Baa baa white sheeps!

Since Stanley arrived at our house, we have been trying to get him to play. He hasn't shown much affinity until recently....

Everyone, Stanley would like you to meet Baa Baa.

Baa Baa makes a really obnoxious sound like a baby wailing, and Stanley will not abide anyone hurting the Baa Baa! Once squeak, and he comes running to save the baby from your evil clutches.

It's really quite amusing to see him go from no toys at all to being so possessive of just this one. You'll see his skineez in there and his kong and his bone...but baa baa is the only one that matters! (Unless that kong has some peanut butter in it!)

Woohoo! 100 lb dog!

Stanley would like you to observe what a 100.1 lb dog looks like:

We're down 21.9 lbs in 16 weeks! Most people would be excited to make such good progress on their weight loss plan, so we are super proud of Mr. Stan.

Winter coat is in, so his measurements are all up, but the weight just keeps going down!!

That's his baa-baa there in the picture...more on baa baa in a future post!

Stanley's excited! He says WOOT!

Every year, JNMRF holds a Howl'o'ween Fundraiser. Moosedoggers from around the world dress up their pooches and felines and there's a fun vote to raise money for the rescue. For each vote, JNMRF asks that you donate $1 for elkhound rescue.

Stanley dressed up as Margot this year! (To vote, he's the center on the bottom row!) Donations can be made by credit card, check or paypal on the site!

Stanley hopes that you'll donate. If his folks hadn't been so quick to find him at Homeward Pet , organizations like JNMRF would have been his best hope, and they need your help to save more elkhounds! Please consider a vote (a vote for Stanley is even better!!!)
