International Furbaby Weekend

It’s snowing. It’s been snowing all day. I’ll repeat that last part with the correct emphasis; ALL DAY!

::sigh:: I am sick to death of all of this snow. I mean, it’s the end of February. Opening Day is less than six weeks away! Curse the Ground Hog! Note to Buckeye Chuck and all his furry buds – USE YOUR TEETH! When your slumber is disturbed on as chilly morning because the sunlight is shining in your eyes and you see a hand reaching to grab you BITE IT! You go back to sleep without seeing your shadow and we all do a happy dance because spring is coming sooner rather than later. To allow yourself to be pulled out of bed to see your shadow when God gave you teeth to fend off the intruders is just a flagrant abuse of power.

Actually, this year it would have been kinder to bite that hand and send the shadow to Vancouver so they wouldn’t have had slush issues during the beginning of the Olympics. Selfish ground hogs.

But this blog entry is not to grouse about the ground hogs. As an optimist, I may hate the snow that’s been taunting me all day, but it’s keeping the people who clean the snow employed. Food delivery services make more when the weather is icky too and the drivers get tipped better when it’s a snowy day. I will remind the delivery people to drive safer in the bad weather and to the people ordering - tip like you didn't want to go our and drive in it!

But this blog is about an important holiday weekend! This weekend is International Furbaby Weekend! It’s a holiday I just created to get over the snowy day blues. This holiday is all about showing off your Furkids! In honor of the holiday weekend, I want you to leave a comment telling us about your furbaby, linking to pictures of your four-legged domestic companions or to your blog post about your pets and this holiday!

Here are our kids. I just did a page for each of them for my 2010 scrapbook with recent photos, so it works to be just in time for the Holiday!

Baggle is our senior cat, the retired alpha who retains his rule at the food bowl!

Kaline is the Queen. She’s kind to Baggle in letting him remain “Lord of the Food” and kind to Carla too, most of the time.

Carla is the baby of the family. She’ll be 2 in September. Don’t let her adult build fool you! She still has a lot of kitten left in her and she is always starving for attention!

Thanks for the neat wordart. What a wonderful idea for a holiday! I shall have to take a couple more photos of my Tootsie so that I can make a new layout of her.

Hang on a bit tighter to that snow, Nani. It's already reached here. Everything has a brand new coating of snow now. I'm with you - sick of the snow already. Hopefully, it won't last very long, and it won't drop too much on us. Thanks for the terrific offer. Gotta go get some photos now. Have a fantastic day, hugs, Edna B.

Hi -- I am always happy to find someone celebrating their furbabies! Ours are Catster, are yours? Actually I'm writing because I'm being told the password is incorrect even though I know I'm using the right code. Help!! Thanks!

Irenchen said...

Thanks for the WA´s. You made wonderful pages. Happy weekend

Nani said...

The passwords at 4-shared are case-sensitive, so if you aren't doing the copy and paste on the pass word, make sure it's capital P-u and r four times.

Hope that helps with the password troubles!

I also hope everyone, and their four-legged domestic companions are having a great International Furbaby Weekend!

Sarah said...

Wow, thanks for that super-quick response, Nani. Still no joy, though. I tried a second browser just in case it was a Firefox issue. No luck with Opera or Safari. I used the capital P, u, and 4 r's. :>((( I LOVE this word art!!

Nani said...

Sarah, send me an email at chroniclesofnani at gmail dot com (hyperlink is in the bulletin board) and I'll make sure you get the word art!
