Thursday's Thanks and Tale of the Tail

We are really amazed - we got the Stylish Blogger Award again - and again - and again.

Thanks to Jack and Moo, Twinkie, and Blair (we just can't bring ourselves to refer to you as Bad Blair).

Now to list some things about us, and we thought we would also include a tidbit about the six little grandbipeds:

  1. Phantom really did kiss Ciara yesterday, but the Momster wasn't quick enough to catch it with the flashy beast.
  2. Ciara has begun her Spring tilling of the yard:(
  3. Thunder is wondering when the bunnies and snakes are coming back.
  4. Brady Bear is now standing on his own for about 20 seconds!!!
  5. His big brother T made a beautiful birthday cake for the Momster out of mosaic tiles.
  6. Boy twin J has 15 lbs. and 2 in. on his Girl twin sister C. He is a BIG boy and she is a little Sweet Pea still.
  7. Oldest Girl grandbiped K just turned 7 and went to her first Father/Daughter dance.
  8. California Boy grandbiped J was named Student of the Month for the third time this year in his first grade class.

We think just about everyone in Blogville has received this beautiful award, but please feel free to accept it from us if you would like it.

And now for the Tale of the Tail:

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Gus said...

hmmmm...we thought the video was pretty funny, but Teka is now feeling the lack of a tail to practice on. She will just keep chasing mine, I guess.


KB said...

I enjoyed hearing all the news of your pack, human and dog! Good job Brady Bear!

The tail-chasing video is too funny. Our dog R still has moments of catching a glimpse of his tail and trying to pounce on it, with many howls of laughter from us.

houndstooth said...

BOL! I love that video! Those tails are so elusive!


Tanuki Maxx said...

LOL! That's really hilarious! Cute cute cute!
Wow! Phantom really gave Ciara a smooch? It's great to hear that all is well with your pack, humans and doggies!

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

Hmmm...Ciara and Phantom are making a love connection? And then Phantom sees Ciara acting like a goofball, chasing her tail and has second thought...

It's always great to learn more about our blog friend. Your grand bipeds are amazing, as I am sure you know!

Pepsi the Lazy Bum said...

A kiss? that phantom is getting to be a softie! Ciara is a dog for sure, only they chase tails!

Sue said...

Fudge was chasing his tail this morning. He does it when he feels he's not getting enough attention. We're having a thunder storm and we were trying to calm Morgan, so Fudge provided some entertainment.

Mrs. JP said...

I love that part of the video where she stops, looks at her tail, and goes for it again. So cute.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

The problem with chasing one's tail is that it can run faster than woo.

Sagira said...

Congrats on your award!

The video was too funny. Ciara, you are so funny.

I think the world might be coming to an end. Phantom kissing Ciara and my sister Starr is actually playing with Bokeh. She has NEVER played with a dog before in her 10 years on earth. LOL

Anonymous said...

Will Ciara be going to the Father/Dog dance?

jen said...

LOL! That is the best video EVER!

Congrats on your award:)


Ha I can't believe Phantom... no way no way kissed ciara... look at her. I'd like to point to exhibit a- video of a nutty.

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

Congrats on your award. I love finding out more about you.
Your video is so funny, I think you need to tell the humans to send it into American Funniest Videos, I think you have a chance at some prize$$$$.

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

Fist we wondered if Ciara was part Percheron.... Then we wondered whether she was part kitty!!!!

the booker man said...

Hi guys,

Congrats on the award!

Phantom kissing Ciara....that's cute, hopefully there will be a next time that is captured on the camera. :)

Miss Ciara - what are you doing with your tail?, have you only just noticed it is

Thanks for the visit, we shall still be around here.... might even get a post up. But after the last post about facebook we didn't want anyone to think we had disappeared there if we don't post for a while. :)

We hope you are all having a nice Sunday.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Yepper Mom is home. We were all so excited when she got there. Mom says all wiggle waggles. Of course Mom is not allowed anywhere without us all. We wouldn't want her to disappear again...
