This is for the birds!!!




I spy with my blue and brown eyes something fun up there!




Wonder if it is for us? 



Maybe I can take a little nibble. 



Or maybe a bigger bite:)




I wouldn't do that, Lightning.  Don't look now but some Momster is watching.



SHE says it is just a photo prop - and not for destructive jaws of steel. 




So what do we do NOW, Ciara?



Just pose nicely, Lightning, and maybe we can at least get some tasty rewards for putting up with this tease of a Mom.

Woos - Ciara and Lightning

Note from the mean Momster: This was Thunder's favorite toy.  He would carry a bird around in his mouth all the while trying to woo a big song without dropping the bird. He never destroyed his birdies, but let me assure you that the birdies and their house will be in shreds in five minutes if I let these two have their way.

Y'all should always get bonus treats for being cute!

Madi and Mom said...

It is for sure a beautiful toy. Thunder was one of those pups who could carry a balloon w/o popping it. A gentle soul for sure.
Hugs Madi your bfff

Oh, what a darling little toy! The toys never got wrecked in our house until Elliot came along.

ps, I use Prismacolor Premier pencils for my colouring book but I have seen some great Youtube videos where they are using Derwent Inktense with a very small amount of water in a waterbrush (which I'm quite scared of doing in case the pages warp) but thinking of having a go with them as they look fantastic!

Ph Ciara and Lightning, that was Thunder's toy so don't destroy it. It brings back great memories of Thunder. Sounds like he was such a good dog. That is a good looking toy.

The Army of Four said...

We have some special toys like that around here, too. We even have a ducky that was great-brother Booter's!!!
Maggie must NEVER, ever see those ones!

You must respect the family heirloom. Maybe Mommy can get you one that you can rip apart

Hi - I just read your comment with the food question. Yes, you do need to reduce the dry food a bit when adding the Raw Boost Mixers. We tend to give Ruby just a topper (maybe 10 little mixers) added into her dry food. We also give them as treats and rewards. She likes them very much. They do come in little sample bags ($1.99 at Petsmart) if you want to try them and see if they like them.

We thought it was a hybrid tortoise at first. BOL! Bet you see Thunder carrying that every time you look at it!

BeadedTail said...

We love the birdies! Thunder was a sweetie for not destroying the birdies so now you can have it to remember him. Hugs to you.

Mitch and Molly said...

Moms always put away toys and stuffies that belonged to our angel brothers and sissies. They've very special and have to be treated with love and respect. You guys deserve lots of treats for being extra good!

Cupcake said...

I can just picture Thunder carrying around the little bird in his mouth!

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Since it is a Beloved Family TREASURE.... we will FURGIVE your Momster fur NOT allowing WOO TWO to have your Way with those Birdies... BUTT it is TOUGH.

Millie and Walter said...

We can understand why your mom doesn't want you two to play with that memento from Thunder. We do hope you got treats for your posing.

Ruby said...

OMD, I gots a toy(s) kinda like that! I had a squirrel log, a bee hive, a bunny den, a squirrel log and a squirrel log...I killed all the squeakies in the tree rats and the bunnies and the bees, butts I still loves them! I can totally see why these are super duper special, since Thunder loved them.
I also thinks that you guys should gets like 87 TJ PB treaties for posing with it without destroying it! ☺
Kisses,
Ruby ♥

I'm happy to see Thunder's favorite toy in today's post! I'm glad his two younger siblings haven't had their way with it. I hope that they got awesome treats for their restraint. :)

Wyatt said...

Yep, we understand that! Small stuffed things don't last long around here.
Just said RIP to a stuffed sheep and a possum today!

Hailey and Zaphod and their Lady said...

It is a great toy. It is funny how sometimes one of the dogs doesn't want a toy destroyed.

Idaho PugRanch said...

How sweet to picture Thunder with the birds in his mouth, yes that treasured toy must be kept safe
hugs
Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

Melon said...

Psst guys... I think you might be 'in the dog house' if you de-stuff that toy... And I would never be able to give that to my dog, watching the poor birdies get tortured! My bleeding-heart extends to stuffed animals too! Haha!

Dory and the Mama said...

Yep...Jakey would de-tweet these guys in no time!

Mark Muller said...

Oh I would love such a toy.... the berds can hide in that house but I would get them all :o)

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

Our first reaction was that you guys should be allowed to play with that toy, but we reconsidered after reading your Mom's explanation. We can understand that she would want to preserve TD's favourite toy. Please bear with her!

Woofs,
Tommy

Sue said...

I keep the favorite toy of each of mine too. I do have a couple of destroyers, but mostly they just play nicely with their toys.

C.L.W.STEP said...

I too have a squeaky toy that I'm not allowed to play (read: destroy) with. It looks like a beautiful cocker spaniel with really fluffy fur. I've been eyeing it for years, but it never comes down from its lofty perch!

Momo and Pinot said...

That is a very special one!

Ziggy Stardust said...

Mommy loves the Thunder Dunder story and the thought of him with the birdy in his mouth makes us very happy. Thank you for showing us that.


Ziggy Out!!

The Florida Furkids said...

That's a special toy so you should make sure you keep it and not shred it. We have special toys that belonged to our woofies too. They mean a lot to Mom.

Oh my, what a cool toy. Thunder Dundee was clearly very gentle with his fave toy. I am sure it would not last with Lightning...heh...heh

NanaNor's said...

So glad you got to see and smell the stuffie; I understand why Mom would put it away quickly though. When I garage sale in the spring, I always look for stuffed animals in good shape for Hunter. Stay warm and have a great weekend!
Wags,
Noreen and Hunter

Aww, that's so sweet. Funny how we hang onto things isn't it? I saw an odd stick in the driveway and wondered why it was there... and just as quickly remembered it was Mabel's last stick at the creek. And a photo of her playing with it popped up on my screen. I felt like she was telling me to hang onto her stick!
