Our Gramps said this was one of his favorite quotes and it is one of ours, too, because it reminds us of our brudder:

Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations, the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are less prepossessing. They come to the door of memory unannounced, stray dogs that amble in, sniff around a bit and simply never leave. Our lives are measured by these.

We Win!

Guess what guys!??!? We're weiners winners! We won the POST OF THE MONTH at Dogs with Blogs!! We were the only nominees! WOOOOO! Landslide! We'd like to thank our buddy Mango Man (Oh Yeah!) who nominated us.

We have a theory about why Mango may have nominated us.

Separated at brindle birth?

I believe they weigh the exact same thing, though Mango appears to be a bit taller. Though we also think Otis may have another brindle brudder from another brindle mudder. When our ma ape lived in Belfast there was this show on called TFI Friday (What's the F, ma ape?) and they had a segment of fat celebrity lookalikes (here's a not very funny one.) We've always wondered if Otis was just a Fat Peanut?

Here's Peanut being held by his superduper strong dad. We're pretty sure that no matter how awesomely strong Peanut's dad is, Otis would break his back if he tried to lift the Chunk Tank. And while we are making fun of Otis here are some pictures of him falling off the couch while he sleeps because his head is SO HEAVY. Joe Stains asked us what is in that head that makes it so big and dense. We will investigate for you, Joe.

The only thing of which we can be certain is--it is not filled with brains:

Thank you to DWB and Mango for recognizing how well we work as a team!

Fighting MAAAAAD!

We're SO MAD. Our ma ape is a little busy right now getting ready to see GranNE and Gramps but we have BIG NEWS about winning an award and planting a garden and being generally awesome but our ma ape says she's too busy to help us blog and yet we found some INCRIMINATING PHOTOS that are making us BARKING MAD. Let us demonstrate (warning: photos not for the faint of heart):

See? That's mad. Our ma ape has been traveling. Look! (Don't look if you are Lola or Sophie Brador who are so mad at the Flyers because they are kind of beating the Habs in the hockeys.)
And then they saw THIS! Let's take a closer look, shall we?

It's a lady in a convertible with a poodle on her lap talking on the phone! (The lady, not the poodle). NOT COOL, LADY! The ape tried to lure the poodle to jump in the passenger window but she refused. I'm not sure it was less safe than her situation seen here.

Where was the ape going? To a PET EXPO sponsored by Philly No Kill! There were all kinds of dogs there and it was a small miracle none of them came home with the ape.

Even though many were quite handsome.

And others quite adventurous.

And some were half Ethels!

And OMD! That is our human bestie who comes and visits us when our ma ape is out of town! But wait--he's CHEATING ON US! He was there telling people about his AWESOME art site. He wasn't supposed be acting like our shameless hussy ma ape!

Well, we'll maybe forgive him since he might have mistaken this dog for Otis after a dye job to make him match us.

OK, the ape has promised to help us blog again before she leaves on Wednesday. There will be heck to pay if she doesn't!
