Plans Have Changed

We were originally supposed to drive up and fetch Uncle Puppy for the Doggy Nanny on Friday. Well Grandma got the day off today and Mrs. Welch said she would be able to meet us....So We hit the road and are on our way to Missouri. Doggy Nanny doesn't know that we are going to fetch Uncle Puppy today and are going to surprise on Friday morning. Please keep our secret.

Lady Bug Luck?!?!?

Many people say that if a lady bug lands on you that you will have good luck. Well come the end of the end of the week I think we will need all the luck we can get!
(This is one of our previous Halloween Photo Shoots. It features our wonderful Aunt Dolly. Aunt Dolly was Doggy Nanny's doggie)

Want to know why? Its about 3-4 pounds, has wavy hair, has super sharp teeth, and has floppy ears!

Thats right Uncle Puppy will arrive at our Doggy Nanny's house on Friday April 30th. Doggy Nanny and Tigger (Doggy Nanny's Husband) are both super excited. They both miss their previous foster pups Maggie and Hunny and glad this one theirs to keep furever!

We also have a special theme for next week! Can't wait to share it with you all.

Storm Stories

After we got home from the Quilt Show on Friday momma watched the news and saw we were going to get some bad storms through out the overnight hours. Well we live in a mobile home and it get very noisy and with high winds it all makes grandma a bit crazy and she is unable to sleep. So to remedy this problem we have a sleep over party at out local hotel.

With the quilt show the prices were double but they have an open door policy for doggies so its the best place to stay.

We checked the pee-mail.

Here is our room #207.

....waiting on grandma to get up here with the key.

After we got settled we headed out to buy snacks and get some ice.

OH MY! What is that?
(For those who don't like buggies....please close your eyes and scroll down past the next photo.)

EEK! Its a big ol' spider!

The next morning after our sleepover we had a break in the weather but knew more thunder boomers, high winds and heavy winds were coming so we went to stay at Tigger's (Doggy Nanny's husbands) office.

We brought out bed and all was good!

We went outside to watch the storm roll in.

Look at those clouds.

Its getting close!

Mid afternoon we did have a break in the rain and took a quick run to a local craft store to get some thread. While inside momma found a new toy to buy.

She bought a rotary cutter and cutting mats. She had heard people talking about them at the quilt show and just had to have one. But momma and grandma got lots of sewing done while we were at Tigger's office. (Yes they tool all their material, sewing machine, and sewing tools)

Hmmm...Could that fabric have anything to do with next weeks theme?

At 4 pm we got the all clear for the weather and headed home. It may be silly but its better than staying at home and having to listen to all the thunder boomers and high winds.

Quilt City USA!

Hello furiends! Today I would like to tail you a tail of my adventure to the Paducah, KY Quilt Show! Every year at the end of April Paducah, KY hosts the annual quilt show. Expert quilters bring the quilts to be judged. They even win pretty ribbons. There are tons of fabric vendors and that is where most people spend their time. On the news they say that Paducah doubles its population during the quilt show. How cool is that! Pauducah is also home to the Quilt Museum.
(Bobo was spending the day with the Doggy Nanny)

First we stopped by the AMM (Automatic money machines) and got some money.

Then we hit the down town area!

These ladies were nice enough to take their picture with me...but it seems momma cut their head out of the picture...BOL

Here is me and Lilac posing by the quilt museum. Biggify to see us...We are very tiny next to the big sign.

Look at this lil blankie...Awww its a puppy!

Momma got lotsa inspiration by the quilts that lined the walls of the fabric stores.

I liked watching the quilters go by with big bags of material.

Many of them put their bags down to stop and say hello to me!

Momma found lots of unique dog fabric. She also found lots of fabric that will make some barktastic collars!

After hitting all of the stores I got furry tired.

Yet once we hit the outdoor restaurant I perked back up! I even got a few bites.

After filling our bellies we hit two more stores.

Momma just loved this quilt!

Look at all the fabric she bought!

Alright I am most tired and must take a nap in my crate. Later I will drag out all the fun fabric momma bought and show all of you.

A Boneafide Product Review: Heartworm Preventative

Ever since I, Bobo, was a wee tiny lil boy I have been taking the heartworm Preventative Heartgard. My vet Dr. Flanary said it would keep my heart free of the yucky heartworms and keep me healthy. When Mollie Jo joined our family we had her tested for heartworms (test was negative) and she was put on Heartgard too. For many years it kept us safe.

One day we were picking up some Heartgard and noticed a new sign advertising a generic heartworm preventative called Iverhart Max. Momma asked about it and the vet tech said that it is the same ingederience as Heartgard just in a pill form instead of chewable. Well Momma decided to do her own research before purchasing it.

She went on the Iverhart Max Website and found that is it the same ingederient (ivermectin) for heartworms. It also listed other medicines that take care of many other worms listed below in the comparison chart.

So after much debate betwen momma and grandma they decided that we would try the new medicine. We made the switch back in November 2009 and haven't had one problem since.

Now Heartgard has one positive that its a beef chewable. Iverhart Max is a small tan pill...and you know how ruff it is for pups to take pills....but momma wraps it up in a small piece of that makes it all better.

Iverhart Max is on average about 3.25 a pill verses 4.50 a pill for Heartgard. With two dogs that is a difference that really adds up since we keep them on it year round. Now we don't heartworm test yearly or bi-yearly, but plan in November to get tested to see if one year on Iverhart Max has kept us heartworm free. We will let you know how that goes then.

Overall we give Iverhart Max a A+. Its our prefered heartworm medicine!

***Disclaimer: Do not switch heartworm medicines before consulting your vet. Your vet may or may not require a heartworm test before allowing you to switch to the new medicine. Heartworm medicine must be give every month on the same day to fully protect your pet.

Butterfly Facts

Hello furiends! Well today we will be sharing some interesting facts today about butterflies!

-Butterflies can see red, green, and yellow.

-Many butterflies can taste with their feet.

-Butterflies can attain a flight speed of up to 50 kph.

-There are about 28,000 known Butterfly species throughout the world.

-Butterflies and insects have their skeletons on the outside of their bodies, called the exoskeleton. This protects the insect and keeps water inside their bodies so they don’t dry out.

-Butterflies cannot fly if their body temperature is less than 86 degrees.

-Pollen gets attached to the legs of the Butterfly and is carried from plant to plant, assisting in fertilization and the propagation of new seeds and plants.

Wow...Who knew that! Well the two butterflies featured in todays post were captured by our mom while they were sitting on our lilac bush. We think they are both swallow tails but not 100% sure.

We got some surprising news from a fellow blogger. We did not know that some birds eat butterflies. So we went stright out and moved it to a branch on the lilac bush. We have seen the butterflies going to the lilac bush but not yet to the feeder. We think maybe its the old nectur we had we will be getting some new soon. Even after butterfly week we will post any new pictures of the butterflies in our yard.

We hope that you enjoyed Butterfly week.

Ok...Now like 3 weeks ago we promised you a boneafide product review of heart worm preventatives. Well it kept getting bumped....but it is scheduled for tomorrow. We hope that it maybe able to help some puppy somewhere.
