PLOG

Here is my PLOG (picture blog) … from the picture I snapped at SAINTS this weekend. But first I just want to let people know that the Shelter Challenge is happening again, and I know  a lot of you, including Carol are voting/contested out. On the other hand,  some of you may be like me and feigning for a chance to click the mouse each morning with the morning coffee to start our day. So I thought I would just let you know that if you want to (no pressure) you could vote each day for S.A.I.N.T.S. in the current Shelter Challenge. We usually get top 2 in Canada which gives SAINTS $1000 from Pet Finders. Here is the link: http://www.theanimalrescuesite.com/clickToGive/shelterchallenge.faces?siteId=3. Search: S.A.I.N.T.S. Canada BC Mission and click vote.

Ok back to nice photos. I am currently reading a photo book for Dummies. Ha ya. Literally though I am. Its called: Digital Photography Workbook For Dummies. And I am actually learning real stuff about photography. Its amazing. So I hope it is paying off on my photos.

More snow descended on SAINTS this weekend, making it very pretty but pretty hard work, especially for those outside.

The snow was pretty but cold. I said to the girls outside, “How do you handle being out here all day. It’s freezing?” in which they replied something about warming up after shoveling the first wheel barrow of animal shit … haha.

But the outside, the animals who were having their shit scooped,  were snug and warm in their full winter coats.

Now because it was cold I was busy dressing up doggies in coats again of course.

Pheobe LOOKED good in hew new coat from Tammy

But she was behaving, badly (nothing new there).

I wonder what is up here?

Molly got Pheobe’s sweater that was too tight for pheobe after Brenda and I worked up the courage together to get it off her. and it looks and fit Molly great!

Now good dogs get treats … well to be honest they ALL get treats

Once a week Yoshi get bathed because he has skin issues and he hates it! Each Sunday Ashley (a vet tech that now volunteers at SAINTS) is the women for the job and she makes him look so puffy and fluffy and cute when he is done. But more importantly it helps keep his skin issues in check.  So it is a necessary evil Yoshi we are sorry honey we love you.

Cats love to snooze and hang in their little huts.

Here is Pete in his little home

Colleen was here and brought a mustache toy for the dogs to play with. The idea is that they stick the ball in their mouth an d then it looks like they are wearing a mustache .. but nobody was biting …

Paluchie had zero interest in the toy

The Cats spent the day laying around looking content but mildly bored.

Except I have no idea how Stripe and Cliff can be confortable up high on the fridge and the shelf. I suppose cats are not scared of heights and some of us are.

 Now I want to end by asking your opinion on something.  So my mom says to me on the field run on sunday, “what do you think about Bambi becoming a Hine?” I replied “what? THAT Bambi?” (pointing to uggs running around like a happy little walrus with a her tongue draging in the snow looking like a snow ball at this point. She said “yes. I adore her.”  I said, “She is no Hine.” She said “Yes she is” and it was left at that 🙂

 Photobucket

So do YOU think Bambi 1 is a HINE? and should become Maud and Daphne’s adopted sister?

and if non then who else might be a good candidate?

perhaps Prudence?
Photobucket

Or larry?

or Merry

Hey Sheila there is an idea for the Pub night to replace the save Carol’s hair contest. It could be that Carol must adopt pheobe if we raise X number of dollars 🙂

    Yes, Bambi 1 is a HINE!!! And Phoebe too…

  • audrey s. says

    Phoebe’s adoption at the pub night is a fantastic idea. lol I’ll send money! I can just see Carol’s face! lol

  • Jenn says

    I too would pay money for that audrey … except then she would also become my bratty sister 🙁 but we could set up rules like. She must refer to her as Pheoebe Hine and she must tell she loves her every morning and night hehe

  • Brenda says

    Yes, I think Bambi 1 should become a Hine. She can be the ugly stepsister – someone has to counteract all that cuteness in Daphne! Actually, Bambi 1 has a lot of spunk and spirit, and that goes right along with the Hine clan. I also think “the adoption of Phoebe” threat would be a good way to raise money – although I’m sure Tammy wouldn’t see it that way! Maybe we could add that if we don’t raise enough money all the volunteers would have to wear “Phoebe shirts” too? Wouldn’t Tammy love that – and it would sure give incentive to the rest of us to make sure we raise enough to get out of that dilemma.

  • Carol says

    yeah..pick on the other volunteers for a change…. they will have to wear a phoebe shirt every single day for at least a week…hmmm…maybe a month!…except tammy (she just made phoebe shirt number seven)…she can’t wear her phoebe shirts for the same amount of time!

  • Amy says

    I am completely NOT voted out and thanks for reminding us all to vote!

    In fact after the Pepsi Challenge was won and over with I felt let down. Even if the $$ was won. Be great to hear how that $$ was spent even if it just means Saints is all up to date with the vets bills 🙂

    Good for those further away to have an easy way to contribute with our VOTES!

  • Brenda says

    Forgot to say Jenn that all the pictures are great. I’m at work, and everyone’s just heading off to bed, so I’m enjoying looking at them all over again. You even managed to make Bambi look CUTE – or maybe it’s the angle of the lens!

  • Emma says

    Bambi 1 is a Hine for sure. Look at her! How could she not be?! Phoebe has always been a Hine its just that her Hineness is hard to see and sometimes mistaken for badness. She is a closet Hine. You should sell Phoebe t-shirts at fundraisers I think.

  • suzanne says

    LARRY!!!!

  • Jenn says

    well said Brenda. Daphne is much too cute for her own good. It would be fun to have an ugly step sister. And although Bambi 1 is very homely. There is something very cute about her too and she does hjave spunk that is for sure. I am pretty sure I am recalling an incident the other week when I put a coat on her and pheobe for some reason got very worked up about it and tried to go after her. (My mom and Nicole I think were witness to this) and Bambi wasn’t taking any of pheb’s shit stood her ground–impressive for a little walrus with no teeth. Pheobe after that was ready to murder her so phebs had to go in her room while I took the offending coat off. Once the “blue” coat was off Bambi Phebs was fine. Mom/nicole what was your take on the event?

    So yes perhaps she is a true Hine.

  • Carol says

    my take is…phoebe is a freak! she cannot stand anyone getting any kind of special attention..it drives her insane.

  • Marisa says

    LOL! Jenn, that’s brilliant about Phoebe for the fundraiser. Enough donations will get Phoebe officially adopted as a Hine and she must appear in all family photos and family trees. 🙂

    BTW, your pictures are fantastic. In this batch, I was particularly struck by the cow’s face half in shadow (is that Joy). And the little grey poodley looking dog on the bed in the purple and blue cape looks like she’s posing for a Super Hero comic.

    Have you ever thought about enlarging and selling some of your pics to raise money for SAINTS? I’m sure many of us would be interested in buying.

  • Lory says

    …or cards or calendars with your pictures. Maybe an idea for next Christmas.

    As for Phoebe…is this fair to Carol? Phoebe drives her crazy…hmmm…when do you want my donation?

  • Hillevi says

    Bambi 1 is a Hine. If not Bambi 1 then Tucker, ’cause I think Carol already loves him a lot!!! Adopt Phoebe for the Christmas fund raiser is perfect and the volunteers wearing Phoebe shirts for a month is pretty darn good too!!!!

  • Carol Ann says

    but I wouldn’t mind wearing a phoebe shirt–but then i live with precious –a heavier verson of phoebe. I’m already insane.

  • Tammy says

    What is it – pick on Phoebe day?
    It should be known that Phebes is a Hine at heart, Carol just has to realize this. Phoebe Rose Hine is always ready for a family photo.
    And yes, I just purchased Phoebe shirt #7. It’s a weakness of mine.

  • Jenn Hine says

    great then we can just borrow your pheobe shirts for the fundraiser!

  • Emma says

    Maybe Phoebe should be invited to the Fundraiser and she should wear a “Carol” t-shirt.

  • Carol says

    you guys are going to have to raise a HELLUVALOT money to get me to adopt phoebe…i think 10 grand at least!

  • Emma says

    Let the fundraising commence!

  • Sheila says

    Hey carol this adopt Phoebe idea sounds an awful lot like the one you suggested to me a few months ago – wait it is the one you suggested. So I’m guessing you don’t like your sister’s idea. I don’t know I don’t think you should be able to pick your own punishment.

  • Carol says

    lol…i don’t think i should be punished at all!

  • Helga says

    Cliff has fallen off that top shelf several times but it doesn’t seem faze him. Just yesterday he had the zoomies, went flying up there and saw Brianne sitting in his path with a ‘make my day’ look. Changed course in mid air and – THUNK!. The other day he was rolling around luxuriously and rolled right off the edge.

  • Jenn says

    Really? that is too funny. Stripe has fallen off the fridge a few times too. Perhaps they are tougher than we think.
