Monday Musings

Sad woos today. One of our furiends crossed to the Rainbow Bridge over the weekend. Ziggy Marley was such a gentle boy. Please visit his blog or his brother Pedro's to leave a few words of comfort for his family.

Run free, sweet Ziggy - we will miss you.


Recently we found a new blog that we really do enjoy - Sagira's Blog. Here is a little bit of background on Sagira.
I am an agility dog. I am a husky/sheltie mix that came from a high kill shelter. I was scheduled to be euthanized until the nice people rescued me. I went to a foster home and I am so darn cute I made my foster mom and dad break their "no adopting" rule and they chose to make me a permanent part of the family. I love life here. I am spoiled rotten. I have two brothers, Harley is an 12 year old black lab and Samick is a 10 year old All American like me. I also have an 9 year old sister who is a Weimaraner. Her name is Starr and she is the boss of the family.
Isn't she just so cute? Sagira and the rest of her furamily are eager to meet some other bloggers. So if you can, please stop by and say hello.

Meanwhile, back on the home front, we are sadly saying good bye to our snow.

Yikes - I just can't bear to walk on that green stuff.

Oh, the horror - I just can't look!

We did get to take a nice walk with Mom today, even if it meant we had to endure the big towel wipedown when we got back. But as you can see we have moved our patrol post to the deck to try to avoid all that green that is creeping into our yard.
It is going to be a rainy week here, but we did hear there is a big storm brewing for the weekend. We sure hope it is a SNOWstorm. Woos, Phantom and Thunder

It's definitely sad that Ziggy has left, and that your snow is fading away. He looks like a really lovely dog, and I'm sure everyone will miss him lots and lots.


Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Sagira IS a great gal, isn't she...and she is SO involved! Thanks for letting everyone know about her. Snow IS predicted for later in the week; I will keep my paws crossed for you. Winter is far from over yet. We are sorry to hear about Ziggy's crossing. We hope his family finds peace and comfort knowing he is carefree and well on the other side of the Bridge. Thank you so much for YOUR kind words of comfort to my mom... she found much solace in all of the thoughtfulness expressed on our blog.

I hate to hear that the green is creeping up on you. Hopefully that white stuff will come back soon for you to play in.

Chester said...

Sad for Ziggy's family-I'm sure he will be missed terribly.

I have not only green creepin' into my yard but that lovely brown also. Talk about gettin' wiped down when I come in. It's downright embarrassin'!!

Sagira sure is a cutie-if I don't get around to visit tell her good luck with her bloggin'

Chester ;0=)

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

Sagira looks like fun. We'll go and visit her. We also were saddened to hear about Ziggy. It all happened so quickly.

Sorry about your now, guys, but maybe it will be nice to get fresh stuff, instead of the same old....?

Scout 'n Freyja said...

It is snowing over at our place, come on over to play! We'll break out the Milk Bones and peanut butter for treats☺

Thor said...

So sad about Ziggy.

Your friend Sagira is very cute! Went there to say hi.


Wild Dingo said...

OM Dawg that sibe mix is ADORABLE! I would fail at fostering Sagira for sure. we will go visit!

We don't know why your humans don't take you straight north and live there where there is snow forever. sigh. humans are so silly with this sun and warm stuff.

YD, sometimes with Samantha and June said...

Thank woo fur telling us about Sagira. We will stop by to sniff it out.
Sorry to hear about Ziggy.
We still have a little bit of snow. Hopefully we'll get some more soon.

Sam & June

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Oh no! I can see more green than white now. That is just not good. You're right though, at least you got a walk.


Sue said...

Our snow is all gone, but it left mud behind. Mom is tired of washing all our feet every couple hours, so Dad is putting straw on top of the mud. That's fun to sniff and poke around in.

Sagira said... sure made me popular. Never had so many comments before. haha. Thanks again. :)

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh don't talk to me about the 'towel wipedown'!!!! :-)

Am keeping my paws crossed for you to get more snow!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

Holly and Khady said...

We are currently getting rain, which will turn to freezing rain and sleet by Wednesday morning. Yuck!!! I see my snow is slowly going away too, so I can feel your pain!

Lets all cross our paws for more snow!

We stopped over to say hi to Sagira. She is such a cutie!!

Holly and Khady

Cheyenne -Millie said...

That is sad about Ziggy.

Sagira is pretty.... also lucky!

We are sorry about your snow disappearing! We have been having rain here.


Hi guys,

We went over and visited with Ziggy's family yesterday. So sad.
We will go over and say hi to your new friends. She sure is cute.
Tell your parents that "The Lovely Bones" was very well done and Mommy enjoyed it. Mommy read the book when it first came out and the movie follows the book pretty well .Even though she knew what was gonna happen she still set on the edge of her seat.


Byron y Xinver said...

Sad news! Take care of the storm, although we see you enjoy the snow
