Once Upon a Time!

Today is Lord Shiloh and Lady Shasta's Fairy Tale Day!


Okay, how do these start? Oh, I know!

Once Upon a Time...


There was a beeYOUtiful princess trapped in a tower.


"But Casey, I don't want to be a princess.  I'm a cowgirl!"

"This is a fairy tale, Jessie. Fairy tales have beeYOUtiful princesses, not cowgirls!"

"I thought that accuracy was important in storytelling."

"Not in fairy tales! Now hush and let me tell the story."


The beeYOUtiful -- and very pouty -- princess was sad because

"Because she had to be a stupid ol' princess instead of a cowgirl, right?"


The beeYOUtiful COWGIRL princess

"That's better!"

was very sad because she was locked all alone with no toys or treats or stuffies or anything.


"OMD!! Casey, this is a skeery story!! What did the beeYOUtiful cowgirl princess DO?!?!"

The beeYOUtiful cowgirl princess knew that a strong brave handsome knight would save her someday. Unfortunately, he was delayed by the evil sign dragon outside the tower.


But the strong brave handsome knight would not be thwarted, and eventually he made it past perils untold to find the beeYOUtiful cowgirl princess in her tower.


"OH Casey! I mean, strong brave handsome knight! I KNEW you woulds save me. There are no stuffies here at ALL, did you know that?!?!"

So the strong brave handsome knight took the beeYOUtiful cowgirl princess by the paw and led her out of the tower.


"Jessie, why are you rolling on the grass?"

"I'm celebrating my freedom!"

"There's still a dragon to face! We don't have time for rolling on the grass!"

"If YOU'D been locked in a tower with no stuffies or treats or anything, you'd seize the moment and roll on the grass!"



So EVENTUALLY -- as in when SOMEONE stopped rolling in the grass -- the strong brave handsome knight walked right past stood BRAVELY up to the dragon and won the beeYOUtiful cowgirl princess's freedom!


"Oh THANK YOU, strong brave handsome knight! You're my HERO!!!"


The beeYOUtiful cowgirl princess went to her new castle

"Rodeo!"

went to her new rodeo and had every toy she could ever dream of to play with.


And the strong brave handsome knight went home to his OWN stuffie and decided the darned beeYOUtiful cowgirl princess could just rescue HERSELF next time!

My weekend pack!

So yesterday I showed everyone a picture of my new pack!


Well, my weekend pack, at least! Yup, it's that time of year when Momma has started training for her Renny-sauce faire. So every weekend, Jessie and I hop in the car and go down to Auntie's house. She lives about an hour away, and she has SIX dogs! In the picture above, you see River on the chair, Simon walking in front of her, and Frankie laying by me and Jessie. River loves Momma more than anything. I love to play with her too!

This is Benny. He's a moose! He's so much fun to run after around the yard, BOL! He lurves Jessie and is always following her.


 That's me chilling with my buddy Bebe. She's the curmudgeon of the group, but she loves Momma so we get along.


Finally there's my BFF Penny. Momma calls her my Mini-Me because we're always hanging out together and chilling.


And of course there's Auntie!! She's the best part of visiting, even more than chasing Benny around her HUGE yard and cuddling with my bestie. We loves her bunches.


We're going to be pretty quiet on weekends until Momma's Renny-sauce faire is over with. (They train until the end of March, then the faire runs through the end of May.) As you can see, we're pretty busy!

Blanketed with love!

A new group has started working with LBR. They're called Blanketing Boxers With Love. Their volunteers make gazillions of blankets that they send to boxer rescues all over. The blanket belongs to the foster dog, and that gives them something familiar to take with them to their furever home. Isn't that a pawesome idea??


LBR foster Kinsler is sure loving her new blankie! Thanks, Blanketing Boxers With Love!!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day to all my dear Blogville furiends! I hope to see all of you at the pawrade a little later. Jessie has already gone to help Stanley, Murphy, and Ruby with their float. For me, I'm heading out to pick up my sweet Ciara a little early so we can have a nice private dinner before the pawrade.



Thank you for being my Valentine's date, Ciara. I'm so glad we get to have this time together! I brought you some flowers too.


Now let's go enjoy the pawrade!!

My heart is twitterpated!

OMD, folks, Jessie here! You'll never GUESS what happened yesterday! Momma brought in the mail, and there was a card in it JUST FOR ME!!! Not for me AND Casey like at Christmas, but for ME!! And when she opened it...

 
Oh my, it was a sweet Valentine's card from my handsome Stanley! He's SUCH a gentleman! I'm so excited to be riding in the Valentine's Pawrade with him. I had to give the card a little kiss.



Thank you, Stanley, I LOVE it! I made Momma put it up where I can see it ALL the time. Sunday can't come soon enough!

Krewe of Barkus

Heya pups! Mardi Gras is this week, and here in my hometown, that means one thing -- the Krewe of Barkus! The Krewe of Barkus is a dog-based Mardi Gras celebration the Sunday before Mardi Gras. Every year we have a costume theme and a parade around the downtown square. Can you guess our theme this year?


It was A Salute to Literature! I was dressed as Jamie from the Outlander series. Momma and I love watching that together, and she's read me some of the books. There were a whole bunch of folks pawticipating. Some of them really went all out.


The boxer here is dressed as the Cheshire Cat, complete with colored fur, and her family was all Wonderland themed.


It was so nice to spend some time with Momma one-on-one!


But by the end of the day, I was one tired Scotspup.


PeeS: Apparently everyone recognized the famous blogger in their midst. Momma's been hearing from her friends all day that I was on the NEWS this morning! They did a bit on the Krewe of Barkus, and apparently I was in it. Momma's looking for a clip. But it was on Fox4 News.

Are you ready for some football?


Jessie and I are ready to cheer on the Puppy Bowl!! Oh, and I hear there's some other teams playing too. Some horsies and kitties? Yeah, we might watch them a little too. But it's mostly about the Puppy Bowl!
