Almost ...All About my People Day

Today my good friend Oskar is hosting an All About your People Day!!
So, we for SURE wanted to tell you all about Mama and Daddy!

Mr. Peabody says that every dog should have a boy...Well we think he got it mostly right...every dog must have a human for sure and we are so very lucky to have not one but TWO humans...the Mama AND the Daddy!

Mama and Daddy were born in the dark ages but didn't meet until olden times...in 1999, before we were even glimmers in our doggy mama's eyes! They were married in 2001 and are looking forward to celebrating 10 years (older than even Bilbo) next March.

Daddy is an  IT manager for a financial institution here in Austin. He works very, very hard and we always make sure to meet him at the door when he gets home every day. When he is not working at work, he likes to teach Scuber Divin classes. A bunch of weekends in the summer he can be found at my lake teaching people how to breathe under water...We don't understand the whole WANTING to get wet thing...but he says something about no computers or cell phones under water. He grew up and went to college in the midwest.

Mama was born in SoCal....and ended up in New Jersey where she lived FOREVER until
she came to Texas for a job in 1998. She loves the water and Austin is the farthest she has ever lived from an ocean. Mama is a full time Puppy Mama right now and is going to school part time. She is looking for a new job, but we are doing a good job of diverting the offers from coming in! Mama also loves scuber diving, but would rather do it where the water is blue and warm. She does get in the lake every now and then though..again, something about peace and quiet and no puppies (what's with that?)

Mama also LOVES her camera...sometimes we think she loves it more than us! Then we realize that is just impossible...we are warm and cuddly and the camera is NOT. Not to mention that without us...what would she take pictures of....

ok, BESIDES flowers!!

Mama and Daddy also like to travel to Lost Wages a BUNCH...Mama likes the food and the pools.
Daddy likes that he can get away and let his hair down....
We do NOT like Lost Wages...mainly cause we can't go!!

OK...Enough about Mama...here is the REAL big news of the day....

That's right...The Tree Dogketeers!!!

Congrats hero!!! If you could email us your snail mail address to beth at ebchristians dot com

Also is Booker Man and Dennis can also get us their snail mail addresses we have goodies for you too!!

Oh what a good pack name! All the finalists did a good job. It was fun learning about your Mom and Dad! My Mom and Dad are from SoCal too and now live in the desert of New Mexico, they feel your Momma's pain of wanting the ocean.

hero said...

Woohoo... I won! Thanks for having the contest, Dory... and I must say the competition was really tough with so many good suggestions. Thanks again and I get my secretary to follow up ;)... btw, it's a word play and its "tree" instead of three as some have mistaken. I like your profile on mama and daddy... my hoomans work in financial institutions too and they love the sea as well.

Licks, hero

Ruby's Mum said...

Madi and Mom said...

Hi Dory,
Madi and I so enjoyed reading all about your Mom and Dad...we knew they were very smart from the first time we read your blog...why ....because they picked you all out to live with them.

We love the new pack name...mom said it makes her hungry for a 3 Musketeer bar....humans are very hard to figure out...Maybe I need to go back to school too.

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

We love the new pack name - Just Pawfect!!!

Thanks for sharing all that about your Mom and Dad. Our human brother lives in So Cal and even went to USC. Our Mom really misses the ocean too - she and Dad grew up on the East coast where they often went to the beaches in New England. She mostly misses good fresh fish.

Have a great weekend.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara
