Wordless wednesday – new adoption and addition

I’m sick this week so I’m going to stick to the rules of wordless Wednesday. You guys know I’ve been recently volunteering, and this time I helped my mom adopt. Heres the hint down below. Do you know what we got? Next Wednesday you’ll hear all about him.

And don’t worry I’ll be good as new next week, but until then I think I have pretty good company…..

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.

Winner winner chicken dinner, eh,Waggy Pooch Drypet towel! and a shoutout to a new edition!

So it is the day, well I’ve been waiting for, is finally here. Who will win the amazing Drypet SUPER absorbent, anti-bacterial, Towel? Well it is funny how you do the post, make the video, enter the entrants in the randomizer, and with one click the winner is there, just like that . I wish I could give everyone who entered a towel, and I know everyone says that,but really I do, as I know it is such a great little “invention” that fell into my lap, and now I don’t know what would be a suitable option without it.

Anyone still interested in the towel though, just in case, can get one now for a limited time offer at Waggypooch.com at 20% off the original price! 🙂 It starts today and ends April 22nd.

Okay, okay okay, now for the winner. I will just make it as suspenseful as I can, following it with a big empty space so you must continually scroll down in anticipation, then I will simply add the randomizer list, where obviously the person at number 1 is the winner!

Congratulations Oz! I hope you will enjoy it and find it useful as much as Kirby and I have. Oz, if you see this email me your shipping info, so I can send it off to Waggy Pooch and get your towel to you! 🙂

For everyone else, thank you so so much for entering. We have enjoyed doing this giveaway as you guys as well as Waggy Pooch have been a pleasure to do this with 🙂 We have learned what and what not to do for next time if we ever host one! I think perhaps for the next giveaway Kirby and I will go off to our local pet store and try to find a prize that every viewer can hopefully win and use 🙂

Now before we go, Instead of posting something about KirbyI really was aching to mention a fellow blogger who’s recent post, has touched my heart so much, their generosity and caring demeanor for the animal world can be seen by a new recent edition they just adopted. Not only is he adorable, like oh my goodness please let me hug him NOW adorable, but he is blind. He was destined (or not) for a very sad and probably frightening life, until the wonderful couple at The three little pugs intervened to give him such a happy new beginning  . I don’t want to give the story away as i could never tell it as good as them, and I would really like if you all could just take a peek, I think it might brighten up your day 🙂 Here’s a picture of the little squirt!

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......

Oh and here is what his little shirt says, I am kinda a hippie at heart so had to pick this up!

“All you need is love” -reminds me of The Beatles song

So yes that was quite an adventure! Also for anyone who is interested and hasn’t entered yet, please enter our first and only Giveaway sponsored by Waggypooch. It really truly is a must have product for those facing the same problems I was.

Anyways until tomorrow, when we do our next Ancient beginning winner! xoxo- Leah and
