Tuesday Telling by Ciara

Well, our assistant missed it again. I turned six months on June 10th and she forgot to check my growing progress (not my gardening progress, but ME, my growing bigger).

Four Months Old

Five Months Old - not too much change there.

Six Months, 12 Days Old - what do you think? Not too much bigger, just a little longer in the legs:) For some reason, I haven't gone through the awkward ears stage. At my last vet visit, I was 36 lbs. and doing very well.

See, Stella, I still have my lovely blankie that your nice Mom made for me - and I can still fit on it. No tears, no chewing of it. But it doesn't get too much use right now - it is just too hot for blankets.

Some of you have asked about the begonias on the deck. Although I probably don't look a lot bigger than I did here on May 11, you can tell by the change in the flowers that this is a current photo, and they are thriving. I don't bother them at all. And I really haven't been doing any digging.

HOWEVER, the Momster has tried several times to put these pots on the floor of the deck. No luck - I really don't like the way she has arranged the flowers, and I keep trying to take them out and redo the pots the way I like them. So for now (and maybe for the rest of the season) they reside on the table - how silly is THAT!!!

Hey, what happened?
I seem to have a leg attached to my back.

Hey big bro, wanna play for a bit?

Guess not, so what's a poor girl to do?
Do you want to come play with me?

Actually, this is what most of our days are looking like with the horrible heat and humidity and thunderstorms that seem to have settled over Kansas.

We also want to ask everyone to cross their paws that Rocky will be found safe very soon. You can read about him here. He was part of a transport that Khyra's Mom did on Sunday. After he met his new owners, he managed to escape from them and has been missing ever since. He has a lot of us worried about him.

Woos, Ciara

Ciara, as long as mom didn't forget to give your official "I made 6 months of your life soooooooooo much better," treats, it's all good!

I put one of Rocky's flyers on my side bar. ! don't get a lot of traffic, but you never know!

Kari in WeHo said...

are you sad about not going through an awkward ears stage?

The Rocky Creek Scotties said...

Must be the age - Ruairi is going through the awkward ear age as well - he is 4 1/2 months old. His ears and tail have outgrown the rest of his body.

We can see a lot of changes in your face - it is starting to mature.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi

Kira The BeaWootiful said...

Wooos Ciara! woo have grown, not only in the legs, but a bit in the ears and face too. I see it is the same at my house, hot and humid with a lot of thunderstorms, Scampi spends his afternoons hiding from the storms...

Thor said...

I can see changes in your face, Ciara. And I wanna play with you!
Hope Rocky is found very soon!

Ms. ~K said...

Oh Ciara, you are growing into a beautiful young lady!
We're doing much of the same thing here, just lazing around in the house out of the miserable heat!
Licks and sniffs,
Zack, Sassy and Buddy

PS...so sad about Rocky.

Martine said...

Wow Ciara, you are sure looking more and more grown up each time we see you! You are so beautiful and don't think you will have funny ear stage... not sure we are good judges because some would say Captain is in a perpetual state of awkward ears!

houndstooth said...

I would love to play with you! Nobody around here is much into playing besides me. I don't understand why humans get so uptight about it when we try to make improvements for them!


AFSS said...

I am coming right over to play Ciara. ~Fenris

We are purring for Rocky, we hopes he is found soon.

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Oh my!

What a beaWOOOOOOtiful Siberian Princess woo are!

Thanks fur the pawesome updates!

Woo look pretty khomfy there in OP KS!

PeeEssWoo: Thanks fur sharing Rocky's status here! All the help we khan get has to help!

Gus said...

We are crossing paws for Rocky, and hoping he gets found soonest. You are growing up bootiful, and clearly have taken over the ruling of the roost there.


The Thundering Herd said...

Those humans are so hard to train, aren't they. Cheoah says you are soon going to be bigger than her (41.7 #'s).

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

Ciara, woo are so beautiful! Mom just loves woo's "bunny ears"! :)
We hope that Rocky will be found soon and safe. We will keep our paws crossed fur him.
Hugs to you and the boys.

Sam & June

Frankie Furter said...

Happy BEEEELATED 6mo. Birthday.
I don't think you need to worry about having awakward ears!!!
I DO think your mom should listen to you about those flower thingys. You might be a FLOOOORIST in the making. I'm just sayin'.

Martha and Bailey said...

Ciara, you just get more and more beautiful.
Imagine your mom forgetting!
We were at the vet yesterday and saw a siberian puppy that so reminded us of you - even more beautiful in real life.
Good work not eating the flowers - we sometimes have a chew at ones on the deck - well busy lizzies taste quite nice and don't some people put pansies in their salad?
We loved all your pics and we too are keeping our paws crossed for the safe return of Rocky - a very scary and worrying situation.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We've all got our paws crossed for Rocky.

You sure are growing up.

Jake of Florida said...

Awkward ears? What happens?

We have our own ear problems -- keeping them down instead of popping up like mine -- but didn;t know ears could be awkward.

Awkward ears or not, you are growing into a beautiful lady, Ciara!!

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Sue said...

You're getting some long legs, but you still look quite petite next to Thunder.

Stay cool. We're sleeping in the basement a lot because it's nice and cool there.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Hi Ciara - we can see the difference for sure but you still are a cute little girl! And we understand about big brothers not wanting to play - all of us have gone through it (we even count when Gus doesn't want to play with Stella, because he was first one in the litter to be born, so he is older). But we (Stella and Gus) would love to play with you - you are bigger but we are guessing it would be super fun! But we understand about the yucky weather - it is here too.

We are sending lots of purrs and prayers for Rocky - we hope he comes home soon!!

Ooh, our verification word is pawsweer - that sounds perfect for a doggie blog!

JD and Max said...

Hi Ciara - oh, you definatey are becoming most gorgeously leggy - sigh.....! We thought of you when we saw Miss Husky the other day - oh, how we wish we could meet you in pupson! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

The Two Country Poodles & Uncle Puppy said...

Ruby and Penny said...

Hi Ciara
You are growing more beautiful every day. We did notice that your V is not as large.
Love Ruby & Penny
Pees - we are crossing our paws that Rocky will be found asap. We know what this situation feels like as Penny ran away the day we picked her up.

Mama Monster said...

oh wow you are all beautiful!!!! and i love your deck and flowers!!! gorgeous!

mayziegal said...

Happy belated 6 month birthday, Ciara! I thinks you're growing up so pretty! Gosh, 36 pounds. You weigh almost as much as I do and I'm a full grown doggie. I wonder how much you're gonna weigh when you're all the way growed up?

We most definitely have sweet Rocky in our prayers. I hopes he decides to find his way home soon!

Wiggles & Wags,

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Ciara, you are actually beginning to look more graceful beautiful adult and less cute pup. You will soon be turning heads all over the blog world! Hot and unreasonably humid here, too! We are becoming vampire dogs to beat the heat (only get active at night)...we are so hoping that Rocky hears all of us and gets found soon.

3 doxies said...

Gosh, you weighs almost...ALOT mores than me. I've nevers been good withs da numbers. But you is a heck of alot biggers than me...just don't tells my ground hog that, ok.
I sees lots of changes in you Ciara...waaaay longer legs, little changes in your muzzle, and I thinks your head has gotten bigger too...I mean that in da most kind way..I's not pulling your chain eithers. I'm sures it is just to holds your brain.

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

We have been crossing all our paws for Rocky.

Aksharaa said...

Mummy is asking you not to grow up, in fact she would prefer us to grow backwards and be puppies again!! silly silly mummy

Btw,We both are hoping there's some nice important day coming up for Buddy soon.w stand a chance to get special treats.
buddy and Ginger

KB said...


Your face looks much more mature, all of a sudden in the last "size" photo. I think that your snout grew longer and your cheek bones became more angular. You're a beautiful girl!

I agree about Rocky. All paws are crossed here.

Dory and the Mama said...

We will come play with you Ciara!!!

Smileys & Snuggles!
Dory, Jacob and Bilbo

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

It is ok Mom our Mom forgets things too. She says there is to much in her head being so old that something has to fall out.. hehe
You are looking awesome sweet girl.. We love the pictures. The last one is so sweet...

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Tucker said...

Yes you're growing very fast, just hard to see it in the pictures. I can see it in your face.

Licks and wags...

Huffle Mawson said...

Sagira said...

I sure do hope that Rocky is found as well.

Wow, you are getting so big Ciara. Like you grew up before I even knew it.

Stella said...

Dear Ciara:

My Mom loves it that you still have the baby blankie she made you. Thats very nice.

She thinks you are more machoor looking but just as beautiful.

Sorry, dear, its just too hot to play!


BeadedTail said...

Ciara, you are such a pretty 6 month old girl! You are growing up quite a bit and we thinking it's nice that you have an interest in gardening too! Our grandpa was complaining about the Kansas heat, humidity, storms and wind the other day too. It's cool here and we don't have thunderstorms so you all are welcome to come on over!

Kasha said...

Ciara IS getting big! What a cutie. I can't believe they would share a bed. Those are some loving siblings!

BRUTUS said...

OK, so now I can see the progress (after that embarrassing mistake last week). Good idea to take regular photos of a growing puppy against the same backdrop - need to keep that in mind (just in case LOL).

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

My mom says seeing the pictures of you and Thunder all cuddly make her day.

You are definitely growing. I didn't have an awkward ear stage either, but Steve sure did. Maybe you'll be like me.

Please tell Thunder that I'm going to keep practicing my roll over so I can perform it for him soon.


Lorenza said...

Hi, Ciara!
Month by month you are getting more beautiful!
I'd love to be there playing with you!
Paws crossed for Rocky!
Kisses and hugs

Life With Dogs said...

You may have to give someone a little reminder nudge as you near the one year mark. :p

mrd23 said...

Dear Ciara,
you are most certainly getting bigger!
I find that some humans don't appreciate a dog with artistic spirit. Your Momster should let you rearrange those flowers - but she doesn't understand.
I rearrange stuff too - but its not often appreciated :(

your pal,

Wyatt said...

Ciara, you are such a good little gardener. You really have an eye for arranging plants and pots. We could use an extra paw around here!


Cyber-sibes said...

Happy Half-Year Birthday, ciara! Isn't it illegal to be so cute???

You look a little bigger and a little older in the face I think :) You look like such a sweetie :)

Mack said...

Ciara girl,
You are really growing fast! And you get prettier every month!

Stay outta this heat!

Wow!! Ciara is really growing up! It seems like the other day that you got her! She looks really big until she's next to her brother and then she looks like a puppy! Love the pictures!!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Honey the Great Dane said...

Hi Ciara - sorry I'm so late visiting - my human has a lot on at the moment! :-)

Wow - you ARE growing up! 6 months already! I can't believe it!! Although I agree with Holly - when I see you next to your brothers, you're suddenly a little puppy again - hee! hee!

It does seem very hot there - so weird when we're quite chilly here coz it's mid-winter in Australia!

twinkietinydog said...

Ciara, you've grown into a lovely young lady. I love how you handle the men in your life.

Wild Dingo said...

OH my dawg, your face has changed a lot at 6 months too. it's no longer a short snout puppy face! boo hoo! BUT: you are gorgeous. Thank DOG for that!

i say it's time to hone in on your table surfing skills so you can continue to garden. I hear Ruby over at the Herd Annex can give you some lessons on that!
