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! 🐾

Is Sam really that patient? I am impressed. And even able to pause and pose for the camera!
Not so much patient as resigned. ☺️
Ahoy me hearty <3 Pawkisses for a Happy Day 🙂 <3
Right back atcha, Binky. 😍
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.
“The things I do for my human…” Sam, keeping it real…
Yeah I paid for his humiliation all day with Lord Stubborn. 😁
🙂 Can’t say I blame him…
LOL But you gotta admit, it WAS worth that expression, right?! 😂
Sam, you are such a good sport! ♥
You are a splendid Pirate!!
Thank you for being part of the Thankful Thursdays with us, its much appreciated.
Our pleasure…and thank you for swinging by the Ranch. We 💜 visitors, especially cute kitties.
I’m with Sam on this one, I don’t think I’d like that Octopus on my head either! Arrr!
Those dangly legs would drive me nuts and I’m a hat lover!
Ahoy and avast, matey! Seems like ye have a stowaway on board, and I dare say he’s after ye supply of fish suppers! Hope ye makes port before he suckers you into spilling the beans as to where ye treasure is burried!
Yo ho ho and a bottle of nip rum to to keep ye tum warm!
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.
And Ye Be a Fine looking Pirate Cap’n Sam. Glad ye could join thee throng!xx Speedy
Thanks Speedy. As always you host great parties with loads of fun.
….splendid job adjusting sails….steady as she goes…..🐬🐬🐬
Blimey! Ye look so dashing! Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day ♥
You look great Mate!! Plus you look like a very kind pirate, you wouldn’t make anyone walk the plank, right?
He’s a lot like Johnny Depp’s Captain Sparrow. A lovable knucklehead. 🤣
The best kind of pirate to be! 🙂
You are a very good sport, Sam – and a super adorable pirate!
Thank you, Ruby. Sam feels a bit better knowing it wasn’t all for naught after nice comments like yours. 😊
Oh Sam, Max feels your pain. He knows the humiliation of dog costumes. Call the dog union. Take this matter to arrrrrrbitration.
Bwahaha. The shop steward is on it. No one messes with the Ninja.
You were in my spam a few days back but today you are right there on the post! Yay! Maybe it’s fixed?
I wish it were so. The like button won’t work unless I log in on E.v.e.r.y. single blog. 😬 Thanks for letting me know.
And even on some, it won’t work at all even after re-logging in. 🤯
No chance of dressing up my lot….they would be on my like a shot to prevent it…all for one and one for all is their motto!
Proving once again the theory of pack mentality.
Hope you are getting our comments. Shiver me timbers?.?? Timber wonders what’s up with that. BOL. Happy Pirates Day!
Woos – Cap’n Lightning, First Mate Lass Misty, and Powder Monkey Timber
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.
Ahoy Mateys! Ya make for a fine lookin’ Pirate!
Me crew and me is off to find our buried treasure!
Meet ya at da Inn for some Grog later?
Captain Aaaaarrrrgggty and his mates Queen Rosy da Rebel and One Eared Jakey
Oooh, grog? YES!
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
Foaming at the mouth. Don’t let anyone see that, or they’ll be yelling “rabies!”
Oh for the the love of our humans😉
💜nose nudges 💜
Sam would definitely agree with you, Olivia!
Trust me, not a scary bone in that body. 😁
You’re a very good sport, Sam! Good
Aye, he is that!
Sam, Sam, Saminy, Sam. I think your mom may have jumped the shark with this outfit. My best advice is to grab a rum bottle and ride out the stormy sea on this one matey.
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. 😇
You’re way too nice to be a Russian bot! Have a good one, matey….
Tell that to Akismet!
We would definitely celebrate the day if we had a cute hat like yours.
Somehow, cuteness doesn’t seem to ‘impawtant’ in Sam’s mind.
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)……………
Absolutely adorable costume!
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! 👿
Bummer! Hope you can get it fixed!!
Me too. the prospect of slitting my wrists is unattractive.
I wouldn’t bee too keen on having to wear an octopus on my head either. Maybe one of the cardboard hats from Long John Silver’s will suffice?
The fish nuggets would definitely be better than that silly hat. 😉 Thanks again for the heads up last night. Appreciate it.
Sam this hat is the dernier cri… I want one and da nelly too… but he would probably eat it immediately ! awwwhoy!
Tell Nelly velvet tastes terrible.
