Thankful Thursday and Happy Cinco De Mayo

Today Thunder wants to say thanks to some pups and peeps.

First up, the Honorable Mayor of Blogville, Mr. Frankie Furter, sent Thunder a wonderful birthday card.

Awww, cute puppy and cute stuffy.

You are one of our favorite friends too, Frankie Furter. Thanks so much for remembering my barkday in such a nice way.

Now we want you to take at good look at this photo.

What does it remind you of? Something delectable you might find in your yard?

Hmmmm, it smells good, wonder how it tastes?

Well, if you thought I was eating some of those tasty rabbit pellets that appear in the grass, you were on the right track, but you were a little bit wrong.

Those pellets came out of THIS bag!!!! Rabbit food for DOGS!!! Can you believe it?

I am not kidding you! AND the Momster bought it for me as a special surprise for my birthday. It was so good and I shared it with Ciara. Mom said Phantom has to wait to try it until his tummy is better. Ciara and I only get to have a few pieces added to our regular kibble because we don't want to upset our tummies with too much of something new. But let me tell you - it is really yummy.

Thanks, Mom - that was a great present.

We also want to thank Max the Quilt Cat for picking us as the winners in his blogaversary contest. We were so surprised when Max sent us an email to tell us we had won. We only just met Max and the rest of his furamily this week. We feel very lucky and special to have won a $10.00 gift card to use at

We are hoping Mom will use it to get us some more of that great duck jerky the White Dog Army sent to us. By the way be sure to stop by the White Dog Army and welcome the newest recruit to the troops - YoYo. He is a handsome boy and so lucky to find his forever home with the WDA and family. We are thankful today for the wonderful humans all of the White Dogs have.

We also want to wish all of you a Happy Cinco de Mayo Day - have lots of fun on this festive day.

Happy Cinco De Mayo!

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Happy birthday, Thunder! Wow... LOTS of great doggy birthdays this week!

Hmmm... that precise kibble is on our radar for Sis, but I wasn't about to switch during prime allergy season. Nice to know you enjoyed it!

LOVE the Cinco de Mayo photo.

Remington said...

Happy Birthday! That food looks it good? You all look great in your Cinco de Mayo pic! Enjoy the day, my friends!

Frankie Furter said...

I am very much glad that you like the card.

I had a SAMPLE bag and Sample can of that Instinct RABBIT Flavored stuffs... and you are right it is very much goooooood. I like the little size of the dry.

BUTT (I made a Frankie Funny) I thought your picture was of ... Re-cycled bunny foods... BaaaaWaaaah Jokes on me.
THOSE are delicious too, of course.

CONGRATULATIONS on the big win from your new furends. Duck Jerky is grrrreat. My wives make it fur me all the time... from their secret FAMILY recipe. hehehe
LOVE your hats!!!

Sue said...

That food looked great. We found some of the real thing today in the yard. Mom wasn't too pleased.

Have a happy Cinco De Mayo.

Happy Birthday Thunder!! Congratulations on winning the Amazon card!! That new food sounds yummy!!! Happy Chico De Mayo Day too! Lots of love, Holly and mom

Reilly / Bree said...

Happy Birthday Thunder - that does look like a great treat. With my tummy troubles I can only eat bison and venison - I wonder if rabbit would be okay for me too. I hope phantom gets to try some soon - he looks awfully sad in that last photo - even though he is wearing a funny hat.

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

All the Woos look wonderful in their sombreros!

Congratulations! Not every dog could talk their bean into feeding them bunny poo kibble! I hope you can share it with Phantom, soon! What dog could resist that?

BeadedTail said...

We're glad you had a wonderful birthday Thunder! The card is very cute and the foods look yummy! Congratulations on winning Max's prize too!

We're sending get well woos and purrs to Phantom too and hope he is feeling better!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Amber-Mae said...

OOOH I actually thought those were chocolate chips! They sure look like it. Rabbit dog food? That sounds delish. We had rabbit meat once. It was gooooooood! Happy Barkday Thunder & Happy Cinco De Mayo Day too!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Feliz Cinco de Mayo mi amigos y amiga! We are having chicken enchiladas tonight to hot sauce though! Hope you get a little more of that yummy looking rabbit (conejo) food.

Thank you for the very kind words welcoming my new brother. He is overwhelmed by all the wonderful friends he already has in the Blogworld...I keep telling him he hasn't seen anything yet!

White Dog Healing Energy still coming to Pahntom (and we have LOTS of power in the WDA)!

Happy Sing-Co Dee My-Oh, everybuddy! Maybe to celebrate, mom will give you a few extra of those rabbit pellets. Do doggies in Mexico eat rabbit pellets, too?

Speaking of rabbit pellets, mom was laying in the yard the other day and Brudder Ranger ate some of the pellets in our yard and then ran up and gave mom a big ol' kiss right on the mouth! Haha! It was sooooo funny. Even if she didn't seem to think so.

Wiggles & Wags,

Ginger Jasper said...

Huffle Mawson said...

I'm pretty sure I'd love rabbit too, if someone would give me some. Sorry we have been absent this week, mum has been really sick and even stayed home in bed for three days!

houndstooth said...

Thunder, you got a great haul! I am dying to try some rabbit food now myself. In fact, my mouth is watering!


bichonpawz said...

Happy Birthday Thunder!!! We would like to try some of that rabbit stuff...think we will have to look it up! Happy Cinco de Mayo too! Love your pic with the hats!!

Sam said...

I was thinking more along the lines of deer poop or something, but figured your mom wouldn't possibly let a wild animal on to your carpet.

Enjoy your new grub :)

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

Ole, you all. You look great in those hats! And duck jerky is our absolute favorite. It must take a lot of it to make a treat for you, being that you're all three fairly good sized doggies.

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...
