Oz the Terrier

It’s true lassies and lads, Trev has inspired a Limerick by Oz The Terrier.

There once was a Cairn in Tennessee
who went nuts for chicken fricassee.
When he catches the smell
in his eyes the tears swell
and he trembles with pure ecstasy.

An original poem by Oz the Terrier; re-posted with permission, in its entirety, as originally posted on http://www.oztheterrier.com

Whenever I make chicken, Trev comes to sit in front of the stove. He begins staring with his laser beam eyes and his eyes literally swell up with tears from the excitement!!!! And the award for Best Doggie Drama goes to Trev Bear!!!!

From one fellow Cairn to another…Thank you Oz!!!!

Trev’s Awesome New Doggie Bed

Hey there faithful followers!!!! Trev and I are so glad you are here! My hubby came home the other evening with a big surprise for Trev…a brand new doggie bed!!!!

20130212-181453.jpg
This bed is by Pooch Planet and you can read about their therapeutic dog beds here: poochplanet
I don’t know about your special furry friends, but our buddy owns the bed, the sofa, or wherever he feels the need to cuddle up. Case and point: 🙂

So, we were pleasantly surprised to learn that Trev loves it.
Now, Trev will fall asleep between us, but travels down to his new comfy paradise after about an hour.

The covering is super super soft which you will be tempted to try out yourself with a zebra stripe burnout pattern.

It is filled with memory foam and is quite thick for a dog bed. When Trev gets up in the mornings, he doesn’t stretch around like he used to. He just jumps right up and comes to greet us in the bed. Such a blessing to see him get some relief from his achy joints.

It has a corduroy like backing. We just placed it over his old bed to make it even softer.

Here is Trev enjoying his new pad:

A hard day’s work deserves a great night’s rest…So, the next time you’re at Sam’s Club and run past one of these awesome beds, I recommend picking one up.

I have not received any money for reviewing this product. I just think it’s an awesome item and wanted to pass it along to all of Trev’s new buddies.

Trev & The Epiks Experience

Before I even get into my story today, I have to thank Will and Eko at markingourterritory for inspiring and encouraging me to post about Trev’s doggie boot experience. You see, last week, Will posted about Eko’s boot experience and I laughed so hard! Trev and I did our little dog boot dance years ago and we still laugh about it today.

Seven years ago, we decided to get our Cairn, Trev, some doggie boots. We were living in a very busy townhome complex at the time and during one of our morning walks, Trev almost stepped in broken glass…GASP!!!! Someone had apparently thrown out a glass bottle sometime during the night, which landed right on the sidewalk. After Trev and I came back inside, I did my good deed for the day and swept up the glass. There was no way I was gonna let somebody else’s little doggie get glass in their paws either!!!!
So, we got online to go “paw” shopping and the choices were absolutely overwhelming, but we decided to go with Epiks. You can find out all about their paw wear by visiting them at: www.epiks.net
or by checking out their YouTube video at:

When we opened the box, it was such a blast! These were definitely high quality shoes with memory foam lining, zippers and rubber soles with a paw imprint. Trev, however, had a different kind of reaction. His expressions are priceless!

“Hey mom, what’s that?”Trev

20130201-180212.jpg
“Naw, I think I’ll pass on this one!”Trev

20130201-180329.jpg
“Trev, wait, there could be a treat in your future…”Me

“Did you say treat?”Trev

20130201-181100.jpg
“These are so cute buddy boo!”Me

20130201-181215.jpg
“Um…”Trev

20130201-181320.jpg
“There better be a REAL treat in my future Mom!”Trev

20130201-181628.jpg
“Are you kidding me?”Trev

This picture doesn’t even need a caption!!!!!!
Whenever we need a good laugh, I just pull out the old scrapbook page:

I know I’m promised to smile every time I see it!!!!!
Have a blessed and bark filled weekend! Trev and I thank each and every one of you for following us!!!!

Trev’s Favorite Homeade Treats

Hello, woof and welcome dear followers!!!! We are so glad you are here!!!! Tonight I wanted to share a great dog treat cookbook with you:

20130121-215515.jpg

20130121-215522.jpg

It’s The Organic Dog Biscuit Cookbook by the Bubba Rose Biscuit Company. It’s A Formal Affair is our favorite recipe to recommend. Because Trev has such a sensitive tummy, we had to purchase Hill’s Science Diet treats. The cost really began to add up fast and as soon as we turned around, the bag was empty. I found this book on Amazon and never looked back! The book actually pays for itself with your very first batch. In fact, depending on how thick I make the treats, I can usually make 100 biscuits per batch.

Our Wednesday Morning Walk

When Trev and I awoke this morning, we found our little corner of the world covered in a blanket of ice. Trev wasn’t concerned about the cold in the very least. He was just ready to go…

The trees were caked in crystal icing and the cars were growing icicle beards.

As every dog owner knows, each dog does think they are part bloodhound. Here is Trev…hot…on yet another trail:

20130116-120118.jpg

As I followed my favorite four paws clip clopping in the back door, we were greeted with a warm welcome. Thank you Lord for the heat on these cold winter mornings. With an empty leash, I set my boots aside to dry:

20130116-121726.jpg

Tending to his paws, I pull down his towel and bend down to dry him off. He becomes a total squirrel, frisky as ever. Isn’t it amazing how a dog can smile with his eyes?!

20130116-122228.jpg

20130116-122242.jpg

Now, we all know what comes at the end of these daily ventures, nothing less than the ever anticipated, TREAT!!!!

20130116-122653.jpg

May you have a blessed and bark filled day and don’t forget to give those little angels an extra treat today.

Love,
