We're to sexy for our.... well everything!

Well The Momma is very far behind on this little photoshoot.....  We had to whip her into shape today!

We have a very dear friend in Houston named Linda.  She works at the adoption center at the track we used to race at!  She even remembers us racing back in 2006 ;)  of course, how could you ever forget us ;) plus we rocked the racetrack!

Miss Linda is a crochet MASTER! As a thankyou for helping her, she sent The Momma this beautiful afghan with greyhound profiles!  She made it herself! isn't that wonderful???


A little detail...



Well she didn't forget us! We got two necklaces (very manly blue and red)


These are our simultaneous "come hither" looks
I don't know... maybe Nelson is just worried.......


She also used her powers of crocheting to make us these warm snoods!!! Now, it has been 100+ degrees here in Texas so we cannot use them just yet, but we will! It was just cool enough today to do a photo shoot with them.....


Momma put the snoods on us and we turned into goofballs, hamming it up for the camera!
ha! you can't see our ears! can you tell who is who?

BOOP, you got somethin' in your eye! hahahaha!!!


We don't even know what to say about this picture...... Momma just keep laughing.....

Thankyou so much Miss Linda!!! We love the snoods so much and The Momma loves her afghan! She is trying to find a way to hang it still ;)

Cabby, you got something on your nose.....

We thought that since not much really exciting is going on right now we would share some old fun stuff with everyone.  some of you may have seen this before... maybe not......

This little series of pictures was taken this year at Fiona's Birthday Party (our greyhound sister, she turned five) We always get CAKE at birthdays!!! so anyhow this was during the cake cleanup.....


Nelson: Oh man!!! Cabby that party ROCKED!!! I have never had cake before!!! It was grea---- ummmm hey there you got some icing on your nose.... you want me to get that?


Cabby: MY ICING! back off! and what are YOU talking about, you have some on your nose too!!!


Nelson: oh yea.... thanks man I was totally gonna miss that..... **SLURP**


Meanwhile... elsewhere in the picture........


Stepper steals a HUGE hunk of icing that The Momma scraped off the cake!


Stepper: man you guys missed out... too worried about the icing on your silly noses..... heh he he


(The Momma doesn't let us get TOO much sugar in our systems so she cuts off the majority of the icing from the top of the cakes....... well Stepper thought that was an awful waste!)


More oldies but goodies tomorrow.......

A Box From My Love Carmen!

Good afternoon everyone! Bully here, I have a surprise waiting for me at the gate! 

comeon and follow me!


oops, sorry I got sidetracked.... I had to kiss a cute little ass.....

now, on to the box!!!!  It is from my dearest love Carmen who lives in Houston!

I got The Momma to use her ever useful thumbs to open it for me....

Lookat all this yummy stuff!! I got two bags of turkey jerky strips, two bags of little drop cookies, a LOVE heart stuffy <3 and a small box of special handmade treats too!!! There is also a love letter... but the contents of that are strictly confidential ;)

I am guessing that those two twin houndie shaped ones are supposed to be Me and Nelson ;)


I asked The Momma if I could have a nibble of some of the bagged treats so she opened one of them for me.....
mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm these smell so gooooooooooooooooooooood................


Momma was laughing SO hard at me with my nose in the bag, she was making it very hard to get to the treats cause she was bouncing with her giggling... so I took matters into my own paws.....


Thankyou so very much to my dearest love Carmen <3 I love you with all my heart and cannot wait to see you again......
Love, Bully



Mr Martin

We want to talk for a moment about Martin. Martin was a wonderful brother of ours who left too too soon :( He was our foster brother for a few weeks before he became very ill and had to be sent to a special vet who could watch him 24/7. The Momma tried so hard to help him get well but it was not to be.  He had something called distemper which makes Momma very angry because it is a disease that can be so easily prevented with vaccines....

if you have been living in a hole void of greyhound news and you have not heard of the FWAC28 you should go here and educate yourself.  These houndies were horribly neglected.  Martin had babesia and ehrlichea and a load of intestinal parasites that would make anyone nauseous. When he came to us he had already had hundreds of ticks removed from his body, momma had to remove about 40 more....

We really loved Martin, he was a lot of fun on his good days.  He loved sqweeky toys and we were more than happy to share ours with him. Here we are (below) on guard duty, Martin loved his crate (we can't imagine why!) so we were making sure that no one messed with him...


Here is one of Mommas favorite pictures of him, we think it is funny that his right leg was SO much more brindle than his left ;) He had a great smile.


Today, exactly one month ago, Martin lost his struggle.  The Momma was called to be at the vet, she spent some time with him and told him that she loved him. The distemper was devastating to his already weak and immune suppressed body.  He had neurological symptoms which meant he had no chance of recovery.

He is home now.....

We were very glad to have Martin here for the short time he was with us, he was a wonderful brother. We miss him very much and we know Momma does too. She is so deeply touched that so many people loved Martin as she did.

Yesterday she received this in the mail from her very dearest friends Shannon and Jackie (They are the Mommas of our girlfriends Lorelei and Carmen by the way)
The Momma says thankyou so very much, we saw her get all weepy eyed :( She says she will wear the pendant today......

We hope that this sad topic does not dissuade you from reading later, we are serious when we need to be, but we will be back to posting fun stuff later....

Love
Bully and Nelson
