Snow Days!

Hi buddies!

     We had a bit of a snow storm this weekend. Not much in accumulation, but it did get icy. We were very glad that there weren't any travel plans for us! Mom was happy she didn't have to commute to work in this stuff too!

    So we spent some time in the yard, I was bundled up in my green coat to keep the chill off me. I spent most of the time out there looking for my boyfriend neighbor Ricardo. I know he would have loved to have seen me in my coat! But mom said everyone was busy getting ready fur Christmas. And I needed to get back in to get ready fur my Nipclub barktending duties at the monthly pawty! The theme this month was the North Pole. Now that was really appropriate! As usual it was a real blast.








Hopefully I'll get to see him soon! 

Thanks fur stopping by!

Tuesday's Tails!

Hi Buddies!

      It's the holiday season and it's our wish that all the shelter and rescue pets can find their forever homes!

     This week we'd like to introduce you to a couple of seniors, currently at the Associated Humane Societies in Newark, New Jersey. Wouldn't it be wonderful if they could have a Christmas miracle!

First, meet Reno!


      His Petfinder page says "Reno is a gentle senior Rott/shep mix. He is a docile and laid back old man who is very easy to walk on the lead. He enjoys being petted and scratched all over. He allows you to check him over head to tail and lift his paws off the ground. He is calm and laid back with an easy going personality. He is just looking for a soft couch to live out his time on this earth. He wagged his tail when we brought out the toys but was more interested in the people interacting with him. He takes treats very gently and has no issues with being pet or handled while he eats. Reno is a sweet older dog whose tail is always wagging and looking to be loved. If you are looking for love and companionship Reno is the perfect fella for you."

Now to be fair to the kitties, we'd like to introduce you to Peanut!


      Peanut is a lovely calico, surrendered to the shelter in October. She's 7 years old and loves to be petted and having head "scritches"!





Just look at her soaking the love up!


Reno and Peanut are available for adoption at the Associated Humane Societies in Newark, New Jersey. All pets at the shelter are up to date on their shots and will be altered and micro-chipped once they've been adopted. Visit their website ore give the shelter a call at 973-824-7080.



   The Society offers free DVDs with all cat and dog adoptions at no charge. $300 worth of coupons are offered to each new dog parent and $100 worth of coupons for each new cat parent too!

 
 The Tuesday's Tails Blog hop features shelter pets, all waiting for their forever homes. Please consider featuring a cat, dog or any pet at your local shelter on your blog and join the hop! Sharing these friends will certainly improve their chances of being adopted!
Thanks Dogs 'N Pawz for hosting the hop, in doing so, honoring Princess Phe!

     Like me, Bonnie is a Treeing Walker Coonhound! She's 2 years old and currently in a foster home. Housetrained, spayed and up to date with all her shots, she's ready for her new family! Her foster says that Bonnie is good with other dogs, walks beautifully on a leash, and loves kids!

Hi Buddies!

We've said it before, but mom feels we need to say it again! We're so very thankful for our friends at


and PAWS (Pound Animal Welfare Society)


For all their help and advice in placing the Spice Kitties! 

We're very thankful to everyone that responded to mom's cry for help on Face Book and Twitter, seeking assistance in placing these kitties. Hopefully the person that left them at our gate has taken care of their mother and she's spayed now. 

Of course we're thankful everyday for the internet, giving us the ability to connect with all of our friends, seek advice and find solutions! Otherwise, this hound would be up to her ears in kitties! 
Baroooooo!

Thank you PepiSmart Dog fur hosting the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop

Wordless Wednesday (Almost)!



The Spice Kittens are getting cozy in their new home. Now named Coriander and Sassafras (Cori and Sassy), it looks like they hit the jackpot!
Thanks PAWS and A Purrfect World for all your help. Thank you Petco in Verona, NJ for hosting the adoption days too!
 Mom's considering fostering more in the near future 'though!
What's this coonhound going to do?

Tuesday's Tails!


Hi buddies!
       Thanks for stopping by! For this week's Tuesday's Tails, we're featuring a couple of cuties currently being taken care of by PAWS, Pound Animal Welfare Society, in Montclair, NJ. We're very grateful for all the help that their volunteers and Val from A Purrfect World gave to us to help place the Spice Kitties! Thanks to them, the Spice Kittens have found their forever families! Baroooo!

So please meet Dunkin!


Dunkin is a handsome mostly black lab mix, about 6 to 7 years old and weighs about 45 - 50 pounds. His owner had to give this sweet boy up due to her own health issues. He shared his previous home peacefully with dogs of many sizes. He’s very healthy and needs a foster as soon as possible, better yet, a forever home.

Next, meet Buttercup! Just look at those eyes! 



Beautiful 2-year-old Buttercup was pulled from a high-kill shelter earlier this year, and has been working with expert trainer Sarah of Sleepydog Training regularly. Sarah loves Buttercup and feels she's very responsive to training and is doing very well.


Both of these cuties are up to date on their shots, housebroken and are spayed/neutered.If you would like more information on Dunkin, Buttercup or any of the other wonderful adoptable pets, please contact PAWS via email pawsanimalshelter@verizon.net or stop by their site to fill out an application.

Thankful Thursday!

Hi buddies!

     You may have read about the kittens left outside our gate a few weeks ago. Mom frantically reached out to rescue and shelters in our area, hoping to find them a home or a foster. Unfortunately no one had room for these sweeties!

     But happily, someone from A Purrfect World got in touch with mom and gave her some very good advice. The kittens had their first "wellness" visit at People For Animals and were started on their vaccines. Next, mom took them to the Verona, NJ Petco for an Adoption event. One of the lucky kittens found her new home that day!


    So this week, we're very thankful for A Purrfect World and Pound Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) in Montclair fur doing all that they can to help us find new homes for Spice Kittens!


 If you're in the area, PAWS is having a Holiday Bazaar & Tricky Tray on November 16th!


If you're not in the area but would like to support the great work that PAWS does for pets, they're having a Yankee Candle Fundraiser! Just in time for the holidays!
Just visit Yankee Candle and in the Group Number field enter: 990056168 to start shopping! The PAWS Animal Shelter's name will appear on the next page, so you can be sure that's who will be benefitting!

Thanks for stopping by buddies!

Howl-o-ween Is Almost Here!


Hi buddies!

       Halloween is almost here pals, and our friends at The Uncommon Dog are sharing this cool infographic with our readers! I’m pretty lucky that I don’t get “spooked” too easily, but mom does have to make sure that any candy or treats are where this scent hound can’t get to them! 


        This year, the Barker Lounge's Costume Pawty has a Super Hero/Super Villain Theme. Mom's thinking of dressing me as the "Food Bandit", nothing tasty is safe from the Food Bandit, BOL! We'll let you know how this works out!
Thanks fur stopping by and thanks to the Saturday Pet Blog Hop hosts Life With Dogs, Two Little Cavaliers and Nip & Bones fur hosting!

Tuesday's Tails

Hi buddies!

For today's Tuesday's Tails, we'd like to introduce you to Snickers!



      Snickers is currently at the Associated Humane Society in Newark, NJ. From what the shelter says about her, she sounds like a very sweet soul!

      From her PetFinder page:
      "SINCE SNICKERS WENT HIKING THIS WEEKEND, WE DECIDED TO POST SOME OF HER BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS...THIS DOG IS AMAZING AND NEEDS A HOME!!"

     "SNICKERS IS BEAUTIFUL DOG. ALTHOUGH HER CARD SAYS PIT I REALLY SEE GREAT DANE IN HER. AND SHE HAS A GREAT DANE PERSONALITY.. SHE LOOKS LIKE SHE HAD SOME PUPPIES AND THEN THEY MUST HAVE DUMPED HER, BUT SHE MUST HAVE BEEN A WONDERFUL MOMMIE TO HER PUPPIES, SHE SHARES A KENNEL WITH ANOTHER DOG. SHE WAS GENTLE TAKING TREATS FROM OUR HAND TO EATING HER FOOD."


     We have to agree, Snickers is stunning! She is up to date with her shoots and will be altered and micro-chipped upon adoption. For more information, call the Newark Animal Care Center at 973-824-7080. You can also email the shelter from a link on Snicker's PetFinder page.

Monday's "Mews"

Hi buddies!

       Remember the kittens left outside our gate a few weeks ago? Mom took them fur their first exam and vaccines shortly after. Fortunately they tested negative for FIV and FeLV which made her feel better, but she knew she needed to find homes fur them as soon as possible.
      Mom reached out to our Face Book and Twitter friends for advice about placing them. So many responded with wonderful advice. Valerie from A Purrfect World has been very helpful! She invited us to bring them to an adoption event held at the Petco in Verona, held by the people at PAWS in Montclair, NJ. Since these kittens are mom's responsibility, I opted to stay home, BOL! Not to worry 'tho. She brought home treats fur me and the house kitties.

So off they went to strut their cuteness at the store!

Meeting the neighboring ginger kitties!

And one of the kitties managed to find herself a new family! Mom waved good bye to
one of the Spice kittens. 
Lucky Nutmeg Spice Kitten!

     Mom was so happy knowing that she'll have a wonderful life with her new people! She's bringing Cinnamon & Ginger back again next Saturday, so paws are crossed that they'll work their magic on aspiring pet parents!
Thanks fur stopping by pals!

Almost Wordless Wednesday!

Hi buddies!

     Last Sunday we went to the Church of the Ascension in NYC fur the Blessing of the animals! It's a beautiful church with a lovely garden. Since it was a little misty, the service was held inside. Mom took a few pictures, but none of them came out very well.
*sigh*

 So just for fun, she added some filters to them in PhotoShop. Here's our favorite from the day!

Before... focus mother!

And after, with some crosshatching!

Well, mom needs to work on her camera skills pals, hopefully we'll see improvements soon.
Thanks fur stopping by!

Tuesday's Tails!

Hi buddies!

We would love to introduce you to the cutest couple of pups this week! Both are located at the Pound Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) in Montclair, NJ.
Many years ago mom adopted her Moxie from PAWS!

Here's Harmony!


Harmony was pulled from a local high risk shelter by the good people at PAWS. She's 3 years old, spayed and up to date with her shots and vetting. She gets along with all of the PAWS dogs and is a favorite there!

And please meet Glenda!




OMD! Just look at that sweet face!


Thankfully, PAWS was able to pull Glenda from a high kill facility just in the nick of time! She's about 1 year old and weighs 50 pounds. Glenda is also spayed and fully vetted. She's doing very well in a foster home, playing nicely with three other dogs. 

Please stop by the PAWS website for more information about Harmony and Glenda or to see the other wonderful dogs and cats that are available!

Monday's Musings!

Hi buddies!

     October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month here in the States. This is a cause that is dear to us as Mom lost her mother and many friends to this cancer over the years. We hope and pray that someday, very soon, there will be a cure.
     Well, our pals at Unleashed by Petco  are helping to help raise awareness too, through the sales of this cute Kyjen Breast Cancer Hedgehog Dog toy!

 *I just love small plushies to play with!* 

The best part is that 100% of the proceeds from the KBC Hedgehog sales will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, so it's a win for them and we get a really cool toy too! So give your people the news (and give them a cuddle too)!

Thanks fur stopping by!

BarkWorld Blast Baby!

Well buddies, I can report that mom's trip to this year's BarkWorld Social Media Expo was a blast!


      We've (well, she does bring "flat Prudence" with her, BOL!) attended every previous BarkWorld but this time we went as an Ambassador for Rachael Ray's Nutrish®!
   




   Mom loves Atlanta and loves seeing all her friends, new and old! It's so great to attend to be able to meet so many of our online friends in person (& furson too)!

 Our pal @GeorgeTheDuck made a soft landing on @CarmaPoodale!


       After the keynotes, the sessions and networking came the pawties! The highlight of the weekend was the Nutrish® Block Party!






Besides the wonderful food, the first 50 guest were able to paint a ceramic "nom" bowl fur their pet! What a great idea!


 There were lots of Nutrish® samples for the guests to take home with them and
treats for the doggy guests too!



Everyone had a terrific time designing and painting their dishes. Mom was amazed at the talent in the room! Once finished, they'll be baked and shipped to their owners.





Before we forget,  here's a link fur a Nutrish® coupon pals! 


Thanks fur stopping by buddies!
