Five Fur Friday #8 LUDO Readers Choice

Bark Kent: Hello loyal readers and welcome to another edition of Five Fur Friday. This week you voted to find out more about Ludo. The interview has been posted a little earlier this week due to the celebrations that are due to be taking place this Friday (Tahlia's Birthday).So without further ado, here he is... Thanks fur joining me today Ludo.

Ludo: It be no problem at all Bark, and may I says, Wow! What an honour to meet you, can I has your autograph please?

Bark Kent: Of course you can. I will organize that shortly fur you. Now, Ludo is an unusual name, why did your Mum choose that particular name fur you?

Ludo: Mum and old Daddy had lots of problems choosing my name. They had lots of different ideas. Mum wanted to call me Ranger, who bees the blue fox cub in the animals of farthing wood books but old Daddy did not like that. So Mum was scanning along her bookshelf and she seed a book she had called 'Ludo and the star horse'. It about a boy called Ludo who lives in another country to me. His horse bees very old and it gets out of it's stables and goes off in a snow storm the boy Ludo goes after it and he finds it has falled down a hole and then gone down a tunnel. Ludo follows and finds himself in a strange land where it be all the different signs of that human zodiac thing. The horse has died and he wants to become a star horse, which be the horses that pull the sun through the sky. Ludo meets a mean old half horse half man who says that Ludo must go with him and guide him in order for him to become a star horse, in the end Ludo realises he has to let the horse go to be in a better place. Even though Ludo be a dog Mum has always loved the book and thought it had a very good message of sticking with our loved pets till the end and guiding and teaching each other on life's journey and the importance of knowing when it time to say goodbye, something that we has beed learning a lot on DWB's lately.
Old Daddy liked it too and so he and Mum went to the nature reserve where we used to live and pretended I beed running around off lead and they practiced calling me all the different names to see which felt best. Ludo won but Mum said a man was walking his dog and looked at them very strange. BOL! Oh, also there a big creature thingy in mum's favourite film labyrinth called Ludo. hehe.

Bark Kent: Furry interesting... (Suzuki's Mum loves that movie too.) Who was the first pup to bark on your blog and do you still bark with them today?

Ludo: Well Bark Kent, the first one to bark on my blog was a rabbit-dog called Carlton Jamal. He a good buddy of mine and was the first one to alert me to the horrors of horspitals. I does not speak with him much anymore but Mum still speaks with his Mum. My first month or so of blogging I did not know that there beed DWB's and I did not get hardly and visitors, till someone Mum knew told her about DWB's. After I joined the first pup's to bark on my blog were Amber-Mae and Addie, I still does bark with both of them but Addie bees one of my favourite friends!

Bark Kent: What is it like living with rabbit-dogs and do you evfur wish you had a pup brother or sister?

Ludo: I liked it better when they was inside the house. When i goes outside I likes to go say hello to them. They can be very annoying! Especially Faline, because I not allowed to chase her and I gets telled off. But I likes them lots and I wished they liked me more. I miss the other 5 I used to live with, especially Rocky who was the friendliest. Here some pictures of me with them.



I had a cat brother too, who I misses lots and if I sees a cat in the street I will try and say hello.


So yes, I would so very much like a pup brother or sister. I likes to play with Sally when she come because Auntie Penny does not like me much. Mum says when she more settled and we move out again I can has one, but I does not know when that will be.

Bark Kent: I understand that you do agility training, do you plan to use these new skills to have a career in the movies? You certainly have the good looks to appear on the big screen...

Ludo: ooh, I does not know! Mum finds agilities very confusing at the moment BOL! And grandpawents do not have a good garden so I will never get very good. I likes to do my freestyle doggy dancing things and one day Me and Mum would like to compete in that so who knows! Aw, shucks, does you really thinks I could be a star?

Bark Kent: I think you could be a HUGE star Ludo :) And finally, you seem to have two special ladies in your life... Are things serious with either of them?

Ludo: Oh yes, I a very lucky dog isn't I? hehe. I has always beed very drawn to intelligent ladies with luscious black furs. I know Miss Kylie not looking for anything serious, she a bit of a play girl herself, she has two boyfriends and some other admirers too! But I hopes things will get a bit more serious with my gal Morgan. I gonna ask her on another date soon, but she very busy with her new sister right now.

Bark Kent: Thank you furry much fur your honesty here today Ludo. It has been a pleasure barking with you.

Ludo: And with you Bark Kent! I so pleased I was able to get an interview with you. It good you asked about my name too, cos since Mason Dixie did my review using my name I has beed meaning to post about how I got it!

Bark Kent: Next weeks nominees are: Charlie, Diego, Scruff the Wonder Dog & Stan of the Republic of Gooberstan

Until next time, this is Bark Kent signing out.

Congratulations to Ludo who won the Readers Choice Voting fur this week's Five Fur Friday.

A quick Mummy & Scooby Pupdate

Mummy cannot walk without assistance and even then she nearly falls ofur screaming and crying. She is on 3 different pain meds.
Scooby has started bleeding again. He has a small ulcer where he has been licking himself, so we hope that is what is currently causing the bleeding. The blood is not as "pure" as it was the first day, it is furry diluted. He is still on anti-biotics.
Thank you evfurry pup fur your kind thoughts and prayers (and paw crossing). I have some photos of me looking after Mum, which I will post tomorrow as part of my working for the snuggle puggle post.
Big licks to you

Scooby & Mummy Update

Hello furry friends. Scooby started bleeding again yesterday but it seems to have stopped again today. The vet said this may happen and if it continues fur the next few days then Mummy and Daddy will have to take him in fur an ultrasound.
Mummy has also injured herself now. She went to work this morning and while she was lifting something, she threw her back out. Silly Mummy. She got taken to emergency and they gave her lots of pills and now she looks like she is watching a circus show in her head BOL.
I will be working extra hard over the next couple of days, organizing Tahlia's Birthday Pawtee fur this Friday, taking care of Mummy AND keeping an eye on Scooby. So if I don't get around to all of your blogs, please furgive me.

OH! But check out my new outfits that Mummy brought fur me.



Do I look skinnier to you? I lost 300grams this week!

Big licks to you

Five Fur Friday #7 COCO Tessa's Choice & Scooby Update

Bark Kent - Hello loyal readers and welcome to a furry special edition of Five Fur Friday. As you are all aware, a couple of weeks ago, Suzuki ran a competition with her 100th post and one of the winners prizes was to join me interviewing the pup of their choice. Well, the lovely Tessa had her name drawn by Suzuki and her choice was the beautiful Coco the Princess. So today I would like to welcome both Tessa and Coco.

Coco - Hi Bark Kent! First I would like to say that I am truly honored to have been chosen by Tessa to be interviewed by you. This is truly an honor and a moment that I will treasure forever
Tessa - Coco, how did you get your pretty name? How did you get to be a Princess?

Coco – Mommy and Daddy brought me home when I was about 3 weeks old. They talked about tons of names such as Honey & sugar…but mommy said that I looked like a little “Coco Bean” because I was so tiny (I fit in the palm of my mommy’s hand. I didn’t even have any teeth I was so young). Daddy fell in love with that name. So they called me Coco Bean but then daddy realized that I was more of a princess so now they call me Coco The Princess…but they still call me Coco Bean too...it’s kind of like a cute family nickname that only my mommy and daddy call me.

Bark Kent - Who was the first pup to bark on your blog and do you still bark with them today?

Coco – this is a funny story. Stanislaw (http://www.ieatrawmeat.blogspot.com/) was a blog that my followed for about 6 months before she bought me. My mommy loved reading about Stanislaw and Big Pupi’s blog. Stanislaw was the very first furkid to leave a comment on my blog and it is because of Stanislaw and Big Pupi’s blog that my mommy was inspired to start a blog for me! Without Stan and Big Pupi I never would have met so many wonderful friends. And yes, I still follow Stanislaw and big Pupi’s blog and we still bark with each other!

Tessa - Coco, we all know that your Mommy works all day and goes to school at night and your Daddy works all day. Who takes care of you and your 2 new sisters all day? Do you all go to daycare or do you have a nanny?

Coco – Well, My daddy only works 2 miles from home. So at 7:20 mommy puts the puppies in the puppy pen and puts a weeble-pad outside the pen for me. I run loose all day. Daddy comes home from 11-12 and plays with all of us. Then he comes back home at 3pm. Mommy is home by 5pm. Mommy only goes to school on Monday nights from 6-10 so daddy amuses us while mommy is studying. Realistically, we are never home for more than three and a half hours alone. When we are home alone (me and my sisters) I keep them company and make sure that they stay warm and I clean their bottoms after they potty too!

Bark Kent - If you could teach Truffles & Lady Godiva any trick in the world, what would it be and why?

Coco – If I could give my little sisters anything it would be as follows:

Lady Godiva -I would give her the gift of sight. Mommy & Auntie Gizelle discovered yesterday that she is not completely blind but she is very close to it.

Truffle – I would teach her how to be more lady like. She tends to be incredibly pushy and assertive.

But first things first…POTTY TRAINING! I would teach them that they have to potty on the weeble-pad in the kitchen and not on my carpet!

Tessa - Coco, I understand that where you lived prior to your Forever Home was quite horrendous, can you tell us all about how your Mommy and Daddy came about finding you and bringing you home at 3 weeks old?

Coco – My mommy found me on a web site called http://www.kijiji.com/. My mommy showed my picture to my daddy and daddy jumped out of his chair pointing at the computer screen screaming “THAT ONE! I WANT THAT ONE!”. It was love at first sight. That was on a Friday afternoon and on Sunday morning mommy & daddy picked me up and brought me to my forever home. I have attached the photo that was posted on my advertisement that my parents fell in love with.

Bark Kent - Thank you furry much fur today Ladies and fur making this a Five Fur Friday first! Suzuki's Mum has asked me to post an update on Scooby as well... The vet rang her this morning and he has examined Scooby's urine. He found no crystals or anything like that, so it looks like his kidneys are OK. He has narrowed it down to being trauma (Scooby may have knocked himself playing or jumping over something) or a possible prostate issue. A lot depends on how Scooby behaves this weekend. If the bleeding stops (and it does appear to have, for now) it is trauma. If not, and the bleeding continues he will need to go in for an ultrasound. Suzuki has promised to keep you updated and his family thank you all for your support.
Until next time, this is Bark Kent signing out.

PLEASE cross your paws fur Scooby!

Hello furry friends, we need your help. Can I please ask you to cross your paws fur my brother Scooby? He has been furry ill today. Mummy came home from work and let us inside and within 5 minutes she noticed a blood trail. The first thing she did was check me and Tahlia! Can you believe that? Just because we fight sometimes, she automatically assumed we had been at it again. Well, we hadn't. Once she followed the blood trail to the end, she found Scooby. She quickly sought the location of the bleeding... It was... ummm... his manhood leaking blood. Mummy rang our doctor straight away and they said bring him in immediately. So Mummy took him to the healers and she was gone fur ages! Apparently there were a lot of big dogs in the waiting room and a chihuahua. Well, the chihuahua tried to start some s*#! and the big dogs started barkin' back at him and then all hell was gonna break loose and all Scooby did was sit there with Mum and cowered into her! Can you believe that? He is normally furry protective of Mum and he was sooo scared. He must be in a lot of pain. Eventually the healer came out and took Scooby into the little room. He asked Mummy some questions and then he checked Scooby out. Mummy says that Scooby was furry well behaved and she was so proud of him. The healer had to take Scooby into another room and give him a catheter and see where the bleeding was coming from. When he brought Scooby back he told Mummy that Scooby had bleeding in his urethra and dried blood in his bladder. He also drained Scooby's bladder fur him and is going to test the urine to try and find out what is wrong with him. Tahlia is particularly worried about Scooby. She is following him evfurry where! He is currently laying in front of the heater which Daddy turned on fur him. The healer said he hopes to know more in the next 24 hours. I will keep you all pup-dated.
Big thankful licks to you

Questions, Answers, Help fur Axl, Birthday Wishes and I WON!

I WON! A short time ago, The Four Musketeers began a Sporty Looking Dog contest and my fellow furries voted ME as the Most Sporty Looking Dog! How cool is that? Thank you furry much every-pup who voted fur me :)

Secondly, I recently ran a 100th post contest and part of the winners prize was they get to ask me a question of their choice and I would publish my answers on this blog. So without any further a Doo...

Tessa would like to know what kind of place is Western Australia for dogs, besides surfing?
Well Tessa, most of the dogs in Western Australia are privileged enough to have a backyard to run around in and beautiful beaches to swim at. There are lots of beautiful parks to play in (no dog parks though). You have to be on a leash in most places and you are not allowed to go on public transport unless you are a "working dog".

Doyle asked: What is the secret to your magnificence, Suzuki?
BOL! I wouldn't say I was magnificent. Just your average easy going Western Australian pup... Like Travis! Although, I am a much happier dog these days now that I'm in love with the wonderful Checkers :)

And last, but definitely not least, Nala asked What does it look like where you live? Can we see some pictures on the blog? :)
Of course!

This is my street...

This is my street at sunset...

This is my beach at sunset...

This is a furry short video of my beach at sunset. It is a 2 minute drive from my house.

Now, Axl needs your help! He's a furry sick little pup. He desperately needs a dog-scan and his pawrents can't afford it without your help. If you are an international pup, you can donate via paypal and if you are in Malaysia, you can drop a donation off to the Fluff Pet Store.

Lastly, Happy Birthday to my friend Scottie! Stop by and send him some fur love.

Big licks to you

Tahlia's date with Rambo

Hello Suzuki's furry friends, Tahlia here! And I have some furry exciting news to tell... I went on a date with hottest chi on the planet...Rambo!

My cousin Scuff flew me to the USA fur my date (there are no photos of this because his Daddy doesn't like me much, he thinks I have an attitude problem pffft)

Rambo's G-Mom made him have a bath so he was all handsome fur my arrival.

Rambo is furry down to earth and he likes the simple things in life, like food and sunbathing nude. And guess what... These just happen to be my favourite things too!

We had a furry nice meal his G-Mom prepared fur us...

And then we spent the rest of the afternoon sunbathing nude in his backyard.

I had to leave soon after that though because Scruff had to get home before his Mum & Dad noticed he was missing.

Thank you fur a furry nice date Rambo... I hope we can do it again soon :)

PeeS - Did I mention it is my birthday in 12 days? BOL

Hello friends...
Today's question and answer post (From the winners of my 100th post contest) has been postponed until tomorrow. I would like to take this moment to apologize fur my Mummy's sillyness though. When she posted the winners photos, she posted a photo of Jake (Doyle's brother) instead of Doyle! So will the real Doyle please stand up...

Five Fur Friday #6 MANGO Readers Choice

Bark Kent: Hi Mango. Congratulations on being this weeks Readers Choice interviewee.

Mango: Hi Bark Kent! I have been barkless and sleepless since you gave the honor of being interviewed by Bark Kent. Your warm, sweet voice makes me feel so comfy and relaxed! Oh, I have brought with me a basket of taste of Texas: some Gourmet Tortilla Chips; World Famous Salsa or Texas Caviar; Hot Texas Peanuts; Lone Star cookies; creamy pecan pralines wrapped in a JalapeƱo Bandana. Hope it's not too spicy for your delicate taste buds! It doesn't cost me anything Bark Kent, on my way over here, I just help myself while flying through the Cyperspace!

Bark Kent: Thank you furry much Mango! And thank you fur taking the time to bark with me today.

Mango: My pleasure! Now that I'm in between jobs, I'll have plenty of time to kill.

Bark Kent: Mell, lets get started shall we? I understand the love of your life Crystal has temporarily closed her blog, how has this affected you?

Mango: Bark Kent, that affected me so deeply that I can't bark in high pitch anymore! Imagine you awake every morning, thinking on your love, having dreamt of her all night, the pain of separation searing your heart every time a fur or doggy smell brings back the memory of your last encounter. Daydreaming, drawing hearts in the kibbles, constantly thinking "I wish she was here so I could share this moment". But, I have to admit, that does not affect my appetite at all! Strange, huh?

Bark Kent: Furry strange... Do you think Crystal may have been hurt by the "joke" engagement of yourself to Betty recently?

Mango: No, dog, no! Crystal would has been hurt if she found my name in Scooby's dating site, Lookin' Fur Love, hehe! But wag a minute, she did react (nicely) about that Mango pops the question joke: "you sure got me for seconds...me not like April fool day". I even love her more when she's mad, Bark Kent!

Bark Kent: If you could take Crystal on a dream date anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

Mango: I love to take her to somewhere expensive, like the gas station in my neighborhood! Doesn't sound so romantic to you, Bark Kent?

Bark Kent: Furry romantic :) Who was the first pup to bark on your blog and do you still bark
with them today?

Mango: Of whom would you think, Bark Kent? It was Snowy and Crystal, of course. Her mom encouraged my mom creating a blog for me, my mom listened to her mom, my mom started to learn how to turn on a pooter, and here I am! But I'd like to recognize the FIRST VIP besides Snowy and Crystal who sweetly smiling at me then: Girl Girl Hamster, she left me a warm welcome message that brightened my day: " Hello Mango, I'm a friend of Snowy & Crystal. You're a cute doggie. Hope to see more post of you". Girl Girl has left us for the rainbow bridge but she is furever in my heart! Yes, I still bark loudly at them!

Bark Kent: Rest in Peace Girl Girl... And finally, if you could be any other breed of dog, what would you be and why?

Mango: Can I be another specie, please?

Bark Kent: Of course!

Mango: I would love to be a dragonfly! I love to watch those delightful creatures, their jeweled bodies and their transparent wings fluttering through the evening mist have always amazing me.

Bark Kent: What a pawsome choice. Thanks again fur barking with me today Mango.

Mango: Thanks Bark Kent, it has been an uplifting spirit chatting with you. Your interview skills are second to none.

Next week the winner of Suzuki's 100th Post Contest, Tessa, and myself will be interviewing the lovely Coco the Princess. I am furry excited. Voting fur the week after will begin sometime this weekend. The nominees are still to be announced.

Until next time, this is Bark Kent signing out.

Fire Photos

Mummy and Daddy just went fur a drive past to see how things were going and most of the fire is out now, there is still a lot of small ones here and there and lots of smoke and smouldering. They also timed how far away the fire was from our house... 3 minutes. Here are some photos taken yesterday by a friend of Mummy's. The furry last one, Mummy took about 30 minutes ago. She has some videos too but she will upload them later if people want to see them.

Happy Easter & 100th Post Update

Mummy has a sneaky suspicion that Brandon may be the Easter Bunny! When she got up in the middle of the night last night, he was gone... When she checked this morning, he was back and he had melted chocolate on his whiskers... hmmmm.

As a special Easter treat fur all, Mummy made these Easter snacks fur us.

You will need:
300gr (10 oz) wheat & gluten free flour
1 egg - beaten plus extra for beating
1 banana - mashed
2 tablespoons of honey
2 drops of pure vanilla extract
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons cold water

To decorate:
60gr (2 oz) low-fat cream cheese
2 tablespoons olive oil
sprinkles (optional)
food colouring (optional)

Mix all the cookie ingredients together to form a dough
Add a little more cold water little by little if mix is too dry
Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface, then roll out to 5mm (1/4 inch) thick

Cut out shapes and transfer to a greased baking sheet, spaced 1cm (1/2 inch apart)
Brush with beaten egg

Bake in a preheated oven, 160 degrees Celsius (325F), Gas Mark 3 for 15-20 minutes until firm to touch. Remove from oven and leave to cool on a wire rack

Beat together cream cheese, colouring and olive oil and transfer to a piping bag with a fine nozzle.
Decorate as desired.
Will store in an airtight container in the refridgerator for up to 3 days.

We asked Mum to put aside some dough and make some special treats fur some special pups.
Scooby had a biscuit made fur Lady
Tahlia had a biscuit made fur Rambo
Our cousin Scruff asked if we could make one fur Abby
And of course I asked if Mum would make one fur Checkers
She is a bit dodgy with the piping bag but we are dogs, so we don't care BOL

Tomorrow I am going to be posting photos from our adventure yesterday... We went rock hunting fur Pedro!

In the meantime, I apologize to those of you who tried to peemail me with the answers to my 100th Post contest. A silly hooman who Mummy hardly evfur hears from decided she was going to send a furry large email last night and filled up the peemail box!
So if you received a notice back saying that the email was full, you can send it again now :) If you have any further problems, you can try sending your answers to Scooby's peemail: scoobylove@iprimus.com.au
Don't furget, you have until 12.01am West Australian time on Wednesday the 15th April to get your entries in.

Here are the questions again:
1. Was it Suzuki's Mum or Dad that taught her how to surf?
2. What was Suzuki named after?
3. Who is Suzuki's boyfriend?
4. What is the name of Suzuki's deceased, but furever in her heart, brother?
5. How many operations has Suzuki had?
6. What breed/s of dog is Suzuki?
7. Who is Tahlia going on a date with?
8. Who was the first pup/s to bark on Suzuki's blog?
9. What is the name of Scooby's dating blog?
10. What question would you like to ask Suzuki?

Big Easter licks to you

My 100th Post! Prizes and a surprise guest!

Bark Kent: Hello Suzuki. Congratulations on your 100th post!

Suzuki: Thanks Bark! I couldn't have done it without the help of Tahlia & Scooby Doo :)

Tahlia: Damn right you couldn't!

Scooby Doo: Tahlia! Be nice!

Tahlia: Pffft.

Bark Kent: As a special treat fur all I made arrangements with your Mum to stop by and interview you fur your 100th post.

Suzuki: I appreciate that Bark. You see a lot of pups out there think we are the same dog. But how could I be a super reporter as good as you? I am just a simple pup from Western Australia!

Bark Kent: Well thank you Suzuki... I think...

Tahlia: Get on with it will you! Some of us have dates to prepare for.

Scooby Doo: Calm down Tahlia! Rambo will wait...

Bark Kent: OK, lets get into shall we... Suzuki is an unusual name, how did you end up with it?

Tahlia: Pure bad luck BOL

Scooby Doo: TAHLIA! That's enough! You are coming outside with me until this interview is over!

Suzuki: Thanks Scooby :) Well Bark, my Daddy named me Suzuki after his motorbike.

Bark Kent: And your Mum let him do this?

Suzuki: She didn't really have much of a choice, she had promised Daddy he could name me because she wouldn't let him get the wrinkle dog.

Bark Kent: What wrinkle dog would that be?

Suzuki: Mummy saw an ad in the newspaper fur staffy x australian terrier pups and when they cam to view us the people also had wrinkle dog puppies and Daddy wanted to play with them instead but when they were let out of their cages they were a bit shy but when I was let out and ran straight to Mummy and wouldn't leave her side. So she argued with Daddy and they took me home. But she promised Daddy he could name me.

Bark Kent: I understand you were quite young when you found your furever home?

Suzuki: Yes, I was 6 weeks old when I cam to live with my Mum, Dad and my big brother Jerry-lee RIP brother boo :(

Bark Kent: You loved your brother a lot?

Suzuki: Yes I did. I used to follow him evfurry where and would only sleep if I was touching him.

Bark Kent: Did Tahlia or Scooby evfur get the chance to meet him?

Suzuki: My sister Tahlia did. He didn't like her much, she has always been bossy.

Tahlia: Shut yer yap Princess!

Suzuki: Please get her back outside Scooby...

Scooby Doo: Sorry, she took my kong so I had to get it back and hide it... It won't happen again...

Bark Kent: It's a furry chaotic house you live in Suzuki, how do you find time to blog?

Suzuki: Well, to be perfectly honest Bark, that's why I gave up part of my blogging time to you. Two days a week, you take over. Which is enough time fur me to catch up on checking out my friends blogs and fur dating ;-) I have a boyfriend now you know..i I met him through Scooby's dating site, Lookin' Fur Love?

Bark Kent: Yes, I heard that your date with Checkers went well and that you are planning a second one?

Suzuki: Yes we are. He will be coming out to visit me soon and I am going to teach him how to surf!

Bark Kent: Surfing is a FURRY special talent. How did you learn?

Suzuki: Mum and Dad brought me a boogey board when I was a pup, and we used to go to the beach and Daddy would put me on it and pull me around. It progressed from there.

Bark Kent: Speaking of you as a pup, I have been told you were almost as destructive as a natural disaster!

Suzuki: BOL Yes I was.

Bark Kent: What sort of things did you get up to?

Suzuki: I would chew ANYTHING! I destroyed and drank a bottle of turpentine once... I chewed up the wiring to one of our decorative pond pumps and was playing with the live wire in the water... I also claim full responsibility fur destroying an entire side garden and grassed area of our house!

Bark Kent: OMDog! Did the turpentine or electric shocks do any damage?

Suzuki: Nahhhh. I wasn't even sick from the turpentine and I didn't get shocked one! But Daddy did when he tried to get the wires out of the water BOL. I have only really had one major health scare in my life.

Bark Kent: Would you like to talk about it?

Suzuki: Sure, it was quite a few years ago now... When Mummy and Daddy took me to have me... we you know... unable to have pups... The silly vets said (and wrote down) that they had used disolvable sutures on my inside bits. I ended up with a small hole/sore on my stomach that wouldn't heal. So Mummy took me back to the same vet and they gave me some tablets to heal it. It worked until I finished taking my tablets and then it came back. I was furry sad all the time because I couldn't tell Mummy where it hurt. She took me back to the same vet again and they gave me an operation and said they couldn't find anything. Mummy got furry upset and took me to another vet. He asked Mummy's permission to get my other vet records faxed to him and he looked at the dates of all my visits and why I was there and he asked about my sutures. Mummy said she was told they were disolvable and he said yes that's what they have written on my file too but he wanted to open me up again to check evfurry thing out. Mummy said of course, just make me better. He was furry nice, I liked him a lot. When he did my operation he found my NON-Disolvable sutures (a really old style that wasn't even MADE anymore!) and they were all infected and the infection had attached itself to all my insides. He removed ev-furry thing and told Mummy I should be a new pup again. I was! I was the same happy smiling pup I used to be. The vet tried to get Mummy to sue the other vet but Mummy was not in a financial situation to do so at the time. She was just happy that I was OK again and she tells EVFURRY pup not to go to that vet now!

Bark Kent: WOW Suzuki, you are such a brave girl to go through all that... I can't even think now so maybe I should end this interview with one of my usual Five Fur Friday questions... Who was the first pup to bark on your blog and do you still bark with them today?

Suzuki: It was the Army of Four who first stopped by to introduce themselves to me and of course I still blog with them... who doesn't BOL!

Five Fur Friday #5 HOLLY & ZAC Readers Choice

Hello loyal readers and welcome to another edition of Five Fur Friday! This week we have a special Easter treat fur you... It's double the fun with Holly & Zac!

Bark Kent: Hi Holly & Zac! Thank you fur taking the time to bark with me today.

Holly: Hi Bark Kent, it is very nice to meet you. We couldn't believe our eyes when we saw our bloggie had been nominated. It is a real honour for us.

Zac: Hiya Bark!, how are you doing?, thanks for interviewing us, we think this is pretty cool!

Bark Kent: We are going to do things a little differently today since there is two of you. It will be two questions each and and joint question to finish up. Ladies first... Is there much sibling rivalry between yourself and Zac?

Holly: Nar not really, i am a pretty chilled out kinda girlie. Zac can be a very annoying little brother sometimes but i do love him. We both do get plenty of attention and cuddles so we both live a good life. I do let him think he is boss sometimes but he knows who really is the boss around here...hehehe

Bark Kent: Who was the first pup to bark on your blog and do you still bark with them today?

Zac: That would be our pal Laura's blog (Taximodo) i think she commented on our very first posting. We had come to know her (on line wise) and her gorgeous dogs through a forum our human uses. Her blog is a great blog about her two Border Collies - Craig and Taz - these pair do real sheepdog training and trials. They have a beautiful sister called Sophie as well. This blog is great as it is all about their progress in training. Our human really enjoys reading it and so yes we still bark at them and read their bloggie.

Bark Kent: Do you believe in the Easter Bunny and do you think he will visit you this weekend?

Holly: Of course, doesn't everypup?.... we are hoping to get to the park at Easter time and meet up with some dawgs. Then catch up with family. It should be fun! :-)

Bark Kent: If you could be any any hooman in the world, who would it be and why?

Zac: If we were talking cartoon characters then it would have to be Dennis the Menace because i can act a bit like him sometimes and have been told i look like him...BOL.
For a human it would have to be a Lifeguard on the beach like David Hasselhoff... i can see myself as a real ladies man, love the beach and so that would be fun.

Bark Kent: And Finally, If you could spend an entire week away from each other, where would you go and what would you take with you?

Holly: Erm well in truth i really wouldn't want to leave the little devil, he is annoying at times but also a lot of fun but if i had to go it would be the Beach and i would take with me a very large stack of Tennis balls.

Zac: Holly's choice would work for me too although i wouldn't mind going to the place i went to last year. It was up North and i got to chase sheepies and eat a lot of sheepies poop. (Usually i would get told no if i tried to eat some poop but i could eat loads that day! Yum) So i think i would love to go again and have a go at working some sheep, i would take Craig & Taz with me so they could show me what to do...hehe

Bark Kent: Thank you furry much fur your time today Holly & Zac. It has been a pleasure barking with you!

Holly: It has been fun doing this Bark Kent, thank you for interviewing us and also thank you to everypup that voted for us.

Zac: Yep it has been fun, thanks Bark Kent and all the pups who voted for me and Holly. Also a Happy Easter to all from both of us. :-)

Next weeks nominees are: Agatha & Archie, Khyra, Mango the Maltese & The Painter Pack. Place your votes by using the poll on the right hand side of your screen.

Don't forget to check back tomorrow fur Suzuki's 100th Post and prize give away!
Until next time, this is Bark Kent signing out...

My date with Checkers

Hello Pups of the world.

As some of you may already know, I went on a date with Checkers recently. He is such a little gentleman :)
He planned the perfect day fur us. He sent his Mum's friend to pick me up in his WWII Stearman. The wind through my fur felt pawsome!
When I arrived he took me to Melton Lake ( because he knows I love water) and we got to go on one of the boats that were practising fur the next regatta. Checkers even got to be "cockspup" fur a little while.
Then he took me to Razzelberry's to share an ice cream cone.
We had one final stop before I had to come back to Australia...
We went to see the Friendship Bell. To see all of the photos from our date, head over to Checkers blog.

Thank you furry much fur a pawsome date Checkers :) I hope we can go on another date really soon.
Stay tuned fur a furry special 100th post later this week.
Big licks to you

Five Fur Friday #4 RANSOM Readers Choice

Hello loyal readers! Bark Kent here again with Five Fur Friday. This week we have a new dog on the block. She may only be fairly new to the dog blogging world but this girl has made an impact! That's right... It's the straight talking girl RANSOM.

Bark Kent: Hi Ransom! Thank you fur taking the time to bark with me today. I am furry sorry that I have been so unorganized this week and fur the short notice with your interview. I should never have over looked the one and only Ransom!

Ransom: That's quite all right! The suspense of waiting all week to find out if I had been chosen or not probably helped sharpen my already keen observation skills! And that is very important when you are head of security!

Bark Kent: I have kept you waiting long enough, so lets get straight into it. I'm sure my readers are dying to know more about you... I understand you were recently kept imprisoned fur weeks! Can you tell us what happened and how it has affected you?

Ransom: Yes. It was a horrific ordeal. I was only sprung yesterday evening! I have the unfortunate lot in life to be stuck with a control freak Spokeswoman. I knew I was in trouble when she color coded the three small, but deceptively fierce, Ninjas that I live with. Then, about three weeks ago she looked at me and declared, "Oh my, Ransom! You're in season," and with those two short sentences began my long ordeal of being confined inside the privacy fence, utterly deprived of all access to the outside world. Day after day I languished...alone and abandoned. Well, almost alone. Actually it would have been BETTER to have BEEN ALONE. Instead, I was cooped up with a manic, psychotic, little Border Collie possessed by a Napoleonic complex and a lazy, delusional, overgrown, perceptually-impaired Newfoundland. As you have probably guessed by now, Bark, a major portion of my day to day job involves keeping those two desperately dysfunctional dogs in line and out of trouble!

Bark Kent: On first impressions most people would assume you are a German Shepherd, but in actual fact you are a Mexican-Chinese Shepherd. Would you please explain to my readers who may not be aware, exactly what the difference is between the two?

Ransom: Well, my papers list me as a German Shepherd, but, in fact, my mother was from Mexico. She had just arrived with her shiny new green card, hardly speaking any English at all when she met my dad and fell madly in love. He had been an undercover cop, but nearly died during his last assignment after his cover was blown. (He had been posing a body guard to drug king pin). Dad was convalescing from his brush with death when his path crossed Mom's. He was utterly, instantly, irrevocably smitten. Sounds like the stuff fairy tales are made of! You might be thinking, "Ahhh...and they lived happily ever after!" But, you would be totally wrong! Mom had a free spirit, an iron will and a fiery temperament. Dad was equally uncompromising and more than a little addicted to adrenalin. His life was his work...so, it isn't any wonder that as he regained his strength he began to feel restless. And, Mom, for her part, began to feel trapped, being saddled with nine puppies. So it is really no surprise at all that even though their love for each other burned fiercely, they had none-the-less gone their separate ways before myself and my eight siblings were more than a few weeks old. Dad's life was his work and Mom just never was the motherly type, so we nine pups all set out on our own pretty early. I was merely six weeks old when I hooked up with the three small Ninjas. Being raised by CHINESE Ninjas left it's mark on me. Hispanic blood courses through my veins, but the three Chinese Ninjas have etched their mark on my heart and soul. So, that's how I came to be a Mexican-Chinese Shepherd.

Bark Kent: I have to ask... You have a furry rocky relationship with your sister Gabby, how is her moving to Alaska going to affect you?

Ransom: It will utterly DEVASTATE me. She's the only dog I've ever been able to goad into a really good fight. The two backyard dogs where I live now are mildly entertaining in their eccentricities, lack of social skills, and over all aberrant behavior, but neither of them can hold a candle to Gabby when it comes to a good old fashioned BRAWL. My dearest memory is the fight when she notched my ear! Her Spokeswoman was horrified, but I was rather pleased with the result...gives me more of a coyote look! And nothing has ever released stress for me quite like sinking my teeth into Gabby's vain little throat. I don't know what I will do without her. It breaks my heart to think that in just three short weeks she is going to be so far away. Also, I am just worried sick because she isn't very bright (have you ever SEEN her SPELLING?). I'm not sure she can make it on her own. I've always been around, in the past, to bail her out of the tight spots she gets in. When she got slapped into prison up in Kansas City for illegal digging, I was the one who came up with an escape plan for her. I suggested she give a sob story to our gullible brother, Vader. It worked! He let her hide out at his place down in the Ozarks for several weeks. She'd still be there, living the good life, if she hadn't messed up and tried treating Vader like she has always treated me. I mean, I'm in top physical condition...there isn't anything Gabby can throw at me that I can't handle with one paw tied behind my back...but, our brother...that is a different matter. He always was a couch potato. While I have been working out daily with the three Ninjas, Vader has just been lazing in the sun with his head buried in his food dish! Gabby, gave him a good working over and the wimp wound up limping and gimping so much that his Spokesperson threw Gabby out on her pretty little ear. So, now, she's back up in Kansas City waiting on her airline ticket to Alaska.

Bark Kent: Who was the first pup to bark on your blog and do you still bark with them today?

Ransom: Why it was Khyra The Siberian Husky , of course, on Valentine's Day of this year! I started blogging when I was eight months old, so I've been at it nearly two months now and, obviously, in that long of time pups have come and gone and many are long forgotten...but Khyra has STAYING power! That Husky is amazing. Sometimes she has already commented on a post before I've even hit the "publish" button! I've never met her in person, but I know I'd like her a lot!

Bark Kent: And finally, the million dollar question... Ev-furry pup that has visited your blog knows just how much you love the ninjas, but if you could only choose one of them to spend an entire month alone with, who would it be and why?

Ransom: Wow! That IS a million dollar question. I have such an naturally analytical brain that it is almost impossible to stump me, but I think you might have done just that Bark! The three Ninjas are all so very different from each other and I love them all differently, but every bit as fiercely. Littlest Ninja is REALLY bossy, but, on the other hand, she is loads of fun and she has the best sense of humor of the three of them. Almost everything that I think is fun, she thinks is fun, too. And she can run like the wind! Like I said, though, she's awfully LITTLE. I'd be worried NOT to take her, because if I wasn't around, who would protect her? Then there is the Medium Sized Ninja. He is really cool! He likes to play rough and get dirty and he NEVER gets tired or slows down. He's got incredible stamina! He and I just speak the same language. He needs me as much as Littlest Ninja does. Then Oldest Ninja is awesome. She has taught me nearly everything I know, but she isn't nearly finished with me yet. Taking a month out of my Ninja mentoring would really set me a long ways back. I mean, she has SO MUCH left to teach me. She is a incredible pole vaulter and just this morning she was telling me she was going to teach me how to jump higher, too. Right now, I can snatch my flying rabbit from a tree branch seven and a half feet off the ground, which isn't too shabby...but, Oldest Ninja is convinced that I haven't yet even begun to reach my full potential. It would be quite handy to be able to scale the privacy fence! Bark, I don't think I could leave any one of the three behind, let alone TWO of them, for an entire month. I need them almost as much as they need me...all THREE of them!!!

Bark Kent: Thank you furry much fur your time today Ransom. I just love your straight talking attitude!

Ransom: Well, Bark, thank YOU for giving me the opportunity to be interviewed by you. It has been a genuine honor. I have followed your interviews from the beginning (clear back to the Snuggle Puggle interview) and have consistently been amazed at your interviewing prowess! To be interviewed by THE BARK KENT has been totally awesome! I hope it is okay that I have given such succinct answers to your five burning questions. I know you would have liked for me to go into far more detail, but I felt like I should keep it short and to the point. After all, I wasn't sure how long you had before your mom and Scooby would once more appropriate your computer! Speaking of Scooby...I went on his Single's Site (not for ME, of course! I already have the Dashing Dexter!)...anyway, I nosed around his spot in cyberspace pretty thoroughly and thought I had found the perfect way to get rid of the psychotic, little Border Collie that just doesn't know when to LEAVE my backyard. I tried hooking her up with one of Scooby's singles, Ludo, a dashing Sheltie who (MOST IMPORTANTLY!) lives on a DIFFERENT CONTINENT!!! I even, self-lessly, offered to raise her airfare and everything, so theirs would not have to be a long distance relationship. But, sadly, Ludo was not interested in taking my psychotic little side-kick off my hands. Oh well....

Bark Kent: Well loyal pups, if you haven't yet visited Ransom's blog you should stop by. Also, please take a moment to check out Suzuki's previous post about the passing of "Little Man" today. Until next time, this is Bark Kent signing out!

RIP "Little Man" :(

It is a sad day furry friends :(
As my Mummy was leaving work today and was about to get into her car she heard a really loud squawking. She looked around to see what and where the noise was coming from and she noticed a bird throwing itself around under a parked car. As Mummy works next to a really busy road she assumed the bird had been hit by a car on the busy road and had made its way to the car park next to it. As she walked over to the car it made its way out from under the car (by bouncing) so Mummy bent down and picked it up. It stopped squawking immediately and looked at her as if to say thank you. It appeared to have a broken wing. She took it to her car and wrapped it up so it couldn't throw itself around the car and started making her way to the vet. As she was driving she thought, "which vet?" There were 3 to choose from however Mummy only trusts one of them and that particular vet was 15 minutes away. Mummy thought to herself, the other 2 vets wont even give him a chance, they will just put him down. So Mummy sped off to our favorite healers, 15 minutes away from where she was.
She talked to him all the way there to try and keep him calm. She kept calling him "little man" and telling him it would be OK because she was taking him to a doctor. It seemed to be working. Just before she arrived at the vet he went quiet. Mummy panicked and tried to check on him while still driving. He was still breathing, so she focused on just getting him there ASAP! When she arrived she told the girl behind the counter everything that had happened up to that minute.
Little man had slipped into shock just before they arrived. the nurse said they were going to put him in a warm box and try and give him something to eat and drink before they took any action. If he improved, he would be sent to a carers house to recover and be released to the wild again. But the nurse did say he could deteriorate quickly. Mummy left her phone number so they could ring her and let her know what happens. Mummy didn't even make it home before she got the phone call. When she left, he got worse, FAST. He began vomiting and they believed he had internal bleeding. The healers gave him a needle so he could fly free again with the angel birdies.
This photo is of a bird who looks just like "Little Man". He was a honey eater.
RIP Little Man
