procrastinating ♥ puppy love ♥ website stuff

I'm procrastinating which is unlike me but I have more than a few things on my plate and feeling a bit distracted.

One of the things I'm procrastinating on includes drawing up a new comic. I have a few ideas ready to go but I want to save those for later. Hmmm....ugh!!

Oh, by the way, if you haven't already seen this, check out this wonderful write up on our Puppy Jones comics by My Daily Toki...♥. We found Toki and her Mum via the wordless wednesday blog hop we recently  joined. The write up goes into our process for how we come up with our comics (thanks again for writing about us Toki & Christine!!!). 

Ok, now Hampton is on my case. He is giving me the evil eye because its dinner time. I certainly can't be late for that!

home ♥ puppy love ♥ hampton monroe (beagle)

The other day we left one of our laptops on the armchair and then came back to find this:

Hampton wiggled his way onto the armchair. I guess he wanted to update his own blog, fb status or twitter? Or maybe he was trying to tell me mine was getting a bit stale. LOL! The little task master (just look at the expression on his face)!

It has been a while since I updated my own blog. I've been busy studying, reading and also preparing for some new work. And, it seems between that, the comics and all the social networking the pups are into (ha!) my own blogging has fallen to the wayside.

With that said, generally all is good on the home front. We are all just trying to get past winter and looking forward to spring and warmer weather!

happy hump day! (or rather lazy hump day)

Its been a while since I've posted. Last week life was really really busy for us all and this week is much slower. I'm have a hard time focusing, especially when the pace is slow.

Hampton and ZuZu have been lazy in their posts as well,  seems the whether has effected their mood. ;) Its been grey and rainy here in Vancouver. And, we actually got a bit of snow today. That got Hampton up and moving early this morning but he's back under his blankie snoozing as I type this.

There's not much to this post except to say hello! And that hopefully we'll be more motivated to post more soon.

This pic of ZuZu recently posted on her fb sums up my mood:

market monday ♥ puppy love ♥ asian themed dog products

It's Market Monday! I love shopping and browsing for things online and so I thought I'd start a weekly "Market Monday" blog post and share with you random cute, fun and interesting things we find. And occasionally we'll include product reviews too. 

With Lunar New Year coming up on February 3rd, I thought it would be fun to post some neat asian themed dog stuff I found online recently:

This hilarious and cute Tuna-Inside-Out Combo ($15.00) is from

You can also buy toys in singles like this Bone Maki for $7.00

Aren't these hilarious? Each squeaker toy is approximately 2.5 x 3.5 inches. I know Hampton and ZuZu would enjoy these while Dave and I enjoy our real sushi!


I also found these really cool Asian themed dog collars by Collars are available as a martingale collar, buckle martingale collar, or side release buckle dog collar.  The prices range from $30 to $40 each. 

I think Hampton would look cute in their Dragon (Copper) collar and ZuZu would look so pretty in their Lilac Cherry Blossom collar (maybe it will help bring out the girly girl in her or help people from mistaking her for a raccoon).

What I really also like about 2houndsdesign is that they have helped raise more than $350,000 for pet adoption groups all over the world!

Well that's it for this week. Have a happy Lunar New Year!

A few months ago I blogged about dogs, thailand and voluntourism! I got the info from an online friend Melissa (mum to Hampton and ZuZu's beagle friend Sadie). Since then I received an email from Zoe,  founder of I went on their website and it looks like another great opportunity! A couple of trips coming up include, one in March in the oceanside town of Manzanillo Mexico which includes volunteering in a mass community spay/neuter clinic and then surf, snorkel, trek and kayak, and one in May in Greece (I want to do this one!), which includes helping to fix up a shelter and also doing educational work, followed by rafting, trekking, sea kayaking and a mineral springs excursion. Zoe blogged about her experience in Greece last year here.

I am so very inspired by all the work that is being done to raise awareness and help animals around the world!


I have decided within the next 5 years we are definitely going to do one of these volunteer vacations and soon you'll be reading about all about our adventures! :)
