GIVEAWAY - Not Edible

Okay, boys and girls (and Puddles) - here's your chance for a giveaway and believe it or not - you're already a WINNER!  All you have to do is send us your snail mail addy if you want one and we'll take care of the rest!  No kidding!  What?  Oh, you wanna know what we're giving away, right? 

A month or so ago, we were contacted by the lovely folks at Build-A-Sign inviting us to make our own stickers!  Thanks Mayzie :)  We were super excited because we've had this idea knocking around in our brains for awhile and really wanted to make it into a bumper sticker.  So, when Build-A-Sign contacted us, we said YES! Thank you!  As is our tradition, it took some time for us to get in gear and send the design to Build-A-Sign.  Okay, we admit that we were a bit intimidated at first - we don't even have (or know how to use) photoshop!  Would we be humiliated like Cooper was at Dock Dogs and the trick contest?  We finally got up our nerve to go to the website - thanks to others of you who have made stickers with Build-A-Sign and posted about how EASY PEASY it was.  And, sure enough, it IS EASY PEASY!  We had the EXACT design we wanted in just a few minutes, emailed it to Build-A-Sign and VOILA - awesome stickers!  We received the stickers just a week later.  And we didn't even break a sweat.

So, are you hyped now?  Wanna see our sticker design?  Huh, do ya?  Okay, here it is ~


We think it's kinda cool and this is a message near and dear to our hearts!  Now, if you like it, too and want one of your very own to display, just send us an email with your snail mail addy and we'll pop one in the mail to you.  You don't have to have an automobile to display it on either - you can put it on whatever mode of transportation you have:

Um, not a REAL car, Puddles, sorry.  Mom had one so she KNOWS.

You could put it on your laundry basket OR your luggage.

It would look awesome on your beer cooler/scooter.

 Or your spaceship, if that is your preferred method of transporation - helloooooo, Alien or George, can you hear us in outer space???

Or use it to decorate your playroom a la Frankie:

Thanks Build-A-Sign for helping us get our message out to the world!  Now, if YOU have a great idea for a sticker just contact the very dog-friendly and she will give you all the instructions to make an awesome sticker.Disclaimer:  We should mention that this giveaway is not edible - well, okay we guess it COULD be edible, but probably not very tasty. Maybe we should talk to Build-A-Sign about making these stickers out of that edible stuff they put on cakes! Eureka! Are you listening Build-A-Sign???

Banquet - Part Deux

Let the celebration continue!!!  Although after all the "celebrating" yesterday, I'm not sure if anybody will be able to read this today :)  That was some rockin' party!  And that band!  WOW!  You totally rocked Free Bird, dudes!  None of the bands here in SC will play it anymore.  Seriously.  Some of 'em even have signs they put up that say "Don't ask me to play *#@!&* Free Bird."  We don't know why.

Hope you all enjoyed the beer and cheese and, um, your complimentary bottle of BeanO!  It's gonna take us a couple days to comprehend what happened yesterday (i.e. read all your blogs) but we know it was quite a celebration.  We hoped no animals were harmed during the making of this awesome celebration to honor Bunny, Pip, Puddles and Roo! 

Now on to the second part of our Banquet post.  We have been honored to receive appointment by HIZHONOR MAYOR FRANKIEFURTER as Directors of Travel and Tourism!  We humbly and enthusiastically accept this appointment and do our best to keep you informed of places to visit that are dog friendly, educational fun and offer free treats.  Today we would like to offer some basic pre-travel tips for those of you that might be taking road trips soon.


Well, of course, FOOD is a no-brainer

And, of course, LEASHES!  Places might say they're DOG-FRIENDLY, but ONLY if you're on a LEASH.  People DO NOT like dogs off leash and it could get you and your peeps in big trouble if they catch you off leash - no matter how well-behaved you are.  Check this out:
Read story here and let it be a lesson to you.  Um, we leave it to you to figure out the lesson :)

Oh, yeah, and COLLARS - gotta have something to hook that leash onto.  Here are some stylish options for you from some of our friends.

Happy Dogs Collar from Furry Twang

Black Tie collar from CodysCreations for those places that require a tie.

 Along with proper ID tags.

Now, we know you like your stylish accessories, but we love this tag from LaserBeamCreations and it's more practical for traveling and has lots of room for your important info.

Oh, yeah, don't forget POOP BAGS!  Nobody wants to step in your poop or have to pick it up.  Not even your peeps, but they HAVE to :)


DO NOT drive around like this!

Get new tires if yours look like this!

And, most importantly, if you're on a road trip, this probably means your peeps are behind the wheel and won't be relying on your keen sense of smell and direction.  Trust us, they will need all the help they can get!  So, we highly recommend one of these to find the best places to sniff and pee!
Well, that's all we've got time for today.  Hope these travel tips will get you on your way to an awesome road trip soon!

Have a safe trip!

Banquet - Part One

We're gathering here in Blogville today to honor and celebrate the Race of the Century between our good furiends Pip and Bunny and their coaches Roo and Puddles!  Yay!  We're sure you all saw this Amazing Race, but if you didn't, well, you really must go see it here or here.  Words cannot describe!  We laughed.  We cried.  We shouted with joy.  We're sure you did, too.  And, at the end of the day ~ we had TWO WINNERS!  So, what better way to celebrate this great feat of athleticism than to break out one of Puddles' favorite beverages.  We hijacked this from the SEWE festival last weekend.  So, here's to all of you!

This Bud's for you!  Enjoy!

And it's just not a proper celebration, Southern style, without Peanuts!  So, from us to you, a Southern delicacy we Southerners call BAWLD Peanuts (that's boiled peanuts for you out-of-towners). 


And if you don't like your peanuts bawld, why you can have them deep-fried - another Southern specialty.  We deep-fry just about everything down here - even pickles!

And if you're not huge fans of the peanuts - well, what kinda party would this be without Cheetos! 

And, of course, we have to put a little Southern twist on 'em ~ so enjoy:  Mac & Cheetos Pie!  Yeah, baby!  Is that enough CHEEEEESE for ya?

Um, did anyone remember the BEAN-O???  We're gonna need like - a CASE of the stuff!

So - join in the fun, help yourselves to some snacks, sit back and enjoy the entertainment -- it's going on all weekend long!

And after you've had your fill of cheese and beer, head on over to the AUCTION for Richie and Ronnii here  You can find out more about the auction over at Frankie's place.

And stay tuned for Banquet - Part Two Tomorrow!

Dog Spotting at SEWE

We showed you the talented Dock Dogs from SEWE yesterday, and now we're gonna show you the crowd that came to cheer them on.  There's a buncha pics here.  We totally don't blame you for not looking at all of 'em!

Look closely ~ see anybody you know???

My collar's more sparkly than yours!

Please don't make me jump off that dock in front of all these people, Dad!

Mmmmm, bald peanut shells.

This is the best seat in the house!

Point me to show ring, I'm not a dock dog.

Where's the water???

If I only had long legs.

Synchronized dog moves.

I'm a baby. Why can't I ride in the baby stroller?

Fine.  I'll just pout.

Being this cute is really tiring! 


What are YOU looking at???

What's happening over there?

I said I don't WANNA go!

Hey ladies!  Over HERE!

Just a bite, Mom, please?  I Loooove fried dough!

Not on top of the head, please.

Dude, I SAID not on top of the head!

Just seeing if you're still looking.





Mutt and Jeff

I can't see a darned thing!

Pretty in Pink

I make plaid look GOOD!

George Jefferson - no kidding!  That's his name.

Part Chihuahua - part Italian Greyhound.

Lime green really POPS on my black fur.

I'll race ya!

You think we have enough for a game of poker?

Now THIS is the way to ride!

Does this leash make my butt look big?

Hmmm, your hair smells nice.  Is that Herbal Essences shampoo?

And that's only HALF of them!
