March 2, 2015 – Wow, I’m three years old – 21 years old In people time ! Can you believe it? This could be an interesting year. In people years that is 21 years old, and you know what that means – I’m pretty much free to do whatever I want without pawental supervision. Hum, wonder where I should exercise that right today, you know – just to see what happens and all. Maybe that under-the-fence hole I started last fall. All I want to do is go visit my two neighbor dogs, Maggie and Buddy. They are bigger than I am and have black and white spots. I think they look like cows, but then I can be a bit sharp-tongued at times, so I’ve been told. I’ll let you know how my first big adventure turns out.
Right, like you think this is funny?
“I’m sorry Titan, but I couldn’t resist. Would you believe the devil make me do it? ”
You are beginning to sound and do things like that Momanger on Keeping Up With The Kardashians we wasted 30-minutes watching last night?
“Okay, I’ll give that one to you, it was a waste of time, but it does make things see pretty sane around here, don’t you think? Seriously, it’s that time of year again when we need to start selecting Halloween costumes for your website, so get ready. I have it scheduled for later in the week. ”

As far as I can see, it’s going to be a problematic week at best, or at least that’s the way it is starting out.
First of all my therapist call yesterday and cancelled my appointment on Wednesday. Some vague excuse about being on vacation and the long holiday weekend. Right, so now I’m stuck for eleven days without having anyone to bark my problems to.
I was snooping around Mom’s desk this morning (teach her to put a cushy easy chair at the end of her desk) and found sticky notes about Titan’s yearly checkup, Titan’s shots, Titan’s grooming and Coco’s overnight visit. Okay, Coco’s visits are always fun, but the rest, I don’t think so. I tried to scrunch them up and push them into the trash can, but that didn’t work out so well. Do you have any clue how hard it is to get a sticky note off you paws? Nope, I’m definitely not in charge of this long holiday weekend.
I did get a fun new present from Dad last Friday. A bird feeder and seed, for outside the window in Mom’s office. I wonder how many times I will scare the seed right out of those birds by charging the window from that chair. The birds haven’t found the feeder yet. Seriously how dumb are they – a built in buffet hanging out in plain sight, and they are still pecking around the back yard for food.
Now that we are talking about food, I think it is time to talk about dangerous dog treats. The majority of pet parents Continue reading

Woozers, this is my second Fathers Day celebration with my dad. Happy Fathers Day Dad!!! I’m so pawcited about it. I’m not sure what we will do. But it has to be something special because he is always helping Mom and me so much. Unfortunately, I’m not always the most gracious pup on earth. I’m thinking a gift card to one of his favorite stores would be just the thing. Oh geeze, that means getting Mom’s credit card out of her Filofax again. That is so hard to do with my paws. I don’t know why she can’t just tie it around my neck to make things easier. Just think of the money I would save her (yeah, right.)
It will most likely be something simple like sitting on the large deck watching squirrels and kicking back a brewskie or two (okay, maybe just a lick or two.) There are so many places to sit around here, it’s hard to decide. I can say one thing about Mom and Dad – they love having their sitting arrangements, inside and out. I wonder if other homes have as many as we do? Mom once said she was afraid to leave home for fear that Dad would would redesign another room or two, while she was gone.
I’m sure we will eventually move to the park bench in the back yard, so I can show off my many talents like, running full steam ahead, chasing things I don’t really see, jumping into all the bushes, pouncing on the critters in the grass and of course digging a hole or two. I love digging holes. Continue reading

I am wishing all of you a wonderful, spring-like and safe Easter weekend, wherever your travels may take you. My travels are going to be from the kitchen to the back yard and then to the office, in that order.

So today’s post is going to be one of fun filled with love. I hope you have a wonderful and happy Valentine’s Day. Ours is going to be a snuggling kind of afternoon and evening. We are expecting another major snow storm, which should be starting about now. I’m going to be tummy high in snow when I go outside later this afternoon. It’s a good thing I got my hair cut on Wednesday. The snow won’t clump in my fur like it did during the last snow we had. Somehow the words “stay in here until you thaw out” are not very comforting when you come back inside with snow clumps hanging from your fur and you have really cold feet. I’ve got it down to a science now. I whimper a bit and out comes the big towel which is wrapped around me and and then I’m cradled in Mom or Dad’s arms until I thaw out. Ah, thank goodness for doggie noises – they work every time.

Finding Valentine Day goodies on line is a major experience unto its own and not necessarily meant for us four-pawed creatures. One thing I learned for sure, they are pretty adamant about you paying for most of the goodies you choose. I tried explaining that I was almost the cutest dog on the Internet, but I quickly found out that cute will only get you so far.
IF there is one thing I dislike it is being beaten at my own game. Since this was my idea, I put on my I’m gonna win hat and kept sniffing until I came up with some really great goodies.
So grab a pawcafe’, get ready to be amazed and start planning your Valentine’s Day now.
Guess I had better get “this one” over with first. Will this Boo character ever let me have my day in the sunshine? I guess not, but this was really too cute to pass up. http://bit.ly/titansboovalentine
Mom suggested printing out several and making candy favors. I’ll let her explain how to do that. “Thanks Titan, your readers will really like this one. They will need a marker, paper, a color printer, scissors, a glue stick and some candy – I’m going to use M&M’s for mine and your dads and, baby Milk Bones* for yours. Print two (2) of the Boo hearts per person. Cut the hearts out. Glue the hearts, photo side out, together around the edges, leaving a half inch opening. Fill the heart with your candy of choice and glue the opening shut. There you have it, a quick and easy candy/Milk Bone favor. Give them out as Valentine’s Day cards or place them on the dinner plates Valentine’s night. Oh, and be sure to remember that chocolate is toxic and can be lethal if eaten by your dog.”
Another great idea I found was the doggie dog house (heaven knows I spend enough time in there.) You will find a full color printable at the following link, http://bit.ly/titansdoghouse.
This is a card I did for Honey, using the Wordall website. http://bit.ly/Honeywordall
Mom uses this great photo website that has FREE photos. I checked and there are 22 pages of Valentine photos and 50 pages of Love photos. Be sure to note that the top couple rows and the bottom row of photos are from iStock photo and there is a charge for those. The middle section is where you will find the FREE photos. You will find them here, http://bit.ly/titanssxcphotos.
Another site I found was the American Greeting Card company, http://bit.ly/americangreeting. I found the perfect card for Honey.

WHEN it comes to valentine dog toys and clothing there are a pawzillion choices to be made. Of course being a big boy and all, I do have a definite thoughts on what I will tolerate and what I do not want to wear for Valentines. I have put Mom on notice this year – much to her dismay.
I do not want to look like a huge cupcake sprinkled with girly hearts all over the place. Phew, just getting those brown and pink colors and those sprinkle, glitzy hearts out of the way is a huge relief. Oh, and remind me to put up a major stand when it comes to that red glitzy hoodie that looks like something Elvis may have worn when leaving the building a time or two.
Thank goodness I have Dad around to put his foot down when it comes to the likes of the Sugar Plum bed above, otherwise, that would have shown up in this house on oh, about day two. Now, I will have to say I think my girlfriend Honey would look just perfect in there.
While on the subject on Honey, I also picked out some additional goodies that would be perfect for her, like the pink pearl necklace, the hair bows and of course, the pink or purple rose dresses. Wow, what a time we could have dancing fur to fur with her wearing one of those. Continue reading

Mom is feeling much better now, but she has been really quiet – until today. She has this iPad thingie (I have an iPaw – really I do) that she spends hours on after we snuggle into bed under the electric blanketie for the night. Last night she was cruising something called YouTube for what she calls the oldies but goodies clips of General Hospital (Luke and Laura) and Days Of Our Lives (Doug and Julie.) She found one of the Day’s clips featuring the song The Look Of Love.
Deliver me from this song – she has been humming it all day long! She is even walking with an extra spring in her step today and smiled a few times. Gee, I wonder who she is thinking about when she smiles. Me (of course, who else could there be?)
So all of that got me to thinking about Honey, my girlfriend in Texas and Valentine’s Day. It’s coming up pretty soon you know. Continue reading

It’s Christmas shopping for pets time. I went on line to my favorite website, http://www.baxterboo.com to do some Christmas shopping for my cousin’s, Polar and Miche (the cat) last night.
I found some really cool stuff and was pawing right along until I got to the checkout part. Geez, being a dog (not something I admit to very often) and all, do you have any idea just how hard it is to get a credit card out of a planner, read the numbers and paw-type them into that silly little box? Just when I thought things were complete another box popped up asking for some three digit number on the back of the credit card. So much for mom not knowing I used her credit card, I’m thinking the bite marks will be a sure giveaway.
I’m sure glad I convinced mom to do dad’s and Aunt Judy’s Christmas shopping for me. I’m not sure my paws and mouth could have taken any more shopping. I don’t understand why that is. Mom makes it look so easy. She can hold me and still whip that card out and through that machine at the checkouts in two seconds. Must be one of the mysteries of being a fur-person verses a real person.
Oh no!!!!! I just remembered, I signed in on mom’s account which means the email order confirmation and shipping notification will show up in her morning email. I gotta go now and get some sleep. I will need to be bright eyed and pawerrific in the morning to explain this one.
