Rolling Along on Thankful Thursday

Phantom here to share some of my excitement today.  It doesn't take too much to get an old guy like me excited:)

Mom said we had to hurry up and get in the car and roll along so we could hurry up and roll along and get back home.  See if you can find any logic in that thought:)

Mom and I rolled along off to the V.E.T. to get my weekly Adequan injection - and of course, to get a few treats on the way out of the building.  As you can see, I am pretty happy about that part of my rolling along trip.

Now for the why we had to hurry up and go and then hurry up and get back home part.  Our neighborhood streets were scheduled to day for the ridiculous "chip and seal" paving they do to our roads.  Mom and Dad think it is a waste of money because it never lasts very long and leaves lots of pebbles on the roadways.  We had to hurry up and roll along and get home so we could park the sibemobile back in the garage before all the trucks and tar and pebbles and stuff got rolling along on our street.

I am the only one of us sibes who gets to go near the front door when it is open, something about young pups wanting to get at the squirrels and rabbits so fast that they might bolt right through the screen door.  Not me, here I am checking out the work.  The tar and pebbles have all been spread and it is time for the rollers to do their part.

Hey, Mom, I think those guys might need some supervision out there.  I think I would do a great job as a supervisor - how about rolling along over here and opening this screen door?

What do you mean?  I am not quite THAT trustworthy????  You think I might run off???

Now why would I ever want to do THAT???

You know I love my home and I am ever so thankful for my loving family:)  OK, I will just supervise from here as long as you give me some turkey liver treats.

Note from Momster: Phantom's tail is "hanging" in there - the bitter orange seems to keep him from licking the area.  He only has to wear the inflatable ring overnight.  YAY!!!

Watching and Waiting on Wednesday

Please do not disturb me now, Mom!

Very busy here - I am waiting and watching.

Even when I am outside, I must wait and watch!

Over there, see!  There is a new boy on the block.  That's his puppy pen over there.  He isn't outside now, but maybe soon.

Still waiting and watching for him to come out to play.

(Yes, the neighbors had a sad day last week as they said farewell for now to their 13 year old Golden boy Tank.  But their boxer Layla was very sad and lonely, so they brought her a new boy boxer, as yet unnamed.  Lightning is very interested in welcoming the new little guy:)

And so he continues to wait and watch.

Mom, can't you try to get a pic of him to show everyone?  She says she will do that as soon as she gets a chance.

Silly boy - I think we need our own new puppy:)

Sorry we haven't been posting and commenting the last few days.  Mom says it has been a very busy time her.

Remembering Greta

We are joining with all of Blogville today in remembering Sweet Greta of the Idaho Pug Ranch.

Greta, we did not know you well and not for very long, surely not long enough. But we do know that your passing has left a huge void in our community as well as many friends who loved you dearly, including us.

We found this poem that we think Greta might want us to hear. We are sure the unknown author has penned Greta's thoughts perfectly.


I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.
I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways
Of happy times, and laughing times, and bright and sunny days.
I’d like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun
Of happy memories that I leave, when life is done.

As we all know too well, one never knows what tomorrow may bring, so enjoy today at its fullest.
