IT'S FURBABY FRIDAY!
This week's 50 FREE TWEETS go to Trish of Birdhouse Books on ebay. As you will see, she's feeling pretty happy these days! Let's meet Barney Fife and Abigail!

(Due to copyright laws on ebay, I could not post large photos of Trish's products. Please click on the tiny pictures to see each one in her store)


I have two wonderful furbabies in my family. They are both rescues, and they are such sweet dogs.



Barney Fife is a 13 year old Dachshund. He has lived with me since he was 1 year old. His original owners were overwhelmed with how much energy a young puppy has, and they gave him up to rescue. He was a sweet, easy pup from the moment he came home with me.

He loves to snuggle, play with toys, and go for walks. He has a cute bouncing walk that looks like he is hopping, and he is a very vocal little boy. When he doesn't want to do something, he makes a noise that sounds like "uh-uh." It is very cute! He is "all boy" in personality and loves running, playing actively, walking through mud puddles, and generally being active and busy.


Original owners? You mean I was with someone else before my mom? No way! But who cares...home is the place where you know you're loved...and this is IT!

Abigail is a new addition to our family. She is a 1 year old Dachshund mix. (Our vet thinks she is Dachshund with some Jack Russell thrown into the mix!) She was found as a stray in a shopping center parking lot by a wonderful rescue group who took great care of her.

She is sweet and loving, and always ready with a kiss or cuddle. She has lots and lots of energy, and seems to have springs on her feet! When she is happy (which is almost always!) she has a cute little smile.


Well...it's been about two weeks since I moved in here. Sure beats the parking lot! Is this what they said was "HOME"? I sure hope so, cuz I've never felt so many warm fuzzies in my tummy before!

Barney and Abigail are still getting to know each other, but they are doing great. When I am working, they enjoy playing with toys and sleeping on the giant dog bed in my study together.



I am a big supporter of pet rescue and feel very strongly about the importance - and rewards - of adopting a dog or cat from a rescue or shelter. You help save a life by rescuing, and you also develop such a special bond with your pet.



You can find Trish in any of these four locations.



FURBABY FRIDAY is dedicated to our much loved furry (or not so furry!) animal friends that enrich our lives and world and make us better people!
