On our way home from our walk today, we heard Mom talking to a neighbor about "mums" and she said we had some on our front porch. Huh? We thought the mums we know were in the United Kingdom with Ginger Jasper and Australia with Huffle Mawson.

When we got to the front of our home, we decided to check out the porch and this is what we found:

Where are they, Phantom? I don't see any biped Mums here, do you?

I am not sure, TD, but these flowers look new to me. I think it is just a trap to get us to pose for the flashy box AGAIN.

Well, that's a bummer, I really wanted to meet those nice Mums from across the big pond and down under.

It's a trick, Thunder, just don't look at her.

Darn, she caught me. Can we go inside now?

Once inside, Mom said we had done a good job on our walk and posing for the photoshoot so we could have a reward. She had been cleaning out the garage refrigerator and freezer because a new one is coming for the kitchen next week, and she found a couple of treats hiding in the back.

Of course, I LOVE my frozen peanut butter/biscuit topped kong.

Smells pretty good to me, Mom. Can I have it now please? And if Phantom really doesn't want his, I am more than willing to have an extra.

Thanks, Mom, it was really good.

Sorry, Mom, I really didn't want one today. I like watching at the door.
What am I watching for? That's my secret:)

That's all for today.

Beautiful puppies! I'd love to run my fingers through their fur.
Today is Hounddog Thursday at my blag.

Ah yes: The Phantom and His Mysteries!

Furry funny posting on your mum's mums part!

It was a trikhk but really it wasn't: we always know what they are up to - we just humour 'em!


Sierra Rose said...

Hey there!!!!! So....what's a peanut butter biscut topped Kong? Mom only gives me the peanut butter filled ones...but, will have to talk to her about a biscut addition....sounds scrumptious!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

Lovely written,
so sweet words :)
I love the flowers ;)

Sue said...

I hide the biscuits under the peanut butter so they have to work for them.

Fudge would probably have watered those flowers.

BeadedTail said...

We didn't see any Mums either so that must of been a trick to get more photos of you. As for the frozen peanut butter biscuit topped Kong - sounds yummy!


Cloud the Wonder Dog said...

BOL, those are funny looking Mums! *giggles*

Hooray fur peanutbutter kongs!!!


Byron y Xinver said...

Your curiosity is like a cat's one, isn't it? That's good!

Kira The BeaWootiful said...

Woooos! Nice Mums I guess, I think Martha and Bailey's or Dughallmoors would have been more fun though... I will take the frozen PB Kong if no one will eat, me, me!

As per what you're looking for, shouldn't you say, "Mum's the word"? Hee hee hee.

Mango said...

Amazing what hides in that cold box.

She sure tricked you to pose with the flowers. Hehehe.


Stella said...

Doesn't that bug you, when she plays tricks on you? Mums and Mums!

At least she found a good treat for you.


Lilo, The Great Rock Eater said...

Such handsome boys!!! I'm gonna have to get the momma to get me one of those kong things. I'm all about a treat with peanut butter in it.


Lorenza said...

Hi, Thunder and Phantom!
I can see there are another kind of Mums in this world!
Great pictures!
And yummy treats!
I love when my mom finds yummy treasures in the fridge!

It was furry nice to see woo in front of the mums, even if they weren't Mums. i'd pose for a reward like that, too!

Jack a-roo

Deborah said...

Hi again! Smokes is part of the pack, he talks and talks and talks, that is why I was wondering.. He is talking this second, he is at the door to come in, but he won't come in because it is cool outside! So I try to let him in, but nope, he runs around the pool area, then I'll shut the door and it starts all over. He talks all day long!! Thanks for visiting!

Hi there Thunder and Phantom,

Those are wonderful photos! We really love them. Those mums sure look lovely beside you but don't think they give treats. Great thing you got your mom to take care of the treats. And boy those treats look yummy. We've never tried peanut butter are they good, Thunder?

Oh, and to reply to your question, Frappie, Mocha and Sugar are about 5 months old today! Mommy has to work double time in posting our past adventures to get our blog updated and we hope you would bear with us.

Have a great weekend! We got a super storm expected to enter our country so we're really praying we'd be spared from flood or damage. Be well there as well.

- Princess, Fudgie & the Piappies
