Thankful Thinking Thoughtful Thursday

I spent some time thinking and khrossing (BIGIFY TO CHEKHK OUT THE PAW-WORK!)
and then some time chillin' on my patio with the breeze fluffing my pantyloons! It was BEAWOOTIFUL! The human real feel temp was 9F's/almost -13C's! It was one of those days where Mom khontemplates having a meter at the door to keep a running log of how long I was outside during the entire day!
Time to share two awards I got early last week
My pal Sakura the blue eyed KHAT pawed this my way
and I got these tasty buns
from a new pal Piti from Romania!
Once again more proof the blogging khommunity is worldwide!
We have such great opportunities to learn more about other khanine/khat/khritter khultures that aren't khlose to our own pawsonal bakhkyards!

Please help yourselves to any of these awards woo would like!

Of khourse, the buns look mighty tasty!

When woo visit Piti, make sure woo chekhk out the Harrod's Fashion show!

I so hope the khanines were properly khompensated!!!

Speaking of tasty
Mom and I got these furry khool pressies from two special GR GiRls!
Mom snagged this pikh whilst I was outside so as to NOT get my drooler started fur these were to be shared with MERDIE!
(the khook sokhks are to keep Mom's paws warm)
So when Merdie and her peoples FINALLY got to khome over fur khristmas pressie time, we got to khrakhk open the khan
Ready to LEAP with anticipation!
Aunt Shannon trying to help Mom and The Flashie Beastie
(Mom furst tried it on her own...that so did NOT work fur we were BOTH jumping out of our fur to get these yummy nom noms)
Air Khyra and Merdie The Rokhk (Star)
Please please please NOW!
Merdie ate hers
I was khleaning up evFURRY khrumb I khould find!
Mom divided up the bounty and sent Merdie home with some
Don't they look sooooo tasty?
(Mom says they were khwite yummy too...something about making sure I would like them...what's with THAT?)
TANK WOO Sammie and Sierra Rose!!! It was sooooo furry pawesome of woo to share some treats with both of us!
(Akhtually, the pikhs of Merdie Tuesday's post were the afterglow of her yummy tummy)
Time to start thinking about the new year
and think bakhk on the one about to end

We've lost too many furiends but the cirkhle of life khontinues in that we've made many new ones too!

Mom hit the adult beverage store on Tuesday (I ROTE'd with her) so we'll be set to PAWTY IN 2010 with our pals on The DWB!

We hope to snoof woo there!



PeeEssWoo: Some of woo khommented on hearing my mom tell the mail kharrier about Merdie's biskhuits! WELL, since my snooter is always on to the good stuff, The Doggy Nanny had to stash Merdies's pressie on an upper shelf in the pantry until Merdie khould khome ovFUR fur them. Merdie's peoples expekhted to be ovFUR Saturday night so The Doggy Nanny got their stuff out. They ran out of time that night and didn't make it.

WELL, when Mom left fur the run to get Kota and Isis, The Doggy Nanny went upstairs fur a bit and furgot Merdie's pressie was now unattended. I managed to khonsume just about the entire pakhkage of them (it was almost the size of a khoffee khan). When Mom got bakhk, she noticed a few on the khounter but didn't know why they were there until The Doggy Nanny spilled the beans on me! Mom knew I would be full bekhause that was a lot of stuff fur me and only gave me a bit of my Khalifurnia Naturals L&R - which I left!

The Doggy Nanny had given me the same pressie so I pawnated it to Merdie and told her I was sorry fur eating hers!

ocmist said...

No one deserves Awards more than you and your Mom, Khyra! Your blog is always interesting and so helpful and thoughtful toward others too! Of course, you probably had guessed what you were going to get and had just sort of "borrowed" the ones for Merdie, knowing you were going to replace them, right? Sure... THAT was it! OC and the CCC

Piti said...

Great photos of you and Merdie getting your cookies (which looked fantastic).

Liked hearing about you taking some from the counter as well - nice to know I'm not the only dog that will take something that smells so good!

The OP Pack said...

Doesn't your Mom know that all that fresh cold air makes a girl hungry? How nice of Sammie and Sierra Rose to send you those tasty treats!!!

2009 was a sad one for many of us in many ways but we also have a lot to be thankful for, and one of those things is being able to share the good and the bad with wonderful furiends and friends like you and your Mom.

Woos and Happy New Year, Phantom and Thunder

Mango said...

Momma and Master are going to an old folk's New Year's Eve party. They toast in the new year around 10PM and then all go home to nap. Hopefully mine will remember (for once) to check out the DWB party when she gets home.


Martha and Bailey said...

Love ya lots!

Gus said...

Khyra, we would never have guessed you are a counter surfer! But we're glad you shared your pressies with Merdie. After eating hers, of course.


KB said...

You have received so many goodies for Christmas Khyra! You're a very popular girl, and for good reason!!!

My dogs are very good at sniffing out which Christmas packages contain food. They obsess over those ones and not the others. It makes me think that they could be some kind of sniffing dog at the airport. In Australia years ago, they had dogs checking for whether anyone was carrying fruit. I had an apple, and went to tell the dog handler. The handler asked me to put it back in my bag and act normal while standing in the customs line, so that his dog could practice. Sure 'nuff, the dog was onto it in a second!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Frankie Furter said...

Awwww sweet treats and awards. Both are lovely.
As for "helping yourself" I think that is a very important skill. It saves wear and tear on the two leggers. I hope they appreciated you ability. hehehe
The pics of you and Merdie catching some air...and snacks are just grrrreat.
I hope you get some snow to go with those temps..
May the New Year bring many more good things to you and your two leggers. You all certainly deserve the very best of everything. I'm just sayin'.

Looks like you and Aunt Shannon are dancing in one of the shots!!!

BeadedTail said...

Lovely cross paws technique again Khyra! Congrats on your awards! Those doggy treats looked yummy and we loved how you and Merdie were so patiently waiting for them! We bet you thought those were your treats and Merdie's were the other ones anyway right. You wouldn't have eaten them if you'd known they were for Merdie so it was all a misunderstanding!

Have a Happy New Year!

Sam said...

You stole treats?! Marge is proud. :)

Have a Happy Happy Happy New Year, Khyra! We're grateful to have met you guys this year, and look forward to seeing you again in 2010.
