Sunday Snippets #1

We often get asked questions in our comments and we must admit we don't leave comments on our comments so often these questions go unanswered. We are going to try a rectify that with our "Sunday Snippets" which is going to be a time to answer questions, add information about a previous post or just mention something we forgot.

Snippet 1 - A few people asked if it was okay to send Andrea another card - we know she would love that. She so enjoyed getting them the first time, she loved seeing all us furbabies and reading about us. She wanted us to say a BIG BIG BIG thank you to everyone because they really did make her feel special :) She is home now and starting on her physical therapy.

Snippet 2 - We loved doing the "shopping around the world" with Bacon and Fozzie and they say they will be doing it again soon with some different items. We asked Bacon if he could  give everyone a bit more notice as many of you said you would of liked to have joined in if you knew about it.

Snippet 3 - We were reading some more on the Pigmy Shrews and guess what - they have a venomous bite - who knew! It is really only venomous to tiny insects and such but if can make peeps sore if they nip you. Mom knows not to touch any animals in the wild because of rabies which is why she kept us back - and yes Mom is one of those that notices the tiniest things all around her and we must admit we walked right past it and didn't even see it :)

Snippet 4 - Remember Mom got really annoyed about the goldfish in MY lake - well Mom never heard back from the park superintendent or the parks and fisheries people - so she called our local TV news people again and guess what - they did a story on it. Mom didn't want to be interviewed again but they did use the photos she took and they got the information out there about it being illegal to put non native fish in the lake. You can see the story here  Dad says Mom is going to get a reputation as a greenie (we pondered on this as the "greenies" we have seen are for us doggies to munch on for fresh breath and we don't ANY ONE munching on our Mom ! )

Snippet 5 - Mr and Mrs Tuffy Ducks are nesting ! We had trouble finding them yesterday but along one of the little creeks that flows into lake there they were.  We are so excited - she has built such a nice big nest.  And YES Easy - he does look like he is a poodle duck with his funny top knot. We also love seeing him in the sun and his whole head is a beautiful deep emerald green.


  1. Yikes we did not know that the pigmy shrew had a venomous bite. We learnt something new today. Have a serene Sunday and enjoy some big easy today.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Maybe the big fish in the lake will eat the gold fish. Nice report. Hope you have a good Sunday!

  3. Answering comment Questions is always kinda Difficult... WE tend to go to THEIR Blog and answer... OR now and then we answer the question in our Next post...
    Once I comment on somebuddy's blog... I Almost NEVER go back until they post the next time.

  4. Glad those birds got to nesting! Have a great day!

  5. We had to calm Jakey down when he heard your Mama was a greenie, those are his FAVORITE treat, but he now understands that she is really more of a tree hugger like our Mama. Ummmm, does she really hug trees?? lucky for us, the redwood trees are to big for Mama to embarrass us by hugging like she did when we lived in Texas!

  6. That was cool that the news people followed up on the story! And using your mom's photos was really cool.
    I like your Sunday Snippets - great idea!
    Yours sincerely,
    Margaret Thatcher

  7. I'm so excited for Mr and Mrs. Tuffy! Can't wait to see their babies :)

    Glad you got the news people to share the story. Hopefully th culprit saw the story and realized what they did was wrong.

  8. Snippets is a good idea. We liked the follow ups!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  9. We think your mum is a CONCERNED citizen!

    We wonder what Tufty's babies will look like.

    And we know nothin' about Pigmy Shrews other than they have to eat alot.

    XXXOOO Bella & Roxy

  10. Sunday Snippets sounds like a great way to answer all those questions. We don't often go back to read what may have been commented on our comments so this is great. We learned a lot, especially about the venom of those shrews - can never be too careful.

  11. There is nothing wrong with being a greenie if it means you care about your community. Love Dolly

  12. Crikey ... I try to reply to every comment on my blogs and now I'm finding out no-one reads them. Might have to give that away and do the Sunday snippet thingoe. I've still got a lot to learn about blogville, aye??
    I'm glad something happened about the goldfish episode and the nesting ducks .... Crikey ..... That's exciting!!


Thank you for woofing at us - we read each and every one of them
