The Winners Are…….

Wow we had fun! I don’t know why the pictures are so bad, it’s probably that mom is so technologically challenged! But any way! Mom printed up everyone’s name that commented on the giveaway post then she cut them apart for me. We folded them in half and put them on the floor with a little treat on each one. Riley got to go look for a treat.

Mom chose which gift Riley was sniffing out a name for before she sent him in. First he went from this side.

Then he went from this side. Then mom mixed the names all up again and he did it again.

Jenny the cat insisted on picking the last one. She even ate the doggie treat. Hummmmmmm…

Happy Adoption Day To Me!

The 27th of November is extra happy for me because it is my adoption day! Way back in 2006, when I was just a few months old I was living at a kennel because the people who bought me couldn’t handle a puppy. He was sick and she was looking out for him and me. They put me at the kennel and had the nice lady there look for a home for me. Well, my Aunt Sandi borded Cowboy there and found out about me. She got mom to come look and the rest is history! I came home with mom and have been happy ever since!

The Wednesday Howl (Boy or Girl?)

The Wednesday Howl

A three-year-old boy went with his dad to see a new litter of Labrador puppies. On returning home, he breathlessly informed his mother, “There were three boy Labrador puppies and four girl Labrador puppies.”
“How did you know that?” his mother asked.
“Daddy picked them up and looked underneath,” he replied. “I think it is printed on their bottoms.

My One Year Blogoversary!

2Hi everyone! I’m so excited! I’ve been blogging for one year now. I have made so many nice bloggie friends and had a lot of fun. To celebrate I an going to give away a few goodies. All you have to do is comment today and tomorrow, the 25th and the 26th. Then a little break for Thanksgiving on the 27th cause no one will be here to help me with the computer and on the 28th mom and I will draw names to see who will get the little gifties. Wish we could just give something to all my bloggie friends! So here is what I have:

There is a little brown rabbit stuffie witha squeaker, a blue bear with streatchy arms and legs, my very favorite kind of chewy bone called Chew N Clean, there is a pack of Jumbones and two packs of Beggin Chew. OOps, I forgot to put the hedgehog in the picture! I think I’ll have Riley help drawing names, that should be fun. I can’t wait to see mom trying to get the names away from him. 🙂

Blogoversary

The Wednesday Howl (Beware of Dog)

The Wednesday Howl

On the door of the little country store a stranger noticed the sign DANGER! BEWARE OF DOG! Inside he saw a harmless old hound dog asleep on the floor besides the cash register.
He asked the store manager, “Is THAT the dog folks are supposed to beware of?” “Yep, that’s him,” he replied.
The stranger could not help but be amused. “That certainly does not look like a dangerous dog to me. Why in the world would you post that sign?”
“Because,” the owner replied, “before I posted that sign, people kept tripping over him.”

Video Of All 3 Of Us

Here is a video of all three of us doggies. Bear is the big dog. She is old and doesn’t like to play much but she puts up with Riley and his playing around. I never bother her.

 DALLAS UPDATE

Dallas got the wire taken out of his jaw yesterday and he is just fine! He was real wobbly when mom brought him home so he had to spend the night in the bathroom.

Potty Training

This morning mom was a little discouraged with Riley and the progress of his potty training and here is why. She got up at 5:30 like she always does and let us out. She made coffee and about 10 minutes later she let us in. Riley RAN in, RAN over to one of his puppy pads and pottied. Mom said something I can’t say here, then she said, “Well, so much for potty training” and walked out of the kitchen, laughing and shaking her head,  to go tell dad what Riley did.  I was a much better boy than that when I was growing up! Mom says at least it was on the puppy pad. 🙂

  • Want the Vet to get a new BMW
  • Garden and backyard need renovation, don’t want to pay a gardener
  • Furniture look too nice
  • Neighbors don’t complain enough
