The Night Before Turkey ...

The Night Before Turkey,
and all through the house ...
Mom and Grandma are cookin'
and I'm buggin' about.

My sniffer's on overload
There's food to be smelled,
I can't help it if Turkey-Day's
only a day away.

By golly I need food
or I'll just melt away.
Turkey, and gravy
Mashed potatoes
Carrots and corn
And another growl from my belly.

Mom's got side dishes galore,
and all they're preparing,
Right now for me?
Hmmmmm ... just dad's favorite
KeyLimePie yogurt, and a Mary-Chino Cherry.

--- Don't I look nifty sportin' my muzzle and ball-cap? Dad took me to a local ballgame, and I got to watch two teams of kids smash each other on a football field.
And peeps in the stands didn't "shush" me when I started to bark at the ref.

Matter-of-fact, I got "high fives" from the peeps behind Dad and me ... and some dude Dad knows gave me half of his ballpark Frank. MMMMmmmmm, half of a chilidog is better than none, you know. I gave him a big mustard and ketchup grin, and a big kiss.

You know, I almost jumped onto the field to bite the ref for another "bad call", but Dad kept me tethered. Shucks!

Better luck next time.

Shadow, C-A-T!

It's My Birthday, and I'm going to party like it's my Birthday!

With a woofish "Shout-out" to all of my woofies and meowies ... (and barkies and purries, too ... as well as the rabbies and mousies, fishies, and lizzies ... even the snakies that give me the willies) Three cheers to me ... I'm Five (or at least, that's how old "Mom & Dad" think I is)... but 'tiz my third anniversary with my peeps "Mom and Dad", so all is very, very well.

Thank you all for all the Birthday well-wishing. Much appreciated.

May your Thanksgiving and Birthdays be as memorable and life-affirming as mine.
Woof! Woof!

Shadow, still a Canine-About-Town.

P.S. (A furry friend of mine said P.S. meant passionate kisses, but that'd be P.K., so I think I'll state for the record, p.s. means "please stay" and read some more).

The snaps on this post were taken by "Mom" while at a Church function. My mom and dad are pretty helpful at their Church, and during the yardsale I got to kibbitz to my heart's content. Lots of peeps came by to tickle my chin and give me oodles of pets and kisses. Wow! That was so awesome. With my muzzle on, and Dad's cap to keep the scorchin' sunshine at bay, I watched from the backend of Grandma V's truck. Grandma V. is my mom's Mom, and I gave her a bunch of kisses before the snaps ... 'cuz she let me claw around in the back of her truck, with my little tootzies.

Don't I look cute?

You betcha.

Peace and Happiness to all.
Shadow, C-A-T

Holiday Secret Paws is HERE!

Hi efurryone! I've been off-line for awhile (yeah, I know ... Six months is a long, long time not to be bloggin' or visitin' anyone) ... My dad's pretty busy with his substitute teaching.

Anyway, I wanted to mention that I just got signed up to paw-ticipate in Holiday Secret Paws again this year an' I wanted to remind efurry woofie, cat, bun, rat ... in fact, EFURRY member of the blogosphere to stop by Diva Kitty an' the Fluffies bloggie to get signed up, too!

Secret Paws is really fun. Last year, I got Kesey as my Paw an' I got him some really nice stuff for his Paw Package including a nifty bandana to wear. An' I got a Paw Package, too! It had treats an' toys inside. It was nifty to get a package in the mail that was just for me.

If you're interested, all you have to do is visit the Holiday Secret Paws link for the details an' then send an email to Diva Kitty an' the Fluffies' mom at with your name, address, and preferences.

I'm already signed up! You should get signed up, too!
