Dogs in Silly Situations

Okay, I suppose the title should be “dog” in silly situations.  My dog. My Mosey is the most patient dog in the world for putting up with what we put him through.

Love the little stinker. I love putting him in human situations such as:

Puzzle Time.
Dance Party.

Shoutout to Mosey for bearing with our antics. I call it reciprocity for the hours and hours he wants us to play fetch with the tennis ball when we’d rather be eating/sleeping/watching tv/blogging/playing Madden.


Have you noticed a major slow-down in the blogging world this week? I guess bloggers get all hyped up for Christmas (especially the kind of blogs who like to advise you on how to decorate or what to buy for your loved ones) and then take it easy the week between Christmas and New Years. I have been taking it easy ever since getting my new job. Wish I had the opportunity to post more, but time doesn’t necessarily permit it. We’ll see how 2012 looks.

In other news, my pallet room divider got reblogged (again) and in English this time! I got credited and everything. Thanks for the uptick in views, guys!

Doggy Halloween

A few days ago, we got an invite to the Kansas-Missouri IG Rescue halloween party. A fancy new humane society complex recently opened up in Wichita, complete with a “party room” where Mosey met with over 20 other Italian Greyhounds for a “small” get-together. The dogs that Mosey fostered with were there, (we call them his “brothers”) along with other IGs from the region. Mosey always seems small to me until he gets around other IGs; at 17 pounds he was among the 3 biggest dogs there!

You might be able to tell that the bumblebee costume proved popular (there were 4 of them). Mosey’s “brothers” all had on skull-and-crossbones hoodies and two other IG’s came as a boy and girl scout. Very cute. Mosey just wore his Chiefs jacket that I made him (I’ll post DIY instructions sometime) which he’s been wearing a lot since the weather has started to cool down. It was impossible to get a good shot of the dogs because none of them would stop moving!

Mosey was a little bit of a bully, he is definitely the alpha type and finds it necessary to be the center of attention. We had to take him outside once so he could chill out a little bit. He always gets really worked up when around other dogs! Not in a bad way, he just gets really excited.

Now, before you get too worried about our social lives. Doug and I did attend a real halloween party on Friday, complete with actual human beings. I went as a lumberjack (drew on a beard with makeup) and Doug went as a pile of leaves. No pictures though since my camera battery is low (haven’t found the charger since the move) and I wanted to save my battery for the dog party :P

What did you do or are you doing tonight for Halloween?? This year will by our first year passing out candy since we’re in an actual neighborhood!
