A Bouquet and Some Berries!

Tail wags, all!  It's me - Stormy!

Over the weekend, we received a beautiful bouquet of roses from our friend Golden Samantha!  She said,  "These pink roses are given to friends, bringing them a sweet and fruitful day. Those who receive these roses as a gift need to pass them on to ten friends to show them you care. And to those who received the roses, it's to show you are never forgotten."

That is so very kind, Sammie!  We are quite honored and just love them.  OK... Zim tried to eat them, but that's how he is.  Ha roo roo roo!  We would like to pass the bouquet along to:

Huffle Mawson, Explorer Cat and Honorary Husky
Steve, Kat and Wilbur (Yes, all three of them.  I LIKE Wilbur!  So does Zim!)
The OP Pack - Dakota, Phantom and TD - their weather has been as cold and blustery as ours, and this could help warm their mom up!  It made ours smile and think more Spring-like thoughts!
Everyone over at the Beaded Tail - Angel, Isabella and Sadie -- and their mom, too!
Parker and her family - Puff, Powder, Rudy and Diamond
The Dughallmor Beagles - Gabbi, Rosie, Alfie and Snoop!
and Mochi!

That might be more than ten bloggers, but it's ten blogs!  :)

Speaking of Spring-like thoughts, guess what we had over the weekend?  Well, yes, high winds, bitterly cold temps and a Wintry mix, but that's not what I meant.  STRAWBERRIES!  We had our first taste of strawberries!  I was in the kitchen helping, and I got the first taste!

Of course I'd like some!

Then the boys came in and got a little...

...then Ammy came in and Mom gave her a little taste.

She ended up putting hers on the living room carpet, studying for a while, then giving it to Zim.  She's like that.

The berries were simply delicious - and now Dave is all excited.  He figures if it's berry season, watermelon can't be too far behind!

I hope all of you enjoyed the weekend!  Many thanks again to Sammie for the beautiful bouquet!

Tail wags,
Storms

  1. Just what we need on another blustery cold day!!! Beautiful pink roses - we love them!!! Thank you and Mom is definitely smiling too.

    Those strawberries are very tasty looking but we have only had strawberry ice cream - wonder if they will taste as good - Mom says much better - maybe she will get us some too.

    Pee Ess, that is mighty nice of you to offer to take us poor waifs in while the humans go away. We'll see what we can work out.

  4. Hi Guys
    Thank you so much for the lovely roses - our favourite colour too!
    We will post about them soon and pass them on.
    We have never thought of trying strawberries - we are not keen on bananas or apples!
    Perhaps we are not fruity basset hounds!
    Thanks again for the bouquet
    love

  16. Oh thank you so so much for the beautiful roses! We love roses in our house. Mum says she should be allowed to share them but I think I'll put them in my purple Huffle bed.

    Please tell Ammy she was very sweet to share her strawberry with my bestest friend Zimmie.

  17. Dear Ammy,
    Guess what?? I had the same reaction the first time that Momma gave me a strawberry! I let Eva have it. Though I do eat them now. Momma said it was the competition effect.

    Love,
    Brice
