Dirt Fish

Oh boy!  Oh boy!  Oh boy!  Today.  Was.  So.  FUN!!!!!

Fostermomma went out this morning for "working brunch" (something about making so I can be safe in On-Scario) and when she got back, she loaded me up in the mobile *seatbelts everyone* and off we went to a place with lots of dirt and 2 new GIRLfriends!

I'd tell you all about it, but when we got home fostermomma said I was filthy and kerplunked me in the tub again, and now I'm exhausted, so I ask fostermomma to share some pictures. 

And go!

Play With Your Food

Food dispensing toys are a great way to keep a busy dog occupied and slow down dogs that gobble their food.  The unpredictable movements can keep your dog engaged, challenge them and can be a source of good mental exercise.
KONG makes a 'wobbler', or you can invest in a 'Tug-A-Jug', but its doesn't even have to be that difficult or expensive.  A simple plastic bottle with a large opening (such as a Gatorade bottle) can be just as useful (just be sure to remove labels, plastics rings and give it a quick wash and dry before using).

SkunkFish has been eating dinner from one for the past few days.  He was a bit apprehensive at first and wasn't quite sure what to make of the whole process, but he's slowly learning (Walrus figured it out in about 30 seconds). Its a pleasure to watch his mind work and figure out the 'game'.

 Whats your dogs favorite toy?

SkunkFish Gets A Bed

So, first of all - we was getting ready for bed last night when fostermomma says "hey SkunkFish, come cuddle for a bit".  I'd put myself right to bed in my crate, but whats a guy gonna say no to cuddles?  So out I went and got up on the people bed (are you kidding me?!?) and fostermomma and I snuggled till she was just about making sleepies.  It wasn't all night, but that was enough for me :)

Now, some super exciting news about some super exciting people that sent some electronical paper to us and fostermomma came home with a brand new, never used, SkunkFish bed of my very own - see?  Seeeeee?!?

It's a little bit country but it has a FISH on it!  Fostermomma's so funny sometimes!

Our next problem you ask?  Brother Walrus likes my bed so much, and saw how much fun I was having on it - that he wants one for his own self.  Fostermomma's gonna have to use some of her own electronical money to get him one, because my SkunkFish bed is only big enough for one of my little selves.

Thank you donar-nators!

Skunk Off!

Hi, its me, Nemo!

I wasn't here long yesterday when fostermomma picked my little self up and kerplunked me in the tub and got me all wet and soapy. It felt good!

Then fostermomma started saying "pee-yew, little fish, you smell like a skunk". The water must have activated my powers.   She tried to ignore it. Even tried to cover it up by baking fresh pumpkin pie cookies for us kids today morning, but it didn't work.

She left for a bit, while I was real good and hung out quiet in my crate. When she came back she kerplunked me right back in that tub and hosed me off again. She used some different soap, but ha! didn't work. You can't un-stink me. I'm a skunk fish after all.

Can you help fostermomma try and un-stink me? How do you un-stink a skunk fish? Fostermomma tried to Google it, but I'm the only one of me - no luck!

Oh and hey, while I have your attention - you see something wrong here? I sure love to cuddle fostermomma on the couch while I drift off to sleep, but then I don't like to cuddle no more and want to sleep all with myself. 

I says to fostermomma - "where's the skunk fish bed", but she says the rescue doesn't have any of those. She says I could ask you guys if maybe you know where I can gets one? And maybe if you might want to chip in for one? You see, I lost my wallet somewhere between sleeping in the dirty and getting found.
