Section targeting

Thursday, June 21, 2007


RUSTY & SMOKY: We just wanted to let everyone know about a new website that we just found. It's called: Petcentric. We think it's a really neat site that Purina has put together. Some of the highlights we enjoyed:

It lists fun dog events taking place across the country. For example, there is a Doggie Olympics that is happening in Long Beach, WA on Saturday, June 23rd. (Man, we would like to be there! We know with our speed and agility, we would be sure to win something, anything, we are not choosy! We would take a nice, juicy dog bone.)

It has a section called Dogs Making Headlines, that features interesting bits of news. Like on June 13th, it had a story that Japan plans to start a nursing home for dogs. (Interesting, but we are much too young to begin to worry about things like that yet.)

Also, there are feature stories. Right now, one of the stories tells what they are looking for to be on David Letterman's Stupid Pet Tricks show, and what it is like to be on the show. (Now that sounds like something we would give serious consideration to. Fame on David Letterman's show....)

There is a photo gallery, where people can submit pictures of their canine and feline family, doing all kinds of things.

In addition, there is information about pet products, books, and more.

It's a FUN site, check it out.

Rusty's Recent Bathtime

RUSTY: I'm in your face! How many times have I told you that I'm just fine, no bath needed. Yet, every couple of weeks you people insist on lathering me up, and rinsing me off. The only good thing that comes out of this experience is the treats. The treats are pretty good.
Now that you are finished, I am going to completely ignore you. I am going to read the newspaper, and see what else is happening in the world today. Don't talk to me, I'm still upset with you! Talk to my back!
I do know, though, that you guys love me. You do try to take such good care of me. If this dreadful experience will help us bond more, I'm willing to endure it. I'll do anything for your love!!

Smoky's Recent Bathtime

SMOKY: They always catch me off guard, and before I know it, I'm in water. I'm just not taking it anymore, I will decide when and if I want a bath. I was just perfectly happy with the grit and grime on me. I was a little itchy, but I was willing to live with it. And Rusty had not expressed any complaints about body odor from me. I think I could have went at least another couple of weeks without a bath.
I know they are watching me, but if I'm really fast, I might be able to make a getaway.
Oh, it's no use! I might as well go ahead and submit to this. I'm going to let them know, though, through my body language and eyes that I do not approve of my treatment!
When I got out of the water, I showed them, I turned my back to them. They will not enjoy the pleasure of my company!
It does feel sort of good being clean. My itchiness has went away. I'm not going to let them know though. If they think I'm very displeased, that will mean more treats for me! I have got them wrapped around my fingers. Now for my treats! Yummy!!
