Night Night Everyone

Happy Friday To You All!! :-D

Hope that you had a wonderful week!

Freckles the Dog

There are lots of things going on for pups and kittens this weekend:

  • Maddie's Pet Adoption Days - 15 Rescues and Shelters in San Francisco will be adopting out friends for free to qualified pet parents (along with 7 other counties across the country, New York and Florida guys check it out)!!
  • One Million Dog March - Dog parents of the Bay Area are trying to break the Guinness World Record for the largest dog walk, along with a fantastic festival! 
  • Dog Day on the Bay - The only dog friendly cruise along the Bay, lucky pups get to dine on a bow wow buffet, drink out of canine water stations, and even do their business on a sod covered poop deck! 

Freckles the Dog

We won't be going to all these events, especially since that doggy sailing event is super duper expensive, but we're definitely going to try and hop over to a couple of them!! :-D

So, since my schedule's going to be chock a block full for the next couple of days, I'm going to have an early night!

Memorial Day Weekend

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

I hope that you all had a wonderful three day weekend!! :-D We decided to stay close to home and enjoyed a little well deserved R&R.

On Saturday, Domeek ventured off to a brand new farmer's market in the Sunnyvale area (little insider's tip, if you are in the Bay Area, definitely check this one out!), as usual, they didn't allow pups inside the gates so I stayed at home and slept in (win-win)!

Freckles the Dog

There were over 30 different certified organic vendors at the market along with a myriad of bakeries, florists, and food truck suppliers...all in all a wonderful start to the weekend! :-)

Freckles the Dog

All of these fresh vegetables cost just $20! Crazy!! ;-)

We also managed to visit the dog park on Saturday afternoon and Sunday. I'm not sure what was happening on Saturday, but there were a ton of different families picnicking in the park and almost everyone had a dog, so there were a whole new set of pups to play with! WooHoo! I particularly fell in love with a mixed poodle (or as his Pop's called him, a moodle (hehehe)!) who was about 2 years old and was visiting, not only our's, but a dog park in general for the first time! Domeek called him my magnet, cause he followed me wherever I went! ;-) I hope that he comes to play again!

Freckles the Dog

Then, this afternoon, Domeek and I went over to Aunty Nilla and Cousin Pippi's house for a BBQ!!!! Man, who doesn't love a great barbecue?! Yum!  :-D We had so much fun! We played, we fought, we went to the park...

Next time we go over to their house, Domeek says that she will have to video us playing together...apparently it's hilarious! Hm... ;-) Pippi literally threw me across the backyard today, I just turned around and ran straight back at her again..."Bring it Pippi!!!" Muahahaha!

Well, I hope that you all had a fantastic weekend, visited wonderful places, and ate lots of delicious things!!

Time To Get The Weekend Started...

Happy Friday Everyone!!!

TGIF, especially since it's a 3 day weekend...woohoo!!! :-D

Are any of you US pups doing anything particularly fun this Memorial Day? I'm not sure what Domeek and I are going to be up to...but we'll definitely be doing something!

Well, I thought I'd leave you with a clip of how I like to start the weekend fun...

I haven't seen Stoli in about a month, so we had a good romp together...then my bud Oliver finally came back to the park too, I haven't seen him since the Holidays, crazy!

Hehehe! Enjoy everyone! :-)

Wordless Wednesday - Mmmmm...BarkBox

Yes, I said that in Homer Simpson's voice! ;-)

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!

Well, as you can tell from the title, I got this month's BarkBox! I'm not saying what's in it, since some of you might not have received yours...but I was meh on about half of it! I think that they were reusing a lot of the contents! :-/ Oh well, a treat is a treat!

Have a great day everyone!!

PeeS: My heart goes out to everyone who was affected by Oklahoma's tornado! :-( It's just not fair! If you know someone who has lost or found a pet, please visit the Lost and Found Animals of Oklahoma's Tornadoes Facebook page!

Thankfully there are small miracles that are occurring though, including the doggie that was found buried under ruble while his Mom was talking on live TV!



Aw, I'm A Lucky Pup!

Happy Tuesday Everyone!! Hope that you are all having a pawesome week!

So, last Thursday my buddies, Wally and Sammy, decided to bestow upon me a super, duper awesome award...The Sunshine Award!!! :-D [Blushing]

Freckles the Dog

What I was so happy about was that it is an award for “bloggers who positively pawsitively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere“. Dawwwww... :-S There's nothing better in my little pup life than inspiring others to have fun, be their own dog, and help others when they can...so now I'm totally chuffed!

Now for the rules of the award [cough]:

1. Thank the blogger who gave this award to you & link his / her -

     Already said it before, but thank you so, so much Wally and Sammy!! Oh and for those of you who don't know the brothers (what rock have you been living under?!)...they are a crazy, fantastic duo from South Africa who never look down from a challenge (can you say Occupy Couch 2013?), but have hearts of gold!! Go check them out, like now!! ;-)

2. Pass on the award to 10 fabulous bloggers, link their blogs & let them know you awarded them -

I think I'm going to steal the idea from Wally & Sammy and pass this award onto just a handful of pups, cause the rest of you already know that you totally rock!! ;-)

     * Reilly and Denny from Cowspotdog - These boys inspire me all the time to get outside, enjoy the sunshine, and smell on! Reilly also constantly inspires me to take my brothers for who they are, however annoying as they sometimes are! ;-)

     * Noodles from A Bowl of Noodles - Noodles is one amazingly philosophical pup, she constantly inspires me to think outside of the box (or crate)!! Her One Hundred Days is also an incredibly pawesitive addition!!!

     * Max from All About Max - Max has an incredibly inspiring relationship and connection with his Mom...together they can concur the World, starting with Houston! :-) Their photos and travels make me constantly want to get up and get going!

     * Blueberry from Spotty, Spotty, Polkadotty - Blueberry is one cool chick who has an incredibly large heart, together her Mom and her have assisted rescues and foster pups galore! :-D These two have left a paw print or two on lots of hearts!     

Well, there you go...thanks to everyone for constantly inspiring me and Domeek!! You all seriously rock!! :-D

Take care everyone!

One Brick For One Bark

Happy Monday Everyone!!!

I hope that you all had a stellar weekend!! :-D

Domeek and I managed to get to One Brick for One Bark...and it was pretty darn pawesome!! We were a little worried, since there weren't too many people or pups there to begin with, but in the end there were about 40ish pups! :-D Not too shabby for a community event!

There were lots of local vendors including pup stores, daycares, training facilities, and photographers, who were all incredibly nice and most gave me either goody bags or treats! ;-)

Check out some of the photos from the event...

I called this pup "Mini Me" cause he looked exactly like me...only 1/2 size!

My friend from the doggie park, Chloe!

Is it me, or do these two awesome pups look like little Blueberries?!!! :-D

Freckles the Dog
We got to watch two pups conducting a trial version of a nosework competition, then I got to try out a beginning version of the course! It was pretty fun and I got to eat lots of yummies!

Freckles the Dog

Finally, we got to watch a tricks/talent competition...man, oh man, are there a ton of super smart and talented pups out there!

Well, there you have it! We had a wonderful time and hope that next year's event grabs even more people, pups, and vendors! :-D

Oh, on a completely unrelated note, Domeek finally completed her tattoo, so stay tuned for the final shot! In my humble opinion, my portrait is by far, the best...but whatever! ;-)

Have a great day everyone!

A New Book and Toy

:-D It's the Weekend guys!!!

If you all remember, a couple of weeks ago, the wonderful Prudence from A Coonhound's Tales hosted a fun little giveaway on her blog! Her Mom went to a book signing for Simon Tofield, the author of Simon's Cat...the coolest and funniest comics, ever!

Well, they bought an extra copy of Simon's book and guess who won it??????

Yop, that's right - Little Old Moi!! :-D

Freckles the Dog

Well, two days ago, their package arrived!!! :-D

Freckles the Dog

I couldn't wait to open it!

Freckles the Dog

Check it out!! :-D

Freckles the Dog

I begged Domeek to read it to me immediately! :-) Look at the awesome signature and cartoon Mr. Simon drew!

Sooooo, I have to send a gigantic "Thank You" out to Prudence and her Mom! The book is absolutely fabulous and hilarious!

After having a wonderful time at the puppy park this afternoon (I totally took down three big pups) Domeek treated me to a new toy...I even got to pick it out! :-D

Freckles the Dog

Supposedly he's indestructible, but I already managed to tear a hole in him, muahahaha!

Freckles the Dog

Ok, that's it for today everyone! Have a fantastic Saturday! :-D
