Today is April’s Fool’s Day with a Wordless Wordy Wednesday. There’s no joke about it the SS gang is a SUPERSTAR with a hugh celebration and giveaway. Are you dying to find out why today is so special? Has anyone figured out what could possibly have us celebrating?




Today marks 1000 post for the Sand Spring Gang!

Do ya believe it??? 1000 posts!

It all started back on November 17, 2011 when I started this blog to keep a diary of my last litter I had with Nellie which happened to be the litter I kept a precious girl from, The Gloryous one! I didn’t blog much in the beginning but now I am working on trying to blog once a day for the second year in a row.

If you would like to go back in time here is my very first blog post which you can read  here.

I think this is a big deal and since we are superstar’s the gang would like to have a giveaway. We are giving away 2 Easter Baskets.

The Easter Baskets will contain some Norman’s Kisses Hand To Paw Cream, Chapstick, a paracord collar and leash, some Jones Natural Chews along with some miscellaneous stuff.

The give away will be going on for one week click the rafflecopter below to enter.

The Queen Of Hearts Dance~ Stanzie Is Gman’s Queen

lgthe queen of hearts

Thank you Madi & Mom for hosting this great event. 

It’s time it’s time it’s Valentines Day and time for me to wine and dine my sweetheart Stanzie. We are headed to The Queen of Hearts Dance.

I have never been to a dance before nor on a date so I hope I don’t mess things up with this little lady. 

Do you all think she will think I am cool?

Do you all think she will think I am cool?

So let the festivities begin! I start out by jumping in my really cool camouflage big badass truck and head over to pick up Stanzie for our date. Stanzie’s idea of the perfect date is going on a hunt and deading something, going along with that her favorite food is Turkey. Boy do I have a surprise for her.

I hear she likes her man to be manly……I think I am pretty manly in this bigass truck, she for sure should fall for me.

I arrive at Stanzie’s and she is so excited to see me she fly’s out of the house and races down to meet me. It’s time to give her the big surprise before the dance. But first let me see if she will let me give her a big smoochie.

I’m not all redneck Stanzie, I bring you these beautiful roses too. Shhhh…..Madi gave them to me to give to you 😉
For our first date Stanzie I brought you a deaded Turkey, next date I will take you hunting and have you help deaden something.

Time to get rolling and head on over to the Queen Of Hearts Dance. 
Since we had our formal wear on Stanzie suggested we take her car to the dance. She said I could drive! How cool is that? So of course I said yes and away we went!
The complete list of events can be found here, follow along with the fun.
Here we are, ready to get down with all the others and pawty!

During the dance we get to play Pin The Heart On The Donkey. You can follow along here. Thank you Margs Animals for hosting this event. 
The next event I am going to sneek away and do as I don’t want to upset my sweetheart. I am headed over to the Kissing Booth for a sweet kiss from Cinderella. You can follow along here. Don’t tell Stanzie what shenanigans I am up to. Thank you  to The Legacy Chronicles for hosting this event.
I also sent off a Love Message which you can read here. Thank you Maggie Mae and Max for hosting this event.
Now onto the really cool event…….The Garden Walk which you can see here. Thank you to my girlfriend Stanzie and her brother Wyatt from Gardening With Wyatt for hosting this event. This was really awesome, I think we look spectacular doing the garden walk!

Love is definitely in the air tonight, this has been the best dance ever and I have the best date ever. Since Stanzie doesn’t care about age or height, she just likes studs I have a question for her.


Thanks to Easy and Frank for a match made in heaven!


Don’t forget to check out all the events and see the fun being had by all. 

Check it out here!

Thank you Stanzie for a wonderful first date!

Love Gambler, Gman, G$ and the Giblet!

Monday Mischief ~Birthday Boy

My Mischief started 2 years ago on Friday the 13th with the birth of my #1 mischief maker. He was “lime green boy” one of 8 puppies out of my male HRCH Sand Spring Norm Of Caroway MH and HRCH Hope Springs Dowry MH***



I wanted a light male if there was one and low and behold there was one and he was all mine. I brought him home at 7 weeks of age, gave him the name of “Gambler” nicknamed “Gman, G$, Giblet, Giebler”  from that day forward he has been the biggest mischief maker I have had so far. Norman and Nellie were easy pups, not this guy. Maybe it was because I brought his sister Marie home with me to. She would stay with me for 5 months waiting for her time to be able to fly to the UK. I used to call these two the terrorist or the gruesome twosome. They were always into something. What one didn’t think of the other one thought of. They kept me on my toes and at the time I thought to my self I would never get 2 pups at the same time again!


Gambler has helped me clean out my house as he would get into lots of mischief by chewing on anything not bolted down. He broke more knick knacks than I can count on 2 hands, he has destroyed more area rugs than any dog I have ever owned. He loved to eat candles, wood, dog beds……..Needless to say my house is less cluttered. All the time he was destroying stuff he has wormed his way into my heart. I have wanted a Norman pup ever since Norman was old enough to reproduce. It took me 8 years and I finally got one and I wouldn’t trade him for any other dog in the world. He is the most gentle guy, he cleans my face raw with his kisses, he always sleeps curled up in a ball up by my head with his head laying on my chest sometime during the night. He is so quite also, while all the other dogs will bark when they hear a noise, he will just look around at what they are barking at. He hardly ever makes a peep. I think I heard him bark at something two times. He will thou do the chessie roo when he is excited. He will grab anything he can get in his mouth and roo while he is running around with the item in his mouth. He will also roo when he is getting reprimanded as if to tell us what four!

Gambler roo’in with my boot.


In the past 2 years I have gotten his UKC conformation title on him along with being the #1 chessie in the 2012 UKC Top Ten breed standing, he has gotten his UKC Started Hunter title as well as his AKC Junior Hunter title. I have also trained him to hunt upland and waterfowl, he as already been to Canada snow goose hunting. He is turning out to be one heck of a dog, friend, companion, and possibly a new soulmate (right now daddy Norman is my soulmate).

After all the titles I have gotten on him his registered name looks like this now: SHR U-CH Sand Spring Ev’ry Paw’s A Winner JH. Hopefully one day those titles will change and become bigger better ones in there place.


Gman speaking:

I had a great Birthday party. I had to celebrate this past weekend as mom was out of town for work on my Birthday. We had tons of fun. I got to bop for hotdogs, pop balloons, open presents, eat cake, wear different outfits. The other doggies in the house got to wear my birthday hats and eat cake. What a grand time I had.

Nellie’s 8th Birthday

Birthday girl licking her plate clean.

A good time was had by all.

10/7/12 was Nellie’s 8th Birthday. She just returned home from a week hunting in Saskatchewan and she got quite the home-coming with a Birthday cake. Misty Shore’s Chesapeakes was nice enough to share their Birthday blog with us so we used the same recipe they used since her dogs loved it. Take a moment to hop on over to their blog and take a peak at what their chesapeakes are up to. Thank you Misty Shore’s for letting me use your recipe, it was easy to cook and my gang loved it also.

Here is the recipe for those of you who would like to try it also for upcoming occasions.

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup corn oil
4 oz. jar baby food, meat, beef, chicken, lamb (I used chicken and rice)
4 eggs
2 Tablespoons real bacon bits
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour an 8x5x3 inch loaf pan. Mix first five ingredients together until smooth. Add bacon bits and mix.

The supplies and recipe.

The spoon lickers.

Of course Gambler stole the bowl to lick.

Ready to cook.

Hiding spot so Gambler doesn’t eat it.

Finished product.

The frosting was a mixture of canned pumkin and plain yogurt. 8 rawhide chewies as the candles.

Right after Nellie got home she got to enjoy her Birthday cake, she had to share with the gang and everyone LOVED it.

Birthday girl.


First lick.

The gang.

Glory off by herself.
