Shirley you know. . . .

Blogville Mayorz

have declared this week:  "Everything knows Shirley" so we can have an opportunity to introduce our friends to friends they haven't met yet!

I have so many new friends in Blogville since Mom adopted me as a rescue dog in 2014 so it's hard to pick from so many.

Well - I can't forget my fella Frankie Furter at

He's just pawsome, as are his paw-rents  and his cousin.

We have so much fun talking and laughing in Blogville and at home.

I think almost all of you know those friends, but here are some you may not have met and will be SO happy you did.

First -  there are cousins that each have a blog  (no don't start singing that "identical cousin" them song from the Patty Duke show that Mom remembers when she was little or EVERYONE will know how old she is).


They have the most colorful, entertaining blogs and even though each of them has lost a dear four legged member of their families very recently they still take the time to share and care for others.

And lastly - our newly discovered friend

Bertie lives clear across the big pond and is a math and science whiz who makes my Mom laugh SO hard.  We LOVES Bertie's science post collection. My Pee H. Dee Science Mom is weird, she has a collection of antique slide rules on the shelf with her bones (and don't get me started on why Mom won't let me play with her bone collection).

So stop in and say hi to old friends and make some new ones.  Thanks again to the Mayor Doodz for this great event.

  2. Isn't this a GRRRRREAT Idea.... we are seeing and sharing and meeting new furends... it is SOOOOOOO Blogville! We just LOVE Everybuddy here... and Want EVERYBUDDY to have TONS of Furends...
    We are really surprised that some of OUR furends didn't even KNOW some of our OTHER furends...
    What a fun time... introducing so many to others.

  3. Don't know the folks over at Higgins, looking forward to meeting them.

  4. I love having friends across the pond and I love the ones in my back yard. Blogville is a wonderful place.

  6. Wow! So many new blogs to woof in today:))
    'Shirley' is keeping me busy...and its fun too! Pawleased to meet you...by way of Chester and Joey at The Daily Bone!

    My unfurbros went to a math science highschool, and the main math teacher had a big collection of sliderules too:) Don't think he had any bones, though...he did have a cheese hat, cause he was from Wisconsin, BOL!! Growlmy has a slide rule from her highschool days...BOL! Yup she is that ancient...and she can't even remember how to use it, though pawppy says he knows how to use the one in his desk...He better, he's an engineer..but growlmy is an aide in a nursing home, maybe some of her residents know how to use one...no wait, they used to know how.....

    1. Thanks for stopping! I wish I had a cheese hat made out of real cheese. My Dad's a mechanical engineer - he can make about anything. We are so happy to meet you!
