Dog Day Sunday: Sibling Rivalry

Dog siblings are a lot like human siblings: they fight, hog the good food, and take each others toys without bothering to ask permission.

So this Dog Day Sunday we’re going to explore the sibling rivalry that exists within the canine world with Bailey and Riley!

Bailey and Riley are both one-year-old Zuchons, with the latter being the older by 5 months. They are half siblings who live in separate homes, but they play together very often and are the best of friends, but at times also the best of enemies.

Check out the gallery below to see them in action!

Dog Day Sunday: Mia of the Rings

Meet Mia, one of the four-legged rescues at Noah’s Animal House in Las Vegas, Nevada, a refuge for abused and displaced women, children, and their pets. Sadly, Mia’s mom couldn’t keep her, so this sweetie is up for adoption.

She loves giving kisses, running to and fro, and playing with her toy ring (the latter which inspired this week’s Lord of the Rings themed edition of Dog Day Sunday)!

Update: Mia has been reunited with her mama! There hasn’t been a day this joyous since the Hobbits returned to the Shire!

Dog Day Sunday: Puppy Days

Anyone who has ever been a dog-parent to a puppy knows that their eventual transition into an adult is both relieving and disappointing.

Your adult dog finally sleeps the entire night, knows when and where to potty, and generally stops being so rambunctious (well, if you’re blessed!). But, lets face it, there’s nothing cuter than a tiny puppy, and looking back at old photos pet owners will naturally long for that time back, pee puddles and all.

So this Dog Day Sunday we’re going to look back on those wonderful, yet terrible, puppy days with Bailey, a now 1-year-old Zuchon:

Dog Day Sunday: Shadow

Happy Dog Day Sunday! Meet Shadow, my sweet fur-baby who we adopted from a Las Vegas rescue group called Adopt a Rescue Pet. (We think he’s about 4 years old and part chihuahua, part rat terrier, part CAT, and all cuteness).

He likes sitting in laps (especially when I’m at the computer typing GGW articles),  playing with his “squeaker” toys, chasing laser pointers, chomping on bones, and playing with his fur-sister Daisy.

Dog Day Sunday: Rescues and Drunks!

It doesn’t matter whether you have rain, shine, or apocalyptic asteroids being pelted down on you, it’s Sunday, and Sunday is always the perfect day to snuggle up with your fur baby.

But if you don’t have a fur baby to snuggle up to, fear not! The internet was invented solely so we could look up pictures of cute animals. Well, that and dirty, dirty things.

….But lets just focus on the former for today!

Here are seven awesome pets that are sure to brighten even the most miserable of days:

Murphy & Roxy

Murphy on the right is my “brusselranian” I got him in 2009 from Georgia Rescue and Rehab. The breeders of pomeranian and brussell griffin accidentally let the two breeds mix and when the pups (1 boy and 1 girl) were born they threw them away. Murphy and his sister were both adopted yay. He is very protective of me.

Roxie is on the left…basically found while I was checking on another dog I thought was injured. The owner of dog I was checking on came out of a shack wearing a t-shirt only…had maybe 3 teeth in her mouth and Roxie followed her out. Her dog was not injured and she said if you want this puppy you can have it…there was no way I was leaving that baby there and thats how we got her. She doesn’t know she’s a dog. She wants to be cuddled at all times.

As you can see in picture they get bored easily.

– Shannon, Alabama

Riley

This is Riley. He likes to pee on couches even if he’s just peed outside. He is a master at catching balls in his mouth and loves to play frisbee. He’s a total cuddle bug and super protective of his humans.

– Alana, Connecticut

Skippy

This is Skippy! We’ve had him for 11 years now and he’s the best little guy to come home too, especially when I’m home sick. His past times are attacking sprinklers, going on long walks and goes swimming at the lake! He loves to play with “little men” and chase the ball when you play catch in the yard. He loves to cuddle and is wicked friendly to people and other dogs.

– Penelope, Florida

Pepper

Pepper, she’s very shy, but when she’s feeling frisky, she wont stop asking to play in the backyard or go for a walk. She’s a rescue, and although she’s a bit weird, we’re glad to give her a loving, safe home.

– Dan, New York

Smokey Joe

This is Smokey Joe got him when he was 4 months old. I broth him home in 2012. He loves meeting anyone and he likes a like beer every now and then. But he loves the ladies.

– Sandy, Alabama

Genevieve

This modest little lady is Genevieve. She’s our rescue baby. She had a very hard start in life. She had horrible things done to her when she was young. If you’re wondering where her tail is well that’s one of the things done to her, it was not taken off by a Dr. So now she’s rightfully the laziest, spoiled rotten fur baby there is and she’s loved by everyone.

– Landy, Alabama

Walter T. Pigg

This is Walter Thaddeaus Pigg of the Alpine. He is fancy as hell.
He like things like chewing stairs and walls. He is baffled why kitty cats don’t like him. He bows like Buckbeak when he’s saying sorry. He steals whiskey from mommy. He is perplexed by broccoli. He’s the best Bernese ever!

– Jacilyn, New York
