Tocktober Sort Of Selfies

What a strange week, at least as far as the weather and its elements go. We had sunshine, thick clouds, nice balmy days, and then a heavy frost of 25F; thunderstorms, high winds, and sleet, and even hail. The hail happened during the MSU/UofM Football game, so here, being Wolverine fans, we said oh look hail! 'Hail to the victors!'...but the game had to be halted for way over an hour, due to the bad lightening. (And our team did win...Go Blue!)
So our patio planters and anything in the garden is now a frozen mushy mess. All the leaves from the black walnut tree fell off all at once onto the lawn, it looked like a green and brown blanket...and the catalpa tree in the back did the same. The Catalpa leaves looked like greenish leaf pancakes! Today there were lots of branches down, too from the high winds. Before the frost petcretary had to fix a planter that the wind had grabbed and knocked down. And petcretary was amazed because that has never happened before. Pawppy had to help to get it upright, its that heavy. So we can only barely imagine the wind's destructive forces from that nasty and awful Hurricane Micheal. Our thoughts and pawyers are with those affected.
Petcretary wanted to clean  up the yard and patio garden today, but the weather did not allow it...so well, that job will wait as it will not run away, MOL!
So instead of cleaning up the yard and garden, petcretary went to the pet store to buy some Dalton noms...and he went along! And well, there was another adoption event going on there. Dalton whined and pulled to see the furry wee ones...there were three puppies, and more than a few kitties, including a meezer mix. Petcretary chatted with the peeps for a bit, then pulled away to resist the strong urge to call pawppy to see if we could have another furry rescued one...but for us, this is not a good time for all kinds of reasons. So we will just stay with wee Dalton and good old Pipo:)
Later, both unfurbros came to watch the football game and enjoy a good meal afterwards. Petcretary fixed salmon, with roasted veggies, a salad and some homemade salsa. That salsa woke up the taste buds, MOL/BOL! She used tomatoes and peppers that she had harvested from the garden just before the frost, phew! Then they had berries with a Greek yogurt sauce for afterwards...since we don't eat heavy or traditional desserts like pie or cake anymore...Yummy! Dalton and Pipo both came to check out what those yummy aromas were...
So now we had to dig in the files, and we found some tocks to show you:
Sideways Tocks

*The* Tocks

Hey, I feel someone is watching my Tocks...

Who said you could peek at my Tocks?

Well, since I have the attention span of a flea, I will just forget about peeps looking at my tocks, because digging is way more fun!

Sideways Tocks, again...

That's all you're going to see of *my* Tocks!!
My Tocks are sort of in hiding...

But now they can better be noted...

Half of my Tocks, MOL!

A better view of the half Tocks...

OOOOOH! Tocks!

I feel too many eyes upon my Tocks!
So I will just swagger off...and therefore these Tocks are blurry, MOL!


 We made a card for Einstein and Timmy.

And Dakota had a Gotcha Day, too! And Caren, his Mom, had her own special day. Click on this caption to visit/send your greetings there:)

Rainy Day Selfies: When The Sun Came Out Of Hiding

When petcretary told us, that once again it was time for her to help us make selfies, well it was rainy and wet outside...not to mention chilly. So we made them indoors..and while Dalton was languishing in a doggy nest, I, Pipo was at the window watching the outdoor life...and chattering away, then I napped. And behold the sun came out for a short while to backlight my selfies. Wow...and when petcretary went out the rain wet her head, MOL! And today when she had to be at her work, well, it was bright and sunny. Go figure.
I was minding my ow business and snoopervising the outdoor life...
When petcretary said it was time to get ready for selfie taking...so I started with this grooming maneuver...
And attended to the state of my footsies
Well, this one did not turn out that well...

Smirk, thay is what you get petcretary for interrupting my window time...

I feel rather sleepy now...

But *she* still wants a good selfie she said...

Well, tis is my sprt of winking selfie, MOL!
And this is my whole self-selfie! And wow, the sun came out!

Sunbeams are so relaxing, and make me want to take another nap.
Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Dalton in the doggy nest by petcretary's desk

He was sad that the rains were coming down...

And he didn't want to go outside to take selfies in the rain...

Deary days are good for catching up on relaxing:)

So this is Dalton's rainy day relaxing selfie.

Once again the card making factory was busy:

Rain Rain Go Away Selfie Sunday

Yup, its wet & rainy. Off & on the whole past week. Which means even though the sun showed up a wee bit, mostly it was when petcretary wasn't able to help us take our picture. Sheesh. She runs up more excuses...MOL!
Anypaws, it did rain most of yesterday and this morning it was misty and cloudy. Not good for selfies.
In spite of the wet days, the Wolverines, who we root for at this den, well they dodged the rain and thunderstorms and after a delayed start, they Won!!  (Sorry to you Terrapin Fans...) Go Blue!

I, Pipo am pawing the window cause there are furred and feathered visitors to the seeds and suet and peanuts...and mealworms, Yuck! Not the visitors, the mealworms, MOL!
I, Dalton am hiding in my doggy cave, cause pawppy is nearby and for some reason I am still very wary of him...even though he is the one who delivers my noms. My pawrents wonder if I evfur will trust pawppy...of course sometimes petcretary will sit on the floor and I love that...but pawppy nevfur sits on the floor...well, petcretary says he can't. (He has one of those bionic hip joints...I wonder who got to gnaw on the one they took out?) So I do sometimes give him a sniff when I walk past him in his chair at the table, and I might even let him scritch my chin:) But cuddles? Not ready for that! Yet...but...when unfurbro-the-elder came over today, I went right up to him...before I ran off to watch from the distance for safety...

So we are going to show you some other more close up selfies we made when we were doing that red stuff for Madi...is this a flashback??
We guess petcretary helped us make a ton, BOL/MOL!
She still has some guest selfies to show you from her time at those pretty gardens last August, but she will save those for some other time.

Petcretary says she should have saved these selfies till Christmas, MOL!
Of course no week hardly goes by that we do not help petcretary to make cards for others. No exception this week...
MissBoo

Speedy, he celebrated Number Seven!

Sunday Selfies Blog Hop...Sort Of Still Red...

We are once again in the Sunday Selfies Blog hop. Since we made some pictures to put in the bigger one we made to honor dear Angel Madi, we thought you might want to see the original ones before they were inserted in her picture.


These 'seflies' of Pipo & Dalton are our Selfies for the weekly blog hop... 
Here are the unedited images before petcretary 'enhanced' them...MOL/BOL!

In case you missed it, here is the 'Red Box Day For Madi' graphic we made, and here is the post we put it in, also a blog hop.

Earlier this week,  dear Rusty from Jan's Funny Farm, became an angel. He was involved from blogging for many years, way before we even knew about blogging...he will be sorely missed,  may his memories be held deep in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.

Once again we truly want to let you all know you are not forgotten, nor thoughtlessly thrown to the side...we love you all, but petcretary is swamped with all the picture work she does, which 'bites' into the time she has to help us visit you all. And of course she has her job at the nursing home  and other chores here at the den...
She thinks she may just start somewhere and not read all the previous ones, as right now her inbox is recording over 1000 notices...Yikes!
If you would like a picture/card made, just send her a clear image of your furry one and the occasion and she will try to get one made. Try to allow plenty of time, say 2 - 3 weeks ahead...
