What am I, lunch??

I am a very lucky and thankful dog today.
Over the weekend I got attacked by an aggressive dog. He tried to eat me!
You can see where his jaws were around my neck.

It was really scary, but it could have been a lot worse and I feel very lucky to be okay. Just a couple of little holes.

Plus I got to go to a vet who gushed about how handsome and amazing I look for my "mature and distinguished" (thanks Gus!) 11 years.

It happened very quickly or else I'm sure I could have scared him away first. :)

I'm a tough guy and I'm feeling pretty good, but I'm milking this for all it's worth - treats, a nice cozy spot on the people bed, and lots of belly rubs.

I can't wear my collar for a little while but I should be fine in about a week.

Big Bully Birthday!

I turned 11 years old this past weekend. Thank you to Kirby, Molly and Taffy, Maggie and Mitch, and Keeley and Teagan for their lovely birthday cards!

I had fun playing with all of the kids who were visiting, and I got to have a play date with my friend Rosie. But check it out - I got a 30-INCH BULLY STICK!!! YUM!!!! I have been working on it for a week. I also got a cat-shaped cookie, and a stuffed frog with a furry chest and an Elvis-style lip curl - a little weird! I think it was in the bargain bin!

Marco and Ocho the PWDs are coming tomorrow, so we are going to the park together. I am looking forward to that! And did you see that Bo Obama wrote an op-ed for the New York Times? Maybe he will join Dogs with Blogs next!!

Have a great weekend everybody!

My presidential puppy pal

Okay, okay - he's not really Bo Obama. This is my Portuguese Water Dog friend Marco, who lives in Chicago. He and his PWD brother Ocho come to visit my friend Rosie because they are her nephews, technically. Marco used to be a show dog until they found out he had a little heart murmur. They're fun pals!

Happy July!

Hello friends! Are you enjoying the summer? Things have obviously been kind of busy here. I HOPE I am going to catch up on everyone's news today.

Things are going well here. In about 6 weeks I am going on vacation to Maine with my people, which will be great. In the meantime, I have been making a few trips to the dog park and hanging out with my friend Rosie. My parents are both working and pretty busy - my dad was gone for three weeks in Colorado, having fun without me. :( My mom is still in school and tearing her hair out. She sheds more than I do!

Check out what came in the mail to my mom's boss. She has to open the mail and there was a letter from Placido Domingo! He is a famous opera singer, and conductor like my dad, but perhaps his greatest work was in ... BEVERLY HILLS CHIHUAHUA!

Placido Domingo played the role of Monte the Chihuahua, a little dog with a big voice. Monte is the dog on the left in the picture. It's a cute movie if you haven't seen it, but all the doggie clothes made me a little nervous. :) I didn't want my mom getting any ideas.

This weekend a whole bunch of my family is coming to visit, including 7 kids! I only get to play with 6 of them, because one is allergic, but they are fun.

Fun Foxy Stuff!

My mom is always thrilled when she finds WFT merchandise because there is not a lot of it out there. We fox terriers are rare and special. After seeing some of Cath Kidston's fun products on Jackson's and Eric's blogs, my mom got a couple of items for Christmas:

A cute wallet and keychain! There are some fun matching rain boots on the site that my mom wants now (they call them "Wellies" in England) but they are a tad bit too expensive.

Another cool WFT item she got for Christmas was a cool keychain from Pop Dog Press, made by Simba's HM! She makes cool stuff for all kinds of breeds, not just foxies! This picture is from Simba's website - my (oops, I mean my mom's) keychain is red.

And now I will shamelessly promote the COOLEST WFT ITEM EVER!!!!

Jackson's Forever Foxed makes fantastic foxy greeting cards, but also now, these:

Buttons! Badges! Whatever you want to call them, they're pawesome.

Go check out our talented friends' sites, especially if you are a foxy fan!
