Post Birthday Palooza

I am still trying to come down from my Birthday Palooza high and I wanted to share with you some of the great gifts I received.   Mommy made me this neat Leash Hook out of a scrap piece of pressed wood.  She designed the letter “N” on her computer first, cut it out of cardstock, then traced it onto a scrap piece of pressed wood that she had left over from all the wood tombstones she has been cutting.  She worked really hard on sanding the N and got it all nice and smooth, then she was ready to paint it black.  After the black dried, she sprayed a nice clear coat over the N to protect & seal it.  Then she added two adorable stainless steel hooks to the bottom of the N so we can hang my leash on it.  How do you think she did?  Pretty neat, eh? 

I also got my first Birthday Cake ever, thanks to Daddy, and it even had my name on it!  How cool is that?  Boy, does it look yummy! 

I also got a neat & very colorful new squeaky toy from my Auntie (I call it a Sunflower), and I got a new pink teddy bear from Grandma (she knows I love the color pink), and I got a new pink & blue squeaky cupcake from Daddy & Mommy.  

Grandma is on the phone..

Grandma even started off my day by calling me and singing happy birthday to me over the phone!  Aw, aren’t Grandma’s the best?!  Daddy also held my birthday cards from my Auntie and Grandma so I could read them.  All in all, I had a great birthday, but I still feel like a puppy, even though I am told I am not a puppy any longer.

My list continues of the things that I BARK at…. I saw this big huge blue circle walking down the street and had to bark at it.  This guy must be trying to beat the heat with this thing!  LOL  I hope he puts his swim trunks on first before jumping in! 

Have a great day & do your best to keep cool in this heat wave we’re having!  All the best, Nikita

Photograph Glass Blocks

Hey everyone, it’s me, Nikita!  Boy oh boy do I have some great news…. My Mommy has been busy working on bringing you something so awesome and unique, that I had to share it with you!  She has taken one of my photographs and actually made it into a glass block with lights!  She has turned an ordinary photograph into a “Work of Art“.    Daddy & Mommy are selling these now on their website at and you can read all about these new Photograph Lighted Glass Blocks and how you can get one too!  The great thing about these glass blocks is that it is NOT just for a Pet Lover, you can send Mommy your favorite photo and she’ll turn it into a lighted glass block.  You can use these glass blocks as a night light, a small light on the kitchen counter, bookshelf, mantel, or desk and your favorite photo will shine!  Great unique gift idea for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Anniversary, Graduation – the list is endless!

Let me know what you think of Mommy’s new Work of Art!  Order one today for yourself or a special gift for someone!

How Am I Doing?

It’s really amazing how time flies, and I can’t believe that March is almost over, but I heard that April brings showers and I don’t like rain much.  Every time I head outside when it’s raining, I run out quickly for some quick business, then back in before I get too wet.  Stepping in squishy grass is not for me. 

Anyhow, I have been blogging now since September 2010, have over 3,600 views and over 85+ posts and I have had so much fun sharing my life as a puppy with all of you!  I hope that I bring a smile to your face and you will continue to follow me as I grow up!  I always reflect back  and realize just how lucky I am.  I have a great home, a great Daddy & Mommy, always good & healthy food to eat, tons & tons of toys to play with, and all the love & hugs I want (not to mention all the puppy treats too!)  Not all puppies are this fortunate, but I am.  Anyhow, I wanted to check in with all of you, my faithful followers, and ask “How Am I Doing“?  What do you want to see more of on Nikitaland?  I don’t bite, so feel free to “bark” back at me! 

Have a great “Hump” Day!
Wet puppy kisses to you – Nikita
