Friday Funnies/Saturday Sillies

Late posting today - hence the title.

Ciara here. Here I am practicing my sleeping pose.

I have been trying to teach the little bipeds the best way to get comfy in order to fall soundly asleep.

I think I have done a pretty good job with the boy twin J. What do you think? Scroll down for a look.

Isn't that the cutest thing? He had just gotten home after the airplane ride home after a week at the beach in Florida. Guess he was pretty tired. Maybe I need to work on that hanging the head down part.

Thunder here now, my sister has the silliest notions sometimes. Mom said I could post this photo of me so you could see how nice I look after all that brushing she did. Remember all that fur in my Fur-Days with Thunder post HERE?

Well, I got to thinking today about all that fur. Wyatt was telling us here about how he has succeeded in growing a tennis ball plant. And Frankie Furter has a Milkbone Tree. I know I tried unsuccessfully to grow a stuffie tree a few years ago - you can read about it HERE. I haven't given up hope about it yet, but I am working on a new idea. I am planning to do something really special with all that fur. Many of you have given me lots of ideas about making a hat for Mom, or a Christmas ornament, or using it to stuff a quilt. Those are all great ideas, and I might try them. But I am working on another project - stay tuned and I will tell you more in a while.

Woos, Thunder and Ciara

Great training, Ciara! You sleep like my brother, YoYoMa!

Thunder, you look so much sleeker since the comb-out! We cannot wait to see what you come up with for all that floof. Momma had an ornament stuffed with my fur and dad's mom used to spin her neighbor's great Pyr fur (grandma was a fiber artist)!

Oskar said...

Ciara, you did a great job at training the boy. Thunder, I can't wait to hear what you have up your paw.

Woof! Woof! Golden LAUGHS!!! Love it Ciara. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Ciara's young grasshopper was khwite a good pupil!

As fur Thunder's special furry exciting!

I khan't wait to see what woo do with all your furs!


Ms. ~K said...

The little peep learns quickly! Too cute!

Can't wait to see the idea...I saw a great idea about three women who spin the fur, and then make it into all kinds of great things, including small stuffed animals...I want 3 Labs...Heavens knows, I've got the fun to spare!
May I send Zack over for some brushing now? He is really my worse shedder...

♥I am Holly♥ said...

What cute photos!!! Great training Ciara!! Can't wait to see what the idea is....I have a feeling it will be great!!! Have a wonderful weekend! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Wow, what a Blogville project that could be: collect all the excess furs and do something useful with it. Jed may not be quite in your class, but he's a pretty heavy shedder. Bet Blogville could generate enough floof to blanket a small country. Maybe even a big one. Jed prefers our AC vents in the floor, where he can lie directly on them. Your wall mounted versions are bound to be more sanitary.

Amber DaWeenie said...

Ciara, you're a really good teacher.

You look good, TH, wit all dat missin' fur. Did you lose weight?

Haves a nice weekend!

BeadedTail said...

Ciara, you sure taught that bean the Sibe way to sleep! What a cute photo!

Thunder, we're curious as to what you are up to with your fur! You do look very soft and very handsome!

Mr. Pip said...

Hey Ciara - when you are finished teaching your bipeds about the best sleeping positions, maybe you could pop over here and give my sister some lessons. She has decided she doesn't like sleeping anymore (no more naps, wanting to stay up later and later, etc.).

Your pal, Pip

Tessa the Maltese said...

Hi Ciara I thinks you did a pawsome job teachin the little bipeds how to sleep. But little J. does have a great head hangin routine goin for him.

Hi Thunder I looks forward to seein what your Mom does with all that fur. By the way you look very sleek after that heavy duty brushin.

Have a Great Weekend.

Woos, Tessa

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Your such a good instuctor,, and I agree with you that it is important to get very comfortable.
You have it down exactly how it should be.
The little biped is trying to be just like you!

I think Thunders fur would be beautiful in a scarf. My mommy has one from a samoyed dog,, its beautious

scotsmad said...

Maybe that bi-ped is part scottie, 'cause we sleep like that!

We think Ciara is just trying to get some cool air on her tummy. And Thunder you do look very handsome.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

STELLA from Down Under said...

Ciara, great training of your little boy J. Looks like a good way to keep cool too. No worries, and love, Stella

Maggie and Mitch said...

You are an excellent teacher, Ciara! J learned his lesson well!
We can't wait to find out how you'll best use your furs, Thunder!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Gus said...

the muzzer has a friend who spins the fur from her Corgi's (2,3,4....?) and then knits with it. She has some neat sweaters. We are sure your project will be wonderful, and we know your Mom will love it.


Reilly / Bree said...

You gotta train them while they are young and it looks like you did a great job Ciara. And Thunder - you are looking so handsome!!! Can't wait to see what you are planning

Bobby said...

Ciara you sure showed the little two leg how to sleep.
We can not wait, what is it.

Au and Target said...

You have trained him well, oh Ciara! MOL, we gave you an award!

Sue said...

Morgan sleeps with her head hanging down like that. It seems to help her mentals.

Our Mom is very interested in your mystery project. We have lots of extra hairs.

Mrs. JP said...

It always amazes me how dogs and children can sleep so soundly and relaxed. I can't wait to see those other links...have a great weekend.

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

Ciara, I thoroughly approve of your sleeping pose!

TD - Man you look GOOD!!!!!!


Beans4Biscuits said...

You has perfected the sleeping pose!!! And you must be a fabulous trainer 'cause the boy twin J looks like he has mastered it.

We are going to try it now ourselves!

Ciara, soon that will become an Olympic sport, with humans competing to see who can come up with the best form, but they'll never top us dogs!

Thunder, you look great after all that brushing! I am quite curious to see what you come up with to use all your floof for. Is it toupees for poor, bald-butted Greyhounds?


Bailey Be Good! said...

Teehee!! Love the little boy asleep on the chair. I hope he didn't fall off!

Woofs & hugs <3,

~Bailey (Yep, I'm a girl!)

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

My cousin makes yarn out of dog hair. Here's a blurb from her website: Dog hair fiber is sometimes called 'chiengora'. (from the French 'chien' meaning dog, and 'gora' meaning extremely-warm-hair. Or something like that.) Dog hair yarn does not have a dog odor, it doesn't shed*, and it is very warm. It's great for making hats, mittens, and scarves, or adding a unique accent to any handmade project.
*OK, it sheds like a cheap angora sweater a little.

She spins it! Thought you'd like to hear this!!
