RUSTY & SMOKY: The indignities of life that a guy is subjected to, it's just not right! We know our folks love us, but must we be clean! What's so wrong with being dirty and a little smelly? Can't they love and appreciate us in a gritty and stinky kind of way?
More photos and more to say about this recent experience next time . . .

Looking Forward to the Garden's Harvest

RUSTY & SMOKY: Our folks have been taking advantage of a little cool spell in the weather, to catch up on some gardening in their spare time. So, unfortunately they have not posted alot of updates on our life this week. Yet, we are not holding it against them, as we have been assured that we will be sharing in the garden's harvest. Yummy!!

Just Hanging Out

Smoky and Rusty, just hanging out - looking for something to get into. Hopefully nothing naughty, but that may be too much to ask for, since they are good-time boys.

Learning from the Bad Food Recall

Like most pet lovers, we were greatly distressed by the bad pet food recall. You hate to think that you may be doing anything to harm your little furry kids, and they can't even tell you exactly what is happening to them. Fortunately, there were just a few treat items that appeared on the lists, that we possessed. So far, they do not appear to be harmed by eating the suspect food items; but, since they were treats, they were only receiving them on occasion. The recall has forced me though, to take a closer scrutiny of not only the food the puppies receive, but also what the whole family eats. Sometimes you feel like you have to be the food police, investigating the source and the contents of the food we eat. It certainly can make life more complicated.

When the recall first occurred, we found it really difficult to get through on the phonelines. So, I started referring to the food companies' websites, to get updated information about recalled items. In doing so, I made a wonderful discovery - several of the major dog food companies have regular newsletters that you can receive by email, with helpful information. I have created links (on the sidebar to the right) for a couple of them.
I especially like Pedigree's newletters, because you can select newsletters for puppies, adult dogs, and mature dogs. The articles are always informative and enlighting, yet brief and simple. Check them out!

May I Please Have a Belly Rub?

SMOKY: Belly rub, please. I really need a belly rub, and I'm begging for one. I've been sort of good, if you don't mind that little hole I made around your freshly planted roses.

We're Back!!

RUSTY: It's good to be back! Our folks have been so busy, that they have not had time to keep our blog going. But now things are not as hectic, so we once again can share the adventures and experiences of our lives! Our mom says that she is going to try really hard to keep our postings regular, allowing us the opportunity to express our feelings about the everyday life of two puppy dogs that just like to have a lot of FUN.

These pictures were taken a couple of weeks ago, when we had our monthly bath. Speaking about that, I believe that another bathtime should be coming up anyday now. Our baths are usually a very pleasant experience, sort of like a spa day. We not only get a bubble bath, we also get a manicure and pedicure. After being cleaned and refreshed, we are served a yummy selection of appetizing treats. If we are really good, sometimes we even get a piece of freshly broiled chicken. Those are days to look forward too.

The only drawback is that after getting our bath, we are usually detained until we are fully dry. As is evident from the photos, Smoky uses this as a opportunity to get a little post-spa nap. I must say, though, that I find it quite offensive to be treated so well, and then confined like a common criminal. Despite my best efforts at a protest, I was not released until I was fully dry. What a guy doesn't have to go through in order to look good!!
