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!!!

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).

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.
