Peanut Butter With My Toast Please ?

Somebody's human dad could not finish their toast and peanut butter this morning, making somebody else pretty happy about that.

Just a little bit sticky to the roof of my mouth maybe, but oh so good !

We were updating our Facebook Page this morning when we had something brought to our attention by one of our Aussie friends, and boy oh boy ain't it the truth ????

I really don't know when people are going to figure it out, do you?

Another "tip" when buying us toys from a Pet Store, as they are not always safe either so keep a close watch at times:

SHOUT OUT ! Rob had bought a Hear Doggy Toy for Bandit. Within an hour of him having it I heard a "clink" on the floor to find the one piece of plastic with a small screw in it. I grabbed it up. We then inspected the toy again before giving it back to him... not long after two more pieces of plastic were gotten from it by him. I have made a call into the Quaker Pet Company, also sending them off an email including photos. Hopefully I will get a response from them. Good thing it wasn't a puppy, or they would have eaten the plastic bits up along with the screw without a thought. So buying authentic "safe" for dogs toys doesn't always mean they are the best either at $12.00 a shot.

I would rather buy our dogs a stuffed animal from a Second Hand Store and take the stuffing from them once they pull it out rather then have pieces of plastic and small screws going down their throats, just in case they might not pass through.

A Little Christmas Cheer

Christmas Eve here North of Wiarton was pretty quiet this Year with no human Grandkids to go out in the snow to play with, so my Human Dad, Rob,  decided to have a little fun at my expense.

.... but we got him back & I was the Winner since I got my new Christmas Toy a day early.

Catching Up With Our Checkerboard Aussies

We have all been so rather busy here with pre-Christmas business it is difficult to keep up with everything else at times.  With that said, it is difficult not to want to share what our Checkerboard Aussies have been up to ....

A mere couple of weeks ago before any snow had arrived to our Neck of the Woods there had been some heavy duty shedding of our Lexus going on that needed attending to no matter how busy.  She had been looking rather mangy without a good brushing.

Bandit loves cooker turnip, however does not care for veggies that are uncooked.  Fuss pot he is, much more then the other three.

Last week Lexus got to be co-pilot when I took her along to meet up with Human Dad.  

Lexus "caught" stealing out of Buddy's food bag, giving me the "look" when scolded.  Cheeky girl she was.

Buddy was all happy happy I got warm new Winter Boots as that means longer first thing in the Morning outings for him.

Missy Mercedes loves the snow, but first priority is "where is my food?" with her.

We got to visit briefly with an 11 Year Old Great Dane yesterday, called "Summer".  She is truly a doll and oh so lovable.  For all those out there who love DOGS, and Great Danes, check out this Web Cam where Great Dane Service Doggies are being raised by *clicking* HERE.  Pretty cool, eh?

Truly our Humans have been so busy lately they are all in but for their shirt tails some days, as Bandit also was this day.

That is all she wrote for this "catch up" ....
