Tuesday Telling

I saw this ad in the newspaper and had Mom send a pikh to Frankie fur me - I thought he might want to skhhedule a trip to PA fur more snowmen - although I did wonder what parts the 40% would be off of? This place is less than five miles from here - I told him I khould meet him there in a flash - I thought he might want to skhore some bonus points with his mom by adding more snow khreatures but he said after 2-1/2 days of putting them away, even she was ready to make them 100% off!
And 'snow' Sammy and I wait
At least the temps were more khonsistent with Winter -
About 25 of my F skhale
-4 in the C world

We saw this on another blog Monday morning - akhtually a blog from the great state of Eva, Brice, and STELLA - but this one has greyhounds and great pikhs!!!

Last Wednesday we enkhountered this handsome fella
Sorry it is blurry - the flashie beast operator did better after this one but since he was so khute we've inkhluded it anyway
Meet Shep - he's a guide dog in training -
I furget her name - she and her Dachsie sibling live on the khorner right akhross from The Khlub entrance - the nice lady with Shep khomes and walks them during the day whilst their pawrents are at work
Shep is the 18th pup she's raised - she wasn't khrazy about his name either but - she had asked her khlients if she khould bring him along so he khould get some socialisation with other pups and peeps
Late Sunday evening, we got pikhs from Jed's furever family - here he is with his dad
And the new ladies in his life

Happy, eh???

Have a great Tuesday!

See woo tomorrow fur THAT day of the month!

What a wonderful beginning to a wonderful story. He's bootiful!!

Kari in WeHo said...

Keep Frankies mom away from that store!


houndstooth said...

Morgan says that Shep is going to grow up and be one handsome dude!

Our snow has mostly melted away. You might like the ice that we have left, though! We hope you get some snow soon!


Noah the Airedale said...

Ahhh Shep is a cutie and Jed looks like he's getting lots of love. That's how it should be.

JackDaddy said...

That is one cute puppy!

d'Artagnan Rumblepurr said...

How can you STILL not have snow? I been doing all kinds of snowdances!!

Amy / Layla the Malamute said...

Very cool!

When we raised our seeing eye puppy, his name was Artic (ironic, right?). They said that all the pups in each litter have names beginning with the same letter, so all the pups in Shep's litter would have S-names. Then the blind person can re-name them whatever they want.

One day I'd like to be a puppy raiser again, but Layla doesn't like the idea much.

Suka said...

hey Khyra,

Jed is adorable! And so are his humans! A beautiful pup for a beautiful family! I love happy endings. And they all look so happy with Jed!

Shep is a beauty! Good luck to him!

Khyra, how can there be Snowmen if there has been no snow?! Regardless, you should buy those snowmen and then leave them in the sun so they melt in your yard, then you will have snow!!


Teddy Bear said...

It's always fun meeting new friends.:) We're glad the temps have gone down for you...now if only the white stuff would come.:)

Priscilla said...

Your place always seems bright and sunny!!! Something has really gone wrong I guess : )
Shep is definitely adorable!!! Keep an eye on him...

Pepsi Bum said...

-4 C and still no snow? I wonder where it all went, hm...

And Shep is a real cutie!


Mango said...

Huh? I can earn dollars selling snowmans on the internet? Who knew? I am going to box some up and start shipping them out. Maybe even get my own eBay. Yuh.


Maggie and Mitch said...

We are just loving the pictures of Jed and his new family! It's making us all smile very broadly here!

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

You know, my furst thought be that Frankie smuggled his mom's snowmans from Ohaioh to Pencilvania and is trying to sell them off cheap afore she notices...

Angus Mhor said...

Frankie Furter said...

Shep is a really cute puppy! We bet he grows up to be handsome!! Love the other pictures too!! Lots of love, Holly and mom

Pippa said...

We fell in love with Shep. What a super dog.


giantspeckledchihuahua said...

Aw! it's wonderful to see pictures of jed's family looking so thrilled with him!

Please be sure to find a reputable delivery service for shipping those snowmen. If I wake up and find snowmen out front I'm sure it will push me right over the edge!

Happy tails!
Stumpy and me

Anna the GSD said...

I don't want to sound like a cougar, but Shep is pretty darn cute!!

I can't believe you still have no snows! We're going to have to write a letter to someone!

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan and Bibi-Chan said...

Still nothing, eh Khyra?! We had a very light dusting last night, so light it was almost invisible. They are talking about a few flakes here and there tomorrow. Who knows?

That's a serious pair of Frootbats on that pup!


BeadedTail said...

Khyra, one day that snow will come!

Shep is a cutie! We love seeing Jed with his happy family! We love happy endings!

Anonymous said...

We hope you get some snow SOON, Khyra! Shep sure is a cutie! And her 18th dog she's raised? She must have been doing this for a while. Good for her!

Elyse and Riley

Remington said...

I bet Frankie's mommy will run to THAT sale! Shep is really cool!

Ginger Jasper said...

Lovely happy pictures today and great to see a happy woofie in a forever home. Hope you get some snow soon Khyra.Hugs GJ xx

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Khyra, is this lack of snow the equivalent of coal in your stocking? We just can't figure out why you're being passed by this year.

Anonymous said...

Ohmidogness! Cuteness overload!

I bet Frankie could take care of that 40% off thing with his mom's snowmans just by using his teethies!

Wiggles & Wags,

Sally said...

Shepard is adorable.
What a wonderful story.

Nice woooh

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Oh what wonderful friends you have and wonderful home Jed has...

Huffle Mawson said...

I'm thinking you need to move to somewhere with more snow!

Junior and Orion said...

What a cute woofie Shep is. And he is training for a very noble profession!

And what a wonderful home for Jed.

We are going to have to have a talk with the snow gods for you....this is just wrong!

Butchy, Katie, Ruby, Sylvester, Scuby, Hootie, Zeek said...

Awwwwh, such cute doggies! Check out the snow we dropped off at your house on our bloggie, hehehehe! We're getting more snow here tomorrow.

Sagira said...

Ruh roh...bet Frankie will be on the way for that sale!

I love the furever pictures. SO makes it worth it when you send the end results of all this rescue work. :)

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Jed is a lucky fella, I love happy-ending story!
Happy New Year dear friend Khyra,
We wish you a good year filled with good love, good health and good laugh.

Thor said...

Shep is cute! It's wonderful to see Jed with his furever family! Happy!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Jed is going to be one happy and pampered boy...as he deserves to be! Shep is a handsome boy when he grows up he is going to have a very important job.

We cannot believe that you still sit, snowless, under your thinking tree. Someone somewhere is STEALING snow that should be yours! Maybe we can do a ChipIn to get you one of those snow making machines that the use at ski places.

Thank you for sending healing energy to my sister, Puff. She is home from her final Heartworm dose at the Vet and now we just believe and hope that in 4 months when she is retested that those icky worms will be gone! We believe that all of your wonderful prayers and woofs have helped saved her life!

Zona said...

Something tells me you might be getting a visit from Frankie's mom before that sale ends!!

Loved the pictures today!!


Cory said...

Shep is so cute and must be a smartypants already if he's studying to be a guide dog.

My Grete woofie is in awe of him. She is only good for guiding our humans to the nearest squirrels!

Don't tell her I told you that.

Holly and Khady said...

Nothing beats the wonderful stories of these pups going to their furever homes!

Oh, and mom said that MN snow song really makes her miss her old home!


Sam said...

I think if Frankie's mom had her way, she'd buy all of the snowmen in the store! Good thing her little dog is there to save her wallet. After all, spending can add up, even when the stuff is on sale! ;)

Lorenza said...

Haa! Even Frankie's mom is glad they are stored now?? That is something!
Shep is adorable!
And Jet sure is loving his new life!
Kisses and hugs

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Shep is so goreous and looks so loving...
I love all these wonderful stories like that of Jed, and the others,,,
it makes hearts feel good.

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

Ooooohhhh, I love the family pictures, and Jed looks like he's just 'melting' everyone's heart, unlike a snowman!!!

Two Schnauzers from New England said...

Hi, Khyra -

Shep is a beautiful dog. We think he is already handsome.

Jed is definitely getting spoiled - with love which is the way it should be. His family looks really happy too.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci
