Thanking Thinking Thoughtful Thursday

These were all taken whilst I was awaiting Khousin Merdie's return to Khamp Khyra
Here's her furst pikh
Our furst walk
Her furst khool down
Khwite the happy girl

I'm thanking Fate fur allowing me to share this post from LAST AUGUST 19th - today marks the fourth anniversary since Mom furst spotted 'Whitney'

I'm thinking that woo should visit Bocci and Tank's Blogs fur things woo khan do fur THIS SATURDAY'S special 'day' - I had Mom pikhkup two 14# boxes of biskhuits fur 'my' B&B - one fur large khanines and one fur smaller breeds -

As soon as I saw this post on Tuesday, I KNEW I'd be sharing it here today - please take a few minutes to watch the video about Dolly - she's furry special in many many ways - and whilst you are there on Walkin' The Bark Rescue's Blog, please be sure to chekhk out the pawesome work they do and have done - especially with a special pup named POPEYE! ! !

The BIG BIG news of the day was the announcement late Wednesday morning that CHARGES WERE GOING TO BE FILED IN BEAR-BEAR'S MURDER!!!!!!!

Here are assorted links to the khoverage

ONE - Channel 11 News

TWO - The Baltimore Sun Weblog

THREE - from The Eye on Annapolis site

FOUR - The Baltimore Sun artikhle

The enkhouraging part of this is the pawtential fur stiffer penalties going furward - the Anne Arundel County Executive - John Leopold - has akhtually been furry driven to make a difFURence - he is an admitted 'dog person' - and pushed to get the investigation reopened after it was initially khlosed with no plans to file anything -

We were also furry sad to see our feline khounterparts had khwite a rough few days with losses amongst their pride - I've inkhluded a link to JFF'S post about them

And one fur Fat Eric from Milo and Alfie

Again, thanks fur the patience with our visits/non-visits - we are so hopeful things will be 'normal' again soon -


Khyra and Khousin Merdie

We were so glad when we read the news about the shooter of Bear Bear. Never seemed right to anyone that he could get away without any investigation.

We read about Bear-Bear and intended to post a link. But then we read about Luxor's death and ... forgot. We're glad Bear-Bear's death is being taken seriously.

Merdie, always with the frog legs..

Glad she stopped by for a visit. You were looking a little bit sleepy while you waited for her!

Thank goodness for the charges being filed against Bear's killer.

KT and Lady said...

We are happy to see that the heat is being turned up on Bear Bear's killer. No way he should disappear into the dark corner of the NRA and law enforcement protective cocoon and not answer for the incredibly dumb thing he did.

Aksharaa said...

we are very glad Khyra to hear that the case is getting looked at again. Bear Bear deserves Justice.
Loved your pictures as usual.

Miss Khyra.....Happy 4th Gotchaversary!!!!!!!! We are very glad you got Gotcha'd!

We were very pleased to see that chrages are being made for Bear-Bears death. Hopefully this will cause a wider spread message and all humans in the same type of position will learn that deadly force is not necessary!

You and Merdie look like you are having a grand time together.

We are going to see what Meowm can do about donating something this Saturday.

We will be watching Dolly's video when Mewom gets home...we can't wait to see this special woofie.

Thanks for your kind comments and posts about the wonderful kitties we lost yesterday. We know you woofies understand how it feels.
