Our humans are however NOT going to Cape Town, but will be going to the sea along the EAST coast of SOUTH AFRICA. Unfortunately Mom will not be able to blog during that time, so we are trying to fill up with exciting blogposts before they leave!
We have some exciting news...
Yesterday we received the most awesome award from Petey!
Petey's wonderful and creative Mom has designed this award - an award which we think is a truly amazing one!
It's the "YOU'RE A BLESSING AWARD!" and is a brand new award in bloggie-land!
Thank you so much Petey for this award. It is very, very special!
"This award is to be bestoed upon five individuals with the hopes that they will cut and paste the badge above for their blogs, then honor five more and so on and so on... "
Although ALL our friends are special to us and have been such a blessing to us in the past few months, we have had to choose five special people. So we give this award to them with absolute thanks and gratitude for the extra special roles they have played on our life:
1. TO COCORUE
Our little flirtylicious COCO! Thank you for the delightful bantering which Max & you have - on the chat box - and on the blog! Thank you also for your constant message of hope and warmth. Thank you for sharing your friendship with us...you are a real blessing to us!
For those who don't know, Tessa's mom battles a lot with her health yet still manages to blog. She has gone beyond this blog to email us with uplifting messages and guidance during our ordeals. We so appreciate them! Thank you - you are a blessing to us!
You are such a blessing to us in that you allow us to experience the altruistic aspects of life. We love your poetry, your vision and the manner in which you convey it! Thank you!
Who can't love MANGO & DEXTER! Thank you for blessing us with your incredible sense of humour, your creativity and for ALWAYS putting a smile on our faces. Thank you for all the support you have given us on the sidelines too. We appreciate you immensely!
Thank you for bringing Kona's story to us and for taking that special step to offer him a forever home. You have shown us the beauty of rescuing a dog and the joy for that dog in finding the freedom he deserves. You are an inspiration in so many ways...and a real blessing!
Whilst I can write books for each of our blogging friends, I am restricted to five. Thank you to all of you for the blessing you are to us in simply being our blogging friends!
We love you all and wish you all...
A HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!
Okay, I'll tell you...Mom has ridded me of the bandages! At first, I thought I felt
but not for long!
Unfortunately I started scratching when the bandages came off, so Mom thought she'd put PHANTOM & THUNDER's idea into practice. Hey guys, what have you done to me? Mom says that it works well! I must admit, it is quite comfortable and stops me from scratching. I am seeing the Vet on Friday...maybe he'll take my stitches out!?! Not sure about the T-SHIRT though!
Anyway, this new T-Shirt effort is quite calming and comforting.
TOFFEE thought he'd relax too!...
Until supper time!...
There is just one other thing which I want to show to my bloggie-friends.
Since we will be away for a week from Saturday, I thought we'd get a special sign for our house.
That's all for today! We'll TRY and get one more post in before the family goes on holiday.
Lots of licks
