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.

I have been so lucky and blessed to have two great bloggers who blessed me with this award.

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 ūüôā

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 ūüė¶

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)
4. Ask five new questions to your nominated bloggers

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

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!

A thankyou Comic book style!

Yes, I am perfectly aware this isn’t Thankful Thursday! Actually,¬† I don’t think I even ever did a Thankful Thursday (wow, great person I am) but realizing 2012 is coming to a close, it makes me a bit sentimental, and maybe a bit crazy. I wanted to thank those most who have been so kind and gone the extra mile in getting to know me and Kirby, and who I have not yet got the pleasure of thanking. Kirby often reminds me of yes a cartoon character. Which one? Not a clue, maybe like the mix that he is, he is also a mix in cartoons as well. Sometimes I see Bugs bunny as he confidently and¬† nonchalantly goes about to tear the garbage out of the can, sometimes its tweety, as he sits there on his sofa perch so innocently antagonizing the cat still, somehow, in a subtle way I can only bring down to animal language. And yes he definitely is a road runner, when I catch him doing something naughty, instead of “beep beep” it’s “ruff ruff” and off he goes as fast as his little paws will take him from the scene of the crime!

So in inspiration of Kirby I thought why not say a thank you in a silly way we know how…comic book style! As each of these guys are like the superheros that have helped Kirby’s dawg blog come to life! There are many many other friends I have met along the way but for this I am doing it for the guys who have found me and been there since the beginning or has really done something to touch our hearts! I put a little tag on them in case you want to add it to your awards section or something…not that this is really a award, but whatever!

Comic book style Kirby & his ma!

That toooook soooooo long, lol, but it was worth it!

And finally to top it all off here is the little Kirby in the snow! And his famous little “love you” lick!

P1100544

Kirby literally will only go a few feet in front of us than look back to make sure we are still there, then proceeds to run back to us, where he starts the process all over again, as you can see in the video. Poor thing. XD

Kirby’s Christmas! Christmas leftovers

I figured I’m going to do a little haul post of all the stuff Kirby got from his family over Christmas (us). But first I thought I would leave you with a video of Kirby and bff Poe playing with their new toys they just opened. As well as a nice picture of our tree and prezzies the night before!

Where’s Waldo Kirby? Whoever finds him first second and third gets a, uuh….cookie.

002

Well they liked their presents!

As for being thankful, I am definitely thankful for all my family and friends, and my great blogging community for being so kind and fun to hand out with!!!! Also thank you to Gizmo, for thanking me! Lol, We should just keep going back and forth!

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

Park + Leaves = The amazing disappearing dog

Well….maybe not quite, but I tell ya if that leaf pile was just a little higher it would definitely be true. After he had been neutered, we had to have a week of rest -if they mean by rest trying my darnedest to contain a pent up wiry jumpy little thing from trying just about everything against doctor’s orders to get all his excess energy out XD, then it kind of failed. Then, if luck was already not on his side,¬† right when he was fully healed was when the treacherous Hurricane Sandy came into our midst. Though it was a much milder, tropical storm than what it had been the previous days in the U.S.¬† Kirby would once again have to stay in, that is unless he wanted to see if he could fly involuntarily that is. So first time back, a bit chilly, but he met up with some other dogs and their loyal owners who decided to brave the cold for their dogs benefit. He had a lot of fun in the leaves, and kept running back to the piles that were swept up in the corner of the enclosed space. Taken with the my camera phone so excuse the quality.

“what is all this fun, brown, crunchy paper doing here!?”

Kirby’s first leaf pile experience

For blog of change- Hope for paws/Eldad75

While surfing the wonderful blogs of WordPress I have come across “BLOG FOR CHANGE”¬† (badge on right side) where you can write about a animal charitable organization of your choice. I have been following the Youtube user “eldad75” who went out of his way to create a charitable organization along with his wife and crew to rescue the many, almost epidemic number of stray dogs that have been abandoned on the streets of Los Angeles. He uses the¬† donated money to rescue, bring to the vet and receive the much needed medical care that is usually needed at this point for the dog,and then hopefully to find their forever home. This video in particular is heartbreaking but has a VERY HAPPY ENDING, and is very moving, as he takes you through the whole journey into the story of rescuing one of these dogs. You can support them on Facebook through hopeforpaws, ( you can vote for them so they have a change to win 250,000 that will go directly to the cause) or click the image link below to visit their site. I believe Eldad’s videos can speak for itself way more than any words I could say would,¬† so with that I leave you with the video below:

Backtracking…

6 word saturday: You and I,best friends forever

 

So up until recently, Kirby was doing SOOOO good at his potty routine.I was truly convinced at one point he had it down pat, and there would be no more accidents, I can’t tell you how happy I was! Especially upon learning that apparently little dogs are usually much more challenging to train then the bigger guys.

Unfortunately though, I got sick and through that sorry to say got pretty lazy with his routine, and feeling bad that he didn’t have me to play with him, as I was pretty much bedridden gave him a little bit too much trust and let him roam the house unsupervised. Which has¬† inevitably led to the frequent “surprises” I have been finding around the house the last few days,sigh (I know, its my fault!). Though today being the first day I officially feel cured of my awful cold, I can get back on track with him and re-route him on the correct potty path. Wish me luck guys. Oh yea I taught him to sit pretty recently. Yes, it might be a girl thing,but he don’t mind ūüėČ
