Busy Little Beavers

It's coming down to the wire now and Mommy has been in full out work mode getting us all ready to head to Florida. We leave in 16 days and will be gone for almost 6 months. She feels like Mr. Miyagi from the movie the Karate Kid. Remember the scene "wax on, wax off?" This is Mommy's version of that scene...

Phone On (in FL), Phone Off (in NY)
Mail On, Mail Off
TV On, TV Off
Newspaper On, Newspaper Off
Garbage Collection On, Garbage Collection Off

Do you catch my drift? It takes a lot of coordinating to be a Snow Bird. There's that word again... How many times do I have to tell ya Mommy that I'm a Doxie NOT a bird.

Then there's the never ending coordinating of getting everyone into the Dr's, getting blood work done and getting written prescriptions to take with us (over 20 of them ~ yes, Grandpa Bob takes most of them), the triming of our nails (because Mom's a woosie and won't do them herself), the hiring of the snow plow man for the season, the firing of the landscaper (because he SUCKED!), the hiring of the new landscaper (because ANYONE with a pair of sizzors could do way better), and let's not forget the ever important task of trying to convince me that my crate is like the Barnum & Bailey Circus.

You know, the BEST place on earth! I HATE MY CRATE! And why all of a sudden am I getting use to the taste of Pill Pocket treats once again?? Oh yeah, I have to be SEDATED for the ride! I would rather be strapped to the roof of the van instead of being locked like a jail bird in my crate for 2 days.

Anywho... Other than that, here are just a few thing's we've all been doing to have some fun inbetween all of Mommy's work.

Daddy took Mommy for a Fall Foliage train ride for her birthday. Daddy seems to forget that Mommy HATES trains! (She hopes to have time in the near future to do a post about the ride.)
Daddy took Mommy out for a special birthday dinner of crab leg's after the train ride. (I think it was to make up for the fact that Mommy HATES trains.)
Took a fall ride in the country to get some apples
Didn't take one picture of any apples!
Enjoyed the earthly sights
Watched the leaves changing colors
Found "Birdhouse Bob" along the way and bought 2 beautiful one's from him
Watched our sweet furend Freeda sleep. Who can resist this beautiful sight!
More birthday crab for Mommy @ Joe's Crab Shak
Spent this feast with her family
Caught up with my one boyfurend Marley
Was more interested in the Caution sign at the pet store
But finally did notice the good stuff. Hey Muffin, the treats are this way...
Had to send Power of the Paw to our furends Nola, Anna Rose, Goose & Stella Rose's Mommy (as she has a broken heart right now) 
Played hide the weenie with Muffin
Had my picture taken like 87 gazillion times by Mommy and her new Smart Phone.
But DANG! I am cute!
Got in some GOOD rides (good aka not in my crate rides)
Watched Mommy start our Christmas Cards on the messy dining room table with the half eatten (thanks Daddy) Halloween Candy amongst the boxes Mommy is packing for Florida mess.
Boo! Did I scare ya?

And finally found some time to take a nap because all that stuff above just plain ol'e tuckered us out!

  1. My my Lily you and your peeps have been well busy. We hope you get some well earned rest this weekend. Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. T minus 16 days! That's very soon!!! It does take a lot of coordination. Being a bird ain't so bad!

  3. I would be so tired after all that too!


  4. We can't tell Dad that your Mom hates trains- that would kill him!

    Glad that your Mom had a great birthday!

    Keep in touch when you move- Tasha can't get enough of her look alike fellow Diva!

    1. Please don't tell Geoff that news.... IN fact, that is the only reason my Mom is going to do the post at all is because Geoff would love it! She took a ton of pictures and got a brochure so she can get all the facts right. If you ever make it this far North (in NY) we would have to take you there.

  5. I'm exhausted just reading about all the work you are doing! You forgot to mention a very important visit next week that you are squeezing in before you head south. Can't wait for next Friday!!!

    Cindy & Millie

    1. Of course I hope you do know.... A meeting like this will require it's very own post! And yes there will be pictures too :)

      We too are excited!

  6. OMD you have a busy life right now BOL. The fall pictures are so beautiful. I hope you are getting all of your toys and treats packed in case they don't have that kind of stuff in that Floridaland. I can't wait to see pictures of you there. I hate being in my crate too. I hope you have a safe trip and sleep lots.

    Loveys Sasha

  7. We're tired just reading about all the stuff you're doing. Love the doxie pumpkin. Sounds like you're going to have lots of great adventures...once you get out of that crate.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  8. Howdy Mates, wowza what a time you have had. That is one busy household. Happy Birthday to your mum. We love your photos especially you two in the car. Sorry about the crate business and hope it's not too stressful. See ya soon. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  9. Oh Lily Belle what a grrrrrreat and FUN FILLED POST... I love the Wax on Wax Off and ending with a FIRING of the Sucky Bush Whacker guy. OMD 16 days until... BLAST OFF... you are REALLY lucky that you don't have to endure the miserable COLD and SNOW.

  10. Whew, that was funny, way to much stuff going on for us, soooooooo glaaaaad we are not going anywhere, don't think we woul survie.

    Your Furiends
    Susie & Bites

  11. Wow, that is so much work to do, Lily. We hope you all have a safe trip and you don't mind the crate too much. We sure hope you only meant you will be gone to Florida for six months and not six months away from the blog?

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  12. Whew, y'all are so busy! Please tell your momma not to work too hard. Girl, I'm telling ya you gotta move down here year round ;)! Ugh, the dreaded NAIL TRIM!!! I hate it, hate it, HATE IT when my nails get cut. Mom says I scream like I'm being murdered, but really I'm just lettin' em know that is NOT how you treat a queen. Please have a furry safe trip, don't want anything happening to my BBFF!
    Love ya lots,
    Pee.S. Thanks so much for your POTP, it worked! I'm back to normal! Mom was really scared, it was the first time I've ever been sick (minus my food allergies)

  13. I love the holidays! Really can't wait for Halloween/Christmas

  14. I LOVEEEEE all your photos .. especially hide the weenie. .that made me giggle. Starting on Christmas cards already? *sigh* I need to figure out who's doing what this year in terms of sending and receiving cards. I kinda slacked off on DBB so I don't think I'll participate in that one this year.

    You're a busy bee!!

    Sarah & le Weens

  15. Woof to you Lily Belle!!!! I am so in love with the pumpkin that has been carved in your likeness. Much love to you, Muffin and your mom - XXOO - Mazzie
