L is for Lazy LS

Sorry we have not been around much lately. Thanks to LS (again). She was supposed to take just a couple of days off but ended up with a 10 days break. During this time, she has morphed into a sloth.

Recently the chinese here celebrated the Chinese New Year. Firecrackers and fireworks are pretty much synonyms with this celebration. Over here, fire crackers are supposedly to be banned though. Who were they kidding?

Look at me...

This is where I've been spending most of the nights during the celebration. All the explosion sound from the firecrackers were just too much for me. I've never been so glad when it's over.

Do you know if there's any doggie ear plugs for sale? LS said she hasn't seen one but I thought I'd better double check.

On another note, we've recently joined in the fun of Pay It Forward by Huskee and Hershey. I've just received a parcel from them. Thanks Huskee & Hershey! I can't wait to open it but LS said I have to wait till she recharges her camera battery. How long can that take? With LS, that can really be a long time. Sorry, Huskee & Hershey. I'll do my best to morph her out of her sloth state soon.

Hi, Happy...

That's a cozy little hiding spot...I'm sure those firecrackers can't get to you there...

Pay It Forward is a fun game...I played it, too...

Abby xxxooo

Achilles Wong said...

hey happy! we love pay it forward too! i think firecrackers and dogs do not mix well... the earplug suggestion sounds really cool. LS could invent one for a change. it would be such a hoot for us!

we are glad the 'explosions' are done with. i bet all the negative vibes had already recoiled to their hiding holes, clearing the path for the new year!

hope LS de-sloths real soon...

drooly kisses,


Moco said...

Nothing like a good period of slothing around, but we have missed Thankful Thursday.
We hope all those firecrackers are over now so you can get back to some restful evenings.

Bobby said...

I wish they would ban fireworks, I hate them to.

I thought it was the year of the ox?

Sorry woo have been rattled by the boomers!


Mason Dixie said...

I hide in the tub when there are fireworks or under mom night stand. I do not like them either. =)

Eric said...

See if the sloth will get you and I-Pup instead of earplugs. That should block out the fireworks and get your rapping..

Wags, Eric xx

Hi! I'm Grace said...

Oh, I'm so sorry for the dog. It reminds me of my dog one time, there was continuing fireworks, then later, I just found him inside the dish keeper. Poor dog!
Yeah, they say that sounds like that are very uncomfortable to dogs. They are sensitive in sounds.

LS is not the only lazy human. Mine hasn't helped me blog for a while too! Too busy with CNY and work, she says...bah...hum bug!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Happy!
Don't be afraid of firecrackers! Bark at them! I do that!
Kisses and hugs

That was a nice hiding place. You should ask the vet about using ear plugs. I use them at night to sleep and they block out EVERYTHING.

I have missed you both very much, love you both.

Peggy said...

Hi Happy and LS...Many Blessings...
Now I know it wasn't just me! Sorry that we haven't seen each other for so long...before I had computer problems & internet, then busy too.

Well, Happy...Fireworks are common for many things here also and these people are Mexican not Chinese so they can't be celebrating the Chinese New Year! We all just yap up a storm! I use to hide like you
(ok sometimes I still do) but I usually start the tough barks & soon they all stop that noise!

Looking forward to many more! Thanks for visiting us so I know you are both alright & doing well I hope! I just checked your 1st DOT & TT(I haven't done either yet this year)and you had 65 yelps. WOW! How do you visit all those? I really miss visiting you both! Good catching up! I have that same trouble with camera batteries dying when I need them.

can we be freinds?

Hi LS,
Our mom was a lazy bum bum throughout the Chinese New Year period too.. she did nothing but eat, watch TV, eat, sleep, watch TV.. (ok you get the drift).
Glad that you received the parcel (I have to check cos mom is ummm.. quite careless and I was worried she got the wrong address and sent it to Never Never Land)..

Poor Happy.. I hope you dont hear any scary firecrackers anymore

Rambo said...

I don't like any loud noises. Loud stuff makes me shake. I run upstairs and hide in the big bed.
Tell LS to google "Mutt Muffs" and she will find ear muffs for dogs. They are pretty expensive $54 (I guess I'm not worth it cause I don't have them)

Fred said...

Good luck finding the ear plugs! Your hiding spot does look cozy, though. :)

Dughallmor Beagles said...

Wooo, that hiding spot looks tight! Glad the fireworks are gone now and you can be Happy Happy again :o)
We're about to do a Pay it Forward too, can't wait for the fun to start!
Slobbers xx

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

2 of the Heeler's don't need those ear plugs. Sometimes it is nice being deaf.. Of course I get yelled at and they don't since I can hear..

Maggie and Mitch said...

What a bummer about the fireworks, Happy! I hate them too and I'd be hiding in that cubby with you! We hope they're over soon for you!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Hi Happy, you are not alone, I'm scared of loud explosion too, except for my barking.
Can't wait to see your pressies!

Ruby said...

Hi Happy.
I'm glad the fireworks are over for you, they can be realy scary to alot of pups.
I can't wait to see the contents of your parcel.
Love Ruby

Katie and Gizmo said...

Hi Happy,

Sorry you don't like loud noises like fireworks.
You should hide in the laundry with the washing machine going.
My mum read somewhere that the noise and vibration of a washing machine helps to calm dogs afraid of thunder and fireworks.
We don't know if it works or not but if you try it and it does, let us know.


Amber-Mae said...

I actually enjoy watching the fireworks go on. I really do! If I cannot see it clearly over the wall in my porch, my Mommy will carry me(she says I'm damn heavy!) so that I can see it clearer & I will watch till it's over.

Fireworks are scary. I don't like them either!

the 4 Bs said...

hi Happy, we don't like fireworks either. it's a bummer. we hope the fireworks have stopped by now and you can relax again.


Mary said...

Meeko was never afraid of thunderstorms but he didn't like fireworks. He didn't hide, but he did stay close to hubby and I.

I'm not sure how Dakota will accept things. He does jump if you drop anything but he seems to be settling in well. He has slept quite a bit today. I hope that doesn't mean he will be up all night.

Take care and enjoy your weekend.

Oh I don't like those loud noises either, but i don't hate them as much as my brother Chase or my sister Angel. They can be scary!

I´m glad those firecrackers are over now and you can take some rest. You found a good place to hide.
Glad you are back. I´ve missed you. Mom comes back to work and I have been so behind in blogging.
