In case you didn’t get the memo, we’re honoring our departed friend Thor in part by carrying on his Thorsday tradition. Y’all know it’s still dogs on thursday and little friday, but we’ll be calling it Thorsday indefinitely, ‘kay?
A peek at our yummy cake
It’s no small irony – because nothing was small about our big friend Thor – that on the very day he left us to go play with Mugsy and Fred and the other pets across the Rainbow Bridge, Thor’s sweet mom baked us a cake for Mama’s birthday, and yesterday the Brown Truck man at work brought Mama said cake, just in time for my belated birthday celebration.
So, thank you Miss Marjie for our scrumptious cake that was made with special consideration for Sissy and her food issues. We all had a piece of that yummy cake, right after Dadaw and I took care of the big ol’ copperhead in MY PEN.
Hrmph. Mama won’t share the photo Dadaw took of the beast. Something about too many of you don’t like snakes. Whatever. I wasn’t scared; I backed that thing right up under the deck stairs and yelled at it and yelled at it to leave until Dadaw came and made me come inside. Then HE ran it out into the yard and cut it to bits with with a shovel. Mama was all smothery-mothery when Dadaw made me stay inside after he “rescued” me; she had to touch every hair on my body and even places I don’t have hair to assure herself that I was just fine.
Hrmph. Where does she think I got my dainty and tough composition from?! Mama is still plenty tough, but she also looks so ladylike when she’s dressed up… I’m a cracker-Jack Russell Terrier after all!
Doesn't it look good?! No, I wouldn't stand and pose because I knew mean Mama was trying to take my pretty from me!
Anyway, in honor of my day, Auntie G also sent pressies for all of us. Mama and I are fighting over the necklace. It’s tiny, so it must be mine, right?! But no, mean ol’ Mama put it in HER jewelry chest and has it around HER big ol’ neck today. Hrmph. (Why yes, I am saying that a lot today. I’m indignant. Yes, that’s the word for it, Sissy… trust me. Just go back to using that purple nail file Auntie G sent you…)
You’ll have to click over to Mama’s blog later today to see more of the gifties. I suppose I should also show you the PANK frame she bought off Etsy for me. The nice folks – Sadie, her human and the cats – at The Beaded Tail tempted Mama with it on one of their friday features.
So, happy Thorsday everyone. We should all be so gentle and good, at least on Thorsdays…
