Day 730: Up And At-Em Saturday

I woke up early this mornin, rarin to get this wonderful day started wif the tasty breakfast foods... this in spite of fact that I was up twice in the middle of the night to let my the Mom know that (1) there is a noisy non-payin tenant in the attic and (2) I fink I feel a storm in Norf Dallas... but I digress.
I was very convincin and when the Mom frew her legs over the side of the bed, I led off the one boy parade... steppin back and forf over the groggy Bleu till Big Boy decide it in his best interest to join in!
And then we went outside and came back inside for tasty breakfasts and then subsequentally back outside and back in. Whhhhew! I settled in to suck some good toy, the Bleu went back to bed and the Mom started to work on the compy... which she did until time for her to do her errands, runnin round and the whatnot like renewin mine and the Bleu's contract [by fetchin another case of the Wysong Anergen at the PetStop!]!

And since she was in the neighborhood, the Mom popped by the GRRH Meet-n-Greet at the Orvis on Westheimer, just in time to see the Lefty meet his new awesome parents!!!
Lefty is a handsome boy who came to us as a puppy that looked like maybe a Golden Mix [though clearly probably not...]. He was adopted out right away, but his family returned him to us a few months ago, with a few issues. GRRH has an awesome group of trainers that work with our dogs, and Lefty soon became a star student!
The Mission is to find the perfect Forever Family for our dogs. And today, I am absolutely certain that Lefty's folks are a perfect match!

In other news, Ben met his potential Forever Family today... they are to meet again this coming week, to introduce dogs, away from the chaotic Orvis sidewalk!
Please to wish the Ben Franklin good luck wif his quest to find his Forever Family! It will be in the paws of the potential family's dog!

Also at Orvis today was Miss Cinnamon, a 1 1/2 year old Golden Mix, with a lot of energy... and a lot of training under her collar!
Cinnamon is on the small side, and has the super soft furs that you will just love to run your paws errrrr hands frew! And this sweet girl really needs and deserves her Forever Home! Please to read more about her!

Also there today was the LA Bud, a fine lookin Golden Boy who is SO ready for his Forever Home!

The GRRH Trainin Team has made tremendous progress wif this smart fellow. Why, he's a real gentleman now... not to mention how he covered in the red-furred handsomeness!!! [Note that I mean that in only the dudeliest sort of way...]. Please to read more about him!

Now if you or anybody you know feel the twinges of love after readin this, please to send an email to and tell em the Luke sent ya, on a counta that will make the Adoptions Team smile!

And now back to... The Me! And I fink it good time to clear up some fing I say yesterday... You see some times my the Mom needs to feel needed and loved... times like when she is snackin just little bit on the chex mix [et al]. I tell you yesterday I find that is good opportunity to sit nicely right in front of her wif a big smile on face and just a little fidgetty squirm of exudin love for the her... just like this:
Now, you can judge Success by many different factors... but in general terms, I find this to be about 100% effective. Just sayin.

Now back to today... Me and the Bleu didn't spend great big bunch of time out of doors on a counta the heat was just oppressive! [97 degrees, feel like 105 degrees!] 
Heat do not play factor in whether we are ZOOMY... But it DO effect our duration!
And here I am... nearin the finish line!!!
I not tell you earlier, but when I saw the signs that the Mom was about to leave me early this mornin... I frow myself against the door to the garage in protest, and I did not get up willinly or wifout the drama.
And that's where I'll be spendin the next few hours, just to make sure she is in for the night. I mean, some body gotta look out for old gal. Just sayin.

I mean... we all need to be IN, so we can HOP!!!

Hey Luke - good to hear from you! It's hot here too if that makes you feel any better:) And we keep getting these torrential rainstorms that cause flash floods. The noise doesn't bother me like it does you, but I'm still getting pretty tired of it. Everybody thought it was such a long, tough, unusual winter and now we're all thinking it's way too hot everywhere for this early in the summer!! What's going on??? Oh well... try to keep cool and tell the bleu I said woof.

Nothing like getting the humans up early so they can start their day - which must start with feeding us.
