Petsmart Birthday Party '09


Mollie and her goody bag


On April 21 2009 Petsmart held it's annual birthday party. They take pictures, give goody bags, and play games. The goody bags were filled with ziggys(Mollie's Favorite), dog food samples, and a puzzle. After taking pictures and digging into the goody bag my mother and Mollie participated in the musical chairs. When the music starts you and your dog walk around until the music stops. The last pup to sit is eliminated from the game. Mollie placed second in "small dogs" group and third in "all dogs" group. The winner for the "small dogs" group was a 7 week old toy poodle puppy. We had a wonderful time and after all the fun and games were over we went shopping. We ended up buying name plates for both Mollie and Bobo's crates, a collapsible dog bowl for our doggie bag, a dog luggage tag for the dogs suitcase, and a blue stroller for Bobo when we go to the local flea markets.

Obama Family Dog

The Obama's have finally gotten a dog. The new dog is a 6 month old purebred Portuguese Water Dog named Bo. Bo was born and bred at a kennel in near Dallas TX, and was one of ten puppies in the litter. He was originally sold to a family in Washington DC, but was returned because the arrangements didn't work out as planned. Sen. Ted Kennedy was the person who arranged for the Obama family to get Bo. Coinsidently Bo's leneage is linked to Sen. Kennedy's own Portuguese Water Dogs.

Many americans are upset to hear that Obama family dog didn't come from a breed specific rescue or shelter. The Obama family is making a donation to District of Columbia Humane Society.
