Hola friends

I've had some luck on the radio lately.  I called in last week to get on "Free Plug Friday".  It's a special time for small local businesses to plug their business on the radio.  We are slotted for this Friday - so that's super fun!  And last night I was caller number 10 and won preview movie tickets to see The Hobbit next Tuesday.  I always think it's funny that I get through with my land line phone.  I have to dial - busy signal - hang up - wait a few seconds, hit redial, then hit select to have it ring in there again.  The whole process seems to take forever  It feels like I am using a fossil since the phone nowadays are so advanced.  I imagine there are phones out there that dial again and again instantly.  So it's extra rewarding when I get through at all.  Have you ever won anything on the radio?

Woofers & Tweeters...yes, I have a few of them...woofers that is.  I have a dachshund and I married into 2 cocker spaniels and a lab/husky mix.  Uhhuh, we have them in all sizes at our house.  My step son has a pet bird at his Mom's house, so I guess we cover that topic. 

This is Moxy....the sweater is a new thing.  He seems to LOVE it!  And yes, he is definitely smiling :)


Laurie and Emily both created cards with our doxy stamp.

Laurie's card would make such a sweet baby announcement.  It's just so soft and pretty.  GREAT design and product choices...LOVE


And Emily combined the new dachshund image with our "old" one that is included with our Santa Paws stamp set.  What a cute little couple.  Soooo adoable!!


I love to hear pet names...if you have a dog (or other pet) what is their name(s)?  We have Moxy, Bailey, Buddy and Tara.

  5. Our doxie mix is named Tiberius... at first I thought my husband was being classy and paying homage to the Roman Emperor Tiberius (I was a classic major in undergrad). Then he informed me with a BIG grin on his face 'NOPE! It is James T. Kirk's middle name!" ...lovely.... We call him 'Ty' for short because we got tired of everyone asking 'his name is what?'.

  29. I love your cute little doggie in his sweater. When I was college my roommate and I had 2 dogs named Seymour and Hanratty (which will make some sense if you were a college football fan in the 60's). Later I had some cats called Felix and Oscar (as in "The Odd Couple" - which they definitely were).

  33. Too cute - can I lobby again for a Corgi - also short and long?? I have Dusty the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Daisy the Border Collie mix (named after my grandmother) and Callie who passed away almost a year ago. When I got her from the shelter her name was Calliope and we shortened it.

  37. Firstly, I want to say congrats on your radio plug! I think it's a nice thing to do for small business owners, and you sure deserve it!
    I absolutely LOVE your cards...so, so cute!!! And I loved hearing the names of your pets :-) Our little doggie, who we adopted from our son, is "Movado"! Yes, it's after the watch brand, but I had no say in the matter! Have a great day...and good luck on Friday!!!

  38. Once I have two Miniature Pinscher (in different timing) in which I named them 'Baby' as it so tiny! I really love them like my own son where I bring them to my bed! Gonna miss those days!

    I wish that your luck will keeps saying with you always! I wish I have have some so that I can get a set or two of Paper Smooches stamps! :P

  39. My family doesn't have a pet right now, but we used to have the cutest little Leopard Ghecko named Zena. She was small and had some "special needs" physically. She survived the odds thus we named her after a warrior princess. :D

  40. Hey Kim! I agree that the girls ROCKED their cards today! What a fun set (s). Love you Moxy smiling!

    I have Ranger, a 97 pound yellow lab. Yeah, he's big but I actually got 15 pounds off of him from excercise on a routine basis. He came from rescue and I don't think they were walking him. ; ) His name was Dually and they called him Dooley but he was wearing a camo collar and so his new name was born.

    I also have Jet, a 78 pound black lab. He is from a shelter and came with the name. The only color on this dog is black. You can't see him in the dark either!

  41. These are totally sweet!! I think this set has to be my favorite PS set yet! Absolutely love the adorable doggies!

    My pals are Rascal (6) a Pekischnoodle and Tinkerbell (8months) a Yorkie/Chihuahua. They are my snuggle buddies and so much fun! I can't imagine life without them! :)

  42. Cute cards and pups! I won on a radio station's website several years ago. They were doing a giveaway where the 2nd prize was a HUGE Lipton soups/yummies basket and 1st prize was a trip for 4 to FL. I entered because I REALLY wanted the basket (did I mention it was HUGE?!) but ended up going with DH and two close friends to FL for a few days. :) We have 2 cats- Bucky (named after WI's Bucky Badger since they look very similar- we're PSU fans though) and Aeryn (after a character on the SciFi show "Farscape" because of their similar personalities.)

  43. That last card is just super adorable!

  44. Those cards are adorable :) ANd I'm LOVING that sweater! We've got a houseful too - Abby, the Jack Russell/yellow Lab mix (who always looks embarrassed to wear her coat, even when it's -20C); and then the cats: Gertie, Sophie, and Maggie. And no, they don't all get along. The cats hate the dog, and Gertie hates the other cats. So, you know, that's peaceful ;)

  45. The cards are adorable and I think the stamp set is so cute and fun!
    We have 3 Shi-tzu's, Oscar (which we fondly call oddscar) Bernie (because he looks like a St.Bernard - a tiny one) and Frodo which warps into "Frito"

  46. Gorgeous cards especially Em's cute pooch couple!

    Sadly we are down to one dog at the moment - a Rhodesian Ridegeback/Doberman mix named Atticus. Last year we lost out pitbull, Scout, and earlier this year we lost our other pitbull, Jem. So Atti is on his own for now. After some initial stress he's starting to realise there are some perks to being the only dog! LOL! We'd like another dog but we're waiting for the right one to find us. (And can you tell from these guys what my favourite book is?)

  47. OMG!!!!! Those cards are simply too adorable!!!!!

    I have a poodle named Jacquette who was my "I'm done with chemo!" present 10 years ago!!!! She's been my constant companion ever since!!! And yes you read that right.... I'm celebrating 10 years cancer free this year!!!!!!!!

  51. My 12 yr old lab's name is Maggie Girl, but she has so many nicknames it's hard to keep track. I call her Silly Goose a lot because she likes to goose me all day long. And hey, congrats on those Hobbit tickets! I found out this week that I won a NOOK HD and a gift card from Hanna Andersson...it was a big thrill!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Our little white bichon frise is called Benito--yep, after Mussolini, another short-stature dictator. Guess who rules the roost in our house? I was VERY happy to receive the Woofers and Tweeters set this month! LOVE the PS stamp set names...

    ReplyDelete
  53. Love the cards and the doggie's sweater! We have a cat that adopted us, he was abandoned and staggered out of the woods by our house, so we named him "Wood"row, get it? We call him Woody for short and he is the love of our lives. Cant wait for the cat set!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Thanks for prompting my memory! For quite some time almost all our pets had names beginning with Z, so in chronological order over the past 26 years: Zeus (dog), Zoe (cat), Zephyr (dog), Zeke (cat), Zola (bird), Zara (dog), Zena (dog) and Zach (dog). Are you sorry you asked the question? :)

    And I LOVE the stamp with the little paw print inside the heart...speaks volumes!
