A Visit with Marg's Pets

Jasmine in front and Andy in back.

Chca Her telling this story:   The other day Mom and Pop (with flat Chica) took a drive down to visit Marg of Marg's Pets.  They had planned this a few months back but Igot really sick a few days before - one of two episodes this summer so they postponed the visit.  Mom wanted to go there before the weather got too cold and wintry.

Lovely Maggie!

Mahoney checking it all out!

It was a pretty drive and they got to meet lots of her critters. The first stop was the house where they met, Little Bit, Mahoney, Maggie, and Holly.  Andy and Jasmine welcomed them at the fence and were so excited to see us. (Woofies usually are!)

Maggie playing with Mahoney.

Holly getting loved up!

Little Bit - blurry - great shot Mom!

Mom had some camera issues and missed a lot of shots of Mahoney playing with the feather toy before she figured out what she was doing wrong!  Oh well.  Mahoney was adorable and Maggie so pretty.  Holly just loved Pop and sat on his lap all the time soaking up the attention.

Pop retrieving the buckets that the donkeys play with.

Smoke - how little they are!

Pop talking to Joe.

Orange Boyz showing us around.

Peppers hiding from Mom's camera.

The beans went to lunch at a great local place and when they came back took a tour of the barns and met Joe and Smoke, the donkeys and Peepers the goat.  Mom's camera scared Peepers who kept running away from her! Orange Boy took the tour with them along with Splitters.  (If we get any names wrong forgive Mom - she has a hard time remembering our names!!!!! )

Lucky peeking at us.

Tortie Spliters.

Tabatha and BG behind her.

Tabatha and BG were on the porch and Gertrude and Mewmew ran by but did not stay long enough to get a photo.  The folks did see so many of the critters and loved them all.  Marg was so wonderful - funny, easy to be with - every bit like her blog!  She prefers to remain a mystery so we won't show her here.  It was a fun day and Mom and Pop will be going back real soon!  Thanks Marg for a fun day!


We are running a give-away of the book Awkward Family Pet Photos.  It is available to all of Mom's blog followers.  If you want to enter the drawing - just mention that in your comment  below and follow one of her blogs - see the sidebar.  Most of you already follow us anyway!  For more info see our post here.

Bedtime Reading And Give-away

Sweetpea here today. Mom has been reading this fun book at night to us before she goes to sleep.  It is written by two screen and TV writers Mike Bender and Doug Chernack.  They have previously written the well known Awkward Family Photos book and have a website by the same name.

We laughed at the silly pictures of people and their pets along with some pretty funny stories behind the photos.  They have a section on pet portraits, holiday portraits and then just photos of  people with their cats, dogs, birds and even exotic pets.  Our favorite is this one with the poor cat sitting on the Easter Bunny's lap - bet he will never chase bunnies again!

We even recognized a contributor to the Awkward Family Pet Photos book - Karen Nichols of The Cats Meow blog and!  We give this book a full ~paws up~ for pet lovers!

If you would like to win your own brand new copy, just leave a comment below telling us you want to be entered in the give-away.  It's that simple!  We will pick the winner using on Nov. 22 during the week of Thanksgiving - just in time for Christmas.  Wouldn't this book make a great Christmas gift?

Another note of interest - we visited Marg of Marg's Pets yesterday.  Mom and Pop took flat Chica and went on a road trip to see all of Marg's great critters. It was so much fun. That story will be coming up later this week.  See ya then!
