Everyone's doing it, so we'll join in.

Here are just a few of Bender's nicknames. Not that he answers to any of them, or his real name for that matter. The Duke does not come when called, the duke comes when he feels like it.

Paws it Forward

Bender and I received a great package from Kelly and Gibson over at Corgi Butts for Paws it Forward.

We got the box last Tuesday but it was the first day of school and I've been too busy to post until now!

"Is that for ME!? I LOVE presents!"

Bender was jazzed up as soon as he saw the box. I let him help unpack his presents. He went straight for the tissue paper and took off into the living room with it.

"Ohmigosh! PAPER! How did they know!? I love to shred paper! This is the best present EVAR!"

I had to corner him, take it away and explain that the tissue wasn't part of his present. I don't think he cared, he just wanted the paper.

"Grrr. Bark. Grrr. (tearing noises) This is AWESOME!"

We got the box unpacked and got to see all his great presents!

Bender's Loot

Bender got a Kong Wubba, a bully stick, a sausage stick, some amazing smelling pumpkin treats, and some fruitables. And I got a Corgi Butts "I Kiss My Corgi on the Lips" magnet! I LOVE it!

"The Kong is mine. Corgi's don't share!"

Bender isn't too excited about the fact that I'm making him share the treats with Bones. He's been guarding the Kong with his life as well.

Thank you so much Kelly and Gibson! We love our presents!

Now for my readers! (The few of you that haven't participated yet :) ) Do you want in on the fun? Do you want to receive a package of your own for your dog and then 'Paws it Forward' to someone else?? Be one of the first 2 commenters and leave me your email address/blog to contact you and you're in!! :)

I Can Has Home?

For any of my followers in Michigan or the surrounding states or anyone willing to drive there's an adorable corgi for adoption in Mount Pleasant Michigan.

Paully is at Isabella County Animal Control Mount Pleasant, MI 989-773-9721

I've passed it on to all my family in Michigan and posted it on my facebook. I would take him if I was back in Michigan.

I keep telling Casey my ultimate dream is to one day own a home in the mountains where I can have a corgi herd. I want lots of land and lots of corgis running around.

Happy Adoption Day Bender!

In our house we don't celebrate dog birthdays. Not that I wouldn't love to, it's just that we don't know when either of the dogs were born.

Instead we celebrate Happy "We decided to dog-sit you and you never left" Day for Bender, and for Bones we celebrate Happy "I found you sitting in the street and you jumped into my car" Day.

We're all for non-traditional holidays here.

2 years ago on August 14 we brought Bender home so we could dog-sit him. The owner didn't want him back and I was already in love with him. So it came to be that I found the Corgi love of my life.

To celebrate I made him the doggie cake that Bri made Sammy over at The Adventures of Sammy. She was right, Carob powder was pretty hard to find. I had to go to 4 different stores and I finally found it in the all-natural bulk section at Fred Meyer.

Getting fancy with the frosting.
I thought the slices looked a little big, so they got to share one slice.

The cake was a huge hit. Both dogs sat with me in the kitchen while I cooked. When I began frosting the cake they began drooling. When they actually got to eat it - it didn't last more than 20 seconds. I'm not sure they really even tasted it.

Nom nom nom! I love my Happy "Bender's Day" Cake!

MMM Frosting!

Bones gets some noms too!

Corgi Torture

While moving I uncovered the dog's Halloween costumes. Bones was the lobster last year, but I decided to try the costume on Bender. I love my Corgi lobster!

Why mom? Why does I has to be a lobster?

We've Moved!

It seems as though I post a few entries and then disappear for a few weeks. Summer just seems to be a very busy time in our house.

After we returned from our 3 week cross-country trip to Michigan we packed up our house and moved! We moved a whopping 4 blocks from our old house. The new place was too good to pass up. Brand new, built this year. Came with a washer and dryer, stove, dishwasher, tons of storage/closet space and best of all AC! The rent was less as well.

Bender wasn't fond of moving. He spent the first few day in our new place here.

Shhh. I'm hidings. You can't sees me!

Yup, that's Bender hiding in the bathroom closet. He decided that was his spot and we couldn't store anything there. If we asked "Where's Bender?" 9 times out of 10 the answer would be "In the bathroom closet."

After he became adjusted to the new living situation he ventured into the bedroom.

I needs to guard my daddy when he sleeps! (Casey is somewhere under that pile of blankets and pillows.)

Once the boxes in the living room were unpacked he became adventurous and would stare out into our small backyard.

From there he decided he would patrol outside along the fence, making sure to bark at the kitties that live next door.

I sees stuffs that needs to be barked at!

Finally after a week he's back to his normal playful Bender self.

Must destroy soccer ball! GRRR!

As I write this I have a happily adjusted corgi sleeping on my feet. I think he's grown to like his new home.
