Blogville Bonfire!

Happy Howl-o-ween, everybody!! I'm SO happy to host all of Blogville for the official Bonfire Roast. Be sure to check out all the other Howl-o-ween celebrations today. Check out the Blog Hop at the end of the post for all the other pawties!

Let's get started! I need to stoke the fire and get a nice roaring blaze ready for all my furiends.

 

Oh yeah, that's more like it!



Now everyone can come in and get cozy around the fire! Don't worry, Frank, you won't have to wear that sweater long. Frankie, how's the fire looking up close?


Here come the crabby girls! Beachnut, Oceana, and Shelldon are getting started on the tube steaks. Yum!


Double, double, toil, and trouble. Mayoress Madi looks like she's casting a spell tonight!


Misaki and Gizmo broke out the marshymallows! Now it's a real pawty!


Here's Sarge with a marshymallow too. Don't get it too close to the fire, it might burn!


Wow! Now this is what I call a smart pup! Look at the idea Sully came up with for making s'mores fur everybuddy! Mmm, Taffy just can't wait to try some. Looks like Ernie's trying to roast a tube steak for his girl Roxie too. What a happening pawty!


BOL, it looks like Cinderella is getting a little worried that Wyatt is going to steal all the marshymallows. I'm glad Stella Rose, Bailey, Gretel, and Hazel are there to supervise!


Whew, that was a FUN pawty. I'm glad everyone had fun and nothing got too -- OMD!! How did Angus and Maggie get out to the fires on the lake?! Those are purely decorative, guys!


Okay, looks like I've got to track down a boat. Um... better go enjoy the rest of the Howl-o-ween festivities, guys. I'll bring Gus and Maggie back to dry land soon. Somebody go calm down Stella, okay??


Happy Howl-o-ween, everyone!!

Happy National Cat Day!

This blog is usually reserved for the pups, but since today is National Cat Day, I wanted to take a moment to salute my kitty siblings.


Scribbles is the old man of the house. He was Momma's very furst pet on her own. He's a tough Chicago alley cat and has lived in more places than any of us -- all the way from Chicago down to Texas, living in different apartments with Momma and finally moving into our house. He's 15 years old. He started out really mean, and he's still like that to us pups sometimes! He hisses at us a lot, but we know he just has to act tough. He loves Momma more than anything in the world, and he snuggles with her when she's at the computer.


Can you believe my kitty sister Pigeon was once a stray? She lived outside Grandma and Grandpa's house, and Momma started feeding her. She was SO sweet that Momma knew she'd been a pet before and needed to come live in a house again. So she went to live with Momma and Scribbles! She's 11 years old now and quite the dignified lady. She was super-skeered of us pups when we first moved in, but she's gotten to know us now and will come snuggle with me sometimes! She loves to hang out on top of the kitchen cabinets and watch the world go by.

Our house wouldn't be quite the same without my kitty siblings! Happy National Cat Day to all the other cool cats out there.

We are glad he's not sick and doesn't have to fight so hard anymore, but we will miss him so much down here. Bye-bye, Benny. You'll always be my superhero!

Happy endings

Once nice thing about being a boxer ambassador for Legacy Boxer Rescue is that I get to tell you all about our happily ever afters. You may remember back in August me telling you about our Parvo Princesses, Luna and Celestia.


We rescued them as little bitty things from the shelter, and they soon developed the most skeery of puppy diseases, parvo. Princess Luna was given less than a 50/50 chance of making it. There were some long, skeery days, but BOTH of our princesses pulled through and soon found their boxer spirits at their foster home.

And guess what? BOTH our princesses have now found their furever homes!

Princess Celestia's new palace

I'm just so SO happy that both of our pretty little princesses have found their happily ever afters. This is what rescue's all about, folks. Hooray for all the pawesome folks at LBR who helped them find their new chance at life!

A little question for the ladies

It's that time of year where it's starting to get colder. Around here, it's very pleasant during the day still but can get a little chilly in the mornings. My cheapskate momma keeps the temperature in the house very low. Cinderella doesn't care, but sometimes I can't help shivering a little. Of course, that makes Momma pull out my sweater.


I keep telling her that it makes me look silly and preppy. I think I need something tough like a leather jacket instead. But Momma says that ladies like this look and I look hawt. So ladies of Blogville, your opinion please:

Hawt or not?

Momma did it again!

Sheesh. You know how when you're just starting to get a really good mud wallow, and the humans start yelling at you and usually make you take a B-A-T-H? And then if you rinse off all that yucky soap by taking a fresh dip in the mud, they get really mad? Yeah, well, apparently this is a rule with double standards. Look what Momma was doing yesterday.


I would've gotten in SO much trouble if I got that muddy, but she had people cheering for her instead! What is UP with that??? See, yesterday was something called a "mud run." There's this place called TNMRA that hosts mud runs every year near us, and this year LBR was their chosen charity. So LBR set up a table at every run, and we got a dollar for every single registration fee.

LBR volunteers working the table, with Pack Leader Sharon in the middle

Unfortunately, it was a really COLD day, so Momma was muttering lots of words that she really wasn't supposed to say when she was getting ready. She said she was shouting them when she was actually running. As punishment, she got squirted with water in a big hose. I hope she's sorry about it!


But I'm very proud of her hard work. It was a ruff run, especially with it being so cold. She said this one was a lot tougher than the first mud run she did back in March. But anything is made better if you have zombies show up in the end and do a Thriller dance.


'Nough said. :)


PeeS:
A very fond farewell to my dear furiend, Mr. Pip. I'll never furget our time together in Texas on your blog world tour, an dhow you were always willing to help out a new pup in Blogville. Run free at the Rainbow Bridge, buddy! You can have all the cheeseburgers you want now.

There may be other Mommas out there, but you're MINE and so you're the best.









Cinderella and I chipped in our treat money and got her a present.
