Day After Thanksgiving

So, we had a nice, quiet day at the Forty Paws because Maw & Paw went to some friend's house and left us all alone. Sometimes this happens. We deal with it. Sleep, chase each other around, eat, drink water, go out in the enclosure. Life goes on.

So, yesterday Maw found out that a slightly rotund poodin didn't like her new Ham-Mick because it was different than the first Ham-Mick that Maw gave her several years ago. The first Ham-Mick had the backing fabric under the fleece and so it didn't stretch out when the overweight poodin stepped on it. Now, all of us here at the Forty Paws didn't like the underneath fabric because we purrsonally like to hang low in our Ham-Micks, (since we are a wee bit overweight ourselves), and we didn't like the underneath fabric keeping us from hanging low.

So, Maw would like to know if any of you poodins who have received Forty Paws Ham-Micks have a dislike for the low-hanging fabric? We can make you a replacement fabric with backing and ship it to you. We want all of our poodin furriends to be ever so much happy with their Forty Paws Ham-Micks. Yessiree!

Annie Went to the V-E-T

Annie went to the V-E-T last Thursday because she has a cough. In 2005, Annie had pneumonia when she had a cough, so we didn't want her to have pneumonia again. She had an x-ray done, and also had blood work done. She has some inflammation in her lungs and her heart looks a bit abnormal. She was tested for heartworm. So Annie might have a hairball, or asthma or she might have a cold. Right now she is on Laxatone and an aunty-bye-otik.

In udder noos, don't forget to bid on the Snowman Ham-Mick for Moki's V-E-T bills! Only $2.00 per ticket! Good Luck to efurrybody in the raffle!

Ice Show

Our uncle from the UK came over this weekend to attend a conference this week. Maw and Paw were going to take him to the new Audubon Society thingee here in Dallas, but it was windy and chilly on Saturday, they so went to the Gaylord Resort over in Grapevine to check it out. And the yearly Ice Show was open, so they went to it and about froze to death. They give you coats to wear, but it was so cold. It was 4F there. Maw hasn't been that cold in quite some time! Anyway, here are some pictures!

8 Random Things by Dorf

We got tagged for the 8 random things meme by Niko and Cloud

Dorf will fill this out:
1. I weigh 18.8 pounds. The V-E-T was unable to extract any urine from inside me when I went in for a check-up a couple of weeks ago because I have plenty of fat layers to cover up my bladder. Heh heh.
2. My most favorististist job in da werld is testing out Ham-Micks after Maw makes them.

3. I luf yogurt. Especially blueberry or strawberry yogurt. Sometimes I like orange and sometimes I like banana yogurt too.
4. I have no teeth. They were all taken out of my mouth by a mean old V-E-T dentist.
5. I luf sharp cheddar cheese flakes fur brekfest.
6. I like to sit wid my Paw while he eets his brekfest.
7. Sometimes I pick on Obi or Reno.
8. I am losing my eyesight. It is easier for me to see when I can go out in the enclosure because it is sunny out there. I like to go out there and look at Orinch 1 and Orinch 2.


We tag efurrybuddy that would like to play, ok?

Monday Noos

It is raining today. The cats don't like to go outside into their enclosure when it is raining because they get wet. And there might be some heavy storms this afternoon. Anyway, the poodins are sleeping quite a bit. Y'all know how that goes.

Maw went shopping this weekend and picked up a few new fabrics for beds. Check out our fabric selections by clicking on Dorf's picture in the upper left corner of the blog.

This is Funny

An atheist was walking through the woods.
'What majestic trees!
'What powerful rivers!
'What beautiful animals!
He said to himself.

As he was walking alongside the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him.
He turned to look. He saw a 9-foot grizzly bear charge towards him.


He ran as fast as he could up the path.
He looked over his shoulder & saw that the bear was closing in on him.
He looked over his shoulder again and the bear was even closer.

He tripped & fell on the ground.
He rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the bear was right on top of
him, reaching for him with his left paw & raising his right paw to strike him.


At that instant the Atheist cried out, 'Oh my God!'

Time Stopped.
The bear froze.
The forest was silent.

As a bright light shone upon them, a voice came out of the sky.

'You deny my existence for all these years, teach others I don't exist and even credit creation to cosmic accident. Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament?

Am I to count you as a believer?'

The atheist looked directly into the light, 'It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask you to treat me as a Christian now, but perhaps you could make the BEAR a Christian.'

'Very Well,' said the voice.

The light went out. The sounds of the forest resumed and the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together, bowed his head & spoke:





'Lord bless this food, which I am about to receive from thy bounty through Christ our Lord, Amen.'
