Cookie’s “mini-me”

August 15, 2013

Diana here!  Sometimes, during our summer travels, we must to leave our dogs at home.  And we miss them.

Thank goodness for little plush dogs we can pack in our suitcases for those moments we say “It’s good to be on vacation but…sniffle… I wish my dog was here!”  I discovered this adorable “Mini-Cookie” at a toy store in Cape Cod this summer.  It’s made by a company called Douglass (www.douglastoys.com) based in Keene, NH.  I’m happy to tell you that not only do they produce two adorable styles of stuffed-Aussies, they also make plushes of most types of popular doggies, from Dachshunds to Corgis to Cairn Terriers.  And just about every well-known breed in between.  The plushes are expressively designed and detailed and made of soft and cuddly materials, making them not only adorable but high quality.

We give them all a big “paws-up.”  Warm & fuzzies, Diana

Cookie’s Campfire Song

August 7, 2013

Here’s a little doggy-ditty for your next campfire!

Oh It’s RUFF RUFF RUFF RUFF being a dog, dinner out of a can

Please take me  to a restaurant,  I’ll sit just like a man!

Oh it’s RUFF RUFF RUFF RUFF being a dog, can’t even drive a car

Can’t sleep on the bed, don’t like it when you shed, it’s doggone too far!

You mustn’t chase the mailman, you cannot chew the rug,

Whatever you do, don’t let them see those ten-foot holes you dug!

They give you names like “Rover” or “Fido” or “Fiff”

I know those names sound good to you, but they’re embarrassing to me!

You mustn’t chase the mailman, or make the kitties squeak,

They take you for a walk on a leash like maybe once a week!

Oh it’s RUFF RUFF RUFF RUFF being a dog, dinner out of a can

Please take me  to a restaurant I’ll sit just like a man!

Oh it’s RUFF RUFF RUFF RUFF being a dog, can’t even drive a car

Can’t sleep on the bed, don’t like it when you shed, it’s doggone too far!

(KEY CHANGE:  A-LA “GLORY, GLORY HALLELUJAH”)

We mustn’t forget our puppy pals who fought for four-footed hounds!

Who fought the fights for doggy rights to keep us from the pound!

Like Snoopy, Lassie,  Rin Tin Tin and HUCKLEBERRRRRRY HOOOOOOUUUND……

A DOG IS MAN’S BEST FRIEND!  BUT …………………………..

(BACK TO ORIGINAL KEY)

Oh It’s RUFF RUFF RUFF RUFF being a dog, dinner out of a can

Please take me to a restaurant, I’ll sit just like a man!

Oh it’s RUFF RUFF RUFF RUFF being a dog can’t even drive a car

Can’t sleep on the bed, don’t like it when you shed, it’s doggone TOOOO FARRRRR!

Thank you Sophia for teaching me this great song!    And wishing YOU starry nights, s’mores, and Happy Trails! Cookie
