(2) This Moment, See Beautiful

Today is the 2nd Friday in June and that means it is time to join
We have two beautiful moments to share today
1. Goose    2. Dui



1.This month's TM,SB is in honor of Goose n Michelle
You cannot say one name alone...it is like an incomplete sentence.
One must say Goose n Michelle because their hearts beat
together....and it is beautiful
Brother Goose is also the Official Chaplain of Blogville

On April 8, 2013 I interviewed Goose n Michelle
Here are a few of my favorite answers from the interview that made me smile a great big Goose Smile  
To read the entire interview click
here 

# 5 is what This Moment, See Beautiful means to Goose:
5. Goose, if you could give one piece of random advice what would it be?
That no matter who you are, what you look like, where you live, or where you come from, you are beautiful.  You were created beautiful and don't let anyone, ANYONE, tell you otherwise.  Also don't lick a toad. 

6. What do you do for fun
What DON'T I do for fun.  Life is an adventure and is to be lived and enjoyed and shared.  So no matter what I do it is fun.  But my favorite thing is backpacking with my MOM and fishing.

7. What is the first thing you do each morning
Open my eyes, otherwise I would fall out of bed and hit my head.  Then I get a hug from MOM and then I pee., then I eat a strawberry or raspberry.

What Goose means to us:

Gift to all who know him
Open mind
Open heart
Sticks are his passion
Everybody loves Goose n Michelle

It has been an honor to participate in 
This Moment, to See Beautiful with
Goose n Michelle 
and most of to be their friends.  
*************************
2. You know what else is beautiful....
the moment you bring a new family member to your home.  
just got a new brudder, Macdui aka Dui
Dui you are the luckiest puppy to have found a
home with HER, Bella and Roxy. From
This Moment, you will See Beautiful
Ranger has invited everyone to give advice to Dui on how a guy can live with two strong willed sisters.  Dui is the only male in house full of women.  We were also told we could give advice to Bella and Roxy on how to live with a male Scottie
with a serious Scot-ti-tude.   

My advice is to the gals
BELLA AND ROXY (we girls have to stick together)
ON LIVING WITH THEIR LITTLE BRUDDER Macdui aka DUI!

I have two very impawtent piece of advice for MY GAL PALS 
in regards to living with a brudder. My sis told me years
ago she spent the night with her gal pal who shared a bath with her
brudder.  Sis learned the following:

 DO NOT SHARE A BATH ROOM WITH HIM WHY YOU ASK?  
1.IT IS A KNOW FACT THAT BOYZ SQUEEZE THE TOOTHPASTE FROM THE MIDDLE AND THEY NEVER EVER, NO NEVER PUT THE TOP  ON IT.
2. BOYZ NEVER REMEMBER TO PUT THE SEAT DOWN!
Sincerely 
Madi

POTP IS WORKING KEEP IT UP

JUST REC'D FROM SARGE AND THE HANDS!!! KEEP THE PAWS UP!!!!!

FRANKIE AND HIS PEEPS WILL BE HOME AND SETTLED LATER TONIGHT...AND DOING LOTS OF SNUGGLING AND LOVING!!

The ultrasound actually looked fine.  It showed no mass in the eye at all.  So, now we might be back to thinking it is just a bad infection that is blocking the vet's view of his eye.    Frankie has strong steroid antiobotics to take until Friday when he will have a follow up.  SInce they aren't sure what is going on for a certainty, this gives it a chance to be an infection and let the med work.  If it is something else, they should be able to tell Friday that the med isn't helping.  Then they can see about something else for him.    Mom is hugely relieved at least for now.  It will be a worrisome two days for her till the Friday appointment, but she is totally grateful for your vibes!  :)   
Thanks again!  
Hugs,
Lori & Sarge

POTP FOR FRANKIE

PLEASE ALL OUR GOOD BUDDIES PUT YOUR PAWS TOGETHER FOR DEAR SWEET FRANKIE.

WE JUST COPIED THE BELOW MESSAGE SARGE AND THE HANDS POSTED ON  FRANKIE'S BLOG

THANK YOU EVERYONE 
HUGS MADI AND MOM


POTP for our Frankie



Hey Furiends, this is Sarge taking over Frankie's bloggie for a minute.

He could really use some POTP and healing vibes right away!    He had an icky looking spot on his eye last night that looked like maybe a scratch or an infection.   Well, he's at the dogtor right now and it looks like this might be a mass of some type.   He's getting an ultrasound and we'll let you know more as we find out more.    For now, any of those fabulous Blogville Vibes would be a wonderful help.

Thanks furiends!
Grr and a Worried Woof,
Sarge, Pol Comm

TUESDAY TALL TAIL TALE

I WAS NAPPING IN THE CHAIR UNTIL
MOM CAME ALONG TO PESTER LOVE ON ME AND
LEAVE ME THE RING OFF THE LISTERINE BOTTLE
(which I love).  So I decided it was passed time move to my afternoon location but first, I HAD TO DO


 SOME OF MY FAVORITE 
YOGA STRETCHES
Tail and Right Paw stretch
or as mom says 'just how high can your tail go'.

 This is called Tush, tock stretch
and one tail curl
If Mom would stretch with me she would not have
any more PITTs

PSA 
Yesterday Mom rec'd an email that appeared to be from our
internet provider at&t which is run by yahoo. It told her that her email account had been logged onto from an unknown source and to click on a link to confirm her email otherwise her email would be cancelled.  Every two weeks our email asks us to log in again. Ironically, on Sunday morning while mom was on the iPad we rec'd the standard request to log in.  So naturally mom thought the 'unknown' source was the iPad.  After several attempts to click on the  link to confirm our email, we rec'd a great big screen message from Google Chrome that phising had been detected on that link and to GO BACK, the link was trying to get our password and log in information.   So be aware of this just in case you get the same message it is phising expedition do not bite!!

My strategy and Auction reminder


Is to keep TOGM (the old gray mare) on her toes and always guessing my next move.
Seeing me on this cat stump (too short for a cat tree)is a rare event.  Of course mom expected me to stay a while
but nope I allowed for one shot
 then lickety split I was down and mol she missed me jumping on the bed...only my right paw is still in the air
onto my towel for a little rotation therapy 
followed by some sniff therapy to discover it was my furs.
So I settled down for my 10th morning nap



having an auction on Tuesday, 6/10/14 in

memory of Mabel Lou at Creek Hiker

Mabel passed recently due to bloat

and now has a big dogtor bill to pay.

Click on Mollie and Alfie *link above to

visit the auction.

We know for a fact there are lots and lots

of wonderful items available.
