FEBRUARY 20TH IS LOVE YOUR PET DAY!






HEY GUYS! 🐾  

Today is "Love Your Pet Day"..... yeah!!! To celebrate, my Mom says that you should go out and get your furry friend, a new toy, or special treat, or just stop what you are doing and spend some time playing with them! When my Mom listens to music and she hears one of her crazy favorite songs, she sings and dances with us! I bet she'll do that today, not to mention maybe a special treat? Get the hint...Mom! Anyways my Mom wrote this poem in honor of this wonderful day for me and Ciena. 


DOGGIE PLAY TIME

My love for my dogs is beyond measure,
For you see these two are truly my treasure.

They love and comfort me day in and day out,
I would be lost without them for there is no doubt.

Their crazy ways make me grin,
It’s time for fun when their antics begin.

Bring on the music they seem to say,
For you know it’s time for all of us to play.

They love to dance with me as they wiggle their butts,
I am grateful that these two silly dogs are really my mutts!

And sometimes we roll around and wrestle on the floor,
Now who could ask for anything more.

And when we are tired and when we stop,
It’s only because we are ready to drop.

I cherish each moment when we have time to play,
For such fun as this should happen every day.

You see each day is a blessing from above,
For my dogs lift my spirits every day with their love. 


So have a great day with those who love you and remember till next time, it's paws up and high five!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CIENA GIRL!!!!!!!!









HEY GUYS!🐾



Today is my little sister, Ciena's, birthday and she is six years old. I bet you couldn't tell by her picture....Ha!



In celebration of her birthday, Mom and Dad gave us a special treat "Frosty Paws" and sang happy birthday to the girl!!!!!

Even though I made that goofy face to make her laugh, it didn't work. She said she doesn't want people to know that she's an old lady and I said that she's just fine! Oh well, she'll get over it, cause she is beautiful and my baby sister! Anyways.... a good time was had by all!!!

My Holiday Wish Is.........














HEY GUYS!🐾

Long time no talk to you! Me and Ciena had a great summer and we hope that you did too! 

I know that the Holidays are just upon us, but I want to tell you that today is National Mutt Day, also know as National Mixed Breed Dog Day. You probably don't know this, but 80% of my fellow canine companions in the shelters are mixed breeds. So many of them need a forever home, but sadly so many of them never see one. So my Christmas wish is for shelter pets everywhere to have a loving home like me and Ciena have!  

Please read my Mom's poem in honor of this day, as it is a plea for ALL shelter dogs to have a forever home.

For The Love of a Shelter Dog

I am a shelter dog who watches you walk by,
I wag my tail and hope that you will give me a try.

You see, I am not a bad dog who deserved to be left here,

Unfortunately, it is just that no one wanted me near.
I may be young, or I may be old,
I may be shy, or I may be bold.
I may have been neglected or hurt in some way,
But I carry no grudge for I live in the moment each day.
I feel as though I have been here for so long,
Please take me to your home, for with you I belong.
I promise to guard you and keep you safe,
If only you would have a little faith.
I will work to be good and love you so much,
For I truly need your gentle touch.
Please don’t walk away and leave me behind,
Adopt me today for it would truly be kind.

So maybe you could visit your local shelter this month and find your perfect companion. If you are unable to adopt, you can donate your time at a shelter, or provide food, supplies or financial support (every dollar helps)! 

Till next time it's paws up and please remember my shelter friends.

August 26 - NATIONAL DOG DAY - IT'S ALL IN A STORY!

HEY GUYS!🐾


             Today is National Dog Day! Here is a great article that my mom wrote for her community newspaper in our honor for today. I hope that you like it, cause me and Ciena do!
As a pet parent of two beloved dogs, I am writing this month about National Dog Day, which is celebrated on August 26, each year. This special day was created by the National Dog Day Foundation to celebrate our canine companions, and to rescue dogs from abuse and homelessness. President George W. Bush, a dog owner himself, sent a letter to the foundation in support of National Dog Day and its goals. The foundation’s motto is, "Saving 10,000 Dogs - One Day at a Time".

Not only do our dogs provide us with love and companionship, but they also play an important role as service and/or therapy dogs. Trained dogs guide and assist people who have visual and hearing impairments. They aid physically disabled individuals who have mobility issues. Some dogs are trained to be medical response dogs for those with serious health conditions, such as epilepsy, diabetes or heart arrhythmias. Further, research studies prove that dogs can provide invaluable emotional support and companionship for children with autism, actually helping them with social interactions and relationships. Other dogs are be trained for life-saving search-and-rescue work, or for detection of bombs, firearms, or drugs.

Our pets here in our community may not be service or therapy dogs, but I believe that they are an important part our life. Dogs improve our mental health by reducing our stress when we stroke them and play with them; they keep us fit when we go for walks; and they provide us with a sense of security. Dogs are not judgmental-- they love us unconditionally. Their crazy antics can make us laugh and raise our spirits. I chuckle when I think of my two large dogs taking over our bed forcing us to sleep on the edge all night. I wouldn’t trade them for the world, for they bring joy to my life.

I wish all dogs could have a forever-home where they are safe and loved-- no dog should ever be homeless or abused. Let’s celebrate our loving, faithful companions on this special holiday. Let’s hope that others will be inspired to open our hearts and homes to help an abandoned dog, for so many are in need.

THEY PUT ME ON A DIET AGAIN!!!!!

       HEY GUYS!🐾




My Dad took me to my Vet's office this past Monday for my annual check-up, my shots and my heartworm blood work (ouch)!!! The Vet also checked the lump on my side (they aspirated it last year and tested it and thank God it was not cancerous), but he keeps an eye on it. He told my Dad that it was ok, just fat! Then he checked a new bump that just popped up on my nose and he wasn't concerned, but said to my Dad to watch it because if it gets too big they can do surgery and remove it. Then he had the nerve to tell my Dad that us Labs get weird bumps all the time and they are not usually harmful! The Vet said that I would have to go to sleep for the procedure and they could clean my teeth at the same time because they need it! OMG!!!! The Vet told my Dad that my teeth should be brushed and Dad replied "his Mom tries all the time, but he gives her the gnarly face and closes his mouth. But she keeps trying!" Then he had to tell the Vet that my brat of a Sister, Ciena... LOVES to have her teeth brushed and she even has a dog tooth-brush of her own! She is such a show-off that it's not funny!!!!!!

Now the worst part of this visit is when they weighed me, because I am now 10 to 15 pounds over weight! OH CRAP, HERE COMES THE DIET AGAIN!!!!!  You see about two years ago, Mom and Dad put me on a special diet food that they got from the Vet cause I was 20 pounds over weight and I slimmed down to a trim 84 pounds. Then I guess when Mom bumped up my food quantity to maintain my weight, along with the treats and the constant begging at the table, I GOT FAT AGAIN! SO HERE WE GO, I THINK I AM GOING CRY AND ACTUALLY I AM WHINNING ALOT MORE NOW THAT I AM BACK ON MY DIET!!!!
BEFORE!

May is National Pet Month!


HEY GUYS!🐾

Long time no write to! You see I have been busy sleeping, eating and playing with my sister, Ciena, I like to chase her around a lot ha ha!. Oh...….what a dog's life!!!  I wanted to let you know that May is NATIONAL PET MONTH, yeah! It is a month to celebrate the wonderful benefits that we bring to your lives and vice versa. The goal of NATIONAL PET MONTH is to support pet adoption, promote all the benefits of pet ownership and to let you know about all the great service professionals that work with us like all the rescue groups, veterinarians, groomers and many others!!! But most importantly it is a month to recognize the value and contributions that we make to society as hard working companion animals! I think that the love for all of us pets, whether we are dogs, cats, or whatever should be celebrated year round!

I truly love my sister, Ciena!

Till next time, it's paws up and high five!
 Happy National Pet Month

April 22, 2019 - Earth Day












Hey Guys!🐾

Happy Earth Day🌎!! This event was first celebrated on this day in 1970. At that time, my mom was a young "pup" in high school. She said that she remembers that day like yesterday! The weather was perfect for that April day for it was warm and sunny. She said that the whole school walked out after lunch and sat on the football field to show their support for Earth Day! (P.S. no one got in trouble for this either!) Here is a little background information regarding Earth Day that mom found on the Wikipedia Website:

"Earth Day is an annual event celebrated on April 22. First celebrated in 1970, Earth Day now includes events in more than 193 countries. Worldwide, various events are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection.The first Earth Day celebrations took place in two thousand colleges and universities, roughly ten thousand primary and secondary schools, and hundreds of communities across the United States. More importantly, it "brought 20 million Americans out into the spring sunshine
for peaceful demonstrations in favor of environmental reform."

Mom may be an old "pup" now, but she says that she will always fondly remember that day! Sometimes I think that she wishes she could go back to that time period for look how she dressed us up!!!! Gotta have that hippie look going with the beads...…..just missing the jackets and/or vests with the fringe and the head bands, LOL!



Till next time, it's paws up and high five!!!
