PetPoc

Another new app to make Moby and Boney more awesome than they already are? How can I keep up with these things?!? PetPoc is a new app, similar to BarkCam, but you can do so much more with it! You take pictures directly through the app OR you can upload existing photos from your camera roll!

PetPoc has a diary that keeps all your photos – you can save them to your camera roll or share them directly with friends through the apps. There are a number of “sticker packs” to choose from. A few of the sticker packs are free, but you have to purchase some of them. You purchase them with coins – you can either buy coins, or earn them – by going to the app every day, making pictures, and sharing the pictures with friends! My favorite part of it so far is you can upload to Instagram right from the PetPoc app! Just hit share and you have the option to open the picture in Instragram!

There are also games you can play – with avatars of your pets (you can choose a generic avatar or upload your own picture)! I’m not a big game person, so this doesn’t really appeal to me, but I can see how some might find it fun.

I hope they continue to come out with more sticker packs, I’ve had fun with the free and one purchased, but I can’t wait to get enough coins to unlock another pack :) Be warned…we may be sharing our pictures with YOU! Below is just a sampling of the fun we’ve had with PetPoc (I’m thinking as good as Boney looks in those sunglasses, he might need some Doggles of his own!). Follow PetPocĀ on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest!

Wordy Wednesday: Cuddle Pug

Dear Boney,

Who is the master cuddler, you or Moby?

Boomer & Dottie

Dear Boomer & Dottie,
This is probably the easiest question I’ve ever been asked. I am definitely the master cuddler. While Moby loves to cuddle, I am smaller and can therefore cuddle almost anytime, anywhere.

I mean, you don’t see Moby cuddling on a pillow, do you? Dad says that I am such a good cuddler, that sometimes he doesn’t even realize I am on his lap or know how I got there! Again, with Moby, you KNOW he’s there! No sneaking around for him!

Boney

Moby Monday: A Long Weekend with Nat

First off, Thursday was my FIVE MONTH adopt-a-versary! And what did mom and dad get me? A new friend!!

Mom and dad left on Thursday to go to Chattanooga, TN for the TN State Silhouette Championship (dad was shooting, mom went for fun). They took Boney to Papa and Grandma’s and they left me all alone to enjoy the weekend with my new friend, Nat. Nat had come over for dinner on Wednesday night to play with me and for mom to give him all my instructions (come on, mom, don’t embarrass me by telling him about my nightmares!).

Nat had to work late on Thursday, so Grandma came over to feed me. It was nice to see her without Allie and Boney – I got some extra love and cuddles!! When Nat came home, I wasn’t really sure what to think, as he’d only been there with mom and dad before. It took me a little while to realize that he was going to be spending the weekend with me, but once he started dishing out the treats and getting all the rope bones out, I knew we were going to have a great time!

We played and played and played. Then we would rest/snuggle on the couch together. Then we played some more. Watched a little TV on the porch and played some more. He even had some friends over that played with me too!! It was super awesome and I got really tired out!

All in all, I missed mom and dad, but I had a really good time and I hope Nat doesn’t wait until mom and dad are gone again to come play with me. Mom told me he was moving away though, so I might not see him for a while. She also told me that I have another friend, Greg, coming to stay with me very soon! I can’t wait!!

Wordy Wednesday: Stop the Head Bopping

Dear Boney,
What were you true feelings the day Moby bopped you on the head? What have you done to ensure that doesn’t happen again or have you decided you like it?

Dear Shelby, Rodney, Maggie, Baby Girl, Mack, Noah, Ceilly, Samora, Dixie, Penny and Jewelie,
At the time, I wasn’t really sure what to think. I mean, all I thought was “Did he really just bop me on the head? Why isn’t anyone here to yell at him!?” I can assure you that I did not like it. But, I’m a lover, not a fighter so I just kind of acted like it didn’t happen. I figured if I didn’t react, he wouldn’t do it again. Since then, I’ve been sleeping across the room from him whenever possible and sometimes even in a different room.
You seem to have lots of brothers and sisters in your house (shout out to Dixie and Baby Girl – Dixie was my big sister and mom and dad called her baby girl) – does anyone ever get picked on?

Moby Monday: Why I Love Rope Bones

I have lots of toys, but my favorite ones are rope bones. Lucky for me, mom buys me lots of ropes!

IMG_2739-1.JPG
Ropes are good for flossing, throwing, chewing, fetching and tugging. You can also use them as pillows if you get tired while playing with them. They are really the ultimate all purpose toy! Ropes are also good for giving mom extra house work because they tend to make a big mess!

Wordy Wednesday: Sticks and BFFs

Dear Boney,

Why do you think Moby’s best friend is a stick?

Turk & Rufus

Dear Turkeyman and Rufus,

First of all, I want to tell you how amazing you are for having lived with my brother for over a year. I honestly don’t know how you did it! He’s only been my brother for 4 months and I’m starting to wonder how much longer I can take it before I snap! I try to be tolerant, but last night he used me as a footstool!

Anyway, back to your question. I think you already know the answer though. He’s dumb. Plain and simple. I mean, who a) chooses a stick for your BFF and then b) eats said BFF. He’s not picky either. It can be a big stick, a little stick, an in-between stick, a real stick, a fake stick, basically anything that resembles a stick. And they are all his absolute BFFs while he has them IN HIS MOUTH! (Grandma is my BFF and I have never tried to put her in my mouth!) Then when he loses them, or eats them, they’ve been long forgotten and he’s on to his new BFFs. So basically, he’s dumb. I wish I had a better answer than that, but I don’t.

Boney

Moby Monday: Yard Work and Snuggles

We had a great weekend! Mom and dad didn’t have any plans so they were home all day Saturday and Sunday! It was great – I wish every weekend was like that!

On Saturday we did a lot of work in the yard. First, mom took me for a long walk and then she mowed. It was about time – my grass was getting pretty long! She said that the battery in her mower had gone bad and she had to get a new one. Whatever the reason it took so long, my grass is now back to a good roll around and sunbathe.

Then mom and dad worked on redoing our pathway in the back. It used to be concrete pavers and stones, but that was sometimes hard to walk on so they replaced it with rubber mulch. That’s much softer on my paws!
I went on lots of walks, played in the yard with mom, dad and my bro Greg, and of course snuggled with mom and dad at night.

After such an eventful weekend, I was wore out!

Guest Post: Allie

Hi everyone!20140731-090925-32965952.jpg

My name is Allie Gator. I think we’ve met before, but I thought it was time that I tell you a little bit about myself, so here are 10 interesting things about me.

1) I’m a black pug. Black pugs are superior to fawn pugs. My mom said so. Boney said that Grandma (my mom) did not say that, but I KNOW I heard her say that at least once. Because I’m black, you can’t see my hairs all over her pants like you can Boney’s. Therefore, black pugs are superior.

2) I like treats…and I’m not afraid to let you know it. I get treats for going outside. Treats for being a good girl. Treats for going on a walk. Wait – I just realized I don’t get treats when visiting my brother and sister-in-law. What’s up with that? No wonder Boney is so thin.

3) I like to go for walks. I’m pretty fast for a pug. I can keep up with big long legged dogs with no problem. I like to go for walks with Moby. I don’t like to go for walks with Boney.

4) I hate to admit it, but I have Boney to thank for my adoption. Actually, my sister Betsy is the one that found me and told our mom about me, but if my mom hadn’t been in love with Boney first, I probably wouldn’t have been adopted.

5) I don’t like to kiss. My sister-in-law, Miranda, says that I have a broken licker. I don’t know what that means. I just don’t like to kiss. Don’t take it personally. I mean, how do I know where your face has been? Why should I want to lick it?

6) I can be anti-social sometimes. I’m a gorgeous pug. But I didn’t get this way by being all hyperactive and crazy. I need my beauty rest. And sometimes that means curling up in a different room than everyone else. Sometimes it’s in my kennel, sometimes in a chair, sometimes in a sun beam. Don’t be offended because I don’t get up to see you – I’m just preserving my good looks.20140731-090917-32957895.jpg

7) I have a vacation home. Although I really like it there, I hope my parents realize I like my real home better. I overheard my sister-in-law “jokingly” say that maybe they should just keep me. I “jokingly” peed on the bed to prove my point that my real home is nicer.

8) Sometimes I wish I were any only child. don’t get me wrong, I like my brothers and sister and their families, but sometimes I wish that it were just me and mom (oh, and dad) all day every day. This might stem from the fact that I’m not a great sharer. I don’t like to share mom’s lap. I don’t like to share mom’s snacks or meals. And I don’t like to share my toys with the 2 or 4 legged grandchildren.

9) I’m a great snuggler. It’s one of my specialties. You can hold me in any position – as long as you are holding me and snuggling, I don’t care. I make noises when I snuggle against someone’s face. Kind of like a cooing.

10) I’m 1.5 years younger than Boney, but I have more grey hair. Actually, I’m not sure that’s true. It’s just that my grey hair shows up more than his because I’m darker to start with. Mom says that it’s not good for pugs to get their hair dyed or I would do something about. I mean – no ladies want their greys to show through. I’ve been told that it give me a classic look, so I guess it’s not that bad.

I’d love to hear some interesting things about you!

Wordy Wednesday: Sexy and Grounded

Dear Boney,
How do you manage to be so sexy, yet remain so grounded?
Jake

Dear Jake,
Thanks for noticing my sexiness. I don’t know if you are aware or not, but sometimes my mom calls me Bones-a-licious. That’s how sexy I am. I guess I can stay grounded because a) I’m short (my legs are shorter than yours!) and b) I’ve seen what happens to a dog when they become too wrapped up in themselves (Hello, have you seen my hunky brother?). I’ve found that when I’m humble, more people tend to tell me that I’m handsome, adorable, cute, and slim. The few times I’ve been a braggart about my sleek frame, I’ve been made fun of (crazy, right?!). So, Jake, just remember that no matter what anyone says, us small dogs have to stick together. We’re what really makes the ladies coo – our short legs, our stubby noses and our huge _______ (you know what I’m talking about here!). Remember that our long legged brothers don’t have our cool-as-a-cucumber smarts and no matter how hard they try to always come out on top with the sexy meter, we will forever be the Kings.
Boney
