Thankful Thursday

Sei-Chan (aka "Thei-Chan")
: Greetings one and all. Everyone else has had far too much blog time of late so I have had to resort to the old trick again. Honestly! I shall of course start with a photo of me. #1 says that I am totally unique, the only "Abyssinian Ridegback" she has ever met, and she is hugely thankful for ME!

We were all very grateful for a wonderful package we received in the mail yesterday. It was from our friend Marlene of "9 and Chani" fame. She is a potter and made an absolutely beautiful ceramic pendant commemorating our brother Yuu-Chan:

He is wearing a formal Japanese "Hakama" jacket and the rainbow on it shows he is no longer with us. Thank you Marlene, for your kindness and thoughtfulness.

Tommy was very thankful to go out to dinner with #1 last night, to the home of his good friend Sissi, the gorgeous Briard:

As for that pest, Bibi, when he is not plotting his next escape, he is still very thankful for his big mousie with the furry tail!

And in the midst of all the fog we have been getting, Tama was most thankful for the one day when there was a lovely sunbeam for her to lie in!


  1. Lots of lovely things to be thankful for. Have a wonderful day.

  2. Oh wow, so much to be thankful for. The Yuu-Chan pendant is very special indeed!

  3. Those are good thankfuls. And we are thankful to see you looking so beautiful!

  4. Abyssinian Ridgeback - hahahahaha! You all have wonderful reasons to be grateful, which make us happy for you too.
    Siena wants Tommy to know if his ice pompons are so difficult to get rid off too. They only melt after ages!

  5. What great reasons to be happy and such a lovely pendant commemorating Yuu-Chan from Marlene.
    Bibi we love your mousie with the very furry tail and mousie seems to like you grabbing it and giving it a good bunny kicking!!
    Sei-Chan we like how you are getting everyone orgnised for today's post.
    Tama-Chan - how wise to get in the sun beam today - he may not come out again tomorrow!!

  6. What a sweet pendant! That was so nice of Marlene to make that.

    Looks like things are good at your house - tell Bibi to stop plotting escapes!

  7. So many things to be thankful for....and I am thankful that you are my friends....Happy New Year....

  8. You always look so intelligent in your photos!

  9. What a lovely and thoughtful gift! Looks like you all had a wonderful holiday. We got your card today, we'll be keeping that stamp for sure!!!

  10. What great pikhs!

    I'm glad Tommy got to see his beaWOOtiful Briard furiend!

    PeeEssWoo: That Bibi is something else!

  11. My friend, those are excellent photos of you, you could be a model with that face!!

    A lovely pendant gift.

  12. That ceramic pendant is very beautiful. We bet it is very special to #1. You all would have loved it here today, it was very sunny AND almost 70 degrees - incredible for December in Kansas, but we poor sibes really are hoping for some snow.

  13. All good things to be thankful for. Mum found a link that your mum might find interesting. Dick Sparrow who did the 40 horse hitch passed away recently in Iowa. Mum saw him do this with the 40 horses. Amazing.

  14. Not many sunbeams around here, lately!

  15. Very good reasons to be thankful for!
    I am always looking for sunbeams here in my house!
    Kisses and hugs

  16. You are looking gorgeous as always, Sei!
