More adoptions & big and smalls -WW

HEY EVERYONE!

I hope you are all enjoying your summer. whether that be jumping into lots of lakes and playing in the nice green grass, or for the two legged enjoying the sunshine and being with your furry best friend.

I have been continuing enjoying my time working at the shelter, and just wanted to share a few more happy adoption pictures! This little guy although may look like a full grown Shih-tzu still had his baby teeth coming in so he is definitely a mix of something a little larger. Lhasa Apso perhaps? What do you guys think? Either way I had the privilege of getting to know him on a few walks and play times till he was happily adopted into a loving forever home, I even got to say goodbye to the little one first hand.

Not only that but in accordance to adopt a cat month, I am happy to say more then a few kittens have been adopted this week too!

Today my friend came over with her adorable American Bulldog Savior, and I quickly got a few snaps with him and the boys, before he proceeded to gallop on about his merry little way. Kirby was a little nervous when Savior got too close (but him being still a rambunctious pup) I was still proud of the progression he has made with dealing with the bigger guys as he handled it all pretty good 🙂

I couldn’t get over in this picture how so very small Kirby looked compared to Savior! Aren’t they just the cutest pair!

No, that is not a small garden decoration in the background.

Sorry not much of a post today, as this week for some reason I feel a little at a loss for words, but I wanted to get this up in usual time:) Hope you guys all continue to have a amazing week!

 

 

ZOMBIESS!!! A thanks for Pet-N-Style

Hi all! Sorry for not writing or being on the blogosphere for a while, our internet took a vacation last Wednesday, and it finally came back from it today!

I wanted to start out saying a BIG thank you to Pet-N-Style who graciously send us some products for Kirby and Poe. As well as the wonderful letter! They state in it that ” We at Pet-N-Style are offering these items as free samples to you as a potential customer to do with as you wish. We require absolutely nothing in return for these items…”

Though I really wanted to write something about these guys. They are so great. First off they are family operated and run. I really do like supporting companies like this whenever we can. What really made us smile was that they are a proud member of the ASPCA, and assist local animal rescues using their media outlets and connections. I think that is such an admirable quality for any company to give back to the community, and to do with animals who need it, well that just touches my heart.

Anyways, I wanted to show you guys some of the goodies they got . Including some that may help in the future to help in any zombie mishaps!!! XD

It’s a Star Wars collar and leash. Its so cute and so Poe’s style, thank you so much Pet-N-Style.

See all the other stuff we got in our video, as i wanted to give a little thank you again. What do you guys think? Plus we are giving stuff away if interested, watch!

Because all my animals are boys, I decided we wanted to give the adorable little heart collar and heart-key charm to one or two of our lovely little bloggy followers. So if you would like me to send you it, please comment on this post below, and tell me which one you want, and we’ll ship it to you right away…..just because we appreciate everyone who reads our blog, and would really love to share the love Pet-N-Style gave us!

And my ahem….our most favorite is a necessity Poe and Kirby will need for any future Zombies…..just so they are warned!

zombiiiiiiiiiiiies

Oh yea and here’s Pet-N-Style’s tweet tweet! https://twitter.com/PetNStyle

About us, frisbees and best buddies!

–First off sorry I haven’t been here in a week! I have been uncommonly busy,and working on this. My life-with pets 🙂

I hope everyone is having a good day, if not, hopefully these pictures will cheer you up 🙂 I know when I am feeling down simply watching Kirby try to wrestle with a toy twice the size of him, or exploring what looks like a whole new world even though he smelt that exact spot the day before, just can help put things in perspective as many things can I suppose. Dogs if given the bare necessities love, food, understanding can be completely happy and enjoy life in their own little world. Sure we may have more problems and be a bit more “complicated” but I think taking a cue from a creature simply happy to be here can speak volumes 🙂
Kirby has a best little buddy who he has made quite good friends with inside the dog park and out. Their personalities seem to collide almost in harmony as they both seem to always have a fun time around each other. I also got a shot of Kirby chasing a Frisbee, far too big for him, but making the best of it all the same! (sorry the pictures are grainy – cell phone).

HAVE A GOOD MONDAY GUYS! NO MATTER WHAT! 🙂

Snoopy's Dog Blog

Fun with meme

Well it is Saturday. I have given Kirby a bath the day before, and as that is always somehow a very traumatizing experience for him, I decided to give him a break with pictures…well except for this one that I think depicts his fear perfectly prior to bath time.

So to give him a bit of a break, and being inspired by his recent picture I decided to show you guys some of my favorite animal meme’s of all time ……

And just in case anyone missed our last video

NOT so Wordless wednesday- Poe and the intruder!

We missed mischief monday again! How could we, and this time there was lots of mischief to write about. So I guess better late then never. I got the privilege of puppy-sitting one of Kirby’s best buddies Rocco. I know you guys got to see him in a post about a month ago, but man has he grown! He is developing quite the personality as well,which works perfectly for Kirby’s rambunctious self. I took lots of pictures to share with you guys, and uploaded a video about it for those who want to see him in action.
Rocco although cute and playful like Kirby, is quite different than any dog I have ever owned – and no its not just the random snorting he gives every couple seconds, but it has helped put him up there! (Caught a bit on video- see below)

Kirby for example likes to show off his skills by ducking and running under Rocco to show off just how much faster he is, than poor Rocco could ever be, and Rocco simply uses his weight (as its all he has in his defense) to try and pin Kirby for a good play-fight. Rocco is very much a puppy and though he’s learning doesn’t have all the social manners Kirby is used to, that added to him weighing a good solid 15+ pounds already, I had to be sure to supervise that Rocco’s play tactics didn’t accidentally squish the poor little Kirbster XD.

Because he has never met Poe before (our family dog) who has a bit of anti-social behavior due to his past, I had to be on top of my game when introducing the little squirt to him and “his territory”. So I used some of the tips I have mentioned before in my videos. Poe as I suspected wasn’t in for being buddies (unlike Kirby) as when Rocco tried to play with him, Poe would give a little don’t-bug-me growl and walk away. Other then that though they co-existed fine, and Poe was quite content looking a the two bozos
– immature pups (trust me he was thinking it) play and scurry around, not very interesting for a 8 year old boy who would rather lounge with us humans, then have to intermingle with these two rambunctious pups, as they ran and played…and ran and played circles around him.

I did get one shot though of the three of them snuggling together, or should I say Poe lying down and these two snuggling up to him,and him being to lazy to move. Never-the-less it was quite adorable!

Here’s the video, pictures are below it.

Hey wordless Wednesday, breaking the rules

Taking cover behind me on my pillows...XD

Taking cover behind me on my pillows…XD

So yes, I realize today is wordless Wednesday, and we don’t like missing it! Already missed it last week, missed Monday Mischief this week, so we refuse to miss anymore, even though technically that doesn’t make it a wordless Wednesday, but we figure breaking the rules once isn’t going to hurt anything. Plus I always think of wordless Wednesday as cute-picture-doggy time, and we have pictures, yes we do!

So, I don’t know about you guys but over here in Canada, we had a storm last night. It wasn’t your average storm, no no. It wasn’t just storming, with rain coming out like a faucet, no, and yes there was thunder, and lightening, but it was the most INTENSE thunder we have ever heard.

This was Kirby’s first thunder storm, and would you believe it the first thunder we heard, partially shook the house! it was so loud, I wanted to look out the window and start barking. Luckily, Poe and Kirby were already at it. Poe was more on guard, ready to attack the thunder storm, while poor little Kirby was scared out of his mind, that it was a simple “fight or flight” for him, and he decided to do both. Luckily, after a few minutes, the thunder calmed down to be more “normal” and Kirby stopped caring.  I wanted to quickly capture for you guys, Kirby’s reaction to all this in pictures, sorry they are grainy my phone was what I had quickly on me to snap a few shots.

Maybe If I can just blend into the sheets, no one  will see me?

After the window was checked......
