Sick, Sick, Sick...

I'm so sorry that the boys still haven't been to your sites. I have had the flu since returning from Vegas and haven't left the couch for 4 days! (Maybe my body was rejecting the 40-degree temperature drop from there to here?) And I'm not about to let the boys use the computer on their own--what with their lack of opposable thumbs, and their young, teenage minds, who knows what could happen?

Waldo was featured on the site Licked Toys, and I forgot to mention it here (oops...mommee must be losing it). Click here to see his battle vs. the schnauzer (no offense, Madison)!

Also, don't forget the Tricks for Treats contest! Here's the guidelines again:
1. Get a video of your doggeh (or kitteh) doing their best trick(s).
2. Send a link of the video to allisonwalton79 at gmail dot com, or post the youtube code into the comments section.
3. Submissions will be taken through March 30th. Submissions will be posted on March 31st. Voting will be conducted by a non-partial judge, and the winner and their video will be posted just in time for April Fool's Day!
4. Winner will receive a special prize from Gus and Waldo!

Contest rules:
1. One video submission per doggeh.
2. Please TRY to keep your videos under 1 minute.
3. You don't have to film the most elaborate trick(s). Points will be given for reaction time, creativity, execution, and presentation. So, even if your dog only knows how to sit, make it the Best Sit Ever, and you might win!

We've had a lot of people tell us that they're going to pawticipate--we can't wait to see your submissions! Remember: the deadline for submissions is MARCH 30th. You've got 4 more days!!

Finally, I thought I'd post something about the boys. Right after we got Waldo, we took this video:

Well, recently I took an updated video. What do you think?

HawaiianDane said...

Get well soon. The tug of war videos are cute - they play so well together. My two are crazy when they play!

Mango said...

I got confused and thought we had to do the same trick as that doggie in the picture. I think I might have squished momma. Hee hee.


Abby said...

Hi, You Guys...

I hope you feel better soon, Allison..

I loved the video of the boys...Looks like Waldo is a little harder for Gus to handle now...

Abby xxxooo

Bijou said...

You two are so quiet. When me and Banjo play tug we are both growling so loud sometimes mom has to turn the tv up louder so she can hear.

You have a nice big yard with lots of green grass. Ours is just starting to green up.

Wags & wiggles,

Amber and Nala said...

Hope you are feeling better Alison! :) What a difference a few months can make in a game of tug! :)

Sam and Bodhi said...

Behr Behr said...

Here's Behr Behr's video. She's still in the process of learning the tricks, but I'm posting it anyhow. She's still a puppy, and still VERY HYPER, but we're getting there.

Maybe not the best trick out there, but pretty good for a dog several top trainers have given up on :) We're going it alone now, and doing ok. Similar story to the Zoo crew's LWT and the comment made by bighoneydog on that post.

Anyhow, I'm proud of her whether she wins or not!

Sorry to hear you were sick -- my wife was sick with the flu for a week! Thanks for stopping by and saying hello to Dennis!

Mindy Lu said...

BARK! I like to play tug with daddy. He is almost as strong as me. Mommy likes how big Waldo got between the 2 moving pictures. BARK! Sasha the Princess
