Just wanted to let all my fans know I will be out and about this Sunday. Petco is sponsoring Breeds in Need this month so me and 2 other Weimie ambassadogs will be at the Petco in Clifton, NJ. I will be wearing the donation vest so if you are local, come on down an tuck a dollar in my pocket :-)
We'll be chillin' and chattin' with people making them aware of breed specific rescue. Also check out the info on Petco's website... it's interesting how breed rescues end up helping save 2 lives at once when they pull a purebred out of a shelter and make room for another adoptable doggy!
It's also TSWR's First Annual Borders Book Fund Raiser this weekend (October 1, 2, & 3rd). They have a voucher for instore purchases for NJ, PA and DE (Email Ma for a voucher to printout) and there's an online code for any web purchases. When ordering online use Coupon Code TWRE1013K.
Every sale adds up and the more sales this weekend with that code, the higher percentage Borders donates to Weim Rescue! More info about this fundraiser
Please help support Rescue Weims like Me and Blue this weekend.

As you can see, my friends, Grammy thinks I ate 4, but I also was getting bits of a FIFTH hotdog from our neighbor who came to the paw-ty too!
It was a BLAST! It was the Best. Dog Days. Ever. There were neighbors, puppies, prizes and there was even a wolf-hybrid! BUT, BEST OF ALL....THERE WERE HOT DOGS!!! In fact, I think they should call it HotDog Days next year!!
You all know how much I love them and how patiently I await eating them:
Well, I have to admit, Saturday I was a little piggy! BOL.
Before we left for the day, Ma only gave me half my food thinking I'd have a frank or 2 (or 3 or 4 or...) As soon as we pulled into the lot at IOC, I went crazy! I KNEW. I walked right into the pool and started splashing around and getting toys. I even was bringing them back to Da like a "real" fetching dog! Ma and Da said I was a VERY GOOD GIRL playing and swimming all day... they called me Esther Williams I was in the water so much!! BOL. I also was very good about sharing all the toys and gave them back to the doggies when I was asked to.
Our neighbors, Patty and Jim came, too, with Dakota and Skye, the Goldens. It was fun playing with them in the pool; usually D and I just race along the fence (I always beat him , though cause he's got a bum-hip!)
There was a homemade treat vendor there too and by the end of the day, Ma didnt win their raffle prize, so just helped myself to their treats! I think that was not a good idea though cause Ma got embarrassed...I did it while she was calling the raffle prize winners! (oopsie). Just before it was time to go home, the nice hot dog lady gave out FREE hotdogs to the doggies that were still swimming, so OF COURSE you know I had another one! I'm telling you, between Dog Days and the Rescue Picnic, IOC and TSWR really know how to throw a party!
When it was over, we packed up and headed home for our Annual Block Party...Ma got nervous we'd run out of food, so Grammy ran out and bought some... c'mon, guess... yep, HOT DOGS! We wound up not cooking them so there are 24 of my faves in the freezer!!! Da says I ate so many I dont get any now until 2011... so I wll be dreaming of them from now until New Year's Day!
Da took tons of photos, so enjoy the slideshow of Dog Days of September 2010:

Ma said something about boiling hotdogs this weekend? Is this some sort of sacrilege? I mean I will eat them cold, but boiling them? at HOME?? They might be close to a NYC pushcart dirty-water dog, but still...
I'll let you now how they turn out.
oh, btw on Monday Ma is in a cooking contest. I tried to give her a really good recipe for a gourmet hotdog, but she said it was a HEALTHY contest. Wish her luck...winner advances to finals in LA judged by Bobby FLay to win all new kitchen appliances! I wonder if that barking hotdog cooker is one of them??
ciao for now.
