"I'm So Excited...

...and I just can't hide it".... Yup. I can't stop wagging my tail and spinning in circles. You know what Mom told us? Grandma is coming to visit! That's right, and she's arriving today! I love me my Grandma. She gives me all the extra attention I want and best of all, she slips me all sorts of yummy goodies. Grandma lives far away. We usually only get to go to Grandma's house on special occasions or holidays and such. But today she's coming to visit ME! Ok ok ok, she's coming to visit ALL of us. Mom and Oakley too. But I know the real reason. She misses me. Who wouldn't miss me? I'm PAWesome.

The days leading up to today weren't so exciting though. Mom has been on a cleaning rampage. Just when I finished all that hard work to get my scent on everything, she goes and cleans it. So Thursday was pretty boring. The house was in disarray and all our toys were put aside. There was no room to chase my brother, or NOM on some bones or play tug of war with stuffies with Oakley. We were left to do only one thing...

...wait for Grandma!

Mom said she's wasn't coming yet. Not until Saturday. But I don't know what Saturday is, or when it is, so I just waited. I took a nap, woke up, and waited some more. She still wasn't here. Hmm? How long do I have to wait? I figured I would ask Oakley if he knew when Saturday was (since he was the one who went to school and all) and he didn't know what I was talking about. Thanks a lot Oak. Now we're both stuck here.

Mom and Aunt V were doing some interesting stuff besides cleaning. Aunt V said it's called 'decorating'. For a minute I thought I was getting two new brothers when I saw these things. Mom got two framed pictures from her boss of a Boston Terrier and a Pug puppy. "Looks like you", Mom said, but fawn colored. I thought it looked nothing like me, I am WAY more handsome.

The evening wasn't a total bust. Mom surprised us with some fun stuffies. Mom said they were way too cute she had to get them for us.

Cute? Ha! I'll show you cute. These things aren't gonna be that cute when me and my brother have our way with them. But I figure by the time we're through with these, Grandma will be here!

Lots of Licks,

Hey everyblogger... Oakley here. It's been a while since our last post and our deepest aPAWlogies. But not to worry, we have been reading up on all your fun and exciting adventures. And it's time to share some of ours. Sorry Mom, we love you, but you were a wee bit slacking on this here bloggy. Can't blame Mom though. We just have too many friends to keep up with all the time. So... my brother Swisher and I made a decision. We asked our Auntie V to intervene. We all discussed it, and Auntie V has agreed to become Co-Editor in Chief of our Blog.

So FF two months later from our last post... it's October now. You know what that means? Halloween! Or as we like to say, HOWL-oween. Check me out in my new festive Howl-oween collar! ::whistles:: Stud right? Yup I think so.

Howl-oween means candy, costumes and PUMPKINS! We're still not exactly sure why people get excited over pumpkins. They just sit there and smell funny. And sometimes they have mean faces on them, which can be a little scary sometimes. But Mom and Auntie V like 'em. They went out to a pumpkin patch (where dogs weren't allowed. How rude!) and brought some home to carve.

Can you tell what they are??

It's Mario and Luigi from Mario Bros!

We don't know much about pumpkin carving skills, but we think they came out pretty great! Auntie V had so much fun doing these pumpkins, she went out and got 2 more to go with them!

It's Yoshi and the 1-up mushroom.

As we said earlier, Howl-oween means costumes. Trust us when we say this, it's not our favorite part. Another reason we don't understand all the excitement. Costumes are uncomfortable. But Mom gets all giddy and grins from ear to ear when she sees us in our costumes. She and everyone else think we look 'soooo cute'. We always looks cute! Hmph! Anyway, we do it for her cuz she's the bestest Mom there is. She does have pretty good taste though. Mom was thinking she probably wasn't going to get us new costumes this year (which we were secretly crossing our paws for.. shhh, don't tell her.) because she couldn't find anything cute or reasonable priced ones. But she made a recent trip to PetSmart and found some for 50% off and could NOT pass them up.

Here I am in my costume. It might be a little hard to tell what I'm suppose to be, but I'm a Mummy. Auntie V says it's a perfect costume for me 'cause she says I'm a "Mummy's Boy". Get it? Like Momma's boy. Ya, I wasn't amused either. These things always make me feel weird, so I wasn't moving for the first 5 minutes I had it on.

My brother didn't seem to have a problem with it. The costume tag said it's a 'Demon'. But Mom didn't like that word and decided he looks more like a Dragon. I think he looks pretty cool actually. And Swisher is happy with his costume.

We're still not sure what our plans for Howl-oween are. I'm pretty sure we're going to be giving out candy with Mom. It's always a gamble on how many trick-o-treaters we will get. Hopefully no kids come and Swish and I can tear up all the candy. Bol.

Anyway, we want to wish everyone and everydoggy a safe and happy HOWL-oween!

Lots of Licks,
Oakley and Swisher

p.s. Thanks Auntie V for your help.
