Hey, Everybody...

Hope you all had a Wonderful Holiday!!!
I swear, I didn't touch the "Special Stuffies"...

**************************
I do have a little Sad News...

My First Best Friend, Tigger crossed over the

Rainbow Bridge on Christmas Nite...

Mom says, even though we will miss her sooo much,
it was her time to go...

She was almost 20 years old & she was very tired...

We know she is running & playing like a kitten

& enjoying every minute...

RIP my Dear Friend...I Love You & I will Miss You!!!

There's a Tree in My Living Room...

What's that all about...
There's alot of new Stuffies, too...

Mom says they don't belong to me...

Little does she know...


Anyway...Just an update:


I know I have been missing for awhile...My Mom started
going to work two times on some days instead of just once...
She says my cousin (her nephew) needed a little help at
his Physical Therapy Clinic so she decided
she should lend a hand...

Now, I'm all for helping others, but now somedays she is
gone from Breakfast to way after Dinner Time...I actually
have to wait a hour or two at nite to eat dinner...

That's just not right!!!

Anyway, I miss all you guys, but my Mom has what she
calls priorities...Excuse Me: I should be her
#1 Priority...Don't you all agree??

Talk to you again soon...

Hope you are all getting lots of attention & treats &
getting your Dinner on Time...

Changes...

I've been sitting in my Look Out Spot alot lately...

I've noticed alot of changes going on...

Lots of New Colors out there...
I looked down....
And noticed even the flowers in
My Front Yard Flower Beds look different...
So...I told my Mom it was time to investigate...
And there was no time to waste...
The trees aren't really green anymore...
And it looks like the leaves are falling
all over My Back Yard...
Mostly out by my Favorite Squirrel Hunting Tree...
Do you think the Evil Squirrels have something
to do with this???
I've got my eyes out for them...
If they're behind this...They're Toast!!!
In the meantime, I'll just enjoy the New Colors...

They really are kind of pretty....

Oh...And, wait til you see the

Ridiculous Howl-O-Ween Costume my Mom got me...

That's for my next post...

My Mom got this in an Email today...
We know alot of you have seen it already, but its worth sharing again...

A Dog's Purpose? (from a 6-year-old).

Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.

I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home..As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.

The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker 's family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.

The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker's Death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives.

Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, ''I know why.''

Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I'd never heard a more comforting explanation. It has changed the way I try and live.

He said,''People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life -- like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?''

The Six-year-old continued,''Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long.''

Live simply.

Love generously.

Care deeply.

Speak kindly.

Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.

Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.

Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy.

Take naps.

Stretch before rising.

Run, romp, and play daily.

Thrive on attention and let people touch you.

Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.

On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.

On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.

When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.

Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

Be loyal.

Never pretend to be something you're not.

If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.

When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.

ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY!


How True this is!!!

So...Sorry, no pictures of Me today...

Here's some pictures from my Mom's trip...

She calls this Times Square...
And, she say M&M's come in ALL colors in
New York City...
She met up with My Favorite Yankee...

I didn't know Derek was such a big guy...
My Mom said it was a really long walk, but
they finally made it to the show...
I guess this is why I couldn't go...

That thing looks scary....
Or maybe I couldn't go, cuz of all this traffic...
I did have a good time with My Dad, though...

We couldn't take any pictures, cuz Mom
took the camera...

Oh, & I found out he does know where my treats are...

OK...Now I'm gonna read all your Blogs & catch up...

Should I hide it or eat it??

time on Facebook...She read all your suggestions from

my last post & says she will make sure she takes care of

My Blog first, & then if she has any time left she can

Stealing Food...

Hi...I gotta say, My Secretary has been more on
top of things lately...

This is one of those pictures that never made it
on My Blog, but I think it's funny....
gave me this Award...
Here are the Rules...Why are there always Rules???

When accepting this award, you must blog about the food you have stolen when your humans were not watching...If you have never stolen any food, you must be a really good pup!! You can accept this yummy tray of cookies as your reward! Next add the logo of this award to your Blog (optional), then nominate at least 5 other furry blogs and let them know by leaving a message on their Blogs...

OK...So this is where my Mom always puts her drink...
She likes Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwichs now &
then and always has a glass of milk when she eats one...

She should never leave the milk unattended!!!
See why?? Me & Tigger used to wait til Rosco wasn't
looking & steal his food...

I always ran before he caught me...

Tigger is getting old & wasn't quite as fast as me...
Rosco never minded, though...He's such a Good Boy!!
OK...I'll pass this Award on to:

Cuz I bet they have all stolen food...

& Lorenza...Cuz I wonder if she ever has..

Have Fun!!
