I wasn’t shut out!

I was feeling blue (with an orange beak) because this past holiday, the peeps got presents and the dogs got presents. Nothing for the blue bird of paradise.


Not only that, look at this pet tree. All about dogs (Kenzie, Kyla, Kaci and Kali) and not a darn thing about this partridge in a pear tree.




Luckily, I have friends who come to the rescue. One is (Kyla’s name for him) Sugar Billy from the Nati. Look at this, a bird toy for the tree!


With friends like that, I can’t go wrong. I guess I’ll pay SWTS his 2016 fee to be my friend for the year :). Then the peeps started taking down the Christmas stuff-SQUAAAAWK-wait. I want that in my cage so don’t pack it away. Yes, it was done as I commanded.


Now I can enjoy it all year instead of just December.

Other friends heard of my plight, namely the South Florida trio of Sidney, Shelby and Sophie of corkscot. It must be a looney bin there because whoever heard of naming all your pets with names that start with the same letter? We’ll gloss over what was for the dogs (my guess is that it was Sophie’s choice because although it is beautiful, it is another dog ornament),


and get to the good stuff. It’s a Kismet ornament for the tree


Do you see that-I’m back in the game with my own ornaments!!!

To Sugar Billy and the Corky trio, from the bottom of my four chambered heart, SQUAAAAAWK and thank you  for restoring my faith in dogs.


I have my New Year’s resolution. I won’t bad mouth a dog again this year, well, maybe this month, but then again this week. Oh hell, I hope I make until tomorrow.

  1. Go ahead and badmouth the dogs. They will think you’re sick if you don’t. All of us will.

    Love your decorations. Finally your just rewards.

    Have a birdtastic day. My best to your peeps. ☺

  2. We love the bird one that the S’s mom made.

  3. Our tree was covered with little birdy ornaments with a few squirrels tossed in. You should come visit our birds sometime, Kismet! They rule the roost! The dogs know who tossed them food and the cockatoo rules.

  4. WE are GLAD that you FINALLY gotted somethingy fur YOURSELF this Kismet Season. Guess the Squawky Bird DOES get the STUFFS, after all.
    That Sugar Billy is a super duper Guy, Isn’t he? WE met him in the FURS you know….

  5. Hey Kismet…. you could take a look at the Pawlander and Pick a Date… Declare it KISMET DAY…. and then Everybuddy will send you CARDS and Pressie Packages and stuffs… WE would be VERY MUCH happy to send you 87 Snow Freaks….

  6. All toys are bird toys if you believe in yourself.

  7. ROFL…..Oh KIsmet, you can pay me to be your friend for a year too. K? “K” – GET IT???? WOOT! This peepstress is on the ball.

  8. BOL New Year’s resolutions are overrated. I think your peeps should give you your own personal pear tree for Christmas.

    Aroo to you,

  9. I made sure it had a bell at the end so you can ring for room service! Be careful what you say or they might wash you mouth out with the other gift.

    • I had to wait until Kismet was preoccupied-she’s ringing the bell on her new ornament right now. She didn’t want to post another doggie thing, but I do. Just don’t tell her I did it, OK? Here’s the other gift you sent-washing her mouth out with it is a great idea that certainly beats baths with it for Kaci and me.

  10. The 4 S’s are happy that you are happy Kismet. We didn’t want you to be left out. We appreciate the work that you have done in taking over the blog. We get a different perspective with you at the helm.

  11. Happy New Year to all! I was saved from going to the school when the petsitter took me for Christmas! Love that girl!

  12. Way to score, K-bird. Happy New Year!

  13. Loving your ornaments! they are bright and cheerful like you! Happy New Year!

  14. Luv your ornaments! My momma thought of you when she hung up her parrot oranment dis year. Aroooo – errr, squawk??

  16. Nice ornaments ! Glad you got to keep one of them in your cage…..now you can celebrate Christmas all year long and the dogs CAN’T !!

    Hugs, Sammy

  17. Oh Kismet, even my Corky parrot gets special treats on Christmas! It is not fair for you to be left out of the holiday fun. I am glad you received some wonderful gifts from blog friends. Maybe next year your peeps will get it right!

  18. We are shocked,,,,no APPALLED that you were overlooked, and delighted that members of your fan club sent tributes to remind you that you are TOP BIRD. Is your email somewhere on this blog?…I would like to get your address so you will receive even more tributes Christmas 2016. Your pal, Skyler
