I’m 8 Months Old Today!

What a great day it is today!  It started off with Mommy and I waving goodbye to Daddy when he left for work, and I have been glued to the front window (now that we can open our windows with a little warmer weather) watching the birdies frolic in the front yard, all the people driving by in their cars, and I have also been watching my favorite ladies across the street in the medical building.  I saw Maggie open the door because she must have seen me watching out the window and she said “Hi Nikita“, and when I heard her, I got all excited and jumped around and wagged my tail.  (Gosh I love those ladies Maggie & Lisa as they are so nice to me and give me lots of hugs when I go visit) 

Mommy also thought that for my 8 month anniversary, that she would try to put on my Halloween tutu for a photo op, but we found out that my tutu that once fit around my waist at Halloween, now only fits around my neck!  WOW, I must be getting older for that to happen!  LOL 

Gotta love my floofy hair!

I also wanted to thank everyone who has donated to the DOGGIE DOLLARS & KITTY KASH!  THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!  Now don’t forget to keep that receipt for your taxes because your donation is tax deductible!   A great big THANK YOU goes out to Angie from Thoughts Appear Blog for her donation today!  Woof woof!

Daddy and Mommy have been busy placing their huge Halloween order for their website www.themesnthings.com and they can’t wait for the awesome & gruesome Halloween order to arrive.  I am not, however, going to be happy when this order arrives because all of this Halloween stuff really scares me!  I will have to hide somewhere when they take all of the items out of the box – boooooooo!  Check out their site and watch for all the new arrivals for the witching hour! 

Mommy and I are going to work out in the yard a little today since it is so nice outside.  It is so strange that about a week ago, I was standing in snow really high, and now I can see the green grass and feel warmth on my face.  Boy oh boy, I can’t wait for all the walks that Daddy and Mommy are going to take me on!  Yeah! 

I hope that everyone enjoys their day, and gets lots of treats like I do!  Don’t forget to donate today:  http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/themesnthings/2011-doggy-dollars-kitty-kash

Warm sunshine kisses to you,
Nikita

When a Blogger Becomes a Friend

I love Angie from Thoughts Appear Blog

It is so great when one of my fellow bloggers became my friend!  Angie from Thoughts Appear Blog sent me this great card to thank me for the Christmas present I sent her.  I went shopping with Mommy and picked out this really super neat thing called an “Internet Journal” that I thought Angie could use.  It has tons of pages from A to Z where you can list all of your internet websites you visit along with spaces for your usernames & passwords.  I also wrapped up two little mice for Angie’s cat Esme, could not forget my fellow furry friend too!  Thanks so much Angie for the great card, it made my day! 

Esme

I also wanted to give a great big puppy shout out to Tille from Brecksville who sent me an email to let me know that she loved my blog.  She found out all about me through the APL’s newsletter “Pet Patter“. (I’m on Page 9)  Thanks Tillie and I hope you keep following me & watch me grow up!  (tell your friends all about me too!) 

Mommy spent some time yesterday fixing all of my stuffed toys that were in what she calls the “Pet Hospital“.  I play really hard some times as a puppy and some times accidentally rip an ear off of my hedgehog, or tear open the neck on my teddy bear, or even figure out how to open up my stuffed candy cane and remove the squeaker, but thanks to Mommy & knowing how to sew, she can fix anything and I’ve got all my toys back!  Yeah!  My toy chest is overflowing now…

Waiting for Breakfast - I'm still sleepy

Gotta go for now, I hear Mommy calling me for breakfast!  Woof!

Furry & Non-Furry Friends

Me in an Old Navy Sweatshirt

Well, it’s almost New Years, and although I have just been around this great world since July, I have made many many friends!  One of my favorite friends is Angie from Thought’s Appear Blog – she’s the one I told you all about that she loves Pop Tarts but hates camping & also gave me an award for being the cutest puppy, then all of my friends at the Cleveland APL that include “Uncle Dave”, Judy, Molly, Bree, Lisa, & many others, and all of my best buds at PetSmart  like Brett & Jane who always have hugs & treats waiting for me!  (Sometimes I feel like I am the PetSmart “Greeter” when I arrive)  I also want to thank the two nice ladies in the Medical Building across the street from me for all of their love & treats that they have given me in these past months, as they watched me grow up from a little fuzz ball to the great bigger puppy I am now – I love you guys!  And, I don’t want to forget the most important people…my Daddy & Mommy who always take such good care of me, wipe my paws when I come in from outside, spend time with me, give me lots of hugs & smoochies, and make sure my belly is full with good food, and always have time to play with me. 

Happy New Year!

 

I just want to thank all of you for your love, toys, & treats and for always keeping up with my blog & what I am doing.  I also want you to know that I will be announcing sometime in the New Year a new line of “Nikita Gear” and for every item purchased, I will donate a portion of the sales to the APL.  Just my little way to “Pay it Forward” and say thanks for all that they have done for me.  So, keep watching my blog to see what neat items I will have in the new year! 

Ozzy from the APL

P.S. – I also want to thank Ozzy & Kobe for writing about me in their “Cat’s Eye View – Notes from the APL“.  Although I did not get the chance to meet them on my visit to the APL, I hope that I will get to see them on my next trip.  Thanks Ozzy & Kobe & keep up the good work!
