Memories of a little punky puppy

Oh, who am I kidding, my Maddie is still a little punky puppy at heart. I came across these video clips today of the day we brought Maddie home in 2010 and introduced her to her big sister, Izzie. Maddie was about 9 weeks old, and Izzie was about 3.5 years old.

This video footage was all taken within an hour of us bringing Maddie home. As you can see, she made herself right at home with her sisters toys, and they quickly got to playing. Maddie loved to play from day one, and she still plays like a puppy to this day, nearly 4 years later!

Oh yeah, and I deleted the sound, because it was mostly me squeeing and laughing with new puppy enthusiasm (oh, there’s nothing like it!).

Enjoy!

Do supermodels have to be bribed with cheese?

Sometimes my dogs are uber photogenic and actually behave when I want to take their picture.

Then there is the other 99% of the time.

Typically Maddie is my go to dog for taking pictures with products, etc. Izzie doesn’t like having her picture taken. It’s quite possible she might be in the Schnoodle witness protection program, and I’m just not aware.

At any rate. Cheese. You know how photographers say “say cheese” to get people to smile in a photo? Well, with my girls, I just need to say CHEESE, and then back it up with, you know, actual cheese. I wonder if this is what they do with supermodels?

Below is a drawing I was given several years ago when both of my dogs attended a doggie Halloween party at their doggie daycare. For years, I’ve been meaning to take a picture to match the drawing. This week I finally did. Sort of.

As the small amount of cheese I had dwindled, they quickly grew tired of the whole thing, and/or me.

By the way, to follow up on my prior post regarding the EPIC Halloween costume I had planned for Izzie? Well, life happened. I got so busy this weekend with obligations that the materials never left the fabric store bag. I’m sure Izzie is relieved, although I still have the materials, and maybe next year I’ll start the whole thing with more than three days to finish it.

Fresh for all! #FridgeChallenge wrap up

This past week I’ve been sharing insights from my participation in the Freshpet Fridge Challenge. The challenge was established to bring attention to the importance of fresh foods in your dog’s diet. And while my dogs didn’t go without fresh food for the length of this challenge, I did, and let me just say, it really drove home the importance of fresh for all! Take a look.

Human Shaming – because my dogs feel no shame

At some point last year, Dog Shaming pictures became all the rage. You know, a sign held next to your dog proclaiming the bad thing he or she did. We even got in on the fun. But you know what? My dogs kinda feel no shame.

But me? Yeah, my dogs give me that face and oh the shame! So time for a little human shaming.

 Human Shaming   because my dogs feel no shame

Poor Maddie. Running a dog website, she is my go to dog for taking pictures with products (the picture above won us tickets to a local dog show from SeattleMini). Sometimes I have to use certain words to get her enthused. And I don’t always follow up. Err…sometimes I lie to her. Oh the shame.
