Our Curling boys’ secret weapon…

Wohoo! We’re in the final and so is Canada. So Mom’s in for a birthday treat on Saturday. Yay!

Wanna know how they did it? They had some very special help:

Um.. Okay.. Maybe not. But mom had so many giggles imagining this that we had to play along.

Curly purrs,
Virus & Hyssing


Speaking of the pants…

Do you think I would do well on the curling team? We think the pants are fun, but more than anything we think all the crazy attention they’ve gotten is funny!

We think they’re a really great team, and that it’s quite impressive that they’re the only team that are true amateurs and even the crazy pants are bought with their own money from their full time jobs rather than by sponsors.


Sleepy Thursday

Hi guys! I just got back to Mom yesterday after a little holiday with PA. His birthday was on Monday and I didn’t want to leave him all alone and everything! Today Mom handed in her first obligatory essay of the season and I helped as much as I could with the finishing touches. Now we’re both relaxing on the couch with curling semi finals – first the ladies (Sweden – China and Canada – Switzerland) and later tonight we’ll see our boys in action (Norway – Switzerland and Canada – Sweden).

Keep your paws crossed for Norway and Canada – we want to see those teams in the final on Saturday. Saturday is Mom’s birthday so we hope she gets the dream final as a birthday present. At least Auntie and Mom is planning a fairly early dinner out before going home and watching the bronze final. Mom will watch the final, too, which starts at midnight. She said Auntie could go home if she got sleepy, though. BOL!

I think I’ll just share my lucky snores!


Almost Wordless Wednesday

Auntie and Mom had a walk down memory lane today. Largely laughing at me and Fenris (well, themselves too).. Here’s a good one for you:

Another wordy part – Hyssing is most impressed with you all and is thinking of going into a mind control business since surprisingly many of you guessed it was a GREEN marker. Let’s just say Mom and I have been laughing a lot.


Can you guess?

Mom said you guys might be able to guess what color her chosen marker of the day was just by sharing a few pix of ME. I don’t know why – is this some sort of Hyssing-aided mind reading or something?

She sometimes accuses me of playing with her marker, but this is even weirder IMO.

So? Did it work? Did it work? Can you guess it?


PeeEss: We just got the very sad news that Chef’s papa has been diagnosed with cancer. Will you please stop by and give them your support? They really need it now.

Show us your toothbrush!

Our buddy Brutus reminded everydoggie that February is National Pet Dental Health Month. Now we’re not in the right nation (well, technically you’re all in the wrong ones and we’re in the right one) so it’s no wonder we hadn’t heard of it, but we’re always happy to embrace a good cause!

Mom brushes our toofies every day. Well – because we usually do it every day we don’t bother to fuss if there’s a day or two we don’t get it done – but every day is the general rule. Being a senior dog now (in years, but not at heart) I’ve had a couple of toofies removed last fall, but generally I’ve been known for my fresh breath and kisses. We think it’s very important to brush and also to get the toofies checked properly by a vet, especially when you’re an older dog. Very, very many dogs have painful teeth and gums and most go unnoticed, unfortunately.

So now we encourage you all – show us your toothbrush! BOL!

We’ve actually showed you our tooth brush cup before – still cute, right? The baby brush is for the kitties, the middle one is mine and the last one is Mom’s. She keeps our toothbrushes together. Seriously.

Here’s a close-up of the baby brush – it’s actually the one that works the best on tiny kitty teeth. And thankfully we’re all macho enough to pull off pink toothbrushes. The cup is the only thing that clashes with mom’s pink bathroom – it’s just too cool to leave out.

This is our enzyme paste that we use for brushing and then as a treat for being good and having our toofies brushed. Mom uses minty tooth paste for some reason. I love mint but Mom says it’s not good for me and this is yummy so I won’t complain.

Oh – and we want to say



Seems some thieves are more sensible than others – got this comment to the previous post this morning. Great to wake up to some good news for a change!

Claire has posted on facebook that all the dogs have been found and are at the SPCA in Montreal for the night. It seems they were left tied up in a park, for which everyone is grateful.
