Krewe of Barkus!

Now that the town we live in has a Dog Park, there have been some events (which, we've covered in the past.. we've been to every single one of them so far!!). 

Well, it's that time again! The Tupelo Bark Park is putting on a great Mardi Gras dog parade! It is going to be sooo fun! 

Momma said that I will be going for sure, but she's been debating on letting Tiki come too. (Colossus is still a satellite dish head, so he will get a ton of treats all to himself while watching Animal Planet and probably sleeping on the couch~ Even though we aren't suppose to be up there!~) 

Momma went to the store to see what kinds of outfits they have for a dashing pup, like myself, to wear for Mardi Gras. Can you believe she couldn't find ANYTHING???  All kinds of masks for the humans to wear, but Nada~Zip~Zero for the pups. :( 

So, she is thinking of trying to find some Mardi Gras fabric and making me a bandanna to wear. Not as glamorous as I had hoped.. I was thinking feathers and beads and Masks... *sighs*

I'll have to update everyone when the time gets here about how the parade went. :)

I'm a Super-Star! I'm Famous! I'm..

Ok, so I'm totally not famous... but I CAN be a super-star! Why? Because this morning Momma found out that I am in a published book!  That's right! She went to check the mail and found a package from Ms. Paris of DogTipper, Momma didn't remember signing up for any contests recently, because we've just been so busy, so she was really surprised to find that package. She opened it up and this was what was inside..

This is the book! 

"Wow!" Momma thought. "What a cool prize!" Then she opened up the book and found a Christmas Card. It is a really pretty one, with DogTipper's Tiki & Iria on the front. Here... I'll show you!

The front of the card

Isn't that the prettiest Christmas Card? Well, then Momma thought "Wow.. must be a Christmas present" and started to feel sad because she wasn't expecting it, and hadn't even gotten around to sending out our Christmas cards, let alone any presents!  But, then she opened the card up, and read what was inside! 

"Dear Heather, Many Thanks for your contribution to our new cookbook! Happy Holidays to you all! Paris"

OMD! Momma couldn't believe what she read! She quickly flipped through the book.. and there I was!! I was on page 123!! 

There I am!! And that is the recipe we shared! 

Momma had forgotten all about sharing our favorite recipe with DogTipper! And now, there it was! In a Real Published Book! 

That is so right.. we do love our treats!

Momma was so excited that she first texted Daddy, since he was at work, cause she wanted to tell everyone she knew, and he was (of course) first on the list! BOL! Then she started snapping all kinds of pictures to share with all of our family and friends! 

I'm licking my lips, because I know that we are going to be trying ALL of the recipes that are in the book! 

This was so exciting to find out! We hope that you buy a copy.. not just because I'm in it (although that is a GREAT reason BOL!) , but because there are a lot of great recipes from other DogTipper fans and they all look amazing! 

Homemade treats are always the best, because you don't have to worry about where they've come from, or if there is a recall or if they are safe for your pups. And now, with this handy new book, you don't have to worry about trying to find a good recipe  :-) 

You can find the book here: Order this amazing book! 

Also, Check out DogTipper.. they always have amazing tips for healthy, happy living with your pups. (They even have a cat version for the feline fans.. CatTipper

This was such a great surprise! Lets go to the kitchen Momma! There are treats that need to be made!!

Christmas Parade!

I got to be in the Christmas parade!!! The Bark Park had a spot, and invited all the regulars to attend. It was so fun! I was a reindeer  and had a little sidecar that had a stuffed pup with a Santa hat BOL! 
Lounging around waiting for it to begin

Got any treats Momma?

This poodle was dyed to look like he was wearing a Santa Suite! BOL

Loved the sweater on this pup.. but it was like, 80* outside.. They just don't make cute Christmas outfits that are for warm weather. 

Ms. Summer was wearing a full dog costume! BOL!! She was dying of heat by the end of the parade.. poor girl! 

Two cute pups 

The big pup of the two was just talking, talking, talking to everyone! BOL! 

Got tired and laid down while waiting

So did they :) 

So Much Attention! GAH!! I'm loving all this!! I may be getting a huge head from all the attention!! 

Laying down in the middle of the road during a stop in the parade. So many people wanting to pet me.. I was running back and forth across the street.. BOL! 

Our group of great people and dogs :) 

Even the Grinch had his pup with him!!

First EVER Barktoberfest in Tupelo!!!

Oh My Dog! Not only do we have a new dog park.. they hosted the very first ever Barktoberfest! Right here in Tupelo! I was so excited to go!  So, Momma, My older human brother RW and I went out to the Bark Park and had a lot of fun. There were a lot of tents set up with all kinds of cool information and even some really yummy smelling things. And other dogs! There were a lot of really friendly pups there! 

Me checking out all the sights. 

My silly human brofur, RW holding our "door prizes"

Why am I still on this leash? Usually you let me run free here! 

You seriously want me to go through this thing? I don't think so.. 

Meeting a nice lady from the Tupelo animal hospital.

Me laying in a shady spot meeting another pup

This cutie was only a couple months old! 

Such a pretty girl!

This was my pal. We kept bumping into each other, and we both really wanted to play! 

This sweet girl is a husky mix.. and she looks a LOT like me!! 

A lot of pups wore costumes, he was one of them. 

checking out the microchiping tent. I already have one, but it was good to know they had it there

This girl had on such a cute lil dress!

Checking out the girl pup in the cute dress... not to worry.. I'm fixed! BOL! 

I had to laugh.. this pup had his owner all tied up! BOL! 

Momma and RW loved this pup..he came as the Chik-Fil-A Cow! 

I'm not sure why they were letting these mini horses in.. I thought it was a DOG park.. oh well, they were really friendly. :D 

I smell treats in these bags!! 

Checking out pups!

Another pretty GSD

This one had to have won best costume.. BOL! What a great sport that poodle was to be dyed like that! 

Hey Momma! They have drinks and food in here! 

Can't wait til Next Year!!

Some explaining to do...

First, you'll probably see a lot more of Magneto then of Colossus and I. It's not because he's more loved or anything.. it's because he actually does GREAT around other people and dogs.. and well, Colossus and I don't. 

The reason Colossus isn't getting along with others is because we've recently discovered he has what is called "Black Skin Disease." Sounds yucky.. and it is.. but thankfully it is not contagious. It is genetic. So, along with him having the funky fur, he is now loosing the fur and has rough dark skin around his tail. :(  He's on special meds and shampoo... and has to wear a cone of shame.. 

I make looking like a satellite dish look good right?? :-) 

Even though it isn't contagious.. it doesn't look all that great either. And we don't want people freaking out thinking that their dogs may get sick. :-( It was a hard decision to make, but until he starts to get some of his fur back, it was one that needed to be done. He IS getting a ton more loves on though.. too much if you ask me. Always cuddling (when he doesn't have the "Goop" on that is) and getting yummy treats. Momma says they have medicine in them, but they smell like liver to me! No fair I tell ya! 

As for myself.. well, I've just been grouchy. Not sure why. I do great at home. But sometimes I whine too much when there are other dogs at the dog park.. a really deep, loud whine. It scares people. Momma knows it isn't really scary.. but it SOUNDS scary. I just really want to play, but make weird loud noises. Momma is planning to work more with me.. in the near future. But until I can learn to behave (again) she says she just can't risk taking me to VERY public places. :( I know.. I'm sad too. 

So, with all the new Dog Events coming up, because of the brand new dog park, Magneto is the one who gets to go. Hopefully soon you'll see more "Public" posts that include myself AND Colossus. :)
