What’s WRONG With This Picture?

(Click on the picture to see better...)

Mmmm… Grammy says there is something WRONG with this picture!  We can’t figure out what she means.  After all, when the weather turns cold, they wouldn’t expect US to lay on the cold FLOOR would they?!?!   Surely she and Robert can come up with SOMETHING to sit on!

Coco is Having a Contest! By Dott

Coco and her adorable little Chihuahua sisters are having a Contest! We are a little late on posting about it, but you still have about a week to get an entry in, and the prize is a Picture book with all kinds of funny Pet pictures in it!  You can read about the contest HERE:

The name of the book is, “Awkward Family Pet Photos.”  It is what is called a “coffee table” book.  We don’t have a coffee table because Grammy very rarely drinks coffee, and she drinks her tea while at her desk! You can read Coco’s book review and learn more about the book at the blog about the contest. MMMmmm... I wonder if THIS is awkward enough?
It was awkward for ME ( I just KNEW there was a rabbit hiding under there somewhere), but none of my humans are in it, so I guess it wouldn't work...

Here are the rules:
1. PeeMail your Awkward family Pet Photo to Coco, no later than November 15th, 2011.
2. The Awkward Family Pet Photo must be of you (or those of your litter) and your Human or human relative.  
3. Photos of furkids other than yourself will not be entered into the contest as she has no way of checking that they are REALLY your relatives and that you have permission to post them.

Well, I guess I better go and dig through some of my old pictures and see if I can find anything that PEOPLE might find awkward.  I know they have taken plenty of me that I  think are pretty awkward!!!

Sharing a MOST WONDERFUL Story

Grammy just read a MOST WONDERFUL story, and she wanted us to share it with everyone.  It is a corgi Christmas Story called "The Watching: A Corgi Puppy's Christmas Surprise." It is a long post, but well worth the read (have tissues handy!!!).  From what we understand, it has been made into a book that can be bought from the Corgiaid site. 

We hope you all enjoy this.  It will touch your hearts, especially if you've a loved one who has taken the Rainbow Bridge...

We Got TREATS! by Gimli

We got a box in the mail a few days ago! It had some really GOOD smells coming from it!

We could hardly wait for Grammy to open it for us after we read that it was from our friend Palette and her Mom, Yassy, who makes some WONDERFUL dog treats! She also has other dog treats that she doesn’t make herself, but that Palette “taste tests,” and she sells them from her online Website, Yassy’s Gourmet Dog Kitchen.

Grammy had ordered a Moose Antler for us to chew on this time! We’ve LOVED the deer antlers, we’ve gotten from them before, and they last a LONG time, so Grammy loves them too!

When she found out they had Moose Antlers, she decided to get one to see if they last a long time too, and if we would like THEM. Well, DUH!

NOW, this week, we found out they also have Caribou Antlers, and Grammy says she wants to try to get some of them too, next time. We got a “Coupon code” (AUGLB) that is good for 10% off all the way up to Oct. 24th of this year. Yassy also sent a couple of extra treats like she usually puts in her orders. We got a Lamb Trachea AND some Buffalo Liver cookies!

They said we could share the code with our furiends and they also have a GDK’s circle of Furiends reward program on their store menu where you can even get more off! This is really great because Grammy also got us some “Surf and Turf Jerky” that Yassy makes from wild caught salmon and Buffalo meat. THAT was SO GOOD!!! Some of us were drooling before she was able to give each of us a piece!

We are sharing about our wonderful treats too, because we are joining Sugar the Golden Retriever’s Tasty Tuesday Blog Hop. Her Mom also makes some wonderful dog treats that we’ve gotten before and loved!  These were Apple Bites...

This Blog Hop goes through September 8th. There’s even a prize! You can find out more about it HERE

You should join in if you’ve got a post about some kind of doggie treat your Mom gets for you! Now, I’m going back to my moose antler!

Popping in to say HI!

My… How time flies!  

And NOT the kind of  “Time Flies” in one of Grammy’s designs, either! 

It’s been around four MONTHS since we last posted a blog.  I’ve been talking and talking to Grammy about it and she finally decided to let us post, especially with what happened this last week!  I’ll let Gimli tell you about it…

Gimli:  GUESS What! For a couple of days, we’d been hearing something crying under the bath tub! I’ve been whining and telling Grammy about it, but she said we had to wait a day or so to see if a Mama came back. She didn’t, so Grammy got Uncle Manuel to crawl under the house and find out what was crying. (This is a vid is of Mama Dott listening)

THIS is what Uncle Manuel found!

It was a LOT louder after it was rescued!!!  

Since I told Grammy about them and INSISTED she DO SOMETHING, I feel like they are MY kittens!  GrandPaw Robert says I'm a good Mommy, but Grammy says I'm a good DADDY! I think this guy, with his LOUD voice, AND I saved these babies lives!
Here are the four babies that Uncle Manuel pulled out. He took the black one and the Siamese home with him, and I have the two little tigers until they get old enough to find homes. Grammy thinks they are around 3 weeks old now.
Grammy didn't even know there were any cats around, though WE've thought we might have seen one out of the corner of our eye every once in a while, and we've tried to tell her about it/them...

We are keeping them in a large pet carrier so they will be safe from Auntie Sadie who thinks that kitties are some kind of squirrel or something.  

I stay close to it and keep an eye on them and warn her if she tries to get close!  My babies and I touch noses every once in a while through the door.  

Whenever they are out of the cage, I try to stay close to them and clean and protect them. 

Papa won’t let me up on his lap where Pippin is, though, when he holds my babies, because I growl at Pip.  I told him that he’d better NOT mess with them!  

Pippin:  I really don’t think I like the idea of baby kitties around here!  What if Papa decided he likes kitties MORE than ME?!

Just LOOK at the NERVE of that little thing… Here it is scratching Papa’s arm…

And HERE it is BITING him!    

 I’m a little worried…

Mercy:  I’m glad I overheard Grammy say the kitties can’t stay once they get old enough to find good homes because she is allergic to kitties.

BG:  Another reason we can’t keep them is that they can’t stay in the house and if they go outside, they get out of the yard and the coyotes get them, so Grammy doesn’t want to hand feed them and fall in love and then have them get eaten…

Dott: I am just glad we can get some sleep now that they aren’t SCREAMING anymore!

Quick Catchup… By Dott

We are so sorry we’ve been offline for so long. Grammy’s been having some major health issues, but is doing better now.

She was in the hospital for a while, but we tried to make sure Papa didn’t get to lonely.

They say it was something about a “Congested heart failed her,” but it really didn’t fail her cause she’s still here and around, though she DOES have a LONG oxygen tail that follows her everywhere. We keep tripping over it.

She says that at least they served her good food while she was there, 

but that she missed us big BUNCHES. I know WE missed HER bunches!

Neither BG nor Gimli have been in a fight (though they’ve grumbled a bit at each other) since she got home. I think they are afraid she left because of them and they don’t want her to leave again. They stay right near her as much of the time as they can.

Mama OC HATES to have Grammy out of her sight now, and barks and barks until she can see her again.

We are all so glad she is home!

Our grain hay is growing really BIG now since we have had a lot of rain and then some nice sunny days.

The horses are eating in areas that are fenced off from the growing hay, but I’ll bet they can hardly wait to get out into it!

The wildflowers have started to grow in our fields, so pretty soon the hillsides will be full of them, too!

Of course, that also means the weeds are growing, too! These behind BG are almost as tall as my Dad, Robert, and HE is over 6 feet tall!

He pulled a bunch of them up, while BG supervised.

Grammy had him put them on the table so she could pick Mallow “peas” from them to cook for dinner. She also used some of the smaller, tender green leaves and cooked them up with onions, bacon, and tomatoes (like she does with spinach) for dinner too.

WE just love to eat the peas fresh from the bush, now that she showed them to us!

We went to Mimi’s this weekend, after church, and Mick and Jenn, came by with Kody and Anna. It was a surprise, and Grammy was really happy to see them! Anna is growing so FAST!

Well, you are pretty much caught up for now. We sure have missed everyone, but we don’t want to bug Grammy to much as she is resting a lot right now. Have a good week!
