Thankful Thursday

We are long overdue on the thanks to our furiends for their many gifts and awards.

First up is a special package that arrived from Mexico. And we all know that is where the lovely Lorenza lives with her Mom. Look at the special wrapping on the gift box.

But what is inside is even more beautiful. Look at this exquisite silver and black bead bracelet that Lorenza's Mom made for our Mom.She has a very small wrist and usually can't find bracelets that don't just slip right off. Lorenza's Mom must have known this because the bracelet fits perfectly, and Mom has already worn it many times. Muchos gracias to our very nice friends Lorenza and Val both for the bracelet and for thinking of our Mom. Besos right back at you.

Lucille, the beautiful Great Dane, and Dennis the Viszla both gave us the Versatile Blogger Award with the pretty butterfly on it. Thank you both very much.

Dennis 's wheel of fortune was on a roll as he also awarded us the Prolific Blogger one too. Oops, we haven't been very prolific lately with our blog but we will try to earn this badge with some upcoming productivity. Momster, are you hearing us???

This special award came to us from both Mack of Mack's Mess and Quinn, The Other White Dog. Since the only four leggers here are dogs, we guess it is quite appropriate for us. This award was "special" for two reasons. First Mack awarded it to Phantom to send him good thoughts for his healing. And this was Quinn's first award and he wanted to share it with Ciara. We learned a lot about TOWD and his mentor Siku, White Dog.

And last but not least, the wonderful pups at 24 Paws of Love gave us this very "strange" award. As they stated on their post, If you've ever owned a Sibe, you know you are strange! We will take that as a compliment and thank them very much.

All of these awards come with lots of rules, but this post is already pretty long. If you would like to know more about them, please visit our awarders' blogs and help yourselves to these great awards. As a bonus, you will meet some great new pals if you don't already know them. We are very grateful to all who shared these great awards with us.

On a sadder note, we were very sorry to learn that
Mica from Petey's Playhouse has crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

Mica was 20 years young - what a beautiful kitty and what a wonderfully long life! Sad woos to Petey and his Mom on the loss of their sweet furry.

Happy Mo-Cats Day to all our feline furiends too!

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Congratulations on your Awards and lovely gifts from Mexico.

20 years is a nice long age for a pet and I'm glad they could be together for such a long time, but I know it doesnt' make it any easier to say good-bye. I'm very sorry!

Take care and hope your cone will be gone soon ;-)

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Mumster's kind words about my mom's ability to handle things made mom laugh, mutter "if she only knew," and then smile for a long while. Thanks so much. I keep telling her that everything will go without a hitch and that the show will be well attended and generate lots of positive feedback, but you know how moms can be...Trust the dog, right?

Holly and Zac said...

Congrats on all those awards. :)

That bracelet is beautiful.

We just tried to leave a comment on another post on here but blogger is not co-operating today at all. :(

We love the group photo ( a couple of post down) of you guys. :)

Happy weekend, and Phantom - get better and heel up soon! :)

Holly and Zac said...

oops...should be heal up soon. :)

Sue said...

What very nice awards and gifts. The bracelet is lovely. Aren't dog people nice?

Jake of Florida said...

Jack and I were in St. Louis over Labor Day. Jake and Just Harry have sibe cousins there -- Alexandra and Chinook -- and we had to show their parents -- one of Jack's four brothers and his wife -- your site and the video of TD and Ciara playing. They loved seeing them -- and we were intrigued at how they play. Very different from our Boychiks!

Wirey love from Jake and Just Harry!

JD and Max said...

Hi everyone!

We've been without internet access for a week now - it's been awful! But now we're back on-line so are having a great catch-up.

We're sorry to hear about all the tribulations you've been having recently Phantom - glad your face ouchie is healing up though. And oh, we had to giggle at Ciara's gardening - he he he! What a talented girl she is.

We fell in love with the twins smile - gosh, we wish we could come round and give them a big schnauzer snuggle each. Just think, one human pup each for us - it would be wonderful!

Well done on all your awards - FH adores that bracelet that Lorenza sent, it's so pretty.

We hope not to be off line for so long again - gosh, we hated not being able to keep up with all your adventures.

Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Hope your weekend was cool and pleasant!

Sierra Rose said...

Oh you pals!!! Look at all the great awards! We will think of our furends past and present...always in our hearts :)

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
