The item featured today was purchased online at http://www.jklgrooming.com/ . After my lousy haircut at PS on March 19th Mom searched for an instructional drawing for a proper Airedale cut. She found this website and ordered the 8 1/2 x 11, double sided, hard copy , grooming poster for $6.99 + $5.95 S&H, $12.94USD total. (That is their discription of the item.)
The chart arrived today, and it did look just like the picture, but it was a xeroxed copy , and not on hard stock paper or laminated. Just a double sided copy of the chart in a light plastic sleeve. What a disappointment this was. Now the write up did not say it was on cardboard or laminated, it just said "hard copy" so Mommy may have jumped to a conclusion there. Does anyone else think this sounds like a rip-off?
Well, that concludes our first installment of "Not Worth The Money.../??". If you have any suggestions for future posts, let me know!

This is us Sunday, after playing at the dog park on Dunlap & 25th Avenue. Boy were we tired out! We had a very busy weekend. We flew to NYC to attend the fabulous Spring Fling dance at the famed Rainbow Room. Hootie spent most of the time under the table, spying on his main crush, Lacie the Lakie. I met an older gentledog named Hamish from Scotland. He enjoyed his champagne but was still able to foxtrot and do a few fancy new steps! We spent most of the evening dancing together. Petey threw this fun shindig and I want to thank him for helping arrange the gowns and jewels that I wore. We returned back to Phoenix in time to make a trip to the dog park on Sunday. When Mommy and Dad went to church at 530pm Sunday evening we didn't even get into any mischief!! We were that tired!
For more pictures and a great writeup on the party, just click here: Petey's blog.

An open letter to the Spring Fling winners:
Dear Asta, Mason, Chase, Maggie & Mitch ~
We helped Mommy wrap your prizes up this evening. She likes to do that sort of thing on her bed because she can spread everything out. There were a few incidents, but everything is now ready to go out in the mail tomorrow morning. Hootie ran off with Mason's Jai Alai ball toss but Mom caught him before he made it his own. If you'll remember from the March 19th post, he had his eye on that for a while. Sorry about that Mason, he didn't slobber on it too much. Then, I got up on the bed and stole a bone she was going to tuck into a package. I got the plastic wrap off of it and yum was that tasty. Mom made both of us kennel up at that point. She told me I was a greedy guts! Hey, that bone looked just like one that she should have bought for me...how was I to know? Anyway, she finally got everything wrapped and now it's just waiting to be mailed tomorrow morning. Yippee!
Smooches from pooches, Baby Rocket Dog & Hootie
p.s.~The picture at the top was taken 3/19. Oh, and I got to keep the bone I confiscated. he he he.

Here is the moment we've all been waiting for!!
3rd Place winner is: Chase
2nd Place winner is: Mason Dixie
AND the Grand Prize Winner is: Asta
Now, we need to notify each winner to arrange for the prizes to be mailed out. Congrats to all the winners and thank you to all the pups who entered the Spring Fling contest. We are so glad to have made your acquaintance!
Asta, now you must choose one of these 5 prizes (below) to go with your new leash & collar. Let us know which one you would like. Or, you can trade the leash & collar for one of the 3 larger prizes. We're easy!
What is this? Mommy said we had to have at least one Airedale winner, so Daddy was instructed to keep drawing until an Airedale popped up. Well, his very next draw was Maggie & Mitch. Good. Now this is finally over!! XO-BRD & Hootie

Doesn't she appear humiliated at this dastardly doo??
Sorry girl, but this is a really bad hair day for the Airey set!
Here I am checking out her (less than)fuzzbutt shot!

This beautiful leather leash and collar will also go to the grand prize winner. (Mommy purchased a size small matching collar too, in case a little dog is the winner.)

As for me, Baby Rocket Dog, I went to the vet yesterday morning. He said I must be an athlete (which made me proud, as I do play a mean game of fetch!) because I had a good strong heartbeat and it was slow. I did have some blood in my stool, but no parasites or anything. I am on a bland diet of long grain,white rice and chicken broth. Not too bad actually, when you're starving!! Dr. Boggess said I either have a sensitive GI tract or it could be Crohn's disease or something like that. Mommy has to watch my pooh for any further blood of course, diarrhea and I am taking an antibiotic just to make sure I don't have an infection.
I'll keep you all posted on how I'm doing.
Airekisses & hugs, Baby Rocket Dog

See this unopened TV box in the back bedroom? Notice the hole chewed in the box?
I just do not understand why he does such things. Ah well, he is still just a pup!
Hope you're all having a good weekend.

We are taking a few days break from blogging in memory of our friend Klaus, Bogart's daddy and Lulu's love and husband. His passing has hit our little blogging community hard and we hope everyone reading this will keep Lulu & Bogart and the rest of Klaus's family in their prayers.
love, Cassie, Baby Rocket Dog & Hootie

I hope you all enjoyed the trip to the dog water park with us. Our friends in Australia, Noah and the Airegals, have a little water park right in their yard so they know they are water dogs and are not afraid to get their toes wet. Mommy said I should be a water dog too, so this is really my first try at getting my feet wet. I would only go so far out though, because there is a ledge in the water where it drops off and I really do not know yet if I can swim!! Maybe I'll be more adventurous next time. Bye for now & have a great day! Smooches & Airehugs, BabyRD
