like the coolest thingie evarrr!

hihi everybuddy!  my mama got a bloggie post in her email feed thingie the other day, and it is really super neato!
For their Driving Dogs campaign, SPCA Auckland, along with MINI New Zealand, had animal trainer Mark Vette and his team teach rescue dogs MontyPorter, and Ginny how to drive. The campaign’s aim was to change some common misconceptions about the intelligence of rescue dogs. In this series of videos, you can see how the dogs learned to drive and, in this video, you can watch Porter drive a MINI Countryman around a track. The specially modified was customized for the dog’s use by Ikon Engineering.  (via Laughing Squid)
porter, monty, and miss ginny are the three lucky ducky doggies who got to go drivin'!  aren't they all kinds of crazy cuteness?  i hope they find their forevarrr homes in like 2 seconds.  they can even drive themselves there! teeheehee.
All three dogs

autumn's arrival

greetings, dear friends!  it is i, asa.  with sheer delight, i wish to inform you that autumn most graciously agreed to make its presence known here in south carolina!  there are few things i anticipate with as much joy as autumn's arrival.  it is my most cherished season of the year.  the slight chill in the air, the mosaic of leaf colors on trees, attiring one's self in cozy sweaters and sweatshirts -- these are but a few of the myriad of pleasures autumn has to offer.  
you can imagine my glee when i perceived the sufficiently chilled air temperature and came to the realization that i could at last wear my prized magenta hoodie sweatshirt!  among its numerous useful features, my hoodie sweatshirt affords me the opportunity to enjoy a quick power nap whilst sitting up, without the risk of catching a chill.

a lovely power nap whilst sitting 

alas, my mother finds this amusing and brought it upon herself to procure pictures of said event.  may i express to you the annoyance of being disturbed in the middle of a power nap?

why, no, mother, i am NOT amused by your disturbance.

if by some fortuitous event i ever acquire opposable thumbs, you can rest assured that i shall return the favor!

full of the embarrassments!!!!!

hihi everybuddy!!  it's me, the booker man!  i hope you haven't forgotten who in the bananas i am since it's been like 50 gazillion years since you've heard from me.  i wish i had a crazy go nuts awesome sauce excuse like...alien kitties abducted me and took me to mars to drive that rover thingie...or maybe that me 'n asa had been picked to be on a new reality teevee show about snausage makin' (and eatin'!)...but all i can woof is that it's my mama's fault.  seriously.
way back last july, she kinda decided that she needed a break from helpin' me with my bloggie.  she and daddy were gonna tile the laundry room floor and kitchen floor.  well, we all know how long it takes the hoomans to do their home improvement thingies!  next, mama 'n daddy had to do some mega travelin'...washington, d.c. and chicago and germany and california...whew!  finally, mama decided that she was gonna go back to school, and she got all busy researchin' schools and fillin' out applications and stuff.  she started takin' classes a couple months ago in june.
i finally reached the tippy top of my ability to be patient like a few days ago, and i did what any doggie would do in a code red situation like this.  i cornered my mama in the bathroom while she was dryin' her furs one morning, and i gave her the biggest, most totally boohoo googley eyes evarrr followed by some super duper gooey nose kisses.  then i begged her to help me with my bloggie.  of course she immediately melted into a puddle of cheeses.  teehee, just kiddin', but she agreed to get on the interwebz with me and help me paw a bloggie post!  well, i logged on to my bloggie and also checked my bark mail, and i had messages from ya'll askin' if i was okie dokie.  that made me sad and all full of the embarrassments.  i am so way sorry like that we were MIA for so long and didn't woof anythingie!!  we are all doin' grrreat.  mama is way busy, though, so i gotta make sure to woof that we aren't gonna be regulars in bloggie world anymore, but we will be around from time to time.
so to recap our absence:






and most important like: us beggin' for the forgivenesses!
