Catching Up!

This has been such a busy week.   First there was the wonderful date night.

I'm so happy that the lovely Miss Shady agreed to go with me.  As you can see below we had a great time!


Shady ended up pretty worn out.



I, of course, headed for the buffet!  :-)



This was followed up with a GABE win.   I was soooo surprised.  I won treats from Happy Hearts Dog Cookies.    And the bestest prize ever a giant pooper scooper:


Finally we did our Gabe drawing and Erin and Guide Pup Pompei won.  Look at the adorable picture that is going to be on her custom water bottle!


Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

My Wonderful Bed(s)

There have been many comments about my wonderful stack of beds.  Mom thought it would nice to pass on her most wonderful find.  She gets them at Costco, they are Kirkland brand huge and less than $20.  Mom looked online and apparently they are an in the store only thing.   We have them several places in the house since the whole first floor is tile.  Great for cleaning, not so much for sleeping on, unless of course we just came in from running around and it's hot.

The beds go to which ever dog loses the couch lottery.  Since that is our first choice for sleeping.  Mom always gets first dibs on her chair.  :-( So we end up an odd puppy out.

You saw this picture yesterday.


And this is Lucky when he lost the lottery!


Remember just a bit more than a day to get in on our GABE give away!  Good Luck!

There are still a few days left to comment on my GABE blog for your chance at a win a wonderful water bottle with your happy waggy face on it!

As you can see all the traveling and saying hi has worn me out!


Hope you are all having a wonderful day!

Catching up....Favoritest Aunt Jaime

My most sincere apologizes for my lack of posting.  My scribe has been overly busy!

My most Favoritest Aunt Jaime was over tonight and being goofy so I thought this might be a nice time to introduce her.  She is my mom's bestest friend and she comes and stays with us when mom goes out of town.  Truth be told she is the only one beside mom and dad we let in the house if mom and dad aren't home.  She takes super good care of us.  She taught us to sleep on the furniture and in bed with my people. See we are Ridgebacks and if you let us doing something just 1 time we are sure it's ok forever.

This is Aunt Jaime being goofy tonight!  


Yesterday she went with mom and dad to take us for a walk.



She even made yummy sopapillas last night and we had Mazyie's mom and dad come over to share!  We like them a lot too.  They are very much dog people you know!

Last but not least there was left over steak on Saturday and my dad was most generous in sharing with me!   See my wonderful table manners eating off the fork!



Hope you are all having a great day and we will try to make our rounds to catch up with everyone!

I got a date I got a date!

Oh most happy day!

I asked the lovely Miss Shady over at Dog Eared Tales if she wanted to come to Twix's Date Night  with me and she said YES!


Shady's the one in the back, isn't she lovely.

We both are spoiled by our people too...look how she sleeps.


You all have seen all my couch pictures so you know how I sleep.  

I am so looking forward to it!

Fabulous Friday

Today turned out to be a most wonderful day! We ended up getting to go for a walk!




Jada and I usually end up out front with Lurpy bringing up the rear.

Here we are again!


Daddy walked us because we were walking faster. Mom was walking Lurpy because she had a session with her evil trainer last night and she couldn't walk much faster than Lurpy! :-)

When we got done with our walk I got to go with mom to get the mail. I do a very good heal to the mailbox and back.


Finally when I got back from helping get the mail Jada and I got to play Eat Your Sister! It was a marvelous time!




Hope you had a good a day as I did!

Mayzie Gal and the Calendar Boy!

So I started making the rounds this morning and saw that Miss Mayzie had shared all about my bloggie.  I was so excited.  I know Miss Mayzie is so very popular so I have all this pressure to put out a good post today.  :-)  Ok, not really, but I wanted to share something special. 

So you all have heard that all us pups here were rescued from Rhodesian Ridgeback Rescue.  Well they do a calendar every year as a fundraiser.  Since I am so photogenic mom decided to submit my picture. 


And look there is me on July 21st.  My Gotcha day!   Mom was sooo very excited that I got picked. 
You can get more information on the calendar at this link.  Feel free to pick up your own calendar and just leave it sitting on July 21st!   I know that is what mom likes to do! 

I am so very much enjoying meeting all my new furiends.  Remember we are active pawticipants in GABE so remember to say hi for your chance to win!

Wags!!!

Happy Easter and More Introductions!

Since Easter is all about bunnies and kittehs are almost like bunnies I thought introducing you all to my kitteh brothers and sister was in order.

I have 3 brothers and 1 sister.   You'll have to excuse the pictures, they are just not as photogenic as I am.  :-)

So I have 1 sister her name is Sabrina, but pretty much everyone calls her Owl since in the middle of the night with her yellow eyes that what she seems like.


Next is mom's other cat and kitteh brother number 1.  His name is Petey, but he gets called either Squeaky (great big cat....little bitty voice) or Speedbump (he lays on the stairs and absolutely will not move).


Next are dad's kittehs, Tanner and Chaplin.  Tanner from his color, Chaplin from his Charlie Chaplin mustache.   They came to live with us last year and we decided they were ok.  

We hope you are having a most wonderful Easter! 

Wags!

I almost became a big brother.....

So this morning mom and dad left us all alone went to run errands and came across this little guy running around naked.



Since it was by a busy street of course they stopped to see if they could catch him.  Well he was very furiendly so dad scooped him and put him in the car.  They took him to the nice Dr. Barb lady to see if maybe he had a microchip!  Well guess what he did!  Yeah. Then mom called  and found out his name was Rocky and the people asked if we were in Texas.  Ooops!   Colorado is a long way from Texas we remember.  So they left messages at some phone numbers they had and bit later mom got a call from his grandmother.  She said she would call his mom and have her call my mom.

She called back and said she was working til 2 but would see what she could do, turns out he can jump a 6' fence, mad skill this one has.  So mom and dad brought him back and let him run around in our yard for a bit while dad watched him.  All the time we ran back forth asking who are you what are you doing in our yard. Since he can jump mom thought the basement kennel was a safer place so she locked us up and took him down there.

His daddy ended up calling a bit later and came and picked him up.  Turns out somewhere along the line he had lost his clothes which is why he was naked.   And he had run a long way too, so if he had not been chipped and mom and dad had just put up signs his mom and dad may not have seen them.

It was good that they had his grandmas number or we might not have found his parents since his information on his chip record was still their TX information.

So if you have your pets chipped make sure the information is all up to date!  Make sure you little furiends can find their way back home.

BTW Favoritest Aunt Jaime is a bit mad at mom and dad for giving him back!  She thought he was pawfully darn cute and would have loved him and loved him!

Hope you are all having a wonderful Saturday!

Hello Weekend...

This has been such a big first bloggin' week.  I've meet tons of new furiends and I'm actively pawticipating in GABE.  

So Tuesday night dad was making a milkshake and he ended up sharing with all of us. He is just the best dad EVER!   Then Wednesday was daycare day.  We got to go romp and play and have a great time.

Yesterday was the start of GABE.  We tried to get around to everyone but things just got busy so we will have to work on that some today and tomorrow.   Mom took the day off work today so maybe she will take us for a walk, we'll see if mother nature cooperates.

I thought I had a bunch to say....but I think I just want a nap!

GABE .....

Photo

So I'm very new to this blogging thing and decided what better way to make new friends that to, what did Miss Mayzie say....'actively pawticipate'.   Then I thought what to give away.  And I thought....and I thought.  And I searched and I searched and I found the coolest thing!

You can make water bottles and put pictures on them.  Who would have thought!  Mom made one with my handsome mug so you could see what it would be like.


It's a great metal one (1 L) and you can get it with whatever you want written on it and your very own picture.

So here's my plan.   Comment on this post between now and 4/18.   Then I'll get mom and dad or favoritest Aunt Jaime (we'll tell you more about her later) to pull out a name.  Then we will send you a note so you can send us the picture you want and what you want it to say.    So you get your very own custom prize!  How cool is that.  I'm pretty sure mom is going to get the one you see above so that she can show me off more.

The wonderful thinker upper of GABE, Twinkie is keeping the list of all the blogging animals so go and visit.

Hope you are having a wonderful April Fools and that no one tricks you!

Wags!
