Monday Morning Errand

A few weeks ago we got a blue doggie sized table and chair set. Oh and Milshelb yes they are from Ikea. So we could do indoor photo shoots and such. Well momma has always hated the lighting when we do indoor shots so she did some research and found out there are new light bulbs called Compact Florescent Lights (CFL) and have a special style called "daylight bulbs". So I hopped in the car and we...

...went to my favorite home improvement store. LOWES.

My my there are so many lights bulbs of all shapes and sizes. Who knew?!?!?!

Hey that package says "daylight".

According to the internets they put extra brightness in them so you get a bright white light.

We paid the lady some green papers and got our bulbs.

On the way out I spotted a super fun looking play set. I asked momma but she said it wouldn't fit in the car.

So when we got home we replaced the old incandescent bulb, seen here, with the new CFL Daylight bulb and whoa puppies did it make a difference. Our indoor shots not longer have that yellow tint.

Now I don't recommend these "daylight" bulbs for everyday use. They are super bright but for photo shoots, home studios, or crafting rooms they are the best!! I also like how they fill the entire room with light.
Plus the new CFL bulbs are curly as a pugs tail which is too cute! BOL

Lilac is HOME!!!

You read the title right Lilac is home! Uncle Puppy found her at his house and took him straight to Doggy Nanny. I do kinda feel bad bouts blaming him but you have seen the trail of distruction before. Anyhoo! Lilac told me that she got scared when we were doing a photo shoot and ran and hid. Then we left and she didn't know what to do so she wandered around for days lonely and frightened. I missed her very much and I am so happy to have her back. She did sustain some injuries during her time away. She has a sprained leg and has a badly damaged ear. I used my first aid kit to bandage her up.

Then I wrote a note to Uncle Puppy...

...and bought a box of Milkbones as his reward.

Thank You Uncle Puppy

Good Bye Uncle Puppy

On the Lilac front, no new leads. Along with my blog furiends I too think a certain large cockapoo had something to do with it! And look at the mess he has made with my toys while he has been staying here. Momma has been has been cleaning up twice a day. hmmm...Has sheep been on his menu?

Mollie why you blame innocent ol' me?

In other news...

This morning you will never believe who called! Yep Doggy Nanny. She is almost home!!!

So I went to wake Uncle Puppy from his nap and told him the good news.

Oh boy Oh boy my momma and daddy are coming home! Lets go!

It was such an emotional reunion that Uncle Puppy had a tinkle accident in the kitchen. BOL the boy missed his momma!

Doggy Nanny brought back many cool things from her trip.

They went to Florida and saw the "Doodle Boys". They are way awsome pooches that pose for pics and the money collected goes to a charity.

Doggy Nanny also brought back toys! Good thing as we needed a fresh supply.

I got a Mollie-sized furry toy! Thanks Doggy Nanny

Are these orange tennis balls????

No? Are you sure? Well Doggy Nanny cut one up and can you believe its a fruit called tangerine?!!? Hmmm...Not as exciting as a tennis ball but Grandma seemed to like them.

I think I will stick to the CHEESE PRETZEL!

Mollie thanks fur letting me stay with yous but I am soooo furry glad to be home!

Hotel with 4 Dogs

A couple of nights ago we had some pretty ruff weather coming our way so as you all know we can't stay in the tin box we call home during storms and off to the hotel we went. Now this wasn't your average hotel night we had 2 squatters with us. YIKES!

Hurry open that door my furs can't get wet!!!!

No sooner than we got in and seated the rain poured and the wind blew with furry!

Uncle Puppy was quite fascinated with the activity of people walking by his window.

With torn-ma-does watches being placed over the entire area we put all of our belongings in the bathroom and put a blanket in the tub just in case we had to dive in. Then we sat and waited fur the storms to hit...

...and we put a leash on Uncle Puppy as he is not known for his listening skills. If we had to take cover we would be able to get him in there quickly.

Torn-ma-does Warnings came up all around us but never in our counties. Thank DOG!

Around Midnight all the weather had moved East and out of our area. We were safe so we unleashed everyone and got ready fur bed. Cinnamon was curious as to what to do next, this was all new to her. Guess her last mommy never took her to a hotel.

We refereed her to Uncle Puppy.
Its sleepy time tiny one!

And he is out!!!!!

Well going to the hotel with 4 dogs was not as bad as we imagined but not something we hope to do in the near future. BOL

Lilac: Still Missing

Missing Sheep Alert!!!

APB: LOST Sheep Alert! Lilac (pictured below) is missing. I is very worried about her! She is about 4 inches tall and has curly purple furs. She was last seen Saturday morning Jan 21st 2012. She was helping us pack to go for a photo shoot and has not been seen since. At the time of her disappearance she was not wearing a collar/tag and is not microchipped!!!!

I am willing to pay 250 milk bones for her safe return.

Mollie Jo the Poodle Model

Dear Furiends at the Marshall County Co-op,

My name is Mollie Jo. I am an 11 yr old rescue poodle. I lived my first years as a breeding dog, once I was rescued at the age of 3 I found my love of modeling, blogging and TOYS! I love your tv commercials with the two shopping doggies. I myself am a doggie shopper and love that you are a dog friendly store. My favorite aisle is the toy aisle.
On the other paw, I am very well trained...
...and love to dance.
Over the years I have met the WKYQ bunny, Jennifer Horbelt (news anchor of WPSD Local 6), and Shorty Rossi (Animal Planet's Pit Boss). One of my dreams would be to be in one of your commercials. I do have experience on set and in front of the camera.

If you ever need another doggie for your commercials please keep me in mind!

Wags and Licks,
Mollie Jo

Grooming Gone Wrong

Usually momma grooms us but we had a photoshoot to do and since it was last minute we couldn't go to Mrs. Annette as she was out of appointments. So we went to a new grooming salon. Now its a furry bad memory so we shall let momma tell you bouts it.

I hated to to use a new groomer but they needed to be groomed for a bunch of new photo shoots and I wanted a professional groom for the shoots. So we made an appointment, packed up the doggie bag...

...and headed out.

Mollie was so cute sleeping on the ride over.

Just before 8AM we arrived at Wren's Pet Lodge. We used to take them here but since then a new owner has taken over.

After they checked the pee-mail we headed inside.

The place looked clean, they used a hand dryer instead of a box dryer, the groomer was very friendly and listened to what we wanted done. I felt good about leaving them there.

A couple of hours later the groomer called and said they were ready. When I arrived I saw Mollie sitting by her self and Bobo was no where to be found. When the groomer came up front she said Mollie had pooped in the cage and Bobo had to be moved to another cage. I know she didn't have to use the bathroom as that morning she ate breakfast and pooped when I took her out. So something there upset her so bad that she had diarrhea in her cage. Upon closer inspection of this photo Mollie is sitting on wire bottom floor which at 11 years old should not be happening. The groomer said the blanket we brought for them to sit on had been pooped on so it was being washed.

And this pic speaks for itself of what Bobo thought of the place. LOL

Of course Mollie is not to be left out.

Once we got them home I looked at the groom job more carefully and was shocked. It didn't look as though she even put a blade to their legs, paws or under arms. It looked like a rush job and they smelled as though they didn't get a bath. Then I looked at their topknots and was sick. The entire back of Mollie's topknot was shaved extremely close, it was uneven and one ear was WAY shorter than the other. Bobo had a half dollar sized shaved spot in his top knot. Thankfully he had enough topknot left to do a comb over and its not too visible. The rest of the day Mollie's tummy was upset. The blanket we took was not cleaned just stuffed in a bag with the mess still all over it. Sadly it had to be tossed in the garbage.

I talked with my mom (Mollie and Bobo's Grandma) about the situation and she agreed that we should seek a refund. So I went back with Mollie and Bobo and they did not even want to enter the building, they stepped back and pulled away. I told her what I found and she agreed to give me a full refund. I hate going and complaining but $60 for a bad hair cut is no not right! As we opened the door to leave Mollie pulled so hard to get out of the building that she yanked the leash right out of my hand and went straight for the car door. Mollie is normally extremely good on the leash.

The following Monday I had to groom them myself. When I got the clippers out and put them on the table all did they was shake through the entire process. Which is not normal for them.

Not only did she do a horrible job in grooming my dogs but she either hurt or scared them to the point that Mollie was literally sick.

After grooming them I didn't know how to fix Mollie's top knot so I made an appointment with Mrs. Annette for the following week.

Now I will turn this post back over to Mollie Jo.
Thanks momma!

Since having my bad hair cut I had to wear a hat everywhere I went. Even for a quick pee pee run.

Thankfully Mrs. Annette was able to squeeze me in and do rehab on me head!

We're here!

I gots a bit nervous when I walked in thinking bouts my last experience but Mrs. Annette said she would take good care of me.

35 Minutes later I was done and ready to show off my new do!

But before we left I had to leave a quick pee mail.


And rub!

I feel good...and look good too!!!

So good...Oh Yea!!!!

One last rub!!!!

So hopefully momma has learned her lesson....PLAN AHEAD and DON'T USE NEW GROOMERS! Anyhoo I am happy to be hat free now.
