The Great Wabbit Chase

Rory and Mugsy playing in the backyard. He would chase the lure all day if we had time. It's a great way to wear him out. It does make it hard to rake or sweep now since he thinks all items with a handles are toys.

**update** Martha's Paw Paw goes over the Rainbow Bridge

Martha & Paw Paw (r.i.p.)

**Update** This actually happened in April. Sad either way...
I stopped home for lunch today to finish my 'noodle' medals for the closing ceremonies of my workplace Olympics today -(Go Team Italy!). The Martha Stewart Show was on and she was commenting on the loss of her famous Chow Chow, Paw Paw, who passed away on Saturday.

Our hearts go out to her and those who were close to Paw Paw. I was amazed by her ability to not burst into tears as she shared stories and pictures of her favorite companion over the last 14 years. My Amadeus(Iguana)was 14 years old when he passed away this past winter and it breaks your heart to not have them around. Martha has two french bulldogs to keep her company now, we think Martha has great taste in pets! Plus would guess that Martha allows her dogs on the counter!

Pet's Bill of Rights

Pet's Bill of Rights

  1. We have the right to be full members of your family. We thrive on social interaction, praise, and love.

  2. We have the right to stimulation. We need new games, new toys, new experiences, and new smells to be happy.

  3. We have the right to regular exercise. Without it, we could become hyper, sluggish...or fat.

  4. We have the right to have fun. We enjoy acting like clowns now and then; don't expect us to be predictable all the time.

  5. We have the right to quality health care. Please stay good friends with our vet.

  6. We have the right to a good diet. Like some people, we don't know what's best for us. We depend on you.

  7. We have the right not to be rejected because of your expectations that we be great show dogs, watchdogs, hunters, or baby-sitters.

  8. We have the right to receive proper training. Otherwise, our good relationship could be marred by confusion and strife - and we could become dangerous to ourselves and others.

  9. We have the right to guidance and correction based on understanding and compassion, rather than abuse.

  10. We have the right to live with dignity...and to die with dignity when the time comes.
