Tuesday Telling

I ROTE along with Mom on Sunday - she wanted to make a trip to the store to fetch the ingredients fur THIS - she was lukhky enough to find some excellent pakhkages of chikhken too AND some furry nice turkey tenderloins

I bet woo KNOW what I was looking fur
Some of THEM
In fakht, one of them trotted down the driveway as Mom took this pikh
(akhtually, she had taken some of Brofur under his bush befur she got in the Xterra with me)
To prepare woo fur TOMORROW, here are some shots from the LAST time Merdie was here
I was outside under my tree so she started romping with my Sibe stuffie that is her furry favourite toy
Woo've seen her play with it befur
It is soon time to start watching fur our PEREGRINE FALCONS in Harrisburg
Here is a shot Mom khaught MonAM
The page has been updated to reflekht the fakht the 2010 Nesting Season is khommencing! We know Valentine's Day is not too far off so I'm sure he'll be khourted her again this year with some furry fine feathered tweets!
Some of you are new to my blog so we don't know about the khool times ahead as we do our best to follow what we hope will be another produkhtive year on the ledge of The Rachel Carson Building.

It khould be an interesting year fur the female will be entering her eleventh nesting season with her mate entering his sixth. The expekhted lifespan of PF's is about where she is SO paws khrossed things will go well fur her and that there won't be any drama with an younger one attempting to take ovFUR. Some years ago, one of the bird kham lists Mom was following had posts about a fight to the death drama in Cleveland. Some people on that board akhtually got to see it. One person khommented it was one of those things they didn't want to watch BUT they khouldn't NOT watch.

There is place on the PA Site to sign up fur FALCONWIRE alerts with updates as the season progresses.
******Please furgive the khwality (or lakhk thereof in these pikhs) but Mom was on the phone yapping with Summiii's Mummi Sunday afternoonAs it was getting to be the time of the day where the sun starts to set, she noticed one of the neighbourhood Red Tails put down on the top of a tree out on the golf khourse. She took these through the kitchen window whilst yapping.

She took several pikhs not knowing what would be viewable but she hoped SOMETHING would be khool enough to share.

She did walk out to get khloser to the tree- that is where the last shot khame from. But Mr/Ms RT took off and headed towards the pond befure Mom khould get any more shots.



One last thing to tell woo about this week...if woo or someone woo know are in the Dallas TX area, please chekhk out THIS reduced TUTORING programme!

Make sure woo khomebakhk tomorrow fur THAT day of the month!



PeeEssWoo: Mom says the chikhken was yummy! I agree but mine was 'prepared' difFURently - mine WEREN'T! I had my furst wing and drumstikhk au natural! YUMMY AND SO NOM NOM NOMMY!

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan said...

Lots of great pics again today, Khyra! That recipe looks yummy although we're glad you enjoyed yours "au naturel"!

Exciting that it's coming up to peregrine time! All paws crossed for them.


The Thundering Herd said...

We are so used to seeing other canines in your Xterra, we can not actually remember the last time we saw you in it. Glad you got to ROTE!


Miss Khyra
I was waiting for my dinner invite. I sent over my messenger hawk to fetch it from you. Woo didn't get it? I see you and the merdie were pre-occupied.

elbouwii said...

oooh love the Merdie photo's she so sweet :)
we wanna have a merdie !!

El'bow & hauwii

The OP Pack said...

The return of the falcons is soon?? That means spring must be close, right? Mom is excited for that to happen and soon.

Glad you got to take a ride in the xterra AND that you got to taste some yummy chicken. Our Mom had that chicken last week and she really liked it a lot. Especially the buttery sugared lemony grapes.

We can't wait to Miss Merdie tomorrow, we will have to see if we can work on something for that special day too.

Woos, Phantom and Thunder

HOPE said...

Thanks for stopping by...that chicken sounds might yummy for MY tummy too....

I love that Sibe toy....I need a GUS looking toy..mmm? have to tell my mom/person for my B'day coming up! Yep..I'll be 4!

Paws Up!
GUS the Schnauzer!

Ricky the Sheltie said...

Hi Khyra! Mom says she is not up to the ask of trying to teach you a recall :) She's having a hard enough time with me! LOL!

Our peregrine female is hanging out around the ledge and the nest box but I don't know if we told you or not, but our male was found dead one day last year. So far there has been no new male to move into the territory. We keep hoping one will show up soon!

Thor said...

Merdie and your sibe stuffie playing look so cute!
Glad you got CHICKEN!


Fenway said...

Hey Khyra!
Guess what!!!!! When I did this morning's pee 'n poop a red tail hawk flew over and perched on a branch right over my head. Ms. Alpha was betting she was hungry and went inside to bring her some leftover meat for breakfast.

Maybe she was looking for Punxatawnie Phil, that ground hog who does his spring predictions every year on this very day!

I am losing the herding competition (Mango Minster's Khontest) badly and am in last place. But I figure that last is exactly where a true herder needs to be for a round up and crowd control.

Make sure that tree of yours doesn't move!

Frankie Furter said...

Your Chickie dinner sounds delish..
We love all kinds of birds on my hill. Grrreat pics..

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

Kira The BeaWootiful said...

Woooos! You got to have raw chicken! Lucky woo! Yum! I tried to have raw squirrel the other day, but hegot away... bummer. We had a hawk in our backyard the other day, but Scampi barked at it and it flew away, I wonder if he tastes like chicken....

Toby- The dog with a blog said...

Chicken... yum!

Can't wait to follow the birds with you. I love watching spring emerge, but it'll be a while before that happens here.

Glad that Merdie's coming to visit. I love that she has two Sibes to play with!!!!!

The Furry Kids said...

Hi Khyra & Merdie!
It looks like you had a fun trip in the Xterra. But did one of THEM really get in YOUR Xterra? ::shudders::

Your pal,

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Howdy Khyra! We find it interesting that a falcon cam turned into a window to a blood sport. Yikes! We only have seen eagle cams and they are pretty calm. Just mom & dad & eaglets playing around in nests.

bbes tribe said...

It will be interesting to follow the Falcons. We have had some in Seattle that nested on the tall building ledge. Fun to watch. Are you now eating raw chicken, bones and all???
Ernie, Sasha, Chica
PEEESS: Merdie looks soooo cute with the Sibe stuffie. Nice of you to let her play with it.

Kari in WeHo said...

YD, sometimes with Samantha and June said...

Yes, we are sad to hear about Maxdog. We really hope that there is something that can be done. Our thoughts are with him and his family.
So you got some chicken au naturaw? Yummers! Mom has yet to get comfurtable with raw poultry fur us. But she has been giving us au naturaw ground beef from time to time.

Sam & June

Busy Buttons said...

Maybe Merdie was playing with your toy 'cause it looks like you and she missed you when you were outside sitting by your tree. Hope she has a good visit with you!

And chicken is yummy in my tummy!!!

Deetz said...

Dear Khyra
I wanted to stop by and tell you Thank You for your prayers and support and being our furry friend.
It means the world to us!

Remington said...

Don't you just LOVE to go for rides!
Sorry your friend isn't well -- I hope all goes good for him.

Samantha said...

Oh you lucky dog, Khyra!!! Sounds delish! So excited to follow the falcons right from the start this year. Was rather late last year, so looking forward to it all! Yes... have been to see Max and are sad, but sending golden vibes and keeping paws crossed. Thanks for posting.
Big Hugs xo

Mochi and Mommy said...

Oh yes, we all know what tomorrow is! :)

Great to see Merdie having fun with your Sibe stuffie!

How cool that you got to ride along in your Xterra! I love going to the store with mom and dad. One stays in the car with me and the other runs in to grab the groceries.

We are so sad to hear about Max. We went over to visit him.


Benny and Lily said...

we are glad mom found the tenderloins at the store. We kind of thought of chicken legs when we looked at you from behind..BOL...we like the picture of that birdie. Cool Shot
Benny & Lily

Ginger Jasper said...

Oh how quickly the time has gone. It doesn't seem like a minute since the baby birds flew away. Your mum did well to capture that picture from her kitchen. I bet you were excited to get the chicken. I also love chicken when mum is cutting it up, she gives me little bits.. Have agood day.. Hugs GJ x

BeadedTail said...

Khyra, you are so fun to watch in your Xterra that we don't know how your mom keeps her eyes on the road and not on you! We always love to see Merdie too and hope that you are saying she's coming over tomorrow!

Can't wait to watch the falcons again this year!

Twinkietinydog said...

Yo, Khyra, Merdie..life's good I see. Chicken and turkey, Sibe unstuffies...birds are chirping. I'm so happy you guys. I love how I'm including the Merdie in this :) Not my fault. You got us used to her. Merde for Merdie (I'm wishing her more good luck)

Josie said...

Khyra and Merdie, so nice to meet you! Love that you keep watch on the Peregrine Falcons too. My mom is a huge bird watcher (especially raptors and owls when she can see them) As for me, I am a Certified Therapy Dog with my mom. Looks like you have a great life with your mom. One of my bestest friends is a husky mix P.J. who also is a Therapy dog. I have a picture posted of P.J. too on one of my postings (Back to our Hospital Visits) if you want to see her! Hope we can become friends. I already signed up to wish Max good wishes! Woof soon, Much Love

Junior and Orion said...

Were you looking out of hte Xterra for something that rresembles us?

Merdie sure does like your Sibe stuffie....it is fun to see her play with it!

About those birdies...we hope there is no fights to the death.

Merdie likes your stuffie wolfie?
