Some of our friends...

Hi all, Moxie here...
Other than all the great pups we've found on blogger... I thought we'd introduce some other friends of ours that we get to see all the time...

This is Paco the chihuahua... quite possibly the cutest 'lil chi we know... and he's quite playful!

This is Pixie, elder sister to Paco... she is quite the spitfire let me tell ya... we get to play with these two Chihuahuas quite a bit... they give us a run for our money!

This is Rio, oh dearest Rio, he stayed for us for several months, and well, let me tell you it was quite a hot and heavy romance we had. We were both starry eyed at first sight... we couldn't help but become bosom buddies... this is a picture of he and I being all silly, we loved to play with each other....

Here we are frapping outside, don't we look good together?

Here he is, Rio, in all his handsome glory... as a fellow corgi, we were made for each other... but alas, he now lives in North Carolina... pretty far for this Ohio gal to keep in touch with... how I miss him....

This is our crazy Aunty Lynde... note the slobber.

Here she is again, she's a beautiful Great Pyrenees, hence the immense quantities of long white fur... she enjoys having us as barking pals... since, like her, we are herding dogs... and its all about the barking!

This is 'lil sis Izzie and Aunty Juno, Juno happens to be my real fur sister (from the same litter)... she's just the dearest, sweetest pup.... she's very motherly, too...

Here we are, Me (Moxie), Rio (in the back), and Juno (right) having a chew party... the good 'ole days....

This is 'lil sis Izzie with Jordan at my birthday party earlier this year.... she hasn't really told me, but I think she's smitten for Jordo... 'atta girl sis, going for the older man....

Here he is again, quite the handsome chap, no? He's an older retired service Labrador... he was a wonderful man's seeing eye dog...

Here I am baby sitting Juno's new 'lil brother, Baloo. Yes, he's chewing on my nose... kids these days...

Here I am with Baloo again, this picture is from his puppyhood... he's just about Izzie's age and a big boy now... huge really, much larger than Izzie or I... actually, possibly larger than Izzie and I combined! He's a corgi as well...

This is Katie, Lynde's (the Pyrenees) kitty cat... she doesn't really realize she's a cat, especially considering most of her pals are dogs... this is a rare calm moment for Kate, she's a bit of a hellion...

The early bird gets the.... Lobster?

So mom is being all... on top of things... and proactive this year, she has already has ordered our halloween costumes... and they've arrived... apparently we are going to be lobsters. Yes, dogs dressed up like red lobsters. Are lobsters cute, you ask? You tell me....

Mom seems to think they're irresistibly adorable, she has been tailoring them to our bodies... she mutters all the time something about dog clothes not being made with stubby-long dogs in mind. We needed a size large just to be long enough for us... LARGE... do I look like I need a large? I'm a svelte 25 pounds... I think this thing would fit a St Bernard for gosh sakes. So, needless to say, the part that fits around our bodies needs to be taken in a bit... well, quite a bit... we could get another corgi in here... I'm sure there will be more horrifying crustacean pictures to come folks... halloween is another 6 weeks away?
