What Happens Here On A Winter Stormy Day

We are/were under a winter storm warning. Lots of wind, rain turning to sleet and freezing rain...followed by frigid temps and snow. 'Ugh' all around, MOL/BOL!
Benji sticks his head out the doggy door to test the conditions and then hurries back inside...he does this multiple times until he can't wait any longer...and then he goes to do his business...no digging out there today! Petcretary says that is the silver lining in this mess - Hah!

Dalton darts out and does his stuff quickly too.

They both take a moment to bark at who knows what and scamper back in. The steps are slippery, so *she* has to sprinkle sand on them to give us a grip. *She* worries that one of us might slip and break a leg, esp Benji who has these long stilt-like legs...
Anyways it is a dark, dank and dreary day...January of course!

I, Pipo, just find a nice cozy and soft place to sleep the weather away...and dream of when the sun-puddles might return.

So here are some selfies of what we do when we are stuck inside with inclement outdoor conditions.
At least petcretary is off and doesn't have to venture out on the slippery roads. She is on call, but so far so good and no calls to come in, phew!

Sorry for the bad lighting in these pictures, we don't use flash, and the lighting was not the best...lamps are just not like sunshine!

I am being a good boy...just chewing up my toys, OK?!

Yup, I am...
I wish I could go outside though...its so icy and slippery out there, though...sheesh!
I'll just pass the dreary day in my 'nest'...

And try to sleep...why are you disturbing me, Petcretary??
I'm resting too...

And here comes...

That camera again...
OK, if I make a selfie then she'll stop, right?? I hope so, MOL!
A kind of no ears selfie...

Yup...no ears, BOL!

Look, A One Eared Selfie!

OK,. Here's an almost two eared selfie...
I am practicing...

My Head Tilt Skills:)
Here we are...

The Total Package of...

The Terrieristical Woofers!



We made a memento badge for dear Prancie from 15&Meowing...you can visit her page here.



We are trying to hop, but maybe its more like slipping and sliding...with The Kitties Blue who are the fine hosts of this weekly feature. Thanks so much, Kitties Blue!

A Look Back For Sunday Selfies

We are a wee bit in a tizzy around here on account of petcretary is working and other issues...so we thought it might be fun to look back a year, when Benji was new here, and staring his life in our furmily.
So here are some flashback selfies from January 2019.
She hadn't cleaned all the holiday things yet, and hasn't finished doing that this year either, MOL!

We did not have snow and there's none now either!

A very skinny Benji giving his new brofur a kiss:)





Then...

The snow came!

We made our last regular Birthday/Gotcha Day card, and BuddyBudd was the honored recipient. Remember we will still make these if you have not had one, and send us a clear picture at least 4 weeks in advance.

New Year's Eve: A Look At Our Christmas Cards

Before we get started we need to remind you of this PSA:
A Public Service Note:
As of Jan 1, 2020, petcretary will no longer be making all the Birthday and Gotcha Day cards. She will make Memorial Cards, and maybe a few others. She is spending way too much time on them, (Sometimes up to 8 hours on a card), even though she loves making them...Sorry to have to put an end to those...if you want one and have not had one for your special furend/furbaby...send her a clear image with an unobtrusive background at least 4 weeks ahead, and she will get one out to you. Just leave a comment, with contact info.


~~~~~~~~~
Yup, that will start tomorrow, remember I will still make a birthday or Gotcha day card, if you have not ever had one, but you must send a good clear image with an unobtrusive background., and at least 4 weeks in advance so I can get on it in time.
~~~~~~~~~

Well, here we are at the end of the year! Wow, it went by super fast, we think.
Lots of things happened, the good and the bad...but we want to look forward to 2020 with anticipation of the good things that may await us, and that should help carry us through any bad.

Petcretary won't be on much till after the first two days of the year are past, since she has to work Jan 1 &2 And the weekend too...sigh...so she will still have excuses, MOL/BOL!

We want to thank all who sent cards, both per snail-mail and by email. We love them all...of course us furry ones got by far the most cards:)

So here they are in no particular order, and we will not take the extra time to post links with them...we hope we have not left any ones card out...let us know if we did and we will try to insert it here to complete the showing.















































The last three cards up there is what petcretary sent out to her friends and relatives...she really liked that angel one:)
And here are some cute  cards to help us usher in the New Year:

Happy New Year to all our furends and their furmilies!!
