Dog Wants a Kitty-HILARIOUS new video from Pets Add Life (PAL)

Hi everyone!

Well, if I  were living with Mom and Dad first, then I might have acted like this when they brought Cody home. But….Cody was living with them first!

Founded by the American Pet Products Association (APPA), the PAL campaign is designed to demonstrate the joys and benefits of responsible pet ownership and encourage increased animal adoption.

Visit PAL online at https://www.facebook.com/PetsAddLife or http://petsaddlife.org/.

As for me? I have a kitty brother and couldn’t be happier!! Pets DO “add life!”

Barks and licks and love, 

Dakota

Will you help my kitty brother? Vote for AmazeCats Next Top Cat!

Hi everyone! It’s Dakota, and today I am gonna do something super brotherly (but don’t you dare tell that I did this!) You see, my brother, Cody is participating in a contest, and since he is NOWHERE near as adorable as I am, (BOL!), he NEEDS VOTES!

Look at this face:

cody please vote

Pretty pitiful isn’t it? Can’t SOMEONE teach this guy how to SMILE?  He has an expression like “Uh, duh…did you call me?” BOL!

The contest is being held by AmazeCats

Who is AmazeCats? Glad you asked! AmazeCats makes:

Famous Cats of the Internet Playing Cards

The famous cats of the internet that we all know and love are coming together to help cats in need. Our feline friends have joined forces to bring you a cool deck of playing cards featuring their adorable photos on each card. You can play cards, hang out with your favorite internet cats and donate to a great cat charity all at the same time. How neat is that?

Every purchase is a donation! All of the proceeds from this deck will be donated to Stray Cat Alliance, a great non-profit organization aimed specifically at caring for and finding homes for stray cats.

Vote for AmazeCats Next Top Cat

Because there are many special needs cats with way more votes than my brother, (and in all honesty they are more deserving, I am not kidding when I say that, I mean that with all of my heart) he won’t win the contest.  That’s ok! He just wants to finish in the Top 32!

Here is the video that my Mom submitted for Cody (the intro was done by AmazeCats)

Isn’t that the most EMBARRASSING THING EVER?

Do you feel sorry enough to vote for my slightly rotund feline family member?

If so, you can vote once a day UNTIL MARCH 29th! Cody has a few blogging buddies who are also in the contest and they would love to make it into the top 32 as well! The cool thing is you can VOTE FOR MULTIPLE CATS IN ONE DAY! So when you vote for Cody you can vote for them too!

Sorry to ruin your day with a kitty on the blog, but sometimes with family you just gotta do what you gotta do!

Thanks for your support!

Barks and licks and love, Dakota

Happy Holidays From Us, To YOU!!!

Mom, my brother Cody and I would like  to take a moment to wish ALL OF YOU the HAPPIEST OF HOLIDAYS!  We hope that whatever you celebrate, you have your loved ones around you,  lots of toys to play with, good food to eat and good health to last you a lifetime!!

We are grateful for each and every one of you and we look forward to more fun times with you in 2012!!!

Barks, licks, love and HOLIDAY CHEER!!!!

Dakota, my brother Cody  and “Mom”

We are particularly grateful to Rosie, the beautiful, brilliant, talented and loving daughter of Priscilla from one of our favorite blogs:

EVA THE SHELTIE

(please click on the above link to check out their blog)

for creating our GORGEOUS

holiday card!!!

If you would like to enlist the graphic design services

of Rosie, you may find her HERE


FROM ROSIE: My name is Rosie and I am a freelance designer and a learning photographer. I started creating photo montages of my sheltie, Eva, during my free time as a hobby. I then went on to creating more banners for my good friends, and now it has turned into a small business.

I am self-taught and still learning, but I hope you enjoy my designs and please contact me if you are interested in having one.

Photo Montages are for everybody! Although most of my clients are breeders to advertise their kennels and successful dogs, I also create montages for pet owners and dogs that have gone to the rainbow bridge. Photo montages are very useful when advertising a litter, a stud dog, or a great win!

I have created many banners and website headers with all happy clients. I hope you will be one of them!

Thank you Rosie!!! We love YOU!!!!!!!

Caren, Dakota and Cody

“Gimme the snack already!”

It’s snack time at my house.

Enough with the teasing

Just give me the snack already!

My New Toy!!

Mom sure made up for not allowing me to blog by presenting me with this wonderful toy made by

Nina Ottosson!

Mom has a friend named Baby Patches and Baby Patches has a wonderful web site called Nip And Bones, LLC.

Mom visited one day and found me the fantastic toy,

Dog Finder, by Nina Ottosson.

Here is how the toy is described on Baby Patches’ website:

“The idea behind the Dog Finder is the dog or cat is to look for treats by moving blocks in four different directions. The block can only be lifted at the end of each track. Under each block there is a depression where treats can be hidden… ”

  • Skill Level: Intermediate
  • Suits dogs and cats of all ages and sizes
  • A tricky and activating game for you and your dog or cat
  • Plastic, easy to clean
The Dog Finder also comes with a handy booklet “Fun Challenging Games & Puzzles” that you can play when using this toy. It also includes a Training Guide and a CD. Like the doggie on the cover says “not that I need it!”
Mom said she was surprised at just how fast I learned how to use this puzzle.
Why should she be surprised? I am a SHELTIE after all!
We are listed as number 6 in intelligence out of 100 doggies! I’m no slouch!
Mom timed me when I first used this puzzle and she said it took me less than 60 seconds to figure it out!
Mom didn’t even have to explain it to me. I saw where she put the  mouth watering  treats that Baby Patches’ Mommy sent to me as a surprise ,and it was off to the races!
Click on the photo to see all of the delicious treats!
Check out the delicious dog treats here
Mom said her favorite part of watching me play with the Dog Finder was when I would pick up the hidey bones that the treats go under,  carefully  bringing them over to my coffee table fort and depositing  them underneath.
The first time I played with the Dog Finder, I put at least half of those hidey bone covers in my fort! It made me feel secure to keep them there, safe from the meddling paws of my kitty brother, Cody.
Check out how smart I am, you can even hear my heavy breathing, I was so excited!
Be sure to watch til the end!
This is my favorite toy now and Mom said she wishes she had pawchased it long ago.  She was just too cheap at the time and didn’t.
She said that she loves it so much and loves the quality that she is going to buy me MORE Nina Ottosson toys  from Nip and Bones! YAY!! There are many wonderful toys made by  Nina Ottosson on the Nip and Bones website.
Mom said it is going to be super hard to decide which one to pawchase next.
 I think she should leave that decision up to me!
I can easily go without blogging if it means I am going to get great toys like this!
The problem is, guess who else likes it?
Mom THOUGHT she had put it out-of-the-way when she laid the box on top of the dining room table.
As you can see, she thought WRONG

Look closely in the box and you will see what I mean

When I am done playing Mom has to hide the Dog Finder in the closet with the door shut.
I don’t want any kitty germs on it!
Barks and licks and love, Dakota
Mom and I weren’t compensated in any way for this review. Mom pawchased the above toy on her own. Baby Patches’ Mom only gave us the treats as a special surprise and we say THANK YOU!!!!

Friday The 13th, Victory Is Mine!!!

Hi my fellow furries! I am in a great mood today (insert evil laugh). You know how they say that Friday the 13th is the day that bad things happen? Are you superstitious? No?  Maybe you should reconsider that thought.

Mom and Cody got up early this morning to go to Blogger to write their blog and guess what they saw?  They saw THIS message:

Blogger is currently unavailable

Blogger is unavailable right now. We apologize for this interruption in service.

Please visit Blogger Status for additional details.”

My quest to take over as the Master blogger in this family is right on course.

The blog-o-sphere will be mine my little cat brother! Allllllll mine!!!

Now go and chase some mice and get outta my face!

Barks, licks, evil laughs and happy tail wags!!

Dakota
