Woofs Up Friday | GBGV

March 8, 2013

Friends, it’s Friday!!!  Wowzers, what a week it has been, I am ready to put my paws up for a bit after this week!

It is meEverything started when mom found me in Target! She was so excited to get home and show me how I looked on the dog bed cover I had modeled for back in September. We had both started to think I may never end up on a package since it had been almost 6 months since my photo shoot but we are not quitters so I sent mom to Target every week to check for me and it finally happened! Judging from this time frame my crate modeling packages won’t be out until

Shoveling is a lot of work!

late May at the earliest.  My bed cover is also not on line right now but I am hoping to see me with the cover on line too in the future.

We got a ton of snow the beginning of the week. I sure love it and it was nice fluffy snow too but I am really worn out from hopping around in it, blazing trails around the yard and playing. Mom tells me I have been snoring like an old man when I go to bed at night which I have been known to do when I am really tired out.

Cousin Lena arrived for her annual spring

break stay with us on Wednesday morning.  She was all excited to get here, remembered the important things too – the room where all the toys are and the drawer with all the dog snacks! Typical Lab, toy and food crazy!  We have been having a lot of fun out in the snow and we have gotten in trouble for being t0o wild in the house with our wrestling but that’s ok, the crime is worth the time! I will post about some of our fun on my Monday Mischief post. We are trying to get into a routine as it is harder for mom to walk 3 larger dogs, so sometimes Lena runs Realtity Awardwith mom and then she walks with Katie and I or she walks with Lena and me and lets Katie stay home and rest.  No matter what we always have a lot of fun.

I got an award from my friend Trev at Write to Wag, sorry it has taken me a bit to get to posting about it but this GBGV girl has been busy lately!  Thank you so much for nominating me and if you haven’t been to his page, paw on the link and take a sniff around, he is a fun pup!  I got the Reality Award and as usual there are rules to follow. I chose a few blogs that are new to me to pass the award on to.

1) Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you…

2) Acknowledge that blogger on your blog and link back to them…

3) Answer 5 simple questions (These are simple?)…

A) If you could change one thing, what would you change?
I think I would be taller. Being a short dog can be rough at times and I feel like I miss out on seeing things especially these days with the tall snow banks around! No wonder I like to jump on people!

B) If you could repeat an age, what would it be? Any year?
Well, being about one was fun. I was still considered a puppy but I had mastered most things dogs need like sit, stay, being house broken, but getting older each year has something special and fun in it.

C) What is one thing that really scares you?
When my sister runs away and mom and I have to look for her. The first time I was just a young puppy and I cried and cried and now that I am older I panic and howl as mom and I frantically look for her. Luckily this only happens at certain dog parks so there is no real danger but I don’t like it when she does that to mom and me. She is a senior dog now so it doesn’t happen too much anymore thankfully!

D) What is one dream you have not completed and do you think you will be able to accomplish it?
I want to catch a squirrel.  I try and try and have come so close but they always manage to get away. I just know one day I will be able to use the element of surprise to get one.

E) If you could be someone else for one day, who would it be?
I would like to be mom because she can do anything she wants, she can drive, buy snacks and toys and decide what we will do all day, that would be fun!

4) Display the award on your blog somewhere…

5) Nominate up to 20 blogs for the award and notify them…

      I know, can you imagine if I really get a squirrel! Hope mom gets it on camera! Mom also said that my bed cover is so new that not all Target stores have it yet, she was in one yesterday that did not have it, but check and you will find me eventually ;)

    You are a busy girl, Emma. Target has just come to Canada and our local store should be open in a month or two. Will be sure to look for your stuff. That’s so cool! Congrats on your award, too. Have a great weekend.

    • March 8, 2013 09:13

      Thank you! I am sure I will be in a store in Canada too when they finally open. By that time I may also be on some kennel boxes :)

  5. March 8, 2013 08:20

    Busy, busy, busy. How DO you find the time to post? :-) Glad you got some snow AND an extra friend to romp around in it with you. Congrats on your award Emma.

    • March 8, 2013 09:14

      I tell you it is not easy being a dog like me and then I have to share the computer with my mom!

  6. March 8, 2013 08:32

    Busy week!! My goodness you have a lot of fun stuff going on.

  7. March 8, 2013 08:34

    What an amazing week Emma! We can’t imagine the excitement over at your place! We don’t have Target here :( but we’re telling all our friends to watch for Emma the Supermodel!
    And thank you so much for the award! We are so touched and thrilled, and so happy to have found a friend like you in the blogosphere! xo

    • March 8, 2013 10:39

      You are welcome for the award! It is pretty exciting and mom still can’t believe I am in stores and a big store chain like Target!

  10. March 8, 2013 10:54

    You’re famous! I’ll definitely look for you next time I’m at Target. Congrats!

  11. March 8, 2013 11:43

    That is so cool that you are a famous Target Dog!!! Congrats on the nice award too, your answers were terrific!

  12. March 8, 2013 12:00

    Congratulations on your award!

    It’s nice to have cousins sleep over, and it looks like you all are having a great time!!

    • March 8, 2013 12:52

      We have so much fun in the beginning but then as time goes on it is like she lives here so we mellow out but we still have fun!

  13. March 8, 2013 12:51

    Stopping by after seeing your cute limerick that Oz wrote for you! Also, Rita ranted on our blog yesterday about the lack of representation for grrrl dogs in pupular culture, and Coralee & Finn pointed out that you are a supermodel for Target! Hooray for more girl dogs getting out there in the media. :) Rita says, “Grrrrl Power!”

    • March 8, 2013 12:53

      Yes, we are all about girl power at my house except for my cat bro Bert. I try to get my mug out there as much as I can. I am working on a book about me now so we will see if mom can get it published later this year :)

    Hi Emma, Thank you so much for passing the award onto me! I love your blog, so it makes me feel good that you like mine too. I hope I can come up with a dream as good as yours of catching a squirrel! :)
    It looks like you had an awesome week, between your Mom finding you at Target, and having all of your company! Oh, and the snow! My dogs love it when we get some fresh snow too.

    • March 8, 2013 20:16

      Catching a squirrel is going to be tough but I am on it. You deserve the award too!

  15. March 8, 2013 18:28

    Congrats on your award. You sure had a fun packed week. Our snow in the yard has finally melted which is good because the last several days it has been ice. Your fluffy snow looks much more fun.

    • March 8, 2013 20:17

      Unfortunately we will be getting ice this weekend, major bummer!

Congrats on the awardie! Very cool. Oh, Target is like Ma’s favorite place! She’ll have to stop by and see your lovely face on their products!

      Hi, thanks for sopping by, Oz is great! I’m going to stop by your place too. TGIF!

  17. March 8, 2013 22:08

    You should try climbing trees like Gretel if you want to catch a squirrel :)

    • March 9, 2013 06:17

      I try, but I can’t seem to get up there, I think she does a much better job!

  18. March 9, 2013 12:48

    Whoo Hoooo!!!! High paws for your modeling pic on the Boots and Barkley merchandise!!!! Thank you for your kind words for our little blog…We greatly appreciate you!!!!
