Tongues and a Plea for Happy Thoughts

Here are our entries for Twinkie's Tongue Contest ...
It was kind of embarrassing cuz apparently we keep our tongues out all da time!!!
Dis is Nikki on her way to class. She is a very smart student... with a very long tongue.

Dis is Lucy. She has a licking addiction so her tongue is always in action. She's a rescue so we thinks her licking soothed her when she was tied to a gas meter when she was a baby.

Dis my furiends is me, Calhoun. I am 4.5 now but on my first birthday we had a huge party cuz it was a LONG year. Mommy says I was a wild puppy. Anyways, she made me dis yummy cake and well dis is me enjoying it. It was so good, I didn't even notice the silly hat! We still have bday parties but they are in the park.

Dis is McIver. He is very dignified but I like him anyways. He keeps his tongue to himself. Mommy and Daddy are so happy to get a sugar from him because he is SOOO stingy with dems.
Unfortunately, McIver gashed his side open last night in the yard. We aren't real sure what happened. He was so stoic about it that no one even knew it happened until several hours later. At first we thought it looked like a puncture wound or even a gunshot!!
After further examination, we discovered it was, in fact, a gash. Mommy and Daddy were able to administer some first aid last night and Daddy is taking him to the Vet this morning. As you all know, McIver is very selective about who he is makes friends with. So a trip to the Vet is quite stressful for him and Mommy and Daddy.
So PLEASE think good thoughts today about McIver and the Vet office. Oh yeah and Daddy cuz he's takin' him.


  1. Hey, my sissy is stingy withs her kisses too and when(only twice in a year)her does mum gets all weepy eyed. Yep, mum is a dork!
    Okays, we will be thinking good thoughts bout McIver and your poor poor dad...we wish him well. Who is your VET?
