Paltry Pickins

Mom took Ziggy and me for another walk on the beach today. It was much, much warmer and less windy than the last time we went but she still made me wear a coat. This particular coat is Leah's favorite. We looked for beach glass to fill our coffee table but today the pickens were paltry. Mom has an eagle eye when it comes to beach glass hunting.Can you see the beach glass in this picture? Here it is. When we walk on the beach I usually stay right behind my mom the whole time but today I decided to go see what Ziggy was up to so I strayed away from her for a minute. I forgot to ask her if it was ok first and when she looked behind her to make sure I was still there she FREAKED out! Pedro! Pedro! PEDRO!!! Chill out Mom, I was right here behind this big stick! After she found me she tried to get Ziggy and I to pose for her. That brought back memories of our Christmas card photo shoot but this time we got the picture on the 1st try. As we were walking my mom had this brilliant idea! As you can see, our coffee table has 4 sections. Two sections are pretty full with all the beach glass and shells we've found so far. We're going to start working on the 3rd section soon BUT we have a great idea for the 4th section! We think it would be so much fun if each of you would send us a shell or rock from where you live. We would love to have a Dogs With Blogs section of our coffee table with treasures from all over the world. So if you would like to participate this is what you need to do:

1. Find a rock or shell that is no bigger than 3/4" or 2 centimeters tall

2. Take a picture of yourself looking for the rock/shell

3. Email me the picture and snail mail me the rock/shell

4. I will then take a picture of your rock/shell in my coffee table and post it on my blog
If you have the DWB Christmas Card list you have my mailing address. If you don't have the list, email me and I will send you my mailing address. I think this will be a really fun project and I hope you all send me a beautiful shell or rock from your neck of the woods!

Cousin Pedro,
G-Mom said that I can go to the Chino Hills State Park to look for a rock. She said we have to put it in a box and then send it to you.
G-Mom must really like you cause she has never taken me to the park before, and I have lived in Chino Hills all my life!
pee ess. I am going to get a rock for myself too!

Katie and Gizmo said...

Hi Pedro, your blue coat is beautiful, I can see why it is Leah's favorite.

My mum loves your mums coffee table. We have lots of shells in our house as well because my mum used to collect them when she was little. She doesn't have alot of time to do so now though, but if she does find the time, we will surely send them on to you.

That´s a cool idea, Pedro! Your coffe table is looking great!
I have never seen the beach before, but it looks like a lot of fun.


Bae Bae said...

That sounds like a fun project. ;)

Deetz said...

I love your table. That is so cool! I want to find a really cool one for your table. I will need your address though..I am so excited about this. Pedro, you are a great friend too, very caring and kind and sometimes JB and I (in our naptime dreams) pretend we are having a picnic in the sunflower fields and no one can find can come along if you want would be so cool...JB likes to bring tuna or fish, I don't fish.
I am going to try and find a very special rock or stone for your table...Pawsome Pawsome Pawsome
Sharkie would just eat the rock and I want to do this on my own so I am not including him...hehe

Deetz said...

I forgot to ask....can I put a picture of your table on a post tomorrow along with what to do? So many are going to just love this...Might have to get a bigger table....bol

Lacy said...

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

JB's Big World said...

I love your beach pics! What fun you had looking for beach glass. And what a fun project! I will ask my mom to help me pick out something here from Texas. I am SUPER excited!
Mom, mom! Come quick and help me with Pedro's project!!
Will write to you soon, Pedro!

happy said...

You have a lovely coffee table! And that's a great idea! We'll send you one when we head for the beach. That'll be a while from now though so hope you don't mind waiting.

Jemma and Tofu said...

Your coffee table is GORGEOUS. We love it!! We'll try and look for a nice rock on our walks, but we never see anything as pretty as the ones your mom already has found. Maybe when the weather gets even better and we get to go to the beach...


Pink Chihuahua Princess said...

Hey Pedro. We just wanted to let you know our mommy just posted some new pictures of us.

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

What a great idea! When it warms up, we'll hunt for a very special rock for you! When our mom is worrying about something, she rock-hunts in our yard. What a silly woman! She says that when she rock-hunts, her only thought in the whole world is where to stick her rock-picker-upper next. We have bazillions of rocks, but no shells or beach glass.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We read about this at Deetz's. What a neat idea! It sounds like a lot of fun.

the 4 Bs said...

hey Pedro, this is a pawtastic idea. your table is so pretty and filling it with treasures from your DWB friends is really cool. we have a little rock collection (sorry, no shells) and we will look for a small pretty one to send to you.


Eduardo said...

Hey Pedro!
I just got over here from deetzy blog! You've got pawprints on your bloggie like I've got on mine, that's so cool! Anyway, my name is Eduardo & I wanted to tell you I'm going to hunt for the prettiest glass I can find! There isn't many beaches here so we may have to send you a rock! But it will be the best rock ever!!!!! I'll add you to my snuggle buddies list so I can visit you more often!

Moco said...

What a wonderful idea. We will start looking around for something nice for your table.
You shouldn't scare your mom like that, Pedro.

Stella said...

Heard about you guys from Deetzy, and had to come say hi.

Sounds like a fun idea, if we can get our lazy girl to do it for us.

Goob love,

The OP Pack said...

Hi Pedro, Our first visit, Deetz sent us. We would love to try to find a rock or shell or glass for your table. Not sure we will find any shells here in OP, Kansas, but we will keep our eyes open for a good rock.

Tail wags, the OP Pack

Hmmm, must be a sign, our word verification is sityrock.

The OP Pack said...

Pee Ess, Pedro - can woo send us your address.

Anonymous said...

Hi Pedro! I just came over from Deetzy's place. What a great idea! My mom goes to the beach all the time (but dogs aren't allowed on the beach - you're so lucky!) and she always sees cool shells and rocks. I'll email you so we can get your mailing address, and the next time she goes to the beach she'll look for something for you.

See ya!

Sarcasta-Mom said...

What a great idea! I'm a huge sea glass hunter myself, as I use it in a lot of the jewelry I make. The boys haven't been to the beach yet, so this might be a good excuse to go if we can get a warm day here...

Scottie the 'cutie' said...

Wow are SOOO lucky to be living near a beach!! And your Mom sure has a good eye for pretty beach glass, rocks and shells! That is such a LOVELY idea on the DWB section! I would have to sniff around to see if Mom managed to get some cool shells from our trip to Ruby's...*grins*


Deetz said...

Hey Buddy
I think you are going to get alot more rocks and shells then you bargained for.......hehe
Its going to be so fun

Snowy and Crystal said...

stopping by to wish a wonderful weekend ^_^ Any fun plans you have?

Emily (Hector and Lola's mommy) said...

Pedro! You and Ziggy are super cute! Our mom freaks out, too whenever she can't find us. Although, most of the time we just follow her all around the house! Have a nice day! -Hector and Lola

Emily (Hector and Lola's mommy) said...

Pedro, we love your idea about having a dogs with blogs section on your table! We would love if we could send you a rock from Nashville! Can you just send us your email address so we can send you the picture, and your mailing address so we can send you the rock. Our email address is Thanks! -Hector and Lola

Tillybaby said...

Princess & Jazmine said...

Hi Pedro,
Thanks for welcoming us. You are so sweet! muwah xoxoxo!

GSD Adventures said...

Hi Pedro,

This is my first time visiting your blog! SO COOL! I headed over here from Joey's blog. I'm a dog with a blog too! I'd love to send you a shell from my first trip to the beach. Mom and Dad collected them as a fun memory and I'd love to share. Can you email me your address? I didn't see where to find your email address. What a cool idea!


Byron y Xinver said...

Hi Pedro.
We have just met your funny blog. We live near the seaside and we would like to send you something for your table. We'll email you. Bye.

Chef said...

Pedro, my Mama has rocks for you!! In fact, she just put some away in the cupboard and she'd love you to have them. Please email me your snail mail address. This is such a cool idea - you rock, Pedro!


Chester's Mom said...

Hi Pedro! It's a pleasure to meet you. I got here from Joey's site and if you don't mind, I'm gonna look for something special from my woods tonight on our walk. I'd love to send it to you. Could I have your address?
Email me at
Thanks a bunch!
I'm so excited-but I promise I won't send you anything gross!
Woofs and slobbers!

Chester's Mom said...

Hey Pedro! I have to apologize, I did not mean to lead you astray. I see you stopped by my place and thought it was warm where I live. Mom couldn't get a new picture of me last night for Wordless Wed. so I dug into my files some from last summer. Sigh! It's not warm enough yet for swimmin' but hopefully in a couple months. But we don't have your pile of snow either. Be careful and don't get lost in that tall white stuff.
Your new buddy

GoldenSamantha said...

Hey Pedro - I found you through Mango and think your idea is pawsome! It will take a few days, but we'll get out to the beach soon and see what we can find for you! I need to email your Mom if I can even find her email so I can snail mail my find(s?) Good to meet you!
Love and Licks,
xo Sammie

Pedro said...

For those of you looking for my email address, click on my profile. There is an email button there.


GSD Adventures said...

Hi Pedro,

We put our shell in the mail today. Say thanks to your mom for emailing us your snail mail address. We are still looking for those other pics to email to her.

Hey Pedro! So nice to meet you! We don't have any shells around here, we live in the mountains. DawgMom & DawgDaddy just bought us a new house on top of a ridge, we'll look for rocks there for you. We can send 3 since there are 3 of us! We'll pee-mail you for your address! We're adding you to our friend list too if that's ok.
Your new friends,

Feather, Darla & Pappy, the TN Bull Terrors

Cyber-sibes said...

Hi Pedro,

Woos & a-rooos,

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

That sounds like a great idea. We will be on the lookout the next time we go to the lake. We sure hope that the rain quits soon so we can get there..

JB's Big World said...

Well, it is a miracle! I got my rocks in a box, but we can't find your address. Can you have your mom email it to us?

Hana said...

Hi Pedro,
We saw JB posted about your sea shells/glass collection so we came over to see what this was all about. What a great project you have! I hope JB will keep us posted on your rock collection or I'll just have to come visit you often again!
