Tuesday Thanks and Trots . . .

. . . instead of Thanks on Thursday and Walking Wednesday:)

We usually do our thanking on Thursday, but the Momster said we needed to get this award posted before we forget (translation, before SHE forgets).

The very handsome Five Sibes gave us this very classy award.

To accept the award, we need to select blogs we deem worthy of the Stylish Blogger Award and share some fun or interesting facts about ourselves. The Five Sibes Mom told some interesting facts about herself, but the Momster says that she will let us share a couple of things about her first. Then we will tell you one thing about each of us.

1. The Momster was a teacher in her previous life. She has taught French and Math to middle and high school students. She often misses the classroom, but she gave it up to become a full-time Grandma Nanny, and that is one role that she really loves.

2. The Momster wishes someone would invent a way to fatten up her feet so she could find shoes and boots to fit her very long, very skinny feet.

3. The Momster has a birthday coming up next month - she is going to turn - what do you mean we can't tell our readers how many years you are???? Mom says it is enough years now that she wants to forget about counting, and she says she is finally starting to feel old, old in body and old in spirit. But we do our best to keep her young at heart.

4. Phantom wants everyone to know that he is doing his best to eat. Parmesan cheese and pasta seem to be the biggest hits.

5. Thunder thinks he should be allowed to finish whatever is left in Phantom's bowl so we don't waste all that good food.

6. Ciara has finally learned that she really doesn't HAVE to go outside every day of the week at 4:30 a.m. The Momster is very grateful for this achievement, especially on the weekends.

We would like to share this award with each of the following four bloggers:

Rottover - they have a new blog - be sure to stop by HERE and visit them.

Tsar and the Portuguese Water Dogs

K, R, and KB from Romping and Rolling in the Rockies

Doris and Gizmo from Crocheting in Georgia

We would love to share it with everyone because we think all our furiends have very stylish blogs. But this time we thought we would just pick a few. Many thanks to our pals at Five Sibes. If you don't know them, please pay them a visit HERE.

We seem to have posted a lot of sleepy time posts lately. So here is a short video of our Tuesday Trot.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

What a handsome award and you have chosen some great blogs to share it with. I hope everyone visits each of them!

Momster may be feeling old in spirit but old is just another name for being wise, experienced, and actualized. We are so honored to march along next to her.

Pasta and Parmesan sounds like a delicious temptation for Phantom. Glad he is eating.

Thank you for sending healing energy to my sister, Puff. She is home from her final Heartworm dose at the Vet and now we just believe and hope that in 4 months when she is retested that those icky worms will be gone! We believe that all of your wonderful prayers and woofs have helped saved her life!

Frankie Furter said...

Congratulations on your award. You certainly deserve it.
Hey I am glad to hear that the Parm. cheese is workin. It is one of the bestest tricks that I have ever taught my mom. She just won't do it very often.
It was very much Thoughtful of you to give the award to Rottover to make them feel welcome in Blogville.

Great, now you've given me something else to worry about. I don't think I'd look very good without a tail:(

jen said...

Congratulations on your award!
And good choice of food Phantom!

Stella said...

Ciara looks like she thinks she might lose TD, so she stays close!

Phantom looks like he enjoys his walk, checking out some of the scenes of the neighborhood. Good on the Parm and Pasta. I buy those big bags of finely shredded cheese and add a little to Stella's kibble and she loves it.

Congrats on the Stylish Award . . .you're there!

Jo and Stella

Sam said...

Congrats on the award!

Parmesan cheese - hmm, that's a good choice, Phantom. Hey, what ever keeps you healthy and eating is a GOOD thing!

And I've got to admit - #2 is pretty funny! Sounds kind of like me with jeans.. except I either need to fatten my legs or slim my waist!

Teddy said...

Thanks for sharing those fun facts about your family! We love parmesan cheese and pasta too :) I've very easy to eat. Good job Ciara on learning to sleep in...I'm sure your mom likes that :) And thanks for sharing some info on your mom.


KB said...

Way to go on the well-deserved award! We at Romping are not even close to has classy as you are but thank you!

I love the details about you four. I'm happy to hear that Phantom is eating - and even fairly healthy stuff!

The shadows in your video are great. It's like a dance between Phantom, your shadow, and his shadow!

Thanks again.

Mrs. JP said...

Wow, how did you film that and walk them at the same time? You are very talented and I must disagree with one point. You are not old in spirit! No way, just from reading your blog I know this.
Thanks for the video.

Sue said...

Thank you for the award. We'll post it as soon as Mom can think of something interesting about herself to post.

Our Mom also has a birthday next month. You two can celebrate together. We wish Ciara would tell Bailey that it's OK to sleep past 4 AM. Our Mom gets crabby when she has to get up that early.

Congrats on the award! We loved getting to hear more things about you all. I have narrow feet that I've given up buying narrow shoes for because it is hard to find them anymore. I was so glad when Riley finally started sleeping through the night, so I know how happy you are about Ciara not getting up at 4 in the morning!

Elyse (and Riley)

Khongrats on the pawesome award!

Those Five Sibes are furry inkhredible pups too!

The DN has the same skinny foot problem - Mom would love to help her too!


Phantom SO knows how to use that tail!

I guess one of the only benefits to being snowless is the furry khool shadow walks we khan enjoy!

Bonjour, OP Pack from a former French student to the former French teachers! That's a nice post! Love hearing the interesting facts! So glad Phantom is eating! The FiveSibes are blushing (in their own way) at the "handsome" compliment and Khyra's "furry inkhredible" comment! They are wooing up their "thank woos" right now! Great walkie videos...the Pack's coats are just beautiful! Love those fluffy tails!!!
