Is it live, or is it Memorex

Tucker Guard Duty, Sleepy Daisy and Prayers for Benson

Tucker likes to keep a good eye on whatever is going on in the yard. This is his window.
Mommy says she has to keep washing the windowsill where he balances his chin.
"Tuck, what's out there?"
"Well, I guess nothing I have to worry about."
"But I will stay close by just in case."
Mommy took these pictures at bedtime with flash. Had to squint.
"But at least I have my birthday bone."

On a sad note, our friend Benson from Thoughts fur paws is not feeling well. We have seen notes on his blog from many of our friends, but if you have not met him, or stopped by, maybe you can send him and his mom Jaime and brother Gibson some good wishes.

Without futher ado, the winners are Gus, Louie and Callie, The Three Happy Heelers.

Birthday gifts, part 2

Our friend Cathy, who works with Mom, sent some birthday gifts for Daisy the other day.
Look at that pretty wrapping paper.

And a nice card. Another cat that looks like Leo, but I still don't think he would wear that hat.

I got a new blanket. I love new blankets.

Sammie said we should have a contest to guess what Daisy is carrying.

Cathy sent some yummie treats for us too.

We have been in such birthday mode lately that Tucker has sort of been left out of the blog, so Mommy said we should put in some pictures of him.

Such a handsome, happy boy.

And we do love each other.

Birthday contest post.- Amended version

We forgot someone and needed to change a picture, so here is a corrected version.

We have had so many entries for Daisy's Friends Forever contest. The first was Sammie and June.

They suggested we visit their friend Kane, at Shutzhund Adventures. They also introduced us to their Mom's sister Rebecca, and their adorable cousin Grace.

Then Miss Khyra posted on her blog about the contest. That got us lots of new friends.

Those included the 2 she introduced us to, Ozzie and his fur sister Dief, both Siberians who blog.

Socks, Scylla, Charybdis & Fenris came after seeing us on Khyra's blog. They are three kitties and a dog.

They introduced us to Dakota, Phantom and Thunder, the OP Pack at The Chronicle of Woos, more nice Sibes.

The OP pack decided to enter too, and introduced us to even more Sibes, the gang of six at The Thundering Herd. We may need to apply for honorary Sibe status with all these new friends. Maybe Khyra can set us up.

Through Khyra's post we also met Checkers, a nice little Peek-a-Poo.

Checkers introduced Luke, a nice Golden friend of ours. We had considered introducing him ourselves, so we are glad Checkers did the honors for us. This is Luke and his brother the Bleu.

Next we met Daphne and Pruett, who are brother and sister German Shepards at GSD Adventures. Sorry, we couldn't borrow a good picture of them. The suggested a few new friends. One was their brother Cooper. The others are Stanislaw and Big Pupi, two cute Cocker Spaniels of I Eat Raw Meat.

The next new friend is Ludo, the adorable Sheltie.

Ludo introduced us to his friend Reilly, another cute Sheltie. Reilly has cow spots.

Then we met the Three Happy Heelers, Gus, Louie and Callie. Our Mommy was glad to meet them, because Mommy's sister used to have a nice Heeler.

They introduced us to their new friend Stump, another heeler. If you visit, check out her blog name, it is great.

From the Heelers, we met a great cat, Bruce. He lives in South Florida, like we used to, and helps in his Dad's shop.
Bruce introduced us to a beautiful snowshoe cat cat named Luna.

The next entry is from our good friends The Bumpass Hounds (go Sox). There are so many of them we are not going to try and post pictures, go and visit and see for yourself.

They introduced us to Travis, who looks like a fun guy who hosts lots of contests. We seem to have a lot of friends in common.

One of our best Golden friends, Mason Dixie, also made an entry.

Mason Dixie introduced us to Abbey and Bosley of Sarcastic Sunshine.

When we visited their blog, we found out that they had entered the contest. They introduced our mutual friends, Gus and Waldo. A great choice.

Then some new friends, JD and Max, a pair of cute schnauzers, came by to visit and enter the contest. They introduced us to their friend Finn, a German Shepard.

We got at entry from our good friends Joey and Zekie. Joey was too embarassed to talk about his girlfriend Lacie, so Zekie did it for him. We have heard lots of things about Lacie, we will have to check out her blog and see for ourselves.

Next up is our kitty friend, the beautiful Huffle Mawson.

Huffle introduced us to a beautiful Birman kitty named Batu Khan.

Another new friend that we have seen around is Suzuki.

She introduced us to a cute Japanese Spitz named Charlie.

Last, but certainly not least are our friends Luna and Elizabeth. Luna is a gorgeous young Golden.

Luna introduced our mutual friend Farley, who was another friend we thought about introducing, so we are glad she let everyone know about him.

We are so glad we had so many entries to our contest. It was so much fun to meet some new friends. We were interested to see that no one introduced the same friends. Some of our current friends were introduced, but they were mostly lesser known ones that we are glad to have showcased.

Mommy is concerned that she might have missed somebody who entered by the deadline when she helped me put this post together, so we are going to put the drawing off until Friday. If we missed you and you entered, please leave us a comment or e-mail us at by Friday and we will add you. Otherwise, Internet permitting we will announce the winners on Friday.

Birthday Presents !!!!!!!

The other day Mommy came in from work and brought all these things with her.

She said they were presents for my birthday, but Mason Dixie addressed hers to Tucker too, so we let him help open the. Leo always has to stick his nose in too.
Mommy helped me open Mason's package, because I get too exited. Look what she sent us. A great stuffie.
I love the stuffie, but she sent some great Air Dog toys too, and you can see I love those, Iam holding one I already had in one of the other pictures.
This video is my saying thanks to Mason Dixie for the great presents. Thanks for being my friend. Sorry I keep running in and out, I get so excited it is hard to stay still.
The other big box had this beautiful present from my handsome Milo. Isn't it beautiful?
Can I open it yet Mom?
Hmmm, there must be good stuff in here.
Milo sent this cute card. Inside it said I should be pampered all the time. I wish he could come and pamper me, and let me pamper him.

There were also these cute cupcake dog cookies.
Tucker and I really liked them.
There was also a Happy Birthday Bandana, and this pretty stuffie.
Isn't it nice?
But what I really like is this purple ball stuffie. It's the best ever.
I had to keep it close to me at all times.
So tired from all the excitement, falling asleep with my purple ball.
Then Daddy came home, and I had to show him the purple ball.
Here's my thank you video to Milo. I love you Milo, thank you and Paco and Simona for my wonderful presents. Thanks to all my friends for all their good wishes.
My contest post is taking a long time to put together, but we haven't forgotten and will get it up soon.
