Dear Santa,

We have had an exciting 2012. Frappy and I were busy helping Mom out with the family business, Follow Me Dog Training LLC. We traveled to Ohio, Indiana and to Georgia. We met a lot of new friends and had some good times. Mom said that I did a great job staying on the “NICE” list but she wasn’t so sure about Frappy (something to do with a certain squirrel incident and her and Roger the Rhodesian Ridge Back knocking her down and twisting her ankle.) So I leave that decision up to you. Grandma and Grandpa, in MD, adopted a new dog a couple weeks ago. Her name is Callie. Frappy and I are getting to know her, so we decided to include her in on this letter to you and she mentioned that the Martini we are leaving for you on Christmas eve is from her.

I have everything I could ever need, but the three of us wanted to get a letter out to you so here are our Christmas wishes:

  • We have a few human friends that are spending their time in Afghanistan and other places far far away fighting for and supporting our country. We also found out one of my close friends is being deployed again in August. With this in mind, we Wish that all our men, women and Military War Dogs that are supporting the USA on foreign soil be safe and courageous this holiday season and until they can come home. 
  • We wish for the ending of breed specific legislation, spay/neuter laws, and dangerous dog laws that are poorly written and are not helping.
  • We wish all the new puppies and rescued dogs that find their homes over the holidays will explain to their owners the importance of training and exercise. (do you need some of Mom’s business cards to drop off at those homes?)
  • We wish that they would outlaw those flexi/retractable leashes…those things are dangerous for us dogs and our owners.
  • We wish for an end to dog fighting through legislation that makes sense…blame the deed not the breed!
  • We wish that when we wake up Christmas morning the room will be filled with Tennis balls, Cuz balls, Discs, Kong balls, tugs and warm beds.

Frappy wanted me to put in something about squirrels, but it wasn’t a very pretty wish, and I think it really would put her on the “Naughty list”

Frappy an I also wanted to remind you that we aren’t at our RVA home so, feel free to go there…mom always keeps the fridge full of beer and I know she didn’t finish off some brownies before we left. Thanks for everything Santa! Have a safe trip, the Leinie’s (and Martinit) will be waiting for you and I promise not to bark when you come down the chimney!

Love from your favorite Malinois, and those other two 😉

Hoppy Easter Everyone!!!!

That elusive Easter Rabbit was too smart for my plan again. Frappy says to blame the squirrels. Brady was fascinated the Bunny brought him something and now wants to spend every Easter with us. And Mom is laughing at me while she noshes on a Cadbury Creme Egg. He left me another letter, which was very nice of him, but I would rather meet him in person.

Dear Leinie,

Hoppy Easter to my dear Malinois friend. Frappy is right, blame the squirrels, they told me about your plan. I have to say, the dyed eggs were a nice touch this year. I just couldn’t stick around though to meet you….and frankly I believe it would be unsafe for my health.

I did leave you, Frappy and your Mom a present and even included something in there for young Brady. Maybe I can convince him at a young age not to hunt me down in the future. Let your Mom take the toys out of that nasty Easter grass for you. It is a choking hazard to you and all pets! I have been lobbying for years for the holiday people to get rid of it. And as you know, stay far far away from the chocolate. Make sure you teach Brady about chocolate, he seems like a cute little guy and I don’t want him to have a glass of hydrogen peroxide poured down his throat on Easter! The Wubba is for Frappy, the Jolly Egg is for you and the stuffed rabbit is for Brady. And as always the Leinenkugels is for your mom!

Below is a quote from one of my arch nemesis’s one year, it is kind of self explanatory why I choose not to meet the people or dogs I deliver to.

Elmer Fudd: I’m waiting for the Easter Wabbit. When he comes in looking so fwuffy and cute with his wittle basket of Easter eggs… BANG! Easter Wabbit stew. He he he he.

Have a wonderful Easter and we’ll see what happens next year!

The Easter Bunny

Thanks Mr. Easter Bunny…I’m taking notes and asking mom where I can learn about this Elmer Fudd guy. Right after I go play with my new Jolly Egg! My friends down at the Georgia Dog Gym have one and I coveted it. They are a ton of fun and perfect for a high energy dog like myself!

Frappy was playing with her Wubba.

But we had to make Brady earn his Easter gift. At first he wasn’t too pleased and a little confused:

We’ve all been there little buddy, at least you are too young to hold the basket in your mouth! But then Brady really took to the ears..this dog wants to be a model when he grows up!

Enough torturing the new guy and we gave him his stuffed rabbit and he was very pleased with himself.

Another Easter and another missed opportunity to meet the big Bunny. Hey Mom, can we go watch some Looney Toons, I hear they have some research, er cartoon, called “Easter Yeggs” that I should watch.

HOPPY EASTER EVERYONE!!!!!!

I like to sit with my mom while she enjoys a nice cold beer and watches Soccer…Football is not really my game. But the Super Bowl was tonight..congrats to the Giants for a last minute win! I think mom was just watching for the commercials and I am glad she was because there were some awesome commercials this year. If you want to see all the ones that focused on dogs, go to the Follow Me Dog Training LLC blog.

I wan to give honorable mention to Bud Light for their commercial this year! They deserve an award for the cool rescue dog Wego! Even though I call myself a beer dog and do a pretty good job getting beers for my mom when needed..this dog is just awesome!!!

The put out a teaser first and then the commercial..both masterpieces…I told Mom she needs to go get a Bud Light next time she is out and support great commercials like this one.

Cheers everyone!

Happy New Year!!!!!

The one night a year when mom drinks something other then beer…New Years!!!!

It seems like 2011 went by really quickly. I had a set of resolutions and I think I actually kept to all of them! I was able to adventure and explore into new areas of the Richmond VA area. Mom, Frappy and I traveled to GA, WI, NJ and OH to see friends. The business was so out of control busy that mom hardly had time to work with Frappy and I. We learned about some awesome new brews and breweries. It was a good year.

I’m ready for an even better year full of fun and friends.

Hoppy New Years!!! If you go out drinking be sure to have someone else drive you home! Cheers

Renée, Frappy and I were wrapping Christmas gifts for our nieces and nephew today. I found this awesome book that we are giving to my oldest niece. As we were were wrapping it up, mom took a few minutes to read it again and I think it is now officially one of my favorite books.

Dubs Goes To Washington And Discovers the Greatness of America… by Dick Morris, Eileen McGann and Clayton J. Liotta

This book is about a Golden Retriever named Dubs who travels to Washington D.C. It is a tragic tale wherein he looses his ball….only a Golden Retriever would loose a ball for so long.  Any good Malinois like myself would hold onto it with dear life giving it only to those that would throw it for them at least a dozen times…

In searching for his ball he visits a bunch of historic landmarks and monuments in Washington D.C. It makes a great gift for everyone in my opinion.

Mom says we should write a book about Frappy and Leinie in Richmond VA… Although I kind of already do this with our challenge over at Follow Me Dog Training LLC called Where’s Leinie?

If you are looking for a last minute gift, check out this book. I give it four paws up!

Taking a moment to honor our fallen Men, Women and Military War Dogs on Memorial Day 2011.

I went to visit the Virginia War Memorial with my mom a couple months ago and it was a powerful reminder of the sacrifices the United States has made through it’s men, women and MWD’s.

So at the very least take a break from your holiday weekend activities and at 3pm on Memorial Day, pause for the Moment of Remembrance. Reflect on the sacrifices big and small of those that have served our country so that we may stay free.

Then you can raise a Leinie’s in memory to those that have passed and in thanks to those that are serving! Hey CSM James Hamm, I’ll make sure mom raises a couple for you and come home safe so we can toss a frisbee together sometime soon!
