My busy day.

We had a good Thanksgiving and the Turkey was good. I also had a busy day before Thanksgiving.  I went to the Dog-tor for a checkup. I sat right on the chair and I don't go crazy there.
She checked me over and all is good. I gots a clean bill of health. Yay!!
On the way home we stopped at the fabric store. I am very good in the store just checking things out. 
Mom called ahead and guess what she found......Cookie fabric!!!
And she couldn't turn this down. I think I will be wearing lots of scarfs.
She also found this turkey for me to wear yesterday. This is new to me but I'm getting used to it.
And...... mom wants me to ask...has everyone made contact with their partner for the Christmas exchange?  PLEASE..,tell us Yes that you have. If you haven't, please do it quickly. Ok?

My mom has been busy working at Michaels. They have a 50% off one item on Saturday. Friday was a 40% off entire purchase and it was pretty busy if you need anything get out to Michaels.

We're thankful

This Thanksgiving as well as others in the past we have much to be Thankful for. God has truly blessed our family with sooo much and we are so Thankful for it all. Blogville has been a wonderful community too.
I love Snoopy so I have asked him to help me out with this post.
Blogville is Special when:
We are just here for each other by listening and in thoughts.
Knowing that Paws are crossed for our pets as well as us adults. I know a few years back when I got really sick in Texas and had those surgeries, even though I felt so sick it was so encouraging to know that so many paws were crossed for me. With loosing Jazzi, it meant the world to me receive so many cards, gifts and to know that Jazzi was so loved in Blogville. It really touched my heart.
We read those post that are just downright cute and or funny that it puts a SMILE on our faces and even makes us laugh. That brightens up any ole day!!
We get to meet some friends in the furs. I haven't met many but would LOVE to. I know when Jazzi met Pip, trust me he was.....ADORABLE!! We had such a great time and they shared a taco!! I know that some of you have met in the furs and have had a great time.
Besides the Blogs, it is fun to write other blog moms and really get to know them via e-mail, phone. Hey some friends text while babysitting!! lol That's what friendship is all about!!
What I think is most Special about Blogville is that we are all so different personalities, have different viewpoints, live in different countries but we can all come together as one heart and really care about one another as well as our pets.
We each have our own story to tell and I think we all do a great job of telling our stories and sharing our hearts with one another!!
So....from Oreo and our family, we wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!!
P.S. Thanks Snoopy, another job Well-done buddy!!!

Changes are hard

Changes are really HARD!! That's what I'm finding out. This separation stuff is for the birds!! My sleeping at night was fine before, I was sleeeping in their room, in the kennel, dark and quiet and not a peep outta me, but Mike thought that I should have my own room well.....not so good last night. When Mom came screaming at me for still barking at 3:00 am. I didn't make a peep after that. She scared the beezeebies outta me!! But she was soooo mad and wound up that after I got quiet she couldn't get to sleep, so needless to say I am back in my old spot which was working perfectly fine. I am back in their room and she doesn't care what Mr. Mike says cuz he wasn't up at 3:00 am!! Plus she likes having me closeby and so do I.

We are focusing on the barking when they leave, barking like a mad man outside, submission, and just basic manners. It all went good this morning. She made me stop my barking like crazy outside which she said is so easy, she didn't know why she didn't figure this out with Miss Bossy pants Jazzi. So I guess  you can teach an old dog new tricks. But it sure wears a guy put!!!

We have a winner

And a winner right on the dot. The winners are Reilly and Denny. There were exactly 68 cookies in the jar. We will get your Oreos in the mail, so you'll have time to get some milk too!!!
Thanks for playing along.

Diana here: Oreo is still barking when I leave.  At his old house he had a family with 2 girls and a doggie brother and they got split up. He has seperation anxiety probably more from his brother and having him to play with even when the family was gone. ( it took Jazzi about 3 mo to get over Addi moving and it took Addi about 3 mo to get over Jazzi's passing)

We had a dog therapist Mike come over today. Oreo is fixable. It's gonna be LOTS of work for us but it shouldn't take too terribly long. Oreo has some things he does good and some not so good. An option is another dog and from my husband's look, that's not an option ha! And doggie daycare once or twice a week for an hour or so, just enough to socialize with other dogs, so I'm going to check into that too.

He also gave us training tips for Oreo. Mike makes it look so easy, I tried it and Oreo knows I'm a pushover .....he's looking like oh Im not doing that for you lady  Lol.
We will be leaving the TV on for noise and he has all new rules. Even just for today, he is already learning. Mike says dogs like it when they have rules and are treated like a dog and it will be so much better with guests come over.

Mike is coming back in 2 weeks so I have to do this right. So, training starts today.  Let's day.....I'll be glad when it's all over. Hopeful for a quieter house soon.

My first job

Gee....I didn't realize that I'd be working at my new house. My first job was to help dog sit this little pup. Her name is Klohe and she is 12 weeks old. She is part poodle/bischon.
She may be cute and all but don't let this 2 1/2 lb floof ball fool ya....She pounces
She nips at the feet and tail
She paws and growls at me....
But as soon as I growl at her, I get talked to about being nice to the girl!!!!!! What's with that???
I mean she was just bugging me so much, look she's just waiting for me to get off the treadmill......and dont think that she didn't try to get oh it.......that was my safe place.
But look who finally got put into timeout!
I learned some things you gotta do for some extra treats.

Thanks for the Welcome wishes to Oreo. We are having a few issues that I could use some help with. We just got Oreo last Sunday and he was with his family for 5 yrs. He is a pretty good dog and he likes to be with me wherever I go. My problem is.......when I leave to go to work or anywhere he barks the whole time Im gone. It is going to be a problem if I cant find a way to get him to stop because my husband works nights and needs to sleep during the daytime. Wed he barked the whole 6 hrs that I was gone.
I have been leaving him with his food, bones and toys but didnt work.
I tried giving him a treat and telling him I would be home pretty soon.
Do any of you have any advice?

What the heck happened to my favorite ball?? That's what I am asking also!!
Now, I am only here periodically depending on Toms work schedule and last time I was here my ball was all in tack, squeaker and all. Looks at it now!! The furs are all off of it and it is split wide open and NO squeaker in sight!! You could had 2 really weird eyeballs and have a real monster ball!! bol
Ummmmmmm...Oh remember that other Jazzy girl?? I heard that she gots a hold of my ball. Her mom told my mom that she doesn't play much with toys, or balls or chews on bones. Well....I can say that it just isn't true!! I protested this action and gave her a really sad face and.........
LOOK what it got me. I GIANT dog-zilla bone!! uh Yah...I wants it lady!!! You just hold it and I will take it all nice and easy like.
Ok....c-ya guys later...Ive got some serious bone chewin,,,,to do!!!

Couple things and Congrats

First off....I'm thrilled about this. Addi came over last night for a few days. She ran up to me and has not looked for Jazzi. She drug out the toys just like the old Addi used to, so I think she's adjusted. Im happy.

Secondly, Sunday night is the deadline for the gift and card exchanges. For info see my sidebar. I will put up a final list for review on Sat. Please check to make sure that you are on the list. I did receive a comment from Bailey and I didn't receive your information so could you resend it?

Thirdly, congrats to Stanley and Murphy. They are our new mayors. They and Dory both ran great campaigns and either one would be wonderful mayors. Blogville is a fun place and is in good paws.
Have a Terrific Thursday.

Our Company

Last week we had some special company from Texas. Don and I love spending time with the grand kids. We spent Halloween trunk-n- tricking with some of the grand kids.
The little one Bailey was grapes cuz she eats like 87 grapes lol. You'd see these grapes running, the grapes would fall and get right back up again, the balloons would break her falls ha! It was cute.
We had fun at the Apple Orchard....
And.....I always like to find a way for a "unique" picture of the grand kids.
 It was a fun visit And as much as we hate to say goodbye they made it safely back to San Antonio.
