Less and More

You remember the other day I told you momma said I was looking pretty shaggy?

Well...apparently THAT is code for 'You already have an appointment with the groomers!' So it wasn't just a statement...she used it as a warning.


The good news is I kept most of my furs, with the exception of my face and feet and bottom. It's been awfully cold, and Momma says we aren't out of it yet. Though spring is right around the corner, winter is hanging on and not wanting to let us go.

As a matter of fact, this coming Sunday straight into Tuesday we're supposed to be getting more snow.



So no, we are NOT out from mean old winter's grip yet. I'm crossing my paws and hoping that spring comes to save us sooner rather then later.

Until then, I think I'll just stay inside where it's nice and warm and play with my squeeky-fox.

Wordless Wednesday


Uh-oh...Momma says I'm looking pretty shaggy lately, and it's time for me to get my furs cut again!

Play with Me?

Hey, Babycat...I have an idea....
...play with me?
Ack! Is that a no?!
...pretty please, Babycat?

...are you going to bop me again?! But...I said please!

Sorrow and Joy

Yesterday momma and I heard some sad news over at Frankie and Ernie's that sweet Daisy of Downunder Daisy lost her battle with cancer and has since gone over the Rainbow Bridge. Momma and I are both sure that she was greeted well by all her friends who had gone over previously, and that she will watch carefully as Angel-Daisy over her friends and family still here on earth. 

Our hearts, mine and momma's, go out to all who are hurting with this sad news. 
Run free at the Bridge, sweet scottie princess, and know how much you are already missed.

Despite the sorrow of this news, there is joy also in Blogville.

Lily, of Two French Bulldogs, has a new friend to play with! His name is Julius Edward, and he does certainly look like a swell guy. I can't wait to see how much trouble fun he and Lily start having! Why not go over and welcome him to Blogville?

Speaking of fun...

All that now we have here in Pennsylvania is beginning to melt down! It's making things pretty wet and muddy and puddle-y, of course...but the most important thing about it is I can play in and/or on top of it again! 



This is a SUPER joyful thing, because I was getting so sooo SOOOOO bored having to be inside, or be restricted to having to walk and run through shoveled paths.

I have enjoyed the snow this winter, but I can say that now that we've had all this snow and it's starting to melt I hope it continues to melt with no more snow coming because I am beyond ready to feel the solid ground that's hiding beneath the snow under my paws again!


Spring, come soon! Here in Pennsylvania we are ready for you!

Review Time!

We got another email from the wonderful Mr. Andrew at Chewy.com, asking if we'd like to try another new treat?

Two words: Yes, please!


It didn't take long for the new yumminess to arrive, because Mr.Chewy is super awesome with their shipping! Even WITH all the crazy snows we've been having, it still got to us promptly.

So, what fun deliciousness is in the box?


For this round of treats, Mom chose these Canidae TidNips Meaty-Licious treats (view these treats on Chewy.com's webpage here, or on Canidae's webpage here). She chose these for me because she knows I enjoy a good soft treat over harder crunchy ones, and these seemed to fit the bill. Here's how Chewy describes these treats on the treats webpage:

CANIDAE Chicken, Turkey, Lamb & Salmon TidNips are soft and tasty treats that your dog will love! Made with real chicken, turkey, lamb, and salmon, and supplemented with Vitamin E and Omega-3 fatty acids, these treats are not only fun to feed, they are good for your dog too! Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps your dog live a happy and healthy lifestyle. Omega-3 fatty Acids support a healthy skin and coat and a strong immune system.
Key Benefits
  • Soft, tasty, real meat treats with wholesome rice and cranberries
  • Fun to feed and perfect as a reward
  • Vitamin E and Omega-3 Fatty Acids for healthy coat and skin
  • Healthy, natural and holistic
  • No corn, wheat, or soy

See?! Sounds good, right? 
And here is the ingredients list:
Chicken, Turkey, Potato, Lamb, Brown Rice, Vegetable Glycerine, Oats, Salmon, Carrots, Peas, Molasses, Potato Starch, Cranberries, Salt, Natural Smoke Flavor, Garlic Powder, Sodium Bisulfate, Flax Seed, Sorbic Acid, Citric Acid, Mixed Tocopherols, Rosemary



These treats aren't so very large, but if you're a small dog like me your people might like to tear these into smaller pieces. The good news is is that Momma says they are very easy to tear apart!


Now that all that super BORING important stuff is out of the way...onto the taste test! 



For my first taste Momma gave me a whole, untorn apart treat...and am I ever glad. It gave me a good chance to form my expert doggie opinion of the taste of these.
MEATY-LICIOUS. Just as the package proclaimed! 


I give these treats 4 paws up! If you want to try some for yourself, head on over the Chewy.com for a bag of your very own because I'm sorry...but I am NOT sharing!

Sepia Saturday!

After all that pawtying at the Queen of Hearts dance yesterday, I am certainly pooped out! It was a close thing that I even made it to any of the fun yesterday....we had A LOT of snow over the past two days.


There I am running down the path Momma had to shovel to our fuel tank. 

And you know what?

Today we're getting another couple of inches.

....can we be done with winter now?

February 14, 2014

Woohoo! Dance Day!

It's here, it's here...it's FINALLY here! Today is Valentine's day, a day honoring this wonderful thing called love! What else is today, that I am so super excited for?! Even MORE excited for then the actual holiday itself?!

Since Momma can't figure out how to link the picture, click anywhere on this text to go to Madi's blog for a link to all the fun events happening through Blogville today! 

Today is Mayoress Madi's Queen of Hearts dance...and I am so excited to attend!!! The wonderful Mayoress and LOTS of our Blogville friends have worked very super hard to put together this even for us, and I am so thankful and just KNOW it's going to be lots of fun! 

This is going to be my very first ever Blogville event, and I plan on doing it ALL. Stuffing myself silly with all the wonderful foods, dancing till my paws are sore, singing along with ALL the BDA's awesome music....just EVERYTHING! 

Thank to my buddy Ranger and his Rangebrant Studios for putting together the perfect party outfit for me! 

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go get started! So much PAWTYING to do, so little time!

Did you know...

...that I have a fur-sister? Not another poodle, or even another dog.




Nope.

My fur-sister is Momma's cat, Baby.

Baby has lived with Momma since 2004, when she came home with Momma as the last kitten in a litter that's her cousin's neighbor's cat had had.

Momma actually had to smuggle kitten-Baby into the house, because her poppa didn't particularly like cats and was against her having one. Momma's poppa didn't even know that kitten-Baby was in the house until a good two-weeks later! He has been a fan of Baby ever since.



I say Baby is my fur-sister, but really we aren't that close. Momma tells me I'm a little to rambunctious of a pup for the 10-year old cat. I try to get her to play with me, but most of the time she just bops me on the nose and finds higher ground to look down on me from. 


Her nose bops don't hurt; she has no claws. Sadly, that was one of two things that Mom's poppa demanded happen if she wanted to keep Baby with her (the second thing was being spayed).

Mom decided that today would be a good day to introduce Baby to all my furiends here, because there reaaaallllly isn't much happening here in my world otherwise.

Except for maybe this:



This snow started at about midnight last night, and has been going ever since. Mom took that video this morning at about 10:00am EST, and it's still going. Yeesh. I like snow and all...but this is bonkers!

Black and White Sunday AND...


My official 100th blog post...which momma very nearly missed! Shame on you, Momma! In honor of it, she threw together a super sloppy quick photoshoot of me and some of my favorite toys for today's Black and White Sunday, hosted by the most gawjuss Dachshund Nola and the sweetest dog EVER, Sugar the Golden Retriever!

Snow-down Throw-down Thursday

Today Momma and I headed over to Poppa's house where we'll be spending the next few days. We haven't visited for about a week, so I was really excited to see him and my best pal, Honey!

As soon as we got there, Momma shoo'd us outside so we could have a throwdown play a little bit in on top of the snow. I say on top of because after all the snow yesterday we also got some freezing rain and sleet, so all that created a hard crusty layer over the soft snow. 

I don't sink in anymore, now I can just walk overtop it...and so can Honey!


Come on, Wesley! Let's play!






There were a few big 'ol holes in some spots of the snow, I decided to investigate! Of course, Honey came over and helped.
Helllllo! Anyone in there?!




As it turns out, there wasn't anything in those holes...just the smell of Honey's feet! The holes were made by her  yesterday when she tried to walk through the snow.

Wordless Wednesday: LOTS of snow

That's...a lot of snow...but I'm gonna try playing in it anyway!

Here I go!!





OK, that's enough...coming back in! 

...Really?! That's as far as I went?!

MORE snow and Barkday wishes!

And JUST when all the old stuff was starting to melt these past few days...now we are getting MORE snow.



We're supposed to get from 2-4 inches throughout the day today, which isn't terrible awful BUT it is still snow and, according to Momma 'MOST unwelcome!'. 

In other news, the Barkday and Gotcha day calenders organized by Jazzi and Riley's Mom, Elyse have arrived! This is very exciting, cause now I can know when all my friends special days are! 

AND today, according to this most awesome of calenders, it tells me that today is a double whammy Barkday day!

Today is the second birthday of the coolest doods around, Murphy and Stanley

Happy Barkday, guys! Hope you get your most favoritest treats ALL day and LOTS of super fun presents!
