Picnic in the Bark Bug Fun

We had a lot of fun with this event for the Picnic in the Bark. It is the Bug House at The Daily Oskar sponsored by Oskar, the "excessively handsome" miniature schnauzer. Be sure to stop by Oskar's place to see all the bug fun.

The Momster up to more tricks. What have we here, Ciara?

Ciara had to get up to take a good sniff.

I think we are all safe - these bugs won't hurt us. And Huffle's Mom, there are NO SPIDERS!

We both got a big chuckle out of this one.

You probably remember this surprise Mom pulled on Thunder from

Nothing bothers Thunder - he was quite cool with all these squirmy slithering critters.

Getting a good sniff just to be sure.

Making sure there isn't a real one slipped in here.

All is well. I, TD the Fearless, just LOVE this stuff.

Here is what I really love to do with snakes.

Phantom wants to be sure you see what he thinks (click to bigify) about this whole Bug House thing. Mom made him pose with the bugs.

OK, Mom, here is one good one just for you.

And here is your "awwwwww" moment:)

Hope you all are enjoying all the fun at the First Annual Picnic in the Bark.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Sue said...

You guys sure have a lot of crawly things around. We just have our big green caterpillar and he's waiting for surgery. Talk about slow health care, some of our toys have been waiting months for surgery. We're contacting our congressperson about this. Oh wait, Mom says that will just slow things down more.

Anyway, we love the pictures of you all laughing at the silliness. Have fun.
