Selfie Sunday!

It’s the end of another week and we’re joining The Cat on my Head Sunday Selfie Blog Hop! Duffy and I were trying to get a good selfie for today’s post but as you can see Wilhelmina wanted to be a part of it too! I can’t leave out my bestie now can I?


She photobombed us!

Wilhelmina, “You guys forgot about me!”


Wilhelmina, “Wait! Let me try to take one of the three of us!”

I think she might need a bit more practice!


Happy Sunday everyone! Thanks for visiting!




Friday Favorites: Sticks, sticks, STICKS!!!!

It’s Friday!…The beginning of the weekend where I get to do a lot of my favorite things! So I thought I would take this opportunity to share some of these favorite things every Friday!

Let’s start with…STICKS!!!! So of course one of my favorite past times is running in the forest but one of the best parts of running in the forest is…yup, you guessed it….STICKS!!! You can find all kinds of sticks, there’s even fresh ones still attached to the trees! My humom doesn’t let me get those ones though…only the ones I find on the ground.

Now…I’m no expert at stick finding…yet! I’m still pretty new to this world, I mean I’m only 15 months old but I think so far I’ve found some pretty good sticks.

I’m still learning how to balance the big ones but I’ll get there!


Did I also mention I like retrieving them in the water?


Well that’s all for now…I’m going to go chew on this yummy stick now!


Thanks for visiting! Come back soon okay?

Throwback Thursday

It’s another Throwback Thursday but I thought I would share the limelight today and go back to when it was just my humom and my furbrother Keiko. I’m usually not this generous because I like to be the center of attention pretty much ALL THE TIME…but hey…I guess you could say I’m maturing a bit??…NAHHH who are we kidding???

Ok ok…back to Keiko….look at this little dude! What cute little furball…my humom got him when he was 4 months old wayyyy back in 2004.


Unfortunately back then she didn’t have a very good camera or cell phone camera so she doesn’t have as many puppy pictures of Keiko as she does now with me!


What a happy little pup! He was 6 months in this photo! So fluffy!

Keiko’s favorite pastime is napping in the sun.


My humom says he was a very mischievous little boy. He was always doing something he wasn’t supposed to be doing…like digging in the garden or hopping onto the rocks in the pond or escaping from the backyard. But she said he never chewed on furniture or shoes or delicious paper in the garbage like I did…he doesn’t know what he’s missing out on!

Keiko is very popular with my humom’s friends. So popular in fact that he was asked to be the ring bearer at a friend’s wedding! Doesn’t he look so handsome?



Can you believe he’s 13 years old??? Lookin’ good old man!


He doesn’t have the energy to come with us and Wilhelmina on our forest walks anymore. I think he prefers to rest at home where its nice and quiet. I let him snuggle with my toys. 🙂


Well, that’s all for now! Thanks for visiting! Hope you liked learning a little bit about my furbrother! Come visit again soon!

Ugh is it Monday already?? Why do the weekends go by so quickly? I need another 5 minutes…maybe 20…I’m still recovering from the weekend!


My humom always tries to pack a lot of fun things for me on the weekends since she works during the week. As usual we always head into the trails with my bestie Wilhelmina and her furbrother Duffy! He’s a Pomeranian Yorkshire Terrier Mix.

We also met a super adorable English Bulldog puppy! I actually didn’t pay much attention to him because I was too busy chewing on a delicious stick. My humom however was so smitten over him she was taking lots of photos and videos. He name is Bubba and he’s 4 months old. I mean, I GUESS he’s pretty cute…but he’s got nothin’ on me!


This weekend was the last class for our Agility class so we had a lot of extra fun!

Here’s a couple of videos! I apologize if the quality is low, I’m still trying to figure out all this blogging/uploading stuff! (If you’re on the computer you can change the quality to HD by clicking the settings icon on the bottom corner.)

Flying through the tire!

Running on the dog walk! Wilhelmina cheated!

By the end of the day we were so tired we were completely passed out in the car!

Hope you guys have a fun filled weekend like we did! Thanks for visiting!


Selfie Sunday

Do I still have time for a Selfie Sunday post?? I’ve been having too much fun this weekend I almost forgot to post something!

One of the challenges of having a tall best friend is trying to fit in a selfie!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!



Happy FriYAY!

Happy Friday everyone! or as I like to call it fri-YAY!!!! I get excited when it’s Friday because it means the weekend is here and my humom is going to take me somewhere exciting with my BEST FRIEND IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD! Oh wait…you don’t know who my BFF is? Well then I guess today’s post will be about her and how we met and became best friends!


This is Wilhelmina, the Standard Poodle! Her full name is Contessa Wilhelmina Starlyn Raspberry Rose. Quite a mouthful isn’t it!


We met when we were about 5 months old. Every once in a while we would run into her and Daddyman in the neighborhood and we connected instantly! We would play right on the spot but we never got to play for very long since my humom had some place to go or Daddyman and Wilhelmina were on their way out.

Then one day, me and my humom walked by Wilhelmina’s house when her humom was gardening outside. Wilhelmina’s humom was surprised to hear that we had already met Wilhelmina before! We were on our way to the trails and Wilhelmina’s humom wanted to join so she quickly put away her gardening things and came along! That was the beginning of a great friendship between the four of us!

Since our birthdays are only 2 weeks apart we had a combined first birthday! We will definitely have more combined birthday parties in the future!


We even had matching howl-o-ween costumes!


We get to run in the forest almost everyday together! I love my best friend so much, we always have so much fun together. Our humoms don’t know what they would do if we didn’t have each other!

Throwback Thursday!

Time for a throwback! For my first throwback thursday post I’m going to go back to my puppy days! Boy was I tiny! I was only 5 lbs when my humom first got me (at 9 weeks). My humom always says how much she misses my puppy days when I would tire out really fast and sleep but she sure doesn’t miss the potty training!


Just look at those “innocent” eyes….


I was so cute she couldn’t resist letting me sit in the front seat! I’m too big now so I have to sit in the back 😦 but I guess it’s for my own safety!


Being a puppy sure is hard work! Time for a nap!

Thanks for visiting! Come back soon! 🙂
