We had a very slow and leisurely start to our day today.

It was cool and dry out on the deck at 7:30 am
so we both decided to take it easy.

But before we forget, we are long overdue in telling you about two awards we received from some very nice furiends.

Mollie Jo and Bobo from Dog Eared thought they would share this lovely creation from the Purple Hatter.

We have been pretty lax in getting our posts up lately so we aren't sure we deserve this one. Not much earthshaking been going on around here lately. The Momster says there is nothing wrong with that, but we do wish we were doing a better job here with our posts.

If you haven't met the Piappies, you really need to go and say hi to them. They gave us this award.

Thanks to Mollie Jo and Bobo and all the Piappies for being so kind. If you haven't already received these awards and you would like them, please help yourself.

Eventually we got a bit more energy and managed to get the Momster to take us for a walk. She is still working on getting the video colors to work correctly on the flashy box so we only have photos today. We got to do some of this:

And this:

And over the bridge we go.

Checking out all the good smells - and some pretty flowers too.

Phantom is trying to hide from the flashy beast.

Take a look at these beautiful marigolds, Mom, wouldn't Dakota have loved their brilliant yellow color? (This way, I don't have to look at her:)

OK, I'll look just this once.

I told you, just ONCE.

Try Thunder, he doesn't seem to mind posing quite as much.

OK, we had our walk, we are very hungry now. When are you going to fire this grill up and get on with barbecuing our steaks?

There seemed to be a special glow in the pics by the flowers. I think that Dakota was stopping by to say "Woo".

Thor said...

Hi Thunder and Phantom!
Beautiful pictures! Looks like you have a great day! Did you get your steaks??


Amber and Nala said...

Looks like a very relaxing day!! Hey, if you lick the grill you might get some tasty leftover flavors. :)

As for the popcorn, I find that the closer I get without touching it and the cuter I look, the more I get!! ;) Kill em' with cuteness is my motto!


The Thundering Herd said...

Beginning and ending on the deck - how perfect! What flavor steak did you get?

Piappies World said...

Hi Thunder!
Congratulations once more. Sharing your walkies photos and wonderful flowers is really great.
We sure hope you and Phantom got some yummy steaks!

Wild Dingo said...

Be careful T & P, don't get too close to that grill. HOT Dogs are NOT on the menu!

Honey the Great Dane said...

Ooh, my humans don't have a barbecue and I'm always reading about other doggies that have them and feeling very envious!

Hey - why do you guys have knots in your leashes??

Your pal,

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Don't feel bad, we haven't been blogging very frequently either. Hopefully all of the yard work will be done after this weekend so we can get back to being the center of attention!


Twix said...

I knew I smelled steak the other day! No offence, TD but I really like those last few photos of Phantom. Especially the huge smile he has. Maybe you will give a smiley face too?

Mochi and Mommy said...

Love that last pic! :) Phantom is ready for his steak!


Mr Darcy said...

Dear Thunder and Phantom,
You are very good at posing. When I don't want a photo taken of me I get a highly miserable look on my face that completely spoils the photo - makes me feel better!
