Uh-nother new collar

I walked by mom the other day and she said, "oh Jack, you need a bath buddy!". Armed with cookies, she lead the way into the bathroom where she proceeded to fill a nice warm bath for me.

When she was washing my neck she noticed my rash. Yup, I have another rash. (Which, if you recall, is one reason why I got a new collar for Christmas, because mom thought I was allergic to something in the old one? Right, well it seems that I'm just allergic to any leather collar; even cool ones with spikes)...

Rather than blow drying me, she gave me a warm towel rub-down and then let me loose in the house. Thank heavens she turned on the fireplace! I sat there getting nice and toasty for a looooong time. When dad came home, mom and he decided it was time to buy me another new collar.

So, now I have a really nice nylon graphite colored collar with brushed nickel accents (yeah, that's how I roll if I can't have my spikes, brushed nickel accents work just fine!)

I hope this one doesn't give me another rash...

February is a busy month!

For starters, its cold outside! We just got a lot of snow this weekend (which I LOVE; I've been playing in the backyard as much as I can...) but we're supposed to be getting MORE snow today! Yippy!!

Just got an email adding another even to my busy month of February. Apparently, February 20th is Love Your Pet Day!! What else makes February a busy month? For starters, we just celebrated the Super Bowl, the 13th is dad's birthday, then Valentine's day, then Grampy's birthday and now we add Love Your Pet Day to the calendar...

I'm a firm believer in loving your pet all day everyday, but why not have one holiday just about me? (Well, I mean, we already have two days out of the year that celebrate me, my 'gotcha-day' and my birthday...really, what's one more?)

Don't forget to mark your calendars!!!
