Momma's first fur-kid and my favoritest fur-sister Baby looks pretty good in Sepia, doncha think?

Joining up today with my buddy Ruckus' Sepia Saturday blog hop!

Mmmmm Cookies!

Image
Who doesn't love a really good, yummy cookie?

How about not just any really good yummy cookies but cookies that are made with all organic, human-grade ingredients? How about if all the ingredients used are no-questions asked, 100% immediately recognizable?

Sounds like a really tasty deal, doesn't it?


Paw Street Barkery (previously known as The Barker's Dozen) is a small gourmet, all organic dog treat company located in Chicopee, Massachusetts. This company was founded back in 2008 after it's founders noticed a need for a dog treat company where people could trust that the treats they were feeding to their more furry family members were safe.

Earlier in the month Paw Street Barkery got in touch with me and was super kind in asking if I'd be interested in taste testing one or two products of the treats that they offer.

For this review, they sent me THREE different types of delicious treats: Woofie PiesSweet Paw-tato treats, and Blueberry Bone-anza treats.



Momma set …

Silver...to orange?!

Image
So yesterday my Poppa and his brother decided to do something weird!

They decided to change Steven's (that's Poppa's brother's name!) silver colored car into an orange one!

It was a long, all-day process and Momma snapped pictures of it while I supervised. I wasn't happy about it, Momma tied my long line around a tree away from the action and out from where the breeze was blowing the smells of the stuff they were using.

Here are some of the pictures Momma took of the whole event!


First thing they had to do was to cover anyplace on the car they didn't want to spend forever peeling the paint stuff, Plastidip, off from.

||
Just about everything is covered!


Good job, guys! Looks good from here!


Once the car was properly covered, Steven pulled out this bucket of paint and mixed it up really good.

WOW! That's orange!

After it was properly mixed in it went into this spray-gun-machine thing. Him and Poppa put on these mask things, and then the re-coloring began!

Black and White Sunday

Image
Please excuse the crappy iPhone picture, Momma was not wanting to run downstairs to get her good camera.

Yes, I got cone'd.

On Friday Momma was looking at my freshly groomed face and noticed some irritation near my eye and mouth on one side of my face and wondered if she hadn't clipper burned me.

Yesterday it wasn't looking any better and actually a little bit worse, so she and Poppa decided to pack me up and take me to the V-E-T.

A prescription for some Cephalexin caplets, Douxo Chlorhexidine pads, and the dreaded cone of shame (so I can't rub the area on the carpet or scratch and make it worse!) and we were out.

I am no happy with Momma right now, I will hardly even look at her! Poppa I am slowly forgiving...so long as he keeps offering me treats.


Today I'm also going to link up with Dachshund Nola and Sugar the Golden Retriever for the Black and White Sunday blog hop.

((Wes' Momma - This little dog is making me feel so bad, he looks so pathetic. Mistakes wil…

Sepia Saturday

Image
Come on Mom, my blog isn't going to write itself!

Joining up today with Ruckus the Eskie on his Sepia Saturday blog hop!



And the results....

Image
So yesterday without much warning Momma went ahead and brought some torture devices groomers sheers from Petsmart.

She seemed to think that I was beginning to look pretty unkempt, and had decided that to pay to get me groomed every-so often just wasn't doing it for her financially.


She watched a lot of videos the day before, and while I didn't think anything of it then now I realize they were how-to's on poodle torture grooming!

Are instructional videos like that even legal to be out?! I think they shouldn't be!

Anyway...what was the result of all this?



Momma seems pretty pleased with how it all went down...with the exception of my nails. Now that all my warm-foot fur is gone, she can see just how long they really are - "way too long, Wes!".

She says next up on her list of things for me is a nail-grinding dremel thing, because if she's gonna go as far as clipping me down she should learn to do that, too!

I think she's gone crazy, and would really just l…

Woohoo! Shopping!

Image
Momma got paid today, and so we did a little shopping this morning! First we went into one of Momma's favorite local owner stores where she found Cloud Star treats on sale for buy one get one free...yummy!

Close to this store is Petsmart, so instead of driving we just walked down the strip! There were lots of people out and about today - it's so nice out! - Momma thought it would be a good time to work on my people skills (I can be shy and nervous, and barky because of it.)

With the help of Momma's pocket full of just purchases Cloud Star treats, I did GREAT! A few people even stopped to comment on how cute I was, and I did very good in taking a Momma-offered treat from them.
I was very excited when we finally got to Petsmart, I LOVE Petsmart and I always have to announce my arrival by barking it out. The employees there always laugh and say 'Wesley's here!'.
We spent a good deal of time in Petsmart, with Momma doing a lot of staring at grooming things...

...it m…

Black and White Sunday

Momma and Poppa were hanging out in the kitchen, Poppa on his Ipad and Momma on her laptop, when Momma looked over and saw this. She seemed to be very glad that the camera was well withen reach and already set to shoot Black and White for today!

Sepia Saturday AND a VERY Happy Birthday!

Image
For alllllll this week Momma and I get to stay over at Poppa's house...which means I get to play with Honey the whole week! Which is VERY exciting!

Already this morning we had a super fun game of chase and bitey-face!

Since Momma took the photo in stupendous sepia, we're linking up today with Ruckus the Eskie on his Sepia Saturday blog hop!



ALSO....!!

We have realized that today is a super special day for one of Blogville's sweetest citizens, Miss.Sugar the Golden Retriever! Today is Sugar's 13th birthday...isn't that awsome!? So for her birthday she has requested smiles from all her friends...so here are our smiles for you, Sugar!


Happiest Birthday Sugar!!!

Thursday Tricks

Image
I'm no circus dog, but I do have a trick or two up my sleeve!


Stand!


Paw!

Touch!
I also know sit, down, off (the bed, the chair, etc...), roll-over, fetch, jump up (into Momma's arms!), with me (instead of heel), and look at me (for when momma wants my attention!).
It's not a super impressive list...but Momma's happy with it and is always on the lookout for more things to teach me!

Training can be lots of fun!

Ok, I confess...

Image
...in regards to yesterday's post...I knew ALL ALONG who it was in my photos! 
Blogville, please meet my new kitty-cousin, Fiona. 


My aunt Sarah brought Fiona here to live with us about two weeks ago (ya know, during that period where my Momma was being a bummer head?). At first I wanted to chase and play with her, but Momma said she was just a little too little for the kind of rough play that I like, so I had to be supervised very carefully when I was around her.

Now, Fiona has already gotten bigger and the very careful supervision has toned down to  just normal supervision.




So far, I really like my new kitty-cousin! We have plenty of fun playing things like hide and seek and chase!

However while I'm finding Fiona to be lots of fun and we get on greats...my fur-sister, Baby, isn't so sure...


While Baby isn't being mean to Fiona or anything, she certainly doesn't seem to want to have much to do with her. Should Fiona get a little to close Baby gives her a good hiss …

Mischief Monday - Who is that?!

Image
No really...who is it?! First, hiding behind one of the leaves of Momma's plant in the living room...
Then playing a game of peek-a-boo with me around the corner of the kitchen...!


Then, after that this mystery someone tried to sneak up on my fur-sister Baby as she was watching out the window!


Really though Momma...who is that?!
