Guarding the Kingdom




A very beautiful Monday morning here.



We are out protecting the fortress from all those little critters that like to live under the castle. But we think our humans have some spring sprucing up work to do - this castle really needs a paint job.



Meanwhile, Phantom finally makes an appearance here as he takes the high lookout point. We would like to hope he is watching for intruders, but he is really on the prowl for those evil t-storms headed our way tomorrow.

Hope you all have a great week.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Oh Phantom, lets don't talk about those awful storms so early!

I want to just get through the spring and summer without going crazy over storms. I know you would like that too.

Where, oh, where is the shut off button!

Kisses,
Stella

The storms came through here around 5 this morning. We all crammed in the big bed with mom and papa! The rumbles were shaking the house! I hope your storms are quieter.

Love the castle! Do you get to play in it?

Wags,

We heard that you're in for storms tomorrow. here's hoping they pass north of you. We don't want them.

Ms. ~K said...

Yes, with springtime comes the sprucing up, allergies, and the dreaded t-storms!
Sending you strength Phantom, from Zack, who understands!
xoxo

soggibottom said...

Who ever Phantom is looking at,looks as if it is his castle and he is KING of it :-) xxx

Mr. Pip said...

Oh Phantom sorry about the storms - I know you don't like them! Try not to worry, they will be over before you know it.

Your pal, Pip

Honey the Great Dane said...

How nice for you to have nice weather - although it's so strange to see my friends all enjoying spring arriving when we're going into autumn! :-)

Slobbers,

Isnt it almost Mole season? Happy hunting to you all.

Remy and Flash

Au and Target said...

Your garden looks like fun. But thunderstorms are less fun. We've got one now and it's not even monsoon season. Weird.

BeadedTail said...

We're glad you were able to get out and enjoy the day before those Kansas thunderstorms return! Ciara can finally get the garden ready once the ground is nice and wet too. :)

houndstooth said...

All three of you are looking pretty good in my book! I think you'd better be careful about making home improvement cracks, though. The next thing you know, a paintbrush is tied to your tail and you're doing manual labor!

The Thundering Herd said...

We hope you keep those thunderstorms at bay, Phantom!

Amber and Nala said...

Hope you kept all of the intruders at bay! :)

Kisses,
Nala

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

Vigilance is what it's all about, amirite? You have to protect the home front at all times. I bet you're doing the best job in the world, too.

Pepsi the Lazy Bum said...

You got a nice fortress! Hope Phantom is keeping the nasty storms away :)

Woofs,
Pepsi

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Glad the castle is secured! Hope Phantom's wish that the T-storms miss you comes true! Enjoy the first week of Spring...and stay healthy

bichonpawz said...

Looks like you have a very nice castle to play in! Stay safe during those nasty storms!!! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

Holly and Khady said...

We hope the storms miss you so Phantom has a restful day. Be sure to watch for those kritters though, you know how sneaky those evil squirrels can be!

♥MONA + MOMMY TOO♥ said...

Hey there,

There is nothing better than being home with Mommy again. Thanks so much for waiting for us to come back.

It is so good seeing Phantom on lookout and looking good. I'm scared of Thunder busters too.

Weenie was eying that cut little cow that Ciara was sitting next to.
It is adorable. Mommy has a collection of ceramic cows that she loves.

Love & {{{huggies}}}...Mona & Weenie

ArtemisiaFSS said...

We are purring the evil T-storms stay away.

Wild Dingo said...

is it teeshirt time for Phantom? i've heard teeshirts are good for tstorms... but i know he may not like them from past experience.

here's hoping the tstorms pass quickly! fear not Phantom! they are only noise! kisses from Juno and a high-paw from Loki...

Ruby and Penny said...

We still have 87 tonnes of snow. Spring has not sprung here yet.
We wish we could play in your yard.
Love Ruby & Penny
Pees - Hope the storms pass you by.

Peggy Frezon said...

Any day without snow would be welcome around here! I hope not storms come your way.

ForPetsSake said...

Every army needs a general...and what a fine one you have perched there atop it all. As for those troops, they look like they're ready for some drills!

Anya said...

We love it to see you outside
so so cute shots !!!!
You are such a beauty's :-)

Hugs from us

Amber-Mae said...

Phantom sure has some really good sixth sense. He's looking all worried already.

sprinkles said...

Phantom is looking as handsome as ever.

I hope the thunderstorms decided not to stop by there. We've had a very wet spring so far.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Is your castle still safe? Do I need to help come guard?
Tell the thundererers,, to go away!
