White Dog, hoping to hurry Spring to us, took her new bee stuffie out to the deck to encourage the real insects to get on their job of pollinating the plants in the backyard. She was impatient when I explained that it was still much too cold for the buzzers to be out and about and she grabbed bee and took it on tour all around the yard, stopping to vigorously shake it every few feet in emphasis of her desires.

White Dog tried to rally Michael to her cause when he got home from school. She brought bee inside and laid it at his feet. He did not understand White Dog's command for him to make the bees come, instead he shared with her that the Science Director at school wants to move him into a more advanced Biology Class! White Dog was so proud (as were we all)! It will be a little more challenging but Michael's teacher believes he has the ability and the knowledge base to do well. White Dog gave a yip of congrats as she quickly realized that if he did well in Biology, he would learn more about bees and just maybe he could help in her efforts to make the flowers bloom quicker.

Hi Siku - We all appreciate your efforts to hurry Spring ~~ can't wait for sunshine, flowers, picnics at the Dog Park and warmer weather.

Also, it sounds like Michael is adjusting well in his new school.
Way to go, Michael ~~ We're barking for you !!

Hugs and yips,
Cappy (and Oliver too)

Congrats to Michael - he must have some very good and wise teachers there to recognize and encourage his talents.

Mom says she would love to see the bees too.

I hope that Spring comes slowly. I do not like the season that comes after Spring. How exciting for Michael!

Oooooh Siuku - I don't like bees. One time, I wanted to see what one tasted like so I bit it. But then it bit me back, and it hurt - a l o t!!! Then brother did the same thing (silly boy) and his mouth swelled up. I say let the bees come out at night when I am snuggled up sleeping and dreaming of being with you!

Yay for Michael's good news. Stability and love do amazing things.

It is with a heavy heart and many sad woos that I read your Comment on my blog. I am so so sorry, Siku and Family, for your friends' horrible tragedy. I can't even begin to think of the fear poor Jazzy suffered to prevent her from escaping. Our prayers go out to you and your friends tonight, and to Jazzy's sweet Soul as she crosses the Rainbow Bridge.

Peace to you and your friends during this difficult time. Let us know if there is anything we can do.

You are loved!

Suka and K

Isis LOVES her bees. She carries them everywhere! they lost some of their shape due to lots of spit and love. They became one of her favorite toys quickly- maybe because of the cute little smiles they have!

Remington said...

Sounds like everything is going very well! Keep thinking spring!
