Hewwwow!  Finnackles here.  Wanting to let you know we have made it through Day 1 of the storm and we have lived to tell about it.  I am sure you are waiting to see what my peeps had in store for me.  Boy, were they ready to keep me entertained, no matter what.

Sunday night called for some high winds!  But Momma had to work an event at her part-time job.  So Pops drove her so she wouldn’t have to go by herself in the wind and rain.  (Awwwww.)  And, of course, I joined them.

Here we are! Looks spooky, right? It’s really a house from the 1830s which has been turned into an art gallery. The last time I was here you asked me to show you some of the artwork.  So here I am in front of a nice piece that will be hung later this month.

So pretty. Then Momma opened up a bottle of something when we got home. Pops said it was named after either her or me. Not sure what he means!

Monday morning I was a little bit unsettled. Momma tried to take me for a walk, but it was so windy and it was starting to rain, so we just ventured out a block or two.

So we came back inside and worked on some tricks. I know this picture is really blurry, but Momma is having me weave through her legs! That’s her kicking up her leg and moving it to the front.  She saw this over at Kirsten’s blog and thought we could do that.  Apparently, my Momma’s photographer isn’t as good as Kirsten’s.  He’s fired.  But I did good!!!  I can weave through her legs – we used some Liver Biscotti treats we got at the Halloween party this weekend!

Anyways, we snuggled, we wuggled, we played with my toys, we slept, and from time to time, we went outside to look at the trees and see how things were doing in my neck of the woods. Momma said this is a down tree, but I think it’s a big stick. What do you think Goose?

Monday afternoon we got an email saying that our friend Suka crossed the rainbow bridge. And Momma came over and held me so tight and we laid on the couch for a while. We are so sad. We will miss our friend, but we know Suka is in a better place without any pain.  At night, Momma lit a candle.  I had never been around a candle before.  She said she wanted to have it lit in case the power went out and to light it for Suka too.

Our overnight calls for more wind and some more flooding.  We are lucky that even though we live on an island, we aren’t really near any water so we did not have to evacuate.  We hope tomorrow brings a quick end to this storm for us (even though I kinda like having both of my peeps home with me)!

    Oh my goodness Finn, congrats on making it through the first night…but you all make sure you remain safe for the rest of Sandy! I’m sorry to hear about Suka, that was a lovely gesture with the candle though. 🙂 Good job with the new trick, try for a better pic next time! 😉

    Thank you for letting us know you are okay and staying safe 🙂 Finn that is one very big stick you found! Goose will be so proud! 🙂 The areas in and around Manhattan look like a real mess. Very happy you are all home together 🙂 You gave me a good chuckle with your beverage of choice BOL!

    Yes, Suka is in a better place now. Mom and I sent love to his Momma as we know she is sad with his crossing.

    We will be thinking of The Finn Family all warm and safe and snuggly in your home 🙂

    Hugs and Wags,

    Oh Finn, we’re so sorry to hear about Suka. That was nice of your Mom to light a candle.

    We’re glad the BIG part of the storm is pretty much gone now from up here where we are. We’re waiting for the light of day to see if we have any trees down in the yard. We had really high winds last night and a lot of rain too. We did NOT like the sound of the wind whipping all around. At least the worst is over. We’re torn about the size of your downed tree/stick. I think that Goose would have to make the final call on that one.

    Glad you’re ok furend.

    We are glad all of you are okay and are so sorry about Suka! Such a good friend and we are glad there is no more pain.

    As for you, stay safe and warm! The rain and wind is plowing down on us as we write! Thankfully we still have power.

    Glad to hear you are getting on OK. I wonder when your mom will be able to go back to work. It sounds like the city is a mess. Bet you are a great leg weaver. 🙂 So sorry to hear about Suka. 😦

    So glad to hear that you are safe. And yes tell your mom that is a STICK. No question about it. I’ve tried weaving through my MOM’s legs, didn’t work out so well. Maybe I should have told I was doing it first. Keep warm and safe Miss Finn.

    Glad to hear you are all well and safe. And very glad that big stick landed in a good place as opposed to on top of your house. 😮

    We are very sorry to hear of your friend, Suka. Run free, now, sweet one.

    PS – love your weave-ability. 🙂

    Finn, we think you could have lots of fun with that big gigantic stick. We hope you are all OK, and we hope it stays that way. Watching what is happening on the TV is very scary. We are so sorry so many have suffered such terrible loss.

    Take care and be careful.

    So glad you are all OK from Sandy…sounds like a lot of what we did – cuddling inside. Like that wine’s taste 😉 We, too, were saddened by Suka’s passing…so nice of your mom to light a candle for him.
