Flaky Peeps ETC

Hey boys and girls!  We have had a BLAST reading all the FLAKY PEEP POSTS this week.  We're kinda sorry it's over!  Hmmm, maybe SOMEONE wants to make it a regular features!  Sarge? Frankie? anyone, anyone (apologies to Ferris Bueller).  Stay tuned as the winners are revealed next week!

Even though our Mom is a total FLAKE, we couldn't seem to come up with anything AMUSING to share that she would actually LET us share.  But she did something this VERY MORNING that just illustrates what an incredible FLAKE she is so we're gonna share it NOW.  Even if it means NO TREATS for a WHOLE DAY! haha

So, here's what went down first thing this morning.  Mom has decided to trade coffee for hot chocolate during the cold winter months.  Yeah, we know, it's more fattening but doesn't make her as jittery, which is good for ALL of us! BOL!  Anyway, she uses the kind in the little packets that you just add to HOT WATER.  Sometimes she boils the water on the stove.  Sometimes she just pops the cup of water in the microwave.  It's really better if she microwaves it 'cause she tends to forget about the boiling water on the stove if she walks away and doesn't set a timer.  ANYWAY, she put the cup in the microwave for like a minute and a half.  *DING* She opens the microwave and gets out the cup and guess WHAT!  There's NO WATER in it!  Really!  She FORGOT to put WATER in the cup! bwahahahahahaha  Now THAT'S FLAKY!

While you're shaking your head over that FLAKINESS, we've got a miscellaneous piece of info to share.  We just read this post on FB this morning and thought it might help somepup somewhere sometime who suffers from seizures.  We need to say first, though, that we KNOW there are probably as many reasons/causes for seizures as there are dogs that have them.  Everypup is very different and sometimes it's hard to pin down a cause and it depends on tons of different things.  Having said that, we still think this post is worth reading in case it helps someone along the way.  It's on our Pit Bull Frogs FB page BUT we're pretty sure you don't have to have a FB account or sign up in any way to look at this link -  If you can't access the link, but are interested in reading the post, let us know and we'll send it to you in an email.  Basically, it was determined that the cause of a little rescue pup's seizures were the Kibbles 'n Bits he was being fed at his new furever home.  His food was changed and he's all better now.

The flaky peeps posts are totally cracking us up!  We can't get enough of 'em!  Even though we're not entering the contest since we're co-hosting with SARGE and FRANKIE, we're gonna share a couple of flaky peep moments with you.  Now these aren't nearly as funny as any of yours, but we're pretty sure we'd have to go without dinner and treats for a couple of days if we told the really good stuff.  But we still think this is some slightly flaky behavior --

When Mom has trouble sleeping, she puts one of her favorite movies in the DVD player and snuggles on the sofa.  Usually in about 10 minutes, she's asleep and dreaming about chasing rabbits and . . . oh, wait, that's what WE dream about.  What the heck do peeps dream about??? Oh, well, nevermind.  Anyway, she sleeps through the WHOLE rest of the movie and then WAKES up when it's over.  So NOW, she's awake again and has to restart the movie to fall asleep AGAIN.  This goes on pretty much all night until the wee hours of the morning.  Then about 3:00 or 4:00, she gets in the bed and sleeps some more.  We just can't understand this routine and we gotta say it kinda interrupts our OWN sleep.  NOT to mention that the sofa is supposed to be all OURS when the peeps go to bed, right? But does she care about that?!  Noooooo . . .  So, we're just wondering ~ Does anybody else's peeps have weird sleeping habits or is it just ours???
Mom, asleep on the sofa . . . bwahahahahahahahaha - she WISHES!

A couple of notes:  We're having some super slow-as-molasses innernuts AND some issues with STICKY KEYS.  Sometimes we start typing a comment on your blogs and all of a sudden it looks like this ~

ha's oo unny!  Be you on' ha aain.

So, if we happen to type "Your pees are so funny!" - we really mean "Your PEEPS are so funny!"  It's happened a few times and we think we caught it every time, but in case we didn't, please accept our humble apologies.

Also, we're really concerned about our furiend Pip!  Please send him the Power of the Paw so he gets better.  Love you PIP!

Seeing as how this is FLAKY PEEP WEEK here in Blogville, we thought we would share a tidbit we read in The BARK.  Just to be perfectly CLEAR, our peeps DO NOT engage in this FLAKY behavior!  And to be quite honest, we were a tad chagrined to learn that SOME peeps do.  We know NONE of YOUR peeps do this either, so we hope you won't be too disappointed and disillusioned to learn of this FLAKY, and let's just say, slightly DECEPTIVE behavior. 

So, are you ready for this ~

"And then of course you get these people on Facebook who not only talk about their pets but as their pets. This sort of thing gives me the chills." quoted from "Drawn to Dogs" by Jeffrey Essmann

We're going to go out on a limb and assume this guy means "blogs" as well as "Facebook."  But, regardless of the forum, can you BELIEVE there are SOME peeps who engage in this FLAKY behavior???!!!  Doesn't that just take the cake??? Mmmmm, cake.  Mmmm, cake with BACON . . .


Hmm? What? Where were we?  Oh, yeah, FLAKY behavior. . .

We know your peeps don't engage in the above-referenced behavior, BUT maybe that do something ELSE that's kinda FLAKY.  Here's your chance to tell the world.

Post on your own blog from January 1 to midnight Eastern time January 7. Post once or multiple times if your peeps give you that much material! Tell us all about how your peep is a flake.

Comment here on our blog, Frankie's blog, Sarge's blog and the Blogville Community Calendar so that we know you've done your post. Why all four you ask?  A couple of very good reasons: 

(1) so we don't miss anyone! 
(2) there are three cool prizes to be awarded on January 11, 2012.

Keep 'em coming!
