Day 904: Friday Featurin Fun, Fresh-Hold, Floppin And Flippin, Forty Winks... And A Big Secret!

FUN
Friday... My Favorite! And today was double my favorite on a counta we share The Traditional Friday Family Lunch wif my the Aunt Karen! How Fun!!!
It was a busy afternoon, and I mostly stayed inside wif the women folk... but I did enjoy a few swings frew the back yard!
I kept checkin the tree for activity, but there was far more excitin fings goin on INside than OUT!

FRESH-HOLD
So I was quick to implore...
"Please to let us go in of doors. Please."
The Bleu open wide...
And implore a little louder!!!
And I frow this in for the ladies...
who enjoy a little manly yet extremely cute
fur and floof!

FLOPPIN
Tis The Season of The Little Bed!
One of my most favorite fings about the lower than normal temperatures we've had this week... is curlin up in the little bed. And here I am, Wednesday Night [Day 902]: Souf Little Bed.

Wednesday Night [Day 902]: The Bleu in the East Little Bed.

FLIPPIN
We flipped and flopped... again.
Wednesday Night [Day 902]: Me in the East Little Bed.


Wednesday Night [Day 902]: The Bleu in the Souf Little Bed.

FORTY WINKS
My the Aunt Karen has left the household, and I am all ready missin her! She holds a special place in my heart for SO many reasons...

Not the least of which, she take me shoppin to buy this fabulous gift for my the Mom's mmf Birfday!!!
Dinosaur Wif Egg Babies.
I fink all you the Moms can agree...
There is no more perfect gift!
The Bleu, he has settled into the East Litttle Bed.
He's pretty cute...
Even for a brother.
The Bleu may seem innocent...
But Big Boy knows how to work it.


A BIG SECRET
The Mom is shuttin fings down round here. And as CHS (Chief Household Supervisor) I am watchin ever move. I know the secret, but my lips are sealed! After all, I'm a stand-up, loyal kind of boy!
That's not to say I'm above frowin a big pity party for the Santa, if he's readin... I mean, there might be a basket FULL of toys right there, but... 
THAT BASKET came wif the Bleu, as part of his trousseau, and so technically it and said contents, for all Santa-like purposes is not mine [mine mine]. And so I fink I might be in need and also deservin a new stuffy [or 2 or 3 or 40].  Just sayin.
 Shhhhhhh... No need to mention this to the Bleu...
Just sayin.
I love ever single day. I do. Give me an EXTRAORDINARY day like today, and I'm excited, frilled and ultimately... completely relaxed and satisfied. And as I rest my eyes, I count my blessins... and say my prayers! And I close by wishin you...

Merry Christmas and Happy Howlidays...

PeeEssWoo: Have woo khonsidered a cellphone so woo khould khall to rekhwest the lettin' in?

Stella said...

Did some Dog just say that Luke needs a cellphone to call and have someone let him in of doors? Craziest thing I ever herd! All you and Bleu has to do is some big barks, in unison, and someone will open that door in a heartbeat.

Great post, Luke!

Your Pal Stella

Sheila and Bob said...

We love following you around everyday.
You sure do stand at the door a lot...BOL, tell the Mom she needs to arrange a bell or buzzer system so she knows when you and the Blue want in.

Hamish & Sophie

The Thundering Herd said...

We find that pounding on the door is effective. Yes, pounding, not scratching.

And we do lots and lots of bed flipping and flopping until the hu-dad says the music has stopped playing and we are all to stay put because we are driving him to some place called batty.

KB said...

I hope that you get 2 or 40 stuffies from Santa, Golden Luke!

And yes, Bleu is very cute!

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Surely Santa will be bringing you at least a stuffie or two or three or more. We have two beds here and three crates - there is a lot of shuffling around here too. Phantom prefers the crate but we do find him on a bed every now and then.

So when are you going to give us some hints about the secret?

houndstooth said...

You don't have a sister hiding in that closet, do you? That would be one big SURPRISE!

I'm going to meet Santa today, and I have no idea what to ask for! Okay, I do, but I'm not sure I can get through my whole list before my turn to talk to him is up...

Bunny

♥I am Holly♥ said...

We love watching you the Luke and the Bleu so much. Gee you guys have alot of toys and we think you need some new ones. We took your advice and Holly stayed here to look after mom because she was afraid for her if she was to go to the North Pole. Gee..she could get in trouble. Have a great day!! Lots of love, Holly and mom

Scout 'n Freyja said...

Just dropping by to send you some cuddles and good wishes and l♥ve. Our momma has been hugely busy and only gets to the bloggies every now and then - at least until after Christmas...

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

We're just stopping by to say 'hello' and see what you're up too--I admire that you're able to keep a secret...We have a few that can't around here. I do think that for keeping a secret you should get at least 40 new stuffies from Santa to call your very own! :-)

Sierra Rose said...

Hi ya Luke!!! Where to begin! My oh my a super awesome stack o' stuffies :) And..just so glad to see ya! Give the Bleu and the mom some huggies from us, ok!?

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

It is a great day to be alive, as our native population says. Spending the day with special family and sharing a meal always fills the soul. Santa will certainly not forget you! Please to ask your mom to send us your address so we can send you (and Bleu) a card with OUR cute little faces on it! You are a VERY good secret keeper... and we are VERY curious! BTW...EXCELLENT floof and tail, my man.

Sam said...

We thought our boys had quite a few toys! You boys sure are cute!

The Bumpass Hounds said...

Hey Luke, The Bleu and Mom,
We have heard that you're not feeling very merry and we came out of semi-retirement to stop by and let you know how bad this makes us all feel. We have sent new letters to to Puppy Claws by express mail and told him to forget all our previous letters and that we only have one thing on all of our lists now; that's for Lucky Luke, the wonderdog, to feel better ASAP. We've dug out the good vib machine and have it aimed towards Texas and we're reving it up to send all those good vibs to you. Unfortunately, we're all too familiar with what you're all feeling now. We hope that the Spirit of Christmas will prevail over the holiday season. We all have such precious little time together that we must make the nmost of it. We're lighting a Christmas candle for Luke tonight and we'll be hitting the floor and looking up at The DOG and praying for our best buddy Luke to hit the road to feeling better soon. We have reset our priorities around TBH&K land; gifts and treats are OK but love, devotion, loyalty and family are what's important. Tell your mom to please contact us at "bumpasshounds@hughes.net" if there is anything that we can possible do for y"all. God Blessm Lucky Luke and his family and watch over them in these troubled times. Pldease bring comfort and strength to those that need it most.

We are so very sorry to hear the sad news! We didn't have the pleasure of knowing Luke, but it hurts just the same. Hugs to you and your family.

Luke had the BEST life, being rescued by you. You were the BEST mom for him and he had an incredible support group. It definitely sounds like he was a happy, smiley boy all the way to the end. I know he will be looking down from above now and looking after you and The Bleu. Keep your eyes/senses open for the little signs he may send you to let you know he is OK.

You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Love from,
Elaine (Sunshade & Jaffa)

Mom and I are so sorry to hear about Luke. His resemblance to out lost brother LoJack is uncanny,and we suspect the pain you are going through has a strong resemblance to ours as well. Luke surely knows how well he was loved.

Keeping you in our thoughts.

Ms. Amanda and The Bleu,
We are all lying around the kitchen floor with tears in our eyes. We want so much for this to be just a bad dream. Our big, tough Navy carrier pilot dad is misty eyed too. We have gone through this before when our siblings crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. We know that Bear, Rusty, Penny and Gordon were all there to greet Luke when he crossed The Bridge. He is not alone and you are there with him in hi spirit. The Luke will always be with you in your hearts just as he is in thousands of other hearts today. We want to say Thank You to The Mom for caring enough to give a senior shelter dog a second life, one filled with love which was truly The Luke's furever home. We love The Mom, and The Bleu too.

The Last Battle
If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done,
For this – the last battle – can’t be won.
You will be sad I understand,
But don’t let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.
We have had so many happy years,
You wouldn’t want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.
Take me to where to my needs they’ll tend,
Only, stay with me ‘til the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will agree
It is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail its’ last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don’t grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do;
We’ve been so close – we two – these years,
Don’t let your heart hold any tears.
