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!

Hi Everyone! Welcome to our Friends on Friday post! Today I am doing it a bit different, because we are only doing one friends blog, and we have pictures too. Our Friday Friends this week are Jake and Fergie from Two Special Wires. Jake and Fergie are both rescued Wire Fox Terriers, and they live with their mom out west in the mountains. They had really crummy lives before they went to live with their mom and "Their Girl" (their mom's daughter) but now they have wonderful, loving happy lives. Their posts are always so wonderful and touching and I just love to read them. Jake is the younger of the two, but he has lived with their mom longer, and Fergie, well she is learning from them that life can be filled with love, and she has made a lot of progress - even though we started to follow their blog a while after they started it, well, she has made a ton of progress and every time I read about something she learned (like the first time she played with a toy) I smile. So, if you haven't met them, be sure to stop by. They will really touch your heart.

So, now for the pictures. See, Jake, Fergie and their mom and Their Girl took a trip this summer, and they were passing through our area. I had hoped to be able to meet them but unfortunately the timing didn't work out and we didn't meet up (though I am convinced it will happen some day). So, their mom emailed me and said she had some things to send us - and they came the other day! So I thought it would be fun to show what they sent!

Here is the package (on top of the boogie mat) - hm, wonder what it could be?

It was a package inside a package - Barney and Gus decided to investigate

Yep, it is for us!

See all the little packages - they are clear stones with a picture of each kitty - they even made one for sweet Floyd. Again, they had to be investigated.

And Jake and Fergie Floof!

Oh, and French for Cats - Ooh la la! I hope they learn it better than they have learned English (or at least better than they have learned "get down" and "don't do that")

Here is a close up of one of the stones (it is still in the package because Brad was at a board meeting when we opened the parcel, and I wanted him to see them - they are shiny so tough to get a good picture of because of the flash)

And of course, the bag it all came in proved to be very entertaining too - Stella loved chewing on the handles!

So, we wanted to send a HUGE thank you to Jake and Fergie and their mom and Their Girl - it was so sweet of them to think of us and make those stones with all the pictures. I really adore them and plan to put them someplace very special (or carry them with me - I haven't decided yet because I kind of like the idea of always having the kitties with me, but I also want them to be somewhere safe!) We just adore all of you and these are all so special for us!

Well, that is all for today - don't forget that Meow Like a Pirate Day is on Sunday - we will be doing a special post that day! And oh, I am getting more caught up with visiting so hopefully if I haven't been by yet I will make it over today (I am going alphabetically and the second half of the alphabet seems to have a lot more blogs that I follow than the first half - and the first half took most of yesterday!)

Have a great weekend!

What a thoughtful gift! It's too bad you couldn't meet up with Jake and Fergie in purrson but it's nice you can sniff their floof! We saw their visit with Khyra too.

That is such a wonderful and considerate gift! We like that they sent floof too - we've never thought of that!

Gattina said...

That sounds like Christmas ! The book "french for cats" must be very funny ! Kim and Pookie had to learn to meow in French when they arrived from London ! I don't know if Arthur and Rosie learned English from them;

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Those stones are great! We love parcels...usually there's a good box or bag involved.

Happy weekend to you. Aren't packages fun? I went to meet Jake and Fergie, and I've decided they would make the perfect home for one of the kitties we want to get placed. It's obvious Jake needs a kitty of his own. :-)

Nico, Simon and JayJay said...

Wonderful presents - we especially like the little stones with the kitties pictures in them!! How thoughtful!!

We are struggling to get caught up on our blogs, too! It seems our secretary had to run errands yesterday evening & all of today - we think she needs to get her priorities straight!!

ps. Thanks so much for the purrs for Simon - he is feeling MUCH better now!!
