Max on.... Lessons Learned

In my memoir, The Zen of Max, HH wrote little things she learned from me throughout life. She called them Lessons Learned.  I was, of course, glad to be such an inspiration to her... Well, this morning at 4 AM, HH wrote a Lesson Learned from Bugsy....  Are you ready?  Here it is.

Lesson Learned:
Have the &*$%^@! camera ready when Bugsy decides to get his head stuck in a box of Raisin Bran.

Have a great Easy Like Sunday, everybuddy!!!

Bugsy on Knuckles' Nose

There's something special about Knuckles' nose. I must admit that of the two of us, he got the cuter nose. I know this is true because I have had to listen to people ooooooh and awwwwww about it when they see it for the first time. So, today, to embarrass my little brother honor my little brother's nose, I have decided to compile a picture gallery of it.  Enjoy.....

Knuckles: cute nose on the whole face

Cute nose off the face

My favorite shot of Knuckles' nose

The side view, up close and personal.

An extra to save for your computer if you want

And now the critique...  It's Jazz Paws for Knuckles' Nose... all the way...

Have a great day everybuddy....  I am thankful for all of you and for Knuckles' nose.

Max on... a special announcement on Tooona Tuesday

Good Morning..... It's Toooooona Tuesday....

But wait... we have more to celebrate than tuna today. Although tuna is pretty special, we have happy news.

You remember Toni and Mike who took Flat Max on that wonderful trip to New York where he got his paper furs wet at Niagra Falls... and then they took him on that wonderful cruise...(you can see all the adventures of Flat Max Here)

Well, we are happy to announce that they are adopting  this guy.... His name is Sammie and he's just the sweetest boy....

This is one great nose!!! I just love Nose shots.... up close and personal is the only way to go.

WE are so happy for Mike and Toni.  They don't have a blog for Sammie, so we'll bring you progress reports on how he's doing

And here is Sammie practicing for Easy Like Sunday... never enough time to practice...
Anyway, he's settling in nicely and I'll bring you a progress report in a week or two... Oh... They got him from the Florida Dachshund Rescue Inc.  It's a non-profit organization in Florida, Alabama and the Southeastern United States that rescues, transports, fosters and places for adoption those Dachshunds that have been abused, neglected or rejected. They have a great website. Go take a look here.

Well... we know for sure that Sammie will never be ... abused, neglected or rejected ever again... Toni and Mike will take extra special care of him....  So welcome, Sammie, we are so glad you have found a new home.

Have a great Tuna Tuesday everybuddy!!

It's Saturday... Enjoy!!!

Good Saturday Morning to all of you....

HH is running around like crazy pants this morning, cuz she has to get herself ready and get out to a sketch crawl... Don't know what that is, but it's important because it is a worldwide event.  So, we're sitting around here with our heads spinning as we watch her run back and forth in the condo.

We're waiting for you!
We are gonna have a quiet day napping once Ms. Crazy Pants gets on her way.  If'n you want to come over and join us, you're invited.  She won't be home until late afternoon, so we'll have plenty of time to find where she hid the treats.  See you soon....

Max on taking a ride...

Woohooooo.... guess who stopped by yesterday.... Yep. It was Cheryl the Bug Lady. And you know what Bugsy did...? First chance he got, he hopped aboard to go for a ride on her back.  He loves to do that, and luckily, she doesn't mind him doing it.  He just wishes she came more often than every other month.

Well, we're at the door of another weekend.  It's supposed to rain here, so maybe HH will be home to nap with us... Whatever you do, have a good weekend.

And remember... Max loves ya!!!

Bugsy.... Eyes Wide Open

I know.... I know... I just had my turn blogging, but I got permission to take another turn. You see... HH just took this picture of me while I was dozing.  She keeps taking pictures of me while I'm sleeping and I think I might be getting a reputation for being a slacker. But, I'M NOT and I wanted a chance to prove it to you... So,

see, here...... I am in my office with my eyes wide open...

and here I am as a paperweight with my eyes wide open

another office shot with eyes.... how?.... yep... wide open

and here I am under the afghan and my eyes are even wide open here.

Enuf said?  I think so.

In other news.... It's TOOOONA Tuesday.  Everybuddy enjoy.

Bugsy's take on Easy Like Sunday.

I am demonstrating Easy Like Sunday.... How'm I doing?
Good morning, everybuddy.  HH has selected me to show you how to get your easy on. I am very honored. I haven't been given this job before, but I've always thought I could do a pretty good job of it. 

Now you might notice that paw in the middle of my back. Yes, that's Knuckles.  He's giving me a little pat on the back for support while I'm talking to you.  Anyway, this is Sunday and of course we need to relax today... Why? you ask.  Because we need to rest up for the new week of napping that starts on Monday.  You never want to start a new week with a deficit on you napp-o-meter.

So, everybuddy, take your positions.... and get ready..... get set..... nap!!! 

Have a great day.

Max on.. time for another mystery story?

 They boys weren't around when I wrote my first mystery story.  Well, HH took this picture of Knuckles then messed around with it a little and it started me thinking about mysteries and other nefarious things.  So, just saying, it might be time for another mystery adventure... this time starring Knuckles and Bugsy instead of me.  I'll give that some thought. 

In the meantime, have a great Saturday.

And don't forget to send some purrrs to Princess and Prancer Pie.

Bugsy on... The Art Project

Good morning...

It's Thankful Thursday and, it might seem silly, but we're thankful that HH has gotten her painting paper put together and it's hanging up. 

You see, she's taking an online class called BIG.  She has an assignment to paint a painting on four-sheets of paper (each sheet is 25" by 36"  ... so doing the math, the page, once taped together, is about 50" by 72") . That's bigger than Knuckles and me put together. 

Well, yesterday when she was trying to tape the unruly sheets together,  Knuckles and I just naturally thought that she was making some sort of fort for us. After all, she didn't lock us in the bathroom.  You see, we figure that unless we are locked in the bathroom, everything is about and for us.

Well, we guessed wrong, cuz when we started burrowing under the paper and (Heaven forbid) walking on the paper, all sorts of agony and terror noises came out of HH and she kept waving her arms and yelling, "MINE...MINE...MINE..."

So, we were confused and we backed off long enough for her to tape it to the sliding glass door to her studio.  I guess that's where she's gonna paint the picture.  We'll see.  Knuckles and I have ring-side seats for today's activities.  We'll report back.

In the meantime, have a great thankful Thursday and don't forget to stop by and give Prancer Pie and Princess a shout. They are still feeling puny and need our purrrrrrrs.

Princess and Prancer Pie need our Purrrrs.... Please send lots!!!

UPDATE:  Yes, this looks the same as yesterday. That's because I went over to check on Princess and now Prancer Pie is sick too. Same symptoms and everything. Obviously their bean is so upset by this and needs all our support. Please stop by their blog today and give them some much needed purrrrrrs. Thank you so much.

Pawhugs to all of you, Max

Stop by and see Princess. She's not feeling too good.

Sending a little purr to Princess

Stop by and see Princess. She's not feeling too good.

Don't forget it's Tuna Tuesday, too.  Maybe a little tuna would make Princess feel better.  Just hope she gets better quick. That's for sure.

Knuckles ... I'm so helpful.

Hi pals... Max asked me to demonstrate my snoopervision techniques for you.

1.  This is the best position to snoopervise HH writing the blog...

2.  At times, snoopervision isn't enough.... close snoopervision is required.


close snoopervision

Have a great day.

Max on .... strange hole in the curtain... oh noes...!

I know this is a really crummy picture, but it is with HH's phone and at night. The point was... HH was sitting in the living room, looked and saw this hole in the sheer curtain. 

MOL....It's the perfect shape of someone's head.  Just saying.  HH was going to compare the heads to the hole, but decided the damage was done.  We're buying new curtains and moving on.  The boys get a pass on this one.

Max on... Easy Like Sunday

Good Morning, Pals...

No better place to take it Easy Like Sunday than on an unfinished quilt. So, this quilt is finished and hanging on the wall now, but those times I could sneak on it while HH was making it were the best. I'm gonna dream about them today during my naps...

Have a great Sunday everybuddy.
