Testing the Iphone

I am making Moms check to see if I can update my blog with her Iphone and guess what? It appears to be working. This is super good news! I will keep you all up to date on what I am doing while Moms is away for the next 7 days.

For those of you that dont have one yet, I am highly recommending the Iphone. Moms has only a few things she hasnt been able to do on her phone. Moms is in love with it. Now if they would just fix the issue with Adobe flash player, Moms would be in heaven!

Loves to everybody,

Howling Wednesday

Hello Everybody,

Having a good day today. The sun is shining and I gots to howl at the tornado warning sirens that go off every Wednesday at noon for a test cycle. Me and my Vizsla siblings have a grand old howling session every Wednesday.
I thought I would introduce you to my Vizsla siblings today. They are Treska Louise (left) and Butler Eugene (right). They are my bestest friends. I play ball with them and wrestle with them and play lots of tug. We are a crazy bunch. We love to swim in the lake, chase birds and squirrels, and in general do fun doggy things.
Treska is bird crazy! When she is outside that is all she wants to do. She watches and chases birds. Moms rescued her from Colorado. She has lived with us for two years and is very happy to have a forever home.
Moms has lots of training to do with Treska, but with a little more work, Moms wants to get Treska involved in all kinds of doggie sports.
Butler is my bestest hanging out on the couch buddy. Moms got him from Red Dog Ranch in Ramona, CA. He runs agility and has lots of obedience training with Moms bestest trainer friend Joella Cunnington with The Uncommon Canine in Poway, CA. Moms wants Butler to start flyball soon, but the temperature has got to gets a little bit warmer around here.
Well, I think I am all done for today. Moms has errands to run cause she is off to work for 7 days at clients house in Greer's Ferry tomorrow.
Loves all my anipal friends,
LittleMan Festus

First Day of March

I don't have a lot to say today, except WHEN IS WINTER GOING TO BE OVER?

It started out as a pretty day, but by 10:00 a.m. it was cloudy and cold. It started raining by this afternoon. I really have issues about wearing my coat and going out in the rain to potty as you can see by my photo. I just don't like it at all.

Moms found out about a great program for all us anipals. It is The Delta Society out of Washington. It a volunteer program to train to become a service and therapy dog to visit hospitals and nursing homes. I am posting the link to the website if your interested in checking it out. Moms is giving some serious consideration to going, but if Moms starts Nursing school in May, then her time is going to be limited.

That's all I have for today. Love to all my anipal frineds around the world.

My Very First Posting

Welcome everyone,

This is my very first posting on my very own blog page. I am happy to be here and welcome everyone who comes to visit me and read about my days in Arkansas.

A little about myself. I was born in Gravel Ridge, Arkansas on August 3, 2006. I live in Conway, Arkansas with my two siblings Butler Eugene and Treska Louise. They are Vizslas (Hungarian Pointers). We live with my Moms. I sometimes think I am a Vizsla because I try my very best with my little dachshund legs to run and keep up with them when we go to the lake. Let us just say that I am a fast runner. Moms wants very much for me to get involved in dachshund racing, but sad to say that dachshund races are not something that Moms has been able to find around the state of Arkansas for me to do.

Moms decided that she wanted a place for me to talk about pet issues in Arkansas and just share my days with you.

I am happy to announce that the Arkansas Legislature passed a law that changed animal cruelty offenses from a misdemeanor to a felony. I am so happy that my state is beginning to catch up with the times. It is about time that people began to realize that cruelty to animals should not be tolerated.

The newspaper in Conway is "The Log Cabin Democrat". This was the article that was the headline in yesterdays paper. http://www.thecabin.net/news/local/2010-02-26/man-charged-first-faulkner-county-felony-cruelty-animals-crime

Considering everything that is going on in the world, I am so happy that this was the above the fold front page big bold letters headline. Conway is the Faulkner County seat. That means the courthouse is here. If Moms is available, she is going to go and sit in on the proceedings and find out if this man is found guilty and what his sentence will be if any.
