4 Faves – Miura & Zonda Version

Posted by lori . 11 Comments


Back in July, Bunny, from Tales and Tails, suggested that Freedom and Casper share their 4 Faves (Nikki wasn’t in the picture yet).  Miura and Zonda (Freedom, Casper & Nikki’s friends), loved it so much, they wanted to share their faves too.  I couldn’t resist…so, every week in November PETS RULE!, and they’ll be sharing 4 of their favorite things along with their moms.  Since they were the inspiration…Miura and Zonda (and their mom, Amy) are up first.

My girls, unlike Casper and Freedom, could NOT agree on favorites, so I let them each pick two. Of course, they both picked things the other one hates. 🙂

From Miura – WATER!!!
Water is the best. It is awesome in a kiddie pool because I can snorkel and try to catch the pictures, and I can cool down and keep playing when it is hot since I overheat. My sissy sister is afraid of getting any water on her. I also love being in the water at the edge of Lake Michigan and she won’t even get her feet wet. Fine with me ‘cuz the splashing fun is all mine!

From Zonda – POOSICLES
For those who don’t know, a poosicle is available only when that white stuff is on the ground and I have to wear a coat… it is a magical thing that happens that makes my poo solid and yummy! I love eating poosicles. Mom yells at me to drop them, but she won’t try them so she doesn’t know what she is missing.  Who is she to judge since I see her eat something that looks just like it? She calls this “chocolate” and she says it is not good for dogs and won’t share. That’s cool ‘cuz I am not sharing poosicles! (She won’t post a picture of me with a poosicle, only in my winter coat). 🙁

From Miura – JEEP RIDES
On the days the parents try to sleep longer and feed us later that they call “weekend,” Dad gets up and puts on his baseball cap first thing – this is how I know I get to ride in the Jeep!!!! I jump around with joy, joy, joy. Zonda
tries to hide and stay with mom – I have no idea what they do but it certainly is not a Jeep ride. We go to McDonald’s and bring back food. I like these days because they lay around with us and don’t go away. I know the next day they take us on a long special walk, but I’m not sharing what gives that away. 🙂

I love, love, love mom! Sometimes I miss her so much I get on her side of the bed while she is at work (and I am not supposed to get on the bed!) She only knows I do this when I forget a toy up there. Some days I miss her super extra and if I can find any clothes laying around that smell like her, I chew on them to make myself feel better. She had a favorite sweater that I “loved on” one day and she was so sad it had holes she couldn’t fix. Mom just needs to be with me all the time and her clothes would be safe.

Mom’s notes…Both girls are really good but I let Zonda share her adorable quirks. What are her favorites things make me shake my head, but she is 99% a good girl. Miura and Zonda are absolutely my favorite things!

Amy’s Favorites – To Make Everyday Feel More Special

Malden Mills Polarfleece Sheets

Polarfleece sheets are soooo amazing. They are very lightweight and soft.  When you get in bed on a cold night there is no chill like percale. I like Malden Mills brand from QVC. They come in great colors and wash perfectly, just avoid fabric softener. Try them with the QVC 30-day guarantee. 🙂 I can’t express how nice these make sleeping!

Caribbean Gem Jewelry Cleaner

I use Caribbean Gem Jewelry Cleaner every day. I drop in my wedding ring before getting in the shower and then just rinse it off and put it on when I am done getting ready. I still get regular compliments on my ring 7 years later because it stays sparkly. Caribbean Gem is made from banana & coconut oil and is safe for all jewelry, plus it smells yummy.

Ceramic Knife & Peeler

Okay, so this is a “who knew!” type of revelation…I just found out that it is metal knives that make lettuce and fruit discolor after you cut or peel them. If you use a ceramic knife, your food stays nice looking longer. I got this nice knife and peeler set to “up” my game. You do need to be careful storing them because they chip easily.
$44.95 on Amazon

KitchenAid ProLine Waffle Maker

The KitchenAid ProLine Waffle Maker is a splurge, but if you use it on the weekends for special breakfasts, it is well worth it. It does two waffles at once and because you invert after putting in the batter, the waffles are soooo fluffy. It is such a beautiful appliance. It is easy to adjust darkness and crispiness and comes with a recipe book to make other variations. I love everything KitchenAid. 🙂

Thank you, Amy, Miura and Zonda.  You have some great faves…except for poosicles (sorry, Zonda).

  • What a great list of favourite things!!

    I have too many to choose from.

    The Lady Of The House is going to see if we can get some of that jewellery cleaner over here in the UK because she says it sounds MUCH nicer than one she uses.

    Love and licks, Winnie

  • Patty says:

    You have a great list! I’m really not sure what would be on mine. I have to think about that for a while.

  • houndstooth says:

    Both lists are awesome! I am sitting here nodding and giggling over parts of the girls’ list. 😀 And this reminded me that I need to get off my behind and get my list to you! I’ll try to work on that this weekend — I’m behind deadline. Yikes!

    • lori says:

      No problem, Carrie. I have next week set, so you have time. I’m so glad you’re going to be one of the guest bloggers!

  • Kari says:

    I love the girls list 🙂

    Stop on by for a visit

  • Kirsten says:

    Those polarfleece sheets look like just the thing!

    Dogs have such simple loves…water, poo, all the good things in life are free.

    • lori says:

      Thanks for visiting, Kirsten. Your comment about “simple loves” is absolutely true! Our pets teach us so much.

  • Kat says:

    Nice take on the 4 faves! And the poosicles? Oh my. 😀

  • Mayzie says:

    Well, I would Most Definitely agree abouts the rides (even though we don’t have a jeep). But I stay as FARRRRR away from waters as I can. In fact, I am Most Concerned about Miura standing in that water. Hasn’t she heard that Most Beautiful Brindle Furs can MELT right off? It’s true!

    Gosh, that yo-yo flower sure is pretty!

    Wiggles & Wags,

    • Amy says:

      Zonda agrees Mayzie… Water is no good. You see in the Dewey beach picture she is between mom and dad so that evil stuff doesn’t get her.

  • Kristin G. says:

    Those are some cool choices for sure, and now I’m craving waffles. 🙂
