TOBY here...

Hello there every-furry-buddy...

We don't have much news at this end of the world, so this is going to be a really short post.  "Maxmom" says that I should write something anyway so that my buddies don't worry about me or get the wrong idea. Here's a picture of "The King" (for old times sake).  He is still strutting around the household pretending that he is in charge, BOL!

"Maxmom" tells me that many of you are all 'snowed-in' and that it is really chilly where you live.
She says that maybe we'll get to see some of your 'snow-dog' creations soon'...???
We love seeing pictures of all your snow because we don't get that kind of weather here.  At the moment all our plants are very happy indeed because our weather is fantastic!

  "Maxmom" is walking about in her summer clothes to keep cool and I have regular swims in our swimming pool. Well, we hope that your big freeze in the northern hemisphere is tolerable and that you are all able to keep warm and happy.

Anyway, we had an angry thunderstorm yesterday afternoon, so my walk was cancelled at short notice.  Instead "Maxmom" decided to take the easy way out and give me a game of 'fetch'...
Luckily I have a 'fabric' soccer ball for inside games.

(Please excuse the quality of the pictures - they are 'snapshots' taken off a video. But I thought I'd show them anyway, so you can get an idea of the fun I had...)

My alert readers will notice that the game wasn't ONLY about 'fetch', but also about
Did you see? Did you notice?
Who of you noticed?
Don't you think I did a splendid job of ousting the "King"?

If you didn't notice, don't feel too bad because 'Maxmom' didn't notice either

Wishing all my buddies a wonderful weekend.
Keep warm every-furry-buddy!

We are coming to stay with you while it's so cold here!! I believe the appropriate mode of transportation is a laundry basket?

Hi Toby
It's a bit chilly here too but we don't get snow. We notice the King on his throne while mom plays fetch with you, BOL. Have fun Toby maybe you will go swimming today

You are so adorable. I just want to come over to your sunshine and give you a hug! We will be sure to post pictures of our snow so you can feel it from afar (in my opinion that's the best way!)

You are so lucky to have warm weather Toby! Neeli would love to play fetch with you too.

Enjoy your heat while we try to stay warm.

Hey Toby,
When you're as cute as you are, you can get away with being sneaky!
Hugs and belly rubs to all,

Hi Toby! Looks like you had a great time playing fetch! We love the picture of that purrty flower. We put a few snow pictures up earlier this week, come on by and see them!

Hi Toby,
Yes we're snowed in here, so thanks for showing us your lovely flowers, although Gail says tell MaxMom not to rub it in, what with the summer clothes and the swimming pools and stuff!
That game of soccer looks like fun. But what did you do with "The King'??
Toodle pip!

Hello there Toby,

It's funny how well you did your sneaky moves to oust King Toffee. We instantly noticed that he was no where to be found when you were on Maxdog's lap. BOL

Enjoy your weekend too! Our weather is very much like yours. We get sunshine and rains too but somehow the rain never turn into snowflakes. Hope the sun shines tomorrow so you can enjoy the walks and maybe swim too?

Toby you are getting so big!!

Angel Ginger Jasper said...

Toby how you have grown. I loved seeing you game pictures and laughed that you usted King Toffee.. Hugs GJ x

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

You are NOT sneaky: you are clever. As befits an honorary Great Dane. Really enjoyed the post about the famous Just Nuisance. We had not heard of him before and we love to learn new things, especially about Great Danes.

Tat looks like major strategic thinking to us, Toby!

Ma is still muttering, "Toby, he is too too cute!"

High Fives for ousting the Toffee King, You rebel!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Jacqueline said...

Adorable photos; Toby is growing so fast and is obviously a happy sweetheart...Sorry I haven't been visiting as often, but I am now working very long hours at a new job and kept my old job part time as well=my house was a big purchase for a single girl; I am scheduling posts ahead on my blog, but am catching up with comments on the weekends...Happy weekend, sweet friend; your babies are beautiful as always.

I'm not snowed in but we do have a ton of snow. I'm ready for it to melt away already and for the spring weather to make an appearance. Sadly, that isn't going to happen any time soon.

You best be careful, Toby! Toffee is KING and you just never know what kind of punishment he may decide to dish out. bol

Casper Bear said...

Toby you are sneaky bol! You sure did a splendid job of ousting the King! Maxmom sure didn't notice, you were very clever!I have to do that with Meg "The Princess" sometimes but she usually bites me later. You sure are growing buddy!

Oh Toby good job with the ball!!!! We love you! Hugs Joey and Kealani

Dexter said...

I would watch my back if I were you. Don't mess with Toffee. He has been around a lot longer than you and has a few tricks of his own no doubt. Payback, well, you know.


Beth said...

Toby, You are just adorable and you are growing and getting so big! Merry Christmas to you and your family.
