The Pet Parade Blog Hop No: 174 ~ Rascal & Rocco Co-Hosted by Basil & Love is Being Owned By A Husky & Barking from the Bayou

Supurr Salutations pawesome pals

Welcome to another fabulous Pet Parade

And we're only a week away from Catmass, how exciting... SOOOOO EXCITING!

Did any of mew write to Santa Claws and ask fur anything inpurrticular?

I caught Parsley and Smooch the other day writing this....

I have no wurds!

*    *    *

Obviously as I'm still convalescing I didn't take part in this years Annual Snowball Fight, but The Hoard insisted that I accompanied them into the bunker where they'd made their furry own winter wunderland on Level 9 with fake snow and effurything just to have my picture taken.

I then hurried up to Level 8 and got in the supurr warmz of the biosphere, as Horice keeps a balmy year round temperature of 25C or 77F.

It wasn't long before The Hoard joined me, cold, wet and covered in snow.  Horice being the gracious host that he is soon got the BBQ happening and coconut niptini's served all round, so I think mew could say it ended up as a pawty.  I must add that I had a plain grilled chicken breast and water while effurypurrdy else went wild... ah well there's always next year!!! 

If mew missed anything this week, here's the latest links fur your purrusal!

We'll be back with our usual Selfie Selection on Sunday, so hope mew can join us then.

In the meantime we wish mew all a truly amazing weekend

Happy Hopping
