Walkin' Wednesday 2009 PLUS SOME

Merdie and I will show you our furry exciting TuesdayMerdie was just hanging out in from of the sofa in the Furamily Room
Then moved to the porch with the khool khangaroo Ginger Jasper had sent me!

Mom was working on waking up and chekhking our Googlie Readerie thingie when
There was a pop and all went dark save fur the laptop and the khrakhkberry
We noticed the utility pole at the NW edge of the yard was flaming!
Mom khalled MetEd whilst The Doggy Nanny khalled 9-1-1

They had to monitor it
More monitoring
The street in front of the house
I was helping. I akhtually greeted each of them pawsonally with Siberian khysses (and told them to please help us get power bakhk ASAP so my mom didn't start twitching)
More flames!
I made the pussywillow bush my khommand post
Kept them in my sights
Met Ed arrived (there were three trukhks by the time it was all said and done)
Then the fun began as they had to evaluate the situation. I wonder if they played Rokhk, Paper, Scissors to see which of them got to khlimb up there!
Way up there
Having determined they had the situation under khontrol, I went to nap
So did Merdie
Mom kept her eyes on 'em
When I heard her shrieks of WAHOO we have The Internet bakhk, I khame down and went to khall this job khomplete!

Mom shot a short video of some of the fun - THAT IS HERE!!! - please keep in mind when she khaptured some of the goings on in the yard, we had NOOOOO idea how long it would take to restore the power!


However will our furiends be able to make it without their WALKIN' WEDNESDAY fix?!? Well, fear not, HERE IT IS!!!


Khyra and Merdie

PeeEssWoo: Mom and I had just started to visit the Tuesday blogs when we lost power so we are truly we've said before, we'll visit but we might not get the opportunity to leave khomments...and we SOOO hope woo understand!

We'll see woo here tomorrow fur our THANSKGIVING post!

Tanuki Maxx said...

Hello hello!

jan said...

That was scary. My humans get hysterikhal when the electrikh goes out. Good thing you were there to supervise until they got it under khontrol.

JackDaddy said...

That's good that it got fixed so quickly. I understand how it is when the Internets is broken!!

Inigo Flufflebum and d'Artagnan Rumblepurr said...

How exciting, we think you're a hero puppy, if it wasn't for you there wouldn't be the internet!

Teddy Bear said...

What a fun day! I'm so glad that the flames were under control and that you have internet connection again. I bet the firemen all love you and Merdie!

chicamom85 said...

Oh my what a lot of excitement. I am glad you are all safe and kept your distance. You and Merdie look so cute and snuggly napping. I don't even want to think of how my Mommy would react to no puter. It scares me. I am glad it got fixed so fast. We can't miss our Walking Wednesday with Khyra.

Happy Thanksgiving

Bae Bae said...

Suka said...

hey Khyra,

I am not a fan of flames so I was worried about you and your mom when I saw the flaming pics, but glad to know all is well! I can see why you needed a nap - manning that command post must have been nerve wracking. A job well done, though!

You and Merdie sure looked nice on your walk! You both have lovely tails. And the shadow Khyra was cool.


Holly and Khady said...

I wonder if it was one of those stupid squirrels that got zapped and caused your loss of power?

Good job keeping an eye on them!! I see your good tax dollars at use with your fire dept there!


Martha and Bailey said...

Hi Khyra, what an exciting day - thank dogness you were there to snoopervise the whole thing and greet the firemen!
Our mum wanted to know if there were any good looking firemen.......NO mum you can't type that!!!!!
We were very jealous of your walk in the fifties AND in shorts!!!!
Have we mentioned torrential rain to you?
love and kisses

Wow! A flaming start to the day! It sounds like you had the situation well under control, Khyra! We're glad you have your power back.

Hi Merdie!


Maggie and Mitch said...

Wow! What excitement you had at your house, Khyra! We're glad you got your power back on! Our mom is lost without her computer too! Isn't that called an addiction?! hummmmmmm

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

Mango said...

That was so exciting! I bet those worker guys had lots of stories to tell their pals back at camp.

I loved your walkie movie. Double FT!


Ricky the Sheltie said...

Oh my - flames and everything! How scary! Good thing your mom had you to monitor the situation! Glad the power guys were able to get the electricity back on!

The Thundering Herd said...

Wow - quite the excitement. Firemen in your yard and then lots of power trucks. Glad you were there to greet and help them.

One quirk of living in the mountains is that we do lose power fairly often. You just live with it. But since we use Verizon Wireless for internet, we keep on plugging.

All you Facebook doggies - sigh, we just don't have time to do that but the temptation is so high.

The OP Pack said...

Wow, that made for a lot of excitement at your place, Khyra. It had to have been caused by those pesky squirrels trying to derail you from keeping up with all your blogs. We are so glad it was resolved fairly quickly so you and Mom could get back on track.

Great walking video, you both look so good. That fluffy tail keeps getting fluffier with the thickening up for the cold weather and Miss Merdie is just beautiful in her golden-ness.

Hope you keep your power today, we always the power of your paw.

Woos, the OP Pack

Gus said...

I am sure that your supervision and motivation techniques got the job done quickly.


Gus, Louie and Callie said...

We are sure glad that you kept your eyes on all those men. Ya the power is back..

Big Sloppy Kisses

Bob said...

Wow; So much excitement, we are glad that you supervised and made sure the repairs were done quickly.

We hope you and Merdie rest up so you will have a fun Thanksgiving.

Frankie Furter said...

I think it was a squirrel. Hope he got singed in the process. Properly cooked they are quite good to eat. It would serve the rascal right.
Glad that they got it fixed. We would have all had our tails in a twitch without your Walkin' Wed. post.
Happy Turkey Day.

Piappies World said...

Hi there Khyra,

The flames were scary but you sure did a good job at monitoring and ensuring the safety of your family and neighbors. That's a tough task to get everyone organized and you did well.

Wow Khyra, you were brave to hang out so close the dangerous action. I can't believe they took a hose to a electrical pole. ?duh? Where are you on facebook? Breeze has a fan page. You can click on the link on our blog. Happy Thanksgiving!

YD, sometimes with Samantha and June said...

A little supervision from the Khyra is always best!
That's pretty scary that it's quite close to the house but good thing no one was hurt.
Have a great Thanksgiving! Are you going to supervise the humans making turkey?

Sam & June

Mochi and Mommy said...

Wow, how exciting! I would have loved to watch them! I could watch people all day! :)

At least your naps were not interrupted!

Great WW video! I just love all the tail action!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Junior and Orion said...

Goodness!!! What excitement you had! Fire, darkness, visitors!!! Wow! We are glad your power got returned quickly!

dewdana said...

wow that day definitely would require a nap or two from all the excitement... Moose does not like fire at all so he would have been hiding! You were very brave!

JD and Max said...

Hi Khrya - wow, what an exciting day with flames and big fire trucks and people milling everywhere. Thank goodness you were around to supervise - we're glad you got the computer thingy back online. Big schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

I just know those guys loved your kisses!

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

That certainly was an exciting adventure right in your own yard. Did you ever find out what happened? Good thing your mom was home to call for the help to come.
Happy Thanksgiving to you, your family, and friends.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Khyra!
I know about not having power in my house! There is one of those things right in front of my house that is the one that makes BOOOM! very often!
Glad everything is in order now!
Kisses and hugs

Samantha said...

Oh wow! That was surely quite the adventure! The flames thing is quite scary to us and we are glad everybody showed up to deal with the issues at hand. Sawry it took so long for the power to come back, but Khyra - you did a great job snoopervising. I would have barked and barked. You are a very good girl. And Merdie? Major kisses to you and Khyra!
Huggers and a Happy Thanksgiving!
