Sardines for Breakfast and 'Shake'!

So as most of you know, mom was given the idea to feed me some sardines once a week cause itd be good for me.. so when she went grocery shopping the other night guess what she picked up? Thats right, sardines. YUK....







So as you can see Im feeling pretty darn skeptical of the matter.




Mom opened the can and I could smell that ... it really didnt smell half bad.





OMG THESE ARE DELICIOUS! Watch me chomp away, I wouldnt even let mom take them away to put them on a plate I just wanted to eat them out of the can hehe..



And here is a quick vid of me doing 'Shake!'

Thats it for now! Take care everyone.

Beastie Boutique



Hey everyone! Usually I try to space out my posts but I was sooooo excited about this that I have to share it with you all! So today mom and I went out in the BLAZING hot weather to do some earrands. I told mom many times I was sooooo hot and uncomfortable but she was doing all she could (I made her put the Aire-Conditioner on HIGH hehe). Anywho theres this really neat pet store somewhat close to us called "Beastie Boutique"that mom and I decided to check out. Unfortunately mom didnt have her camera with, but the main point is that I am SOOOO excited about is that they gave me .......





...........



FREE FOOD!! Thats right everyone, free food samples mmm-mmm!






The people there were very nice, and they taught mom some really interesting stuff like the RAW diet which weve heard is pretty common and to give me sardines once a week....? You really gonna do that mom...?? Oh well atleast she got me this to make up for it, yum! Thats a cheesey twist and a mini yip.



There was even a Beagle/Basset hound mix boy in there named who was willing to let me bite his ears a little bit. I hope I get to see him again soon. Anyway, thats it for now!!

NEW STUFFIES!





Hey everyone! Guess what? Recently Ive been doing so well on chewing everything, mom FINALLY decided to get me some new stuffies! Here they are, all three of them! An eco-friendly reindeer (I told mom it HAD to be eco-friendly) and a weird red long loofa toy, as well as a fleecey rope! I guess its suppose to help clean my gums and stuff so yay hehe! Plus I like the colors.





This is what my Yak looks like after just a week! Also in the photo of all of my toys you can see my sock monkey also took some damage...(mom: He's missing an ear and a limb!)





So now I have a very bootiful selection of toys! I couldnt pick which one is my favorite because they are all good!




So thanks a bunch mom for the new stuff, have a great day everyone!

Guess who's home!!

First of all sorry I havent posted sooner, I have been keeping mom EXTREMELY busy! And so as most of you already know, I landed safe and sound in Washington on Thursday night. The aire-plane ride was very scary at first, but since I had my kong with me with yummy peanut butter and a Ziggie inside I kept somewhat busy. Mom and her mom, and my moms friend all came to the cargo area to pick me up. Mom was sooo nervous, and so was I! But most of all I just wanted to get out of my crate after being stuck in there for so long. Then soon enough, some man picked up my crate, set it on the counter of the enterence and said "One puppy!" which is when my mom and her mom both sprung up to see me! Mom says I looked exactly like I did in the pictures, I dont know what else she was expecting hehe. Mom tried to take a picture but I was so squirmy it came out blurry but Ill show it anyway.


We then went home and mom let me spend half of the car ride in her lap, and the other half in my moms moms' lap. I have been chewing on ALL of my toys plus the carpet, shoes, drapes, blankets, chairs and everything inbetween that suits my fancy. Mom has been teaching me things like sitting, and laying down on command which I can now do both already. Heres a video of me sitting down for mom. You also hear her say something about a bath which well get to in a minute.

Shes also been trying to get me to pee outside which has happened a couple times (I accidentally made a couple of messes on the carpets) whats the deal with peeing outside anyway?

And here is a picture of me being calm (mom: finally!)

The classic Airedale head cock



And then here are some photos of me in the bathtub.





Well thats about it for now, Im gonna beg mom for a walk and so now youre all up to date! Ill have more photos coming soon, and Ill apologize ahead of time if were not on for a couple of days, mom just has no time now cause of me hehe!

17th Annual Walk Run for the Animals

Hey everyone!



Today was the 17th annual Walk Run for the Animals. The event was held in a beautiful, lush park in Downtown Vancouver, Washington. The purpose was to raise money for the Southwest Humane Society http://www.southwesthumane.org/ (to which at the end of the event made around $7,000 or more!) Unforuntately, I was unable to attend, but I told my mom to go ahead without me and to have fun, so she did!


She saw tons of really sweet doggies that I would have loved to have met (so mom you owe me, were going for sure next year!)



There were tired dogs...









Long dogs...







And look, mom even saw a sweet Aire-girl! Ill admit Im a little jealous to show this picture but mom insists...





Thats her recieving the pet and attention from my mom I should be getting...





Also the countdown is on! 4 more days until I relocate to my new home in Washington with my new family. I recieved my Kong toy in the mail today so here is a picture of me with it, I love it, so thanks a bunch mom!
