Sunday Funday – Walk for Lupus

Today my humom took me to a park that I have never been before! There was a special event today called

They hold it every year and this year my humom thought it would be a good idea to bring me so I could socialize with new people and new dogs.

We went early to help set up. Since I came along we couldn’t help with the food (darn!) but we got to mark the trail for the walk!

By the time we finished marking the trail, lots of people started coming in and signing in for the walk.

One family had an ADORABLE puppy Entlebucher named Bailey! My humom couldn’t stop going over to pet him. She is planning our next furry family member to be an Entlebucher so she was so happy she ran into one today! They are not a very common breed! We rarely see them around in Vancouver.

Mia: Mom, what are we waiting for…can we start the walk yet? 

Once everyone was registered we were ready to go!

These are my humom’s parents. They come out to support the BC Lupus Society every year!

Once the walk was done, everyone got a free lunch! My humom didn’t share her hotdog or chips but she gave me all the watermelon in her fruit salad! YUM!!! I love watermelon!

So many people wanted to say hi to me and pet me. My humom was so happy to see that people weren’t scared of me and she said I was such a good girl. I was very friendly and wanted to kiss everyone on their faces!  A couple of people even asked to take a picture of me because I looked so cute in my Lupus bandana!

I even helped sell some raffle tickets!

Cooper the Goldendoodle came to visit us. He was wearing a lupus bandana too!

There were lots of other dogs there but my humom was so busy helping out she only got to take pictures of a few of them.

All this socializing got me super tired. I tried really hard to stay awake but I ended up having a nice snooze in the shade by my humom’s feet.

On the way home I was trying to convince my humom I wasn’t tired so that we could go to the park but I don’t think I was very convincing….

Mia: Mom, really! I’m…not…tired….See?? I’m sitting up! I’m ready to go to the park! 

IMG_6935

She wasn’t convinced. But I guess she was right because I passed out as soon as we got home!

Hope you guys had a great weekend! Thanks for visiting!

Flashback Friday – Meet Molly

A couple of weeks ago I introduced you to my friend Duke. This week I would like to introduce you to my pawddy Molly!

The last time we saw each other was over a year ago as well! We met through Instagram! Molly’s human messaged my humom to see if we wanted to meet and play together! He thought that maybe I would get along with Molly since Molly can be selective with who she plays with.

Molly is a special girl because she only has 3 legs! While it’s unknown to her hudad how she lost her leg, it sure doesn’t stop her from having lots of adventures! You should check out her Instagram page! She has a really exciting life and I am very happy for her. She went through 3 different homes before finding her forever home with her hudad.

I was 6 months old in this picture. My ears were still too big for my head! BOL!

Molly’s hudad was really afraid that we wouldn’t get along but we got along great! We sounded like two piggies wrestling because we both snorted a lot. They nicknamed us Piggy and Piglet.

My humom just recently contacted Molly’s hudad to see if we wanted a Piggies reunion and he said yes! I can’t wait to see Molly again! I’ll be sure to post some new pics!

Thanks for visiting, come again soon!

See you again soon Auntie!

We went by humom’s parents’ house last night to say good bye to my Auntie.  She played fetch and threw my frizzy bee with me!

IMG_6518

She flew back to Boston this morning and I miss her already!

I got a little too excited afterwards and chewed up part of my frizzy bee. I couldn’t help it! It was pretty tasty though I must admit.

IMG_6558

My humom was not impressed with the proud look on my face.

Then we played with some sticks and I took a break and chewed on some.

I didn’t want to go home but Auntie still needed to pack and go to bed. I asked my humom if I gave Auntie my Bear-Bear would she stay?

But she said no, Auntie had to go back to Boston to go back to school. She said that Auntie will be back for Christmas though! I can’t wait to see her again!

IMG_6529

Have a safe flight Auntie! Good luck with your first year in med school! Love you!

Friday Fun – New toy!

With Auntie visiting us right now, my humom has been spending lots of time with her and their parents. Whenever there has been low tide, my humom will also invite Auntie to come since she doesn’t get to see low tide where she lives in Boston.

She wasn’t impressed with me jumping on her though…

As if it wasn’t exciting enough that Auntie was coming with us again to the beach, my humom GOT ME A NEW TOY!!!!! I think she called it a Frizz-bee. I don’t know why it’s called that it looks nothing like a frizzy bee? Nonetheless, it was super fun!

IMG_5772

I’m still trying to get the hang of it. I think the goal is for me to catch it while it’s still in the air. The wind makes it trickier too.

I still had lots of fun chasing it and running around in the water with it though! There were lots of dogs at the beach too that wanted to play with it! But I’m not very good at sharing toys, especially new ones so I just teased them all with it and got them to chase me.

IMG_5950

IMG_5951

I was having so much fun I didn’t want to go home!

When we got home my humom hoped that she could get some work done but I had other plans…hee hee

IMG_5920

IMG_5930

Doesn’t she know that treat toys are much more fun on humans’ laps?? Naps are way better too that way!

Happy Friday Friends! Have a great weekend!!

One Lovely Blog Award

I was nominated by Lucy and her humom for the One Lovely Blog award (Thank you! 🙂 ). You can visit them at Lexi the schnauzer & friends!

one-lovelyblog-award

One of the rules is to list seven facts about yourself so here goes!

  1. I LOVE FOOD. I am a very food motivated pup. I will stare you with very intense eyes and do whatever it is you want me to do so that I can get the food/treat.
  2. I am totally ball obsessed. I will ignore all dogs and people around me and stare at my humom until she throws the ball again.
  3. I stand behind my fur-brother Keiko while he eats his food because I try to steal some of it (but I’m not allowed because I’m on a raw fed diet and he eats kibble). But my humom lets me lick his bowl afterwards, you know..in case he missed a few crumbs.
  4. Even though I can’t fit, I still try to sleep in my humom’s lap.
  5. I love eating sticks and tall grass in the trails, seaweed and clam shells at the beach!
  6. I get more excited meeting new people than new dogs but I’m always down for a good chase with other dogs in the trails!
  7. People often wonder what my mix is because I look like a Staffordshire Bull Terrier but I’m pretty small in size. (Though for some reason I photograph big!)

IMG_2858

I am supposed to nominate 15 bloggers for this award. I’m still new to this so I’ll try and nominate as many furiends as I can! Some of you may already be nominated!  I nominate:

  1. Ruby from Ruby the Airedale. She’s the CUTEST Airedale pup I know! We love her blog so much my  humom wants an Airedale pup too! BOL!

2. The whole gang from Three Pups and a Couple of Kitties. This is such a fun group of pups and kitties (Belle, Bess, Bonnie, Lucy and Linus)! There’s always something going on in this household!

3. Harper Lee from thek9haperlee. This adorable Golden Retriever also shares her blog with her little sister Tallulah Bee. These silly pups are a lot of fun to follow!

4. Cricket and Butterfly from Rachel Mankowitz’ blog. These two adorable pups have got their own little antics goin’ on.

5. Millie and Walter from Bird Brains & Dog Tales. I love following these two! They always get to try out new treats, it makes me drool on my keyboard every time!

6. Wilhelmina from Critters in the Cottage. Now how could I not nominate my bestie! She lives in a cottage with her furbrother Duffy and 4 cats!

7. Tippy from Tippy Tales. I’ve only recently become blogging friends with Tippy and her mom but she’s got some amazing photos and adventures! Did I tell you she has these beautiful blue and brown eyes??

 Well…that wasn’t 15 nominations, I guess I need to make more blogging friends! (Some have already been nominated by others so I didn’t nominate you again) but I hope this is enough. If you were nominated by me and you’ve already gotten the award or…you don’t care for the award that’s okay!

Now for the rules:

  • Thank the person that nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  • List the rules
  • Display the award on your post of the award
  • List seven facts about yourself
  • Nominate 15 bloggers for this award and comment on one of their posts to let them know you have nominated them

 

Thanks for reading and participating! See you soon!

Scary Robot!

My humom brought home something suspicious last night…and let me tell you my suspicions were right!!

It looks like some kind of robot. It was sleeping all last night and then it woke up today!

My humom said it’s not a robot but a va-coooom. I have no idea what that means, it moves around like a robot to me! And boy is it noisy!

It wasn’t very friendly, it didn’t really say hello it just started moving around and bumping into things. It liked eating all of Keiko’s hair on the floor. What kind of robot likes to eat dog hair??

Mia: I don’t think I like this robot mom. 

It almost attacked me! But luckily I dodged it! Whew!

Keiko wasn’t scared by it at all! It even tried to attack him too!

Mia: Keiko watch out! It’s coming for you!

Keiko didn’t even flinch! I was pretty impressed!

IMG_5682

Mia: Mom, please make the scary robot stop…

Whew…the robot finally went to sleep. I hope it doesn’t wake up again. I’m so tired now I need to sleep in my humom’s arms. It makes me feel better when I can sleep next to her when I’m scared.

Do you guys have any scary robots in your house?
