Thursday Barks And Bytes



The co-hosts for Barks And Bytes are Linda from 2browndawgs and Jodi from Heart Like A Dog
The Barks:
This past Saturday we went to the annual ACC WI Chesapeake Day’s. It was a day of hanging out with some really great Chesapeakes and their peoples. I finally got to see and meet some of my Facebook friends. We started out with registration at the club house then we went out to the field to do some hunt test training on land the dogs did great and had a ton of fun. Next we went to the club house for some really good food and to buy raffle tickets for all the great stuff people brought to donate for the raffle. The raffle money goes for the next years events. After lunch we headed back to the field for water training. This was split into 2 groups, one for beginners and one for the advance dogs. When water work was done we went back to the club house to see who won what and then had a very nice steak supper with all the trimmings.
Here is a picture video of the day.
Sue, Patti and Pam from CRROW – Chesapeake Retriever Rescue Of Wisconsin were there with Yukon who needs a home and their rescue Radar Blind Chessie that Pam adopted.

It was a fabulous day. The dogs were tired for the ride home, everyone wanted to be in the front seat.


One more day for the FREE Promo!

The FREE Promo for Diesel’s book is this Wednesday & Thursday (4/30 – 5/1). Grab your free copy today or tomorrow, get the word out and help out the shelter animals in need. Diesel the Shelter Pup: A True Story …

A true story about a little puppy that was adopted from the animal shelter. The puppy’s name is Diesel and he is a little Plott Hound Mix. He is adorable and we love him very much! This book was written for children to show them how lovable shelter animals can be and to also increase the awareness of the plight of shelter animals. I hope you think Diesel is as adorable as we think he is! 

Here is the review I wrote after reading this great book: This was a well written cute book about a shelter adoption success along with getting the word out on adopting from a shelter vs buying a dog. I loved how she incorporated Diesels mom into the book to get the word out that she still needs a furever home. Just after I read this book Lilly got adopted. What a happy ending. Great pictures to go along with the story.


On certain Friday’s we are still going to the Elementary School and doing our therapy work with the children. The dogs are doing really well and figuring out their purpose. It’s going to be sad when we have our last visit for the year which will be in June. It seems like we just got started (which we did) and now it soon will be summer break. I have to check out therapy work for the summer.

The Bytes:


I don’t know when MK was born but when I got her we figured she was about 3 weeks old so I gave her May 1st as her Birthday. It has been a great first year with many of her 9 lives used up but she is chessy strong and keeps on going. Hope to have many more years with you.

MK decided she had cabin fever and is happy to dash outside now that the weather is better. She hangs out around the house and is only out when we are out.

Stop by tomorrow for FitDog Friday and see some more pictures from our fun day.

  1. WOW! Those photos from Chessie Day are fantastic! The dogs look great…and we chuckled at the Chessie-themed license plates. 🙂 Happy Birthday to MK. I am sure she doesn’t mind “when” her birthday is so long as everyone celebrates her once in a while.
    Happy Thursday SS Gang!


  2. Happy Happy Birthday dear MK, that’s a very tasty cake! Seems you learnt a lot from your doggie-siblings, your managed the hat thingy very well! I wish we had such events for Weims here too, but we not only live on the wrong side of the pond, we also live behind the moon :o) The video is great and the music of Toby Keith fits perfectly! Have a super may day


  3. Thanks for joining the blog hop, it sure looks like you all had a ball last weekend. Considering how lucky you’ve been lately did you win anything from the raffle?

    Happy Birthday to Miss MK, I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since you’ve had her already!!


  4. Love that video! Looks like you all had a fabulous time. Happy birthday to MK. Those photos are hilarious! Skeeter won’t let me near her when I have hats in my hand – lol


  5. MK is already a year old?! Geez o flip! And all those Chessies sure are pretty. It’s awesome meeting virtual friends in the fur!


  6. Isn’t it fun to finally meet people you know online? We have met a few so far. Happy birthday to MK! We don’t know how old our kitties are either but we gave them their adoption day as their birthday.
