Happy Howlidays!

Hi everyone!
Today our parents made us pose with this really strange person they called Santa Claws. He was very merry and kept saying Ho Ho Ho. Don't really know what its all about but Mommy tells me we're going to be getting some fun stuff in the mail soon for some kind of a Christmas card. Something about a new stuffy for each of us? Anyways, we're supposed to wish everyone Happy Howlidays! Here's our picture of us with our parents and the weird Santa Claws guy. Hope you're all having fun in the snow!

Jack is lost!

Jack made his way back to our Brother's house early this morning. His paws are chewed up from walking all night and he is pretty scared, but is otherwise ok. Thank goodness.
-Jack's relieved Mommy

HELP! Jack got loose this afternoon from our brothers house in Sumner, Washington and we can't find him! Please send word to all of your friends in the Seattle area of Washington to keep an eye out for Jack! He was wearing his spiked collar when he got lost. He is very skittish and is unlikely to come to people when called. Please contact the Sumner Police Dept. if you spot him so we can be contacted to come pick him up. Please spread the word!

It's Jack's Birthday!

Wow! I can't believe that today is my second birthday! Daddy came home with an awesome present for me!

A new collar!

Oh I can't wait!

Wow! Don't I look "studdly"?

After Daddy gave me my new collar he showed me the awesome cake Mommy and Daddy baked me!

It looks so good!

Here goes the first bite...

Oh my gosh it tastes amazing!

Oops! Dropped some on the floor.

Mmmm....lickin up my crumbs.

After I was finished eating, I realized that even Abby was going to get some of my cake! I was a bit upset, but I guess Abby did share some of her cupcakes with me from her birthday party, so I guess I can't be too upset.

I think she liked it too.

It was pretty nummers...

She was a good girl and licked up her crumbs as well.

Thanks again Mommy and Daddy for the best birthday ever!

Oh, Mommy and Daddy want me to mention that Abby won the Kong contest! Can you believe it, just because she was the messiest Kong eater ever, she won some stupid prize. Sheesh. Oh well, my collar is still the coolest.

The river!

Hey guys! We got to play in the river last weekend and it was awesome! I, of course, played fetch with my water toys the entire time and Jack was too much of a Scaredy-Cat to do anything besides wading, but I know he had fun too.
C'mon Mom, throw it all ready!

This is the coolest floating frisbee!

All right! Almost to shore.

Hey! I was the one who fetched this! Leave it alone Jack!

Well fine! I was having more fun sniffing rocks anyhow...

I just love the river!

This bumper toy is cool too! Momma can throw it all the way to other side of the river!

I like carrying it with both the string and the bumper in my mouth.

Jack, leave my butt fringe alone so I can swim in peace.

Best part of the day, shaking out all the sandy water.

Cousin Daisy

Cousin Daisy made the trip to Rainbow Ridge today. We will miss her greatly and will always remember all of the good times we had with our friend. She was a wonderful dog and our Mommy's best friend for many years and will always be in our hearts. We love you Cousin Daisy and are glad you aren't suffering any more.

Food dish disaster

Look at what I have been reduced to eating out of.

Not only do I have to eat out of this patheticly cheap piece of human plasticware, but I also have to drink out of Abby's water dish! I swear these parents of mine better whip into shape soon. First they submit me to the horror of the VETS office, and now this!

It all started innocently enough. My daddy took me on a trip this weekend to keep him company while he built a wheelchair ramp for his Grandma. This part of the trip was basically fine, except the heat was horrible. It was above 100 degrees. Every. Single. Day. Then we went and visited Cousin Leah and Cousin Daisy! Cousin Leah is doing great and while Daisy has still lost some weight she seems to be doing okay for now. The biggest suprise was that Cousin Daisy had a new member of the family! A puppy! Grandpa and Grandma bought a Lab/Golden Retriever mix puppy named Buddy! He tried stealing my bone at one point and of course he was pesky like all puppies are, but I suppose he's all right.

After meeting Buddy and playing with Cousin Leah one last time, it was time to go home. Daddy packed everything into the back of the truck and covered it all with a tarp. He had left my food dish and stand out so that I could eat and drink while waiting. I supposed this at least was kinda nice of him. Anyways, Daddy had to move the truck so Grandma could go someplace, so he put my food dish and stand in the back of the truck, on TOP of the tarp. He then completely forgot about my most important possesion, my food dish! While driving home, the wind caught the tarp, whipping it up and catapulting my food stand! My food sprayed all over the road, my food dish went flying, and the stand actually hit the semi truck that was driving behind us! I was so embarrassed! Daddy apologized to the truck driver and we continued on home. I, of course, am completely humiliated and am very upset.

Eating out of this container is ridiculous and a magnificent mastiff such as I should never be submitted to horror such as this.

Anyone want a new Daddy?

Puberty sucks...

Jack - For the past week or so, I have had these sores on my muzzle.
They kinda itch and kinda hurt but I wasn't too worried about them. But when my face broke out again last night and this morning they were definitely hurting me, Daddy did the unthinkable. He took me to the vet! They tried to get a good look at my face but I made sure Daddy protected me from the evil vet lady and they did not once manage to touch me! HA! Unfortunately, the vet lady said that I had something called Canine Acne and they gave me a bunch of shots and now I have to have green things shoved down my throat twice a day and nasty stuff gooped on my face. I cannot believe Daddy would submit me to such torture. Apparently, Doggy Zits can cause problems because I might start actually chewing on my lips and breaking all the sores with my feet. Still though, must I suffer the humiliation of vet visits and the resulting treatment? Not fair, not fair at all.

Bliss for the While...

Hey buddies! These are our potential pictures for the Kong contest that Amber-Mae is hosting! We liked all of these but in the end, Mommy chose the last one of Abby to enter in the contest. For the contest, you enter in a photo of yourself enjoying the Kong toy and have 20-40 words to use as a caption/poem/limerick to go with the photo. So go get your Kongs and get your parents to take your photo. Then vote for your photo and ours to win! (We each get two votes!) Happy Eating! Jack-I hate sharing, but Mommy made me.
Jack-I am so much cuter than Abby with my big pink Mastiff tongue.
Abby-Your tongue may be bigger, but my photo made it into the contest, so HA!

The caption for my photo:

I love to be chewin' on my Kong.
I could play with it all day long!
Filled to the brim,
In peanut butter I will swim.
It makes my tongue tired,
And my whiskers become mired.
But my lips form a smile,
And I'm in bliss for the while.

A new fence!

Hey everyone! Inspector Abby and Inspector Jack here! We have been giving our Daddy a hard time about how unstable and unsafe the fence in our yard is. The dog Daddy had before us was named Scout and she was a bit hard on the fence. A couple of times, Daddy would be out in the front yard talking to a neighbor and would leave Scout in the backyard alone! Scout thought this was completely unacceptable, so she would punch right through the gates, taking them straight off the hinges! That way, she could be with Daddy and get pets from the neighbor! You can't blame her, it was Daddy's fault she wasn't getting his undivided attention!

Here's a picture of Scout from a few years ago. Isn't she gorgeous! Jack never got to meet her but Abby was her best buddy for six months before she made the trip to Rainbow ridge. Anyways, because of her love for Daddy, our fence was in very sad shape. The fence on the left side of our house was only standing up beause Daddy had propped it up using some beams and plywood.

The gate on the other side of the house was barely holding on by its hinges and was sagging very badly. This was the gate Scout took clean off by ramming it with her head.

See how much it leans?

Look at Daddy's silly patch job!

So Daddy and Mommy went and bought some new posts and fence boards and got to work on digging the holes for the new fence posts. We of course are always watching to make sure Daddy is doing things properly. We won't accept any more leaning fences! It was really warm that day, so Daddy took off his shirt and wrapped it around Inspector Jack so he would look like an official inspector, which of course he is.

Make sure you get the holes deep enough Daddy!

Um, Daddy? I know you're busy with those posts and all, but my uniform is falling off.

Thanks Daddy, much better.

I think you need to go a bit deeper with that one Daddy.

Wow! Starting to look like a new fence!

Let me just make sure this gate is straight and sturdy.

Yup! Lookin' good!

Make sure you trim those fence boards to the right height!

Well Daddy, you have the approval of Inspector Abby and Inspector Jack. Great job!

No more saggy fences for these pooches!

You did such a great job Daddy!

Thanks Daddy! We love you!
