Hi Everyone,

Its been a long long time since I posted, but I have some good news.  I'm 3 months pregnant and it will be our first!  Just thought I'd share :) 

Also, I wanted to post these holiday pictures of Riley.  Enjoy!

First 2 are Riley @ 10 weeks (30 pounds).  Third pic is Riley at 10 months (100 pounds).   :)

Sorry just have to rant and rave a minute... >:(

Riley is over a year old and he's been having way too many accidents in the house!!!  It makes me soooo angry.  Like last night, when I catch him, its not like I can make him stop - he just keeps goin - pees a whole freakin river!  (Only pee - he hasn't pooed in the house for months thank God!)  And it only happens when we have him out and about in the house.  I mean when we are at work, he has a small area in the office blocked off with a baby gate, where he has his bed and thats pretty much it - so of course he won't go there.  Its just so frustrating.  And I've read that his breed is slow to housetrain, but it just sucks.  Seems like anytime I think "Gee Riley has been so good lately" - he surprises me.  Just had to get that off my chest.

Did you guys meet up/cancel/still planning?  I just saw this post and would definitely be interested in meeting fellow New England BPOers.  We live in Framingham - exit 13 off the Pike.

Verrrry interesting!!!  So, has anyone ever tried Sticky Sheets???  I'd be very curious to find out if it worked well.

OMG that is just awful!  The poor little things.  Just last night, the news had a segment on a bunch of Katrina rescue dogs who developed the dog-flu and had to be sent to the bridge.  Just makes me want to cry.   :'(

Hey All,

I've read about a lot of BPOers making homemade treats for their little ones and I've decided I'd like to give it a try.  Please share your favorite homemade doggy treat recipe so Riley can try some good old-fashioned homemade treats!   :)

Am I the only mean momma that won't let her furbaby on the couch??? 

Funny story though, a few Saturdays ago, I woke up and started cleaning our kitchen (hubby had installed recessed lighting in the night before and there was dust everywhere!).  So I decided to let hubby sleep in, and gate Riley off in the living room with some toys so I could clean without getting dust all over him.  So, I check up on Riley every 15 minutes or so, and hes fine.  Well, I got to cleaning the stuff on the counter and about 30 minutes goes by - and I haven't heard a peep from Riley.  I glance into the living room and am shocked to see riley curled up into a giant ball on the couch!!!   :o  I was angry cause hes never been on the couch and knows not to go on it, but at the same time it was the most precious thing I've seen.  I just had to wak up hubby - so we're both staring at Riley on the couch and and he slowly opens his eyes with this look on his face like, "Don't be mad at my momma, I just wanted to take a nap"!  :-\

 Anyway, you all have some adorable shots!

 :o  Wow - I can't even believe she had the nerve to sleep in your bed let alone leave the sheets in a big ball on your bed!!!  Cats got mad???  Please.  That would make me so angry!  And too busy to walk the dog and pick up the poo - isn't that what you do when you're hired and even paid extra to take care of a dog???  >:( Unreal.  Looks like your best bet would be to board him for a night or try to find a good friend or relative to take care of him.  Sorry about your nightmare - you have every reason to be upset!

Tell hubby, he must follow recipe ingredients to the T... no improvising.   Riley and I hope you're feeling better today.

I'm confused - do they eat cat poop or their own dog poop???   We had to put the kitty's litterboxes where Riley couldn't get to them cause he would eat their poop, but I heard its because its got more protein and is appealing to dogs - but he's never eaten his own poo.  I didn't know doggys did that!  Meat tenderizer sounds like a good idea.  Good luck!

Let us know what you end up going with!

I Got it!!!

How about ISLAND

She can put a map of your/her favorite Island and tell a little story about it?


The Island of Hawaii - population, weather, when it became a state etc???
