Friday Faces

It was a very, very, very wet day here in Overland Park yesterday, and today was a very, very, very windy day. Now we could understand that the Momster didn't take us for a walk yesterday. But today none of the little grandbipeds were here so we were sure we would be getting a walk.

We both waited very patiently.

It looks pretty good out there to us.

It can't be that bad, Mom. Don't worry, we won't pull too much - we know you have a big ouchie
(we can't help it if you don't know enough to move your big feet when you are climbing the stairs).

See, Mom. I am out here and look at how content I am.
Can't we go for a walk?

I have so much energy to burn, Mom. Much better for you to take me for a walk than to endanger these nice pillows. No, that was not meant to be a threat at all.

We're still waiting. . . . . . . .

Pretty please?

Hey Phantom, I think she is thinking about it.

Did somebody say "WALK"? I am all ears.

We are ready. Just get the leashes. OK, and the flashy box too if that is what it takes.

And we are happy to tell you that we DID get a walk AND no flashy box shots because it was too windy for the Momster to handle the leashes, the wind, and the camera.

Now we want to tell you about the Cutest Bear Photo Contest that Mack and Sally Ann are hosting. Here is the scoop:

On November 10, 2009, Sally Ann birthday and a date very near the date three years ago Sylvie got sick, the polls will close.
You will win a donation for $20.00 to the Atlanta Humane society, and a birthday dog toy for you, which will be sent to your house.
There will be a $10.00 donation, and a birthday dog toy that will be sent to your home;as, a second place.

So, in short, y'all vote, there is a first and second place. The money you win will go to the humane society(where Queen Sylvie and Princess Sally Ann came from), as a donation in your name to the humane society, and you will win a small token toy.

The pictures must have you and a bear in it. There can be a human, but only in the background.

If you click here and scroll down through Mack and Sally Ann's post, you can see the entrants that you can vote for at the end. There are lots of really cute bears and pups. The fun part about this contest is that no matter who wins, a humane society will benefit.

Here are the three pics we submitted. Hope you like them. Please do go visit Mack and Sally Ann and make your choice. Thanks.

Hope everyone has a great weekend and a Happy Howloween.

Woos, Phantom and Thunder

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Would you believe that I can't find a single bear in this house to take a picture with?? That's crazy!

I'm so glad you got a walk. It's been windy here too which is very strange as the wind hardly ever blows here. And rainy, but that's no surprise.


PS. Tell your mom we hope her boo-boo is better soon!

Sheryl said...

You guys are just too cute. I would love to give you a big hug and a scratch behind the ears.

MAX said...

Hey there Phantom and Thunder
Yes, its a fun competition and we have voted already, so good luck with all the donations!
(Please could we also ask you - if you haven't voted yet - to put your vote in for the AWESOME BLOG AWARD on DWB! The votes are tied at the moment and the voting ends tonight, so your vote would make the world of difference to either one of us nominees!)

Dennis the Vizsla said...

You are very sweet with your bears and I'm glad you got to go for a walk!

Wild Dingo said...

Oh my, the threats. the bribes. so siberian.

Now i know what OP stands for!

(Marc and Mark are the TravelMarx @ Marc is Wild Dingo's brother. Mark is extended pack member of Wild Dingo's family for 16+ years. they travel a lot= TravelMarx.) Marc (Wild Dingo's brother), not a "dog" person. but doesn't dislike them. Just not ga-ga like the rest of us in dog blog world. so it was silly for him to do us this favor and THEN blog about it!

Two Country Poodles said...

What adorable faces you have...and we love the non threatning ideas you had for the pillows. BOL Glad to hear you got your walk!

Wags and Licks,
Mollie Jo and Bobo

Mack said...

Martha and Bailey said...

We loved those pleading faces wanting to go for a walk! You guys would get on so well with Martha who manages to look as though nobody ever takes her anywhere!!

Mango said...

I totally voted in the bear contest (but I won't tell you for whom). Walkies, sigh. Of course once one works up a good case of the cabin fever a walk is even MORE exciting when you finally go.


The Thundering Herd said...

Glad you got your walks. No day is complete without at least one great walk and those humans are always trying to point out the weather.

Love the bear pictures, but we are always confused by the stuffing staying inside.

Sue said...

Yesterday it didn't rain, but everything was so wet from all the rain we've had that Mom didn't want us to stay outside very long.

Today the sun is shining and there's a cool wind. Tsar is so happy. He wouldn't even come in for breakfast. He just wants to sit on the hill, let the wind blow thru his coat and dream of snow.

ScrapsofMe said...

Happy HOWL oh weenie to you!
peesesss...hopeyou gets another long walkie today before it gets too skeeeree

Ozzie the OZmonster & Zowie said...

You all are SOOOO patient waiting for your walkie. So glad you got to get out and the pillows didn't suffer.

Happy Howl-o-ween,


PS. John said you have nice looking grass.

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

So glad you finally got to walk! Hope mom's foot isn't too damaged (that could really hurt and make walking tough). Your Teddy photos are so delightful...we already voted for you!

Love the pics! you are are just too too beautiful for words, Mom loves your sweet faces...

Thanks for stopping by recently, we're sorry that our visits have been few lately but Mom has been so busy trying to find a job and dealing with unemployment and insurance crap - no fun, but in the mean time we are extremely delighted that she is home all day with us now! Woos!!!

Hi Guys,

We just wanted to wish you a "Happy Halloween"!

Riley and Star.

Checkers said...

a little birdie told me that you two have a little yappy dog that looks like me who terrorizes you - IS THAT TRUE?????? Well I never! I can assure you that it is NOT related to me - I am NOT yappy! I do NOT terrorize - I am sweet and kind and loving - so you have my total permission to bit him in the butt!!!!

Twix said...

Those are great photos! I especially like the one of Phantom looking in from outside. I'm glad your mom finally gave in and took you two for a walk. Today was a perfect walking day! I don't know which one of you to vote for. I will go check out the other entries but I can tell you that none of them will be as cute as either one of you!

Checkers said...

I just don't like little "yappers" giving me a bad name - 'specially if they look like me :-) - tonite I will send "hush your yap" vibes to the little rat!!!!

Happy Halloween!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh my goodness -- I don't know how anyone can resist your faces! My human said that she was itching to fly over to America and take you for a walk herself when she was looking at your pictures! :-)
