Some Pre-Halloween Fun....

It's almost time for Halloween, are you ready for it? I started putting up some cool new decorations this year!! Having never celebrated at home, I really do love these holidays, and feel like a kid deciding what decorations to use and where to put them... It's so exciting, lol....

I even got two Halloween coffee mugs this year, one for Dustin and one for myself. I just did it for the fun of it, and they were cheap! Today I was putting up "spider webs" and Max was sitting right there watching me decide how to put it up, so before stretching it out I decided to wrap it around Max's head for fun to see what he would do, clearly he didn't want it on him, because he just sat there, didn't move an inch, lol... The poor little guy! I didn't keep it on for long, but he looked so cute that I had to take a pic of him :) My cute little puppy Ewok!! LOL

On my next Halloween post I'll be putting up pics of the decorations all done :)

Inexpensive Toy For Dogs...

Need an inexpensive fun toy for your pup? Get ANYTHING cardboard and let them rip it up!! It's not only fun for them, it's fun for you to watch!! It can be pretty cute too, lol...

Max LOVES playing with empty plastic water bottles and random pieces of cardboard, I got this video of him playing with cardboard the other day and thought I would share with my family and friends :)

Chunky Monkey - My New Favorite Ice Cream...

I have just recently started watching Pretty Little Liars on Netflix, I decided I needed to find out what all the hype was about. I keep seeing statuses on Facebook about how shocked they were etc. etc., so I decided to start watching. Normally it takes the first few seconds to pull me in, and if that doesn't happen, well then I'll never get into it, just like with a book for me.

Well I am now TOTALLY hooked on this series!! Thank you to all you avid watchers (insert sarcastic voice here), for now getting me addicted to yet another series :)

I just LOVE Netflix. Being able to watch your favorite movie or TV series is SO much better than having to deal with the millions of adverts that disrupt our viewing on regular TV!

I just got WAAAAY off subject here... Oops!! So what I am trying to say, is that you guys have got me addicted to Pretty Little Liars now, and last night while watching one of the episodes Aria mentioned that she'd like to eat some Chunky Monkey. I have heard of this before but this was the second time I heard it and decided to use my dear "old" friend Google and find out what this Chunky Monkey was.

To my surprise it was an ice cream flavor made by BEN & JERRY'S, a REALLY deliciously creamy ice cream!! Dustin had to go out, so I made him go get me some of this Chunky Monkey to try out. I wasn't sure if I'd like it, BUT with the first spoonful I put in my mouth, I am instantly in love with the BURST of Banana ice cream flavor and the BIG chunks of Fudge and the Walnuts all mixed in with it!! Instant addiction I tell you, lol... Not too sure who to "blame" THIS addiction on now though?!? :D

Max Has A Guest....

On Saturday Dustin, Max and myself drove to the Petco in Troy, MI. They were having an adoption event there, with Home FurEver Rescue dogs. Max needs a play mate to play with during the day to get some extra exercise and also to have some company. Dustin liked a picture of a dog on the Home Furever Rescue website and he was there too.

Dustin found him and showed me his crate, Max met him through the crate and they seemed fine. We decided we would like to see if adopting him would work out. His story is also a bit sad, but it wasn't the reason we took a liking to him, he is also pretty cute. Dustin filled out the adoption papers, one of the ladies took him out the crate and we took him and Max outside to interact a bit. Things went pretty well. His foster Mom came over to meet us and spoke to us a bit about him, and then she wanted to come over on Sunday with the dog to see how he interacted in the new environment and with Max, and how Max would be etc. with them both being male. They both got on really well and both have the same energy level, so it was really nice to see Max playing so much and running around. She asked if Dustin and I would like to foster him for a few days to see how it goes and to see if we would "survive" their energy, and if it really was going to go well. Dustin wasn't here, so I decided to give it a try. I filled out the foster forms and so he stayed with us, and has been with us since Sunday.

Max is absolutely loving having a friend, Dustin has also really taken a liking to him. I like him too, but am still trying to adjust to having another dog in the house right now.

We don't have to decide right now if we are going to move forward and adopt, but we will have him here until we make the decision. He is also a small breed dog, but Max is still SO "petite" (can I say that about a male? lol) next to him.

Here are some pics I took of them both on Sunday....

This is his pic and story :

This little fellow is so happy to get a chance to enjoy his life. Unfortunately, he has spent his life kept in a crate in a garage or tied up in the yard of his previous owner no matter what the season. Now he is safely in a foster home that can give him all the love and attention he deserves! Chewy was given his nickname because of his cute Lhasa Apso underbite- he looks like he's smiling! Chewy is a young dog and loves to play. He is very active but is also a little lover. He likes to give hugs to his human companions and give them sweet kisses on the neck.

If you are interested in adopting or even fostering dogs go their website, they also have a Facebook page.
