Hey everybody, Oak and Swish here, hope everyone is having a great week so far. Monday is over it can only get better from here on out. We wanted to share something with you that drives us crazy in our house (especially our mom). Usually most shows we watch in our house we can fast forward through commercials, gotta love DVR. But with football you have to watch live TV and there is this new commercial that they have to play about a billion times during Monday night football. We go CRAZY every time it's on and Swisher almost knocks over the TV. Has anyone else had the same experience with this commercial? (If you press play now and your dog is in the room you may find out exactly what we're talking about)

The other night our human mom came home with a bag from Petco, we were excited we thought we were either getting some new toys or treats. But to our dismay there were two neckties in the bag. We asked mom WHAT is with you and ties. She told us she thinks we look like little gentleman with ties on and blah blah blah. We tried to argue that the Boston Terrier is known as the "American Gentleman" so no ties needed. She didn't buy our excuses, so we came to a compromise; we would let her post a few pics of us wearing them as long as she didn't make us wear them out in public.
She also threw in a few treats so we had to oblige, but only after we gave her some eye rolling.
Do your humans torture you with dorky clothes?

Hi everyone, our mom is making us post today asking if anyone would be willing to help us out with a little project. Mom has a cousin who is in the 2nd grade; in her class they read the book Flat Stanley. It's about a boy who is flattened by a bulletin board. He enjoys many adventures while being flattened like being sent in the mail.
Their class is doing a project where they are mailing Stanley around to people and asking them to send a postcard to the class about his adventure with you. They are doing this to learn about the place you live so they can learn about geography.
Mom is boring and doesn't really know anyone who lives in different places in the world so she thought she'd have us ask if anyone would be willing to help. We were the first place our cousin Jazmine mailed her Stanley so we would like to send him some place pawesome. She knows our blog buddies are very creative and that they are spread out across the states which would be exciting for the kids. You can also make it about your dogs, she is! (She thinks everyone wants to know about us)
She knows people have very busy lives so if you can't its not a problem. If you would be willing to help you can pee-mail us your address to firstname.lastname@example.org. If she gets more than one person to help she will send a list along so you will have someone else to mail it to. If you can help us that'd be great. Thank you in advance.
She also thinks it great to have peoples addresses available because in a few months it will be Christmas card time. She is already trying to plan out our outfits. Last year we had to wear dorky bow ties.
Lots of Licks,
Oak and Swish

We know that some of our blog buddies are football fans like us, so we wanted to wish everyone's team good luck this weekend. Our Fresno State bulldogs play a big game tonight (Friday) so we have our paws crossed for them.

Oakley and Swisher are sleeping so it's their mom here taking the opportunity to make a post. Reading all of Oak and Swish's buddies blogs I start to feel like we lack creativity over here on our blog. Well maybe not the boys' but I sure do. I would like to take over their blog once and awhile to share stories or pictures that I will call...
There are always those moments in my house where one dog is hunting a bug, crying because they trapped themselves under the kitchen table, doing the army crawl across the tv room carpet,etc. During those moments I shake my head, and just let out a sigh, wonder to myself how did I end up with these weirdos. lol. Don't get me wrong though I LOVE my weirdos. It's very late and I'm too tired to think of a really great story to capture the essence of their uniqueness so my first installment of.."my next dog will be normal", is an older picture of Oakley that just makes me laugh. Hope it does the same for everyone else.
We are huge sports fans in our house. Basketball, baseball, football, hockey, mostly everything. We have been super excited that its football season. Our Fresno State bulldogs, had a tough loss against Wisconsin on Saturday 34-31 in Double overtime, and mom was not a happy camper. Sunday we were super excited to have a day full of NFL and pizza! Just being lazy; we didn't have anything to worry about because our Buffalo Bills aren't playing until today. Now we are nervous. We don't really care for that man they call TO that the Bills have this year. He's kind of a crybaby. We hope he can catch a few balls tonight though, it'd be great to start off the season with a win. Do we think its likely? We shouldn't say we don't want mom to get mad at us when she reads this. So for now we hope that the Bills can catch the ball like I can...
Lots of Licks--

Our last post was long and we didn't have any pictures to share with it. So we wanted to lighten things up a bit. We found this old video of Swisher being a sled puller. Maybe this is why he despises skateboards now, hmmmm? BOL. Enjoy

Hi everyone out there in blog land. My boys and I have had so much fun reading all about your good times and sharing ours with you as well. I haven't had them post much lately because we haven't had much going on. Now that summer is winding down we are back to our normal routine, maybe they will post later this week on what our normal routine actually is but for now I named this post Takin' it back Tuesday because I was looking through an old photobucket account and found some old pictures of these guys when they were just babies and I felt like sharing them with everyone. They have grown so much it is hard to believe. I hope you enjoy the trip down memory lane as much as I did. Have a great day everyone!
