HAPPY BIRTHDAY USA (early)

GOOD MORNING ALL!!!



OK HERE IS THE DEAL...
Mom's 'puter is 7 years old and as she says it has been a good one up until about 2 weeks ago when she found out it was running on 25% memory (kind of like she is, MOL). CAN YOU ALL SAY 
SLOW
 So anyway it prompted her to get a move on something she had planned to do later. Mom took my G-pa's 4 year old computer to see the Geek Squad for a check up and thorough cleaning. Gpa did not have a virus protection on it.  YAY Geek Squad they added a virus protection, updated MSword, Picasa, flashy box software and several other things.  Originally mom was going to try to set up the new 'puter here; however, since she is running on 25% memory she decided to let Geek Squad do that for her.  They are coming out today at 1 pm to set up the new 'puter and transfer data from old faithful.   Mom is anticipating a slight learning curve as she gets adjusted to the new 'puter.  Hopefully we'll be back up and running by Thursday or Friday....BUT JUST IN CASE...
 HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY

TUESDAY TALE: 2 Kinds of Thunder

Last Friday when Mom pre-posted this about a t-storm we did not know how very sick our sweet friend was..... 
Thunder and his Woo sibs have made us LOL/MOL for many years...and we thank them.  


TODAY WE DEDICATE THIS POST ABOUT THUNDER TO OUR FAVORITE
THUNDER DUNDER
SOFT, SWEET
HANDSOME AND PRECIOUS
RUN FREE
CHASE BUTTERFLIES, NAP IN SUN PUDDLES
and most of all roll in the mud puddles!
WITH LOVE 
MADI AND MOM
*********************

LAST FRIDAY NIGHT I HEARD
LOTS OF RUMBLING, CLAPPING AND BANGING.  I WAS ON MY CAT TREE SNOOPERVISING DIN-DIN PREP.  THERE WAS A THUNDER BOOMER ON THE HORIZON.
A TREE IS NOT THE SAFEST PLACE TO BE DURING A STORM

SO I SAT BY WATER FOUNTAIN....I LOVE MY FOUNTAIN
THE BOOMING BECAME LOUDER.  


 LO AND BEHOLD THE BOTTOM LITERALLY FELL OUT OF THE SKY, THE NOISE WAS DEAFENING

BEING A CREATURE OF  SUPERIOR INTELLIGENCE
I SOUGHT SHELTER IN AN INTERIOR ROOM 
WITH NO WINDOWS

MOM HERE: TRUE STORY.  I WAS ABLE TO CAPTURE MADI'S LOVE OF A T-STORM
WITH MY iPad.  She has two places she likes to 
go during a storm.  The other one is 1/2 up the stairs...we call her a step-kitty.  I guess she thinks if the house floods she can run upstairs.

MEET MY CABINET: DA WEENIES OF FLORIDA

AMBER AND MAX
COMMISSIONERS OF GAMES



Hi...We will answer the questions right from this email.  I will enlist the help of my brudder Max (DaOdderWeenie) to serve as Game Commissioner of Blogville so he will answer the questions too.  My answers will be in PURPLE for girls and Max will answer in BLUE for boys!


1. Please introduce yourself(selves), tell us your age and a very special trait.
A.  My name is AMBER and I'm 9 1/2 years young.  My Dad calls me SCOOTER because when I was just a wee pup, I loved to scoot around on my butt.  The name stuck to me like glue.  I only had an itchy butt, Dad!  What would you do?

AMBER PLAYING DRESSING UP 

B.  My name is MAX and since I was Amber's littermate, I guess I'm 9 1/2 years young too.  Dad calls me MUTANT just because I have one blue eye and one brown eye and lots of light tan blotches running through my brown furs.  Really, Dad!  Get a life!


MAX PLAYING I SPY



2. If you had and alter ego, who would you like to be and why
A.  I would probably like to be the spokesdog for a mattress company because taking naps is my favorite thing to do.
B.  I would like to be a famous warrior and protector of my domain.  I would be in charge of trapping and disposing of every lizard, frog, and squirrel that dares to venture into my space!

3. What do you like best/least about where you live
A.  Since I'm very short, the best part about living in Florida is that we don't have snow here.  A snowfall of more than 3 inches would bury me alive.  And don't get me started on peeing in the snow.  I would be frozen solid to the ground until spring arrived.  There are two things that I don't like about living in Florida.  It can get pretty HOT here and a weenie dog can get grilled to a crisp if they fall asleep outside.  I also worry about hurry-cane season.  I'm little and I can blow away very easily.
B.  Have to agree with sissy on the snow/cold thing.  Having my externals frozen to the ground is NOT my idea of FUN.  So I'm hap-pee that Florida never gets snow.  The bad part about living here is the sand cranes that always come over to my house because Dad feeds them bread.  They're so big and they want to get me!

4. Who are some peeps/furiends you'd like to meet and why
A.  Meeting my blogging furiends was always a dream fur me.  Never thought it would happen.  Butt....in the last month I was able to meet Newby, Dixie, Milo, Sweet William, Frankie, and Ernie and their peeps IN THE FURS!  A dream come true!  I'm already starting to make a LIST of more furiends to meet the next time we head up to Mitten-Gan.  I want to meet as many furiends in the furs as possible.  I feel even closer to them when I visit their blogs because we've already sniffed butt fur real!
B.  DITTO

5. If you could give one piece of random advice what would it be?
A.  Unless they's stealing your stuff, never try and bite a stranger.  They may have some nice treats in their pocket for you.
B.  Never furget the butts you've sniffed.  They'll be your furiends fur life!

6. What do you do for fun and does it involve water polo as one of the major? 
A.  Weenie dogs HATE water.  Well, most of us do.  So, NO....water polo is NOT at the top of my list of things I love to do.  My most fun thing to do is...EAT!  The second most fun thing to do is take a long nap. 
B.  My most fun thing to do is bounce around on Sissy's back.  (Don't let her kid you with the EAT and NAP things she said above).  She bounces on my back too.....and Mom has had to rush both of us to the vet with sore backs because of our FUN.

7. What is the first thing you do each morning
A.  As soon as I hear the pawrents and the pack starting to get up, I immediately get under the blankets and pretend I'm still sleeping.  Sometimes I don't get up until lunch time.
B.  I go outside and pee first.  And if I really feel good, I poop too.  Then I run over to the fence and see if there are any frogs or lizards hanging out that I can chase.

8. What is the first thing you notice about a new furiend
A.  I look to see if they're SMILING at me or if they look like they're going to eat me.  Then I either SMILE back or.......run like heck!
B.  Their butt...and if it's low enough to the ground for me to sniff.  Or if I need a ladder!

9. Tell us how you came to live in your family and how you got your name.
A.  I got into my family because it was something that was just meant to be.  Mommy's three older weenie dogs all went to the Bridge in 2003.  She wasn't looking for another weenie but a series of circumstances led her to me and brudder Max (DaOdderWeenie).  She still thinks that somehow her beloved Bart arranged all this from the Bridge.  This story is way too long to tell about here but if anyone is interested, you can read it all at:
As for my name.....Mommy named me AMBER because of the reddish-brown color of my fur when I was just a wee one.  As for my nickname, Scooter....see question #1.
B. Like Sissy said, I was personally trained by Mom's first Doxie, Bart, and then he made sure I got to the right home with Mom and Dad.  Don't know why they named me MAX.  Guess that was just meant to be too.

10. What is your absolute favorite food
A.  ANYTHING that's edible that I can fit into my teenie weenie mouth is my favorite right at that moment.  I'm not picky about anything, BUTT sneaking something off Mom's plate when she isn't looking is by far the best!  One of my MOST favorite things to eat is....LETTUCE!
B.  Kind of agree with Sissy here!  If it's FOOD, then it's my FAVORITE.  BUTT if given a choice between FOOD and TREATS, I'll pick the TREATS every time.  Any kind of TREATS.

Bonus: Amber and Max...you are both vertically challenged BUTT we all know your Doxie-tude rules the homestead with an firm paw.  Please tell us who in the pack is the most difficult to control and how you discipline everyone!
A.  Mom thinks that SHE's the Leader of the Pack, butt the pack knows that it's really ME who is the Leader.  And my secret is...THE LOOK!  If a pack member is getting OUT of LINE, I just give them THE LOOK!  They most definitely understand the AMBER LOOK.  Pack member, Jennie, tried to avoid THE LOOK once.....she'll NEVER do that again!
B.  I'm such a laid back kind of guy.  I just lay back and watch Sissy give everyone THE LOOK.  That way I don't have to do a single thing.  BOL

Thanks a bunch for answering our interview questions
Hugs Madi and Mom
