Almost Wordless Wednesday

Momma was tired of our fur showing on the boring foyer rug. So she got us one that matches our personalities and our fur.She tried to find a cheetah print that would match Eva's crate pad but had to go with tiger stripes.

Woof ya later!

Dog CPR

Since not everypup can use our PSA from our earlier post, we found the following video for how to do pet CPR.




Since our mom could panic in this situation, she practiced finding our pulse today.

Lazy Rainy Days and a PSA

We've had a few gray & rainy days so we have not had any adventures in the past few days. Momma got tired of rescuing the sofa pillows from me so she put them away. That made me so sad because I love to shake them! Meany Momma told me to settle down and take a nap. Thankfully, I'm big enough to use the arm of the sofa as a pillow! But the sun is shining today so I'm nipping at Momma's heels to take us to the park to run off some pent up energy.



In the current economy, we wanted to share with you several ways to save money on some of your medical needs. We do like to shop local and support our vet, but there are times that getting medications at our vet cuts into our treat and toy budget. Were you aware that many of your dog and cat prescriptions can be filled at a regular pharmacy for less? There are online options too but they would include a shipping cost. Plus the convenience of having the prescription filled while your parents do their other shopping.

Publix will fill your prescription for some antibiotics for free!

Walgreens includes pet prescriptions in their Prescription Savings Club. There is a fee for this program but this includes 400 generics priced at $12 for a 90 day supply. Plus many Walgreens are open 24/7

Walmart also has a list of generics priced at $10 for a 90 day supply. This may be a good option for those of you on Prednisone.

These are just some of the options. So have your parents check with pharmacies in your area...... and suggest that they spend some of their savings on a new toy for you!

Woof ya later!

Our weekend

Those of you who were in on the secret were correct. The picture from Friday's post was 3yr old Belgian Malinois named Dodi. A Belgian Malinois is just like us but with shorter fur. Of course we must give a tip of the hat to Khyra for hosting Dodi at her home for a few hours and for letting her mom be part of the wonderful transport team that got her from Maryland to her foster home in Wisconsin.

Note from Momma - If you know someone that could provide an active foster home for a Belgian in need or would like to adopt one of these amazing dogs, please contact ABMC Belgian Malinois Rescue via their website.

Dodi

Our Momma was suppose to be doing a transport of her own on Saturday but her portion was cancelled so she took us to the park instead.

Nothing like a good game of zoomies to burn some energy

then Eva thought it was time for some snoofing

Brice gave us a heads-up that there was something interesting at the gate

This pup came to the park. Her people said that she was an Akita/German Shepherd mix.
We think she may have been an Akita with a Terv coat.

Today, we did a family walk in our own neighborhood.

Princess Eva always walks with Dad

And Brice always has Momma at the end of his leash

Our neighborhood has wooded trails that run between some of the streets

Sometimes we see other pups but today, it was our neighbors Bob and Jane.

There is a rumor that now that the weather is starting to cool and the leaves are beginning to change colors, it may be time for a bath before it gets too chilly. We're going to try to distract the humans so that it doesn't happen this week.

Woof ya later!

A new experience

As we've shared before, Momma and Dad try to make sure that we're exposed to lots of different environments and experiences. This weekend, we went to the Renaissance Fair. There were lots of other dogs there because it was PetFest weekend but we didn't see any other Belgians. We were on our best behavior because Momma says that we have to be good ambassadors for the breed.-no barking, pulling or stealing food.


Look at all the people in funny costumes


Watching various musicians, magicians and other silly humans


Brice meeting a big white fluffy

Waiting nicely with Momma

Come closer! I want to snoof you
(you can expand this pic and see the tip of Brice's snooter stretching towards his new friend)

Thank you

If I could just reach it's head!
Brice was giving the sheep and goats play bows and tried to whap one on the head

Momma says that I'm suppose to herd you and not try to play with you


Brice posing

These puppies look familiar

Eva snoofin' another pup

Look at those really big puppies!
(The white spot on Brice's neck is a tag attached to his collar that all dogs had to wear)

Brice wanted to get closer but didn't want to scare the elephants and camels.

This pup really wanted to meet Brice

We went right when it opened and stayed for less than 2 hours. It was getting warm and crowded so Dad suggested that we head home for a well-deserved nap.

Brice's New Toy

Fat Cat/rope/ball

A little game of tug to peak my interest!
Eva was just waiting to nip my rear when I wasn't paying attention.


Taunting me to get me to jump higher

Gathering power!
If I didn't have so much fur, you'd see my muscles start to quiver

Got it!!!!

Mine!!!!

Later Gators!!

How Brice keeps cool

Last summer we shared the pics and video of Brice and the sprinkler. Today we're going to share what Momma tries to avoid every time that she puts water in our pool.

Brice likes to bite at the water both near

and farther away

Don't believe me? Watch this.



And where am I while he is being easily amused? Sitting far, far away.

Woof ya later!
Princess Eva

p.s. We are careful that he doesn't get too much water since that can be dangerous

No success at a better pic!

We went back to Staring Lake to try to get a better picture of Brice jumping over his favorite log. Either we need a better faster camera or Brice needs to run and jump slower.

Just amblin' along the paths

Brice looking at the log.
You can kind of see that this is a pretty steep hill.


Brice approaching for the jump!


This was the only decent shot from this direction

But we had a few shots like this one but Momma doesn't let him do the downhill jump a lot.
She worries about the impact to his joints.

We know that we won't get him to run and jump slower so we may borrow a better camera in order to show his great form.

Woof ya later,
Princess Eva
