Mickey and Kayah here

We had an awesome adventure this past weekend!

One of our fellow shelter pups, Star, had a birthday so the shelter threw her a luau party. Star turned 16 and is still available for adoption. She's a sweetie!

Star, the birthday girl

Being foster dogs we were invited to the party so we could maybe meet some nice family to take us home.

Mickey totally hammed it up, of course!

While Kayah was a bit nervous

It was lots of fun! We got to meet lots of nice people and eat some good treats. There was free hamburgers and hot dogs for the humans!

Well we didn't meet any families who wanted to take us home but that's ok cause we like it here! Although 6 dogs and 2 rats, yes rats, were adopted during Star's party!

Our new cousin, Rosalie

Well we got a new cousin a few weeks back. The Sister, our momma's sister, adopted a cute Pug/Chihuahua mix whose name is Rosalie! We waited and waited and finally Momma had The Sister and Rosalie over for lunch yesterday!

Isn't she cute???

Well Mickey kinda scared her at first. He is a very big pup! Then Droopy chased poor Rosalie and barked at her. Then everybody settled down and Rosalie and Kayah wound up playing!!

I gotta tell you a secret!

We were so happy to see Kayah play with Rosalie. Kayah has a tough time playing, mainly cause she can't see who she's playing with. Mickey tries to play with Kayah but he winds up bopping her too hard and she gets all upset!

Finally a group picture!

We had a lovely afternoon. We hope Rosalie will come visit us again soon!!!!!

Sniff ya later,

P.S. Mickey is done his heartworm treatment and can officially be adopted!!!!! Hurray!!!!

Bath Time for a Good Cause

Let's start with the back story before we blog about our adventure.


The CheeseHounds have a friend at momma's work named Mille. She is a very sweet chocolate labrador who has a very rare form of cancer sickies. It's got a really long crazy name that we can't remember. Millie is one of between 8 and 12 doggies in the US with this type of cancer sickies. Millie's momma had a Hot Dawg Wash to help raise kibble monies for Millie's chemo treatments! And of course the CheeseHounds attended!

Now our adventure begins:

Momma had told us about the Hot Dawg Wash and so Saturday morning Mickey and Droopy were loaded into the car. Side note: Smiley had gone to work with momma the two days before and was basically a basset shaped lump on the sofa. Kayah does not like new places and hates baths so she was not a good choice for this adventure.

Droopy got her bath first

One clean but pissed off Droopy basset hound

I don't want to be clean!!!!!!!

Mickey even attempted an escape

While Mickey was getting his bath, Droopy had her own personal human hand-toweling her off. She was a very happy basset hound.

Action shot!!!!!!

Once we were done Momma talked, ate a gourmet hot dog, shared some bits of hot dog with us, and did a bunch of boring human stuff! Then it was time to go home.

We didn't even make it home before we had to nap from all the excitement!

Want to know why Smiley was so tired????

Well she has a boyfriend at Momma's work!!
His name is Corbin! Isn't he cute???

Sniff ya later,

We want to play the nickname game. We're gonna tell you our funny nicknames and you tell us yours and why your human calls you that!

Any explanation needed?!?!

Kayah a.k.a. Kayah Papaya
Not much else rhymes with Kayah.

Mickey a.k.a. Mr Mickey
As the only gentleman of the dog variety in the house it's up to Mickey to remain dignified.

And last but not least our dear Callie girl
