BlogPaws was a big deal I’m still reading about people who are recovering from it, nearly two weeks out. That would include yours truly. For today’s This n That Thursday, I thought it would be fun to holler at the peeps who are hosting giveaways of Jones Natural Chews as a result of BlogPaws. If you weren’t there, you missed out on massive product giveaways. We had a lot of treats to send home with people.
Don’t lose heart! There are a couple of bloggers who are willing to share the loot! There are also bloggers, like Carma Poodale, who have shared with local dog shelters. Jones donated the leftovers from the show to a Golden Retriever rescue, who, in turn, donated much of that to local dog shelters. Happy dogs all over the country!
Now wasn’t that fun?
Sugar, over at Golden Woofs (everyone knows Sugar, right?), brought a Curly Q Bully home from BlogPaws and enjoyed it thoroughly. Her mama says she can’t have bones, and really only does beef, so I’m going to have to be a little creative in finding Sugar another treat. I think Jones Windees would thrill Miss Sugar.
In other news, on the home front, my mom is recovering nicely from her knee replacement surgery. I’m sure she’d argue about that, since she’s not up and running all over with her dog, can’t even drive yet, but it’s only been three weeks since the surgery. Mom is getting around beautifully, skimming the ground with that walker, walking around the house without it. I think not driving is frustrating to her, but progress is progress. She’s doing amazingly well.
Storms in Oklahoma seem to be a little late this year, but probably only because spring is late, as it is for nearly everyone. Y’all know that Moore and Shawnee were devastated by tornadoes a couple of weeks back. Or has it only been a week? My goodness. That was only the beginning of tornado season for us. And do we have the closet under the stairs cleaned out and ready to dive into? Noooo. *sigh* Maybe that will be this afternoon’s project …
Ryan Gosling is growing, and uglier by the moment. This is a photo I just took:
Ryan is getting SO BIG. And now he’s not just eating my hair, he’s pulling it.
Good heavens, he’s grown! I’m thinking that when he actually gets feathers (nearly four weeks and no real feathers!) I’ll stop letting him sit on my chest and shoulders. Can you imagine bringing a fully grown goose in the house to hold? Not to mention the goose poo when they’re fully grown …
Patches is my paranoid dog. She’s paranoid about the ducks. She’s paranoid about the rabbit which likes to go all male rabbit reproductive action on her face or leg. She’s paranoid about all kinds of things. I didn’t help matters any.
Last, but not least, one of my husband’s coworkers is doing the unthinkable. His family adopted a shelter dog and has decided that they don’t have enough time to care for it. So I’m doing the kind thing and letting you all know that there’s a lovely half-lab in the Tulsa area looking for a home. Her name is Maggie, she’s had her shots, been spayed and microchipped, and is a sweet girl. If you’re interested in giving her a loving home, please just leave a comment and I’ll get back to you with the guy’s info.
Don’t get me started …
