Mystery Solved and TWO Great Gifts!

Well, we have solved the mystery for Lillie! Everyone always blames the terrier but as I hung out investigating, and Tanner hung out smooching with Lillie I found this...

Lillie's brother Mr. Whiskers seems to have a little obsession with the PS2! I don't know what game he was playing here but as soon as he saw me he ran for cover...

You can't hide from Joe Stains!! Lillie's name is cleared and Tanner was able to get some kissy time in with his wife. Thanks Aire Ruby for the ride!!!

We got some great gifts this week. One came from our friend Patience who if you don't know is a great author and servant to NINE whippets. She wrote a story and named one of the characters JOE, after ME! I fell over I was so humbled! Read the story, but grab some tissues, you might get some leaky eyes! THANKS Patience, what an honor!

Also this week my Mom got a great gift from her boss. Mom and Dad got engaged last summer and her boss made her this quilt because she said Mom doesn't have a Mom of her own to make her something like this to have forever. I wanted to post it here because its so pretty and because I wanted our buddies at the Army of Four to see it because their human does beautiful quilts too.

Mom doesn't let us on it, I don't know why!!

I hope you all are having a great weekend. BASEBALL IS ON TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, WOOOOO! Joe, that is GORGEOUS! Look at all those wonderful colors! And the "sashing" really ties it all together so nice. Woo. GREAT job! I love the quilting design, too (I went to your FlickR page!). Thanks for sharing that - your mom's boss is REALLY talented - and KIND!

Hey, Weren't there some sneakers with that quilt once upon a time? The black trim really makes that quilt kicky! Joe, Are you pinning the crime on the labradude? Or sort of labradude? Well, he probably did do it. C'est la vie.

Mom said that was the most beautiful quilt she has ever seen!
She luuuuvs pretty flowers like that.

Joe, I'm not surprised you solved this case. Mr Whiskers should be ashamed! He carries the dang controller all over the house!!!!

Joe that is the most beautiful and colorful blanket we have ever seen! Your mom is going to really enjoy using that!
Oh, thought I'd let you know, since our Mom has been feeling sorry for Ozzie she sent Dad by Petsmart yesterday and he came home with one of those cool corn shanks Tanner likes so much and a little BBQ rib! Of course Ozzie hasn't felt much like playing with them yet so I've been busy breaking them in. Hee Hee!

That is like the most amazing quilt I have seen! All the colors are so lovely and it gives me a happy feel when I look at it... Your mom sure has a good boss, my mom's not sure her (male) boss will ever make a quilt for her.. (maybe not even a handkerchief.. Hehehe)

Man, you are one internationl DOG of mystery! Case closed. (Bet Tanner enjoyed getting some smooch time in with his wife.)

That quilt is BOOTIFUL! I'm an afficionado of all things blanket-related, and I'm telling you, you're missing out on this one, Joe. That looks like one FAB sleeping accessory. Try to catch some zzzz's on it and let us know if it's as comfy as it looks.

Your mama's boss must LOVE her. How cool.

Goober love & quilt-getting smooches,
