Springtime Noodles

No. This isn't a FOOD BLOG although we frequently talk about FOOD. I am referring to me, Noodles the Pug, in the title. Kinda catchy, huh?







I was out in the backyard helping the garden GROW, as I always do. It was a warm weekend and I love love LOVE being out in our yard when it is SPRING and WARM. These flowers are white geraniums and they are so delightful and spicy smelling. BUT I NEVER eat them. I don't think they would taste so good.

I prefer the sweet sweet strawberries now ripening in the planters. Soon there will also be apricots and tomatoes and beans all growing all over the yard. My Auntie T is a super gardener. The in late summer and on into Fall there are the apples.

I love my yard.

Throwback Thursday - Noodles's Style



Some peeps like to participate in Throwback Thursday with pictures of when they were little pups or kitties. I do not play that way. I like to recall other times. . . usually those associated with food.

Like the time I went to Starbucks with Mommy and Auntie B.
It was spur of the moment.
It was a lovely afternoon.
It was YUMMY.

Need I say more?

A Remembered Angel

Yes, yes. I have used this picture a couple of times this week.
But if you read the post, you will see why I reposted it
TODAY

I had this special FURiend here in Blogville named Payton. I never met her in the fur, but we were like sisters in many ways. Payton was so spirited and fun and I loved reading about her adventures on her blog Pugnacious P. There was one special thing about Payton, though. . . she was a PDE Survivor. If you don't know what PDE is and you are a PUG - then rush right over to her blog (her awesome 'rents keep the sight up and active for peeps looking for PDE info and help) and find out: Pugnacious P

Payton was a fighter but the effects of PDE took its toll on her body. In 2012 at age 9 years, Payton crossed the Rainbow Bridge and became an angel forever.I think of her almost every day when I scroll through Blogville posts or hear about another pug diagnosed with PDE. I learned so much from her. And I even have had the special honor of meeting her 'rents who are as wonderful as I always imagined they would be.

March 21 was Payton's birthday. . . and one way we honor Payton is with pictures of pink flowers - because Payton loved pink flowers.

My Auntie B happened to take some spectacular pictures of pink flowers over this weekend and they reminded me of Payton so much that I wanted to blog about them. So here they are -

PAYTON'S PINK FLOWERS





I love you Angel Payton and I know you are watching over us all

The Strawberry Thief

Luscious Strawberry



My Auntie T is the family gardener. You can find her outside puttering around the yard every weekend when the weather is reasonable. That means MOST of the time you can find her in the backyard planting this, pulling that, changing something.

One of her pride and joys are her strawberry plants. They are pretty good producers and are planted in barrels - which keep them away from snails and other strawberry loving critters. Well, that is, away from MOST critters. You see, recently the strawberries have been disappearing. Not a lot at once. Just a couple here and there.



Looking a little skimpy FRUITwise




Auntie T set up perimeter security and until this weekend had no luck at all catching the perpetrator.So she added a camera closer to the action. . . one that was hidden IN the plant. She was sure she would catch the thief. . . AND SHE DID!



The Perp


I was jumping for joy at this news. I mean, I love our strawberries and I don't want anything to happen to them before they are ready to share. But I noticed that suddenly Auntie T was following me when I went outside to do my bidness. And at night no one turned on the light outside so I could find my way around. It was all very suspicious behavior and ALL TOWARD ME!

The accused
Pugsonally, I could not tell who or what the thief is based on THAT photo!
