Sun Puddles & Amber Actually Smiled on The Pet Parade Blog Hop #213 with Rascal & Rocco Co-Hosted by Basil & Barking from the Bayou

Friday greetings wunderpurr furriends

Welcome to another Friday on the Pet Parade and our weekly round-up, well mew may have guessed that there was no Pet Peeves with Parsley yesterday, fur the life of us we don't know how that happened - OOPS - Sorry, we'll have to reschedule that fur next week now.

In other news, the weather warmed up a little, so we managed to get a few intermittent sun-puddles, which was just luffley.

We're also looking into building a catio fur Fudge as he is just a total liability in the real wurld, so we'll keep mew apprised of that and obviously share the entire experience. 

We've finally finished updating all the blog pages now, so effurything is up-to-date and The Pawesome Blog Directory is now where all your links are.  As we had three lists of pawesome blogs to follow, it's so much better that they've all finally been assimilated on the one page - much neater! MOL

And if your blog isn't listed, let us know and we'll add mew asap. 

Oh, purrlease note the date because this is a biggy.... and it may neffur happen again...

Amber actually SMILED!!!!!

See, it's a miracle and doesn't she look purretty fur a crotchety old-timer!!! MOL  We think it's because her book reviews start back on the 4th of October, and she's been missing it terribly the last couple of weeks, mew know how the boredom sets in and mew're just counting down fur something and it seems to take fureffur... that's how Amber feels right now.

Fur those that don't Amber furry well, this is a highly condensed version of her normal facial expression repertoire...

1. The Judgmental Look

2.  The Severely Disapproving Look

3. The OH HELL NO On Any Level Look

4. The Instant Dismissal Look [leave furry furry quickly]

These pics were taken in sequence, and to be honest we are actually quite surprised that the P.A. made it out alive! 

Amber doesn't suffer fools, idiots, half-wits, pillocks, prats, dullards, pudding heads or the like, her tolerance level fur those types is beyond infinitesimal.  Sorry Fudge, mew'll have to obtain some extra smarts from somewhere dude! MOL
