Thinking and Thanking

Thinking is something all of the OP Pack was doing in this photo.

Thunder: I wonder if I can make my way past Phantom and Ciara and get to the loveseat first.

Phantom: I wonder when those thunder boomers are going to go away.

Ciara: I wonder if there is anyone out there who would help me get un-duct-taped.

I don't know what I did to deserve this humiliation.

Velcro was so much easier to undo.

I have thought and thought and thought some more, but I am still stuck with it. What do you mean, another two weeks??? Please say it isn't so.


Meanwhile we are all very thankful to some of our wonderful furiends. Yesterday we hit a homerun with three different blogs awarding us the same award. It has to be a very magical award because we saw it being shared all over blogland.

Rule 1. Thank the person who gave it to you.

So many thanks to Puddles, Mollie Jo and Bobo, and Ginger and Buddy for giving us such a special gift.

Rule 2. Share 9 things about yourself.

  1. Phantom loves pizza.
  2. Thunder loves to hunt for snakes.
  3. Ciara loves to play with TD.
  4. Phantom thinks we will have some more t-storms tonight.
  5. Thunder hopes he can go out in the rain.
  6. Ciara wishes she could go naked again.
  7. We are all hoping to go for a walk soon but Mom says it will be a while before that happens.
  8. We all love to sleep in our crates.
  9. We are all happy to have so many great blogger furiends.

Rule 3. Pass the award along to some bloggers who you think are fantastic.

We don't want to assume too much on this one, but we think it would be fair to award it to all who comment on this post.

Rule 4. Contact Blog award winners.

Consider yourself contacted:)

Guess it is time to do some more of this.

Woos, Ciara the persecuted

Ciara, we think you look very cute in the diaper :)

Congrats on the award!

The Thundering Herd said...

Poor Ciara. Your "time" will be over soon and then, with a little minor surgery, you will never have to worry about it again. It is what you get for growing up a little faster than the humans expected.

Oh poor Ciara...hehehe...I really don't mean to laugh at you but, at least you mom didn't put you on a Wal-Mart bag like I said. It will all bo overs soon...maybe.
Hey Thunder, race you to da couch?

Jake of Florida said...

We're guys, so what do we know?- But our Mom is looking at Ciara and thinking about certain days so long ago!!!

Congratulations on your well-deserved award!

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Mack said...

We all think you look *adorable* in your girlie britches

Oh, dear, Ciara. Sometimes it's not so easy being a girl dog, is it? But if it makes you feel any better, you make duct tape look pawsitively stylish!

Congratulations on your awardie! And guess what? I LUVS pizza, too! What are the odds?

If the duct tape pulls too much furs, you can always try the athletic tape stuff. It comes in loverly colors

Stella said...

Ciara, tell the Momster she did a good job on your bikini bottom!

The weeks will go by fast!


Anonymous said...

I was going to say poor dog, but you've already gotten at least 10 of those. Wonder if any of those duct tape books have this particular use listed?? BOL

What's WITH all this rain????? Good lord, make it stop already!!!!!!!!

Frankie Furter said...

Snake chasing is scary with a capital SSSSSSSSSST !!
Poor Miss C. Two weeks of torture. BAH.

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Congrats on the much deserved award. Ciara DOES look kinda cute in her panties. And the I could swear the in first photo everyone was thinking "how do we get the refrigerator open?"

Huffle Mawson said...

Poor Ciara. Not long now and you'll never have to suffer the indignity of duct tape again.

Congratulations on your award and thanks for sharing!

Sallie said...

Yay! Congratulations on your award!

I'm sorry about your doggie diaper, Ciara.

BeadedTail said...

Miss PuppyPants has taken on a whole new meaning hasn't it Ciara? Congratulations on your award! We all love pizza too Phantom!

Lorenza said...

It was interesting to know your thoughts today!
Looks like mom found a good way to keep that diaper on Ciara!
Congratulations on your Award!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Dory and the Mama said...

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Congratualtions on your new award!
Thank you for sharing what your thinking today.
I hope those thunderboomers go away too.
I loved to read about all your wishes. If only I had a magic wand, I could make some come true. But I don't think Ciara can go naked for awhiles.

Benny and Lily said...

I can't believe mom took your picture with your boxers on.

Ruby's Raiser said...

Sweet baby, you have no idea how cute you look in those pull-up puppypants!

Also, we absolutely love how the colorful magnets are snoot-level on the refrigerator. :D

Ciara you might want to stay away from the love seat (wink wink).

Sapphire said...

hee hee...oops, sorry, Ciara!

Samantha said...

Congrats on your award! Love hearing about all of you - TD; do you really like to chase snakes? Woooo. Scary. What kind? And Ciara - thanks for sharing your dilemma - I've never seen panty-diapers for doggehs, but I feel your humiliation. Praying that the time flies. You wear them well, if that helps.
Big Huggies (hahahahaha!) xoxoxo

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Congratulations on your new award!!! Ciara, I love your new outfit! I think it's rather cool looking! You might not think so but it really is for your own good...and with your good looks...believe's for the best!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Wild Dingo said...

I don't know HOW we got behind on YOUR blog (after all, i never miss the sibe action on the 'net) but i think whatever you decide for obedience is fine. i mean, we have girls in heat in the class all the time and boys who are in tact who want to hump all the time. it's all part of the distraction. i personally do NOT find it annoying at all when a girl in heat is in class. but i can understand your decision and certainly respect it!

i can't believe she's in heat at 5 months. i wonder if it's a tell tale sign of her mental maturity too? people who've commented it's too early for her to show signs of leadership... i wonder if she's just quick to mature? hmmmm... she's a handful that little cutie pie!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

hello op pack its dennis the vizsla dog hay ciara dont wurry trust me yoo ar happyer this way!!! eeven if yoo do luk a littel bit like stretch armstrong in yore shorts!!! only furrier of korse!!! ok bye

Life With Dogs said...

How is she holding up? Sola was a terror for a bit when she went into heat, and then she seemed beat for a week or two. Medication aside, you may still get a little break!

Martha and Bailey said...

Poor little Ciara, sometimes it's hard to be a woman!
Oh gosh now we are all singing!
Seriously hope she is doing OK and not getting cranky!
Congrats on the Award and well done with the Tag.

Tanuki Maxx said...

Too cute for words!
Luv the thinking trio pic!!


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

Poor Ciara. We feel for you. Kitties are lucky they don't have to deal with that problem. And a good thing too since our heats are a lot more frequent! But believe us, those "bloomers" look a whole lot better than some of the stuff we have seen around here!

Fred said...

Poor Ciara! One time Old Girl tried to put me in a pair of tighty whities when I had a hot spot on me bum. Let's just say it did NOT go well.

the booker man said...

awww, miss ciara, i'm so sorry you have to wear that diaper thingie. it will be over soon, and my mama assures me that it's for your own good to wear it. chin up, girlie!!
oh, and of course super hooge gratsers on your shiny award x 3!! ya'll rock!

Sue said...

What would we do without duct tape? I used it on the plastic cone bonnet that my girls wear so often. It's holding one of the crates together after Sky started disassembling it. We've used it inside and outside to repair doggy mishaps over the years, but this is a new use that I hadn't thought of.

It's clouding up again. They promised no rain today, but I think they lied.

Asta said...

Don't be is bikini season and I heawd that the giwls in Oowope go topless so you awe just being soopew stylich and I think vewy bootiful.
Phantom and Thundew, I hope the stowmies subside and you can have some west and then lots of fun
smoochie kisses

Aksharaa said...

Mummy is glad ur mummy understands how she feels, she says she has to re-read that book (NOT SO SOON Mummy!), this time hopefully without her chest aching from holding her breath.
yeah, those are very unusual designs.ask ur mummy to check out their website, if u haven't done that already. they have a lovely range of different things.
we are glad to hear Ciara is doing good.Don't worry about giving her every item on our list. liver is the best choice we think coz it is digested so easily.
we are sure all of you will love it.
wags, Bud n Gin



Is that a bikini your wearing? We've been gone for a while so just wunder'n???

Riley thinks you have a grrrreat bod! Whoo hoo!

Luv, Star and Riley.

Inigo Flufflebum and d'Artagnan Rumblepurr said...

Puppy! How come you have pants? You're still very cute however...

Cloud the Wonder Dog said...

Oh Ciara, you don't look too happy about the duct tape. I'm sorry, but this is one of those times you should probably listen to your mom...


Deborah said...

Ciara, have you seen the new pampers, they are made out of denim and very cool...consider yourself a fashionista!!!
Thanks for the award!

Hi! I'm Sierra-Dog! said...

Don't worry Ciara, your fluff is still magnificent! This too will pass, hopefully soon. Big hugs to Ciara. Being a girl is so tuff!

Cheyenne -Millie said...

Congratulations on that award!

Anna the GSD said...

Ducktape fixes anything! That's what dad says!

Wow, I was gone for a bit and little Mrs. C turns into a woman! Poor girl! At least you have two big brothers to protect your integrity!

The Two Country Poodles said...

Sorry you got duct taped. But we think your mom is super smart for thinking of that.

Wags and Licks,
Mollie Jo & Bobo

Sunny,Scooter(sometimes Jamie) said...

Remember the old song, "Girl, you've become a woman now..." Well Ciara you did it early!!!!
Mom is gonna try the duct tape on Scooter's belly band. Her Daddy always said all you need in this world is WD40 and Duct Tape! lol
He was just about right(as far as fixing stuff he meant)

Mango said...

Miss Ciara,
I thought that you were looking extra lovely lately. Sure enough, now you are all heated up. But those pants! Ick! Don't they have doggie Victoria's Secret to get you into something a little more appropriate?
