Sepia Saturday - Sleepy Sepia Paws

Today I'm joining up with Ruckus the Eskie in his Sepia Saturday blog hop!

#TBT - One Year Ago

Just about one year ago today this was taken. Puppy me poking around in my toy basket, looking for that perfect thing to play with.

And for comparison, Momma took a similar photo of me just today...

Boy have I grown! Looks like so has all my stuff, BOL!

Also joining in on my buddy Ruckus the Eskie and Love is being owned by a husky's Thoughtless Thursday blog hop today...which is even more fun then my basket of toys!

Wordless Wednesday

Joining in today on Blogpaws' Wordless Wednesday blog hop!


Starting today and running through to this Saturday (June 28th) my buddy Oz the Terrier, together with Zuke's, is hosting a super-special blog hop - The Fuel the Cure blog hop.

So, betcha you're wondering what's so super-special about it? Well, for every entry into this blog hop, Zuke's will be making a $5.00 donation to The Dog and Cat Cancer Fund.

Now, that's pretty awesome...but what is this fund? Well, straight off their website it says:

At the Dog & Cat Cancer Fund we help fight canine and feline cancer. We work directly with veterinarians to help needy families get treatment for their cats and dogs suffering from cancer. We offer grants to help scientists conduct research into the next generation of life saving treatments. We promote prevention by raising awareness, understanding the risk factors, and encouraging early testing for canine and feline cancer.
What a wonderful, worthwhile thing that is!! Thankfully Momma has never had any issues with cancer in an…

Check out my new favorite toy!

As always, our good friend Mr.Andrew at Chewy emailed Momma earlier at the beginning of tis month wondering if I'd be intrested in giving a try to one of a couple different products.  As always, I was super delighted to do so!
This month there were a few completely different things offered - things NOT edible - TOYS! I DO love me a good toy, and chose the  Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff Woof Fetch Ball with Rope Dog Toy.

So, first off, what does have to say about this toy?

These Orbee-Tuff Woof. Fetch balls are durable, bouncy, buoyant and mint-scented!
Key Benefits Non-toxicRecyclableRinses cleanMade in the U.S.A.

I have to say, this toy is SOOOO much fun! Since there's a nice rope handle on it, and the ball is a decent weight (heavy, but not too heavy!) it's super great for playing fetch! Bonus, if it hits a hard surface it bounces real well, so just when you think it's coming down and you can get it...NOPE!

Because of the rope handle it's also pretty much perfect fo…

Black and White Sunday: Yawwwwwwwwwwn

REVIEW: Pet Naturals of Vermont Flea+Tick

As you all know, Momma and I (and sometimes Poppa, too!) like to go for hikes in our area on a pretty regular basis. So far this year we've done a handful of them, with plans on doing many more this season...Momma and Poppa are even talking about going on a super-special few nights overnight trip somewhere in New York in a month or two! They say that I'm going to, and oh boy am I excited!

BUT as excited as I am about that, and as much fun as hiking is it does have a few parts to it that are no fun.

One of those parts is ticks and bugs.

Especially ticks, which seem to be particularly awful this year!

This is why when Pet Naturals of Vermont reached out to me and my Momma and asked if I'd be interested in trying out their Flea+Tick all natural insect repellent I was more then excited to give them an enthusiastic YES.

Since I've been a little puppy Momma has always had me on some sort of flea and tick prevention - K9 Advantix II and more recently for this year the Seresto …

Tasty Tuesday - Homemade Frosty Paws

Thankfully my Momma seems to be the forgiving sort, so even though I the squirrels made her super mad on Sunday she still made me something tasty for today.

Which is even more special, because she hardly makes me anything ever - Not even for my own birthday or anything! So what is it that she made for me?

Homemade Frosty Paws doggie treats!

Momma says these are actually really super easy to make. Ingredient wise all you need are some bananas, peanut butter, plain or vanilla yogurt, and honey. That's it! Then you just measure it all out, throw it in a blender until it's all mixed up and smooth, taste test-

- then divide the mixture up into something you wouldn't mind putting into the freezer (paper cups, a muffin tin, used up yogurt cups, etc...) -

Pop them into the freezer and have some patience as they freeze into delicious cold treats!

((Wes Momma: The recipe I used for this came from a generic google search which landed me on this website and so that is the recipe I use…

Monday Mischief - Uh-oh...

So yesterday if you read my blog you may have noticed a few things.

One, that it was Father's Day! Yay for fathers!

Two, that is was my first ever gotcha day! YAY ME!

Three...some doggy made my poor Momma all upset!

You see, yesterday she was taking pictures with her most favorite camera, a Nikon D90. At one point she had to take a photo break so she could take a potty break.

Carefully she set the camera on the kitchen table, but left the strap hanging off of it...

Then - while she was busy doing her own personal business - there came a loud BANG!!! from the kitchen, and when she came back there lie her poor camera on the floor in two pieces.

The camera body, and a few feet away the camera lens.

Momma's eyes landed on me...poor, completelyinnocent me...and she growled meaner then any doggie can ever hope to growl "Wesley, what did you do?!"

"But it wasn't me, Momma!" I told her, telling her the absolute 100% honest truth. "It was the squirrels! THE…

B&W Sunday, Father's Day Annnnnd...

also my gotcha day! YAY!

So Happy Father's day out there to one and all- if you're a father, a grandfather, a stepfather, a fur-kid father, a single mother who pulls double duty, or any other such thing. Happy Father's day to you!

I'm also joining in on Nola and Sugar's Black and White Sunday blog hop today...and what better way to do it then with a picture of me and my Poppa from exactly one year ago today!

((Ps- Uhoh...I did something not-good today and Momma is quite upset with me. It may have involved her Nikon D3000 and a hard BANG on the ground...))

She's moody?!

It's an icky wet, rain-y, cold, no-good day today...and Momma seems to be in a mood. Well, what does SHE have to be all moody about? I'm t he one who should be moody! First she was way late coming home! Like...HOURS late!Second, she let me run out of my Stella and Chewy's this morning...and even though she was late coming home she didn't bring anymore back for me! This means I had to eat my Taste of the Wild dry...DRY! Can you believe it?!

And she thinks she gets to be all moody and grummbly about some flat tire thing?!

Humans and their silly little problems!

(Wes' Momma: It's truely been a not-so-good day. Screw in tire flats are no fun. And then you have a hell of a time getting your car jack from it's little cubby hole. And then you find out your tire iron is missing. And then it starts absolutely pouring down rain, Noah-style. Thank goodness for kind mechanic-strangers willing to help...even in monsoon-like rains. )

Wordless Wednesday

Betcha didn't know I could drive a train, did you?!

Also if you are unaware of it, please send some PotP out to Frankie as there is something going on with one of his eyeballs! Head over to his blog for more info and updates on poor Frankie.

Tongue Out Tuesday

Woofie all! Mom's been super lazy with MY blog lately! Going out and about in the world, walking with my poppa and visiting her dad in the hospital...but NOT BLOGGING. She has apologized to me and said she'd try to be better about it this week. Humph. I'm not sure I believe her!
I forgive her...this time. Treats are a powerful tool of forgiveness. BOL.
