Wow !
  What a great "little" papawty we just attended. The guest of Honor/Host was @PepiSmartDog and what a wonderful job he did! Along with @FrugalDougal and the @SantaPawsDrive anipals,Pepi's special charity for the pawty was the Animal Welfare League of Queensland.This is one of the SantaPawsDrive shelters and the one where Pepi's mom found him! What a great way to start the Christmas Holiday season!

  It was another fun time for the anipals;plenty of goodies to nom,great music by the DJs and lots of quizzes to play and super pwises to win. Everybody got to visit with old friends and meet new anipals. Best of all once again we got to help the animals waiting in shelters for their forever homes.The target for Pepi's shelter was exceeded and the SantaPawsDrive is now over a third of the way to their target!

 I hope that if you have never attended a pawpawty before that you will join us for the next one! I guarantee that you will have a wonderful time.

Pepi,our furiend!

Poppy Dog and Hansee Bundee's Wedding

  Wow! What a wonderful pawpawty we just had! Everybody dressed up so beautifully (or handsomely,if you fellows prefer!) I bet sekurity was pleasantly surprised to find  almost no work!(well,except for Raven's wardrobe malfunction!)

  Evervybody talked and danced and ate and drank and pawtied for twenty-four hours in celebration of Poppy and Hans wedding. JavatheCat's wonderful catering for the wedding and Cookie Man's and my Flicka da Cookie Cafe served tons of elegant wedding fare,as well as helping to gather donations for Sunny Harbour. I wonder just how much Pink Champagne got consumed ?....snicker...

  The DJs are the best, the quizzes are so much fun, and the pwises are super! I hope all of you had as much fun as I did!

  Everyone started to gather early for the big moment,and plenty of hankies and spirits were passed around! It was a very merry occasion,and all were proud to attend! Everybody was thrilled when Frugal Dougal and Poppy came down the aisle, SirBarley and Hans waiting there!!

And,The Wedding!
This photo says it all!

My Turn, Finally! And I got lots of Pwises! I am the Luckiest Dog on Earth,and so Thankful to know all of you!

  Flicka and the Cookie man were so busy last week with the Flicka da Cookie Cafe that she didn't leave me any time to blog! Which wasn't too bad a thing since Ginger and I spent the time playing!

  Bruno,Hank and Brutus did a great job on #dudefest and a really fun time was had by all I'm sure.There was lots of good noms(TootyBrutie,anyone?) and BACON BEER! Everybody enjoyed that! Bruno drove a team of horses to the Dogmingo River with a load of hooch,bacon and regular. Everybody joined in to help him lighten the load! Lots of folks enjoyed having a cookie at the Flicka da Cookie Cafe! BuzzLucas and JavadaCat  did a great moonwalk to BillyJean blipped by LouPeb,and then BigBoyBosco did a Chippendale's dance on the bar to finish his hour barktending! Heard he's still missing pieces of clothing...snicker....Very exciting! Then the Poo-guns came out!...snicker...And their charity is getting a really nice surprise!

  Speaking of surprises! I got pawpawty pwises today from @frugaldougal!! So cool! I think I'm gonna have to share with the cats though,that fur looks suspiciously like it belongs on a cat toy! HA! there's a ball attached,it's mine!! AND I got Cookies from LuckyDogTreats !!(Those are all for me & Ginger ! Hurray!!)As soon as I can get my mom up off her lazy butt,we'll have some pics here...........I'm waiting mom!!......

Wow! I am honored to have such wonderful furiends!

Wow! This must be my Caturday!

  First,@RomeotheCat was kind enough to mention me and NCHS on his blog ,in his Shelter Appreciation Week series! Thanks Romeo! Remember folks we can all help in little ways,and our local shelters can use the help,so go help yours!

  And then I got an award from @Rumblepurr and @Inigoflufflebottom!

Thanks guys! @GeorgetheDuck and I are now honorary cats!

  Now the deal with this award is that when you get it,you have to tell 10 truthful things that others don't know about you and then pass it on to seven other furiends to do the same...

  Well, I don't know that there ARE ten things folks don't know about me, cause I talk all the time...



  ...OK,I'm thinking!...


  OK,OK,here ya go!

 1) My favorite game to play with my family is Keep Away!...snicker..I grab somebodies shoe and then run all over the house with it! The more they try to get it from me the faster I run! This technique is especially effective on Little Girl! My mom not so much,so I make sure to pull her shoe laces really tight so when she gets her shoe back she has to redo them or change her shoesize by at least one size!...snicker...

 2) We all have nicknames ~ Luna has earned the moniker of "The LunaTick" cause she is such a funny kitten! Rosie often gets called Ro-Ro, but I don't think it's because she's a little dinghy! Molly gets called Da Mol,but she is much too elegant to be a mobster's gal,and sometimes Mau-Mau,I hope that's just for the sound cats make and not because she's about to attack me!

 Ginger sometimes gets called Gin,because she is quite a genie when it comes to getting in and out of tiny spaces for such a big dog! But Flicka's is Houdini since she can get under and through spaces no other horse would even try, even little dogs can't get through some of them!

  3) Molly's favorite treat is Kitty Kaviar,Ginger's is anything she can eat!...snicker...mine is Ritz Crackers! This is another fun item to play Keep Away with! I steal the package away from Little Girl and then make her chase me all over the house to get them back! I usually get to keep the crackers when we're done as Little Girl says I've drooled on them...plan works perfect!

  4) Mom says Rosie and Vulture have the same birthday! I don't know that that is exactly the truth,but mom was there when Vulture hatched! She says that she didn't realize a bird could be so tiny,even just coming out of it's egg! (a little Cockatiel egg is only about 3/4 of an inch long!) We got Rosie when she was about eight weeks old,and that is how old Vulture was then,so they could have the same birthday!

  5) Vulture got her name because Snowflake and Princess, her parents tried too hard to keep her clean when she was little! She was the only egg that hatched so they kept cleaning the pinfeathers on her head til she was bald! Mom moved her to her own cage and hand fed her til she learned to eat her babyfood out of the bowl by herself. Rosie ate out of the bowl with her! They are still good friends.

  6) My registered name is for my dad, Jacob, who is Pt.Loma's Magic Mirror and that mom says the first picture she saw of me looked like I was sprinkled in gold dust! So I'm Magic Gold Dust!

  7) My real name Dolly comes from the movie "Hello Dolly" cause mom says I act just like that character! My breeder had wanted me to be called Melanie after the lady in "Gone With The Wind", she had named all the pups for that movie, but mom said I could never be that gentle! Either way I guess I'm a movie star...snicker...

  8) I like to swim! But not nearly as much as Ginger. When we go to the lake I swim a bit with mom, and then sun bathe on the boat. Ginger on the other hand is a swimming fool! Mom takes a 25' lunge line for a leash for her...she swims out as far as she can go and then swims back to the boat over and over and over and over and over...til she finally swims ashore and collapses on the beach. Five minutes later, there she goes again! All. Day. Long.

  9) My favorite toys include a pheasant and a raccoon,but my most favorite is a little formerly stuffed monkey that Ginger and I play tug-o-war with(she lets me win sometimes too!) Mom would never dare get rid of that monkey! I also like to get the cats' duckies and play Keep Away from the cats...snicker...

  10) Last but not least, our favorite place to be in the evenings is as close to mom as we can get! Ginger lays on her feet,I wrap myself around her heels.She doesn't dare move! Molly sits on the back of her chair,Rosie on her shoulder,and Luna when she is not helping mom type is in her lap! We make very sure she has a great time talking on twitter or playing Bejeweled on facebook!...snicker...

  OK ,seven furiends ~

 1) BorisKity He's out to save the world one kitteh at a time and a wonderful guy to know!

 2)Baby Patches Now I bet BP has been given this award many times,but maybe she has a few secrets left she can tell us,she is a cat after all !

 3)Brutus the Dane Fearless Leader along with @HanktheDoggy for #Dudefest who loves to give his opinion and drink Bacon Beer!

 4)Lou of @LouPeb he has written some really fun stuff at his blog and probably has gotten this award many times,but I bet he still has more fun stuff to tell us!

 5)Rocky of @RockumSockum. I think we might have to wait a day or two for Rocky's list 'cause he's still sick. But I bet his list will be interesting!

 6)Lainey Well,Lainey doesn't really have a blog,but I bet we all want to know about her cookies! So maybe she'll tell us at her site!

 7) BadAndy ! Yeah,BadAndy doesn't have a blog yet...Why not Andy??? He would be the funniest anipal blogger of all! If this little dog can do it anybody can...So we want to hear your 10 things we don't know about you. Do it! (Please?)

  Well that's it for today! I am so honored to be thought of by my furiends! hope you liked my list!


 UPDATE ~ Lainey does have a blog,her secretary just hasn't fixed the link yet to her other site! Lainey's blog ,that she's stealing from her mom too! ...snicker...

National Adopt a Senior Pet Month

Hi Everybody!

   November is Adopt a Senior Month! As you all know we lost one of our favorite seniors @PepiSmartDog back in September. Pepi proved that those old guys make wonderful additions to any family! His mom adopted him as a 10 year old,but they had over 8 years together,and loved each other dearly! So,if you have a space in your heart for a new member of your family, be sure and check out those "old" kittens and puppies.They have a lot of love to give!

  Also this month both @Romeo the Cat and @BorisKity have asked folks to adopt their local shelters! This is Romeos Challenge . Our local shelters need help now more than ever!

  So I thought you might like to meet Billy McPaw , he's the SpokesCat for my local shelter, the North County Humane Society. Billy is going to be getting his own Twitter account soon,so I look forward to talking with him then.

  Mom went there yesterday to take the homeless kitties some little mousie toys and give their staff some huge bags of kitty litter.Smelled like she played with lots of different kitties when she got home!She said the kittens were the most playful,but several of the adult cats were absolute purr-machines & loved the little toys and attention! Several of them found their way on to mom's lap or shoulder.Mom probably would have brought them all home, if dad wouldn't have killed her!(he says there are quite enough of us,thank you very much!)

 Mom took some pictures of the kittens~

Mom said these little guys acted just like hoomin kids! they would rather play with the package than the toys!

Mousie forgotten over there on the right,the kittens played with the bag the mousies came in,a sheet of paper,and mom's pen and keys!

This is Milo. He's playing with one of Luna's favorite toys here...snicker...

Arthur here captured and claimed that mousie as his own!

   Here's some more pictures of the kitties at NCHS that are looking for forever homes! Their website has pictures of all of their adoptable kitties! Hey, who knows,they might have just the one you need to make your family complete!

  So let's hear about your local shelter too! Go visit the doggies and kitties in your area that are still waiting to find their forever homes.You will have fun meeting them ,and they will enjoy it.Help if you can,but please visit,they love the company. Even if you can't adopt another animal yourself,you might even see one that would be purrfect for a friend!And don't forget those older guys, even ones with problems can be very special, worth the trouble, and will return your love ten-fold!


Update ~Baby Patches took some mousies to her shelter too!

Remembering the Eleventh Hour of the Eleventh Day of the Eleventh Month...and VetDogs

Wednesday, November 11, 2009 Veterans Day
In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky the larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die 
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

 Rosie and I just don't get this thing about hoomin wars,but then again, we are pretty pampered pets and have never had any reason to fight to live. Mom tried to explain it,but just what "modern civilization" means is beyond me!

 I guess what she was trying to tell us is that the world changed on 11/11/1918. About how a big fight between the hoomins made the world a smaller place,and everyone should try to get along better, as they were more interconnected than before somehow. But mom says that isn't how it works in real life. Those hoomins may have called it "The War to End All Wars', but hoomin nature being what it is, that didn't happen. So there will probably continue to be wars until we are all at the Rainbow Bridge.

 So, countries need soldiers to keep their hoomins safe from other hoomins that want to hurt them, just like our moms and dads keep us safe from things like traffic and other animals or hoomins that might want to hurt us.I don't understand why that is, but there ya go.I do know it is true, bad hoomins do hurt animals and other hoomins.So until that day the hoomins stop hurting animals and each other, I guess there will be wars.

  Soldiers now, I can understand! They're the guard dogs!

Mom says we honor the soldiers that have served to protect our country on November 11th every year, and that day is called Veteran's Day(not to be confused with the V.E.T!). And that it started in 1919 to honor the soldiers that had served in "The Great War".

 I'm glad they have a special day for that, but I would hope that people would honor folks that keep them safe EVERY day! And help if they can, those guard dogs that have been injured helping to keep us safe!

That's where VetDogs comes in! They provide Guide Dogs and Service Dogs to disabled veterans.This is a wonderful way for us dogs to thank soldiers who have given a portion of their lives, and suffered for it, so that we can live so pampered a life. So if you can please donate to VetDogs!

So ask your hoomins to remember to honor the Vet (not THAT one) on Veteran's Day and every day for helping to keep us safe.
