Niqqi Has The #BarkWorld Blues

August 24, 2010

I had sooo much fun at Bark World Expo! I met so many of my Twitter friends and made a bunch of new ones!

But now we’re back home and I have the #Barkworld blues!

Well, there’ll be another Bark World next year…



Mix Up In Heaven Delivers Bichon Instead of Human – The Niqqi Story

August 14, 2010

This is the story of how I found my family and my forever home…

This is the story of how Niqqi finds her forever familyl

There I was, sitting in God’s office, waiting to pick my parents out. You know the drill:  you go into God’s office, you are shown several candidates and you choose your parents to be.

It’s a very exciting event and I don’t know how God does it to accommodate all the newborns. It helps that in Heaven, time goes much faster than on Earth. What could be weeks on Earth, is barely a minute in Heaven…so let’s say that things happen fast, and that sometimes…I get distracted.

I was shown in and became immediately in awe with the decorating, especially the wallpaper.  It was beautiful angel wallpaper, radiant and subdued at the same time, and just gorgeous!

Suddenly,  I realize He’s asking me what I think of the first candidates, and that all I can think of is how to get the name of His interior designer…

Chicago Dog Walk

May 23, 2010

OMD!  It was sooo much fun!

This is what happened:  My friend Cosmo was coming over to Chicago all the way from Atlanta to spend Mother’s Day with his grandma.  He had the B.R.I.L.L.I.A.N.T idea to ask if any of his Twitter friends in the Chicago area would want to meet with him!

We had so many respond, but being that it was Mother’s Day and some had other plans, only four of us were able to meet:  Sid, Bosco‘s sister Ginger, Cosmo and I.  We rendezvoused by Lake Michigan and had the bestest of times, as you will see:

Now I look forward to other meet-ups and hopefully seeing videos of more Twitter anipal friends meet-ups  all over the world!


Mission Accomplished at Area 51 Twitter Anipal Adventure Pawty

April 13, 2010

Mission Accomplished!

Teams of intrepid Twitter anipals fought dogfights in the air, flew planes and interplanetary vessels, dug tunnels, barked, distracted and diverted, sniffed and tracked, looked out, jumped and punched!  Dogs, cats, rabbits and guinea pigs alike united to save a dog…one single dog, Laika–the first dog to orbit the Earth, who, in our imagination, was caught in a time warp, crashed into the Earth, and was captured and taken to #Area51.  She was finally saved by a group of Twitter anipals who cared and felt it was necessary to risk it all.

The story might be imaginary, but the situation is indeed very real.  It happens every day, everywhere.  By no choice of theirs, dogs, cats and other animals are abandoned, and left to fend for themselves in an inhospitable world.  Sometimes they are caught. Sometimes they are saved.

If you are an Anipal, take a moment to appreciate your luck.  If you are a human, take a moment to appreciate the unconditional love we, anipals, give you.  If you are a human void of that love, go out to a shelter and search:  your best friend is waiting for you!

The Teams That Made This Rescue Possible

This was another Twitter Anipal Adventure presented to you by  @SmokeyPoodle and @Niqqi.

Sign Up for Area 51 Twitter Anipal Adventure Pawty

April 3, 2010

It started with a tweet… “Is anyone out there?” The message was from @DoggaXT, a Twitter dog.  It was poignant!

It turns out both @SmokeyPoodle and I were listening and it made our ears perk up!  Something just didn’t smell right. Dogga seemed lonely and desperate. After a few DMs, we decided to dig a little bit deeper.  Smokey was able to determine Dogga’s coordinates.  We almost bit our tails when we saw Dogga’s location:  AREA 51.

On a secret two-dog mission, we went there to try to find her…but couldn’t.  However, in a dusty file room, we found this:
This is what Smokey and Niqqi found in a dusty file room in Area 51

We realized we couldn’t do it alone and that’s when we decided we needed all the help we could get. We needed YOU!  We set the mission for SUNDAY, APRIL 11th at 2:00 p.m. EDT.  Read the invitation now HERE! And don’t forget to RSVP!

If you haven’t signed in or RSVPd, DO IT NOW!  We need to know you’re coming so we can organize the rescue.  We are also looking for: diggers, lookouts, diversionists, jumpers, barkers, trackers, interplanetary spacecraft crewmembers, DJs and barktenders. Leave me a comment or send me a tweet or a DM if you feel you have a particular skill.  Otherwise, we’ll be assigning you to a team at our discretion.

See you at #AREA51 #TopSecretMission!
