Cell Phone Pix Series: Part 4

Chad has been having to work lately on Saturdays, so one Saturday a few weeks ago I decided to give him something to smile about when he got home. I took one of his old t-shirts and made the dogs look adora-bull!

Spuds sports his homemade Buckeyes gear:

Don't show these pictures, I'm embarrassed!

Spuds thanking me for his cool shirt. Don't let his humble look fool you in these pics. Everytime we dress him up he has to prance around to everyone in the house as if he's showing off his coolness. He gets really excited if you tell him he looks cool, ha!

Don't worry, I used the other half of the shirt to make Shadow one, too!
She was more into chewing on her ball than showing her Buckeye pride... oh well!

Petfinder Pick of the Week!

Not that I can promise I'll post something -ahem- someone, this cute every week, but, I'll try!
I was perusing Petfinder yesterday and found pretty much the cutest thing in the world:
His name is Isaac and he's full grown and 30 lbs!! It's like having a puppy forever! He is a Springer Spaniel/Chocolate lab/pit bull terrier mix. Here's his link: there are more adorabull pics of him. And he also has a brother who is 50 lbs!! How could you not love this face? That's why you should go adopt him. Just sayin' :)
Alright, I've officially lost too many brain cells looking at this beautiful pooch. Gotta sign off now... :)
Chocolate puppy goodness and happy wags, -The Pooches

Pitbull Awareness Day! And Post Number 100!

Happy Pitbull Awareness Day Everyone! Shadow got to practice her "on-leash" skills today!

And Shadow and Spuds got "donuts" (Actually dog treats that just look like donuts, haha!) The white one for Spuds, the pink one for Shadow.

Spuds enjoying his "donut." This picture made his eyes glow, so I tried to fix it with the red eye function on Picnik," so that's why his eyes look kinda weird in this pic lol.

And I just realized as a posted this that it is my 100th post! How Exciting!!!!!
Hug your dogs today!

Cell Phone Pix Series: Part 3

Another picture from a while back on my cell. This is a good picture of one of my favorite things about her. She has a big black stripe on this side of her nose. It was the first thing I noticed about her, and it made me instantly fall in love with her adorable face. I like it too because it makes her markings unique and asymmetrical.

These next few pictures are from earlier this week. Spuds and her go potty separately to ensure that they do their business before playing. So Spuds always goes first, and the whole time he's outside Shadow rings the bells on the door and stares out the window. She always rings the bells when he gets back to the door.
Mommmm, when is MY turn!?
She literally sits on her butt while she waits for him. I love when she sits like this, she looks so funny!
This picture makes her look so heavenly! (don't they say pictures are deceiving? hehehe) God (or whoever you may believe in!) is shining his light on Shadooby (one of my nicknames for her!).

Don't worry, Spuds finished up his duty soon after these pictures and Shadow was "finally" (as she would say if she could) let out :)

Just catching up...

...on reading everyone's blogs. I'm sitting with my lap top right now and Spuds doesn't approve. Since I am paying more attention to the black box on my lap than him, he felt like he had to be at least a small part of my focus. Hence the ear on the keyboard...

This is a pretty normal sight for when I'm on here in blog land, just thought I should share!

Cozy nights and happy dogs, -The Pooches

Cell Phone Pix Series: Part 2

I took this picture probably about two years ago. You may wonder why I took a picture of a seemingly random tow truck. The next picture will show you why...

It looked like Spuds was sitting in the front seat!! (Now, it was stupid for this driver to leave his dog in the truck with the window all the way down, but..such a cute dog!) I had to do a double take as I walked out of the fast food restaurant because at first I thought I saw Spuds which would've been impossible lol. When I got home I said to Chad, "Look what I saw today" and when he saw this picture he said "holy crap I thought that was Spuds for a second!"

Other cell pix of Spuds include...

Daddddd, pet me! NOW! How can you resist my adorabullness?

Fine. I'll just lay on your face 'til you pay attention to me.

And of course pics of Spuds "take your child to work day" experience!

I'm ready for work dad!

I'll drive!

A little to the left, dad.


I've got lots more randomness from over the last 2 years or so...stay tuned!

Cell Phone Pix Series: Part 1

I have a lot of pics on my cell phone that I've always wanted to post on here, so I'm going to make a point of trying to do that!

This is Shadow about a month after we got her- she was only about 11 months old and still so little!! (I wish we could (or I should say, we NEED to) get her back down to this weight, because now she's chunky!) She had gone into heat before we could get her in to be spayed, hence the diaper. The floor was also being remodeled, so this was definately a stressful few weeks!

Teeny Shadow! We were so happy at this time- even though it was stressful- she was like a little angel that came to our house. We couldn't have been more lucky to end up with her.
She would wiggle her butt and wag her tail so hard that the diaper would rip!

And this was Shadow last August bright and early on her way to be spayed. It looks like she knew it was going to turn out aweful (read back to August 2009 posts if you missed what happened!).

Stay tuned for more cell phone stories to come! :)
