'Make Up Your Own Holiday Day' Blog Hop

Today is 'Make Up Your Own Holiday Day'.

My holiday is:  'Impersonate a PI Day!

I'm a peach of a detective and my sidekick is a peep called Higgins.   He talks funny and  is very uptight.

Ranger:  Arrrrrrrroooo.  Check out dat priceless masterpiece!  
Higgins:  Ranger, you never cease to amaze me. I must know how you arrived at this remarkably astute conclusion with your limited knowledge of art.
Ranger:  Would you believe me if I told you it came to me in a dream?
Higgins:  Yes, because your conscious mind certainly isn't capable of such superior detective work.
Ranger:  Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

I'm livin da good life in Hawaii!   I got da beach, girls, and get to look cool cruising around da island (by air and on land).   Not bad.
My buddies Wally & Finn's chopper.

My wheels.   Cool huh?

Da Look

How can anyone resist dis face.   It's all in da eyes.
Mom does not let me come into her sewing studio.  Ya see…. she sometimes drops pins on the floor and doesn't want me to get one in one of my paws.

So she blocks off the stairs, at the bottom, wiff a cardboard thingy.

When I'm bored, I push da board aside and I sneak up da stairs.  I always stop at da top step and den I rest my head on the floor.  Dat way I can watch her and give her 'da look'.  You know da one.   Da one dat says…. I'm lonely down stairs all by myself.   Come down and play wiff me.

It works every time.   I am da master of 'da look'.

Here's what she was workin on ==>

She was makin a baby quilt for her niece.   Mom put da finished quilt on da couch to photograph it and I jumped up and posed on it.  I think it looks better wiff me on it.
Maybe I'll keep it.


Pees….. Happy 1st Day of Spring!

Today, I'm joining Mollie & Easy's 'SHOW UZ YOUR KNICKER’Z' blog hop.

Mom made me do dis.
Maybe it was cute when I was 1.
At 2….. it's just embarrassing.
I can't show you MY knickers… cuz I don't have any.   I like to go commando!   Hey…. I'm a Ranger and dat's what us Rangers do.

In lane #2 we have Ranger 'Danger'
Ranger is da Barkday Boy (2 yrs old) and itchin to burn up the pavement.
In lane #3 we have Greta

Des (2 yr old) Doddle brothers are very competitive and if dey work together, we may just have a photo finish.

In lane #7 we have Sweet William

He is not takin and chances of losin time to a flat tire.
In lane #8 we have our Downunder darlings Bella & Roxy
Bella is nearly 5 and Roxy is nearly 3.  Dis duo will be hard to beat. 
In lane #9 we have Shelby
Shelby is 4 yrs old and loves to cruise in the fresh air.
Don't be fooled by dat smile… Shelby is a scot and is a born competitor.
Lastly, we have Easy in lane #10
