Thursday Thinking and Thanking

We are thinking it is going to be a magical day here for us.

Our human nieces and nephew (three of Mom's grandkidlets) are here, all set for some make believe adventure. We are hoping to play along too. The Momster says it is going to be a long summer.

Phantom is content to hang with his pals Mickey and Minnie.

Thursdays are good days for giving thanks. Once again we have received this super duper award. AND we got it from four more blogging furiends. Thanks to Sagira, Dennis, The Feisty Three, and one of our newer pals Daisy Mae. If you don't know any of these great furries, please do stop by and pay them a visit - we know you will like what you find. We love visiting them all the time and want to thank them so much for sharing this award with us.

We are supposed to tell you seven things about ourselves.

  1. It has gotten very warm and humid here so our furs decided it is time to share some of their fluffy softness with the world. We have all been busy spreading it all around our home and our yard. The birds seem to be very happy about it, but the Momster keeps bringing out the purple monster dyson and sucking it up.
  2. Ciara wants everyone to know that she is halfway through her little episode and is very anxious to drop her drawers.
  3. Thunder is hoping to make some great catches in the yard, maybe a snake or two.
  4. Phantom has been hibernating in his crate - it has been a month of storms and he feels better in there.
  5. The Momster is very busy with lots of things and now that school is done, all the little ones are here during the day.
  6. Our cool machine boxes haven't been performing very well so two men are here today doing lots of work to bring in some new ones. They took down a section of our fence so we are all under house arrest until the fence is back in place:(
  7. We are hoping you all have a great weekend and take some time to remember the soldiers who protected our country and world over many years as we celebrate Memorial Day here in the U.S.
  8. And here is a bonus one. We have to give special thanks to our Zoolatry friend Ann for our awesome new header.

We wanted to also tell you about a contest going on over at Mayzie's place. Her humans had a DNA test done to try to find out what is growing in Mayzie's family tree. Please go visit Mayzie and make a guess - it's all for a great cause.


And before we end today's post, we were so happy to hear from Lorenza's Mom. Some of you may have noticed that she hasn't had a post for a few days. She asked us to let you all know that they are fine but have had some misfortune with their internet. They hope to be back soon.

Woos, Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Pee Ess, Thunder wants to tell you that he was snoozing in that photo yesterday and was trying to get away from the pesky sister. He did check for some crumbs but only found a small toy car.

I sure hope you guys get your cool machines back on soon! The humans have decided it's cool enough outside lately that they don't need it...I beg to differ.

I did hear them mention the words "kiddie pool" yesterday.

YD, sometimes with ♥Samantha and ♥June said...

No cool machines and on house arrest? That's totally no fun! We do hope that the cool machines will get fixed soon and get that fence put back up soon.
Phantom, we are sorry about all the storms you have to deal with. We are sending woo extra hugs to comfort woo.

Sam & June

Sunny,Scooter(sometimes Jamie) said...

Congrats on your award! Well deserved. A magical day. That sounds sooo very nice to say!
We LOVE those human pups. Yours are very cute. We have only one, (apparently something called a granddaughter to mom. We think she is GRAND too!) Mom cracked up at the "she is ready to drop her drawers" We thought she wanted those pants off, so whare are those drawers???;)
Our cooling box which Mom calls the A/C is broke too. So we give thanks for FANS!!! And ice. Yum such a cool chewy treat!
Hugs, Sunny and Scooter.
ps did you know Memorial Day is the only day the flag is raised, then lowered to half staff til noon, then back up again?(Mom's military background is always showing up.)
Thanks for telling us about Lorenza! With all the violence going on down there now, we were worried!!

Anonymous said...

I say it's going to be the best summer ever, for you guys! The grandkidlets? We'll also get to see some great photos. Yay.
Now, every time I tell myself I don't have time for comments, you leave me something so interesting/sweet/considerate/provocative :) About them Ciara drawers (BOL) the ones she didn't take down... One time we had a party for one of mom's peanuts and our girl, Rosie, was in Ciara's condition. Well, M kept doing the laundry all night long, because the little kids couldn't understand why the dog couldn't go out and play with them and they kept taking her outside with them where she'd sqwat every time... Ass for your header: Magical. I'm going over to Ann's to praiser her latest masterpiece. And thank you so much about the Lorenza update, love that gilry pup.

Penny and Patches said...

We hope your house arrest ends soon! Our mom lives in fear of our air conditioning going kaputt!

We're glad to know Lorenza and her mom are okay!

JD and Max said...

Hi all - we love these photos! You are all so patient with the human pups, but then we LOVE human pups too! We just spent the afternoon with our favourite puppysitter and her 6 year old granddaughter and we're now pooped! We have been fussed to within an inch of our lives - it's a very tiring business, he he he! Ciara - are we right in thinking that you especially love the little ones, as you always seem to have edged as close to them as you possibly can in the photos we see of you with them?
