Sleeps with Dogs
 
Big love comes in a tiny tutu package this week.
Layla is a diva dog with pawfect style and a pawsonality to match.
Layla's mom says her princess is the ultimate lover
who lives her life playing with other pups and napping on human laps. 
This tutu'errific terrier loves everything and dislikes nothing,
as long as you give her belly just a little rub.

This Tutu Tuesday is dedicated to DogMas everywhere.

After months of neglect, Princess DogMa was adopted into the loving home where her son lived.
When she arrived, Princess DogMa's temperament was a little ruff around the edges,
 but with lots of love, a little refresher training 
and some pawtastic veterinary care (Western medicine and Chinese acupuncture) 
Princess DogMa is the happiest tutu-wearing Rottie EVER. 
 From this DogMa to Princess DogMa, Princess DogMa's DogMa and ALL DogMas,
I salute your pawesomeness. 
xoxo

Tutueriffic divas should be fanned and lavished with treats. Princess DogMa agrees.

Lottie and Lola are kickin' Mardis Paws off in style, on this Fat Tutu Tuesday.
Who needs beads when you can wear fabupaws tutus around your necks?
That's what these pawsome pittie sisters said.
  Now they're just waiting for a slice of the king cake,
to get the pawty started right.

It was two years ago today,
when a frightened blue Pit Bull appeared at the Sleeps With Dogs' house.
It was late at night and around the young female's neck was
a knotted rope she gnawed through to break free.
 I knew this stray girl needed a name,
so I called her Harriet Tubman because she freed herself.
Harriet spent the night inside the SWD house.

I whisked Harriet to the vet in the morning to check for a microchip and have her health assessed.
No microchip (not that I would've returned her to a neglectful home anyway). 
She was underweight, had mange and was not spayed.
All treatable.
I left the vet's office with meds and hope of finding Harriet a home.
Having not been in this position before, 
I figured finding this youngster a home wouldn't be a problem...
Foster Harriet became this homeless girl's new name.
After Foster Harriet's mange cleared-up and she healed from spay surgery,
she clearly felt better.
It was then I realized Foster Harriet was a wild, untamed whirling dervish of a pooch.
I was blindsided by this high-energy, nutty girl.
You see, DogMa was used to lazy, easily pooped-out dogs. 
Foster Harriet was neither.
For months, I tried to find Foster Harriet a home 
or a rescue with available space (they were all full),
all while attempting to keep my own sanity and limbs with this pawsmanian devilish dog.
Then something pawmazing happened...
Foster Harriet started chasing balls and bringing them back to DogMa.
Over and over.
It saved her life and mine (mostly mine).
The ball provided a welcomed outlet for Foster Harriet's energy
as the search for a home, rescue or other foster continued.
And while I was desperate and overwhelmed at times, 
the only option told to me repeatedly was to dump Foster Harriet at animal control.
That was not an option for DogMa.
Harriet Tubman is a nutty ball of energy.
She is also silly, funny, sweet and supaw smart.
Harriet has several nicknames at the SWD house: 
Tubs, Tubman, Hairball, Hairballsie and Harrry-monster
She is a cuddlebug who insists on sleeping under the covers.
... And DogMa loves her.
After a two year roller coaster ride on The Tubman Express,
today it is official...
Harriet Tubman has found her furever home.
It is right here. 
 
Size doesn't matter when it comes to Tutu Tuesday.
Fiona is a 3 year old lil' beauty pup who loves the crunchy things in life,
with bully sticks and eggs topping her list.

Fiona's also head over paws in love with her mom and hates when she leaves for work.
When the mood hits, Fiona can be seen flaunting her snazzy tutu, 
a gift from her favorite Auntie Linda and Uncle Mark.
 
Fiona, we applaud your big spirit.
This Tutu is dedicated to you and stylin' small dogs everywhere!
xoxo,
DogMa

Hey Pals - it's the Beast here. 
DogMa appears to be having a ruff time deciding on a SWD tagline.
She recently sent out a plea for help where peeps sent some pawsome suggestions,
but good ol' obsessive DogMa can't commit to any of them.
So please, try to come up with some more ideas. 
I am begging y'all.
Oh and DogMa says, offer still holds...
paw or peep who's tagline is selected 
will get a supaw cool SWD care package!
Ready.
Set.
GO.

Bow wow for now,
Bella the One-Eye Beast

P.S. DogMa says she really appreciates the help and she wuffs you all.
