Friday Follow Up Fun!


Hi Y’all!



It’s time to round up the week and face a new weekend and the week ahead. 

This isn’t a question…on last weeks Follow Up Maya and Pierson’s person loved Sampson and Delilah’s mama’s comment.  For those who missed it, first the picture, then the comment…


Now, for Wordless Wednesday’s “Anticipation”…It wasn’t a question…but Jodi at Heart Like a Dog said “Throw the ball. Throw the ball! THROW THE BALL!! THROW. THE. BALL. NOW!!!”

About “Here I Come”, Chloe and Lady Bug asked “Looks like you’re running full tilt…Going someplace special?”


About “Monday Madness” Goose commented:


“What beautiful sky shots!!!



I think I was about 7 before I knew what a dog door was. The very first time I used one I was at my gal pal Belle's house. I saw her go out it (it was one that was in a screen door). So I went running through it after her and dang if I did not send the whole screen door flying across the patio!!! Butt now I am a pro. Dog doors are the BEST!! Blessings, Goose

I’m 7 too!  and it was my first dog door! 

About “I Have a Tail…”  Oz the Terrier, JoAnn at Sand Springs Chesapeakes and Dogs n Pawz asked how anyone could give up a sweet dog like LouLou?

I really don’t have an answer for that question.  I don’t really understand humans that well.

About “Come Play with Me”  Oz wants to know if he can come play with my Wubba.




I love having playmates!  I’ll share!  You’re always welcome to come play.



Y’all come back now!

It’s Been a Week of This n That n Something Else…


Hi Y’all!



I really appreciate all my faithful followers. 

I haven’t been visitin’ like I should…it’s been a busy, busy time for all of us.  I’m lonely when I don’t get to visit and bark at y’all. 


Anyway, the Humans have had lots of appointments and have been traveling almost everyday.  More on that later. 


I had a vet appointment on Wednesday.  I’ll tell you more about that later too. 


Y’all come back now!

I Have a Tail…Not Sure About the Tale




My name is LouLou!  I’m not sure what’s happening.  My owner brought me here…they call it an “owner surrender”. 

I’m still young and could learn lots of things if you are willing to take me to school. 

The people here say I’m really sweet.

I’ve been fully vetted, so you know I’m healthy!

Everyone is wonderful here, but I just want someone of my own to love again.

Monday Madness!


Hi Y’all!




There are strange things happening in “these here hills”…


My Humans took me for a play date…I heard lots of dogs but only met a couple.  My Humans left for an hour.  I was upset and tried to get out the gate where we had come into the yard. 


Then a couple of days later my Humans took me back…I had a great time with the big Doberman…but then when I was ready to go home, they left.  Guess it was a furry equivalent of a pajama party. 


I was more than a wee might puzzled, because I’ve never ever been away from them overnight…but I was so tired…I found a crate fixed up with my bed from home.  So I went in and went to sleep.


Oh, I didn’t tell y’all the best part!  Not only were there lots of other dogs of all different sizes, but there was a DOG DOOR!  WOW!!!

We don’t have a dog door so before my Humans left they taught me to use it! 


Let me tell you! I wore that door out!!!

When I heard my Humans’ car returning in the morning I was on that porch to meet them!!!





Y’all come back now!

Sunny Stormy Saturday


Hi Y’all!




The weather has broken and it isn’t so hot anymore…but the humidity keeps hitting 100 percent.  Y’all know what that means!  Rain! and LOTS of it! 




It just started to rain and thunder but when a guy needs to “go out”…it doesn’t take long and I’m headed inside!

The aftermath of these storms sometimes brings…


Y’all come back now!

Follow Up, Keeping Fit and Your Questions



Hi Y’all!



Seems like I befuddled a bunch of y’all…That’s how I feel every time I get into the car and take off with the Humans!

On “The Weather Is Broken” Sam asks, “where are you heading?” 

Molly asks “where are you Hawk?”

About “Travel is Fun” the gang at Wags and Woofs said they couldn’t tell what the bushes or trees were…





The photo above is a peach orchard where we sometimes stop this time of year. 

About my post “Do You Know Yet”?

Dina, DogMom, Sam and Slim Doggy all said they didn’t know…


About “The Weather is Broken” the browndawgs said “are you back in the mountains?”.  







Now, for Wordless Wednesday’s “Anticipation”…It wasn’t a question…but Jodi at Heart Like a Dog said “Throw the ball. Throw the ball! THROW THE BALL!! THROW. THE. BALL. NOW!!!”



Kari in Alaska asks “ is someone about to throw something?”

Not exactly…since my Human doesn’t usually have the luxury of having someone to help, I have to do a sit stay while my Human sets up bumpers.  Some she hides and some she tosses so I can see them fall and mark them in my mind. 




Once she puts all the bumpers out she returns to my side and sends me to retrieve each bumper.  She does not always want me to bring them back in the same order I saw them fall.  It’s a mentally challenging exercise.  It’s also a great way for me to exercise and still have a chance to cool off.

Remember, your dog needs to use his brain as well as his muscles to be truly fit!  Find something your friend likes and challenge him/her to more.

Now I have to be off to have some fun!



Y’all come back now!

Another Tuesday, Another Tail…Tale




Pleased to meet you! 

I’m Atlas!

I’m living with a foster mom in Bardstown, Kentucky.  I’ve been doing so well with my lessons that she thinks I should be able to go to a REAL home, a forever home.

I am very, very well mannered. 

I am young, only 2  years old.  So occasionally I get really excited and forget about my size and launch all of my 60 lbs.  I know I’m acting crazy jumping up like that, but I’m really, really working on it! 

I’ve “worked hard perfecting my potty training skills and think I have perfected them”.

I love to take a ride in the car, but when I have to stay home I prefer my crate.  I’m more comfy there, plus it keeps me out of trouble. 

I love to play with my “furry dog friends and the cat isn’t so bad either”.  When I’m not playing I love having a nice bone. 

My wish for a home is that the people love me and care about me.  I’d like a home where it’s understood that I am a very active young adult dog and are willing to spend the time with me.


I’m hoping that my new family would take me to school so we could learn how to work together…who knows, maybe even agility or rally obedience, or both!   I really want to learn to be a good family member and be a part of a loving family.
