The One with the Business

So much happened while I was away!! So this post is LONG. I mean LONG. You'll probably need a drink break AND a potty break! I promise tomorrow will be a more manageable length. Aunt Katie arrives!!

First and foremost, I want to let my Arizona two-legger friend, Cathie, know that I'm thinking about her and about her two Cocker Spaniel babies, as they mourn the loss of Jamie, a mischievous but loving Cocker girl. Jamie went to the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. I know her family misses her but I an sure there was a party up there last night as old friends and new welcomed her as she begins her wait for Ms. Cathie!

Don't forget to check out the auction that JD and Max set up for Shelby! I sent our auction item info off to them yesterday. Since mom is.. well... let's just say she's not reknowned for her skills in the kitchen... I offered up a cook book. It's not just any cookbook. It's a cookbook to teach our two leggers to make all kind of yummy treats for us pups! Check it out! And look at the other items. There are some really great things and all for a great cause - Shelby!! I placed a bid on one of Lola's items, a super cute harness for my little sister.

Another cool thing JD and Max has done is borrowed his mom's green papers to sponsor a doggie for me at Dog's Trust for Paw it Forward!! My sponsored doggie packet arrived while we were at the beach. Check this out! Isn't Jason handsome?? Click on the photos to make them bigger.

Since JD and Max were so generous, I'd love to Paw it Forward! If you'd like to play, please let me know in the comments! I'd like to use my allowance to donate $15 to an animal charity of your choice in your name AND send you a surprise gift! The first two furends that wish to play... are my PIF participants!

I thought of my blogger furends a lot while away. First some of the doggies there looked like some of you and then... there was this...

When I got home, I received an award from Those Elgin Pugs and Sprinkles! Aren't they great?

1. I love sleeping in with mom using papa's warm space.
2. I love breakfast, especially with a bit of egg on top as a treat.
3. I love playing in the yard on a warm spring day.
4. I love playing in the snow on a cold winter day.

10. I love sneaking up to cuddle with papa in his chair.

3) Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and you think are fantastic.

I think all of my blogger furends are fantastical!! But as I looked through blogs I noticed this award seemed to have made the rounds while I was away so… I open this up to everyone!! I think you’re all fantastic so if you haven’t received this award yet, please accept it!!


  1. OH NO! Is that SpongeBob? I think I am going to be sick....I have to go and lay down....

  2. Mom is laughing like crazy over that Spongebob picture! She says she's so sick of hearing about Spongebob at school that she'd enjoy seeing that a great deal.

    That was a very cool Paw It Forward that JD and Max did! They're generous fellows for sure! We've played before, so we'll let somebody else have a shot at it!


    P.S. We're very sorry for Jamie's family!

  13. Hi Zona,

    We're back from the kennels now and are just stating to catch up on everypup's blogs!

    We're so sorry to hear about Jamie - that Rainbow Bridge takes too many pups and kitties, but we reckon the partying and playing and romping that goes on there must be out of this world!

    We're glad you liked our PIF - Jason is such a handsome dude! Thanks for doing such a great post about it! We loved the photos of you touching noses with him on your fridge, so sweet!

    We got this award from a few pals too but have been really bad about posting it - we really must get round to it. We loved reading your list!

    Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.
