An Evening Walk

Mom and I went for a walk the other day after she got home from work.  For some unknown reason she brought the camera....she doesn't usually grab it for our evening walks.

First of all, I had to do my most favoritist thing in the world.

As we walked, Mom noticed somebunny being very still....
She was quite shocked that I didn't notice him.

 I was on a mission that did not include bunnies.

Once my mission was complete, we headed home and
on the way I picked up somebunny's scent.

Oh!  He was right here!  Where did he go?

Mom, I am NOT ready to go yet 
so please stop pulling on my leash!
I know you can't smell it but somebunny was here. 
I need time to investigate.

Believe it or not, she told me I was a "Crack head"!  
She did not give me more time to investigate!  

I got my first Christmas card today from Frankie and Ernie! 
Thanks for the card, boys!

Twix's Flashback Friday: Wordless Wednesday

I thought this week's Flashback would be perfect after
Taffy's Wordless Wednesday post.  I love how some of the things Taffy does remind me so much of Twix.

Today's flashback was originally posted on Nov 2, 2010.

This is a wordless post from me but if you put your ears close to the computer and listen very carefully.....
you will probably hear my mom giggling!

A Trip to the Dog Park

We went to the Dog Park last weekend.  
The weather was beautiful.  
We got there early so there weren't too many others there.  

This is the second time I've ever been to the Dog Park.  The first time I stayed right next to Mom or Dad the whole time.

 Because of my puppy mill background, 
new situations make me pretty nervous.

  I did better this time and ventured out a little more.
I met this cute little guy; he had 2 coats on!

Look out! Here I come!

 We decided to take a walk on the trail and I led the way! 

Momma took some pictures of the pretty leaves.  

We've had a beautiful fall in our part of the world this year. 

 Are you guys coming or what?

 Some doggie left me a pee mail.

 This is kinda interesting.....

And this is Momma's most favorite photo of the day.

Twix's Flashback Friday: Assistance

When I came across this post it put a smile on my face so I wanted to share it with you.  This post shows you just how much Twix loved her Daddy.

This week's flashback was originally posted on
Sunday, November 14, 2010.
You can access the original post here
if you would like to read previous comments.

The other day, my daddy was busy doin somethin
and I needed to check it out. 

I asked him what he was doin.
He didn't answer me so I thought I needed to
 get all up in his snooter get closer and ask again.

He said, "I WAS workin on the table that your momma
broke til you decided to stick your nose in my grill".

"Daddy, you can keep workin on it.
I am here to lick your skin off assist you."

Then he told me I was NOT helping!!!
Can you believe that?

Note from Mom: I didn't break the table,
it is an old piece of junk and it fell apart!

Lions and Zebras and Bears! Oh, My!

So, you remember when I told you Mom and Dad went to the zoo the weekend before Howl-O-Weenie?
Well, I wanted to share some of the photos they took, you know, other than the penguin ones you've seen already.

First they saw the polar bear.  

 Look how HOOGE his paws are! 

He was really enjoying that carrot he was eating.

They saw the lions napping in their giant sun puddle.

Talk about HOOGE!  
Mr. Lion's head is enormous!

Do you see Mrs. Lion hiding from us?

They also saw some zebras.

This picture cracks me up!  
It appears as though the ostrich scared the poop 
right outta that striped horse! 

The hippos were quite active and
they have the cutest little ears!

 Momma didn't get a picture when this guy opened his mouth and made a really loud noise.  She said she was enjoying the moment but I think she is just slow.

Of course they had to make a stop to see the monkeys.
This one sat down right in front of Mom.  Then they all left.  I'm guessing it was time for dinner!

I hope you weren't too bored with these pics from the Kansas City Zoo.  A lot of animals were inside because of the cool weather.  Daddy was sad that he didn't get to see the giraffes.  Apparently they have their own heated barn.

Hopefully, you will get to see some photos of me at the dog park soon.  We are still having trouble uploading images from the memory card to the laptop.  These pictures of the zoo are nice and all but this is supposed to be about me, right?  Not a place for Momma to show off pictures of other animals!

Dating Application Results

To:  "Commando" Stanley G. Campbell
From:  "Crazy Eyes" Fonso

I have carefully reviewed your application to date Taffy.  
Unknown to you, I have had the 
K9 Date Patrol sniffing around your town.  

I did contact the FBI and, as you predicted, 
they returned a flawless report.   
Never mind the fact that they were all swooning over you!

The fact that you attend church regularly is certainly in your favor.  I also feel like your parents are stand up dogs.  I appreciate that you don't blame Taffy for her past....you are right, she couldn't help it. I like that you have a good sense of humor too.  I am not quite sure how I feel about you going commando when you are with my daughter.  I guess we will just have to see how that goes.  

I do have the ability to occasionally read minds.  As long as her lips are the only things you refer to as voluptuous, and taking all things into consideration (including Taffy's feelings for you), your application has been approved.   Always remember, she is MY special girl.  I am letting you date her and I am the one with the "crazy eyes"!

Stanley's Answer to Daddy

I'm so excited!  Stanley completed Daddy's
"Application For Dating My Daughter" and I think he did a GREAT job!  To see his answers, please click here.
Now we just have to wait and find out what Daddy says.
I am most certainly Daddy's girl and I can
usually figure out a way to get what I want.
Paws crossed!

 This is the first picture ever taken of me and my daddy.

    10. Does your underwear have pictures or words on the outside?
    11. Do you plan to take a bath, get groomed, comb your fur, brush your teeth, and put on a clean collar before coming to pick up my daughter?
    12. Do you prefer to be buried or cremated?  In case I need to let your pawrents know.
  • Please provide a list of the last 3 girls you have dated including their father's name and the reason the relationship ended.
  • Special Notice:  If accepted, there will be a 50 bone deposit when you pick up my daughter.  If you are 1 minute late, the deposit will be forfeited.  If you are more then 30 minutes late, refer to #12 above.
Stanley, I am so sorry.  
Please don't hold my daddy's protectiveness against me.
I used my best sad eyes look and
I begged and pleaded to no avail.
You know how Daddy's are about their daughters!
