Dog Loves Rabbit - Rabbit Loves Human - Human Loves Dog

Grouchy Puppy birthday celebrations continue! Blog Paws West had lots of dog people, cat people and a certain human mom to a bunny rabbit.  Not Mr. Bunny Rabbit, the puppet from Captain Kangaroo but the adorable Vicki Cook, hard working mom to equally adorable Bunny Jean Cook!

My female captured a quiet moment at the start of the pet conference action and here is @vscook sharing some love, which I totally appreciate especially during my birthday homecoming festivities. November 9 is almost here!

Birthday Celebration Giveaway - Grouchy Puppy Style

Welcome to the Pawty!

November 9
is my official personal homecoming day, and a HUGE holiday around here. (By "here" I mean my house, not the city and county of San Francisco, though I'm working with my District Supervisor. BOL)

This year we want YOU to join us in the celebration!!  My friend Ruby Dog gave us the great idea of a GIVEAWAY. If all goes well, hopefully this is the first of many giveaways throughout the holiday season.

Since I love giving away cuddles, furry drive-bys and kisses when I'm on my "wanna go for a walk" and when visitors are over, we thought why not give a special gift directly to one of YOU! I can't mail a cuddle but I sure can mail this Morphing Mug we had made on Zazzle!

Just like me, it has two sides and changes in an instant.  Click through some of the past year's family, romp and playtime and tour guide moments, and you'll see what I mean.

This is your chance to wake up in the morning looking at my gorgeous "mug" on your own mug. Without the morning breath. When it’s cold, it’s just a simple black cup. When you add any hot beverage (water, tea, coffee, etc.), the cup turns white and the image comes to life! Woof!

What is your idea of perfect happiness? Well, you would not believe the avalanche of sadness and worry and stress I’ve had in the last 15 months or so, with several deaths and several ongoing illnesses in the family. So, my answer is probably different than it would be years ago or years to come. For me, right now, perfect happiness is being free from worry or grief. Other than that, I’m happiest on days that are just warm enough, just sunny enough, just quiet enough, so that I can be fully present in the love and abundance of life with the people and dogs I adore. Our society focuses on action, and I’m a very task-oriented person, but I think true happiness comes more from being than from always doing, doing, doing. When I make wishes, they are usually for a prosperity of peace and ease.
