A martini is a terrible thing to waste.

Hello Everyone!

If you haven’t already noticed, we have taken a vacation from posting on FridayPuppy.

We are having some fun, but mostly, we are knee deep in franchising, men’s fashion, pickle backs and peanuts.

We love all of your e-mails with your cute pups, but for now, we will be taking a break.

Thank you for all of your support.

An Evening with Shorty Rossi.

Let me start off by saying SOORRRRYYY everyone!!!! Last week was a busy one. All week I was preparing for a Howes & Baum party we were having in our NYC showroom on Thursday night.  After the party you could have found me drunk off of way too many shots of Patron, dancing  stumbling around the showroom in way too high of heels, smoking way too many cigarettes. I was in no condition to write a post, or do most things one would consider productive. As a result, here we are two weeks since my last puppy post.

Sooo, I bet you guys are curious about who won. Well, here it is, I won’t keep you waiting any longer. Bowser!!! Congratulations to the little guy. He has won his proud momma a $25 gift certificate to Wolff’s. Yay!! Like I said before, bier and brats on us!

This week four cuties to ponder, Lucy, Saffy, Annie, and Charlie. Who will be the next FridayPuppy? Whoever it is will win their parents two free admission passes to this years OKTOBERFEST!!!

Thank you for your patience everyone. I didn’t get any threatening e-mails or long rants in comments. Everyone kept their cool and waited it out- I like your style. Happy Friday everyone.

I know I always say it, but damn….I feel like it was yesterday that I was sitting down to write last weeks post. Time is going by way too fast and I do not like it at all.

This weeks winner is very fitting to the prize that will be awarded to them, it feels as though it was meant to be. Congratulations Churchill, you have won your lucky parents a $25 gift certificate to The Olde English Pub!! God it must feel good to be so cute!

More puppies coming your way. Bowser, Maxalicious, Django, and Sophia. Cute cute cute. Vote for one of these pups, whichever you feel deserves to be crowned FridayPuppy. The parents of this winner  will be awarded a $25 gift certificate to Wolff’s Biergarten. Brats and bier on us!

Until we meet again. Happy Friday.

What a beautiful week it has been. I hope everyone was able to be outside enjoying the Fall-ish weather. It’s a little too soon for me, I could deal with a little more heat, but non the less, it has been beautiful.

Ginger is this weeks winner! Congratulations to the parents of this pup, she is adorable. You have won two free admission passes to this years Oktoberfest, which will be taking place October 5th in front of Wolff’s Biergarten. For those of you who have never been, it is a great time. Lots of beer, great food, dog races and stein chugging contests to name a few of the happenings.

This week should be very tough for everyone because there are four great dogs for you to choose from. Mason, Roscoe, Magic and Churchill are in the running for the prize. What prize you ask? The winner of next weeks FridayPuppy will receive a $25 gift certificate to The Olde English! Yay!

Happy Friday everyone, TGIF!

Another week has flown by! The outcome of this weeks FridayPuppy has not yet happened since I have taken over Fridays.  We have a tie folks, both Moose and Bronson were loved equally in the form of votes and I think it right to name both FridayPuppy. Congratulations guys, you have won your proud parents a $25 gift certificate to any of Matt’s four restaurants: Bombers, Wolff’s, Olde English, or Sciortinos.

This week again I bring to you four really sweet pups. We have Lefty, Meeka, Vader, and Ginger. I’m glad that I can’t vote because I know this week would be a tough one for me! So I leave the voting for you guys! Vote vote vote!! The winner of this weeks competition will win two free admissions to this years Oktoberfest, which will be here before we know it!

Happy Friday everyone. Cheers to the weekend.
