Me Jumping!

Filed under: Pictures — FF @ 9:15 PM

As some of you know, I love to jump and dance. Here is a cool photo sequence the King took of me the other day.

Gettin' ready...

Jump!

...coming back down.

The King tried to get me to jump again, but I wasn’t having it.

No more!

My New (and First!) Foster Bro, Curly

Filed under: Pictures — Tags: — FF @ 11:16 AM

Curly Dog!

When the Queen told me I’d be getting a new foster brother, I was very excited! Sophie is a nice sister and all, but I’d always dreamed of having a bro-dog. Before the Queen went to get Curly, she told me he was a young pup (14 months) with lots of energy, so I was going to have to be patient with him. I didn’t care, though, because I was just looking forward to playing!

Curly arrived and the Queen let me get a good sniff at him through the baby gate. He smelled OK, so the I told the Queen to go ahead and let him in. Once she did, we ran around for about 15 minutes trying to figure out who was going to be in charge. I was able to assert my authority over Curly (it is, after all, MY house) and then we just went on playing.

That first night I showed Curly how to use the dog door and how to sit for a treat. He is a really smart dog, so he picked it up right away!

Sitting for Treats

Since he’s been here, Curly has been a pretty good dog. The Queen takes him on long runs since he has SO much energy. I don’t get jealous, because to be honest, better him than me (BOL)! I hate going on long runs, but Curly has a lot of energy. He paces a lot inside and is ALWAYS trying to get me to play with him, so when I’m tired, I just give him a little bark and he is pretty good about leaving me alone.

Curly Winking

Overall, Curly is one cool dude. He’s smart, cuddly, and loves running (which the Queen likes, I think). If you would like to adopt him, go to Austin Pets Alive! and submit an inquiry about Curly.

Curly will definitely need a house with a BIG yard, maybe a buddy for him to play with, and an owner with lots of patience who is willing to help Curly behave like a proper dog should. He’s had a lot of changes and hardship in his young life, so some love and stability would definitely do him some good (we’re trying, but we can’t keep him forever!).

I’ll update you on Curly soon!

Bling Contest – The Winners

Filed under: Contests, Pictures — FF @ 9:18 AM

Yes, winners, plural. Originally there was only going to be one winner, but SO many animals participated and they all did such a wonderful job, I’ve decided to choose a grand prize winner and a runner up! The grand prize winner will get $20 in prizes and the runner up will get $10 in prizes.

First, I’d like to thank @emmythecat and @fergusthedog for helping me judge. It was a long and tedious process (thanks to Twitter exploding last night), but our decisions were UNANIMOUS! How often does that happen?

Without further ado…

First Runner Up – @PerrytheBirman!

That's one cool cat...I mean bunny!

And, the moment you’ve all been waiting for!

The Grand Prize Winner – @LacyDog!

What a great bunny pose!  Marvelous effort =).

All three judges were greatly impressed with Lacy’s bunny pose – it really made the bling picture stand out.

Thank you to ALL who participated. It was great fun seeing all the animals dressed up! I’ll leave you with a list of honorable mentions – those who made it to the final round of judging:

The Queen says I have a cowbelly. She says it in a Christopher Walken voice. Who is Christopher Walken?
