Few Things For Thursday

Note: If this post appears anywhere other than Murphy and Stanley's official page ( then please know it was STOLEN! This is especially true for the site at "". No permission has been granted to copy content from this blog in whole or part.

As you can see, our posts are still being exported to the evil site.  We suggest everyone change their settings for your feeds (located under Settings, then Other) to "short" so if it happens to you the thieves can only get a little bit of the post as opposed to the whole thing.  Don't change it to "NONE" cuz then your posts won't show up on your Follower's readers.  OK, look at this picture:

Mom did the presentation for the Dog Park on Tuesday evening and the council, after saying her presentation was really good, tabled it without a vote cuz they want off-street parking.  And since there is NO place to put in off street parking this is a problem.  So this story continues.

Have you been over to Dory's place?  Jakey gave an excellent lesson on how to make a Valentine for your mom using PicMonkey.  They will save all their instructional posts to a Photo Class page.  Keep an eye out for classes so you can learn how easy it is to do digital editing of photos!  OK, now look at this picture, it was done with photo editing:
Ruby sure looks hot doesn't she?  It really isn't hard to do, you just have to want to learn it and not be scared to try!

The other thingie we wanted to tell you is that tomorrow is Fractured Fryday Hairy Tails!  (See tab for details.) We'll actually put our post up later this evening to help out folks on the east side of Blogville, (across the great pond). They get Friday before we get Friday!

And lastly, don't forget we're working on 2 events, Heart 2 Heart Dance and Mayorz Marathon.  You can see who is already signed up and in training under the tab for the event on our bloggy.  Send photos to cecampbell[AT]msn[DOT]com.  And we still need blogs to volunteer to host some Mile Markers.  It will require some easy photo editing but we can help you learn if you don't already know.  OK, here's another picture for you (mom showed it at the council meeting, it said "poop: BOL!

OK, that's all from us today.  Remember, no matter what they throw at you just keep fetching the ball and it will all work out!

  1. it is sad - that is often the way the government works - obstacle after obstacle

  2. Oh big giant bummer about the dog park. I know your Mom was disappointed but I am also guessing that she will keep at it until it all works out!

  3. We agree with Duncan. Never smooth sailing with these councils over here too but you got to keep at it and win them round. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  9. Hi Y'all!

    Sorry, we don't have a FFHT post. No one in our family, including me, makes New Years resolutions. I've always left that to the Humans and the Humans say why resolve something that invariably will be broken?

    Y'all come on by,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  10. Dealing w/ town council's is such a pain in the wiggly butt, isn't it?? I hope you find a way to get a dog park approved somehow. I'll have to look into the photo class because I don't know how to do any fancy paw work on my pics at all! Looking forward to the Heart to Heart dance - Rudy got Phoebe a date with the handsome & dapper Oz The Terrier!
    Love & Biscuits,
    Cathy, Isis & Phoebe

  11. Why do people get their kicks off of stealing people's ideas, pictures and posts!! It happens to us

    Noreen & Hunter

  14. You do have a bit more time to find a place with off street parking....the Groundhog hasn't given his verdict yet. Good luck to your mum, she's putting in double time.

  16. The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry when off street parking is involved.
    Thanks for being a friend

  17. Sorry about the dog park business! We have changed our feed to short, thanks for the tip!

  18. I wish that darn site would go away! We changed our feed too so they aren't getting much but it's still annoying. :-)

  19. That's right...just keep fetching that ball....and oh yeah, and give your Mama some extra snuggles too!!
    Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo

    PeeEss form JAkey, thanks for the shout out Doodz!

  20. hang in there with the dog park, hope everything will work out. Hazel & Oreo will be sending their dance picture in tonight or tomorrow. Mom is working on our marathon pic too. She is so busy with her trainee at work and Mabel at home she is trying to keep up as best she can.
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

  21. The link for Fractured Fryday didn't open up -( Please tell us more!

    Sorry about the park - it's not because of any lack of efforts, just squirrel government.

  22. We found the tab!! Disregard previous comment.

    Abby and her Mom

  23. We wish something would be done about that thieving site! We are going to try to participate tomorrow but never. Love that last photo. :)

  24. Holy-gwak-a-moley...we gotta get Dad off his butt and write something for FFHT....."DAD, wake up we gots something important to do" the old guy could sleep forever, gezzzzz!

    The Mad Scots

  25. Howdy Mates. We can't believe there are peeps out there who want to steal your stuff. It's just not on and we wish they'd nick off and find their own ideas. Sorry too about the council stuffs. We have NO dog parks near us, sigh, butt we are lucky we live in a rural area where we can go for lovely walks along dirt roads. Mum will have to check out the photo shop stuffs cause we always love seeing photos done like that. Your last one is a crack up hehehe. Take care mates and have a lovely weekend. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  26. Too bad your park got tabled - I mean who wants a table anyways? I'd prefur a couch.

  27. Crikey ... OFF STREET PARKING????????????????? Tell 'em ... 'it's for dogs" ... dogs like to walk to the park ..... we don't need to drive and PARK for goodness sake!!!
    Got FFHT under control. Still workin' on the photos for the dance. Crikey ..... must get onto that, aye??

  28. Off street parking? Are they expecting hordes? Darn. You must be disappointed.

    We plan to register for the marathon. We just have to get it together to send you a pict!

  29. The thieving site is still up and strong, and Go Daddy - the folks that had the awful pet commercial for super bowl (sure - let's just toss our pet out of the truck and sell it online after it finds its way home) haven't pulled it. I'm all for a very vocal Paw-cott of Go Daddy in Blogville and spread the news in the BlogPaws Community.

  31. I wouldn't pose for Mom for a marathon shot, and the only pictures available would have just made me a speed bump for the marathoners. (I'll get better with the camera, I promise).

    We will still so love to see all of the activities!

  32. Thank you for all the reminders. I am heading over to Dory's as I forgot about the class. Mommy needs it bad!! She sucks at making fun pictures. I am working on menus for both of your upcoming events. I have many healthy snacks in mind for the run.


  33. Always something with councils and government bodies no matter where you live! and I am sorry things are still being swiped...people can be pretty ordinary sometimes..:( hugs Fozziemum xx

  34. We are so sorry that your dog park has been parks are very very important things for us to have, we need one here also....I am sure we are like 1200 on the bottom of the list....we laughed hard at that last picture.....stella rose
