I’m Thankful for:

  • Any kind of Ball, Frisbee, disc, tug, stuffy, squeaky or thing that I can play with.
  • Pepper, she taught me from when I first came into the house what the rules were and how to play like a Terrier.
  • My friends, it was hard picking a picture because I make so many through my job. Here is me with Bandit, Falcon and Emily.
  • Buteo Bay and everything that comes with it.
  • All the brave women, men and K-9’s that keep the United States free!
  • A sense of humor that keeps my mom laughing at me when I have too much energy for her!
  • My mom….she really is the coolest!


Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

We all know that the Leinenkugel Brewery is the best thing to have ever come out of Wisconsin right? I just want you to make sure that you all are sure of that fact because I’m about to discuss another Wisconsin brew and don’t want you to get confused.

Who hasn’t at one time in their beer drinking life had a taste of good old PBR. The Pabst Brewing Company actually has quite a few beers that you may have had at one time: Shaefer, Old Style Beer, Colt 45 Malt Liquor, McSorleys Ale, and Strohs Beer.

So we just learned that you can help buy the Pabst Brewing company! so far, $5.25 Million has been pledged to but the company. Mom tried to explain the concept of crowdsourcing to me but honestly it didn’t make much sense…I couldn’t get past the whole “Lets all get together and buy a brewery!” idea.

The asking price is $300 Million, you don’t have to spend any money today. Make a pledge, you’ll be notified when the asking price is met and once you pay you’ll get a crowdsourced certificate of ownership.


Mom say’s we’re going out to find a 6 pack of PBR..got to go!

I lost my favorite red ball last weekend when I was at the park with mom. I swear I had it, I’m pretty sure that mom lost it, because I never would have lost it on my own! I think it might be hidden in our car but mom hasn’t let me search for it. So she felt guilty and went and got me a new ball. She said she wanted to try something different.

She brought home a Megaball! It is really really cool! It smells like vanilla and is a really cool shape. Mom said I wasn’t allowed to chew on it though. Kong Balls and Orbee’s are the only balls that I’m allowed to chew on. That’s ok with me, I’ll get to play with it at lessons and the park.

She also said that owning this toy said I was supporting the environment because it is eco-friendly and recyclable. Also it was made in a solar powered facility…how cool is that!

I’ve checked and it does bounce really well and it is the perfect size to carry, mom said that it floats too…maybe that means we are going swimming soon?

World War I – known at the time as “The Great War” – officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France. However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.”

Since then the United States Military has had a presence all over the world. Today we thank the millions of service men, women and K9’s that have helped keep our country free. Their extraordinary bravery and valor isn’t thanked enough. Hug a veteran today! They deserve it!

“He latched onto my hand. He gave me a friendly nip on the hand and looked at me. Wolf absolutely would not let me go by him. I looked straight ahead and not more than two feet was a tripwire. And I would have died right there with him if he wouldn’t have found that wire.” – Charlie Cargo, Vietnam dog handler

November 10, 2009 marks the 234th birthday of the United States Marine Corps. Happy birthday to all the men, women and K9’s that are serving currently or have served in the USMC. Thank you for your dedicated service. Thank you for your valued history and your bravery in battle and in peace.

Dogs have been serving in the US Marine Corps since WWII. Doberman Pinchers were the original “Devil Dogs” They were essential “personel” in Vietnam, saving many lives on a daily basis. And today they serve countless missions to help our soldiers stay safe all over the world, but especially in today’s war zones.

So from this Malinois who doesn’t do much but fun tricks and keeping my mom safe and in a job, Happy Birthday to my US Marine Corps K9 buddies. You do work that most of us could only dream of. Thanks for protecting us and keeping us safe! Cheers and I’ll make sure mom raises a Leinie or two in your honor!
