It's Official!

So it's official.  Maddie is the newest member of our pack.  She came on Tuesday and we took to her like she'd always been here.    We are still working on things with Cuz'in Ruger, but we are sure in time they will settle in. 

Here is some of what happened with mom and the flashy beast! 

She's a bit skiddish. 

She found a bed that she liked.

She has been helping mom work. 

She makes a big mess when she drinks (see the dark spot to the let of the bowl)

She got comfortable and sacked out. 

And she hoarded the bones.
She is already starting to come out of her shell.  She hops around, wags her tail and loves to get loved on.

Teaser Follow-Up

So most of you probably know that mom is a big giant softy when it comes to fur kids.  She took Jada and me at the same time so we wouldn't have to be split up, being brother and sister and all.  Then about a year later we got Lucky when he was 11.    A lot of people thought mom was nuts...that we might only have him 6 months.  Why get attached if he was just going to cross over soon.  Well he didn't, he was with us almost 2 and 1/2 years and he just made mom and dad and everyone smile all the time. 

Lucky and his bat ear!

So you guys all remember Miss Mayzie's Rescue Me event right?!  Well we featured dogs from several rescues.  One was from Big Dogs Huge Paws, a 10 year old Brindle English Mastiff named Maddie.  

Well assuming that we all get along she has a new furever home...WITH US!   People are probably going to say that mom is nuts again (isn't the first time and won't be the last) but she and dad don't care.  We think she is mighty special.

We think it's pretty funny that most people thought she was a he.  :-D 

So we'll let you know more about when she's coming.  She's not very far away so it's just a matter of making sure that we don't stress her out with the holidays.

Pip Pip Hurray!

We just wanted to say how privileged we feel to have been part of Pip's Couch Occupation and Comment-A-Thon.  It's so wonderful to see everyone banding together to help the Pittie Pack. 

Way to go Pip!!!


Mr. Nubbin'

PeeS.  Mom promised we don't have to go without to cover all the comments.  We are even getting extra treats since she's been so needy around us lately!

Pet Lovers Unite!!!

We read on KISSA-BULL where Miss Sandra wrote "i'll never forget how alone i felt that night when i was screaming for help for my doggies and all i could hear from my neighbors was that us humans were safe and that they were just dogs" and were completely heartbroken.  

These are people that obviously have never known the love of a pet.    They don't understand the lengths that pet parents go to for the family members that they love.  And yes they are family members.  We made a conscience decision to not have 2 legged children.  All of our kids have 4 legs and fur.  Everyone that knows me knows this.   There are many times when my friends are talking about the issues they have with their 2 legged kids and I say DOGS!!!   

One of the many many things I love about our blog community is that it has connected me with so many like minded fur parents.  People that understand spending thousands of dollars on surgery because you can't imagine time without your furry kids.  

I have to admit that when I read the above and the comments from the other neighbor about burying them by the tree in the backyard.  I was all ready to round up the Blogville Posse and head for Houston!   So if anyone wants to join the Posse just let me know!

I know lately that a lot of our posts have been a bit melancholy so I wanted to end this on a fun note. 

I'm sure that many of you have seen these in one form or another before but I wanted to share them again!

Notice to Guests At My House

1. The dogs lives here. You don't.

2. If you don't want the dog to be near you, stay off the furniture.

3. Yes, they have some disgusting habits. So do I, and so do you. What's your point?

4. OF COURSE they smell like a dogs.

5. It's their nature to try to sniff your crotch. Please feel free to sniff theirs.

6. I like them a lot better than I like most people.

7. He does THAT because he CAN!

8. To you they are dogs. To me they are adopted sons and daughters who are short, hairy, walk on all fours and don't speak clearly. I have no problem with any of these things.

9. Dogs are better than kids. They eat less, don't ask for money all the time, are easier to train, usually come when called, never drive your car, don't hang out with drug-using friends, don't smoke or drink, don't worry about whether they have the latest fashions, don't wear your clothes, don't need a gazillion dollars for university, and if they get pregnant you can sell the pups(Of course all of ours are spayed or neutered).

PeeS.  Who knew that Pip was soooo popular!   :-) We couldn't be happier to the money is going to such a wonderful family!

Tribute to the Pittie Pack

We have been humbled by the out pouring of support for Sandra and The Houston Pittie Pack. We can't even imagine the pain they are experiencing.   The love Sandra has shown for her 4 legged furry kids is amazing.  Nothing we can say can erase that pain.

We are praying for all of you and sending out love!

Thanks Momma Tea for the wonderful tribute.

If you haven't stopped by the Chip In site please do.  No contribution is too small.  When we come together we can do amazing things!

Heart Broken

I'm sure many of you have heard about the devastating fire that happened to the Houston Pittie Pack.

Mayzie and Puddles have created a Chip-In- Account to help the family with any expenses they may have. 

I know it's the holiday's but I'm sure we all have an extra few dollars we can spare.    Let's show them our love!

Below is the link where you can contribute.

Last But Not Least...Rescue Me Week Ends

Miss Mayzie you and your mama have to have about the biggest hearts ever.  All this focus on helping pets find their furever homes!   We haven't had time to get around to them all but we are going to try this weekend.

So far this week we featured BigDogsHugePaws, Rhodesian Ridgeback Rescue and Black Dog Rescue WY.    Been all about the senior dogs!

But we aren't a dog only household here.  So last but not least we are featuring the Protective Animal League in TX.  This is where daddy got our kitty brothers Tanner and Chaplin.  We looked for senior kitties but they didn't have any.  So we picked the next best thing, a pair of special needs kitties.
They are brothers, Forrest and Ricochet.   Follow the link to read more about them.

This is Richochet:


This is Forrest:


We think he looks like Chaplin:

What do you guys think?

Well both these guys have been diagnosed with cerebellar hypoplasia.   It means that their cerabellum was not completely mature at birth and gives them some coordination issues.  They think that either the mom got vaccinated or had an illness while she was pregnant.    This is a video of a kitty that has the condition.   

We believe that no matter what every pet deserves a loving home.   We have been looking at seniors and special needs dogs for our next one.    No matter what kind of animal you rescue you make a difference!

Rescue Me ... Part III

So you might or might not be getting a theme with out post for Miss Mayzie's Rescue Me Week.

So we found Cousin Ruger on Petfinder.  He came from Black Dog Rescue in Wyoming.   Now Ruger wasn't a Black Dog but they helped him til he found his furever home with Favoritest Aunt Jamie. 

So we wanted to pick a senior from their rescue too.  We went out and found Matilda!   She's not quite black but since neither was Cousin Ruger we figured it was a sign!   They don't have a direct link to her but you can go here and then page down til you find her.   Who knows maybe you will fine a new furever furend while you are there.

Better Late Than Never...Rescue Me Part II

Mom had a long day today and didn't have time til now to help us.  

So yesterday we picked the oldest senior at Big Dogs Huge Paws where we are looking for the newest member of the family. 

Well Jada, Lucky and I all came from the Rhodesian Ridgeback Rescue.   We wanted to share a couple of seniors from there.  They are both 12.  There is a boy and a girl.  They both are going to need the most perfect family for them. 

The first one is the boy.  His name is Mannikko.  You can click his name to read all about him. 

The second one is the girl.  Her name is Norma. You can click her name is to read all about her.   She reminds us of Jada. 

Please go see them and see if they can be the most perfect dogs for you!  :-)

We're Back...And Let's Rescue!

Ok so things here have been way past crazy.   The really big news is we moved.  We got some new neighbors at the old house and they didn't like us much.  Decided we were too big and loud.  Well Mom and Dad decided they didn't like them more so they found us a new place to live.  And guess what?!

It's on 2 1/2 acres.   It's like having our very own dog park every day!  We even have our very own bunnies to chase.  Here's a picture of just part of our yard!

Mom and Dad have FINALLY gotten pretty settled in and so maybe we will have more time to get around and see everyone and say hi.

So mom saw on FB that our great friend Miss Mayzie is doing a Rescue Me week in honor of her Grandpa J.    Well we just couldn't miss out on that.   Part of having more space means mom and dad have started looking for another friend for us.  Well one of the places we have been looking is a local rescue that specializes in giant breeds.  It's called BigDogsHugePaws.   Heck mom liked them so much that she signed up to volunteer with them.  

Now most of you know about our brother Lucky that crossed over the rainbow bridge a little over a year ago.   Well mom and dad got him when he was 11, way past the age that many people will think about adopting.   He was with us for 2 1/2 years and made us happy every day.  So mom decided to pick the oldest dog on Big Dogs website to feature today.    Adopt a senior pet, it's great for both of you!

Her name is Maddie, she's a 10 year old Brindle English Mastiff .  You can read all about her on their website.

Isn't she beautiful?!

We hope all of the wonderful pets that get featured find their furever homes!

This is pretty much what we do all day!

Hope things are wonderful for everybody!

Smiley Saturday

So we sent this to Miss Mazyie and suggested it for her Smiley Saturday.  But she said her bloggie is picky about what kinds of videos it can post.  So she said we should do it. 

We know we haven't been around much...darn pawrents and their super busy schedule. 

Here is the link to the video.  Doggies that Love Kitty Cats

The third set on the video is just like how our kitteh brother Petey used to be with our Angel Sister Roo. 

We hope you all have a great weekend with lots of fun in the sun!

How is everyone?!

We haven't completely fallen off the face of the earth.  Mom and Dad have been super busy.  :-(   They had some guys come and paint a bunch of the inside of the house.  Luckily we had really nice weather for most of the time and we got to hang out in the backyard.

We are going to try to get around to say hi!

Hope you are all having a relaxing weekend.

Any of My Blog Friends in Canada!?

Ok mom asked if she could take over my blog to see if she could make an off the wall request.

So here's my issue.  I bought some curtains in a Bed Bath and Beyond in the US.  They don't have them any more.  The Canadian BB&B does, but they won't ship to the US.  I have tried calling the stores directly and they still don't have any way to ship to the US.

So I'm wondering if one of you is in Canada and would be willing to let me use your address and then ship them for you to me.  I will be more than happy to cover all shipping costs plus a bonus for your time.

I know this is a bit crazy but I have searched all over and this seems to be the only place they are.

Thanks in advance for reading over my crazy idea!

It's BACK!

Yep, that's another dog in a cone.  Cuz'in Ruger had to have a lumpy bumpy taken off his back foot.  He's so super bendy that we had to get a Giant Mango sized cone so he couldn't reach his foot.  

Hope you all are having a good Saturday and staying warm!

Sending the Power of the Paw

One of our blog friends needs the Power of the Paw and we thought the best use for our blog today was to pass on some extra Power. 

Please stop by and pass on the power to Twix!

If you don't like the weather wait 4 days!

So Friday and Saturday here it was in the 60's sunny.  Great weather to go out and romp and play!  This morning it was -14 with -44 wind chill.  Zero reason to go outside.  Hope you all are snuggled with your people too!

Happy Saturday!

We had a pretty good day.  We just hung out at home in the morning but this afternoon it was just beautiful out so mom, dad and FAJ took us to the park to run!

Mom being goofy and laying on the ground taking pictures.

Jada all tuckered out. 

We got home and I was ready for my nap.

Hope you all had a good Saturday!

We Haven't Fallen Off the Face of the World

It's been a while since we posted.  Things have been busy for mom and dad.  They just ran away and left us for about 5 days.  Dad wanted to go and see his grandpa.   They had a really good visit!

FAJ came and stayed with us though so that part was good. 

Other than that things have been pretty boring around here.  It's super nice out today so we are going to try putting on our woeful faces and see if they will take pity on us and take us to the park to do Zoomies!

Hope you are having a good Friday and have fun weekend plans!

How Cool is This!

Mom saw an article about a new license plate the state of Colorado got on January 1st.

This is mom's new plate.  We love the message and find the last 3 characters funny!

Hope you are having a great Saturday!
