Jessie's heart belongs to...


We visited Grandma and Grandpa this weekend, and Jessie sure poured on the charm for Grandpa! He's never been a big dog fan, but he kept talking about how sweet she was. Grreat job, Jessie! We also spent some quality time snoozing and playing with toys. (Toys at Grandma's house are just inherently better. It's a fact.)

I hope your weekend was grreat too!

You convinced her!

Thanks to everyone who weighed in on our Travel Tuesday post. After reading everyone's advice, Momma has booked our hotel for the BAR (Blogville Awesome Retreat) in June! We're going to do some research on a good halfway point to stop both ways so we can book that hotel too. (Momma loved the idea of renting an RV, but the cost seemed a little high, especially with all the extra gas it would use.) We'd love any more travel advice you might have as time passes. Momma's going to get a soft-sided travel crate for the trip, for Jessie in the hotel and to have at the BAR just in case one of us needs a little time-out from all the excitement.

BAR, here we come!! 

We're SO excited and can't wait to see all our furiends in the furs!! So who else is thinking about making the trip?

By the way... don't furget that TODAY is the voting for King & Queen of the Derby over at Dory's Backyard! Be sure to vote for me and Jessie!

Can't be wordless, it's National Dog Day!

OMD, how could I be wordless today, when it's OUR day?! Today is NATIONAL DOG DAY, which means the whole day is all about US! (I don't really see how this is different from any other day, but it IS.)

So to celebrate, I thought I'd share a couple of pictures from our recent photoshoot. I think I mentioned that Jessie and I are going to be in next year's LBR calendar. We had to get our pictures taken for that, and Momma thought it would be a grreat time for some family pictures too.

 I know. It's hard to handle this much gawjuss in one place.

 Jessie still needs to learn how to pose. She is NOT a professional like me!

Case in point. THIS is how you pose, kid.

 She finally got it! This was the best shot of the two of us. It's probably going to be the one in the calendar.

And the money shot! We loves our momma!! 

I hope you enjoyed the pictures! There are more, so we'll share them in another post. Enjoy National Dog Day everybody!!

PeeS: Momma was updating her countdown to her next marathon, and she just had to share this pic! BOL

Travel Tuesday Questions

Hi there, folks! Since today is Travel Tuesday, I thought it would be pawfect to ask all my friends out there fur some advice! See, Jessie and I REALLY want to go to BAR, the Blogville Awesome Retreat. Momma wants to go too, but she's worried about stuff she calls "logistics".

To get to the BAR, the map thingies tell us it will be about a 12 hour drive.Jessie and I are super good pups in the car, but we've never driven anywhere for NEARLY that long before. My top time is about 3 hours, and Jessie less than two. Momma knows she's have to make more rest stops for us but isn't sure how much that'll add to travel time.

And speaking of rest stops. Momma will be the ONLY human with us, so she's worried about things like how she goes in for HER rest stops. She can't take us into the fast food places or convenience stores she usually goes into, so she doesn't really know how that'll work.

With a drive that long, we're also going to have to stay in a hotel that night, plus the hotel at the BAR itself. We've also never stayed in a hotel, only at Grandma's house or Auntie's. Momma has no idea how we'll behave or what she should do to make us the most comfortable.

So we're turning to YOU, our pawesome furiends of Blogville. We know that lots of you travel a whole bunch, so I told Momma you would have some advice for us that would set her mind at ease. Don't let me down!

This sign stinks!

Well, kid, I guess you'd better take off.

Okay, just one DOG now, no DOGS. Can I go in now?

Girl time!

Just so you don't feel too sorry for Momma Tianna yesterday, she DOES get some breaks from the puppies. She and LBR Foster Mila have become besties. Sometimes you need a gal pal to hang out with!

Foster Friday

LBR Foster dog Momma Tianna is wearing the same expression as every parent waiting for school to start again.

I don't know who finally appeased the weather gods, but it feels GRRRREAT here in Texas!! We went from highs in the 100s to a high of 88 yesterday and 84 today! OMD, it feels so pawesome out. So guess what we did last night?

 Yup, Momma came home from work, changed, and took us out on a WALK right away! We didn't have to wait another 87 hours for the weather to cool down a little. And we walked and walked and walked for ages, a triple extra long walk. It was grreat!!

I hope the weather stays like this for a while!

Momma's view

For some reason, Momma thought she didn't have a grreat view of the TV last night during American Ninja Warrior.

I don't know what she was complaining about. I could see just fine.

Is it really Monday?

Please don't make me Monday. Quick, close your eyes and pretend it's still the weekend!

Goodbye to a furiend

Momma and I are just devastated this morning to hear that our good furiend, LBR alum Drake, passed away. We're sending thoughts of comfort and love to his pawrents and his little sister Trinity today.

It's official!

Yup, that's Momma signing Jessie's OFFICIAL adoption paperwork!! She's been ours in our hearts for a while now, but we were finishing up her medical issues before she could be officially adopted. And now she is ours FUREVER. We were so happy about it, we had to throw a pawty!

Yup, that's a pupcake fur us to share, and snacks fur our guests. That was the second best pawt, after the adoption itself. Look who came!!

Yup, our Auntie came!! And Auntie Jess and My Boy! What a grreat time we had!

Auntie Jess and my Boy brought Jessie some fun new toys too. (We both had fun playing with them, but Momma didn't get any pictures of me doing it. She didn't want you to think I was left out!)

The pupcake was DELICIOUS.

 Here is Jessie's official adoption pawtrait with Momma.

We needed to get a full family shot for our Happy Home picture to send to LBR. I just couldn't contain myself. I loves my new sissy!!

Then I wanted to show Jessie how pawesome my Boy is at wrestling!

 Jessie preferred just getting lovings from the aunties.

But then Jessie decided to try wrestling with Auntie at the end!

And Pigeon got her lovings in too.

It was a pawesome day, but SO exhausting!!

We are so happy to make Jessie part of our family FUREVER. Her full name is Jessalyn Ella, so that Cinderella lives in her too.She's a grreat sissy, and I can't wait to start our furst full day being a FUREVER FAMILY!
