Thursday's This and That

Taking time to remember.

Every now and then, we like to remember our Princess Dakota in a special way. Today we saw these yellow daisies and thought we would take pause (or is that paws) to remember how much she loved to pose with the yellow daffodils and day lillies. Remember these:

We miss you, Princess.

We went for our walk this morning before all the heat and humidity set in.
Mom took us by the pool and look who we saw there.

That's the little twin grandbipeds in the little pool and way in the back left corner of the big pool is their big sister. Too bad we aren't allowed inside the fence and the pool:(

This is Sweet Pea grandbiped.

Most of the time those little grandbipeds are really sweet to us,
but look what one of them did to Thunder yesterday.
And as if that wasn't enough, a bored Mom added to the torture this morning.

Woos, the OP Pack

Thunder you just didn't like that noise did you? Silly bi-peds, some pup has to entertain them!!
We love the pictures of Dakota. She is truly missed...

I liked hearing you sing. Ah woo woo woo!

What is up with the torture? The people are so easily amused.

Good to see Miss Dakota with her flowers.

Yellow daffodils will always remind us of Princess Dakota. Just like fresh snow will always remind us of Tasha.

If your mom was bored, she should have been playing with you and not trying to torture you!

Mollie Jo and Bobo said...

Thunder I love your Ah Woo's I have been practicing. I hope to be as good as you one day! I might let momma tape it and upload it to our blog so you can hear a poodle woo.

Tracey and Huffle said...

Oh poor Thunder! Mum was laughing and laughing but I think I need to call the ASPCA. That sort of torture is completely unnecessary.

Such lovely pix. We couldn't really watch the video because I got.. uhm.. inspired.. and it's the middle of the night.


Jake of Florida said...

We loved seein the photos of Dakota wih the lovely daffodils!!

As for the Thunder torture scenes -- we owe you a video of JH and the vacuum. It is a whole different level of attack. The tortured becomes the torturer!!!

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry

know what?.....just SIT on the hoover and STARE down the naughty two-legger OR give her your hiney when she does that ALL the time for me ( trying to woo like you but can't....)

Stella said...

Too bad it was Torment Thunder Day today! A few more minutes with the Vac and he probably would have gone Postal and wiped out the place.

Don't you have a bed you can crawl in under?


Life With Dogs said...

Sorry about your ordeal Thunder but it sure does make mommy laugh!! Especially the one with the vacuum cleaner. Mommy does that to me too sometimes! Humans...
Have a great day!!


Reese =^..^= said...

How fun to see the granbipeds at the pool!

Alasandra said...

You asked how Mommy gives us medicine. Well us cats put up a fight and Mommy risk life and limb to do it. Eldest boy bean got scratched tonight when they gave me my antibotic. Mommy says that means I am feeling better. ~Charybdis

I takes my heartworm and flea medicine (pills) like a good boy. ~Fenris

LUCKY LUKE said...

O how the Princess Dakota is so pretty by the daisies forever and all ways. I know she is right there just like she is right there by your feet right now... because she lives in your heart... and mine.

Just wish there were more time on this earf to be physically touchin... and I know you do, too.

Gotta say you have swell pool and those bipeds... wow, on scale of 1 to 10 adorable, they are bout 87 gzillion! (I diss count few billion on a counta pure torture... ha).

Boy o boy how I do perk my ears up wif your "raaar raar raar raar raar"...

And that lead me to say this... Thunder, you are brave as your name... on a counta when Mister Dyson exit closet, I paint myself wif the Acme Disappearin Paint.

Just sayin.

wif love from the Luke

You tell 'em Thunder! I like your singing along with the squeaking and also how you tried to give the vacuum the what-for!


Anya said...

Such a lovely post
beautiful Dakota and lovely flowers

Martha Basset said...

Beautiful flowers and of course we remember beautiful Dakota by the flowers!
You guys looked pretty cool beside the flowers too!
Nice pictures of the grandchildren in the pool.
We can't imagine why you are not allowed in!
How lovely would that be and what a great big splash you would make.
Have a great day

Cheyenne -Millie said...

We like those photos of Dakota! Such lovely memories!

That video is funny! Thunder is really good at singing! But that squeaky toy would scare me! I would run and hide!

Tom, Tama-Chan and Sei-Chan said...

That's some fabulous singing, Thunder. You are a star!

Beautiful pics with the flowers. It's always lovely to remember those we loved so much through something equally lovely.

Your Friends,
Tommy and The Girls

Maggie and Mitch said...

That wasn't nice to tease you, Thunder but we did like your lovely song!
We think it's pretty neat that the little bipeds have their very own built in pool!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Poor Thunder! The teasing is just dreadful! Beware. Sibes have a LOOOOONG memory and they will get revenge. Perhaps in the rose garden or perhaps your favorite flip flops... reveenge awaits! boooowhahahahah! ;)

I LOVE Thunder's singing!

The Thundering Herd said...

Abuse, abuse, abuse. It is all we ever get here too. Let's call our Siberian Union Reps!


Thunder and Phantom

Ohh Dakota! Sweet memories. Now.. thunder, u are more than welcome to stay with us if you have to put up with more vacuum torment and forced auditions but remember to bring that frog. Hee hee

chicamom85 said...

Hi my friends, we have missed you. The pictures of Dakota are beautiful and we are happy to see them. The pictures of the babies are beautiful also. My sister tortures me also, why do they find that amusing??? I will never get it.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Teddy said...

Ha ha Thunder, that was some good singing!! And you behaved so well with that vaccuum...I would have been barking and biting at it!


3 dogs said...

What beautiful pictures of Dakota. I know you must think of her everyday. She is loved and missed.

What a great video! Talking huskies are the best!

Mochi and Mommy said...

Love the memories of Princess Dakota! Everytime we see yellow flowers we think of her!

I loved Thunder singing to the grand bi-ped! :)


Dennis the Vizsla said...

Nice to see our lovely Dakota in front of the flowers.

The Furry Kids said...

Dakota is so beautiful. She is greatly missed.
That vacuum video is super askeery. You're really brave, Thunder!

Your pal,

Sue said...

Poor Thunder with those humans teasing you like that. At our house the girls either attack the vacuum or follow it around. The silly boys all hide.

Joe Stains said...

Dakota was just stunning. It is good to remember for suer. You are singing a good song about that frog torture!!
