It's time to say "Hello" to Mopsy's "lil' brudder"!!!
We finally found a pooch "dog" enough to hang with Mopsy! Introducing Cooper, who is a husky and collie mix. (at least that is our best guess) We rescued him from the humane society and he he has assimilated into the family seamessly. Frontrunners for his name were Hudson, Copper, Archer, and Coda. Personally I preferred Hondo, but Jenn ultimately chose Cooper... I let it slide since I was the one that came up with Mopsy.
I already feel that Cooper will be a victim of the second child syndrome where he doesn't get as many puppy photos as Mopsy did. Well, I guess that is okay since this is Mopsy's blog anyway. :)

The Three "M"igos
My Brother took this photo of Mopsy and her friends. The cast of characters from left to right are: Mochi, Maximus, and Mopsy. Mochi is a Maltese owned by our friend Michelle. Maximus is my family's ghetto thug Jack Russell (he claims the "Bloods", hence, the red bandana). And of course Mopsy in her favorite shirt.
Props to my brother for being able to keep these three still long enough to take a picture!  Posted by Picasa

Mopsy turned the big "ONE" on October 1st. To commemorate, we sent out snazzy invites fit to put most wedding invitations to shame and threw a party for Mopsy and her friends. The birthday bash extravanganza was at the Cosmo Dog Park in Gilbert, AZ, which features K-9 obstacles and a lake for doggie paddling. Being the spoiled puppy that she is, Mopsy requested that her birthday guests had burgers, hot dogs, lemonade, a birthday cake from Three Dog Bakery, pup-peroni, games, and a pinata full of goodies for dogs, kids, and also adults. Labs, mutts, bulldogs, bichons, yorkies, a cavalier king charles, a labradoodle, and even a chinese guy all helped Mopsy celebrate and eat cake.
If you didn't get an invite this year, do not fret! Just drop us a line and we'll be sure to remember you come next October 1st! Hooray! Posted by Picasa

1. This is Mopsy pouting by the stairs every morning before Jenn and I leave for class. The sun shines on our "poor little angel" to backlight her perfectly. It was tough leaving for school when Mopsy did this to us.

2. Here is Mopsy on her first camping trip in Payson, AZ. She is the model of camping safety with her baby blue harness and red safety light. Yes, Mopsy is pouting again because she does not particularly enjoy camping, I don't enjoy camping either, Jenn was the only one smiling during this camping trip.

3. Somehow Jenn snuck a photo of Mopsy and I discussing the dog-freindly landscaping design of our backyard and the fact that a true martini is made from gin and not vodka!

4. Happy, smiling, and frolicking at Cosmo Dog Park. Mopsy flies through the K-9 obstacles with the utmost of ease. Jenn thinks she looks like a teddy bear in this pic...

"So that is what they mean by SILVER."

Remember the black puppy with the cool white socks for paws? Apparently, when a Havanese has the color "Silver" it means that their black fur only stays with them as a puppy and their underlying gray fur grows out, making them SILVER!
I like to think of Mopsy going through different fur upgrades, currently she is Mopsy Version 3.0! The first picture is her first major haircut. The second picture is not a stuffed woodland creature toy, but Mopsy with her impostor Schanuzer haircut... She had to get her fur shaved close because we let it get really matted. The third and fourth pictures are previews of Mopsy's Fantastic First Birthday Bash! Posted by Picasa

"O woe is me..."
Mopsy sat and pouted when she found out that Usher, Ludacris, and Lil' John would not be performing at her first birthday bash on October 1st. Ashlee Simpson was available to perform but Mopsy thinks she totally sucks, so we politely declined the offer. I blame the MTV show "My Super Sweet Sixteen" for Mopsy's recent "Diva-esque" actions. She normally isn't like this... honest!

Jenn and I were lucky enough to get tickets for Wicked the musical. I think Mopsy was jealous that she couldn't come along, so she decided to audition for the part of Dorothy's Toto at a local theater. She felt it was important for us to take pictures of her in a basket to include in her "portfolio." I swear it was Mopsy's idea to take this picture!
Hickory Dickory Dock...
These playground "gears" remind me of that nursery rhyme. Now that I am older, "Hickory Dickory Dock" makes absolutely zero sense to me, much like these plastic gears make absolutely no sense to a Havanese puppy. I think it's time we go back inside the house and watch DOG the Bounty Hunter! HOLLER!
Here Comes Trouble!
Mopsy loves cruising around the local malls and petstores. In fact, she actually had the audacity to ask me to get her a car. I thought I could fool her with this "car" but as you can see she was NOT amused! You can practically see her grumbling, "Are you kidding me?" She is one SMART spoiled brat!
