Rainy Day Activities

Honey recently made a post about her rainy day activities. Since it's been pretty rainy and cold here, we decided to do the same!

Howl-O-Ween Dog Parade

It was a rainy, cold day at the Howl-O-Ween Dog Parade. A stark contrast from last year, when the weather was so beautiful. I took the dogs out in the morning, to run around the park for an hour, but they still seemed to have copious amounts of energy left, and they pulled me most of the way around the mall. Everyone seemed to enjoy the costumes, though some were confused as to what they were (I guess you can't tell what we are from the front, only from the side). The judges weren't confused, though....we got 2nd place!



A little disappointed that we weren't first, but the video gamers were well represented--Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi took 1st place overall. They were cute. Waldo and Gus were DEFINITELY the biggest pair there. There are sooooo many little dogs in our area, and it just makes Waldo and Gus seem that much bigger.

Here's hoping for better weather next year!

Happy Howl-O-Ween!

Thanks, everyone, for all of your Howl-o-ween guesses! We cannot believe it, but no one was able to guess! Mommee posted an easier picture last year, we figure.

We has to post 3 pictures, one of each of us, because it is nearly impossible for mommee to take care of the flashy-thing, and post a picture of all of us together, especially since our costumes will involve our leashes, and whenever our leashes come out, we go all nuts-o. Anyways, the little balls mommee will attach to our leashes, so it looks like she's after us.

Here we are!!


We are in a costume contest tomorrow--wish us luck!!

Wordless Wednesday, (prep-for-Halloween edition)

Any guesses?



Also, on a different note, here are our entries for Dora's Smiley Contest:

Gus is smiling because he knows how much smarter he is than his dopey big brother:


Waldo is smiling because he knows that even though his brother is smarter, he can reach the countertops to grab food:

Walking for Nana

Every year, mommee walks in the Making Strides for Breast Cancer walk here in our hometown. It is to honor those who have battled breast cancer. Some of you may know that our Nana (mommee's mommee) and Mamaw (mommee's grandma) both had breast cancer. In fact, Nana is still fighting it today. Mamaw passed away in 2008, but we always think of her on days like this.


Last year and this year, Waldo came and walked with mommee. Last year, Waldo wore a shirt, but this year we couldn't fit it on him! So, we just wore our pink bandannas together.

Please, if you are a lady, and you are reading this blog, take some time to do a self-check every month for anything unusual. If you are over 40 (or over 30 if you're at-risk), go get a mammogram every year! It is important all the time, but especially in October as we observe Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Run Free, Mr. Darcy

Our sweet Dane friend Mr. Darcy crossed the Rainbow Bridge today. We will miss him--he was such a sweet big boy. Please go and leave his mom and dad a message--they have already been on an emotional roller-coaster, and I'm sure they would love encouragement from you.

Edited to add:

We have been so busy lately, we didn't realize until today that a couple of our other bloggie friends have also crossed the Bridge. We also want to give sniffs to Angie, who had to say goodbye to her sweet Ruby yesterday:
