Happy New Year

Now I've heard there was a secret chord

That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah


Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Baby I have been here before
I know this room, I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you.
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

There was a time you let me know
What's really going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
And remember when I moved in you
The holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Maybe there’s a God above
But all I’ve ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
It’s not a cry you can hear at night
It’s not somebody who has seen the light
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

You say I took the name in vain
I don't even know the name
But if I did, well really, what's it to you?
There's a blaze of light
In every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
And even though
It all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Service Dogs

This story really touched my heart:

Dogs In Iraq & Afghanistan Receive Presents from Guide Dog Company
An organization devoted to caring for dogs is hoping these gifts will brighten the holidays for military K-9s serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation donated some $2,000 -thousand in supplies including cooling vests for hot climates and "doggles" -- canine goggles which protect their eyes from sun and sand.
"So this is our way in the season of thanks and giving and hope and renewal to give back to the troops that have given so much for us. If we can help protect them by helping their canines, we have done our job," said Adirenne Sullivan of Fidelco.
Fidelco trains and provides guide dogs for the visually impaired.

The foundation says it understands the stresses on and the importance of military canines serving overseas.

Our gotcha story... part the deux

After Spoiler died Mommy and Papi said NO MORE DOGS!!! Famouse last words right???  About 8 months after he passed Mommy and Papi were so full of woe.  Who wouldn't be with no Shar Pei in their life right???  One day Papi said to Moms ' how about looking for another dog?' Mommy perks up her ears (hers kinda like a Shar Pei in that regard with the ears and all) and says 'a dog huh? ' secretly wishing for a dog a dog A DOG!!!

You see the Mommy had been heartbroke about the Spoiler leavin and all and wanted a new doggie soooooo much but didn't want to hurt Papi's feelings with talks of replacing him. Come to find out the Papi wanted a new doggie too!!!

And so... the search for a new doggie was on....  Then Papi said 'how about we get two, a brother and sister?' Mommy looked and looked far and wide and found us in Florida.  We were shipped (that sounds so cold huh?)  in a great big crate.  We were thankfully in the same crate and all Mommy remembers is her two babies bunched up together at the back of the great big crate when she finally got to us. 

Mommy here:  they were 8 weeks old and sent via airplane.  They were huddled in the back of this crate when I finally got to them.  I went for them immediately and got me and my great big bottom stuck in the crate.  My husband was laughing so hard behind us he couldn't even speak. 

A year later Jerry was gone.  But those puppies saved my life.  And continue to do so each and every day.

Hug your Dogs people.........

Our gotcha story as told by Mommy

You know my husband died, Jerry Sweet Sucks!  But in the interim when he lived, and boy howdeee, we had another SharPei Spoiler. Jerry didn't want a dog. No Dog...No Dog...No Dog... but then I wheedled and I wheedled cause I wanted a dog.  So all of a sudden (music to affect my ministrations) we found ourselves way up north where there were SharPei puppies!!! Imagine my surprise!!!  This little feller Spoiler (as he was to be called) broke through Jerry Sweet's cold cold heart and he was ours!!!!

I have pictures but not enough knowledge to get them on here. baby steps...

We lived joyously with that dog for 8 years. But he died. (curiously now I think from SharPei Fever which Meja suffers from.

We mourned that dog, oh how we mourned. Never a dog again...NEVER!

Then about 8 months later, as it happened, we both started with the  'a dog would be good', 'maybe a baby dog would be good', 'maybe our hearts could open again'.....

THEN Jerry Sweet (God rest his soul) said to me 'maybe we should look for a dog.'

THEN after my looking, 'maybe two, a brother and sister!'

the story or how we came to be... continues...

Happy Happy Happy Thanksgiving

On this day we are thankful for each and everyone of you. All of you... We're not even kidding...

And to this end we give you:

We love yous guys...

Mommy, Bobo and Meja from Sweet Casa to yer casa

It really should be inprisoned don't you think???

Trying to squashy my brother with that thing...

Mommy's got THE picture on hers camera but the DOH (dotty old hen for you not having read Mango peoples and why?) can't find the get the pictures out of the camera cord!  sigh.......

Happy Birthday to mommy

You guys have 22 minutes to hope mommy is the same as she used to was!!! 

Sunday, September 26, 2010


Because mommy  is a DOH (dotty old hen in case you don't follow Mango and who wouldn't) I'm going to put the most recent captcha here. 

aside: do you use captchas? I'm getting an increasing amount of spam and wonder if the captcha feature keeps them out or just annoys readers.

Recent captcha:

I'm gonna 'captcha' (get it captcha) them from now on but didn't this one:


This one was to a blog about Thor. I'm not kidding here....

Nommy nommy yum yum

Mommy is feeling dubbers but wanted to post this cause, well just cause... She wants every puppy to have foodables.

How often have you had a chance to have a 20 pound bag of dog food donated to a shelter simply for writing a blog post? It’s really that easy. Pedigree has upped the ante big time. And please spread this message: The food drive is not limited to pet blogs. Imagine if we could spread this message beyond our circles and see how far it goes? The numbers could be substantial. Here is the full scoop:

•Each year, more than 4 million dogs end up in shelters and breed rescue organizations. Pedigree created The PEDIGREE Adoption Drive to help shine a spotlight on the plight of these homeless dogs.

•This year the PEDIGREE Adoption Drive is raising awareness for homeless dogs by donating a bowl of food to shelter dogs for everyone who becomes a “Fan” or “Likes” The PEDIGREE Adoption Drive on Facebook. So far more than 1 million bowls have been donated.

•Special for BlogPaws West: For each blog that posts about the PEDIGREE® Adoption Drive through September 19th, PEDIGREE® will donate a bag of their new Healthy Longevity Food for Dogs to shelters nationwide. It’s simple: Write a post, help a dog.

•Thursday, September 16 through Sunday, September 19, the Pedigree BlogPaws bloggers will host a Blog Hop, to help raise awareness for the “Write a post, help a dog” effort.

It is so easy to make a big difference. Please set aside a few moments to write a post. Include the bullet points above. Copy the pics if you’d like. Add whatever you’d like in addition to help get the message out. Because this is not limited to pet bloggers, there is tremendous potential. Know bloggers in other categories that might be interested? Please share this post with them, write one of your own, and be here Thursday to leave a link to your post. Let’s make this huge. It would just feel great.

We're late to the pawty but if you haven't posted about this please do.  And go to Life with dogs and add your link.

We love you all and miss you.  We're visiting yer bloggies though...

Da Name Game

We are playing a game with Frankie Furter where today you tell the story of how you gots yer name.  We are gonna let mommy tell the stories so take it away P P Nugget (a.k.a. our best mommy):

You know we got the babies when they were just 8 weeks old.  Having been litter mates they had personalities forming for sure already.  Still we waited and watched them.  And soon Bobo was definitely Bobo and Meja was definitely Meja and they could not be anyone else.

In Michigan when we (Jerry and I) grew up there was a famous black Big Time wrestler named Bobo Brazil.  After retirement in a rural town near here he had to fight with his image as a Bad Ass because he was really a gentle giant.  After watching Bobo the Shar Pei for awhile we just kept coming back to Bobo.  He IS Bobo.  He swaggers. he's tough, he's Bad Ass looking but while he won't shy away from a fight with his little sister, he's a lovah not a fightah.  I hope Bobo Brazil would be proud.

And Miss Meja was a delicate princess from the get go.  To her Papi!!!  To him she was his baby princess.  Even though when we picked her up she had stitches in her lip from a fight with her brothers.  She's a sneaky Bad Ass.  Her 'paper' name is Meja Caliente (fiery baby girl).  But she's the most loving sweet thing you'll ever know.  Unless you're Bobo!!!

You know if you've read this blog for long that these puppies are my heart.  And truthfully their names were somehow spoken to us, an other worldy thing really.  They were meant to be ours and we were meant to be theirs.

Thwonked Thursday

I'm slowly getting my bearings. This last hoppy tall visit took it out of me man. But being home is THE BEST even if it's mostly in the bed (mah baybees are up here with me so what's not to love? and they think they've died and gone to 'in the bed with mommy' heaven!)

Here's something to make you laugh...

Sunday, June 20, 2010


Hey Everyone, guess where I am?  Go ahead, guess?  HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMEEEEEE!!!

It is so good to be home and just in time for Father's Day.  And since I'm both mother and father to these pups... Where's My Presents???????

As the darling ones would say ...

hoppy tall

Mommy's in the hoppy tall still.  And bruvver hasn't brought her computer so she's on the iPhoney so the posting is sparse. Thanks fer all the good wishes for her though she appreciates it SO MUCH!!!

We pause in this riveting story of 'Why We Hate The Outside Beds' for a message from mommy:

I had to make an exciting trip to the emergency room this weekend.  Blood count dropped too low, passed out, alone with pups, 911 called, dogs freaked..... Yikes!!!

But I've got new blood now and will probably go home tomorrow.

In other news, Bobo has lost his mind too!

My son called me this morning, he's looking after the pups during this brief intermission, and told me Bobo was drinking out of the raised bed, new bed that's out on the deck!  It seems we had rain last night and while Selby brought the fluffy bed in he left the raised one outside.  It was full of rain, so much for the wefting allowing moisture to wick through!, so Bobo drank from it!

I may contact the company and offer to write new copy for them.
"This bed sucks as a bed but it's GREAT as a water bowl!"

See you soonest...

Beds are here... Beds are here...

This whole reviewing of the beds could be a most colossal bust.  The beds came yesterday and I put them on the deck.  As the deck is quite small and the beds are quite big, the pups have been scootering around the beds trying to find a place to lay.  ON.THE.DECK.

It seems as though two rather large, spoiled Shar Pei puppies want me to bring the couches outside for their resting pleasure. 

I got Bobo a raised bed (the Coolaroo one I wanted was discontinued, boo) and he may be too heavy for it. I hoisted (is hoist the past tense of hoist???) him on it and it sort of bowed in the middle. Yikes!

I got Meja a big juicy plush bed and she's scared of it!  Yikes X 2!

It's only the first day so I'll let you know if we have better luck or they get sent back for something else.

Pictures of 'The Avoi'dance'' to follow.

Beds coming and not a moment too soon...

We just got notice that our new beds, that we will review, have shipped!  And not a moment too soon, as you can see from these pictures.

See that little eeensy teensy little bitty carpet square under Meja's rather voluminous bottom?
That right there is ALL we have to lie on outside!!!  I know!!!

We each have one but still!  On the ground???

I included this so you could see the further cruelty and humiliation we face.
See that jury rigged gate/chair combo thingy mommy put up? That is to keep us from leaving the deck!
Wha the wha???  I know!!!

Just cause we took off the other day to 'the back forty' and mommy had to come after us and she was crying and scared is no reason for these jail like conditions here at Casa de Sweet.

In other news.....

Meja has lost her mind.

From the mommy:  She has taken to trying to bury her food dish. I heard this racket the other day in the kitchen and came in to find her with the rug all bunched up on top of the dish with 'black puppy' on top of the whole mess.  I didn't get a picture because I had to change my pants because I peed myself from laughing!

This is now her 'thing.' I don't know if she's hoarding because Bobo's eating too much or what.
Is there a 'Doggy Hoarder's show?

Oh woe!  My life is soooooooo

Dog show

Meja was very concerned they were hurting this puppy at the dog show.

She was concerned that this fellow might have a toofy ache

She decided to take a nap during this comercial.  She should have watched it.
Lord knows she and Bobo have lots-o-skin and should love it!!!

Bobo could not be bothered with this 'doggy show' nonsense.
He has 'contemplatin' to do on the arm of the couch.

After a very tough day of watching tv and contemplatin, Bobo is still contemplatin
whilst Meja continues with the nappin.
(their lives are VERY full)
