Hunka Hunka Hank

It's Tuesday's Tale time.  Today meet hunka, hunka, Hank.

He's a handsome dude.  At five years of age he's house trained and gentle.  The only thing missing is a loving forever home to fulfill his retriever instincts.  You don't have to be a hunter, just play ball and Frisbee with him.  

You can meet Hank at Twin County Humane Society

The Mischief Monday from Hell

Hi Y'all!

The Humans are off to lots of appointments today.  They have a busy time the next two weeks.

By the way, it's 7:30pm Sunday evening and still 90 degrees.   Just sayin'.  

Anyway, seems my Human is thinkin' of tryin' to migrate my blog to Wordpress.  Not sure how difficult a task this will be for a non-techy person with very little time to spare.  I can't post from any editor.  If my Human tries the work around, the photos don't go.  Since usually I post lots of photos, this is a problem.  When my Human tries to put my pics into the Blogger on line, it strips all the watermarking and framing off. 

There are hundreds of people complaining to Blogger of this problem.  They made a protocol change to sign in and Microsoft didn't change the protocol in Live Writer.   

This afternoon my Human couldn't find the Forum she was following about the problem.  It's like it vanished.   

For 9 years we've been using Live Writer and Blogger.  Now we're lost.  We're in a boat without an oar.

Oh, and I promised to tell you about my personal mischief last week that resulted in me sitting on my butt instead of romping down pier.  

It seems when my Human turned away to walk back up the pier I leaped into the water with the ducks, leaping toward them!  Of course they stood on their tails and flapped their wings at me.  Hearing the commotion my Human called me to her and ever since I have lost pier privileges.   

 Y'all hurry on back!

Work Around

Hi Y’all!

Time to see if this work around works and I can join up with Slim Doggy, Emma from MyGBGV Life and To Dog With Love in Fit Dog Friday blog hop!

It’s also time for the Pet Parade Blog Hop hosted by Rascal and Rocco and co-hosted by Jan's Funny Farm, Basil the Bionic Cat, Barking from the Bayou, and Love is being Owned by a Husky!

We got a nice break from the 90 degree heat wave over the Memorial Day Weekend.  Temps held in the upper 80’s.  However, yesterday the 90’s were back and they continue today. 

Those of you who use blogger and live writer know that blogger has a 2 step verification.  It’s always worked fine.  We just get a new code when the Human made a routine change to passwords…well…this time it tells me “blog not found”. 

I did a very naughty thing.  I’ll tell y’all about on Mischief Monday.  In the meantime, I’m banished from the pier.

As for exercise, most of the time I carry a ball or bumper around. 

If I lay it down, my Human sends me to find it.  In the evening it’s too hot to even run to find it.  Often I don’t carry anything in the evening.

Stay cool and y’all come on back!

Howdy folks, my name is Buddy.



I’m looking for a new family to take me for walks and play ball.  Then in the evening, let me cozy up for a nap on your bed.  That would wind up my perfect dream day!




I’m loving and affectionate.  You’ll still think I’m a youngster.  Also, I get along with all sizes and breeds of dogs. 




Am I the one you’re looking for?  I hope so!

Here’s Thoughtfully Barkin’ at You (Squirrel Warning)



Hi Y’all!





Today I’m joining Thursday’s Barks and Bytes Blog Hop hosted by 2 Brown Dawgs and Heart Like a Dog.




I’m also linkin’ up with Ruckus the Eskie and Love is Being Owned by a Husky in Thoughtless Thursday. 




Parade of Fitness brought this remark from:


Frankie Furter and Ernie  

“We had some of those SUDDENLY SUMMER ... Hot days too..... No fun to play when it is THAT hot. RIGHT?”



Right!  Above I’m askin’ myself “do I really want to pick this up?”.




Sepia Saturday’s Summer in the South…




Janet Keefe asked… 

“I love when you have some of the same birds down there as we have up here! That looks like the larger Hairy woodpecker, do you have the smaller Downy ones too?
Jan, Wag 'n Woof Pets”



The bill didn’t quite look right for the Hairy.  I’m not sure which he is.  Downy Woodpeckers are everywhere in the U.S. Hairy Woodpeckers are in much of the U.S. with a couple of exceptions which includes part of Texas.


Since we’re in the southeast, both are common here.

We also have red headed woodpeckers, red bellied, pileated and flickers as well as sapsuckers.




Monday Mischief titled Mischief Thursday prompted this question…





There was lots of curiosity about the diet the cardinal Love Birds were eating.




NC Sue asked… 

“What are you feeding these guys? They look like they're having a feast! I've never seen a feeder like this. Did you make it yourself or find it for sale? I find it intriguing.
Thanks for linking up at These are great shots!”




Oz theTerrier had the same query…

“Oh Hawk, we just LOVE cardinals!!! We are curious...what are you feeding them? We have a wonderful little pair in the backyard and would love to put something out for them.




I’m feeding them orange halves and melon seeds from my Humans’ breakfast.




MyDog Likes  wonders…

“What a cool feeder! Do the squirrels stay out of it!?”



Whether or not the squirrels have access depends on the pole you use to hang your feeder and where you locate it. I suggest using a raccoon baffle, not a squirrel baffle. Also, keeping it away from overhanging branches or shrubs helps. 




We don’t put the feeder in the open because of the raptors that feast on squirrels and rabbits.  Until the last couple of years, we’ve had no squirrels or rabbits.



My Human ordered the feeder from a catalog before my time. It was to feed the orioles. You put fruit on the one side and, if you’re trying to attract orioles, mulberries or blueberry jelly works great.






Y’all come on back now!
