A loss, a Tag and an award

Our friend, Buddy, passed this week. We will miss him a lot. Please stop by and give his mom and his sister Lily some hugs.

Kess picked us to show a photo.

This game has the following rules:
1) open the folder that has your pet pics in it
2) choose one you haven't posted before
3) tell its story
4) tag 5 friends (most of our friends have done this already!)

My mom has never posted this picture before. This shows you how she feeds us. She throws it out on the ground like we are CHICKENS! It's humiliating. But, being beagles who live for food--we don't refuse and we actually enjoy the hunt. No, she doesn't really feed us that way. Eh, she made me type that.

My mom also wants me to apologize to my chihuahua friends for calling the puppies biteyface rats. Well, I am sorry to have offended but I would call ANY puppy a biteyface rat so I am not being breedist. My mom really likes these little beasts (who might be going to new homes as soon as next week).

I got this award from Daisy the pink pitbull.-- created by her artsy friend The Purple Hatter. Thanks, Daisy! I grumble a lot about all these rescues but I'm really okay with it. Esp. since I was once one.

Meet my new cousin, SHILOH. She will be living with my mom's brother and his white German shepherd, Cesar. She's only 6 weeks old.

We had a quiet weekend. My mom almost helped transport a brittany boy but it was cancelled--he will go again another time. Instead she stayed home with us and played and worked on the Flying Monkeys. She really needs to think up a better title for that novel...


I hope you all have a good week!

Sorry to hear about your friend. Good work helping the rescues -- I was going to give this award to you if Daisy hadn't done it already, but it's her award so she gets firsties! ;-)

It's sad losing a friend.

You're right, we beagles don't mind how food is given to us!

Mango said...

You are giving momma ideas. Maybe making pee-wee eat like a chicken would be better than using that eat slow bowl.

I think I would starve to death before I found all my kibbles.

Slobbers,
Mango

hugs to everyone at home (:

No need to apologize! We knew what you meant. Our Aunt K has a JRT puppy who would fall into the biteyface rat category. She is full of puppy energy and likes to bite and tussle. We aren't for all that all the time. Besides, you're too darn cute to be mad at!

Hopefully the puppies will be out of your fur soon! Then things will return to normal.

Chihuahua kisses,
The Munchkins

Sorry about Buddy. Is your mom really writing about flying monkeys? Shiloh looks very sweet. I'm going to try feeding Arrow that way.

Hi there River!
Great job on the awards, Congratulations!
Mommy sometimes makes us jump for treats, is that a bit better than the "chicken-style" feeding?!
Shiloh seems like a very gentle pup.
Sorry to hear about your friend Buddy. =(

Hey River, thanks for stopping by. Interesting suggestion about keeping the goats inside at night, but I think that would be noisy and smelly. :) Mom has considered locking them in the barn at night, she's just afraid that they'll hurt each other if they feel confined and there's nowhere she can put the smaller ones separately.

Hi River.....I sure hope you guys had a nice long weekend....and I sure hope that's not how you get your food....I usually carry my food from my bowl and eat it on the floor-so it's kinda like it's been thrown on the floor. Mom sometimes steps in my little piles of food!!
