The Anticipation is killing me…

I feel the pressure building inside me, my thoughts are racing around in my puppy head, I stare blindly across the kitchen floor…thinking (oooh wait, is that a crumb on the floor?) anyhow, my mind has been pre-occupied all day wondering WHO was going to win American Idol tonight.  Our first thought after Haley Reinhart was booted (ha ha) was to vote for Scotty, but after the performances we saw last night, our votes might now be swayed over to Lauren.  I think she is “IN IT TO WIN IT” as Randy Jackson always says!  Lauren had such a better night of song choices than Scotty, but who knows… Scotty could still win it.  Unfortunately, we will have to wait the entire 2 hour show to find out who wins the whole kit-and-kaboodle Idol crown!  Just a few more hours until we find out….stay tuned!

You know how much my Daddy & Mommy love Halloween, right?  Well, I must know that it is just around the corner, because all that I have been doing lately is playing with my stuffed pumpkin.  This squeaky toy is so huge, but I love it.  I just grab that huge thing and bite real hard and shake the daylights out of it.  Don’t know what I am trying to accomplish, but it is fun!  (this photo Mommy snapped of me really shows off my fluffy tail, eh?)  Anyhow, if anyone wants to check out some really cool Halloween props & accessories, you should pop on over to see my Daddy & Mommy’s website, Themes N Things www.themesnthings.com   They have a lot of seasonal items (just not Halloween) and have a huge inventory of more Halloween props that will be arriving soon, so check back often to see what’s new!

I hope you are having a great day so far…I am going to take a nap so I can stay up for Idol tonight.  I hope America voted correctly…we’ll have to wait & see for ourselves.

Yee-Haw from Nikita Idol!

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 www.themesnthings.com 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!

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,

Goofing Around

Goofing Around

You just gotta love the holidays!  The wrapping paper, the bows, the ornaments, and the …. BOXES!  I crawled into this one after Daddy received his Black Friday deals from JCPenney!  I fit perfectly in here, I even brought with me my little snowman toy, but you can’t see him because I am sitting on him.  Of course, Mommy had to run and get her camera to take some more pictures of me because I am so photogenic!  LOL 

Get the wrapping paper & ribbon!

I was also sniffing around the Christmas tree and I smell “TREATS” somewhere under that tree!  Mommy caught me though, and chased me away, rats.  When do I get these?  Why do I have to wait?  Why are they wrapped up in shiny paper?  I don’t need shiny paper or a bow on my treats – I just need them in my belly!  Grrr, gotta have those treats!

Taking a little rest from playing

It is snowing again today and the ground is getting all covered with that white stuff that I love to eat!  Mommy keeps reminding me when we are outside to not eat the yellow snow though. 

I also wanted to remind all of you to visit my Daddy & Mommy’s website and check out the neat Pet Accessories they have.  For every purchase from their website under the Pet Accessories category, they are going to donate a portion of the proceeds to the Cleveland APL and help give back to them for taking such good care of me before I was adopted.  I am also working on my own line of products too, like Nikitaland Tote Bags, key chains, and more to help raise some money for the APL.  I will make an announcement on my blog when my items will be available.  Every little bit helps and I am trying to do my part and help raise money to donate to the APL and thank them for all of their efforts! 

Have a great snow day & stay warm!
Hugs & wet puppy kisses to you – Nikita

Snoozing the Morning Away

Snuggle Time

It’s Friday morning, TGIF, and I am relaxing under my favorite blankie just snoozing the morning away!  I know that I need to go outside, but it’s pouring rain and I hate that wet stuff, so I’ll just lay here all warm and cozy under my blankie while Mommy works on the website.  (www.themesnthings.com)  Daddy & Mommy have their own website & eBay store with all kinds of unique Seasonal items to decorate your home for the holidays.  So, while Mommy is busy, I’ll just stay here under my blankie all warm & cozy until I have to go outside! 

Have a great day & TGIF!
Until tomorrow,
Nikita
