My crazy brother Mister!!

Mom came home from work wondering how my crazy brother Mister was going to be after being left with us for 6 hours! Guess what ... he was perfect and did not chew or tear anything up in the house!! He's growing up ... yes, my brother Mister is growing up ... i'm so proud of him and so is mom. So then mom let us out into the backyard .... here's Mister looking at mom and acting cool, calm and collected ... for just a moment :)

then here's Mister seconds after the picture above is taken:

he's possessed!!!

and he can't help himself!!

and his craziness is rubbing off on my sister Missy!!

But you know what??? I love 'em both sooooo sooooo much!!!

Home ... together ... finally ...

We are finally settled in our new home ... together again with my siblings and mom. Mom took this photo of us the other night. She gave up the couch so that the 3 of us could snuggle up together again like we used to. Later that night though she squeezed in between Mister and Missy :)

Our big day has arrived!!!

Missy in auntie Carol's car!
Ready for her sleepover!
Yesterday was our big day!! Mom closed on our house. Mom's been literally living out of a gym bag for the past 2 months  ... and i've been tagging along with her giving her LOTS of love. We just love auntie Laura for letting us crash at her house with La Buddy!! These past few days when mom had to travel for work I stayed at my old house with my sister Missy, while Mister went to stay with auntie Laura at Rescue Buddy Boarding. He just loves it there!! anyway, mom came and picked us up at the old house early yesterday morning so we could go with her to the "final walkthrough" of our new home and to also meet our auntie Carol there ... you see that sweet photo of Missy on the left ... it's a big day for her too. She packed her bag so she could spend a couple nights with auntie Carol through this crazy moving and packing. That's Missy in auntie Carol's car ... apparently she's having such a good time auntie Carol says she may not want to come back!! ummm ... don't think that's happening!! :) Thanks auntie Carol for taking my sweet sister for a couple days and pampering her.

Then I went with mom and our friend/realtor Regina to the house closing. Mom had to sign a bunch of papers. I asked her if she needed my paw print on anything but she told me she had it covered :) Then it was back to the old house to load up some stuff then back to our new home ... I was so excited when mom showed me the house key for our new digs!!

The new furniture (leather couch and recliner and mom's new bedroom set) got delivered yesterday. Our new home is so much bigger than where we used to live that mom had a hard time finding me. She checked all the rooms upstairs then finally realized that my favorite place is the den area where the new furniture is! Oh and you should see the back yard!! It's HUGE!! Can't wait till Missy and Mister get to see it too!!

Well, i'm exhausted from yesterday so today mom said that I get to hang out and relax with auntie Laura and Mister and La Buddy while she meets with the movers at the old house early this morning. Oh ... and guess what today is ... it's a special day because it's Buddy's birthday! He's 6 years old today and after mom is done getting all of our stuff moved into our new house she's coming back to auntie Laura's and we are going to celebrate La Buddy's birthday!!
Buddy dreaming about his birthday present!

So yesterday was a big day for our family! We have a fresh start to the new year, and I think it's pretty cool that my mom bought us a house so we could all be together again!! I'm not sure if we'll all sleep at our new digs tonight but by tomorrow night we will all be together again!

Oh .. and mom found out from the previous owners that there's a lot of wildlife around her house ... a hawk visits, an owl, coyote (thank goodness we're not small dogs!), fox, raccoon, deer and of course squirrels, bunnies and chipmunks. She told them that I once ate a baby bunny live once ... well, if the bunny is silly enough to have their nest in MY backyard and mom isn't quick enough to catch me ... well, i'm a hunter and scavenger and a former rez dog so what are you gonna do??? :)

Okay ... time to go back to sleep. love you guys!!

My new hobby .... ahh.... and getting into trouble!!

For the past 6 weeks mom and I have been living with auntie Laura and La Buddy ... and we've been so lucky because auntie Laura's mom has also been visiting from Nebraska and she is one cool person!! We also had my pal Tug (Mr. barky beagle with such a sweet personality) with us but yesterday he went off of his hopefully new forever home ... paws crossed for Tugster!

Mom tells people how "perfect" I am and how I don't get into trouble. Well, I thought it was high time for her to learn that it's good to get into trouble some times. I've also been trying to teach her that it's important to play and have fun ... you should've seen me tearing around with Tug and also playing tug with the boy ... he is one strong boy even though he's small!! On her last business trip I decided to steal the knitting yarn and take it to my bed ... No, I didn't chew it, I just snuggled with it. I also stole some chapstick AND in the picture above I decided that I was going to help auntie Janice with knitting doggie sweaters. Ummm.... she looks like a little surprised with "perfect" nung-nung trying to steal her yarn .. oh, and the other day, auntie Janice left her hot chocolate out and I got to stick my head in it and finish it up for her!!! :)

Tug with his blankie
Oh ... this is going to be a great year! Mom got some great news about her health and her pancreas and I'm going to teach mom (with the help of my siblings Mister and Missy) all about playing, having fun, speaking out for what you want, and even breaking the rules!!! We close on our new home this coming Friday and we'll get to be a family again and have a big back yard to play in.

Here's to what is going to be the best year ever!!!

And hugs and high fives to auntie Laura and auntie Janice and La Buddy for letting us hang out with them for so long ... and paws crossed again for my buddy Tug who if he does get adopted by this wonderful couple he won't be too far from our new home. Maybe we can get together for play dates?? :)

and to my four legged furry friends .... if your mom or dad ever need to go away for vacation (or whatever crazy reasons they come up with to leave us!) you should tell them to check out Rescue Buddy Boarding. .... this is where Mister stays when mom goes out of town for business because he gets barky and anxious when he's left (my mom calls is 'separation anxiety').  If you stay here I can guarantee you will have your own doggie bed, you will gets LOTS of love and attention and you can even sleep on the couch if you want ...  Nung-nung gives Rescue Buddy Boarding a 6 star rating!!!! :)

Personalized mosaic dog (or kitty) leash hooks

Yes, I know the holidays are over and soon everyone is going back to work! For the record, my work never ends. I am always working hard!! :) Sometimes working for me means sleeping and snoring which is just as important!! :)

Well ... I've shared this once before but I have to share it again in case you are wondering what to give your special pooch or kitty for the New Year. Mom got us our own personalized mosaic dog leash hooks last year. We even got to pick our own colors! Of course, mine is orange ... my sister Missy is purple and crazy boy Mister is red!!! When we move to our new house in a couple of weeks I may need to convince mom to place another order for me ... hmmm, not sure what mine will say this time ... "Queenie" .... "nung-nung" ... "North Star" ... "Star of the night skies" ... oh, the possibilities are limitless!!! :)

On behalf of my furry friends, I'm sending out this information so you can place an order for them too!! :) You can reach my auntie Cindy of Velvet Bear Mosaics who makes this awesome mosaic leash holders at

and last night, mom bought me a Christmas fleece blanket and covered me up!!! She knows I need my beauty sleep so that I can keep doing my work as a therapy dog!!! :)
