Fezzik Friday - 41 Weeks and Winners...

Hi, everybody!
It's time for another Fezzik Friday!

Everybody has been asking how Kessie is, so I thought I'd share my post with her this week. I know. "Another pool post", you say, but really. If you had a full-time fur coat, lived in 80º weather and had your very own pool as a way to stay cool, what would you do?

The other exciting thing is that Mom let me click the Random Number Generator (twice!) to pick the two winners of our Second Blog Birthday celebration. Now, don't peek ahead. I have a story to tell you first!
It all started with one of my favorite toys. The blue rubber ball. I was rolling it around on the pool deck, like I usually do and sploosh! Right into the pool. Kessie was standing there watching it, and being the retriever she is...
into the pool we both went! I'm not much for water retrieves (yet), but I just couldn't resist when she jumped in.
Of course, Kessie got to the ball first and then the two of us swam to the stairs. I promptly took the ball away from her, but she didn't really seem to care.
As long as I was already wet, I figured I might as well enjoy a little swim. I think Kessie agreed.
She jumped onto the swim-out with me, and she decided to go in while I watched. She really has that dog paddle down pat!
How can a corgi compete with that technique? I mean, look. She steers with her tail!
And, while I was showing the proper respect. Yup! She walked off with MY ball. Man! A corgi gets no respect around here!

Guess, if I want some respect, I should choose the winners of Mom's Second Blog Birthday giveaway.
No April Fools around here!!!
The winner of First Choice from the mug mat gift packages is
Miss Judy

The winner of Second Choice in the giveaway is
Miss Sue K.
Beyond The Cellar

Please contact Mom and tell her which mug mat you'd like so that she can put together your prize packages. (Just go back to the giveaway post here and choose which one you'd like. Miss Judy gets to pick first, so Miss Sue, please give first and second choices in case Miss Judy picks the one you like.)

Well, time to end another week's adventure. See you again next week! 'til then...

I love Fezzik Friday's whether it Kes or Fezzik, it doen't matter. They're both so darn cute.

Congrats to the winners.

Have a great weekend...Tracy :)

Yo Fez! You're a good brother! Lettin Kes get that ball was a very big dog decision. I woulda done the same thing. Mostly my brothers don't give an inch. I'm slower so they grab everything first. But my mom looks out for me, especially when everybody gets cheese cause Junior gets some everyday with a pill.

You know, pal, I worry about you tryin that dog paddle move. Your legs are pretty short. Hope you can float!

You're a good number picker. Even if you didn't pick MY mom, you still did good kid.

Enjoy the pool. That stinkin white stuff is 'posed to fall from the sky again today.
Have a good one.
Your pard,
Jackie Chan

Hi Fezzik,
Do you prefer to be called Fez or Fezzik? I think that Mom should buy two balls and then you could both chase one, but of course I understand that this one is your favorite.

It's nice that you share.

Congrats to the winners too. You did a good job.

nancy huggins said...

Looks like you had fun Freezik...great way to cool off :)
Congrats to the 2 winners :)

Createology said...

Hi Fez: How coy of you to trick Kes into a swim by retrieving your blue ball. Maybe you better perfect your own dog paddle and steering technique as you and Kes are built quite differently. You are one smart guy to figure out how to cool off on a warm sunny day in the pool.
Congratulatons winners.
Happy weekend to all...

MosaicMagpie said...

It is good to see you both enjoying the pool. Fez, I believe you have brought the puppy out in Kes. That my boy is a grand thing!
Congratulations to the winners!

OMG!! I am so happy to be a winner of one of your mugmats! I'll be sending you an email with my info.
Thanks so much!

Your pool looked so inviting (especially since we still have freezing weather here and haven't been able to open ours up yet)
I can see why Fezzik & Kessie would want to jump right in.
