(Almost) Wordless Wednesday!

The ASPCA working to teach people not to buy anything from a store that sells puppies. Most of the puppies being sold at these stores are from "Puppy Mills", and we all know how terrible they are.  
Thank you to Fidose Of Reality for sharing this video. Please spread the word buddies! Money talks, friends!

A Very Thankful Thursday

          It's Thankful Thursday buddies, and we have so much to be thankful for! A couple of weeks ago, Hurricane Sandy stopped by to visit the Northeast.
        Well, we hope we never see the likes of her again! What heartache and misery she left us! Thankfully we just lost some fencing and were without power for 9 days, but we made the most of it. Some people lost everything! Their homes were destroyed, lives were lost. Our hearts and pawprayers are with them.

       Thankfully, times are changing and many of the shelters welcomed pets too, but there were many left behind. We are so thankful for the rescuers that are continuing to work to put families and their pets back together. This reminds mom that we need to be prepared, just in case we need to head to shelter too! 
Thanks fur stopping by buddies, stay safe!

Sorry We've Been Missing In Action!

    Sorry that we've been missing buddies! Mom had a blast at BarkWorld and is going to be posting about her adventures soon. It really was so much fun, with lots of information, pawties and meeting friends, both old and new.
(Flat Prudence and Panky shared the room with the fabulous @Niqqi!)

       She made it home just before the airport closed here in New Jersey and luckily in time to pick me up from the Barker Lounge. Some awful guest named "Sandy" blew in and really messed up the northeast. We're very blessed and grateful that everyone here is safe. No structural damage besides half our fence blowing over. Still no power at home, but we've been told that it would be back by Friday (oh boy!). Her office is located in the Financial District of NYC, so she hasn't been able to get to work 'til yesterday. *Shaking head*, no heat there either...
       But after seeing and hearing about the devastation around the tri-state area, we're determined not to complain about the power. We're very happy that we have a roof over our heads and everyone is safe (if just a bit chilly, BOL!).
      More to follow pals, we have a lot to catch up with! Thanks fur stopping by!

#btc4a Buddies!

This couldn't be any easier buddies!
      For every post and every tweet, Petco will donate $1 to support rescue pets, those still waiting for their forever homes.

Just Tweet this now through Saturday, October 27 at 11:00 AM (EST):

Rescue pets receive $1 from @Petco at @BarkWorldExpo for each #BTC4A tweet from Oct 22-27! Learn more:

     If you're a blogger, write a post about the campaign and join the Blog Hop. Be sure to use the hashtag $btc4a in your blog title. And if you don't have a blog, just tweet! As mom likes to say, easy peasey pals!
    Rescue organizations need all the financial help they can get to continue to do the great work for animals. Medical expenses, food, shelter, transportation all cost and these costs keep going up.
    BarkWorld attendees will be able to nominate their favorite no-kill 501(c)3 rescue or shelter at the Petco booth through Friday, October 26. The winners will be announced during BarkWorld’s Petco session on Saturday, October 27! Mom's already decided to nominate Eleventh Hour Rescue, they're the wonderful people that rescued me!

      Mom's thrilled to be able to go to BarkWorld, but you don't need to attend to take part. Just tweet or post (or both) and help raise $5,000 for the selected shelter or rescue!
    Thanks for stopping by buddies! And a big thank you to BarkWorld and their Social Good Partners!

So Blessed!

This weekend, many churches celebrate the Feast of St. Francis with a Blessing of the Animals. Mom's friend is in the choir of the Church of the Ascension, in New York City and this is the second year that the church is celebrating! Even 'though it was raining, we were off in the car to the Big Apple!

Last year, it was a beautiful day, and the service was held in front of the Church. Due to the rain, we were all invited in. I was a little nervous, the floors are tiled in marble and that's pretty slippery to this pup!
(sorry for the blur, I was keeping mom busy keeping me calm!)
   Seminarian Alex Martin wrote the Liturgy for today's service (he stepped over to say hello to me, it was very hard not to jump up, he was so nice!). The choir sang for us and Mother Shelley McDade welcomed all the pets and their people to the Church. She reminded everyone that God created people to care for the animals then thanked all the people there for doing just that. Then she and Father James Reho blessed each of us, saying a special prayer for any specific needs or concerns.

      Wow, what a day it was fur me! As much as I love to get out and visit, I couldn't wait to get back into the car fur the ride home!

Thanks fur stopping by buddies! And thank you to the hosts of the Saturday Pet Blog Hop Life With Dogs, Two Little Cavaliers, and Baby Patches at Nip & Bones !

     Mom just read that Cokie the Cat has turned over the duties of hosting the Thankful Thursday hop to our pal Pepi Smart Dog due to Cokie's busy Hollywood schedule. So this week, we are very grateful to Cokie for hosting the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop for so long!
And a big thank you to Pepi for continuing the tradition!

Rootin' Tootin' Tuesday!

   Mom's getting pretty psyched about her upcoming trip to BarkWorld! She's been making her lists (she's a bit of a kook about lists):
  • Registration, check!
  • Flight arranged, check!
  • Hotel plans, check!
    She's downloaded the BW Mobile App fur both her ipad and iphone so she'll be able to keep up with the sessions and speakers! 
   One of the sessions on her list that she's looking forward to is the Pet Food Network All Stars Kim Clune and Amy Burkert. They will be doing cooking demos, making healthy treats fur dogs and kitties, inspired by the Honest Kitchen. Mom makes a lot of my treats, so she's pretty psyched about this! Other sessions include Digital Scrapbooking, Pet CPR & Emergency Preparedness. There's so much to learn , and we won't even mention the Swag!

   And for all of her technical questions, the BarkWorld Genious Squad will be there! Yes, she has a list of questions too! *shaking head*

But one of the things that she's most excited about is......
She's thrilled that the kitties will be represented, barooo! 

  The very best part of BarkWorld is meeting so many of our on-line buddies, both old and new.

Here I am, hanging with the Shibbering Cheetos and the Hookalopes after the sessions at my first BarkWorld Expo in 2010! Their fans get a little crazy, but who can blame them, BOL!

Thanks fur stopping by buddies!
