Monday's Miscellany

We are a bit behind on posts and we have lots to show you. Let's get some of that taken care of now.

Look at this lovely award we got from Scylla.

The translation means "Your Blog Doesn't Stink" (Mom says she isn't sure that is quite right but we'll go with it) and the only rule is to link to the blogger that gave it to you (that's Scylla at Alasandra, Two Cats and a Dog) and pass it on to 5 others!

Scylla was so nice, here is what she said in making her award to us: Phantom & Thunder (I also wants to give it to Princess Dakota, even though she is an angel at the Rainbow Bridge) from The Chronicle of Woos. Wasn't it so nice of her to include Dakota?

We would like to offer this award to all our readers and hope that you can add it to your blog too.

And look at this great badge that Checkers shared with his followers.

We thought this was a great way to let blogger friends know how much we appreciate their visits and comments and posts. So with Checkers' permission, we want to share this badge with all of you too. Help yourself and post it on your blog.

We are several days behind in our posts but we wanted to share our participation in the Zoolatry Fashion and Friends Friday Fun. Thunder found a great bargain at the Summer Clearance Sale

And he put it to good use as he watched over Phantom.

Thunder also participated in the Rocky Creek Scotties and Java's Stick Out Your Tongue contest with this silly photo.

They surprised us with this very nice badge.

Some of you wondered about those "sticks" we were having in our recent post.

They are actually some very tasty twists made with pollock skin, sushi and sweet potato. Eva and Brice sent them to us for coming the closest to guessing Bricey Boy's weight.
They are really very yummy.

Here are the boys hoping to get another one or two of them.

One more thing to share with you. Norwood wondered about something. In one of his comments he said, "I'm wondering though.. do phantom and thunder ever blink? Photo/video please to prove it."

So Norwood, this one's for you.

We have a lot more things to post here, more presents, more awards. But we will save those for another day. Thank you to all our furiends for the fun and smiles you bring to us every day.

Oh, what's that, you are wondering how Phantom is doing. Well, he is totally shirtless now. Mom let him go without it all weekend and overnight on Saturday. He is leaving the incision alone. AND the best news, he is eating so much better for the past few days. Mom is testing a grain free food on him, just a few pieces of kibble added to his regular kibble each feeding. He seems to like it a lot, but she knows from past experience that this may not last, and she also has some other options coming in the mail. But it is so good to see him eating twice a day. He is also back to enjoying a good walk. Maybe we'll get a video of that done this week.

Woos, the OP Pack

Khwite the nice mixture of MM!

Khongrats and such!

Paws khrossed Phantom decides THIS food is the keeper!


Princess Eva and Brice said...

Each of their pics is more beautiful than the last. And great to see Phantom smiling (even though he still had his shirt on).

Which grain-free kibbles are you trying? Momma uses some of the G-F (Orijen, Merrick Before Grain etc) as training treats for us. Something about small pieces, easy and good for us.

p.s. I saw that you won DWB blog of the month!!!
