Nature Friday

I finally have a Nature Friday post! Momma is TERRIBLE about remembering to get pics for it. But today we have some beautimous flowers and even more beautimous ME!

This is me posing with some of the flowers we got at Mums & Roses, LBR's big fundraising plant sale, this year!

Happy barkday at the Bridge!

Today would have been my great-brother Casey's 12th birthday. He was a very, very, very loved pup, and Momma still thinks of him often. Happy barkday at the Bridge, Angel Casey!

We got your back, St. Francis!

St. Francis of Assissi is the patron saint of animals. But Momma says sometimes he's busy, so we have to help out! This morning, she was driving to work when she saw a dog running along the road straight towards the busy highway. She stopped and called to the dog, hoping it wouldn't run off. Nope, she wiggled and ran straight to Momma, then jumped in the car when Momma asked if she wanted a car ride.

She hung out in the back while Momma read her tag and called the number. No one answered! Momma drove around for a while, but then said she had to get to work because she had a hearing. So she took Mikka home and was setting up a spot in the spare room when Mikka's momma called. YAY!!

I wish I'd had a chance to meet Mikka. Momma said she was super friendly and calm, not to mention very lovely in her Howl-o-ween scarf! But we're very glad she got home to her own momma and the two skin-kids who were crying. So don't worry, St. Francis, we've got you covered.

Mums & Roses

This weekend was LBR's big Mums & Roses sale, one of our biggest fundraisers of the year! The pawesome volunteers of LBR worked tirelessly in the Texas heat to set up a gazillion mums, roses, pumpkins, and other fall plans. (Our cool front arrived last night! It was in the 90s on Saturday during the sale!)

They were lucky enough to get a guest appearance by a super famous blogger.

Always happy to meet my adoring public!

I helped Momma pick out plants -- which you'll see on Nature Friday! -- and I finally got my microchip put in. Momma feels bad because it's taken her so long to get it done, but now I'm all safe! I was extremely brave and didn't even flinch. If Momma says I cried and tried to pull away, she's LYING!!

Anyways, as usual, LBR totally rocked the plant stand!! We raised nearly $20,000, which is going to help big this year after all our legal battles! Huge thanks to all my LBR aunties and uncles who worked so hard at the sale, and especially Uncle Ken and Uncle Waylon of Roses USA who donate all these plants to us!

New family members!

Whoa! Momma and I went out on our walk this morning, and I found out that our family expanded overnight!

Momma says that's our new door manager Charlotte, with her door boxers Sluggo and Long John. Apparently we turn into a happening place in October and need some extra management.

That's Fossil. He hangs out on the porch to skeer away anyone who gets too close.

And then there's the trouble-makers! The big guy is Ichabod, the girl with the bone is Elvira, and the kitty is Raven. Momma says if they're causing mischief in our yard, they keep other trouble-makers from coming in. Wow, I'm sure glad all of these guys are around to protect us! Who knew October got so skeery?

Do any of you have new family members move in during October?
