Thanks to the Momster Thursday

Can you believe that 8 weeks ago today is the last day that all of us got to go for a walk! That day was when Mom fell and broke her arm. Well, today was a pretty nice day here, and she has been promising us a walk. She came through for us. Thanks, Mom. It was great!!!

We usually walk two at a time, but Mom says she has to be careful, so we each got to go one at a time with her. We wish we had a video to share, but once again, she says she needs to concentrate on what her feet are doing so we don't have a repeat accident. Hopefully it won't be too long before we can get back to our normal routine.

We did get some fun photos for you. We have all been wanting to have our picture taken with Santa. Luckily one of the houses up the street still has their Christmas decorations set up.

This is how it looks during the day. That big mess in the back is a humongous inflatable Santa. He probably stands about 12 feet tall when he is fully inflated.

Thunder seems pretty happy to share some time with Santa and the Penguin Elves.

Ciara tried to get this Elf to put a good word in with the big red jolly fellow for next year.

Phantom said he thought this was pretty boring, especially when he can see a cute little kitty up the street. Let's get this walk underway, Mom.

And last but never least, what did Lightning think of Santa? See that back paw firmly planted in the grass - "You really think I am going to go over there, Mom???"

Absolutely, pawsitively, without a doubt, NO WAY!!!

"You are such a wimp, Lightning. Look at me - this is just silly."

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning.

Pee Ess - please keep the Power of the Paw vibes coming. Our pal K and her human KB and another friend Maggie, the beautiful Airedale from Maggie and Mitch's blog, need all the help we can give them. And there are a lot of other furries out there who need our support too. We would love to mention all of them, but we worry we might forget someone.



Great photos! We're laffin' at Lightning but we would probably feel the same way!!

Wow,,you'll get your cardio in walking them one at a time but I understand. We don't want to bump that arm.
Hey,,those inflatables are scary!! Love the last picture.

Tucker The Crestie said...

Glad your mom is on the mend and walks have resumed! Be safe!

sprinkles said...

That was so nice of your neighbor to let you take pix in their yard.

I'm glad your mumster's arm is feeling well enough again that she can take you out for walks.

Ginger Jasper said...

Sue said...

Oh I know exactly what's going thru your head during walks now. I'm now terrified of falling. Before breaking my wrist I never gave it a thought. Now we have nightlites thru out the house. Rob says he needs sunglasses to sleep at night, but the thought of falling and breaking that wrist yet again is awful.

T. Maxx said...

Awesome pics!!
Mom absolutely loves the one with Phantom's big smile!!
Enjoy your day and take care of your momster!


Shawnee the Shepherd said...

8 weeks.. already?? I think we should all cross our paws fur Your MOM beclaws I know that she has had Just about ENOUGH of not bein able to do the stuffs she wants to do.
Lightning... I think you were soooooo wise to stay away from that thingy.. we all know it Must be a FAKE.. beclaws Santa Paws is back at the North Pole now. Good job. No Buddy is gonna be able to pull the furs over YOUR Eyes!!
Happy New Year 2012.. may it be the year that your mom NEVER EVER falls down!!

BeadedTail said...

We're crossing our paws for your friends.

Amber DaWeenie said...

Reilly / Denny Cowspotdogs said...

Love that last photo - it looks like Phantom is having a good old laugh !

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Howdy Everybuddy, we love all your photos and especially Lightning digging in his back legs hehehe. That reminded me of Rory while he was getting away from the Bath Monster hehehe.

We have all paws crossed here for all our friends in need. We have loved getting to know you all this year. Wishing you a happy, HEALTHY, contented New Year. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Ellen said...

That last photo was my favorite. I loved the good laugh over those holiday lawn ornaments...I'll miss the lights as they always look so pretty...but little by little all will be packed up by the weekend.

Christmas always goes so fast.

Glad you are able to go out walking with both arms...I broke my wrist a year ago August and I never want that to happen again.

Mango said...

Lightening is a total wimp! Wow! What would he have done if the inflated Santa had been up to snuff?

Nice to be out and about with mom again, eh?

We are thinking of Maggie and K. So sad for all of us.


Stewey said...

So glad to hear that your Mom is up to taking walks with you again.

The pics are just too cute!

Glad your arm is healing!!!

houndstooth said...

Phantom, I'd be laughing, too! Sometimes those puppies can be so silly. Although Kuster probably would have checked to see if he tastes like chicken. Hopefully Lightning will get brave enough to tell Santa what he wants next year!


Two French Bulldogs said...

GOOSE said...

BOL! Oh Phantom I want to hang with you.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We knew about K but not about Maggie. So many healthy problems and sadness.

We hope your mom's arm has been healing properly and all of you have been behaving around her so she doesn't have a setback. Like the Santa pix. :)

Berts Blog said...

So glad mom is feeling better. It was fun seeing you out and about. WE especially enjoyed the smiles.

haopee said...

That's Phantom at the bottom right? I'm still debating whether to pick Lightning's reaction of Phantom's smile as the best picture of the post.

Nice one guys!

Huggies and Cheese,


bichonpawz said...

Great smile at the end :-)

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I am so happys you all got to go for a walkie and that your human mom is recooping.
And all the photos with santa and his friends are awsome-even if they were scary looking!

ArtemisiaFSS said...

We has our purrs going for all your friends.

Phantom, Arty is headed over to cuddle with you. She says you looks like a very sweet doggie. Uh pal don't try to chase her she may be little but she is REALLY MEAN.(Fenris wooing)

Lightening, you are too funny being scared of Santa.

Ciara, you are looking gorgeous as always.

Happy New Year from all of us to all of you.

rumpydog said...

I'n glad Mom's arm is well enough to let you guys walk. I'd be wary of them elves though.... they can be pretty sneaky!

Bunk said...

Always best to concentrate on the feet! My humans never do, and since I'm a small pug it means that I'm always getting stepped on!
Happy New Years and have a fun and safe holiday!

The Thundering Herd said...

Way to go, Momster. Have you ever told her about our High Sierra Walk-a-Belts? That way she walk hands free. Sometimes. The hu-dad uses that free hand to use a hiking stick for extra balance.

Soggibottom said...

Great to know things are healing.
Have a great New Year Guys :-) XXX

Sagira said...

Your mom must be super woman to go on FOUR separate walks on the same day.

I LOVE the photo of Phantom laughing, so cute and so happy to see him still doing so well.

NanaNor's said...

Hi Woos, Loved seeing you all with the Christmas decorations! Hopefully your mom will be back to normal soon; just take it easy with her o.k.
Happy New Years, may you have a wonderful year romping and rolling with all your friends.
Hugs, Noreen & Reggie

Winnie said...

Nice to see you out and about.

Lots of special greyhound hugs to your brave mum.


Kari in Vegas said...

Just think of all the cardio

Stop on by for a visit

Bunk said...

You guys look so adorable with Santa. I wish I saw this earlier and told you to say hi to him from me. My humans have not been able to take me on long walks like they used to before either because once they moved to TN the male human was not working for a bit but now they both work for 12 hours a day and so it had become impossible to take me out. They have been talking about putting me in a doggy day care for the time they go to work. Right now I have a walker but they are thinking of putting me in day care for 2 days and the dog walker coming in for the rest of the three days so that all in all I get some more exercise and get to meet more dogs. Wish me luck!

Sapphire said...

Makes me smile all the time when i see you guys. Take care of Mom! Happy new year!
