We have been on vacation for the Holidays. It has been very hectic around here, but we had wonderful friends from Memphis, TN come stay the entire Holidays. It was so much fun!! But now they have left, and I am just trying to gear up for the New Years Eve bash. I hope all of your Holidays are good.......
Hi Everypuppy and girl girl Frankie Grrrl here. Our bee-woo-tiful Husky gal pal Maya Marie was so kind and sent us some of her homeade Chritmas treats! Towards the end of the evening last night, there was a doorbell ring, we immediatly ran to the door, but alas, no one there, we looked down on the porch, and there was a package. Mom opened it up, and there were the cutest doggie cookies we had ever seen.....
"Just look at these"! "Oh yummy: lets try now Mom"
Oh they look so tasty! Mind Meld to Mom...EAT NOW, TRY NOW!
Oh Yeah Franks, keep it up.....I think she's almost there...Drool
OHHH thanks Mom! I'll take it and run
Taken straight to the carpet to REALLY enjoy......Now only crumbs...
These are super duper tasting treats MayaMarie! We love them...And we thank you so very much!
Frankie Girl here. I got to thinking about the photo shoot Maddie and I did for the DWB Xmas Card Xchange. It was a challenging day. Mom and Dad tried several things, places and such. I thought I would share some of the ones that did not make the cut...... hehe I call this, the why r we here and wut r we doing shot:
OK Now its just boooooooooring! I take a Big Yawn in..Maddie still wondering wut is going on with her tongue drooling.
Maddie is either carb'ed out or hypnotized here:
This was only one beginning location for the photo.......and then mom's digi cam battery went cahput! So this was not a wrap!
Then Mom gets in car to drive home.........while we wait with Dad...
Hey guys! It's me, Maddie taking the blog over today.
Recently, we had a visitor in my swimming pool. I came upon this guy. He was just lying in the pool water, silent, just near my steps. I don't have a pic of him when he was just floating, sort of playing possum like. I didn't know what to do! I wanted to get him. Really really bad. But I am not sure him and I had the same idea as to what "getting" him really meant! Hmmmmmmmm Well I did want to "get" him out.
So my Mom catches on, (she always does, darn), gets the magic scooper and saves this guy just like that!
OH COOL! Nooooow we can play Mr. Lizard!
NICE TO EAT, errr, I MEAN MEET You......Now Just a little further down MOM!
But that was to be the end of the Lizards Tale......And our meeting was just so brief! Much too short! Thanks Mom. And here goes the saved Mr. Lizard with his tail right over the block wall. Goodbye Mr. Lizard, till we meet again ;-)
Many of you have already started decorating and putting up Christmas trees. We have not really started any decorating as of yet. However, Mom did come home this last long howliday weekend with two new items.
The first one, I have to offer up for your viewing pleasure is this: He is pretty nice, and I do like pretty things, changes colors and all.
Now, the upcomming one I suppose reminded my Mom of a certain Lab that I call my sister. Hmmmmmmmm, but it did make me laugh alot! What do you all think? I don't think its in the "pretty" category. More comical than anything!
"HaROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" Funny One Mom
Here is the "New" Chocolate" Doggy Christmas Decoration......Errr "Santa"?
Frankie Grrl here. Mom went shopping and brought home some new treats for us the other day. They are called Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Treats, and man are they ever so gooooooooooooooooooooooood. BIG paws up!
I think they are one of my favorite things to eat in life! My first being Chicken and my second being sliced cheese. These things are so awesome. My only problem is that Mom hands them out so sparingly! I want more. Maddie swallows them whole, just like she does everything, she doesn't chew. She likes them tons, I just don't know if she ever really savors the taste a bit. Hope you are having a good day doggies.
Hi Doggies, It's Maddie the Chocolate Bunny! First we want to say, sorry for the absence. We have been scarce since the Southern California Fires took way. We are happy to say that we are all fine here. It was a very hard time here, and we had to work very hard to give our Mom a hand with everything, while Dad was off working very hard at the San Diego Fire, helping restore power for them. But now we are breathing fresh air and things have returned back to normal! Yippppppppe
That said, we celebrated a bit with friends, and welcomed the Halloween night. And look what they made of me! Well some of you may know, my Sibe Sis Frankie is a Sibe-Tini kinda girl. So I was a Lab Sibe-tini Server for the night.
Don't I look ever so happy with my costume? Errrrr not! Well I hope they all had a good time anyway. I guess it must have been the bad air quality the bipeds breathed for all those days of fires that prompted this behaivor..... Yeah thats it. Hope you all had a Happy Safe Halloween, Luv, Maddie
Hey Pups! Frankie Grrrl and Maddie here today. Well, we can sum Living Room painting into one word "STRESS", Oh there was plenty of Maddie Tail paintbrushing, Me Frankie, wanting attention, (Whats so hard trying to do that and paint, I ask?). But mostly a Color Malfunction. Mom was so careful too, much preperation and thought behind the 3 colors that would be used. One for the walls, should have been a light brown, but when Dad painted almost two days worth, came out looking almost WHITE! How can this be? We don't know, but we ran outside when we saw the problem. Anwyway, so off to Home Depot, new deeper brown chosen...And we have this color on the wall now, Entry way, Living Room and Hallway.
We still have tons of "touch up" painting to do. But we have ONE ?????????????????????????????? Can we play now....
Don't Let them Bring Paint Cans Home DOGGIES! Hope you all get to Play today, Frankie Grrrl and Maddie the Chocolate Lab Bunny
Ok Doggies, Can you read this sign that has been posted for us!? This does not look like a GOOD thing? PAINTING? Oh, the parents have been talking about painting the Living Room for over a year! We had no warning! Just this posted sign! Now dad is laying down all kinds of plastic, and draping it all over the furniture piled in the living room. Maddie is already romping all over the plastic on the floor, enticing me to play and run with her. Oh Pups, This is not gonna be fun!
Well it's always good to smell the Vacuum
Yes, Bartender, I would like a Ice Cold Beer please, make it a Cornita's Quick!
Anyone have a bottle opener....Woooooooooooooo
Doggies, Stay Tuned, It's ONLY Friday night, we got a long way to go *sigh* I think the Living Room was just fine....................
Hi Puppers, Frankie Girl here today. It's been beautiful here these last couple of days, so I have been outside in the backyard swimming area, just quietly contemplating, watching the birds above and enjoying the late morning smells. Notice there is no trace of my ultra swimming pool splasher sister Maddie the Chocolate Labbie around? My Mom lets me sit outside alone with her somedays, so I can just enjoy. It is BLISS, I tell you......... The Sibe ear picture is for my Mom, she just adores Sibe ears, she says they are so cute, something special about them.
Hi Doggies, We haven't posted in a while, Shame on us. Our Mom hasn't let us post, so we will totally put the blame on her. But she is taking a small nap right now so we just fired the darn puter up ourselves and said to each other, we are just going to suffer the consequences. Yeah, right,like what consequence could she ever really dole out to us two beloved puppers of hers, you guys all know, all it takes is the sad cute eye look. Hee Hee Anywayzzzz, here is a picture of us. I think my Sister Frankie wants to show me something here, like something really fun, but I still am not sure. Doesn't she look like she is really chomping down?????? Nawwww, I love playing with my Sibe Sister, and she is really gentle on me, but boy is she agile! She can fly through the air like a monkey and land on a dime, and you barely had time to really see it happen.
Maddie here today, and I wanted to share some sweet days of summer pictures with you. What can I say, but Summer and Swimming is my favorite time. I live for swimming, splashing, jumping, and playing with my favorite pool toy of all time. The BLUE Round Rubber Pool Floatie Toy! My Mom picked this toy up "Somewhere" when I was a wee little Maddie Peanut Head Puppy. Problem is, she is trying to be a bit cautious with this toy, as she has no clue where she purchased or found it at! Yes, you guys all know the feeling of that EXTRA Special toy, that may or may not be replaceable! GASP GASP GASP! Anyways, OK here it is!!!!! My Bestest Ever Pool Toy
Surfing While Waiting for a Throw
For Anyone Wondering....A Swimming Lab Must have a toy readily available at ALL times
Puppers, have you ever had one of those days, its just such a happy day, you are playing crazy wild doggies with a sibling (in my case Frankie), and things go a bit awry? Well today I had one of those days. You see, Mom and Dad got a new boat, the boat peoples give Dad some real nice thank woo's shirts, one for Mom one for Dad. Mom unpacks the next morning, to wash, but first decides to do a little puter time, so she places on granite to come back to. Contently she works on puter, listening to the sounds of her two loving dogs playing right in the next room, the living room, its where all are toys are in a nice little basket. Mom knows every noise we make, what is right, and when something sounds wrong. Alarm Alarm......something not sounding right. Mom enters, to see me with a brand new Dads tank top, I am stomppin on,dragging around and shaking. What, I am just haven some doggie fun!!! Right? She doesn't seem to appreciate the Tank Top Remodel, and had to call Dad about his shirt. Every once in a while doggies, I have a dog day. Other than that I am perfect :-)
Hey Every Doggie! It's me Frankie Girl. Today I am going to share some images of when I was about, ohhhhhh, 1-2 years old. Right now I am 4. Four is good, but as well, growing up was such great fun. Of course at that time there was no Maddie the Chcocolate sister, I was the baby of the house! I grew up with a White German Shepherd whose name was Luke. He was a great brother to me. Anyways, I just wanted to share a couple of photos of those days with all you doggies. The one photo of the pool and me floating, don't get confused or anything, I don't swim, I will only float around on this mat, and that is only if my Mom is very near. She feeds me ice cubes from a Martini glass while I do this, its sort of "our" time together. Here we go..........................
Lounging Around Like the Rocker Girl that I AM "Hoo_Hum" Yaaaawn
NOTHING BETTER THAN ALL THE TOYS ONE CAN HANDLE. However I do not get the "Hooves" any longer, I got a very bad Slab Fracture on my tooth and had surgery. Mom does not allow those bad things in our house anymore...siiiigh
