Tuesday Talk

Thunder reporting for the day:

A lot of our furiends have been posting shots of their skies and pretty clouds. We snapped a couple of ours while we were out for our walk yesterday in some very hot and humid temps. Here are a couple of pretty ones.

And this shot to the west forebodes what was coming overnight. We had pounding rain and ferocious winds. A tornado touched down in Drexel, Missouri, just southeast of us, with lots of damage. Mom was worried that her daughter's baby was going to decide to make his grand entrance overnight but luckily he made the right choice to stay tucked inside for a while longer.

So, back to our walk, here I was walking along with my brother Phantom, thinking we were going to have a great opportunity to do some squirrel patrol. We are crossing one of the trippy trappy bridges that leads us along the trail we usually follow.

We stopped to check out the creek to see if any of those pesky critters were looking for a drink when first thing I knew, Mom got that urge - you know, the pluck-a-holic one.

How embarassing - here I am stuck out in public with THIS going on!!!

And do you think she does it to Phantom??? Of course, not, she says he isn't ready yet.

And then HE has the nerve to give me this look - laughing at me is NOT nice.

Woos, Thunder Dunder

Lovely pictures of the skies. Looks pretty hot, same thing here too though it did rain for a bit in the morning. Very nice pic of you and your brother, love the smiling pic of Phantom! Thanks for sharing and have a lovely day!


Mack said...

We can tell your soon-to-be nephew is smart already. He knows when NOT to make his grand entrance!

Phantom looks like the cat that swallowed the canary!

Princess Eva and Brice said...

We love to look at clouds and try and find things in the shapes.

Poor Thunder! But soon it will be Phantom's turn and then you can laugh at him!

Just found your blog!!! I'm new to this world but I am so excited to find other husky owners out there! We have a rescued husky who makes my heart pitter patter every time I see him... even if I have to vacuum 14 times day. :) Your dogs are absolutely beautiful... and look like they are much better behaved than mine :)

You look outstanding, guys!

It just looks like you had local flurries. :)

Hey Thunder!

The sky pictures are beautiful. I'm sorry you got plucked out in public. Phantom's smiling picture is very cute! When its his turn to be plucked you can laugh right back!

Happy Trails

Very pretty sky pictures! Every once in a while we take a walk and see a bunch of fluff on the grass and wonder how it got there - now we know - the pluckaholics strike again!

See ya!

Oh that smile picture at the end is brilliant. I love it.

Mum said she just loves sky pictures, and yours are perfect.Dont like the sound of that weather though.. ugg.

A new baby, mum said she must have missed that, how lovely. Do you know what it is going to be?

Mum is getting two new great grandbeans. ( the firt great for her) One is going to be a boy and is due September. The other too early to tell in December.

I didn't realise you could pluck the hairs out. Fancy your mum doing that in front of others. phhh mums.

Lovely post and thanks for sharing the sky.

Hugs GJ xx

Lovely pictures of the sky. Beans can be so embarrassing. ~S,S,C & F

Martha Basset said...

Lovely pictures of the skies! We can understand it must be very difficult to have people plucking you as if you were a chicken! Your brother should not be laughing - it will be his turn next.
glad the tornado didnt come to visit you!

ps good tip for Bailey about not digging in the graveyard!!!

Britny said...

Hahhahaah nice pics Skye is hiding worried that she is due a good plucking

Martine said...

HAHAHAH that's what your brother is for... to give you funny looks!

Glad you grandbaby didn't come during a tornado!

The Army of Four said...

Ha roo, you guys! I"m sure glad the new grandkidlet stayed put for the night! We are praying for a safe, uneventful delivery!
It was quite the night last night, wasn't it? I made sure Mom was awake for it all. Pretty nice of me, don't you think? Ha roo roo roo!

Sitka, Tia, & Cornelia Marie said...

WOW! Those sky photos were awesome!

Rocky Creek Scottie Adventures said...

We had to laugh at Phantom's laugh!! Too cute!!! And we think all Mom's must be alike. We can hardly climb up on Mom's lap without her finding something to push or pull - she is always finding a hair that needs to be plucked out.

Have a fantastic evening.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

A drive by plucking. Call the ASPCA. And get us help too!

Lorenza said...

Hi, friends!
Pretty clouds!
But a tornado sounds scary!
It is not funny what your mom did to you Thunder! Yes, you will have the chance to laugh at Phantom when he gets the "treatment"
Kisses and hugs

Allison (Dog Mom) said...

Oh, goodness. Don't mommee's know it's embarrassing to strip in public? Thank goodness you didn't end up totally nekkid.

Mochi and Mommy said...

Hello there!

Lovely picture of skies!

Oh dear - is that all your flurries Thunder? Our trixie has similar flurry problem too - she's been helping herself by scratching against the metal gates - we get all her flurries all over the place!

Tracey and Huffle said...

Oh poor Thunder. You'll have to get your revenge somehow.

We are very glad you survived the storm okay! I heard it was very bad!

Katherine and Pippa said...

Hey Thunder you are having a bad time with that plucking thing. What is it with these women that they can't resist pulling out chunks of our fur?


Mango said...

How awful to have mom pulling at your furs out in public. At least she left some nice nesting materials for the birds.

Tornado! Yikes!


Huskee and Hershey said...

LOL!! Pluck-a-holic??
Tell Phantom not to laugh at you cos it'd be his turn someday.. :)

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh gosh, Thunder - how could she do that to you in public! I'm blushing for you!! Although I also have some husky and malamute friends and they say their humans do that to them too! They say there is too much fur stuff and so the humans like to leave it in the park, rather than at home or in the garden! :-) Gosh - you do have a LOT of fur...maybe if I had that much, I wouldn't need my fleece pyjamas!

Pedro said...

Op Pack,

Ha! My mom just gets out the razor and shaves Ziggy right down! He likes it though. Luckily I have short fur so I don't get the shave. I really like your walkin video!


Pedro said...

Oh, by the way! We got a new bi-ped in our family on 6/10/09! My mom's nephew's wife had a little girl, 6 pounds, 8 ounces. So cute I could bite her!


Tweedles -- that's me... said...

Hi pups
I have been having troubles getting a comment onto your bloggie lately, so trying again and I found these beautiful cloud shows. How gorgeous. Thank you soooo much!
You pups are so lucky to have such a nice sky, and you doggies are the cutest!
