baxter and duk duk's tiny tales for little puppies: pop! (part 1)

the little dachshund could not believe his luck.  there before him it lay, a tiny kernel of unpopped popcorn. the little dachshund had always heard popcorn pop, and he had always smelled popcorn pop, and he had even tasted delicious popped popcorn, but he had never ever actually seen popcorn actually pop. and so the little dachshund patiently waited, waiting for his tiny popcorn kernel to pop...

sunny with a chance of dirt balls

Some little wolves have yet to discover their passion in life, but this little wolf has most definitely discovered his. :)

we built an outdoor sink :)


A few months ago I was wandering around in the Habitat for Humanity Restore, minding my own business, when right there before my eyes was a Kohler stainless steel drop in sink.  Not just any sink, mind you, but one where one of the basins actually looked long enough to accommodate all of tiny chumley's enlongated cuteness without him having to curl into a donut.   And, it was only five dollars. Five dollars! Clearly, this was a message from the shopping gods. All I had to do come up with a plan,  wait for all the other stuff I needed to show up at the Restore and blammo, tiny chumley's make shift paw washing station would be upgraded to the ergonomic outdoor sink of my dreams.





Of course, it didn't quite work out that way.  Research and planning took forever, and apparently treated wood doesn't show up that often at our Restore, or galvanized pipe for that matter (though ebay does so, yay for pipe fittings by mail!).  And amongst other things, I learned you sometimes have to go to three different Lowes on three different days to find a working pipe cutter machine, a Kreg Jig really is handy, and friends with drill presses are indeed very valuable friends.  Yeah, the shopping gods didn't exactly give me a simple quick and easy project,  but what a super cool project it turned out to be. And yes...just in case you were wondering...







tiny chumley fits perfectly. :)







hee hee mom, since we are outside and all, after we wash my paws do u think it would okay if me and duk duk filled the sink all the way to the top and played 20000 poops under the sea? :)

and now a word from my stinky neighbor friend cassie










Hello my friends, it's me, Baxter, your roving rover reporter, reporting to you today about a super cool toy I was sent to review from my friends at chewy.com. Only, I could not review the toy because it is a pull toy and, well, u know, my neck and all. So, I asked my next door neighbor friends the little misses and Cassie if they would help, and lucky for me they said yes, and that they would even do it from way over there. 




















So this is Cassie. You remember Cassie, right?  Big, slobbery, panty one and a half year old girl dog who is still learning how to stand over there?  This is what she looks like when she thinks she is going to get a snackie.

















And this is what she looks like when she is actually going to get a snackie, which happens to be piece of her gimungous kibble, which I really admire.  The size of her kibble I mean.  Not her. Although she is not bad for a friend who is a girl. Anyhow you can tell she really really really wants that snackie because she is doing her best perky ears and sit.  Remember that because we will get back to that in a moment.


















Now this is the very cool toy Cassie will be reviewing.  It is a Kong Rope Squezz. I forgot to measure it before Cassie slobbered all over it but here you can see how it compares to the piece of paper I used to print the review form I made for Cassie to fill out.  The Kong Rope toy is made from a nice woven rope and I would say mid grade durable bitey parts (less durable than a Kong Toy but more durable than a toyfriend) and a cushioney handle.  Overall I'd say based on these materials, it is meant to be an interactive, actively supervised toy and not one u just let your dog chew on and destroy in a minute, because u know, that's what toyfriends are for.










So back to Cassie and her review.  This is Cassie when u squeak the ballie part of the tug toy.  Yep, I'd say she really really really really wants it, dontchoo? Cuz she totally has her snackie face on.   So as Khan would say, "shall we begin?"






Cassie and the little misses played tug and toss and tug, tug, tug for almost and hour and even though the little misses were very tired, Cassie had so much fun that you could tell she would have very much liked to have played longer. 
.

So here are the pros of the Kong Rope Squezz:
1) Soft cushioned handle for the human side allows for extended playing time
2) Easy to grab squeaky ball for dog side
3) If your dog is a hanger on like Cassie is and you need to do some bicep curls, then u pretty much can do your arm workout and play with your dog at the same time
4) It is heavy enough to be chucked pretty far in the yard if u want some rest in between tugs of war
5) Super for any dog who likes interactive play, and does not have to worry about neck or spine issues.

And the cons?
1) As with any tug toy, probably not the best thing for a weenie dog to play with as a tug toy. 
2) Probably not the best use of toy money for a dog that would prefer to just kill a toy (like moi) rather than be in a tug of war with it. 

And how would little miss Julia rate it?


So that's it my friends. If you know a dog that likes their toys on the tuggier side of things, then this toy is definitely for them. And if you happen to order yours from chewy.com, it will get to your house in a flash.  This is Baxter your roving rover reporter wishing you the most wonderful of Wednesdays :)

prince plumprump's plumpy rump



so plump was prince plumprump's plumpy rump,
that everybuddy thought he plumped his rump with a pump,
except for the tushie man who most certainly knew,
that putting anything even close to prince plumprump's plumpy rump,
would only make him jumpy jump. :)

project summer fun 2015

well, if we move all our furniture and stuff into the backyard - well, except the tv and the wii and the trebuchet - and we put some trees inside so they can swing, and maybe put some tarps down so they can, u know (hee hee, and maybe on the walls too bc, well u know). o and fill the refrigerator full of bananas and of course put plenty of monkey chow in the pantry...well, yes, I think it would be funner than just a barrel full. for us and for them. so, can we, mom? please? :)

how 2 make sure your mom and dad never leave u home alone again :)


Though we always try to take him with us wherever we go, the oppressive heat of summer makes it impossible to take the little kielbasa with us for lunch and other little errands where he would have to stay in the car.  But try telling that to a tiny forlorn little weenie boy, who seems to know exactly what heart strings to pull and where to pull them now that we have a new sound activated web cam to watch over him.  :)
