Campaign Tuesday

As you might have heard, fellow Candy Date Lexi has dropped out of the Blogville Mayoral Race. She is such a strong, loving and honest candy date, and will be missed!

Today I am sending lots of peaceful POTP to her and her family.
You can visit Lexi HERE.

Lexi's boyfriend Noodles set up a Go Fund Me Page to help off set the cost of Lexi's cancer treatments. If you feel moved please consider donating by clicking HERE.

I'll be back next week with my regularly scheduled campaigning.

Bilbo's Black and White Selfie Sunday

 Bilbo here, Mama took me to the V-E-T this week 
for a follow up senior visit. They checked my eyes and said the Opptimune is doing it's work and I am making some tears!!

Unfortunately, the vet said the reason I haven't been making any noise in the past 4 weeks or so, is because I am not hearing much.Mama felt kind of bad, because she thinks I have always had "selective hearing" (which I may have had at one time but I'll never tell!).  I also got my rabies shot and they stole some of my blood.

The V-E-T also said something about needing to gain some weight and gave me an appetite stimulator so I will eat more...
I told Mama as long as she puts out my pumpkin cookies
 I will do my best to eat them all gone!

 
Mama helped me take this cool selfie while we were waiting for the dogtur. I think it shows my best side!!

Happy Black and White Selfie Sunday!

We are joining Nola and Sugar for Black and White Sunday this week!!

 
We are also joining The Cat on My Head this week for Selfie Sunday

Thursday Travel Tails

This week on Thursday Travel Tails I, Arty, am going to show you some of the beautiful state of Arizona!!



 
It was a whirlwind trip,  with an overnight stop in Flagstaff, but we saw LOTS of cool stuff!




The  scenery in Arizona is very diverse and we saw a little bit of everything! From desert to mountains and forests! The temperatures ranged from a high of 115F when we were driving through the desert to 56F when we left the hotel in the morning!! Mama said we drove near where the Grand Canyon is, but we didn't have time on this trip to stop. There is a rumor she is planning to visit the Grand Canyon in September WITHOUT ME, but I digress.



 We drove by some very cool dirt mountains and plateaus!



 There is  also a lot of red colored rock...



 ...and even plateaus with red rock in them!


When we got closer to Flagstaff,  we were in the mountains and there were trees everywhere!!



Just look at the beautiful sunset!!!



 We continued to enjoy the scenery at the various rest stops!


As you might be able to see, I was a bit disappointed with the Arizona rest stops because there weren't many grassy areas. I am not as picky as Dory, but a big grassy area would have been nice to play in!!



They did have lots of big rocks to climb on though!!
Mama here, the rest stops were acceptable and safe. Not the best that we had seen, but not as bad as some. I'm with Arty, although the red rocks were gorgeous,  it would have been nice to have a grassy area to play in!




The La Quinta in Flagstaff was a nice place to rest our heads and was surrounded by beautiful scenery! 
Mama here again, the Flagstaff LQ was another older hotel. The staff was great, but the building could use some updating. The ice makers were broken on our floor and the one above us. The rooms were not "stinky" but were older, and could have used more electrical outlets. I would give this LQ 3 out of 5 stars.


 There was a nice wall, surrounded by pretty wall, for me to do some modeling for Mama.



 ...and a beautiful flower bed too!!



There are lots and lots of trees surrounding the hotel, and I made sure to leave as much peemail as I could muster up on each and every one of them!!




 I even did a little rock climbing,  just look at the size of this boulder...BOL!




Arizona is a very nice state, and I have to say that Flagstaff was especially beautiful, and lots cooler than the desert!
 Thank you for joining me on my trip!


Next week join Dory and I as we show you our travels through the beautiful state of Kansas!!
