(Almost) Wordless Wednesday

Mom's leaving for BarkWorld Expo tomorrow, so I'll be hanging with my crew at the Lounge. She's gonna miss this face, barooooo!

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!

Adopt A Less Adoptable Pet Week! has designated this week (September 17- 25) as "Adopt-A-Less_Adoptable-Pet" Week. My mom has a soft spot in her heart for, that's where she found me! My litter mates and I were dumped at a Georgia kill-shelter, all of us suffering from Parvo. Parvo is very expensive to treat, so things didn't look very good for us. Thankfully, 11th Hour Rescue, from Hopatcong, NJ rescued us. They brought us here to New Jersey and had all of us treated and cared for, thanks to their wonderful volunteers and contributers. We now share our home with three senior kitties *whispering, now they're 19 years young!*, all adopted as "mature" adults (9+ years) and with two (mostly black) kittens found on our street during the Christmas holidays. We love them all (just don't tell my doggy pals at the lounge, 'kay?). It breaks our hearts to see so many pets needing to enjoy the comfort and love of their forever families. I'd like to introduce you to a couple of special pets featured at 11th Hour, the first is Mason, a Shepherd/Hound mix. Here is his story:
"My name is Mason. I am a 5-6 month old shepherd\hound\mastiff mix. I will be around 40-45 lbs. when I am full grown. I used to live way down south, but some really nice people brought me all the way to NJ, so I can have a better chance at finding a home. "I am what everyone calls a “special needs” dog. I was born with a non-contagious virus that caused nerve damage to my back legs. So, I am unable to walk. I may be a candidate for wheelchair when I am all grown up, but for now I have to be carried. I really don’t mind that one bit, because I love to be cuddled. I am very sweet and such a happy dog and even though I am different from other dogs I don’t let that bother me. I am unique and have lots of love to give a new family. Please consider adopting me." (His page is at: )
And another wonderful hound, Pacer. He is eleven to twelve years old and has lived in horrible conditions. He's never known the love and kindness of a real home. He deserves to spend the rest of his years being loved and cared for. You can visit his page here: More information about Pacer, Mason and so many other wonderful doggies & kitties can be found at or at Please consider opening your heart and home to a deserving creature. But if you're like us and you have a full house already, there's lots of other ways to help your local shelters. Bring them dog and cat food, kitty litter, old towels, blankets, toys. If you have time, volunteer to come and walk the doggies or play with the kitties. Every little bit helps! Thanks so much for stopping by, barooo 'til later buddies!

Arghh! Talk Like A Pirate!

We love Talk Like a Pirate Day, Baroooaarrrgh! & dig my Pirate name, Calico Grace! Can't get much gnarlier than that mateys!

Gather pirates in th' scurvy pirate Blog hop buckos!

My pirate name is:
Calico Grace Flint

Often indecisive, you can't even choose a favorite color. You're apt to follow wherever the wind blows you, just like Calico Jack Rackham, your namesake. Like the rock flint, you're hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you're easily chipped, and sparky. Arr!

Anipal Times Labor Day Celebration!

One of the things that we're very proud of is working as an editor for the Anipal Times! Mom was thrilled to meet @CokietheCat 's human at BlogPaws last week, it was like she's known her fur years! It helped that she had Cokie's doppleganger w/her too!
Because it's Labor Day in the U.S., we'd also like to salute all the working doggies, kitties & anipals everywhere, helping to make the world a better place!
Thanks for visiting, Barooooo!

Thankful Thursday!

Sometimes I have to stop and remember that I have so much to be thankful for. I was left in a Georgia shelter with my littermates, all suffering from Parvo. Luckily, 11th Hour Rescue brought us to New Jersey, treated us and found us our forever homes.
Yes, I have a comfy home, lots of noms and plenty of love. For this I am very thankful. I wish all the kitties and doggies everywhere could be as lucky as me.
Mom was away last weekend at something called "BlogPaws". She had a blast, learning so much and meeting up w/ all her Twitter pals too. And they weathered through Hurricane Irene! OMD!
The opening speakers were the fellas from Rescue Ink. Wow! They're a tough crew, but their mission is to rescue animals in danger and to "re-educate" abusers. These guys are terrific! I know if I ever got to meet them, they'd get lots of kisses from me! To learn more about them and their mission, please visit:
I'll be allowing mom to post more about BlogPaws over the next few days. She can't stop talking about it, so maybe this will get it out of her system, ggg.
