Word Whiz Wednesday #13: Greenies

March 9, 2011


Fact: When Gus was a puppy, we were hesitant to give him Greenies because we were afraid he would choke.  Our paranoia was so extreme that we took the Greenie away after he chewed it down to a nubbin.  Yeah, we were those kind of puppy parents.  Luckily for Gus, he now enjoys his Greenies from start […]

Word Whiz Wednesday #12: Park

February 23, 2011


According to Gus, park is his favorite word to hear on Saturday and Sunday mornings.  The routine is always the same:  wake up, go do it, eat breakfast, watch his parents wash the dishes and then head to the PARK!  Gus wants everyone to know the stomping and whining fits he throws while he’s waiting […]

Word Whiz Wednesday #11: Gus Biscuits

February 16, 2011


According to Gus, biscuit was an easy word to learn.  When he was a puppy, every time he went outside to go do it, he was rewarded with a biscuit.  Not surprisingly, Gus Biscuits are his absolute favorite type…they’re named after him! Several years ago while perusing the dog aisle at Whole Foods, we happened […]

Word Whiz Wednesday #10: Collar

February 2, 2011


Gus loves when he hears us say “collar” and enthusiastically wags his tail (to the right) when we mention the word.  To Gus, putting his collar on signals that we’re back home with no plans on leaving, which is just how he likes it. We purchased this adorable collar and leash a few years ago from WaLk-e-Woo.  After […]

Word Whiz Wednesday #9: Gus Blanket

January 19, 2011


According to Gus, his Gus Blanket is one of his most prized possessions. When Gus was a puppy he received this blanket from his Aunt Shannon and Uncle Steve.  It was included in the very first package he ever received in the mail.  You can see more photos of his first package here.  When Shannon […]

Word Whiz Wednesday #8: Liver Treat

January 12, 2011


According to Gus, liver treats should be served as an appetizer, crumbled as a topping on his dinner, and as dessert. As you can probably guess, he loves them.  It’s a word he learned very quickly and wishes we’d say more often. You can clearly see Gus loves them.  Here are a few reasons why we […]

Word Whiz Wednesday #7: Raccoon

January 5, 2011


According to Gus, Raccoon is one of his favorite new Christmas toys. After spotting these stuffing-free dog toys all over the blogosphere, we finally gave in and purchased one as a Christmas present for Gus from Bed Bath & Beyond.  It’s not a store we normally shop at for Gus items, but we were enticed with a […]
