Tortie Tuesday!

It's Tortie Tuesday so I'm going to demonstrate how to snoopervise with Tortitude! Daddy decided to vacuum today so everything was picked up off the floor, including me. I'll just lay here and hold everything down while I snoopervise and display no fear whatsoever of that loud vacuum. This requires a lot of Tortitude!
Are you done yet?
What do you do when your beans vacuum?

EtsyBlogger of the Month - LazyTCrochet!

Tricia from LazyTCrochet is this month's EtsyBlogger of the Month! Tricia creates beautiful products and here is how she describes her work:

I love working with yarn, especially hand-spun wool and cotton when I can and bringing affordable, handmade items to the marketplace. I create modern and original designs as well as traditional, old-world styles in knit and crochet.

Here are some of my favorites from her shop:

Picture Purrfect!

Occasionally we have to humor Mommy by letting her take the pictures she wants so she'll leave us alone. I was lounging in my box and she decided it was time for a photo shoot.
I'm not ready for my glamour shot yet Mommy, I have to fix my tail.
Okay, almost ready, are you?
How's this pose Mommy? I'm dreaming of all the handsome Mancats out there this Monday!
How do you like my over the shoulder look?
Can I go back to lounging now?

Thanks for visiting my photo shoot today! Have a lovely Monday!

Summer Sunday and Some Sincere Thanks!

We're enjoying a relaxing summer Sunday but wanted to share some summer scenes from the Oregon coast. A trip to the coast always includes seeing sea gulls such as this one at Seal Rock:
And here's a view of the coast, again from Seal Rock:

Stroll With Sadie!

It's Sadieday so time for another stroll with me! When we start out in our neighborhood, I have to make sure my leash stays nice and tight since I'm a husky and that's my job.
Mommy keeps a leash on me because of these critters laying in yards. He looks like he wants to get up and come play with me!
Once we get onto the forest roads, Mommy takes the leash off me and sometimes I let her think I listen when she calls me and come running to her.
On the way home, we found this pit stop for any friends I might take along on my strolls. The Bark Place! And a potty pole! Talk about a dog-gone good time! Ha roo roo! I crack myself up!
Hope you enjoyed your stroll with me today! Whatever your plans are today, I hope you have a great Sadieday!

Mommy, you need to get off the computer and pay attention to me!
I'm getting really tired of waiting.

Do your beans spend too much time on the computer too?

Tortie Tuesday!

It's Tortie Tuesday! Today I am going to demonstrate the proper technique for sunning your belly. Once you find a sufficient amount of sunbeam, lay flat on your back so the sun hits your entire belly.
A more advanced move is to stretch your head back so you can get sun on your neck too. This takes practice but it's worth it!
I hope you have sunbeams today so you can warm your belly too!

My job is to snoopervise anything that goes on in my yard. It's a tough job but someone's got to do it.
Last weekend when I was snoopervising, I had a weird feeling that someone was snoopervising me!
Yep, it was my little sisfur Angel!
Do your sisfurs or brofurs snoopervise you too?

Happy Father's Day!

We'd like to wish a Happy Father's Day to all the daddys of kids with or without fur! We're sending special wishes to our own Daddy because we love him very much! He plays with me and my little sisfur Angel every day!
He takes my big sisfur Sadie to the beach!
He lets me snuggle with him while he works on the computer! (I'm actually Daddy's girl!)
We love you Daddy!

Also sending special wishes to our Grandpa because he takes good care of us when Mommy and Daddy are gone!

Happy Father's Day Dad!
Love, Sharla and J

Happy Sadieday!

Since Mommy works from home and has 4 day weekends in the summer, I lose track of time and am never sure what day it is. Every day seems to be a lazy summer day.
But Mommy said today is Sadieday!
Well, that means it's a day for a smile...
and a WOOOOOO!
Mommy didn't get my WOO on video but trust me, it was a long and loud WOO!
I hope WOO have a Happy Sadieday! Now Mommy has to take care of some business.
I'm a little tardy in announcing some awards we received recently. Julie Magers Soulen gave us the Lovely Blog Award!
I came across Julie's Etsy shop while searching for Friday Feature finds and at first noticed her gorgeous photography but then noticed that she lives near our old hometown of Loveland, CO. I've since started following her wonderful blog and would certainly recommend you checking it out! Thank you so much for the award Julie!
Ruthie from Rose Works Jewelry gave me the Premio Meme Award!
Ruthie is a very talented beadwork artist who I admire so much. She battles health issues but doesn't let that dampen her wonderful spirit nor hold her back from creating lovely jewelry and maintaining 2 Etsy shops and 3, yes 3!, blogs! Thank you Ruthie

Anyway, the rules of this award is that I am to give 7 facts about myself and pass it to 7 people. I'll try to come up with 7 facts so here goes:

1) I rarely feel bored unless it's something work related :)
2) I've never had an orange cat but hope to one day
3) I've had an article published in a finance magazine when I was in Graduate school
4) I love flowers but am not very good at gardening
5) Eels give me the eebie jeebies especially after encountering one while snorkeling in Maui
6) I would be very content to spend all day on a beach
7) I love weekends!

Okay, now I will pass it on to the following 7 people in no particular order:
1) Lily at Tulips Talking
2) Patti at Peacox Creations
3) Becky at Miesmama
4) Erika at NICO Designs
5) Michele at moxylyn
6) Nancy at Nanjodogz
7) Tim at Everyday Living
