Xena’s Story with Input from Sho Part 4a

Please read the first parts of the story under Xena’s Story in our pages.  The story will make sense.  Now when we last left Sho she had chosen a fantabulous Magic Carpet and looked at the map so she knew how to get to the United States.  The shortest way was to go through the Gulf of Siam into the Indian Ocean and then make a sharp left to the Pacific Ocean.  Sho also noted that if she turned right from the Indian Ocean she could travel the Atlantic and…oh look, there’s the country of Canada.  Sho dreamed of going to Canada one day, that’s why she named the hut Canada….just to have a piece of this huge country near.                                                                                         

I’ll take the long way and shake any bugs out of this Magic Carpet. I better use warp drive for half the trip or I’ll be months getting there.                                                                           


I never imagined the ocean had this much water….The tag around my neck states who I am and my next of kin so if anything happens hopefully Tye  will be notified.  If anybody can find her and Xena.  “You’ll be be fine…let’s not get maudlin ole gal.” Who said that? Is there a freeloader I’m carrying to the States?   “hehe…Heaven’s no. I’m the CADA….that stands for Canada Activated Device Assistant, the Genie installed in the Magic Carpet before you left.” “Some assistant you are CADA…where are we?  We must be close to Canada but there’s nothing but blue for as far as I can see.” “We’re getting pretty close to NewFoundland in Canada.” REALLY!! You flew past the United States.” “I did.” Let’s drop down and step on Canadian soil.  After landing the Magic Carpet, Sho walked around til she met a dog…a Newfoundland dog.  This dude was huge….looked more like the pictures she’d seen of a black bear but he seemed like a happy fellow.  Sho padded up to the huge dog and the dog said, “Ow’s she cuttin’, me cocky? Sho stepped backwards in surprise.  Is this guy swearing at me? she thought.  She realized there may be cultural differences but this dude was….really different!  Sho chose to treat him as a potential friend as it’s harder to get mad and bite at a happy dudette.  Sho plastered a warm smile on her face and said, “How are you, my friend?”  To which the dog dude replied, “Aye, that’s what I says.”                                                                                   

Sho told the Newfie dog her name and that she was on her way to the United States to find her sister that left there home in Siam to see her dog friend Xe in Tennis-See. The Newfie dog introduced himself as Buddha.  Buddha said he’d heard about a Siamese cat that had been thrown into an Internment Camp when arrived in the United States for just being Siamese…..most of the Canadian furries knew about this one little cat struggling to be free.  He said her name was….Tye.  “That’s my sister!!   “Go awn wich ya!” said Buddha.  Sho liked being with Buddha in Canada but Tye needed her so she must continue her odyssey.   Buddha slapped a paw on Sho’s back and hollered,   “May the wind aways blow in your back.”  Sho understood Buddha and waved bye to her only Canadian friend.  Up she and CADA went headed for Texas.


This is a lonely looking place CADA.  The cities are massive here so we’ll stay along the backroads.  Let’s go ask this horse if she’s seen Xe and Tye.                                                         Sho eased the Magic Carpet down and introduced herself.  The horse told Sho she was called A horse with No Name but her friend’s called her, Ho No.  Ho No told Sho about helping a white cat  and a dog get to Georgia and said he’d show them the way to Georgia.  What if I lose you cause I’m in the air and you’re on the ground.  That’s easy enough Sho, just start singing, “Georgia on my Mind,” and I will come galloping into view cause “all  roads lead back to you.”   This sounded like a great plan to Sho so she leaped onto the Magic Carpet following Ho NO.

TO BE CONTINUED….Will Sho find Tye and Xe or will Ho NO lead them on a wild horse chase?

Xena Schnauzer Warrior Princess and Lucy

Lucy: Xena, you’re on a roll, so take it away!

Xena: Take it away where? What are you talking about, Lucy? I’m watching to see where this squirrel goes.

Xena’s story: A Dog and her Cat Friends, with another Plot Hound, Part Four

With a newly-found resolve, Xe and Tye headed in the general direction they thought was toward Tennessee. It was early morning, so they kept the sun on their right as they walked. From old habits in Siam, where Tye was from, they kept away from the water as they traveled, so nothing could…

Two Siamese Cats and their Dog Friend Part 3a

This is a continuation of Xena’s Story at https://lexitheschnauzer.wordpress.com/.  Read Xena’s story and Tye’s tale will make more sense.  Click the blog address and enjoy.

Geez, I miss that white tornado.  Didn’t think I would, she talks non stop and is ready to play at the drop of a paw.  Taking in the sun and laying back is getting old very quickly.                                                                                

Squish the Siamese elephant, wandered by and Sho confided how much she missed Tye. Squish, a very understanding elephant, had an idea “Go see Tye and perhaps you’d be happier over there and want to stay.”  What a fantabulous idea.  Tye will be happy to see me.   “Thanks Squish.”                                                               


“No problem Sho. You need to be with Tye.  I feel her and XE are having hard times over there and she’s never been parted from you before.  Tye borrowed a phone from a cool lady at the Internment Camp not the ICY lady and called me to let me know she was forced to eat rotten vegetables in the Internment Camp.   The paperwork for their release was being worked on as we spoke.  Tye said XE arrived to help but was panicking cause now that she was here she didn’t know the way to Tennis-See other than walking through Texas.  So, Tye wanted me to follow the highway near Houston and look for them walking home.  Seems vague, Squish.

Tye used to play with Omar’s kids and she said they were little terrors that would give crappy old toys for any candy.  They learned this behaviour somewhere  and she says the nuts don’t fall far from the tree so I’ll be on the look out for Omar the Siamese Shiftless Carpetbagger tricks.  Tye is always on my mind…I must hurry and be with her and Xe.                                                                  “Let’s go, Squish, and see what we can find in the Magic Carpets around here.” Sho brought out the ladder and climbed up on Squish’s back and they headed for the village.  Squish had a sensitive back since Tye had done the Siamese dance for rain  on her back.

They hit 2 flying carpet outlets and were disappointed in the quality of the carpet threads. Then they hit Omar’s Emporium. Omar’s had revved up carpets but they wrinkled up during flight so it was uncomfortable sitting.  The wrinkles also made steering a hazard. No seat belts and the threads were not water proof. They were inexpensive but dang nab it, they looked cheap and wobbly.                                                                 

Next stop Aladdin’s Magic Carpets.                                                                   A huge Genie welcomed me inside.  I told him I wanted a thick, sturdy Magic Carpet with all the safety precautions.  No souped up piece of crap as I was flying to America to see friends and the object was to arrive in one piece.  Gene, the Genie, found the most superb carpet.  Luxurious seat belts, with a relaxing cruising speed and the “paw to the fiber count” of 300 MPH.  An instant sale.                                                             

Sho put the ladder up to Squish’s back and leaped on. “Sorry Squish. I was so happy about our new Magic Carpet I forgot to suck in my claws.” Sho said apologetically.

Sho thought of hot and tired Xe and Tye pawing their way across Texas to Xe’s home in Tennis… See.   Stupid name for a state as it brought up visions of everyone playing tennis in short skirts and funny hats.  Sho reprimanded herself for being judgemental…..this was the time to accept whatever cultural habits that the States has.  Tye would be delighted Sho was going to be headed over to the States.  Sho had to pack up Canada and have Squish water the plants everyday.  Sho would let Squish know what was happening.  Now, up and away and hope Tye and Xe find their way safe and easy.                                                           

TO BE CONT’D..Join Sho as she continues her adventures to cross the Atlantic and get to Tennis….See.

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.


Cathy Keisha from Stunning Keisha blog  put down some words that we must match up with the letter from our first name.  I’m Tyebe so everything must start with a “T.”  Got it,,,,you’ll see what I mean..

WEAR  –   T-Shirt

DRINk –    Tea

PLACE  –    Thailand

FOOD  –    Turkey

ANIMAL –  Termite


MALE NAME – Tyrone






There you have my “T” words.  Thanks CK that was fun.

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….
