We are back.... meet Gizmo!!

Oh my goodness! It has been forever since our last post and we miss you all so much!!

We are hoping to continue our adventures again and especially with warmer weather....more playtime outdoors!

First off... let me introduce you to our new member of the family, happy go lucky, Gizmo!! Our newly adopted rescue CKCS
The moment we saw Gizmo, our hearts melted..he is such a happy little boy, full of wags and licks and just gorgeous - one look at his big puppy dog eyes, how could you not fall in love?!

Gizmo, 1 yrs old - a roadtrip to his new home!

Ellie, being the B&T spoiled princess that she is, was suuuuper miffed in the beginning.. it took a week to slowly let her guard down and allow Gizmo into her space.

"This is my couch!!  Go on, pack yer bags and get on outta here!"
After a few more weeks, finally realizing that Gizmo wasn't just a temporary house guest, she began to get more curious and start play barking and engaging with Gizmo.  (Yay!) And our little boy also started coming out of his shell and adjusting to her style of play ;) They take turns chasing each other and sometimes they turn the place into a circus!

Sleepyhead... anywhere and everywhere!

...More to come! Can't wait to see what kind of trouble they will get into next.. ;)

Oregon Coast

On Thanksgiving long weekend (Oct 8-10), we drove along the Oregon Coast for some R&R with Ellie :)
Despite the forecast for a wet and chilly weather that weekend, we enjoyed a nice sunny day on Saturday!
Lots of time to run along the beaches and do some digging in the sand.. hehe
Can't wait to come back during the summer!

Cannon Beach, Oregon


Walking towards Haystack Rock on Cannon Beach..breathtaking!


"I found treasuuure! Seaweeds and shellsies!"

Looking Glass Inn in Lincoln City, Oregon
Super pet friendly, staff was courteous and accomodating!
We met lots of nice doggies and their owners as well :)

A beach nearby, just steps away from our hotel!

It was a kite competition that weekend, just perfect..cuz it was very windy!
"Ok back to my treasure..finders, keepers! kekeke"

Life Rules!

Harrow!! Miss Ellie here!
I have sneaked into Mummy's computer again, hehehe!
I'm going to take over today's blog post! Here we gooo..

Ten Rules to a Happy Dog Life!

10)  Entertain
Trust me on this one, my furry friends :O! 
I discovered that the humans will pat you more and give you more treatz if you do those funny moves.
Hehehe.. mmm..anything for the snackies! :P~~

9)  Eat your veggies!
I love grass!! They are my fav munchies after breakfast and dinner!
Good for my tummy aches and poopoo troubles :X

8)  Break the rules (sometimes..keke)
Ok, I'm a good little girl, like 99% of the time..
but sometimes it's okay if we doggies get a little wild,
as long as we don't get too carried away, right right?
Here I am sneaking away and trying to find bones in the little bushes..
but shhh don't tell my Mummy! :O

I told her I went for a little washroom break 0:)

7)  Be Brave
Weird stuff and big things are scary. 
Don't run away.. face your fear!
I'm no scaredy butt..but I gotta proceed with caution.
A few barks and batting your paw will teach them who's boss!
I got over my fear of this thing called plastic water bottles..
I'm a big girl now, har!

6)  Play
Always be ready for a game of fetch. 
The humans are funny hehe..
They throw the ball and I catch it
Then I make them chase me for it
... and they do it everytime! Gawwhaha!

5)  Be Sassy
I'm all about being obedient, but sometimes the humans push us too far..
Expect too much tricks n stuff. 
That's when I say enough is enough, and I pull a raspberry and a flip of a paw. Psch!
(But careful my friends, too much sassy might get you into trouble.. so don't cross your mums & dads, k?)

4)  Clean
I know, I know. Bath time is not the funnest.
But after bath time means more snuggies on the couch, the bed, huggles all around, and *sniff sniff* I smells good!
Plus lotsa zoomies around the house after.. woot woot!

3)  Find your Zen
Close your eyes.
Take in a deep breath, and let it alllllll out.
SIGH, Ahhhh.
Repeat 10x throughout the day.  Stay relaxed guys!

2)  Smile :D
The biggest goofiest smile always wins, hands down.
Even the grumpiest gramps can't stay mad at me. :)

And finally...

1) LOVE <3

Love love love and more love! Even when you think its enuff, stay and give more licks & snuggles <3
I love my Mummy! And my Mummy luvvs meee :-)

Eep! Mums caught me!
Bye bye for now..until next time!!

Ellie bellie

Fall is here!  We are missing the sun, warm weather, and the lazy days..oh wait, nevermind..every day for Ellie is a lazy day :-)

Ellie has gradually warmed her way into sleeping on the bed, and we gave in once, twice.. and before we knew it, every night she's got her bum parked at the foot of the bed ;) What a little sneakster she is!

Now that it's a little colder at night, you start to appreciate the extra warmth from the curled up baby furball, hehe <3

Anyhoo, here's a look back at the last days of summer......


She won't jump...but she will catch :-0!

No dogs were harmed during the making of this photo, I swear!
Ellie puts on a good act :)

Lazy Daisy <3

"Wake me up when it's dindin time! ZZzzZzzzz"

"I do tricksies for treatz! Plzz give me treatz, and not just pat pat on the headz.. plz.. :("

"Halloo?? I'm still waaaaaiting.... treat? :("

"Mummy iz asleepz...time to make a run to the cookie jar..be velly quietz...!"

Lovey Dovey

Do you miss Toby yet? We sure do! Thanks to such a fun weekend with doggies and friends, the idea of another dog is getting so tempting.. ohh we're just going to have to steal Toby more often ;)
The end of the weekend meant we had to cherish every precious minute with Toby!

Here are some of my favorite moments:
Zoom zoom.. zoomies back and forth in the garden!
"Last one to Mommy is a rotten milkbone.. kekeke!" - Ellie
"No faiiiir.. you had a head start!" - Toby
Mee-rawr! Titan, the neighbourhood cat makes an appearance!
"Na-na-na-na-boo booo! You can't get me!" - Toby
"What? I find thorny bushes quite comfy!"
Could this be a peace offering?!
Ellie shares her stick with Toby! <3

A big change of heart from Ellie since the first day they met. Let's look back at her initial reaction:
"Hi, I'm Toby!!" - Toby
"Hi, I'm.. not interested. Yawn."
- Ellie

Ouch! But of course, Toby keeps persisting and persisting ..reject after reject and no matter what.. still trying.. until finally finally finally, Ellie gets smitten...
Smooooch.... <3

Awww..don't you just love a happy ending to a happy weekend!
