  • I am thankful for all my wonderful dog buddies and people,,thank you Dr. Pia for the wonderful post..Gobbble

  • yikes..I hit the comment button too soon..just wanted to say Gobble!..Gobble..love, Cora-Belle

  • Hello my friends,
    What a perfect day to say goodbye for me----Thanksgiving. All of you have been my rock for the past 7 months. I never knew I would have a furry soul mate in my life, but my Basil Boy was it. You have all helped me grieve these past months by letting me still be a part of the blog. You have guided me, strengthened me, and supported me. You are certainly the one, the only, the best, Glue Squad ever. So you won't be hearing from old Lynn anymore, but know I am always here in "spirit." Thank you for your love for me and Basil and now the story continues........

  • Hello,
    I am very new at this but my Mom said someone named Maddox said all I had to do was get on the blog and the Glue Squad would do the rest. I came to live in my forever home at Lynn and Will's last night. I have never seen such a home ever. It is a castle with gardens and grass and you can't believe the toys in this place. I have never had my own toy. Now I have 5 generations of pups' toys. I am 8 months old today, anyway the vet's guess, am a black lab mix. I am very thin right now,about 40lbs. but just had another of these castle meals, and wow oh wow, delicioso!!! I love counter surfing and first thing last night tried to steal Weston's big hunk of lunchmeat. I get scared when I hear doors close and scared when people leave. I see though already that everyone comes right back. I will not be alone for a long time, just these little tests when they go in the garage. It is fun to see them come back. I hear today is guests and FOOD. My whole life has been food. Since I take stuff I might just rest a bit in my crate. Yes, I have a crate of my own and slept in it last night. Well Glue Squad I know today is a busy day for everyone, but soon as you can I need your help. Mom says, you will teach me about t.p., maple bars, squirrels, dog show champions and all about you. And she says I am a second generation Glue Squad Member. What is that? Help me gang. I am excited!!!
    Have a GEM of a day,
    Ruby (Basil's sister)

  • Dr. Pia,

    We are thankful for you and your pawsomeness.
    Thank you for all you do on behalf of animals in need everywhere, esp. Pit Bulls. And thank you for loving our Piggie - who by the way sends you big, slobbery smooches.

    XOXO,
    DogMa

  • Hi everybody,
    It's been so busy here today. I did get to sit on the sofa with my best buddy, Eli. He's my grandson? Well, I sure am thankful for my family who took me in and put up with my quirks (every now & then I still mistake a dining room chair leg for a tree). I'm so glad that baby Ruby has found such a great home. I know the Lynn & Will have lots of love & patience & will help you our a lot. We as a group have a whole lot of advice. Just ask & we answer. It's thundering, so I think I need to go into a closet. Til tomorrow.
    Your pal,
    Rebel

  • I'm sorry we didn't make the blog but I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and from Norie much love to CoraBelle. This was Norie's fist holiday in his forever home and we had fun.

  • Dr. Pia I'm a day late but what a great way to welcome Ruby to the group.

    I'm thankful for all my friends here at the DW. My mom says all the time we are blessed in so many ways and she is grateful for such a wonderful life. Oh and she said she is really thankful for having me in her life even when I chew up the TP ;)

  • HAPPY THANKSGIVING DR.PIA, DAILY WAG STAFF, MARTHA, ALL MY GLUE SQUAD BUDDIES-
    I am soooo happy to welcome Ruby today. Such a wonderful sight today.. we have so much to be thankful for dear friends. Ruby, no worries the glue squad will certainly show you the ropes. Our human people look out for us and our glue squad family.
    Thank you Dr. Pia for the wonderful pictures and captions.
    Love, woofs and purrs to all my friends and wish you a safe weekend!! Abby and James Dean

  • Hi everybody! I am sorry I missed wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and welcoming Ruby, but my oh my, things have been busy here!!!
    Mom went away on Sunday morning to work but she didn't come back that night. Instead she came back on Monday with our new sister! Her name is Roxy. She is 1 year old and a pretty French Bulldog. She is tall-- she's called Roxy after the Rockettes, those ladies with long legs who dance at Christmastime; Dad works for them sometime, and he thinks her legs are long enough she could be a Frenchie Rockette. She has very pretty black hair with just a hint of brindle in it; not as much as you, Raven Baby, and maybe even not quite as much as me. She is VERY young at heart and is going to need to learn some manners. Which I would be teaching her except that I am wearing the Cone of Shame right now. I have an eye ulcer that appeared on Monday and we had to go to the animal eye doctor. She's very nice and she said we had a few things to try to help it heal. Keep your fingers crossed that it does so that I don't have to have an operation like poor Raven Baby had to. But I do have to endure the big plastic cone and all the jokes people tell so I don't scratch at my eye.
    We had a nice Thanksgiving, although Mom and Dad had the Great Big Meal over at some friends of ours house. Well, that's all, I better go check on Roxy. I hope everyone is having a great weekend. Ruby, I think you are one lucky dog!!!!
