My Pal Wally

Wally loves to chew sticks!
Over the past few days I've received so many great comments about my pal Wally that I'm sharing another photo of him today.

Tuesdays are better with a Bulldog, don't you agree?

Bulldogs and Baseball Are the Best

Wally loves baseball
Here's my pal Wally playing baseball. He loves playing ball...especially when there is a human ready to play fetch. Even though he is grown up now, Wally is still a kid to me, he still has lots of puppy energy.

Being the top dog on our canine sports team, I tend to show Wally how things work and how to play. Whether its riding a skateboard, running on the beach or playing ball we bulldogs like to stick together and watch out for one another.

I love all sports, but Bulldogs and Baseball are a great American combination, don't you think?

My Lil Sis Rose

Lots of people ask me about my lil sister Rose. She's multi-talented and loves her pink tutus. We get along really well and share almost everything at home. I'm protective of her to strangers because she's so special.

From her pink tutus to to pink skateboard she is all girl. But she is also quite an athlete on the surf and snow too. My human pals love to see her popping balloons too, which is still one of her favorite games to play. I'm really proud of Rose, and the young "lady" she has grown up to be.

I think Rose is one of a kind. Don't you agree?

Good to the last Lick!

Tillman enjoys Delectable Delights stews from Natural Balance
Yesterday my dad gave me these new 'Delectable Delights' stews to try. My pals at Natural Balance Pet Foods have made the most delicious stews a dog could ask for.

I'm not much of a product pitch dog, but what can I say...it was so good I couldn't even wait for dad to put it in a bowl.  I only wish my face weren't so flat. There was one morsel my tongue couldn't reach.

If you see me out and about, tell me which one is your favorite flavor.

Oh by the way, the best part is my feline friends can also try the Delectable Delights cat stews also. So bark or meow at your mom and dad to get you some to try! They are good to the last lick.

My Collectable Trading Cards

I just love being a famous celebrity dog. It is such a blast to meet fans, ride my skateboard and make kids smile too. I'm especially proud of my Collectable Trading Cards too. Lots of people write to me asking how to get one. Usually I have them at special events and give them away FREE. But over the next few days I'll be giving some away to fans online... so stay tuned to my Pinterest boards, Twitter posts and Facebook took. Oh yeah, and right here on my blog for more info on how to get one of my cards for FREE!

I plan to run around like a maniac and have a blast with my fur-pals. Do you and your pets have anything fun planned for the weekend?

Photo Captions Welcome!

This photo was taken of me yesterday while I was enjoying a delicious bowl of cold water. There I was slurping away when all of a sudden I hear the snap of the paparazzi (what else is new) capturing my every move). Sheesh what does a superstar bulldog like me need to do to get a break?

My caption for this photo was: "Sure I'll share some my my nice cold water...You don't mind a little dog drool in it, do you?"

Anyone have a better caption for this picture of me? I might just have a surprise for a random submission from here and on my Facebook page~

Being Wacky is Fun

Tillman with his dad Ron and two pals
Last weekend I skated at an event called 'MINI Takes The States' in Los Angeles and had a lot of fun showing off for the fans. Later on I was clowning around with my dad Ron and two pals. What do you think of my fake mustache? Do you still recognize me? Bwahhahaha

At the Mini Takes The States Event

Check this out! Last Saturday I was invited to skateboard at the 2012 MINI Takes the States event in Los Angeles, which was the last stop on the MINI tour. I got a chance to show off my rad skateboarding skills to all the fans in attendance. It was a fun way to meet car enthusiasts and wag tails.

Sometimes I get to do the coolest stuff. I had a blast skating that day. I loved all the snacks that came my way...not to mention that awesome "new car smell" that was wafting up in the air that day. Bwwwwahhhaaaaahaaa.

Ah, I crack myself up.

TDIF...Ready for the Weekend!

TDIF. (Thank Dog its Friday). I'm so ready for the weekend I can taste it. Must be the heat, it makes the week seem so much longer don't you think? I had a lot of fun with my new Cool Cats Gallery on Pinterest yesterday...got a bunch of cool pictures to pin on that board of my crazy cat fans! Tomorrow is Caturday so I'll be back again with more Cool Cats stuff. But right now,  I'm thinking about asking dad to borrow the RV. I could use a relaxing weekend to kick back and chill.

How about you? Any weekend plans with your pets?

Get Your Kitty on Tillman's Cool Cats Gallery on Pinterest

You know that I hang out with a bunch of very cool dogs. Norman the Scooter Dog, Sully, Rose and Wally...not to mention my surf dog buddies too. But did you know I dig cats? I have more than a few feline friends, and they've been meowing at me that is was high time I gave them some attention. So here goes.

I started a Cool Cats Gallery board on my Pinterest account. If you want your cat to be considered to be added to my Cool Cats Photo Gallery on Pinterest, then post your kitty's photo on my Facebook wall. Or, you could also just Tweet a photo of your cat to me @TillmanSkates on Twitter. Each day I'll pick a few cats lucky enough to make it to my Cool Cats Gallery. This isn't a contest or anything, and the choices of which photos I pin to the board are all mine...depending on where my paw lands. But if I think your cat looks like a Cool Cat, then your kitty's photo just might make it! So what are you waiting for? Jump out of the litter box, and post a pawtagraph to my Facebook wall!

What? You're not following me on Pinterest yet? What are you waiting for! Join in the fun!

(Im) Patiently Waiting...

Tillman waits for his Skimboard
What was that Carly Simon song? "A-N-T-I-C-I-P-A-T-I-O-N, it's making me wait. It's keeping me waiting...." Well that's exactly how I felt here in this photo. 

Here's me and dad at the beach while he's holding my skim board up high. Meanwhile I'm raring to go, barking my head off ready for the launch! C'Mon Dad!!!!!

It is a total game we play where he does this and gets me all charged up. I love it. What about you and your pets? Do your pets ever get impatient waiting for something?

Hanging Out With Furry Pals

My buddy Carl, a Rottweiler furry pal.
Here's me and my buddy 'Carl', a Rottweiler from Santa Barbara. We love playing in the surf, especially on hot summer days like we've had lately. Even though I'm a tough Bulldog, I have lots of other friends who are other breeds of dogs. Heck I even have a few cat friends. Speaking of cats, I started a board on my Pinterest account called Cool Cats and will be adding photos of cat pals I've virtually met in the Blogosphere. More on that another day.

Do your pets have other fur-pals they play with in person? I'd be interested to hear from you, leave a comment with your story.

Keeping Dogs Cool in the Summer

Whew its been hot! Here are Rose (with Steve), Sully (with Eric) and Norman the Scooter Dog (with Karen) all taking a break in the shade.

Remember that when it is hot, always give your dogs a rest if you are out walking. Carry a collapsible water bowl to provide access to plenty of fresh water during walks.

What do your dogs to to cool down? Run through the sprinkler? Drink from the hose? Chill in the shade? Share your story here with a comment below.

My Pal Wally

Time sure does fly by. I remember when this pup was born. Say hello to my pal Wally. You might remember him as the lil pup on the first season of my TV show, Who Let the Dogs Out. He is growing up fast. His mom Lexi Beermann has been training him to ride a skateboard. I might have to race him one of these days.

Happy 4th of July

Today is Independence Day here in the USA. At my home, we celebrate the 4th of July at the beach, where I try to sneak a bite of a hot dog if no one is looking! Dad is extra careful at night to keep us safe, away from the noise of fireworks that can scare us easily. I'm pretty tough and can handle it, but Sully and Rose get spooked by the loud noise of fireworks. So whatever you do tonight, be sure to look after your pets and keep them safe. More pets get lost on the 4th of July in the USA than any other day, because the loud noises cause some dogs to run in fear. Be sure they are wearing id tags, and keep them locked up at night inside the house, not in the yard! Oh and one other thing, resist the temptation to bring your dog to see the fireworks display. We'd rather be home where its nice and quiet. Other than that have a Happy 4th!

Heat Reminder for Your Pets

Much of the USA is experiencing very hot weather at the moment, so I thought this would be a good time to share a heat reminder for your pets!

Whether day or night, it's hotter than you think in the car. Even at just 70 F (21C) degrees, it can be fatal to leave a pet inside a car for just a few minutes. Never leave your pet inside a car--even with the windows open the glass windows magnify the heat levels. Pets can't cool down and can die very quickly. If you cannot bring them inside with you when you leave the car, it might be best to leave them at home where it is cool. Also, be sure to have plenty of fresh water for your pets when you travel. Pick up a travel bowl at any pet specialty store, they collapse and are easy to use when walking hiking or traveling.

Don't risk your pet's life, be safe and protect them at all times!

Golfing at Pebble Beach

Bulldogs golfing? I figured, we spend  full day skim boarding at Spanish Bay in Carmel, why not spend some time on the green. We made our way to one of the pristine golf courses in the area and even found a golf cart. I hopped up and was at the wheel, while Rose worked the pedals. Sully kept arguing about which way to go. All I wanted was to find the water hazards to cool off and splash around. Rose was fascinated by the golf balls, but dad kept her away from them so she wouldn't swallow them. (He's good like that).

A day of golf wasn't too bad. We said hi to lots of people, stopped for fan photos and even got a few belly rubs along the fairway. Hey this sport is pretty good.

Chillin' Out at The Beach

I mentioned yesterday that I was up in Pebble Beach with my dad, Rose, Sully and the rest of the family. We had an awesome day, too. Today we're at the Spanish Bay. Earlier this morning it was a little foggy but it finally burned off and we were ready to go! Dad took this photo of me before hit the surf. I had just been barking up a storm, begging for my skim board, but he wanted to get this picture me for the blog before I got all wet n wild in the sea! Pebble Beach is such a great place to hang. I love digging in the beach sand and getting my paws all muddy. Try it sometime!
