Let me know what you think of it, I'd be interested in your opinions.

Two Great Days

Two days in a row Mom and I got to go walking in my favorite dog park, the one we always go to.

On Sunday while Mom was in church I waited in the back of the truck and enjoyed watching the world go by. Then our old friend Ron came by and petted me then waited to talk to Mom. She invited him to come with us to the dog park and he said yes. We had a really great walk and even went across the creek and out into the woods beyond. While there I met a new friend who I like a LOT. He's a Great Pyrenees and I think his Mom called him Wilfred or something like that. We were too busy playing for me to remember for sure. We ran and ran together and had so much fun. I missed him when we each had to go, but I did have fun walking with Mom & Ron and playing with other dogs there.

On Monday Mom went to an appointment then we went to the dog park again. We saw some dogs and peeps we know, so we walked with them 2 times around the park, but not out in the woods across the creek this time. I got to see my Great Pyrenees friend again and play a bit again. He's very handsome. I hope we see him again and that Mom has her camera with her so she can take piktures of us, maybe even a video cuz that would be real cool.

After the dog park Monday, we went to Mom's Toastmasters meeting. I waited in the truck. Suddenly clouds came flying up and rained all over the place. This did not make me happy as I didn't want to get wet, but the window was open so I crawled thru it into the cab. I know I'm not 'sposed to do that, but I do it sometimes anyway. When Mom came out she wasn't mad to find me in the cab and instead of making me get back into the back she let me stay in the cab, but not in the front on the seats, she make me stay in the extended part of the cab, behind the seats. I was happy!!! I got to be near Mom while she drove, and I got to stay dry too.

I'm always looking for ways to make more money, to earn more doggy cookies, so I was interested to read this opportunity that was sent my way today.

Manic Monday - Kit

Hi. Welcome to Reba's Run and to

Dogic Monday.

The word Mr. Mo (a.k.a. Not The Mama) at It's A Blog Eat Blog World chose for us to blog about this week is kit.

Earlier this year, Mom took me on a trip to the Kootenays to visit our good friend Cam and to meet Kai (she lived there then, but moved away now) and Claire (she came all the way from Scotland to visit friends and we got to meet her while she was here). It was so wonderful and I had sooooo much fun. I hope we go on lots more trips together like that.

When we travel, Mom takes some suit cases with her "stuff" in 'em. Well, I need a kit of stuff too. What kind of kit does a dawg need, you ask? Well, let me tell you then:

Reba's Kit Contents:
- dawg food (this can be kibble or raw meet & veggies... I like the raw better)
- dishes: 1 fur my food & 1 fur my water, usually we use small buckets
- halti & leash ... just in case we go somewhere that I can't run free. In the Kootenays we walked downtown to the car show on main street and we walked in the Nelson Park with Claire when we was there. I needed to wear my "safety gear" there. We also had a real nice long walk along the banks of Kootenay River and I was able to run free there. By the way, if you don't know, a halti is like a horses halter, but it's smaller to fit a dawg's head.
- brush
- plastic bags for pickin' up my poops
- a whole bunch 'a doggy cookies!!!!

Yup, we gotta take the whole kit 'n caboodle. (Hey, what's a caboodle?)

Oh ya, guess I should tell you.... I like chasing my "brother". He's really Mom's kitty cat and it's fun to chase him cuz he runs. Sometimes he doesn't run so I don't dare bug him then cuz he's got sharp clawzes.

Enjoy your Manic Monday!

Friday's Feast - #9

What is your favorite type of art?

Landscaping is an art form and I, as a dog, like landscaping. I love to run and play on the grass, to get my feet and legs wet in the "water feature" and to look pretty beside the flowers.

When was the last time you got a free lunch (or breakfast or dinner)? Who paid for it?

I get free meals every day. My Mom pays for them. That was part of the agreement when she adopted me when I was a 7 week old puppy. I also get a doggy cookie before bed every night. And lots of love and attention every day too.

On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, how emotional are you?

I'm very emotional... very excitable. I get very excited at the least little thing, and I get upset if I think anything is a threat to Mom. But most of the time I smile lots and love to go get people to pet me, even if I don't know them. So maybe a 9 or 10.

Main Course
Approximately how long do you spend each day responding to emails?

None. I have my blog but I don't bother with an email account or address... I used one of Mom's for the sign up of my bloggy.

To what temperature do you usually set your home’s thermostat?

I don't. I wear my big fur coat 24/7. I like being in the house with Mom where it is warm, though.

Trusted Places

Earning Dog Cookies
It is very important to all of us to have trusted places to go. For dogs it's a safe place to lay and chew a bone, but for people it's a place to eat, drink. or hang out with friends. We even need a trusted place where we can find a list of trusted places like restaurants, bars, hotels, shopping spots and other places. You can tell of your favorite places to go so others can read about it. If you live in London, I know a trusted place where you can get a list of good London restaurants.

Blogging Star Award

Blogging Star Award for new blogging friends

I'm a Blogging Star!

Whoof, woof!! I'm so excited! This is my first award for anything! Vic Grace from Cariboo Ponderer gave me this award. This award originated from Skittles' Place.

This award is for bloggers who shine their light throughout the Blogosphere. Some do it with humour, others with creativity, and others with their kind and thoughtful natures. We all know more than a few of them so why not give them some recognition?

I'm suppose to pass this award on to five other bloggers that I feel are a "Blogging Star".

I will let you know who I pass it on to real soon... I gotta go chew my bone until I figure this out. Arf, bark! Mom's not feelin' good as usual, so she's tryin' to rest ... so I'm goin' to be outside awhile.

Holiday Offers

Earning Dog Cookies
Where would you like to go for a holiday? I don't mean where could you go with the budget you have, but where would you love to go if you had lots of money? Or if you got really good deals on your flight, hotels and car rentals? Be is a short break, maybe weekend breaks or even longer? How about Paris? Rome? Barcelona? Or maybe you'd prefer Venice? Prague? How about Vienna? Or Nice! I think Nice would be nice, lol.

I've often thought how great it woul be to go to Venice. I'd love to ride in gondolas, to look out my hotel room window down onto the canals with the gondolas floating down them, to hear the singing of the Italian men. I'd love to walk along the streets of the city and across the bridges I've seen in pictures. Would I want to do this alone? No way. With a family member or good friend? Well, better than alone, but not quite what I had in mind. This seems like somewhere to go with a romantic partner.

Dialaflight is a leading independent UK travel company offering flights, hotels & travel ideas worldwide for your weekend breaks, short breaks or city breaks.

Friday's Feast #8

When was the last time you visited a hospital?

Never ever ever. I'm a real healthy dawg!

On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highest, how ambitious are you?

Very. I love going to the dawg park and running around. When I don't do this for awhile I get so I bounce off walls and knock over furniture a lot.

Make a sentence using the letters of a body part. (Example: (mouth) My other ukelele tings healthily.)

Arf, Reba's Mom's! or Let Egos Go! haha

Main Course
If you were to start a club, what would the subject matter be, and what would you name it?

It would be a dog cookie club where hoomans and dogs all come to eat cookies and drink tea/coffee/water. I'd call it Whoof Your Cookies!

What color is the carpet/flooring in your home?

I have no carpet in my dog house, but the carpet in Mom's house is peach... or was at one time, hehe Whoof!

Check out Fridays' Feast... see more participants for this week.

Please leave me your Barks, Woofs, Licks and other signs of love.
Your words brighten my day.


Earning Dog Cookies
Now that I've started writing ads to put on my blog I am becoming much more aware of what this money stuff is all about. It's important to save money wherever you can so you can pay for what you need and for your treats. This is fall so soon it will be Thanksgiving, Halloween, then Christmas and all these holidays cost humans money. Maybe I'll even buy some gifts this year as I'll now have my own money too.

Christmas List:
Shadow (cat) - a can of tuna or a toy with a coupon from Pet Smart
Grace Hawk (rabbit) - a carrot or something with a Pet Food Direct coupon
All 5 chinchillas - peanuts
The 3 budgies - millet
Mom - feather pillows (hmmmm... here chickens)
Oh ya, better get the chickens something too, maybe scarves. I wonder if I can find good coupons for these too. I'll look at

PPP issues

I did my first PPP op today and I was so proud of me... hey, $5 is about 1/3 of a bag of dog food, or a good raw steak, or 1/3 bag of doggy cookies. But then I went to submit it to PPP and it was refused cuz it was from my blog instead of Mom's blog. Now we don't know how to "switch" it. If any of you out there have 2 or more blogs working for PPP could you please let me know how this works? Then I can tell Mom and we can work together to earn money to feed me better. Thanks to you for your help. And thanks to Auntie Bee for her nice words to me.

Mom wrote to Kai at The Buzz Queen and asked her... then she thought to send a ticket to PPP and ask them. Both answered this morning with the same answer, haha. Now we both feels a bit sheepish (heehee, arf) cuz it was right in front of our eyez. We must've been real tired that late at night. :o) So now this will be under the ad instead of on top of it cuz I gotta change the date on the ad so I can claim it and get paid for it. Yip, yip, yip-eeeeee.

Warm The Globe Thru Friendship

Warm The Globe Through Friendship

Here is what Vic from Cariboo Ponderer came up with:
A good way for a blog to get established is to have backlinks. So at A Little Piece of Me came up with the idea of

All you have to do is copy this post with the list of links below and add your link at the end. As others do the same we get the word out about a lot of great blogs. Eventually we may circumnavigate the globe. A lot of my visitors and certainly those on my sidebar are great bloggers, with great blogs, so click read more, copy the post and add your link! That’s it, then just sit back, and watch the links grow, over time.

Oh well, we'll get it all up to snuff in time and earn lots and lots of raw food and doggy cookies.

Wish me luck!

Manic Monday - Clue

Hi. Welcome to Reba's Run and to

Dogic Monday.

The word Mr. Mo (a.k.a. Not The Mama) at It's A Blog Eat Blog World chose for us to blog about this week is clue.

It’s Saturday evening as I write this and awhile ago Mom let me inside and after I ate my dinner I went into the living room. I found that Mom was doing some sewing… she was working on a cushion just for me! She had a bed spread that used to be on her bed but for a long time now I’ve been using it for my bed, well she cut that up into pieces to make my cushion… the mattress for my new bed. So she sewed up a big bag and was stuffing it with sheep’s fleece and I got so excited and happy… it was just incredible. So then I start jumping around and knocking Mom around cuz I was so excited and happy, and I was starting to bounce off walls and furniture and stuff and knocking Mom around and such and then suddenly Mom quit working and put the cushion down and it’s not even finished yet. I don’t get it. I don’t have a clue why she didn’t pet me and hold me down with both hands and still work on my new bed too all at the same time I mean ya know I needed to be given lots of love and attention and I was real excited and I wanted my new bed right away and I want to go to bed on my new bed but now it’s not going to get done and I’m so sad and bummed out… so I’m going to sleep. Gnight!

PS. If you have a please give it to me…. Just leave it for me in the comment part of my bloggy… k! Kewl!

Enjoy your Manic Monday!

Wow... I put "stuff" on my bloggy today... enough so I gots to tell you all to scroll down for Friday's Feast!

A Meme Thingy

A meme that I liberated from One Gal Musing. I was there for Friday's Feast and dragged this home with me. Hope you like it.

My house is a small one room house, just big enough for me. It's in a fenced yard beside Mom's house. I am going to use Mom's house for the answers to this meme cuz I spend more time in there now than I do in my own house.

What kind of soap is in your bathtub right now? She's got a bar soap that she covered with real sheep's wool so it's got it's own scrubbing effect... and she also has some shower gel too.

Do you have any watermelon in your refrigerator? Nope, but there's one in the sink.

What would you change about your living room? Nothing... but Mom wants to clean it up. She also wants to put new flooring in here and new furniture.

Are the dishes in your dishwasher clean or dirty? The only dishwasher we have is Mom... well, I like washing dishes, but Mom always washes them again after I finish. There's lots of dirty dishes waiting for Mom.

What is in your fridge? Mom won't let me go into the fridge to see... and she won't get off the couch just now to go look either, but said there's stuff like: corn on the cob, tomatoes, bread, milk, ketchup, mustard, jam, pickles, eggs, and a whole bunch of other stuff.

White or wheat bread? Only whole grain breads for Mom.

What is on top of your refrigerator? There's a vase with 2 bamboo plants in water, a vase with some other plants rooting in water, and some other odds and ends stuff. I can't see what cuz it's hard for a dawg to see the top of the frig.

What color or design is on your shower curtain? Nothing... it's clean plastic.

How many plants are in your home? Oh ya.... give me a hard question.... it's more than my toes on all 4 feet.

Is your bed made right now? Nope

Comet or Soft Scrub? Huh? Oh, Mom says Comet.

Is your closet organized? Nope. Mom says there's more to life than housework,.

Can you describe your flashlight? I don't got a flashlight... but Mom has one dark gray with yellow on it, and a small shiny blue one too.

Do you drink out of glass or plastic most of the time at home? A plastic bucket at home and in the truck. I like drinking out of the creek at the dog park.

Do you have iced tea made in a pitcher right now? Dawgs just drink water.

If you have a garage, is it cluttered? Mom has a carport, guess that would count. Yup, it's cluttered. There's almost 3 1/2 tons of pellets for our heat this winter... and lots of sheep fleeces waiting for Mom to process them, and a bunch of other stuff too.

Curtains or blinds? Curtains

How many pillows do you sleep with? None. I sleep on blankets on the floor. I'm still waiting for Mom to make me a big cushion to sleep on, filled with sheep fleece so it's nice and comfy for me.

Do you sleep with any lights on at night? Nope. Mom turns 'em all off.

How often do you vacuum? Dawgs don't vacuum, silly rabbit!

Standard toothbrush or electric? Neither. Good luck brushing my teeth, I'm an excitable rottweiler, heehee. But my teeth get a good scraping when I eat doggy cookies and kibbles. They are very clean teeth.

What color is your toothbrush? re-read the last answer.

Do you have a welcome mat on your front porch? Nope

What is in your oven right now? A chicken... but Mom lets him out every day for exercise while she cleans the oven. (just kidding, but wouldn't surprise me around here)

Is there anything under your bed? Yes. I don't know what it is but it makes a lump, but I don't mind it.

Chore you hate doing the most? Cleaning myself I guess... that's the only chore I do except cleaning the kitchen floor and I like doing that.

What retro items are in your home? What's a retro item? Oh, Mom said it's old stuff.... there's lots of old stuff here, too much for a dawg to type about.

Do you have a separate room that you use as an office? No. Dawgs don't need an office.

How many mirrors are in your home? What's a mirror? Must be a hooman thing.

Do you have any hidden emergency money around your home? Nope... but there's a 8Kg bag of doggy cookies beside the big bag of dog food. Does that count?

What color are your walls? My walls are woodgrain on the inside and yellow on the outside. Mom's walls are all sorts of different colors, some wallpaper and some paint.

Do you keep any kind of protection weapons in your home? Just me. Remember, I'm a rottweiler!

What does your home smell like right now? All sorts of critters... and food.

Favorite candle scent? Huh? What's a candle scent? What's a candle?

What kind of pickles (if any) are in your refrigerator right now? I think Mom mostly likes dills, but remember... I'm a dawg and dawgs don't care about pickles.

What color is your favorite Bible? Mom's got some of them books, but I don't have one myself.

Ever been on your roof? Yes, sometimes when there's coyotes or somethin' in the hills above where we live I like to stand with my feet on my roof and bark at them. But I never get all the way up there... why would I want to?

Do you own a stereo? No, silly rabbit, I'm a dawg and dawgs don't give a rat's behind about stereos.

How many TVs do you have? None. Not even one!! But Mom has 3 of 'em.

How many house phones? Ummmm.... she has 3 if you count the fax machine too, but she hasn't used if lately cuz the chinchillas got out and ate all the phone cords and Mom hasn't replaced the one to the fax yet... heehee.

Do you have a housekeeper? Yup, of course I do! I call her Mom! She hasn't done much lately though.

What style do you decorate in? Early doggy... or is that modern doggy? Oh well... doggy style anyway. (why are you laughing?)

Do you like solid colors in furniture or prints? Again... I'm a dawg and dawgs don't give a rats asssssssssssso, that's a good question... hee heee. Hi Mom :o)

Is there a smoke detector in your home? No, but Mom has one in the hallway by her/our bedroom.

In case of fire, what are the items in your house which you’d grab if you only could make one quick trip? I'd grab my doggy butt and run!!

Now, I'm gonna put a tag on some of you so you can play with me. I think 4 should be about right. I hope they all play along. I choose:
Jersey - The Furry Diva
Daisy The Curly Cat
Not The Mama, Jazper, Daphne, Spooker, Chloe and all the kitty guests - Purrchance To Dream
Bobby & the Bunch - Cats ~ Goats ~ Quotes

My New Job

Well, Mom's gone and done it. She signed my bloggy up to work for PayPerPost. Yup, she's puttin' me to work so I can earn money for my own doggy diet. I likes eating RAW food, and Mom says it's much healthier for me, but also much more costly than my regular food. It also takes more time to prepare it for me to eat, but Mom is willing to do that extra work for me if I can earn the money to buy raw meat for me.

So far my bloggy doesn't have much for page ranks, but Mom's gonna have to fix that for me. She's not sure where to get more energy and time to do a second blog, but will manage it somehow I'm sure.

Make sure to come back often and link to my bloggy so it will help to improve my page ranks and such. I'm going to start putting some more interesting stuff here too, to give everyone a reason to come more often... well, if you like dawgs anyway.
