Bakin', bakin', bakin', but no bacon....

Momma haz bin bizee bakin' lotsa Chrissymus goodies... She's made Spritz cookies (2 and a half batches), 2 batches of peanut brittle, 1 batch of pecan brittle, Bacardi Rum cake, Sandies (also known as Mexican wedding cakes), peanut butter blossoms (dey's got Hershey's kisses in da middle), Tollhouse cookies, Lemon Tea Bread, Pumpkin Bread... and da dough fur Sugar Cookies. Tomorrow she will bake those up and they'll git decoramatated.. Also will make Chocolate Marshmallow Treats, Mint brownies, fudge, divinity, Pecan Paulines, and who knows whut else in da next few days???

I's snagged a coupla bites of a few of da above treats... mostly a Spritz cookie here and dere... and anythang dat hits da floor-- bol!!

But dere were no bacon dis Saturday mornin' fur brekkiefast... and Travis was MAD! He ran ovfur to his bacon stashun and got in da "receeve bacon posishun" fur nuthin'.... well, Momma tried to give him a lil scrambly egg but after eatin' one bit, he took off in a huff and gave Momma da stinkeye!! It were hee-lare- ee- us!!

Momma jest gots home from da Central Market wiff 3 pounds o' bacon... so I guesses dere will be bacon tomorrow... And Travis just went ovfur to her in da living room and made nice.. It are amazin' whut sum pork will do for his Chrissymus spirit..

Udder dan dat, da weather's been crummy, so no zombie patrol. Whitley's Momma's bin amusin' hurself by posin' us in antlers and junk. Hey, I'll do 'bout anythang fur a cookie....


Gotta run and see if anyone has dropped sumthin' on da floor wurff eatin'....

Miss Kyla... Furwell, my furiend...

Just got da news dat da wunnerful Miss Kyla made her trip to da Rainbow Bridge dis mornin'.



Dat sucks. Big time. She were one funny gal, always tellin' it like it is. Us Texans like dat in a pup. No bull hockey, just da troof like she saw it.

I hopes she is runnin' pain free at da Rainbow Bridge, gorgin' on green beans, and playin' wiff her bff, Kenzie. We sure will miss ya here in Blogville, Kyla.

I will do my best to carry on da terrierist tradishun here on Blogville in yer honor, Kyla...

All I want fur Chrissymus.... well, addishuns to my list...

Y'all might recall my last post detailin' whut I wanted fur Chrissymus... da usual stuff, like toys, and yummies and junk like dat.

But it looks like I needs to add to my list. Ya don't think Santa Paws will mind, do ya?

Dear Santy Paws,
I knows I already hit ya up fur sum new toys, some yummies and all dat stuff.

Well, I still wants dat.

But could ya bring me sumthin' else?

See, my ear hematoma came back and now my right ear is all floppy. Whut wiff whut da allergeez has  done to my furs, I don't need no floppy ear. Da zombies might think I ain't lissenin' fur dem and takes advantage, ya know? I's startin' to look kinda like I's already bin ravaged by da zombie hordes.

So if ya can bring me sumthin to make my ear stand up agin, dat would be gud.

(Momma sez dat cuz da hematoma came back my ear just might alwayz be dis way... if dat's da case, well, den gives me sum more toys instead, okay?)

luv,
Finley aka Da Queen of Toys



In udder news, I sees Dory is havin' a big Chrissymus pawtee comin' up and Ruby is lendin' her Yente services to "fix" pups up.... I sure hope dey don't mean da same kind of fixin' like "goin' to da vet to get fixed"...har har!!  
I knows dey means matchmakin'... hope Ruby has better luck wiff her matches dan sum udder pup did when he tried to fix me up-- seems da boy pup had a skeery girlfuriend dat I dinn't know nuffin' bout, but boy did Blogville tells me whut wuz whut... and it ended wiff me gettin' picked on fur wearin' clothes-- which I has to wear cuz of my allergeez-- dey keeps me from chewin' on myself and helps me not to get sunburned in da summer since some of da hair on my back went AWOL and nevfur came back... I wishes I could wear da cute dresses Momma makes me, but dey is usually just worn fur photo ops...

So dis floppy-earred, clothes wearin' pup will be flyin' solo at Dory's party... or stayin' home wiff da Crockett. He and Angelique is too young fur such wild shenanigans anyways... young and impreshunable...


Well, maybe me baby-sittin' dem ain't such a good ideer afteralls, dem bein' impreshunable and all....bol!bol! Though I do knows how to keep an eye on 'em....


I guess Whitley has already showed y'all our tree... maybe I'll show ya sum udder decorashuns next time...



Bark ya later, gators!

My Santy Paws List

Daisy da Scottie wuz hostin' a Blog Hop 'bout lists fur Santy... well, as usual, I is late to da pawtee cuz my secremetary wuz all bizze today puttin' up da outside lights. At least, da is da lame-oh excuse she gave me.... I'll put up some photos of da lights once she finishes decoratin'-- should be dis weekend.

Now to da important stuff. My list fur Santy...

Unlike so many of my pals, I ain't selfless and gen-er-us, I's a terrier, and I's got a serious toy addikshun. Not gonna ask fur peace on Earth, cuz, let's face it, I likes a good kerfluffle now and then. Not gonna ask fur evfurrybuddy to luv all da dog breeds, cuz I's terrierfied of da bully breeds since one tried to eats me in my own front yard. I already gots to share da big bed wiff Crockett, so I ain't askin' fur any more critters here, although if Ally gits a new kitty, dat are fine, since he would sleep wiff her and dat would means more kitty fuds to try and steal-- I mean "share"...

So wiff dat intro, here I go...

Dear Santa,
I's been a gud pup dis year. Just ask Momma. I lets her waterboard me wiffout too much complainin'-- okay, I bites at da towels, but I hates towels. I been nice to da kitties -- well, if dey smacky paws me I duz tell 'em off, but I watches out fur 'em, too.... I is evfur vigilant fur zombiez and evful skwerrils and protects da homefront.
So I hopes my goodness will be richly rewarded.

Furstly, I wants toys. Lotsa toys. Ya knows how I luvs toys, Santa, and how I nevfur gits enuff. Why, Momma brought a bag home from da pet store a couple of days ago, and while da kitties wuz tryin' to git into my fud, I wuz tryin' to git da sweater outta da bag cuz I thought it wuz a toy. It weren't.

Next, some treats would be great. Peanut butter ones and Texas Toothpicks is my favorite.

Maybe some new clothes... but Momma usually makes my clothes. Maybe you could git her to werk on dat? And makin' me a dog bed? She made one fur Whitley, one fur Maurice-- it are past bein' my turn.

And git her to start bakin' dose Christmas cookies... maybe I can beg a few off da folks here and dere.

See how I's lightenin' yer load, Santy? All ya needs to do is light a fire under Momma and haff yer werk here is done!!!

So git dose elves to crankin me out some new stuffies and say "hi" to Mrs. Santy fur me.... duz she make ya good cookies? It sure duz looks like she are a wunnerful cook...bol, bol!

Here are a blast from da past... first photo is from 2009, me and my kitty pal, Jezebel... it are my furst Chrissymus wiffout my buddy....


Next photo is from 2010-- look how much hair I usta have... durn allergeez!!!

SEPIA SATURDAY and CLEARIN' UP SOME CONFOOSHUN


Happy Sepia Saturday, Evfurryone! Well, we gots a walk today and it were a bee-you-ti-full day.. in da 70s and sunny. We don't has the pretty colored trees dey gots in New England ( I wents to visit Whitley in Boston one October when she and her Momma lived dere and we wents to New Hampshire... real purdy colors dat time of year).... but we gots some purdy trees here, too...


Dese trees is on our walk today... see how blue da sky is?? It were nice and breezy, too, and da wind wuz kickin' up da leaves... I wuz sportin' my Steve Jobs look... a black turtleneck jumpsuit... I thinks I's kinda stylin'....


Hey, if any of you pups likes to wear cute tshirts and hoodies, head on ovfur to Ruff Ruff and Meow.... if you use da code BLACKFRIDAY at checkout, ya saves 50% on evfurrything in da store thru Sunday night. As fashion directors of Blogville, me and Whitley directed da Mommas to buy us some new duds and thought we'd share the sale and discount code with all y'all.... Happy Shopping, evfurryone!!

And just in case any of ya don't get ovfur to da blog of da kitties, Lone Star Cats, here is a recent photo of my lil brofur, Crockett.... he sure is growin' up fast. Sometimes we sleeps up next to each other in da big bed wiff my Momma and Daddy...

Which brings me to da last part of my post... and I's tryin' to clear up some confooshun. See, I belongs to my Momma and Daddy, and so does Crockett.   Whitley and Travis belong to my Momma and Daddy's daughter, Kim. 

Both my Momma and Whit's Momma make der own Chrissymus cards and keep a list of people and furs they sends 'em to.... somehow, when we joined up to da Chrissymus card list fur Blogville, evfun though we did it separately, they lumped all us pets wiff my Momma, Donna.

But Whitley and Travis belong wiff der Momma, Kim. 

Us pups, bein' terriers,  don't really likes to share... we rips toys in haff when we tries to boff play wiff 'em at da same time.....

So, if ya sends Whitley's card to her and my cards to me, ya will get a handmade card from each of da Mommas... if not, well....

We'll have a tug of war and yer card will probably meet da same fate of many a toy in da toy hospital, ya know?? Bol!!

Rain, rain, go away....

Well, it are rainin' here today, and as some of ya who know me better know, I don't do rain. Nope, hate it, hate wet grass, tippy-toe thru it like it is a disease. So we is stuck inside wiff no zombie patrol and a nasty gray day outside. Fur some reason, Momma thought it would be a good time to waterboard me... I think dat dumb rain gave her the ideer wiff all da drip, drip, drippin' it wuz doin' on da skylight... sigh......

So I got waterboarded in Dad's shower, using da new shampoo wiff da Evenin' Primrose Oil and den swaddled all up like a baby in layers of towels and put in da middle of Momma and Daddy's bed to wait fur my clothes to come outta da dryer. Here's my AFTER picshure, all clean and sweet smellin'...


I's smilin' cuz I's glad da torture is ovfur!! Well, not really ovfur since it are still rainin' and Momma just drug me out to do my bidness... which I hate doin' on a wet canvas. You would think she could dry the lawn fur me or sumthin'... nope. Wet grass. Yuck.

In better news, my ear hematoma has gone down... all by itself (well, along with some Traumeel liquid I took, too).. no cuttin', no stitchin, no pain. It were my right ear, and you can see in the photo above that almost all da puffiness is history... 


I wanted to share dis photo of a re-bloomin bearded iris we gots in da front yard. It are kinds unusual dat da "repeat" iris actually do repeat fur us here in da Big D area.


Speakin' of da garden, Momma has ordered a kazillion bulbs fur plantin' fur Spring blooms... toolips and dutch iris and daffydils... along wiff da daylilies she gots in pots and da bearded irises in pots, too, dat are a whole lot of gardenin' she gots to do in da next coupla months. She are gonna be one bizzee bee and I's gonna be bizzee snoozin on da lounger-- I mean snoopervisin' her work... She gots to go put da toolips in da fridge fur chillin' cuz it don't get cold enuff here...bol!

I met a new pup on here recently, name of Frisbee Bradley... Frisbee writes some real entertainin' entries and I sure would appreciamatate it if y'all could go ovfur and visit Frisbee's blog and leave a comment.... new bloggers can always use some encouragement, ya know? (Just click on da link-- Frisbee's name...)
