Happy Groundhog Day!

I see my shadow Mom.  That means six 
more weeks of NO baths!!


  1. is super sunny but cold here, we are tired of winter, mom wants her porch back. stella rose

  2. We think Abby is on to something really good!!! And we are hoping that seeing his shadow means Punxsutawney Phil is sending us some snow.

  3. Our hog Wiarton Willie says early spring. We wonder why we aren't having a groundhog bbq.

  4. OMD OMD ABBY.... Ask your MOM to PLEASE not give you a Baff... that would mean that MY mom would feel compelled to give ME one... since we have a DATE Coming...
    I want you to Smell GOOD fur our Date... not Stink like ShamePoops and stuffs...
    It is WINTER and the Rotten Rodent says it will CONTINUE to be WINTER fur 6 more Weeks... PLUS It has dumped 18 inches of Snow on ME over the last 7 days.. with Two MORE due by Morning... THIS is NOT the Time to be Tortured with a BAFF.

    1. Mom said that at 14 degrees out it is too cold to give me a baff yet. That means I can roll around in the yard a few more weeks!

  5. PEE S.... we see that your mom actually USED that Supper O'Clock wrist Reminder thingy... and gotted home... at a respectable time tonight. WAY to Go...Abby.

  6. BOL BOL BOL.......Loved those comics. Mom is rolling on the floor! :)

  7. It's a mystery why we listen to a rodent....but he is just as accurate as the meteorologists on TV!

  8. Six more weeks of no baths...that's not the case of a small dog who can easily be bathed indoors in the bath tub!

  9. No baffs in da winter? How come my momma didn't get da memo?

  10. Hey, your fence looks a lot like our fence! And we saw our shadows, too!

  11. Six weeks of no baths.....that sounds like a great idea.

  12. we sadly have no groundhogs here, so the badgers have to do the shadow-job... we unfortunately saw not only one :o)

  13. BOL I like the way you think!! No baffs fur efuryone :)
