Fun with friends!

Sunday, August 12th, 2012

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~


Beat-the-heat treats!

Wednesday, August 8th, 2012

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~

Spring fling!

Monday, March 5th, 2012

I have a serious case of spring fever, pups. 

It all started when my humans took me on a road trip to Mendocino, CA.  I had a blast taking in the views, smelling the flowers & the ocean.  I met amazing animals, including llamas & geese.  (Dawgs, I had no idea there were birds bigger than me!)  Then I slept in a huge bed by a fireplace & an ocean breeze.  Perfect for a princely poodle like myself.

Yeah, I said it.  I’m not hatin’ this sweet life one bit.  ~Rusty~


I workout!

Hey, no New Year’s resolutions required here, dawgs!  I’m stayin’ in shape through the holidays.

It’s easy ‘cuz it’s fun!  I eat healthy foodsnacks & chewies.  I go for walks on the beach and family adventures.  Sometimes mom puts my food in toys, so I have to eat slower & exercise while I eat – cool!  I play with friends whenever I can.  Fetch & catch are always awesome.  I even hopped on the treadmill to show you dawgs how I roll!  (There are treadmills for dogs.  Your humans can help you use one safely:  read here, here and here.)  It’s all good ‘cuz I get plenty of R&R and vet care, so I stay happy & healthy.  And my humans love meAwwww…..

Happy Howl-idays, hounds!  See ya’ next year!  ~Rusty~


Game on!

Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

Last month, my good pal, Bruno, hung out @ my house. I helped him not miss his mom too much for a couple weeks.  A little poodle play did the trick:  We tore it up!  Woof, yeah!  ~Rusty~


Good friends, good times!

Whew!  I’m resting up after a month of sleep-overs with my best friends, Bruno & Elliott. Bruno’s a blast to play with — more on that in my next post.  But he does have one freaky little habit:  He barks @ any animal on TV.  I’m not kidding, dawgs.   Everything from pigs to cats to cartoons.  Check his act out.  Weird, right?!  ~Rusty~


A nice surprise

Saturday, April 9th, 2011

Last week was pretty ho-hum until my friend, Elliott the corgi, stopped by. He hung out with me while his mom traveled, and we had a blast.  (My “mom” took lots of pics, and I even smiled for a few.)  Restin’ up & lookin’ forward to Elliott’s next visit!  ~Rusty~

Rusty’s resolutions

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

Happy New Year! I resolve to play, be cozy & cuddle as much as possible – – and maybe smile more for “mom”‘s pictures.  Shouldn’t be a problem!  I shared my B-day toy with you;  I’ll show you what Santa brought me – later.  And, my corgi-pal, Elliott, is visiting again this week.  In the meantime, I’ve got the cozy down already.  Watch!  ~Rusty~


Holiday play – finally!

Saturday, December 11th, 2010

Thanksgiving week, my buddy, Elliott the corgi, visited. A little background on this situation:  We played really hard & had a blast for a month when I was newly adopted.  The next time he stayed over, I invited him to play (peeked around the corner & barked @ him), just like I had always done.  But that time, he came on way too strong, rushing face-on up to me.  What’s a poodle to do?  I gave him the cold shoulder to settle him down, and we agreed to peacefully coexist.  Really – I had to seriously calm that corgi down!  So the next few times he visited, we didn’t play.  But this time, “mom” whispered in my ear, “You’re taking him way too seriously.  Go Play!”  So I invited him to play again, calmed him down a bit, and game on!  Doggie Detente!!   (The best part:  Elliott’s “mom” told my “mom” that Elliott is now playing more with other dogs than he used to.  Woohoo!)  ~Rusty~


Poodle power nap

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

Ahh… Home sweet home! My humans are back from vacation, & I’m back from the rover resort.  I had a grrr-eat time there this time.  My new friend, Paula, said I was Mr. Social, playing with all the dogs.  I didn’t swim in the pool, though – still a little nervous about it.  I need more practice in my pool @ home.  So I’m napping on the couch and Ruth’s cooking bacon. (What an amazing smell!)

Did you know today is National Dog Day? In honor of that, here’s some previously unseen footage of Bruno & I playing pool-side.  We had a blast!  Now back to napping:  What better way to celebrate Dog Day than bacon-scented doggie dreams?   –Rusty
