Spring Bounty

Furst... did you hear that my name was picked by Mayzie and Ranger to win a Prize Pressie from their GABE contest?????? I am sooooooo thrilled. Thanks 87 million M & R. They will send a pawnation to DROH in our names. DROH really needs the help right now beclaws they are taking care of two dachshunds that were bitten by a COTTONMOUTH. That thingy is NOT to be confused with a cottonball, let me tell you. It will be very expensive to get them both well again. I am sooooo happy to be able to help, and I couldn't have done it without our grrrreat furends... Mayzie, Ranger, and of course, Twinkie!!!

Well now that it is FINALLY spring... my dad is catching fish AND... finding these yummy thingys. These are Morels, or what we call sponge mushrooms. Dad found these yesterday. After mom cleaned and cut them and washed them... it took her 2 hours to get them all fried. Then she and dad ate big sandwiches of deliciousness from the woods.

Pawsonally, I prefer mine RAW. I ate two, butt mom wouldn't let me have any more. BAH.
I hope dad goes out agin today, beclaws this time I will get to go with him. I couldn't yesterday beclaws I had to take mom to the big town to get her furs cut.

how scary that those wiener dog types got bit by a cottonmouth! my mama has told me about the bad snakes, so i know all about that one.
i'm super glad that your donation will help them get better.
okie dokie, now that is just the biggest pile of 'shrooms i have evarrr seen! you are a lucky ducky to have all of those growin' around your house!! i was wondering if they would give you an upset tummy if you ate too many. my mama has never given me or asa a 'shroom before, but we looove veggies so i bet we'd like them!

Wow! We didn't know you could eat things out of the woods! Our parents come home once a week with tons of stuff from a place called "Walmart". We haven't ever been there... but we like what comes home in the bags!

Wowee! Look at all those mushrooms! They don't look a thing like the ones mom brings back from that grocery store place. My mom said she read a book one time about peoples called "mushroom hunters" who go out and gather up mushrooms and sell 'em to restaurants and stuff. I bet your mom and dad coulda made 87 thousand green papers if they had sold 'em. Well, maybe next time.

I'm so very Most Glad that the donation came at just the right time. It makes me wiggle all over!

Wiggles and Wags,


Those sponge mushrooms are good eatin? They look like something mom rubs all over herself in the shower. Weird
Happy hunting... but do u really hunt mushrooms?

We are with Norwood - those shrooms look like what we see in our humans' bathroom too. Bet they taste good fried.

Congrats on your win - we have our paws crossed for those two pups who got bit. Hope they will be OK.

Your mom has big furs like you? That's where you get them from! Got it. Those mushrooms looked a lot like cheweys. But if you like them, I bet I would too. I love carrots too, if you want to try them.

Sam said...

Congratulations on your GABE wins! We were very happy to hear that you won.

Those morel thingies look kind of like cereal. They probably don't go so well with milk, though.

Hi, Frankie!
Congratulations on the GABE giveaway from Mayzie and Ranger!
Those mushrooms are considered "gourmet" here. Very expensive and not easy to find them!
Kisses and hugs

Smiley giggles!

Morels, the poor man's caviar. I clearly remember my dad and his buddies headed into the wood to search for them and my mother cooking them up as though they were royalty. Thanks for bringing back a wonderful memory for me.
