A mommy post

I saw a fun meme on Nevis' blog and wanted to do it - so here we go!

1. The last band I saw live was Great Big Sea.

2. What I look forward to most on Thanksgiving is playing board games.

3. My Christmas/holiday shopping is going okay. I have a bit more time this year because normally I have to mail a lot of my gifts to Montreal. Since we're going for a visit over the holidays, I'll bring them all.

4. Thoughts of my mom who died earlier this year fill my head.

5. I wish I could wear clothes that I want to wear. Because I'm on the chubby size, they don't make a lot of the cuter clothes in my size.

6. Bagpipes are cool. I lived in Scotland for 2 years and saw the best bagpipe playing at an international competition and heard the eeriest, most moving bagpipes at Loch Ness where a lone piper played amongst the ruined castle.

7. And as for the weekend, a dear friend is taking me to the spa and then we're going to the Nutcracker.

And just for fun, here's a picture of Daisy I took last week. I call it "Block of Beige".

100th Post Extravaganza!

Daisy here! Oh, boy, today is an exciting day. Not only did we go walking in the cemetery in the snow but today is our 100th blog post. We're so excited, we're snorting up a storm.

To celebrate all the fun we've had so far this year, we're giving away stuff. FREE STUFF!!!! One lucky person will win the loot in the pictures below. To enter the contest, all you have to do is post a comment to this post. On Monday, Daddy and Pearl will randomly choose one winner and we will post the winner's name.

Here's what we're giving away. First, we have a package of our favorite treats (don't worry! It's not our bag. It's a new bag Mommy bought at the store!).

Next, we have the newest issue of Bark magazine.

And then we have 2 bookmarks! Not one, but two! Both made by Mommy and featuring me and my sister, Pearl. Here's the one with me:

And here's Pearl's:

And that's our contest! We hope you enter! We love giving away stuff!

Pug love from,

New Furniture

Hello! It's me Daisy. Mommy and Daddy got some new furniture and I've been really liking it! But Mommy hasn't been too happy with one thing - she said I'm allowed on the new couch (which scared me at first) but I'm not allowed on the new chair even when there are tempting blankies on it. Well, I showed her. Here I am in the morning before Mommy got up:

And this is me on the couch. Like I said, it scared me at first. It's made of dead cow! But the blankie made it better. Not so smelly.

But the way I enjoy the couch the best is when Daddy or Mommy are sitting on it. Daddy is especially good to lie on:

And sometimes it's just nice to sit beside him and use him as an arm rest. He doesn't mind!

In other news, we're coming up to our 100th post. Whoo-hoo! We think it's a reason to celebrate so we're going to have a little contest and give away some FREE stuff. Stay tuned...

Halloween Part 3

Mommy's a little late with the pictures from Halloween but better late than never she says and we don't really understand because we really don't like when our dinner is late. But we guess it's better we get it late than never so maybe she does have a point.

Anyhoodlies...Mommy got sucked in at the pet store a couple of weeks ago and bought a witch's hat. She thought it would be cute and funny if we both wore the hat, then she'd do some fancy Photoshopping and put us together in a picture with her in her witch's hat and then we'd have a great Halloween picture to post. But we didn't like the hat. Daisy wouldn't wear it all and tried to bite it when Mommy got near her. I wore it but only for like a millisecond because I don't like orange hair. This is only one of two pictures Mommy got. It made Auntie Maria laugh so we decided to post it.

Halloween was pretty fun. We got to sit at the door. Here's Mommy before she went outside to give away candy (she likes to go outside so that the kiddies don't ring the door bell. We don't get so freaked out then. We like to see the visitors but we don't like that dang bell!).

And this is the outside. Mommy is looking at us saying to Daddy, "Take a picture of the girls." Now that she sees this picture, something about herself reminds her of Winona Judd.

Well, that's all the Halloween until next year!
