November Thankfuls - Sunny's Health

This November, we thought we would do something a little different and fill the month with "Thankfuls".  2022 has been quite a year. We started out with a big move from California to New Mexico and with the humans coming out of their "lock down". 
Everything seems to be going great..... 
Then we got stuck in a whole bunch of "yucky". 
CeCe broke, I(Sunny) broke and things just haven't been too swell lately. We know we aren't the only ones,  Mama says something called the "economy" isn't doing good in the world. Plus, there are still those in Florida that are recovering and rebuilding after Ian.
Mama, Rosy, Jakey and I thought November would be a great time to remember all the "Thankfuls"(things to be thankful for) in our lives. It's going to be like Brian's, Thankful Thursday, but all month!!
Don't worry, we will still have Nature Friday's(we have so much nature to be thankful for) and still will participate where we can in the other daily blog hops.
 I(Sunny) get to start the month of thankfuls off with the good report I got from my Dogtur last week. My patella(knee cap) is still where it is supposed to be. In our house, that is definitely something to be thankful for!!
We hope all our friends can find something to be thankful for today!

Stormy Weather on NF/FFF


Welcome to that wonderful Friday each month where Nature Friday comes together with YAM Aunty's FFF!!  Make sure to visit YAM Aunty HERE to get the Rulez and join the FFF fun!!


 The weather here in the high desert has been topsy turvy lately.
One day there is nice Autumn weather and the next, it's windy, stormy and yesterday we even had SNOW FLURRIES! Unfortunately, they didn't stick...
In honor of Halloween and the silly weather I wrote this poem for YAM Aunty's FFF this month:
Stormy Weather
by Rosy 
The skies are dark,
the winds are strong
I bark and bark
like somethings wrong.
Mama says shush,
but it's too spooky,
She says nothing's out there,
and I'm acting kooky. 

Daddy says it's just a storm,
and I shouldn't fear
For they are the norm,
this time of year.

But here I will park,
between the door and the wall
and here I will bark,
until the end of Fall!

Thankful for Black Cats, Dogs and..Birds??

 Today is National Black Cat Day. Being a black dog, I think it is important to honor our black felines too. They are often looked over at the shelter because of silly human myths about being bad luck. Sheesh, sometimes humans are soooo silly!!
Mama's childhood cat was a black kitty named Pywacket(after the cat in the the ancient movie Bell, Book and Candle)! She was a snuggle bug and never hurt a flea. OK, she did like to hunt mousies but you can't blame her for that.
That silly raven, Speckles, is behind me, isn't he? He wants me to remind you that black birdies also get a bad rap. Although, the way they bully the other birds at the bird feeder, I can understand why!

But today, we are especially thankful for all the black cats out there!
Remember to spread the word that you shouldn't judge a kitty, puppy, birdy, human or any living thing...by it's color!

Batty Sunny Funny

 Whew, it's nice to be out of that Monkey outfit.! In fact, things seem to be going a little batty around here today...teeheehee

How about a nice Vampire Bat funny today?

Why are vampire bats so unpopular?

Because they’re a massive pain in the neck!


We are joining Sandee at  Comedy Plus for the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop this week!


Monkey Awwws

 Another thing I like do, while my knee gets better, is the occasional photo shoot. Of course, I would much rather be a scary lion or a wicked witch than a silly monkey. It could be worse though, I hear my Angel sister Dory had it really rough one Halloween....

In case you haven't heard this story, you can read it by 
Poor Dory, Mama really pulled one over on her, didn't she?

Other than this silly monkey costume,  I'm doing good and feeling great!! I go for my first follow up visit at the Doctor this
Wednesday and I'll fill you in on how it went next week.

Autumn Comes to Our Backyard

Autumn has officially arrived here in the high desert of New Mexico!

The temperatures are dropping into the 40s and staying that way until the sun is up!

 and LOOK...we actually have a maple tree changing color!
Mama is so excited!!
 Our tree started off yellowish brown and turning a bit redder everyday!

 We've had all kind of birdies stopping by and saying hello..

 The road runners have been passing through looking for lizards....
 This Northern Flicker has been hanging out near our bird feeders

 ...and the noisy scrub jays like to boss the rest of the birdies around!
All in all, we are loving our first Autumn in New Mexico
 How are you liking Autumn so far??

Show us your nature! It can be flowers, your current weather, a scene out of your window, or maybe a picture from a vacation, walk or other journey! Any kind of nature picture will do! If you don't see the link below, click HERE  to go to our Hoppity Page.



Thankful for Daddy Weekends!

Daddy and I had a great trip in CeCe last weekend!!
It was filled with long walks and lots of snuggles.
(and maybe some cheese too!) 
 Mama took this picture right before we left Friday morning. I was a little scared riding in CeCe without Sunny and Jakey but, after a little while, I curled up and took a nap for the short 45 minute ride to the RV park!

 We stayed at a nice place called the Santa Fe Skies RV Park.

 It was a pretty park, pawfect for long relaxing walkies!
 Plus...they had BUNNIES!!! I had lots of fun pulling Daddy 
from one camp site to the next trying to catch one!

Friday night, Daddy and I "Face Timed" Mama!
It was the first time I ever recognized her on the telephone. I couldn't smell her, which was weird, but it was nice to see her!
 Mama came to see us on Saturday morning. We went for a nice hike and found a bunch of old machinery. Mama was there, so of course, we had to do a little photo shoot!

 I wanted to go for a ride in this old truck, but Daddy said the tires were flat and it wouldn't go very far.
 This truck didn't even have a door handle to get in, so I settled for sitting on the outside floor board. 
 It was such a beautiful day.  I was so happy to have Mama and Daddy to myself for a little while and I was smiling from ear to ear!

After our hike, Mama went back home and I had a much needed nap. I'm glad I did because that night it started raining. It gets very loud in CeCe when it rains, so I ended up not getting much sleep.  Daddy and I decided to head home a little early on Sunday because it was still raining. We were both getting pretty soggy on our walkies, plus we missed Mama, Jakey and Sunny.
Even though we had to leave early, we had a great time.
 I am so very thankful I got to spend some quality time with Daddy and go for a trip in CeCe before she hibernates for the Winter!
