Video Tips from our Aunt Nancy

Our beloved Aunt Nancy Medina who has Flower Mound Studios is making a "how to" video on painting (she is a wonderful artist). She has learned so much making her first video and we think she has come up with some novel tips, like...

• When filming a video in your studio, if you happen to own a dog who has never regurgitated in its life, it will choose a moment when you are filming to regurgitate loudly and with enthusiasm.

• When filming a video in your studio, be forewarned that at a crucial moment in the painting, your easel will most assuredly collapse, causing you to blurt out words on camera you wouldn't say in Sunday school.

• If your husband is doing the filming, even if he has never before seen a painting video, be assured he knows a lot more about what should go into your painting video than you do.

• If you happen to have four pugs in the studio with you during filming, be sure you do not begin filming one hour before the pugs' mealtime, since the elder pug will take it upon himself to find ways to creatively remind you that a mealtime is eminent.

• After you have fired the husband/cameraman, ordered him out of your studio, and exclaimed that it is time to return the new video camera to Best Buy the next day, eat chocolate. Chocolate calms the soul.

• The next morning, after husband/cameraman asks to return to his post and swears to not utter a single word during the entire filming, lock well fed pugs in kitchen and proceed with video.

Mum says there is nothing we do worth videotaping at this time, mostly because it would cause undue concern and revulsion to our viewers...whatever!

Love, Dozer

We're Blogging for Kibble

Blog and feed our friends in shelters!

Our bestest friend at The Daily Corgi has informed us of the following!

"For every blog post about the campaign between now and June 30th, Pedigree will donate a bag of food to a shelter via The Rescue Bank. Want to know more? Check out my post, get yours written today and join the fun of our Blog Hop!

Yep, it's THAT easy, and some homeless dogs will thank you with a waggly tail and a hopeful woof. Need more incentive than that? (As if!) Write the post, include the URL in a comment below (before July 3) and I'll enter you in a drawing for the Pedigree "dogs rule" swag I got at BlogPaws 2012: a snappy set of covetable items, including a tote bag, ball cap and collar, all in midnight black, emblazoned with "dogs rule" in canary yellow. You know you want 'em!"

We have no idea what a swag bag is but we are game for it! Laurie of The Daily Corgi is promoting this and we have to tell you that Laurie is a fine lady and devoted dog owner and whatever she recommends - well, you know it is reputable and wonderful cause!

So get out your pencils and start blogging! We've included links to everything you will need - so no excuses pals!

Love, Dozer and Cooper Edwards

Horrors! (This is just to get your attention)

Where has the time gone? Indeed we ask that ourselves, quite often! It was a busy May for us with our Grandmother falling and fracturing her shoulder – Mum had to fly out to Chicago  to check out on Grandmummy and stayed for a whole week. We were, of course, lonely, but Dad took good care of us.

While we have been away the most shocking things have happened and we list them in no particular order:

 1.      I (Dozer) have had to go to the vet because I have rubbed my face raw due to allergies. I have another visit to the vet today because it has begun again.
2.      Cooper had a haircut.

3.      We are having a small party on July 1st for our doggie friends. Please pray that the rain stops.

4.      Grandmummy has decided to move out to Oregon so Mum is scrambling to get GM’s apartment outfitted with furniture and essentials at the assisted living hotel.

5.      It is raining incessantly here. Even if this is typical of Oregon, it is most unwelcome.

6.      Both of us have tried running away when Mummy or Dad let us out in the front yard. I made it across the street to the neighbor’s house where I pooped under their tree and pee’d on their bushes. Cooper headed straight down the street towards town and ignored all of Mum’s screaming. Eventually we were corralled home and given a stern lecture. Yeah…whatever.

Mum says we will update our blog regularly now and we ask forgiveness from our subscribers for having you let you down so terribly. I would like to remind our dear readers that we are entirely dependent on Mum to keep our blog updated and current. She is totally worthless at times and her priorities need realignment.

I am off to the vet in a few minutes and shall update you on their findings.
