Since it has been quite a long time since we have been active, we are going to be Under Construction for a while - trying new fonts, designs, and updating our sidebar stuff. Hopefully we will get it how we like it soon so it won't change too much!

Also - Can someone tell me how to get rid of the giant gap below this notice - I cannot figure out how to do it - thanks!!

Friends on Friday

So after a sad week this week I wanted to post about two new friends who make us smile. Well, really it is one family with two blogs.

First, we want to introduce Twinkie from Twinkie Tiny Dog|Teacup Chihuahua. Twinkie is a tiny rescue dog from Los Angeles. She has three good legs (and one not so good), but is still a spunky fun loving little girl. She lives with her sisters Frankie and Linguini and not only is there a great book about her but she also has her own advice column, which she posts every Tuesday! Recently, however, Twinkies home has had some invaders, who can be found at...

"Pregnant Cat Info, which is a blog following Farrah, a pregnant feral that was taken in by Twinkies mom, and her 5 adorable kittens. The kittens are about three weeks old today (I am writing this on Thursday - tomorrow will be three weeks). There are Pebbles and Puddles, two calico sisters, Trouble, a tuxie who they believe is male, and a fawn and fawn and white kitten - they don't have names because they are just not sure if they are boys or girls yet! They are all adorable and making great progress!

So, if you haven't met them, stop by - they are both great blogs and they will bring a smile to your face.

Also, I want to announce that on Sunday, Virgil will be turning two! We know he has a lot of great company, including America, so we are gussing a lot of you will be busy, but if you have the chance and can stop by, we are having a small get together. Since Virgil is the reason we started the blog, we wanted to celebrate his birthday with a little party. And yes, I know we didn't have a party for Barney but we will next year!

Virgil the patriot! :) I love it when they turn two. It's right around the time you know what they're going to be and look like for the rest of their lives.
I'm not wishing you a happy birthday yet, Virgil. I can wait, but I'm looking forward to your party. Besides, I need to start getting used to cats and cat parties, don't you think?
Thank you for a sweet introduction to my blog. I don't know what the other blog is about. BOL
