Arizona Lurking Fruit Dog

I'd like to introduce you to a new species of animal recently discovered here in Arizona - the Arizona Lurking Fruit Dog. The Arizona Lurking Fruit Dog is easily identified by the traces of recent victims stuck to his face, his steady gaze when fruit has been identified, and rather sticky whiskers.

Do not be alarmed if you meet one of these creatures. The Arizona Lurking Fruit Dog is quite friendly. It is advised however, that you should just hand over your apple and back away...

We has awards!

I've been forgetting to mention this great award we got from both our friends Roo and Erin!

Since we recieved two of these wonderful awards, we will list seven things you may or may not know about Sam and Monty.

First up, Sam!

1. Sam's birthday is October 21, 2002
2. Sam's nicknames include Sammy, Samster, Sammish MacBeth, Little Dude - the list goes on!
3. Sam loves being sang to. He doesn't care what you sing to him, just as long as his name is in the song. The more times you sing his name, the happier he gets!
4. Sam loves being in the craft room with his Mom.
5. Sam failed obedience twice. (He is wishing I hadn't shared this with you!)
6. Sam now has his Canine Good Citizen award! Yay!
7. Sam is the founding dog of our household - he is very much cherished and adored!

All right, now it is Monty's turn!

1. Monty's Gotcha Day is April 22, 2010
2. Monty's nicknames include Monster (when he is very bad!), Montyzoomie, Montycristo - we are still discovering new nicknames everyday!
3. Monty has a theme song - it is The Tigger Song! In order to sing it right to him, you have to replace the word Tigger with Monty!
4. Monty only has one speed, which is as fast as possible!
5. Monty loves toys, especially the ones that make odd noises!
6. If it can fit in Monty's mouth, he will put it there.
7. "Trouble" is Monty's middle name!

Hmmm.... Now I need to share the award... I need to share this with 15 other blogs,

1. Yin and Yang

Monday Doings

Sam wants everyone to know that he didn't escape his bath this weekend. He has been rather depressed about the whole thing - he thought his disguises were perfect! As you know, he has been a faithful follower of Sherlock Holmes for some time now, and Holmes was a master of disguise.

Please no pictures. Sam busy being sad.

I love the shnooter shots!

Don't worry! His sad moments never last long!

I took this picture of Monty enjoying the sunshine this morning. Doesn't he look noble?

...and this is the typical scene around the dinner table. That is Monty on the left, and Sam on the right.

We hope you all have a great week!

Saturday is Bath Day

Today is bath day at our house. While Monty was overjoyed by this news, Sam was a little less enthusiastic. In fact, I haven't seen Sam for a while. I wonder where he is?

I'd better start searching. One thing I noticed is that our house is full of strange dogs. Maybe they've seen Sam?

Look at this strange fellow... I wonder if he is in the Witness Protection Program?

Sam? I don't know who you are talking about!

I thought about asking this guy, but he is tough looking! I had better move along...

Wow! This guy looks really smart! Maybe he knows where Sam is...

"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing."

Ummm... okay... I believe Albert Einstein said that first!

This guy looks like a farmer. Isn't that strange? We don't have any farms around here.

Nope, haven't seen 'im. Been feeding my chickens all mornin'.

Oh, hey! You are far from home, have you seen Sam? He is about about 3 feet tall and has red hair.

No, Senorita...

Well, this guy is the last guy I can ask.

Sam? Haven't seen him!

Wait a minute! Did that mustache look fake to you?

Happy Birthday, Sugar!

Happy Birthday to a very sweet girl! Our dear friend Sugar turns 9 today! If you get a chance, hop on over and send her wishes!

I made it back from DC in one piece, and (hopefully) have some great pictures to share! I am hoping I will be able to get those posted this week!

Out of Office

I'm in DC all this week for training. I miss my boys terribly! I won't be able to post pictures of the real Sam and Monty this week, but thought I would share this pencil sketch I did on hotel paper!

If you get a chance, head on over to Life is Better on 3 Legs. They have a rescue, Brody, that desperately needs a home. Please spread the word!

I hope you all have a great week!
