Awww x 2 MONDAY and Sparks

I have two Awww Mondays that go perfectly with my SPARKS

#1 Awww Monday

About noon on Friday, February 7, 2020
Dad of Angel Madi found this on the floor!!
(FYI I vacuum weekly)
I'm sure we found many whiskers and tons of fur after she past..
How appropriate on this Valentine's Week...
a Whisker fell from OTRB
It is now secure in a box with her fur.

Our itty bitty kitty came little cat feet to leave us some love. 

Carl Sandburg's poem 
Fog says it purrfectly

The fog comes on little cat feet.
It sits looking over harbor and city on silent
 haunches and then moves on.

#2 Awww Monday and multiple 

Friends of ours recently adopted
Daisy an 8 year old Piebald Dachshund from the Raleigh Dachshund rescue...
Rose, their Dachshund/Chihuahua mix, passed 3 weeks ago.  They were gonna wait til Spring to look for another one Dachshund; however, Gretchen has been so very lonely and wandering around the house looking for Rose.
Gretchen was the boss of the house; however, it seems she is so happy to have a sista she has handed over her crown.
Daisy didn't miss a beat putting on her Tiara.  Daisy makes Gretchen wait to enter a room until SHE , Daisy, has entered.

Daisy is a long haired *Piebald Dachshund
*A piebald dachshund has a white coat with patches of gray, black or brown. ... A piebald dachshund puppy is born when two wieners with the recessive piebald gene breed together. ... Your sausage dog is a piebald dachshund if it sports areas of full-color fur on a white background.

Gretchen is a long haired red...
Cheers for Adopting instead of Shopping

Sparks quite appropriate for today


  1. Wow, don't think we've ever seen a piebald dachshund. But Bertie of course believes that multicoloured pups are the best!

  2. yay for Daisy and Gretchen!!! they are super cute... and we smiled and thought of your Diva while reading about the wisker from heaven...

  3. Hari OM
    Oh, the brush of a whisker... and dachshunds - a pawfect post!!! YAM xx

  4. Those signs from RB are so very precious♥ What a beauty Daisy is and Gretchen must be so happy to have a new sissy!

  5. Daisy is so cute! I have never seen a piebald daschie before.
    It is very special to find one of Madi's whiskers. I still very occasionally find a single fur from Flynn, but the other day I was looking through some old clothes and found one of Eric's even though it is almost 7 years. I know it was his because he had longer fur than Flynn. I keep all their fur and whiskers in a little wooden cat shaped box.

  6. How amazing to find a whisker. We love those signs from ones who have passed.

  7. Good eye dad for spotting that whisker.

    Awwwwwwwww, your friends are so sweet for adopting the 2 doxie's!

  8. The whisker really is an Awww! Hooray for Daisy, welcome home sweetie!!!

  9. Awww, so precious. We've found those treasures too and I'm sure more will show up here and here. I would have saved it too.

    It's so good to have a new sister. Two huge Awww's this morning.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. Big hug honey. ♥

  10. I just came from seeing for the first time a white raven and did not know they exist. now I know there are piebald wiener dogs, and did not know that either. so glad Daisy found a new home and that Gretchen has a new playmate. so sweet, both of them... they rate and awwwww each. you already know we subscribe to Adopt don't Shop!

  11. I found TWO of Angel's spent whiskers this weekend...probably because you put it into my mind!
    Have always loved that poem!

  12. That is so sweet of Madi to send you a gift. XO

  13. How lovely to find a Madi whisker! And welcome to Daisy. So happy she's found a family and the family found her.

  14. madi....itz total lee awesum that ewe vizited mom N dad....ewe noe we noe they noe why....manee manee thanx for it ♥♥♥♥♥

  15. Oh I love the fact Gretchen now has a "sista" who has become Queen of the house so quickly! Some things were just MEANT TO BE!

    Hugs, Pam

  16. I'd be happy to share my pattern- it was really a very simple straight forward made up pattern!

  17. Awwww, do love the poetry today. And reading about Gretchen & Daisy.

    Nazi's whisker...omgoodness. priceless.

    1. Seriously??!! NAZI?? correct on phone


  18. What a precious find!
    Mabel & Hilda

  19. How sweet that Angel Madi sent you a sign this week. We're happy for Daisy that she found a new home and a sister to boss around. BOL!

  20. I think there have been two angel visits, one to leave a whisker and one to leave a dog

  21. Definitely a big AWWWW for Angel Madi leaving you a whisker. Most excellent time to have found it! You know how I feel about Sandburg's poem♥ So happy Daisy found a home and Gretchen and Daisy more than get along.

  22. Madi showed you she is always with you. Angel Lexi could never use that sign to me, not with Lucy shedding like she does. It's a wonder Lucy has any hair left on her body with the amount I vacuum up every week!
    I've never seen a piebald dachshund. How unusual looking from what I am used to.

  23. That is so sweet! And has to be a message!

  24. I still found hair from my Golden for years. It always seemed his way of saying “hi” from the Rainbow Bridge.


Please leave a meow or bark for Angel Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
