Hi my Pals, Mommy and I have been working hard on just the right recipes for our "Pizza Stand" for the Back to School event. We will be serving possum pizza of course, as everyone seemed to enjoy it during the Olympics.
Possum pizza, we get help with the ingredients from Puddles and Ruby( I hope she is feeling better ). If any of you happen upon a possum when you are hunting, can you please dead it for me and send it in some dry ice to keep it fresh. Thanks, we can always use more possum.
Mommy decided to add another choice that we think everyone will like but especially my feline pals. We are making our super secret recipe for "Mousatoille". It is really delicious and here is a little preview:
Above is a nice bowl of mouse guts and some fresh tomatoes mixed in for flavor.
Here is the finished product, it is topped with freshly grated parmesan cheese and there are some other fresh from the farmers market veggies. It is delicious and also nutritious. I hope it does well, we will have plenty of pizza just in case it isn't popular. No matter what happens, there will be plenty to eat at "Sasha's Place".
I can't wait for school to start. I have never gone to school, so I am a little nervous and also very excited.
Hi my Pals, thanks to everyone for coming to the pawty for National Dog Day. I hope you had fun, I had a blast. I ate too much cake and there were a few problems in the bouncy house. I hope Ernie didn't get too scared when it popped and we all had to run out real quick. Everyone is fine thank dogness.
My Sister and Boyfriend brought me my own ice cream cup with a crunchy biscuit in it.
It was so good and so much fun to eat all by myself.
The bad thing is claws I got kind of messy, Mommy made me take a bath. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
After the pawty, ice cream and bath, I was pretty much done in. I am gonna sleep for a long while now.
Have a great day everyone!! I am happy to be a dog.
Hi my Pals, its National Dog Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just have to tell you about a special day coming up for us doggies. We have a day just for us!!! I am so excited. I think it is so important to especially honor all the service dogs and rescue dogs that do so much to help others and make us all proud to be dogs. So lets all celebrate the joy of being dogs together.
National Dog Day
An Animal Welfare Holiday to Adopt and Honor Pets
Some go into law enforcement. Some go into medicine. But
they all appreciate a good belly rub. Whether they're saving lives or
simply enriching them, rescue dogs, police dogs, therapy dogs and family
dogs are selflessly devoted to making the world and their homes a
better place. But with four million adoptable animals put down every
year, many dogs never get the chance to put their big hearts to use.
August 26 is National Dog Day, a holiday to celebrate dogs and all
that they do for us, and to welcome those in need into our lives through
National Dog Day founder Colleen Paige was inspired to create the
holiday after looking a coffee table book that depicted the horrors and
triumphs of 9/11 without a single mention of the hundreds of rescue dogs
who put their lives on the line at Ground Zero to help the emergency
"The lack of attention for what these dogs endured and accomplished
made me weep," said Paige. "It also made me realize all that they do,
unconditionally, and how so many are abused and abandoned. I felt that
they needed a day of recognition, a day for us to say "thank you" for
saving our lives, lowering our blood pressure, guiding our blind,
protecting our streets, our homes and our families, and to show our
appreciation by helping to celebrate them and save lives in return."
With the support of the Animal Miracle Network, National Dog Day has
grown annually with events expanding as far as Puerto Rico, England and
Italy. Affiliates are welcomed to host their own National Dog Day events
ranging from dog shows,walkathons and photo contests to picnics,
adoption drives and fairs.
If you're already a proud pet owner, take some time on National Dog
Day to show your dog how much you appreciate him. Paige¡¦s recommended
holiday activities include having a picnic at a dog park, inviting the
neighborhood dogs over for a pool party, coordinating a costume parade
on your street, taking your dog shopping to pick out a new toy and
planning a pet-friendly getaway.
If you're looking to give a homeless dog a loving home, visit
www.adoptapet.com to meet your new best friend. With pet adoption,
you'll find that National Dog Day will be the first of countless great
ones to come.

You were all outstanding and thank you for participating.

2. A boxlike covering or enclosure.
3. The act of enclosing in a box.
Tim has mastered sleeping with one eye open, but if you come near...look out.
Dougall and Floyd, I am afraid Floyd, being a Boxer, may have the advantage here, but Dougall is giving it all he has. This is a great show of working together and thinking your way through a problem.I do hope Dougall is ok now.
Benny and Lily are hoping to avoid a bath by hiding out. Nice job! "Lily you keep looking that way and I'll look this way" "Do you see her?" "Duck"
Chloe is a cutie sitting in a cutie box. Her beautiful furs blend right in.
Chloe is planning a sneak attack on Cecil. Shhhhhhhhh.
Doc has a full belly after eating all the fancy feast. Time for a nap.
Posie is pretending to be a gift and surprise everyone. Unfortunately Posie ran out of snacks and had to come out before the surprise.
Pigeon is blending in and trying to catch her opponent off guard. Great tactic, I hope it works. Wait, where is Pigeon?
After a day at Bed Bath and Beyond, Oskar can't decide if he should paint his box, blue or brown. Does it need carpeting?
Nola told me that sometimes "a girl just needs her own space" and also needs a break from her new baby sister Phee. After a few minutes she will be ready to go again.
Molly got a little too excited to open her package from the Queen and got, well, stuck. Tuck and roll girl.I have 911 on stand by.
Mitch is having a little fun with Molly. I know he won't really mail her to London. Right Mitch?? Mitch??
Mitalee and Levon demanded their own living space. We all need our personal time.
Manny Boy is getting his game face on! I don't think I will mess with him.
Madi is ready to settle in with a good Diva magazine and then a nap. Sweet dreams Madi.
Lassiter Chase and Benjamin have actually become boxes by putting their images all over. Great idea, now where are the real doggies?
Lily Belle may have taken things a little too literally here, but what a great job. Hang in there Lily Belle, help is on the way.
KC proudly showing the colors of her country. You can see her sniffling, as the anthem is played. A true patriot.
Jazzi is making sure that this box, never, ever hurts anyone again. Good job Jazzi!
Einstein has become the box and the box has become Einstein.
Darwin is only half sure and is still thinking about what to do next, or his butt is stuck.
Dip Dip has picked a box that expresses her "true" size at heart. In my eyes you are "magnum"!
Dexter looks concerned, because Mango has a big roll of tape and lots of stamps. Hmmm...
Roo is certainly proving that he is the worlds biggest ham and is quite proud of it. Way to go Roo
Reuben found a great place to snuggle. Don't let anyone close you up in there my pal.
Puddles was unaware that the blankets were plotting an attack. I am not sure who is going to win, Puddles or the blanket, but nice left hook Puddles. Keep fighting girl and your hairs look great.
It looks like Puddles won that round and she has found a very good use for a box, which is to trap her opponent to avoid any payback.Can you see that keen look of confidence in her eyes? Did we ever doubt she would win?
Winston is trying this one on for size before he decides which one to keep. Decisions, decisions.
Willow smells treats and is searching for the opening while using her tail to hold the box down.
Sweet William must be packing a box with pressies for his sweet Jazzi. Is that a dreamy look in your eyes?
Spunky Doodle has the right idea, if you are going to box, make it a pizza box.
Sissi Cat looks to be hiding from the flashy beast, which her Mom is pretty much an expert at. You go girl!
Scribbles is making sure that nobody tries to close him in the box. He is sleeping with both eyes open, another amazing talent.
Sally Ann is trying to play hide and seek from Andy, but can't quite get her head all the way in there.
Rubie displays her flag proudly and is ready to represent. Now if she had only remembered to bring snacks with her.

Mindy works on sneaking up on a balloon and catching it off guard.
Nikki and Derry are showing great form here with excellent foot positioning.
Sarge looks very fit and handsome as he spars before the match. It is easy to see why he is in charge of the law here in blogland.
Stormy is learning how to get back up after a knock down. Get up Stormy, get up!!
