A Case of the Blahs

Hewwwwow!  Finnie here.  I have to tell you all something…

Momma’s come down with a case of the Blogging Blahs.

We’re going to take a little blogging break, and plan on coming back when spring is in full bloom and when we can tell you about all of our warm outdoor adventures then!

Have no fears, I will be keeping Momma and Pops good company, dreaming about my heart-throb Cody and having fun running and playing around.

We will see you soon!

True Color Thursday – Aqua

This week’s challenge was aqua!  How fun!

I went to one those paint your own pottery places
 with my Mom and made myself this cup.
Here’s Finn playing with her new toy from her boyfriend!
She loves it, as you can see by the way she has
torn through the rope!

Here are some candle holders without the candles.
Finn tried to eat the wax when she was a puppy and
we haven’t put them back yet.

And our twist was to take a picture of actual aqua – this spot is just a couple of blocks from where I spend most of my days…

Ok, so Manhattan waters aren’t so blue, but you get the idea!

And here I am on the other side (Brooklyn), looking back at lower Manhattan.  Murky blue aqua in foreground.  I took this picture on a staff outing for our holiday lunch.  I couldn’t believe it was this gorgeous outside in late December!


Go Vote!

Head on over to vote for your favorite Bad Sport!  You have until 5pm (EST) totomorrow!
We hope you’ll give Finn a fighting chance in this competition.  Remember her bratty behavior bad sport retriever games?
Good luck to all of competitors!  May the Worst Sport win!
I’m a bad sport!

Happy Valetine’s Day!

Dear Cody,

I am looking forward to seeing you tonight at the dance.  MMMMWWWAH!

Love, Finn

Now, you remember that Cody sent me a package last week, right?  Well, one day, there was a knock out at door from the postlady!  An EXPRESS mail delivery for meeee!  
From Singapore!

Looks like a love letter!


A squeaky pink octopus, an instant favorite!

Ok, I’m back, posing with my love letter!

Cody, you are really talented with a scissor and glue!

I love my new toys and treats! 
Thank you thank you thank you!

But, I am a little concerned, you aren’t in the box.

I still hope to see you tonight at the dance.  I am at the kissing booth, remember? 
*wink, wink*

We’ve Been Tagged!

Hewwwow, Finn here.  Guess what happened to us on Friday?  We got tagged!

1.  Describe yourself in seven words:
Loving life, curious, beautiful, energetic, typical golden!

2. What keeps you up at night?
If they let me in the bed, Momma and Pops kicking me keeps me up all night.  Jeez, all I want to do is stretch out, can’t they understand that?

If they don’t let me in the bed, I just snoooooooze the whole night through.

3.  Who would you like to be?
Everyone who spends time with me just says how much I love life….the dog sitter, random people on the street, and my peeps especially.  Makes me think I would be particularly good at being a reporter of some sort, or hosting my own daily talk show, so I believe that I could be an excellent Oprah.

4.  What are you wearing right now?
I like to go in the nude.

5.  What scares you?
Lately the guys outside hunting for deer and shooting their guns have been giving me the jumps!

6.  The best and worst of blogging:
I just love knowing about you all and my Momma really learns some creative things that she uses on me!  That’s just the best!  You guys get a new toy, I get a new toy, you guys go somewhere exciting, Momma takes me somewhere exciting.  It’s awesome!

Momma does get a little down sometimes when she’s reading about the Rainbow Bridge.  She won’t tell me what that is though because I am still a young pup!

Ok, I’m not that young anymore, but Momma says she and I can’t have that discussion yet.

7.  The last website I visited:  My tagger – Basset Momma!  Thank you!

8.  What is one thing I would change about myself:
Hmmmm,…I am beautiful, well-groomed, healthy, smart…I don’t think there is too much to change!

9.  Slankets, yes or no:  My Momma doesn’t know what a slanket is!

10.  Tell us something about the dog which tagged you – these guys really make me laugh – have you seen the entry where Freddie drinks the tea?  Or when he goes for a run in the snow?  Please go check it out!

Now, I am supposed to tag eight more blogs, but I can’t decide.  I know it’s the easy way out, but if you’d like to share some things about yourself with us, please do!

And, a lot of you asked more about The Big Duck post from Friday.  We didn’t actually get to go in!  We just walked around outside for a bit, and continued on with our joy riding.  But, I was reading that they sell a lot of “duck” items!  Maybe we will head back one day and try again!

The Big Duck

A couple of weeks ago, we took a ride to The Big Duck.
They aren’t kidding!  Built in the 1930s by a local farmer, The Big Duck was a place for him to sell duck eggs.  Today it’s a gift shop on a little piece of county owned property.

Finn loved it!
But, we got there at 11:45am, and there was a sign saying that it would reopen at 1pm.  Kinda a long lunch hour, eh?  So, we walked around outside for a bit.
Finn still loved it!

True Color Thursday – Eucalyptus

This week’s True Color Challenge was Eucalyptus.  How fun!  
I found some nice shades of this green –
Here’s the floor in my building’s elevator.  Actually, it’s quite beautiful!
And here is the sign of a restaurant across the street from me. 
Confession: I have only eaten there once.
It was on my first day of work.

And our photo twist – find something that smells like Eucalyptus.  
Thank you, local drug store!
