Throwback Thursday: Ghost of Howl-o-weens past!

 It's Throwback Thursday, folks! Since Howl-o-ween is next week, I thought I'd show you a few of my costumes from Howl-o-weens past. I've been quite the dapper dude ever since I came to live with Momma. We sit out on the porch to hand out candy and visit with all the kiddos, so Momma and I (and Cinderella, once she joined us) all dress up to match each other.

This is 2009, my very furst Howl-o-ween with Momma. We were pirates, yar!


In 2010, we did a bit of our own thing instead of matchy. So here I am in my handsome Scotsman costume.

And Cinderella went as her namesake!



And in 2011, I went as the all-powerful Sultan to match Cinderella the bellydancer and Momma the gypsy!


Want to see the rest of my costumes? Tune in next week for Throwback Thursday! And just wait until you see THIS year's totally pawesome costume!

Puppy Update

Remember the litter of pups LBR saved recently? These little guys are growing like weeds and FULL of personality!

Cleopawtra didn't think much of her furst baff! 

 Sweet Kya is a little camera-shy.

 Bosco wants brother Levi to get up and play!

Levi biting the hand that feeds him. You've got a lot to learn, little dude.

The pups are growing so much that they have a spacious new apartment to live in. Pretty snazzy, huh?

My birthday!

Oh boy, you guys! I had the BEST Momma/Casey day for my birthday!! Momma promised me that we could spend a whole DAY together as a birthday present. We got started furst thing in the morning.

Where are we going, Momma?

She took me to a brand-new park! I'd never been there before, and it was soooo pretty.



But before we started exploring, we sat at a picnic table and Momma pulled out a special surprise.

Really, Momma? Just for ME? 

Yummy!! 

After enjoying my nummy ice cream cone, we went exploring around the park! It was so cool.


I wanted to have a chat with these guys and ask them if they know my furiend Goose, but Momma wouldn't let me get near them. Hmph!


Then there were these guys. I don't know what they were doing, but they had Marine flags and they did lots of shouting of "YES SIR!" I loved watching them, especially when they dropped to the ground and started doing push-ups. Better them than us!


They had a volleyball court, so I got to feel the sand between my toes. It was just like being at the beach!


I was not a fan of this bridge. It felt weird to walk across it. I was hoping Momma wasn't going to make me go over it again in this picture.


Sitting by the lake was much more my style! You can see I'm stylin' my brand-new Julius K-9 harness. It was an early barkday present from Momma.


The best part of my new harness is the pawesome BOXERPOWER label on it. It makes me feel like a superhero!


We walked all the way around the park TWICE. It was grreat.


Momma and I even sat on a park bench together and posed for a selfie. Except I didn't want to look at the camera. I was trying to catch another glimpse of my Marine buddies.


I didn't think the day could get any better. But THEN Momma and I headed to Sonic for lunch!

 Om nom nom nom! Cheeseyburger!!

And THEN we went to Lowe's. I love Lowe's! It's dog-friendly, but not many people bring their dogs there. So I'm usually the only one around and get fussed over LOTS! I had tons of folks coming over to pet me and fuss over me, plus I got to investigate all sorts of new smells.


 OMD. This was just the best day EVER. But then when we got home, Momma said there was one more thing to do. She pulled out my Captain America bandana, which confused me a little. But then she pulled out Cap himself! He's my most favoritest superhero. We settled in together to watch Captain America: The First Avenger together, plus POPCORN.


 This was just such an amazing day. I could barely keep my eyes open for the post-credits scene. I don't think I could've designed a better day. There was just one thing missing.


Ohhh yeah. That's it. Love you, Momma.


Love you too, Casey. Happy birthday!

A dog and his boy: birthday edition!

OMD, I had the bestest birthday surprise last night! Momma got home and took me on a walk as usual, but it was SUPER short. I was like, c'mon Momma, can't a guy get a decent walk on his birthday of all days?? She said, "Sorry, Casey, but we're expecting someone." Great, someone to interrupt my plans to nap on Momma for the rest of the night.

But then GUESS who showed up?!


It's my boy!!!! He came over just to see ME for my BIRTHDAY! Momma tries to tell me he's HER furiend, but he didn't come see her on HER birthday, did he? Nope, he's MINE ALL MINE! I loves my boy so much. And I loves him the most when he puts on his leather jacket, because that means it's PLAY TIME!!







WOW! What a grreat birthday surprise. I don't know how Momma is going to improve on it for our day tomorrow. But I can't wait to see her try! ;) I'll report back on Monday with ALL the details.

It's my birthday!!!


I'm so excited I can hardly stand it! Today is my seventh barkday!! Woohoo!!!!!!!!!! It seems like only yesterday I was coming to live with Momma, barely a year old.


I've celebrated some pawesome birthdays in that time. Momma loves to spoil me!


Now here I am, a little older, a little grayer, a lot wiser, and with just as much pep in my step as before! It's been a grreat seven years, and I know this will be my best year EVER! Lucky sevens!



Tomorrow Momma is giving me my present of a whole DAY together! I can't wait to see what all she's planned. It'll be pawesome!
