Meet Brienne!

Ain't she a beauty?
Some of you may have guessed, but there's a new foster kid in town!  Say Hello to our 33rd foster, Brienne!  I told the momma that I think she's a Corbin breed, but she said that petfinder has yet to recoginze the Corbin as its own breed.  Whatever.
She came from a very sad and scary place...
Can you even believe it's the same dog?
She was left abandoned there, with nothing but that stack of wood for shelter.  The nice lady at the animal shelter took her in and gave her yummy food, so she had put some weight on by the time we got her.  She still needs quite a bit of weight and she's growning more and more every day.  We think she's about a year old and possibly had a litter of puppies.  She came to us last Sunday, just after my dad's big party!
Bree is all puppy though!  She is quite immature and is still learning how to run around with those big long legs of hers.  She looks like a minature horse!  She can be stubborn and silly and playful all in 5 minutes!  She does like to take naps though and she really loves to play with a ball!
Her and Amelia haven't become fast friends like Amelia and Mayzie did.  They don't hate each other, but I don't see the words BFF being used to describe them any time soon. 
Did I mention that she's quite large? She's as tall as the Corbin and longer than me too.  She still needs to gain some weight, so we're getting her lots of noms. 
She's a very wonderful house guest though.  She's house trained and crate trained and sleeps on one of the dog beds at night.  She did hop into the shower with the momma the other night, so we're thinking she's not too scared of water.  She doesn't have any food aggression or an ounce of any sort of aggression that we've seen... Oh, except for cats.  She doesn't like cats.  Or, maybe she likes them a bit too much! Hehe, sorry to my kitty friends!  She's not much of a barker and rides well in the car.  She's picked up "sit," "paw," and "down" in a short amount of time - although, she may have known "sit" before hand... and if you didn't give her the treat right away, she quickly went to "paw in the face"... so we've worked on her patience in the treating department!  She's also gotten the hang of sitting for her meals... she's a very quick learner and super smart -although a bit stubborn sometimes!
We can't wait to tell you more about her as the days go on and she settles in more!

I've been keeping a secret!

Do you remember last week when I told you about my awesome dad and how it was his 30th birthday?  Well, what I wasn't able to share was my birthday present for him!  Wanna know why?  Because I was also keeping secret that the momma was throwing the dad a surprise 30th birthday party!  Can you believe I kept my jowls quiet?!  It was hard work, but we managed to keep it a surprise and, BOY was my dad surprised!  All of his bestest friends and closest family... but I couldn't be there and everyone was pretty upset about that, especially dad.  BUT, I was there in spirit and I let the momma bring my birthday present for dad so everyone can see it and so I would be at his party in some sort of way.
Are you ready???

It's me and Dad as Super Heros!!!!  What's even better?  That's My Lake George in the background!  Dad loved it and now he'll have this great picture of me and him as super heros for all of time!

Don't we look great?
I was so excited about my present for him and dad really loved it too.
Here's my mom and dad! Don't they look happy?
I also have something else super huge to tell you about tomorrow!  If you follow me on the faceybooks, you might have an idea already! 
Check back tomorrow for my news!

A day for my dad!

Today, my dad turns 30! 
Can you believe it?
My dad is my best friend for lots of reasons.
He's the thrower of my ball.
The pusher of my float on the lake.
The protector of scary thunderstorms.
Thrower of my ball at the lake.
We know how to relax together.
He comforts me at the vets.
And he cruises me around in our chick magnet.
Happy Birthday Dad!
Cheers to 30 more!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
I know we haven't been around a lot lately, it's been kind of super crazy around the Corbin house. My Grandma Lynda's house is for sale and the momma has been helping her with that and finding a new home for her - Closer to the Corbin! Yay! And, the momma has been studying for a test she has to take for work. So, that's where her free used-to-be-blogging time has gone to. Anyway, we're hoping to be back to a normal amount of posting soon. Until then, I'm blogging today and I'll have another post up on Wednesday!  Have you missed my handsome face?
