An Early Happy Easter To Ya...

Sheesh Mommy,
Do ya think you could hold the camera still?
She thinks #2 is an artistic shot!
There you go, this one is in focus. Good work!

We're going to take a cue from our friends Martha and Baily and not post until after the Passover/Easter holiday season (they are at the same time this year!). We'll try to get around to visit other blogs in the mean time. Have a great week. Remember to stop and smell the flowers and we'll see ya'all in April!!

Just for funsies, our video of Hootie and The Bunny from last May:

Sunshine, Lolipops & Rainbows...

We just got this sunny, bright award from our long-legged Dane pal, Darwin, so before our mommy forgets who gave it to us (like usual) we made her post it. Post haste!! All we have to do is post it and pass it on. We're going to acknowledge some of our friends here right now, but open this up to all our special friends since we truly do love ya' all. So, feel free to claim this award, post it on your sidebar and make a list of buddies who have put their stamp on your hearts! We actually somehow missed our 1st bloggiversary on Feb 2nd but wanted to make sure that the dogs & their hoomans that inspired us know how much we appreciate them.

The very first poochie we met on line (around April 2008) was Bogart ~ that irresistible handsome devil! It was quite a time before we actually got our own blog but Bogie was our inspiration. Mommy talked about us on her blog, but it just wasn't the same as having our own special identity & voice. I (BabyRD) remember being amazed at all the great photos of Bogart's everyday exploits and how his family went to all the best dog-friendly spots in Portland to eat. Thanks buddy!! We love ya!

In the beginning we stuck mainly to Airedale sites so met these wonderful Dales (& Welshie!): Noah and his sisters ~ Maggie & Mitch ~ Ruby ~ Molly & Taffy (& now Monty too). It has been such a terrific trip getting to see how our mates in Australia, England and New England behave and what their lives are like. Of course we lurked in the background for awhile before we found our voice, and learned from these our predecessors.

The names Butchy & Snickers and Agatha & Archie attracted our attention right off the bat too. Catchy names and even catchier blogs! Mommy fell in love with these adorable WFT's and followed them long before our dogblog was started. If Mommy hadn't found Hootie to adopt in June 2008 she would have gotten a WFT to keep us company because of these pooches.

Well, from there we found out there are all kinds of wonderful breeds of dogs that are very easy to fall in love with. We met Chase the Puggle and were amused by his antics. He sent Hootie the very first gift he(we) ever received in the mail for his birthday last year. Yummy dog biscuits that we only ate for special occasions! Thank you for your thoughtfulness Chase. Then we met Honey who has since gone to the Rainbow Bridge. She was just a beautiful Golden girl who won our hearts. Her hoomans now are the family of Sierra Rose another swell Golden. Asta, the fabulous NYC dwelling WFT was perhaps our next pal. Her Baabaa Waawaa accent always makes our mommy laugh. And, her mama is so sweet and a brilliant artist (and
photo-shopper!!). Asta has helped us with her photo magic more than once and she is always so gracious. Martha and Bailey are Bassets that we met after Asta's Spring Fling last year. I,BabyRD, had an exciting evening with the dashing Westie, Hamish, at the Fling and have had to visit Scotland off & on ever since! Our dear friend Hamish has since gone to the Rainbow Bridge, but his girl,Gail, promises to keep in touch with us AND she has a new babypup, Bertie, coming to her home soon!! Yippee!! We made friends with Pedro a Chi-Waa-Waa from back East who collects rocks---Had to collect rocks for him on our way back home to farrr N.Idaho. Hootie had always thought Chi's were related to rodents and meant to be "chased & ett" so Pedro helped to change his mind. THen we had the most exciting time when we got to actually meet one of our fellow DWbloggers, Dr.Dre, a fiesty little Chi-Waa-Waa in person. Turns out we live in close proximity to each other up north and we llllllluuuurve Dre!! He is so funny and fun to romp with. Not at all like a rodent!! His hoomans are terrific too. We always LOL when we read his blog. Another blog that generally cracks us all up is the hilarious Life With Dogs. We wonder how they keep up with all those followers!

Well dear ones, there are so many other wonderful DWBers that we'd have to go on forever, so we will just stop here. We suggest you just go visit the DWB blogsite and visit some new blogs. So many good pooches and hoomans out there.

Have a great week ahead. Today is Palm Sunday and Mommy tells us that Easter is the very most important day of the year, so Easter week should be very special we think.

ps-There are several dear pooches that need our PawPower right now. Please pop on over to Asta's blog to read her 27thMarch post with names and links. X-BRD

Oh Eric! What A Wonderful Surprise!

Click on top collage to biggify. The bottom one doesn't want to cooperate though. Sorry.

Today Hootie and I had the best surprise. Quelle surprise! We received a package from across the pond from our buddy Eric Square Dog. It was full of the most marvelous pressies! We don't usually get presents in the mail, so this was a big deal for us. You might recall that in January when we drove down to Phoenix from Idaho Hootie had made "the great escape" at a pit stop in Rocker, Montana and lost his rabies tag and also his Welsh flag ID tag. Well guess what one of the pressies was from Eric? Yup, a brand new Welsh ID tag engraved with Hootie's name and our phone#. Hootie also got a cool new camo collar by DogzTogz and a Welsh neck kerchief. Mommy said she wants to wear the Welsh neck kerchief because it is so lovely. (Hootie said he'll think about it.) I got a nifty pink kerchief with daisies and words all over it and the most fabulous new collar. You know how I love collars. This one is a beaut! ANd it has a big pink daisy on it with MY name and phone# on it too! Soooo special. As soon as we opened the package we found a note written by Eric on this big WFT post card. (I hope you can see it in our collage above.) There was a nice big squeaky toy by Cruft's that looks just like an award and it says "Cruft's Best In Show" on it. Hootie immediately took the award, because he thinks he's such a great specimen of a Welsh Terrier. BOL! I'm sure the award was really meant for me but I'll allow him his fantasies. We've both already enjoyed chewing on it. Eric (& possibly his mommy!!) even thought of our mommy and sent her some real English toffee and a WFT luggage tag. We don't have words to express how tickled we all are with such excellent pressies. So, thank you Eric and your mommy too for being so thoughtful. We just love all the great stuff!!

Lots of Aire & WelshieSmooches,

Baby Rocket Dog & Hootie the Award Winning Show Dog

A Baseball Game & Something Funny

The above photo caught Mom's eye. Isn't it a cool as a moose licence plate?
Below the Los Angeles Angels are trying to catch up to the mighty Oakland A's.

This designated hitters name is Coco Crisp. Can you believe that?? Such a cool hooman name!

A view of the outfield at Papago Park.

Yup, there they are with matching shirts again.

The folks went to a Spring Training baseball game today to see the Oakland A's vs. the L.A. Angels. Can you believe they didn't even invite us to go with them?? All they brought home for us were these pictures. We were not happy, but since neither of us can drive (yet!) we had to stay home from the game. Sheesh life is rough sometimes. But, lucky for us we have been teleporting outta here when the folks are gone to be with Sally Ann, Mack and the gang in Europe.

On to other subjects. Our Mommy was reading Paw Nation tonight and was nearly busting a gasket she was laughing so hard. It was an article about dogs who eat ... well, poop. The article itself wasn't that funny, it was the comments that cracked her up. If you want a good laugh, read at least through to #40. It's good to have a good belly laugh at least once a week. Click HERE and it should take you to the Paw Nation post.

And on another note, today is our mommy's blog 2 year Blogoversary. If you get a chance, stop by and leave a comment. She digs poochy visitors!

Hope you are all having a great weekend.
