It's MY Turn!

Hey everybody! It's me, Mitchy, and I read that Maggie and mom got to play catch with marshmallows and I was outside in the workshop helping dad and I missed all the fun that was going on inside the house!

Yesterday mom made New England clam chowder for dindin and when she had a spare moment I asked her if she could toss me some of those oysterette soup crackers so I could practice my catching skills!

Here is comes! I got it, Maggie!

OOPS! I think I jumped too high for that one! Better aim lower next time!
HAHA - thought you'd fool me but I saw you from around the corner! You're a very tricky little cracker!
That one was supposed to be mine! Can't you see me glaring at you, Maggie?!

Darn! Mom's calling dad to dindin! Last one! I think I've got this one!Hey, that was really fun! You guys have to try this at home!

Our friend, Petra is in the running for the Awesome Blog Award for October! If you have never met Petra you're missing out! She is a Boston Terrier and she is a real cutie but don't let her cuteness fool you - she's one little pepperpot! She'll put you in your place in a heartbeat! So if you haven't yet made up your mind on who you're voting for, head on over to the Bone Zone and vote for Petra and thank you!

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

Yer friend,

Mitchy, those oyster crackers look yummy! Around here, we don't do so well at catching. Penny is the only one who catches almost anything. Poppy can catch stuff most of the time and poor Patches misses about 9 out of 10 times. She keep trying, though! New England clam chowder sounds like a good meal for a cold autumn day!

Oh Mitchie - those are the funnest pictures ever!!! And you are a good catcher! I don't understand it when people throw food at me... I can't understand why they are chucking stuff at my head. Kinda scares me. I need to take lessons from you!


Woof Mitchie,

Great catch. You are a very talented catcher. Mom was laughing at your photos and said that you were very dramatic looking.

hi Mitch and Maggie, we love your pictures of catching the crackers, Mitch. your ears totally get into the action! hee hee. we are gonna have to make our mom teach us to catch food. we don't have that talent and it looks like so much fun when you do it.


Putter said...

OMG! Maggie and Mitch!

This is AWESOMEST EVER! You guys are so lucky to get to play catch with FOOD! That never happens here ... I just get to play catch with MY NEW TENNIS BALL! OMG!


Putter ...:)

Dexter said...

Gee whiz, Mitch, does making doofus face help you with catching those things?


Koobuss said...

Hey Mitch! Those are great shots of you catching those crackers, but I have a word of advice. NEVER, NEVER, EVER leave the kitchen when a human is cooking something. It's just not a good idea. You cannot leave the kitchen unguarded. I have my spot right in the middle of the floor, exactly half-way between the stove and the refrigerator. That way I don't miss anything cuz my mom always has to walk around me. Try it Mitch. It works.

Koobuss Kisses,

Were they good?
