I saw Santy Paws

Mom has been soooo busy at Michael's. She said she was sorry and that in all her 11 yrs that she has never been this busy.....its totally CRAZY there. As soon as the holidays are over she will get back to normal so I am glad about that. We miss all of you and will catch up as soon as we can. She did take me to see Santy Paws. I was so excited and loved every minute of it and.....I got a new rawhide bone from him too. I am anxiously waiting for Christmas. I got a package from my girl Hazel but am saving it for Christmas. I hope that she got mine too. Mine and Addi's gifts went out to our partners too last week.
If any of your moms are looking for a cool gift......Michael's just got these really cute dog toy boxes in last week. And.....there's a 50 % off coupon this week.....I'm just sayin.....

I don't know WHY my stuffs have to get disrupted for the Christmas decorating but somehow it does.
Once the decorations are all up.....Me and Addi chill while She does what she always does......Going to WORK!!! *sigh*
With all the would think that a couple more hours would prevent this:
REALLY?? Lets NOT and say that we DID!!!
Oh....Mom.......we heard that they need you back at Micheal's like ASAP!!! bol
(We hope that all of you have made contact with your gift partners and have been doing your shopping....we will be shopping next week)

Hey guys....Guess what is happening?

Its my New Home-aversary!! That's right...its been a ONE year now since I came to live with my new family. Can you believe it?
It just seems like yesterday that we were shopping for my new bed and new toys.
Me and Addi get along beautifully if you don't count the growling, gnashing of teefs fight that we had on Thanksgiving day when she thought that shed take my bone from me.....Not so fast there Miss Dog-zilla. I can say that I retained the bone!!!
I get to entertain little Bailey every Wednesday. We do have fun together.
And last but not least...I met my little Sweetie Hazel. We do make a cute couple huh??
Its been a fun year for me and I love my family and am just spoiled rotten!! hehehe
Diana here: After Jazzi passed...I was going to wait and get a Scottie from Lynn at Rocky Creek Scotties. A reader emailed me about Oreo. I talked to the owner and I just knew in my heart that he was our next dog.

Ive never had a rescue dog before and its been a real challenge with Oreo. He had bad separation anxiety and it took lots of patience with him. We had the dog therapist come in to help and we had to train him to be in a kennel and he had never been in one before. When we would leave..he would bark and bark. When we came home...he would bark and bark. I did think sometimes that I made a huge mistake but I knew in my heart that it would work out. The trainer said that it would take time to work itself out but he didn't know how long it would take.

Well....It has been 1 yr and he just started that when we leave Oreo in his kennel he doesn't bark and when we come home he doesn't bark!! YAY!!! Now we can move to step 2. We can put an enclosure around his kennel so that he can get used to a little more space. He cant stay in the house because too much space by himself get his anxiety all worked up. It is so nice to come home to him now.

He always slept in our room and sometimes he will go on his own and go to one of the beds in the other room and sleep which is a big deal!! He is like my shadow and today I left the room and he didnt follow me which is really huge!! So he is making slow and steady progress.
He loves the kids and stays in the yard and loves to go places and we all love Oreo. He's a keeper.

Back Away

I've been lonely lately. You see at Michael''s been very very busy. My mom's been working double shifts last week and working over the weekend and another double yesterday. What's a guy to do?
FINALLY.....she has 3 days off..yippee.

So with Thanksgiving coming up and about 87 people coming.....guess what she does. Isn't this appalling? Yah....
 Aww..NO...not on my watch.

 Addi realized that some of those were hers too.
 Back away from the toy....and...No one gets hurt.

The not so fun leaf fun

Oh...I was having fun in the leaves until the grand peep Bailey tried to grab me.
I said: I am outta here.....
And....she said: Not so fast. Before I knew it...I was back in the pile being strangled to death!!
I heard talk about leaf throwing and that they wouldn't do that to me cuz I am more laid back and not the crazy girl that Jazzi was. But when they saw me with the leaf bubbles...they said they knew that I would be ok with it. I do these things?? WHY??
So here I go:
And here I went: made them Happy....and now the leaves are out there for the Leaf Sucker dude!!

A Christmas NOT Wordless Wednesday

She's back.....She's back.
I am so happy and I was jumping and yapping when I saw her at the door. As much as I had fun at Addi's house....there is NO place like home.

I got a new Frisbee which I have practically demolished and  new ball. So I was happy about that. She had a great time in Texas and seeing the grand kids again. She said they kept really busy even though it rained a couple of days.

We have gotten lots of addresses already for the Christmas list and the gift exchange. Tomorrow she plans on getting the list together to post to make sure that everyone is on it. Christmas will be here before we know it!!
 We will be back reading blogs tomorrow. Mom and me have missed everyone!!
If you want to be on the list or the gift exchange....check my sidebar for info.

My neighbor Friends

These guys are my neighbors that live behind me and across the alley. Sam has the blue collar and mom can never remember the other dogs name even though they have lived there for a zillion years. Moms!!! I have just been acquainted with them since this past Spring. They are Pitbulls, 2 boys and 3 girls. Mom wasn't sure how I'd do with them but I hold my own. Their mom says that Pitbulls can be nice that it is just how they are raised. We all like to sniffs together.
And I do like to walk with them.
For some reason.....I'm feeling a little behind here!!
Step it up Mom...after all you do want those Fitbit steps!!!
You may be wondering Where are the 3 girls at? Well....they are a little high strung (you know how girls can be sometimes) and want to play too much with me and well....I snap at them!! Their mom keeps them away from me!! BOL Isnt that funny?
