Busy puppy

Sunbathing Seven

It's such hard work when you're a celebrity puppy. The pupperazzi are hiding around every corner and you have to put in an appearance at all the notable events. Seven-Five has been working the scene at adoption events, on TV and even at fundraisers, doling out kisses and hugs to all of One Tail at a Time's Team Trivia supporters.

Seven at Team Trivia

In between all the schmoozing, she found time to get spayed, have an appointment with the specialists at CVES and meet with Robin from Paws to Embrace to get fitted for a leg brace. Phew. The consensus is that she will likely need an operation to fuse her wrist when she is fully grown. In the meantime, the brace will give her added stability and hopefully help prevent any other problems.

Of course, Seven has no idea why we're such fusspots because all she wants to do is play. In keeping with her movie star lifestyle, she made a video journal of the fun she gets up to in her spare time.

It's a bit long but don't miss the end - although I caught it on my iPhone (no, Miss Moviestar Seven does not approve of my quality control) it's pretty adorable...

Adopt-a-Bill: Blake

Blake's rescue in New Jersey has the following to say about him:

"Blake is a three year old American Bulldog/Pit Bull Terrier mix, who looks more like a cow than a dog. He was found as a stray in Manhattan and brought to the shelter, and we were contacted when this poor boy was showing signs of depression after being in his cage for about a month.

Blake is an AWESOME dog! He is fun, playful, and obedient. He can sit and give you his paw, and he adores toys. Be prepared to buy strong toys, though, because he loves to rip them apart in about 5 seconds flat. Blake is a big mush - he loves to crawl into his foster mom's lap and sleep under the covers on her bed. He happily gives kisses to everyone that comes into the house! Although he is gentle he is very strong and therefore we would not recommend a home with small children. Blake loves the other dogs in his foster home and plays wonderfully with them. His foster mom gave him a much needed bath and he was very stoic - he didn't seem to like it too much but he constantly reassured her that he was OK by licking her face throughout the whole ordeal.

Blake weighs about 55 pounds, but he is VERY thin and you can actually see his hip bones and back bone in his pictures. He should probably weigh about 70 pounds, and his foster family is feeding him three times a day to fatten him up. He has a gorgeous white coat with black spots and the most beautiful eyes we have ever seen. Blake his housetrained, crate trained, up to date on all his shots, neutered, and microchipped. All he needs now is a family to call his own!"

It sounds like all this guy needs is a snuggly bed and some extra kibble. If you're interested in learning more visit the Shelter Survivors Website or email

The Adopt-a-Bill series highlights adoptable dogs from across the country that look like our very own Bilbo. Unless otherwise noted I have no personal experience with any of the rescue organizations featured. Always do your own research to ensure you go through a reputable rescue when searching for the perfect new family member.

Celebrity Puppy

We're still alive around here but it's been a heck of a month and it looks like it's going to keep up for another week or so yet. However, it doesn't seem fair to leave you hanging without a cute puppy fix so click HERE for Seven-Five's fifteen minutes of fame (well, more like four) on WGN news yesterday!

And for those of you who haven't followed her antics on facebook, check out her playdate with two-legged Fifty:

I've got some adorably cute video of her and Billy's games which I'll try and edit this week, but we'll be back regularly once I've got through a rather intense bout of last minute house-guests, taxes, concerts, new job-starting, closet reorganization, multiple baby-quilt making and driving tests!
