Private (or not so) Thoughts...

*sniff sniff*
I smell ya Azalea!
Ha roo roo!  I crack myself up!
Oh, hey there Mommy.  How long you been there?
What's a dog gotta do to get some privacy on my own deck?

Hope you can sniff like no one is around!

Tortie Tuesday

I hope everybuddy enjoyed a nice holiday weekend!  Because of the holiday yesterday, today is sorta like a Monday but then tomorrow is Mommy's Friday which means we have to cram a whole work week into two days.  That's just exhausting!
I do have some business to take care of though.  You might have noticed in our left hand side bar that we have a new blog sponsor - cute little Leela!   
Leela and her lovely mom Isabela (beautiful name!) have an Etsy shop with clothes and accessories for dogs and some for kitties too!  We'd love for you to check out their shop and they are offering a discount for our readers - 15% off with the coupon code BEADED.  I give that a Tortie paw up!  
Thank you Leela and Isabela for sponsoring our blog and offering a discount for our readers!  

I hope you have a Happy Tortie Tuesday!

Thoughts on Memorial Day...

Today is Memorial Day here in the U.S. so we're thinking of the men and women who have fought and died for our country.  We are very grateful for their service and our freedom.  We're also thinking of our friends and loved ones that we have lost...
I'm also thinking it's about time to fire up that grill!
We hope everybuddy has a wonderful Memorial Day!

Stroll with Sadie!

Yay it's Sadieday!  It's been rainy all week but it cleared up just in time for Sadieday!  I got my stitches out last week but my neck is still itchy (that's my story and I'm sticking to it) so let's go on a stroll when I can trust Mommy off leash.  Are you ready?  Leash up your beans if necessary and let's go!
There's a shadow Monster chasing me!  RUN!
It wasn't a Monster, it was just my Mommy.  Ha roo roo!
The trail is a little rough so I won't go so fast.  Mommy is a tad clumsy so I don't want her to fall like she's been known to do...
Even at a slow pace, it's fun to take a stroll on a Sadieday!
I hope you can take a stroll on smooth trails in your neck of the woods today!  

Hope you have a Happy Sadieday and a Happy holiday weekend too!

Our mommy chose the May challenge topic for the Blogging Business Artisans which is to incorporate your favorite inspiration into the project of your choice.  Well, since we are her inspiration we thought we'd show you how we inspire her.  So many times we find her just staring at a pile of beads like this...
We can tell when she's got no crafty ideas happening so it's our job to help her out.  Can you tell what I'm trying to inspire?
My big, round blue eyes inspired these earrings (and yes, that's my sisfur Sadie's big head in the photo)...
Deb from Storybeader made Mommy a journal that she uses to put ideas in for her BeadedTail shop too.  Of course you can see that once again, we're there to inspire her...
She's not very good at drawing but when she does think of ideas she does her best to put them in the journal...
And eventually she's even able to make those ideas come to life like these earrings...
Again, notice they are blue like my pretty eyes!  Anyway, hope you enjoyed a glimpse of how we inspire Mommy's creations and of course her entire shop was inspired by the desire to help animals since she donates the proceeds to animal charities.  

What inspires you?

Enjoy your day!

Tortie Tuesday

The other day I was minding my own business and enjoying a sunpuddle totally oblivious to anything else around me...
When suddenly I see a Peeping Mom!
Mommy was looking at me through the window and I didn't even know she was there!  She almost scared the Tortieness out of me which is saying a lot since I'm so extremely mellow nothing scares me.  I could hear her giggling on and on and on...
Even Sadie went to see what was cackling outside...
Today's lesson is that humans better be glad we can't reach to lock their booty outside or else we'd be having the last laugh!

Hope you have a Tortie Tuesday free from Peepers!

Weekend Wrap Up

We hope you had a great weekend!  Mommy is off work this week so we got a lot done on the weekend so we can do a whole lot of nothin' this week.  Some of the things we did included picking a winner of our journal giveaway which was the Katnip Lounge!   Concatulations to Momkat Trish!  We wish we could send a journal to everybuddy but we can offer a 15% discount on anything in Mommy's shop.  Just go shopping here and enter code CELEBRATE15 upon checkout to get your discount until May 28th! 

Other things we did this weekend was help Mommy make more jewelry.  For some reason she doesn't always appreciate this help though but I have no idea why...
Sadie got her stitches out on Sadieday so she's scratching less which is good.  She also got weighed at the v-e-t and even though Mommy's been feeding her lots of treats she lost two pounds in 10 days so she now weighs 77 lbs.  Although this is about right for her size it worried Mommy that she lost weight when she's eating more treats than ever.  But then again, Mommy's a worry wart so Sadie will milk this.  Here's her "treat face"...
Yeah, we can do much better treat faces than that but we don't get near as many treats as she does!  Phooey on that!  Anyway, we're looking forward to a very lazy week around here and hope you get plenty of lazy time too! 

PeeS:  Don't forget get to use the code CELEBRATE15 to get 15% off anything in Mommy's BeadedTail shop now through May 28th!

Field Trip on Sadieday!

Yay it's Sadieday!  I've been waiting all week to be able to go on a stroll but since I'm still itching my stitches on my neck I can't wear a collar so I thought I'd be grounded again but then I came up with a great idea - a field trip!  We could go to where I can let Mommy off leash so we could both run!  Pretty smart huh?  Well, grab your running shoes and come along with me...
We're here so catch me if you can let's go!
One good thing about getting out in front especially on a big hill is that I have time to explore while Mommy tries to catch up...
And do some off-roading too...
Hey, wait a minute, you can't pass me!
I had a great idea to come on a field trip!
I had lots of fun today and hope you did too!  Thanks for coming along with me!

Hope you find some adventure in your neck of the woods today!

Enjoying Sunpuddles

We wait a long time until sunpuddle season so when it comes we never miss a chance to enjoy them...
But there's one thing that can make the sunpuddle even better - a nice, long stretch...
Oh yeah, now it's purrfect!
Hope your sunpuddles are purrfect today too!
Isabella and Angel

PeeS:  Tomorrow is the last day to enter Mommy's giveaway of a journal.  If you haven't entered already, you can do so here.
