One Year Together

Hey All

As many of you know by now on September 23rd mark me and momma's one year anniversary.  Yesterday I said I was going to put together a video of that year.  At first momma was working on a video of that year and all the great times I have had.  But that was proving to be rather lengthy (she has taken like 87,000 photos of me.  I have done so many things with my momma and most of those photos were just of me.  So I said to momma that we should put together a video of photos that had both of us in them.  After all it is OUR anniversary, together.  Hope you enjoy our little video.

I have had the best year ever!!  I love my momma and our life together and I know it's only going to get better and better.


Dogiversary Hike

Hey All

On September 23rd marked the one year dogiversary for me and my momma.  On that day one year ago I met my momma for the very first time and we became a family.  Our plan for this weekend was to go backpacking and camping to celebrate.  But....

It was a WILD weather weekend in my neck of the woods.  We had thunder, lightning, wind, rain, hail, snow AND we even had a tornado that touched down about 2 miles from where we live!!!  So we decided to postpone our trip.  But on Saturday morning we woke up early and decided we would take a hike.  The photo above is what the mountains looked like when we headed out.  Sure it looked like it was going to be a wet one, but we just wanted to get out.

And it was a bit wet, but it sure was beautiful.

We took a route along one of momma's favorite trials.  The beautiful was overwhelming despite momma's camera deciding to not work properly.  It would only take a picture every once in a while.

But I told momma that it didn't matter as long as we were together. 

She agreed and we hiked on taking in all the beautiful around us.

We watched fishes swimming in pools of water along the river. 

Momma tried to take pictures of the wildlife we encountered, a moose, deer, rabbits, squirrels, but like I said the camera was not cooperating.  This was suppose to be a shot of the moose. 

We had a wonderful time.
Tomorrow I hope to show you a year in the life of me and my momma.

All in a Days Shoot

Hey All.

As promised her is the low down on what when down on my photo shoot.  First of all let me tell you how I got to do a photo shoot.  Several weeks ago I told momma to use some of my treat money to make a donation to Utah Faces.  They help animals.   So we did and everyone who made a donation got their name put into a drawing for a great gift basket and a photo shoot.

Look who won!!!  Me!  There is so much good stuff in this here gift basket, all kinds of things.  Woo Hoo.  plus lets not forget I also get a photo shoot.  And guess what?? 

My friend the amazing Dr. Liz is the photographer!!

It was a perfect day for a fall photo shoot.

Sky was blue and the autumn leaves were full of all beauty and splendor.

This time of year I am almost camouflaged in the foliage.

Of course I had my best pal Bert with me.  Oh dog we were having the best time, even though I had to stop every 87 seconds to have Dr. Liz take photos of me.

As you can see I am not a professional poser like my pal Bert.  Then it happened....  Bert and I had raced down a deer trail.  After a few moments I sensed danger just off the trail. 

It was a black and white Kitty.  Oh wait that's not a Kitty Kat, and my pal Bert was headed right for it and he didn't even know it!!  So I ran as fast as I could and pushed Bert out of the way.  But in the process I got hit in the face and mouth by the stinky Kitty.

Dr. Liz captured the moment I returned to my momma's call all smelly.  I was jumping on her with excitement to tell her what had happened. 

I smelled so bad even my pal Bert could almost not bear it.  It was at this point that my momma's camera for some reason stopped working.  (So most of these photos after the skunk picture are what Bert's Vickie took, and a couple that Dr. Liz took).  So what else could go wrong, right?  Well.....

As we were headed to the next spot, me and Bert riding with Miss Vickie and my momma and Dr. Liz following behind us.  Momma and Dr. Liz had to stop for a moment (momma says it's not polite to say why, hehehhhe).  When they caught back up to us and pulled along side of us, I stepped on Miss Vickie's lap to say hello to my momma.  Then my momma said, "Is that blood on my boys chin?"  Miss Vickie checked and sure enough my chin was bleeding.  Then Miss Vickie said, 'Oh that must have happened when he fell out of the truck" (I was riding in the cab NOT in the bed of the truck).  I did not exactly "fall" out of the truck.  Seems that the smell was so bad that Bert swung his big fluffy butt around to get his snooter out of my smelly face and his fluffy butt bumped me right out the window.  But would this stop us....NOOOOOOOO Way!  We continued on.  I didn't think it was such a big deal and on the plus side the girls at Bert's place seem to like a doggie with scuffed up chin.  They think I got it protecting Bert from a vicious giant skunk-bear.  Hehehhehhe

We stopped at Gooses Rock to take photos.

And Bert and I had a diving contest.

He won biggest splash.

On this photo shoot I have my own Pit Crew.

I love love my momma.  Even though I was a stinky mess she still had treats for me.

Momma did not mind me swimming so much, something about I needed a bath anyway.  So she kept throwing rocks and sticks in the water for me.

From how dirty Bert is in this photo you would think he would be the stinky one. 

We had a great time despite the skunk, the broken camera, and the death defying fall from the truck.  It was a BLAST!!  Life is what you make it, you can go home early sulking in the stench of the day, or you can keep moving onward to make beautiful memories.  Oh and see that collar I am wearing?  Dr. Liz's friend made this collar just for me!  She saw photos of me and matched the fabric of the collar to match my furs.

Walkin on Water

Hey All

Thank you to Dr. Liz for this super cool photo of me walkin on water.
On Friday we took Dr. Liz to Gooses Rock for a photo shoot.  I made a donation to Faces of Utah (a group that helps doggies).  Every pup that made a donation was put in a drawing for a super cool gift basket and a photo shoot with Dr. Liz.  And I WON!!

Of course my best pal Bert came along.
Speaking of Bert there were a few things that happened on this photo shoot adventure.  It involves me, Bert, a skunk and death defying plunge.  Stay tuned and I will tell ya all about it.

See Beautiful

Hey All.

Know what time it is?????  THIS MOMENT SEE BEAUTIFUL time!!!!!!!! Really every month, every day, every moment is See Beautiful time.  Want to see to moment I started to See Beautiful?  And the moment my momma said she started to See even more Beautiful?

This is the moment my momma started to see even more beautiful.  Miss Lydia sent this photo of me to my momma, it is the first photo my momma ever saw of me.  At that moment she fell head over heals in love with me.  At that moment I did not even know who momma was.

This is "See Beautiful" herself, Miss Lydia, founder of See Beautiful.  You see Miss Lydia found me roaming the streets of Atlanta.  She reached out and put my paw in her hand and I started my journey to seeing beautiful.  I love you Aunt Lydia and a little piece of my heart will always belong to you.

This is the plane that flew my momma to Atlanta so we could be a family.  Pilot Charlie offered to take my momma there, no charge, just wanted to help us be together.  That is beautiful indeed.

This is Bullseye Rescue where Aunt Lydia took me after she found me.  They took real good care of me, I mean REAL GOOD.  And they took a chance on my momma, a woman all the way across the United States they had not even met.  Aunt Lydia told them all about my momma and my Angle Brother, Goose.  And so they decided me and momma should be a family.  THANK YOU Carla and Ellie for caring for and about me AND caring for and about all my Fat Head brothers and sisters who are in need of forever homes with a loving family.  Forever and always you will have a special place in my Pittie heart.

This is the first day I met my momma and we became a family.  It was love at first sight.

This is me and momma signing our adoption papers. 

And this is me and momma every single night after we got home, my forever and ever home.
Why the See Beautiful memories you ask?  Well my friends this month is my Gottcha Month.  Momma and I have been a family for almost one year!!!!!!  And you know what?  Each day gets more and more beautiful.  It has been a beautiful journey, from someone caring enough to stop to see if I was OK, to taking me to the best rescue in the world for Pit Bulls, who then took a chance on a long distance adoption, to a man my momma never met before who flew her across the country.......  WOW the beautiful just never stopped and it still hasn't.  Beautiful is out there my friends, and BEAUTIFUL is in each and everyone of you.... See it, Share it, Create it, Be it!!

Beautiful Blessings,

Hey All.

Over the weekend momma and I had some yard work to do.  You know the usual, mow, trim, weeds, compost, stuff like that.  It was good hard work.

I don't know about your house, but in my house after a hard days work we like to kick back, relax and enjoy a treat (sometimes the treat is also enjoyed while working).  Momma decided on a Mike's beverage and gave me my own Doggie Beer.

"Hummmmm, wait a minute, what is this you're having momma?" {sniff, sniff}

"Let me just sample yours."

"Yea I better make sure this is OK for you to have momma.  I sure would not want you to get sick or anything."
"Bud I am sure it is just fine.  You just stick to your Beefy Barley Beer."
"No, no.  I must be sure you'll be happy with your choice."

"Oooops.  Yea it's just fine.  That one is yours."

"I'll just stick with my doggie beer.  Oh and don't sit in that spot.  Just sayin', don't want ya to get a wet butt."
