Few Words Friday

FRESH SNOW!!
Snow makes me smile!
I am completely content!
Hi furkids, Eva here. Yes, Yes, Yes! Fresh snow finally. We didn't get a lot, but Tasha and I will take what we can get. Even dad says its a good thing cuz he says we need the moisture, what ever that means. Here is a little video of us playing ball. Please excuse dad's camera work. He says its hard holding the camera where it should be and throwing the ball left-handed. Have a great weekend everypup, kitty, GG, and human! Belly Rubs, Eva.

Field Trip!!!

We had an exciting afternoon. There were highlights and lowlights (No, Momma didn't change her hair color again).

Here are the background facts:

  1. We have never spent the night away from home without Momma and Dad
  2. Our parents have not been on vacation together since before Eva was born
  3. Momma been saying the word "Florida" lately
Today we went to visit a very nice lady named Tory at DogPad. This is the same doggie day care that Gomer and Opie go to. DogPad does doggie day care and boarding and if you go to the link you will see some very bad words "free baths upon check out". Oh the horror!! We met so many new friends there. This place passed Momma's test and we appeared to pass the "personality test". We get to go back next Friday and spend the whole day!!! (Momma's comment - the girls have never been boarded and I refuse to take them to any place where they would be confined in a 4x6 cell for most of the day. We're going to try a few days of daycare and a few overnight visits to prepare for a weeklong stay in April)


Then we hurried home and dropped off Tasha so that Momma could take me to the evil place. You know what I'm going to say. I don't know if I can even say the word but I'll try.....v...v....v...VET. I still shudder at the thought. The evil man had a hard time getting through all my fur to find my delicate skin to steal my blood and stick me with sharp pointy things. I was a brave pup but I refused to let Momma take my picture there. I do not need any reminders of that place.

We'll close with a few new pictures from today. We weren't very cooperative cuz it was dinner time and Momma wouldn't put our dishes on the floor for us. And we aren't allowed on the counter.




Belly Rubs,
Eva

P.S. Sorry Momma didn't take more pictures during the field trip but she's a little challenged on occasion.

Secret Field Trip

Momma told us that we get to go on a field trip tomorrow. But she won't tell us where. And she got out the evil brush to make us look pretty. Bad Momma!!!

The always bewootiful,
Tasha & Eva

LOOK INTO MY EYES. YOU ARE NOW UNDER MY POWER. NOW, GET UP AND GO GET ME A COOKIE.
UMMMM!! That was good! Tasha, you try that now.

Yes, Tasha got a cookie, too! Humans are so easy. Have a fabulous weekend everypup, kitty, GG and human! Belly Rubs, Eva.
P.S. Did you notice in the last photo that it is a picure of pups with pictures of pups?!?!?

What's in your kibble..

For those who eat kibble - Now that the "public" has become more aware of what can be in our kibble, there are more great kibbles on the market. Kind of a "build it and they will come" or "ask and you shall receive" or "insert your phrase of choice here" result. We have added a few links to our sidebar for those who eat kibble. These are a few sites that have "independent" reviews of kibbles. Check yours and see how it rates. It's all personal choice and different dogs have different needs.

For the record, we have been fed the following (in no particular order and we liked them all):
Eagle Pack
Go! Natural
Natural Balance
Nature's Variety

Belly Rubs,
Tasha & Eva

P.S. As we have Momma type this we are fully aware that we'll have Dad do our "Few words Friday" in just a few hours. We have them well trained.

Momma had to visit the kibble fairy and this month we get NV Prairie Lamb and Oatmeal and the NV Instinct canned venison. The Momma would never eat lamb or venison herself. Something about the lambs and Bambi should be playing in the fields and not on her plate. But since we like it..............

Since we love this kibble so much, we wanted to share this link with those who may want to try a new kibble and for those who eat raw. These coupons do require an additional purchase. Your choice of :
free bag of kibble (4 -5 lb of the Prairie line or Instinct grain-free line)
frozen raw medallions ( 3 lb bag)


We'll close with a picture of Eva checking to see if the neighbor's dogs are out so that she can bark and annoy the other neighbors. She looks very "fluffy" in this picture but she really is fluffy and not FAT. At the next bath time (spring), we'll do a before and after shot to show that she really is all fur!


Belly Rubs,
Tasha & Eva

Few Words Friday

Hello furkids, Eva here. Here is another cute picture that we found.
You need a bath, little one!
Pippa, do you think you could give a little kitty a bath like that? How about you other pups? I don't think that Wilbur or Tia would like that very much!
We would like to congratulate Uno the Beagle for winning Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show the other night. A beagle had never won at Westminster. He sure looked and sounded like a very happy dog after he won. Click on the link to read about his big win.
Have a great weekend everypup, kitty, GG and Human! Belly Rubs, Eva.

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day to all of our friends and our love to each of you today. We appreciate the effort that you spend clawing your humans to post about your lives. All of you bring a little joy to our lives. Thank you!

A special note of love to our Darling Pippa: Maybe you could ask Mistress if you can come visit us once the snow melts. There are a few cats and rabbits in the neighborhood who need a good chasing and you can nap with us on our patio. Plus our Momma is weak when it comes to puppy dog eyes, she always shares her toast with us.

BTW, We were so excited to receive our holiday card from ou
r Darling Pippa. He just received our card the other day also. Apparently, the cards were on a very slow boat but we knew that they would eventually arrive.


Here is what we got for the Momma for Valentine's Day. Dad got her the sappy card, but we each gave her a bag of Kisses! We want her to take them to work with her and then think of us giving her wet, slobbery, puppy kisses when she eats them. What better Valentine's gift can there be than kisses from those you love?

Belly Rubs to all and snoses to Pippa,
Tasha & Eva

Eva's First Stuffie

We have a confession. We're not really into stuffies. Admittedly, we do have a stuffed goose that honks that we like to play with and a few things that crinkle but not a lot of things that squeek.

Here is the evidence. This is the stuffie that Eva's breeder sent home with her.........FOUR years ago. It is always in our toy box and Eva does get it out to play with.

One of the feet is chewed.


A close-up of the damage


We're sorry that we (even Tasha who is part husky) do not have the "Must destroy stuffie" gene.
Forgive us?
Tasha & Eva

Few Words Friday

Hi furkids, Tasha here. There has been nothing exciting to report on this week. I'll just show you a couple of pictures of Eva and I playing in the wonderful snow.




I want to offer you guys a little technical support for your computers this week. Go to this link to get the inside of your screen cleaned. We've tried it and it works really good! Have a great weekend and we'll talk to you soon. Belly Rubs, Tasha.

Toast is GOOOOD!!

On Monday, The Momma was not feeling well and stayed home from work. Nothing exciting happened and we just napped all day. Well, Eva did HORKA in our water dish but Momma said she was not going take a picture of that.

On Saturday, we were thinking of Pippa and toast and asked the Momma for some to illustrate our different eating styles. (What a sneaky way to get a treat). The video that Dad took was too dark so they had to bring out what they call the Aircraft Landing Lights to take the attached video. So it does have some strange lighting.

Tasha eats everything fast and she eats it in the same location where she got the treat. I like to take my time and actually taste my food. and I always have to take the treat to my bed. Which eating style do you have?

Belly Rubs,

Eva

My little sister is weird

Dad caught Eva in a weird pose. The leg that appears to be coming out of nowhere is actually her bottom back leg stretched out on top of her top back leg. Apparently, she thought this was comfortable.

The Momma and Dad also made a video of us this morning but it's too dark to see anything so we asked them to film it again. Hopefully we can post that in the next few days.

Belly rubs,
Tasha

Few Words Friday: Video Edition

Hi fur buddies, Eva here today. Here is a really cute video that a friend of dad sent him. We thought it was pretty cool that two different species of very different sizes can play and have fun together. Humans could learn a thing or two from Scruffy and Bambi!

video

The weather is moderating a little around here finally. I know that we have talked about how cold it has been a lot lately, but that is what we Minnesotans do. People say around here that if you don't like the weather, just wait a day. Today is supposed to be about 25 degrees (-4 C degrees) which means we can probably go for a walk this afternoon! When its really cold dad is too big a wimp to take us out. Plus its hard on our paws with the salt and chemicals on the roads. We don't have very many sidewalks in our neighborhood.

If you haven't heard, Sitka's sister, Tia the kitty has been at the vet the last few days. She had to spend her 15th birhtday there. Poor kitty! She is doing much better and will hopefully be home by later on this afternoon. Go by there site here and give them your best wishes!

Have a fabulous weekend everypup, kitty and GG! Belly Rubs, Eva.
