Hmmmmm.......A Real Naughty Terrier.

 Here am I, Hootie, innocently laying in the window seat, dreaming of my sweet wife, Sally Ann.
 Above is the bed in question.  Note slobber marks and huge AireButt indentations on bedspread.
HERE is the guilty party. She is one of the original members of The Naughty Terrier Club.

While I was innocently resting in the window seat downstairs, my big sister, Baby Rocket Dog, was up in the loft lolling around on Mommy & Daddy's bed.  She always checks out their night stands for any possible goodies to munch out on.  She got a cough drop this time.  I know this because there was a wrapper on the floor.  She jumped off the bed before Mom could catch her, but the evidence is clearly there.  Naughty, naughty sister!! 

I am the good boy. No question about that!  Okay, better go now.

How We Helped Daddy in August...

Okay, maybe we weren't that great a help.  But, we had lots of fun watching Daddy prepare a seating area in our little dog park here at Smiling Moose Point.  I, BRD, stayed close by Dad, so he could throw my ball every few minutes for me.  Hootie decided that sitting up near the cabin provided a better view.  The finished project is a nice, flat area for the folks to sit at while watching us romp.  So, what do you think?  Should we keep Dad on staff for future projects?? Bol.

Some June Stuff...

Hi Friends.  Just a short post here.  We got to check out a huge set of elk antlers and a mule deer mount.  Also, we are very proud of the hooman grandson who won 3rd place in the Kootenai River Run in June.  Congrats to him!!
More later.

What We Did In May...

                                                                    On I-90 to N. Idaho
                                                     This is my dad and me the day of my surgery.

  I was feeling a bit loopy.  You can see it in my eyes.

 A few days later I was getting used to "the cone of shame"...Still not liking it though.

                                                          Here is Hootie Bug at the Mutt Strutt.
                                                           Hootie and me after getting my cone off.

May was a busy month for us.  We traveled to our cabin in North Idaho from Phoenix and made the 1500 mile trip in 2 days!  Daddy was an amazing driving machine.  He didn't even stop to blow his nose. BOL. We were our usual well behaved selves unlike Dad. Of course we've made this trip many times before. For fun, Hootie got to go to the Mutt Strutt for Pawsitive Works (I couldn't go due to my stitches--see later explanation.) and he won the costume contest and brought home a nice basket of treats. Good work brother!  OH, and Hootie and Miss Sally Ann Stanley announced on Face Book that they were secretly married!!  Yes, they finally tied the knot.  Here is the announcement:

BREAKING NEWS! (Finally) Mr. Hairy "Hootie" Houdini-Phillips is proud to announce that he and his fiancé of 2 years, Miss Belleville Sally Ann Stanley, were married March 1st, 2013, St. David's Day. They eloped to the village of Gretna Green, in the south of Scotland. Neither party's parents were made aware of this secret ceremony until just recently. The happy couple will be maintaining homes in Arizona, Georgia and Idaho so they can take care of Hootie's aging parents and also enjoy the night-life of Atlanta with Sally Ann's mother and little brother, Andy.

Okay, you are probably wondering why I, Baby Rocket Dog, have the "cone of shame" in the photos above.  Well, I had an operation not long after we arrived in farrr North Idaho in May.  It seems I am a lumpy dog.  While giving me a bath in April my daddy found a lump the size of a human thumb just below my bum. The folks took me to a veterinarian  in Wickenburg, Arizona and he said it should be removed when we got back up to Idaho.  My surgery by Dr. Hall went well and it was determined that I had a perianal adenoma (which is benign). That was a good thing.  Two weeks with that stupid cone on was no treat, but Daddy and Mommy would take it off when they could keep a close watch on me.   (I really wanted to lick it...those stitches were itchy!)  I had my stitches removed 2 weeks later and now I'm free of the cone.  Hootie seems unusually interested in my bum now, but other than that, things are back to normal.  I hope your May was lovely!

Daddy Got Us A New Car!

 These pics are of Mommy & Hootie with our brand new Subaru Outback.  Subaru has advertised for several months now, that they are especially dog friendly.  Of course, we know this because we had a Subaru Legacy wagon for years before a rude deer ran into us and totaled it and we just loved it.  We are still in Arizona right now, so Daddy purchased our new wheels here.  Now, here's the thing:  Mommy seems to think Dad bought this car for her, while we know that he actually bought it for US.  Of course, we will allow Mommy to chauffeur us around...all the time knowing that it is our car.  You might remember that I actually got my Idaho driver's license in February, so when no one is looking Hootie and I can go joy riding for a spin. Don't tell!! 

Hope you all have a great weekend.  Those of you back East, enjoy the snow for us!  It's in the high 80's here in Phoenix. Yikes!

Our Circus Surprise Prize Arrived!

Well these pictures tell the story.  Hootie and I won this wonderful prize for "most comments" at the big Blogville Circus in February.  We were shocked at the win and also very excited for the prize to get here from our new friend, Roo.  Well, it arrived on the 8th and what a grand prize it was.  Get this, Mom didn't let us touch ANY of the gifts inside...she said they were just for hoomans!! Books and dvd's and such.  Imagine our chagrin.  Well, it turns out there actually was something there for us...It just required some patience. There was a GIFT CARD for PetSmart!!!  One of our favorite places to go, next to Home Depot and the Frozen Yogurt Store.  That was so cool.  We got to celebrate with a knuckle bone for each of us.  Thanks Roo and the Circus Team!  BTW, we think that the goal for the circus fund-raiser was reached too and that is fantastic.  You guys are swell in many ways.

A Circus!!! AND Valentine's Dance Picture

The Blogville Circus is taking place today and tomorrow and all are invited to attend.  Hootie and I have already gone and plan to go back again tomorrow if we can talk the folks into it!!  

This is Hootie at Asta's Funhouse looking in the miwwow mirror. he he. 
His very large mouth is even larger than usual!

 Here I am at the fun house mirror.  My eye looks pretty spooky...NOT fun. BOL!!
 Really had to post this of Laciegirl, as it makes her bum look EVEN HUGER huge.

And now, here is the photo of Hootie and his fiancé, Sally Ann from the big Valentines Dance/Party last night.  We all had a great time.  I got to dance with Wyatt so my night was made complete.  Word has it that the punch was spiked and arrest warrants are our for several of our buddies.  You can read more about it here on Mollie & Alfie's blog. 

Well, that about does it for today.  Hootie and I need to brush up on our begging skills, since we want to attend the circus again tomorrow to see the rest of the tents & sideshows.

Zoyo all around!

These are pics from my birthday (plus one) celebration.  We all went to Zoyo and had frozen yogurt.  Hootie and I had vanilla and it was yummers!  When mine was all gone I begged from Daddy.  After pigging out I went home and destroyed a few toys.  It was a grand day!  Thank you to all my friends for the warm barkday wishes. Much appreciated.

Happy 6th Barkday To Me...

 Here I am as a wee pup, soon after I was adopted by Daddy & Mommy.
 I loved to sleep on Dad and Mom's laps...Now I just put my top half on them.

 Posing nicely for the camera.  I ate that basket I'm in here. It was tasty! Bol.
 This is me posing for my "Ask BabyRD" column. 
Seems like forever ago when pooches wanted my advise on stuff.
 I'm not sure what Phoenix butcher cut my hairs for this pic. Friend Cathi took it.
 And finally, here I am at our place up in Idaho.  I sure miss the fresh aire.

So, today is my 6th birthday. Tomorrow Mom said they'll take me to get frozen yogurt because they forgot today was my big day until Cousin Sheila reminded them via email.  I can hardly wait!  Maybe she'll get some après Birthday yogurt shots of me.  Hootie and I did get to go to Friday night Bible study with the folks tonight.  Had to stay in the car, but that was fine, since we enjoy car trips to anywhere. WooHoo!!  So, that is my big exciting birthday.  Ta ta for now!

National Dress Up Your Pet Day!!


National Dress Up Your Pet Day....Yes, there really is such a thing and the USA has proclaimed January 14th to be the day.  Hootie decided he wanted to be a Hootie-in-sheep's-clothing for this absolutely silly auspicious  occasion. (And, yes, he is sitting on my bed for his picture.)  I half-heartedly enthusiastically chose to wear my diva shirt and the pink polk-a-dot necklace my vet gave me for not biting him just such an occasion.

So friends, here we pose for you, so you can have a laugh or maybe get stuck have the honor of getting to dress up today too!
