FrEYEday SkEYEday Free Fur All

Furst off, we need to apologise fur overlooking a furry important event that okhkhured on Thursday:

It was SKHWIRREL APPRECIATION DAY!

I realise I did mention it last year and planned to celebrate it this time around BUT it just snukhk up on us!

Here is the GOOGLE SEARCH fur it - perhaps woo khan find an event happening in your khommunity this weekend!

If not, have one of your furry own!

Now bakhk to our regularly skhheduled post:


It's the MERDIE edition! Hi EvFURRYone!
Look at what I had to put up with when I arrived on Wednesday

Please pardon the slightly blurred pikhs - Khyra's Mom didn't realise we'd be moving soooo fast!


I sought refuge under the khardtable

I got a walk!

I found this on Khyra's Mom's laptop

Looks like she was making sure no one took her fluffy tail!

One of those serious sparrows

Also known as a 'coopers' hawk which must have gotten Khyra's pal AngusMhor since he seems to have disappeared into The Bakhh 40 on Farmville!

Khyra told me about her furiend Ziggy Marley - we wondered if he sent us this furry khool sky?
Here is THIS WEEK'S SLIDESHOW OF SKY PIKHS


Happy Tails to all of WOO this Friday!

Hugz&Khysses,


Khousin Merdie & Khyra

Kari in WeHo said...

that squirrel guy is kinda scary

JackDaddy said...

OOOOO, I saw a hawk yesterday and I think, from looking at your picture and the Google, that it may have been a Cooper's Hawk as well, although a young one. I got within about 5 feet of it, and then it flew away!
Thank you for reminding me! :)
And thank you for sharing Merdie with us again!

Life With Dogs said...

Suka said...

hey Khyra, and hey Merdie!

That looks like a mobster Squirrel so I wouldn't want to mess with him or his crew! I prefer bunnies myself.

You two pups looked like you had great fun playing Hide-n-Seek! Merdie, good hiding place! But next time make sure there is a long tablecloth over the table.

We don't have squirrels in NZ :( Could you please chase one for us?

Tanuki Maxx said...

Hello Khyra and Merdie!

If they'd only come near enough for me to show them how much i appreciate their company..(drooling)

Cheers,
Maxx

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

I lurve squirrels, fried, roasted, or sauteed, or raw, carpacchio style.

But don't like 'em wearing clothes though!

Yes, I surely do appreciate Squirrels, every day!

The OP Pack said...

How nice of Miss Khyra to share her blog today with Miss Merdie! Did you two have fun playing chase around the table? All tails are looking quite floofy there today, nice to see Miss Khyra has her own tail today,no wonder she is guarding it.

Happy Friday, Phantom and Thunder

Hi Merdie, We know that Khyra is enjoying your visit.

We'd appreciate a squirrel - if Mom would cook it up with a few dumplings and gravy.

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Do you like to wrestle as much as a Sibe? I bet with as much time as you spend with Khyra, you're turning into a Sibe in a Golden suit.

The Bumpass Hounds said...

Geez, NICE flat screen; VERY NICE flat screen. We's jealous. Noticed that Merdie wears the same royal purple color and type collar that Jubal does. Can't believe that the world's most famous squirrel hater observes Squirrel Appreciation day unless it's a menu appreciation.

Toby- The dog with a blog said...

Happy Friday!
What pawsome pictures:)

Twinkietinydog said...

Khyra, I don't care what Merdie says, when she's "hiding" from you behind the table, she looks anything but scared. She's a jokester, isn't she?
Glad you two are having a ball!
How's your Auntie Di faring?

Anna the GSD said...

Squirrel appreciation day?!?! Hmm...I'd appreciate if I could get a squirrel in my mouth and give it a "mouth hug", does that count??

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Not squirrel day. What is up with that? Those things antagonize us all the time!!
Great pictures of you 2.. Enjoy your weekend..

Big Sloppy Kisses

The sky is very impressive - I bet Ziggy DID send it!

Have a good weekend, you two!

caboval said...

Oh that sky picture is beautiful! Hugs Joey and Kealani

Sagira said...

Nice pics. We don't have many squirrels around here yet. Our trees are still babies but I am sure once they get big and strong we will start to see some around here.

Ben said...

We appreciate squirrel's so much - that we chase 'em and chase 'em and sometimes - only on the bestest days we CATCH THEM!!!!
Ben
PS - much love Ms. Merdie - us goldie have to stick together, although that Khyra with the tail is pretty hot to trot.

LizzyBean said...

Khyra, looks like you and Merdie had a really good time playing! Alice and Sam have voted to overlook Squirrel Appreciation Day. I have to ask: Did you REALLY swipe the balls at Dennis's Flyball match??!!

Dewey Dewster said...

They celebrate squirrels ???? Appreciate 'em ???? Who does that ???? we need ta follow the link...

Looks like ya and Merdie had a great time....but watch out fer that angry sky....the weather this winter has been brutal.....

Dewey Dewster here....

Stella said...

A squirrel in a Pinstripe suit and a Fedora . . .must be a gangster
rodent. I guess Cloud hasn't seen him yet since I am sure he would have some "words" about it.

Merdie, you look just great. I wish you and Khyra would get to Minniesnowda, we are getting lots of snow this weekend.

Your cousin,
Stella

Mochi and Mommy said...

How nice of you to let Merdie post! Looks like you both missed each other a lot! Fun games, great walk and floofy tails! :)

Have a great weekend!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Hi Khyra
There is nothing better for the soul than your fluffy tail (that you are hiding- so no one can get it) and your moms sky show,
We just went and watched the beauty! Your mom and the magic camera are awsome.
Ya know what Khyra- my squirrel did not have any clothes like your squirrly- I wonder where he got those!
We have red tail hawk- but no coopers.
Merdie is looking beautiful as always and so are you!
love
tweedles
