Wheelie Wednesday...and we are freezing...AGAIN!

Hello, furry and not-so-furry friends! It's me, PorkChop! I'm sorry I haven't been around much, lately, but our stupid mom keeps missing Wheelie Wednesday! She keeps saying something about being too busy, but I don't think that's a good excuse! What could be more impawtent than blogging for us doggies?
On Monday, our mom and Aunt Wendy got everything set up in the new antique booth. On the first trip, they took all the shelves and tables. Then, they came back and got all the stuff they hope to sell. They had it all set up by noon. Of course, it rained the whole time they were carrying stuff in, but at least they were able to back up almost to the door! Mom says it looks good...now we just hope they sell everything!
We are very proud winners of one of the knitted Christmas stockings that Maggie and Mitch's mom made. We guessed, correctly, that Mitch's favorite fruit is apples and Maggie's most hated fruit is lemons. We just loooooove this stocking! M & M's mom is soooooo talented! Thank you, very much, Maggie, Mitch and of course, your MOM!

This morning, Mom cleaned our dog feeding room. It isn't easy since there is a freezer and an extra refrigerator in there. It doesn't leave much room for her to turn around. Penny was very nervous the whole time Mom was in there. She moved Penny's bowls out into the kitchen and that made Penny freak out. She went into the feeding room and wouldn't get out so Mom could finish cleaning. Mom finally lured her out with a treat and then had to get back in there before Penny did! Penny's one weird doggie...she doesn't like it when Mom starts moving anything around...especially her food and water bowls.

Poppy has been hanging out in the office, this morning, where the computer is. Dad was in there, taking pictures of stuff to put on Ebay, and then Mom went in to take a picture of the stocking. Poppy always shows up for picture taking so she can be in the way, mostly! I think she's always hoping there might be a new stuffie that she can snag. Sorry, Poppy, no new stuffies today!

This is a broken spring on our garage door! Yesterday, our mom went to go over to the neighbor's and when she came back in and closed the door, there was a very loud noise. Dad asked what it was and Mom said she didn't know. She looked back out in the garage, but didn't see anything out of place. Later, when she went to go get the mail, the door wouldn't open. Of course, she called Dad because that's what she ALWAYS does when something doesn't work. He checked it out and found the broken spring. Someone is coming to fix it, today and we hope they don't freeze to death! It's about 10 degrees, here, this morning, with a wind chill of minus 1 degree! Everytime those real doggies go outside, Mom tells them to hurry up before they have nose-cicles! We don't have any snow, but it's waaaaaaaaaaaay too cold outside!
We hope everydoggie is staying warm! Oh...except our buddies in Australia where it's summertime! We hope they are staying cool. I'm going back in my china cabinet now, where it's toasty warm and safe from the jaws of the real doggies!
PorkChop (and the 3 P's too)

I am holding my own answer to Westminster (Mango minster). You can see on my bloggy.

I was wondering if the three of you would like to judge the terrier competition. I would send you the entry photos and you just tell me who wins. I am concerned that the terriers might get out of hand and I figured the three of you could keep them in line.

Let me know,

Sounds like some ambitious projects are taking place at your house - when things get moved around here, I tend to get a little bit anxious, especially if I spy a suitcase entering the bedroom, know what I mean?!!

Wags, Eric xx

Hi PorkChop! Wow, it sounds really cold there! We're having a "cold snap" right now - it's 49 degrees, which is really cold for South Florida - brrr - we're used to 80 degrees and humid. I hope they get your garage door fixed soon!

That's great your Mom got eerything set up and it's very bad the garage door is broken. Mom would have called Dad, too cuz that's what she does when something doesn't work right. Good luck to your Mom's shop! I hope she makes lots and lots of money!!

It is totally too cold everywhere. Poor Penny. I understand. I don't like it when things move around either.

You ladies certainly have your work cut out at Mango Minster. I might need to hire bodyguards for you!
