I'm so lucky to have so many furiends!

A Contest and Sweepstakes Just for YOU!

I think we have all heard about the Incredible Dog Challenge.  It happens to be one of my favorite things to watch on TV, especially the diving dogs.  Those pups are KRAZY!  I would never do anything like that!  I'm made of sugar and all that water would make me a sticky mess.

Purina Pro Plan asked me to let my readers know that they are doing a sweepstakes with a pawsome prize:
*2 round-trip plane tickets to Huntington Beach, CA for the Incredible Dog Challenge Western Regionals
*A 3-day, 2-night hotel stay
*Ground transportation and spending money
*AND (the best part) a $500 PetSmart gift card

The sweepstakes is really easy to enter.  All you have to do is go to this webpage and enter your email address.  Even those of us who have issues with our assistants should be able to talk them into entering this sweepstakes.  

Also, Purina Pro Plan is sponsoring a photo contest right here on my blog!  I'm so excited to get to have my own photo contest!  I've never had a contest of any kind since this has become my blog.  I'm expecting to get lots of entries for my first ever contest (hint, hint)!

Win Some Food For Thought

I received an email the other day from a nice lady named Mary-Catherine about a photo contest.  She told me if I was willing to spread the word about the contest she would send me some treats for my trouble.  Look what came in the mail!

3 whole bags of Wellness Core treats!
I was so fast at eating the one Mom gave me that she was only able to capture 1 picture!
Look, Mom, no treats!

This happens to be the easiest work I've ever done for treats (since I am currently sleeping).

So, here are the details about the
Wellness Natural Pet Food for Dogs and Cats Naughty or Nice Pet Photo Contest:
-Upload up to 4 images of yourself being naughty or nice
-Win a year's supply of Wellness Dog or Cat food!!!
 That is all you have to do!
Winning a years supply of food has never been easier.
The contest is open until December 23rd.
There will be two grand prize winners of the year's supply of Wellness Pet Food, one dog and one cat.
There will be up to ten runners up and they will receive a Wellness cat or dog prize pack!

I happen to eat Wellness dog food and this is my actual bag of food.

Mom and Dad like feeding me Wellness and that is what Twix ate too.  We have been a Wellness family for a long time.  Mom tossed my bag on the floor to take some pics for our post.

Hey!  What is my kibble doing in the middle of the floor?

Let's see if I can figure out how to open this zipper thing.

No luck!  I'm gonna try my super fast moves and see if I can scare this bag open!

That didn't work either.  Hmmm....guess I'll have to use these sharp teeth and tear this bag wide open. 

What is this bag made of anyway?

Guess I'll have to try to carry it to my kennel.

 Ugh!  Too heavy!  
My only other option is to push it.

I never did get into that darn bag!
I guess I better get some photos uploaded for the contest so I can win more bags of food to wrestle with.
Do you guys think I should go with naughty or nice?

What do I do about this?

You guys will never guess what happened this weekend!

Momma left on Saturday night and again Sunday morning.  After she got home on Sunday, I "borrowed" her phone cuz I wanted to text a little love note to Stanley.
This is what I saw on her phone:

My momma is cheating on me!!!!

I thought she smelled funny when she came home Saturday night.  I spent a good 15 minutes giving her an extended sniff over, but I never suspected this!

I just don't know what to think any more.
Does she like big dogs better?
Maybe she likes dogs with wrinkly faces and big jowls.
How long has this has been going on?

Most importantly, what should I do about this?

A Lot to be Thankful For
I hope everyone has been able to enjoy some time with their family and friends today. When I did my post about my adoption story, it got me to thinking about all the things I have to be thankful for.....

I'm most thankful for treats!

I'm thankful for the ability to play with my toys, whenever I decide to.

I'm thankful for my Grandma who loves me very much.

I'm thankful for all the silly photos Mom takes of me (sorta).

I'm thankful for clothes to keep me warm since I don't have much fur. (No offense to my feline furiends!)

I'm thankful for blankets left on the couch for me to cuddle up and take a nap in.

I'm thankful for the sunshine that comes through the windows even when it is cold outside.

I'm thankful for living long enough to have all these gray hairs in my beard.

I'm thankful Scooter found a home of his own.

I'm thankful for the ability to go on walks even when I have to wait for the person walking me.

I'm thankful for being able to relax in the sun.

I'm thankful that I get to sleep in the big bed.

I'm thankful for my daddy because he loves me very much.

I'm thankful for my momma because she loves me very much.

I'm thankful that my momma and daddy love each other very much and I get to be a part of their family.

And I'm very thankful for all my blogging furiends who love and support me no matter how silly I am!

A Special Day in Blogville

Its Thanksgiving Day here in America 
but in Blogville, its 
Thanks Blogville Day.  

Our new mayor doods have organized this for us to celebrate what we appreciate about Blogville.  I love living in Blogville with all my furiends.  You guys make this a wonderful place.  The thing I love the best is the support that we offer each other.  No matter what is needed or who needs it, I know that someone in Blogville will be able to help out.  Sometimes its emotional support, sometimes its financial help, sometimes its having someone to listen, or sending a get well card to a person you have never met.  All of these things make Blogville the best place on the planet to live!  

I'm also thankful that you let me be my goofy self!

I've looked this way....

and I've looked that way.....

but I couldn't find better furiends in any of those places.
Thanks, Blogville for being a wonderful, loving place!

And, a special thanks to Stanley for being the best boyfuriend a girl could have!

Spend some time with someone you love today!

Exciting and Not Exciting

Let's talk about the exciting stuff first!
My guy, Manley Stanley and his Dood bro, Murphy, have chosen me to serve in their 2015 cabinet!  I have been chosen to be the Director of Blogger Technology.  I'm hoping I will be able to do a good job in that position.  If you have questions about Blogger, please let me know and I will do my best to answer them.

In addition to that, I've also been chosen to be a Probation/Parole Officer.  You know, just in case Top Cop Bites and the Blogville PD arrest someone who is then released from the Blogville jail.  Office Bites has already given me my badge!  Oh, I can't wait to use it!

And, I have decided to be part of the Blogville Choir!
I am so excited to get started with all these new adventures next year!  It will be here sooner than we know!

Now, I have to tell you about the not exciting stuff.....
I was not very excited when I came home from a walk with Mom today looking like this:

I love Stanley's curly hair but I hate it when my hairs are curly!  If my furs are curly, it means I  got wet.  
I do not like being wet!   
So, imagine if you will, it was sprinkling when I went out for my afternoon walk today.  Not a big deal, I can handle that.  On the way home, it started pouring rain!  Mom had an umbrella that she opened for herself.  She says she tried to keep it over me but well, you know how that goes.  We were staying on the sidewalk because the grass was soaking wet (and because Mom had on a new pair of sneakers).  

I took a few steps into the grass and then back on the sidewalk.  Mom wondered what I was doing because I did that about 3 or 4 times but, at some point I decided I didn't care if the grass was wet or not.  I took off running through the grass, taking Mom on a shortcut.  I ran the whole way home, dragging her behind me.  But do you know what she did?  She laughed at me!!!!  I couldn't believe it!   She laughed the entire way home!  She thought it was funny because I am a very laid back pup and I just took charge and took over our walk.
I was really glad to get her new shoes wet and muddy!
I know my furs are usually wavy but they get really curly when wet and as I mentioned I don't like them curly.  Mom, however, loves it when my hairs get all curly, probably because she was a teenage in the '80's.  She calls me curly girly which is almost as bad as getting laughed at.
