This and That Thursday

This...
   I hope y’all had a great Christmas and Santa left goodies for everyone.  We had a great day and the boys were thrilled with all of their treats and toys.  Bentley got a Kong bed and has already told me that he will be sleeping in late this morning.  Pierre had so many new squeaky toys to choose from, he ran in circles grabbing each in his mouth.  You can see them in these photos from Christmas morning.  Pierre wants me to explain that he simply did not have a chance for his usual primping before
the camera appeared.  They had a wonderful time playing and chasing each other as they snatched toys from one another.    

   This...The next few days will be rough on Bentley since fireworks are legal in our city.  He absolutely HATES all types of fireworks.  We will let him out in the backyard to do his business, he’ll get halfway across the yard, and a firecracker will pop.  He makes a U-turn, hustling his tail back to the door, and promising that he doesn’t need to go that bad.  New Year’s Eve is torture for him so we keep the television turned up and he stays between us on the couch.  Pierre doesn’t get too upset about the noise, he will bark at them.  Luckily, the neighborhood pyrotechnic display has dwindled down over the past few years.

  This too... My “Make Your Pet A Star” contest ended and I have to choose three finalists out of all my entries.  It’s exciting to be able to feature someone’s pet in my new book.  I’ll be posting the three most interesting pet stories on my Facebook page December 29th.  The pet with the most “likes” on their photo will be the winner.  I’ll begin writing the third installment of The Returns in January.  It is always fun to start a new adventure with the gang.  I truly love going off into my own little world of my special dogs, cats, FBI agents, and angels to begin a new adventure.  In this book, they are on the trail of someone threating New Orleans with explosives.  It should be quite an experience.

  And That... I’m not one to make New Year’s resolutions because I never like to set myself up for a failure.  However, I am seriously considering taking SlimDoggy up on the “Resolve to Move Your Mutt” challenge.  If you want to join me and I’d really like some company…here is the link to SlimDoggy’s blog with the information: http://slimdoggy.com/new-years-resolutions-for-your-dog/ Bentley and I would both benefit from getting in better shape.  I love him way too much to lose him because he is overweight.  Pierre isn’t overweight but he would love to be even more active.  You can check back with me on the big plan and let’s do this together with SlimDoggy.  He has a lot of great information to share.

   That’s it for my first This and That Blog Hop.  I appreciate 2 Brown Dawgs and Ruckus the Eskie for hosting this hop.  Before you leave to see what everyone else is blogging about, please check out THIS Adoptable Pet because it is important!

Hi, my name is Pinkie.  I’m a fun-loving girl looking for my forever family.  You can tell by my sweet face that I’ll make someone a wonderful best friend.  We could take walks, play fetch, and you could teach me all sorts of impressive tricks.  Everyone needs a best girlfriend to keep their secrets, listen to them without interrupting, and to give them a hug.  Hey, that’s describes me perfectly!  Please call PetSavers to schedule an appointment so we can meet.  You’ll be so glad you did.

    1. Hi Hawk, Thanks for dropping by to see us. We are looking forward to moving and shifting some weight around. : )
      I'm hoping many people will find a place for these adorable homeless dogs at PetSavers. They do such a great job. I appreciate your wishes.

  4. Thanks so much for participating in TNT. Sounds like Santa brought good stuff. The squeaky toys would be a hit with Storm. Those are her favorites. We get a lot of fireworks here too. Freighter barks at them. Storm sleeps through them. Thunder is not a fan. :)

    1. Bentley is certain the fireworks started early this year. We have discovered the "granddog" likes to bark at them. It will be a very noisy few days.
