Holiday Madness

Hi Friends! It’s me – Noodle!

We have had SO much going on here.

Like our other friends in the US, we celebrated Thanksgiving last Thursday. Unlike our other friends, Mom’s turkey didn’t cook. Not because she’s a bad cook but because our oven died mid-cooking! Can you even believe it?!?! Luckily my Grandma moved up here in June and she was able to save the day by taking the turkey to her house so it didn’t go to waste.

The day after Thanksgiving, Macy and Molly who have been hanging out together and being BFFs again decided it was time to have a good ol’ bloody fight. Molly started it and Macy finished it. Macy got Molly’s leg and Molly had to get 5 staples!

No worries though. She’s doing fine and wants to play with Macy again. Oh brother….

Amid all of that chaos, Mom’s been busy with her business From Brush to Stone working on custom Christmas ornaments. She had one person order NINE ornaments – one for each of their fur babies.

*Herculese is the correct spelling of the kitty’s name 🙂

As for me? I’m doing great! It was super cold for FL this morning – 37 degrees! I was running around like a madman. It was making Mom giggle.

Here’s to no more craziness and just holiday cheer!

I’m being watched!

Happy Halloween

What’s everyone dressing up as this year?

I am the devil, Macy is a witch, and Molly is a unicorn.

Molly’s 10th Birthday

Good morning, friends!

Thursday was 4 years since Mom and Dad rescued Molly-dolly. So we celebrated her 10th “birthday” the way we celebrate all birthdays – with a party!

Do you see that ALL of us – me, Molly, AND Macy – were there?! Usually one of the girls is in the bedroom while the other has free range of the house and they switch back and forth all day long. Macy and Molly spent the last week hanging out together and we have been able to be one big family.

To see more pics of Molly’s party, check out my FB page: https://www.facebook.com/Noodle4President/

We post more to FB than we do on here so if you’re on FB, make sure you follow my page!

Play ball!

Whew! I am beat! *Panting*

I just got done chasing a tiny orange that fell off our orange tree and then doing citrus-induced zoomies. I ran and ran and ran!

Then, Mom and Dad played volleyball/Macy-in-the-middle with Macy and she did zoomies!

Finally, Molly went out and played Protect-the-Yard. She takes her job pretty serious and has no time to “play” when the sun’s all but set. That’s when the critters start to come out and she does her first round of maneuvers for the night.

All is good in our house tonight.

A Huge Adventure

Howdy, friends!

You will never guess what I did…

I spent 10 days at a doggy hotel with my sisters!

None of us had ever been to one before so we were a bit nervous. Mom was a wreck because Molly spent 5 months in the pound and because I’m always so afraid of being dropped off the way I was when she found me. Everyone figured Macy would have a great time because she’s a doofus.

I alternated being kenneled with Macy and Molly. We chose not to play with other dogs because there was just so much stuff to smell and look at on our own.

We’ve been exhausted ever since we got home.

Quality Z’s are being had.

It wasn’t bad but I hope we don’t have to go back anytime soon.

It’s my birthday!

Hiiiiiiii friends!

Today is my 8th birthday! Can you even believe it?!

Mom and Grandma (mom’s mom) baked me an allergen-free birthday cake and treats.

It was SO good!

You can see videos of me sharing it with Macy and Molly on my Facebook page here.

Look know shocked I was when I saw my cake:

Mom thinks that’s just the funniest picture.

Here are some better ones (in my opinion):

I am exhausted from partying so hard. Good night, friends!

Noodle the birthday boy

We went to the vet today

Hi friends!

I had a a scheduled dental this morning. I’m very woozy from anesthesia. I like standing by this bowl and crying.

Macy had an unscheduled allergy induced gastritis.

They shot her with fluids and turned her into a camel.

Going to nap now!

*Ear licks*

We’re under attack!

Ok, friends. Last time I was here I told you about the intruder. We all thought a 2nd intruder would make things better. Guess what? We were wrong! Now Mom has been walking around with 2 of them!

Meet Marshmallow Peep – he’s the tiny one that hatched 3 days ago. Peep-ette is 12 days old now.

An egg hatched between Peep-ette and Marshmallow Peep, and then after Marshmallow Peep, but both babies didn’t make it.

12 eggs to go *facepaw*

The good news is that I’m on Mom’s lap right now. We took a nap and I woke up trembling. I can’t explain to her what happened but she’s been holding me for about 30 mins now.

I’m out of sorts. That makes Mom worry.

Anywho, I’m gonna go enjoy some alone time with Mom. Be safe this holiday weekend!

An Intruder

You guys…

An intruder has shown up. Inside my very own home. It’s a small intruder but their presence is MIGHTY…

It goes by the name of Peep-ette.

4 days old

Peep-ette is a golden pheasant that hatched at our house on May 14th. I know you’re thinking, Oh, Noodle! How cute is it?!

WRONG! It is NOT cute. It is an attention hog and it has stolen my Mom.

MY. MOM!

I am extremely displeased with Peep-ette.

Mom: Noodle, we talked about this.

Noodle: No, Mom. YOU talked about this. I had no say in the matter.

Mom: Peep-ette is all alone in this world. None of her clutch-mates have hatched yet. Don’t you think that’s pretty lonely?

Noodle: *sigh* Well, yeah but the couch is lonely without you so now I’ve been spending a lot of time in my crate. That’s how sad I am.

Mom: Soon Peep-ette will have a brother or sister to snuggle with and I’ll be able to snuggle with my best boy all the time.

I need that to happen yesterday! I even tried eating Peep-ette. Mom didn’t let that happen. Not even close. AND I got a bop on the nose.

This is my super displeased face that I use when I look at Peep-ette:

You know who doesn’t mind Peep-ette? Macy! In fact, I think Macy wants to be her mama. Yuck….

“Mom, can I hold Peep-ette?”

Mom keeps Peep-ette tucked in safe:

Usually Peep-ette’s head is all the way down in Mom’s shirt and Mom keeps her hand over him/her just in case. Peep-ette just sleeps and sleeps and sleeps. On my Mom.

MY. MOM!

The sharing of Mom never stops in this house and I will never be okay with it. She was mine first you know!

Anywho, there are 14 more eggs in the incubator. One hatched yesterday but died shortly after the egg broke open. Mom and Dad said that’s to be expected and will more than likely happen to some of the remaining eggs. Hopefully one will hatch soon so Peep-ette will stop stealing my Mom.

Here’s a picture of the 3 adults we have:

The males are the super colorful ones. We used to have 2 females but one dug out and flew away. Mom and Dad are trying to find another one so the other male can have a wifey too.

You know what another wifey means? More eggs. You know what more eggs mean? More Peep-ettes! You know what more Peep-ettes mean? MORE LITTLE MOM STEALERS!

Hmph.
