This and That Thursday

At the beginning of the week we thought we were going to have to tell you the terrible story about how we had to go to camp on Monday because Lady and Man had to work and then were having dinner with our vet and his family. (The horror of that last sentence is almost too much for us to bear). However, our vet and his family had to postpone dinner, which was good because Man has been quite ill with a bad cold. We have been saved from that for a bit. We are hoping they reschedule for a weekend so at least when they are socializing with the vet we can be at home and not at camp. 

The mice are also back after a quiet 4 weeks. The fall saw at least 20. So far this week 4 have gone in the Man's mouse Uber. 

In other news, the lovely chicken that Nelly and Phenny sent (see Tuesday's post) has met its fate. Lee killed the sound and then took all the stuffing out. She continues to attack the carcass to make sure it has not come back to life. While it is good and dead now, there hasn't been a toy Lee has loved as much for a long time, so thanks guys! 

Chicken parts everywhere. We did remove the plastic for safety reasons right away. 

Where she has removed the insides

Besides he daily chase of the wild turkeys, Phod has been joining Lady during her 30 days of yoga challenge (Yoga with Adriene, which is appropriate because Adriene's dog Benji appears in many videos).   The lighting in this picture is very bright because the Lady does her morning yoga in front of her seasonal affect disorder light.  The blanket you see on the left of the picture was made by Lady's Great-grandmother in the early 1980s (with some help from our Grammie).

This is some of the things we have been up to as we prepare for Lee's 9th birthday on Sunday!

Hope you are all having a good week!


  1. ha! that was no chicken butt a snow goose ;O))) we wish the man all the best, this current cold germs&virusses are made in deepest hell... we still have to deal with this sh*t what ruined our christmouse completely...

    All I can say is, I am glad Lee only gets within windows length of the turkeys... Now then Phod. is that the downward dog pose??? Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. You -- you -- your pawrents are going to have DINNER with the vet?!?! What a betrayal!!

  4. That is some great squeaky toy procedure and management, Lee! That's exactly what I would have done. Now the squeaky toy will fit nicely in your squeaky toy storage facility.
    Sorry to hear about your man being sick. Ghostwriter says 'tis the season. Hope he feels better soon!

  5. Winner winner not a chicken dinner for anyone including Lady and Man!!
    Oh we hope Man is feeling better
    Hugs Cecilia

  6. Oh boy! We would love to come over and help you with that mouse problem. :)

  7. You did a very thorough job, Hailey! Mom needs to get back to yoga. I need to join her here, Phod, to keep her honest.

  8. To start, here's hoping the Man's cold goes away soon. Tis the season.

    Way to go, Lee - all good chickens need to be feasted upon:)

    And Lee, you are such a good snoopervisor for the yoga sessions.

    Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  9. Oh no...more mouses?? Thank goodness for the Man's Mouse Uber!

    Glad you got a reprieve from Camp!
    Rosy, Jakey & Arty

  10. Oh no for the Man. Mom is finally getting over her crud she has had for about 2 months.
    Hazel & Mabel

  11. It looks like you sure are having fun with that chicken Lee. Your mom is so lucky to have you help her with her daily exercise Phod.

  12. I know it's sad seeing those eviscerated toys, but they always make me smile that they brought joy (even if momentary) to a precious pup.

  13. Whoa - you really killed that, Lee!!!!! I bet that it was huge fun!

    Doing your yoga in front of your lightbox sounds like a great idea. I force myself to eat breakfast in front of mine... but stretching might be more fun. Thanks for the idea!
