In Memory Of New Angels

 Recently we heard there have been new admissions to the heavenly realms at the Rainbow Bridge. This of course makes us feel sad, but the furry new angels will be strong and healthy there...and they can join others of their families already there ahead of them...and a reunion of sorts with friends as well.

Kirby of Yellow Mound Quilts

December!! Pre-Christmas Selfies

 Wow, its already the last month of this year...it has just flown by! Soon it will be Christmas and then the new year...We sure hope 2022 will be way nicer, kinder and more peaceable than 2021 has been.

Well, our tree is still standing; the tree dudes had trouble with their truck so they had to reschedule. So here is one last selfie of said tree:

Its kind of sad to take down this majestic tree, but it really is becoming dangerous. (All the stuff on the porch is the new shed...to be assembled...soon we hope!)
And the concrete work is done, so when the weather is cooperative, we can get our shed put up...hopefully we can get it done before the snow really flies here...but if not, well, there is always the spring, LOL!
There is grass seed under all the straw...
Here are some selfies...petcretary was experimenting with some of the settings on the new phone camera...
I know my ears are large, but...

I was really distracted, just like Dalton was...the dog next door was outside...and we had to make sure he was going to stay there!
Here is a flashback turned into a Christmas-y greeting.

Petcretary was not a firstie at Teddy's Teaser Class, but she was right with her guess!

We are in The Sunday Selfies Blog hop.Thanks Kitties Blue for being the hosts!!

POTP For A Friend


We were shocked to hear about a bad accident that happened to the Dad of Bowie and Brinley, and the Grandpa of Kinley, Travis and Angelique.

You can read all about it at Lone Star Cats, and at Kinley Westie. (Just click on the highlighted links.)

We are pawyering hard for Cameron and his whole family as they all feel the effects of the troubles he is having. Cameron, we send our love and POTP and get well wishes to you!

Sunday Selfies After Thanksgiving Time

 We had to wait a day to 'celebrate' as petcretary had to be at her work on the 25th...it was her turn to work a holiday, so we shared her with all her residents. She got a free ham dinner;  (But she did not bring us any doggy bags, sheesh!), no turkeys were harmed so they were very happy, LOL! They can all come out of hiding again...tee hee...we often see wild turkeys roaming in the field across the street and in our neighbor's yards. They really do make those gobbling sounds...

But:  What sounds do limping turkeys make?? Wobble Wobble!!  LOL, LOL!

We are also thankful that the really noisy clunking bobcat has left the premises...and the concrete guys have finished ruining our yard and they laid down a nice smooth new slab for the shed we will soon erect, and then they made our patio bigger, too. Its been raining and even snowing so we don't have any pics of the semi finished work...but here is Bobcat and some of the mess he made. Now you can also see where our new shed will go,  just a small one to hold the snowthrower and the lawnmower.

BobCat, The source of several days of mud and mess!

Right now the concrete is all poured, and we can even stand and run all over it! The mudpies have been smoothed out, new grass seed has been scattered over that, and its all covered with straw. Hopefully in the spring those seeds will make some nice soft grass for us to run on...and other stuff...BOL!

 Here we are in our Thanksgiving Selfies:

Yum, the drumstick is mine!

But??? Where is *my* drumstick??

Hmmm, no drumstick, to worry about here! Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful! We are thankful for our loving forever home, having been rescue pups with a bleak future....and we love our yummy noms, our big fenced yard, our peeps, and the good care we get from them and our vet too. Actually we love him!! And we love all of our many blogging friends!! You make blogging fun and we can share our good times and our times of need, too. Thank you!

Petcretary had fun this past week at Teddy's Teaser Class...she got in there rather late, (Oopsie), and thought she wasn't going to have time to sleuth the clues to make a guess but she did, and lo, she was the first right commenter! Hooray! This is what she was supposed to hunt the place of:

This is The Untertorbrücke (German: Lower Gate Bridge) is a stone arch bridge that spans the Aare at the easternmost point of the Enge peninsula in the city of Bern, Switzerland, connecting the Mattequartier in the Old City to the Schosshalde neighbourhood. Built in its current form in 1461–89, it is the oldest of Bern's Aare bridges, and was the city's only bridge up until the middle of the 19th century. It is a Swiss heritage site of national significance 

Petcretary got this badge for her efforts:)

Sadly this past week we had to say goodbye to one of our most loved fellow bloggers. In case you have not yet heard about this, We made a blog post here, but here is the memorial card we made in his honor.

We also had to say goodby to Sheeba from Life At Golden Pines

Concrete Work And Snow Raspberries!

 Petcretary worked this past Thursday, and when she got out, there was a nice thick layer of snow on her car. It took a bit to clean it off so she could drive away from there.Then she noticed that the car she had parked beside when she got there was still there and of course covered in snow, too...so she cleaned it up too, cause she knew it belonged to another tired staff member...that lady came out and was surprised that someone would do that for her...well, why not!? Team work isn't just for inside that place:)

The snow was still there  on Friday morning when we got up...phooey.We don't like that cold stuff at all. But at least it soon melted away.

But...we got locked up inside the house, and only were let out on our leashes. That was odd....well, then we saw why. We had a big invasion of our yard, and it was all ruined by a bobcat that had dug bigger holes than I, Benji ever could! There was a whole gang of dudes moving that dirt around, and putting wooden boards around the holes, sheesh, were they going to make walls in them? Later after supper most off the invaders were gone, but the bobcat was still there. At least it did not hiss at us, or try to whap us, like Pipo used to do...BOL! But still we were on those very restrictive leashes and not allowed to run free...not till Saturday...so we had our muddy yard to ourselves again...though now there is a huge extension of our sidewalk of an 10x8 foot concrete slab. Hmmm, and it is surrounded by tons of dirt, and more holes, those are filled with wires, Us pups have no idea why they need to put a piece of fencing flat into a hole, and then shore up the sides of said holes with wood and 2 foot long spikes. (The 'fencing' is metal reinforcement...) Our nice piece of grass where we would run out to in a hurry...to do doggy business...is also nothing but a big muddy hole with more fence in it. Sheesh, pawppy what is going on?? And what on earth is on our front porch now...we saw petcretary move stuff (The shed pieces), out of a huge box and take it over there...it doesn't smell very interesting though, so we have ignored it, BOL!

Apparently our peeps want to extend the patio and they needed a slab to put up a shed, the parts of which are now waiting for the concrete to harden enough to support it. And those big holes will soon become the new patio extension, because the invaders did not get finished...they are coming back tomorrow, (Monday), if the weather allows it...Oh Phooey, that means another day or two of confinement and leash only trips for doggy business...Petcretary says, just deal with it! We say Pffffbbbbttthhhh and gave her some raspberries! BOL!

A BIG raspberry! The sunshine we had sure was bright, and it didn't help with the picture either...

 I gave one of those raspberries, too, but at least I am a bit more polite about it, BOL!

This past Tuesday, petcretary was a 'firstie', (Along with one other 'student' who was quick),  at Teddy's Tuesday Teaser Class, and another 'student' had some clues to offer, so she capitalized on those and found the answer quickly enough to be the first right guesser as well! Whoot, a double win!

This is the badge she got for being a 'firstie' at class...

This was the place she had to guess...its Sarek National Park in Lapland, Sweden.

Here is her badge for the double win...looks like us when we get all excited, BOL!!

We had to say our sad goodbyes to a very well known pup this past week, he even was the mayor of Blogville at one time...(Our previous post was in his honor.)
