Toys on Tuesday

Let's start the day with some pretty flowers from our front yard.

Here's a closeup.

And now to share two pups.

This little pug mix lives on our street and his name is Charlie.
We think he looks a little like Emmitt.

And this is Baker. Mom met him at the bike shop and took his pic with her iPhone; please excuse the quality of the photo. Baker's owner told her that he only weighs 100 lbs. and is still a pup at 10 months. He reminds us a lot of Honey.

And now for our toys on Tuesday. Our good Furiends Steve and Kat from the Washington Woos (Kat is TD's girl) sent us a surprise package. We got a new stuffie frog and a flying squirrel like Steve and Brice have. Here is the card that was in the package, front and back.

Phantom is funny with stuffies. He rarely plays with them but loves to carry one to the back door on his way outside and then drop it at the door. Once in a great while a particular stuffie will catch his eye and from then on that one is his and only his. He heard the squeak of the frog and that was it. Here he is checking out Freddie the Frog.

And now how about some stuffie fun with Phantom!!!

Our next door neigbor's lab has one of these Chuck It flying squirrels and he loves to chase it and catch it and bring it back. For a few weeks now, TD has been managing to get the squirrel through the fence and brings it his own deck. Steve and Kat thought it would be nice for TD to have his own.

But after you watch this video, we think you will agree that he has a lot to learn about what to do with the flying squirrel. Brice, can you come and help teach TD how to do it the right way? Steve, if you can come too, that would be great, just don't forget to bring Kat too.

Pee Ess, Mom says to please excuse the messy house, it was a day with ALL the grandbipeds here, so there are toys everywhere, the potty chair is out for training three Two-year-olds, and the table has dishes out while all the breakables have been removed from the tables. And the beach towel is on the coffee table to protect it from the little guys' trucks:)

I love your videos. I never saw a squirrel that looked like that before. The froggy is my favorite. For me as long as it squeaks its mine. I was even crying while Mom was playing the froggy video. I want that squeaky! Great pressies

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Sue said...

Morgan is going to have to teach him what to do with the flying squirrel. She got so good at catching it and running with it that she eventually found a hiding place and ripped it up. Till then it was a big hit with everyone.

Tracey and Huffle said...

We didn't notice any mess. That frog looks tasty! I mean fun :)

Mango said...

Uh oh! Nerd alert! Somebody is watching Star Trek on the picture box.

Momma wants to know why there aren't any nose prints on your windows. I must admit that I, too, am curious.

That Baker doggie looks a little like a blond ME!


Princess Eva and Brice said...

I dropped a nylabone on the laptop to trade for your froggy but Momma says that it doesn't work that way.

Thunder made great progress at the end of the video. I'd love to come give lessons but we'll have to settle for video response tomorrow. But I do like to chew the corners too.

Tee said...

What great videos of your fun stuffies. What mess? We didn't even notice! Our Chief thinks your mom has a lovely garden full of blooming flowers. So pretty.

Wally says you're welcome to hang out in his tree.

Despite the lack of not knowing how to use it, I think you look very proud with your flying squirrel. And you sure know how to use a squeakie!

Lovin' squeakies,


Stella said...

My Mom and I watched the video and said Oh what a lovely home so no apologies to us, please.

My Mom says our home is wall to wall Stella fur!

Its fun to see Phantom cutting up with his froggy and well, Thunder will catch on to his squirrel pretty soon.

Alasandra said...

Thunder & Phantom, we hopes you make it to Socks' party today. Be sure to scroll down to our WW featuring Fenris.

We remembered your comment about homeschooling, so we thought we would share the link to Mommy's homeschooling blog
she has some resources in the sidebar. She is retired now both boys are in COLLEGE, although she does do the occasional homeschool post when she has time.

We loved the pictures of the flowers - very pretty and we thought the dogs were all cute.
We liked the little pug cross.

That is hardly a messy house considering all of the action that was taking place. Nice schwag pooches! :)

The Great Rock Eater said...

Cool new toys!!! Hope you get to enjoy them for a long time!! It's nice to have friends that share with us!!


Freya's Staff said...

hiya! Your comment on my blog made me laugh!
WOW! Phantom and Thunder are really stunning! And to be honest, that's really saying something, as I don't really like goggies..
Well, They're ok, but Daddycat's allergic, so he can't snuzzle them.

Anne-Kathrine said...

Love all the pics and videos. Have to say the look on Thunder's face when you are outside throwing the squirrel is priceless lol.

Ludo van Doggy said...

What pawsome toys! Great to see Phantom having such fun with the froggie. Made me wanna come play too!
~lickies, Ludo

Cyber-sibes said...

Wooo,nice new toys! Don't worry, TD will figure it out. Wooing of which, I think I'll have Jack sit and study Phantom playing with that frog. He needs pointers on how to properly make a squeakie squeak. (have woo seen the videos of him squeaking it with his NOSE? Dorkboy.)


Melissa and Emmitt said...

oh my gosh!
your front yard is beautiful!

how fun that you have a pug neighbor!

have a fabulous wednesday with your new toys!

Moco said...

That is a lot of squeaking.

Brownie said...

Phantom, it's so pawsome that you're having a great time with the froggy.

As for the squirrel... I guess I would need a lesson too! BOL!

Oh and you have a WONDERFUL garden!

pughy said...

Wonderful garden.. How lovely the toys you got.. Your faces say I am enjoying..

Hugs GJ xx


I'm so jelly of your freddie the frog! so jelly.

Sitka, Tia, & Cornelia Marie said...

HAHAHA! The tossing of the squirrel to get Thunder to catch it was funny!!! Mom was laughing out loud!!!

Sitka, Tia, & Cornelia Marie said...

P.S. VERY nice to see Phantom romping around like a 2 year old :)

Mochi and Mommy said...

Great gifts! I love the videos! It's so fun to watch Phantom enjoying his frog so much! :)

TD is so funny with the flying squirrel! :)


Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

We just realized that we had forgotten to comment on this post! Oops!

We are really happy that Phantom likes Freddie the Frog so much! It made us really happy to see him so happy.

Now, Thunder, what is the deal? You wanted a flying squirrel so badly that you took the neighbor's but now that you have your own, you are bored with it? We guess even the flying squirrels are greener on the other side of the fence. :-)
