Pup Quiz: Name the Dog Breed

Gary and I recently went to a dog show that was held in Little Rock, Arkansas. Since we weren't participating this time we were able to visit with lots of interesting dogs. Here is just a sampling of the many different dog breeds we saw. See if you can name them all. The answers to the quiz are at the bottom of the post.

#1 Me with Maggie, one of Louie's girlfriends from dog school.

#2 Cuddling Cuties

#3 A Tall and Elegant Girl

#4 Patiently waiting for Mom to finish his beauty routine

#5 My very first time to meet this breed in real life. I think her name is Star. She is a super sweet girl who would make a wonderful therapy dog.

#6 This little girl's name is Lily

#7 Another breed besides Newfoundlands that knows "Drool Rules!"

#8 Petite Princess

#9 An imposing fellow

#10 Sleeping Beauty

#11 One of the toy breeds on the judges table

Cousins Are Cool

by Katie the Newf

Last night two cousins came to visit us. I'm not sure exactly what a "cousin" is, but one of them was small and one was tall like Mama. The small cousin remembered the time I gave her a ride in my little red wagon. She begged me to take her again, but understood when Mama said that it was just too hot for me to be outside this time of year. So instead, the small cousin tried to find a toy for us Newfs to play with.

She offered me this big stick, but...

I thought it was more fun to watch the small cousin play with Mama's toys. I wonder why Mama never lets me play with those fun toys.

My brother Louie was B A D. Mama said he needs some lessons on how to behave in our house with kids. Even though he is Mr. Perfect when he goes out on his therapy visits sometimes he gets a little too rowdy when he is at home. He kept wanting to chase the small cousin around. It was like he thought she was his own special playmate. After a few corrections from Mama and Daddy he finally settled down.

I think these cousins are super fun to have around. I hope they come visit again soon.

Allie: Therapy Dog in Training

We made a new friend recently. Cute little Allie is a therapy dog in training who wanted to practice with some active therapy dogs. Mama volunteered us which we thought was super cool since we always love to have visitors. Allie was a bit afraid of us at first, but she quickly figured out that we are just big marshmellows.

See we are so sweet that we even wait our turn for treats. This shows A LOT of restraint from us 'cause we LOVE food so much!

Best of luck to Allie in her Therapy Dog training and testing.

Love & Licks,
Katie & Louie
