Sister Saturday


My sissy and I love each other. We're always playing or snuggling. Sometimes I still furget and get a little too enthusiastic, but for the most part we've worked out the kinks and really play together well!

She GETS me!

It's wonderful when someone really GETS your personality, right? My dog sitter is like that. She really understands who I am. And to prove it, she gave this totally PAWESOME portrait to Momma today.


I try SO hard to be good, but....well, I'm working from a handicap. BOL!!

Stitch & ME!

 I'm a little late on posting it, but this weekend Momma had something called a "Stitch & Me." Well, you know, she used the other word for a female dog, but I knew who she was referring to. BOL! She and her furiends sat around, working on sewing or knitting or crocheting and talked a whole bunch. And, of course, paid their due tribute to the honorary of the day.


Auntie had me model as a unicorn. It's actually a stuffed carrot, but she thought it was funny putting it on my nose like a snowman. I showed her!!


Pigeon seemed to enjoy the day too, but I don't think she was having nearly as much fun.


Friends make the weekends so much better!

Tooth Out Tuesday

Momma says I got the title wrong, but I don't stick my tongue out much so I thought this would work better!

Nature Friday

Would you believe it?? Momma finally gets around to taking some Flower Friday pictures, and Flower Fridays are done!!! Well, Rosy's still hosting "Nature Fridays" over the winter, so we'll go under that.

Presenting...our most beeYOUtiful nature-y flowers...our new Memorial Garden.


This has been a slow work-in-progress because Momma still has that annoying boot on her foot PLUS we've had super-duper wet weather that made digging, uh, challenging. Furst we planted the rosebushes that we bought at LBR's Mums & Roses sale, then added rosemary in the back for remembrance. (It'll get a LOT bigger.) Then I closely snoopervised the placement of our angel memorial stones and St. Francis of Assisi to watch over them.

 "Looking pretty good, Momma!" 

Well-weathered stones for Cinderella and Scribbles that were out at our old house, plus the new ones for Casey and Jessie that hadn't come out yet. 


So there you have it! Momma wants to put a stone border around it eventually, but we're going to call it done for now! I'm happy to have a place to go honor my great-brothers and great-sisters that came before me. I may not have known them, but I know the pieces they left in Momma's heart!

Torture!

Can you believes that after I've been SUCH a good girl, Momma dragged me off yesterday to be tortured?!?!


She got this kerazy idea that just because I might pee in the house a million times a day, that might mean I have a bladder infection. So she dragged me off to the dogtor, where they poked and prodded me and stole my pee! The nerve!! The verdict? I don't have a bladder infection, but I DO seem to have some allergies and an ear infection. Okay, cool, we're done, right?


NO! After we got home and I thought everything was FINE, Momma pinned me on the couch and poured medicine burning acid into my ears!! And she did it AGAIN this morning!! Can you believes her?? Someone send help. I can't handle much more of this.

Almost Wordless Wednesday



Here's the not-wordless part: We're lighting some candles to celebrate Diwali with YAM Aunty!


Diwali is a time for inner illumination and  a time to reflect on what has gone before. It's a pawticularly appropriate day for that after our elections here in the US -- we have a lot to think about and ponder what we've done right and how we can do better in the future.

Let it go!

Look, Pigeon, I know it was lots of fun.

 "It WAS! The kids will come by again tonight, right?"

Momma says it's just once a year, and now that it's November we have to put the Howl-o-ween decorations away.

"But...why? I like the decorations. They're pretty. And comfy." 

I don't know, it's one of those weird human rules! But we have to put the treat bowls away, Pigeon.

"Nope. Viva la Howl-o-ween!"

Happy Howl-o-ween!

Hi, everyone!! I'm enjoying my very FURST Howl-o-ween!! Furst, you have to see my beeYOUtiful costume!


Pigeon says she's going as a spoiled cat this year. She has her costume nailed too!!


Next, it's time for our spooooooooky story for Blogville's Haunted Howloween. Ooooooooh!!!


It was a dark and stormy night. Thunder crashed across the sky, and I wasn't wearing a thundershirt! I tried to snuggle next to Momma to make her feel better, but she kept standing up and doing weird things like cleaning. It was like she was POSSESSED! And then....she said, "Don't worry, Matilda. How about a little treat to make you feel better?"

Well, that was sure to work, right? So I bravely got up, despite the thunder ALL AROUND ME, and ran to the treat jar. I sat perfectly, and Momma opened the jar, and....

THE TREAT JAR WAS EMPTY!!!!!!!!!!!


OMD, OMD, I just skeered myself!! It's just a story, Matilda, it's just a story! That could never happen!! Um....I think I'm going to go check on our treat jar JUST in case. Be sure to join the rest of the Blogville Haunted Howl-o-ween for more skeery stories.

Happy National Cat Day!

"Pssty! Hey, goggie, you awake?" 

"Goggie, wake up!" 

"Wha---? I sleeping, Pigeon!" 

"Today is National Cat Day! You're supposed to be paying attention to meeeee!" 

"Don't be upset, sissy! I would never furget such an impawtant day." 

"Momma furgot."
"She didn't?! Well, she's going to remedy that RIGHT NOW." 

"The throne is acceptable. I demand tribute of tuna and feather toys."

Happy National Cat Day to all my kitcat furiends, but most especially to my big sister Pigeon, who is the bestest furiend and sister any pup could ask for!

Spooooky Flower Friday!

Since this Flower Friday is part of LLB Backyard's No Tricks, Just Treats for Shelters weekend, I thought we'd better make it an extra spoooooky one. So introducing our special guest stars!


Ichabod, Elvira, and Raven are showing off our beeYOUtiful flowers in the front yard. We got all of them from LBR's big Mums & Roses fundraiser!


Fossil is showing off his favorite mum. He loves the bright yellow to brighten up our dreary fall days, especially with all the RAIN we've been having!


Happy Flower Friday, everybody!!

Sleepover!

Oh boy oh boy, guys, guess what I got to do this weekend?? I had a sleepover with my foster momma!! It was so much fun! She kept exclaiming over how much I'd grown. Of course, I'm a BIG GIRL now! Here's a picture of me and my foster sissy Gala when I lived there, and then one of us now.



 I'm taller than she is now! Ooooh, she did NOT like that. BOL!! But it was grreat to see her again. We played and played and played and played. Foster Momma said I don't have an "off" switch. BOL!


We had such a pawesome time. I'm glad my furever home is so close to my foster home so I can keep seeing Foster Momma. Momma said that Casey used to get visits from HIS foster momma all the way up until the day before the went to the Rainbow Bridge, almost ten years later. I love the idea of keeping relationships for that long. <3

Rain rain, GO AWAY!

We're pretty sick of all the rain here in Texas lately. It's rare to say that, because we're usually in a drought and are thrilled to get rain. But it's been almost nonstop for over a week, and I'm TIRED of it! Momma's mad because I keep pottying in the house, but I don't want to go out in all THAT. Ugh.

Pigeon found a cozy spot to curl up to next to Momma and hide from the rain.

Remembering Casey

Today would have been Casey's 11th birthday.


Momma still thinks about him a lot and gets leaky. I try to sneak up and lick her or nibble her arm so she laughs instead. It's hard work! But today we're remembering him with a smile instead of tears. And look at the amazing birthday present we got!


This paperweight was made by an LBR volunteer. Momma bid on it in an LBR auction, and then it was made specially for her. Do you want to know what makes it so special? See the white swirls in there? Those are Casey's ashes! Yup, this is a very very special memorial stone, and Momma has it on our bedside table now so he can be with us for always! Isn't that pretty pawesome?


Happy barkday, Casey! I wish I'd known you. I pawmise I'm taking good care of Momma for you while you're at the Bridge.


Edit: We were actually making this post for tomorrow, Casey's birthday. But Momma accidentally hit "publish" before setting the date, and it's too confusing trying to edit it. So it's just a day early. :P

Weird weather


Furiends, I'm not sure who broke the sky, but I do NOT approve. It keeps LEAKING, and Momma refuses to turn it off so I can potty in peace. SO rude. And it's not just leaking a little. Oh no, it comes down in great big torrents like God furgot to turn the faucet off upstairs. On Saturday, while Momma was off celebrating her barkday, we had some pretty skeery wind come howling through the leaks too, even going kind of twirly shaped. I didn't like that a bit. Luckily the twisty part didn't come near our house, but it did hit our town's brand-new high school across town and cause some damage. Yikes! And even after all that, no one's fixed things. This morning, it was still leaking AND now it's cold. Honestly.


I think I'm just going to curl up in some blankies until somebody sends the repairman in.


PeeS: Momma says THANK YOU for all the nice barkday wishes. She had a good time and said it was a grreat pawty, even though not a single person gave her a bone or a squeaky toy. Doesn't sound so grreat to me!

Happy barkday, Momma!

Today is a BIG day! It's my Momma's barkday!! She's turning a BIG number with a zero on it, so I'm having to give her LOTS of kisses and reassure her she's not old and falling apart. Well...I mean, she's falling apart a little, around the feet. But -- okay, let's not talk about that. Happy barkday, Momma!!

Flower Friday

So even though we have BRAND NEW FLOWERS, Momma furgot AGAIN to take my picture for Flower Friday. Honestly. I need a new secretary please.

In the meantime, here's a random flower picture from online that made us smile this morning instead.

We rocked the plant stand!

OMD, guys, I got SO much pawesome smell mail back from Mums and Roses on Saturday! LBR volunteers worked SO hard to put together a pawesome display and sell lots and lots and lots of flowers and pumpkins.



 The set-up crew!

I also got news about the event from another source -- Ichabod and Elvira! They woke up from their long nap in the garage to go out and guard LBR's pumpkin patch before guarding OUR house from Howl-o-ween hooligans. Don't they look grreat?

Ichabod

Elvira 

Momma also came home with some beeYOUtiful plants. She's a little slow in planting them because of her silly foot, but she got the ones in our front yard done. Hopefully she'll get to the backyard soon.

She pulled out two boring green bushes and put the pink ones in instead. The mums are going to stay in their pots!

In all, LBR raised nearly $17k for the dogs in just one day!!! Way to go, LBR volunteers!!!
