Welcome Miss Maize

Hi. I am Miss Maizie and here is my story:

My mom had been looking at Beagle puppies for sometime on Petfinder and finally on 4/25/17 she submitted an adoption application on one that she found at a rescue in southern Missouri.  
Long story short - there was an approved adoption application for that puppy just that day.  

While she was waiting for this adoption to be finalized, Miss Flea of Jones Natural Dog Treats fame, had contacted her on Facebook - the question was...did she know any Beagle owners in Oklahoma because she knew of a Beagle who needed a new home but at some point it turned into my mom asking more questions about the the puppy. 
Miss Flea shared pictures of the puppy, then named Lucy.  The puppy was up to date on shots, was spayed, came with food, food bowls, toys, a brush, her crate, flea & tick treatment and a car harness.  
 The next thing she knew, they were making plans to meet in Buffalo, Kansas where Mom and Lady Shasta plus Moms sister and her Lady Bailie.  She brought the puppy, which was of course...ME!!
She renamed me....Miss Maizie and I came home to live with Mom and Lady Shasta.  
 Mom didn't see it at first since I look nothing like Angel Shiloh but the more I interacted, the more of Angel Shiloh comes out.  So Mom does think that  Angel Shiloh had a paw in Me coming to live at the Beaglebratz Manor - most definitely.

I love it here already and cant wait to me more friends!!

Welcome Lucy

I'm Lucy and here's my story.
When my previous owner was no longer able to care for me she posted an ad looking for me a new home.  Momma says when she saw my tiny red curls in the photo posted online she fell in love!  Unfortunately due to mommas work schedule we could not meet right away.  This is the picture momma kept on her desk while waiting till her day off to come meet me.  She says I look like a lil teddy bear.
On March 1, 2017 the day finally came and I got to meet my momma and Doggy Nanny.  We all had an instant connection when we met. I got lots of hugs from them both.  Momma told my previous owner that she wanted to take me home, gathered up all of my belongings and we set out on a long bye bye ride.  I slept most of the way, the scenery was not too interesting to me. Just fields, houses and old farm equipment.
When I woke up there were some big surprises in store for me!  I big yard to call my own, my very own kitty cat named Jackson (hes got a super fluffy tail that's fun to pull on) and a new doggie fur-iend.  Her name is Aunt Gracie and she loves to play my favorite and bitey face!  
I would love to share my adventures with everyone
If you would like to come for a visit my blog: Life with Lucy. 
We are excited that you are here with us.

Welcome Mia

Hi. My name is Mia and I live in Vancouver, BC.
I'm a staffordshire bull terrier/pit mix, or at least that's what they think I am.
My Mom got me from a friend who actually got me from somewhere in Hope, BC. 
The friend realized she wasn't ready for a puppy and she was going to sell me on Craigslist! 
My mom was looking for a second dog but not a puppy because her current dog is 13 but she couldn't bear the idea of me getting into the wrong hands. So.....I came to live with my new family.

Keiko and I co-exist quite well, and I am learning how to live with a senior dog though I still have puppy moments when I try to play with him.

I love to run in the trails and swim at the dog beach (well, retrieve sticks and balls in the water). I'm just a little ball and stick obsessed ha! ha!

I'm looking forward to meeting lots of new friends here and being involved in Blogville. Everyone that I have met so far have been really nice. You can visit me at my blog:  It's a Pibbles Life.
Lets give Mia a BIG Blogville Welcome!!

                      WELCOME MIA!!!!

Welcome Molly

The Story of Molly, Belle's Highland Girl
Well I guess I should start at what my pawrents think is the beginning of their quest to find me. (We pups know the true story though don't we? BOL ) 
My sister, Penny was very sick and in the Veterinary hospital for a couple of days before she went OTRB. It was close to the time for me to be born; my sister would visit me in my dreams and tell me about my Mom and Dad, and that she thought I'd be the perfect pup for them. (Yups, I met my sister Penny, before I was even born) She said they were going to need a pup with a lot of spunk and determination to help heal their broken hearts.
After Penny went OTRB, my folks decided they didn't want another dog. It was simply too difficult loving a pup for so long and after 14 years they're gone..(Don't panic, I'm not finished with my story).
After a couple of days they began to notice how quiet the house was. (We Dachshunds love to talk about anything and everything and we're always on guard duty). They realized they had to have another little weenie girl. Their house simply wasn't a home without toenails clicking on the floors and a dog barking at everything that moved. Mom and Dad remembered Penny's regular dogtor mentioning the breeder where she'd gotten her Dachshund, and thus the quest to find me began for my pawrents.

It took Mom and Dad about a week to find my breeder, low and behold I had just been born the night before. (Remember I told you my now Angel Sister Penny and I had already had a chat, we decided who my hoomans were going to be. (It's funny how we pups do these things isn't it?) The lady told my Mom and Dad she thought she had the perfect puppy for them. She said she could already tell I was going to a beautiful girl, and that even at less than 1 day old she knew I had a personality.
The nice lady sent my folks pictures of me and emails about how I was doing for the first month of my life. My pawrents made a couple of trips to Pilot Mtn. to visit me and that's when we all truly fell in love with each other. From that day forward, I've had my pawrents wrapped around my little paw, and that's where they've stayed to this very day.
I came to my forever home on October 31, 2011 my favorite holiday of the year. It's my Mom and Dad's favorite holiday as well. We celebrate my Gotcha Day ever year with a trip to Pilot Mtn. where I was born, then we go to the Pet store and I get a new toy. That night we all watch old horror movies and the folks eat snacks. I'm always snuggled close by.
I've never forgotten my Angel sister Penny and I's dream conversations, and I've taken my responsibility of taking care of my Mom and Dad very seriously. Penny and I decided I couldn't be the sweet, docile prissy girl she had been. That would hurt my folks hearts too much. Everything I would do would remind them of their girl OTRB. We came up with a plan that I should be her polar opposite. Yups I'm a wild Tomboy. Even though I look prissy as can be, I'm, wide open. I love to hunt and track, the colder and more nasty the weather, the better I like it. BOL You got mud?, I'm all in it.

Mom never thought she'd love another dog like she did my Angel sister Penny, and Penny knew that. That's why she chose me for my Mom and Dad and the reason she visited me in my dreams and told me I was the perfect girl for her family.
Mom loves my adventurous spirit, and began writing stories of some of my escapades,(some real, some imagined), plus it didn't hurt that I was so photogenic. When Penny passed away the pawrents realized they didn't have that many pictures of her. That all changed with me. I'm probably one the most photographed dogs you'll ever meet. Add to that Mom's fascination with Photoshop and Photo manipulation and there's the reason for my being a dog with a blog, and the birth of The Fast and The Furriest.
Love, Molly and my Mom
WELCOME Molly. We are all happy to learn your story and share in your adventures. Head on over to Mollys blog The Fast and the Furriest and say Hello!!

Welcome Louis Dog Armstrong

Louis Dog Armstrong’s Story Woof to the whole Blogville pack:
dogs, peeps, kitties and every other being!
I am a Maltipoo. Although I am only ten pounds, I have a huge heart. I am also very brave. For example, I think nothing of trying to chase away dogs like German Shepherds and Rottweilers if they come too close to my house. My mother was a big black Poodle and my father was a small white Maltese Terrier. I had two brothers who were black and white, but I am pure white. I am a lucky dog because I was adopted by my forever family pack when I was just a puppy. They loved me from the first moment they saw me because I couldn’t stop following them around while my brothers just watched. You see, I loved them too! My forever family was Mimi, Eric and Autumn. Eric and Autumn were 11 and 12 years old and Mimi was their grandmother. The three of them lived in a house with no dogs, so you can imagine how happy they were to find woofy little me. While I ruffed Eric and Mimi very much, I think that I was closest to Autumn. She had a natural way with animals and we understood each other very well. Autumn taught me not to pick up old chewing gum on the street and eat it. She was patient and kind. The sad thing is that when I was nearly three years old, Autumn became terribly sick with the rarest form of leukemia in the world. She spent the next four years in and out of the children’s hospital, so I didn’t always get to see her. The first time she went to the hospital she was gone for eight months and she was afraid that I wouldn’t remember her. But when she returned I was so excited to see her that she knew for a fact that I would never forget her, not ever. Whenever Autumn was in the hospital I would snuggle with Eric and make him feel peaceful and calm. Whenever Autumn was at home I would stick with her and make her feel better. Everyone said I was the best medicine. That is when I knew in my heart that I am a medicine dog. Autumn left this world when she was seventeen, but a few days before she crossed the bridge they let me visit her in the hospital. I got to kiss her arm and she knew that I was there. I know that I brought peace and love to her beautiful soul. Someday Autumn and I will be together again. Our journey with Autumn changed our whole pack. After she left I began to wonder what the purpose of my life might be. Besides being a medicine dog, that is. It couldn’t be just treats and squeaky toys, although those will always be dear to my heart. Finally I figured out that I need to help the humans to understand members of the animal kingdom. I want to make the world a safer place for the furry, feathered, slithery and waterbound beings of this world. Even if I only make a pawprint of a difference it will be worth it. 
I started with my blog called Louis the Blogging Dog, but now I have a Facebook page and a Pinterest site with all kinds of woofy information. I’ve gained weight from being too much on the computer but I ruff it! Thanks for reading this and if you ever want to contact me, just email me at I ruff Blogville already! Rruff and Licky Kisses, Louis Dog Armstrong
Everyone go on over to Louis Dog Armstrong's blog, meet him and welcome him to Blogville!!
WELCOME Louis Dog!!

Welcome Delilah

Delilah is a 6 lbs Toy Fox Terrier who's ready to take on the world!
Our blog is called "Tiny Paws, Big Adventures," where we focus on two different topics. One is Delilah's anxiety and behavior modification progress. She is a rescue dog that I had transported up from Tennessee, and I think somewhere between poor genetics, lack of socialization as a puppy, and some scary experiences as a stray and in a high kill shelter, she has developed a lot of anxiety and fear. Sometimes it can be a challenge, but we'll never give up!
Our other focus is dispelling the myth that "little dogs aren't real dogs" and showing the world that the little guys can have fun too! Delilah and I go on a lot of hiking adventures around the beautiful state of Vermont and dabble in dog sports- agility, barn hunt, trick training. She can do anything a big dog can do! You can follow our adventures at Tiny Paws, Big Adventures
We are excited that you are joining us in Blogville and you will meet lots of new friends.
WELCOME Delilah!!

Welcome Astro

We want to Welcome Astro to Blogville.
Astro lives where Cinnamon used to live before Cinnamon crossed the bridge.
His new family had a bad experience with a mean man so they went to a shelter to look around.
There were lots of dogs and cats up for adoption. They walked around and found a cute black pitty. They both fell in love with him right away! How could they not right?
After a 20 min get to know meet and greet, a interview and paperwork, Astro got to go home with Jeff and Linda. It was so simple and they were all just so Happy. At the shelter his name used to be Hippo but they changed it to Astro. I don't know about you but I like Astro much better.
Astro and his dad Jeff.  His Mom is in the process of setting up a blog for Astro but it isn't up and running just yet. She may need a bit of help if anyone would like to help her.
So for Now go on over to The Dog with a Blog and Welcome Astro to Blogville.
