Earth Day Challenge

Blogville Earth Day Challenge

Happy Saturday everybuddy, and Happy Earth Day.
To celebrate Earth Day some of our Blogville residents pawticipated in the Earth Day challenge. All of the entries are posted on the Blogville Arts and Entertainment Depawtment website. Do come and take a look, whether you entered or not.  

This was my entry:

Fur my entry I decided to call attention to the wilder anipals that live among us. Fur example, in my 'hood we have a grrreat many raccoons. Rumor has it that if given the chance, they will eat little white dogs (like me). This is why we never feed them or encourage them to hang around our house. At the same time, we respect them and recognize their right to live. We want to coexist in peace!

 My brother, the kitty Hazuzu, didn't enter this challenge because he was too busy earning all kinds of badges fur Cat Scouts. It's like he's obsessed!

Thank you once again to all of our Blogville furends who support the Arts and Entertainment Department, whether it is by direct pawticipation or by your encouragement. You are all wonderfur!

Thanks especially to Jakey, Director of Artistic Development. Jakey is one smart dog!

Jakey loves to share his technical skills.

Have a wonderfur Earth Day weekend!

Flowers fur Dory

Special Flowers Fur Dory

It is hard to imagine Blogville without our dear furend Dory, who has crossed the Rainbow Bridge too soon. 

In memory of Dory, we send this garden of flowers. The waterfall is to represent the River of Life.

Sweet Dory, run free!

Louisdog's This and That

Befur I start with This and That, Mimi, Hazuzu and I want to say a bit about Dory, who has crossed the rainbow bridge. This is a sad, sad day fur Blogville and for the wider world, as well. Dory was a beautifur dog with a beautifur soul. She loved her furever family and she loved life. We are so sad today.

We will keep precious Dory in our hearts.

It's time again fur a bit of this and a lot of that. Or a bit of that and a lot of this. Whichever it is, it is today.


When I visited Victoria a couple of weeks ago to see Grandma Rose, I came upon this statue of St. Francis in the garden of Grandma's Residential Care facility. I just had to have a sniff!
St. Francis loved all anipals

Here is some dog wisdom that is good fur peeps:


Yesterday we went to the park where we met a Newfoundland dog who is HUGE. His peeps say he eats more than they do. Is that possible?


Hazuzu attended a pawty with the Cat Scouts today. It was an Arabian Nights theme pawty to celebrate the April birthday and gotcha days for Cat Scouts. They do it every month. He was so excited! Fur the furst time in his life, the kitty is becoming sociable. Here are a couple of photos so you can see why he is so happy.

Hazuzu Meets New Furends

Hazuzu Meets New Furends

Meow to our Blogville Furends!  Hazuzu here... Louis said I could post today because I have grrrreat good news!

As you pawbably know, I tend to spend a lot of time by myself, roaming around the neighborhood, mainly looking fur mousies.  I was getting so bad that Mimi talked me into joining a group where I could meet some kitties who  do constructive things. She suggested Cat Scouts because I would meet pawsitive role models. I agreed to give it a try.

I hafta tell you, joining Cat Scouts is one of the best things I have ever done fur myself. The cats there are amazing and there is no end of fun things to do. I have only been there fur a couple of days and already I've made some new furends.

I even have a uniform.What do you think of it?  Do I look good?

I love my Cat Scout uniform!
  The Cat Scouts have their own university. I will be able to sign up for classes on topics that interest every cat, such as bird migrations.

Here is my Cat Scout University (CSU) ID card:

As you can see, I am a Tenderpaw. After I've been around awhile, earned some badges and done a few other things I'll be able to move up in rank.

Another grrreat thing is that I already knew a few of the Cat Scouts.

Well, I better go. It looks like Mimi is doing something in the kitchen with a chicken and I need to check it out.

Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday

Today I am joining Brian's THANKFUL THURSDAY blog hop!

Today i am thankful for ANNA

Anna loves walking with me
I met Anna when she was a little baby peep. She is Mimi's granddaughter.  At furst I was a little jealous because Mimi liked to hold her and I was afraid that Anna might take too much of Mimi's love.

Soon, pawever, I learned that Mimi has a heart full of love fur both Anna and me. That's when I started to also really love Anna.

Now Anna and I are pals. I taught her how to walk a dog and she feeds me treats. What could be better than that?

I am so thankful!!

Grandma Rose

Visiting Grandma Rose

I have written about Grandma Rose before, so you probably know that she is Mimi's mother. Grandma Rose is 93 years old and last month she moved into a residential care facility.  Last week,Mimi and I drove to Victoria to see her. 

I was invited to go because I am an impawtant member of our family pack. 

I have known Grandma Rose all my life. She likes me, and when she lived in her own place I was always welcome. I would often sit beside her as she watched TV or read a book. She never minded the noise I made with my squeaky toys and I never minded her watching tennis (her favorite).

Actually, she was easy going with me and the other family dogs unless we left pee mail in her house, in which case she was not too pleased. Pawever, if we ever did leave pee mail, she knew that it was not really the dog's fault. She would say that we needed more or longer walks.

Grandma Rose is a tiny pawson. Every time I see her she seems a bit smaller. 

Here is a photo of Grandma Rose and me. It was taken last Saturday. She asked fur me to sit on her bed.

Grandma Rose is my furend.

Grandma Rose used to go fur long walks by herself. Now she uses a wheelchair to get around.

Mimi is happy that Grandma Rose can still play chess.

We will be visiting Grandma Rose again before too long.
