Pre-Christmas Fun…

Shih Poo Tales

Today’s story is a treasury of
Little Lion’s Birthday,
Halloween
The Elf on the Shelf 
The Gingerbread Man

and

the Dollywood Christmas Parade.

Exciting, is not it!

WOW five fun things all in one story!

“Good things come in three”
The Elf on the Shelf says,
“and more than three
is a Santa treat!”

Grrr… Good question Elf on the Shelf… Grrr.

 We had an extremely nice Halloween
this year
with Empress Zoe Labrador,
Little Lion,
the “Young Mistress” who arrived with
lots of Halloween goodies for all
and
a lot of Halloween decorations
and elaborate Halloween lights.

Some of them could have been from prince
Dracula’s Castle in Transylvania.

Scary… scary…

That was Then and This is Me (Zoe) Today!

Empress Zoe Labrador  and “sister feline Hope”.

“Together we have a lot of fun visiting Little Lion!”

We were not bewildered by all the haunting
“No Siree!”
nor were our little and big
Halloween visitors.

We liked all the “Trick or Treaters”
and were liked a lot, too.
After five hours we ran out of goodies
and had given away 78 treat bags

and

Halloween fun surprises
like spiders, rings and pencils
and put up the “Out of Goodies” sign.

It drizzled a bit this year and that
made “Mistress Mommy” aka
“The Blog Muse”
think about this poetic quote:

“Water that runs writing its own language”
~Pablo Neruda~

Poet Pablo Neruda travelled extensively.
Being intrigued by the sea he called
himself an “estuary sailor” who
preferred
to look at it from the dry land.

Zoe and I would rather be
“Pirates ruling the Sea.”

Both Pablo Neruda and his beloved spouse
Urrutia are buried outside the beautiful
Isla Negra home.

If you ever visit Isla Negra don’t forget
to visit Pablo Neruda.

“Look between the stone and the ocean”
wrote the famous poet in
“I Will Come Back.”

He-He-He go on a Halloween night
you may just get a glimpse
of the famous man himself.

I had a fabulous birthday party
just the day before Halloween.
I got a few nice presents and goodies.
The one I like the best is a red bone light.
It’s a present from the “Young Mistress”.
Empress Zoe Labrador and the felines
surprised me with a lot of goodies.

So did “Mistress Mommy”
and the “Lad Upstairs”!

He-He-He I call him the Food Hunter!

 “Hey Mommy were are the leftover goodies?
I’m sure, we did not eat them!”

“Hmm… good question Little Rascal.
Perhaps the Elf on the Shelf hid them
somewhere… but where I would not know.”

Grrrr…. I’m going to search soon
for that Elf on the Shelf Mommy!”

“You do that, Little Lion!” 🙂

“Later Mommy!”

First I like to tell about November 14th.

I went to a grooming salon.
I never like bathing very much.
Shampoo and me don’t agree.
Everyone was very nice but I was glad
to be back home again.

“Home is where the heart is!”
That’s where I feel “King of the Castle!”

The other day we got news from the North Pole!

Santa at the North Pole reported that

the Elf on the Shelf scouts are roaming
the land. It’s almost December,
Watch out for them!
The scouts report every night in December
to Santa about all that’s happening.

Here is a dazzling sweet cider recipe:

PJ Parties Anyone?…

Shih Poo Tales
By

Guess what the Little Rascal has come up
with since he overheard me

talking about the 250 ladies
in our fair city who celebrated on
October 19, 2017
their fourth annual pyjama party.

http://wswbrampton.com/

More about the recent WSW fun event
at a later date.

Now Little Lion desires a
Snoopy PJ Birthday-Halloween party
for his sixth canine birthday.

Because during the 2016 WSW PJ party
the Baron Bandits not only won for best PJ’s
they stole Little Lion’s heart as well.

Who can blame the little rascal as they
are shown here with his favorite bear
and Snoopy gear!

http://wswbrampton.com/pyjama-party-for-team-buttercup-run-for-the-cure/

And then there are
the Stick tree people the little rascal is
very fond of since he saw a photo
of a doggie posing by the
Pooktre Stick People.

Can you blame him,
the Pooktre Stick People are stunning!

The last we heard about the
“Mom and Dad” of the Pooktre Stick People
was that the family was off to Portugal.
Not sure how they are doing in Portugal
as Portugal this year had to struggle
with many forest fires.

However, anyone interested in growing
Pooktre Dancers or other
Stick Tree People and artsy things check:

(http://pooktre.com/)

Feline friend “Droppie” of The Netherlands
hopes that her mistress beau
will plant a stick tree in their garden.

Even if you don’t wish to try to grow
Pooktre Stick People they
are fun to see them in parks and gardens.

Djerril who also resides in The Netherlands
told Little Lion that he thinks his
Mistress is already growing a stick tree.

Grrr… woof-woof Grrr…

Djerril may be right!

The other day “Mommy” and I passed a house
with a sign in the glass screen door that
read: “Potential dangerous dog on premises.”

LOL! They only own a sleepy feline.

“Mistress Mommy” said that the feline
could be an “attack cat in disguise.”

I rolled over the boulevard for 3 minutes.
I could not stop. The thought was so silly.

When we came home Mommy saw the nose prints
on the glass screen door and this gave
her the idea to place this sign
in our screen door.

to let my fellow canines and their owners
know that I am an artsy Shi Poo.

Right away I ran to tell the “Lad Upstairs.”

“Gotcha little artist” he said and
started bathing me. but I got him, too.

As soon as I thought “enough is enough”
I got out of there and flew downstairs
and made a few rounds through the hall
and the living and dining room as I let
the lad run after me with an extra large
beach towel to dry my fur.

“He-He-He, me was faster than he!”

LOL, I may be a famous runner
and artist soon!

BOO-Boo-Boo
See you all next time on Halloween!

PJ Party come one come all!

ZZZZZZZ Goodnight!

Sleep Tight!

Heartfelt thanks to everyone for the
animations, Droppie and Djerril photos,
links and the artists and video makers.

All other photos as usual by ”Mommy”
and the snappy photographer,
he-he-he that’s
“Little Rascal-Woofie” me!.

With thanks to the makers enjoy,

Fun Things Come in Three…

Shih Poo Tales
By

Dolly Parton knows dreams can come true.
But only if you hold on to them.

So, too a wish to travel, teach homeschooling and…
finding your stolen Gypsy Waggon.

 Welcome Fans, Family and
Friends New and Old,

Little Lion says:
“Woof-Woof!
This is my dreamy kind of fun.
Traveling to and fro all over the Globe
in a Gypsy Waggon.
Grrr-Grrr-Grrr!

First an imagination library link
by the famous songstress Dolly Parton:

http://ca.imaginationlibrary.com/

AND… a Bug Book.

“Grab your Bucket and Search.”

A fun story to read.

Little Lion bets that
The “Young Mistress”
would fall in love with:

http://www.suefliess.com/the-bug-book

I think he may be right about that.

Travel Fun!

“The In-Thing to do” as per the Lad Upstairs,
that’s if you can get your parents to travel
and home-school you and your siblings.

For parents with school-age children
who love to travel for a long period
homeschooling may be THE answer. 

Check homeschooling in Ontario

http://ontariohomeschool.org/

And don’t forget to check the kindle
e-Handbook of Nature Study by
Anna Botsford Comstock (Amazon)

https://archive.org/details/handbookofnature002506mbp

It may give you and your child
an idea to write and publish
an e-storybook or an e-travel journal.

Would not that be fabulous?
It may attract a publishing company.

Such as this children’s book:

“Paddle-to-the-Sea”
by Holling C. Holling.

You never will know unless you try it!

Dream a bit and

“Paddle”

with your child inside this book.

Last but not least…

something “Mistress Mommy”
aka The Blog Muse and Little Lion
 often dream about…

http://gypsywaggons.co.uk/index.htm

Enjoy the beauty and art!

With these dreamy gypsy waggons we end
our adventure search fun from our armchair
and Little lion’s Lookout!

All is silent there for a change.

Don’t forget,

Halloween fun is coming soon!

With heartfelt thanks to everyone for
the links and animations, which bring
magic and joy to the written word and
enrich our knowledge and increase our laughs,
keeping us joyful and young at heart.

Photos as usual by
“the Blog Muse” aka “Mistress Mommy”
and the snappy photographer,
he-he-he that’s
“Little Rascal-Woofie” me.

 G o o d b y e!

Until next time, usually on a Saturday,
enjoy a very talented beautiful young lady
and her exquisite ventriloquist puppets.

Dear Fans, Friends and Family,

Heartfelt thanks to Word-Press and the Lad-Away.

Now we can post again!

We wll have to do a “raindance” as the
September days are getting much too hot
to do a lot of necessary work.

So, just dance and thump with us that we
may be blessed with a refreshing rainfall.

Thinking about the myth of the raindance
 we found this interesting website link.

https://www.csicop.org/sb/show/the_myth_of_the_rain_dance

Little Lion enjoyed the UK video here below
and would love to attend, too.

With heartfelt thanks to everyone for
the links and animations, which bring
magic and joy to the written word and
enrich our knowledge and increase our laughs.

Photos as usual by
“the Blog Muse” aka “Mistress Mommy”
and the snappy photographer,

That’s all on this extremely hot day!

Have fun, see y’all next time!
In the meantime enjoy this great UK furry
camaraderie and learning idea.

Many Laughs a Day Keeps the Curmudgeon Away…

Shih Poo Tales
By
*Little Lion*
A N D
*Gypsy Joy*

Hallo Everyone, Young and Old!

Smell the flowers…

Hear Ya, Hear Ya!

The little rascal insists
“That the numbers  1, 3, 33 and 133
must be his lucky numbers.
Why?
’cause he is living in a house
numbered 133.”

We think we are very lucky that our
“Tuxedo”
Shi Poo with a forever wagging lion plume
feels lucky living under our roof.

He-He-He Mistress Mommy “Tuxedo”
tickles my funny bone.
Now I have to roll over the carpet!

Ha-Ha-Ha Little Lion that always tickles
my funny bone when you do that.
It makes me and your playmates
laugh
so much, that I almost fall off my chair.

Laughing is good for you.
I read somewhere
that children laugh 300 times a day
and adults perhaps 40 times or less.

A pity!

True or myth, I can’t tell.

But if it is true no wonder there are
a number of curmudgeons around us.

“Thus, if there is no toddler in the house
to keep you laughing
get a Shi Poo or any other pet that
makes you laugh and laugh and laugh.”

Good thinking Little Lion!

 Pets make you smile and laugh a lot!

Can you believe this folks…

My enthusiastic talk about pets
prompted Little Lion and his play mates
to demand a pet of their own.

Guess what…

The crew wants a Praying Mantis and
they know exactly were to find this
highly amusing and interesting pet
and how to catch a mantis!

http://www.wikihow.com/Take-Care-of-a-Praying-Mantis.

“That’s right fans and since
“Mistress Mommy” aka the “Blog Muse”
doesn’t like to catch bugs, I called
the “Young Mistress”
who is not squeamish about touching bugs.

We will keep you posted if a Praying Mantis
will be entering door number 133.
And keep on laughing and counting your laughs.

The link below can tell you all about it.

http://www.bellylaughday.com/laughteractivities/gotosleepcountingyourlaughs.html

Give it a try!
Grin-Grin, Grr…Grr… Grin-Grin

Surprise!

It was Empress Zoe Labrador’s 7th birthday
on September the 5th but we will be
celebrating it with a big bang in the
near future when the Young Mistress
will be visiting us.

 That’s all for today!

With heartfelt thanks to everyone for
the links and animations, which bring
magic and joy to the written word and
enrich our knowledge and increase our laughs.

This link will bring a lot of laughs, too.

https://www.frasercoastchronicle.com.au/news/dogs-can-drive-heres-proof/1648559/

Grrr… Hurray!

Now I can learn to drive! Grrr…

 

Photos as usual by
“the Blog Muse” aka “Mistress Mommy”
and the snappy photographer,
he-he-he that’s
“Little Rascal-Woofie” me.

Keep laughing, there is more proof and
more laughs coming your way!

Enjoy the magic of New Zealand’s
fascinating canine-chauffeurs.
