a few of my favorite things

Here are some more pictures of my favorite spots in our house! This is the place where Massah puts all our toys, and then we pull them out one by one and strew them all around the house! Quite a fun game.

And this is where Massah and Massah-in-Law sit a lot to eat. That means that this is where Fig and I sit a lot to catch any falling scraps. (please ignore the black and white behemouth staring at you in this picture)

This is our fireplace where we sit every time someone turns on the fire. We spend hours in front of this glorious thing. We spend so much time there, in fact, that we have to make sure there's a blanket in place at all times and lots of toys and bones readily available.

And here are our windows! They're on either side of the fireplace so that we can jump up and bark at a moment's notice!

This one on the left we can peek our heads around, if Massah isn't in the room. She yells if she catches us doing that.

And the one on the right is pretty nice too. Can you see those cars out there? You wouldn't believe what people do to those things - first of all, they WALK OUT to them! And they're right in front of OUR house, so of course we yell and yell. And then they OPEN THE DOORS and make lots of banging sounds. So of course we yell and yell some more. And THEN they make the cars do some VAROOOM VAROOOOOOOMMMMM noises and it bothers us so much we have to yell even MORE at them. And once we yell long enough, they run away in the cars. Sometimes we have to yell a VERY LONG TIME before we scare them away. But we never give up.

And of course our dinner table. Right through those doors in the background is where our FOOD is kept. Yummmmmmmmmmm....

Every so often I have to stop by and check and see if any food has magically appeared since the last time I checked. You never know.

That looks like a wonderful place to live. Dawson and I love to yell also. It makes Pappy yell and we think that is just so funny. Keep up the good work.

So you spend so much time in front of the fireplace you have a giant watch to tell the time - LOL!!! I lurve my fireplace too, but it is already getting too warm to turn it on - boo hoo! I know, I shouldn't complain!!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Taddy, thank you for the tour of your new digs. I was worried that you might not be living as you've been so acustomed to. That fireplace rocks!!


Peanut said...

Oh nice digs Tad. We are so glad you post more often then you were for a while there.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Tad!
Looks like you are happy in your new house!
I do the same with my bowl. I go there and check it from time to time. Like you said... just in case!
Kisses and hugs

Nice place! I wish we had a fireplace.

Your new home does look pretty cool. It's amazing how clean your slaves (oops...), I mean Massah & Leah keep your house. Do you think they could spare some time and come over to do some house keeping at my house too? hehe

Joe Stains said...

you guys have so many exciting things in your new house, I LOVE the windows. Tanner seems to think food might magically appear in our bowls too.

That's a pretty great set-up you two have in front of the fireplace. We noticed that orange and white nylabone. We used to have one just like that but it became a "bone of discontent" (pardon the pun) and many a fight broke out over who's it was. So it went missing. We miss our bone :-(

You have a very nice place, Tad. I was there once, remember? And I think it's time for me to come & visit again soon.

Balboa & Mommy said...

WOW, what nice digs you have Tad. I wish I had a fireplace, you are soooo lucky. I love to bark at people too, how dare they not run the moment you bark!!!!

WOW! You have such a wonderful home! Even your jails look comfy! I check my bowl often too...but usually I only see food at the same time each day.

You are a lucky little man, Tad. Maybe sometime I can come over and you can show me that blanket in front of your fireplace?

Your house is great! Your names are on the wall, you have a fireplace, a neat place for your toys and nice place to eat AND ther's non of those evil stairs like in your old place!! I love our fireplace, too. Sometimes it gets too warm though and I have to go in another room to cool off for awhile.

Hi Tadpole
I love windows too!I tore my curtains into shreds!!!

Poppy said...

That is so cool that you have a fireplace with a blankie in front of it. I wish I had one of those! You should learn how to turn it on all by yourself. Clover hasn't figured out how to access the heater controls yet. We just have to sit in front of it and wait...


Stanley said...

Thanks for the tour, man. You're living in style for SURE!

I wish we had a fireplace to curl up in front of. I bet it would be great for any dates you might have too.

Tell Massah that sometimes covert operations must be conducted at the windows. That's all there is to it.

Goober love,

Thanks for the guided tour Tad. We can't see out the front of our house so don't get to do any nosying at the neighbourhood.

We love to yell too but when mommy asks us to SHUT UP, we will so that we won't get in trouble later. Hee!
