Today & 2 months from Today


Today I've been laying around sleeping on the living room floor all day. I don't like going outside away from Mom, so when she tries to put me out I lay on the floor and look pathetic and pitiful. If Mom doesn't force me to go out I wait as long as I can until I really really have to go potty, then I make Mom get up from the computer and run to the door to let me out, arf, arf, arf. Mom was planning to take me to the dog park today, but the time is flying by so fast and she has so much work to do here that it doesn't look good for making it to the dog park. Dang! Mom leaves tomorrow to go away fur the weekend and I don't like that, so I'm not a happy puppy over that, but I know I will survive and I know Mom will be back home as soon as she can be. She's going to visit a friend of hers and to get our truck worked on for way more bags of doggy cookies (I think she calls it money) than what it would be here, so that's a good thing. We have to maintain our truck so we can go to the dog park and the grocery stores.

December 14 is my Burfday. I'll be 9 years old. I wonder what Mom will get me fur my burfday present.

Did you know that 2 months from today is Christmas Day?? I wonder what Mom will get me fur my Christmas present. She better get shoppin'!

By The Way..... the other day I got Mom to take videos woof her camera at the dog park. The didn't turn out too good, blurry when she moved the camera, but I'll post a couple of 'em to give you an idea what it's like there.

This is me playing at the entrance to the park. I forget the name of the white dog I'm playin' woof. We don't go so much by names all the time, we sniff buts, not shake hands, arf, arf, arf.

video


These take a reeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalllly long time to load here, so Mom thinks she needs to reboot this 'puter and to not have so much open at one time when workin' woof videos. Sooooo I'm putin' this up fur you fur now and will put more up later. Whoof!

Storage Solutions

Earning Dog Cookies
Boy, do we ever have lots of 'stuff' around here that needs proper storage. There's my dog food, and dog cookies, then I guess my bones and toys could use a place during the day when I'm outside and not using 'em. With all the other critters in this house there's lots more too. Three budgie birds have food, gravel and miscellaneous other things for their cages. Five chinchillas & a rabbit: food, alfalfa cubes, shavings for their houses, and various treats. The cat has his food in a big tin can, so that's covered, but could use something nicer to keep his litter in. All this 'stuff' and we haven't even talked about all that our hooman 'Mom' has that needs to be put away better.

Yup, we need storage solutions. CarGuyGarage has more than 1,000 products to make the garage another room in your house. I wonder if they have some of those tip out bins like some hoomans keep flour in. We could use a bunch of them in our house, and some people could keep cat litter in them in the garage for oil spill cleanups. Now there's a great idea!

Replys to Woofless Wednesday Comments

Helping to Feed Critters, one click at a time.


With each Set of Save a Stray Cat Mugs purchased, The Animal Rescue Site will fund 14.0 bowls of food for animals living in sanctuaries and shelters.

If you like to look out the window and watch the world go by, then you'll love our creamy white Save a Stray Cat Mugs, perfect for a contemplative cup with company! Flowers and felines are framed above this window-gazing kitten's head. The back of the mug shows the back of the same window-gazing kitty, looking out into a cloud-studded sky.

Our signature phrase, "Save a Stray. Click Every Day", together with a purple paw print and our web address, appears in between. A simple reminder that a few seconds a day can help cats not fortunate enough to have homes of their own yet.

Available in Set of 2 for you and a cat loving friend, or as a Set of 4, for a full family of feline fanciers. Both come in your choice of standard 11 oz. mugs (2 for $14.95, 4 for $24.95), measuring 3.75" T x 3.25" W (9.5 cm x 8.2 cm), or tall 16 oz. "latte" mugs (2 for $15.95, or 4 for $25.95), measuring 6" T x 3.25" dia. (17.8 cm x 8.3 cm).


Note: this is not a paid post. It is a good deed for the day to help animals less fortunate than I am.

Manic Monday - Frost

Welcome to my version of
Manic Monday


The word my man-ic friend 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:

Glitter Text custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and more - ImageChef.com


At Alta Vista Images I found:


Hoar Frost



Frost parked on a no parking sign


a 'frosty' horse


I think this is hoar frost too, all over the bridge and the trees. I love this pikture!



Robert Lee Frost (March 26, 1874 – January 29, 1963) was an American poet. His work frequently used themes from rural life in New England, using the setting to examine complex social and philosophical themes. A popular and often-quoted poet, Frost was honored frequently during his lifetime, receiving four Pulitzer Prizes.
From Wikipedia


October


O hushed October morning mild,
Thy leaves have ripened to the fall;
Tomorrow's wind, if it be wild,
Should waste them all.
The crows above the forest call;
Tomorrow they may form and go.
O hushed October morning mild,
Begin the hours of this day slow.
Make the day seem to us less brief.
Hearts not averse to being beguiled,
Beguile us in the way you know.
Release one leaf at break of day;
At noon release another leaf;
one from our trees, one far away.
Retard the sun with gentle mist;
Enchant the land with amethyst.
Slow, slow!
For the grapes' sake, if the were all,
Whose leaves already are burnt with frost,
Whose clustered fruit must else be lost--
For the grapes' sake along the all.

~ by Robert Frost

Save Money With Coupons

Earning Dog Cookies
I admit that dog's don't usually know anything about saving money, but they don't usually blog either. I do both. I know that in order for me to have dog food and dog cookies we need to save money on other things Mom buys, just to make our ends meet. One way I can see to help with saving money when you shop online is to use Coupons. Being a blogger, I know that all bloggers love computers and want newer and better ones, and accessories to go with them, so why not check out the Dell coupons. Food... who doesn't like food? I love it and so does Mom. We eat it every day. If you like cooking for your family you might like the coupons for deals at Cooking.com.

Comment Moderation

Hello all my dear internet friends and guests. You will notice when you leave your comments that I have resorted to comment moderation... no weird letter combinations for you to type in, but you will not see your comments until after I read them and allow them to be shown. By the same token, you will not see any spam comments here again.

Unfortunately some people, hiding behind anonymous comments or blocking their blogs to anyone they have not authorized, have been leaving spam on my blog. I will not allow this on my blog!!

These people obviously do not really believe in what they are spamming us with or they would leave their names and links where they can be contacted. Anyone who does not do this does not stand behind or have the conviction of what they are selling or preaching. I feel sorry for this kind of person that feels they must spam others with a lot of 'crap'!


This comment moderation should cause no one any inconvenience except the spammers. I wish you all a wonderful day.

When was the last time you were surprised?

About 5 minutes ago. I was laying on the floor, kinda under the footstool part of Mom's recliner. I was sound asleep when Mom decided to get up for somethin'. She didn't know I was there and her foot thingy whacked me real good. That was a Surprise!

Soup
Fill in the blanks: My eyes are ________, but I wish they were __________.

My eyes are brown, but I wish they were brown. I like blue eyes, but not on my cuz I'm a rottweiler and we don't gotz blue eyes.

Salad
If you were a Beanie Baby, what would you look like and what would your name be?

I'd look like a TY rottweiler dawg beanie baby.... and my name would be Reba Rottenweiler.

Main Course
Name two things you consistently do that you consider to be healthy habits.

I lick myself clean like a good dawg... and I drink nothing but water.

Dessert
What brand of toothpaste are you using these days? Do you like it? Why or why not?

BONZ. Well, it's not really a tooth paste, but chewing on bones and on my doggy cookies helps to keep my teeth clean and looking good. I've never been to the vet to get teeth cleaned, but peoples that see my teeth say they're good and clean.

A Thank You and An Apology

First I want to thank Vic Grace (Cariboo Ponderer) for this honor, she gave me this beautiful award, the very first one I got fur my dog blog. Second I apologize to Vic for taking so long to put it up. I was gonna think who to send it to then I got chewing bones and furgot all about blogging. Sheeeesh!

This award is for bloggers who shine their light throughout the Blogoshere. Some do it with humor, 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?

Here's what to do if you receive this:
  • Proudly display it on your blog along with a link to who gave it to you.
  • Mention that it originated at Skittles' Place so she can follow it's journey.
  • Pass it on to any blogger(s) you think should have it.

Claire @ Claire's Garden. I love all the pretty pictures she posts of horses and flowers and yummy looking veggies.
Gattina @ Writer Cramps. I love humor.
Not The Mama & all the kitty cats over at Purrrchance To Dream. Always a cool place to visit.

Awarded and Awarding


I won an award!!! How cool is that!





My furry friend Jersey the Furry Diva was nice enough to give me this award. She's so cool.




Receiving this award makes me a very proud and happy rottweiler.... and it reminded me that Vic Grace (Cariboo Ponderer) also gave me an award awhile back. I didn't get it posted cuz I had to have time to think who to send it on to, and then I forgot about it cuz I have lots of bones to chew and it's a big job to chew them all and can be hard even to decide which one to chew on which day. Know what I mean? Anyway, guess I better find that award and get it up real soon... like right after my assistant feeds the chickens in the morning so she can type it up fur me!


Fur now, I will send this nice bloggy award tooooooo - bones... mmmmm, bones. Oh, wait a minute... no bones 'til I gets this done... bones.....

Gracie & Dylan... the big Danes over at Us Danes & Our Family.
Dragonheart, the cute little hairless cat at Dragonheart's Domain. I hope you feels better soon.
Travis at Trav's Thoughts.
Vic Grace living up in the middle of nowhere as the Cariboo Ponderer.

Now this pup needs a nap. I gonna go outside fur a pee, then go to my comfy bed Mom made me. I wanted to give this award to Mom at I Was Born2Cree8, but that could be nepo... neppo.... oh drat, that could be thought to be bad cuz she's my assistant too and types this bloggy fur me. So she'll just have to wait 'til someone else gives it to her.

Night all. Hope you like yur awards.

Home Financing

If you own your own home, you likely know a fair bit about mortgages, and about home loans. Those looking at buying their first home may find all the talk about mortgage rates and getting their first home loan quite confusing. Mortgage refinance can even be confusing if you don't have adequate knowledge on your side. That is why you should always do your research, talk to the folks that know, and can give you the information you need.

Ultimate Paintball, Ultimate Fun

Earning Dog Cookies

It's been years since Mom shot a rifle, but from what I hear, she was deadly with them. Aim, fire, dead on hit. She has often thought about how much fun it would be to play paintball. Hunting without actually hurting anyone or anything. Just think how much fun that would be to shoot those paintball guns , and the great competition of the game as well as being good exercise. Aim, fire, SPLAT! Maybe even just ‘shoot up’ a nice piece of board to make an abstract painting… artsy.

Ultimate Paintball sells Tippmann, Spyder, Smart Parts, Dye, Draxxus paintball gear plus many more brands which you can find on their website. Their top selling guns - Tippmann A-5, Tippmann 98 Custom, Smart Parts Ion, and Spyder paintball guns, including the Spyder Pilot ACS.


Ultimate Paintball offers the best prices with free shipping.

Tagged!


I've been tagged! Nope, not with a dog tag for my collar, but with a meme thing for my blog. Vic Grace @ Cariboo Ponderer tagged me. When I went to copy the rules I thought there was something confusing and not right about them, so I went back several blogs, seeing the changes in the name and the rules. So I decided to adopt the old rules and the older name.

Random 8 Meme.

The Rules of this tag:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. List eight (8) random facts about yourself.
3. Tag eight people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).
4. Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving them a comment on their blogs.


8 Random facts about mE.

1- I'm pure breed, but have no papers to prove it.
2- I saved my adopted hooman Mom about $900 by coming to her without papers.
3- I love eating raw meat.
4- I love doggy treats.
5- I have a really shiny black fur coat.
6- I love going for rides in Mom's truck.
7- I'll be 9 hooman years (about 63 dawg years) on my next Barkday, December 14th! And most people that meet me think I'm still just a pup cuz I'm healthy and look great fur my age.
8- I like being a blog dog. I've been asked different times how I type with my big paws. Well, I have my own personal assistant that does the typing for me, but this is still MY blog.

Geee... now to choose 8 people, or animals, to tag. I can do this.

1- Claire at Claire's Garden. Claire & her friend Debra Ann are members of my fan club. We really met in real life when Mom took me to the Kootenay region of BC, and Claire was visiting there from her home in Scotland. Mom says that's a long way away from where we live.
2- Auntie Bee (Empress Bee of the High Sea) @ Muffin53
3- Jersey, the Furry Diva, cuz she did such a good job of the last one I tagged her with.
4- Bobbie & Bunch @ Cats ~ Goats ~ Quotes
5- Crazy Working Mom is one of my Mom's friends, whoof!
6- Shaz & The Danes cuz I haven't seen 'em in awhile.
7- Sparky @ Sparky's Blog I just followed some linkies that took me to meet Sparky and I think we should get to know each other, so I'm taggin' him for this porpoise.
8- Chester @ Of Bones, Balls, Barks & Burps. I sniffed out this dog blog thru a linkie from Sparky's dog blog. I starting to meet lots more dogs online. Woofnderful!!

I hope everyone chooses to join in the fun and do this taggy thing. It's is everyones choice, so you can agree or not. It's fun to do though and it helps to get to know each other better.

Digital Photography & Scrapbooking

Earning Dog Cookies
Important words from my hooman Mom:

I totally love digital photography. I always loved photography, and had a really good SLR camera, but once I didn't have a good paying job I found it expensive to buy film and pay for developing, so took fewer and fewer photos. With my digital camera I can take hundreds of photos, then store them on my computer where I can enjoy them at any time, and much larger than a 4x6 photo. If/when I want to, I can get any of them printed at a reasonably low cost. My photography skills have definitely improved a lot since I got my digital camera and am free to experiment with different techniques.

I currently have a Kodak Easy Share DX6490. It's 4.0 mp with a 10x optical zoom. A friend just got a newer version of this camera with a much higher mp and a 12x optical zoom. I'm green, haha. I want one just like it... or better :o) The zoom is a very important feature to me as I so love taking photos of things far away.


With the zoom, this

becomes this


Wide angle (without zooming)

Zoomed in shows me what 'that' is way over there


This could never have been taken without my zoom lens.


With hundreds of photos on my computer, maybe I should start to think about scrapbook page ideas. What do you think?
