Welcome back to the Blogville DUCK TAPE FESTIVAL!  Plus, don't forget to check out adorable adoptable TOBY- our entry today for Mayzie's Rescue Me Home Week - AFTER today's ARTSY FARTSY DUCK TAPE Entry!

We think this is one awesome way to stake out your territory!  This way-cool entry was submitted by OSKAR and was created by his boy - JOHN!  The first layer is all grey duct tape, topped with the black duct tape, and then totally covered over in clear duct tape. His own personal masterpiece.  And we're betting it's probably INDESTRUCTIBLE! BOL!  

Oskar helping John (hmm, maybe with more DUCK TAPE creations???)

Oskar tells us that his boy, John, also created a t-shirt out of silver duck tape when he was in high school. He wore it to school and had all his friends sign it with Sharpies.  Sorry, no pics of that one.  But, it sounds better than a year book to us!  And probably lasts longer, too!  We think Oskar's boy, John, might find himself being offered a JOB by DUCK TAPE with these awesome creative skills!

Thanks Oskar (and John) for submitting this super creative ARTSY FARTSY entry to the DUCK TAPE FESTIVAL. 

We'll keep it rolling tomorrow with ANOTHER DUCK TAPE ENTRY!  Stay tuned . . . But don't leave yet . . .

Here's our ADOPTABLE DOG OF THE DAY for Mayzie's RESCUE ME HOME event ~

This is Toby.  He is being fostered through Save A Dog.  He's a rat terrier/Jack Russell mix (approx. 1 yr old) and he sends out a big HI! to Ranger.   



Toby is a small ADORABLE male short-haired terrier who has a HUGE heart. This dog has a soul, you can just see it in his eyes, in his whole expression. Whoever adopts him is going to be so lucky. We wouldn't be surprised if a book was written about him some day. This is one amazing dog who is going to blossom in your home. Like many of our rescues, he was a stray, nobody's dog, unwanted. Hard to believe. But now he is loved and adored by all the volunteers at Save A Dog. Toby is sweet, affectionate and playful. When He greets his people he will try to jump into your arms for hug and kisses. He loves kids and we recommend 10 and up for him. He is afraid of cats, so no cats, please. He can be timid with some men. He is recovering from an infection in his larynx, probably caused by the intubation during his neuter surgery. He is doing great and is not acting sick other than an occasional cough. When he was rescued he was wandering around a neighborhood in rural TN and people were threatening to shoot him, can you imagine!! Toby's foster mom says: He is smart, playful and very affectionate. He is great in his crate, on a leash and doesn’t bark in the house. He settles down beautifully and loves bully sticks, peanut butter kongs and his daily walks in the woods. I think he would really like to play with another small dog. He loves to chase toys in the back yard and will try to run with stuffed animals almost as big as he is, very amusing. When he gets excited he puts his ears back and crouches down and then springs up and runs in circles. He really wants to bond with his people. He is in a foster home so we require an application first so we can arrange for him to be brought to the shelter for the meeting.  Go to Save A Dog to find out more about adopting Toby and to see more adoptable pups.

OMD, think of all the green papers they could get fur their house now that the DUCK TAPE door as sent the real estate value THRU THE ROOF! It do be one of a kind and with so many peeples named John, certainly there be anudder John wanting to pay lots of green papers fur THAT pawticular house. I pawdict a bidding war. Brilliant!

Amber DaWeenie said...

Hmmmm...I think we need a ducky door like that one John made!

Toby is just adorable. I just can't imagine anyone who wouldn't want him as part of their family. It always seems the small dogs always get adopted first. At least that's the way it is around here.

Toby is a cute dog. Hope he finds a friend soon....without cats.

A Duct Tape door? Now that is a darn good idea. Oskar's John sounds brilliant. Good luck Toby on finding a forever home. You deserve it little guy. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Oskar said...

Thanks for posting My boy John's door. I can't believe that seeing that every day, she thought we didn't have an entry for this contest, people are slow sometimes!

I hope that Toby finds a great home soon.
