I have received lots of cute photos this past week! Thank you everyone. Make sure you keep them coming, as they unfortunately go quick!

REALLY REALLY cute pups this week. We have the Miniature Dachshund Moose, the 14 year old Boston Terrier Bentley, cute little baby Ollie, and the birthday boy Bronson. It will be hard, but vote for one of these pups in a comment below. The winner of this weeks competition will win a gift certificate of $25 to the restaurant of their choice- Bombers, Wolff’s, Olde English, or Sciortinos- Whoooohooo!!!

I hope today goes fast and the weekend is here before we know it. Happy Friday everyone.

Another week almost through, this one much hotter than the last. I hope all of you with pups are keeping them nice and cool during this heat wave.

This week, FridayPuppy wins a $25 gift certificate to The Olde English- and like I have already said, it is the perfect time since the back garden is now open! Cute little Kermit won, congratulations to him and his parents!

This week I bring another group of pups your way. Riley, Max, Mia & Jovie, and Barnaby. Look them over, compare the photos and VOTE! Next weeks winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to Wolff’s Biergarten!

I need more photos, my supply of pooch photos is diminishing quickly. So send them in of yours, your friends, even your neighbors, as long as they are cute and clear, I’m happy.

Stay cool everyone, and as always, Happy Friday.

Action shot of the week and the newcomer to FridayPuppy status is the lovely Luca!!! Congratulations to Luca’s parents, you now have a $25 gift certificate to Bombers and a puppy who is a winner!!

This week, we have 4 more cute pups for you to dote over:  Duncan, Indy, Kermit and Dempsey. You may say that Duncan has a little advantage because he is photographed along with the second most cutest thing in the world next to puppies…a baby! (Shhh don’t tell Matt I said that). But we are voting on the pups here folks, lets make it just about them, as hard as that may be. This weeks winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to the Olde English Pub, which comes at just the right time since they just opened their BEAUTIFUL back patio. Lots more space, lots of twinkle lights, and the best game ever…CORN HOLE!

Have a great week everyone. Eat lots of things off the grill and do some fun summer activities, before we know it we will be complaining about the snow!

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July filled with lots of drinks, good food and fireworks. I spent mine at Matt’s camp on Burden Lake which was so much fun. He always puts on a great firework show along with all of the other things that make for a great party. 

Last week I had gotten a little ahead of myself and forgot to announce what the prize would be for this weeks winner. So because of my mistake, the prize will be a $25 gift certificate to the restaurant of choice: Wolff’s, Bombers, Sciortinos or The Olde English. The winner this week is Missy! Congratulations to Missy’s parents!

For this week, I had asked you guys to send in action photos, and I was pretty happy with what came through. Here are 4 of the photos I decided to share. We have two duos- Riley and Stout, Tiki and Walter and the other two singles, Luca and Abby. All pups super cute and all in action!  As announced last week (again having gotten ahead of myself) the prize for the puppy that wins will be a $25 gift certificate to Bombers!

Have a great weekend everyone. If you are just continuing the party into the weekend, cheers to you. If you are one of the unfortunate souls having to go into work-I’m sorry. Drink some water, take an Advil and just get through it, after all it is Friday.

Who’s going to be eating 2 large deliciously topped pizzas from the fun little Sciortino’s Pizzeria you ask? The duo that won this weeks FridayPupp(ies) are the adorable Fleck and Juneau!! Congratulations to the parents of these two, they look very sweet and cuddly!

For this week I would like to try to change things up a bit. Not only am I running very low on the puppy photos, but I think that maybe  I would like to try to get you guys to send in a specific type of photo. I get a ton of dogs sleeping lazily on the couch (which is very cute and easy to capture and I do love them), but for this week, I want to see if I can get your pups in motion. Send me a photo of them running, swimming, playing tug-of-war. Send me an ears-flapping, tongue flopping shot. I am looking forward to these so make them good!! The winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to Bombers Burrito Bar.

I hope everyone enjoys this beautiful day and has a great weekend. If you haven’t checked out the new Troy Bombers you should do so. They have a GREAT patio and make a mean margarita. Cheers to the weekend.
