Nearly Wordless Wednesday - There goes our productivity...

To relieve the boredom of mid-week - we bring you the How Sam Sees It 2048 game.  To play, just use your arrows to slide the tiles around and match them.  When you combine two tiles, they will disappear.  Once you get used to it, it is kind of addicting...  The more tiles you clear, the more new How Sam Sees It photos you will see.  :)  Click on the photo below to go the game.

Updated:  We've discovered the game will not play on older versions of IE.  Chrome and Firefox seem to work the best.  Thanks!

Have fun!

On a serious note... AZGRC needs a little love!

You know that old saying "When it rains, it pours?"...  Well, in the continuing story of rescuing dog, that rain can bring a flood of gold to your doorstep - and it isn't the spendable kind!  AZGRC is no exception.  As you know, they are near and dear to our heart.  They brought us our dear Monty and gave us the courage to welcome a funny little yellow pup into our house.   ...and now, they could use a little help.

Mid-February was when the first Golden showed up.  Meet Julee, a sweet senior that needed a little help finding a new home.
Hi there!
Julee was followed closely by Matty....
I iz cute, freshly neutered and my adoption is pending!
After Matty came Goldie, a beautiful green-eyed girl that came from the reservation in northern Arizona.  AZGRC has helped the hard-working shelter in Kayenta many times.
How pretty is she?
Then came the beautiful escape artist, Annie.  It didn't take Annie long to find her forever home!
I am mesmerized by her pretty face!
Of course, these pups were all healthy and happy and just need a place to rest their pretty heads before their journey's continued.  But eventually, you just had to know that some of this gold would show up missing its shine...

This is Dylan, formerly named Igor.  Dylan's owner surrendered him to the Human Society, and the poor boy was sick with parvo.  How could anyone turn away?
I not feeling so well...
Next came Bella, another senior that needed to find a new home...
Just call me Smiley!
In the meantime, we are happy to report that Dylan is on the road to recovery, but before we could rejoice, along came Sean Connery.  Mr. Connery is another parvo pup, and it is touch and go with him.  His recovery has involved plenty of ups and downs - he developed aspiration pneumonia this week and is on antibiotics.  Sean needs all the Power of the Paw you can send him.
Please hold me, foster momma Candy...  I is not well...
...and of course, how could anyone turn their backs on the latest intake?  Meet Lolly.  Lolly is an 8 year old girl surrendered by her family with a MASSIVE tumor hanging from her belly.  Lolly is very lucky that AZGRC found her at the shelter.
Despite a massive tumor, this girl still has her smile!
I don't understand how they could let it get this big!
...and last but not least, AZGRC is also accepting a puppy that has congenital deformities...  No pictures yet of this new baby.

If you all could, could you please send the Power of the Paw to these sick pups?  They need our help to make it through their illnesses.

...and AZGRC could use some help too.  Not only are they paying to treat these serious illnesses, they are neutering, spaying and vaccinating the healthy pups that come through the rescue.  If you can, please stop by their page and donate a few green papers.  Every dollar makes a difference, and for these pups, every dollar is giving them the second chance they deserve.  Click here if you would like to make a donation.  Look for the bright red donation button on the right.

Tell them Monty and Harlow sent you!  Thank you all so much!

Harlow the Rodeo Pup

Okay, we didn't go to a rodeo this weekend.  We took Baron to the local arena for our trainer, Jeremy,  to work with him, and Harlow did get to come along...
I is a truck dog!
We met artist and fellow blogger Karen McClain at the arena.  She was there to take some photos of our trainer and even grabbed my iPhone to take this photo of Harlow and me.
My big guy Baron did awesome!  In a couple of weeks Jeremy will be taking Baron to the Verde Valley Equine Festival and will be using Baron in one of two demonstrations he will be doing over the course of the weekend. (Thank you, Karen, for the wonderful pictures!)
My little guy can move!  :)
We had a fun night.  Harlow enjoyed the attention, Baron was wonderful, and as I was heading home with the truck and trailer I saw this...
Must... take... nap....
A happy but tired pup!  :)

Weekend Recap

We had a wet, muddy weekend here in Arizona.  It was too wet to do much, the weather was a little wild (a very weak tornado was spotted in Mesa!), and we found ourselves confined to the house watching Netflix, house cleaning, and trying to entertain two very bored pups.  I thought I would just share some random photos from our weekend.
Bird patrol...  Harlow reports unusual bird activity on our northern boundary.  She will continue monitoring...

Computer time with Dad...

Enjoying being a Princess Golden...

Playing with toys till you can barely keep your eyes open...

...and I just don't know...
