Animal Wellness Magazine

Check out my mum's (that's the British version of mom) article which has been published in the June/July issue of Animal Wellness Magazine. It's about eco-friendly ways to dispose of dog poop -- you know, the stuff a lot of people don't like to pick up. A lot of people don't realize just how toxic dog poop is to the environment but my mommy explains all of that in the article.

Mommy always has a bag with her when we go for a walk but many people in our neighborhood don't curb their dogs and...well....I love to eat the stuff so it's always a challenge for mummy to keep me away from it. "Leave It" is a command I'm not fond of but I do it anyway because I'm a well behaved canine (most of the time -- except when I'm counter surfing or rummaging through the trash for leftovers). I've been really good about not eating poop ever since mommy taught me "Leave It" but it doesn't mean I don't like it anymore. ;-)

Anyway, my photo is in Animal Wellness Magazine as well. Actually I was in it last month for their April/May issue and now I'm pictured with my mommy in the June/July issue. So be sure to check out Animal Wellness. It's a great magazine for dogs (and cats) and their humans!

Vote for Me in the Cover Dog Contest

Hi Everyone! I know I haven't written on my blog in a while but I've just been so busy with advanced obedience class, Canine Good Citizen (CGC), agility, local dog events, and entering lots of contests. Oh and I'm beginning to learn Rally-O as well.

I won second place in the Greenies smile contest and I'm told I'm going to be in a future issue of The Bark magazine. I won a tin of Greenies treats but since I'm on a special diet I'm donating it to a local rescue group. I'm also supposed to be in Fido Friendly magazine in the Pupparazi section.

But now I'm going for cover dog for the new magazine, Life+Dog but I need your help.

All you have to do is go to my entry and click on "Vote." Please vote daily through October 15th.

And I would love it if you would help spread the word. Post my contest entry to your Facebook wall, Twitter, and blog. Here's my contest entry website:

The picture is of me in the wildflowers in the Texas Hill Country. I loved that trip and I would love to be a cover dog! Thank you so much for your help!


Hugs and sloppy kisses,

New Year’s Resolutions for dogs

Mommy says I have a couple of bad habits that I should resolve to change in 2010. Me? Bad habits? I thought I was perfect!

So what are my bad habits? I pretend to sniff the grass while walking with my parents and then I speedily eat any poop I can find on the ground. OK, this is not entirely my fault. After all, if all dog owners picked up their dog's poop then I wouldn't be so tempted. Right?

My other bad habit? I use my cuteness to manipulate my parents. Shh, don't tell them though because they have no idea.

Do you have a bad habit you'd like to change next year? Click here to read some of the top doggy New Year's Resolutions.

Best wishes for a happy, healthy and safe new year to all of my animal friends!

I Donated Food to the Animal Shelter

Do you remember how I won a gift card to Petco for the Halloween costume contest? Well, in addition to buying myself some treats I bought a huge bag of Wellness dog food for the doggies at the shelter. I went to Petco with mommy, grandpa and grandma. Grandpa held my leash and walked me around the store; well, actually I dragged him around while I searched for food on the floor. Grandma pushed the cart, and mommy looked for goodies.

When we were all done, we drove to the Citizens for Animal Protection (CAP) and donated food. Mommy said it was very busy there so she didn't take me inside. I hope the doggies at CAP enjoy the food and have a very happy new year!

I Went to the Beach

It was a gorgeous day last Sunday so mommy had the brilliant idea of going to Galveston so I could see the beach. It was the first time I had ever been to the beach (that mommy and daddy know of), and I have to say I loved it! I had the time of my life running on the sand.

Galveston has a separate beach where doggies are allowed - isn't that cool? I ran towards the ocean but then it kept coming towards me so I jumped and ran away; then I did it again. I got very wet and sandy but thankfully mommy has a waterproof liner in her car - and she brought a towel.

You can see a video of me enjoying the beach. Sorry for the poor quality; mommy has a cheap pay-as-you-go phone.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Well, you know how I thought I was fat and mommy put me on a diet? Well, after two weeks I think I'm looking pretty thin. I guess it's hard for mommy to find that right balance but the good news is that I lose weight quickly. Mommy is a little jealous of that fact, but shh, don't tell her I said so.

I'm getting one big organic carrot each day along with some other healthy snacks and my Nature's Logic food. One cup is too much and 3/4 cup is too little, so I guess mommy has to find a new measurement all together.

The National Dog Show is on TV after the Macy's Day Parade on Thanksgiving. Are you going to watch it? If you want to learn more about it, click here. And doggies, please be careful on Thanksgiving. There are all sorts of things we can get into that can hurt us. Mommy wants all dog owners to read this article. It's called "How to Keep Your Dog Safe on Thanksgiving." I know we're hard to resist with our cute puppy dog eyes, but you humans have to be extra careful so we don't get sick.

My mommy and daddy are going out for a meal so I guess I'll get my usual; oh well, at least I get to roll the Kong around the floor and look for kibble that mommy and daddy hide around the house.

I'm sorry I haven't been more active with my blog but mommy has been a bit of a computer hog lately. Daddy is hoping to get a second computer so maybe he'll let me share his.

Best wishes for a very happy and safe Thanksgiving! Leave a comment and let me know what you are thankful for. This year, I'm thankful for my parents because they spoil me, and for my new food that helps my tummy and makes my coat shiny.
