Laissez les bon temps roulez!

Momma is getting her booty kicked by allergies, and I still say Jessie is TOO YOUNG to be going out for Mardi Gras beads! So we'll just say LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL, and leave you with this memory of Mardi Gras past...

Sister playtime

Momma gets so entertained watching Pigeon and Jessie play sometimes. Remember Pigeon used to be so skeered of dogs that she hid on top of the cabinets for TWO YEARS after I joined the family?? She and Jessie have really bonded, and they like to play. It usually goes something like this.

"Hey, I see you there, Jessie! Playtime?"
"Nope, I'm just being a cute innocent little puppy..." 

"That doesn't really seem like you."
"Look at how cute I am. Look at the cute!" 

"OMC, you got me again!!" 

It's seriously adorable. Jessie just kind of lays her head nearby, looking cute. Pigeon will drift closer and look curiously. Jessie will look cute some more. Pigeon will come up and start nudging Jessie's head. Then Jessie will jump up and start moving her head all over Pigeon's body, very gently. Then she lays right back down and does it again!

Today, Jessie and I are recovering from another weekend down at Auntie's. While Momma and Auntie are busy with their Renny-sauce faire stuff, we spend the WHOLE time playing and going kerazy with our cousins. So by Monday morning...

"Move? You cannot be serious. Go to work, we'll stay here."
"What -- what he said....zzzzzzzzz...."

Momma called me a jerk!

Can you believes that???

So there I was last night, lying in bed all cuddled up with my momma. And I was panting pretty heavily. Even though I hadn't been running a bunch or anything, just laying around. And I kept panting for five minutes, ten, twenty. By thirty, Momma was crying, thinking something was wrong with my heart or something. She emailed some of her LBR friends, who suggested I was hot. She said no, if Casey's hot he just moves to lay at my feet or gets off the bed for the dog bed, but he's staying snuggled next to me. But she tried turning on the fan anyway.

And I stopped panting.

Momma cried some more and called me a jerk for worrying her. Can you believes that?! I was just trying to snuggle with my momma when she was OBVIOUSLY upset, even though I was so hot, and she called me a JERK for it!!

So close!

Jessie and I stepped up the campaign this morning, and we almost had Momma convinced to stay with us instead of going to work. The trick was, we got her to lay back in bed and then we curled up super close and comforting.

Jessie took her feet, and I curled up on her arm and chest. You know, just close enough to stare soulfully into her eyes.

We were SUPER close! We laid there for ages. But finally Momma got up and rushed into her work clothes and out the door. SIGH. Anyone else have suggestions?

Look who came!

Hey folks, guess who came to visit me and Jessie (but mostly ME) this week??

YES! It's My Boy and Auntie Jess!! They came over for our Valentine's Day tradition -- Chinese food and classic horror movies.

I loves hanging out with My Boy! He's the BEST. And Jessie thinks Auntie Jess is pretty cool too.

There were LOTS of treats -- mostly human ones, but we got our share too!

What a pawesome night!

Isn't he gawjuss? We're so proud of him! WE think he should've won Best in Show too, but Rumor the German Shepherd who won was sure handsome too. Congrrats to all the winners!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day to all you pups and kits and everything else out there! Love is in the air, but there's also a hint of CHAOS! Jessie is still primping for the big K-OSS dance. Grrls take furever, don't they?! I know she's in good paws with our responsible and gallant Mayor Emeritus Stanley, so I'm heading to pick up my date Hailey...

Chicks dig cars. After I pick her up, we're going to have a nice dinner at the Top of Blogville Ristorante.

As you can see, Hailey and I thought about our color scheme in advance. Because we're going just as furiends, we're both wearing rainbows in honor of our lost loves up at the Rainbow Bridge. Ciara and Easy, we're thinking of you tonight!

Well, Hailey and I made our big entrance! Who will we see at the dance? Have fun, everybody, and enjoy the K-OSS!!

Weekend fun

They started the training workshops for the Renny-sauce faire Momma works at, so we've started our weekend trips to Auntie's house! Auntie lives right by the faire, so we stay with her. That way, when Auntie and Momma go to faire all day, we have a whole big playdate with all our cousins.

We had lots of excitement, because Auntie's dog Benny got out when we came in, so Momma and Auntie had to go run around looking for him. We dogs greeted each other and played HARD until they got back. (With Benny safe and sound. And tired.) So we all kinda chilled after that.

 Auntie's dogs River and Simon

We're all very excited for Valentine's Day tomorrow. The K-Oss dance should be a BLAST! Jessie wanted to show Stanley how much she LOVES the bones he gave her.

She gnawed at it until there wasn't a SPECK left for a certain big brother to share. HMPH! See y'all at the dance, everyone!

More exciting mail!

Guess WHAT? We thought that it was a totally pawesome week getting mail from Princess Leah. But then yesterday we got another package AND another card!!

"This one is for ME! I can see CASEY written on the card." 

"OMD, it's a Valentine from sweet Hailey! I'm a lucky guy to be taking her to the dance." 

"It's my turn now, Casey!! That package says JESSIE on it, and I can smell it's from my man Stanley!" 

"OMD, he wrote this card with his own paws, just look! And TWO pressies inside!" 

"Oh, I'm blushing. What a sweet card." 

"Stanley sent me some nommy bones and a beeYOUtiful Valentine's necklace to wear! Thank you so much, Stanley, I loves it!!!"

We both can't wait for the Valentine's K-Oss dance next week. It's going to be a blast!!

Love from abroad!

OMD, you'll never guess what turned up in our mailbox!

Sniff sniff... 

It was ROYAL mail, all the way from England! And Royal Mail means just one thing -- Princess Leah sent us love! She told us all about a totally pawesome commercial for a British department store this Christmas starring Buster the Boxer. But since Christmas is over, Buster didn't have any place to go. Princess Leah said she knew just the place.

With us!

 Three smiling boxers!

Momma said that Buster is a furiend, not a chew toy, so he's hanging out up top of our fireplace. It's weird, 'cause Jessie and I can't reach him very well up there, but he looks like he's having fun! Thanks, Princess Leah, for sending us such a pawesome new buddy!

I also run regular Safety Drills to make sure we all know what to do in any type of emergency. My door is always open if you have any suggestions for keeping Blogville safer!

Oh, hi there! It's me, Jessie, your Director of Furiends in Furever Homes! My job is to help educate all the pawesome folks of Blogville about how they can help their local shelters and rescues. Someday I dream that ALL furiends will have a furever home of their own. Until then, I'll be working tirelessly...and sometimes staring at the picture of my sweetie Stanley.
