Helping at School

On Saturday mornings, Mom goes to the Western PA Humane Society to help her friend Bob teach obedience classes. Penny has gone with her before, but this week I got to go too!!!



This is the crappy part. Penny & I had to stay in this ExPen while Mom helped the other puppies learn stuff.



But the coolest part is, Penny & I got to wrassle after school and we had so much fun!! I love my big sister Penny SOOOOOO much. She is totally the bestest big sister EVER!

Tags

We've been a little lazy & have gotten behind on our Tags, but we haven't forgotten!
The Kapp Pack & Clover tagged us for what vehicle best resembles or shows your personality.

Well, mine is obvious...a Lamborghini. I'm sleek. I'm fast. And I have expensive tastes.




Lola would definitely be a Mazda Miata. I've got 3 words for you...Zoom, Zoom, Zoom. Enough said.





And Sherman, well DUH! He's a Sherman Tank. The big Chub just bulldozes his way through anything that's in his way (including me). And he weighs a lot.





Clover also tagged us for 5 nicknames we call our Mom. Well, this is what I call her:

1. Jenny
2. Personal Trainer
3. Canine Chef Extraordinaire
4. Treat Lady
5. Mom

I don't know who hasn't been tagged yet, so I'm tag some Pugs....Seadra & Zoe, Duke & Gidget and The Four Pugs. You're It!

More Pictures!

So here is the lake. Mom took this picture off the dock at our place. What she did not take a picture of is me jumping IN the lake.

I kind of scared myself so I wouldn't do it again but I did wade around in the shallow part (and drank lots of water!).


I had a great time herding the waves.

OK, so this is not a picture of the lake, but nothing ends a post like a nice fluffy butt shot!

Finally! Vacation pics!!

It was great!! Let me tell you...I did NOT want to come home. Pink Piggie & I are gonna tell you all about it. Try not to be too jealous.



First I got all my stuff together. I have my own cooler filled with lambieables, chicken backables and a big marrow bone for late night munching.


And this is all my gear. Yes, I took my own dog bed and blankie. I have a backpack, 2 leashes and the super cool travel bowl Sophie sent me earlier this year. I am all SET!


See you girls! I probably won't miss you (maybe a little...NOT!)

And we're off! I am an excellent co-pilot. My exceptional sense of direction is much better than any GPS system on the market. I told Dad to just follow my nose.

OMDoG!! We're almost there. I am SOOOOOO excited!


This is the view from the deck of our super cool log cabin. You can see the lake a little. I have more pictures to post of the lake later. And video of me swimming.

OK...I'm not really happy in this picture because Mom insisted I pose and all I want to do is go hunting in the forest! There is a huge park a couple of minutes away and I'm ready to go NOW!



Now this is more like it!



I spread my pee mail all over the park.


I got to check out some waterfalls and bubbly water.

Mom & I stopped for a little rest...she gets tired pretty quickly.


Here's a little family portrait. See what a nice family...Mom, Dad & Sherman. Just like it should be. No white dog. No brown dog. Just a very handsome black dog.


For dinner the humans ate grilled steakables. I was such a good boy, all the ladies shared their some steak with me.


And at night, I just hung out on the deck and chewed on my bone.

I have more pictures from the trip to post later. Mom hasn't sorted through them all yet but will get to it later this week.

And I know I haven't been by to check out everyone's blogs...but I'll be making my rounds soon!!

I'm in MerryLand!!

Hiya EveryPup!! I just wanted to sent a quick note that I have arrived in MerryLand!

I don't have any pictures to post yet because my Mom forgot the camera cord, but let me tell you much fun I'm having already!

When we first got here, we walked down to a HUGE lake and I was hanging out on the dock watching the waves when I decided...what the heck? and I jumped right into the water! At first I went the hole way under & Mom thought I was going to drown. But I popped right back up and swam to the shore. It was SO much fun. Then I chased the waves all over the shore and and ate some water.

We have lots of big plans for tomorrow and I will have a bunch of pictures later.

Hope you all have a great weekend! See you Monday!!

It's almost Pawty Time!

Hello my Pretties!



Yinz guys may think I'm going to miss Sherman this weekend...especially given his new-found fondness of me. I'll admit, I like sitting next to him without getting grumped at.


But I am very much looking forward to our Big 70s Disco Pawty!!! I'm hoping everypup can come. If they don't, I will spend the entire night looking like this.


We're all SET! The ABBA tribute band is booked, the disco ball is arriving Saturday afternoon, I broke out the lava lamp AND my special bell-bottomed leisure suit!!

I really hope MY Marvin can make it...and MY BFF Tadpole. And MY Pirate Zimmie. And MY Fabulous friend Ruby. And MY Diva gal Asta. And MY Black Furry Friend, Wally (Ha! Take that Shermie!). And all of MY (and Penny's) DWB bestest friends!!

Can you hear me calling for you????

See ya at the Pawty...Saturday Night!

Just take those old records off the shelf...

Sherman thinks he is soooo sneaky. The big stupid head is not the sharpest tool in the shed. He's been carrying around Pink Piggy talking about their big vacation with Mom & Dad this weekend. Apparently he has not grasped the concept of WHISPERING!

Lola & I aren't mad. Grandma is coming to stay with us on Friday night & then we are making BIG PLANS for Saturday when we will be left to our own devices! Think Risky Business...minus the hookers. (Stanley, don't go getting any bright ideas about dancing around in your underwear!) We're having a giant Pawty!!

We're breaking out the lava lamp and hanging the disco ball...it's a 70s Theme Pawty!!! Just to get you in the mood:



There will be a door prize for the best Disco Outfit!!!

We figure, we'll whoop it up here Saturday night, rest on Sunday & then head up to NYC to Pawty with Asta, Cowboy Style.

Stay tuned for more Pawty details later this week!

Shhhhhhhhh...

Happy Monday everypup & hamsterrier!! I have the greatest news...but you all have to promise not to tell the girls!


This weekend Mom & Dad and some of our friends are going to MerryLand!! There is a huge lake there and apparently a very Deep Creek. And we're staying in this huge house!! This is really the actual house!


Mom says were going to go hiking & maybe rent a boat...and I'm might get to try swimming!!

I get to pick one of my housemates to keep me company on the trip....let's see, Lola or Penny? Penny or Lola? How bout.....

Neither!! A HA HA HA HAAAAAA!!! Penny & Lola have to stay home because they are very annoying and will ruin all of my fun.

I've decided to take my favorite stuffie, Pink Piggie. Dot gave me Pink Piggie and it's my best friend in the house. I don't look all that happy in this picture because Mom just told me Piggie is getting a bath before the big trip. I think she smells perfect just the way she is!


"Piggie, would you like to go to MerryLand with me????"


Ahhhhhh, I'm drunk with excitement!! This is what my face will look like the whole way there...only 4 more days!


And remember, the girls don't know yet...so don't tell them!


(Note from Ferndoggle...we're taking this long weekend with 3 other couples, all of which like our dogs, but aren't as crazy about them as we are. Sherman is really well behaved and no trouble at all to have around. And to be honest, I'm looking forward to having some one on one time with my little man.

The girls will be staying at home & Grandma is coming to stay over & spoil them. So no need to worry!!)

I don't think this is funny at all

For some reason, Mom thinks it's very funny when my teeth get stuck on my lip. She took this picture of me and laughed and laughed.


She sings this song to me "She's got jooooowwwwlllly lips...and fuuuuuuuunnny teeth". My teeth are NOT funny. They are unique. So what if I have a huge underbite. So what if my lips get stuck in my teeth. So what if my teef aren't perfect. I'M STILL A DIVA!!!!

And in true Diva fashion...now I will pout.

He's BACK!!

I was just digging new holes and laying in the cool dirt...minding my own business when I heard a strange sound...



Penny heard it too and started looking around the yard...search for the source of the annoying "TchTchTchTchTchTchTCHTCHTCHTCH..."


Then we looked up.




That STOOPID squirrel is BACK. In. MY. Treeeee!!!!!

I thought if I opened my mouth wide enough, he'd fall from his perch and land in my mouth!



Penny tried it too but he just stayed up there...mocking us.


Penny, you take one side, I'll take the other & we can try to stare him down.

As you can see, it didn't work.

video

He'll be back. It's prime "nut gathering" season. And when he does...we'll be ready.

Happy Barkday to our Daddy!!

Today is our Dad's Barkday. He is 149 years old (that's 31 in people years).

He looks pretty good for someone so ancient!


Tonight he is leaving us at home all alone while he goes & plays fetch with his friends. He's going to eat lots of chicken wingables and drink fizzy brown water. But he takes such good care of us, we'll give him a night out...just this once.


Happy Barkday Dad!!

The City of Sherman...population 10,000

I am totally jealous of my Pittsburgh buddy, Juneau as he has a whole entire CITY named after him!! I got to thinking about it and decided I would make a proposal to Mayor Ravenstahl. Pittsburgh should be renamed...Sherman, PA!!!Has a nice ring to it, don't you think?

Considering we just had the 10,000th visitor to our blog, think of all the good press I could give our fair city.



So I was doing some research on the Internets & discovered there already IS a City named Sherman...in TEXAS!!




Holy Crap! I could move the whole family to Texas and become the Mayor of Sherman & Dot Spot could be my first lady!!

And I could make all kinds of new laws...the first thing I would make illegal is the Furminator. There would be free meatables for EveryPup! And a Dog Park on every corner. And I would give Penny & Lola to Legacy Boxer Rescue and make them find new places to live!! Or they could just go stay with Cubby.

Look out Sherman, Texas...there's a new Sheriff in town!!!

Steelers Rock!

Sundays in our house are the greatest during Football season. Our team is the Pixburgh Steelers and they are the greatest team in the whole wide world. The first year I lived with Mom & Dad...they won the SUPER BOWL! I'm a good luck charm.

I got in gear & waited for all of Mom & Dad's friends to come over.



This is where we watch the game. It's called the Man Cave because it's really dark & that's where Mom makes Dad go to play his video games or watch hours & hours of football.

But when people come over, Mom & Dad fill it up with FOOD and I walk around & ask people to share their snackables.


We had just started watching a game when my Auntie Kristen showed up...DRESSED. LIKE. THIS!


Now Auntie Kristen is super nice & I like her a lot because she lets me give her kisses all over her face, but she is not in Black & Gold...the Steelers signature colors. And worse, she dressed in brown & orange and wearing a Cleveland Browns bandana!!! Bleh!

I can't believe Mom didn't throw her right out the door!! But she got to stay. Don't worry, I made her suck to me & share her pizza. And...the sweetest revenge. We won! HaHaHa! Take that Auntie Kristen!

It was such an exciting day! I completely wore myself out.


Here We Go Steelers, Here We Go! Let's make it a 6 Pack!
