What is your idea of perfect happiness? A pretty perfect day for me would be waking up to go for a horseback ride, then time spent with my nephews doing something silly like miniature golf or going to an arcade. In the afternoon, I would head to Animal Haven Shelter and roll up my sleeves to help out with the animals, whether bathing them, cleaning up or helping to teach them skills that will increase their chances of adoption. The ending to a perfect day is seeing a dog or cat go home with their new family and then for me to head back to my house to snuggle with my own animals. If I had to pick just one moment, it would be sitting in a field on a sunny day watching my animals romp around.

Love Love Love Liver! Unofficial Product Review

Dogs love any kind of tasty training reward. No matter what my Vet says, I will never say no to meat of any kind. Dogs love treats.  I wasn't asked to do this product review. My female I think, just tried to bribe me or maybe assuage her guilt by giving me freeze dried liver.  Considering I'm a dog, and I don't even know what "assuage" means, all I really care about is the fact that she had LIVER.


My review of Etta Says! Chicken Liver dog treats, begins with smell.  No offense to the manufacturer but I could totally smell through the packaging. I'm not sure if they meant for that to happen. It sure didn't help my female trying to sneak up on me with them. BOL.

Artist Loves Dog - BZTAT declares love for me!

While my female was at BlogPaws West, besides talking with pet bloggers she actually spent time thinking about me. Color this dog surprised!

Yes, I assumed she was all sorts of busy enjoying her time away from this grouchy puppy. Having a peaceful, uninterrupted glass of wine, sans pushy pointy German Shepherd nose.  Enjoying a non-barking uninterrupted conversation with @HoustonDogBlog.

In reality, she missed me and while she was "networking" with @BrewskieButt's mom (Hi Vicki!), they both took a moment and @BZTAT lovingly declared on camera her love for me! Yes, me! ME!!! Sorry for the excited all caps but I totally adore non-relatives who without payment, declare a love or even weak affection for me. A known furry and somewhat grouchy, certainly petulant, now senior grrl.
