——> the Lucky Winner of the BlueRay DVD copy of this sweet Holiday Family Fun Film is none other than Amy Orvin

    Amy told us:

I know my dogs enjoy watching movies with me because they just stare at the screen. Sometimes when my 13 year old peeki-poo sees a cat, she will start to bark. It’s so funny, because I have 4 indoor only cats at home , and she doesn’t bark at them. I guess she knows they are her brothers and sisters.

Condogulations Amy, we hope you are very pawcited!!!

Chanukah Blog Crawl 2012 – Mazel Tov!!

AdoptedMomToChazzTheDog Blog is proud to be a part of this Chanukah Blog Crawl, and one of the hosts of Night 6 along with Terrier Torrent. We have all been learning a lot about this Jewish holiday/festival.

Let’s take a moment to review.



There are several traditions that are observed during the holiday of Chanukah, also known as the Festival of Lights or Miracle of Lights. So after the destruction of the holy Temple in Jerusalem, during the Macabeean Rebellion between the Jews and the Assyrians in the year 165 BCE, the people went to work cleaning and restoring the building. As they searched among the ruins they realized they needed to relight the Temple. In those days, lights were “powered” by oil. As the people despaired of finding any of the precious oil, they moved aside some rocks & boulders and underneath the rubble, they discovered one cruet of oil. While they were relieved to find the oil; they new the cruet would only last for one day and one night. They lit the flame ——-> and miraculously the oil lasted for eight days.


The story of the oil is the reason that when Chanukah is celebrated we eat foods prepared in oil. Potatoes, fried in oil known as Latkes and served with applesauce or sour cream on the side. There is also a donut, known as Sufgianot. It is a jelly filled pastry, fried in oil & glazed with sugar usually

The Eight Days of Doggie


On the first day of Chanukah my Mommie gave to me, my Furever Home filled with love for me.

On the second day of Chanukah my Mommie gave to me, 2 doggie t-shirts.

 On the third day of Chanukah my Mommie gave to me 3 juicy Greenies,

On the fourth day of Chanukah my Mommie gave to me 4 Spinning Dreidels,

On the fifth day of Chanukah my Mommie gave to me, 5 Golden Latkes

 On the sixth day of Chanukah my Mommie gave to me, 6 Plush Stuffies

On the seventh day of Chanukah my Mommie gave to me, 7 Squeaky Toys

On the eigth day of Chanukah my Mommie gave to me, 8 pieces of Chocolate Gelt.

I Had A Little Dreidel

I had a little dreidel, I made it out of TREATS

and when it’s dry & yummy then all I shall do is eat eat eat!

Oh driedel, driedel, driedel I made it out of treats

and when its dry and yummy then dreidel I shall eat!


Our Chanukah Miracle Wish this year 2012 is for all breeds of dogs to be considered equally adoptable and find their furever home. During Chanukah it is tradition to put the menorah in the window, for all to see and enjoy the warmth of the Festival of Lights. This goes for all those doggies & kittehs in shelters and temporary homes. Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) is not right and should not be made into law. Don’t judge a dog on his appearance, the shape of his head. Look for the love & loyalty you will receive from your giving one of them a safe furever home. This message brought to you by:

Chazz’s Literary Corner – Book Review & GiveAway 12.12.12

Chazz’s Literary Corner is proud to now review a new book from Hy Conrad and Jeff Johnson, Things Your Dog Doesn’t Want You To Know  published by Sourcebooks, April 2012. Genre: Pets, Humor

This book is a fun look at how we as humans struggle to figure out some of our best pups behavior.  With the help from some Courageous Canines, this book helps to unravel the questions that most dog owners ask themselves at one time or another.

Things YourDogDoesn't Want YouToKnow

The pages of this book are filled with howlingly funny stories and examples of dog behavior – most of us have seen from our own canines… and frankly never understood. Now, here for the first time…well to mix metaphors…the cat is out of the bag!

Authors Hy Conrad and Jeff Johnson, with an able assist from 11 talkative canines have cracked the code for the rest of us. You may laugh till you cry, it’s that good. Nice illustrations as well. Kudos Dean Stefanides.

“Anyone who has ever spent time with a dog has pondered the question, “What’s going through that little pea brain?”  Sure, there have been books written about what, if anything, the average dog is thinking.  But those books were all written by people.  Things Your Dog Doesn’t Want You to Know is written by, well, dogs.”


Things Your Dog Doesn’t Want You to Know answers the questions that dog owners have asked for centuries. The book is a collection of 115 humorous essays that reveal the truth behind some of the most baffling canine behavior, their hopes and dreams, their grudges and pleasures, and what they really think about us humans. Peppered with lively, clever stories and visually appealing photographs, Things Your Dog Doesn’t Want You to Know is a verbal and visual delight that is laugh-out-loud funny. If you have dogs, love dogs, or have ever been baffled by a dog, this book is a must-have.


Topics include:

  • My Life in Your Purse by Tinkerbell, the Chihuahua
  • Waiting by the Table (for food scraps, of course!) by Orson, the bulldog
  • The Bed Rules (Rule #1—It’s my bed) by Dimples, the boxer
  • The Reason I Ate the Sofa (leather tastes a lot like rawhide) by Axelrod, the yellow lab
  • I Can Poop the Second I Start My Walk (but choose not to) by Sophie, the cocker spaniel

 This makes a great holiday gift for the dog lover in your life. *Hint, Hint! 🙂

ChazzTheDog gives this book a 3.7 Paws Up rating out of 4
