Moose Antlers

We got a delivery from Chewy Friday night and we couldn't wait to open up the box.  Mom said that something very yummy was in there for both of us.
Poop bags?  That's not very yummy or exciting, mom.

 Now you're talkin'!  We've heard about how good moose antlers can be but we've never had them before - until now!

 Look at the size of this thing. It's easily a foot long!
 Mom - Molly is guarding!
 Know what?  The smaller one is actually pretty good, Molly, so you go on and enjoy the killer big one!
As it turns out, the smaller one is the more popular one. Who could have known!
These moose antlers are awesome and they'll be keeping us busy for quite awhile!

So until next time...........

Love ya lots♥

Apple Crisp

We helped mom make apple crisp this afternoon!

 The first 4 apples were picked off our apple tree.  They're not the prettiest apples but they sure are good! Dad doesn't spray the tree because the swans and geese and ducks eat the apples that fall.   The fifth apple came from the grocery store. 
 Tonight's dinner is Pasta Fagioli soup and Apple Crisp!
Nooooooooooooooo - is all of that really for us, mom?  It is being served in OUR dishes!
 Apple crisp with coffee ice cream is pretty yummy!

We are crossing our paws that we get to have apple crisp again tomorrow night for dessert!

So until next time..............

Love ya lots♥

Mitch Needs Ice Cream

There is a lady named Miss Joni who reads our blog.  She never comments but she writes to us on occasion and lets us know that she is reading our posts.    We got an email from her a couple of days ago and her comment was, "Mitch looks skinny and he needs ice cream!"
Is she not the most wonderful and the smartest lady ever?

Mom took pictures of us on our walkies from behind.  Whose hiney looks a whole lot larger?
I'm on the right, closer to the vegetation and Molly is on my left.  

Miss Joni is right!  I am skinny.
I need ice cream, mom!

Mom found these really cool straw dishes at the grocery store.  They're for cereal and you can sip the milk when you're all done instead of spoon it out.
She got us Frosty Paws ice cream and you can't have ice cream without an ice cream cone so she filled the cones with honeydew melon and cantaloupe~
 Molly's bowl matches her tennis ball bandana and my bowl matches my apple bandana!  Mom chose the perfect colors!
 Please write to us often, Miss Joni!  You have the bestest ideas ever!
 Mom has been knitting a baby sweater and at long last, it's finished.  The baby that the sweater is for is due mid-October.    You made the deadline, mom.  Good job!
So until next time.............

Our Morning Walkies

Guess what I found on our walkies this morning?   If you can't tell what it is, it's a cantaloupe and I was able to get the entire thing in my mouth!

 Mom told me that I had to leave it. She said to carry it for an entire mile would be too painful for my jaw and I sure couldn't eat the whole thing in the middle of the road.   Don't you think we should give it a whirl and find out, mom?
This is Miss Laura's rock.  It sits on her rock wall right next to her mailbox.  
 This man has the most gorgeous roses!  He belongs to the Rose Society and his garden is picture perfect always.  We took this shot from a distance away.  Mom said that he definitely wouldn't appreciate 2 hooligans traipsing through his prize roses.
 Molly loves to eat grass on our walk. She rips it out and munches on it the entire way.    Mom keeps hoping that she'll give up this nutty behavior one day but Molly has no intention of stopping anytime soon.  Does anyone else have this crazy habit?
Mom didn't want me to be too disappointed that I couldn't carry my cantaloupe home so she surprised us with a treat.
Cantaloupe ☺    

This is the latest picture from the barn raising in Maine.  The rafters are up and the siding is being nailed on.  It's looking awesome!

So until next time...........

Barn Raising Day

It looks like their weather was great!  We can tell by this picture that dad has finished with his speech and the timber framers are ready to go to work to raise this barn!

 It's moving along beautifully!
 The floor joists are being installed and plywood will be put on deck so that the second floor timbers can be lifted into place safely. 
Second floor is going up!
The addition is on~
 All we can say is "WOW"!
Great job, guys! Day 1 is complete!
Enjoy your lobster dinners tonight. You have earned them!

So until next time............

Love ya lots♥

Teaching Them A Lesson

We do not have pictures for evidence so you will have to trust us.    We were heading out on our leashes to our red barn playpen to patrol and have some fun while mom weeded the gardens.  What we didn't know when we stepped outside the door onto our back porch was that Buster and Hazel were RIGHT THERE to welcome us.  Molly went into kill mode and I followed her lead.  We were chasing them as best we could (for being tethered on leashes) and we circling and going left and right to try to see what would happen if we jumped on top of them!
As this was happening, mom was hanging onto us for dear life and yelling our names to STOP!   And were we listening?  Heck no!
Mom was finally able to take control and get us into our red barn playpen where the door was shut and she could breathe a sigh of relief.   What would dad say if she had to tell him that 2 of his precious Black Swans got eaten by his favorite furkids?  hummmmmmm - do you think maybe they would taste like licorice?

We were teaching them a lesson, dad!  Suppose it wasn't two dogs on leashes that approached Buster and Hazel.   Suppose it was some other dogs out wandering and decided to check out our yard.  We let them know that it's not safe to be so far away from the pond, which is where they need to be for their safety. 
Aren't you so proud of us, dad ☺

 For the rest of the morning, Hazel kept antagonizing us by approaching the fence and trying to let us know that she was in charge and she was the boss and our way of greeting her and Buster at the back porch was not acceptable behavior.   What nerve!
 Hazel would go back and forth to Buster for his approval.
 And meanwhile, in the vege garden.   Someone is eating our tomatoes!    Yes, we have an over-abundance and we can't keep up.   I guess she thinks she's helping us out.
And guess what else mom discovered~
Jimson Weed - a beautiful plant but a deadly poisonous plant!  Thank goodness it's not within our reach!

And remember the morning glory near our back door that wasn't blooming?
It is now!
We have had a very exciting day!

So until next time.............

Love ya lots♥
