Going for a Mosey

Most dogs go for a walk. But Girl calls it "going for a mosey" because with me, a little jaunt is a pretty slow process. However I was ready to go today! In fact, I was going almost too fast and Girl kept telling me not to run into the cattle guard and get stuck, not to run off into the pond, don't get pooped on by the geese, don't do this, don't do that, blah blah blah.

So while I was trucking around quite jauntily, she took some (crappy) video of our mosey around the pond:

Hmm...the video on the Barkberry just isn't cutting it. Perhaps I'll get the Girl a new phone for our birthday so she can take better pictures and video for my blog!

I don't want you all to think I'm vain (thought that might be true) but my friend @BusyButtons wanted to see more pictures of ME on my blog! So bring out...the Maximus Photo Montage!

Hmm...let's start with my extensive collection of napping photos...

This was from our trip to the Hole in the Wall last summer. I was pooped and couldn't wait to get in the sleeping bag!

Sleeping with my head on the girl's pillow. Hehehe.
A quick nap in the middle of the living room floor.
Sleeping on the recliner in the therapy room at work, waiting for the girl to get out of the far infrared sauna.
Waiting for the girl to come to bed.

These next two pictures are from my "photo shoot" for @trailerparkdogs so they could work on my costumes.

And these are pictures of me chilling at the cabin! Sure beats sleeping on the tent floor like I used to do!

So that's enough pictures of me for now! Thanks for looking!

See ya later!

Thank you @BorisKitty and @TrailerParkDogs!!!

As many of you know, March 13th was...

@BorisKitty, being the considerate cat that he is, threw this pawty in honor of his Human2's birthday. Not only did he throw the pawty, but as an extra birthday present to Human2, the pawty raised over $1000 (the original goal was $500!) for their local shelter! Isn't that amazing?! BIG round of appaws for the generous anipals out there!

The #scifipawty was a lot of fun, with great music, great food, and quizzes and contests with LOTS of pawesome prizes.

Speaking of contests...

I got FIRST PLACE in the Costume Contest! I was so excited, I just couldn't believe it! There were just sooooo many fantabulatastic costumes to choose from, never in a squillion years did I think I would win FIRST! ...But I should have known better, with those awesome dogs up North, those @TRAILERPARKDOGS as my costume designers! I can't thank them enough for making me look so pawesome! Since they are the reason I won, Boris asked if I'd like to give them my prize...and they immediately told me they'd come smack me in the head if I did any such thing! BOL! So to avoid smacks, I just want to say THANK YOU to Coco and Goose for my costume and THANK YOU to BorisKitty for all his hard work putting on this pawty.

I do want to mention the Best In Show prize that was for the Costume pal @ZackRabbit won it and I was so happy! He worked really hard on his pictures and did an amazingazingazing job to please give them a look!

Sunshine Award

A bit ago, my pal @mariodacat gave me the Sunshine Award:

It's taken me a while to blog about it and I didn't want Mario to think I'm ungrateful; it's just hard to pick the bloggers I want to pass the award to!

The point of this award is to pass it to bloggers who bring sunshine into your life. So if you're on my list, you're supposed to pass it onto 12 more bloggers who make you smile!

Drumroll please... (these are in no particular order)
1. OllyTed - This bear specializes in smiles and sunshine!
2. Bernice Blu'Jae - Sock monkeys are all about sunshine and picnics
3. SpencerTeddy - This little bear brings sunshine with his pictures of his adventures
4. Dixie_Belle - Sunshiney stories ranging from everyday antics to the rehabilitation of Dixie Belle's sisfur.
5. Ri_Guy - I actually chose Riley because he NEEDS some sunshine right now! He's going through a very hard time so please go to his blog and give him your support and encouragement.
6. Dogstoyevsky - Lexie's blog about her life on a BOAT is interesting and brings sunshine to my days.
7. Kolo_Martin - Kolo is a great pal who blogs about hugs AND donates very thoughtful prizes for pawties! Definitely sunshiney!
8. Aska_Alaska - She doesn't live in Alaska, but in Japan and her adventures always bring a sunshine smile to my face.
9. JazzyDaCat - If Jazzy's norty step doesn't make you have sunshine smiles, well, I can't even imagine that.
10. LittleManFestus - Festus just recently started blogging, but his posts are sunshine-worthy!
11. BusyButtons - Whenever I'm feeling down, I always hope Buttons has a new post up because her sunshiney antics cheer me right up!
12. BigSkyMonte & BigSkyKai - My neighbors the Big Sky Siblings need to blog more and send me some of their Montana sunshine!

The Furry Friend Award

My dear friend @pirulofurry gave me this award:

And this is what he said:

"Ola kala is a greek phrase that means "everything's good"; it's one of the etymologies that have been proposed for okay (OK). Okey?

Ah, what do you think about it? Here are the rules:
1. This award will be given to bloggys of furry friends that do or have done things to make the world around them a better one. Those actions don't have to be big ones. Sometimes small things are what we need to be a little more happy each day.

2. Each furry friend that receives this award, have to tell 3 things that he or she does or have done to make the world around them better.

3. Each one has to pass it on to another 5 or more furry friends (as many as you want); those furry friends can be cats, dogs, rabbits, hamsters or any other furrything."

So now...what do I do to make the world better? Hmmm...I beg The Girl for a bite of her food whenever she's eating. Oh wait, that makes my world better, not THE world better.

Okay, how about this:
1) I write this blog to bring smiles to my readers. Or try to bring smiles.

2) I make The Girl donate to charities and pawpawties on occasion when we have a few cashes to spare.

3) When The Girl is sad I do extra funny cuddly things to make her laugh. I know that's only making one person's world better, but without her, I wouldn't have a world at all. Yipes!

Soooo who should I give this to?

1. He was the first anipal to come to mind; heck the name of @mattiedog's blog is A Little Dog Making A Big Impact! This award is perfect for him.

2. @Poooldiii makes my world better with great recipes!

3. @ZackRabbit does so many creative things to make people smile.

4. When I think of anipals who make the world a better place, I think of @FrugalDougal!

5. @OllyTed worked tirelessly to put on the Teddy Olympics and bring smiles to anipals, even non-teddies.

As my friend Piru always says...
Ola Kala!
