Hey, dawgs. I missed you all!
I hope your 2013 has been pawesome so far. Mine has been amazing. My “mom” asked me to help her with 2 new projects. I get to write for her new blog, The Soulful Pet, and her new FB page for the blog. It will be a blast because I’ll get to talk about food, toys, travel, squirrels, cats, pugs & tons of BOLs. So if you’ve been enjoying my blog, don’t worry – I’m not straying far. Just catch me here: Follow The Soulful Pet by email or on Facebook.
Lookin’ forward to welcoming you to our pack, pooches! ~Rusty~

Hey, I hope you’re lovin’ summer as much as I am.
I’ve been tearing it up with my pals, Bruno the Havanese & Elliott the corgi. It’s a blast when I hang with my boys!
Good friends, good times, dawgs! ~Rusty~

Whew, it’s hot here! Fortunately, my mom’s a creative cook.
She made these perfect summer snacks to please all of us guys, and she made them bone-shaped! Even my pal Bruno, a super picky eater, chowed down on these tasty-icy morsels.
When us pooches get together, it’s always big fun. (More on that in my next post!)
Dawgs, these snacks did not disappoint! ~Rusty~

Remember when I got those cool boxes full of surprises?
Well, the bestest toy ever was in the bottom box. It’s light but tuff, just like me. Bowwow bonus: It squeaks & floats! I’m not ashamed to say, I lost my poodle mind over it.
Check it, dawgs! ~Rusty~

So the other day, my people put a pile of boxes on the floor & told me they were mine.
Wow! It was like poodle Christmas in June! So I opened them up (with help….’cuz I don’t have thumbs), and picked out my fave things. I especially loved the Jumpin’ Ginger Snaps, the HoloBal, and the Bully Stick ring. Watch me try them out…..
Dawgs, beg your humans to get these boxes. They’ll need to know how much you weigh so you get the right size toys & treats, so ‘fess up. After that, you get a box full of fido surprises every month for however long you want. Your humans will like that the shipping’s free. I love that they donate 10% profit from each box to a local shelter or rescue!
The best part? I didn’t even tell you about my new favorite toy that I pulled out of the last box. More on that later….. Woof, yeah! ~Rusty~

Dawgs, I couldn’t believe this video. After an epic dig, these humans scored!
Bone envy….. yeah, I’ve got it. ~Rusty~

Fidos, if you follow me on Facebook, you already know I had a ruff go of it a few weeks ago.
Seriously, pups: I put my own spin on sick-as-a-dog. After almost checking into doggie-heaven & scaring the heck outta my humans, I’m just fine now. Big woofs & wags to all the people who saved me, especially my Auntie Tina. (She rocks & here’s why!) Pooches, if you haven’t licked your vet & her staff lately to say thanks —- what are you waitin’ for?!
My peeps & I are glad to be soakin’ up the sun together. Each day’s a blessing, dawgs. Make the most of it. Woof, yeah! ~Rusty~

I’m tryin’ out a cool, new-to-me toy!
I love its shape ‘cuz it’s easy to grab. Words of warning, though, dawgs: Before you play with a new toy, ask your humans to wash it well for you with soap & water. (Be sure to rinse the soap off well.) As much fun as this toy is, it tasted funny @ 1st. You can see I made a few “ick” faces in the video. It was all better after “Mom” washed it several times with animal-friendly Dawn dish washing liquid. But overall, I agree with Mom: We’re gonna stick with the heavy duty, inert Zogoflex plastic toys made in America (not China like this toy!) by West Paw Design. And you should, too.
Only the best for us, pooches! ~Rusty~

Big fido foodie-fun here. “Mom” asked me to test two new feeding stations, and let you know what I thought. So here we go!
The first one is meant to slow little dogs down when they eat. (Seriously, pace yourselves, pups!) If you’re looking for a puzzle toy that will keep you busy for awhile, this isn’t for you, dawgs. But it will make meals last longer. If your nose is bigger than mine, you’ll have trouble getting food out of it. (I don’t mind sayin’ that I weigh 12#. So you judge if you’re too big for this bowl.) Human advantages: It’s easy to take apart, and it’s dishwasher safe. Watch me use the bowl for the 1st time, after Mom loaded it up with chicken. Yum!
Next up is the cat version. I hated this one, pooches. But I tried it for you. Mom made it harder for me by making some of the tubes deeper. Since I don’t use my paws much to get to stuff, I couldn’t reach in far enough with my nose. Not even for chicken! I tried pushing it around & pulling the tubes out with my teeth – no go.
I couldn’t figure it out, but I’m not taking it personally because……………. I’m — not — a — CAT, AM I?!! Grrrr! ~Rusty~
