Tuesday Telling and Tagged!

I'm Tuesday Telling...
I've been spending time thinking what I'll do to impress Auntie Di...
The paw khrossing should be good...
And a khoy look or two...
Of khourse, I khan't go wrong with the deep pondering look...
I'll break out a bottle of something...
And toast to her fur khoming!
I mean, why would she want to leave T H I S to khome to T H I S ? ? ?
******
Now Mom will be doing some telling since she was T A G G E D
I'm supposed to share TEN things about me
1) Growing up, I went through a phase of wanting to become a nun and/or teacher (okay, quit your snickering on the former)...
2) Then I wanted to be a dentist since I hated the dentist and thought I could be the kind of dentist people wouldn't mind going to...
3) I seriously considered a Physician's Assistant Programme at St Francis College in Loretto...was accepted into the programme but...
4) I'll be 50 in 29 days AND on that day we also will celebrate Khyra's THIRD Gotchaversary!
5) I'm the eldest of four...we alternated girl boy girl boy...all born on Wednesday's...all progressively later in the day...
6) York is the fourth town/city I've lived in...all the places were in Pennsylvania...
7) The only foreign country besides Canada I've been to is England...

8) I don't like melons...

9) I've owned a Ford Pinto, a Mercury LN7, a Pontiac Fiero, an Alfa Milano, another Alfa (164), a FordExplorer Sport, another Ford Explorer Sport, and now a Nissan Xterra...

10) Khyra is the bestest daughter I khould ask fur (HEY, I THINK KHYRA SNUCK IN HERE)!
I'll tag any other Blog Moms that would like to do this one!
******
Speaking of moms...here is mine...with my dad...my brother Steve...
This is Auntie Di's first visit to the beach (Myrtle Beach to be exact) in the summer of 1970...of course, she didn't make her entrance until October 28th of that year!
With Diane and Jim coming to town, Khyra and I might not get to comment on everyone's blogs BUT we WILL be reading them!
Of course, tomorrow is WALKIN' WEDNESDAY so Khyra will be back then!

P.S. Khyra wanted me to mention Eduardo The Snuggle Puggle's PAW PLACEMENT Category!

Princess Eva and Brice said...

At least you are guaranteed that your mom will never forget your gotcha day (momma doesn't remember mine)!

Have fun with Auntie Di! Will she be on next week's WW?

Princess Eva

p.s. Momma is still snickering but then she has heard a few nun stories.

Cloud the Wonder Dog said...

Khyra, I don't know if Auntie Di will be impressed by your paw khrossing, but I sure am!!! :-)

Luv,
Cloud

pughy said...

Khyra your Auntie Di cant fail to be impressed with all your moves, you are one cool woofie. Thanks to your mum for showing and telling her life to us, its so good to learn about the mums.

Where did your mum go in England? I wonder was it close to us.

Hugs GJ xx

Khyra, who could resist you? Thanks to your mom for sharing all that fun stuff with us.

Scout and Freyja said...

We think that you have some really good looks! We think that they will go a long way to get you what you want!

chicamom85 said...

Khyra, the paw placement is outstanding as usual. You are so graceful and beautiful. How could anyone resist you. Have fun with your auntie. I bet you are excited.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Mango said...

Miss Khyra,

It got totally hot here too the past few days. I don't feel like doing anything. Yuck.

Momma got some new soaps for herself out yesterday called Irish Spring and she was singing in the wet room, "When you wash yourself using Irish Spring it's like taking a shower in Ireland."

Gosh, I hope the windows were shut. Anyway, she said since your DOH is totally ancient that she would know that song too.

Whatever.

Slobbers,
Mango

Cheyenne -Millie said...

Khyra, those are lovely photos of you! Look at those eyes!! Those are interesting facts about your mom!!

Monty says hi back!

The Thundering Herd said...

Khyra, you are impressive just being you.

Since you mom will always remember your gotcha day, you are away of us here - evidenced by the Qannik oops of just the other day. In fact, our human is currently worried that he is missing some pup else and needs to check dates today.

P.S. - Our hu-dad, since he grew up in Charlotte, spent much of his play time at Myrtle Beach. He laughed at the pictures because it is very very hard to find undeveloped beach like that there.

Alasandra said...

Khyra just be your lovely self and Auntie Di will be plenty impressed. You are terrific. ~S,S,C & F

Suzuki said...

I LOVE the crossed paws! I wish I could have done that fur Eduardo's contest :)
Big licks to you

The OP Pack said...

Nice sharing, we learned a few things about the Mom. And was she behind the flashy box in those pics from the 70s? We hope Auntie Di has a wonderful visit and that the weather cooperates.

woos, the OP Pack

Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

How nice to hear some things about your Mom - we might have to have our Mom do that one.

We can't imagine why Auntie Di would want to come from sweltering Phoenix to cool PA. She'll need a sweater for sure while she's there.

XOXO
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

PS - we thought of your floofiness last night when Mom was stripping Java - piles of floof on the ground!!

Parker said...

Khyra - your Mom is very cool!

We are all practicing crossing our paws the way you do because humans seem to go all mushy when they see that.

Happy birthday to your human who our human says is a mere child.

Rachel said...

Khyra, you ask your Mom to get you some melon... any kind. I know she doesn't like it, but you might. And if you don't like it, the pack and I will take your leftovers!

Junior and Orion said...

We think (and yes, we do have brains) you should go with the "deep pondering look" for Auntie Di.

Meowm says Pinto's are death traps and your Mom is very lucky to have survived owning one!

Ludo van Doggy said...

Great tag from your Mom!
As always, perfect paw placement!
~lickies, Ludo

Khyra, your beauty is all you need to impress your Auntie Di!

She's going to freeze once she leaves the oven she's living in in AZ! Hope you have a great visit with her!

The facts about your mom were furry interesting!

Bijou said...

Hi Khyra,

Chef ·˙ ۛ ♥ said...

Khyra sweetie - you are too gorgeous for words with your paws krossed like that. Your Auntie Di is going to be totally beguiled! I think she's going to like your weather too!

I'm going to post about the Boxer rescue next week. Thanks for letting me know about it.

Tell your moms that it's a good thing she didn't become a dentist people would like going to. No such thing, I don't think.

xoxoxo

NORWOOD UNLEASHED said...

Hi khyra

I know so much more about mom... except does she like to polka? In parts of PA, I know it's a favorite. I hope you take Auntie Di on a Wed Walkie and capture it...

Hi, Khyra -

Your Auntie Di has the same birthday as Mama (Oct. 28th) and the weird thing is that Mama's name is Dianne.

Love -
