Wheelie Wednesday!

Hi everydog, kittie, hammie, bear and hooman! It's me, PorkChop! I'm glad you joined us for Wheely Wednesday!
It was really quiet around here for the last couple of days. Those real dogs were pawtying in Australia, so I, and all the other wheelies, had the house to ourselves! Well, sort of...our mom and dad were still here. Today, they are celebrating their 28th anniversary. Well, I guess you really can't call it celebrating...they have decided not to go out to dinner since they have to have a new windshield wiper motor put on the Aire-mobile. It's going to cost over $700 and Mom is not amused. The wipers on her Tahoe won't shut off and she looks pretty silly driving around with the wipers on when the sun is shining!

Ever since those real doggies got back from Australia, they have been doing a lot of this! They must have had way too many pawtinis and dogaritas! I guess it's safe to say that they had a pawsome time. Their fuzzy butts are really dragging! All they want to do is sleep! They did stay awake long enough to tell us how nice it was to see all their friends!

Mom and Dad can hear tiny peeps coming from the Bluebird nest, now. Mason and Mena are starting to get very demanding for their meal wormies. As soon as they empty the dish, they start yelling for more! Those are going to be some really fat bird puppies! This picture is the Chickadee nest. We thought we were going to have Chickadee puppies too, but their nest has been abandoned. We don't know what happened to the mama birdie, but when she hadn't come around in a few days, Dad opened the bird house and found this. There are 3 teeny tiny eggs! It's kind of interesting to see that the actual nest is only on one side...the other side is flat. I guess that's so the mama could get into the nest to feed the babies without stepping on them. The nest is mostly made of moss, but there is also some building insulation and lots of Aire-hair! Dad gave the nest to the little girl, next door, so she could take it to school for "show and tell". It's sad that we won't be seeing any Chickadee pups, but at least a whole bunch of school kids will get to see what their nest looks like.
We had some really nasty storms here, last night! Penny was a nervous wreck! She even went to the basement a couple of times. There were some tornadoes not too far from us, but they missed our house. We've got lots of leaves and tree limbs all over the place, but no real damage. We were much more fortunate than the next county over from us! A lot of them have no electricity or cable TV and no one knows how long they will be out! In our subdivision, all of our utilities are under ground, so we very seldom ever loose our electric or cable. We like it that way!
Well, everybody, I'm going back to the china cabinet now. See you next Wheely Wednesday!
PorkChop (and 2 very sleepy doggies...Poppy & Penny)

The birdies on my estate use Mango hair in their nests. I wonder where the momma birdie went to? Hope the bird puppies don't get so fat that they can't fly.

Hi Porkchop!
Bummer about your mom's windshield wipers! We're sure she'd rather be spending that money on something else more important!
What cute Chickadee eggs! I wonder why the mom didn't want to be a mom anymore?

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

I will be around for the rest of this week, Just next week I will be gone...I am sure she was going to the basement cuz she knew the storms were really bad, did you guys follow? Gosh, I sure am glad you guys are okay and the baby blue birdies are doing okay too...Thats kinda cool that the nest with the three eggs got to go to school. Happy 28th mum and dad
Did you see my video on my blog of me sitting pretty? Google video is kinda crappy

Isn't that utterly romantic?

hey Pork Chop, it's good to see you out and about for WW. that's too bad about that mama birdy abandoning her nest. we want to see some baby birdies too. we have a post about some birdies for WW too. hee hee!

that's a pretty expensive windshiend wiper motor thing for your Aire-Mobile. can't Penny and Poppy just hang their heads out the window and lick them clean? oh yeah, we forgot, we can't turn the wipers off. maybe you could just break them off.... or not.... okay, we're too crazy now. time for some play outside.

hey porkchop, congrats to your humans on their anniversary, that stinks they can't celebrate, stupid cars. Too bad humans didnt have wheels attached like you do!

Hello Porkchop
You're sissies are wild matie. You should have seen them pawtying down here in Oz. We're not surprised they're sleeping lots.

Hugs and tail wags

Hey PorkChop,
That is so terrible about your Mama's vehicle. Things are so expensive anymore.

Too bad about the abandoned nest. That happens a lot. Be sure to watch for the baby birds to leave the nest. It's fun watching them.

We know why Poppy & Penny are so tired, we were at the pawty too, hehehehe. We're also glad you didn't get hit by those nasty tornadoes. Those are very scawwiieeeee. Iowa gets lots of tornadoes & the season is just getting started. Have a great week.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers

Hello Pork Chop before i forget i would like to congratulate your mum & dad on their aniversary. Thats a lot of money your mum is paying out ... could you imagine the amount of treats you could get for that.Aww thats a shame about the birdie's nest but thanks for showing us it, i've never seen a birdie's nest before so it's pretty interesting to me more so because i love birdie's. Poppy and Penny sure do look wagged out. They must have stayed up all night at the pawty.

lots of licks
