Toddling and Trotting Tuesday
Mom did ask that I applaud and compliment all those that shared THEIR R's - some veRy veRy good ones - Mom did have some of them go through her feeble biped brain - and some she'd furgotten!
She does admit to having Rikhk Springfield's LP of 'Speak To The Sky' - *SIGH!* All of the other R's shared were kwhite good in her musikh book!
WELL, since soooo many pals seemd SOOOOOOOO bummed there would NOT be a Walkin' Wednesday this week, I asked Mom to make up fur that with this BONUS pawing!
So....without further fanfare, please khlikhk H E R E to get your MFT fix fur the week!
I do have to make sure I get Mom's attention fur my Wednesday post!
AND I may need to file my report from the road on Thursday...I have applied for a tikhket to the VP debate in St Louis, Misery, USA - I hope I'm granted akhcess!

Two shots from the weekend!
Well, the weather didn't khompletely khooperate. Mom had hoped it would be walkable by midday or so BUT the rain showers just didn't want to leave. We DID get a walk after dinner BUT Mom khouldn't really get a good shot at any videos due to have to juggle poo-pikhkup and poo bag toting. Merdie is khwite a machine when it khomes to #2!
WELL, time to turn this over to Mom for her musikh thingie...have a great Monday!
OKAY...time for R-men!
Let's start with two Ryan's: one new and one not so although he does have a new release out soon. R y a n B i n g h a m - the very first time I heard him on xpn.org, I was chekhking the playlist for WHO'S THAT before the song was done. I always use THAT kind of wow fakhtor to define how much I like what I've heard! The other R is R y a n A d a m s with THIS song being one of my favourites.
How about two Robert's? R o b e r t C r a y and R o b e r t P a l m e r . I khould make it three with the inkhlusion of Robert Plant but we touched on him with Led Zeppelin.
Now time for two Richard's: R i c h a r d T h o m p s o n and R i c h a r d M a r x .
Three newer R's: R o c k y V o t o l a t o , R a y L a M o n t a g n e , and R o n S e x s m i t h.
I'll khlose with R o b i n T r o w e r - Bridge of Sighs? OH YES!
As always, I'm sure there are many more I've furgotten and I'll be looking furward to all of you sharing YOURS!
As Khyra said, have a great Monday!

Day After Soggy Saturday
It did stop from time to time - and just long enough to tease Mom into thinking it would NOT resume and that we would get to go fur our walk later Saturday! WRONG! Every period of suspended rainimation was followed by MORE high intensity showers! Of khourse, when it did stop, I rekhwested to go out. Here I am lounging in my dampness!
I'm ready to get khomfy with mine!
Chekhk out my pearlie whites!
Merdie ready to get khomfy with hers!
AND to further celebrate a great win for the Philadelphia organization, she opened her bottle of Mike Schmidt 548 Zinfandel to toast his 59th birthday! Growing up - and beyond - Michael Jack Schmidt was my mom's FAVOURITE baseball player! He's probably one of THE greatest 3rd basemen of ALL TIME!
I know I'm not the only pup in PA disappointed in the weather - chekhk out my khute pal from The Kapp Pakhk! She knows our pain!
Have a great rest of your weekend AND be SURE to help my handsome British pal Ben with his GREAT khause!!!
Khyra and MerdieTheGoldenDoofTrieverBirthdayGal

Okay - now I'll turn it over to Mom for her 'r'eview of R musikh!
Khyra's Mom here now! I started jotting down potential material fur today's post and 'r'ealized this will be a three parter - groups, females, and then males!
We'll start off with an oldie - how about some R E N A I S S A N C E with this furry appropriate tune! The lead singer of Renaissance, Annie Haslam , has one INKHREDIBLE vokhal range!
From there, how about some R U S T E D R O O T . I would suggest listening to "Send Me On My Way" on their myspace page.
Or perhaps some R E D H O T C H I L I P E P P E R S ? Or R. E. M. (by the way, make sure woo chekhk out the pup in the video!)? Or some R. E. O. S p e e d w a g o n - and I'll throw two videos up fur this - the sekhond one has TWO Kansas khonnekhtions!!!
I'll khlose with two newer R's - one is lokhal: R A I S E U P R O O F B E A M S and another would be R E D M O L L Y

Walkin' Wednesday VI
Tuesday, September 16, 2008
And Gizmo has MY post Tue-day
Monday, September 15, 2008
As you saw from the posts, Khyra and Merdie had fun - and thanks to the yukhky weather in Pawslyvania on Sunday, we did furry little...walk time was after 7pm and it still made for a glowy Mom!
SOOO, now we are to P GROUPS - I was going to be khlever and alphabetise them BUT I just decided to throw 'em up here as I jotted 'em down on the notepad that has been by the laptop to khapture my inspiration.
The furst one - well - it has to be P i n k F l o y d and it has to be T H I S S O N G - yes, too often I feel like a lost soul swimming in a fishbowl. No matter how many times I hear this song, I will NEVER tire of it - and it always khalls for turning up the volume on whatever I am listening to.
Next P on the paper? P O C O and R o s e O f C i m a r r o n - still sounds great! As does P u r e P r a i r i e L e a g u e and A M I E - falling in and out of love with you!
Ladies choice time again - P r o c o l H a r u m and Whiter Shade of Pale.
How about some assorted oldies but very goodies: Peter Paul and Mary (doing a great Dylan tune!) and Paul Revere and The Raiders with a something our khanines usually are?
NOW, time for T h e P r e t e n d e r s who will be releasing something new early next month...and here's something old.
Next one on my list? How about some P s y c h e d e l i c F u r s ? OR maybe some P e a r l J a m ? OR maybe T h e P o l i c e ? .
Time for some harder sounds - this furst one is for Joey in Tempe's dad: P a n t e r a ! The next is for all of us that survived the great hair bands of the 80's - P o i s o n .
Two last ones - they fall into the newer khategory - one is lokhal to me - P e r k a s i e and maybe some and then a group that just played the Kansas State Fair: P u d d l e O f M u d d
Well, this khonkhludes another Musikh Monday/Momday! Please share and khompare the P Groups from YOUR list!
Have a great week - Khyra will be bakhk tomorrow!

Saturday, September 13, 2008
Khamp Khounselor MFT
WELL, she's bakhk! Merdie's people went khamping fur the weekend (that is my mom woo hear snikhering fur it is raining as I paw this) - they went to a khool for bi-ped amusement park
SOOOOOO khousin Merdie gets to stay here with me!
When her people dropped her off Friday night, the furst thing she did was snatch one of my Sibe stuffies from MY toybox!
We had assorted joustings and chasings. The pikhs are from a khool down period.
Mom is hoping the natural light will khooperate later today so she khan get some video of us 'playing' She'll also try to get some Walkin' with Merdie and Khyra paw shots too!
We've been watching the khoverage from Hurrikhane Ike - it ain't gonna be pretty. Gustav was a yappetizer khompared to the wrath of this one. We'll be khrossing our paws fur all affekhted.
Mom says thank once again fur the feedbakhk on her Friday musikh 'p'ost - the additional artists mentioned were FURRY good! In fakht, she thinks Pete Townshend's one album has one of THE best titles EVER - in fakht, she paraphrased it for a khaption on one of my pikhks!
We would like our readers to stop by and show some support fur Deetzy Boy and his mom...Gizmo has just about passed along all he needs to teach and share with Deetz. I'll stop now before I make my mom leak. Deetz told her not to but woo know how moms khan be!
Have a great Saturday!
Khyra AND Merdie
And I KNOW woo needed a huzzy shot!
The above shots were taken AFTER we filed this report!

Workin' Fur The Weekend
I'm glad evfurryone enjoyed my sekhret trip to Mom's workplace. My pal Ekhho asked why she had all the khalendars - well, one khan never have toooooo many khute Siberian pikhs - plus, one was a gift and one was from TOTTSHR - and we are going to their hike N E X T S A T U R D A Y . The other one - well, must have been due to the rule of threes?
Time for me to turn it over to Mom for Musikh Momday BUT before I do I wanted to tell all my pals out there in the path of Hurrikhane Ike to please be safe. It does not look like it is going to be a good weekend in Texas. Doesn't Ike know you don't mess with Texas???
Okay, MFT - MY TURN NOW! Time for P-boys and men! Let's get started with my own personal most important P - P h i l O c h s although I'm ashamed to admit I never heard and/or listened to him when he was still alive and performing. One very special friend of mine introduced me to Phil's works and Phil's message. His songs were written in the 60's and 70's but sadly his messages khan so be applied to today's times. When trying to figure out which of his songs to feature here, since I khouldn't decide amongst all his message songs, I went with this beautiful song - probably one of the best songs Phil wrote - but then again, I khan be swayed by soft stuff! Plus my friend does an inkhredible version of it as well. It would be so nice to have Phil around today but he left us in 1976 but he left us lots to think about.
Another P will be one of the two Paul's that will feauture a song and/or myspace page. In this khase, Paul Young has a song I've always loved - it's actually a song Daryl Hall wrote - and it so fits our khanines - what do you think? I think our pups sing this to us as we leave.
The other Paul would be P a u l T h o r n . I found him whilst surfing myspace one day.
Pauls that will get honourable mention would be Anka, Kantner, McCartney, Weller, and Westerberg. HEY, I have to draw the line somewhere!
Okay, who of my generation doesn't own this guy's Frampton Khomes Alive album??? I even saw him here in York - wow!
Another guitar P: Pat Metheny - nice nice sound!
Then we have two former Genesis members: P e t e r G a b r i e l - and NO, it is NOT she's so funky now! AND then we have P h i l C o l l i n s - with a song I'm sure more than a few of us have felt the need/urge to sing! Plus, there is Phil with another P: Philip Bailey - Philip's voice range is tremendous!
Ummm - Prince - but he's a poopoo head - and doesn't pawmit his videos on Youtube BUT I found a great substitute - Ha-roooo!
I'll wrap it up with two newer and/or less known P's - P a t G r e e n - another one I was turned onto by a friend....and finally, P e t e r D a w s o n -who I akhtually saw when he performed in this area bakhk in 2004 - my friend opened for D r e w K e n n e d y who opened for Peter on a Thursday night - and then on Saturday, Peter and Drew did a show together in Merriland. Nice times - nice memories - nice nights!
I'm sure there are a few sad I didn't inkhlude Perry Como but MFT is khlawing fur her laptop bakhk!
Please share your P's and get ready for Musikh Monday/Momday P The Groups! I'm very 'p'syched fur I've got khwite the list!
Have a great rest of yours -please be safe this weekend!

Where She Goes
I decided to follow her and see where it she DOES go when she takes my Xterra fur the day. Hmmm, there it is. (Please furgive the pikh - she borrowed it from the website)
Hmmm - At least her khalendars are of a high khwality breed!
Yet more - when visitors to her office see the pikhs, they usually feel khompelled to ask one of those human (aka STOOPID) khwestions: so do you have a Siberian?
Her desktop - I khause her to go into a trance as she stares into my big chokholate browns!
At that is the view out of the other window AND the area where she takes and pikhks up the shipping paperwork.So, I guess she really does go to work when she leaves me AND I head bakhk up to bed fur the day!
