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~

Yum!

Wig Wag!?

Sunday, May 13th, 2012

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~

A refreshing plunge

How does a foodie fido stay cool? Bobbing for Ice Pups, of course!

I had a blast playing this game that “Mom” came up with.  Behind-the-scenes recipe tips:  Ice Pups made with water float.  If they’re made with non-fat, plain yogurt , they sink, so they’re harder to get.  Either way, they flavor the water.  So too many in the bowl, and I just drank the water.  But I bobbed for them if there was only one in the water @ a time.  Dawgs, don’t try to swallow the ice cube whole.  If you’re tempted to chew it rather than lick it, ask your human to make it out of yogurt instead, to be safer.  Keep your cool.  ~Rusty~

Back to the beach!

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

Hey, y’all!  This poodle’s headed back to the beach – finally. (Enough with the rain!)  I hope your weekend & summer are as good as mine’s shapin’ up to be.  Wooftastik!  ~Rusty~

PS — Dawgs, if you’re afraid of fireworks, ask your humans to stay home with you this weekend. Stay inside, maybe in the most insulated room in the house, with some background sound on so you can’t hear the fireworks as well.  Dig into a special, yummy chewy.  Or play fetch or tug with your people.  I know fireworks can be ruff for some of you, but you’ll be ok.  And, keep your cool:  Hit the beach or a pool!
