Meows and Woofs on Monday with Ciara and Zoey




Ciara had a surprise visitor while she was trying to take a sunshine snooze.





So you heard it straight from the cat's meow - who wouldn't want their picture on the Paws 2011 calendar? All you have to do is send in one of your favorite photos of yourselves. No cost whatsoever. Just visit this post at Zoolatry for all the details. But don't delay - there IS a deadline and you surely don't want to miss out on this great opportunity to strut your stuff.

One last thing - today is a big day in the life of a very special puppy. That would be Ruby, the service puppy who has been in training in Colorado with a wonderful family. Ruby has spent about 18 months with "Mr. and Mrs. Ruby Raiser" and will be moving on today to the next level, Advance training. Congratulations to all for a great job. We are going to miss Ruby very much. We have grown to love her so much. We know it will be a very difficult and emotional day for her family. If you can, do stop by their blog and leave them some good thoughts. And Ruby Girl - you rock, now go show 'em your stuff.

Woos, Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Mom has been thinking about doing a calendar, too. With ten of us we have most of the year covered. If she can stop being lazy and start looking thru our pictures, we could have it for next year.

Stupid blogger ate my comment.

Dang it, I wish I had a way better digital camera. I'd soooooooo send in a picture of my boys if I did.

You're very well behaved, Ciara. I can't believe you didn't bark at or chase that sweet kitty.

sprinkles said...

Almost forgot - loving your new header.

KB said...

Ciara - You are a wonderful gentle puppy to be so nice to that cat who woke you up!

I couldn't find Mr. and Mrs. Ruby Raiser's blog address to go congratulate them. I hope that they read this to get their kudos!

Finally, I love your header! Your pack is so gorgeous!

Ruby's Raiser said...

Thank you so very much for your kind words and support today. We dropped our little Roo off with her Advanced Trainer earlier this afternoon, and despite the tears, we feel so very good and positive about her future.

The day would have been so much more difficult if not for the wonderful support of friends like you. You and your beautiful pack have brought us so many smiles over the past few months, and for that, we thank you with all of our hearts. :)

Thank you for letting us copy your information.

Finally catching up a bit - sorry we've been so MIA. What cuuuute pix of Ciara and Zoey! Adorable1 We'll look into that calendar and go see Ruby. It's always so hard for puppy raisers, I think, to let their sweetie pies that they've worked so hard to love and train... go. We are over there! Must read your previous post first tho....
