Pirate Party Wednesday

We are joining the Speedy’s Annual Pirate Party event today. Sam isn’t  keen on getting dressed up as you can tell here, but he adores Speedy and is always willing to walk the plank for fur-iends.

So ahoy, mateys. Don’t be a scalawag today.

Avast Ye Mates…

Many of you have contacted me about the issue of your comments disappearing on our blog and some of you have indicated that some of my comments have been pillaged off to your spam folders. We’re working on it with the nice blokes at WordPress and hope you’ll be patient while they try to figure out why Akismet thinks I’m a bot. Shiver me timbers…I’m not even Russian. Aaaarrrrgggghhhh! 

Live, love, bark! 🐾

    FANTASTIC!!! Comments vanishing – posts and comments being hived off to the Spam directory – I thought it was just me and have been growing more and more frustrated with the computer and looking (too fondly) at the sledgehammer in the tool shed. But in fact it’s not just you on my computer it is happening to others,

      Sorry to hear that. It’s frustrating to have problems and no clue how to fix them. Fingers crossed the computer gods will have mercy on us.

      Egad, you’re right, Erin…we better send that hat back to Davy Jones’ Locker. Sam would be very upset to lose one single sardine morsel out of his bowl.

      Thank you, Ruby. Sam feels a bit better knowing it wasn’t all for naught after nice comments like yours. 😊

      Got your comment today. You’ll know if it doesn’t post-it just disappears so I’m told. Then shows up hours later. 😳 I think I need some grog or rum.

    The outfit would have also looked great on Elsa, but I am sure she would not have kept it on long enough for a picture. Long-suffering Sam. Hope you got extra treats today.

      I tried to deck Elsa out in it, she tried to eat it. But I get the last laugh…today she tried to eat a hand-milled bar of lavender soap that was a birthday gift I hadn’t put away yet. I don’t she’ll be doing that again soon. LOL

      It was too ridiculous not to at least get one photo out of it. And I’d probably take that bottle of rum for myself. 😇

    That is ADORABLE! This is the first year we didn’t participate in Speedy’s event 1) It’s a BIG Jewish holiday (and frankly I should NOT be online lol) 2) Their blog stopped coming to my inbox with a bunch of others who aren’t coming and I won’t have time to go and see everyone’s posts on Facebook and all. Hopefully we will return next year (if we are still blogging lol)……………

    Shadow and Ducky are with Sam 100 percent! They – and older sisters Callie and Kissy – hated it when I would play “dress up” with them, especially if it meant wearing a hat! So I stopped doing it altogether. The only thing they have to wear other than their collars/harnesses is their raincoat or a bandanna.

    I don’t recall having trouble with disappearing comments on your blog; but I’m glad the folks at WP are working with you to fix the problem.

      Sam thinks he’s being punished if he has to wear a hat. It’s hilarious.

      The disappearing comment issue is intermittent and inconsistent. The latest problem is the system doesn’t see me as logged in and the ‘like’ button doesn’t function until I do. I’m exhausted trying to figure out what’s going on. This is no way to run a blog! 👿

      The fish nuggets would definitely be better than that silly hat. 😉 Thanks again for the heads up last night. Appreciate it.
