Fashion Friday

Happy Friday furiends! Christmas is just around the corner, I can’t believe it! I thought I would take this opportunity to show off my new Christmas collar in a Fashion Friday post! I love reading about my pal Duffy and his Fashion Friday posts I thought I’d give it a try! Hope he doesn’t mind! 😉

As you know…I have quite a collection of collars. Let’s just say my humom (and Wilhelmina’s humom) are a little obsessed with dressing us up in pretty collars and jackets. We’re known as the Best Dressed dogs of the Forest. BOL!

Well, last year, one particular collar caught my humom’s eye…

ugly sweater collar

…The Ugly Sweater collar from GrayHound Collections.

Unfortunately, by the time she was ready to order it, they were sold out!!!! She was devastated so this year she made sure she wouldn’t miss out and ordered it as soon as it became available. She also bought one for my bestie Wilhelmina because let’s face it…besties gotta have matching gear right???

What was even MORE exciting was that it was a perfect match with my Christmas sweater from Chilly Dog Sweaters!

Here’s a shot of my—

Nymeria: Hey Mia, watcha doing??

Mia: Uhhhh excuuse me do you mind??? I’m kind of in the middle of my Fashion Friday post here?? Stop photobombing!

Nymeria: Sheesh, chill out! Get it? CHILL out? Chilly dog sweater?? BOL! I’m so funny….

Sigh…Anyways..before I was RUDELY interrupted…Here is a shot of my reindeer sweater!

Here’s a close up of my Christmas collar!

Do you see the little reindeer on it? Cute huh?

With the weather getting colder, I need to start wearing thicker sweaters since I don’t have a lot of furs. This one is–

Nymeria: Hey are you done yet? Wanna go play??

Mia: Arrg……Nymeria! You interrupted my photoshoot again!

Nymeria: What? You’re STILL doing your stupid Fashion Friday post?? How many photos do you need to take? Can I be in this shot? CHEEEEESE!

Mia: Sigh…….FINE. I give up. Let’s just go play now.

Nymeria: YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have a great weekend everyone!

It’s my birthday!

Hi Guys!! Guess what?? IT’S MY BIRTHDAY TODAY!!!!

mia_bdayhat

Sigh…Mom, is this birthday hat really necessary? Why do you always have to humiliate me?

I turn two years old! My humom can’t believe I’m already two. She still calls me her baby (and says I still act like one sometimes…hmph!) She still misses my puppy days because I was so cute and tiny and much easier to handle. BOL!

I always celebrate my birthday with my BFF Wilhelmina because her birthday is only a couple of weeks before mine! If you missed her birthday post, you can click here!

My humom was being a big pain in the butt persistent about getting a photo of me and Wilhelmina with our birthday cake. I couldn’t understand why until I heard her tell Wilhelmina’s humom that she wanted to recreate the same photo every year so they could look back and compare all the years. Sheesh! Who cares! Just give us the cake!

Happy 2nd Birthday to us!

This is what we looked like on our first birthday!

first bday

Look how much smaller we were! Wilhelmina definitely grew a lot! We were small enough that we could fit in the photo without my humom standing on a stool.  But this year she had to get a small stool and stand higher to fit us in the picture because Wilhelmina is so tall!

My second year has been quite eventful!

I moved into a new place with my humom and furbrother Keiko…

Where to mom? I’m ready!

…Sadly, we had to say good bye to Keiko…(my humom isn’t ready to talk about it yet)…Keiko I miss you, even though we never played together I still miss your presence. You were an amazing big brother, thank you for being so patient with me and putting up with me. ❤

Rest in Peace Keiko (Nov 2003-Oct 2017)

Meet my ‘little’ sister Nymeria!

And now I have to share a lot of things with her…like my birthday treats!

My joint birthday party with Wilhelmina is this weekend but my humom wanted to me to have some treats to eat on my actual birthday so she got me these!

30CEAB5D-39BF-4572-BDB0-325CDF007533

They all look delicious!!!

018FA8DB-9421-48E0-B71B-D181419069E0

The obligatory balance on the nose trick…sigh…

My humom tried to get a group photo with us and the treats but Nymeria wasn’t being very cooperative so she gave up and just let us choose one.

Nymeria! Why won’t you look at the camera!

My humom was also making some dog treats for me us so she let us lick the spoon!! Yummmm! peanut butter!

Nymeria: What’s peanut butter? I don’t think I’ve ever had that before…

Mia: Try it! It’s AMAZING!!!!! 

Nymeria: Hmmm! You’re right! This stuff is delicious!

Gotta get every last bit!

Man..I’m beat…Who knew that eating treats, doing tricks and licking a peanut butter spoon would be so tiring!

Mischief Monday

Got the monday blues? No worries! Just roll in something stinky and all your troubles will go away!

I think I could hear my humom yelling something at me but I was too busy rolling. It takes a lot of concentration! You gotta make sure you REALLY get that smell in your furs or in my case…my sweater!

Nymeria: Hey what are you rolling in?? Can I have a turn???

Humom: Oh no you don’t! Don’t you dare Nymeria! I don’t need two stinky dogs in the car! 

Nymeria: That’s not fair! How come Mia gets to do it?

Humom: She doesn’t “get” to do it. She’s being a very naughty girl right now by not listening to me!

Nymeria: Oh…I see…she looks like shes having so much fun…Wish I could get just a little taste of it…

 

Nymeria: Hey Mia, are you done yet? Hurry up, I wanna go play!

Nymeria: C’mon let’s go! How much more can you roll in?? C’mon! C’mon!

Mia: Okay okay! Let’s go! Tag! You’re it! 

 

424ADF8B-0E62-4D30-9CA0-6A529B39B281

What? I wasn’t doing anything….I was NOT rolling in stinky stuff. Nope nope…and even if I did….How could you stay mad at this face?…Amiright????

 

Heehee…

 

Did you guys get into any trouble today?? 😉

Tongue Out Tuesday

Hi furiends!

It’s another installment of Tongue Out Tuesday and—

Nymeria: Hey wait for me! I want to be part of  Tongue Out Tuesday! 

Mia: Sigh….well hurry up!! Geez, why do little sisters always have to be part of EVERYTHING you do….

Nymeria: Okay, I’m coming! I’m coming! 

ANYhoo, as I was saying…it’s another installment of Tongue Out Tuesday on this cloudy day, but that doesn’t stop us from having fun!

My humom says that this is probably one of her favorite TOTs because I have a goofy derpy face and my ears are flopping everywhere. What do you think??

Have a happy Tuesday! Keep those tongues hanging out!

Sunday Funday!

The sun decided to come out for us on our walk with Wilhelmina, Avalon and Duffy today! At first we didn’t know if it was going to rain so the humoms made us wear all our rain gear.

But as soon as the sun came through the clouds, off came the jackets! Of course this meant more photo taking. Sigh….Can we ever just go out for a walk without a photoshoot???

In their defense, the humoms said they just wanted to show off all our beautiful colors and markings. Well in that case…okay FINE…but just a few! Then we’re off to play!

Mia: Are we done yet???

 

Hope you guys had a good weekend!

Forced Sister Bonding

My humom is starting to worry a bit that Nymeria and I won’t get along because I’m still a little mean to her when we play outside, or if I try to play with her indoors she ignores me. We don’t like sleeping close to one another and I still get a bit protective over MY humom.

Nymeria has been with us (and in this country) for 4 weeks now. She’s made some progress with other things like potty training, and socializing at doggy daycare but our humom thought that her and I needed some good sister bonding time. Blah.

She thinks that playing fetch together isn’t good enough (because it becomes competitive) and that we need a nice long walk where we can both run free. She decided that the jetty would be the best place to take us (the forest has too many little animals and smells, Nymeria would never come back). We usually go to the jetty with my bestie Wilhelmina and Avalon and Duffy but this time it was what I call “forced sister bonding time”.

The walk started off okay I guess…Nymeria got excited about a bunch of birds in the water.

Nymeria: Hey Mia! What are those white things in the water?? How can we get down there?? I wanna go see!!

Mia: Relax, they’re just birds…probably just lookin’ for fish. We’re not allowed down there. Are you going to be this annoying the whole walk??

 

Nymeria: I’m not annoying! You’re annoying!

1F8EBB64-18B5-4FA4-8CC9-D8D077746A81

Nymeria: You pick on me all the time!

170FBE62-D881-4BA3-A87C-23F41A27D9AD

Mia: That’s what big sisters are for!

049D652B-0009-473B-8778-F7A740F97D49

Nymeria: Have you looked in the mirror lately?? I’m “bigger” than you!

8D5B887A-6DB9-4F30-B328-EEF24E00D6DD

Mia: Fine, then that’s what OLDER sisters are for! 😛

 

Mia: I’m going to go find something stinky to eat or roll in

Nymeria: Hey wait up! I want to come!

Mia: Hey! What’s that over there?

Nymeria: Where? What? Oooo…I think I see something!

Mia: I saw it first! It’s mine!

B596E6D5-DC51-4303-9AF1-AAB73D9134DC

It’s a fish’s head!!! Jackpot!

A822D388-D5A3-418B-8C8A-F08EED834015

Nymeria: I’ve never had one of those. Is it any good?

 

9E735B1F-E623-4846-B8B5-21ED564E9935

Mia: Are you kidding?? They’re delicious!! Er..I mean…no they’re alright…save your palette for something tastier. I’ll take this one. 

 

Humom: Uh no, none of you will take this one. I’m throwing it away!

DF144843-322A-4C53-950A-C7D13F63CE5D

Mia: Sigh FINE…I’ll go look for something else before you can stop me!

Humom: No you will not. You will sit pretty and take some photos with your sister.

On our way home, Nymeria was totally passed out on the car.

Tongue Out Tuesday!

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Tongue Out Tuesday post! You can bet that anytime I’m playing fetch with my humom my tongue is going to be hanging out!

5B83A2E9-953A-46E0-9B69-03208955E967

Nymeria likes to get in on the action too but it’s annoying when she doesn’t bring back the ball! Then *I* have to go get it sigh….My humom says to give her some time for her to get the hang of the game. All Nymeria likes to do is chase the ball and play with it.

My humom says that I’ve been really good about sharing my ball. When I know that Nymeria will get to the ball first I just let her get it and I’ll come back  and wait for the next throw.

Can you see her in the background? See how she doesn’t even come back to our humom? Good thing she’s got her long leash attached to her so my humom can pull her back!

I’m the good furchild! I always come back!

We’re taking a break in the shade. The nice cool grass on my belly sure feels nice!

Friday Forest Fun with Friends!

We’ve been lucky here in Vancouver where even though the temperatures have dropped a bit, we haven’t gotten any snow that has stuck to the ground and caused chaos in the city. (Vancouverites are wimps when it comes to snow compared to our East Coast friends).

Nymeria got to meet my buddy Bruno for the first time. She didn’t get to run and play with us though. My humom says it’s still too soon to let her run loose in the woods, she might not come back!

The other black dog you see in the photos is Todd, he’s Bruno’s friend. The humoms couldn’t get all of us to sit still for a photo so all they got were black blurs. BOL!

Hope this sunny dry weather lasts a little bit longer before the dark cold winter days come!

TGIF!! Happy Friday Furiends!

My first trip to the Vet!

Hi Guys! Nymeria here. The other day my humom took me to this really scary place called the vet! Mia said she’d come with me for moral support but really I think she just wanted to come to show off! Yeah…that’s right…show off. She LOVES going to the vet. She thinks it’s some kind of social event where she can say hi to everyone and get treats.

She kept running around and jumping up and down off the bench.

I, on the other hand, was looking for the nearest exit!

Nymeria: Is this how I escape? Mia, help me get out of here!

 

1C84F350-A578-4E43-AA0D-76971D3B1308

Mia: Oh relax you big baby. The vet office is fun!!! Let’s get this party started! Where are the treats!

3A9AE842-7DEA-424A-9AF5-BF210CBFAD71

Mia: Mom, why is Nymeria so scared? Doesn’t she see how fun the vet is? Everyone is so nice and gives us yummy things to eat! 

35488A0F-88B2-452A-933C-3865AB76520E

Nymeria: Is this what you call fun?? What is she doing to my ear??

Mia: Relax…Dr. Ong is just making sure your ears are clean and there are no infections. I love Dr. Ong! She’s the best! She’s so nice and caring and gentle. We’re super lucky to have her as our dog doctor! 

4F5D6DBB-8DC8-4537-9DD4-AF94F4D9B179

Nymeria: Now what is she about to do????

Mia: Just chill man! She’s about to check your teeth and gums!

 

Nymeria: OMD! Now what is she doing?? Mom I’m scared!

Mia: Calm down…She is just checking all your muscles, joints and bones.

9C8B70DB-2346-4E1D-A105-31AA0577A2E9

Mia: See? It’s all over now! That wasn’t so bad was it??

89B362FF-32C8-4068-AD7A-F97F99240C47

Nymeria: I don’t know about you but I’m exhausted from all that! GOOD NIGHT!

 

Overall, the vet visit went pretty well. My humom said I was very brave and by the end of the visit I was comfortable enough to take treats from everyone. There was even a vet tech in the backroom that wanted to come in and meet me. I guess Mia and Keiko are pretty famous at this place. When they heard of a new addition to the family they all wanted to meet me.

Mia said she was proud of me too and shared the bed with me a little bit the next day.

IMG_1078b

What do you think of the vet? Are you more cautious like me? or a social butterfly like my fursiblings Mia and Keiko?

Have a great weekend furiends!
