Monday's Mish Mash

We may have to fire our assistant as she has been too busy to help us blog.
But she said she would help us today so here we go.

Yay - we got some snow, nowhere near what our furiends on the East Coast got, but we will take what we can get. Time to check out the yard.

Don't we look like we are on a very important mission?

And of course, it is always important to check out the perimeter too.

Most of the snow you see in those pics came on Friday when we got about six inches. It has been snowing most of today too, but for some reason it doesn't seem to want to pile up on the ground.


Three times is a charm or so they say.

We have been thrice awarded this lovely blog badge, this time from Snowie Baby - thanks, pal. And we promise we will be sure you get some more awards soon. We have posted the rules before so we are going to skip that part this time. But we did want to share it with Daisy the Dog. Seems like Daisy is feeling a little award-less lately and we want to cheer her up.


A very important day is coming soon - Valentine's Day. Look at the beautiful card we received in the mail from Pugsley and Lola - isn't it so nice?

Thanks, Pugsley and Lola.


And lastly, another chance for some Monday Memories.

We miss you, Princess Dakota, and we will always love you.

Woos, Phantom and Thunder

Piappies World said...

Hi Phantom and Thunder,

Princess Dakota is really so beautiful and regal. It's nice to think that you have a princess star watching over you from up above.

Congratulations on your award. It's no surprise that you are showered with such honor.

We hope that you are ok there with all the snow you get. We saw some nasty-looking blizzard in the news. For sure you can handle the coooooold.

-Fudgie, Princess & the Piappies

Dakota was so beautiful. You and I are similar - I still think of my S almost every day, and it's been 6 months since his passing. Recently, I've thought of how he tromped along in our snow tracks - ever the happy trooper- even when he was old )but never seemed tired).

Almost every day, I consider putting a photo of him on my blog and then I think that everyone would feel that I should move on. So, he's on those pages in my heart. Perhaps, based on your example, I'll include one of him every now and then.

I bet that Dakota and S are together up there, waiting for us. Happy and young. Oh how I love them.

YD, sometimes with Samantha and June said...

We DIDN'T get any snow! No fair!

Yes, checking the perimeter is very important. We call it border patrol over here.

And last but not least, The Princess was very beautiful!

(Still waiting for our share of snow...)

Such sweet memories of the beautiful Princess Dakota.
She was a beautiful girl.
We did enjoy your snow pics - you two look wonderful in the snow.
Congrats on your award! The valentine card was cool!
The doggy nanny pic was also very cool - make sure those little bipeds eat up all their dinners.
love and kisses

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

That snow looks pretty good to me. I'm glad you showed me a picture of your gate. Because someday, hopefully soon, I will be standing outside your gate, waiting to frolic with you in your yard. I just hope there is snow on the ground, but Mom says not to count on it.


Ludo van Doggy said...

So nice to see Princess Dakota in your memories.
