Sunday Morning is for Sleeping

Dori had a big day yesterday with our Halloween party. This morning all she wants to do is find a place to nap!
Her friend Sug came to visit as well. She is also having a lazy Sunday - just look out for that vampire bat, Sug!

WHAT is that?

Interesting image on the camera. Wonder what it is? Rare naugahyde beast hiding in mulch? Close up of a Peruvian black tango snake's scales?
Nope! Just an extreme close up of a Dori toebean!

Everypup got a bath this week - Dori was a bit pitiful after hers! 
I'm just gonna sit here and eat this pea the cats dropped from their food. THEY don't get baths - maybe I will turn into one!
We only have to do that once a lifetime, right?

Shoe! Not Chew!

Dori loves my slippers. She actually doesn't chew on them! She prefers to tote one to her napping spot of the moment and just lay down on it like a pillow. Sometimes she will "mouth" it a bit before she sleeps - maybe the fur reminds her of someone?

Play with me, Erin!

Even the beagle isn't totally immune to playtime antics. She is quick to let Dori know when she has had enough though!

Going to the V-E-T

Time for the 3rd round of puppy shots, Dori! They want to do WHAT to me?

I'm not so sure about this at all!! Isn't there something else we can do?
Well, that wasn't so bad after all! Why didn't you tell me there were treats involved!!
Everything was fine at the visit - she gave LOTS of kisses to everyone! If you look close in the pics you can see her Halloween collar :)

Skritch, please!

Don't you just want to reach out and scratch that fuzzy tummy?! She was rolling around the yard in this one :)

Floofier still!

Need to find out when poms get their first puppy  haircut - you can't even tell she has a collar on now!

The Truth

Yup, Dori is actually the one writing all this stuff! :)

Weekends are Exhausting!

After a hard weekend of chasing Rico and protecting the house from Fluff Bunnies of Doom, Dori settled into her favorite napping spot under the kitchen table!

Comparisons With the Past

Dori isn't the first fluffly pup we have been blessed with. For over 14 years there was a lovely girl named Angel who ran the household pack. The comparisons between the two are inevitable - especially as Dori has a similar  personality!

As  you can see she is getting quite a bit floofier as she is getting older!

Fun Size

One of the fun things we get to do is buy Dori sized items. Even our chihuahua's treats are a little big for her! Here are her biscuits next to his!
And here is Dori telling me she can eat all of those biscuits so I don't have to put them away - really she can!!

Fall Fun

She loves the cool grass on her belly! (and it makes a great tug toy, too!)
Don't forget to vote if you can - once a day! Petsmart Halloween (search for her name if the link didn't take you to her!)

As some of you know, Dori was named after an Amazon princess in a wonderful series of stories by Melissa Good.  An important milestone in any Amazon's life is her first feathering and we are happy to report our Dori got hers this weekend! :)

Vote, please!!

Dori's pic is up on Petsmart's Halloween page! We would love if you could vote for her!

Vote, please!

Meet Alti

The other kitty that lives with us is Alti. Dori loves having her as a playmate as well!
Alti, however, isn't as happy to have Dori around! She glares at her a lot, hisses and then finds a nice safe high spot to watch the intruder from!

More toys for me!!

It's not just the spinning ball she has claimed from the kitties! ALL of their toys are the perfect size!

In other news, I have entered Dori in the Petsmart Halloween contest. Her pic should show up within 24 hours! We would love to have you vote for her! You can search by name - hopefully she shows up soon!

Not the Kitty's!

Dori is facinated by this type of cat toy. She is determined that somehow she will be able to get that ball! She will also stand on the middle and spin herself around to watch it. Meanwhile the kitties stand back and watch her and wait their turn!
