Rolling Along on Thankful Thursday

Phantom here to share some of my excitement today.  It doesn't take too much to get an old guy like me excited:)

Mom said we had to hurry up and get in the car and roll along so we could hurry up and roll along and get back home.  See if you can find any logic in that thought:)

Mom and I rolled along off to the V.E.T. to get my weekly Adequan injection - and of course, to get a few treats on the way out of the building.  As you can see, I am pretty happy about that part of my rolling along trip.

Now for the why we had to hurry up and go and then hurry up and get back home part.  Our neighborhood streets were scheduled to day for the ridiculous "chip and seal" paving they do to our roads.  Mom and Dad think it is a waste of money because it never lasts very long and leaves lots of pebbles on the roadways.  We had to hurry up and roll along and get home so we could park the sibemobile back in the garage before all the trucks and tar and pebbles and stuff got rolling along on our street.

I am the only one of us sibes who gets to go near the front door when it is open, something about young pups wanting to get at the squirrels and rabbits so fast that they might bolt right through the screen door.  Not me, here I am checking out the work.  The tar and pebbles have all been spread and it is time for the rollers to do their part.

Hey, Mom, I think those guys might need some supervision out there.  I think I would do a great job as a supervisor - how about rolling along over here and opening this screen door?

What do you mean?  I am not quite THAT trustworthy????  You think I might run off???

Now why would I ever want to do THAT???

You know I love my home and I am ever so thankful for my loving family:)  OK, I will just supervise from here as long as you give me some turkey liver treats.

Woos - Phantom

Note from Momster: Phantom's tail is "hanging" in there - the bitter orange seems to keep him from licking the area.  He only has to wear the inflatable ring overnight.  YAY!!!

Yea Phantom! Please don't lick the tail, we want it to heal and then you won't have to bother with that collar. Mom's dog Libby did jump thru a screen door twice, so now we're not allowed to watch either.

Madi and Mom said...

Phantom...your Woo eyes melt my itty bitty kitty heart....sighing in NC

Woo HOO that looks like a fun thing to watch. Never ever have wee seen or heard of such a process. I hope they did it right otherwise you'll be issuing Woo-demerits.
Lots of hugs handsome friend
Madi your bfff

you know one thing our Mom hates the smell of is tar.....erk - road works that close would have her leaving home in hurry and not coming back until it was all done. We are sure you did the most excellent job dogervising Mr Blue Eyes :)

Brian said...

I am happy to hear that you are leaving your tail alone Phantom! Hugs to you from all of us!

You had a big day car rides, vets, medicines!!! You must be exhausted with all that supervising too. That's not mom driving the roller machine is it?

Good to hear that the neck thingy isn't an all-the-time accessory.

We would love to get out our gate to look for cats. We do occasionally, but SHE yells 'do you want some cheese?' And we can't resist, we have to come back.

We think you're brave going to the VET's so often.

You are looking good Phantom. love seeing you look happy!

Oh, once in a blue moon they might put some of that crappy black crack filler in (yeah, like THAT works..) butts, that's about it! Our streets are embarrassing! Anyhu, I don't knows why your Moms wouldn't trust you out there helpin'...I'm sure they could use it
that is FABulous that you only need the ring at night! Much better than all the time fursure!
You keep sentry duty, and tell Lightnin' that I still wanna hunt some bunnies!! BOL

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Phantom- you had a big , big day,, and I know you would never escape,,
But make sure you don't go out and get any of that tar on your footies!
We are glad you only have the neck thing on at night too,,
I keep sending healing bubbles to you, so you can feel better.

CheerfulMonk said...

I'm so glad the bitter orange is working. Yay, Mom! Yay, Phantom!

Angel Prancer Pie said...

Our Mommy would have been sorely tempted to let you snoopervise. She's a sucker for that face of yours.

Our Mommy always says "hurry up and wait". We seem to do a lot of that on vet visits. MOL!


Jeanne Pursell said...

We think you look beautiful Phantom!! You were lucky that you got to go near the door. Mama's german shepherd went right through a glass door!! Yikes! Glad your tail is better!

Molly The Wally said...

Great news about your tail Phantom. Onwards and upwards. Wow we have just had our road re done this week. Lots of digging and trucks and noise and smell. We hope they do yours quickly. Have a fabulous Friday.
Best wishes Molly

It was great to see so many excellent photos of you, Phantom. You still have the best smile of anyone we know. Please continue to take good care of that tail.


Mitch and Molly said...

Love ya lots♥
Mitch and Molly

Marg said...

OH Phantom, this post made our Mom smile big time and all of us too. We love all your pictures today you handsome boy.Glad you get to look out the screen door. You do such a good job snoooopervising. You all have a wonderful Friday.

Sagira said...

Phantom, we are happy to hear that your weekly injections are making you feel better. Those roller things look cool! You make a great snoopervisor. :)

Anonymous said...

it's better to snoopervise that streetguys from a distance. I did that too (our street ist damaged again and it's not even one year old, it's a waste of money I agree) once one of that street guys even lost his pants while working with a jackhammer. what a moon, I nearly started to howl on it! I'm glad the bitter orange works and you are only at night the lord of the ring.

Casey said...

You sure do look happy about your trip! Aren't car rides the BEST?!

Anna the GSD said...

Car rides are pretty awesome, even if they are to the Dr. Vet. Glad to hear the tail is hanging in there! And I bet that roller car thingy did an extra good job with you snoopervising!

Anonymous said...

Way to go Phantom...keep that licky tongue away from your tail.

Angel Ginger Jasper said...

Phantom I do love your expression so. I agree with your mum and dad that when they do the chipping to the roads its a waste of time. They do that here and it lasts a day and causes chips to car paintwork and needs doing again very quickly. Glad you are doing ok though. Hugs to you Phantom x

Jenna,Mark Drady said...

BOL! Did you get those treats??

Melon said...

Ah, I'd missed this post - and sorry I did, as I am a big Phantom fan (Phan!). Glad to see it - just LOVE Phantom's expression in "what do you mean I am not quite that trustworthy??" and so glad about his tail and the ring. Fingers crossed the good news about that continues.

FiveSibesMom said...

Phantom that is great news about your tail! Woo! And you are such a good snoopervisor! Hope the road is all ready to go so you can get "rolling along" again! Hugs to you, beautiful boy. PS - did you get those turkey liver treats? I bet you did because your mom is awesome!

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

Turkey liver treats sound good and it was nice of you to supervise through the door.
