Costume giveaway

We  are having a Howl-O-ween costume giveaway. The costumes are from Entirely pets.  Addi was pleased forced  to model the costumes!!! Now you must all know that Addi is not a clothes kinda girl like Jazzi was. HA!
First one: A really cute purple dinosaur. This really made her very happy. Not!! Imagine Addi turning circles and me turning circles right behind her saying Addi wait, we just hafta put your leg in this leg hole, Addi!!. TADA!!! Finally after 87 minutes!! I don't know who was more tired me or Addi!! She refused to stand up ha! but she was sooo cute in it.
Next came the wonderful spider, again just add that  she can hardly contained her excitement horror bout it. Actually she thought it would make a great play toy.
Lastly the butterfly. I do think she would have flown way if she could have.
Addi: Hey! Can you open that window so I can end this ordeal ??????
This is what she thought of the butterfly.
These costumes are made out of great really soft material and they went on really easy, well considering its Dog-zilla who wants to remain in the furs. I was thrilled with the quality of the costume.
So we are going to give away the dinosaur and the butterfly costumes.  (Addi is going to be the Spider for Howl-ween)
WAIT!! There's more.
To one lucky winner they will be able to go to Entirely Pets and choose their own costume for Free and the company will send it right to your house in time for Howl-O-ween.
To enter just leave a comment and I the beautiful Addi will draw the names on Friday and post the winners on Friday.
Addi: PLEASE help me get these costumes out of this house!!!
NOTE: Dinosaur is a large size and the butterfly could fit a medium to large size dog!!

Lots and lots of stuff

This past week or so I have gotten in the cleaning mode. When I get there, I have to go with it cuz who knows how long it will stay ya know?? I had way too much stuff in closets and in our attic that I knew I had to get rid of. Now I am not a hoarder or anything, but I just have alot stuff from the kids and of course the very important things that I may need someday!! Any of you have that kind of stuff?? I hated to throw stuff away so I decided to donate and help save the environment. I had the trunk packed full and the back seat too and off I went to the donation place. It actually feels good to see improvement in the attic and seeing how clean it is getting.
When I was cleaning I found this picture frame. Uncle Ed gave it to Jazzi last Christmas. It was very special last year but it is even more special now. She sure loved her Uncle Ed and they were great partners!! 
One more round of cleaning and another car load and I will be done. Now I have to make sure to buy only what I need!! yah right!! lol I have so much craft stuff that my husband tells people that when Michael's runs out that they call me Ha! Its not really that bad but that's his story!!

The first day of Fall

Today was the first day of fall. It was a beautiful day with that perfect fall smell in the air. The trees are just now starting to turn colors and I spotted this pretty tree on my way home from work. Fall is my favorite season.
Even though it wasn't a hot summer I'm looking forward to sweatshirts, big pots of chili, playing in the leaves with the grand-kids and going to the Apple orchard.

I hope you all are getting your moms into planning what kind of taco that you are going to have for Jazzi's Taco day. It will be coming up real soon.

So lonely

Its me Addi and I'm still lonely
So....lonely. I really miss Miss Bossy pants nipping at my feets and playing chase and heading her off at the pass and her yapping like a crazy woman!!
Jazzi's mom decided that I needed a walk so off we went. It was a really nice fall day and I did enjoy it.
The clouds were beautiful that day. I hafta think that Jazzi is watching me. I'm trying to take good care of the peeps Jazz.
Diana here: Poor Addi is still looking for Jazzi. This is her second time here since Jazzi's been gone. She doesnt play outside or with any toys and that is so unlike her. I may have to throw away the toys and get all new ones. Maybe she still smells Jazzi on them I dont know!! I did get a few more cards from Daisy, Slimmer pugs and Mitch and Molly. Thanks so much it means so much to me.
Mitch and Molly also sent me this adorable Scottie hanging with Jazzi on it. I Love it! Its hanging in my computer room. Thanks so much. The generosity in Blogville is just amazing!! Thanks to all of your cards, and kind words.
I have had to work alot this week and all weekend but I will get around to your blogs, so don't think I am just not getting there.

Past Dogs!!

I love Dogs and I grew up with a dachshund that looked exactly just like Nola. I dont have a picture so just picture Nola ok? Ha! Her name was Gypsy. I dressed her in all my doll clothes and put her in my doll strollers, she rode perfectly and she was wonderful for me but for my mom not so much. Gypsy and my mom didn't get along and when my mom would leave, she would chew stuff around the house, furniture, cushions etc. But she kept her cuz I loved her and Gypsy was my childhood dog.

I have been going throw old boxes and cleaning and found these dog pictures.They were our old dogs. First one is Cecil. Don't let his cuteness fool you. He was the Beagle from Hell, LOL He howled like crazy, if he didn't like someone he would lift his leg on their foot and he used to love to sneak out and run around the neighborhood.Now.....the only way to get him back home was to put a bowl of food on the porch and when he was eating it, then we could nab him!! Seriously!! That darn dog could be so sneaky that he would sneak up, eat the food and run around again before we even noticed!!!! LOL so yes, we had to put more food out to catch him again!!! He was always into trouble!!
Next came Sprint. He was given to us by Kims friend. When he was little and getting ready to run, he would look like a sprinter does, so hence the name Sprint. He was a great dog and never left the yard. He would go with me on our paper routes unleashed and be fine, He would even sit and wait at the corners for me, lol such a good dog. He was the dog my kids grew up with. He was in all the kids pictures like prom, homecoming etc. He loved being the only dog and was so jealous of even Toms pet hamsters, he would watch them and cry. They say that Chocolate kills dogs. Well....when he was about 10 yrs old Valerie had a solid chocolate Santa wrapped up for a Christmas gift. While we were gone, he found it, unwrapped it, chewed the box open and ate the ENTIRE chocolate bunny!! He didnt even get sick but he was pretty thirsty that night!! Sprint lived to age 18 and we had to put him to sleep. He went blind, deaf, lost his sniffer and had heart problems.
3 months after Sprint passed, I FINALLY got my Scottie. I have always loved and wanted a Scottie. I had to wait until Sprint was gone cuz it wouldn't be fair to him to get another dog. I think he would  have been heart broken. Jazzi was full of energy and so good with all the kids and grand kids. She tolerated me with all the costumes, hats, glasses, bikes, leaf throwing etc. cuz she knew there were treats coming. She did LOVE her tacos and I have no idea how she got that but she did. That was her specialty meal!! She like to bark to hear herself sometimes I think, lol and she kept a great eye out on her property for the squirrels and rabbits. She livened up our house and her and Addi running together was quite a sight. When Jazzi would sneak out at least she knew to ride around with a bunch of nice teenage girls and gets treats along the way. Guess she was no dummy!!
Couldn't have asked for a more perfect dog and we still miss her so much. I still move my foot under my desk to find that she isn't there and by habit before I go to bed, I think oh I have to let the dog out. I'm sure its normal for all of us who have lost dogs!! Its just had to believe sometimes.

I am anxious to find out:
Who our next dog will be?
What will its personality be like? It has to get along with grand kids and Miss Dog-zilla.
Will he or she let me dress them up?
When we will meet?
We just haven't made the right connection yet. I know that when I do, I will know that this is our next dog. We will be ready to love and spoil another dog. Whoever this dog is...has some pretty big paws to fill!!

We are all so sorry to hear about Sweet Greta.I know we were all hoping for a recovery. I know that Jazzi was there to meet her with one paw and a taco in the other. Run free Sweet Greta.
I was surprised to get a package in the mail. It was this adorable Taco magnet from Lily and Edward. It came from an Etsy shop Guilt Free Decadence They have some adorable items and she does a great job with the Palmer clay. Thanks so much Lily and Edward. I love it and it is on the fridge!!
I also received 3 more cards from Ruby, Samuel and Wallace and Frankie and Ernie. Thanks so much and the cards mean so much at this time.

That awkward moment

That awkward moment when you eat something that you shouldn't have and she says Addi, what are you eating?

Nothing, really!!!!
Question is...Do you walk away or sit and try to look not quilty?

Today is the day to honor our sweet friend Benny. He is having a Hugs and Kisses day. Benny is probably running around with my Jazzi. Even though Jazzi isn't here, I wanted to honor Benny.
Jazzi loved giving Hugs and Kisses too. Here is our last hug picture.
Be sure to give your dog/cat extra hugs today and pop over and help honor Benny
Benny was such a special friend to all of us, a fashionable guy, and we all loved him and miss him so much. Im sure him and Jazzi are looking down and smiling!!!!

In the Mean time

I have been thinking about what to do with Jazzi's blog. I don't want to stop the blog because when we find another dog -- that dog will carry on the blog. I would like to still keep up with everyone here in Blogville. I hope that you all don't mind me still blogging and reading your blogs during this transition time.

In the Mean time, I am still going to host Jazzi's National Taco Day on October 4th.
Elyse and I are doing the Christmas Card exchange.
Beth (Dorys mom) is helping me with the Christmas Gift exchange

In the Mean time, there will still be things going on here and Addi will still be around to post here and there.
I could share how things are going with finding the new dog.
I am also in the process of making some new pages:
1. For Angel Jazzi, a page with remembrances of her and to celebrate her life.
2. For Jazzi and Sweet William. Jazzi loved going on dates with him, so a page to their specialness to each other seems fitting to me.

So.....I think I will name it
"In the Mean time."
Seems appropriate to me. I hope that people will still read the blog and not forget about us.
Again, I say Thank-you to all of Blogville for being there for us. It has helped and has been such an encouragement. Blogville is just WONDERFUL and I am proud to have so many of you as  my friends. I received 2 more cards. A really cute Scottie card from Reilly and Denny. A special card from Ashley and Trevor, Jazzi's dog sitters that really took great care of her while we were out of town. Thanks so much for the cards. I love them both.
Jazzi has also been made an honorary member of the Mad Scots. We are very honored. Thanks so much.
