Lucky Friday and Earth Hour

We three hooligans are truly lucky and we always try to remember just how lucky we are... especially when we do something B.A.D. that sends us either to time-out or a short incarceration in the Big House! We always make it out alive and kickin' and in our book, that makes us lucky. We read every day about the awful abuse that other doggies go through and are reminded that a moment in time-out is nothing compared to their lives.

So imagine our surprise when the mail was brought in from the mailbox and there was a package for us! WE ARE SO LUCKY!!! Our friend Mason Dixie sent us mail! Of course, we all did the major sniffing and decided there was something edible inside and it must be busted open immediately. We would love to show you pictures but our mom was still at work and she had the camera with her. We quickly found the bag of yummy treats but discovered something else in the package also. It was us!

It was us staring back at us! Mason Dixie had sent us a beautiful magnet of us. Well, we immediately placed it on the side of the refrigerator for all to see. We can be found right next to the Jayhawks magnet that lights up and the flowers and Dachshund paper holder yet above the cheezy "Visit Louisville" magnet and right next to the kitchen under-the-counter radio/CD player remote. The side of our refrigerator has become a plethora (hee hee, we like that word. It sounds funny.) of funny and memorable magnets. Mom thinks its great!

That wasn't all that was in the package though. Also inside was a wonderful postcard with Mason's pretty face on it. We immediately found a prominent place on the front of the refrigerator to display that also. Her loveliness can be found to the right of the map of the United State and below and to the left of our girl Keegan's artwork. As you can see, her artwork covers the whole front of the refrig. She is such the artist! Gotta love kindergarten!

You've probably noticed that there is nothing on the bottom of the refrigerator (on the freezer portion). Why not you ask? Well, some certain doggie (we won't mention names... Tucker!) likes to do drive-by's and grab anything on the bottom, tear it off and run! He's not happy until it has been shredded into a million pieces. Mom says she has baby-proofed the fridge. Guess she's calling Tucker a baby! (Tucker's a baby... Tucker's a baby! He isn't even a year old yet so technically, he still is a puppy. Boy is he going to be ticked when he reads this. We feel a wrestling match coming on! Let's get ready to rumble!)

Mason, thanks so much. Your kindness is super awesome and you are the reason we are so lucky this week!

We also want to remind everydog that tomorrow, Saturday March 28, is Earth Hour. Make sure you remember to turn your lights off and unplug anything else that you possibly can for one hour from 8:30pm-9:30pm to save energy. Sounds like a great time to go for a moon-lit walk or to snuggle in a candle-lit room with the ones you love. For more information, visit

Have a wonderful weekend everyone and say a prayer for those living in the Fargo, North Dakota area. Mother Nature is wreaking havoc. We are praying that every human and animal gets through the flooding safely.

Tinkerbell, Oscar and Tucker

What fun ... aren't unexpected gifts just the best! Love the magnet and the post card! :)

Thank you for posting about Earth Hour. We're going to totally shut down our power ... at the circuit box ... everything. If we don't open up the refrigerator/freezer during that hour ... everything should be just fine for 60 minutes. As for what we'll be doing ... we're going to have a picnic by candle light.

Enjoy the weekend!

Very nice magnet. We would do the earth hour thingy, but Mommy is afraid she'd melt without her A/C on.She's in some kind of personpaws, which we don't understand, but she gets flashes of fire and just about explodes when it gets warm!

Oscar, Tinkerbell, and Tucker,
I am soooo jealous of your fridge magnet. You are so cute and certainly are lucky to have a grrreat friend who made and sent you the magnet AND treats.
I know about that awful flood thing. The good news is that they had lots of warning. I hope all the two and four leggeds got away and don't lose their homes.
Your little person is a very much grreat artist!!!! Love the "paintings". They certainly need to be protected from Tucker. he he he
