Remembering a Special Boy

Today would have been Thunder Dunder's 11th birthday.  He left us at the very young age of 7 on July 1, 2013.

April 28, 2006 - July 1, 2013

TD had simply beautiful blue eyes encircled by that black eyeliner:)

Sir Thunder Dunder was always a good sport about pleasing Mom with her silly costumes.  He actually won First Prize for this photo both on a blog contest and at a local pet store.

A beautiful smile on the boy who loved life.

Surrounded by his pack on one of his last days with us.  He got along with everyone he met, and he loved to have fun.

He sure did enjoy those tasty treats in Mom's paws.

But mostly he loved his half sister, Angel Ciara.  TD and Ciara had the same champion Siberian Husky Dad Mel.  They were always together.  Interestingly, all of Ciara's woes began shortly after Thunder left us.

The inseparable Duo.  He was adored by Ciara.

Mom's handsome boy!

We miss you, buddy, but we bet you were thrilled to see Angel Ciara arrive to join you across the Rainbow Bridge. You are forever in our hearts. Happy Birthday, Thunder!

Tasty Tuesday - #ChewyInfluencer

It's time for us to do our April review for

This month we are checking out a new canned food (new to us) by Nutro.

It is Nutro's Limited Ingredient Diet Grain Free canned food in the turkey & potato recipe.  We were lucky enough to receive a full case of 12 cans from

Thank you, Ms Natalie and, for your generous offer for us to give us this product at no cost to us in exchange for a fair and honest review.  Misty is worried those Easter rabbits might try to beat her to the test.

Look at how delicious it looks!  
From the website we learned the following:


Some grains, such as corn or wheat, can trigger a food allergy or digestive issues in dogs. Nutro Grain Free Adult Farm Raised Turkey & Potato Recipe Premium Loaf contains 0% grain. This makes it a great option for dogs with food sensitivity. Our natural, wet dog food uses a limited number of ingredients. These include farm-raised turkey as the single, novel animal protein source and highly digestible potatoes. Plus, this wet dog food also is formulated to give your dog healthy skin and a shiny coat. 

Key Benefits:

  • Number-one ingredient is great-tasting, U.S.-farm-raised turkey which delivers amino acids to build muscle and maintain a healthy metabolism. Give your dog all that she needs to thrive and stay healthy.
  • This product is made without grains, corn gluten meal, wheat or soy protein. Because of this there is a less chance of aggravating food sensitivities and allergies.
  • Formulated with optimal levels of omega-6 fatty acid (linoleic acid) and zinc to promote healthy skin and a shiny coat. Help keep your pet keep looking great and robust.
  • Made with absolutely no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. This is a high quality product that is produced in the manufacturer's own facilities to ensure safety and quality.
  • Nutro's dedicated team of experts tailor their formulas to your pet's life stage and health condition. They only use natural ingredients that they directly buy and can trace back to their suppliers.

We get kibble as the bulk of our meal, but Mom adds some green beans, pumpkin, and a topper of various canned food.  We would love to have our whole meal be the canned food, but Mom says that could be a bit costly for her and give us a few too many calories:)

You can see how much we enjoyed this special delight last night when we had our dinner.  Enjoy our video.

You can also view the video on YouTube HERE.

As you can tell, we were very pleased with how good this Nutro's Limited Ingredient Diet Grain Free canned food in the turkey & potato recipe was.  We have to say we give it four paws up each.  If you are interested in getting some, it also comes in other varieties and can be found HERE on the website.  Mom says she was happy with our response and would definitely consider purchasing it for us again.  Thank you, Natalie and for letting us do this review.

Now, Mom, is it time for dinner yet?

Earth Day -2017

Today we celebrate Earth Day.

 \We live in such a beautiful world.
So much natural beauty all around us.

Misty, do you smell that nice fresh air?

And look at the green, green grass of home!

We should all treat our Earth with great care, love, and respect.

Hey Lightning, does that mean it is OK if we help out by doing some tilling of the soil around Mom's flowers?

Flowers for Angel Dory

Today we are joining so many of our friends to honor dear Angel Dory.

Dory always made us smile with all the beautiful flowers she and her Mom would post for us to admire.

We don't have any flowers at our house yet.  Mom wanted to be sure we weren't going to have any more cold nights AND she has been super busy anyway.  So we decided that we would share some of our Angel memories with flowers.  

Angel Dakota - our first Siberian - loved to pose with the day lilies.

One of her last days with us before she became Angel Dakota.

And Angel Phantom - ole Mr. Blue Eyes - took a fancy to the early signs of Spring - daffodils.

Blue hyacinths to match his mesmerizing eyes.

And one more with those dazzling day lilies.

Angel Thunder - what a handsome boy! - giving Mom a great photo op under the Rose of Sharon.

The two inseparable duo - Angels Thunder Dunder and Sweet Ciara - wondering what mischief they could get into without Mom noticing.

A little humor  from our Angel Gardener - Misty says she is her inspiration:)

Once upon a time, this Angel would not be sitting so serenely with a pot of undisturbed flowers behind her.

We just love this threesome enjoying a nice Spring day in the green grass. 

I hope none of my buddies are watching me pose with pink tulips! 

The grass feels good on my tummy.

Phlox for Phantom!

How sweet is this one? 

 We won't touch the hostas, Mom, we promise.

So beautiful!

Three Angels and little brother Lightning.

This trip down Memory Lane has brought back many wonderful times with our Angels surrounded by the beauty of flowers.  We hope you have enjoyed it too.

We think it is about time for Mom to get our flower boxes filled, don't you?

Thursday Talk

Sorry we have been MIA both in posting and in commenting. It's been a busy week with lots going on. Dad had some medical stuff happening (he's OK now), all the Easter weekend craziness with family, a bathroom renovation, printer problems for Dad that MOM had to fix, a muddy puppy - wait, who said that? - and just not enough time. We promise to try to do better if we can just get our assistant back on task.

We have some special guest appearances for tomorrow's Flowers for Dory event.

Don't believe a word SHE says - does this look like a muddy puppy???

Thanks to Ann of Zoolatry for our Easter photo.

It is a lot of fun to celebrate Easter Sunday with baskets and eggs and peeps and jelly beans.  But let's also remember that today commemorates a very special moment for Christians.  

Alleluia!!!  HE is Risen!
Happy Easter!!
