Jus checkin' in...

Hello, evfurryone!!! I know it's been a furry long time since I last posted, almost a whole year! It's all mom's fault, of course. But we have been thinking about our blog furiends a lot lately. We've been saddened to learn of hardships and tragedies. Know that mom and I love you all furry much!

Dis is my favorite place to hang out most days. Years of laying on top of the sofa have squished the cushion down into a nice little nest fur me. Mom has long since given up trying to keep me off... I'm so determined, and it makes me so happy to sit up there and look out the window and guard our house. It's a furry important job!

In the winter, I get lots of blankets to keep me nice and warm. I like to burrow under them. I don't know why mom calls me a hamster when I do that..? She has no idea what I'd do to a hamster if I saw one!!!

Yesterday was furry nice and warm - 65 degrees here in Iowa! We went to one of our favorite places to go hiking!!

The pretties...




I was furry happy to go hiking wiff mom. I got to smell all kinds of wonderful things, including coyote poo. It was so exotic!!

Well, we just wanted to check in and say HELOO!! and let you know that we're doing fine. I doubt we'll be blogging here regularly, but we'll try not to go a whole year next time.

If anyone's so inclined, you can friend mom on facebook. It's a lot easier for her to keep up with stuff on facebook than on the blogs.

Happy Trails!!!

Hellooooo out there......

Well pups, kittehs, and humans, here it is almost Feb of 2011 and I'm not sure how I lost control of dis blog, but it happened somewhere in the last few months. It's all moms fault, of course. Since she switched from acrylic to oil paint a few months ago, she's very focused on her art.

Well, that means lots more studio time as well as new art groups and weekly goings on. There are only so many hours in a day. So now mom is in a conundrum with what to do with my blog.

We are so sorry we haven't been keeping up wiff our friends blogs. We hope you are all doing well. We think of you guys often, and will try to stop by now and then to see what you're up to. I will try not to let months go by without checking in again.

I've been fine. Doing lots of THIS lately:

Yes, that's me hanging out in my Marfa bed watching mom paint. I look bored, BOL! I've also been having fun destuffing toys and playing tug, and of course, lots of cuddle time.

Boomer is fine. As fine as an almost 18 year old grouchy kitteh can be. She still bops me on the head when she gets the chance.

Mom is on facebook if anyone wants to send her a friend request. It's easier for her to keep up with things that way.

Belated Happy New Year, and I might as well wish everyone Happy Valentines Day in case I don't get back here in time, BOL! Especially to Miss Puddles, and my best kitteh Madi, and my man crush Tank, who is almost as suave as me.

Lots of love to evfurryone!

I got to meet #1!!!!

Hi evfurrybody! I had something FURRY exciting happen to me last week - I got to meet #1 from The Poupounette blog! She had commissioned two paintings from my mom, and came to Iowa for a big horse show last week, so we got to meet her!!

Mom posted about the paintings on her blog today if you want to see better photos of them, but since this is MY blog, I'm just going to tell you about what the meeting was like fur ME!

#1 (and her friend) were both furry nice, and petted me and said all kinds of nice things to me. Her friend was French, so #1 would speak French to her, and it sounded like music to my extremely cute and suave ears! I enjoyed how it sounded, especially when they were talking about my toenails being different colors, and about my dignified greying muzzle. And about how handsome I was, we can't furget that, BOL!

I don't look especially happy in dis second photo, but that was only because the sun was in my eyes.

It was so much fun to meet #1, and for all you who are wondering, she is just as nice in person as she is on the blog.

I'm sorry it's been so long since I've blogged. Mom has a lot of irons in the fire these days, and blogging time has been put on the back burner. I promise to check in whenever there is news, and more often when I'm able. Know that I love all my blogging friends, and think of you often and hope you are all well.

Luv and kisses to you all,

Visitors are still here!

Hi evfurryone! Well, my visitors are still here. Thank you guys fur all the kind words about grandma and grandpa. They are fine, although grandma did have to stay overnight in the hospital. Their trailer was totaled, I guess those things aren't meant to slide down the road on their sides, but they got to buy a new one and are loading it up before they go back on the road. So we still has the pets fur another day or so.

As you can see, I am furry well, and even more handsome. Hey Puddles, check out my muskles!

Oy is still furry cute, according to mom. She says he must be cute according to me too, because I have started humping him. Jeez, mom!! That's only to put the little twerp in his place and show him he's living in Cloud's World!

Boomer is still crazy, BOL. She is a ball of fire!

Here is a picture of her peeing, to get back at her fur all the times she's knocked me over and hit me in the eyes wiff her waggy tail, BOL!:

But we are getting along better. Here we are conspiring amongst the Hostas...

Our Boomer is doing dis right now. She's not crazy about the visitors and wants to hang out on mom's desk where they can't reach her. Miss Kitty is still living downstairs. Boomer HATES other cats, and is stressed and grouchy enough already, so mom thought it was best to keep her and Miss Kitty separate while she is here.

I wonder if I'll miss them when they're gone??

Well, that's all fur now.

I has company!

Hi evfurryone, I has company! Grandma and Grandpa and their pets were in a bad accident while traveling in their RV. Luckily, no one was hurt, but they asked if mom and dad could come pick up the pets and keep them while they sort through the wreckage, deal wiff insurance, and buy a new RV. (They are far from home, they live 8 hours away from us. But the accident was an hour away from our house.) They're not sure how long it will take, so the pets may be here several days or a week.

Dis is Oy. He is a 7 year old long hair dachshund. He is pretty laid back and cool:

Dis is Boomer. (Which is sort of confusing to me because our cat's name is Boomer.)
Boomer is a 1 year old dachshund/golden retriever cross. Grandpa calls her a Golden Wiener, BOL!

Dis is Miss Kitty. She is still kind of scared from the accident and just wants to hang out in her crate most of the time. But she is eating and drinking and using the litter box. She is alright as far as cats go...

And dis is me. You see the look on my face? It says, "what is going on???"

Dis is what Boomer looks like most of the time. She is kind of crazy. Mom says she's just young and full of energy.

Dis picture looks furry much like the picture of me in my header. Dat's weird...

Yeah, she is crazy. Dis picture proves it, BOL!

You can see the golden retriever in her face and ears. It also gave her a pretty coat.

Here is a picture of Oy running. He runs pretty slow, BOL!

He likes to hang out by the back door and watch us run.

Mom says he is cute.

But of course, not as cute as ME!!

We still don't have a lot of time fur blogging right now, but I wanted to say "hi" to my furiends, and "I miss you!" and to show you guys what was going on around here.

Hope evfurryone is well!

Marfa, Marfa, Marfa!!!

Mom was at Petsmart and saw these Marfa Stewart beds and decided she was tired of me laying on top of the back of the sofa and squishing it into a swaybacked mess, so she got me one.

She knew I would look dashing and oh-so suave in Marfa Stewart Blue. She was right.

Since it's been about 800 degrees here lately, I've been spending a lot of time playing inside and hanging out on my new Marfa bed.

Easy, grrrrrls.....

As you can see in these pictures, mom had to put loud crinkly paper on top of the sofa to keep me off. Dis is because even tho I like my new Marfa bed, I prefer to lie on top of the sofa and squish it, BOL!

Mom got me dis Star Bite thingy:

It was pretty good. I carried it around fur a long time before I ate it.

Mom and I have been furry upset about sad things going on - the deaths of Bear Bear and my good friend Dr. Dre, the TX greyhounds, and close to home, the loss of a friends husband. We found dis on Puddle's site and I'm keeping my paws crossed and thinking pawsitively about a world of love. We know the good things far outweigh the bad, but sometimes it's easy to forget...


PS. Mom is furry busy wiff work right now, so we may not be blogging much, but she says she will try to let me post at least once a week. I miss my furiends!!! :-(

I'm on a boat..!

Dis weekend mom and dad went to a big lake in western Nebraska wiff a bunch of friends. I got to go along!!! OMD, we had so much fun! We slept in a tent, ate wonderful foods, went swimming and boating, and went fur lovely walks, too.

The first morning, mom woke up early to find dis beautiful sunrise:

After breakfast, it was time fur a boat ride! Here I am modeling my life jacket. Safety first!

Me and mom on the boat. We got to watch people put long sticks on their feet and fall down in the water. Mostly they would glide on top of the water. Mostly. It was lots of fun! (No, mom didn't ski. Are you crazy? BOL!)

Later, back at shore, I did some swimming. Mom made me wear my life jacket fur to swim. Because I am such an impressive specimen of masculinity and have like 2% body fat, she was afraid I would sink like a stone.

In the evening I was furry tired from all the fun, and did lots of dis:

I will leave you wiff dis picture of me in all my suave glory, looking furry much like the Old Spice guy...

Pay attention ladies! Look at your dog, now back to me. Now back at your dog, now BACK TO ME!! Here I am, The Dog Your Dog Could Smell Like...



PS. Mom wants to thank evfurryone fur voting in the kitty art show. She will let you know what happens! :-)
