Happy Halloweiner Dog

Well my church had their annual Harvest festival with 80 game booths and thousands of pounds of candy for the kiddos! This year we had our first ever doggie costume contest. My friend Janay, who volunteers for Ridgeback Rescue and got me my sweet Big Dumb Puppy O'Reilly, helped me judge along with another friend.

There were 20 great entries and it was REALLY HARD to choose just 3 winners! Here are a few I actually got pictures of that turned out!

Here's Janay with her girl Cleo
both dressed as Harem Girls!
Cleo is the coolest ridgeback mix dog!
Cleo helped judge with Lakota.

The Ghostbuster pug won 1st prize.
Another Pirate dog won 3rd prize, but this one was cute too.

2nd place went to a young girl who dressed as a bee
with her two dogs but that pic came out all blurry.

We were told this guy's Jaildog costume was appropriate
cuz he's always getting in trouble! I don't know, he looks sweet to me!

Lakota approved of the evening

I wish more of the pics came out but these are about the best I have.

I'd like to thank the academy...

Furrybutts gave us this awesome award and I just haven't had time to post it! Thank you so much! I'd give it right back to them, especially after today's adorable Hans post!

Lots of my blogging friends in my warren list have already gotten it because I'm too slow these days at circulating it - but any blog on my list is the coolest blog I know! Yeah, i'm lazy... actually Buddy just has me all wore out! That dog has ENERGY!!

A friend showed me a new site the other day - Upside Down Dogs - Pretty funny stuff

But I just have to go into the other room to find my own upside down dog. Actually they're all over around here!

You may have noticed no upside down pic of Buddy - just getting him to LAY DOWN is a feat... the energy in that little guy is amazing!

What I'd really like to see is an upside down bunny! That's a feat!!! Here's Archi from several years ago -

Hope everyone is having a great week!

the other thing i'm doing...

i kind of fell into dog sitting! i've done it for friends and since i work at home i decided to let friends bring their dogs for "Doggie Daycare" for a small fee

It gets a little crazy here. One day i had 7 dogs! and they all got along great!

And this weekend we have our first overnight visitor. A lovely great dane named Mandi.

Cookie is a regular guest at Doggie Daycare every Tuesday and Thursday. We love having her, she's a sweet girl.

She even covers for me while I'm working if I have to step away for a few minutes!

Check out that drool!!!

up to my old tricks

Hey there all. Yes I've been gone a while. Life has really caught up with me!

Meet Buddy - He's a 2 y.o. neutered male Australian Stumpy Tailed Cattle Dog -

He was given to me by a gentleman at dog park that couldn't keep him. For the last few weeks I have been looking for a good forever home for him. A few have fallen through but I know that there is a great home for him. I'd keep him but 2 is my limit.

He's playful, energetic, silly, loyal, smart. He does amazing flips and jumps to catch a ball! He loves O'Reilly and Lakota and our daytime friend Cookie. (Yeah, I'm doing doggie day care now too!)

He needs a family that will take him on walks, runs, and/or hikes. Oh yeah, and lots of property and cattle to herd would be a major plus! He is housebroken, walks well on the leash and is eager to please.

If you know anyone in the Southern California area that would love to make this wonderful guy a part of their life send them my way!
