Fred's Leg

Fred's leg is fine.  After resting up Sunday and limiting his running (particularly on ice) his leg is now fine.  But of course Mr. Dramatica is trying to milk it for all it's worth.

"Can you get me my bone Momma?"

"Get it yourself Fred. There's nothing wrong with you."

"I can't reach Momma."

"Pleasssseee! Momma!"

"I guess I'll just lay here in the window and watch the world go by." Sigh!!

"Will I ever run free in the outdoors again Momma?"

"Can you get me a drink Momma?"

"No Fred, there's nothing wrong with you."

"Maybe some kibble, or t-bone steak?"

"For the last time Freddie!!!" "You jumped up on the couch didn't you?"


"Gawd! Freddie your such a baby!"

Monday Mischief - No

The weekend was slow and lazy around our house.  Since it rained all day Friday, froze over and turned into a snowstorm on Saturday our yard had hidden ice underneath the snow.  Fred wound up sliding around and hurt his front leg.  So he limped around and believe me trying to restrict his playtime and the use of his leg wasn't easy!  So it was back on the leash everytime he went outside again.  Sunday he laid around with his Dad waiting for the Daytona 500 to come on.

And they waited.

 Then after the rain wouldn't let up they postponed the race until Monday at noon.  When everybody will be at work!

Meal Time for the Hounds

Meal time at our house for Fred and Gloria, like everything else that involves Fred, is dramatic. Fred lays staring at the bowls of food while Gloria sits looking from Fred to the bowls and whimpers. Fred eventually gets up and struts, yes I mean struts, over to his bowl and starts eating.  Gloria will lay there staring at Fred and whimper but won't eat until he is completely finished his food.  If I don't supervise Fred will then proceed to eat Glorias food too.  I tell Fred no and he drops to the floor, well more like throws himself on the floor, remember "Mr. Dramatica". Only then will Gloria finally go and eat her food while Fred lays there and whines like he's starving to death!

It goes something like this,

"Come on Gloria! Come and get your food girl!"

(sigh!) "No, no.......I'll wait until Freddie's had enough."  (sigh!)
After almost a year of being with Fred, Gloria's become quite dramatic herself.

When Freds bowl is empty she goes over to eat........aaaaand then Fred starts!

"Help Gloria, I need more food!"

 "That sure looks tasty! I can't remember the last time I had a good meal." sniff!sniff!

"You're not having my food Freddie! I just watched you eat!"  "Momma!"

"FRED!"  "Leave her alone!"

"Get off my back woman!"

"What did you say?"

"Heh,heh,heh, just kiddin'......I mean....What, I'm not doing nothing Momma."

And that happens twice a day at feeding time in our house!  What's it like at meal time for your fur babies?

Freddie Spaghetti's Song

I can't believe I have done this, but I did. By popular request I have recorded Freddie listening to me while I sang his Freddie Spaghetti song. It's amazing the silly things we do for our dogs, but just look at the love in Fred's eyes.  I think that says it all.

Warning:  I am not, have never claimed to be or will ever be a professional singer, so listen at your own risk. heh,heh!  And please if you are having a sip of your morning coffee, swallow it before listening because you or somebody close to you will probably wind up wearing it!

Enjoy 'cause it'll never happen again!

Playing in The Snow

Fred and Gloria have had lots of fun playing in the snow we've gotten over the past week and a half.
They've done the basset hound dance.........

Gloria tried to catch snowflakes on her tongue......

"Geez Gloria, it's not even snowing!" "Got a little bit of  'tard in ya there, do ya!"

They've eaten snow. (thankfully just the white stuff)
And when Gloria's had enough of Fred,

she lets him know it and goes and sits by the back door.

Freddie tries to shake it off.

Then into the house they go to pass out.

Now that's what I like to see!! :)

Monday Mischief - The Foiled Breakout

Once again, Friday I did my pre-weekend dog drool, fur and any other hound crud cleaning.  Fred and Gloria took their usual spot in the kitchen while I went on drool patrol.
This time however things were a little different.  Instead of Freddie sticking the wooden piece of the gate in his eye and laying there all dramatic like he usually does. He decided for some reason that he was breaking out!

"Come on Gloria!" "I'm breaking us outta here!"

"Nom, nom, nom....get up and help, Gloria."

"I'm telling, Freddie."


"Whoa!" "Geez, Gloria!"  "Did you fart over here!"

"It's hard to get good help anymore." sigh!

Awards, Awards, Awards!!

I have gotten behind on my awards.  I have no excuses except there doesn't seem to be enough hours in a day anymore. It's not a great excuse, but it's the only one I've got. So I am going to try and catch up.

We received a Liebster award from The Chick and The Hound who writes about her life with Annie Oakley her basset hound. Thank you!

Liebster means dearest in German and the award is intended to help up and coming blogs get the attention they deserve.  As with any award there is a bit of ceremony involved.  In order to accept the award we must do the following:
1. Copy and paste the award on our blog.
2.Link back to the blogger who gave us the award.
3.Pick our five favorite blogs with less than 200 followers and leave a comment on there blog to let them know they have received the award.
4.Hope that the five blogs chosen will keep spreading the love and pass it on to five more blogs.
Here are my picks.

Redberry Cottage
Two Doodles and A Dane
Fablulous Flo
Pawfect Days
Angus and Milo's Adventures

Thanks again to The Chick and The Hound!

Our next award is the Pawsome Blogger Award.

We received this award from three different people and can't thank each of them enough. The first from The Charming Chi, check out the five chihuahuas, second from Bentley the Basset with his words of wisdom and we all know the third, Haopee over at My Dogs Love Me.  After receiving this award we must pass it on to 8 other blogs that bring us love, laughs and furiendship. I am passing this award on to:

The next award was the Lief Award given to us by Urban Hounds.  We are honored. Thank you so much!

They say that Lief means sweet in Dutch so we are humbled to receive this award from such a terrific blog as Urban Hounds.  We will pass this on to three blogs we enjoy.

The Daily Oskar
Yuki and Rocket
Home is Where the Hounds Are

Thanks once again to Urban Hounds!

The next award was one of two given to us by Misty Shores Chesapeakes. We are truly honored for both.  The first is the One Lovely Blog Award.

The purpose of this award is simply to recognize the efforts of fellow bloggers and to let them know that their work is appreciated. There is no limit to how many this can be passed on to.  I love all the blogs I read but I am passing this on to two.

The Empty Nesters Family Daily
Ultimutt Pet Sitting

The second award from Misty Shores Chesapeakes is the Hope Unites Globally Hug Award. This is a truly special award and we are so honored to receive it.

You can read about this award and all it stands for here. Like Misty Shores Chesapeakes a couple of the paragraphs really stood out to me.

These people do not have to actively use the word “hope” in their work or creative talents.  They only need be conscious of their desire to make the world a better place for everyone.
These people use their available resources–a smile, a hug, a helping hand, a listening ear, a voice, time, money, possessions, education, personality, talent, websites and blogs—to make a positive impact on the world and make the world a better place to live.

You can share this award with as many blogs as you like. You can read about it here.
There are so many terrific blogs out there who share a part of themselves with us to make us laugh, make us cry and make us feel better. It is so hard to choose as all the blogs I read are great, but I am going to pass this award on to 5 people.

Dashshund Nola
Bailey Be Good
The Adventures of Higgins
Finn Howard
Hound Dog Mom

Thanks again to Misty Shores Chesapeakes for this wonderful award!

And thank all of you for bearing with me through this long awards ceremony.  I hope you all have a great weekend!  I know I will!

Crazy Weather

This winter the weather has been crazy! January was just rainy and muddy.  Then we had temperatures as high as 15C this February and as cold as -19C all within a week.

This was Fred on Monday February 6th basking in the sun.

 It was so warm he didn't even want to terrorize play.

By Friday night we had a snow storm.

Look closely at that tree and you can see the garbage bag. heehee!

Monday February the 13th the hounds were romping in the snow again!!

I wish it would just pick a temperature and stay there. Either stay cold or stay warm, instead of mud, snow, mud, snow!

Crazy I tell ya....just crazy!
