We ♥ Nico The Adorable Adoptable Yorkie!!!

I have to start by saying bow wow wowzwer!!! Nico is an AMAZING little yorkie looking for his forever home in Brooklyn: he’s eight years young (my age!) and an absolute dream of a dog. He is being fostered by an awesome family in Greenpoint – his foster brother Louis XIV is already part of the gang and gave us the scoop: we can vouch that pretty boy Nico is absolutely cool with other dogs & with cats. Oh, he is totally vetted and had a dental where some of the teeth were removed so he just got a clean bill of health. He is an incredibly sweet and loving dog who follows his foster mom everywhere. She adores him! Please contact us if you are interested in adopting this gorgeous, perfect boy and we will connect you to his peeps.

A Dog’s 12 Days Of Christmas

Here’s how us dogs yelp that famous holiday song (get your cheat sheet from this dishtowel):

A Peekapoo in a Pear Tree

Two Chewed slippers

Three Chased Cars

Four Guarded Doors

Five Golden Retrievers

Six Flowers a-Flying

Seven Westies Walking

Eight Legs a-Lifting

Nine Hounds a-Howling

Ten Fleas a-Leaping

Eleven Labs Licking

Twelve Leashes Tugging

Wag That Tail!

My mom misses having me at work – Mr Phoo went to the office with her every day & absolutely loved it! He would even jump in the bag and just wait while she is ready to leave. Me, I get reeeeally bored after a while and bark until she takes me home. Plus I think my dad would he helpless without my guidance. Helpless! So I am thinking of getting her a Solar Dog to keep her puppy fix throughout the day. A solar panel on the collar powers up the tail, that just wags and wags and wags. Like mine.

All The Right Moves

Ahhh Summer, you went by so fast!

Here’s a glimpse of Steve’s athletic prowess. Yup, I should not be talking in third person, but I think I am ready for the big time… Sports agents and big time endorsements, you know where to find me!

All Dogs Are Champions & Deserve A Loving Home

Through no fault of their own, more than four million dogs enter shelters and rescue organizations every year. That’s four million hungry mouths to feed, four million dogs that require medical attention, shelter and love – and the fact that half of those amazing kids never find a place to call home is just heartbreaking. The PEDIGREE Foundation mission is to help those dogs by providing grants to shelters and rescue groups and by encouraging dog adoption. They have already raised more than $376,570 so far this year against its goal of $1.5 million to carry out its work to fund grants that not only help shelters operate, but to further shelter innovations. The Foundation depends on charitable contributions from individuals to carry out its mission to help dogs find loving homes.

Here’s how you can help add more kibbles to the bowl: for the second year, the Pedigree BlogPaws bloggers are hosting a blog hop to help raise awareness to the plight of shelter dogs and to promote adoption. With the “Write a post, help a dog” effort, each post mentioning the PEDIGREE Foundation until today at midnight ET will result in the donation of a 20 pound bag of their new recipe for dogs in shelters nationwide. Just make sure to add your posting to the blog hop.

It is that easy: write a post, help a dog.

In addition to writing a blog post, here’s others ways to help:

Ha! I might finally get a break with this one… You see, my mom is a compulsive key loser so she is always late to leave the house. I could help her find them with my super sniffer powers but I am sooo damn sleepy in the morning. That and that I have been asking for 10 grand to leave the bed and so far, no takers. So I suppose I have to get her a Fetch My Keys key chain from SuckUK. Fetch My Keys is a dogger shaped key ring that has a beeper that is set off when you whistle – along with a flashing nose to guide you to your keys. Not to mention it is pretty easy on the eyes too!

Too Damn Hot

Yeah, I did complain about the blizzard. I did. But there is no reason a yorkie must walk around on a one hundred freaking four degrees weather, is there? So it’s true – I do not do extreme temperatures very well…

Long story short: my parents stopped by PS9 Pets to pick up a cooling toy for me and the Cool Pet Pad caught their eyes… What? No need to recharge or refrigerate? Yup, the pad works on body pressure, so when I lay my hot yorkie body on the pad, it immediately starts cooling. & it will keep cool for about 3 hours (by then I would want to walk around & do all my business dog stuff, anyway) & the Cool Pet Pad simply recharge by simply being left alone. The picture above was taken minutes after my parents open the package. Enough said?

Oh, of course they forgot to get the damn cooling toy & will have to go back this weekend. Typical!
