Slide

A small town near us is raising money to get their own dog park. Twice a month they host a dog park at the local baseball field and take donations. This time they had it at a different location. It included play equipment for the kids. The first video is of Rob taking Bradley down the slide. The second video is Brodie accidentally going down the slide on his own. He was terrified. But then he went down again with Daddy and it wasn't so bad.

This is Zoe, a 12-week old Great Dane puppy. The picture doesn't do her justice. She had a beautiful silver coat.

Bradley wants to be El Rey Fido 2011

My names is Bradley and I am almost 2 years old. I remember being taken from my mommy and littermates at only 5 weeks old. I went through 3 homes before being orphaned at a vet's office. When I was only 8 weeks old I saw my new Mommy for the first time and it was love at first sight, although Daddy took some convincing. They adopted me but I didn't get to go to my forever home until I was 10 weeks old because I was sick. But once I was home I met my best friend and big brother Brodie. Shhh, don't tell him, but he was a purchased pup. I would like to raise money to help all the doggies (and kitties) out there find their families. It's no fun when you don't have a place to belong. So please help me become El Rey FIDO 2011. If I'm crowned I promise to give everyone I see a big lick on the face. Well, maybe I'll do that anyway.

 
* To become crowned El Rey Fido IX in April 2011, your dog (and you) must collect more money for the orphaned pets of the San Antonio Humane Society than any other canine-and-human pair. The fundraising deadline is March 25, 2011 at 5 p.m.  
**The one dog who garners the highest number of individual contributors (regardless of the dollar amount raised) will get to be on the royal court.

Blackout

It's cold. So cold. Record temperatures here. In fact, we're having rolling blackouts because the power stations can't handle the demand. The morning show wanted us to post pics on their facebook page of how our pets stay warm. Here's my pics for facebook of Brodie and Bradley waiting for the blackout.
Here are the boys sporting their cold winter gear for their pic. They weren't really wearing this in the house. Bradley's never worn a sweater before. This was Angus's sweater. It barely fit Bradley. I couldn't get it all the way closed.
Brodie's an old pro at cold weather gear. This is the jacket he used to wear to daycare on cold mornings.
This cold and cloudy weather has made Bradley extra groggy. This is his napping couch when he doesn't have a lap to lay in. He prefers a pillow and blanket to a sweater.
