Sunday Late Edition

Rather a blah day here, cold and wet for the first day of May. But we wanted to at least share some fun photos from our week. I also wanted to thank all of you for the wonderful birthday wishes. I had a great day and I will share with you later this week the special surprise the Momster got for me.

We actually had a few spectacular sunny days here in OP, true springtime weather. And just wait until you see our yard.

Just chilling by the playset - no new residents trying to move in to the lower level of our condo. And we hear the new paint job is going to be happening soon.

Enjoying a gorgeous afternoon and hoping we were going to get a walk - and we DID!

Yes, the grass is nice, maybe not as much fun as the no-sibe zone.

There it is - and it is still intact. Ciara is proud to tell you that there have been no breaches of the border.

Just passing by.

And yes, the hostas are flourishing.

The new fence has been such a success that the Momster is getting braver.

Do you see what I see? Fresh, new, young plants above me in the planters. And look behind me, she has even dared to put out two pots with plants in them.

Seriously, Mom, do you really think this is going to happen this year? WHAT???? You are putting ME, Thunder, in charge of protecting the pots???? Now we are sure you have lost your mind.

What was that? Where is Phantom? We haven't forgotten to include the other member of the pack. Poor Phantom is sick again.

Phantom posed for this shot earlier in the week when he was having a good day. Look at that smile.

But he finished his meds on Thursday, and by Saturday all his sickies have returned. He will be off to the vet again tomorrow.

Ciara has her paws crossed for her big brother to be feeling better.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Beautiful pics! Beautiful yard! Thunder, we know you can be a good watch dog over those planters! And Ciara, wow, you didn't breach the fence...pawesome girl! Phantom, what a handsome smile you have - truly megawatt! We are all thinking of you, and praying you will get rid of those sickies very soon. Good luck at the vet's tomorrow. Husky hugs coming your way.

♥I am Holly♥ said...

What well-behaved doggies you are, guys! Look at all those plants!

So sorry to hear that Phantom is sick again. Paws crossed that he feels better very soon!

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

We're so sorry we missed a birthday. Please accept our belated happy birthday wishes! And we will most certainly cross our paws for Phantom. We are so sorry he's not feeling well.

Frankie Furter said...

Oh NO... I am so very much sorry to hear that Phantom has the sickies. I am joining Ciara with my paws tightly crossed fur him to be much better soon.

I loved the tour of your beautiful yard. The no Sibe Zone is just lovely... butt I am still thinking it would be STELLAR with a Sibe or two in there.

scotsmad said...

Glad you could get out and enjoy that lovely garden. Plants are looking good. Thunder, you are going to have to watch Ciara.

We're crossing our paws for Phantom, too. We're sorry to hear that he's feeling sick again.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

When I was about 12 my family moved. Of course we got a puppy :-) My mother planted some flowers in the yard and put some chicken wire around them. One day I overheard her saying, "Daisey, STAY OUT OF THE FENCED-IN AREA!!" I started laughing at the absurdity of this command - like Daisey knew what the FENCED-IN AREA was. But you know what? She never dug up those flowers after that!!

Channeling my mother: PHANTOM, FEEL BETTER!!

Gentle rottie kisses!

Furkidsmom said...

Your garden is looking pretty good!

We're sending purrs, prayers and wags to Phantom.

All of you have been good to obey the rules. We'll be getting some beautiful flowers to look at soon!

Poor Phantom. Hope he is not in too much discomfort. We are crossing our paws for him too.

Kari in WeHo said...

Beautiful photos but poor Phantom :(


Wyatt said...

Ciara, I can't believe you are being such a good dog..I have already excavated some of my Mom's new plants!
Sorry your big brother is feeling bad again. I'm crossing my paws real hard and Stanzie is too.


Shawnee the Shepherd said...

Pawsonally, I do think Ciara be lulling the hoomans into a false sense of sekurity. I mean, that is wot I would has done at her age. Not now, of course. Stop laffing. Sorry Thunder has the sickies. And Happy Birfday!

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

The Power of The Paws!!!

PeeEssWoo: Hey Ciara...I think she's taking the bait!

BeadedTail said...

Thunder, we're glad you had a great birthday!

Ciara, looks like there's lots of new play things, we mean pretty flowers on the deck for you to, uhm, look at!

Phantom, we're crossing our paws and sending purrayers that you feel better soon!

24 Paws of Love said...

Protecting the pots, BOL! Sounds like a little reverse psychology!! Do you really think they will fall for it MOM??

Paws crossed for Phantom. We all hope you feel better real soon. <3

Au and Target said...

Oh no, we missed your birthday!!! Sorry. Wishing you squizzles and treats and hugs.

We’re taking a blogging break. Back in 3 weeks!

Clive said...

Paws crossed for Phantom!

Well done Ciara on leaving the garden flowers alone! We hope you leave the pots alone as well!!

We hadn't had about that book that your Mom mentioned to us yesterday but we are going to google it now!

take care

TDK, the pics of you and Ciara are fabulous!

Tommy (and the Chans too!)

Reilly / Bree said...

I hope Phantom is feeling better soon - poor guy that is no fun having the sickies. The photos were wonderful in the garden and it is looking very green and pretty.

Tanuki Maxx said...

Brilliantly beautiful pics!
Love the smile Ciara puts on against the sunlight!!
We'll keep our paws and fingers crossed for Phantom!
Hope he gets well again soon!!

Amber DaWeenie said...

Da most important ting....we haves all 44 paws crossed for sweet Phantom. He gots to get better soon. All our good vibes and Florida sunshine is on da way.

Next ting....Da NO SIBE ZONE seems to be intact. Gorgeous flowers!

Pedro said...

I'm so sorry Phantom isn't feeling well. My mom & I will be thinking of him. My mom says nice hostas! Ours are coming up but it's only a matter of time til the deer come and mow them down. Hostas must be sweet?


Sue said...

Everything is very green here, too but will be moldy green soon if the rain doesn't stop.

I hope Phantom is feeling better. Poor guy can't catch a break.

Suka said...

Phantom, I am so furry sorry you are sick again. My paws are crossed that you heal, and quickly!, and I am also sending you lots of positive thoughts and prayers! Get well soon!!

Ciara, I love how you are nonchalantly wondering around the No-Sibe Zone. If anything just happens to occur in the No-Sibe Zone you can just blame it on the bunnies and squirrels. Or neighborhood cats!


p.s. Your yard, and your mom's plants, are very pretty! Hope they stay that way! BOL! ;->

George the Lad said...

Oh Phantom sorry to here your not feeling to well, my paws are crossed to ;)
Well done Thunder and Ciara for looking after moms plants. Love the ones on the deck, you must show us them again when they have grown.
Have a good week
See Yea George xxx

brooke said...

We came over from the Dog Foster Mom!
Hope Phantom feels better!
BTW, I love the head tilt in the banner photo! :)

Mrs. JP said...

Oh, dear friend, I hope your Phantom is gonna feel better. He has such a sweet smile. Actually, all your pack does. I tell you, Ciara has my heart. I just love the picture where she's looking up and her eyes are closed by the "fence."
You may be onto something with that fence dealio! Get you, the brave soul putting those planters and pots out! Neva, Neva, Neva give up!

Anna the GSD said...

Feel better Phantom!! GO AWAY SICKIES!!!! All our paws are crossed for you!!!

soggibottom said...

Huffle Mawson said...

Poor Phantom. I send my best purrs for him!

KB said...

Poor Phantom. At least you've probably learned something about what the problem is from the fact that he responded to the meds. Our paws are crossed here too.

The momster is getting very very bold! I bet that Ciara is lulling her into a sense of security. And then, Boom! Our R has done that to us many times :)

Just kidding... Maybe your puppy is growing up. Funny, she still looks small to me. Perhaps that's because I met her as a puppy.

What beautiful green grass and flowers!

Tucker The Crestie said...

Feel better, Phantom! We're crossing our paws for you!

Mango said...

Our paws are crossed for Phantom too. Hope the nice weather and a trip to the vet will help.

I am amazed that the wee little fence is still standing. What good dogs.


MyFavoritePupJasmine said...

Oh my- what BEAUTIFUL DOGS!!!

I just found your blog (because you commented on my friend's blog!)

But I'm happy you did! Now we can be friends too! =)

Sapphire said...

Ruby and Penny said...

It is still to cold in Thunder Bay to think of plants. We can't plant anything outside until the full moon in June.
Paws all crossed for Phantom.
Love Ruby & Penny

Gus said...

Poor Phantom...we hope the vet can help him feel better again. And we think you all are being wonderfully restrained about those plants and fences and things.

WE know you are just lulling the Mom into a false sense of security and then...............

Oskar said...

Wow your yard is stunning, great job!

Get well soon, Thunder!

And we are sorry that Phantom is sick again - we are sending him tons of get well purrs and prayers!! We hope he is better soon!

Martine said...

We are sending healing thoughts your way Phantom.

Stay away from the pots!!! you don't want to dirty your beautiful furs little girl!


Julia Williams said...

What a beatiful yard and garden you have!! My paws are crossed for Phantom too, and hope he is better now!

Amber-Mae said...

OH Thunder, you look sooo goofy in that 1st picture! Those pictures are very nice. You pups pose very nicely. Poor Phantom. I hope the next round of medication will get rid of his sickies for good.

Bailey said...

Sorry your brother is feeling sick. What a beautiful back yard. We are in charge of taking care of the plants, too. Mom is also thinking of fencing for the veggie gardens. She would prefer we learn to stay out. With Katy joining the fun, I don't see that happening.

Ruby's Raiser said...

Oh Phantom, we are sending all the power of our little paws your way. Hope this week finds you feeling a little better.

Twinkietinydog said...

What gorgeous photos, as usual. I can't believe the boy had another relapse. What can I say? Good luck buddy and good luck to the entire family too...

I am not sure how long your resolve can last, but the hostas do look pretty!

Our paws are crossed for Phantom, too!


Lorenza said...

My paws are crossed for my dear Phantom!
I hope everything went well at the Vet and he is feeling better today!
Kisses and hugs

mayziegal said...

What happy, happy pictures! I'm so proud of you for not digging up mom's plants, Ciara. Pawsonally, I don't know if I would be able to resist.

My paws are crossed for Phantom, too. I sure hope he feels better soon. Please give him a little kiss for me, okay?

Wiggles & Wags,

Tweedles -- that's me said...

My paws are of course crossed for you Phantom

Elyse and Riley said...

You are mighty brave, indeed, to put those new plants up on the deck! We haven't had a potted plant outside on our patio since Riley was about 6 months old and she completely dug up the flower pot we had out back! Now Grandma wants to put a hanging planter up on the fence, but we just haven't gotten around to doing it yet.

I still love that little barrier you put up for the No Sibe Zone! It's very attractive and we can't believe it's kept the Sibes out so far!

Elyse and Riley

Cyber-sibes said...

Beawootiful pics - looks like maybe your mom will get a chance to enjoy her flowers this year, huh? Paws crossed fur Phantom.

Sagira said...

Looks like the momster did it, she outsmarted you guys with the fence. You're all being so good. :)

ForPetsSake said...

What a lovely garden! I hate hearing that Phantom is sick...many hugs
