Wordless Wednesday - Happy Doggie

Purina Pet Gear

Our friends at Purina have released a new line of pet products: Purina Pet Gear.  With Purina being a favorite brand at the Love Shack Pack, we were delighted to receive a few of the products to review.

Purina sent us a goodie box that contained:
1.  Ultra dry training pads.
2.  Carpet and Upholstery pet stain and odor eliminator.
3.  Giant pet hair roller.

We always keep a supply of 'piddle pads' on hand as Ohno and Joy are prone to accidents when left unattended for too long.  We really like the Purina training pads because of their super duper absorbency.  The size of the pad is 'paw'fect to accommodate the doggie doodies....arg, I mean DUTIES.

The Carpet & Upholstery spray also proved to be pure, Purina quality.   It easily and efficiently cleans a mess and leaves behind a clean, fresh smell.  We've found it useful for dog accidents as well as general messes made by the little humans.
Perhaps our favorite product included was the Purina Giant Fur Remover.  For a …

Boon's Sunday Sermon #2

Keeping it simple today, furiends.  We hope you enjoy this song as much as we do.  It has become our anthem.

Have a blessed week!

We wuf y'all!

News Worth Sniffing

My mom is news obsessed.  It might be that she majored in journalism in college and those 'hound-sniffing' days never completely passed her.  Whatever the case, she always loves, loves, loves reading real life stories of animals from every day life.  Today we wanted to share some of the stories we've read this week that are worth the time to sniff out and enjoy. 

First up - The story of the Georgia pooch, Honey Bun, that ate $10,000 worth of diamonds at her owner's jewelry store. 

This is what I'm saying about it:  If dog's are man's best friend and diamonds are a girl's best friend, then isn't Honey Bun a pooch everyone can agree on??  You can read more about that story here.
Did you know that zoo animals predicted the earthquake in Washington earlier this week?  Some began acting irritated and retreating to higher ground some fifteen minutes before the earth shook.  What do they know that those humans don't?  You can read the full report on Fox…

Word(less) Wednesday - RAIN!!

We had a 15 minute rain shower here the other day.  Rain has been a scarce commodity around these parts this year.  We dogs hardly knew what to think.  Neither did the two legged kids. 
We did learn though that Rain + Dry Ground = MUD!!! 

 Oh, and mom says I have to tell you that our yard is mostly grass.  This is just the area we keep dug up - so we can have MUD!!!!

A Little Bit of This and A Little Bit of That

Wowsers!  Things sure have been busy around The Love Shack lately - mostly cause the human kids started back to school.  Only they don't "go" to school.  They do school here at home at The Love Shack.  Mom and Dad are their teachers but sometimes we doggies help out too. 

Next week Scarlet gets to go to the big school up the road for the kids to read to her.  She's so lucky.  I can't wait to take my TDI test where I can go all the time too.  Mom was real excited when a package arrived from Oliver, Tanner, and Carrie at All Things Dog Blog.  It's just what we needed for our homeschool and for the Tail Waggin' Tutors program.  Thanks, y'all!!!

We've also been award two more blog awards.  Bert gifted us with the Irresistibly Sweet award several weeks ago.  (My secretary has been reprimanded for waiting til now to post it.) 

Here are some rules n'stuff.

1. Thank and link back to the person who like gave you the award.

2. Share seven random facts ab…

Boon's Sunday Sermons - #1

So last night mom and I had a pow-wow.  We were considering the blog and the natural course it has taken.  We realized that we have been leaving a chief element of who we are out of The Love Shack Pack blog - our faith.

Now before you turn up your nose and high-tail it in the opposite direction, let me assure you that you are not going to be "preached at" here - rather encouraged and hopefully inspired.  We aren't here to judge you - just to share how the love of God has changed our lives for the better.

For today's first message, I'd like to share a piece Mom wrote many moons ago about a dog that she once had.  Enjoy and be blessed.

Living Loved

My little Cocker Spaniel, Bella Rose, was also scheduled to be spayed. This had been yet another cause of concern for me. Bella Rose is extremely afraid of people. Anyone who does not live in our house is a threat to her. I was worried about how she would react with me leaving her with strangers. I was worried about how …

Snuggle Buddies

More evidence of why EVERY boy needs a dog to call his own.

Four year old, Connor, and his best dog friend, The Great Kudzu.

Hope y'all are enjoying a nice, lazy Saturday with the ones who love you most!!

P.S.  Oh, and before we forget, please visit Sarge for the most recent news about the Labor Day weekend Back to School Bash.  And don't you forget to get those "PROM/PAWM" pics into us at .   Pawm picture can be as formal or informal as you choose.  Some are dressing to the nines while others are just wearing the furs God gave 'em.  It doesn't matter - as long as you're there!!!  AROOOOF!

Mom Learned a New Word

We've shared this Dean Koontz quote before, but it is good and true and deserves to be repeated.

"Golden retrievers are not bred to be guard dogs, and considering the size of their hearts and their irrepressible joy in life, they are less likely to bite than to bark, less likely to bark than to lick a hand in greeting. In spite of their size, they think they are lap dogs, and in spite of being dogs, they think they are also human, and nearly every human they meet is judged to have the potential to be a boon companion who might, at many moment, cry, "Let's go!" and lead them on a great adventure."

Most recently when Mom re-read this statement, a new word popped out. 


Hey, that's what she calls me!

Mom looked it up right away.

Wordless Wednesday - Purty in Pink

Lots of Exciting Things Going On!!

Dawgs, guess what!  The Love Shack Pack is today's featured guest at Coffee With A Canine.  Hop right on over to read never before shared, behind the scenes info about my family!  (But before you get too excited, finish reading this blog first.)

We are also very excited about Frankie Furter's Back to School Blogville Bash on Labor Day weekend.  We are even hosting a PAWM for the event.  No peeples allowed... this one is for the furry purr-suasion only.

Though I have never been to a PAWM before, I have many great ideas about the event.  I hope you all will participate.  We're going to let our fur down and have a good, ole time.

Here's what Frankie says about it:

"Dress fur this is... Formal or INformal... or... if you have been HATTED by Sammy Andy and Shelly... Those pics would be WONDERFUL.. If you don't like to wear clothes.. in the furs will be FINE too.. Just EVERYBUDDY plan to COME to the PAWm... "

Pawm will be held Saturday, September 3rd.  So get tho…
