Torture Thursday - A Singing Card

I got a singing card for my birthday. Hailey didn't like it. She destroyed it. 

After it was destroyed the real torture started. We put the piece that made the sound in squirrel.  I hope the video plays:)

Tasty Tuesday - Sunday Breakfast

Angel Sammy and Teddy are always celebrating bacon day on Saturdays. Man and Lady don't eat bacon every week and when they do, they are not good at sharing it. However, on Sunday, they decided to give the pups a special treat. 

First up was a plate mostly with bacon grease. It was a small plate. Phod was not sure he liked bacon. Lee knew it was her favourite - mind you almost everything is her favourite! 

After a minute Phod decided he may like bacon too.

There are now two pups who want everyday to be bacon day!

Mischief Monday - Storms

While on the 19th we talked about how the Lady went out for zip lining  but we didn't talk about the mischief this caused.

A short storm rolled in while the people were out. As she was alone, Hailey was forced to do the following:

It appears she tried to dig her way into the guest room. When asked about it, she was too busy stretching to answer. 

This past weekend was also hard for our girl. There was a combination of thunderstorms and fireworks as it was a national holiday in our province. She did better with the fireworks, but with the thunder she hid in the basement between the washer and drier and 

when she felt brave came up to be with us in the kitchen. Notice how far her little tail is tucked up. She was shaking so badly and refused to eat her dinner. She remains on her prozac, but I am not sure if it is helping (although I am terrified to think of what she would be like without it). 

What makes this worse is she has shared her fear of storms with Phod. He is now nervous during them. The other night I awoke to 75lb Shepherd laying on top of me. It is going to be a long summer!

Flower Friday

We join the DB Boyz for Flower Friday.

Lady spied this one at Rideau Hall in Ottawa. She went to visit it for the first time.

As you may or may not know, Canada is a constitutional monarchy. This means the Queen is our head of state, followed by her appointed representative who lives in Canada, the Governor General, then our elected Prime Minister. Rideau Hall is the home of the Governor General.

Torture Thursday - by Phod

I, Zaphod, try really hard to be a good boy, but this doesn't save me from being tortured. The other day the Man noticed my ear was looking red, which may mean I am getting an ear infection (I get those a lot) so he decided to clean it.

He made me lay on the floor, and Lady thought instead of saving me she would capture this on film. 

No Lady I will not stay still so you get better pictures.

Ok the massage part at the end isn't so bad

Friends, so your people do things they claim are good for you but really suck?

Tongue Out Tuesday - Cousin Emma

Uncle Chris got sent home early from his course (he needs more practice with big scary weapons, something we aren't sad he doesn't have), so Emma left on Sunday.   She was a very good guest this time and we are sure she will be back soon.


Bella, Dui and Roxy suggested that Lady might want to celebrate her 100th birthday with skydiving. She has already crossed that off her bucket list. Her very first flight, when she was 18, was skydiving. It was back in the days when you didn't jump tandem, rather you stood on the wing and jumped as someone in the plane pulled your cord for you. Most of the time Lady is a complete wimp, but she has these moments of stupidity bravery.

The Biggest Mischief Celebrates

The biggest mischief maker in our house, the Lady, is celebrating another year of old!  If you assume she is a medium size human then she is turning 6 in dog years today.

As always, she has made this milestone an event (it included getting a tattoo, doing an aerial course and zip lining, eating out, going shopping), all things that didn't include us.

In spite of being left out of the party we wish our Lady a very Happy Birthday!

Lady's first birthday. It is the same look she has now if she was to have a  traditional party.

Selfie Sunday - Sneaky

When Lady put me in the garage because a delivery person was here, I snuck Precious into the house. I was so proud of myself I took this selfie.

Lady was super nice and let me keep my Precious in the house for hours. When Man got home from work he took it from me after we went out to play.  It was a great day!

Thankful Thursday - Thanks Aunt C

Aunt C had a dog bed she didn't want any more (maybe it is because she doesn't have dogs, nor has ever had dogs) so she sent it home with the Lady when Lady went to her house for a visit.

We love it (it is our 4th like this) but this one is extra special because it smells like our cat cousins Lupul and Panda!

Thanks Aunt C!

Mischief Monday - I Own The Road

Dramatic Recreation

Yesterday, Lady had us out for a walk around 7. As we were heading back to the house, we saw a woman coming down our favourite road. I, Hailey, in order to make sure the woman understood she was on my road, barked. The woman, who was at least 30 feet away and in no danger, threw up her arms and turned around. 

I showed her I owe the road and no one else can use it!

Selfie Sunday - Emma

Cousin Emma has now been in our house for 2 weeks. She has adjusted very well. The first few days were hard. On our first walk (me and the 3 dogs)  she refused to walk part way back and I had to carry her while trying to walk the other two. For a couple of days she lost her walk privileges but has been walking like a champ every since. 

She also refused to eat. Because she was not eating, her stomach got upset. A little rice and then a little rice mixed into her food and she decided she would eat.

She has destroyed toys. She has insisted on being held in the night. She sits on my lap during my morning meditation. However, she is not peeing all over the house like previous visits (helped by the fact she is crated while we are out) and she isn't demanding to be held all the time. Overall, it is going well.

Speedy Saturday

It's a bird, it's a plane, no it is a Phod chasing Precious!

He looks so beautiful and happy when he is running!

Question For Phenny - by Lee

Dear Phenny,

I have a questions for you. Angel Easy and I began to dig tunnels on our side of the world with the hopes of making it to the centre of the earth and creating a tunnel to visit.

I am still doing my part and working on my side. It is slow progress as half the year we have snow.

Are you keeping up Easy's side?

Your pal Lee

London Is In Our Hearts

Another weekend, another act of hate. We join most of the world in sending our love to those have been affected by this and all acts of hate in all corners of the globe. We are also shouting to those who want us to live in terror:

United we will find a way to peace.

Flower Friday - Special Borrowed Picture

As there are no flowers in our yard and Lady hasn't been anywhere with flowers she could photograph, she borrowed this picture from the internet.

This is the Canada 150th Tulip, also know as the Maple Leaf Tulip.  Canada celebrates a 150th birthday this year and this flower is one of the many ways Canadians are celebrating it.

It is a pretty flower and it does remind us of the Maple Leaf.
