crafty buggers!

hi every bloggie!
What! What was that! Run run run fast fast fast!  Huh?? 
Where did he go?  I know there are more around here. 
If only I could climb a tree. 
Or  figure out their crafty games.  Silly.. tricks are for kids.  Oh well, I like it. 

i can't help myself

hello every bloggie! 

As you know, yesterday I did a good deed and took a bath to help raise money for other dogs. Yep I was a smelly good. Squeaky clean. Fresh and new. 

But I have a confession.  No no do I have to show you? I ......
I couldn't help myself.  This is me 1 hour later.  

Dirty boys have more fun!  That's just the way it is.

suds and scoops and tips for you!

hello every bloggie!

Yesterday I had good dog 201 class!  Yadda yadda that's not news but the newsworthy part was afterwards!  We headed to the Suds & Scoops party. 

I felt I should help out other rescue dogs today and made a tough decision.  I paid and volunteered to take a BATH to raise money for Save a Dog rescue! I must say they knew how to promote this event. I got a frosty paw sundae too.  
Yummers! I got to eat my sundae first!

My fellow good dog 201 classmate Mulligan showed up with his mom too!  They were selecting sundae toppings: mini zukes, jerky, and cookies please!
But Mulligan gets nervous and doesn't feel like eating his sundae.  I offered to take it off his hands.  Oh no... my number is 58!  Look! It's getting close to Bath Time!
Okay! I'm up!  Here is the proof!
Oh don't believe me! Here's another shot!

And time for classic norwood dry off! Please don't towel dry me! I got this part!

Here are some squeaky clean do gooders like me.  

It was a fun event! Who knew getting a bath can help other dogs!

Now onto one more thing.. the tips for you!  

Bruce the Cat asked me to post information about dogs and the heat.  He knows about many dogs who have died recently due to heat stroke.  No matter what the temperature, your dog may not be able to handle the summer heat. Here's some helpful tips that you may know but never hurts to have a refresher:
(click to view full article)
Heatstroke occurs when normal body mechanisms cannot keep the body's temperature in a safe range. Animals do not have efficient cooling systems (like humans who sweat) and get overheated easily. A dog with moderate heatstroke (body temperature from 104º to 106ºF) can recover within an hour if given prompt first aid and veterinary care (normal body temperature is 100-102.5°F). Severe heatstroke (body temperature over 106ºF) can be deadly and immediate veterinary assistance is needed.


A dog suffering from heatstroke will display several signs:

  • Rapid panting
  • Bright red tongue
  • Red or pale gums
  • Thick, sticky saliva
  • Depression
  • Weakness
  • Dizziness
  • Vomiting - sometimes with blood
  • Diarrhea
  • Shock
  • Coma
I posted some new gadgets on my sidebar. You will see these two gadgets related to dogs and the heat.  Click to visit and get the daily dog walking forecast and other "it's too hot" dog information.  You can post to your blog too and share with others!

My Dog Is Cool

It's hard to keep exercised and have fun in the summer but you can. Just play it safe! Don't over do it and prepare for the heat! I have to remember this too!  
This is the only hot dog you should have in the summer.

my tongue is bananas!

oh boy! You won't believe what I had to do yesterday. I thought I was having fun. You know chasing things, running free, hunting small prey and minding my own business. 

Well it was the last thing "minding my own business" that you know who didn't like.  Mom said I was Mr. Bizerko times 10 and went into cuckoocuckoonut mode.  She usually runs during her lunch hour at work but was off today.  So ms. bright idea decided a focused run would be the ideal activity to cure me. Never went on a "run" before but it could be fun. We ran 4 miles along the Assabet Rails to Trail.  

Here are the after run pics. Look I was worn out. My eyes can't keep open. If I do say so myself, I am a good running partner.  But I was hot. Fortunately the river runs along the trail to take a cool off break.  
But my tongue went bananas! Just like my cousin Tula's tongue is always doing crazy stuff. 
Don't worry, there was a pay off.  I went directly to Mr. Frog's pond to have a little fun and cooling off too.  Then I was called a "good boy" the remainder of the day.  I wasn't being good, I was just very tired... get a clue.  Whatever makes her happy I guess. 

Yesterday's eYewatch friday answers are: 
4. Tula
5. Archie (Agatha and Archie) 
7. Bailey of the Secret Schnoodles
8. Dexter (aka Pee Wee of Mango's Great Adventures)
Good job... those eyeballs are tricky.

reading is FUNdamental!

Well I can't believe it! School's out now! 
That means summer is about to begin. Mom still has to work but Tula's Mom (aka fun aunt dee) is a teacher and has off for the summer.  
You would think that means fun times! fun times! Play with me all day!
But no... she is a teacher.  She assigned me homework.  So do you know what I did?  I assigned her a little summer reading assignment.  She has to read my latest book.  
What do you think?  Will she learn anything?
