Max - Our 100th post!!
JD - Bring out the balloons....the streamers......the bubbly!!!
Max - This will be our camera critters post AS WELL AS our pet pride post!
JD - It's because - as part of our celebrations - our human is going to donate a pound to the Dogs Trust for EVERY comment that is left against this post so we want as big an audience as possible, he he he....
Max - .... AND they're also going to donate a pound for everyone who signs our guest book during September. We've got 27 signatures so far - so that's a starting point of £27....
JD - .... so please leave a comment, sign our guest book and get your friends, family and neighbours (he he he!) to pop along and do the same. Let's get that money rolling in for Dogs Trust - they do such good work helping to re-house doggies as well as identifying doggies to train as service and assistance doggies!
Max - "Hey, JD - do you think we'd be good guide dogs?" Female Human - "Puff! Pant! Definitely NOT Max!!"
Max - We can hardly believe that we're publishing our 100th post! We could not have done it without all our wonderful friends out there in the blogosphere!
JD - So, to mark one hundred we are going to write about three 'firsts'. Here we go....
Max - The first 'first' we want to celebrate is the very first dog blog our female human ever stumbled across. It was back before she had even decided which doggie to get!
JD - That's right! Our female human had decided she would like either a Daschund or a Schnauzer - so was browsing the Internet one day ....
Max - .... and discovered the beautiful and wonderful Ruby and Penny!
JD - Our female human was enchanted - she still is! She (and us) ADORES Ruby and Penny's blog! She fell in love with the two of them.
Max - In fact - did you know if it wasn't for Ruby and Penny there would probably only be ONE of us - how awful would that be? We can't even begin to think about it!
JD - Female human loved how well Ruby and Penny got on and decided to get two dogs. She didn't actually mean to get two dogs at the same time though, that was our choice, he he he!
Max - And hey, do you do know what? It was only because the schnauzer breeder had a litter before the daschund breeder that we're here now!
JD - Yeah - we were nearly daschunds! We're glad our real mum and dad couldn't keep their paws off each other and got 'down to it', otherwise you might have been reading about two other hounds right now!!
Max - Thank you Ruby and Penny! Your blog is great - the excitement when you left us your first message was wonderful!
JD - That's right! But the very first comment EVER left on our blog was .... 'Tally-ho! My mom type person told me to say that!"
Max - Can you guess who that was?! It was the incredibly handsome Oskar!
JD - We LOVE Oskar's blog - it's funny and stylish and he is a great pal. His mom type person is fab too - she's helped our female human with schnauzer-type questions and we've all become great friends. It's just a shame there's a big pond keeping us apart - the fun we could have if we all met up would be phenomenal!
Max - Oskar - you rock! So much so that we've chosen today - our 100th post - to proudly display the Oskar award that you passed onto your pals!
JD - This award was especially designed just for Oskar - THAT'S how cool he is! Thanks Oskar - we are proud to display this award!
Max - And now our last 'first' - our first love. *Sigh!*
JD - We think that you all guessed who this is - we've made no secret of our puppy love for her *Sigh!*
Max - It is the delightful, the beautiful, the witty, the brave, the strong, the charming and the intelligent Sasha. *Sigh!*
JD - Sasha is our first love and will always continue to be so. We realise we will never get to meet so we will have to be content to just gaze at her photos, read all about her adventures - and play with her in our dreams. *Sigh!*
Max - We feel a bond with Sasha! She's only four days younger than us and she joined her new family at roughly the same time that we joined ours so she's been going through the pain of training her human at the same time as us. Her blog is wonderful and her tweets (twoofs!) always make us giggle. She's simply wonderful .... *Sigh!*
JD - Yes - wonderful! *Sigh!*
Max - We have sent each of these three 'fists' a little goodie bag as a thank you - we had hoped they would get it around the same time as this post, but we have a feeling it hasn't arrived with anyone yet!
JD - Sasha explained to us that parcels delivered via surface mail are carried on the back of fishes - she is everso clever, she knows everything!
Max - So we're afraid you might have a bit of a wait - but we really hope your goodies turn up soon!
JD - Before we leave - as female human has some celebrating of her own to do, what with this being the exact date one year ago that she left London and the rat race behind and changed her life for the better by working locally and getting us - can we just say THANKS EVERYONE!
Max - Yup - we love blogging! We've made some great friends and we've enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you for continuing to visit our blog and for continuing to humour us our thoughts and ideas.
JD - Please leave a comment here - and sign our guest book, even if you already have signed it before now, he he he! We want to be able to send oodles of money to Dogs Trust!
Max - Have a nice weekend everyone....
JD - .... and thank you for stopping by!!
Join in the fun at Pet Pride....
