Thankful Thinking Thoughtful Thursday

So much to share - so much to be TTT about!
The nice lady that helped give Sam a ride to freedom last Saturday shared some pikhs on Monday
This was Carla's furst transport - and she's hooked! Plus, she enjoyed seeing the pikhs/videos shared by the others -
Mom shared a few of her Brittany special transport blog posts - inkhluding the one with the pawesome video Brandy's Foster Mom Jenn had put on YouTube
When she sent the pikhs she inkhluded this message:
Hi everyone! I managed to snap 3 pics of Sam on Saturday while we were stopped for a stoplight in Eden, NC.He had sat up in the seat to get a good sniff of all the smells from the fast food restaurants!

I had gotten this from Sierra-Dog in AZ sometime ago but since her mom was away in Costa Rica,
I waited to share two videos Mom khaptured of me playing with it!
Since Mom had given it to me when Merdie was here at Khamp Khyra, woo will see Merdie in the videos too!
Thank Woo Sierra-Dog! It will be my lukhky toy this year fur THE PHILLIES!!!

My morning DN ritual
Khyss Time!
Thinking how wrong it is that it was almost 90 degrees F/32 degrees C in early April ;

Thinking how wrong it was that Samantha and June had to post these great pikhs and thoughts;

Thinking how khool it is that Buddy's new dad sent the transport drivers this note on Monday:

Thank you all so much for bringing buddy all the way from NC on Easter Sunday no less. I couldn't be happier, buddy is one of a kind, and deserves the best, and is what I'm gonna give him. Couldn't have made this possible without all of you, you guys are amazing. Buddy is so amazing really a blessing. Thanks again anyone who wants pictures along the way of his new home living feel free to let me know, or if there's anything I can help with.
Your friends, Buddy and Matt
Thinking how AWESOME and PAWESOME Ben is fur his special posts he did to celebrate his happy life!

AND how GReat it was that thanks to all of WOO, we did it!!!
The sour cherry blossoms from the tree in the yard
A shot from Tuesday's after dinner walk
Another shot looking down the street during that walk - when we walked earlier in the day, it was snowing blossoms - Mom almost tried fur a video but she wasn't sure it would really khonvey the experience! Woo khan see how they've already khollekhted along the street/lawn areas
We've got more pikhs to share - Mom hopes to have 'em uploaded into Photobukhkets fur FrEYEday!

Happy TTT Thursday All!

I know what you mean about the high temps this early. Of the 8 days in this month, It has been 80+ degrees here 6 of them. 5 days have broken all time records. Strange.
Love the morning ritual with the DN.

Mack said...

Mom is in luv with Sam's freckles!!

What beautiful sights you have on your walk Miss Khyra. But that TEMP?? What's a sibey to do????

Gus said...

mmmmmm..we love that picture of your walkie area with all the trees in bloom. We are sorry that it got too warm sooo fast, but wanted to tell you that the storm here last night pushed the temps WAY back down, so we gave it a shove in your general direction while we were on walkies this am.


houndstooth said...

Those cherry blossom pictures are awesome!

I think Buddy ended up with a great dad! It sounds like his fluffy tail actually helped him to get to a better place than he was before.

That baseball is going to get a workout, I think!


Kira The BeaWootiful said...

Wooos Khyra! Love the bed picture the most... as always, great stories and links to go to, we always spend the most time going back and forth on your blog :)~
It is cooler here than there, and we will be getting cooler this weekend too, back down in the 70's.... Have Mom turn on the a/c fur woo!

We are amazed at the temperatures you have been having! It's sunny here but still sweater weather!

The cherry trees look so beautiful! Ours have not yet started to bloom. We have one fruit tree, one late-blooming non-fruit Japanese tree, and a bunch of wild cherry trees.

Great toy, Khyra!


Stella said...

Hey Khyra!

I think its time to call another two week session of Khamp Khrya and get Merdie back for the Spring Ball Playing tryouts. Explain how important this is to her beans and they would probably go along with it!

Laughing myself silly in Anchorage... in Video One when you squeeze the toy Halle came RUNNING to come and join the fun. Then when you did it again she ran back into the kitchen. HILARIOUS! She was sooooo excited to play with Khyra and Merdie. I had to explain to her that it was only on the laptop..... :( So many wonderful things to be thankful for this Thursday. Lovely post! So happy for Buddy!!!
