3 Boys on a Couch

My mom has been so busy she hasn't been online in 6 days! The first item we need to announce is that I co-won the Scary Halloween Costume contest on Dogs With Blogs!!! I tied with Homer (he had a really awesome costume) and I get to pick out a prize from the DWB store. I'll be sure to post about it when I get it! Thanks for voting for me :P
Second item which is a little sad - our pretty orange canary, Edward, died yesterday. He was pretty old and had been sick for awhile. My mom says she's relieved that he is happy and healthy again flying around the Bridge with his bride Sylvia. I'm sure he's singing all of his songs, even the one that sounded like a car alarm. So now there are no birds at all in my house! Only 2 dawgs and 2 cats...
My mom wanted to share these pictures with all of you. She calls the series, "Three Boys on a Couch" for obvious reasons. We are getting new couches this weekend and my mom is so excited you'd think she was a kid at Christmas! She says the new couches are going in another part of the living room so me and the cats can't climb up on the kitchen counter any more. That'll work for me and Libby but I can guarantee you that Tommy will still be on the counter.
Finally, my mom has been busy, busy, busy cleaning out and fixing up Leah's room. Leah will be home for Thanksgiving on November 21st and my mom wanted to have it all done for her. Mom painted the room three different colors - very bright yellow, a softer yellow and white. She pulled up the carpet and treated the wood floors, installed some new quarter round for the molding and saddles for the closets and new wooden blinds. The room looks great and is soooooo clean. The door is shut all the time now so me, Ziggy and the cats can't go in there. Not fair! I need to mark that room as my own...

Poor Edward. He was such a good bird and had beautiful songs. At least he is in a better place with Sylvia.

Love Jessie <3

Khongrats on the khouches -

sorry about the khanary -

Mom had several of them when she was a little girl - that was probably furry early on in the evolution of birds!

New couches-how nice. You guys look pretty comfy on the old one though even though your face is hidden by your brother's paws.

Sorry your house is so quiet. I bet you are missing Edward alot.

Your friend

Congratulations on the new couches!

Congratulations on the win! You were a very scary lobster! Those were good pictures of all the boys. My mom says for your mom to come visit and help finish all her projects--it's taken her years to do half what your mom has done. The new bedroom sounds very pretty.

love & wags,

Hi Pedro
Glad you won! Sorry about Edward. Your pictures are cozy looking. My humans usually go to Copper cause the bearded one works there sometimes. But now Loveland has good snow. (Real soon I guess much more will be open)Hope your mom gets to her one of her favorite places.


Moco said...

You really have had a busy week. we voted for you in the contest and am glad that you were a winner.
You are looking very comfortable with those other two guys on the sofa.
Where are the pictures of the new room?

Congrats Pedro on winning the costume contest! Sorry to hear about Edward. Fly free now!

A new couch? That'll be really comfy!

JB's Big World said...

Congrats Pedro on your win! I knew you would win......you looked, uh, awesome as a lobster!
It is so nice that you snuggle together on the couch like that....I don't know if I will ever be able to snuggle with Bear. He is getting bigger every day. Maybe I should learn from you. But then Bear will never be allowed on our new couches....hopefully you will be allowed on yours!
So sorry to hear about your bird brother, Edward, going to the bridge. I will send some purrs over......and how is Libby today. Is she still not feeling well? I will purray really hard that Libby gets well again. Tell her, that if she needs tips if she has to go to bathroom jail, to let PooPoo know!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

The room sounds awesome. Maybe sis needs to come to our house so Mom and Dad will finish ours???
They are hoping to get close over the holidays since we aren't going anywhere and Mom has a lot of time she needs to take or loose it..

Big Sloppy Kisses

Hi Pedro,

Congrats on the contest, I can't wait to see your prize.

I love your photos, especially the one with your head covered by the big paw, hee hee.

So sorry about your canary, R.I.P

Hugz & Lickz

JB's Big World said...

How is Libby today?
I forgot to tell you that PooPoo is taking medicine now, and it is really made for dawgs! The vet gave us some Reconcile which is for separation anxiety for dogs, but it also works for cats with peeing and pooping problems.....uh, and it is a form of prozac!

Jemma said...

Congratulations on the win!

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

Congrats on your co-win, Pedro! We're sorry about Edward. We hope he's very happy now. We've never had any inside birdies...just the Bluebirds outside. Ask you mom if she wants to move in with us...we have lots of rooms that need to be redone!

Poppy, Penny & Patches

Congrats on the win, That was a scary lobster. Sorry about your birdie friend, it always stinks when a friend leaves.

Maybe if you wait for just the right moment, someone will leave the door open to that room so you can properly mark it and make sure it's secure.

Amber said...
