Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here.

Did you miss me?

We know we’ve been MIA and some of that has to do with our crappy rainy weather. Until a couple of days ago our temps had been above freezing and our backyard was a muddy mess. Needless to say we weren’t spending much time outside but that changed when we finally got some snow to play in and a sunny day.

I love sticking my head into the fluffy snow.

That snow is tasty too!

We had lots of fun playing in the lovely fluffy snow and will show you more of it soon.

I like to clean my nose off…

…while I’m walking.

We hope our snow sticks around for a while so we can enjoy more time playing outside. Our pawrents are still surprised how energetic a couple of 7 year old pups can be. We think it’s because we keep each other young by still enjoying playing with each other. Have a happy Tongue Out Tuesday everyone!

Hi everyone! It’s Walter here. We enjoyed a beautiful day outside today with a high temperature around 58°F. Mom and dad were telling me that it would be the last day in a while that I could play outside.

I sure love playing in my yard

Tomorrow my mom is taking me to a special vet. Remember when we told you about it? It was supposed to happen a couple of weeks ago but we had a freak early winter storm so my mom cancelled it but it’s back on for tomorrow.

I hope I get to stand on my stump again soon.

The weather is supposed to be much better tomorrow compared to the last time we were supposed to go. We could get a little wind and rain for the trip home but no snow. My mom said she is spending the day in a nearby hotel after she convinced them to let her check in around 9 am instead of the normal 3 pm. She should be able to pick me up between 4 and 5:30 pm.

The bottom line is I could use a little POTP and my mom says she could use some too as we will be leaving here around 6 am to make our 8 am appointment. It’s going to be a long day for both of us but I probably won’t remember most of it.

Hi everyone! It’s Cindy here. A few weeks ago Charlie and I ventured up to Webster park again in hopes of seeing another beautiful sunset. We weren’t disappointed.

Hi everyone. It’s Millie and Walter here. We’ve been enjoying playing in our snowy yard. One of the things we like doing is hopping up on the stump of the big ash tree that was removed from our yard this summer.

You can really do some regal looking poses on the stump.

It’s also a great place to look out over the yard.

Of course sometimes we both get up there and, well…

It’s Wrestle Mania Time!

Don’t worry. We take turns with each other’s scruff in our mouths. This time Millie happened to have the upper paw.

We’re joining The Cat on My Head for their Selfie Sunday blog hop.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. Well you might be wondering how Walter’s surgery went yesterday. The truth is it didn’t happen.

This butterfly has quite a lot of snow on her back

On Monday the weather peeps were telling us that we were getting a big storm on Tuesday that would make travel difficult to the vet (remember it is a 1 ½ hour drive from our house). Our mom made the decision to cancel the appointment for safety sake. It has been rescheduled for Wednesday, November 27th.

Instead of having surgery I got to do lots of playing in the snow

Dad made lots of snowballs for us to retrieve

We had about 15+ inches of snow in the past couple of days (this broke records for snow fall amount and low temperatures). It was light and fluffy but packed well for snowballs.

I still have all my teeth.
Don’t you dare chomp them on me.

I love sticking my head in the snow

We sure had a great time playing in the snow

The snow won’t last for long as the temps are supposed to get above freezing during the next week.

We’re sorry we haven’t been around much this past week. Our mom had family visiting and got a little behind in commenting on our friends blogs but she promised to get caught up soon.

Happy Halloween everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here.

We’ve enjoyed being outside in the nice fall weather. 

Today we are joining the LLB Gang for their No Tricks, Just Treats for Shelters blog hop. Sadly the rescue group that we both came from no longer is in business so we can’t help them any more but since Millie was rescued from Rochester Animal Services we decided to help them out.

What are these leaves doing on me?
They look great against your furs Millie.

There is something that is so easy for everyone to do if you ever shop at Amazon.com that can help your favorite charity.

You can choose from over one million charities to support. Just make sure when you are ready to start shopping you start at smile.amazon.com. We made sure that our mom has designated the Verona Street Animal Society as our Amazon Smile charity. They are a non-profit that raises needed funds for the city shelter where Millie came from.

We must be raising lots of money based on how many Amazon boxes come to our house.

You should check to see if your favorite charity is supported by Amazon Smile and sign up. There is no additional cost to you to do so.

We are joining the LLB Gang for their blog hop and Comment-a-Thon. They are donating money to three worthy pet charities. For every blog that joins their hop they are donating $1 and for every comment they are donating 50 cents. Help them out by visiting and leaving a comment even if you don’t join the blog hop.

Hi everyone it’s Cindy here. This past Sunday evening Charlie and I headed out to Webster Park to see what the sunset would be like. It wasn’t as beautiful as we had hoped but here is a little of what we saw.

I love the panorama setting on my new camera
