Thankful Thinking Thoughtful Thursday

Furst off, today is the day to head ovFUR to Amy's House of Snakhks and leave a khomment to help benefit khats in need!!! She's selekhted the shelter where Floyd had been hanging out until he khame into Amy's life. Floyd is now at The Rainbow Bridge being chased by our pals waiting there fur us!
This is a purry special celebration fur Virgil but woo will see THAT on their blog!
I'm thankful my sun is bakhk!
It rained much of Tuesday BUT it khleared and dried sufficiently fur a walk Tuesday evening
As Mom put this post together, this was what I was doing
In fakhkt, THAT is almost exakhtly the pose I'm in right now as she looks out the window at me
This was how the morning started out after I khame bakhk in from my Nature Khall - I watched as she tried to find 'it'
It was in the khorner of our bedroom just outside her bathroom -that's two days in a row I made her do the steps to see where I had 'buried' it! One of these days I'm hoping she'll do a slideshow or something of the assorted pikhs she's been khollekhting of my 'places to leave 'em until she finds 'em and flashie beasts them to share with woo prior to my khonsuming them'
We had various birds visit yesterday - the khardinals were around a good bit - at one point we even had two males working out the details of who's yard it was!
This pikh was from after my lilakh photoshoot
Flowering Cherry
Now to thank my furiends and share the awards pawed my way in the past week:

From the furry lovely Mayzie and the very handsome Toby - this link fur Toby is NOT the one where he pawed the award onto me. It is the one where he says his goodbye's to us fur he's moved on to the next portion of his training - what a pawesome thing he'll be doing AND even more pawesome is what his raiser does! She's getting a new puppy sooner than she expekhted so we'll get to see him learn all the khool stuff like Toby did!
We wish woo well Toby! You are going to make some human FURRY happy!
This one is fur Merdie and me! We got this from a GReat Golden Lady and her hu-dad!
They live in the same oven as Auntie Di does (Phoenix)

This one is from the one and only original Sonic as woo khan see!

Thank woo evFURRYone fur sharing these pawesome awards with us!

Have a great Thursday!

See woo here tomorrow fur more of me and more of Mom's skEYEs and stuff!

You and your bones! Never fail to make us smile.

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

That cherry tree is just awesome. We wud love to climb it.

The Thundering Herd said...

That laying in the sunshine thing is almost as good as laying in the snow. The hu-dad says Kodiak is going to bake his brain if he lays in the sun any more.

Mango said...

This is the best time of year for sure. Lots of sun but not super hot and all the pretty flowers come out. I am loving it just like you.



Oh my goodness, fantastic flower pics. Mommy just loves the cherry blossoms.

You have such a pretty yard made even more special by you laying around in it. We don't have cardinals down here.

Congrats on your well deserved awards! Great pics!

Kari in WeHo said...

sun and cherry blossoms? you are so lucky

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Hi Khyra!! First thanks for telling everyone about our commentathon - we hope to get a lot of comments!! We are very excited!

And congrats on the awards - you totally deserve them all and more!

We love the pics of you in the sun - and the cherry blossoms are so pretty. We don't have those here - we have flowering trees but not that type. It really is finally spring!!

Oh, I know your mom is a transport goddess - Love and Hisses is looking for someone to help with a dog - it isn't your area but if she knows of someone they could contact can you ask her to let them know. I know there are groups like your moms but have no idea how to tell them to even find one (I did tell them that maybe they could stop by here to see if your mom knew what to do to contact a group up there). It is in their post I know it is probably a longshot but I thought your mom would know at least what to do to find a group who might help (and I tried a google search with pet transport - it brought up a lot of designer dog taxi's but it did know my area since I am logged in, so maybe that is why).

LizzyBean said...

Congrats on the well-deserved awards! The cherry blossoms are just stunning and I am jealous that you will be enjoying the scent of lilac; there is apparently some new hybrids bred for southern climates and I am dying to get one. I adore lilacs! Have a lovely day, friends!

Mack and Mia said...

Hi, I put up a Toby link myself today, since I am both very sad and very happy for him... I love your award from Sonic because he did such a wonderful job explaining it. One of these days, I will have a response to Khyra's milk bone hiding... ;)

JackDaddy said...

You always get so many comments!! :) I feel bad about adding more cause you have so many to read already! :)

But then by telling you that I feel bad, I'm adding another comment to make you read, so it's just a vicious circle! :)

So don't read this comment! :)

Beautiful cherry blossoms. We have a tree in our yard but it is well past the flowering stage. Thanks forhelping The House of C-A-T-S with their commentathon. It is always so cool when all the bloggers pull together to do something special for the less fortunate. You look beautiful in the sunshine. How come you aren't blowing coat like the rest of us Northern breeds? Congrats on your very deserved awards.
