Wags & Whiskers Wednesday (#2)

Yay!  You are halfway through your week!

This week, I have fallen in love with Twitter all over again.  I didn’t quite finish my holiday/end of year “to do” list by 2012…but in an attempt to not fall behind in the first month of the new year, I have slowly been crossing off last year’s tasks.  “Clean up Twitter Account” was one of those things left undone.  I started with the intention to weed out those annoying people who don’t ever post (how this is even possible is beyond me!) and make sure I was following all the people I should be.  What it turned into was hours and hours of finding new dog and cat lovers to connect with, new products to try, undiscovered websites, and dozens and dozens of TwitPics that people had posted of their sleeping dogs. (Is there anything better than a picture of an adorable sleeping dog?!?)  I highly recommend spending some time getting lost in Twitter.  (Oh, and be sure you are following us while you are wondering!)

But enough words….who wants to see some PICTURES??

Meet Suki! What a cutie...love the tongue flick! The picture of her (above and below) was sent to us by our new Twitter friend Helen (@TheAnimalNews) Make sure to hop over to her blog - http://animalnewsflash.blogspot.com/

Oh...and let's not forget Suki's brother Rusty!


How 'bout this sleepy head! Patrick sent us this picture of his puppy, Sherlock. What a face!

Is there anyone that we aren’t following on Twitter but should be?!  (That could include yourself!)  Tweet Tweet at us @WandWHouston.

Woo hoo Wednesday!

The past two weeks have been EXTREMELY busy for us here at Wags & Whiskers.  It seems like just about every dog on the block needs a walk.  Don’t get me wrong…I have the best job ever.  The more dogs I see in a day, the more awesome my day is!!  By the time I get home, though, I am pooped!  All I want to do is take a shower and cuddle up with a good book and my good puppy, Buffy.

NO!!!  (That’s what I have to tell myself.)  Buffy is on the exact opposite schedule as me.  While I’m out workin’, she’s at home sleepin’.   When I got a dog, I made a commitment.  I agreed to put my dog’s NEEDS ahead of my WANTS.  I know it’s hard, but for the sake of your four-legged child put on those tennis shoes when you get home from work and hit the streets…even if for just a few minutes.  You will both be happier and healthier for it.

But who wants to hear about exercise when there are cute puppy (and kitty)  pics to look at!

Happy Wags & Whiskers Wednesday!

Lots of tails are wagging down here in Houston – the weather has finally cooled off and the dogs seem much happier on their walks.  This dog walker definitely has some pep in her step due to the cooler temperatures.

Thanks to everyone who emailed pictures in to be included in this week’s post.  Please – keep the cute pup pics coming in!!  Email blog@wagsandwhiskershouston.com.  And remember…it’s October so we’d love to see pictures of your pups dressed up!

Happy Wags & Whiskers Wednesday!

“Cuteness” is the word of the week on the W&W Blog.  Did you see our post on the evolution of your dog’s cuteness?  Check it out and make sure to leave a comment so we know what you think!

Today is the last Wednesday in September…which means we are almost to October.  You know what that means – HALLOWEEN COSTUMES!  If you happen to have a pic of your pooch in costume, please please PLEASE send it to us at blog@wagsandwhiskershouston.com.  We’d love to include it on the blog (plus, we need ideas for our own pups!)

Without further ado, here are our star pups for the week:

Scarlett! (What a model!)


Piper (She looks so comfortable!)

Buffy! (We finally taught her to do the dishes!)

Happy Wednesday!

To all of you who have a holiday weekend coming up, this Wednesday is a wonderful day! Only a few more days until that coveted Monday off. Unfortunately, when your job is caring for furry friends whose their parents are away…you work right on through the holidays. When you love what you do, though, it hardly seems like work!

Included a kitty picture in our Wags & Whiskers Wednesday today. A beautifully sweet one at that.

Enjoy! Make sure that anyone who is having a rough day takes a gander at these shots….guaranteed to make you smile on “hump day.”
