Cousins on Monday

Monday, Monday - for a change we have to say it is a good Monday because the horrible heat dome has lifted, and we have a dryer and cooler day with temps in the low 80s.

As our title shows, this is supposed to be a blog about US, The Woos!!!  But Mom convinced us to let her share a little about our cousins and the birthday party this weekend for Dad, our BIL, and our cousin Duncan.

Mom had to snap this pic of the cake very quickly as our human sister was just about ready to slice into it.  It was BIG and delicious and was served with ice cream.  We only know THAT because Mom told us. We did not get to go to the party or have any of the cake.  But Mom felt sorry for us and let us have some ice cream when she and Dad got home.

No human pics, but here is one of our cousins.

Awww - this is the birthday boy Duncan.  He is a shih tzu and he turned three on Saturday. 

 Awww - here he is with his younger brother Dexter. Do they remind you of any pups you know, like maybe Jakey, Arty, and Rosy?  Mom thinks Rosy must be related to Dexter somehow or other. And Duncan looks a bit like Jakey (and maybe even Angel Bilbo).

They are both very nice boys, well-behaved and sweet.  We are happy to have them as our cousins.  They live with the two boy grands Tyler and Brady.

Wait a minute, Mom.  Who is THAT?  He doesn't look like any cousin that we know!!!

Well, Mom tells us that we have to welcome a new cousin. 

Awww!!!  Meet Murphy!!!  He was adopted by the other grands (Kaeleigh, Jack, and Cambrie) on Saturday.  He comes from a local rescue shelter.  He was found running the streets in early July.  No one has claimed him so now he is Murphy.  He is a mix, but everyone seems to have a different idea of what he might be.  Mom thinks he might have some Lab, Rottweiler, Boxer, Dalmatian, and who knows what else.  He is on the skinny side, but we know the his new forever family will put some good weight on him.

He loves his new sister, Ruby.  Ruby has appeared here before.  The two of them are getting along so very well.  They play and play all day long.  Welcome, Murphy.

So that's our Monday news.  We wish we could tell you there is a new family member here too, but Mom says we three are all she needs:)

Silly Sibe Express

The Sibe Express (?) takes a rest at the station.
Looks like the caboose may have derailed.
Get back on the track, Misty.

Hang on there, I just needed a little break from all that backup work as the caboose.  And then this dinosaur caught my eye.

Wake up, Sleeper Car Timber - your snooter is in a very precarious location:)

Oops, looks like the engine has conked out.
Expect delays for your departure.

We want to wish a happy birthday to our Dad, our human brother-in-law Justin, our shih tzu cousin Dexter, and of course, sweet Rosy from LLB in Our Backyard.  We hope they all have a fantastic day.

Feverishly Hot Friday Funny Fotos

Day three of our very hot temperatures.  We all have our own style for keeping cool.

 Timber style - back leg wall supports

Misty style - front leg wraparound.

Lightning - content to just lie down in a much more modest fashion with a cute little front paw tuck.  

Sidenote:  Lightning has had a bit of a setback this week and is struggling to put any weight on his bad leg.  Here's hoping some more rest will help.

Wordy Wednesday with Lightning

It may be really HOT outside today, but I have the best of both worlds.
Nothing like a nice sunpuddle during my nap . . .  AND. . . 

. . . if you look closely under my snooter, you can see that a wonderful cool air vent is blowing out the coolest of air right underneath me:)

Serene Sunday Selfies

Happy Sunday to everyone!!!

Here we are for you, the Happy Sibes!!!

I am a happy boy.  Why am I happy?  Mom says I am always happy.  Life is good.

The more serious Misty - HA!!! There is nothing serious about me.  I LOVE to have fun.  But today I am being a little pensive as I contemplate my third birthday coming along soon.

And of course, happy Lightning!!!  Why could I possibly be happy?  Well, I say just because!!!

We decided to let Mom include a selfie of this handsome horse since she worked so hard to create this puzzle AND there were NO missing pieces.  He looks pretty happy too.

Hope you all have a wonderful and serene Sunday.

Funny Foto Friday

Silly Mom, taking my picture with the sun in my eyes!!!

Mom, you need to remember my shades if you want a photo when the sun is shining so brightly.

There!!!  That's much better.

Some of you have been wondering how I am doing.  I am OK.  There really hasn't been any change in my condition. Mom says she thinks that my second knee injury is now healed about as well as it it is going to get.  There is a lot of popping going on in that joint when I walk, not all the time, but when I am too tired to walk any more, it sounds like there is a Fourth of July celebration going on inside my knee.  I don't put a lot of weight on that leg, but I do try.  I lost three nails on the other leg from dragging my feet. Mom made me wear socks for a while when I was outside so my paw could heal.  It is better now, and the nails are very slowly growing back.  The dragging is still there so the nails will probably break again.  I don't like to walk very far when Mom takes me out on my leash, but she says I have to keep my joints moving. So she takes me out 8-10 times a day.  I know it makes it hard for her with her busy schedule, but she says I am worth it.  I continue to take my pain medication and joint supplements.  Misty and Timber do a good job of keeping me company.  I just wish I could go out in the yard to run and explore with them.  I keep trying to sneak out with them when Mom lets them outside, but even as old as she is, she manages to keep me inside.  So that's the scoop.  Time for me to go rest up for my next stroll outside.
