New domain +awards+ kirby’s favorite spot

A lot of really fun things have happened so far this week. I got a domain name (yay), and some lovely awards. In which I get to answer some fun questions to go along with it all! I have been very sick all this week so Kirby doesn’t know what to do with me lying in bed the whole day, safe to say he is very bored. But yet, even with me being so he still only strays a few yards away from me each time.

CLICK ME IM REMY

And the wonderful bloggy pals who gave it to me are Remy, from onebluedog,

and Milo from Milo’s mad life!

Now they created questions for me to answer so I intend to do just that. Starting with Remy (who is

A.K.A Blue to me 🙂

1. How did you know your pup/bunny/person was the right one for you?

I knew I guess right when I saw him. I was waiting in the foyer for him, then all of a sudden here comes this cute little white ball of fluff (literally). He was pretty much the cutest thing I had ever set eyes on. His sweet personality ( his crazy side hadn’t come out yet XD), and his innocent little demeanor just literally melted my heart. He was the first dog ever to be truly mine. I had saved up money for him throughout the last couple years, had researched all about puppies so I knew what I was getting into, so too finally realize I had my dog, was an amazing feeling.

2. What is your most favorite of all treats you have ever tasted?

Kirby’s favorite treats are greenies, or any chicken pieces I use for training.

3. Does anyone actually enjoy a bath? I mean really…

Kirby: Ummm….next question

No kirby does NOT like baths.

4. What is the most exciting adventure you ever had?

Well for Kirby and I we went to a annual festival my town had. There was so many people and other dogs, it was the first time Kirby had had so much interaction with so many things at once. He was petted by little girls, sniffed bums with other dogs, and saw a horse even….which he proceeded to bark at. It was quite the day for sure.

5. What kind of music do you like the most? You can say a radio program instead if you like it better

Kirby: “what is it with this music? My mom listens to Lana Del Rey and The Script all the time, telling me how great they are, but to me its just jumbled up noise. I mean I already have enough problems trying to understand this ‘english’ these humans speak,now your throwing in music?!

Now on to Milo’s questions:

Where is the one place you would love to visit?

The one place I would like to visit is Hawaii! It would be even awesome-er if there was some kind of hotel that allowed pets and had a doggy daycare so I could bring my little buddy along!- Yes I realize this is something a crazy dog lady says, don’t get me wrong though with or without that doggy extra I am still packing my bags!

What are your hobbies?

My hobbies are…..blogging (duh), learning more and more about dogs (-told ya crazy dog lady here), cooking (kinda,maybe), PINTEREST! (is that considered a hobby?), and of course having fun times with family and friends

Have you got any bizarre talents?

I can touch the tip of my nose with my tongue! Oh and I can do the cherry knot thing (if you give me about a hour….)

Favorite foods?

Well lets see: pizza, fries, chocolate, and asparagus (yes I know,odd choice)

If you could be any animal in the world, what would it be?

I used to want to be a dog. Because man, do they have the life lying around, getting food handed to them, playing, sleeping….but then I thought about the dogs who had no choice and no way out and landed with a not-so-nice owner, which in that life is not so good. So instead I pick a bird, preferably a flamingo , who wouldn’t want to be a gigantic pink thing that could fly?

How would you describe yourself in one word?

kind-hearted

Whats your favorite movie, tv show and book?

My favorite T.V show right now is Survivor, or yes I know I know, but its the real housewives….

Do you have any goals in life that you want to achieve?

I would like to be happy in life.

What do you love most about blogging?

Connecting with people who love and enjoy the same things as me, who otherwise I would have never met:)

Whats your fears and phobias?

This is morbid but being buried alive

or

Being stranded/lost in some very foreign country without anything but the clothes on my back (I watched a movie, and now I have this fear)

Most embarrassing thing that has happened to you?

I slipped very ungracefully and fell very ungracefully on my bum, infront of half the school and crush.Everyone laughed 😦

Okay so here are the rules: (my nominees must follow these rules too!)

1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Share five things about yourself
3. Answer five questions presented by KIRBYSDAWGBLOG (below)

5. What is a common misconception/ pet peever people have about your dog/cat/breed, that you would like to clear up!?

and finally…..Five things about Kirby

a. He likes to pretend he’s a cat and lay down on the top of the couch instead of the actual couch.

b. He likes to bark at things only he can see.

c. He likes to wake you up by licking up your nose…or trying to (What a charmer)

d. He is a bit standoffish at first but once he is picked up or confronted head on he turns into a sweet little marshmallow

e. For bedtime, he’d rather sleep on top of my head in bed-laying down, than beside me or in his doggy bed.

And finally the evidence of letter A.

Kirby’s Pet Pak and Plaque Blast review

So, when I first got Kirby, back in the summer, during our first vet visit we were given a “pet pak”. Now I’m sure it may not look like much of a revelation for most of you dog owner’s out there, but for a unorgainzed-but-trying-very-hard-to-be-orgaized person like me I am now so glad I had something like this. I know this is a blog but if your not wanting to read you can watch this quick video where I go through everything that is in Kirby’s puppy pack.

It came with a comb, a toy, a toothbrush, and some general puppy information. When I first got it I was so pleased with all the things that came inside, but was sure the pack would end up not being used (knowing my usually unorganized self) in the back of my closet.

025

Though, refreshingly enough it has come in quite handy with storing and organizing all Kirby’s little medications, vet information or hygiene things. This pack is just one things placed in his “puppy drawer” which is full of his coats, sweaters, brushes, hair clipper etc. I know for a fact now, without this handy little pack more then half the things I keep in here would have disappeared into the great abyss of my home by now. I think this pack idea or anything similar just makes my life as a dog owner so much more easier, as I now know where anything little or important thing can be now conveniently found.

022

In here holds his medication /flea medication at the top. A brush, nail clippers, and his dental care in the middle. His vet information at the bottom, and some coupons on the back

021I have been using this plaque blast on Poe actually for the last month. I was extremely skeptical it did any of what it said, as the T.V commercials were pretty much telling you a spray of this $15 dollar bottle did what you  sometimes end up paying hundreds of dollars for your vet to do and that it is, remove all the plaque. But I’m a sucker for these things and decided to give it a shot on Poe. As I was not sure if it was harmless to use on puppies, and Poe was the one with the oral health issues. When we first got him 8 years ago, I’ll admit I never really knew how important it was to brush a dog’s teeth, to me it was the same thing as putting your dog into a very uncomfortable frilly pink dress simply because it was “your baby”. Well since than I have learned the extreme importance of it, which is why I have a whole little toothbrush kit as you can see above for both Kirby and Poe. Anyways- He still has a bit  of plaque stuck between his back molars, and although the blast has helped it  (IT REALLY HAS!) I am pretty sure that that plaque would need professional help.  Though all in all it really did do a decent job. His teeth are quite nice and white, and for being a mature small dog (as they are more prone to teeth issues) that has had his teeth neglected for the first few years they are looking pretty great since this process. All in all it did better then expected, but I still think the toothbrush and toothpaste work the best, but if your tired or have no time, this is fast and convenient for in a pinch. So I do think if you want to try it out, it is worth the shot. I picked it up at Petsmart.

So unfortunately, not a lot has been going on with Kirby or I, and I have been busy this week so if this post seems boring to you, it probably is, I just haven’t posted in a week and wanted to get involved somehow! Hopefully this weekend we will be attempting to see if any doggies and their owners are resurfacing since this crazy weather we’ve been having (Oh canada!), if so I will be posting more soon! Until then, time to see what you guys are all up to:)

p.s- sorry I haven’t been on lately! If I haven’t been visiting your bloggy in a while, its just because I have hardly been on wordpress this past week! Will catch up though on everyone!

Christmas Critters Blog Hop

Kirby finally got to see his first bit of snow! It seems down in Ontario we will be getting our white Christmas! As you can see he didn’t quite know what to make of it, but his urge to do his business mixed with morning excitement got him quite confident to go explore in the end! He lasted about 5 minutes till he got the chillies and wanted back in, which is when he proceeded to look out the glass door instead and watch all this floating cold stuff fall.

Okay guys, I’m trying out this blog hop, really doubt it will even work, or if you guys are even interested, but I couldn’t find a Sunday blog hop to join, so ATTEMPTING to make my own! :S I know how embarrassing, all you blog hop makers are probably shaking your head…XD

The dog that hates Santa Clause, The cat and the fish!

Well if this is some kind of foreshadowing of what is to come when Kirby finally meets Santa at one of the Santa-pet-photo events taking place at our Petsmart, than I don’t know what is going to happen! 😛

I guess though, in all logic, it does make perfect sense how a dog such as Kirby would be scared of a foot-tall Santa Clause singing some kind of horrible noise, than suddenly spinning around like the exorcist! Yea, I guess if we look at it in a dog’s perspective, Santa can kind of be one scary man..or tiny man, such as in this case!

Anywho, I also thought it might be a good idea to show you some of Kirby’s other little buddies, that reside in his place of leisure as well. Now, yes some of the aquatic ones, well I’m not even sure he knows they exist, or does and could care-a-less but they are part of his home none the less. Am I big fish lover?  Umm no. Do I get guilty watching little creatures swim around in a cup the size of a shotglass, realizing this might be their whole life, if I don’t step in?….Yes, well that’s the case for the red guy anyways. Is this solving the problem by me purchasing them at this particular “evil” location, in which I did?….umm….. no, but I could not leave them there.  Anyways, here they are!!!

008

This guy actually used to be quite the beauty, but getting him as a adult, and having him for almost 2 years I think his age is starting to catch up to him.

This guy actually used to be quite the beauty, but getting him as a adult, and having him for almost 2 years I think his age is starting to catch up to him.

This is him before, so you can see what I mean…

013

And NO, they do not live together. This guy used to have the red guys tank, until he became more lethargic acting and slower, I figured a smaller, lower tank would be best for him at that point. 😦

Anyways, and here is the other guy. The “mafia cat” otherwise known as Rascal. We actually rescued him as a kitten while on a camping trip, he hung around a trailer park, and a man there was trying to find him a home, as his mother had disappeared. He was really weak, and could barely walk by the time we decided to take him and found him again. So although at the time I wasn’t much of a kitty person, my natural instinct of animal loving kicked in, and I knew we were meant to bring him home.

8 years later, he is the cat, other cats, or animals for that matter don’t wanna mess with. People on the other hand, well I can’t tell you how many times I have seen him following me on a walk, and getting stopped by various people on the street telling me what a “sweet” cat he is, and that he follows them sometimes too. Sweet? I don’t know if a cat who’s hobbies include killing mice on the daily, picking a fight with almost any cat that strides his way, and giving Kirby or Poe a good whack on the head if they even attempt to play with him……..sweet. But okay. The worst part is, he is de-clawed (yes I know, I was a young teenager at the time and didn’t know anything about the controversies/ realities that de-clawing would mean, and be him living in my mother’s house, and at the time constantly attacking my than toddler little brother, my mom had it done),since then I have learned a lot about the horrors that de-clawing can actually cause and would not wish to have it done on any future cat I may have. But that is the scariest part, he can’t even really scratch or attack like I’m pretty sure every other cat on my block can do…..yet he is the one they are all scared of. He is the cat that walks down the sidewalk, and every other cat that sees him in close diameter books it to the other side of the street. I guess, you can take the cat out of the street, but you can’t take the street out of the cat, not in this case at least!

014

Yea horrible picture I know, it was late and we were both tired.

And finally….being Kirby’s blog and all, here is one of him, looking at me wondering why this crazy person is up so late taking pictures of him.
