Sunny Sunday.

Hey everypup ~Misty here~

Today we've been out in the yard causing all kinds of ruckus.  The birds are out being especially annoying as only birds can be.  The EVIL NEMESIS CROWS have already pissed off Scooter enough today that at one point I thought he was going to turn himself inside out spontaneously.
Calm down Scooter, you'll blow a gasket.
We all enjoyed the sunshine and getting our yard back into Spring season order.  
Oh, is this the fence I'm not supposed to be behind?

Scooter on his way to see if the neighbor dog is out to bark at.

Mr. Cutter for once, not running and not barking.

Hey let us in, and you might want to think
about washing those nose prints off the glass.
Well lunch break is over, we're headed back out to snoopervise Mom bending over, pulling stuff and complaining about the weeds already!

Frazzled Friday.

Hey everypup ~Misty here~

Mom says it's "busy time" at work.  Guess this will happen for the next month and then it will be normal hours again.  Sounds disgusting to me and I was not happy when Mom showed up late this evening.

She didn't even have to make dinner.  She had it "after work".  WTWoof?  Dinner here at home is "after work" if you ask me!

Not looking at you.
Of course I have to put up from this from my brother Scooter.

I have a SCOOTER*SNACK™, and my sister doesn't.

Cutter is causing the most trouble he can at all possible moments.  Some teenage pups really never grow up at all.  (He's 10...and still acts like a 2 year old).

All it takes is 1 single BARKBARKBARK!

Then the flowers start flying!

Next  thing you know, it's flower petals spreading happiness.

Don't DO it!.  Do Not Look Into The Eyes!
Ack - got sucked in by Pepper Power didn't you!!
That's the pupdate on life and this weekend should bring good barking because Mom will be pulling up the last of coverings over anything that needs it.

Wackadoodle Wednesday.

Hey everypup ~Misty here~

Happy Spring everypup.  Looking forward to getting out of fluffy dog season!

Crazy fluffy dog look.

Fluffy dog paws.

One of the first things we learned when we were wee pups was "Settle" which means stop wiggling your butt or licking Mom's face when we go to bed.  The next thing we learned was "Quite Time" which means go to sleep.

I've got Quiet Time mastered!!
Any other pups out there ready for this winter weather to be behind us and head into spring and start sniffing some flowers and sitting in some warm green grass?

Magnolia in the morning.

Magnolia at night.

Does this grass look me look small?
Well that's my Wackadoodle Wednesday post for now.

Where I am Not, Yet Mom is.

Hey everypup ~Misty here~

Mom went on vacation to Ocean Shores while Scooter and I went to "staycation" at our favorite sleepover times MsL.  Scooter runs with the big dog Booger and I get spoiled by MsL.  Who even cares if Pepper and Cutter got to stay at home while another friend watched them.  I'm just happy that I'm getting extra-extra-extra attention from MsL because she loves me most!

Mom's been sending me pictures on my iBone and I thought I'd share them with my comments being returned.

Them's the weirdest looking guard dogs I've ever seen!

The next one we got a few minutes later.

Waaaaayyyyy over that away is the other side of the world.

The weather was supposed to be kind of like this all weekend at Ocean Shores.  Suffering from AbandondedDogSpoiledSyndrome I fully approved of the weather forecast!

Cranky Weather.

Juicy Clouds.



Wavering Outcast.

Encroaching Cold Front.

Tagged by a Texan Hoodlum!

Hey everypup ~Misty here~

It seems while I was napping with my SNACK™, Finley the Westie from Texas snuck by and tagged my house.  There was torn up paper all over the ground, dug up spots in the ground, toilet paper hanging from the bushes.  BOL, just kidding.  Not that kind of tagged.

A lovely award was left on my doorsteps.  Did any other pups get the same kind of award?  Has it gone viral?

It even comes with rules on how to keep it alive and growing.
Rules for the Liebster Award:
1.  Each nominee must link back the person who nominated them.
2.  Answer the 10 questions which are given to you by the nominator.
3.  Nominate 10 other bloggers for this award.
4.  Create 10 questions for your nominees to answer.
5.  Let the nominees know they have been nominated by going to their blog and notifying them.

Well here are my questions that were tucked under the trophy when I woke up from FIRST NAP™.

1. What is your favorite time of year and why??
Well Pawsonally I believe it would be the Dog Days of Summer of course!

2. Duz ya have a special talent or trick ya duz?
I'm not sure if Mom would classify it as a "talent", but I have an amazing ability to whine at the level that "splits the last nerve" whatever that means.  My trick is that I can jump into Mom's arms and give her a "hug" (she hates dog "spit" on her face - weird woman).  When I give hugs I throw my whole head into a chest and my head tucks under a chin.  It's very dramatic.  

3. What is your favorite food and how do you get your folks to give it to you??
If it came down to me and a pile that I had to guard with my life, it would be CHEESE, GREENIES, BACON, MEATZ™.  Certainly not the dang carrots we've been given lately!

4. What is the funniest thang you has evfur done?
I was a wee pup.  Once when we were out on the Puget Sound, I was in the small boat with Scooter headed to Camano Island to have Privacy Please time.  Mom was on the big boat and waved at us and said "Have a good time!".  I just jumped right out of the small boat and started swimming toward Mom.  Except she was really far away so I turned around and headed back to the small boat.  

5. Duz you believe in da Easter Bunny?
 Of course.  I believe in Santa Paws too. Leprechauns, Fairies, Gnomes, Withces, Cupid, you name it.

6. Who is your Evil Nemesis?

7. Do you sleep with your hooman?
I always sleep on the pillow next to Mom.  Graciously I share the rest of the bed with, in order, Mom, Cutter, dog hair, pillows, sometimes a cell phone or remote control, and last and least.  Pepper.  See above link.

8. Do you believe in da danger dat is zombies?
Well, we up in the PNW (Pacific NorthWest - not Wet; but, well, moistly BOL) have Sasquatch so I guess Zombies wouldn't be too much of a stretch after that.  

9. Which do you find more annoying-- birds or squirrels??
This is a trick question right?  If the EVIL NEMESIS SQUIRREL is on the fence taunting us then it's #1.  However if the CROWS are cawing and swooping and ripping up our yard or window boxes then they become ##1!!!  

10. If you could have one wish come true, what would it be?
  More wishes?  MEATZ™ on earth?  

Well pups, we are going to break the rules and only post questions below and not ask any pups to be tagged.  Just pick one question and answer it in the comments if you feel like it.  I'm a Queen of All She Surveys, so I can break or make my own rules*.  BOL.  
*Addendum - apparently I cannot bark as much as I like or whenever I feel like it.

#1.  Do you keep vigilance all day long if your human is gone, or do you just sleep like I do?

#2.  Did you or did you not; save your human from the Boogie Man last night by barking during REM slumber?
#3.  When is the most inappropriate time to ask to go outside for Privacy Please™ time?
#4.  Are you a Water Dog, a Sun Dog or a Couch Dog?
#5.  What raises your hackles more?  FedEx, UPS, USPS or the Evil Solicitors?
#6.  What food group makes your nose twitch?  Dairy (CHEEZE™) or Protein (MEATZ™).
#7.  Tap water, bottled water or rain water?  Which is the best to lap up?

#8.  Sunshine or shade for snoozing ?
#9.  If a woodchuck could chuck wood, would you care or just bark at it?
#10.  What is your favorite spot to just let it all hang out and catch some zzzzzz's?
