Cookie Party with Eileen!

Yesterday my humom had some friend’s over a cookie party. My humom used to have a small side business where she made custom human cookies for parties and such. She had to stop because of the stress and long hours but decided she could teach cookie decorating classes instead!

These are some of last year’s Christmas cookie designs.

She always holds a couple of classes in December since her Christmas cookies are the most popular. Usually Howl-o-Ween  classes aren’t as popular so she never hosted one. This year however, she was trying to fundraise to Bring Linda Home so she asked her friends if they would like to sign up, and for a good cause!

My humom spent the last couple of nights baking up a storm! I wasn’t lucky enough for her to drop any on the floor 😦

Her good friend Auntie Sandra (Bruno’s humom) helped round up some friends and they all came over yesterday!

I was so excited to see all these new humans, they were all so nice and gave me lots of pets. They gave my furbrother Keiko lots of pets too. My humom was too busy making stuff for the class she didn’t take enough pictures! Hmph!

This little human is Eileen! You might have seen her in some of my past posts when I’m in the forest with Bruno! Isn’t she adorable??

She’s lucky she’s that adorable because if it were any other little human I’m not sure I would be willing to share my favorite spot on the couch or even my bed!

Mia: Mom….She’s in my favorite spot! Do I have to share? 

 

Mia: Yeah…I guess you’re pretty darned cute. I guess you can have my spot for now! 

I even shared my bed my humom’s bed when she got her die-pee changed AND when she took her nap! I really wanted to take a nap on the bed too but I knew it was more important for Eileen to get her sleep. My humom was very proud of me and said I was a very good girl.

Mia: I guess I’ll just lie here for now

Everyone was pretty focused on their cookie decorating. They were decorating for 6 straight hours! WOW!

These are some of their masterpieces!

With all the excitement of all these new visitors, I was ready to pass out when the last guest left!  I could barely stay away to write this post!

Mia: Mom, I’ll dictate you type!

Friday Fun with Friends!

Nothing beats a sunny day in the forest with my bestie Wilhelmina!…well except when we find a hidden beach and see my pal Bruno there!

IMG_9049

Wilhelmina and Duffy had never met Bruno before but you can tell he was really happy to make new friends! We all got along great!

We had a lot of fun exploring and sniffing around.

Wilhelmina is always the first to run into the water!

Of course when there’s beach and water, there’s driftwood and that means I will demand a game of fetch!

And what’s a day outdoors without our usual antics and running around?

Could we pass off as mountain goats? BOL!

We ended the day with obligatory posed group shots to please the humans *rolleyes*

I don’t look too happy in this photo because I didn’t like how I got pushed to the back behind the big dogs. How dare you put me in the back???

 

I decided to ruin the rest of the group photos with my frown. Heehee

Have a great weekend furiends!

My Apologies…

*UPDATE!* My humom figured it out! She realized what was missing to get her comments to go through on our pals that use Blogger.com! We are so happy now! YAY!

 

It has recently come to my attention that many of my comments this past year have not been showing up or coming through to my blogger pals that are on Blogger.com.

IMG_9231

This is my “I’m Sorry” face 😦

My bestie Wilhelmina said that since I have joined the blogging community, she has never seen any of my comments on her blog at Critters in the Cottage! I was shocked when she told me!…

..and also very sad!! I really enjoy reading about all my pals and I like leaving comments but I never realized that you never received them!

Sad face 😦

Can anyone suggest how I can fix this? Does anyone know why my comments wouldn’t come through? It seems as though bloggers from WordPress can see my comments (I use WordPress as well) but not anyone else?

Thanks for your help!

Happy National Black Dog Day!

It’s October 1st and that means it’s National Black Dog day! What a great pet holiday to bring awareness to all the black dogs out there and help break the stereotype!

IMG_8719 (1)

Why on earth would black dogs have their own holiday you ask? Did you know that black dogs are one of the hardest dogs to find homes for? It’s true! On top of that..if you’re a black dog and a bully breed (or any breed considered “dangerous”) finding a forever home could be an impossible mission!

FullSizeRender

Reasons for potential adopters overlooking black dogs could be superstitions, negative labels or fear. Lots of humans are scared of me when they see me walking in the off leash trails or even on the street when I am on leash! They look at me like I am going to jump up and attack them (maybe with kisses!..). I don’t know why anyone would think that, I have a few black dog furiends and they’re all great!

This is my pawddy Ayra!

Arya is 3 years old and was adopted at 12 weeks from a pibble rescue group. Her mom was a breeder dog and pregnant when she was rescued from a bad situation. Arya’s humom says Arya really rescued her from heartache after losing her last pup.

Arya loves belly rubs, ChuckIt balls, her dog and cat siblings and is scared of citrus fruit BOL! She is such a sweet lover and has never met a person she didn’t love!

Another Instagram pawddy of mine is Pyper! We’ve actually met at the beach before too! Pyper is super fun and sweet and we look like we could be sisters! She lives with her two humoms and a little fursister cat!

FullSizeRender

Pyper was an urgent foster and quickly became a foster fail. She was rescued from a high kill shelter in San Bernardino.  She has helped her family overcome their fear of dogs and is the reason two of her humans’ friends have adopted bully breeds. She also welcomes and helps teach all new foster dogs. Pyper doesn’t play much like fetch or tug and doesn’t like getting dirty but in her humans’ eyes she is perfect.  She came into their lives and stole their hearts!

Last but not least is my furiend Lucy!! She looks like my sister from another mister! We both have what’s called a reverse brindle but in certain lights we look black. I look a little more black than she does.

Just look at that adorable face!!!

Lucy has an interesting story of how she got adopted. Lucy’s humom saw a lady in the parking lot of Food City with Lucy and walked over to pet her. She found out that the Lady was on the way to the shelter to surrender her! Lucy’s humom offered to take her and promised the Lady that she would find a good home…and the rest is history! Lucy’s hudad jokes and says they got Lucy “in the peanut butter aisle at Food City, next to the jelly But they don’t carry dogs anymore” BOL!

sitting

Lucy is very loving and smart but her strongest trait is compliant. Once she understands what her humans want, she always tries to do that. Her love language is touch, and she also loves to be praised. She adores people and gets along with every dog she meets. She loves to run and play and wins over everyone she meets!

Check out her blog here!

 

Well, that’s all the introductions for now….I hope you enjoy–

Malou: AHEM!! I think you forgot about me??? 

Malou: Look at me! I’m black too! How come you’re not introducing me?  Just look at my beautiful black furs! Black cats like me have a hard time finding homes too! 

Mia: Oh well..um…today is National Black DOG Day Malou. You’re a cat….

Malou: Pfft…Big deal…I can bark! WOOF!!! See??

WOOF! WOOF!

BOL!! Okay, okay I’ll include you in this post…I’ll make you an honorary black dog today 🙂  (PeeS..National Black Cat Appreciation Day was August 17…but National Cat Day is October 29!)

 

I hope you all enjoyed reading about some of my furiends!  If you guys meet any black dogs today I hope you’ll stop and say hi to them! Maybe even give them a little pat on the head or an ear scratch!

Have a great week everyone!
