Xena's Story Part 2

Xena Schnauzer Warrior Princess and Lucy

If you missed Xena’s story, Part 1, please click here.

Lucy: Xena, as your most excellent editor, I must nudge you to write the second part of your story. Your fans are waiting, and you don’t want to disappoint them. As for me, I need a nap. Why don’t you do that while I sleep?

Xena: You’re right, Luce. Let me think. *5 minutes later, which in dog time is at least half an hour* OK, here’s what happened next…

Xena’s story: A Dog and her Cat Friends, still with no Plot Hounds, Part Two

Summer slid into fall, and fall into winter, and the Siamese cats Sho and Tye missed their new schnauzer friend named Xe. “I want to go find Xe in the great USA,” meowed Tye. “She’s my only schnauzer friend – my only doggie friend, really. And we’re like sisters now.”

Come spring, Tye was…

Sunday Selfie with

Another fine day here at Fort Meezer.  Aha, the sun is ray-ing down on the deck and we’re all sittin’ pretty out in the fresh air.  You ever notice how the world seems happier when the sun shines?                                                                     

How rude!! Budd I was just going to have a drink when you plowed in here like a lizard slitherin’ into the sun. Really!  I shouldn’t have sneaked some of mom’s popcorn…it made me thirsty.  She really should put butter on it.  Everything tastes better with butter.

TYEBE…..POWDER BLUE
BUDD……GIMME GREEN
SHOKO…..EASY BLACK

We are also joining Gingersnap and the other furries in the Blue family for the  Sunday Selfie on The Cat On My Head.  It’s sunny here but still cold….-10C today.  We all went outside cause the sun has a lot of heat in it so it feels kitty warm on us,

Even Budd is out sopping up the rays.

I was taking in the same rays.  I like the cool snow on my butt.

Mom says that the clock went spinning  around  for an hour last night and when it finished dancing, we were an hour later on the clock.  We sprung ahead…MOL  It’s far from Spring here though.

Shoko is waiting to utter her words of wisdom for the week. Take it away Shooo….

“Kittens are the comedians of the feline world.”

 

Xena Writes a Story on Dr. Seuss Day

Xe’s visit was so fantastic and quite an eye opener. Who knew woofies could be so much fun. We just had to repost and give you Xena’s link so you can read the entire story.  The link is https://lexitheschnauzer.wordpress.com/2020/03/02/xena-writes-a-story-on-dr-seuss-day/

Xena Schnauzer Warrior Princess and Lucy

Lucy: Hi Xena. Whatcha doing? You look like you’re up to something.

Xena: I’m thinking. It’s Dr. Seuss Day. He wrote fun stories and poems. You know Angel Lexi was an author, too. She wrote a whole book about her life and adventures. I’m thinking maybe I could write a little story.

Lucy: You’ll never know unless you try. Like Dr. Seuss said, “Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!” So, how are you going to do it?

Xena: I’m thinking maybe I’ll dogtate it into one of those dogtation machines. Then, if there’s a mistake, I can blame the machine.

Lucy: Sounds like a plan. Have you come up with a story?

Xena: Yep. Here goes: My name is Xena Schnauzer Warrior Princess. Xena for short. Xe for shorter. I have two Siamese cat…

Awwww….Feline Dr. Seuss Day

I decided to honour Dr. Seuss by taking part in his special day.  You know he was a imaginative man….he looks kinda odd but he was an amazing dude.   Shoko told me once that peeps that look different are usually fun.  I believe her. 

 Comedy Plus’s Aww….Monday is the host for Dr, Seuss Day, so bop on over and visit some of your friends that are participating. Click on the name or the badge.

 

Dr. Seuss gave us many books like the Cat in the Hat.

Here I am, the cat in the hat!! mol                                                               

I could catch these fishies….they’re my speed…

Dr. Seuss, a clever dude, was responsible for many positive quotes like:

Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.  This is an excellent SPARK for today.  SPARK is a way to start the week on a positive note then by next Monday you’ll be feeling a tad beaten up and need another SPARK.  Life is just like that.

 

Have a mew-velous Dr. Seuss Day.

Why did the Cat in the Hat put the letter “M” into the freezer?

To turn “ice” into “mice”

Mom had a great time shooting whatever cropped up this month.  So there were several fails.

Here’s Shoko grabbing some water while mom made her nothing but a blur.

Shoko became a blur and mom chopped off most of her head too.

Mom decided her foot should be honoured in the picture. Take it away mom. It’s all about ME…not you.

Those are mom’s worst pictures.  Hope you enjoyed our mom’s klutzy moments. mol

We each will take a sentence and fill it in.  Ready one and all?  Let’s do this.

1. I know spring is almost here when…….THE KITTIES CAN FIND AND WALK ON THE RAISED GARDEN.

                                                                           

2. I find…..CHANGES….confusing.  FOR EXAMPLE, IF DAD FEEDS ME IN A DIFFERENT AREA OF THE HOUSE…..IS THIS MY FOOD OR SOMEBODY ELSE’S?

 

3. I have a strong opinion on…..WHO IS BOSS KITTY IN THIS HOUSEHOLD.

                                                                   

4. PEANUT BUTTER….. is the strangest thing I have ever eaten.  I DIDN’T”T LIKE THE LICK I HAD SO I DIDN’T HANG AROUND FOR MORE.  THAT”S WHAT STEALING GETS YA.

                                                                                         

Thankful Poetic Thursday at Fort Meezer

Look at us mom….we’re sittin’ pretty in our own space.

I have the top tier. There is nothing I miss. Any flea ridden introoders are toast. This time of year hardly anyone walks down the street but those monsters with rounded wheels keep coming.

SHoko doesn’t care who’s outside unless they’re in her yard. Budd doesn’t bother with scary outside. He is on the look out for anyone eating.

I’m mewing for everybody to get out and enjoy the sun before it snows again.

This is so invigorating, eh Budd? What do you mean you’ve had enough? You just came out.


That’s it Shoko. Woah, it’s pretty bright. Your eyes are watering. Well. we’re not used to the sun so bright. It’s a wonder we don’t all run and hide from that big ball in the sky. mol

What’s this I see?  Is it a bug…..in this weather?  Oh no!                                                               

It has 6 heads and a dime on his nose! His arms are everywhere…..a monster! Run!


I’m stayin’ right here out of its way. What an ugly creature! It was a mouse? Mice aren’t that ugly. It doesn’t have 6 heads and there is no dime on his nose…..he has some snow on his face. I think Budd’s calling me inside….

OK Tyebe, be a wimp! Today is Brian’s Thankful Thursday so we are joining him. Click on his name or the badge and join us.                                                                                    
We are thankful for such sunny days.  We’re looking forward to Spring when we have gorgeous days like today.

Today is also Poetic Thursday with One Spoiled Cat blog.  Once again click on the name of the blog or the badge to see others practicing their proses.  Here is the picture for today provided by  Angel Sammy.                                                                       

 

Excuse these two for they know not what they do
They are stuck to each other with crazy glue
The man is aware only of the weight he has to bear
While the lady is drunk as a skunk with not a care
Lady in blACK struggles to remain standing upright
The guy looks conceited and the  woman is very uptight
While her leg points upwards to give her balance.
Giving me a chance to wonder is this a dance?

MOL…this was fun. Thanks Angel Sammy and Teddy for the chance to express myself.

TYEBE…..POWDER BLUE
SHOKO…..CINDER BLACK
