WOW! What a week!

Harlo my pup friends! Wow, these past three days has been wonderful! Okay, okay to start out this post let me tell you all that I've been nominated for Awesome Blog Award for the month of July! Uh, OMG!!! Thank you so sooo much Booie my shorty friend for nominating me, hehehehe...

This is the one thing that I've always wanted, someone nominating for the DWB awards & I'm so speechless right now but very excited! This is my 1st time ever being nominated for something great like this. I've always been soooo jealous of my friends for winning those lovely awards(sorry, I didn't mean to but I couldn't help it) & never thought that my blog is good enough to win an award but look! I've FINALLY been nominated! Wooohoooo! You have no idea how excited I am... If I win! Woh! I think I'll faint... hehehehe. Okay, okay I think I'm over doing it here but anyhoo, if you would like to vote for me(which I hope you will) then just go over to DWB webby & vote there yer!?

Me panting like hell after a long walk...

Okay to the next now! Just yesterday we had a stoopid black out here in our area. I think something busted & we had no electricity for 7 hours! For my hoomans, they were totally pissed! But for me? I was having a time of my life altho it was a wee bit hot after a loooong night walk. The black out started around 8 pm & went on till 3 am in the morning.

Chloe looking at you...

Mommy gave us a big bowl of ice water with ice cubes in it for us to drink & cool down. Chloe drank most of it. She was really dying of heat...

Eventually I needed some too... It was hot, hot, HOT!

My hoomans & mommy was complaining that is was very, very hot(which was sooo true especially for a long haired doggy like me) & so we all together as a family slept in the... yeap. The PORCH! But hey, it was very cooling out there ya know & it was all padded up with mats & my mommy washed & scrubbed the porch in the afternoon & so it was quite clean. They all slept through out the night except me coz I was still suffering from the heat. But then they went back upstairs to bed when the electricity came back on. Hopefully, it doesn't happen again!


Okay, enough about that, let me tell you what I got today! Today, I was just lazying around after my breakfast as usual then suddenly, our doorbell rang & we three went berserk!(we usually become like that when we hear doorbells ringing even if it's just coming from the television) The mailman coming out from his van handed over a big big parcel to my mommy. I knew it was a pressie but I didn't know who it was from. Mommy gave to me & I looked at it & it's from the Newfs, Nanook & Pooka all the way from the USA. Yahoooooooooo! Thank you guys!

You see how happeeeee I am!?

I tired a few attempts to open the box but I failed so mommy eventually had to tear a part off from the box. I could smell something familiar in there. Its smelled sooo good, something green & no, not veggies & not the treats either. Something else... I couldn't wait any longer & just hbad to tear the box open to get it.

It's a TENNIS BALL! My favourite... And no, it's not just like any other ordinary tennis balls. It's double the size of a normal tennis ball & it squeaks too! Ooooo, how exciting! I rate this ball a good bouncy TEN!

I got a loverly letter too! Nice paw print Nanook... Mmmmm, smells like your feet.

And a special Moo Moo's private part aka bully stick. Chloe that's MINE! You see how pissed my face looks??? Give it to me or else...


The two monkeys love the sweet potato chips! I'm not a sweet tooth girl so they both can have it. All theirs!

And while those two are enjoying their potato ships, I'm enjoying me smelly bully stick. And guess what? It was totally terminated within 15 minutes! Fast eh!? Heeeheee...

My hooman kept there other bag of Salmon treats for training. Hhhmmmpppfff! Fine! Anyway, what do you think of those pressies guys? Lovely aren't they. This is my 1st time getting to taste a bully stick, yum yum! Thank you my friends! Thank you very much! I LOVED them all so did Faith & Chloe.

Hi Amber Mae! You are one super-cool doggie! Love your dance moves! And despite being a star you go help out people who need a smile from you. Are you great or what! How'd you learn to dance? We can't even pass our CGC 'cause we don't want to stay even though we know what it means. We're too hyper!

Stanley said...


You are so stinkin' bootiful, girl! Thanks for visiting GooberStan, and for your kind (and perceptive) comments about Merv's photographic skills. He's amazing!

I love the nosey shots! My girl has a special weakness for goldens (and Airedales, of course). She and I both loved reading about your blackout adventure in the heat. Ughhhh. I understand why you couldn't sleep.

Cool prezzies from Nanook & Pooka. Those boys know what a dog likes, don't they?

I'm linking to your page so we can keep up with each other. Give my love to your mama and everydog there!

Goober love and kisses,

Great blog. I really liked it. I have also created a lens in same niche. This is my first time, hope u guys like it. Here’s a brief intro: This article will highlight just a few benefits of The Bully Stick, an increasingly popular, all-natural dog treat. Unlike most dog treats, Bully Sticks are 100% all natural. And since they contain no chemicals or preservatives, your dog is assured of receiving a "clean" and healthy pet treat. Besides being totally safe for your dog, they are also fully digestible and a great source of protein.
