Belated Mutt Day - By Hailey

Sunday was Mutt Day, and since I am a mutt, it was all about me. To celebrate, Lady gave me a toy from the cupboard. You see when we went to BAR (the Blogville retreat), our dear friends Frankie and Ernie gave us some wonderful new toys. At least we think they are wonderful,we aren't sure because when we got home, Lady "tucked" them away. Sunday, she finally let me have one, the bunny.  Bunny play went like this:

Give me, give me, give me,

Let me sniff this, 

Better take it for safe keeping, 

(Editor's note - sorry about the lighting, I wanted to capture the moment and didn't adjust the camera)

Phod: What is this?
Lee: Mind your own business

Phod: Let me see - give it to me!
Lee: NO!


Phod: I want a turn!
Lee: NO!

a few minutes later - 
Lee: Finally, mine! 

A bit later:
All that playing, we better have a nap! I will sleep with you so Phod can't get you bunny!

Thank you for such a wonderful toy F and E! I love it and maybe someday I will share it! 

PS A lot of people commented about cleaning our house yesterday. We currently employ a student to come every other week and clean it. 
As for cost of heating it, it is hard to say because our heat is electric so our bills include all our power. We do our best to use the fireplace on the coldest days (when we are home) and we keep the house set at 18C/64 F. We spend about $450 C/$342 US on wood (and every year we have had a some left over) and our total electricity bill for the year is a bit over $3000 C/$2200 US. It is not that cheap but because of how the house is built (very well insulated) sadly it is not that much more than our little house in the city cost us. 
It does echo. 
The house was built by a mason, hence the wonderful stone work!
You are all welcome to come and visit:)

    KTen... my flat would fit into just your kitchen/dining/entry hall area and total fuel bill per annum would be close to two thirds of what you've given here, so I reckon you are doing okay on that one!!! Yxx

  3. oh your bunny is cute! and I love the lightning... it looks like a halo in the 2nd pic :o) I've got a toy too... butt it's in the trashcan now... probably european toys aren't made like canadian toys....or it was because I got a chicken :o)

  13. Lee, I'm very glad you got you a new bunny toy. It's these little things in life, isn't it?

  14. Phod, don't you know better than to take your sissy's toy?! What a fun time for Mutt Day!

  15. OK, furst of all you do not HAVE to share at furst. Now. maybe we might come see you on November 4th . . .

  16. Sounds like the utilities are reasonable. (Unfortunate they ran you that much in a smaller home.)
    Thanks again for hosting an online open house:)
    Again, love your new home.

  17. The toy must be very durable. We would have destuffed the little fella already.

  18. That's right, you have to protect your new toy! I don't let anyone near my new toys either, they need to spend time with me first so we can get to know each other! ;)

  19. Looks like you had blast Hailey!
    Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo

  20. You did a wonderful job of making sure YOUR toy was safe Hailey! Keep an eye on that bunny because I bet Zaphod is planning an attack soon!

    Hugs, Sammy

  21. Don't let that bunny hop away into storage again.

  22. Nice bunny! Rita is very deprived and didn't get a new toy for Mutt Day. Scandalous.

  23. Great bun-bun Frankie and Ernie gave you! Hope you can keep it safe Lee :)
