What FUN!!!

Let the big luau begin!!!!

Don't forget to stop by the Fiesty Three's blog and join in the celebration - all weekend.

Photo kindness of Asta and her sweet loving Mommi.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Pee Ess - while we are in Honorooroo, our poor humans are home suffering from a water-boil order in addition to the entire roof nightmare. The entire Johnson County area has been under a boil water advisory since early Friday morning, and it is likely to last at least until late Saturday afternoon, if not longer. A raccoon ate some wire that caused a massive drop in water pressure and then broke a hole in a 54 inch water main. What a mess - 400,000 peeps unable to use their water unless it is boiled first. Darn raccoon.

That is one mighty raccoon!! So sorry to hear about your water problem, on top of the roof issues you have been happy.

Hope you are able to make the best of it and have a good weekend anyways and shake your booty at the Honorooroo!!

Cheyenne -Millie said...

Wow! That raccoon must have strange tastes in food!! And he must have had a tummy ache afterwards!

We hope that you don't haves to boil water long!

Schnauzer Days said...

Ooooh no, what a naughty racoon, hope your peeps manage to sort things out for when you get back. We have a confession to make, we stowed away in your luggage to get a lift on Asta's plane to Honorooroo, we're only little so we fitted easily. Anyway we've owned up to Asta, who we didn't know before so hope you will still be our friends, we only ate a couple of your treats as we missed the breakfast served to you all on the plane ;-) Dex & Lou xxx

OH NO!!! I can't believe a raccoon could do so much damage! That's terrible! I hope life gets back to normal soon!

Tell Phantom I saved him a spot under my beach umbrella. We don't want to get over-heated!

Your pal, Pip

SissySees said...

Bad, bad raccoon. We had a close encounter with one that almost had to be rabid - VERY thin, wobbling around in plain sight in town - last night. Luckily, the girls were safely at home...

Pack your bags and head for the islands. Leave the nasty water behind.

How's the roof situation?

Hi Everyone,
This luau is a lot of fun!

Tessa the Maltese said...

Hey Op Pack sure are sorry that your folks are having such a hard time with those direspecting your home roofers! Then the added trouble of boiling water all because of a pack of squirrels posing as a HUGE racoon.

I sure am glad that you all are having fun in HonoRooRoo. Sure looks great!

Mom says maybe next year I can go, she says I am too young. Oh well maybe next year right?

Happy 4th of July!

woos, Tessa

houndstooth said...

That is one pesky raccoon! More proof that our humans should let us run the little bandits off when we see them lurking about.

I love that group shot! Asta's mom is pretty talented. Mom went to Party City today and they had two paper parasols, a green one and a blue one. We are now owners of the green one. We were hoping to find a pink one, but can't be too picky! Big thanks to your mom for the tip about where to find it!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Happy July 4th to all of you! We are so sorry about the water problem on top of the roof going on too. Boiling water is not fun or easy to do all day long. We hope all is fixed really soon for all of you. Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

Thor said...

Looks like you're having a blast! Great picture!

Thor and Jack

Lorenza said...

That raccoon sure made a mess!
I hope everything will be normal soon!
See you at the party!
Kisses and hugs

Au and Target said...

That raccoon must be one mighty biter. We guess it's pretty wet with all that water all over the place. Are you three woos having mud baths? In a way we hope yes because it's fun - but please not on your lawn, ok? We like your garden all green and pretty!

Huffle Mawson said...

I think raccoons are just as evil as squirrels.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Hi my friends,, I saw you at the Luau Party,., its so fun!

Suka said...

That is a pawsome photo! Love it! Looks like all are having a blast!

Sorry to read of your water-boil issue. What a pain for your peeps! Hope they fix it soon. Poor raccoons, they always get the bad rap!

Keep rockin' at the luau! When you go surfing bring a few cats along in case a hungry shark swims by. BOL!


bichonpawz said...

Yikes! Hope things get back to normal soon! Xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

Amber-Mae said...

I can't believe a raccoon could cause that massive damage! DARN you raccoon!!! You need to be barbecued.

Just Ramblin' said...

Wow! One racoon can really bring the town to a halt. Not cool at all. : (

Max the Quilt Cat said...

That looks like a great celebration. I gotta get one of those shirts...

pawhugs, Max

FiveSibesMom said...

Looks like a fab party! Woos, you guys look great in your luau outfits! Have fun!!!

FiveSibesMom said...

PS-sorry about the water boil order. :-(

sagechronicles said...

OMD--when it rains it pours, so to speak. That was some pesky raccoon! Hope you have a nice 4th in spite of it all!

Mack said...

That raccoon needs some serious time-out!
THANK YOU so much guys for the kind words and advice you gave my mom. You are wonderful woowoo dogs!
Luv ya,

Julia Williams said...

Bad, bad raccoon!!! That must be a real pain to boil your water. I love the photo, and I see that kittehs are allowed to celebrate along with the doggies, but are vastly outnumbered. MOL.

Tucker The Crestie said...

Wow, you guy are looking so festive today!

Cyber-sibes said...

Great luau! Now that's the way to celebrate while the peeps are home dealing with the "raccoon-induced disaster". Hope the city gets the water back up & running soon - what a fiasco!
