The Greedy Girl Torments Rudy | Monday Mischief

You may remember the big excitement when the Talking Dogs finally saw their first squirrel.  Since then Rudy has spent a lot of time watching the yard and the trees for that pesky critter.  Without a whole lot of success.  Oh, well, right?   

Figuring the heck with real tree rats, I got Rudy a new Chuckit! Flying Squirrel toy for his birthday.  It's pretty cool and even glows in the dark.  All three dogs loved it.

However, a certain girl dog decided it was HER toy!

 She wasn't about to give it up to the birthday boy.

Rosie may have wanted it, but 
Rudy was determined to bring it back to Mama.

No way was Rosie letting go of Rudy's new toy!  
Look at her eyes! LOL

Rudy had never seen her move so fast.

 Rosie totally threw Rudy off his fetching game.

It's mine!  Rudy tried to tell the greedy girl.
 Over and over again.


Thank you to Snoopy’s Dog Blog, Alfie’s Blog, and My Brown Newfies for hosting Monday Mischief!

Adopt Wonton a Young #PitBull Dog in Missouri

Wonton is a 1 year old brown brindle Pit Bull Terrier mixed breed dog.  According to the staff and volunteers at the Humane Society of Missouri St. Louis City animal shelter, Wonton can be a little shy around new people and situations.  Consequently, she's love a quiet home, somewhere she can feel safe and secure.  She does warm up to folks and then she's oh, so sweet and affectionate.  Wonton loves to be petted and will roll over for some nice belly rubs.

While Wonton has been at the shelter, she's learned to walk nicely on a leash.  She loves going outside.  Wonton is alert and attentive.  

Wonton is two of the HSMO special programs.  In their Shelter to Home program, she's learning basic commands.  So far she has mastered sit, down and wait.  She is also in their Dog to Dog Socialization where she's learning how to play with other dogs.  She's doing great with that!  

Check out Wonton playing with a shelter friend, then give the HSMO a call at 314-951-1562.  Wonton's animal ID number is A575181

Since 1870, the Humane Society of Missouri has been dedicated to second chances.  They provide a safe and caring haven to animals - large and small - that have been abused, neglected or abandoned.  Their mission is to end the cycle of abuse and overpopulation, assist in creating lasting relations hips between people and animals, offer world-class veterinary care, plus offer pet obedience and behavior programs.  HSMO operates three animal shelters in the St Louis, Missouri, area, plus Longmeadow Rescue Ranch in Union, Missouri, for abused and neglected horses, cows, goats, chickens and other farm animals.

We are participating in the Tuesday's Tails blog hop hosted by Dogs N Pawz and Talking Dogs.  This is the blog hop that features shelter pets.  Find a pet at your local animal shelter or rescue and join us!  Please help spread the word about these beautiful animals via social media and let's find them forever homes!

National #Pitbull Awareness Month Video Tribute | Dog Song Saturday

We're celebrating Pitbull Awareness Month today with a special Dog Song Saturday at Talking Dogs..

Respeonsible Pit Bull Owners... This is Your Song is a wonderful compilation of video clips and photographs featuring Pit Bull dogs set to Your Song by Sir Elton John.

In 2007, Bless the Bullys introduced the idea of a national "pit bull awareness day," and it took off like wildfire. Devoted pit bull advocates jumped on the opportunity to participate in the first of its kind nationwide initiative to bring about positive pit bull media attention together on one day. To date, it is still the only nationwide event to highlight the positive pit bull through media and personal experience!

The National Pit Bull Awareness campaign is a nationwide effort to bring positive awareness and attention to the American Pit Bull Terrier and their responsible owners. 

Grab a dog to cuddle.  Sit.  Stay.  Relax and enjoy I Love My Beagle
Then fetch some more genuine dog song music videos at Talking Dogs.  You'll be surprised at how many we've collected over the past few years.
