Welcome To Our Blog!



Hi! My name is Sammy-Joe. My Mama said that, since I'm the oldest, I get to be the first one to write in the blog. I am writing this while the silly dogs are wrestling around and biting each other. I wish they'd be quiet so I can think straight! 

We wanted to let you know that we've been very busy putting ourselves on some social networking sites. You can find a list of all of our sites here. If you belong to any, or you join one, let us know, because we'd love to friend you! We love to have friends! (I'd actually rather have friends online, and not in real life. When other dogs and cats get too close to me, I get kinda nervous, and I might have to hiss at them!)

Make sure you check out the other cool things in our sidebar, too! We put a Petfinder.com widget on there. Every time you come to our blog, you'll see a different pet who needs a home! You can also go to the Petfinder website and do a search for a pet near you who needs a home. Any pet you want... dogs, cats, birds, horses, reptiles... can be found on there! Trixie was adopted from a shelter, and before that she came this close to being put to sleep just because there were too many unwanted pets in the pound where she was staying. So, finding families for homeless pets is very important to us, and to our Mama! 

You can also play with Lucy, our virtual lion cub. If you click on "more", in the bottom right corner of her little box, you can feed her a steak! And then, if you want, you can come to my house and feed me some steak! 

Also, if you click on the Google ads anywhere on our site, we get paid... just a little tiny bit, each time you click. Mama says she's going to use some of that money to pay for our food and toys and things, and she's going to donate some of it to Almost Home Foundation, which is the organization that rescued Trixie from that pound that wanted to put her to sleep. So we'd really appreciate it if you clicked on those ads when you come here! 

So. Anyways. Does anyone have any great plans for the New Year? Any New Years resolutions? I think my New Years resolution is going to be to stop spending so much time hiding under the basement stairs, and start going out into the rest of the house again. I used to run this house, until my mama brought home that new little dog! I know, she's smaller than me. Can you believe a dog being smaller than a cat? But she's noisy! Mama says that Lily won't hurt me, and that if I just chase her away once or twice, she'll actually be scared of me

Not that I'm scared of Lily! I'm not afraid of any dogs! But she's just too noisy for me. I prefer my peace and quiet. 

Anyways, since I am the first one to write in this blog, I thought I'd try making a poll for you readers to vote on. You can find it right below this post. The poll is about what kind of pets do you like best? Mama said I had to put in a choice that says you like dogs and cats equally, because she loves us all the same. But tell the truth... you like cats best, right? 

I'm bored. I'm going back to my fort. Bye!

Hello there Sammy-Joe!! I am ever so happy you came by my bloggie and said hello! I tink new friends are sooper dooper cool! I was a little scared to come and say hello cuz when I'm out on my walkies and I see a cat, I got really, really, really, flat onto the ground. My hooman says I probably had a bad ex-per-ee-ants with a cat in the past. I just know I don't want to get one mad, so I bow like they is royalty when they walk by!

But since you are on the other side of the computer, I think it's all O-K!

Big slurps, HoneyBuzz

@mayziegal We dogs think we are the bosses because there are two of us now... but Mama says Sammy-Joe was here before either of us, and we're supposed to be respectful of him. Lily is still just a puppy and sometimes she just can't stop herself from barking at him!!!
Thanks for visiting our blog! We'll be back to visit you soon!

@Madi and Mom
Hi! We did meet Jazzi, AND she asked us if we knew you! You must be great friends with her! Belvidere is a little north of where we live. Our Mama says she ALSO loves all creatures, and she would probably have one or two of each kind that exists, if she could!

@I Am HoneyBuzz
Thanks for coming to our blog! Sammy-Joe wants you to know that HE is also scared of dogs... even though he lives with two of us! But the computer is an easy way to be friends with everyone. You don't even have to smell each other's butts or anything! We will visit your blog again soon!

You know, you don't have to let the googies say much, they probably would forget they had a blog anyway. I did that once, but then I remembered...

@Zazou and Calypso
LOL... you're right! They might forget! Right now they're all excited about it though. Trixie just took her first turn today, and Lily will write something tomorrow!
Thanks for visiting our blog! We'll be over to see yours again soon!

Hi Sammy-Joe, welcome to the blogosphere. Too bad you have woofies for roomies, we aren't into woofies, just kitties.

Thanks for stopping by our blog. Happy New year.
