Thankful Thursday Blog Hop:  2 Thankful Things

thankful thursday blog hop brian 06022022

Howdy everyone, thanks for stopping by for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  I am always thankful to each of you for joining us!  Each and every Thursday we share the things for which we are most thankful and we always enjoy reading all of the things you are thankful for too. If you are new to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, thanks for hopping in, we really do get excited when new blogger pals join us!

Today, I’m always thankful for lots of things, but I’m going to mention two of them.  I’m really very thankful when friends help friends.  Virginia, also know as #1 over at The Poupounette blog, was able to help those of us in Blogville who became worried when our favorite Weimaraner pups from Easy Weimaraner went missing all of a sudden.  The Weims live in France and so does #1.  Well, #1 contacted a friend of hers who lives close to the Weims and they went and checked on them.  They are okay, their internet is out and hopefully will be back soon.  I’m so thankful for friends helping friends!

Hey, I know Simon told you about his new Silvervine Sardine.  Well, I’m thankful that I got one too.  I think mine must have been really dirty because I licked and lick and licked it until it was all cleaned up.  I’m thankful that as a senior guy I still enjoy some toy fun.  Hey, I even purrticipate in our evening play time sessions.  Thanks for the new toy Dad!

Okyy gang, that’s it for me.  So, what are you thankful for today?  Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

That was indeed nice of Virginia to help everyone find out that the Easy Weimaraner peeps and pups are okay. I’m glad you got a silver one sardine, Brian! Looks like you’re having fun!

We become so in tune with each other here in blog land, it is a concern when someone goes missing suddenly, and it’s a joy that we look out for each other as best we can.

My kitties haven’t tried silvervine, but one of these days i’m going to get them some. It’s just so much easier to find catnip in the stores.

What a relieve that Phenny, Nelly and family allright. We sure were worried when we didn’t hear anything anymore, Brian. Yes, that’s where furriends are for💗 Now you also have a great furriend, named Silvervine, huh…MOL…Pawkisses for a wonderful day to all of you🐾😽💞

I was relieved when I heard the Weims and family were okay. It was kind of Virginia to find out for us all. You are really enjoying your sardine!

Our #1 (aka Virginia) was so happy that she was happy to help, and it was a great coincidence that she knew someone who lives only 10 minutes from the Weims! All’s Well That Ends Well!

Silvervine is definitely a friend to be thankful for, Brian!

We were very happy Miss Virginia let us know that Katty and the Weims were OK and this morning on Facebook is a post from their phone….still working on the internet. We’re thankful that friends are looking out for each other these days too. Looks like that sardine is mighty tasty and “sniffable” Brian……..good job!! Thanks for hosting the THANKFUL hop.

Hugs, Teddy

Oh BRIAN…I would love a silvervine sardine. I think I must scratch mom to serve as a reminder to look for one when she is out and about.

Brian, i am jealous of your toy. My old nanner is getting weak in the nippy stuff. Maybe Lynn
will take action after letting me see your Thankful blog. I am thankful Lynn and I have 5 days
home alone. I am a happy cat when it is just her. I am such a fraidy cat. Precious

The Weims have been pretty quiet. We figured they went to visit family in Germany or something. Glad they are alright.

Friends helping friends is a very good thing. Lots of wonderful people on the Internet.

You did a great job cleaning up your toy. We need baths and so do our toys.

We were so glad to hear the Weim bros and their parents were all okay and it was just a case of the internet misbehaving. You sure look like you’re enjoying that toy.

A million thank yous for the info on Da Twinies and Staff. I have been going by every day to check. I thought maybe they were on a trip to visit the Grandparents in Germany and maybe I missed the information on their trip.
Amazing how the blogville help line went active lickety split

those are some great thankfuls! I have been busy, so didn’t know the Weims were missing! Glad everyone is ok for sure!

I like you, Brian and Terry, are thankful for those who help others. It still seems to be quite a rare thing unfortunately. However, with places like the Cat Blogosphere and others, that spread the word, perhaps that will become more mainstream.

Good for you for not giving up on the Silvervine Sardine! Sometimes all it takes is a good licking.


We too are thankful that the Weimies and their furmily are all OK.

Silvervine; Minko never got to try it, and Pipo didn’t seem to react to it as much as catnip. Glad your got a good cleaning!

Whoa! I haven’t had the ‘vine in a long time. So glad you’re playing again. Also glad for friends who check in on friends. The Twitter anipals are good at things like that. We’ve already had the police checking on those who go missing.
