We Got Pressies!

This has been a kind of exciting week!  First up - PRESSIES!
We had such a BLAST at Wyatt's County Fair / Birthday Party!  That roller coaster ride was something else!  AND to TOP it off - we won a BLUE RIBBON and some super special prizes for our flower entry!  And that's saying something coming from Wyatt and his supergreen paw!  Hmmm, now we're wondering if maybe we were the ONLY entry in the Flower Category.  BOL!  Well, no matter . . . we've got a BLUE RIBBON and some great pressies so we're not gonna ask any questions :)

See our beautiful BLUE RIBBON! 
It says "ROAD DOGS" but the sun's so bright you can't really see that.  It's hanging on our fridge now, so everybody can see it!

Now, we don't get mail that often, so we're not as clever as some of you about opening it.  BUT, we do figure if it's on the floor - it's OURS!  Mom did have to help open the box, but after that - we knew exactly what to do with everything!

MOM! We could use some help here!

Our photographer can't keep up with the action - blurry photos!  Note to photographer:  Use "action" setting on the camera next time!

O-KAY!  Now we know what to do!

Kayla goes right for the treats!

She didn't need much help getting in that box!  Yummmmm. . . .

 Cooper goes right for the tennis ball, of course!  And this isn't just your run-of-the-mill tennis ball - it SQUEAKS, too!

He proceeds to make it his own by slobbering on it so much that nobody else will touch it!

SIT!  STAY!  Good ball!

Taz goes for the squeaky hamburger!  He LOVES squeaky toys!

Mmmm, good hamburger!

Hmmm, how did the Coop get that hamburger?  OMD - he's the HAMBURLAR! BOL!

Aspen doesn't go in much for the opening of the pressies and she's totally indignant over this current humiliation! 
Shepherds are way too dignified for this nonsense!

MORGAN - HELP!  Why do they insist on treating us like this!?  Can't we report them to someone?
Blowing a raspberry at the whole undignified episode!  But she did like those treats!  And she would love to play with that squeaky tennis ball if Cooper ever leaves it unattended for a minute!


Okay, that was a lots of pics, but we have one more.  Now, everyone knows this is NOT Mom's blog, but since she's too lazy to write one of her own, we're gonna share a tiny bit of space with her 'cause this is kind of exciting for her, PLUS it IS dog related.  MODERN DOG MAGAZINE picked one of her dog-themed necklaces to feature on their "STUFF WE LOVE" page in the Fall 2011 issue (just now on newstands).  It's in the print version as well as the web version of the magazine and Mom just wants to say a BIG thanks to Karin over at Modern Dog for loving it!

 Okay, that's it for today.  We must go rest up for the BACK-TO-SCHOOL BASH this weekend!  It's gonna be another BLAST and we hope everyone has a chance to stop by for a bounce in the BOUNCE HOUSE!

Backcountry Brodie said...

Taz, you did not slobber up the burger enuff! You has to write MINE all ofur it with your drools like Cooper did with his ball. Not like us dignified shepherds would know anything about that. So nice of you to share your bloggie with your mom to show her bootiful necklace. She do be famuss now.

Angels Amber and Max DaWeenie and Mom said...

That's a beautiful necklace.

And all your pressies are great too. Good Job!

Wyatt said...

I'm so glad that you liked your pressies. It was a little hard for me to box them up...Mom had to keep telling me that it was better to give than to receive. I have a hard time wrapping my furry brain around that concept...BOL

I'm going to have to save my Milkbone money for one on those necklaces fur my Mom. Those are so special!!

What a great winnings you had. I missed the whole thing and I am pretty upset with My Vickie.

I would have loved to go to the fair.

coop, good work on the ball control. I learned a while ago how slobber lends to possesion.

See you guys at the bash

Amazing dogs! It's fulfilling to get recognitions such as this. All the hard work in training them paid off. Good job to all of you!
