Taffy's Bone Saga

Remember this?

That was the first time I ever shredded anything.....
It sure was fun!

Anyway, my momma says I have "issues".
She tells me I'm "Krazy with a capital K"!

If you look closely, you will see a bone in the newspaper above.  And, yes, I do have issues with my bones.
I can't help it.

Sometimes I go with Daddy to the office where we live.  
The nice lady there always gives me a Milkbone.
Even though I know she is nice, I don't like to take the bone from her but as soon as I take it from Daddy, 
I run straight to the door.  I run all the way home with it in my mouth and hide it for later.

Then, whenever the mood strikes me, I will pick it up.....
...and start whining loudly while pacing....
trying to find the perfect place to bury my bone.
*This can last up to 15 minutes!

On this particular day, I opted for the leather chair.

Still holding my bone, I feverishly dig
trying to make sure my bone is safe.

Then, once the "hole" is big enough, 
I begin the process of placing my bone.
*She isn't lying, it is a process....takes longer than the digging.

Gotta get it all the way in there.

I shove it down as far as I can with my nose.

Next, I have to make sure it is covered so no one will find it.
*This always makes me laugh

I do a quick double check to make sure it is still there.

Nope, I don't think this spot is gonna work.

Gotta find a new spot for this bone.

Hmmm....this spot looks good.
*No digging here, just lots of pushing with her snout

Yep, that is the perfect spot!

More Bone Saga to come in the near future.

Daddy says now that I am getting mail,
I have to start paying rent!
Ummm.....yeah, right!
Sniff, sniff....I smell something yummy!

Yep, I was right, there is something yummy in here.

This sushi toy is quite interesting....
I spent a few minutes giving it a good sniffover.

Lets see....what else is in this box?
I still smell somthing yummy.

Oh, yeah!
I grabbed that baggie and high tailed it to the couch!

This plastic is not very tasty..... 

but I don't care.
I WILL get it out!!!


Look at all these fun things Khyra sent to me!
Hmmm.....this smells yummy too!
I think I'll save it for later......

Right now it is time for my bully stick.
O! M! D!  This is fantabulous!!!

Bully stick break to bury my nose in some Khyra fluff.

Twix's Flashback Friday: First Watermelon of the Summer

Twix loved to eat! 
As you will see, watermelon was one of her favorites. 

Today's Flashback was originally posted on May 31, 2009.
 I hope you enjoy reading this week's post as much as Twix enjoyed her watermelon.
It was pretty hot here yesterday so Momma decided it was time for our first summer watermelon.

Mmmmm...I love watermelon!

I'm waiting...you know I can smell that and I want some.
You can't tell in the picture but I am shivering with excitement!

Next, we went outside and I got this!Oh, this tastes great after such a hot day!
I always do a good job getting all the watermelon off the rind!
Do your Momma's give you watermelon too?

Friday Flashback with Twix

This week's flashback is for our long time followers
that loved seeing Twix in her chair.
That would be you.....Frankie!!
Twix loved to lay in the sun and some of my favorite
photos are the ones of her getting a tummy tan.

Today's Friday Flashback with Twix was originally posted on May 3, 2009.

AAAHHHH!!! Sunshine

It has been raining here all week and I've become a little blue. As you can see, I've lost all my color but today the sun came out for most of the day.
Look, my color has returned and I am soooo very relaxed!
I wish every day could be like this!

It's Date Day in Blogville!

First of all, I have to apologize for my Date Day Post not being up sooner.  For some dumb reason, my mom thinks there are other things more important than my blog.  

Sarge's Blogville Date Day

I am so excited about today's dates.  My first kitty friend, Madi, had the fantastic idea for her and I to have Date Cards.  Some of the guys are taking both Madi and I out and others are having private dates with us. 

Some of you may be wondering how in the Blogville World am I gonna be able to do all this during Date Day.  Well, I have access to a very special Blogville Time Warp.  I enter on one side and walk out the other and it is still Blogville Date Day only its morning again!

Nifty, huh?

First up is my date with Spooky!  OMC!  Isn't he the most handsome kitty with his grey and white furs and that hat!!!

And Spooky brought his brother, Adam, to pick up Madi and I.  Those gold eyes and the black top hat made my legs weak!

I sorta felt out of place at first, you know, being the only dog on the date but the boys made me feel so comfortable.....I almost started meowing.  We went to dinner at the brand new Restaurant De Blogville.  Look at our view of the city from our table.  

It was so romantic!  
They also took Madi and I to The Dog and Cat Comedy Club where the boys got up on stage and did their own comedy act!  I laughed until I snorted!

We went back home and I went straight to my time warp for my next date with Stanley.

Now, I heard a rumor that Stanley was worried he wouldn't be sophisticated enough for me and that he is  quite taken with my pink toe nails.  Look at that smile!  How could a guy with a smile like that not be sophisticated enough for me?  

So, Stanley took me on a Double Doodle Date Day with his brother, Murphy, and Murphy's girl, Riley.  You ABSOLUTELY have to go visit their blog and see all the action from the date.  

First of all he told me there would be a surprise for him to come and pick me up in Kansas City so I waited patiently for him to show up.

We had an exciting high adventure date but I don't want to give away the details here.  You will have to visit them to find out all the news.

Back home again and into the time warp for my date with Walter.
Walter is a very handsome boy.

He is rather young though so his sister Millie came along to chaperone us.

Walter and I soon realized that we both love to eat so we went out to dinner at a buffet.
Look at all that scrumptious food!   

I was so stuffed that I got wedged between the cushions on the couch and couldn't get out!

Walter was such a gentleman.  He didn't laugh at me or make fun of me.  He is quite mature for his age.  He held out his paw and helped me up and then took me on a romantic walk to work off some of that food.

Once I was able to fit into my time warp again, I headed home for my next date with Ranger.  He is a confirmed bachelor and what Momma calls a "silver tongued devil".  He is dangerous because of his good looks and he always knows what to say and do to make the ladies swoon.  

Just looking into those eyes makes my tail curl! 

Ranger picked me up in a limo and then had a very special night planned.  Smudge, his brother, and Madi went with us for a double date.  He had a beautiful wrist corsage for me.  Then we went to Chez Chat-et-Chien and had Niptinis and Liverhattans.  I think the maitre d' was supposed to show us to a nice table but for some reason this guy was our escort:

I'm not sure what happened here but Ranger seemed a bit ticked at Smudge after we got to the table.  After dinner Ranger and I listened to Yo Yo Ma play the violin and watched the other couple cut a rug.  Then we went to Blogville Lake and Ranger had set up the perfect private fireworks show.
