ARGH

Sorry pals....

We are having technical difficulties, as we got a new computer. (Rah Rah). But, we are switching from a PC to a Mac, and our mother is having difficulties with the change.....

We should be back up and operational in the next day or so.

Lately.......

Hi Everydoggie bloggier,

Again, we have been absent from blogging and visiting too many of our buddies blogs. Not only has Mom been busy and hasn't let us blog, but Blogger has been very unfriendly to us! We try to post, and it stalls.... we try to visit sites and the pages don't load. So, anyway.... enough of our troubles with the Internet!

As you all know, last week was Zorra's barkday. Well, Mom made a cake for her. She said that we would have a pawty after she and Sam came back from Rally class. When Mom returned she went to the cake and found this.......



Two pieces were missing. Luckily, she didn't think that Zorra and I had gotten into it early! Whew, huh. We get in trouble enough! After a little thinking, Mom came to the conclusion that Grandpa had swiped a couple pieces, not realizing it was Zorra's barkday cake! We never told him because we wouldn't want him to feel bad. We just wonder what he thought of a pup-friendly cake! BOL. You know what, he sorta liked it.

Well, we LOVED it. Mom didn't get to write on it or nothing, but we all sang Happy Barkday and wished Zorra many more. Then, we all gobbled it up. Boy, it was good. Now we know why Grandpa took some!

After Pawty

Whew... we just flew in and man, did we have a GREAT time!!!

After we left the pawty, we decided to go do some site seeing. Unfortunately, we let Sam drive....

Here we are flying out of Dreamingspires.....



WATCHOUT!! Sam almost took out the spire!!! I think he had one too many with the boys!! We decided that we had enough time to take a quick tour of London before we had to head home. We have agility class on Monday, and Mom will NOT be happy if we miss.

Step on it SAM!

OH no.... Sam can't read very well, and we landed right on top of Big Ben!! Yikes. Way to go, Idiot boy. WEll, this looks like a good parking space, so let's grab a bus and see the sites from below.




So, we went and got on the doubledecker bus! WE loved seeing the sites of London!!



We were just getting ready to find Jackson, Eric, and Ben the Rottie, (and Nana England, Father Unit's mum) but we saw some commotion around the VW. I guess they didn't think it was a good idea to park it up there. Anway, we snuck up there and took off. BUt, this fellow kept following us... we thought we were going to get thrown in the Tower of London for sure!!!



I think we took a wrong turn, because we ended up in Paddington Station. Sam really needs to learn how to read the GPS unit. He won't let us help, because HE wants to drive. You know how terriers can be.



Anyway, it was getting late and we had to get home, so we will stop by our pals next time. It was already getting dark. We said good-bye to London, Dreamingspires, and had great memories of the Pawty and all our pals.



We sure hope we get invited again, sometime. Meanwhile, I am making Sam take a crash course in GPS reading!!!

Off to Blue and Snowball's Birth/Barkday Pawty

We are off to the big Pawty. Zorra tuned up the VW and installed even more "green friendly" devices to make our journey safe for both us, and the environment.

I put the VW on autopilot and we are all going to rest to be sure we are in tip-top shape to meet our friends.


The trunk is filled with birth/bark day presents!



We even remembered to bring the barkday cards!

For Blue:



For Snowball:



We are so excited to see our friends and have a great time at the Pawty!!

Calling all Tollers??

Hi Bloggerland,

Now, everydog knows that I love all my DWB pals. We have a lot of pup friends. But, I was sniffing around DWB looking for any other Tollers or, our full name Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers. I could not find any? So I'm calling out.....



Are there any others out there in DWB? Am I the only one? I'm off to search.....



If anydog sniffs out another Toller on DWB, bark me up.

Tired, tired, tired

Hello dear pals....



As you can see, I am quite tired. However, have no fear. I am resting up today. I had a terrierific time over the weekend at the agility trial, camping, being with my friends, running amuck in the ring, etc., etc.

Katherine did quite well this weekend getting qualifying runs, bossing everyone around, and having a grand time. Zorra was a bit nervous and only had one qualifying run, but she tried very hard. She will give it the old college try and again, will attempt to overcome her stage fright.

I, as you know, am an outstanding agility star. I met up with my WFT buddies Riley and Ralph. We all met secretly and decided that it was Wild WFT weekend, and none of us would do anything our moms said, and we would all "do our business in the ring." Now, I was not sure if Riley and Ralph would actually "do their business" as they are older and more experienced that I. But, they said that I could be nervous at a new place and they wanted me to fit right in! And, when it came their time to run at various points, they promptly lifted legs in salute.

Of course, in my first run, I was distracted and didn't like what another dog had said in a pee-mail, so I went right over with my response. I heard my mother scream SAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMM NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. But, I needed to send my response right away and lifted my leg as an exclamation point! I absolutely told that other dog off!!! I was immediately scooped up by my mother, and another lady came over with a spray bottle and "tried" to erase what I had just sent. Ha. Try it lady. You are unsuccessful! My response to the first miscreant's pee-mail is still there.

In another run, I was stretching my legs as I sailed around the ring, until I noticed to dog chaps sitting away from the ring, but close enough for me to see them. I immediately went over and asked their advice on how I should properly run the course, but their mother was trying to put an end to our conversation. I stood there until I heard my mother coming up behind me. Then, I promptly turned and ran back to the course. I decided to humor her, and do a few obstacles. Of course, that pleased her feeble mind and she seemed happy, for a change, with my performance.

We stayed in this nice camper, and did not have to spend a cold, rainy day and night huddled together in our tent. The wind was so wicked on Friday and Saturday, that I am sure Mother would not have put it up properly, and we would have ended up who knows where, all a mass of legs, dogs, arms, and tent.

But, our Auntie Sharon, who is also our agility instructor, insisted that we stay in her camper with her for the weekend. Oh, I was so pleased. We were warm, dry, and happy all weekend. I will try to post more about our camping later this week.

Now, we all must prepare the VW for our trip to Blue;s and Snowball's birthday bash!

New Pals, agility, and an AWARD

Hi Everyone,

We wanted to introduce you to 2 new pals we made recently. The first one we met through our hooman pal, Blue. His name is Hero and you can visit him here. He's a nice pup and is new to DWB, so pop on over and give him a sniff.

Our other new friend is Stanislaw. Go walk by his site and see what he is up to.

We are going camping this weekend, and Zorra is glad. Do you know why? Because we are going with our Auntie Sharon who has a CAMPER, and we won't have to sleep in the tent. Now, I do enjoy roughing it, but Zorra DOES NOT. She hates camping and prefers the finer things... like a bed... a roof... and more than a few millimeters of plastic between the outside world and herself.

We are going to a CPE trial in Dayton, OH. Mother finally agreed that I can participate in more than one event. I shall show everyone my expertise and technique that I have refined over the last few weeks. Oh, will they be in awe!

And, thanks to all you who voted for us in the cool site of the day. We were the Cool Site of the Month for February!



Now, I must go oversee the packing of our van and supplies. I am certain mother will forget something vital, like food, stuffies, treats.... Of course, she can forget Katherine, and I would not cry. BOL.

Hey, be a pal! Sign our guest book. We like to see where everyone is from!
