Follow-Up/FitDog Friday

We are joining Jodi at Heart Like A Dog for Follow-Up Friday.
Welcome to this week’s edition of Follow-Up Friday, the blog hop that lets you wrap up your week and leads you right into the weekend.
Hop on over to Heart Like A Dog as she is one of the Co-Hostess for this years Win dog-centric gifts from Dog Lover Gift Baskets in the Advent Calendar for Dog Lovers Giveaway Event. Today will be Day 6 of course. They are having all kinds of really cool give-aways so get on over there and see what will be next.
Jodi says:
Beautiful JoAnn, just beautiful. I wish I’d have had Sampson’s semen saved. I would love an off-spring of his.
A little Sampson would be so cute! I might just have to do a blog post now on saving semen! 


Gman said he is going to work hard on gaining your trust again so when stuff happens you don’t automatically think it is him. LOL

I did manage to glue the basin back together and I even after a year glued the handle back on the brown pitcher gman broke. 

All Fixed.

Oz the Terrier says:

Hunting is great exercise! And oh, how I love all the safety orange gear!

For the past two weeks the dogs have been wearing some type of orange as it is gun/muzzle loader deer hunting season so we put orange on them so hopefully they don’t get shot at. Gman gets to wear the vest as his chest doesn’t have much hair on it so this protects his chest. 

Very cool. I like how they came out and really like the magnets!
I really like the magnets too, I like bumper stickers but like the magnet idea for bumper stickers so they aren’t stuck to your vehicle.

Thank you for all the great Birthday wishes for my girl. She is getting to be all grown up but she still has a playful puppy attitude. 

MK’s tree is cool….is that homemade?

I have the best friend ever, she didn’t make me one cat tree she made me TWO! I have a horizontal one in the loft area for her also. 

This year I signed up for The Pet Bloggers Gift Exchange hosted bySomething Wagging This Way Comes and her co-hostess Pup Fan from I still want more puppies,  I was paired with Peggy Frezon from Peggy’s Pet Place. If you haven’t met her hop on over and say Hi and stay tuned for my post about her.

Moving on to FitDog Friday


I have some exciting news for FitDog Friday. First off over at PetsMove_logo

Nellie won first place at the November Senior’s Move month. You can read about all the winners here. We were happy to hear we won with Nellie moving 182 paws. All her moving has paid off as I finally weighed her and she is down 5 more pounds. I do believe this summer she was 78# and now she weighs 68#. The pounds might be a bit off as I weighed her on my bathroom scale so until I take her to work with me we will go with that number. She does look thinner as she now as a bit of a waist line. She still needs to loose a couple more pounds.

First Prize – to Nellie is the winner of our cool tech prize, Heyrex. HeyRex is a New Zealand based company that has developed (and released) a wearable device to monitor your dog’s activity, sleep, and scratching. We wrote about it over on SlimDoggy if you want to learn more. We are very excited to have won this gadget and can’t wait to try it out.

All this huffing and puffing has shed me some pounds.

  1. Wow! What a busy week over there at Sand Spring! Big congratulations to Nellie for winning the Senior Division but also for losing some weight! It’s not easy to do once you get older, believe me. She looks just beautiful.
    I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Will you be out hunting in your safety orange again?


  2. Congratulations Nellie! We had a yellow lab who needed to lose weight, I wish I knew then what I know now, thanks to all you smart bloggers. Kelly had kept her weight off, and our golden Ike actually needs to gain weight.


  3. Oh that is great news about Nellie winning and losing weight! I know how hard it is to get those pounds off them. It took us over a year to help Sampson and Delilah lose all their weight.

    As for Sampson, well he was an adorable puppy and so damn easy too. You would have loved him. Honestly if I had the money, I’d have some of his DNA saved and I’d probably clone him. I can’t bear the thought of being without him. And I am looking forward to your post on semen. LOL

    Thanks for joining the hop, I hope you have an awesome weekend!


  4. Wow, you have a lot going on. BTW, loved seeing Glory in her birthday hat. That must have been one yummy birthday treat.

    When you started talking to her on the video, the two dogs who we’re petsitting this weekend came running looking for their treat. Thanks for stirring up trouble. 🙂

    Can’t wait to see your gift exchange post for Peggy. She’s such a wonderful person it will be easy to say lots of nice things about her. 🙂


  5. Yay for Nellie for her win at PetsMove and also for losing all that weight. We all know it’s not easy! Love the video of Glory, especially when she takes the hat off…..she was done with that! 🙂
