I just found out about this awesome piece that an artist named Christine Head did of me. I feel so special and loved! My foster dad says that it captures my sparkly eyes and slight smirk perfectly. I am wiggly but I was a little bit embarrassed to be known for my snoring (even if it is true). :P But I guess if no one else minds it why should I? :) Thank you, Christine! I love it!
You can check out this sketch and a bunch of Christine's other work here--including a cool piece of one of my best buddies, Jonny:

BIG THANKS to all the imaginative folks that commented. It really was great fun.
In all honesty, this was hard ! There were way too many great comments, so I had to ask for help from other blog writers. The consensus of the authors was that this comment, as it was said to me, "shows a total lack of good judgement in the name of fun." Winner !
I can't list them all but here are a few of our favorites :
" It's so embarrassing when he picks me up by the handle."
"Timmy's in trouble!! " ( think Lassie )
" RUN.....I HEAR BANJOS!! " ( poor taste..but funny )
"You know...This is only happening because you're holding that dog treat..."
" Next on "Pitwatch!" Johnny saves Pamela from a giant catfish "
" I need a word with my stylist.... "
Thanks again for playing along. You guys are the best !

What could Jonny be thinking?
As we close out the season of warm weather fun, I thought all you folks in internet-land might like to have one last a bit of summer fun with Jonny.
Have fun, be creative, but mostly, try and think like Jonny.
Next week , we will fill in the bubble with the best caption.
Thanks for reading our blog -

Have a good weekend everybody !

- They will take the yummy bone that you so skillfully "borrowed" away from you and they will give it back to your sister.
- When they come home and find you out of your crate they will stop saying "How did you get out? I thought I latched it all the way!" and they will start putting carabiners on the crate door. I haven't figured out how to open a carabiner yet, but I am working on it.
- They will do mean things, like put your favorite toy inside the crate and tell you to open the crate and get it. Then they will point the camera at you to make a movie. I am refusing to comply with this ridiculous demand.

Hi Everyone, it's me, Grace. Last week I got to hang out with my old friends Lily and Jonny Justice.
We rode in the truck for a while and ended up where there are lots of trees and flowers.
There was a there creek too. Iv'e never been swiming before. I wonder if I will like it ?
I'm not too sure how to swim , so I just walked in for a while. Not so bad on a hot day.
It was nice to lay in the sun afterwards.
Then I got up and sniffed a TON of stuff with Jonny. We sniffed for hours.
Then I smelled it. YES !!!! BBQ !!!
Ok, well maybe sleeping in the dirt isn't so bad.
And that is what I did on my Summer vacation.

I overhead her reading last week that PETA claims we former Michael Vick dogs are all dead, or if not dead, then homeless. Did PETA make this assumption just because I haven’t posted here in awhile? Well, here I am. I’m alive, happy, and busy. I’ve got more hobbies than most kids.
And I’m not homeless either. My life is full and my adoptive family adores me. I live in the house with them, I eat well, I go on lots of outings, I know all of my neighbors, I practice my stuff (I’m a performance dog in training), I play hard, and I get my much deserved beauty rest. This month marks the one year anniversary that my orthopedic surgeon gave me the go-ahead to start agility classes. I’m now quite competent on the teeter, I can make crazy entries into the poles, I jump with the grace of a pig-shaped gazelle, and I get happily sucked into agility tunnels.
When I’m not doing all that, I’m vacationing with my family and my buddy Aldo on the coast. I’m thriving and I’m happy. PETA, I’m most definitely not dead.
p.s. oh PETA, you are right about one thing though. I don’t get handouts from under the dinner table. I wish I did.

Or at least dats what my mum calls me! I've pretty much forgotten how scary my life used to be when me and some of my friends lived at dat "mean guys" place. Now, I get to go for walks, play with my sister and brother, and even go on play-dates with other furry-friends. But bestest of all, I get to sleep under da covers with my mum! Oh yeah, and dats when she calls me her "snuggle-bunny"! Geeze, I always tawght I was just a plain ol' Pit Bull. Who knew I would become all those other tings?! A wee friend came to stay with me for a wittle bit, so I tried calling her "my snuggle bunny". Nope, Nope, snuggle-bunny she was not! She always chased after me and tried to bite my butt! So I named her "Dehlila da Piraña".

Me and my person go to this big store sometimes where they have lawn mowers and toilets and big pieces of wood and garbage cans and rugs and light bulbs and so many cool things. It's full of so much stuff to sniff and I love it there. Sometimes when I go inside the people who work there all yell my name, "Jhumpa", and my tail wags sooo fast.
Love, Jhumpa Jones
Do you read ???
A lot of people I meet like to read.
I don't read too much myself, but I sure like when people read to me.
Oh' and I like to look at the pictures too, even upside down.
So if you like to read too, or just want to say "Hi" come by and visit. We hang out at the Brisbane Library. But be careful, you could catch what my dad says is a reading bug. I hope I don't get it.

A couple of weeks ago, I moved into a new foster home. When I got there, I was greeted by my new roomie Gulliver. At first, I was like, "Yikes! This guy is almost twice as big as me!" He would follow me around and sniff me and try to play. But, being new and all, I was a little bit shy. I still get shy sometimes but my tail is wagging non-stop and I'm slowly getting used to playing with such a big guy. Sometimes, my new foster parents think that I'm the bigger dog. My bark can make me sound pretty big and I even snore louder than Gulliver! I found out that this Gulliver guy isn't so bad after all. He even shares his bed and toys with me! One time, I sat on his face while he was lying down, and he didn't even care! I guess he knows who the queen is around this joint. Sharing a bed with someone like Gulliver is nice on cold winter nights. Good thing my snoring doesn't wake him up!

A bit short of a year ago, I started an agility foundation class. One of the first things we learned was a 2o2o. That means I plant two feet on the equipment and two feet off when I reach the end of the equipment. It’s a safety thing she says so I don’t go leaping off the agility contact equipment and go hurting myself. Here I am all those months ago learning a 2o2o on a beginner’s practice board . But, let me find her camera and then check back in a few days. I’ll show you the end result on a “real” agility teeter. I’ve learned a lot in the past few months, I’m having fun in my new life, and my new bionic knees are hanging in there just fine!

I had a turkey neck for dinner last night. Turkey necks are my number one favorite dinner ever. My mom holds them for me so I can chew them up well and really savor the yumminess.

But sometimes I like to be naughty. When I'm naughty I enjoy things like putting my paws on the kitchen counter to see the food, or jumping on and off my people's bed while my mom is making it, or not paying attention in class, or pulling things from outside my crate in to my crate.
