National Watermelon Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!

August 3rd is a grand and awesome day for that little pig called Bacon. It is National Watermelon Day. Heck yeah this big ole fruit deserves an entire day all to itself. Watermelon is 90% water but 100% goodness. Do you know that little oinker here loves his watermelon – rind, juice and ALL!  I’m attaching some pictures for your amusement of a watermelon bash he had not too long ago where watermelon went flying everywhere!  I think it took Bacon’s mom several hours to clean up the mess but she said it was well worth it to make some memories and have fun with the Bacon.  Way to go mom!

Go out today and enjoy you some watermelon!  Make some memories and have a blast.

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Bailey

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!

Name:   Bailey McCormick

Age:  Seven Years

Location:  Mustang Island, Texas

Web/Blog Page:

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  It was so long ago. I was born on Mustang Island and went to my forever home when I was just eight weeks old. I see old photographs and believe I was a happy  puppy. I can’t recall when I first laid eyes on my parents, but I can tell you they sure loved me as evidenced in all the photos and the fact I am totally spoiled.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  My earliest memory is of being called Princess. I wasn’t so sure of what that meant but finally figured out that it was a term of endearment. I think it also may be a tongue in cheek reference to the fact that I am very special and know it.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  I watched as Lucy, my sister  decided to clean off a table full of snacks. She forced me to help her and then when it was done our humans came into the room and were totally shocked. We had never done anything like that before. I tried to explain that I was a victim but I still ended up at the vet.

Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? I think  dad. He seems to be more willing to have me on his lap. I’m thinking it is because his lap is bigger and I’m a large dog. I know you must wonder what I’m doing on a lap in the first place. Well, you see there are times when even we big dogs need some assurance that things are okay. He is always willing to have me on him.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?   Since I’m a boxer I have had people mistake me for a pit bull. I don’t even know any pit bulls so, I really don’t understand how they get confused. I am very gentle but these people act like I’m going to lunge after them. I am always on my leash so I really don’t understand the concern. I think for a joke sometime I’m going to growl and see what happens.

Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!
