FitDog Friday~Wet Wubba Fun

This week the SS gang got to go to the lake for the first time all summer….summer you say…..what summer?

I ordered up some Kong Wet Wubba’s from Dognpawz online store where I got three of them for a steal, you know I had to get three so each dog could have it’s own. I was pleasantly surprised when they came and I had three different colors. I love bright colors and these were just perfect!

As you can see from the video the gang had a great time playing with them at the lake and a ton of exercise was had by all. We will be doing this again very soon before our summer is gone before we knew it was here.

Remember Slimdoggy Jack and Maggie celebrated their Gotcha day last weekend, the SS gang shared in their celebration and after the photo shoot they had their after the party fun, enjoy the video.


The fun and games continue every Friday with FitDog Friday, the weekly Blog Hop brought to you by To Dog With LoveSlimDoggy and their new co-hostess Emma from MyGBGV Life   to promote a healthy active lifestyle for pets (and their people, too!). Join in every Friday by linking up your FitDog story or visiting the blogs in the Hop.

From all the great cards our pals got it looks like their Gotcha Day celebration was a big hit. Hope they have many many more.

Monday Mischief~Glory’s Second Litter

Last week Glory had her second litter…..her second false pregnancy rubber ducky litter. It was a litter of one and Glory is a good momma and is taking care of her little rubber ducky.

Look mom I had a baby.

Glory making a nest for her baby.

Covering up her baby.

This was the first day of her false pregnancy. She wanted to make a nest and hide the baby. Here is a video of her making a nest.

Glory had to take her baby training.

Can I bring my baby out?

Can’t leave the baby behind.

This duck hasn’t been around since the last time Glory was in heat. They really don’t play with toys much. The day she started her false pregnancy she went to the toy box, dug around and pulled out the duck. This happens to be the same duck Nellie thought was her baby when she had false pregnancy’s. Now that Glory is carrying this duck around Gambler thinks he should have it too so he is constantly trying to get it from her.

Give me your baby.

I want your baby!

I got the baby.

I’m just babysitting…really….I am!

Gambler “babysitting” the ducky.

No worries, I got my baby back.

Hopefully this false pregnancy won’t last that long and the gang can get back to normal.

Nothing But Norman #54

Happy Saturday All!

First off I have to start by saying sometimes I am a dumbass and it takes me awhile to catch on to things and I have no problem pointing out that I am a dumbass because the truth is the truth. Thanks to The Pet Parade announcing today is their 50th post I realized after they said they will be having a 1 yr anniversary celebration in two weeks so they weren’t doing anything for their 50th post. Then it hit……I did a 50th post celebration as I thought that was a big mile stone, and in doing so I completely blitzed Nothing But Norman’s 1 year Anniversary which is a even bigger mile stone. Luckily I did give away a paracord collar so we did technically have a celebration.

I started Nothing But Norman 2 weeks and one year ago after Norman was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma. I wanted a way to follow his journey and to make a day just his. With the help of my friend Jodi over at Heart Like A Dog who came up with the name of my Saturday posts Nothing But Norman was born and now that he is gone I can share his pictures and stories and keep him alive in my heart and memories. I haven’t been blogging very long….ok I think 2 years with 1.5 years a lot but he still didn’t get the limelight he so richly deserves. So here’s to you Norman Happy Belated 1 year of your stories!


Project16 - Copy - Copy - Copy


A couple weeks ago I posted up some flying pictures of Norman, you can see them here.

Those were from back in the day when I was a counselor at Dog Camp. It was a camp for you and your dog. I took Norman in 2007. I didn’t know how he would be with all the other dogs around because he was still intact and didn’t have much contact with other dogs. He did fabulous. On our down time we did pier jumping hence the flying pictures. We took a massage class which he loved and we got our picture taken together which I will cherish forever. I love the beach ones and have one enlarged to a 8×10 sitting in my bed room. Here are the originals in color and in Sepia for Sepia Saturday with Ruckus The Eskie. One of my bosses at the vet clinic was the owner of Dog Camp, she no longer does it so we don’t get to go with the new generation 😦

Enjoy the photos!
