Dogs On Thursday

Be tuff! The "dog days" of summer can be wuff!

Welcome to this weeks edition of Dogs on Thursday.
Where friends and family are welcome but fleas are not.
We are praying and hoping that those hit by the recent storms in Florida and along the east and gulf coast there and around the vicinity of the hurricane/ tropical storm Fay survived and are well.
Please check in and let us know you are okay, that is quite a nasty storm out there.

We have two new members this week. Everyone please go and bark a hello to Peggy and Serendipity.

For those that are in the Dogs Days of Summer Secret Swap.

The last day of the swap is next Thursday the 28th.
If you are running late getting your packages out please contact your pal and let them know or contact me and I will let them know.
Also if you are having trouble completing your commitment please email me or Natalie for help.

Don't forget that the DoT Bloggerverary Contest is still running until the 10th of September so there is still plenty of time to get creative in finding a way to make a representation your dog(s).

We are going to have a new feature on DoT.
Nichole has very kindly agreed to keep up the good work reviewing things pertaining to dogs and when she does a review of a dog related item we will post a link to it here.
Like we did last week when she did a great review of the Rachel Rays dog food.
I have put up a spot on the side bar that has a link to that post and some other wonderful ones she has done.
So if you are wondering about a dog product, like I was last week, then check the side bar or with Nichole as chances are she has tried it out or did research on that product.
Thanks Nichole!

Also if anyone else has done a review of a pet product that they would to share please email me or Natalie and we will add it to the side bar.

Since I don't have a Doggie Spotlight for today I am going to introduce you to another dog that my family and I met on our trip to England this past May.
While visiting the historical town of Battle (where the battlefield to the famous battle of Hastings was fought.)
We met this sweet little dog named Roscoe he is a 5 year old West Highland Terrier.
(with apologies to Roscoe's human and my family for letting me use them as DoT fodder.)
Roscoe and his human, along with my husband, Sister-in-Law and Father-in-Law took
the 5 mile walking tour around and throughout the historical sites and onto the famous battlefield.
I and my Mother-in-Law and other Sister-in-Law took the short 2 mile walking tour.
and met up with Roscoe and his newly formed fan club at the end of the trail for a much needed rest in a cool spot in the shade.
I don't know how impressed he was with the walking history lesson but were sure impressed how he walked 5 miles without compliant.

I hope everyone has a great weekend and stays cool!

Roscoe is quite lovely! What a nice little tour guide...

Nichole said...

Roscoe is a cutie!

Marjie said...

Dogs never complain about the walking, do they? I notice he didn't say much, but let his human do the talking!

What a sweet dog!

Tina in Wonderland said...

Roscoe is cute! Does he get doggie treats as tips? LOL
That sounds like a cool vacation!

Westies are such nice dogs. We may eventually own one when we are too old to keep up with Jack Russells.

Still love the scenery of your trip and what a great tour dog! Roscoe sure is a cute one!

Peggy said...

Roscoe has much more energy than we humans...he's precious! Beautiful photos of your trip and walk. No dog complains if they are given the chance to walk or run especially in a beautiful wooded area! I don't know how he stays so clean! Thanks for sharing!

Peggy said...

Ohhh...I forgot to inclue this.:(
I'm SO SORRY that I was not up and posted yesterday but as you can see I did link up LATE today :)

Peggy said...

Me bothering Everyone again...I tried to visit everyone to get to know you I started in the beginning, then I went backwards from my name and somewhere in the middle I missed some...leaving a comment, getting to know you and your best friend(s). Please forgive me if I missed you because I'm not sure now who or how many I missed...but I was hurrying late at night and my DOT shows all names highlighted so BIG HUG to all, especially if I missed you and thanks for the welcome! Hope to remember next week and be on time or maybe ahead of time!
ENJOY A GREAT WEEKEND of fun or rest!
