Twink was kind enough to share this sweet award with us. Thanks, Twinkie.


The rules:
Rule #1. Copy the image to your blog - such a pretty one.
Rule #2. List 10 things that make you happy and try to do one today.

1. Remembering Dakota
2. Yummy treats
3. Snow
4. Sunshine-y days
5. Visiting our blogger furiends.
6. Snoozes
7. Long walks
8. Mom and Dad
9. Our human nieces and nephews
10. Surprises

Rule #3. Tag 10 bloggers who brighten your day. Many of you have already received this award but we would like to share it with:

Sagira
Steve, Kat, and Wilbur
Fenris and the kitties
Ginger Jasper
Ruby the Service Puppy
Buddy, Sassy, and Zack
Mango and Dexter
Maggie and Mitch
Sugar
Khyra and Merdie

And if you haven't gotten it too, then please help yourself, the OP Pack is all about sharing with furiends.

******

On a sadder note, we were very sorry to hear the sad news of the passing of Sharkie. We send our thoughts and prayers to Deetz, Jinx, and their Mom. We know how sad they all must be.

We are sure they could use some comfort. If you have a few minutes, please stop by and leave them a kind word.

******

Mom got a surprise package in the mail yesterday. For all you iPhone and iPod users, this is really nice. She had been telling our human sister-in-law that she loves her iPhone but can't use it when she has her gloves on because it is sensitive to the touch of a bare finger. Look at these.



They really do work too. If your human would like some, tell them to look at this website:

www.echodesign.com

And overnight we did get some snow, the operative word being some, a very little "some".

TD is out on early morning patrol to be sure the Snow Thief doesn't take even this little bit away. South of us is getting hit very hard with snow, ice, and sleet. Stay safe down there.

Lastly we notice that so many of our furry pals like to snuggle and snooze together. This is about as close to snuggles as we get:)



Woos and happy weekend to all, Thunder and Phantom

The gloves look great! Also the little snow you received is what I hope we get but they are calling for 6 to 12 inches. Hope they are wrong! Debbie and Holly

Congrats on your award! It's freezy cold here, but no snow. I keep wanting to go outside. Mom keeps telling me it's too cold. Too cold for HER! BOL!
Hope you get more snow!
Your pal,
Titus

Martha and Bailey said...

We were shocked to read the news about Sharkie. We have never heard of that happening - very tragic.

Congrats on your Award and good work on the tag. We have lots of things in common that make us happy although we have no little bipeds in our family at the moment.
But who knows...............

love and kisses

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

My mom needs those gloves, but she just bought a last weekend. She had been looking all over for her gloves since before Christmas and she finally broke down and bought some new ones and the next day, she found her old ones. She's so silly.

Steve

PS. Thanks for the award!

Twinkietinydog said...

My pleasure. You deserve this and many more awards. Congratulations on your miniscule amount of snow too. It doesn't surprise me you two don't cuddle more. You're both equipped like the Wooly Mammoth and you probably overheat if you snuggle. BOL
Twink!

Huffle Mawson said...

Very sad about Sharkie. Those gloves look awesome! We wouldn't need them here because it never gets that cold. Congrats on your award!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Thunder and Phantom!
Well... some snow is better than zero snow, right?
Congratulations on your Award!
Thanks for sharing your happy things!
I am sad about Sharkie. It was a terrible accident. Our thoughts are with all his family.
Kisses and hugs

Tiff :o) said...

Oh, and congrats on your award too.

I know the candle that Khyra will burn- will help him at the bridge. We will light one too.

Congratulations on your award. You are so deserving- and also the snow you received is definatly worth celebrating.
Thank you for the informaiton on the gloves.
I think you should now go out and make a snowman

I wonder if I should get a pair of those gloves for my Mommy... Maybe for me!? That way I can use the CrackBerry too since it doesnt have PupPaw sensors!!

You guys are snuggling pretty cute for brothers... I mean, you both have reputations to uphold. I understand!

Licks,

Chester said...

Hiya Phantom and Thunder! It's been way too long since I've woofed at you two! I hope that you get some more snow and also more of those Salmon knotted bones with sweet 'tator filling. They look yummy and I added them to Mom's shoppin' list.

Sorry about Sharkie-always sad to hear about the loss of a friend.

Woofs and slobbers,
Chester ;0=)

Teddy said...

Sharkie looks like a real sweetie. I can imagine his family must be so sad to lose him.

We'll have to check out those gloves. Thanks for the tip.

Teddy

Amber and Nala said...

Great award! Wow, thopse gloves look cool. My Dad is crazy about his iphone but Mom has not got one yet. :) As for the nail clipping...I am normally like you and mine wear down enough on walks but we have not been on many sidewalk walks lately as they have been icy. Now though, it's good for walks so Mom has been taking me out in hopes of wearing the nails down. ;)

Nala

JD and Max said...

Hi Guys - that is sad news about your pal, we will go and visit, they must feel so sad.

Congratulations on your award - you always brighten our day! And we agree with you about the snow coverage - that is quite a paltry effort! We had the same thing here - a smattering of snow that really wasn't worth the effort, he he he!

We are definately schnauzers who snuggle - we find each other so comfy to drape over! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

Cyber-sibes said...

Woo got more snow that we did! Khool gloves, do whty come in sets of four for us doggies?

a-roos to yous,
jack a-roo & moo too

PS - sending sad woos to your friend's family. RIP Sharkey.

Cheyenne -Millie said...

You are furry close in that last picture. I don't likes to be near anyone when I sleeps!

We are glad you got some snow.

Sagira said...

Oh wow...I feel so special, you gave me an award? WOO HOOO!

So sorry to hear about your friend. That is so sad. :(

MONA AND MOMMY TOO!! said...

Hi my friends,

Yep,I belong with Mommy and wouldn't want to be with anybody else. She's the gem not me, but thanks for the compliment.

I hope we will be frien ds forever, me andn you boys. I promise to send each of you a kiss for Valentine's Day.

{{{huggies}}}...Mona

Deefor said...

We were so sad about Sharkie. Nice award. I don't snuggle with Arrow when we sleep. I like my space.

River said...

We visited Deetz's site to say goodbye to Sharkie.

Very nice award! Congratulations!

You got some snow! We sure did this week as you saw on the video.

love & wags,
River

NORWOOD UNLEASHED said...

TD and P
That is very sad about Sharkie. Terrible. Um... those gloves are funny looking but mom hate having to take off her mittens. So the snow ice mess didn't hit you?
This time I think you're lucky
