Thankful Thursday

Definitely a Thankful Thursday . . .

 I would like to thank Siku and Prinnie for my awards:

The rules state that I have to say seven beautiful things about myself. This is indeed a daunting task since I'm so humble, but I'll give it a try.

1. I am loved unconditionally despite the fact that I’m obstinate, ornery, VERY vocal,  bold, temperamental, suspicious of everyone and everything, do not understand the meaning of ‘obedience’ and always like to get my own way.

2. I also have positive attributes which I share with my Mom. We’re both: Capricorns, agile, petite and highly intelligent. We have great legs, do not smell, have a cuteness overload and love to nap and eat.

3.  I have a big-dog attitude packed inside a pint-size frame and guard the house as if I were paying the mortgage.  I love my job.

4.  I'm very appreciative of  home cooked food.  Oliver and I  eat a lot of chicken, turkey, London broil, tri tip, pot roast. vegetables, pasta and rice.  There's also these things called *wonder burgers* which contain more vegetables and vitamins. 

5.  I put up with Oliver's antics.  He's not the easiest dog to live with.  He thinks everything is about HIM.
(Silly boy, everyone knows that IT'S ALL ABOUT ME.)

6.  I make sure my parents have plenty of exercise by taking them on numerous daily walks.

7.  I appreciate all my toys and I'm happy that everyone plays with me.

I pass this on to Casper D. Dog, Comet and BLU, Tegan, Mack and Sally Ann, Lorenza, Khyra and Momo and Pinot (They're Cavaliers and don't know us yet, but they will.)

Here's what's been going on in our lives:

The Easter Bunny came to our house with more toys for us and for Mom to pick up.

I gave Oliver driving lesson and took him to the doggie park.
("I see that tongue, Ollie.")

Here's Oliver enjoying his *cigar*. (Notice how he blends in with the floor and the cabinets.)

Gates were installed to restrict  Oliver from certain rooms in  the house.  (It's a good thing that he never had agility lessons.)  He had been leaving a few odious *surprises* on the dining room floor and no one was happy.  Out of the goodness of my heart I stay confined with him, but I'm allowed everywhere.

Oliver's days of table sitting are now over.

Our neighbor's daughter had a new baby boy and Mom crocheted this blanket for her and also sent a cute outfit with paw prints on it.  We hope they like cats.

We hope everyone has a happy Friday and a great weekend.

Cappy, you captured such a beautiful picture of yourself with your 7 facts! You ARE a beautiful blogger! Mom's baby blanket will be a family heirloom for the wee one and the outfit is so cute. You are such a good brother driving Oliver to the Park and offering to stay in doggie jail with him...I am afraid I am not so nice to Quin...(ok mom...yet)!

Mom wanted me to send her thanks for the encouragement about my bad behavior concerning Quinn using the dog door. It WILL take time and things will settle down...she sometimes forgets just how new this all is. Thanks for reminding her.

Cappy - I LOVE your list! That was really great to read. Wow - what a great sibling you are, and even teaching Oliver how to drive??!!! You really are a cutie patootie and I'm glad we're blogging buddies!


ps: It's an eski's prerogative to be bossy and loud and determined! You go, Cappy!!

Thanks for leave a comment at the House of Cats for the Commentathon. I am not wildly fond of cats but I appreciate that the homeless needy ones need us to care, too!

Hello little eskie, you are so cute! We are sorry that someone ruined all your fun by leaving surprises. That's just no good at all!
