Wild Wednesday Weather

Tuesday we heard on the news that we would be getting one round of wild weather at midnight on Wednesday and then another round at 7 Wednesday morning. So as per usual we loaded up the car and headed for the hotel. But as we got there the radar was clear, so grandma didn't know if we should stay or go home. After talking it over we decided to go home. Just as we were getting off at our exit momma saw a post from the Weather Athority saying that we were in a TORNADO WATCH so back to the hotel we went. My my what a way to send an hour and a half than driving up and down I-24!

Since our favorite hotel was booked we had to stay next door at Days Inn.

Once we got checked in I went straight to bed.

Hammy sat and cried. He didn't understand what was going on. But after a milk bone snack he calmed down and went night night.

All night there were small pop up storms but nothing severe. Then at 6 am or so the big one hit. Luckily our area was spared but up in Paducah, KY there was a lot of homes damaged. And in Harrisburg, IL there was tornado that tore apart their city. We sent puppy prayers for all those who were in the hard hit areas.

Here is what it looked like on the iPhone

And here is what it looked like out our hotel window. Major rains, quite a few rumbles of thunder and gusty winds.

About 8AM the last of the storms blew through and it was safe fur us to go exploring....

... leave a pee-mail...

...or two.

Then we loaded up the car and headed fur home.

Whew what a wild Wednesday!

Introducing Hamilton da Porkadoodle

This is Hamilton (Hammy for short) and he is our new foster brother. He is a purebred PORKADOODLE (mommy-ism). A porkadoodle is a pomeranian, yorkie and poodle mix breed dog. The breeder that he came from is the same breeder we got Jackson, Lily, and Jack from in the past. This litter was an OOPS litter. Since he is not a desired breed (more mutt than anything) she had trouble getting them homes and well thats how he ended up in rescue. I don't think we will have a hard time finding him a home, humans seem to think he is cute or whatever. I kinda think he looks like a dust bunny but what do I know. BOL!

The black and tan smooth coat dog is Hammy's momma. She is supposedly a yorkie pom mix. However momma thinks she has either chihuahua or rat terrier in her bloodline. She is about 10-12 pounds.

This is Hammy's daddy. He is pure poodle. He is about 6-8 pounds and quite the charmer. He kept coming up to momma and wanted her full attention.

When we picked him up he cried and cried and cried some more. He must have missed his siblings and his momma.

Hammy says "What is that large white thing there?"

Well Hammy that Uncle Puppy, a poodle mix like you. Then Uncle Puppy gave him the old sniff down.

And in true Uncle Puppy fashion kept sniffing.

After sniff-fest momma got this candid shot.

Then Hammy stretched his wee little neck upward to sniff Uncle Puppy.

Uncle Puppy is happy to have a new furiend.

When we got home Hammy became furry wiggly and as soon as we put him on the puppy pee pee pad... he made a big pee.

After the big pee it was time fur a bath.





Poor little thing cried for an hour over the bath trauma.

Saturday he goes to the vet to get his puppy vaccinations started. I has a feeling I am going to have to go with him and I has a feeling that he is going to cry! So I better back some ear plugs in the doggie bag.

Mollie's Mango Minster Adventures and BIG WIN

Mango Minster is one of the most prestigious shows in all of Blogville.

After reading all of the category descriptions I decided to enter under the TOO DARN CUTE category.

Since I was one of the first ones to enter the category I was invited to go on the 2012 Mango Minster Pre-show adventure. Last years adventure had a few odd moments but I was ready!!!!

We had our own private doggie jet but things went awry just after take off...

While helping with some mechanical work I made sure to remain TOO DARN CUTE in my pink hard hat!

As we were in Austria things went awry yet again. HMMM....

Then we were off! We loaded up the doggie-craft and were ready to head to....

KANSAS. Where is Toto?

The Ao4 hosted us and we all had a blast eating pizza and drinking doggie beers!

Some of the others had a wee bit too much doggie beer and well I am kind of small and I got rolled!

Then we got to see the Kansas ocean.

So relaxing!

As usual things went awry again and I got attacked while relaxing on the Kansas Ocean....

Thankfully Fiona was there to save me!

The plane ride home was uneventful and I got some beauty rest!

Once back home it was time for the competition to start. Here is what Mango had to say bouts my entry:
I have observed this little vixen totally charming the folks at the doggie store on many an occasion with her over the top adorableness all riding around in the shopping cart and whatnot. I have no doubt that pawtographed copies of her official photo are available for all of you that find her charms irresistible.

Then the Judges hard work began. They had to gather and review all the entries.

Here is what Fiona had to say bouts my Mango Minster Entry:
Mollie Jo -- You are a little old lady poodle doggie. What’s not to love? I mean, you get in the spirit for the Kentucky Derby (complete with dress and hat), you open your home to little foster doggies. You tolerate Uncle Puppy (who is clearly Abby’s twin from another mother…). You have more clothes than Pfizer has pills. You even have your own leg warmers! AND you do snow zoomies. Of course, you are also Painfully Cute. Really, what more can I say?

The TOO DARN CUTE category was the first category to be judged and I was awarded first place!!!!! I won my category in Mango Minster!!!! Can you believe it?!?!? I was a bit worried as there was some stiff competition but my cuteness reigned supreme!

After hearing of my big win I wrote this acceptance speech:
I would first like to give big bark and high paw to Mango and his momma fur hosting this most fun event in all of blogville!!! I would also like to thank the judges for all of their hard work in making the selections. I am honored to have been crowned TOO DARN CUTE!!!! It takes a lot of practice and a lot of shopping to achieve this level of cute and will continue to bring my fans cute pictures throughout the year. Mango Minster 2012 has been a wild and pawsome ride. As for the BEST IN SHOW, I say vote with your heart and may the best pooch or horse win!!!!

To my surprise my momma had a gift waiting fur me...

Its a doggie star tag! Thank you momma

Uncle Puppy?????

While we was pawtying fur Valentines Day Uncle Puppy went to visit Annette at Bubbles and Beds. Now I think Annette done gave Doggy Nanny the wrong doggie....

...This doggie has not mustache, no furry-ness (Mollie-ism), and looks awfully poodle-y (Mollie-ism). So we called Annette and she verified that this was the only poodle doggie she groomed that day and it was in fact Uncle Puppy.

The lack of furs and mustache have seemed to make him more aerodynamic and able to run much faster.

We could barely keep up with him.

So we plotted a two poodle sneak attack and were able to catch him!
