Co-Hosted Follow-Up Friday

Welcome to this week’s edition of the Co-Hosted Follow Up Friday Blog hop, the blog hop that let’s you wrap up your week and leads you right into the weekend.

Follow-Up Friday Blog Hop

My co-hostess this week is a repeat offender. :-)  She’s dog savvy, smart and owner of three handsome pups.

Need another hint?  Her Dawgs are brown and go by the names, Thunder, Storm and Freighter.

Ah you got it!  It’s the 2 Brown Dawgs blog!  Thank you so much for co-hosting 2 Brown Dawgs, we’re happy to have you back!

Does Anybody Rally Know What Time It Is?, What’s Your Rally Cry? – Author’s Note:

Dawn made an excellent point that I forgot to mention.  The real difference between a Rally match and an Obedience match is you can talk to your dog.

In Obedience you are only allowed to give your dog commands, in Rally you can talk to your dog the entire time you are in the ring.  Which can make a huge different if you had a dog that has a mind of their own.

When I signed us up for this Rally class, I received a packet containing the Rally signs we were learning. Ariane suggests we practice the harder signs without our dogs first.  Then once we have an idea of what we’re doing, add our dogs.

I was super excited this past Tuesday, I actually did a Left About turn and I did it right!  I can’t tell you how long Sara has been trying to instruct me in this command, but it finally paid off.  I intend on including it in the video I submit for Train your dog month.

How I Write – A Guest Post by Erin Shanendoah – Author’s Note:

This was the very first guest post on this blog and I was super excited to have Erin.  I’ve been following two of Erin’s blogs for a while now, The Dog Ate My Wallet and Life by Pets and I knew of her goals to write a certain amount of guest posts this year.

I love how she approached this.  She sent me an e-mail and said here’s a post I did that might be a possible guest post for Heart Like a Dog and she attached the post.

That’s the way to do a guest post, folks!

I hope you enjoyed her post as much as I did.

Thanks again Erin!!  it was a pleasure.

Wordless Wednesday – Author’s Note:

Oh my dog!  You all had such great captions!  I can honestly say I got many giggles from them.

For the record, this is an old photo.  I took it close to two years ago and I can’t remember why they were looking in there but I can assure you 1) the water was as clean as it could be in a toilet 2) they did NOT drink any of the water and 3) Delilah would be the one who would be the instigator, not Sampson.

I did run the photo back in 2011, but considering the time that has passed, I thought it safe to run again.  So here it is, the original picture with the caption I gave it.

It really is magic.  I never see them fill it, but it ALWAYS has fresh water in it!

This ‘N That Thursday – Author’s Note:

We won a contest – Update

IMG_3932 Sampson got his turn with Mr. Sheep last night.  Within minutes he had torn a hole in his head (the sheep’s, not Sampsons.)

Unfortunately the noisemaker inside the head was a small plastic rattle.  My dogs are fine with squeakers, but I couldn’t take the chance with the rattle and I had to take it away.

IMG_3933 Poor Punkin, he looks like he lost his last friend.

Have you seen my Mojo? – Author’s Note

Yeah, I have no idea what’s up with this, but I thank you for your awesome comments, you always find a way to bolster my spirits.

I sat down yesterday and set out a few days worth of posts, and we should also be out walking this weekend which hopefully will help clear the cobwebs from my brain.


If you’re interested in co-hosting a Follow-Up Friday, please leave me a message in the comment or shoot me an e-mail, it’s a nice opportunity to met some new friends and get some exposure for your blog.

This is the Follow-Up Friday Blog hop hosted by 2 Brown Dawgs and Heart Like a Dog.

    I love your caption for the photo! I try to always keep the lid closed on our toilet so nothing falls into the bowl if it should get knocked off the shelf above.

      Thanks Sue! I usually keep the bathroom door shut when we aren’t home. I have someone who likes to eat weird and random items. :-)

    • Jodi Stone says

      He was pouting because I took the rattle away and didn’t let him destroy it! LOL but there were little things rattling around and I didn’t want to risk it!

    Hi Jodi…Love your original caption :) Congrats on finally getting that Left About Turn…For me, footwork was always the toughest part of handling so I’m sure you felt great at this success..Take a couple of nice long hikes this weekend and by Monday your mojo will be back and raring to go

    • Jodi Stone says

      Thanks! It is definitely me, not the dog who has the problem.

      I’m hiking this weekend, God I miss that Mojo. :-(

    • Jodi Stone says

      The sheep will eventually end up like that, but we have always let them do it, so it doesn’t bother me too much.

  3. says

    Toilet bowls are amazing and mysterious things. If only I were a few inches taller, I could get up there and check it out. Sampson and Delilah are lucky to be able to get in there and work it.

    Love and virtual toilet licks,

  4. says

    Poor little Sheepie. I am sorry he wasn’t in your family for very long. Sampson looks quite distressed over it as well. Or maybe he is just trying to cover up his ovicide.

    Which of your dogs do you find is more destructive? I would have assumed Delilah but it seems when she played with the sheep, it lived to see another day.

  5. says

    BOL I love the original caption. I always wonder what it looks like in the toilet; being small I cannot see up that high! I hope you get your mojo back…it is probably just hiding and not completely lost.

    Have a great weekend!

    • Jodi Stone says

      Hi Hawk! No worries, we appreciate you joining us, thanks for participating. It doesn’t have to be Friday….the link is open til Monday!

    • Jodi Stone says

      Thanks for joining me, I love having you!

      I was afraid you’d remember the caption, I think you commented on it the first time I ran it (like almost two years ago.) :-)
