I think I partied too much this weekend!

Please visit Camera Critters Meme and check out lots and lots of critters. Its fun! Oh my goodness, it was a fun weekend around here. The Badgers and the Packers won and the Tigers are getting closer to being the champs. My Mommy sure knows how to throw a party. I wish you could have all joined me. Now I am exhausted. I can barely lift my head. I ate too much cheese and I think it is weighing me down, I can't get up.

Ohhhhhhh, I think I will try to sleep for a while. Mayhaps I will dream about cheese and my friends and I having a party together. Wouldn't that be nice. On second thought I could use a belly rub. I think I will go find my Daddy. He gives the best belly rubs.

Daddy is a sports nut, fanatic and every other word that there is for his addiction. Needless to say he is happy right now. When the Daddy is happy, everyone is happy. At least around here. I love my Daddy, I just wish he didn't yell at the talking box so much. I don't even like the talking box, cause when it talks no one pays attention to me. Sometimes I hear the doorbell ring or someone knocking at the door and I run to check. I hear everyone laughing and saying, silly pup, its just the talking box. I think it is evil. What do you think? Does your family have a talking box? Please let me know so we can figure it out together. Maybe the Scarlet Puppynickel will come and take it away(giggle).

Sashy's College Football Friday!!!

Hi to my pals! It is Friday and time to plan another tailgate party for tomorrow. This week is important according to my Daddy, they start conference play(whatever that is). Wisconsin plays Michigan State. Its kind of funny because we live in Michigan, but since Mommy and Daddy came from Wisconsin they still want the Badgers to win. If they want them to win, so do I.

Here is a picture of last weeks cherry pie that Mommy and big Sis made and I got to share it!! It was soooooooo yummy.

Ok on to this weeks menu:
1. Pulled pork sandwiches(this is one of Mommies favorites)
2. Veggies and dip (no green veggies this week cause of Michigan State)
3. Assorted cheeses(duh from Wisconsin) and cocktail breads (the cheese I get to share)
4. Homemade apple-peach sauce(Mommy went to the farmers market for the fruit)
5. Homemade coconut angel food cake with coconut frosting.
I can't wait. I hope you all have a nice weekend and enjoy your football games. Brutus I wish you luck my friend, October 10th is coming fast(giggle), getting nervous?

Please Read Sasha's Important Tip of the Week

Hi to all my pals. Mommy gets a newsletter from the ASPCA and she wanted to pass this on to all of my buddy's and your Moms and Dads. I don't get it but it seems pretty important. I mean Mommy explained that it might help her and Daddy paying the Vet bills for me and stuff. I am hoping that means more money for treats. That is so much a good thing. Its worth checking out anyway. Maybe we can make a difference together.
"Dear Animal Advocates, Introduced by Rep. Thaddeus McCotter, H.R. 3501—known as the Humanity and Pets Partnered Through the Years (“HAPPY”) Act—is a federal bill that would reward responsible pet parents by allowing them to keep more money in their pockets come tax time. We all want to give our animal companions the best care we possibly can, but it seems that pet care costs are always on the rise—and these days, it’s harder than ever to stretch the family budget. That’s why the ASPCA supports H.R. 3501, which would amend U.S. tax code to allow qualifying pet care expenses, including veterinary care, to be tax-deductible. This means that when you prepare your income taxes, money you spent on pet care that year would count as non-taxable income—and you can deduct up to $3,500 per year! Please help us support the HAPPY Act, H.R. 3501.

I love cherry pie, well I love all pies I guess, but since they made cherry right now I love cherry pie. Here I am almost in shock in anticipation of the treat ahead. "Is this really all for me Mommy?"

Please excuse my manners here. I can't control myself as I savor this treat. Yummy, oh its delicious. I don't even care that the flashy beast is recording my gluttony.

I must come up for air and to lick the crumbs off my face. I am going so fast that the flashy beast can't even keep up with me. Seriously my friends you must try this.

Sasha has news to share

Hello my friends, while I was out taking a walk today I came across a p-mail message from some of my neighborhood friends. I would like to pass it on to you. Since I can't send it by p-mail I will have Mommy type it for me. It came originally from The Animal Rescue Site(animalrescuesite.com) You may have already read it but it can't hurt to pass it along again. Animal shelters always need help financially. I was thinking that perhaps if we all went together and voted for one site, we may have a chance of one site winning some money. Of course we can all go individually to our favorite sites, I just thought it might have more impact if we all banded together and kept voting daily for the same site. I don't know, please let me know what you think.
"Beginning today and each day through December 20th, you can cast your vote for your favorite participating Petfinder.com shelter or rescue group. You could help that shelter win one of three big prizes, which include a $3,000 grant for third place; $5,000 grant for second place; and a $20,000 Grand Prize grant.
In addition to those grants, we're offering a pair of $2,000 judged prizes for the most touching story and photo from a shelter. We know there are plenty of heartwarming tales of rescued animals out there, so if you work at a participating Petfinder.com rescue organization, visit our
story page to share your favorite story and photo today!
The prizes don't end there. There will be weekly $1,000 grants given, plus $1,000 prizes given to top vote-getters in each of the 50 states, and Washington D.C., the top two organizations in Canada and one pet shelter or organization located outside North America. Every vote counts so don't hesitate:
Start today!

Sashy's College Football Friday!!!

Hello to all my friends. It is another football Friday. The Wisconsin Badgers will be playing Fresno State tomorrow in a non-conference game at home in historic Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, Wisconsin. At our house College football means a lot of yelling and good food. Mommy always makes a tailgate party which always makes my tail wag. Here are some suggestions to pass on to your families for the party.

1. Cheese and crackers, you can never go wrong with this and I always end up getting my share. They are from Wisconsin, no respectable tailgate would go without this.

2. Grilled brats and hot dogs, this is a Wisconsin have to have it food. I usually can mooch some hot dog, if I am lucky. Try to persuade them to make sandwiches, more chance for meat.

3. Jalapeno Popper Dip, I don't care so much for this, it is a little spicy but if you are interested, Mom has the recipe on her comfort food blog.

4. Watermelon, need I say more, there is always room for watermelon.
5. Cookies shaped like Bucky Badger with red and white sprinkles, oh my these are good.

Well that is it for this edition. I will be back next Friday with more tailgate ideas and suggestions. Have a fun football Saturday, wherever you are(sorry Brutus you have to watch Ohio, I hope they don't lose too badly). On Wisconsin.

A Fun Game to Play

My new friend Jasmine who happens to be a goat tagged me to play a fun game. I have never met a goat up close, but Jasmine seems really cool. Mommy showed me a video of her talking and singing I think and wow, does she have a voice. Please go visit her and watch her video at

Jasmine's Goat Jargon . She is a beautiful goat.

For the game I need to name 6 things that make me happy. This will be fun.

1. Sleeping anytime but especially with my Mommy. She is the best snuggler.
2. Eating. I do love to eat. I can be somewhat picky at times. I can never say no to cheese.
3. Playing. I have a whole big toy box full of toys. They are all my favorites, but my mostest favorite is my squeaky hot dog and blue elephant and my stuffy mango.
4. Snack time, not to be confused with eating, these are 2 totally different events. I am a big fan of pupperoni and Zen treats.
5. Walky time. My Dad and my sis mostly take me and I love to go, but I am also very excited to come back. I don't like to be away from Mommy for too long.
6. Nap time, not to be confused with sleeping, totally different. Naps are shorter and more frequent.

I always have a hard time tagging people to play as I don't know where to stop. I am going to tag
1. Olive , Olive is a newer blogger and I would like to know more about her.
2. Burnt Chicken Republic I would like to know more about Coffee and Oreo
3. I need a Sugar fix Captain and Candy are just babies so I think it would be fun to read what they like so far.

I tag anyone else who would like to play this fun game.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Eyewatch Friday and Sasha's Important Tip of the Week!

Please visit Norwood at norwood unleashed! for more eyes to watch.

Hello my friends, as you may know there have been lots of home changing things going on around here lately. Mom found the info below from the ASPCA and we both thought it would be good to pass it along. I don't normally eat glue myself, but I do sometimes chew on furniture and areas that may have glue, so we felt it was good for my pet friends to be informed. Hope you all have a nice Labor Day weekend and get lots of goodies and no tummy aches. Pet Poison Alert: Accidental Ingestion of Wood Glue on the Rise

Our country’s new-found thrift has lead many homeowners to save a penny by tackling do-it-yourself home improvement projects. But take care, pet parents—you may be exposing your furry friends to dangerous tools and tricks of the trade. Polyurethane glue, a water-resistant adhesive and favorite of woodworkers, is highly toxic if ingested by cats and dogs.
According to data from the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center (APCC), pet poisonings from wood glues—and other adhesives containing the substance diphenylmethane diisocyanate (MDI)—are on the rise. In the past 12 months, the APCC handled more than 170 cases of pets who ingested expanding glues. Of those incidents, the majority involved dogs and were evaluated at high or medium risk for developing severe, life-threatening problems.
Polyurethane glue—also known by brand names like Gorilla Glue and Elmer’s Pro-Bond—is prized for its ability to bond to wood. If eaten, however, the glue expands in the stomach’s warm, moist environment and forms a softball-sized lump. A dog who eats even a small amount of MDI-based adhesive can experience severe gastrointestinal problems resulting in blockages and requiring emergency surgery to remove the mass.
Pet parents should treat any expanding adhesive as a potential hazard, since the offending chemical MDI is not always listed on product labels. Like all toxic household products, wood glue should be stored in a secure cabinet to prevent your furry beloveds from coming into contact with it. If you suspect your pet has ingested polyurethane glue, please call your vet or the ASPCA’s 24-hour poison hotline at (888) 426-4435. And for more information about keeping your pet domestically sound, check out our handy online guide to creating a poison-safe home.

New Kitchens are EVIL

Hello my friends. I always had a bad feeling about this new kitchen idea from the start. I am sad to say that I was right. My Mommy got a new sink with a new sprayer thingy(the old one was broken) and to celebrate I get a BATH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I ask you how is that a way to celebrate. Mommy needs to look that word up in the dictionary. Oh the horror of it all, she kept spraying me and spraying me, I tried to fight, but in the end I am clean. It took me days and weeks to get this good smell on me and its gone, just like that for no reason at all. I think she even held my head under water at one point and I blacked out. Sasha, I did not you take that back!! Oops ok maybe she didn't but she looked like she wanted to. I am defeated and I need a nap.

Beware sink sprayer thingy's my friends.
