Miss Merci's Guest Book

Saturday, March 7, 2009


In honor of the warmest day so far this year, here my mom's latest attempt at getting me to pose as little spring flower. My dad is kinda in the picture and he had to hold me because I felt so silly. I'm really glad they had a good laugh at my cute expense! In the past week I've walked 5 miles! Oh how I am so ready to say goodbye to snow and cold and hello to warm and wonderful!

I also want to give a big wirey hello to my new friends Sally, Penny, Poppy, Patches, Alasandra, Asta, Agatha, Archie and Butchy and Snickers oh and Chance!! It is so fun to see and read about so many fun furry friends! We're getting around to visit each of you as time permits so you'll be hearing from us soon!

Mom has been very busy with my dad tearing out bathrooms and now remodeling them (2 at once) so she has been a little slack at posting. But she took the day off today and has been blogging like a crazy woman :)

Mom is super excited for spring like me because (1) she hates snow and cold and suffers horribly from icky Asthma (2) we have a cabin on a lake (which I've yet to see since she just adopted me in November 2009) and (3) she is a perennial buff and has a triple tier perennial garden in the backyard. Upon inspection through the snow, tips of her dwarf Iris, Coral Bells, Dianthus, and Daisies are all showing green. She split a bunch of lily bulbs last year and moved them all around the garden, so it will be like little presents popping up all over this year!

Plus she put in 2 new perennial gardens at the cabin and that will be so fun for her and my dad to see what came back this season and how many friends came along for the ride. (that happens a lot when you split them if they have trailing roots)

Mom keeps telling me that I'll love going on the boat just like Zoey and Dukie boy did. She knows I don't like water much, but they have a special life jacket for me by "Outward Hound" (modeled by Duke) to wear so If I do decide to jump in the water, I'll be safe. Here is a picture of my best friend Dukie. You've seen other pics of him but I think this one is really silly. He loves the breeze in his face when he is on the boat.

SUPER DUKE! Enjoying fun in the sun on Horseshoe Lake.

Stay tuned for more updates as soon as my mom can figure out where she put her camera as she has only spent the entire day trying to find it. And yes, she looked in the garbage, refrigerator and laundry room.

Butchy and Snickers said...

Hey Merci,
Lucky you, a cabin & boat?? I Butchy LUV to swim. Snickers just learned how to swim 2 summers ago. She likes it some, but doesn't like to stick her head under water. I like to dive in after things like sticks and passing fish, hehehehe. We go to the trout stream at Backbone State Park in Iowa. It's really clear clean water with lots of trout fishies swimming around. You look so cute in your flower! No need to feel silly, Mama puts clothes & costumes on us all of the time. We can hardly wait to see your Mama's flowers & gardens. Our Mama has a lot too. Wonder why she doesn't let us dig in the gardens though?? hmmmmph. Have a great night.
Luv & Wirey Hugs,
Butchy, Snickers, Ruby, Sylvester & Scuby

Hello Merci,

Wow, you are so cute as a flower - my D dresses me up too - but I always make sure I have a look on my face to show her I am not amused.

Your cabin sounds lovely - and three tiers to bury things in! Hope your Mama finds the camera in time to take photos of any new flowers.

Lots of licks

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

WFT = Wirehair Flower Terrier! What a sweet little flower you are! Hootie is at the groomer right now (we are in AZ and we don't do the spring forward thing)getting his hairs cut. It's his first groom in Phoenix so we'll see if they know how to do a Welsh Terrier right! (Snickers sent us here! Glad we came.) Smooches from pooches, BabyRocketDog & Hootie
