Monday Meme and Awards

We are very remiss in not taking care of this meme that was passed along to us way back in December by Canine Crusader form Dog Blog for Five Dogs. We apologize for taking so long to get to it, but the holidays just got in the way. So better late than never.

The challenge is to go to the fourth or seventh folder in your My Pictures folder and post on your blog the fourth or seventh image from that folder. You then challenge friends to participate by inviting them via the blog entry. If you don’t use the My Pictures folder, find the 4th or 7th folder with pictures and choose the 4th or 7th picture. It does not have to be related to your blog! If you have folders within folders, you can choose the fourth folder within the fourth folder and the fourth image within that folder.

So here is the 7th picture in the 7th folder in our iPhoto Albums.

Phantom eagerly awaiting a taste of Dad's homemade apple pie. And yes, he did get some. This photo actually appeared in one of our blog posts a while ago.

It is always fun to look back at old photos. If you would like to play this game and share a photo with everyone, we would love to pass this along to you. And thanks to the Canine Crusader for sharing it with us.

We have also received another award from both Cocorue and also Candy and Captain Crunch
that we would like to post about.

This award was created by the Purple Hatter and sweet Cocorue offered it to all of those who had commented on one of her posts. Then we were thrilled to also have it awarded to us by the cute little ones Candy and Captain. The only rule is to share it with at least 5 friends. As you all know, we don't always abide by the rules, so we are going to offer this award to all of you, and in particular to these five bloggers:

The Canine Crusader at Dog Blog for Five Dogs
Alassandra, Fenris, and the kitties
Tommy and all the beautiful kitties at The Pouponette
Mona and her Mommy

And one more thing, Candy and Captain Crunch have started a new club for all pups (and other furanimals too) called the Pup Scouts of America. Here is the badge.

We think the badge will bigify if you click on it, but just in case, here is what the oath states:

Pup Scout Oath:
On the honor of my paw I will do my best
to do my duty to my fur and non-fur community
& to obey the Pup Scout Law
to help other pups and their people at all times
to keep myself in tip top pup condition,
furry aware & ready at a moments notice.

What a great pledge!!! If you would like to join the Pup Scouts of America, just pay a visit to Candy and Captain Crunch at I Need a Sugar Fix and let them know you want to be part of this great organization. We will be displaying our badge proudly.

It looks like we might finally be emerging from the recent Ice Age that descended upon the Midwest. But now we have a very big job ahead of us. Here is what we are working on now.

You look that way, Thunder. I have this side covered.

What do you mean- what are we doing? We are on guard for the Snow Thief who is going to make our snow go away with the warm temps coming in this week.

Woos, Phantom and Thunder

I'm sad about it too!

PeeEssWoo: Ah yes, the magikh of Siberian ears...woo khan see them working but....................we 'khan't' hear woo!

Kari in WeHo said...

ooooo make sure that snow thief doesn't return for a long time!

Stella said...

We are not worried about the Snow Thief at all! It is only January 11th, and if Snow Thief takes it all, February and March are always snowy months. Oh, thats right, you guys aren't in MinnieSNOWda are you? You will have to move here or take what you get!


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

We hate to say this but we would gladly take the snow thief off your hands... We have been stuck at the bottom of our lane since last Wednesday and there is no sign of anyone clearing it! If we didn't have the Internet, we would think that the worlds had vanished!

Thank so much for thinking of us for that lovely award!

Gus said...

Just think guys, if the snow theif comes and steals the USED (yellow) snow, then the Snow God from the North may send you piles of NEW (white) snow about this time next week.


Ginger Jasper said...

Love the snow watch pictures. The snow thief is here and taking our snow, allthough forecast for more this week.. Congrats on your lovely awards. Hugs GJ xx

The Thundering Herd said...

That snow thief is everywhere and is supposed to be coming here.

One of his accomplices, the snow plow, has been near us a lot. We always react to it - and not because the guy who drives it always gives us ear scratches and belly rubs. No, not because of that.

Petey said...

You two look right in your element in all that snow! We're just happy that the deep freeze is letting up down here in coastal South Carolina. We're not prepared for cold temps!

Hmmm, apple pie! Bring it on!

Your pal,


Samantha said...

Great shots, as always!!! Oh how you Sibes look so gorgeous in the snow pix!!! Hope you manage to keep the snow thief from robbing you blind!
Hugs xo

Doing a great job guarding the snow! I also loved your 4th photo! What do you mean? You sound like a great cook. Morton's is one of my favorites as well. Thanks for playing along. You are the best!

Mud Monster said...

Congratulations on all your awards!! That's paw-some!

Yeah if you catch that stinky snow theif give him a howl for me too. He already visited me and took all my snow. Hurmph! :-(

All paws crossed that he don't steal yours. An that we get more!!


BRUTUS said...

The snow is still coming down here, and no warmth forecasted in the next 10 days that would effect it! I'm up to my armpits (literally), so you can come here and take some if your snow starts to go away!!

Twinkietinydog said...

Sagira said...

You guys sure are cute. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I always need some new friends and hope you will follow me as well. :)

Clive said...

You two look fabulous in the snow!

The snow thief arrived here today and took all our snow away and the NSLM is so upset. All schools across the country had been closed until Wed - because of the snow forecast but somehow (thankfully) the snow wasn't as bad as the weather said and then the rain came today so the schools are opening up again tomorrow.

The NSLM's Mom is very pleased - this will be the first day back since the Christmas hols but the NSLM went to bed very unhappy!

take care

Sonic said...

The Snow Thief? Wow that sounds pretty scary! He comes and takes the snow away? It sounds like the Anti-Santa Paws! What a bad person!

I hope you catch him!


Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Phantom looks like h e has a brown coat in those pictures. I had to do a double take to recognize him!

Speaking of apple pie, I am still waiting for mine. I don't know how successful I will be because my mom doesn't like it so I don't think we've had any in our house. Maybe I will have to settle for just the ala mode part.


BeadedTail said...

We hope the snow thief doesn't take all your snow! You two are the cutest snow guards ever!

Congratulations on your award and we enjoyed your meme!

PeeS: Our grandpa did make it out here last week and he goes back to KS already tomorrow.

Alasandra said...

We are tired of cold so please tell the SNOW THIEF to come here even though we don't have any snow. We wants warm temps. ~AFSS

Teddy said...

Good guarding you two! Looks like that snow isn't going anywhere.

PS: Can you send the snow thief our way? We've had enough of the white stuff here. I want to play football again!


Tweedles -- that's me said...

Confratulations on all your awards!
And thank you for sharing with us.
We do not want the snow thief to come here- he causes too much trouble.
We hope the icebergs thaw and you can get back to normal stuff.

TwoSpecialWires said...

Congrats on the awards, and congrats on posting about them (we are bad in that regard...) We LOVE the last two pictures of you two in the snow. We hope you are successful in making it last, 'cause you look so fitting sitting there guarding.

Enjoy it while it lasts.
Jake and Fergi xxoo

Don't worry TD-I'm not gonna steal it! Hee hee mom thought P was wearing some kinda harness and then figured out it was the shadows.

nice work on the apple pie.

Life With Dogs said...

Something tells me your winter will remain white. :)

I love the old pic tag games, you never know what will come up!

Aki and Poopie said...

hey ther TD and Phantom!!

we agree. a strict watch must be maintained to prevent anyone from stealing away your snow. I'm pretty sure I'd join you in that cause if I lived there.

but, should the snow thief succeed, can you at least tell him to pass by here and bring us at least 2 sacks of snow? :D

happy snow year!

drooly kisses,


Snowie Baby said...

Twix said...

The snow thief is coming! Yay! If you don't want him in your yard send him over to my house right away.
Congrats on your award and I just "applied" to become a pup scout. We'll see if they let me in.
PS: I re=posted my snow photos so you should be able to see them now. That way if the snow thief comes you can at least see some snow.

Bae Bae said...

~ Bae


I wonder if woo are still guarding the snow! I hear it's warming up finally

Holly and Khady said...

That nasty snow thief is always showing up after we get such nice snow. We are suppose to warm up a little too, so I hope all of ours isn't taken. I'll have to keep an eye out too! I think you are both doing a great job!


Canine Crusader said...

Apple pie! You are one lucky dog! You guys have been busy blogging. We didn't see one snowflake this year. The weather man is always wrong about snow, but he's right about rain! Yuk! Chloe, our Eskimo Spitz, laid out in the cold while the others were inside staying warm. She would have loved to share your snow. Thank you so much for including us in the Share Your Love Award, Moms heart was touched. Thanks also for stopping by and thinking of us while we were away. Mom visited Ziggy's blog and posted a message. You guys are good friends in the dog blog community, we're so glad to have found you!
