A Treasure!

One of our new blogging friends, 47 from has recently discovered her talent and love of drawing. She had asked if anyone would like to have their pet sketched. So Mom commented on her blog and we were so happy she chose me as one of her subjects!
Well, when we saw the finished sketch, we were amazed! Mom was taught (many years ago) that an important part of drawing was to be able to see what is really there, not what your mind perceives to be there. 47 captured me in my "glory" as mom likes to say. From the diamond on my nose to the bones on my collar!

But what was even nicer were the wonderful words 47 used in describing her process in creating my portrait. We were so touched by her thoughtfulness!
She'll be sketching a few more pets, so if you have a minute, please check out to see what she and her dogs Rocco and Leia have been up to!
Thanks fur stopping by buddies, baroooo!

What To Do!

Hi buddies!
Christmas is just a few weeks away. Decorations are going up & I have to watch my tail, (literally!) so I don't accidentally "sweep" anything off the table or tree! Well, our tree isn't up yet, but I've been practicing being careful.
I think it's much safer to stick to my sofa. I rearrange the cushions just right and it's a win, win. At least until mom gets home!
Now, I'd like to ask fur some advice. Lately a momma kitty and her kittens have been visiting our porch. I'm pretty cool with my indoor kitties, but sometimes I don't appreciate the outdoor kitties so much. I try not to be too barky, but I'm afraid mom's going to think we have room fur more! Baroooo! No way! She puts out food fur them but now that it's getting colder, she's beginning to worry about them and has been hoping to get them into a real home.

She'd like to try to take them to a shelter, but is afraid they might be worse off there. So if anyone has any advice, we'd really appreciate it buddies. Thanks fur everything!

Hi buddies!
Mom gets a little nostalgic every now and then fur my puppy days. Even I have to admit, I was one rambunctious pup!
So we thought we could share a couple "now and then" pictures with you!
This is me on my "Gotcha" Day, seeing my home fur the first time!

I approved, barooo!

Checking out my yard, lots of new smells!

Just look at me now! Mom says I'm still cute as ever, no matter how big I've grown. (And I still have my little pink "scottie dog" spot on my nose too!)
We're a little late on this weekend's blog hop, but glad we made it!
Thanks fur stopping by buddies!

Winter's On The Way!

Winter's coming buddies, before you know it, we'll be dipping our paws (and noses) into the snow. After last year's long, snowy winter, mom shudders just thinking about it, but we have to be prepared!
Morton Salt’s Safe-T-Pet® ice melt is sponsoring a public service campaign, kicking off on Dec. 22, 2011, with “National Keep Pets Safe in Winter Day" and running through January 2012. The purpose of this is to make our two legged friends aware of the dangers that winter can bring to their pets and other outdoor creatures. We've included some of their tips and added a few of our own. It's always better to be safe than sorry!
Because of my short coat, if I'm out for a long walk, mom makes sure I'm wearing a coat or sweater. Since I'm a scent hound, I'm never off leash (unless at a secure dog park or my doggy daycare). We're more apt to get lost if our once familiar haunts become covered in snow. And just in case, always make sure we have our id tags on!
We use pet-friendly ice melters such as Morton® Safe-T-Pet® on our steps and sidewalks, but our paws are always wiped with a damp cloth after a stroll around the neighborhood. You never can tell what a coonhound might have walked through buddies!
Please don't forget, anti-freeze is deadly for dogs and kitties! Because we're drawn to the sweet taste, mom's extra vigilant when we see any spills in the street or driveways. A little bit is all it can take to make us very sick or worse! If your people have it in the garage, remind them to be sure to keep it tightly sealed and out of our reach.
We have a few outdoor kitties in our neighborhood, along with squirrels and other animals. Be sure to make some noise on your car hood before starting the engine, just in case somebody snuck in to keep out of the cold.
You can find more safety tips on Morton’s Facebook page and on their website

Now the good news! Morton is making a donation of $20,000 to the ASPCA to help keep pets safe in homes and in shelters! You can help increase this donation for the ASPCA by simply visiting the Morton Salt Facebook page ( and “liking” the page. Morton will donate an additional $1 to the ASPCA for every unique “like” received between October 1, 2011 and January 31, 2012! Up to $75,000 in total donations!!! Now we're just newbies at this blogging, but it would be terrific if when you visit their Facebook page, please let them know that Prudence pup sent you!
Thanks fur stopping by buddies, stay safe and warm!

Rootin' Tootin' Tuesday!

Hi pals, sorry we've been falling behind in our updates. Mom says life has been a little busy here, but that's no excuse, darn it!

We hope that everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving here in the U.S. (and all over the world too!). I know sometimes I take all that I have fur granted, we're really very fortunate.
We had a wonderful holiday, the best part has been mom filling my kong with bits of turkey and sweet potato, along with my kibble of course!
I love this time of year, not too hot, not too cold. It makes mom sad to see summer go, but it always comes back, so we just need to "go with the flow"!
Because our theme today is "Rootin', Tootin' Tuesday", here's a few pictures of me rootin' (I won't admit to any "tootin'") at one of our favorite dog parks, Rocky Top!

Thanks again fur stopping by buddies, barrooooo!

Blessings For The Animals!

Last Sunday the Church of the Ascension in New York City was holding a Blessing of the Animals. Mom thinks I need all the blessings I can get, so into the city we went!
It was a baroootiful day, nice and warm with lots of sunshine. And once we got to the Church, there were so many animals, patiently waiting to be blessed. Birds, kitties and doggies of course!

My pal Denise works and sings in the choir at this historic church in the West Village. She talks about me all the time to her friends so they were so happy to finally be able to meet me. I felt like a celebrity!

Here are some of my other pals that were there!

John and Bolla!
Kim and Vincent Van Dogh!

And one of the biggest kitties we ever did see! Almost as big as Boris!
Barroooo buddies, thanks fur stopping by!

Walk Fur A Cure!

In honor of tomorrow's Walk For A Cure, my pals at the Barker Lounge took pictures of all of us doggies wearing pink shirts. I felt a little silly, but realized that this is very important. It helps to raise awareness and also raises money toward research, so that someday, we'll be cancer free. Mom lost her own mother to breast cancer, so we take this great cause to heart.
Don't worry, I wasn't as sad as I look! I got lots of treats afterwards! If you'd like to see the other pictures from today, please feel free to check out the Barker Lounge page on FaceBook!
Thanks fur stopping by buddies! Barooo!

Halloween Preparations

As many of you know, I spend a few days a week at the Barker Lounge. I love it there, and they love me back! I get to be a dog, running, playing and getting into trouble sometimes too. All the things a hound's supposed to do!
Every year the Lounge has a Halloween Pawty.... and every year mom thinks its a great idea to dress me up. I put up with it, as there's always a few treats in it fur me, but I don't like to stay "dressed up" too long. The deal is, I'll wear the outfit, peoples can take some pictures, then I'm back to being myself!
Mom hasn't settled on this year's costume yet *sigh*, so we thought we'd share a few pictures from other Pawties.

I'm a Woof In Sheep's Clothing!

Pawty table, I"m overlooking the goodies!

Underdog, baroooo!

If anyone has any suggestions fur this year's Pawty, we'd love to hear them, thanks!

Dogster Dog Of The Day!

Mom has to catch up with reporting on all the fun and great things that she learned while at BarkWorld Expo, but her work keeps getting in the way *kicking work stuff*!
But today we found out that I was selected to be Dogster's "Dog of the Day", baroooooo! Check it out at .
We'd love it if you'd stop by and become pals with me on Dogster. Its a terrific community of dog lovers, doggies of all kinds hang out there. There's also for the kitties! We're going to set up an account for our kitties, maybe they should each have their own page, hmmm?
Wow, I'm the luckiest coonhound if ever there was! Thanks for stopping by buddies, Barooooo!

BarkWorld Expo, Day 2

Mom's away at a Social Media Conference this weekend, The BarkWorld Expo. I made her promise to post from the "field", since I'm staying with my crew at the Barker Lounge!
She's having a blast in Atlanta, learning so much plus seeing old friends and meeting so many of our Twitter pals' parents and staff. (Now if she can only figure out how to upload photos from iPad to blog, I'd be a happy hound!)
She promises to post more later today buddies, so see you later, barrroooooo!

Saturday we got in the car to go to the 11th Hour Rescue's Puptoberfest! This year it was held at the Craigmeur Recreation Complex in Rockaway, NJ. What a terrific place! We had to drive along windy roads to get there, through hill and dale as mom likes to say. She let me stick my snout out to catch sniffs of all the woods and grasses as we drove on.

Once we got there, I had to sniff and check out everything! There were so many peoples and their doggies there! Lots of food for pups (and people too!) and plenty of things to look at.

There were also lots of dogs there, waiting for their forever homes. The volunteers walked them around to meet and greet all the visitors, showing how well behaved they are. We hope most found a good family to become a part of before the day was over!

Thanks for stopping by, barooooo!

Thankful Thursday!

Every now and then I need to stop and think of all that I should be thankful for. There are so many doggies and kitties without a home to shelter them and a family to love them. I am so blessed to have everything that I need and even more! I'm even thankful for our kitty Toby (he's 19 years old & wakes mom up at 4:30 ish every morning. He thinks its time for breakfast!).
I'm thankful that I'm able to spend some time at my doggy daycare. They must be thankful for me 'cause they have my portrait in one of the playrooms!

And I'm thankful to all my Twitter and FaceBook pals! Thanks for being our friends, baroooo!
