Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone!  We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop .


   Brody is thankful that I gave him some treats even though he couldn’t figure out how to get any out of this penguin that Grammie gave them for Christmas.  Sammy figured it out and Brody slapped him.

I am thankful to my friend Jamie for updating my blog theme and improving the look of it. If anyone needs any graphic designing I highly recommend him, to visit DiverseDesigning, click here. 

We are also joining  Sammy’s Poetry Day. Here is my poem to go with this photo prompt provided by Teddy’s mom:

I know you are the equivalent of a pup,

but its about time you stood up. 

Now could you give this ball a toss,
sorry if it smells, I don’t brush or floss.
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and my co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.  The linky stays open until Wednesday night.

  1. Hooray for friends that have tech knowledge Your blog looks nice!!

    That poem made me giggle!! Its so cute!
    Dogs and their slobbery balls,Hah!
    MJF made a lot of his basket and volley balls look like that, too…all squished and easy to grab….but then he would rip them up, too!!

  2. I have been able to see your header every day for the last few days after months of not being able to see it. I still can’t see comments until the following day though. That is a cute poem for a cute photo.

  3. That is a fun poem!
    Our cats had a little treat dispenser kind of like that too one time, and they didn’t quite figure out what to do with it. haha. 🙂

  4. Brody will figure out how to get to the treats. It takes longer for some. Cute.

    I do love your new look. It’s amazing.

    Your poem made me laugh. So true.

    I’m all ready for the Friendly Fill-ins.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday, Ellen. Big hug to you and scritches to all the kitties. ♥

  5. Your blog looks terrific! We LOVE the poem! Cinnamon gets her balls so disgustingly slobbery and even dry they feel sticky. I wash them all the time and the poem made me laugh out loud! And Brody, it takes time to figure those treat things out…we are sure you will get it all figured out!

  6. The photo through me for a loop at first as the ball looks almost like elephant skin in black and white.


    Brody slapping Sammy made me laugh, too, as I am sure it was just cattitude and not dangerous. 🙂 Be well, my dears!

  7. I can’t help but picture Sammy and Brody with the penguin. We have similar occurrences going on here in our house lol Recently, it was the fact that Dav girl realized that she could get Pippen cat excited by playing with her peek-a-feather toy.
