Crabby Monday 11

 Hello Blogville!
Toodleee-ooo Turkle!

Well, we had a question last week about our swimming pools.  Our furry, ginormous friend, Mango, asked to see pictures of our two pools.  They are a little hard to see in our crabitat because they're sorta small and natural looking.  Here are a few closer pictures so you can see better:

 Here I am, Beachnut, testing my freshwater pool with my toe before taking a plunge.  In this picture, they both have sponges in them in case we want to use them to climb out.  The little pool further back is the saltwater one.

 Now, I'm walking through the brush next to the saltwater pool.   Every now and then "The Hands" change all of our decorations around in our crabitat and so things aren't always in the same places from picture to picture. 

 This is me along the edge of my fresh pool.  I'm getting ready for a dip!
Since we're used to them now, no more sponges in there.  They were only there in case we needed them to climb our way out of the water.

 Gurgle, gurgle, gurgle.  I'm a really good swimmer...well, actually I just sort of walk along the bottom.  I like getting washed off.

All done.  Time to get out before my leggies get all wrinkled!  Teeheehee.  Doesn't my shell look all clean now?  Aaaahhhh.
Thanks for asking about us, Mango!  These close-ups of our pools were probably a lot easier to see.    We hope you like these little glimpses into our lives.  Have a great week, friends!

Little Pinches,
Shelldon & Beachnut

Half Full Friday

Hey Everyone!
Wow, another week flew by me!  It's time again for Half Full Friday.  If you're not up on this, here's the scoop:  
By participating, I'm deciding to see the glass as half full instead of half empty; I'm choosing to concentrate on the positives instead of dwelling on the negatives.  The Half Full Friday posts are a way to do just that.  They're a list of the things in my life that have brought me happiness over the past week.  I'm determined to find something good in each day.  Are you?  

 Check out our furiend, Sprinkles to see more.

So, I had a lot of good things this week and I'm glad to get to share them with all of you.

I had to go to the dogtor on Saturday.  Now, normally that's a really, really bad thing for everyone involved.  I'm not very good at this...actually the truth is that I get down right nasty about the whole business.  However, this time it was just for routine yearly junk and for some reason I got really drowsy and mellow before my appointment and didn't really care too much about the yucky stuff that was going on.  That's a nice switch for me, the dogtor and my peeps who normally have a hard time with my wickedness!  BOL.  Anyway, it was almost dreamy for me and I just napped the rest of the day away.  Strange!  When I talked to my peeps about this, they just chuckled at me.  Weird!

I found out that My Bestest Girl Zona (who could still use some healing vibes for her leggies) and I were voted Princess and Prince of the big Valentine's Day dance!  Wow, that's so great.  She's a beauty fur sure.

My crabby girls, Shelldon & Beachnut received a Blogger award from their boyfriend Turkle!  OMD were they ever excited.  That was really nice for them. 

I received The HUG Award from my good furiend, Nola.  This is so special for me and I'm totally humbled.  I passed the award on to my bestest buddy, Bert who most definitely deserves it.  BTW:  He is in urgent need of power of the paw for his icky stomach surgery.  Get well super-soon, Bert!

That about covers my week!  It was pretty good overall.  I got just enough snow to do zoomies once or twice and these awards really made me a happy pooch.   I hope all of you had a half-full week too!

The HUG Award

Hey Everyone!
Wow, I am so humbled and honored that my good furiend, Nola has given me The HUG Award.  Click on her name to check out her blog if you don't already know her.  She's a cute, sweet, fun doxie and I love her bunches.    Now, this award is really special to me because it means I have hope for the future and try to make the world better.  Gosh, I sure would like for that to be true...I do try in my own little way to keep Blogville safe, positive and fun.  Anyway, here is a little about this award.

The HUG Award© is for people who have a hope or an expectant desire that the work or talents they use in things such as blogging, public speaking, charity work, etc., will make a positive impact on the world.
These people do not have to actively use the word “hope” in their work or creative talents.  They only need be conscious of their desire to make the world a better place for everyone.
These people use their available resources–a smile, a hug, a helping hand, a listening ear, a voice, time, money, possessions, education, personality, talent, websites and blogs—to make a positive impact on the world and make the world a better place to live.

Please click on the words The HUG Award above to link to the official site if you'd like to read more.

I love all of my Blogville furiends and all of you bring joy and happiness to our community, each in your own special way.  However, I do want to nominate one special furiend to receive this from me.

To you, BERT, I pass on this award.  I feel you deserve this for all of your years of tireless service as a Search and Rescue volunteer.  This is a true gift to the world and even in your retirement you continue to give to humans with your therapy work.  Man-kind should be grateful to you and I find you to be an inspiration.  Thank you for being a good furiend and I bestow The HUG Award to you.

Thanks again Nola for thinking of me.  You are very sweet.

Crabby Monday 10

Hello Blogville!
Toodlee-oooooo Turkle!

Here's another visit from us for Crabby Monday.  Gosh we girls were so excited to hear that our dreamy Turkle gave us an award!   Here it is:
Thanks so much, sweet Turkle for thinking of us.  Now we'll tell 7 things about us.

1.  We are hermit crabs.  We are nocturnal and tropical which means we like nighttime and we like sunny hot beaches.  Here's a closeup of me, Shelldon:

2.  We live in a crabitat in Sarge's house.  It looks like this:

3.  The "hands" keep our crabitat filled with bushes, rocks, empty shells, food.  We have four little antennae that look all bent and crooked.  We use these to explore our world.   Can you see them here in this profile pix?:

4.  We sometimes drink and swim in fresh water, and sometimes in salt water.  The "hands" make sure we have both.  We have to breathe air, so when we take a dip, we come back out to breathe.

5.  For food, we eat anything you'd sniffle out on a beach.  Things like oranges, bananas, coconut, fish, eggshells.   We don't eat with our biggest claw.  That one's just for fighting, but we have a smaller one that pulls food into pieces and an even smaller one that lifts it up to our mouths.  Here's a pix of of our legs:

6.  We were competitors in Mango Minster in the Adventure Animals category because we love to climb over everything.  Sometimes we look like little tanks plowing through life.  We like to climb rocks, brush, and up the corners of our crabitat.  We went to the Blogville Valentine's Day party with our shelly date, Turkle.  We had so much fun and we really loved the new Blogville Community Park Aquatics Center.  We wore our fancy red feather boas for the occasion.  Speaking of wearing things, we sometimes change shells when we outgrow one or get tired of the same old look.  Then we get nekkid and climb into a new one!

7.  We are NOT EDIBLE!!!
 Don't even think about it, Sarge!   You do and we'll give you such a pinch!   *Giggles*

So there you go.    Now you know more about us.  We are supposed to pass this along to other blogger pals, but we'll just open it up to anyone who'd like to share about themselves.  Help yourself and thanks again, Turkle!



Ooooh, that makes us giggle!

Snicker Saturday...Word Squigglies

Hey Everyone!
Wow, here's the kick-off to your weekend!  It's Snicker Saturday time.  I thought since Blogger and its extra word verification issues seem to be on everyone's minds, I'd give you your chuckle at Blogger's expense.   Enjoy!

 Did you baryo bone in the yard?!?

 I either buried it, orate it!

I could givishid if Blogger ever uses squiggly words again!  BOL

We're speaking Sargerish!! 

I hope you have a fun-filled weekend.

Half Full Friday

Hey Everyone!
Wow, I got this cup to use for my Half Full Fridays!  Look what it says.  Perfect!
So, you all remember that this is my post to show how the past week has been half full for me.  

Well, that's easy!  This was a SUPER AMAZING WONDERFUL week in my life.
First up was the pawesome Valentine's Day party.  Thanks, Jess & Glacier for hosting this event.  I got to rock out with PawsBang and visit with all of my great furiends from all over Blogville.  It was a fabulous time.
 I had a great time with My Bestest Girl Zona.   She looked so beautiful and she's a perfect girlfuriend.  Then, I found out her dogtor visit went pretty well and she's back home and doesn't even have to wear the cone of shame!  Please stop by and give her some healing vibes.

And, before the big Vday party, I got to stretch my Long Paw of the Law and protect the streets of Blogville.  It was hard work, and I'm pretty sure I made a few furiends a little unhappy, but I'm glad to have done my duty.

AND:  My peeps bought me a new car!   Introducing our New Ru...
 Of course, she had to be decorated with the "Don't Litter, Spay Neuter Adopt"  and  "Bark" stickers from my furiends Road Dogs.   Isn't she the most hot looking Subaru since our last Subaru?!?  BOL.

AND, if that weren't is MangoMinster time!   Voting and judging is underway and there are a bunch of winners already announced.  This is such a marvelous event for all of Blogville.  My crabby girls Shelldon & Beachnut had a blast competing and every group has a great bunch of entries. Thanks, Mango for hosting a classy and fun event.

So, I think this week was WWWWAAAAAYYYYYY more than half full!  Don't you agree?!?  I hope your week was wonderful too.  Why not pawticipate in Half Full Friday and tell us all about it.  Check out Sprinkles to get the scoop.  Look at the positive side of life and tell how your week was half full.

OMD Everyone!!   The big event is finally here!   Thanks so much to Jess & Glacier for hosting such a pawesome party.  You guys thought of everything...Entertainment, yummers, raffle prizes, royalty contest and on and on.


That's right, my peeps bought a brand new camellia red pearl Subaru Forester just so that I can escort my beloved in a valentine's colored, fabulous vehicle.  

Zona girl, I surely hope this is a wonderful surprise for you and I'd be so happy if this lifts your spirits and makes you feel joyful for our big date.

Here's our official pix.  Zona has her corsage on and we are in our vday matching bandanas.  I'm crossing my paws that we get some big votes for the King and Queen contest.

I'm trading off jamming with my pals in PAWSBANG and dancing with my sweet, gorgeous Zona.

AND:  The crabby girls, Shelldon & Beachnut are having a blast too!  They're over at the new Blogville Community Park area with their date Turkle. 
They're wearing matching red feather boas and have beautiful flowers to help them celebrate and enjoy their big date.

This is all so pawesome!  I hope everyone has a blast.  I know I'll be on CLOUD NINE to be here with my Bestest Girl.

Crabby Mondays 9

Hello Blogville!   Shelldon & Beachnut here.
Toodle-oooo Turkle!
Gosh, the big Valentine's day party is almost here.  We're really excited about our date with the dreamy Turkle.  He has a beautiful shell.  Don't forget to link over and vote, buy yummers, get raffle tix etc.
 We girls have been discussing the big event and making sure we have everything all ready and coordinated for our date.
We have our bouquet ready and we've gotten our red feather boas all fluffed and set to go.  We're so happy to be going to our first big Blogville event.   We'll be checking out the new Blogville Community Park that Mayor Furter arranged for us and we can't wait to see Turkle, Froggle and Marshie and everyone else who will be there.

Don't forget that if you get into trouble, or see someone else get into trouble, you can comment to our buddy Sarge and he'll be on duty to give tickets!  Fines or bribes can be paid to help with the big Vday fund raiser.   Here's our buddy all ready to go:
See you tomorrow!

Shelldon & Beachnut
