What was I thinking?!

See this little face.....innocent little Ebby!
Well she's not so innocent......or maybe I am not too bright. This morning while we were on our morning walk, Ebby was taking her tinkle and I decided to stick my head right into her stream.......I know what you are thinking, I just don't know what I was thinking! BOL!
Mommy yanked me out and shouted "Bruschi what are you doing?!", and my head and neck was dripping in yellow liquid! GROSS!

So because it was morning and Mommy had to rush to get to work, she shoved me in the kitchen sink for a quick bath! I look THRILLED don't I?!

Get me out of here!! I am way too big for the sink!

Lesson of the day: Do not stick your head under another dog while they are peeing.

Saying Goodbye to a Dear Friend

Yesterday, we received some very sad news from one of Mommy's bestest friends in the whole world, about her precious Lab Maddie. Maddie crossed Rainbow Bridge yesterday. It was very unexpected and very sudden. Poor Maddie had cancer growing in her chest, and she didn't show any signs of not feeling good up until the last couple of days. Maddie's Mommy Caitlyn had to make the toughest decision of her life.......but did what was best for Maddie.
Please say a prayer for Maddie as she crosses the rainbow bridge, and send pawsitive vibes to her doggy brother Brady, her Mommy Caitlyn and her Daddy Jeremy.
We love you all and will miss you terribly Maddie!

Here is a poem we found online we'd like to share and dedicate to Maddie titled "The New Rainbow Bridge" :

By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,

Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.

Where the friends of man and woman do run,

When their time on earth is over and done.

For here, between this world and the next,

Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.

On this golden land, they wait and they play,

Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.

No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,

For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.

Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,

Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.

They romp through the grass, without even a care,

Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.

All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,

Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.

For just at that instant, their eyes have met;

Together again, both person and pet.

So they run to each other, these friends from long past,

The time of their parting is over at last.

The sadness they felt while they were apart,

Has turned into joy once more in each heart.

They embrace with a love that will last forever,

And then, side-by-side, they cross over… together.

I'm Dog Sitting!

She's a chocolate lab with bright blue eyes. Daddy's firefighter friend just got her last week and asked me to puppy sit her!
Look at the three of us! It worked out nicely that I have 3 beds in the living room!

Life with Ebby

Well, I can't complain about my new foster sister Ebby. We are a lot alike and are getting alone just fine! She likes to do whatever I do, especially lay on the couch with me. But she is much more behaved than I am......she waits for the humans to invite her to the couch before jumping up. Show off!

Last night while we were getting ready for Game 7 of the NBA Finals, we heard some bag crunching sounds coming from the kitchen so we both ran in to investigate!

Oh it's tortilla chips!! Down here Mom, Down here!
(She didn't share, can you believe it!)

BOL! Ebby has such a silly smile....her teeth are all crazy and she's even got a spot where she is missing a tooth! Mommy thinks it's adorable. What do you think?

This is a picture of us during the Game......when we were all happy and having fun.
Of course.....the last 6 minutes of the game we were not......but hey, at least I have a cool jersey! Better luck next year Celtics!

Me and the Ebs

Just checking in to tell you I like my new friend Ebby! We don't play with each other at all, which Mommy thinks is weird, but we also don't mind being around each other. We eat together and walk together and hang out with the humans at night together, but there is no playing going on at all. I think Ebby doesn't know how to play! She really likes My Mommy though, and guess what.....I am not being jealous about it either!! I am a good foster brother Mommy says!!

Meet Foster Dog #3!

Meet Ebony!
This is the foster dog Mommy picked up last night. Her name is Ebony, but we are calling her Ebby for short.

They say she is a pug mix, but they aren't sure mixed with what. She was a stray that they pulled from a shelter. She had a microchip but it wasn't registered, and no one came looking for her. She was obviously someone's pet as she is very well behaved, knows her commands, and loves people!
What do you think she is mixed with? She weighs 28 lbs and they are estimating her to be about 4 years old.

I think she might have Staffordshire Bull Terrier mixed with Pug in her?
Thoughts anyone?

Morning Walks

Morning walks are the best, especially here in Florida where it gets blazing hot by 9am. Just wanted to share a few pictures of what my morning walks often consist of!

I love hiding in palm trees! It is my new obsession. I used to stick to the streets but now I seek out the palms, climb in, lift a a leg, and know the rest.

And nothing beats finding a GIANT stick! The Bigger the Better! I can carry it for miles like this! All the neighbors chuckle as I walk by. I can hear them thinking "oh that silly Bruschi is at it again!" I always carry the stick home but the humans won't let me bring it inside! I carried it all that way for nothing?!
