Merci Beaucoup on Monday

And the heat goes on and on and on . . .

So what's a pup to do? How about getting some important and overdo business taken care of? We have some very special blogging furiends to thank for showering us with goodness and goodies.

Honey the beautiful Great Dane and her human Hsin-Yi,who are now living in Australia, thought that Phantom might like to have some tasty fish biscuits to sprinkle on his food to entice him to eat.

You can see his snooter smelled that fishy smell right away - he thinks it smells pretty tasty.

But what's this? It really has a very distinctive smell - it is a package of Roo Chews. Honey thought it would be nice to send something for all of us to enjoy. Let us tell you these Roo Chews are really good - Mom says they are really stinky, but we say that is what makes them so yummy!!!

Thank you, Honey and Hsin-Yi - that was so very nice of you to think of me. Mom says that a number of you have been asking in the comments and in emails how I am doing. She always hesitates to say much about my health and my eating because every time she tells you I am doing well, it seems to jinx me. She says maybe you should just judge by how happy I am looking in my pics. Between all that metronidazole the vet gave me and my daily intake of that prescription diet gastrointestinal canned food (when I am willing to eat it), I have been eating better. Of course, we have also gotten by the worst of our bad storm season too. Mom says I could eat a whole lot more, but she will be happy with some.

The Five Sibes sponsored a Patriotic Pets Photo Contest as part of their 4th of July celebration, and we won the Creative Concept Award for our entry (for which we have to thank our good friend Ann of Zoolatry). You can see all the winners on the Five Sibes post HERE.

This was our entry:

And here we are admiring our pressies from the Five Sibes:

Phantom thought you might like a closeup.

Look who laid claim to the purple and blue tennis balls. BOTH of them.

This one tastes pretty good.

Maybe I should try this one too.

This one?

Or this one?

We made a little video for you to see what we sibes do with balls. Fetch is not in our vocabulary, but we do love to chew. And just for you, Mayor Frankie Furter, you can get a glimpse of a part of the Momster for your special event "Fur Furfolks Eyes Only". This might be the best we can do - she is very careful about allowing us to snag any good photos.

So did you see those long and skinny feet the Momster has? REALLY long and REALLY skinny!!!

Many thanks to Honey, Hsin-Yi, the Five Sibes, and their Mom for our wonderful gifts!!! Merci beaucoup!!! Now if only we could figure out how to get Mother Nature to send us some mercy and let up on this heat.

Oh, were you wondering where Thunder is today?

Just getting my handsomeness rest:)

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara


Princess Jasmine said...

Wow, you are such lucky woofies getting all those lovely presents. Yummy nom noms to eat and toys to play with, who could ask for anything more :)xx

scotsmad said...

Great pressies! We love roo chews and those fishy things look great, too.

We don't think Ciara wants anyone to mess with her balls.

Keep cool, guys.

XXXOOO daisy, Kendra & Bella

Berts Blog said...

wowy zowy you got a stash of good stuff there.

Can I come play at your house?


Sue said...

Tsar says "Right on, Sibes don't fetch" He does like to toss toys in the air, then pounce on them. Practicing his kill.

Mother Nature sent us some rain last night. It came down hard for about 15 minutes. Didn't cool it off, but it was a drink for the trees.

Stella said...

I was all excited to see a pic of you, Mrs Woo! But all I saw was your feets and painted toes. What do we have to do to see your smiling face (no baby pics, pls)?


kira said...

♥I am Holly♥ said...

What great presents for such beauties!!! I love the video so much!!! It is very hot here too but we did have a little storm. Enjoy the presents! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

Barbara said...

Stinky prezzies - we luv 'em!

That's the extent of ball playing in our house too!!

Winnie said...

Thunder! Are you winking at me? Cheeky!

Well done on all your presents and well-deserved prize. I don't want to jinx Phantom by saying I'll just send him lots of love and a big kiss.

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Mom says Ciara's tennis balls are furry nicely kholoured!

Nice khameo with your mom's paws - woo don't want to see my mom's ;-)

Nice stuffs!

PeeEssWoo: Off to press THAT button - it broken the 1000 mark and I khan't bear to watch Mom make THOSE faces...

Kari in WeHo said...

We think that was so nice of Honey's family!


Furkidsmom said...

rottrover said...

HEHEHE Ciara! Woo got the Momster to chase the ball! We do that all of the time!!

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

Your momster has feets! Now don't you all go calling her Momster Bigfoot. Just like we wouldn't want to be calling Frankie's mom Mom Bedhead.

Huffle Mawson said...

Such great presents!

Sagira said...

Congrats on your cool pressies!

That was so nice of them to send you something to try to help Phantom eat. I think we are nearing the end with our Samick though. :(

Stewey said...

Cool pressies - now it's time for some cool weather!

Mr. Pip said...

I don't get the whole fetch thing either. Maybe I am part Sibe? My mom is amazed at your clean carpet! How do you keep it so white? We don't have carpeting which is probably a good thing because between me and my sister something is always spilling on the floor.

Enjoy your treats, Phantom. I am sending you all my very best wishes and prayers!

Your best pal, Pip

Ms. ~K said...

Super pressies for special pups!

BeadedTail said...

Those are nice presents you got! We're glad that Phantom is doing better too! Ciara, you are so cute playing with those balls and playing smacky paws with your mom's feets!

Deborah said...

WOW, lots and lots of nice gifts! Glad to see everyone looks great!

sprinkles said...

I'm with Pip, how on earth do you keep that carpet so clean and beautiful looking? With 3 dogs and the grandkids, I just can't figure out what you're doing so different from me.

How sweet of Honey and Hsin-Yi to send Phantom those goodies. I follow Honey's blog too.

Congrats on the prizes. Shiver is absolutely obessessed with his tennis balls. Sometimes he'll fetch and when he gets tired, he'll sit there and chew on them.

My dad used to have a beagle who would throw her balls up into the air and catch them. She stopped doing it once she got older and got an injury to her back leg.

Maggie Mae said...

OoH what wunderful pressies you gots dere! :) We had a cool and rainy day here today, wish I could send you some of it. :(

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

Mango said...

Those long skinny feet do not appear to provide a stable base. Does your Momster tip over a lot?


Benny and Lily said...

you guys got some cool stuff. Bet those fishy sprinkles are good

Amber DaWeenie said...

houndstooth said...

What great presents! I sure hope we all get a break from the heat soon, too! We were down to only ninety degrees today! Woooo!


Au and Target said...

We know how you feel: Au is supermodel thin at the moment and we do everything to get him to eat up too. How kind of the Ozzy dogs to send you biscuits, Phantom! We wont' ask how you are but we're hoping you're eating like a big furry pig....

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

If the heat continues you might consider an indoor soccer game with that new ball. (or maybe just another nap). What great pressies and prizes...such thoughtful friends!

Holly and Khady said...

Wow, such cool prezzies and toys!

We are sure ready for some cooler weather too. The humidity is horrid and none of us are doing anything outside except our "business"! Definitely lounging in our nice cool house!

We like the way Ciara plays with the balls. Khady is like that too! Pawsonally, I'm doing a lot of what TD is!


Pippa said...

Ciara looks just like a puppy again with those balls :)

Love Thunder's one eye looking at you shot.


Maggie and Mitch said...
