Happy Birthday, Jaffa!

Our buddy, Jaffa is 2 years old today! He and Mitch are only days apart in age! This picture is Jaffa on his first birthday! We sure do miss you LOTS, buddy! We hope you and Sunshade are sharing a fabulous birthday cake together for your special day!Today is also Jaffa's littermate, Stella's birthday! We hope you're included in that birthday pawty at Jaffa's house, Princess Stella! Happy birthday to you too!Our friend, Bogie has extended his Be My Baby Mama contest to the end of November! This past weekend, Mitch and I put our heads together and got out our crayons to try to create the best personal ad for Bogie to use to find the perfect LadyDale to raise his cutest ever furbabies! The prize is a book called, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Loving Our Dogs!

What do you think about this idea, Maggie? Do you think it'll work?! That's a GREAT idea, Mitch!I think I'm thinking too hard, Maggie! I need a break!
We are happy to report that we are 99% done with our personal ad, so expect our entry soon, Bogie!

So everybody, put on your thinking caps and email your personal ad artwork to Bogie and one of us will be winning one of those awesome books! Everyone who is a member of DWB is eligible to enter!

We were at Snowball's blog a couple of days ago and guess what her very talented Jie Jie painted? Us! Is this too cool or what! We are so honored, Snowball! Thank you very, very much! This masterpiece is proudly displayed on our sidebar so we can see it every single day! So until next time..................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

We are back! woofyyy!! we missed you M&Ms!!!

wow.. looks like a lot has been going on lately.. a contest for Bogie, eh... hmm.. we'll put on our thinking cap for that one for sure.

btw, manang read the 2 chicken soups already and she was leaking all over the place.. she wasn't able to get her grubby paws in this one though, so im sure she'll be inspired.

Good luck to Bogie!

Woof Maggie and Mitch,

Or should we say M&M? Anyway, that is a wonderful painting of you two. It really brings out your inner dog. You pups are always up to something special aren't you. That's why we just love your blog.

Hero said...

That's a beautiful painting of the both of you! I can't think of anyone who could serve as better models!

Georgeous said...

What a lovely painting! Is it on fabric?
Talking of art, I see your artistes yourselves, perhaps it's a Dale thing as I see Faya has been drawing too. I've never tried drawing, I'm sure Sophie would eat the crayons.
Love George
