Monday Mischief: Enough Said.

A picture says it all for today's Monday Mischief post.  Zeus and I couldn't agree more about Mondays...

Black & White Sunday: Sweet Sophie

Sophie wants to wish you all a happy last Sunday of September/first official Sunday of autumn.  She even put on her "sweet" face... or is that her "where's my cookie?" face?

Remember Me Thursday #LightForPets

Today is Remember Me ThursdayWill you take a few moments out of your day to join me in lighting a virtual candle to remember the millions or orphan pets who lost their lives over the past year?  This pet awareness campaign, designed to promote pet adoption, is a cause near and dear to our hearts. 

Remember Me Thursday is a worldwide coalition of pet adoption organizations, celebrities and people like you, who raise awareness about the plight of millions of orphan pets around the world waiting for forever homes.
By lighting a candle on Remember Me Thursday, September 25, 2014, you are remembering those pets who have lost their lives but you are also shining a light on orphan pets in need of homes right now.
The first Remember Me Thursday took place last year, on September 26, 2013.  We participated, as did so many others.  In fact, 139 countries united to support the movement, with over 100,000 individuals around the globe holding candle-lighting ceremonies of their own, spreading the message through social media, visiting the Remember Me Thursday website and lighting a virtual candle.


I hope you will light a virtual candle and help spread the word today!

Tasty Tuesday: CJB Blueberry Vanilla

Happy Tasty Tuesday!  The Lapdogs wanted to tell you all about a brand new flavor of treats from one of their most favorite companies ever, Casey Jones Bones!

Long time readers know we absolutely adore Casey Jones, his humans and their wonderful dog treats.  Made just a hop-skip-and-a-jump away from us in Hudson, NH, these treats are not only made locally, but they use many locally sourced ingredients as well!  Heck, the apples they use are from an orchard we tend to visit a lot this time of year (mmm... can you smell the warm cider donuts?).  And while they may not be local to many of you, I can attest that your pack will enjoy them just as much as mine.

The Lapdogs were all ears when they heard the new flavor of Casey Jones Bones, Wheat Free Blueberry Vanilla, was available!  They had the pleasure of taste-testing a few of the original blueberry batches last year as the CJB humans worked on perfecting the recipe.  While they enjoyed all of the variations along the way, I think it's safe to say the final result is a real winner!

2014-09-21_06-30-34

All four of my babies were lined up and waiting for me to rip open that blue bag (sorry for the less than stellar photos, but this was spur-of-the-moment)!  They gobbled them up and begged for more... and yes, Mama gave in and gave them extras.  Oh, and did I mention how great these smell? 

For those of you who aren't fortunate enough to be able to pick up Casey Jones Bones locally (distribution is currently being expanded all over New England, as well as into New York), you can order direct online or even message me to work something out (I love sending out New England care packages).  CJB is one of our partner sponsors on the race car, which means we always have free samples to give away at the races, as well as full size boxes available for sale.  With race season winding down, I still have some stock of several flavors at home (not that that's a problem with the Lapdogs, of course - they haven't tasted a CJB flavor they haven't liked yet!).
