The Pets of the Week!

Hello Friends!
Thanks so much for all the kind words and thoughts for Zoe!
We are so happy to let you all know that she is recovering well and hopefully she will be able to go home in a few days!

Here are today's Bingo numbers:
8 ... 48 ... 4

I'm glad that you stopped by to see our Pets of the Week! We found an army of sibes that are in need of loving homes!

This is Crystal!
She lives in Illinois.

She is 1 1/2 years old. She loves to run in the yard and get exercise. She is getting adjusted to shelter life and is a little skeptical of strangers.

If you live near Crystal and are looking for a pretty pal, you can find out more about her on her page at

Doesn't she look like a great sibe sister who has taught her sib siblings lots?! It's Stormy!

This is Junior!
He lives in Missouri.

He is a red and white sibe that is about 7 1/2 years old! He is well socialized with people and other dogs but would prefer a forever home without cats. He walks well on a leash, knows how to sit and wait at doorways and is crate trained!

If you live near Junior and are looking for a handsome husky, you can find out more about him on his page at

Can you guess which of my friends he looks like? It's Zim, the zen master!

This is Cinnamon!
She lives in Indiana.

She is very sweet and loves nothing more than to be petted all day! She likes to stick close with people and has great house manners! She is also fine with kitty cats!

If you live near Cinnamon and are looking for a sweet sibe, you can find out more about her on her page at

She reminds me of the Army of Four's chief meteorologist, Ammy!

This is Ruben!
He lives in Maryland.

He is generous with kisses and loves to snuggle in your lap! He would do best with a canine companion and a family that is very active with their dogs!

If you live near Ruben and are looking for a playful pal, you can find out more about him on his page at

I bet you can guess which of my friends he looks like (minus the freckles)! It's Dave of course!

Are you looking for a new forever friend but don't live near Crystal, Junior, Cinnamon or Ruben?
Don't worry! Just go to and search for pets in your area!

The Surgery is Over!

Hello Friends!
I am so happy to report that Owner Girl's little sis Zoe is out of surgery and all went well!
Some of you have asked what was wrong and why she needed heart surgery so we borrowed this little tidbit from her carepage (written by OG's Mom).
. . . .
"Zoe was adopted from China in Dec 2007. I was aware that she had a VSD (Ventricular Septal Defect) but was told that it was minor (small hole).We were told that she would not require any treatment at the first heart visit but then 6 mos later (june 08) the ultrasound of her heart showed that as the hole was trying to close it had pulled in part of the valve.This is not a good thing, gone untreated it would cause problems for her."
. . . .
There are several more detailed updates on OG's Mom's Blog if you want to check it out, I'm sure Zoe and everyone else would love your support as she begins recovery!

The New Bed

Hello Friends!
Sorry that I have been around much lately, Owner Girl has been pretty busy with other things and feels bad that she hasn't had much time to update my bloggy or visit my friends! Sorry especially to everyone playing my Bingo game, we haven't had time to update bingo numbers either but we hope to have some time tomorrow to get caught up with friends and update Bingo cards!
Since I am sure you are all missing my cute face, here is a picture of me on my new dog bed!

Owner Girl made it just for me so I would have a nice soft place to lay when she is doing busy people stuff in the office.

In other news, Owner Girl's little sister Zoe will be going in for heart surgery on this Friday the 26th.

We are all getting a little nervous for the surgery and would really appreciate any thoughts and prayers that all goes well with the surgery and that Zoe makes a fast recovery.
We will update on how she is doing. You can also visit Owner Girl's mom's blog (not sure if she will be updating or not). Hopefully we'll be back tomorrow for True Colors Thursday!

The Pets of the Week!

Hello Friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

We unexpectedly took a break from the pets of the week but we have some great pets to show you today!

This is Mollie!
She lives in Minnesota.

She is a very sweet and shy girl that came from a very abusive situation where she was used only for breeding. She is amazingly still a sweet 7 - 8 year old Boston Terrier!

If you live near Mollie and are looking for a sweet sidekick, you can find out more about her on her page at

Doesn't Mollie remind you of another sweet Boston Terrier we all know and love? It's Petra!

This is Harley!
He is being fostered in Iowa but his rescue is based in Minnesota.

He is a 7 year old Golden Retriever that recently had one of his back legs amputated. He is recovering very well and is running and doing beautifully with three legs.

If you live near Harley and are looking for a furry friend, you can find out more about him on his page at

I think he looks like my happy, dog park loving friend, Thor!

This is Bambi!
She lives in Georgia.

She is about 3 yrs old, very sweet and playful. She listens well and is your typical velcro dane. Bambi is a small girl. She is only about 60lbs.

If you live near Bambi and are looking for a darling dane, you can find out more about her on her page at

Bambi reminds me of one of my largest friends! It's the great dane with a great heart, Honey!

Are you looking for a forever friend but don't live near Mollie, Harley or Bambi? Don't Worry!
Just go to and search for pets in your area!

Hello Friends!

Here are today's Bingo Numbers:
29 ... 23 ... 45
(we might not be able to update Bingo cards until Friday afternoon but don't worry we will make sure everyone's cards get marked!)

I am so happy that it's Thursday cuz that means it's time for True Colors Thursday!
It also means that the weekend is right around the corner!

This week's color was Black & Tan together! It was another tough one!

I found this black & tan stone that Owner Boy has as part of his eagle collection.

Also, here's an exclusive look at my office which has black & tan decor.

And lastly here is a black and tan picture of me on a tan blanket!

Blue is the host of this meme. Stop by her blog and let her know if you want to play too!
Next Week's color is MAROON!

The Baby Birds

Hello Friends!
Here are today's Bingo numbers:
30 . . 54 . . 61

It has been very boring at my house lately. I don't have any fun adventures to post about and now it's going to rain everyday until forever. I don't even have any new pictures of me to share but we do have some pretty cool pictures of some baby birds that Owner Girl saw at her work.

There is this little bird nest by the entrance to Owner Girl's work and it had 6 baby birds in it.
She kept forgetting to bring her camera to take pictures of them but finally she remembered one day! By then only 3 birds were left since the other ones had already flown away.

Here's another picture of them from the front.

It was pretty lucky that Owner Girl remembered her camera that day cuz the next day when she got to work they were all gone! She still sees them sometimes around in the trees though!

Stop back tomorrow to see some tan & black things for True Colors Thursday! And hopefully we will have some pics of Zoe's birthday celebrations and some new pics of me soon!

The Graduate

Hello Friends!
Here are today's Bingo Numbers:
35 . . 27 . . 62

Sorry we were not around at all this weekend. Owner Girl has been sick with allergies and/or some kind of cold. We have missed our Pets of the Week post 3 weeks in a row now because of computer problems, sickies and having a hard time getting approval to post the look-a-likes we find. We are searching hard this week and hopefully will have a great post for you guys this Saturday!

In other news, Owner Girl's little sister, Zoe graduated from pre-school last week!
Congratulations Zoe! Here she is with her diploma!

And she got a purple balloon to take home with her!

After her graduation, she came over to our house for lunch and a little photo shoot!

She had on a pretty polka dot dress!

She even posed for a picture with me!

Don't we both look soooo happy?!

AND today (6/15) is Zoe's Birthday!
We will post about some of the birthday celebrations later this week!

True Colors Thursday - Ivory/Cream

Hello Friends!
Here are today's Bingo numbers:
37 . . 40 . . 68

It's time for True Colors Thursday! I missed out on last week cuz Owner Girl's laptop was sick but I am back this week for Ivory or Cream!

It was pretty tough finding Ivory colored things at my house!

And the window blinds are a creamy Ivory color!

My bones and rawhide chews are sort of an Ivory shade!

Here I am enjoying one of the Ivory chews!

Would you believe that I don't have an Ivory collar?! Owner Girl better get to work on that right away and she should probably make sure we are better prepared for next week too!

Blue is the host of this meme. Stop by her blog and let her know if you want to play too!
Next Week's color is BLACK & TAN TOGETHER!

The Walk in the Woods

Hello Friends!

Here are today's Bingo Numbers:
63 . . 6 . . 58

Since the vet prescribed "less treats and more walkies" for my less than girlish figure, The Owners decided to take me on a nice long walk through the woods behind our house.

I was a great adventure dog and led the way through brush!

We came across a nice little stream.

And we saw this broken tree and lots of rocks.

There was a bunch of this white fuzzy stuff all over the place. It made Owner Girl go "ACHHOOOOOO!" like a billion times!

Here I am walking with Owner Boy and his lil bro Chad. And there they are with their "walking sticks".

Here I am leading the way down the trail. See those pretty flowers next to me?

We saw lots and lots of them!

Here is part of the trail we were on. It looked kinda cool with all that white fluffy stuff!

Here I am on the way home. I was one tired dog and ready for a nice cold drink of water and a nap.

I guess this exercise stuff isn't too bad! I love to explore!
