to go now, I have to go tell mom it's about that time...

Nap time

Ahhh, sleepy sleepy nap time.  Mom & I took a break today after going to Bark in the Park.

We had a great time today, I got to meet tons of new doggies & smell all kinds of stinky smells & I ate a bunch of treaties.  Every booth was giving them out & we went around more than once so by the time we got home my tummy was FULL!! 

And mom even got 2 new scarves for me to wear, 1 is even for Christmas time!!  Check 'em out...

cool huh??

Happy weekend:)

Moment of Silence

Today is a day for sadness & remembrance.  One of mine & mom's favorite blogs is The Long & Short of it All & today the sad news came that the hostess of this wonderful site, Maggie, has passed over the rainbow bridge.  She leaves behind her brother (Joey) & dad and tons of admirers around the globe and she will definitely be missed.  Mom & I are very sad to hear this news & just wanted to pay our respects to Maggie, below are some quotes mom found that express how we feel:

"You think dogs will not be in heaven? I tell you, they will be there long before any of us."
                               (Robert Louis Stevenson)

"Not the least hard thing to bear when they go from us, these quiet friends, is that they carry away with them so many years of our own lives."
                                       (John Galsworthy)

"Dogs don't know about beginnings, and they don't speculate on matters that occurred before their time. Dogs also don't know — or at least don't accept — the concept of death. With no concept of beginnings or endings dogs probably don't know that for people having a dog as a life companion provides a streak of light between two eternities of darkness."
                                         (Stanley Coren )

"A person who has never owned a dog has missed a wonderful part of life."
                                           (Bob Barker)

Rest in peace sweet Maggie.

Write a Post, Help a Dog

Hey everybody!!

So mom & I were checking out all our blog friends pages today & we came across a great way to help shelter pets!!  It's called Write a Post, Help a Dog and it's sponsored by Pedigree.  It's really simple, all you have to do write a simple blog post & then link up to the Blog Hop and *poof* doggies get fed... how awesome is that?!? I told mom we had to do it so here we are:)

How you can help in 2011
Simply spread the word about Write a Post, Help a Dog 2011 and once again Pedigree will donate 20 pounds of food for each blogger's post. Here's all you need to include in your post:

  • For each blog post mentioning the Pedigree Foundation from now until midnight ET on September 3, Pedigree will donate 20 pounds of its new dry Pedigree recipe food for dogs -- its best recipe ever -- to a shelter, because every dog deserves leading nutrition. 
  • The Pedigree Foundation -- a 501 (C)(3) nonprofit organization is committed to helping dogs by providing grants to shelters and rescues and encouraging dog adoption. This year the Foundation has already raised more than $376,570 against its goal of $1.5 million to carry out its work to fund grants that not only help shelters operate, but to further shelter innovations.
