Poop Scooping Thankful

Percy:  I remember this picture from July, but why we are posting this today?

Buddy:  Because when Jan walked outside to take this picture, the sky was dark as the storm moved in around us, but there in the midst of the storm clouds the sun was shining.

Cyndi:  Oh, right, and Jan said this would be a good reminder that there is hope even in the midst of a storm.

Percy:  I get it now  This is Thankful Thursday, a perfect time to post an uplifting storm picture.

Buddy:  We are also thankful for a sweet neighbor who gave us her two old modems when she switched to cable.  Our modem died a few months ago and the neighbor's oldest modem was dead Monday morning when Jan turned on the computer.  We hope her newer one will last us a long time!

Cyndi:  And we're thankful for our friend who has helped us with so many things over the years, including the bright pink shoes Jan has been wearing on our walks for a while.

Percy:  And we can't forget the kind, generous blogger who surprised us with a shipment of dog and cat food.

Buddy:  Or the friend who gives Jan a ride to Walmart and church when she can.

Cyndi:  Mr. Doug gives her an occasional ride to Walmart too, but.Jan gets awfully bored stuck at home all the time.  I can't imagine why.  She has us to keep her company.

Marcus:  How could Jan be bored?  We keep her busy.

Percy:  I don't think poop scooping rates high on the thankful scale, Marcus.

Marcus:  It should!  If there was no poop to scoop, there would be no Funny Farm.

Buddy:  For once you're making sense, Marcus.

Marcus:  If she doubles our food, we could poop more often.  That should give us Funny Farm security.

Cyndi:  You should have stopped while you were still making sense!

We're joining Pepi Smart Dog for today's Thankful Thursday blog hop. 


  1. Oh oh! We somehow do not think Miss Jan wants you to become a poop factory...BOL!!
    Thanks for the thankfur reminders and the giggles, too:)

  2. Marcus, You cracked me up !
    I didn't know those kind of your product make Jan happy... MOL

  3. Hari OM
    BOL - oh we can rely on Marcus to provide the punch line!!! I think you all are pretty good at finding the 'silver lining' and helping Jan to see it too. Always good to remember the bright spots. Hugs wags whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. Mum says she knows what Jan means about getting bored staying in the house all day. Now that it is getting cooler she often takesn me when she goes shopping. Walmart is only about a mile in one direction, and almost next door is a shopping center with a larger dollar store and supermarket. I luvs going to both places!!

  5. Those are wonderful things to be thankful for!

  24. Hmmm, poop scooping is not high on Dad's thankful list. Now collie kisses are a different story.
