Musing on Monday # 7

Now you know we dogs "live in the moment" (apparently Dad's do too) because we didn't even think of getting Mom a birthday present until the day of her birthday. Now admittedly there was nothing she wanted or needed so it made it easier for us to forget not worry until the actual day. So there was Mom on her birthday - looking at some train videos on YouTube when she came across a particular train she just fell in love with. Within a flash we 'boys' (Dad included hunted and scoured the internet until we found it at the best price and ordered it right then and there (living in the moment!)

This is what we got our Mom for her birthday a Boston Maine Steam train with real sounds for "HER" model train setup. It chuffs, it whistles (3 different whistles) it makes steam releasing noises and the sounds increase or decrease depending on the speed of the train and it is no doubt - going to drive us CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!! You can check out the video to hear it. The one in the video is the New York Train but it is the same thing with just a different name on the sides - they do 8 different names but the Boston/Maine one was on special, so that is the one we got her. Life under the table just got a whole more more noisy!!!!!


  1. Woof! Woof! Just can't believe that your mom loves train. it will be noisy but FUN. can't wait to see the finish train table. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  2. How thoughtful of you two, and your dad. I am sure this really was months in the planning. You might have to get some ear muffs for when you are under the table.

  3. Pawsome pressie for mum. Happy birthday mum. Choo Choo! Have a marvelous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Oh gosh - your Mom and I would so get along! I love trains - I got to train shows all the time! I don't have a set up yet, but I keep buying bits and pieces and dreaming.


  5. Poor guys, ou're in for a REAL (sarcastic) treat!
    Did you have a good day today, or yesterday or whatever, I don't know, 'cause time seems all messed up!
    Y'see, I say to doggy-folk "did you have a good day" and they say 'it's morning here."
    Anyhoo, enjoy the train...
    Pip! :)

  6. How cool! We thought you sent her away on a train

  7. Are you sure that your Mum got that train set for your Dad?

  8. That's a beautiful engine. We're glad Dad is enjoying HIS present so much!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  9. What a great birthday present! Its a really cool train, and it will look great in your moms layout!

    Happy birthday cowspot mom!

  10. The little train is just too cute! Your mom has been spending so much time on the layout and buildings! It's only right that she has her own engine too! What a thoughtful gift!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  11. What a cool pressie! Much better than the vacuum cleaners and tefal pans The Typist gets for her birthdays. I'm sure your dad would NEVER have thought of it without you guys. Sounds like you'd better get back onto ebay and see if you can get matching ear muffs though ;)

    Happy birthday to your mom! X

  12. How sweet! You guys had got your mom a wonderful birthday pressie! The train looks really really great!!! Does the train keep you busy as well, Reilly?

  13. That was the most romantic gift!
    Have fun playing with your new train.
    Thanks for being a friend
