Fridays Flowers and Stuff

The humans are finally back from Bar Harbor, Maine. We did't get to talk to owr friends dat much when dey were away so we has lots of catchin up to do. And, No, dey did not bring us back any lobster dis time eifur. Dey ate it all there. Plus dey ate a squillion blooberrries. Next year we might get to go wif dem an check owt da place coz Mom wants to live in Bar Harbor. Den I finks we can get all da lobster we wants.

BB&A Mom: Here are a few photos from the area. I was practicing travel photography for the online class I'm taking now. As soon as I go through the hundreds of pics I took I'll be creating a gallery online and will post a link if anyone is interested. Bar Harbor is a photographer's dream.

Flowers from Thuya Gardens in Northeast Harbor. The gardens are a blend of semi-formal English border beds and Maine woodlands situated on a granite hillside overlooking Northeast Harbor. Absolutely beautiful and so organized. If only I had the time to make my own flower beds look that good!

Frenchman's Bay right across the way from where we stayed. The smell of the ocean combined with the scent of pine trees is heaven. The sail boat in the picture is the Margaret Todd. We didn't take any rides this time because the weather was not that great all day.

On the way home I just happened to catch this out of the corner or my eye and managed to get a quick pic. Some beauty was getting a nice up front view and ride to somewhere. Once home we had to do something with all the blueberries we bought as we left Bar Harbor. Whole wheat blueberry muffins. The pie is next!
I'm glad to be back home with my furkids because I missed them like crazy. But, sigh. Why do vacations go by so unbelievably fast?

Thankful for our Health

Since the day the awful v.e.t stoled seven of mine teef I haf been fankful dat I haf any teef left at all. Da vet lady said "yoo'll be back and we'll take da rest someday." Um. No. We won't be back and mine teef will be fine. Dis teef fing just put Mommy ofur da edge as far as what to feed us.

Now we are eating raw food. We still likes owr stinky goodness but dat will end up mostly being a treat (we still get canned Instinct or Wellness). We get raw chicken once a day or sometimes we gets lamb chops (when dey am on sale) an if da neybor gets any more vishus deer some day den we will get some of dat.

As yoo can see it takes a lot of chewin' an chawin' to eat dat chicken. It am lots of fun to eat raw meat. We gets to naw at da bone an stuff. What's dis haf to do wif teef yoo want to know? It helps to clean owr teef clean coz we actually chews somefin. And NO, dry food duz not do da same fing. Mom duzn't efun like to say da "k" werd - |kibble| coz dat's just BAD stuff. Yoo can read about feeding dry food and why not to feed dry food here.

Mom had two male cats from before who both ended up wif surgery to correct urinary track blockages they got from eating cheap stinky goodness and dry food. One died from lymphoma (HUGE tumor at the injection site for vaccines and dat's why we don't get vaccines unless absolutely necessary like rabies and dat's it) and the other ended up dying from complications due to diabetes. He had flaky skin and what she now knows were allergies to da food he wuz eating.

Mom now reads efurryting about what to feed cats and about why so many cats are dying from human diseases. Da latest book she read is The Veterinarians' Guide to Natural Remedies for Cats by Martin Zucker. Dare are all kinds of recommendations on what to feed us. Plus Angie's new holistic v.e.t. she went to said it was fine for us to eat da chicken. We wuz going to use dat meat grinder but he said we could just eat a cut up chicken leg and dat's what we do.

Mine teef look good, bouf me an Angie's breaf smells 100% better an I lost one and a half pounds. Look! I efun haf a waist now but I lost mine love handles. Do yoo finks Powder will still like me wifout dem?

Loud noises scare me and half da woofies on da street were efun scared. Da last boomy fings dat da beans dat lives behind us fired off looked like dey were going to come right in da window! Where's my Powder? I need someone to come and keep me company in mine office. I'm not coming owt till I know it's safe.
