Yesterday, shortly after breakfast, Dad left at his normal time but he took the vroom-vroom machine in the garage. Sometimes he takes it to work but usually not. We started watching for Dad to come home around 3pm as usual.

Hmmm...4 pm and Dad's not home yet.

5pm and no Dad yet. Dad...we're starting to worry.

7pm....we realize Dad is lost and we have to start a search party. We started searching this morning!

We checked the Grand Canyon and didn't find him

He loves water so we started to check the coastline. Not on this beach!

We're going to search until we find him. Have you seen our Dad?

Protecting Dad

Neither Brice nor Eva really begs for food but Brice is always aware of when food may be "available". Any food left within reach and not closely supervised, may not be there when you get back.

I'm just here to protect Dad in case his dinner jumps off his plate and attacks!

Dad showing Brice his appreciation for another meal safely completed

And thanked Eva for protecting his beer.
Eva loves beer, not that she ever gets any.
But if she can smell it, she's close by in case it spills

Woof ya later!

Princess Eva is very reserved so she doesn't play with very many pups. She prefers to sit on her Dad's feet just like a penguin baby.

We really like this park but it's a lot farther from home so we don't get there very often.

Fun, torture and a prize

It's been either raining or hot, so we didn't get to the park today but did a short loop around the park yesterday. I have such a thick coat that the temperature and humidity determines whether we get to the park or not.

Unfortunately my coat resulted in lots of this.See the fur flying? It was everywhere and they're still not done.
They used one torture instrument to get the bulk out and then Momma needs to go over me again with the fancy brush. And I had to submit to getting my nails done. It always surprises Momma that I let her Dremel my nails since I'm usually scared of anything that makes noise.
(Yes, Brice is in the foreground trying to get in on a little grooming action)

I won the monthly drawing for a new collar at Life with Dogs. If you don't follow Nigel, Sola and Truffles yet, please stop by to check them out. Momma has been emailing with the lovely lady at to pick the perfect collar. (I'm getting a fabric ribbon that isn't even on the website yet!)

We should have something new for our next post. We have a playdate set up for tomorrow morning. We promise lots of pics of our adventure.

Woof ya later!

Almost Wordless Wednesday

Momma wishes we would pant in unison.

We can help!

Dad asked us to help

We don't think that he could have done it without us.

Woof Ya Later!

p.s. Momma is staying home with us since it's a "boys trip".

Saturday at the Park

This cutie's name is Laska
(not the Laska that Khyra's mom transported a few weeks ago)

Brice playing with another pup

Brice does run off to play with other pups, but he always come back to me

Dad had to run something back to the trash so now he's roaming the park looking for us

Brice off to rescue Dad and let him know where we were

Then it was time for zoomies

After the zoomies, we always have seeds and foliage all over us

Stopping to pull the seeds and stray foliage out of our fur so that it doesn't cause problems later

Time to head back home. It's almost dinner time!

Woof ya later!
Princess Eva & Brice the Bobble Head

p.s. Thanks everyone for not making too much fun of The Boy's pictures. He really is very floofy but I think that part of it is a big head due to his inflated ego.

For Phantom the Fluffy

Our friends over at NY Bully Brats has a great post today - wearing shirts in support of Phantom from OP Pack.

We're sending love and support to Phantom and his family

It looks like Brice's head is Photoshopped

Brice insisted on a manly shirt so he's wearing one of Dad's shirts from the Sturgis Rally
(Dad leaves on the 30th for this year's rally)

Princess Eva wearing her special storm shirt that protects her from boomies

Woof ya later!

p.s. Sorry that we're so furry that shirts look funny on us.

The dog park and things people say

Instead of the normal park report, we're going to share some of the comments/questions that we hear at the dog park. And rarely does someone see us without making some kind of comment.

Yesterday, someone said one of the things that really bothers Momma.
Question= "Since you have one of each, are you going to breed them?"
Momma ="Eva is not breeding quality and Brice's contract required him to be neutered"
She tries to not get into the responsible breeding speech in this type of casual conversation but if it continues she does bring up puppy mills and breed rescues.

Another one from yesterday
Question - "Is he aggressive?"
Momma - "No he's not, is there a reason why you asked?"
Questioner - "He stands tall with his head held high and shoulders back"
Momma - "He is a very confident dog with some dominant traits but he is not aggressive"

Question - "Collie mix?, german shepherd mix?, husky mix?"
Momma - "Actually, they are a less common breed called Belgian Tervuren"
There was one guy who asked if we were from the same litter of mixes and would not believe Momma when she said that we are actually a breed.
Actually we think it's funny when kids say that we're fox dogs or wolf dogs.

Such a happy boy! Hard to get zoomie shots since the grass is so high.
Dad keeps asking Brice if he is part white-tail deer.

Question - "Do they shed?"
Momma - thinking Duh!! politely answers "Yes"

Question - "What are they bred for?"
Momma - "Originally herding but now they are also used for Search and Rescue, service dogs and law enforcement."

The most common comments are that we are beautiful, friendly, move so gracefully and love to run.

Woof ya later!

Almost Wordless Wednesday

Brice at the open patio door saying "It's 5pm, where's my dinner?"

Can we get a new photographer?

We went out to get a new picture for the DWB blog list. The photo shoot was full of failures. Not our fault since we are extremely photogenic. Our photographer is "challenged". Can we get a new one?

Are you shining a spotlight on my tongue?

Ummm..... there are leaves blocking my beauty!

Could you maybe find the right setting on the camera?
Maybe something that won't make us blurry?

Maybe you should not stand behind a tree?

We'll try again tomorrow.

Woof ya later,

Were they still there?

Only darling Ammy was correct. The moo-tubes and hooves were on the counter for 24 hours and Brice never touched them.

Bricey says "Thanks Momma!"


Eva politely waits for the "OK"

Eva trying to decide which end to start on!

Since they were so big, we only got to eat half of them. Momma says that we'll get them back tomorrow to finish.

Woof ya later!
Princess Eva & Bricey

p.s. The agility show started at 6:45 am and the big dogs were running first but Momma didn't get there until 10 so she missed a lot of the big dogs. She did see a Sibe, a Terv and a Belgian Sheepdog doing their runs this morning and she heard rumors that a Great Dane was there too but never saw him.
