Thursday Thanks and Telling

It's that day again - time to send out our thanks for all the wonderful awards we have received.

First up we have these three from Dennis the Vizsla. The first two are some more of the beautiful badges created by none other than the amazing PurpleHatter .



The Purple Hatter and Dennis love to share the "power".


And the third one from Dennis is this best blog award - not sure we really earn this one but we will accept it with grace and thanks to our Viszla furiend.

Have you met Cocorue's new little (and she really IS tiny) sister Tiffy? She sure knows how to make us happy - we love being friends with Coco and Tiffy.

Thanks, Tiffy.

And last up for today's awards is one we have received many times, but who wouldn't love to have more Sunshine?

This beautiful flower came to us from one of our newest furiends, Zoe. If you don't know her, be sure to stop by her blog and say hello. Thanks, Zoe.



And now for the "telling" portion. Many of you wondered about that cabinet that Ciara was in. It is the bottom shelf where Mom keeps all her cleaning rags. She forgot to close the door to the cabinet the other day and the little pipsqueak snuck in there with TD's tennis ball. Yes, it IS a tennis ball although she has managed to remove almost all of the covering.

We had a week of pretty nice days here and then the rain arrived. But we thought we would share a few pics of what we do outside.

Phantom likes to camp out in his corner where he can survey most of his yard AND keep track of where the pupster is.


Thunder escapes to the top of the deck steps when he needs a break from the pupster.

But sometimes the half-siblings do like to hang together
for a quiet moment, and it is usually a very brief moment.


And pupster Ciara heard Mom say we might have snowflakes overnight so she is checking out the air with her snooter pointed high.


Meanwhile TD also likes to spend some time teaching the pupster the facts of life in his yard.

In the video of playtime inside the other day, you saw that Ciara is TD's new toy. Well, Ciara has decided that TD's tail is a very fine toy too.

We have had rain for a couple of days, and now it is turning cold again. So today we are doing a lot of this.


Relaxing with the eyes focused on something???

Yep, you guessed it, keeping tabs on that pupster.


And Phantom is just hanging on his sofa.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Yes Ciara, Tails of the brother ar the best. I am quite fond of Oz's. It's just that there is so much of it to grab and hold onto. What's a pupper to do?

Keep up the good learnin'

Puppy Paws,

Zozo

Kari in WeHo said...

we had no trouble identifying the tennis ball, all of ours look like that or are covered in mud!

Huffle Mawson said...

It looks like Thunder and Phantom are turning into GREAT big brothers for that gorgeous little girl!

Stella said...

We haven't had a recent weigh-in of Ciara, have we? She looks like she has packed a little weight on this last week.

She is my favorite puppy next to Finlay of the Rocky Creek Scotties! Wait, or maybe she is before!

Kisses,
Stella

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

I normally prefer the white faced Sibes like the boys, but Ciara's mask is so cute! I wonder how much it will change. Cute pictures!

Sonic said...

Nothing like some older brothers to keep an eye on you!

Wow, I have to type "cated" for the comment verif- you know, that comment thing. I hate cats!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

We loved the photos.
That old rain cloud is hanging around here too.
Rain , rain go away.
Isn't it wonderful that all the pups have new things to chew on- including fruzzy tails?

Wild Dingo said...

did she double in size since last week? she's HUGE now! ;)

looks like she's doin really well with the boyz...

we had a little girl (human) visit this week and L&J were tickled with her. they'd run up to her, stop short and adore her with kisses, ears completely back and so gentle with her. totally shocked me. thought for sure they'd be rough with her.

BeadedTail said...

Congratulations on your awards! Phantom seems like he'll be very glad when Ciara grows out of puppyhood! Cute photos of all of them!

Tanuki Maxx said...

YD, sometimes with Samantha and June said...

Great "telling" session today!
That little pupster sure knows where to "hide".
I got a funny "hiding" story: when I was just a little pup, I found this laundry basket with clothes in it. I thought it would be really comfy to sleep in it, so I climb in. Dad couldn't find me and he got really really worried. He thought mommy was going to kill him for losing me(I'm mommy's Christmas pressie)! He was so releaved when he found me in the laundry basket sound asleep!

Samantha

Sue said...

Ciara has really grown. Watch out boys, she's catching up with you.

Two Country Poodles said...

You look quite exausted in that last photo...It is quite hard to watch puppies isn't it...We have the same issue in our home.

JD and Max said...

Ciara, you get bigger every post, oh, it's lovely seeing the gorgeous lady you're growing up into! We love how your big bros keep an eye on you - what lovely family shots in this post! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

Alasandra said...

Artemisia says your Mom can come tickle her tummy curls anytime. She LOVES attention and she loves getting where she doesn't belong and sneaking into things too. She also totally destroys our toys. Sounds as if her and Ciara have a lot in common. ~AFSS

Sally said...

Congratulation on all you awards.
And this is a good idea, Phantom.
Relax on the sofa.

Happy weekend.

Nice woooh

Love the outside photos, too cute.

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

Congrats on the awards! You deserve all awards that come your way.
Love the photos of you on the sofa. Where do the folks sit?
Thanks for helping with the house trashing party at my place the other day. The mom still doesn't have things back where they should be. Serves her right I say!
You doggies can trash sooooooo much better than one small kittie like me.

Mango said...

OK, I just have one thing to say... Ciara is HOOGE! She looks like she has doubled in size since she came home. Watch out boys!

Slobbers,
Mango
