A little history...

TuffyBoy was born on April Fool's Day in 2003... He was 3 months old and just 1 1/2 lbs when we brought him home... [Shorter than a Moosehead bottle!!!!]

He isn't fearless like his sister - but you wouldn't know that if you saw the way he barks at men, women, children, dogs, cats, daddy practicing his golf swing, you get the idea...


Lily Luv was born on Christmas Eve in 2006. Her doggie mama, Arwen, and doggie daddy, Sparky, are sweet, and loveable - but NO ONE can compare to Lily's very first mama and daddy, Lynda and Denny [the breeders]! They are the kindest most wonderful people! We brought Lily home in February 2007 when she was about 12 weeks old and only 1 lb 1 oz! Such a peanut!!! Her personality has always been much bigger than the pup - even from day one!!!

Running errands...

So much to do today - hardly feels like a day off... I have a laundry list of toys that I have been neglecting and about a dozen squeakers to extract... There are a pair of chewies that need some attention too... It is so tough to chew one when you are hoarding Lily's at the same time... I need to work on my technique. So happy it is a long weekend.

Spent some time looking at some old pics and videos for this new blog...I am convinced mom is hoping we become some kind of internet sensation so she can quit her job - a dog's work is never done. Anyway - here is a classic example of the shenanigans that I have to put up with now that I have a little sister...

B. L. [Before Lily]


Those were the days... Just me, my mama, my daddy and all the toys a boy could dream of... Every kib and treat was just for me and I was the first thing mom thought about in the morning, and the last at night... Sigh... Then came Lily... At first things weren't so bad... she couldn't get up on the sofa - so I still had a lot of alone time with Mama...


I should have known when she was housebroken in a week she would be the annoying, over-achiever type... The way she struts around in sweaters with ribbons in her hair... [Clothes are my cryptonite... If I am sporting a sweatshirt, then chances are something just went down and mom is teaching me a lesson... ] Anyway - I have a pretty good story about a run in with a German Shepherd that really gets people going - so I bring that up whenever she starts stealing the show...

Lily Luv has a secret boyfriend!!!



I was surfing the net while mom and dad were at work and found the boy of my dreams... He mountain bikes, he runs trails, he even has his own boat! Can you get any cooler?? His name is Oyster, and even though we haven't met yet - I call him my boyfriend. I think he is dreamy...

I was going to start my own Oyster fan club - but he seems so sophisticated and mature - starting my own blog seemed like the way to catch his eye... I know he is a working man so maybe he doesn't have time for a relationship??? My paws are crossed that he isn't off the market and likes his girls petite like me!!! Check out his blog and tell me what you think?
