Monkeypups is proud to announce the latest addition to their line of organic biscuit flavors!

((drum roll))

Barkarific Blueberry!!!

Packed with plump, delicious organic blueberries, these treats are not only good, they're good for your dog in that blueberries are packed with antioxidants that battle against dangerous cancer-causing "free radicals" in the body. They're yummy, too!

May 2008 Yappy Hour

The Monkeypups will be out tonight at the May 2008 Yappy Hour to benefit Coastal Poodle Rescue in beautiful downtown Cocoa Village, Florida. This month's host is Ryan's Pizza, a local family-owned dog-friendly restaurant and one of Phinn & Veda's favorite hangouts.

The festivities begin at 5:30 and will continue on until 8:00 pm. This month's theme is "Patriotic Pooches!" Bring your camouflage-clad or red-white-and-blue wrapped pup on down and join in on the fun! There will be contests, a fun auction, a 50/50 raffle and LIVE entertainment! Woo hoo! Or as Veda would say, "Woo wooooooooooo!"

The Monkeypups are always on the lookout for cool new duds. It's all about the style, baby. These are brand spankin' new, and Phinn thinks they're totally cool. Sister Veda thinks she would look awesome in them, too. You know, the whole pink and black thing...

The Naked Twins attend lots of fundraising events for animal charities, and a few weekends ago they took part in the local Humane Society's Bark In The Park event to raise money for the care of homeless animals.

Isy (check her out on her blog here and her regular modeling gig here ) came along to support Monkeypups Organic Dog Bakery and to give people the rare opportunity to actually see and handle a Xoloitzcuintli, as most people incorrectly identify them as Chinese Cresteds or hairless chihuahuas. Isy loves to help people learn a little bit more about hairless dog breeds and how cool they are! Ok, ok, she also did it for the free cookies. ;-)

Veda Lure Coursing


Veda has found a new fun activity! Lure coursing is a sport involving dogs chasing an artificial lure around a course, typically 600 and 1000 yards (548 to 914 meters) long. Dogs with a high prey drive are usually fond of this sport, and Veda is no exception! She was so excited she kept trying to leap out of Mom's arms and run the course again and again!

"Lemme go, Mom!"

Phinn's first stab at formal obedience in a class environment is going well. He is going through some adolescent funkiness right now and is having a bit of a rough time with some self-confidence while away from Sissy and Mom. He was more relaxed this week and visited nicely with the other dogs and had lovely attention. Go Phinn! Go Phinn! Woot! Woot! Woot!

School Time!

This week has been very eventful for the Monkeypups. Phinn & Veda began formal obedience work. Yay! Though Mom taught obedience classes for many years and P & V have been very well socialized, there is no substitute for being in a formal class environment. So beginning this week, it got serious!

Phinn is going through a bit of a fear period right now and reacted with a bit of nervousness at the onset of class, but by the end of the hour was very relaxed. He has very nice attention and is very eager to please.

Veda is a bit of a hurricane, so I honestly expected her to mouth off to at least one or two dogs, but she was very bouncy and happy yet focused. Ah, liver is a magical thing. She took a particular liking to the poodle seated next to us. She did very well, and her main thing right now is wiggly butt and her Sit not being straight. I'd rather have super happy than super slow-mo any day of the week, so we'll work with it. ;-)
