Last Day to Enter the Giveaway!

Today is the last day to enter The Organic Hound Co. giveaway (you have until midnight Eastern time to e-mail your pictures)!  Here is a link to the original post:  http://adventuresofacattledog.blogspot.com/2011/07/keeping-it-cool-contest.html.  In a nutshell, e-mail us your dog’s photos of how they like to keep cool on a hot day and you could score some awesome loot from The Organic Hound Co!  The contest is only open to US and Canada residents.  E-mail us at riley.acd(at)gmail(dot)com.  [Obviously, replace the “(at)” with @ and the “(dot)” with a . ]  I just don’t want spammers getting a hold of our e-mail!

Here are a few ways Riley likes to keep cool on a hot day:

By dunking her whole snout in her water bowl…

 By enjoying a homemade “Frosty Paws…”
By lying on the cool tile…

By taking a nice cool dip at the beach…

And by chilling out indoors with her belly up in the air for maximum coolness!
Also, our Puggle friend Minnie from Minnie and Mack’s Daily Digest is sick with pancreatitis in the hospital right now.  😦  Stop by their blog and give their Mama, Kathy, some lovin’ and encouragement!  Here is the link:  http://minnieandmacksdailydigest.blogspot.com/.  Thanks!!

While Mom’s Away…The Dog Will Play

I feel so out of it when it comes to “Blog Land…!”  I went to St. Louis on Wednesday and got back laaaate Sunday night due to a twice delayed flight.  I went to train state trainers in NAMI’s Peer-to-Peer Recovery Education Course.  I had a great time but it was very tiring and I’m definitely glad to be home with Riley once again!  I told her I’ll never leave her again…until next time!  🙂  Here are some pictures of what Riley did while I was away:

 Let’s play!!
Half of a rope toy.
Yum!!  Grandma gave her a Frosty Paws.
Waiting on Mommy’s delayed flight to finally get in…  Having fun with Grandma and Grandpa is exhausting!
Yay!!  Mommy’s FINALLY home!!  She always puts her ears back when she’s happy.
Big hug.  I’m so happy to be back home with my baby girl!!
